What's New in Version 2.5.3
- Fixed some compatibility bugs for iOS7.
- Other bug fixes & enhancements.
I wish this app had links to the full website (like the Numbers & Links) to get info on televised stories not listed in the headlines. I also find it strange that I cannot access the full website through safari or google on my mobile or tablet device. Without these access or more features it's no better than general news apps
Listen to their slogan
Only on optimum never on fios never on statilite know before you go. That means that only optimum user can use this app not fios not time warner and not stupid comcast xfinity
I've waited over a year for this to get fixed!!!
I still can't log in as a comcast customer! It just. Tells me that I have to confirm my email with the link you sent me but I never got an email from you. What happened? I used to be able to log in with no problem before but once you changed the app a year ago nobody who isn't a cablevision customer can't log in. Please fix this.
