What's New in Version 4.13.1
Mediocre app, worse new reporting
First off, this app is rather buggy. It is slow to load, pops up large adds, and worst of all, keeps making my iphone 4 crash.
Also, news channel 5 is really not a good news source anyway. In the "news" section there is lots of annoying sports stories and and pop culture garbage. NC5 is the first one to bring up distracting and often irrelevant information such as race, and the last one to give real facts. Also, their habit of inserting "alleged" in front of any allegation that does not fit their agenda is aggravating. Not to mention their comments section are simply a group of trolls, most notably "bob cole".
Do yourself a favor, download WKRN, or if you still want to read nc5, use the website.
This used to be a good app. It has become less useful and more difficult to use with each revision. Now when you click on "Read more" to read the story it places a preview of the video over the text you are trying to read. The preview moves up and down the page as you scroll the text and prevents you from reading the story in an in your face effort to make you watch the video. And I don't like the "Trending" stuff. People want local news and weather. The weather displays so small you can't see it.
Worst news app ever
First clue: when opening a notification about "breaking" news one is never linked directly to the story. Instead you're directed to the home page. You can never find the "breaking" story.
It's so frustrating I'm deleting the app and relying on channel 2 for breaking stories. My most trusted news source needs app help.
