Great app SYR9

I live in Utica NY, an area with very limited news and weather. I can always count on this Syracuse station (which neither cable nor satellite in my area carry) to come thru with news alerts, 24/7. Be sure and get their weather app also if you live in CNY. You'll get instant info on breaking news and breaking weather with these two apps. Great reporting.

Could be better

Too many non-alert alerts. I don't care when high school kids win tournaments or some minor business news. Also the weather radar should be on your initial screen. When I go to your site which is 4-5 times a day I want to see what the weather is doing. Also I would like to see traffic blockages given more emphasis.

Keeps getting worse.

I originally downloaded this app for the weather but they have improved it to the point where it’s practically useless. I like the radar maps because I like to check where the storms are in relation to my location. The maps are so tiny you can hardly read them. They don’t expand to fill the screen, nor do they rotate when the phone is rotated to landscape orientation. I have had to go elsewhere for my weather info.
