Wow! Channel5 u have outdone yourself. This is app is wonderful with great features and exquisite taste. I laud all employees of WCVB located in Needham, Massachusetts. Congrats on such a tremendous app and being the best news station in Massachusetts and better than WBZ, WHDH, Fox 25, and NECN. Adios!!!!!!
Like being able to tune into the news any time and selecting stories of interest. Do wish for better graphic design on galleries -- different pic sizes with "next" button at the bottom makes scrolling through gallery very annoying task.
Robust Content, Well Presented
Good way to catch headlines, or get deeper stories. Obviously put together by people who know news and website development. Could be better if live streaming would regularly be available. By the way, when streaming, why have down time instead of just letting the ads run?
