What's New in Version 4.8
New fix for live video bar crash, plus all previous fixes for weather bookmarks, time stamps and comments.
Terrible content, clunky interface
Update- The app is still terrible. The news is not updated over the weekend and the "featured" slideshows look like a middle school kid's presentation.
Unless you like many notifications telling you that I83, I81, or rt 30 have an accident at 12am stay clear of this app. Most of the other notifications have little to no content associated with the headline - the app just restates the headline! What a joke of a news app.
The interface is also clunky. Some of the stories that you might want to read are often cut off at the bottom with no possibility of scrolling.
Not a go-to for weather
I only downloaded this for weather, so the other parts might be okay. I was looking for more specific weather info on our area than the Weather Channel app, but this does not give it. For instance, the predictor is just a series of photos showing the eastern seaboard and how they think the storm system will advance. Again, my 2 stars are specifically for that section of the app, because I thought a weather leader in the Susquehanna Valley would have better, more localized info.
I gave it one star because I find this app to be highly inconvenient. Has anyone else noticed that just about every article you click on requires you to click a link to read the entire article on the internet?? I got the app because I'm supposed to be able to read the news without having to use other apps on my phone. Every other news app I have allows me to see articles right in the app as well as school closings/delays, pictures and other area
information. Get it together WGAL or I'm not using this app or your news.
