Always on top all events and weather

Can always rely on 8 news when it comes to all events and weather. No one can top them. Been a channel 8 news watcher since I was young. Keep up the great work😃. Still on top of everything! Keep up great work!

8 news app, older version easier

Well I haven't finished exploring all areas. I'm disappointed with the weather part the older version was so much easier to navigate. Things like humidity and dew point was easy to find, the newest version humidity is buried and it takes a while to get to, forget trying to find Dew Point! Wish they would change that.

Ruined it

This was a good app that I used often. Especially liked the map weather feature. Now that’s gone. App not as user friendly. Can’t choose what to see first. More ads and poor map feature. Very disappointed. Won’t be using this app anymore.
