Great app

The app has a lot of delays in the past. Since they updated it I have no problems with it now. I moved to Florida a few years ago and I love being able to see all of the unique teams of reporters. The news teams give a fresh and diverse look at the local and national news story’s with a flair of personalities. Here in Tampa , it the same old non energetic, boring ,blond hair newscasters giving the “Only in Florida Type Stories. “ Feels just like being at home in the DMV using the Fox 5 app. Please add the smartcast technology to it so I can put on the big screen.

Grossly inadequate app/Great news station

I finally had to drop my review from three stars to one. Have any of the developers actually tried to live with this app? The notifications are buggy. The alerts have problems but even when I disable these annoyances, the app is basically useless for watching the live feed. Over the past year I basically have a 15% success rate getting the live feed to work. The commercials they try and make you watch are what kill the feed. Terrible job. The fox 5 news team is amazing and I love all the anchors. I'm a true fox 5 fan but this app is suboptimal and the developers have had enough time to get it right. I'll be switching my news team now because I have to get my news someplace.

Ok news provider

I have a few concerns with this app for news. I don't see the need to receive repeated notifications for the same news story within an hour. I noticed a tad bit of media bias in regards to the story's that are shown on this app. It is quite apparent as well the author of a lot of these story's often time injects a biased undertone in the articles they write. I have noticed as well the factual innacuracies in these reporting in terms of Race- Political- Historical. Overall it's ok for news but I would definitely gain information from various sources in order to receive an accurate account.
