Best news app

Buddy cat & Smokey

We spend our winters in Florida and the channel 7 news app goes right with us. I can know what's going on at home, both with the weather and news - it is the best news app around and I always know what's happening at home! I do wish the videos aren’t at the beginning as there’s times I just want to read the article.



Thank you guys for finally adding a location option for While Using! I had it disabled because it drained my battery because it was always or never. It's not really necessary to use it unless the app is open, so thanks for realizing that!

Great app, could use a tad more optimization


This app is very convenient for checking school closings, it even sends a push notification for districts you select! However, the radar doesn’t seem to be optimized for iPhone X, unlike the rest of the app. Other than that, works great!
