The app has been completely redesigned for speed and usability. In addition to a number of new features, we hope you find the format allows easier reading and crisp photos and video for a more dynamic experience.

Please review the app and let us know what you think.

Customer Reviews

  • Great app

    by Jake Short

    This app is excellent for browsing news or checking the weather. The only complaint I have is that there aren't any live radar maps, so I have to have a second app exclusively for that purpose. Add some live radar and this review becomes five stars.
