    Good app I would give 5 stars if the comments section was on this app like the website has.

  • Provides newly update news

    by Kahrnel

  • Love the app

    by Jtotheilla

    It's great! Crashes rarely but nice weather maps, smart shopper card and up to date news. Could be a little faster though. Overall my go to news app in Valley.

  • Too many notifications


    New review with advertised commercial update 1/29/14: Still MANY unwanted notifications. I wish that within each category they have no created, that also, in the settings, we can turn off notifications for categories that are unwanted. In a state that doesn't have much of a weather change, for example, it would be nice to turn off weather for every day when there is no change but turn it on when I feel I want it.... So many notifications every single day. It's very disturbing. I love to support local news and this is a great news station, just can't say the same for the app. Original review 10/11/13: The app is full of great information and does a fantastic job in my opinion. What I would like to see personally is the ability to turn off certain types of notifications within the app. For example... I love notifications about bad or extreme weather, news updates, and even sports... but I personally do not want the daily temperature sent as a notification. However at this point in the app I have to receive daily temp notifications even though I don't want them. Many per day is a lot. I would like to see some customization here.

  • Push Notifications can't be turned off!

    by BS130129

    Loved the app but until they can turn off unwanted push notifications a 1 star and have removed the app!! Numerous emails to the tech department and can't fix. So sad.

  • Too many Adds

    by TATUM-TOT

    There are too many adds in the app. They keep piping up ever 5 seconds when you are trying to read an article.

  • Don't bother!

    by One Witchy Woman

    This app lets you read one story sometimes two or three. Then freezes. You have to close it then open it again just to read another article. I have iPhone 5 with the latest iOS and still can't read more than one article. It's very annoying!

  • Advertisements for Tobacco Products

    by zaxoo

    I deleted this once I started seeing advertisements for tobacco products on the bottom of the screen. I'm not ok with that. Especially since the age rating for this app is age 4 and up.

  • No Jodi stream?

    by JPyre

    What's up?

  • Crashes!

    by Butterflies2

    Then crashes again!!

  • Not a good app

    by Timothy Gaylor

    I just moved here and I'm looking for a good news app and refuse to support FOX in anyway, so I downloaded this one and not informative at all. It doesn't even give you a weekly weather forecast.
