    by PattyPDS

    Timely, informative news.

  • Accurate weather radar, dislike ads!

    by Jenn74955

    New ad feature when you exit from weather radar is irritating you MUST watch it & it affects data usage ! Considering deleting it if they don't change it. I've found the weather radar more accurate than NOAA weather radar several times!

  • Locally informative

    by ManagerLady

    Like the app even tho I receive alerts about some subjects that are not pertinent to me, that will happen w/most sites. Overall I like it. I had downloaded another news site & I never got ANY alerts, so that 1 got the ax.

    Good app

    by Beezy42069

    I'm satisfied with this app but it would be better if they showed more nationwide coverage as well as local late breaking news! Overall though, I love this app & use it everyday!!! :-)

    by MAW210

    Very good local news app.

  • Not Family Friendly - Adult Ads

    by Bandog_6

    I was very disappointed to find adult websites popping up on the app. I guess I expected local news to be a little more family friendly :(

  • Bad info

    by Natesose1

    I'm not sure who puts the stories out there for this news app but there are incorrect statements/facts on a regular basis. Media irresponsibility.

  • Download if you like ads

    by Saltyair addict

    Every time you click something you have to watch a commercial. Often times their "breaking news" never updates with more information. News stories have little detail in them. Great for watching advertising but lacks in the news department. The breaking news alerts are a good feature but falls flat from there.

  • I like it but

    by Billiam64

    Crashes on start up a lot!!!!

  • Worthless

    by Cokedude

    Need your Breaking News to be really news most of it is really not important to be Breaking News. fix Slideshow pics to read the whole story under pic. Update. I just Deleted your sorry app.

  • Frivolous news alerts

    by G Taylor

    Too many news alerts. It's getting to the point where I would not be surprised to soon see, "dog chases bone"!

  • It's a great app

    by K2wise


  • Good.....

    by I'll Ang

    But it doesn't show the percent of rain on the hourly section.

  • News

    by Nalyr

    Rely on my news app all the time.

  • Landscape view

    by slabstick

    I have asked before but I guess they don't listen. I look at the news on my ipad a lot but there is no landscape view. Great for the phone app but I'm sure there are many folks who would like to view without having to turn their iPads up into portrait mode. Channel 5 has it.

    Love it

  • Good App

    by jpconno

    Good app. I'd like to see the option to watch live news within the app like some other local news apps. Overall though, it does what it should.

  • Love this app

    by duckerck

    Great and on top of things

  • Awful

    by reneoy

    This app is terrible. The news reports often contain grammatical errors and headlines with no substance in the body. Also, it appears that journalists are recycling old entries to post new ones (with the same subject) because I have seen new news stories posted on the app with comments dating months, sometimes a year back. The interface with Disqus is completely useless. It's a mobile app, yet it will not allow you to add comments because Disqus never works with mobile.

  • Great app

    by Therockh

  • It ok

    by Warlock41

    This app is just ok. Funny how not much news happens on the weekend, or so it seems since only 1 or 2 news items are posted.

  • Great information fast

    by heather collins

    I love this app...always being able to know what's going on when it's happening. I can't always be home and so this app alerts me when there are traffic delays, accidents and other new updates!! Thank you!

  • Works well.

    by GrillmasterJ

    Not crazy about the layout or the ads everywhere that are hard to avoid from accidentally touching but do like the local news updates and weather warnings.

  • Great for on the go!

    by Tom Deering

    I travel a lot for work and always checking this app. I'm set up for alerts as well! Fantastic app!!

  • Best

    by Ar3ydud3

    I can't always be near or on a tv so I use all the 40/29 apps and stay up to speed with the news and weather as long as the apps keep working I will use only 40/29

  • Lori

    by Dman's Lady

    It would really be great if while u r reporting a traffic accident, you'd provide a map of where it is.
