Good for news updates.....I've watched WCVB since I was little and stuck with it because they are the best...Chet & Nat, Bob Copeland, Susan Warnick
Good app. Showing the news and Chronicle. They don't show any sports film or interviews at all. The app also stops streaming after 15 minutes so has to be restarted. Needs to be fixed. Otherwise good
I do like this app. One of my favorite news stations. I do wish it had a traffic feature that was real time. Also the picture navigating can get slow and frustrating. But overall the alerts and the news stories are well done !!!!
Great app from a great Boston station! Easy to use - I especially like the option of a weather forecast that's written out in paragraph form. Very helpful feature! Thank you, WCVB : )
Easy to use
Great to get updates on the headlines not to mention the weather.
Very good app up to date
Love this app, so easy to use!
Did the update and it works fine. I'm very happy with this app.
From local news to especially weather updates, this is a great app to have for Bostonians!
Keeps me informed with the news alerts which I very much like. Great Boston news app to have, esp. when working in the city.
Great app, in an instant I know what's happening,
The app has a very easy and intuitive interface for finding weather info, school delays, etc...and the fairly up to date video forecasts (often updated between newscasts)...make this app worthy of a prominent location. The general news is a little too reliant on AP wire and the police/crime beat.
The app is by far the best news app I've downloaded. It's easy to read, the stories are good and what I think are relevant and it's very easy to navigate. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because the use of the alert feature has become frivolous and should be reserved for true alerts not girl gets tongue stuck to pole or Aaron Hernandez went to court. I mean real news like earthquake, major pile up, amber alert, etc.
This is the best news ap ever
Excellent app very quick and informative
Very happy with this app
I love this app, it keeps me up to date on the important things going on in our area.
Love the news and weather alerts!
Good app but which there was an iPad version
Stop your alerts program for news that does not matter. I did not approve that on my original download.
After update frequent crashing!... Useless now!
Do not like update. Very slow to load and not refreshing each time. Sad to see ads a part of the headlines.
Won't open since I updated.
It's not perticularly good for weather, traffic, or news. Hard to navigate. I am deleting this app.
This app is one of the best in Boston TV land. Love it
Good app. Best weather with an easy link to school closings.
The app is a reflection of their great news service. It is very quick with the IPhone 5s.
Love the design and all the great features it offers. Job well done, would recommend to everyone!
I wanted a news app. This does the job well. I have had no issues with the app functioning so fat.
Love it keep me inform of all the news!!! Thanks
It would be great if it didn't lock up loading on top stories constantly. IPhone 5
Mostly a great app, which is a big improvement over older versions which overloaded and crashed the iPhone. The new version of the interactive weather radar operates seamlessly and is much superior to the older version when it comes to enlarging or shrinking the selected area. One could wish for more international stories to be included. The ads are aggravating, too big, and because if their size often cause the app to crash. Tell your sponsors to limit the size of ad graphics to stop this problem. Otherwise it is a very solid app.
Great way to stay up to date when you are on the go or out of town. Easy to use.
Has some decent news updates, but a lot of less-than-newsworthy items. News stories often show up more than once in the same listing.
Great app that is easy to use. Only issue I have had recently is with the connection to disquss for making comments.
I love this app! My friends and I love to be alerted to any breaking news that's happening! I'm the only one with this App & I am ALWAYS informed before anybody else! Whether it's local, national, or international news I'm the first to know! Great for school closings & weather advisories as well!
nothing to brah abt. sometimes it is old news. but weather is gd. weather and hour by hour storm track is great
I love that the app sends alerts for breaking news.
Channel 5 is by far the best app for local Boston news coverage! It's always the stuff you want to see in an App!
It's a great way to catch up on the news quickly
Horribly designed app. At times there could be 3 ad banner bars on the screen at once. Talk about terrible use of space.
This is a solid app. It would only be better if there were a way to select which updates are pushed to my phone as notifications.
It's on point and accurate
I love this app keeps me updated on the news and especially the weather.
Keeps me up to date on all the current news, it's my go to app for any news story!
Love the weather info
Now it functions better than it was with prior update. Wish it would provide more news stories as it is pretty limited. Seems repetitive. Crashes a lot recently after iOS7 updates
My days can get so crazy, that sometimes I would feel so completely out of touch. Not any more!
Tried to open app, took 3 attempts before success - kept trying to open, but it closed/crashed 2 times in a row.
Installed update now unable to open app.
I get frustrated with it. If I start in an easier section then it seems ok. Moving from one "department" to another is annoying.
