    Loads very slowly. At times it will not load at all. Very frustrating. Content is good & easier to browse than full site.

    Its great to see the local News station has a free app out there for people to use. I cant always catch the news on T.V. so having this app is very practical and very useful. Thanks News 8!!!

    Was great but the last update was a big fail. Can't even get it to open now - Galaxy S3

    School closings section does not display. Not nearly as intuitive as prior version. Pop up ads everywhere. Very disappointed.
