    The app is very easy to use. Navigation is simple and intuitive. Most importantly they update the news, weather etc constantly throughout the day.

    Instead of viewing the live news video directly in the app like other TV news apps do, this keeps bringing me to a webpage telling me to install their third-party app which I've already done, but it won't let me get past this point.

    If you want the hour-by-hour forecast for the day, you have to click through 24 pages. They turn every article they can into a slide show. Must be to register bigger traffic numbers on their app.

    Tried to watch the live feed. Requested I download a free app to watch the live. Downloaded the app. But still could not watch the live stream. Kept crashing. Too bad.
