    This is another junk news/weather app. It just provides the very basic weather info. The same local news I can get either online or from better apps.

    Trying to use this app to get critical hurricane updates, and all it does is redirect me to a website that let's me read for a short while then redirects again to an ad that I have to close the app to get rid of. Shame on you.

    VASTLY improved usability. Tremendous scope; plenty of detail; good readability.
