At the present time, it's horrible! I've got flash flood warnings for a week ago Tuesday! The sound double plays, and video keeps looping commercials! I enjoyed having a local weather/traffic app. I rely on it everyday. But this update is a hot mess! I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Still messed up! Y'all need to fix this ASAP!

More accurate temps than my default phone weather app. Although it isnt clear to me when I'm seeing the true temps vs the heat index temps in the forecast. The main menu carousel speed feels better with this update, but as mentioned by others is just a clunky outdated way to navigate. Forecast vids are WAY too quiet. I could do without the ads before those, but at least they start muted. Would love to see the Flourish infographics on here that are on the website.

I love KXAN and their app is the only local station that I have on my phone...and have had for years...but it's been glitchy since I've started using it. Also, my biggest complaint are the ad videos...I get you have to do some sort of ads but it's annoying when there's bad weather and the 30 second ad video comes on...and then sometimes it also glitches. I usually tune-in on TV but occasionally sometimes the app is more convenient to get to than TV
