The app itself is really nice but something that turns me off about the app is the live news. It only shows during the selected times & most of the time, it doesn't even show then. So that's a turn off & thts why the low rating. The live news should always be showing, even if it isn't live. The news from the previous day could be shown. So this app is a negative for me. Please make the app better...

Wish it gave me the shows! + the day news & weather. Had to remove it for a week because repeated itself for 3 days straight. Cargiver, don't have a chance to see or hear at broadcast time.

What's new

If you’re holding your device in landscape when entering an article screen, the video will no longer automatically jump into full-screen mode. If you’re holding your phone or tablet in portrait orientation when you’re on an article, then you can still quickly launch video full-screen mode by rotating it to landscape. We also fixed some minor bugs.
