Love getting breaking news on my phone from Channel 12. However, a LOT of times when I click on the alert and it shows me a news story I want to read and I click on the link it gives it takes me to an entirely different news story. Then I have to go search on the app for it and sometimes can't find the originally story it alerted me to until later. My app is updated and nothing on my phone does this except this app. Hope they can fix it- would give 5 stars except for this issue.

Great app for weather! However, The weather forecast drags on for way too long. For example, most of the time the forecast is over 5 minutes long while on other news apps, like ktre in Lufkin, the forecast is only 2 to 2 and a half minutes long. Both news apps are very accurate for their respective places, but why does 12 news forecasts have to be so long?
