When this app was originally launched it was great, I downloaded it specifically for the weather. The map was easy to use, it had a play button that you could use to see the movement of a storm. But they "improved" it so much that they removed virtually all control from the user. I now use the WFAA app, where I have more control of the weather map.

The weather is good, but leaving any of the notifications on results in a relentless deluge of repetitive alerts. I left weather, health, and traffic alerts on and had over 10 messages from the app, none of which was important. It also sends an alert at 6 in th Monday sometimes just to inform you that the weather is going to be the same as yesterday. Thanks for waking me up when I was planning on sleeping. Edit: This app got even worse. It's complete garbage now with all the bugs.

I recently switched news apps to the NBC 5 app and I like the format and the fact that they stay current with our local news on the weekends. The reasons for the low rating is because I can't seem to watch videos in full screen mode, videos 7 out of 10 times won't play (error messages), the app crashes and even though I've turned off autoplay in settings the app ignores it and tries to autoplay anyway. If not corrected soon I guess I'll be on the hunt for another news provider app.
