Don't like this latest "downgrade" at all. More difficult to access data. (Small print, lots of empty space, clunky scrolling), can't get rid of the map to see future weather data. Must wait for future radar to scroll before getting to past to present which moves too fast to see radar rate and time. There's more. How this can be called an upgrade is beyond me.

I don't understand what the heck is wrong with this app. I have it because it really does seem to be the best local/regional WEATHER app, and I specifically am not interested in the news side of it (although I'm a loyal NECN TV watcher, since its inception). BUT NOTIFICATIONS!!!!! I have severe weather notifications tiurned on, it's the point of the app for me. But I have ALL News notifications OFF, including specifically SPORTS... as someone who almost always is watching TV (including sports) time shifted I DO NOT WANT THESE. So why EVERY DAMNED WEEK does my phone beep me the latest Patriots game result while I'M general either still in the middle of watching it or not even home to START yet. Again, my SPORTS NOTIFICATIONS SETTING IS TURNED *OFF*!!! Few things in the world irritate me more than spoilers, and if it's sports, I won't even bother watching the rest of the game if I know how it ends. RESPECT MY SETTINGS!!!!

I had to uninstall this app, I went through all the motions to disable every single notification except the weather notification bar and for some reason I still see Robert Kraft, sports nonsense, and political garbage. Fix your notifications and make that weather bar useful again. I've been a loyal user for years, but I refuse to use an app that's going to ping me all day long with things I've already turned off.
