It worked well for a month. Last update did something that now i can't read or watch any of the videos because it crashes constantly. Its useless to me if I can read the notification but cant follow the news on the app. Uninstalling and finding a different one

Too many ads. The ads are distracting. The ads are for items I do not want and would never buy. News Broadcasting in Rochester is not good. This is acceptable at best. The app itself is actually a bigger inconvenience to use than the website so why bother? Uninstalling again.

I enjoy the app but it doesn't actually play the live news like advertised. you have to hit each individual video rather then it just play the whole news in one video but otherwise I like the app and the people who deliver us the local news.
