I don't understand why I'm always pushed to open a browser window to view the live stream. That should be available in the app. And then when I open the browser and wait through the pop-up ad, and then the mandatory 1-2 other ads, there is no Chromecast icon, so I'm struck trying to watch it in a browser. What's the point of having a 'watch live' option in the app? Not at all an ideal streaming experience.

One of the only apps I know of that you do not have to have a cable subscription for. Every other tv company I have installed has requested that I have a cable subscription. Great app to get your news from local, national, sports and weather from. Great cast also! I have been watching wgn news since I was in grade school back in the nineties. Recently the app keeps crashing on my phone. Other than that keep up the good work!

The app is slow to start up. Handy for watching WGN TV weather when sheltering from storms where there's no TV. I think the notifications would be more useful if we could select and deselect breaking news by category: local, national, city, suburbs, sports, politics, crime, health, etc. As it is now, breaking news sends my phone too many alerts so I have deselected it.
