The bottom of the screen is covered by an ad and the top is covered by the Fox 2 banner. th is is OK if you want to listen to the news and not watch it but I enjoy watching the news. What's more the app keeps stopping and when I go back into the Live Stream I have to deal with the commercials all over again when I know that the live on air program is not at commercial break. If there was a way to rate this app at zero stars that is where it would be right now. When it is fixed rating will go up.

Why does the weather show me icons in my status bar and not the temperature anymore? All settings are correct on my Droid base OS. Can't we have bothe temperature and the cloud, rain icons etc. Plus a lot of your links on the main fox 2 app are broken.

Terrible app. Not to mention, they don't report real news. Only reporting what they want you to hear. Not real news anymore....
