    The most boring radar map I've run into so far you can't do anything with it, compared to other apps there are almost no settings. There is no timeline for the radar, which is mind boggling. Full Review

    I liked the old app allowed you to select what alerts you want to get. Since I can care less about sports it's a shame I can not turn those alerts off.. I do not need to know every time the bucs score.. Full Review

    The old app is much better. The new app has links that take you to the wrong news story and ads that are constantly showing up. Furthermore, some news links take you to their regular website and thus why do you need an app? Full Review

    Dislike! Much prefer your old app which I have gone back to using. The new one is like wtsp's twin which I don't like. Full Review

    I love the news coverage, consistently the first to report on local events, BUT I absolutely DESPISE that when you first open the app, you have to click away an ad before anything else. Really guys, why when using your competitors, you don't have to. Let us at least read 1 thing before the ads hit. I despise that so much I have almost completely quit using yours and am using your competitors instead. Full Review

    Old app much better. Sorry I deleted it. Will try to fint it again. New app so much harder to read. Another case of 'If it ain't broken, lets fix it anyway'. Full Review

    Want the old app back! This app takes too long to open, or just hangs and never opens. Uninstaling - it is wasting precious space on my phone until they fix the bugs. Full Review

    I liked the old app much better. I hate this one. They took the worst aspects of the local Fox station app and implemented them. Full Review

    Abuses notifications (insignificant news) and triple dips on obtrusive ads during emergencies. A weird third party app for some video. Boo =( Full Review

    I like the layout of the old app better. The notifications are now grouped, that's an improvement. It's still written for older versions of Android so you get warning when restricting access to location and storage. Full Review
