Reviews From google play store

I really like the app but eversince the recent update, I am not able to Chromecast on both my Android and Apple devices. I also cannot rewind or fast forward on live streams anymore. I rely on both these features because of my vision and in case I missed a segent or misheard what the anchors are saying. Please bring back and I will rate higher. Thanks!

no casting support for smart tv, and they don't have to know where I am I'll figure it out what location I would like to see... but REALLY? No cast going to be uninstalling this space waste. actually they owe me stars. Blah ruined it.

If you are desperate to use this with Chromecast, just open Google Home app on your phone, then tap the profile icon in the lower right, scroll down to Mirror Device, then cast your phone to Chromecast. Now anything on your phone, including sound, will go to your TV. Turn on screen rotation in your phone to fill the screen. You're welcome.

Does exactly as the description says... provides live news without requiring an account, no login to cable,etc... you can choose favorite stations, or watch from around the country. Hulu doesnt provide me with local news on a consistent basis (no help from their customer service) so i am glad i found this app 🙂

I loved this app. I went to totally streaming and dropped cable. I used this to watch my morning news while getting ready for work. Unfortunately you took away the cast feature and that makes this useless to me. Uninstalling now

Was a great app until update. Big isssue is what everyone else is saying: can no longer cast from app. Video quality is not what it use to be, either. Live cast last an hour and have to restart live stream for next hour. Will adjust rating when castings comes back. Shouldn't sacrafice functionality for new look and layout. Don't guess what users want and value, ask instead! Cover all your customer personas. Its the Agile way!

Rating changed from 3 to 4 (should be 4.5). The new layout and interface is much more friendly and easier to use. The only thing I wish you could add is a notification push if a station is on out-of-schedule on air with breaking news in their area

I have used this app for over a year now and loved it but after the last update they removed cast support So I have no use for it now as I always cast the news to my Smart TV or Google Home Hub. Please bring back cast support and I'll give it 5 stars again.

used to be good! please bring back default selection and 30second skip ahead. what a pain, only being able to skip ahead 10 seconds at a time! oh yea , no more casting. who's briliant idea was that?

I'll be deleting the app soon unless the Cast feature is reinstated. giving you a minus 5 stars now in words, will make it a 1 star since The Play Store doesn't give that option. fix this or I'm gone.

nice app but unfortunately the severe weather videos were like 2 to 3 hours behind. That's kind of useless it's not live.

Checked it out tonight. Looks like a nice improvement over the old app. More user friendly. 'll be enjoying the improvements! Thanks, Mark M. ( Calif.)

The previous app worked far better with my tablet. Video quality is now very low, and I miss being able to rewind and fast forward 'live' broadcasts. Also, the map was easier to use rather than 'stations by state' selection. I now must close your app just to change broadcast channels. The new app LOOKS NICE, but that's about it. Sorry, but the previous app was a 4plus. It's now nearly unuseable. I'm now forced to look at other options/apps. Sorry, it looks like a giant leap backwards.

The new update is bad. No more tv cast, only 480p res. It's no star for me, going to uninstall it.

Works well, and good selection of channels. Video streaming is good also. UPDATE.....As of 3/2019, the latest update won't let me run the app on my Android box! What happened? PLEASE FIX 😞

This update is not good can't move around thru channels no HD with cast its way to Sorry guys

You took away the cast button? That was the whole reason I used this app. Time to find a new app.

This used to be a five star app. I used it a lot and always used it to cast to my TV. Guess which option was removed in the last update? You can no longer cast :(

This was my go-to 4 News but recently the app is suffering. The server is obviously overburdened as it stalls to the point of being useless.

new update sucks. removed casting and no settings for video quality? lame
