Ok app/ too many ads
I hated this app when it first changed but it does give you limited North Country News. The format does not flow well and I still find myself having to work at finding local news. Way too many Ads that stay the same for months. Same video ad over and over each time you watch a video. Very annoying. Pages do not get updated enough, especially on weekends. Ex: after Kentucky Derby there was news about before the race for a week or two. Come on you can do better than that. Lately the Venus Williams story has been on there for ever! Please it's not news if it's weeks old.
Big use of battery and space
This app uses a lot of battery, and space, on my iPad... unnecessarily, in my opinion. I have tried to limit, or eliminate, background access to the app but have not been able to do that to my satisfaction. I still see 5-6 hours of battery usage when my iPad has been off for most of the day. As a northern New Yorker, I use the app only for its weather section (which is good, therefore some stars). It would be nice if there was a way of emptying the app and controlling the background usage. As it is, I delete the app regularly, then have to set it up again.
It’s the only game in town here in Vermont. So it should work flawlessly (the app crashes from time to time), and the news bulletins should be relevant. Im not interested in being alerted on “feel-good” stories. I’m also not interested in being alerted on news that’s happened 3 or more days ago and has already been aired on WPTZ-TV. Please don’t use the notifications as an advertising gimmick!
Been watching WPRZ since the early 50s when everything was black & white & snowy. We could only get 2 channels at the time. We lived in the Adirondacks & TV 5 was OUR NY station. Many years have passed & sorry to say - OUR stationed has changed. TV 5 would be appropriately be called the Vermont Station these days. NY gets very little coverage now compared to even a few years ago. We need a prison escape or huge ice storm before that happens. You get where I’m going with this? My rant is over now.
Someone needs to do a better job editing/proofreading before posting stories. There’s been a number of times I have found spelling errors or misplaced words. It looks unprofessional. The app has often frozen when I’m trying to view a particular story. I’ve had to shut down the app and then open it back up. Otherwise it’s a decent app.
Old weather app was better.
All I use the app for is weather. The old one that is “going away” is better. This one is difficult to use and hard to see. Who puts white text over white clouds? The icons depicting what the weather will be hour by hour are horrible. It’s too bad, I really liked the old one and used it all the time. Maybe if they actually read the reviews and fixed some of the problems it would be tolerable.
It is nice to get an app that has the weather for the town i live in, i live in canaan, vt and we dont usually see many weather reports for our little town. So Good job, keep up the good work
Behind the times
Seems as though for the major news agency in the area it would be more up to date. Lots of old stories that never get taken down and new stories that never seem to make it on the app until it is too late. Very slow in updating the stories and miss many relevant stories
Regarding the MyNBC5 app
Enjoying this app. I Look at it at least once a day for weather update and Local news. It’s very handy to have, since I can’t get channel 5 news anymore.
Weather Radar/live news
The radar part does not always work as the screen goes gray. Sometimes the live news is black and your hear the news and advertisements at the same time.
Little Use for it
My main use for having the app is to get the school closings but that can be a very slow process. Very little local news, too many adds and doesn’t CAST only AIRPLAY which never works properly. Many news articles are posted way later then other sources.
My children live in Plattsburgh and this site keeps me up-to-date on local news give my thanks to the technicians and engineers
I’m updating the app right now recently I’ve had problems with using the interactive radar but I don’t know what’s to come.
Commercials are repetitive. Broadcast hangs up. Watching on demand is not accurate. We often get 6am broadcasts in weekends when we watch after the 6pm show. Makes no sense. It would be great if you could include more national news. We do not get the World News Tonight, after your broadcast. We learn more from the Seattle broadcasts. And please change the name of “First Warning Weather”. It sounds like First Morning Weather, which doesn’t make sense at night. And is there always a warning? I don’t think so.
I am so glad I have this app. I appreciate getting alerts and weather. I miss more Plattsburgh news.
