I use this app everyday for local news. Updated to 7.12.0. I don't see much difference. HOWEVER, my *big* complaint with this app has been ongoing for years. The app itself is around 37MB but every time I open articles to read, it keeps adding to my documents and data so that in time the app is using over a GB of storage on my phone. I am not able to delete just the docs and data so I have to delete the whole app and reinstall to get it back down to manageable size. I am just reading the articles and not sharing or anything else so I don't know why the app is "saving" to docs and data. Hassle.
I really like this app and being able to get the weather forecast is huge for me. The only problem is that when I start playing the weather forecast, then turn my phone sideways to make the picture bigger, it won’t turn sideways and the video starts over with the commercial. That’s very frustrating. I keep thinking they will fix it, but maybe no one has told them. Hence, my review.
The news stories are a joke. You have to click on the picture to get more than a one sentence description. By clicking on the picture, it takes you to their website which defeats the purpose of the app. If I wanted to go to the website, I would have just went their in the first place. Weather is good as well as the deals. I will be sticking to the 9&10 news app.
This app used to rotate between landscape and portrait modes when I turned my iPad now it is stuck on portrait mode and this is very frustrating. If it wasn’t for this issue I would give this app a much higher rating it is one of my favorite. I have now started using 9&10 news solely because it is more convenient for old people who want to have their iPads in landscape mode. Please work on fixing this issue
Nice-looking app, but I made the mistake of enabling notifications and then being annoyed by a regular series of "Breaking News" alerts that were nothing like breaking news. So I turned off notifications, and they kept coming. So I force-quit the app, and they kept coming. Hoping that deleting the app altogether does the trick.
I have used the application on my iPad now for a few months to get the local weather and news. What I like: local weather good overview nice layout fairly accurate What lowers my rating: Will not switch to landscape mode. This is important for iPad users with horizontal cases. When clicking on "get Joe Charlovix detailed forecast", it takes you to the web. The web link does not have any details on it, simply links to some old weather news. And the web is flash based so you cannot access any of the content anyway. If it had these things fixed, I would raise it to a 4.5.
I like getting news from the area, but unfortunately the same news stories stay online for days at a time. Each day I’m likely to find only one or two new items per day, and almost never on weekends. Often a waste of my time.
If you turn off notifications this is a useful app for local news highlights. However, the writing is very bad. It's replete with basic spelling and grammar errors, poorly structured and sometimes confusing sentences. Makes you question the journalistic accuracy.
Hearing the same commercials repeat over and over is beyond annoying. It’s home screen goes to portrait instead of landscape view. You can’t pause or rewind which is important. Please work on this app.
This app simply does not work. Each time, it says "Failed to load station data. Try again later". My wife downloaded the app and she gets the same message. This has not worked once since we downloaded it. Waste of time.
Tried to login to my acct to buy a half off eats at boons and it would not login , and when it finally worked I'm hitting the buy button and it will not buy the deal , so I am screwed out of the deal because this app did not work
I miss the original app. This new update never seems to display things right. It's a great concept if it worked properly. This is the app I always went to for my local news now it always errors out or resets my preferences.
This app should be called "up north Oregon, Washington, East Coast" every time you open this app, you get local news from one of those three areas, never any local northern Michigan news on the homepage, disrespectful to the locals in northern Michigan
Poorly developed bring back the old version. The weather section does not list the correct cities for zip codes. Not very user friendly. Looks as if the developers wanted it to be shiny and not functional.
This station is owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group. Not local control, rather a national large company that wants to control what you see and hear. I'm deleting this app and participating and supporting local companies!
All this app does is spam the App Store. You try to read an article and you are redirected to the App Store. You go back to the article and you are redirected to another app in the App Store. Zero Stars.
Upnorthlive changed their entire application. There are no more comments, you often click on the ads that are placed in between articles, which will reroute you to the we browser. Every time you accidentally hit that advertisement, they make money. Most stories don't have pictures, and no links to any YouTube videos or sources. Used to be a 5star app, if I could give it 0 I would.
I like the application and use it frequently when I spent time at my cottage outside of Clare. In the settings portion of the application I would like to be able to login different ZIP Codes so that I could automatically go to that location and check the weather. For instance Lake George at 48633 Lake at 48632
