Apparently the old app is just gone and replaced with a new one, this one. A little odd.
Syracuse, NY news access 24/7!
After playing with this app on both my iPhone and my Kindle Fire, I truly love how this app runs.
It`s a very good and smooth running app with lots of nifty features. Mainly news from the Central NY area, but the info is consistently updated so you`re never behind. Plus the app organizes the stories in categories that are on the bottom of the screen. Just click on what you want (I.e. sports, local stories, videos, your stories, on the lookout, the real deal, weather, lotto numbers, horoscopes, etc.) and it`ll give you the most recent and available stories!
The live Doppler radar on the iPhone is a great tool to use to check weather patterns right there. And you can even get live footage of the radar!
The stories with videos actually work without any glitches or issues (only con here is sometimes it`ll have a small local CNY ad, usually not longer than 30 seconds). You can even get live footage from certain broadcasts in the day! The catch is some of the stories that say video but only has the channel 9 logo instead of a story photo might not have an immediate video to watch.
Other great features I found enjoyable: you can change the font size (make the letters larger or smaller) of the stories you`re reading for easy reading; and you can share stories you like right to your Facebook or other social media.
Cons: besides the video one I mentioned earlier, there is a spot to look at gas prices in your local area, BUT that`s really just another ad for another app to work in conjunction to that. Also the small spot for the ads that are just above the category lists is not gonna go away, but they easily ignored, usually a Netflix ad.
Overall this is a great app for the locals of the CNY area, and I`d recommend it for anybody who likes to keep up with local news from Channel 9. The design is simple and easy to navigate through and is updated consistently. Channel 9 did a pretty good job working on this app!
