Could use a better collection

Good potential. But the newscast is only about the weather in my area, nothing from what I'm following. It could be nice also with a Chromecast support.

Had potential This application looked promising at first, but then my newscast started being flooded with feeds that I was not following including local news from Hawaii which it just so happens is nowhere near where I live. So, I emailed the company and they quickly fixed the localization problem which was nice, but they had the audacity to inform me that receiving news from feeds I was not following was by design claiming that they were "afraid of what could happen if everyone only watched Fox News or Democracy Now". They called it "serendipitous content". I call it bulls#!t. I neither want their serendipitous content or their app. If I could give a lower rating I would.
