Great station. Difficult app The WHDH TV app is so far superior to the WCVB TV one it isn't even close. Much, much easier to get to their live content than is the case with the Channel 5 one. Thus WCVB should go with the WHDH app developer instead. Also allow us to put in on sd card like the HDH app does. May bounce this app soon!

Clunky This is the most sluggish app on my phone. When I get a push notification it takes for ever to open the story. Cut down on the flashy graphics and just give me the news!!!

News is good...too many slideshows App provides expected info nicely, however, many interest articles are in slideshow format which has an annoying interface. The next slide button can tend to move on you leading to opening links accidentally. Likely intended behavior for advertisements but it is annoying. And who really wants to go through the top 100 public school rankings 1 by 1?
