CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Live 5 News is excited to announce the release of a brand new app for your iPhone and Android phone.
With this new and improved app, you can get all the latest news, weather, sports and more from the Lowcountry's news leader. Live 5 News continues to bring the community the best continuous stream of information straight to your mobile phone, and best of all, it's free.
Download the new app for access to great features including alerts sent straight to my phone whenever breaking news happens, top local news stories which you can scroll through with a flick of the finger, easier to read text, and a brand new feature that makes sharing stories on Facebook, Twitter and email super easy.
There is another awesome new feature that allows you to interact with us.
"We call it the 'My Report' section," says Live 5 News New Media Director Alex Kreitman. "It lets users send us news tips, pictures and video. We get dozens of pictures and news tips every week and it's one of the best ways we can report the news with the viewers help."
Now that your phone is connected, whether you're in the office or on the way to school, the gym or out to eat, you'll have all the news at your finger tips.
An enhanced traffic section will be coming soon so you can find the best route to head home after a busy day at the office.
The new app will replace our current news app on July 31 so make sure to download the new app soon. A Blackberry version will be available in the next few days.
Don't forget to check out Live 5's free weather app, which you can find in the app store or Android Market Place by searching for Live 5 Weather.
