Live 5 News is excited to announce the release of a brand new app for your Android phone, iPhone and Blackberry! Our new app features more news content, more video and a display that you can tailor to your own preference.
When you download the Live 5 News app, you'll immediately notice that there are more top stories on the home page. When you click on a story, you can easily share it via email, twitter and facebook. You can also save those stories in your "MyView" section to view them later.
If you see news happening, you can now easily send it in using our new "My Report" feature. It interacts directly with My5! Just snap your photo or video and send it in using the "contribute" tab. You can also browse all of the photos our viewers have sent in under the Community Gallery.
In our "More" section, you'll find sports news and scores, headlines from around the state, traffic and more.
There's also plenty of video to watch in our "video" section. Catch the most recent weather forecast and watch all of the latest top news stories.
Here are answers to some Frequently Asked Questions:
1) Why do the stories not refresh when I reopen the app?
The app does not automatically refresh when you reopen it. To refresh the story listings on the app, pull the screen down (like you do with the Facebook app) until the screen begins to refresh. You can also manually close the app and relaunch it. If you have an iPhone, shake the phone each time you open the app to ensure that it has been refreshed.
2) Is there an iPad app?
Yes! Click here for more info.
3) What about an app for Windows mobile devices?
At this time, we do not have plans to create an app for Windows, but our mobile website m.live5news.com will soon be automatically updated.
