Other Comments: 

What an awesome way to get your local news! Just open the app, pop in your zip, pick the local station you want news from, and bang! You have videos of news, sports, weather and you also get the text versions of all stories as far as I can tell. It also allows you to set mobile alerts so you get push notifications for braking news! This is very exciting, because most news websites are very, very annoying to navigate. This is just a breeze, with only a few buttons unlabeled, one of which allows you to change text size. I've been looking for such a thing for a wile now, and it's nice to find something useful, accessible, and free! Wanna send your favorite stories to someone in an email? How about Twitter, facebook, or even an sms. This is all possible with this app.
