    Finally. Now if they'd only fix the weather updating bug.

    "stream videos from your favorite shows"

    On a news app? Do they mean news shows?

    Can you post a regular link not using tinyurl? Our firewall at works blocks tinyurl and we get this on our screen:

    I searched the Market and get several Fox News apps and widgets, so I'd like to know which one you're talking about.

    It's by the actual Fox News, not any other company. I was wondering when they were going to release this as well, as the Fox Business app was released recently. It's a pretty sweet app!

    Wow! For just being released, this app is amazing. The video is really clear and loads quickly too.

    I wish ESPN's Scorecenter operated this well.

    Well, hopefully an update will come soon.

    - Getting force close errors a lot on Evo.
    - Can't change weather location.
    - If you don't get alerts off fast, and you get one, can't click to clear. Have to hit clear which clears all app notifications.

    Has awesome potential. Very slick interface. Just some minor bugs.

    The weather location changed for me after I entered my zip code, but it took awhile for it to happen.

    The only minor flaw for me is that it doesn't update when I reopen the app. I have hit the refresh button.

    As advanced as this app is, it very smooth with no lag. Whoever developed it definitely knows what they're doing.

    They featured it on Greta for a few seconds. From the comments on foxnews.com:
    "I am going to get a droid just for that app!"
    Lots of other happy comments about this app but I noticed lots of grumbling from iphone users about their version. muahaha

    I also had the same bug problems and ended up installing the unofficial application.

    I'm no Fox fan, but the app is nice.
    I only downloaded it in hopes of spurring more development for Android!

    A few pros: Display is very nice and crisp.
    Sound is great.
    Application layout is nice.

    A few cons: Streaming pauses a lot.
    It's Fox.

    I'll give a try on 4g to see if the streaming works any better.



    Edit:
    4g removes the streaming issue.
