What's New in Version 5.2.2

We’ve updated our app to give you more control over what stories you see with the new My News feature, plus bug fixes that will make our app run even better.

- My News: now you can customize your newsfeed with the topics you are interested in. Choose from a list of categories and create a feed of stories about those topics. You can change your settings anytime, to add and remove the topics that interest you.
- Looking for your Near Me stories? We’ve moved Saved and Near Me into a new section along with your My News feed. Now all your saved and personalized news is saved in one spot.
-Timestamp on Interactive Radar: easily track storms across our Interactive Radar with the new default timestamp.
-Many other bug fixes you won’t see, but that make the app work better and faster.
