FOX 17 – Did you get a new phone or tablet for Christmas? Be sure to get all your apps updated.

If you got an Apple or Android device, your apps should be able to be transferred over from your iTunes or Google Play account.  Now is also a good time to make sure all your app settings are where you want them.

The latest FOX 17 News app for iOS and for Android includes some new alert features.  You can choose whether or not you want to receive alerts from us for Breaking News, Weather, Traffic or even for updates on what is on FOX 17 News. You can also choose to receive all alerts and you can tailor which news gets to you first. You’ll still be able to watch live streams of our newscasts, check school closings and delays and send in photos of snow, holiday lights and breaking news.

For detailed and interactive weather, download the FOX 17 Weather app for iOS and for Android.  The interactive radar allows you to move around the country, but also zoom in on the lake effect snow bands and see what road may be safer for your drive.

And, of course, be sure you get your Facebook, Instagram and Twitter apps as well, so you can follow us on social media.

All the apps are free.
