  • Good news app: NECN

    By Biancagb
    I check NECN weather/news first thing every morning. I like being alerted when a storm is coming. I love Matt Noyes. Keep up the good work!
  • Favorite news station!!!

    I have been traveling for almost a year and NECN always keeps me up to date and a day without Matt Noyes just doesn’t seem right!!!
  • Five Star Weather App!

    By Susan from Fairhaven Mass
    Great weather app for New England States. Five Star Weather App!
  • Best weather app and news team

    By wmassbilly
    I work all over New England resurfacing pavement. This app comes works great for accurate radar in New England
  • Tried others after the Update, but came back.

    This App has the best Maps I’ve found, and any little annoyances I just put up with and carry on. I mainly use the weather app not the news component, so other user experiences may vary :-)
  • Good App

    By Babsbubble
    I really was only interested in the weather part of this App since I used the old NECN Weather App and they discontinued it. I like how your can have the weather open automatically when you launch the App. The weather portion of the App is very well done. The News section on my IPad is rather annoying, if you click on a story then return to the main news feed it takes you to the top of the news feed, not where you left off so you have to scroll down to get back to where you left off. And the Sports section is formatted differently than the News, also doesn’t seem to include sports schedules for the different teams. All in all a decent App, especially the weather part.
  • The best

    By TimNewburyport
    Most accurate weather forecast and best news broadcasting. The station is focused on the community.
  • Just fine

    By danielorr
    I find the app up to date, newsworthy, economical, concise, timely, interesting, all encompassing of the 6 state region and better than the channel 7 and channel 5 app which seems slow and clumsy and all about the shallow glitter that permeates life in general. The weather is fairly spot on and I do not follow sports at all so there you go.
  • Weather predictions.

    By DNA989
    Me and my family swear by NECN and there app. But as of about a year ago when there was mention of shutting them down entirely the service and predictions have gotten not as accurate. Let me guess less money!
  • The best ever

    By squa norris
    I use this app every morning for a quick look at the news and most of all the weather reports because I drive a truck for a living and want to know how to dress for the day. The staff is very professional and insightful. Keep on Rockin!!!
