Download our new app to continue to receive news from Action News 5

Action News 5 has launched new NEWS apps for iPhone and Android devices. This change will require you to download our new app, which will soon replace the current one.

This is a whole new app - not an update - so you will need to delete your old Action News 5 app after downloading the new one.  It does not replace our weather app, StormTrack 5.  You should keep that on your device.

Our new NEWS app feature more news content, more video and a display that can be tailored to your preferences.

When you download the new Action News 5 app, you will instantly notice there are many more stories on the home page. Click on one of the stories and you will easily be able to share a story you like via email, Facebook, Twitter or even Google Plus. You can also save a story in your "My View" section, so you can view it later.

Our Weather section has been streamlined for easy use. Inside, you can get the forecast for the next 10 days in just one click.

In our "More" section, you'll find sports news and scores, headlines from around the state and region.

If you love video, the new Action News 5 app has a lot for you to love. Inside the section, we have our latest news and weather videos.

If you see news, send it in using our new My Report feature, which interacts directly with My 5! Just snap your photo or video and send it in under the contribute tab. You can also browse all of the photos our viewers have sent in under the Community Gallery.

Search for "WMC" in the iTunes App Store or Android Market to download our new NEWS app today.

No. You must download and install this new app. You are welcome to delete the old app at any time.
