The upgrade is available for all iOS 8 and above users of Apple devices and Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) on phones or 10-inch tablets. An upgrade for Kindle and 7-inch android tablets will be coming shortly.

As part of the upgrade we are switching all our platforms over to Facebook commenting. In order to continue commenting on our apps you must upgrade to the newly redesigned app.

Personalized alerts

Get a more personalized alert experience by choosing the types of alerts you want to receive, such as breaking news, sports, business, opinion, weather and traffic. Alerts will also open specific stories rather than sending you to the Top Stories page.

Customizable sections

Our redesigned navigation menu lets you customize which sections you want to see and the order you see them in, and you can even add custom news sections for news and information in any community on Long Island. You can also swipe left and right to access all of your sections instead of opening them all from the menu.

Enhanced traffic section

You can save your favorite routes and see live traffic cameras, gas stations and any traffic jams along the way. You can also report traffic accidents or construction you see to share with other drivers.

Enhanced weather page

Our new weather map can be easily customized to show you a variety of weather conditions on Long Island and around the world. It also has a future cast that shows you what the next six hours look like and lets you easily track rain, snow and storms. You can save up to 10 locations for quick reference.
