Get a new smartphone or tablet this holiday season? Be sure to download the latest upgraded version of our app to stay in the loop.

Downloading the free WKBW app for your Apple or Android device means you’ll be the first to know when news or severe weather happens in the area.

The upgraded WKBW app uses background refresh, meaning the latest news will be pre-loaded every time you open the app. The clean new interface features edge-to-edge images, new animations and single-touch video play on articles.

If you’re in a hurry to see the latest news and weather information, the app features links to specific stories directly inside push notifications. This way, our editors can now link a push notification directly to a story for quick access from the notification bar — or even your phone’s lock screen.

Whether you just got a new device recently or simply haven’t yet downloaded the app onto your existing one, check it out to stay connected — it’s free.
