Here are answers to some Frequently Asked Questions:


1) What happens to the old "KPLC 7NewsNow" app?
That app is going away at the end of July. You need to download and install the new free app to continue to receive breaking news notifications from 7News.

2) Will the new app automatically replace the old app?
No. You must download and install the new app. You are welcome to delete the old app at any time after downloading the new app.

3) Why do the stories not refresh when I reopen the app?
The app does not automatically refresh when you reopen it. To refresh the story listings on the app, pull the screen down (like you do with the Facebook app) until the screen begins to refresh. You can also manually close the app and relaunch it.

4) Is there an iPad app?
No, not yet. We are working on that and hope to have something available later this year.

5) What about an app for Blackberry?
We are working on that and hope to have something ready in the near future.

6) What about an app for Windows mobile devices?
At this time, we do not have plans to make an app for Windows mobile devices. We encourage anyone who does not have an iPhone, Android device, or Blackberry to use our mobile website, http://m.kplctv.com/.
