For both loyal users and the many new users we now have using the Region 8 News App on your smartphones and tablets - Welcome!

To date, we have focused on alerting our app audience with breaking news alerts.  With feedback from many users who want more type of alerts, we have added to the mix additional types of alerts app users can now receive, or not.   Keep in mind, when developing an app that has a potential audience of over half a million folks, it's a challenge to keep everyone happy.  One of the best ways to keep everyone happy, is to hand you the controls.

To that end, users have the ability to select (turn on or off), several types of alerts in the settings of the Region 8 News app.  Settings are accessed by tapping the 'triple bars' menu, then the 'gear' icon for settings at the bottom of the category list.   Under settings, you can see the type of alerts available and can toggle them on/off.

See the graphic attached to this story to see how these steps work on your phone or tablet.

Again, thank you for watching KAIT, NBC Region 8, Region 8 News, and using our apps!
