FOX Carolina has launched a new version of its mobile application with more features than ever before.

The app, which is available for iOS, Android, Blackberry and Kindle devices, launched on Monday, with an emphasis on features that users have frequently requested, including an interactive radar.

"That's one of the biggest features our users have asked for," said FOX Carolina Digital Content Manager Aaron Barker. "I can't tell you how many times someone has asked me when they will be able to zoom in on the radar."

In addition to the interactive radar, the improved app also includes a location-based current conditions and forecasts.

"One of the new features I'm most excited about is the Futurecast," Barker said. "Now, users can not only view the weather that's happening right now, but also what will happen a few hours from now."

The new app also features more sharing options, including Twitter, Facebook, email and text messages.

Of course, the new app doesn't take away from any of the great features users have come to expect - instant breaking news and weather alerts, for push-enabled devices, up-to-the minute headlines, weather blog posts and traffic cameras.

Barker said users with the old app will see a message or link that prompts them to download the new app.

"Once the new app is downloaded, just delete the old app, and you're ready to go," Barker said.

To download the new FOX Carolina app, just search for "FOX Carolina" in the app store for your device.
