It’s a busy day -- like so many of your days are -- and you just can’t slow down.

You want to get the latest news, but there’s no way you have time to log into desktop or laptop computer.

KTXS has the solution for you – right at your fingertips, a way for you to make your smartphone or tablet a little smarter.

It’s as easy as opening your app store on your phone or tablet, searching for KTXS and then downloading the FREE KTXS news and weather apps.

You’ll be able to get Doppler radar images, the latest news headlines and stories, sports scores and weather forecasts … 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, wherever you are.

And in a few minutes, if you download our apps, you will be ready to go.

It’s available for whatever phone or device you have, whether it be on your iPhone, your Android, your Blackberry, your Kindle or your iPad.

One thing you’ll need to do: Allow the weather app to access your location for personalized weather information. Your private information will NOT be used or shared.

Remember, you can also allow the app to send you push alerts for breaking news updates. Allowing the push alerts won’t clog up your phone because they are individually sent out by our web staff, so your phone won’t be clogged with automatic posts. You will only receive breaking news items handpicked by our news team.

Downloading the KTXS news and weather apps will allow you keep on top of what’s happening in a quick and timely fashion.

We are working around-the-clock – while you’re awake and while you’re asleep – to provide to serve you and provide you with information in an accurate and timely manner.

“The days where the majority of our audience relied solely on information provided over the air during newscast times are gone,” KTXS News Director Jason Goodwin said. “Even the days where people got their news from just TVs and desktop Internet-connected computers are numbered. Now, more than ever, people are on the go and the demand for news, weather and pertinent information on mobile platforms is definitely there.

“People want to access information on their tablets and smartphones, even when they’re not at home or work. KTXS News is proud to be on the forefront of these changing mediums.”

The few minutes you spend downloading our apps will be time well spent, especially for such a busy person as you.
