If you haven't downloaded the Now 97.7 app already, what are you waiting for?

There is no reason why you wouldn't download the Now app. It's got everything Hudson Valley, pop music, pop news, and breaking alerts. It's really everything you need wrapped into one app. Besides the usual, there are some really awesome features about it that you may not know about. Here are my 5 favorite things about the Now 97.7 app:

1. Super Fast Stream

In fact, this is one of the fastest streams that I've seen on a radio app. Usually, you have to wait a minute or two for it to load, but in this case, it loads instantly.

2. Pick What Notifications You Want On

The app offers all kinds of notifications; news, weather, music, contests, and more. You can go into your settings and pick and choose what ones you want on. I keep contest alerts turned on because it will let me know right before the next keyword for a contest comes out, or new contests that are going on.

3. Do Not Disturb Hours

When I'm trying to sleep, the last thing I want is my phone going off. So if you don't want notifications during certain hours, just turn on do not disturb hours, problem solved!

4. The Best Local News

No one does local news coverage better than Now 97.7, so having the app means I have the latest local news when it happens. I love knowing what's going on in my community when it's going on.

5. Easy To Connect With Now

If you ever need to get in touch with Now 97.7, one of the quickest ways is to do it is through the Now app. You can even submit videos and pictures to us through the app.

So you're finally ready to get the Now app? Great! You can get it for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
