Important info regarding the Mid America Live mobile app...

Ah, change. You gotta love it... the world of mobile devices is changing every day, causing grief for some, including us. Specifically, the company who hosts our web app, MyLocal, recently announced changes that have forced us to stop using their services. That's ok with us, it seemed to be plagued with problems anyway.

Thinking this further, we've decided to eliminate the idea of having an app altogether, at least for now.
