This app is okay but there needs to be a location that says snow emergencies and levels. When I am getting ready in the morning I sometimes don't have time to watch the weather and I can never find them on here. Also, why is it the news is never in order. There are only a few stories and usually I see yesterday's first. When I get a notification about something I go to click on it and it is only there half the time. This app needs to be more user friendly
When I stream through Airplay, the video freezes after a commercial. I have to quit the app, start again, and try to pick the right spot on the progress bar to pick up where I left off. Usually, I can only watch the first segment as the play button goes to pause almost immediately.
Often get notifications of a news story, accident, traffic concern, weather warning, etc. but when I “swipe to open”, the story is no where to be found. Opens to a page of news from the recent history, but nothing about that notification on the app.
I used to like this app. Now it quits regularly and will not allow me to share stories...it quits then too. The video portion of the screen is too huge and requires me to keep scrolling to read the text. Late loading portions of the page make sure that I have to constantly adjust the screen while I’m reading. I get the idea that video is a valuable tool for the story, but often I am not able to play videos while others are present in the space I use and reading is now more of a chore in this app.
I’ve been using and defending this app for years. Yeah, the news articles may not always be the most up to date, but I like 13abc. I’m going to have to switch to using the WTOL11 app now though. 13abc has created a separate app just for weather and the weather forecasts can no longer be accessed through the regular news app. I do not want to install two 13abc apps on my phone; too much clutter. I would rather have my news and weather in one app.
This app has too many ads and there are frequent misspellings in news stories, the weather shows the wrong time for sunrise and sunset, and mine right now (just updated) shows the wrong graphics for the forecast daily weather conditions. About a week ago I was getting only news stories from somewhere in Minnesota for several days before someone finally noticed and fixed it.. maybe it fixed itself who knows. Always crashes or just stops responding also.
Every segment before commercials cuts off about 5 seconds early, and the app freezes while on a dead screen during commercials. Need to exit and restart the app which forces a new commercial then, by the time the news broadcast is back you have missed most of it. This is a horrible way to watch a local news broadcast - I’m not sure what the developers of this were thinking! I now watch a competitor’s news station, which is available on Fubo live stream.
App closes for no reason at all frequently. Mine is on an iPad Air2 . When I try to open videos, (mostly imported videos) God only knows what video is going to open up, then I’m looking at a wheel spinning around in circles wondering when it’s going to open. Concerning news, very disappointing as they no longer put in descriptions of suspects involved in crimes that could help us at Citizen’s be safe. safe. Coincidently, recently I noticed that if the suspect is a Caucasian, channel 13 will put the description in.
Had to reopen app three times in five minutes. Jumps to iPad home screen while trying to read any article. Is there some kind of a conflict between the app and the latest iOS version? Shut downs getting worse. Time to completely rebuild this app. It does not appear that anyone is monitoring the articles for updates, multiple postings, accuracies, etc. Not an award winning app.
I’m giving the app 2 stars due to the fact that stories are posted with to many spelling errors. Where is the editor? Then today I see that you all did a story with pastor Pitts. Why? Why would you do an interview about Easter/COVID-19 with a PERVERTED MONSTER? He has multiple arrest for flashing women and children at parks, neighborhoods, etc. Why not just ask a prisoner in jail about the peak of the COVID-19 and how he feels being stuck behind infectious walls?
Come on 13. Your news are great but your ads are overtaking your reporting. Now there is no way to exit out of getting into app without some shady hunt and peck. BTW Marcos, I don’t want to order any more from you than I already do because your ad sits there forever. Enough 13. Put the ads in your content if you have to.
When I try to open it, all that happens is I get to see the full page walllpaper with your logo. I can see it looks for my location by the symbol at top of my phone screen. But then nothing changes. Completely freezes. So your new update has stopped it from working
This app is suppose to inform the public of the news, sports, etc... but it seems like no one updates the news stories on it! Old stories linger on the app way too long! If you are putting an app out there for the public to keep updated on CURRENT news stories and breaking news, PLEASE have someone keep up with adding/deleting the content!
This app. Crashes frequently or just doesn’t work. And when it does it cuts out just before they go to commercial so you miss most of what they say and it comes back late from the commercials so you miss news that way also. You would think that a station owned by Disney could afford a better app. Or at least one as good as the other TV stations in Toledo.
Great app, except for the excessive overuse of ads. I find myself closing the videos before I watch them most of the time because the preceding add is so long. When I do wait for the add to finish, the video often won’t play. Causes me to use it far less than I would. I’d say fix it, but they won’t.
Annoying pop up ads every time the app is opened. More ads at the bottom of the screen. Still more ads interspersed throughout weather and news articles. I would delete this app, but keep it only for severe weather alerts.
It’s a good app, sometimes it doesn’t loop the radar as well as I would like. The thing that will make me stop using it is the trump advertisement that keeps trying to get you to take a poll. I just wan the weather and local news it
I used to be able to just push the button and see the weather now you want me to download an extension application just to see the weather stupid if people want more give them the app but for those who just want the temperature and maybe some headlines. Dumb move.
PLEASE PLEASE fix the app so that ads stop overlapping text in your articles. I would like to read the whole article and there is always a part where the ads are over the text and that part of the story can’t be viewed.
I couldn’t stand it anymore. I deleted this app from my phone. It is terribly designed. When I click on the alerts, I get an explosion of blue and white junk, ads and nothing pointing to the alert that was sent!!! Ugh… I don’t have time to look for it.
I’d give it 0 stars if I could. The app doesn’t even open anymore. It just keeps closing itself. When a breaking story pops up and you click on it you aren’t even taken to the story. Also it’s really hard to find snow emergency levels. The whole app needs redone. I deleted it and got WTOL.
I’ve watched this news team for years but finally deleted the app. It crashes regularly. There will be lead headline or breaking news notifications, but when you go into the app, the story isn’t there. Bad app. Deleted it today.
Well, whatever you did to the news app has totally screwed up the weather link. First I deleted the app then reinstalled it and it was fine. Now, a couple hours later, I have the news but no weather. What th’?
This app runs ok on my iPhone. It will NOT run on my newer fully updated iPad. I get their opening ad, then nothing will load. I like the app and would give it a better rating if it ran. Fix it, please.
Why when I reopen this app for the firs time in forever the first thing I get is a full screen requesting I say happy birthday that includes his picture. I realize this is paid for but his birthday is not representing anything on current events or political views. Dumping this App
