Good App, sometimes
When the advertisement loads at the beginning the App crashes. Otherwise a very good app. I do not mind advertisements at start, but they never load properly, and I am left with a dark screen with no way to get out of the app. I like the app a lot, but not enough to waste my time every time I try to use it. I am done playing the fool. I wonder if your advertisers know that they are wasting their money, they are also alienating their potential customers. Thanks for your efforts, but for me just a waste of my time

Enjoying WMAZ
I learned about WMAZ from my husband of 40 years. I am from Marietta, GA, so when we got married and I moved down here to my husband’s area, Macon, I started watching the News and Shows on Channel 13. My husband and I have loved all the people there because of the way you all invite us in to your home and make it ours. My husband said to say that he loves Ben’s wit when it comes to the Weather and his other endeavors. AND how “cuts up” with Lori, Frank, Marvin and the rest of the cast. Thank you for presenting Macon in such a great Light. We love you, WMAZ, channel 13. Harold & Winona Sapp

Love This News Station.... I live in Jasper County close to Newton and in the Atlanta NEWS viewing area..... But will never watch Atlanta NEWS again because for some reason seems as if they are trying to stir up RACISM..... and cause conflict just so they can have news to report about..... and the weather folks for some reason don’t have what it takes to get more men involved with watching 😜😂..... even though I’m just right on the line of viewing area now that streaming is available..... never watch No other news .....

I use to hate watching the news growing up & still did a few years ago because it’s always bad news. Yet watching 13WMAZ isn’t news to me. It’s my “keep me grounded” tv family because that’s exactly what they do. Sure it, like others, show the negativity of this world BUT it shows so much more about the community I’ve grown up in, things families can engage in & they are ALL humorous. Always leaving their viewers on a easy or even a happy note. An let’s admit it..w/ as much sad & bad there is out there..we could all use a little happiness.

Love this station… But
The app needs to be updated more regularly otherwise I love this station. It is the same stories for days sometimes with 1 new story here and there. Please think about having a person update the website hourly. There is enough things happening in Macon and surrounding area’s that I do not see lack of news stories to be told. Thank you and have a great day 😊

Used to be better
The new update to the app is less user friendly and I often miss updates on the news. I can no longer share stories with others. If I click on the share option, it shares something completely different. I really despise the new app. I miss the old one. It was straightforward and easy to navigate and share with others. I get notifications from the app now for stories, but when I try to locate them, they are nonexistent on the app. If I click the notification itself, it will sometimes take me to the story, but trying to find it on the app without clicking the notification, I am often not able to locate the story. It’s very frustrating.

Not so great anymore. In the past I haven't had any problems with this app. But lately more often than not I'm unable to get the videos to open and play. I don't have this problem with the other stations apps. I use this a lot when I travel to stay up to date on the local news. There are too many commercial adds before the story line. Please allow us to skip the adds all together, and don't continue to post old stories. We want update news. Please fix this problem.

One thing I can say about 13WMAZ... They are honest. They get the facts first. They don't lie on people to get people to view them. They are more like family than anything. I'm thankful to have such caring people that help keep us informed of not just bad weather but anything that may be harmful to us. My hats off to each of you and your family members. God bless you all and keep each of you safe!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Thank You!!
We watch channel 13 because we know we are always going to get current and factual information. Weather with Ben Jones is the best. We stay up late during weather problem nights because Ben makes us feel informed. The interaction between Frank and Lori keeps our attention and is always very professional. Thank you for all that you ALL do straight from the heart. Debbie and Fred Howe

Worst app
When I open breaking news video an ad pops up then it crashes or the video won’t open. It’s the same thing over and over and over. During the last storms that came through our area, I tried to keep up during tornado warnings and I could NOT get it to work without ad then crash. It’s useless.

Reliable and informative!
I have lived in this area for 11 years now and I have never been disappointed in the information that the Channel 13 WMAZ news team has shared with my family and they have kept us safe with the warnings of upcoming severe weather and given us time to prepare and believe me, we have come so very close to disaster many times 😱😱. Thank you all at WMAZ Channel 13 News

Too many ads
This app is useful, but the number of ads has increased to an annoying level. If you want to watch video, you have to watch a video ad even if you just watched the same ad seconds earlier. There are many “read only” ads plastered everywhere too. When you get a notification something is happening live, you have to watch a video before you can see the live feed. Beginning to not be worth it.

Annoying Ad
I have the same issue as a lot of other people, when I first go to the app it brings up an ad that says “Swipe Up” only you can’t swipe up. There’s no way to close out the ad and the app is frozen. I force close and try to re-open only to have the same issue again. I went through this about 6 times the other day and finally gave up. With that being said, when I can actually get into the app I love it. It’s how I keep up with news and events around middle GA. I just wish it worked properly.

My 13WMAZ app used to be my go-to app every morning. I really do not like the new app, though. It is super glitchy. Quite often when I click on an article, I get kicked out of the app altogether or at least back to the home page. Other times the page “freezes” and will not scroll. Very annoying! Please fix my app!!

The Best
I have loved watching 13WMAZ for the last 28 yesrs! I have continued to watch you even when I moved to North Ga 3 years ago and now living in South Ga. You are my home station. I feel like you are family. I have many wonderful memories of y’all with my children over the last 20 years

Commercials hinder this app
App takes power away from you and forces you to watch commercials when you want to read certain articles and you can't back out of it unless you hit the home button. The webpage is even worst, a big commercial takes up all of your screen when you just want to read the headlines. Other than that the app is stable, articles are updated frequently, doesn't crash like it did before. Some articles are video and don't have words. Overall the app needs improvement 2/5

Super fan
I went out and bought me a Roku tv when Direct TV took CBS off. I don’t like the news on any other network. I believe what I here and learn on WMAZ Channel 13 News. I now have 13+ and CW so I can watch when I want to or need to. Best News Person I have ever watched. Thank You for each News.

App needs a lot of work
I like the station but this app doesn’t do what it says. When reading news stories the links keep jumping all over the place. I prefer to read stories first then do video. The auto play disabling for videos doesn’t work. Not only that but if you pause the video it plays a second time and you have to stop it again. Really glitchy. Thought the update would help this problem but it’s still there. I might as well delete the app because in this state I’ll never use it.

Broken Notifications
Update-3-6-20. The recent update has made no difference to the alerts. I was hopeful it would be fixed but sigh... oh well, all alerts off again for 13WMAZ. Down to 1 Star. My favorite go to is 13WMAZ weather. However the app lacks the ability to only receive weather notifications. You can turn off all but weather notifications but it doesn’t work. I had no choice but to turn off all notifications for the app as I’m not interested in all news notifications.

Ads and old news
There so many ads they send you a notification and you click on it and it’s the story but there’s an ads about there own app that you already have or right now it’s a Roku ad you have to read the story. Most of the time they don’t report the news accurately or even on time WGXA is much better platform the way they’re app is set up is way easier to navigate.

This is a terrific app and local news coverage. Most of the time they publish the address of the local event. It’s worth it to set your GPS and explore Macon. The people are sweet and the family fun events are endless. I love living in Macon. Fun for everyone, bring your dog too. :)

Great content. App design is annoying
Love the content. However the app design kind of ticks me off. It was great before the redesign some months ago. It became harder to find most current news, requiring me to sift through whole categories of info I frankly don’t care about. Another big peeve is that the app frequently pauses music or podcasts I’ll be currently listening to. I’ve emailed support multiple times but they never respond... maybe they’ll see this review.

Need to revisit program
When you go to read an article and then go back, it always takes you back to the beginning of the app instead of where you were when you exited to the article. This needs to be corrected. It would be more convenient and also a time saving aspect.

I have used this app for years to check the weather and get news updates. Since the redesign, I have only used it a handful of times and even then I get frustrated and just close it. This is no longer my go to app!

13WMAZ is my preferred station! I trust the news reporters to give fair and honest and informative news. I love The Andy Griffith Show every weekday at 5:30pm. It’s a calm relief before local news and the national news. There are other features straight from the ❤️.

Best news team in the central Georgia area and beyond. They share the news in a transparent and honest way. That is very hard to find today. The 13WMAZ team are respectful and fair to all parties involved in the news they share. THEY ARE REAL HARD WORKING PEOPLE WITH BIG HEARTS FOR THEIR COMMUNITY AND CARE ABOUT GETTING THE NEWS DONE CORRECTLY!!! REAL NEWS!, STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART!!!

No PiP
I love 13WMAZ but in times of severe weather, it is nice to have PiP to stay in touch with friends and family. Thankfully the website supports it, so I switched there for coverage. With that said, the emergency alerts and local news are great. I’m happy we’ve got such a good app :)

13 WMAZ is great but App is a Zero
I LOVE 13 WMAZ on channel 13 and the anchors are Great but this news app is more like reading an old newspaper than an up to date news report. It’s easy to find what was reported on a week ago but updated info is very rarely accessible on the app. Format is even less friendly than before. I’ll never give up my 13 WMAZ news but I’m looking for a better local news app. That should not be hard to find.

Not Functional
When this app first came out it was great, now more than 10 years later it is so bogged down with relentless ads that trying to click on a story is impossible because the ads overlap and override the content. Why not have the option to pay for it? 41NBC has a very smooth non invasive app so this one is being deleted sadly.
