Visually I prefer this app to other local news apps, and it used to function really good. Occasionally, the app crashes for no reason. A more recent glitch, the badge on the app shows a new notification, so I open the application. Every time I open the app (and I mean EVERY time), the (notification) bell icon is missing front the top bar. The only way to navigate to the list of notifications is via the bell. So I navigate to the settings, and choose “Enable Notification Inbox”, and then go to bell icon and read notifications. The next time I receive a badge notification... you guessed it... repeat. So VERY annoying!
Usually pretty good, but every once in a while, it will close out whenever you click on anything which is very irritating (putting it nicely)!! And also it gives update breaking news notifications, but doesn’t show up on the app till hours later.
I have had this app for several years. Unfortunately they have added misleading advertisements that look very similar to their stories recently. I do not recommend this to anyone that is looking for factual news anymore because the ads can be misleading. It is sad that so many of our “news” sources are more interested in $$$ than actually informing us about what’s going on. I understand that profits are important, but these ads really look like their real stories and are extremely misleading.
I used to like WNDU, then I learned how they treat the people in their articles! Total disrespect for the recently deceased, accused etc. Not to mention how all of their political articles are overly emotional and biased making them atrocious. Ignoring all that, the app itself is quite buggy. It often crash while launching, the weather radar struggles pretty hard and the ads they run are the kinds of ads you’d expect to either give your computer a virus or rip you off.
The comment section moderator is a right wing Trumper that bans folks for opposing views. The content of my comments never had any vulgarity or name calling or anything of the sort but, was banned anyway. On the other hand the comments from folks on the right were and continue to be rude and threatening. It is an echo chamber and dangerous for our country to have so much media ( radio, local news, and newspapers both on and offline) owned by Sinclair or their cohorts.
why does a weather app have ads? it’s so annoying. im trying to look at the weather but i have to wait 30 seconds while an ad plays😂 and 30 seconds feels like an eternity when waiting for a boring ad to stop. this app never used to have them and i know apps have ads that’s a fact i just find it random and odd that a weather app of all apps have ads. i’m tired of it.
Was looking for a story on the big red bar. Did not find this section user friendly. It would take forever to find what you’re looking for. No search area available on the entire site. That would make the site so much more user friendly. No back < button to be found. I was really shocked at the lack of ease of use. I’m going to take my own action and DELETE!!!!!
There are plenty of advertisements already. Now users are required to see an advertisement before seeing headlines. I am deleting this app as I cannot stand the blaring startup when I am passing time in public places.
I’m surprised your picture of the FBI most wanted is not centered so it’s easy to read. Someone took the picture from a side... It’s difficult to make out the picture or the writing of the poster. I would expect more from 16
I ABSOLUTELY hate this app since you updated it. The weather radar is gone and now transfers you to another app First Alert that is SO hard to read and follow. Nothing on it is easy to understand like the old app was. Why did you mess with a great app and turn it into something so sub par it’s laughable? Ugh
There needs to be a clear definition of what a breaking news alert entails. A sting of vandalism in Warsaw, a traffic jam in Shipshewana, a opening of a new Restaurant opening, or someone dyeing in South Bend should not classify as a breaking news. Getting 15 alerts each day over these types of things are extremely frustrating.
I have used this app for many years but it was hacked a week or so ago, a yellow text warning popped up with instructions... I simply shut it down and then deleted the app. After a few days I reinstalled it but it was broken! Deleted again and won’t be reinstalling it.
Why does your staff continue to post news stories that are not fact check or hell, just edited like a professional news organization. WNDU HAS TURN INTO A FAKE NEWS, conservative hating,AP regurgitation, yellow press organization.
This app is for reading historical news, you get push notifications but when you click on it the app opens to just the regular news in the app not the story (which won't be in the app for a few hrs) and the push notification will have vanished. A few weeks ago I lost power I was searching for any updates and searched the app and the face book page but nothing. So I sent them a msg telling them I had no power and the area I was in. I got a response a few hrs later stating "we know" smh. Story wasn't in there app till the following day. Why have a means to spread and report news quickly but never use it??????
It's a nice app. I use it for weather only, so I wish you would make an app for just weather like WSBT did. However, it is easy to get to the weather in this app and intuitive enough to figure out where other weather things are. Some of the weather icons (rain specifically) are a bit hard to figure out against the background. I like the side scrolling hourly forecast on the weather overview. Much improved over the last app!
This app is only getting worse. I can't watch the news live because it won't work 99% of the time so can we go back to the Syncback option so I can at least see the local news sometime within a 24 hour period?
This app has had ongoing problems since its creation. It's really a disappointment. Most of the time it crashes, but when it does work, it seems I have holes in my local news coverage. These app developers could take a cue from WSBT's app, which has become my go to for local news. Fix it 😕
I am signed up to receive only breaking news alerts with your application but I keep getting spammed with random push notifications! "Countdown to Kickoff is about to start" is not breaking news! Please try to keep these notifications to only REAL breaking news and not programming reminders!
There's so much wrong with this app I don't know where to start. 1. Just look at the weather picture above. Whats the deal with the days? Did someone re-order the days? Hourly is just as bad. Neither the days or the hours are in proper order. 2. When going from story list, to a story, and back, it puts you at the top of the list rather than where you were and you have to scroll through the entire list to get where you left off. Inexcusable. There's more but I'll quit here.
I used this app all the time but now they have ads and app downloads right in the MIDDLE of the news stories, so if you try to scroll you will touch the ad or download button. Who thought that was a good idea?
