Not really customizable
I really don’t like sports, especially the Huskers. Being a native of Omaha I am sick of having Lincoln's FB team jammed down my throat. Especially when they got rid of UNO’s team because of feared competition. So when I got the app and was getting husker updates I sought to eradicate them from my phone. Luckily there is an option to customize the news updates you get in the app... except even after I turned off sports updates, I still was seeing husker updates pushed onto my phone. I would really appreciate it if when I turn off sports, I would not get sports updates on my phone... especially those from a different city FB team.

Please stop the pop ups
Hey guys, having news and weather information at our fingertips is great… opening the app and having video pop ups with audio is not. Having to listen to it for a pre-determined amount of time makes it worse. Especially when trying to stay quiet… The best part of having this stuff on a phone is not having to watch commercials. I understand the need for advertising dollars, but please stop with the video ads. This makes me close the app and go to other news sources. Keep your relevance by not giving your customers things that they don’t want.

Weak app.
No matter where I am at I either can’t pull this app up at all or it takes forever for it to come up. I can sit right in front of router and same thing. This is only app I have problems with. I have deleted it and reinstalled it same problem.

Crashes every time I open it!
Piece of junk app. Since the latest update I have to open it at least 5 or more times to actually get it to work. It just keeps crashing before it even opens. Also, too many ads. It’s gone downhill just like the station has. The anchors on their now are terrible, especially that chick with the monotone voice that acts like she’s going to cry on every story she reads.

Too Many Commercials!!!
I want to read the news on the app and not be forced to endure commercials first—of any length or number. This app continues to deteriorate catering to commercials and not readers. There’s no where on the app to give feedback or to find who to contact which makes it seem like they don’t care about their readers or their input as long as they make money from commercials! Horrible customer focus!

Do you realize that the Buick commercial can repeat 4 to 6 times before the news starts up again. It’s so annoying that we started to turn the app off because it’s been happening a lot. We also have to reinstall and install the app numerous times as it freezes.

It’s changed
It used to be the type in this news app was bold, like Reader view. Now, even though I select large print in this app, it doesn’t change. it’s no longer in bold. It is very difficult to read the news without having it bold face type. I have selected bold tape face and large print on my phone but it still doesn’t change the typeface in this app. I used to be able to read it, now I can’t.

Quality App
Excellent source for local news. Consistently updated including traffic alerts. Push alerts don’t blow up my phone too much. Just the right amount.

Slow news
They post news to slow to this app. Most the time I find local new from hearing it from other people before your app posts it with way less info then I can learn from a friend... one example the music for vets!! That’s really important and you guys posted it around 615 and it ended at 7... way to go do you guys hate vets? words from Ron Swanson dear frozen yogurt be ice cream or be nothing!

Wow so glad I looked at an update from from sweaty guy that can’t speak
I think that coming on less than a minute before other stations then showing a sweaty guy that can’t talk and then having a three minute advertisement ruins it for me. I doubt I will ever looking at breaking news from you again but thank you

Too much news about Covid!
Stop the many news posts on everything about Covid and the experimental vaccine!! It's repetitive and stupid to shove it down our throats day after day after day for a year now! It's ridiculous! Go back to reporting local and national news like you should!

“Breaking news” should not include Nebraska football
Here we go again. Football season and never-ending alerts about football. Sorry but football is not breaking news. The people who want alerts about it can check the box for alerts about spirts news. I guess I’ll have to uninstall the app again until football season is over. 🙄

So hard to use....
Whenever I get a breaking news alert I tap on it and it takes me into the app and that’s where the adventure begins. Have to search and search for the story and never seem to be able to find it so I give up. They need to tweak some things then it should be a good app but right now it’s just too cumbersome and lacks a smooth flow.

App just spins and spins, but rarely opens
This has been an ongoing issue. Today, it took 7 attempts to open before it actually did. I like the story layout, but it doesn’t matter when the majority of the time the app won’t open. Deleting and switching stations. Very disappointed WOWT because I’ve been a long-time follower.

Constantly pushing liberal agenda
This used to be my favorite local news source. But for the last 8 months they have been vomiting nothing but had left liberal agenda. I deleted the app today when I opened it and was forced to watch a Joe Biden ad before I could continue. No bias reporting is a thing of the past. I’ll never again rely on WOWT.

Live broadcasting
I love the live broadcasts. Wintering in AZ and really appreciate keeping up with news, weather, and even the adds.

Launch Issues
Periodically when attempting to launch the app, it hangs up or immediately terminates. Seems like issues began when adds were added to the launch program.

Bad grammar
I am not trying to be mean, I am just surprised that periods and commas are not used correctly and where they don’t make any sense. Stories could be proofread before being posted. Maybe 4th grade grammar being used. Unfortunately, for me, the stories are hard to read with all of the mistakes...

Advertisements are across news stories which make it almost impossible to read them and no way to close out of them to be able to read what’s behind it

Need a separate app for weather??
Can no longer view weather, have to download a special weather app. Why? It was more practical and sensible to have everything in one app. Zero stars for channel 6. Deleted.

Mobile website is terrible
Wow, you’d think a major tv station could produce an interesting and informative website. Not so for this one, it’s terrible. It’s so cumbersome and confusing and muddled up with ads. I’m deleting it as it’s actually irritating.

Update Bug: Frozen Screen
Ever since the last update, the app often freezes. The advertising space at the bottom is empty when this happens so I assume there is a problem loading an advertisement.

Not working
The app has stopped working. Contacted them several times. Now it opens a car ad and then stops working. This app has 115 reviews. The KETV app has 2,500 reviews! Are they ever going to fix it?

Was a Great App
There are annoying pop up ads that you must review and press an x to get to the news. Stop the pop up ads and stick with banner ads.

Just an Ad revenue App
Local news as it is today, is just a giant ad revenue machine; their app is no different. The Weather portion is useful, though, so there’s your 2 Stars.

Full window ad
This might be a good app but when you open it there’s this full page ad that endlessly comes up every time the app is accessed. It annoying because it always pops up first. I just don’t open it anymore because I don’t like the prerequisites. Reviews are redundant Ad’s ad’s ad’s BIG AD’s If you like ad’ this’ll be a good app for you.

Big nope
I open the app only to be greeted with a sleep joe Biden add. Nope. That’s an automatic uninstall. As a news source it is your job to neutrally report the news. Not shove your bs bias. Exactly where fake news is made.
