So far so good. You listened to your reviewers. Enjoying the ability to read the article as well as watching the video, allowing the user that make the choice. I love the fact that you've reduced the advertisements and placed them in the lower portion of the page, no more intrusive pop ups in the middle of the articles while I'm reading. These adds were so annoying almost to the point of stopping me from using the app. to obtain my news. It looks like you've done your homework and retained the important features, removed the annoying ones and added the correct number of fixes and updates. Now if you can make minor refinements over time along with a few intuitive updates to remain current we'll have a positive award winning app. Congratulations
Response to GINNEC , ACCUSING WHTM OF BEing too liberal .
It depends on how we define liberal. I mainly watch WHTM for my local news and givE WHTM credit for its balance balance its direction down the centrist lane. Being critical of Trump has become a necessity , as his ego is too unstable to handle the job. Trump’s incompetence and refusal to face the reality that this pandemic is a crisis deserves much press coverage. Trump’s mismanagement of the pandemic is the most newsworthy event since 911. Even though I’m a democrat I wish that trump had succeeded because we all could’ve benefitted if Trump had succeeded .
Since I am blocked by the greed war between your owners and Directv. It would be great if I could stream my otherwise favorite news cast. I’m having to go to another local channel in the meantime. Would rather be watching your broadcast.
This app worked fine until this update . It seems like it is more happy throwing a Sheply pop up in your face every time you open up the app, than it is just doing what it is supposed to be doing , giving you the news. I had this app opened twice today reading a story and both times it automatically closed the app after about a minute or so. Try really fixing the bugs and get rid of that stupid pop up at the beginning of opening your app up, it’s old already. If this auto closing continues I will be forced erase this app off of my iPad altogether.
I like to watch your weather. The only problem is you do not do the weather for Berks County in Bernville. We watch you from our antenna. The news we get from our satellite is all Philadelphia news and we are not interested in that news. I was originally from Newville and I still have family there. I like the news from Cumberland County.
There’s so much wading to do just to read one story. There’s so many really annoying ads and gross click bait, that the bad visual experience isn’t worth the stress of trying to find out local news. Their website is the same. Would rather never go to their digital content than have to see so much click bait and ads. Clean it up! Can hardly tune in live so want to get news online.
Too many notifications about their digital sight/notifications.
We are getting annoyed by our phones going off all Day and Evening with notifications about Channel 27 new digital system. Please have it stopped or we will delete the app Why did you send notice of Bidens town notice but made no notice of President Trump bein on another network. I’m retired from my company but will talk to or current directors to stop any and all advertising on your ABC affiliate station. SHAME on you!
With this app I prefer to read most of the articles, but the pesky videos at the top of the screen, once entering a story, automatically play. And there is sound, even if your phone is on vibrate. I’d love the setting for the ads and video to be automatically paused and then the user can select to play the video if they wish.
I had ABC27 REACHING OUT TO HELP every time I called. Golf tournaments for NATIONAL M. S., cookies to send our Men & Women in Combat, Dennis OWENS and his team said we need Home Made Christmas Cookies to send our Troops and people from 4 States came RUNNING IN 2 weeks we had over 700 Lbs. of THE BEST HOMEMADE CHRISTMAS COOKIES IN THE AIR. THANK YOU 904 for helping, THANK YOU DENNIS ABC27. Ted Anspach
I used to use this app all the time to check my local news- it did just what I wanted it to do- quickly showed me local news stories. Now it gets slower and slower as I read the articles, with some times they hardly load at all- I just get the stories image at the top of the article and grey lines where text should be. Basically, it’s almost not worth using!
I stopped using it. It takes a long time to load up then the first thing you have to deal with is the ad. It is slow as far as up to date radar ( 10 minutes or so late), and is on an older google map landcover.
I have always watched ABC, but you have all gotten to Liberal. I can’t stand the brow bearing of Trump. I only watch it for weather anymore. No news. I turn the channel to the ID channel, or watch my recorded shows. This is the way it will stay Until it changes on your end. Thank you Ginny Clark
Sorry I was a multi day user but rarely check now as harder to navigate and view. Classic example of probably a new manager who wants to impress with changes and is not from our area and doesn't understand the viewers. Get rid of the pop up ad at beginning especially the same ad.
Decent app. But the 30 seconds for every news clip is so annoying that I just switched to the cbs news. I understand the app needs to make money. But I thought all the pop ads were good enough. No worries still a decent app. Just not for me!!
The volume keeps cutting off in the middle of the news… If you back out and go back in to try and fix the issue… it plays more commercials before it lets you get back to the news. They should just have the whole morning news recorded so you can play straight through then. I really hate this app… I just want to see the news without having to back in an out to get it to work! And stop playing the same commercial over and over again!
What is wrong with your traffic app. Nothing opens at all. You cover the same stories at 5, 5:30 and 6. During one of those times could you please report that your WEB page traffic app is down so viewers get something relevant.
The latest updates have made notifications not work as requested. I keep getting notified about the digital center when I have turned off the notification for it. Every night I’m notified I go in and check and yes it’s turned off. Please fix this. Super annoying.
Why isn’t this available on my Apple TV but on every other apple device?? It’s a pain to stream it from my iPhone or iPad to my Apple TV it keep going off and on for some reason. Searching for it on Apple TV still can’t find it
Inconsistent performance. The app frequently shuts down and won’t start unless you turn-off and restart the ipad. Also, multiple videos will seemingly start playing spontaneously and won’t stop unless the iPad is turned off.
