I watch Channel 3 every morning, and night. The staff on the air are so personable, authentic, and caring. Each of of the cast looks like they could be our neighbors and friends. The news is current, relevant and expressed with the interests of the public as if it effects us personally. I applaud the behind the scene staff for supporting the various functions of the news shows and plan to watch Channel 3000 news,weather and sports forever!
It's working, and working well! Finally, this long frustrating app is actually very nice to use. I haven't had anymore crashes. The notifications are very timely and will go right to the story when opened. The main page is laid out nicely and it is very easy to get to the stories I select. Thank you!!!
I can’t tell you how’s my stories I’ve clicked on recently, only to see a “Watch Live Now” link and NO STORY. What if I want to know the story 2 weeks later? It takes me to the live feed, which ISN’T HELPFUL. I wanted to see stories about how to help local restaurants, and how the decision is being made whether or not to send kids back to school... there are NO stories! Also, I wish I could choose what types of alerts I get. I just want breaking news (with a story attached). I don’t want “Coming up on our 6 AM newscast!”
I'm not sure I like the new format. So far it's confusing. I also don't know if the news is not being updated in a timely fashion or I just can't find the new stories. I love the addition of obits, but it seems like they are incomplete and not updated daily. Overall on the right. Just needs to be tweaked. Starting to crash a lot. The font is horrible, very hard to read. No way to change it.
In living on the Eastside of Janesville and your tower is closer to the west side of Madison we end up with channel 58 out of Marshall/ Milwaukee! We really like the 3000 a lot and Milwaukee news doesn’t interest us much! I’ll keep going on line to get your coverage as you cover Rock County very well! Thanks for asking!
This app is rubbish! I get a news update on my feed, school canceled or major news updates; however, when I tap on it, the article does not load, I am almost always left looking at a blank screen. The pop ups are garish and annoying. The “view live” requires flash and a Facebook account. This is the iOS AppStore; we don’t have flash with iOS!! Furthermore, with all the scandals surrounding FB, many of us have deleted our FB accounts. I ONLY keep the app for major, headlining events and school closures, due to weather.
The app is ok. It’s better than it was and I can get some of the info I’m looking for relatively easily, but still a little cumbersome finding things. My biggest problem with the app is the ADS. For an informational app, I have never seen so much advertisement. A lot of the advertisements are for the station - hello, I’m already using your app, do you really need to advertise your station and your app while I’m using it? As I said, it’s an OK app.
Seems like every time you start scrolling it jumps back uptop! Plus whoever is editing or writing has a fourth grade education! Ghetto speak, etc…. Pretty pathetic for a well established news organization! Very disappointed!!!
Wow, this is what an upgrade should do. I rated the app at 1 star earlier because it was virtually unusable. Crashed everytime I tried it. I saw there was an update today and when I used it, the problems seemed to be fixed. Now, it seems to be a very well laid out and pleasing source of news, etc.
With a new update a video news clip always pops up. The only way to get it to leave my screen - even after closing the app- is to force the app closed. I just want to scroll the headlines and now it is a huge pain. Going to delete for now until they remove that feature. This had been my go-to app for Madison news
Ads every time you click for a news story. When you have a breaking news story it goes to a video feed pauses and you have a 15 second commercial and then you find out they not covering the story now. Weather area used to be the best around but now they basically make you search all around just to find minimal info. I give up
If you are going to send notifications about certain articles. DONT TAKE ME TO THE WATCH LIVE SECTION. If I want to read about a particular article I was notified about, that’s what I want to read. If I see the notification an hour later it makes it completely pointless to even click on it. Then I have to try and dig to find that article. OPEN THE ARTICLE THAT MATCHES THE NOTIFICATION LIKE EVER OTHER NEWS APP
As a businessman, artist, and outdoors sports person, Channel 3000 News and Weather apps keep me up-to-date on important civic news, and weather tracking, keeping me safe, and informed! Thanks Channel 3000
The new and ‘improved’ app has been out a couple months. Still will not load any weather radar. I upgraded to a new phone - for other reasons - and it continues. It’s a huge step backwards in app functionality. I just deleted it and will be trying other Madison news apps.
The last update has destroyed the ability to use live streaming. Now I can only use it from the website using Google chrome. The old version was better. Please fix this asap Update April 2021 Video sometimes works but the app still is not great to use Anna's navigate.
This app would be great IF it would actually load the articles and not only show the pictures... and if your lucky and you can read the article prepare to be kicked out! If I try to use this app 5 times in the day I'm lucky to get it to work 2 of those 5 attempts. 👎
Don’t you think it’s about time you cut back in the covid vaccine rhetoric. It takes up so much of every newscast that you hardly have time for important local news stories. It just becomes repeat, repeat, repeat day after day after day. 😵💫
News coverage is nice, but there is no option for types of alerts. I like and want the breaking news alerts, but the daily or sometimes multiple times a day alerts for some random news story they have on their over the air broadcast is ridiculous.
Whenever you are in a list of stories and scroll down a bit the app refreshes and sends you to the top again. This is maddening! Clicking on notifications crashes the app as often as it brings you to what you clicked on. Usability needs a lot of work.
It is nearly impossible to scroll, as the app continually jumps back to the top or near top of the page you’re viewing when looking through news stories or obits. It’s very frustrating and I now mostly use another local news app.
I have always enjoyed your news and the app. However the screen continues to bounce back and forth to review the ads. The obits are impossible to even read. My wife and friends say the same thing. I know it’s about revenue but I am close to deleting your app. Thanks Curt Regali
It would be nice for a news gathering organization to be objective and in Their reporting! They are far from that! It is so disheartening to see them so obviously one sided! Therefore I don’t believe a word of what they report! I only continue to read it for local weather and sports
...but now there are too many stories that are solely video and not written out. What’s wrong with actually letting us read the story? What if we want to get informed by your app but don’t want to constantly download videos?
App always crashes when you open it from a notification. Attempted to open the app and watch a live video and the sound didn't work. Never have any luck with this app. Needs a TON of work. (iPhone 7 Plus) user.
