I updated the app a few days ago, and now, when I click on a headline in my notifications, the story doesn’t open in the app. It just goes to the main newsfeed page. Then, when I try to open a story on the newsfeed page, it doesn’t always open, just kind of buffers, and I have to close and open again. This is very inconvenient and frustrating. This is my go-to news app and I never had this problem before. Please fix ASAP!
This channel 3 news app is fantastic if it works. But after the update it just crashes. It won’t turn on at all. I’m on iOS version 12.1, which is older I know. But there was no way to get around updating. It wouldn’t let me turn the app on unless I updated. Very disappointing. I’m heartbroken.
I'm currently using version 6.11.6, build number 145 on an iPhone 6s running iOS 10.0.2. This most recent version of the app has become practically unusable to me due to the fact that it continually takes me to the App Store for who knows what, and most recently even opened some gaming page that brought up a notification that it wanted me to click "OK" to while I was trying to read one of the articles. Instead I quit the app and closed the browser window. You MUST do something to address this behavior. I can't read a single article or even scroll through the list of articles without being transferred to the App Store against my wishes. This is a MAJOR usability issue which needs to be fixed pronto. I will not be able to use the app again until this gets addressed.
I’ve had this app for a while attempting to stay current with local news. But the app consistently fails at accomplishing that. Periodically, the app will generate an alert about something happening in the region. But if you click the alert to open the app and read more, there isn’t more to read. The article will claim it is a “developing story” (or similar) and provide no more info than was contained in the alert. I think they are just trying to get their advertisements in front of more eyes. When I have used the app to read local news, articles are very shallow in content and “reporters” rarely ask questions that should be answered. Rather, they talk a little bit about what is happening, but never seek or provide substance. Apparently this “news” group is all about selling ads and fitting coverage into their on-air schedule with far less attention being spent on actually getting information to the region they cover. I’ll keep the app on my device so that I get alerts about what is happening locally, but for details about those alerts, you’ll need a different source (and app).
The latest update of this app must have a glitch because at least the live broadcast at noon doesn't work. I've tried it on LTE and wifi. I loved the previous version and I love the looks of the new version
Many stories will contain video and then the video will not be available. Every time you launch the app you have to swipe through 5 panels of directions explaining how to operate the app. Ridiculous. The best is when they "push" breaking news with notifications and when you go to read the story, the breaking news article or story isn't even into the app yet!!! Even if you refresh and close out and reopen it. And this is true wether I'm on my 4g lte or my 60mbps wireless internet. And I have a 6S Plus.
I love how easy to use this app is compared with other Syracuse news apps. You can quickly swipe through top stories and watch the live weather radar. Also, notifications let you know when there's big news around town or when a storm is about to hit.
Every headline, whether important or not, get pushed through as a breaking news alert, ruining my battery life. The only other option is to turn off alerts completely. Also, the Weather section is usually not helpful. I'd rather see a small section verbalizing what to expect in the forecast, rather than decipher the meaning of a snowflake symbol at 4am. Light snow? Heavy snow? Lake effect snow? Etc. A few minor changes would improve this app drastically.
Not only are the staff @ WSTM are great. So is the app!! Yes the browser opens so you can get the entire story. But that is a great way to keep the content simple & decrease the chance for the app to crash. Thanks WSTM. I am so glad to see this app. Tried WSYR. Too much content & way too many ads. Can't wait to see what comes next. :))))))
This is the worst news app on my phone! You run the same stories for days at a time. I check in with other news apps such as News Channel 9 and they are far more superior to your site. They update their stories on a daily if not hourly schedule leaving your news in their dust. I am deleting your app for lack of interest!!!!!! Too bad you don’t take more interest in your mobile news app programming!
This app used to be great, but since the new update you can't even use the app. Every time you click into an article it automatically opens into the App Store, trying to get you to download some game, then when you click the button on top to go back to CNY Central, it goes right back to the app store. Very disappointing & frustrating, I expect better from a news channels app. Please fix ASAP!
Used to be a great app, now it's kinda pathetic. the fact checking leaves something to be desired (ex: Berlin is in Germany, NOT Greece). Also, the links hardly ever work, no more comment section and the cover pics need to be centered better. Ugh. Seriously thinking of dropping this app. Also turned on WEATHER ONLY notifications and am getting notifications for everything. Come on guys, get it together!
Superior app, programming, and staff. They don't have to troll local car dealerships for their anchors. More content and less ads compared to the crappy channel 9 app. Channel 9 fails at yet another technological advance.
Ever since the last part of August 2022 I can’t see it Because of a message that is down the middle and I cannot even see the end of that there is no way of viewing this any longer and it used to be my favorite. I was able to get to the end of the message on the Weather app but not this one.
Great app! CNY Central got it right. Whole app is easy to navigate and looks great! Can get the latest weather (ideal for every Central New Yorker), shop for local deals and get the latest news on what's happening in CNY. A must download!
For the past couple if weeks this app dies on start up. I never get to see any news which is disappointing considering this is how I catch up on stuff. I have even posted my frustration in twitter but no one has said anything....like maybe we are trying to figure it out. Or thanks for the heads up. Ugh?!!!!?!!!?
They recently changed the app. When I press a news story from my notifications, it doesn’t go to that news story. It just takes me to all the headlines. I scrolled and scrolled and never found the stories I received notifications on.
It closes as soon as you open it and apparently I'm not the only person who has this problem...want to send people the news as it happens? That's great! I get the alerts, but I cannot open up your app - disappointing and frustrating.
Would get a better review if the app rotated to wide screen instead of vertical only. Doesn’t work with the iPad Pro 12 with a keyboard and screen protector stand. Annoying that it locks in tall mode only.
I've installed and opened it twice now. It does not do anything. It is stuck on first info page saying tap icon listing. Can not move it from there or 'go back' to app store via iOS link on iPad 2 on the top of the screen
The app worked normally for a short time, then the it shut off seconds after it opened. I erased it and reloaded it. Once again it worked normally for a short time, then the same thing happened. I am done trying!
Every time I go to play a video I have to wait for a half a minute to a minute ad after which I get a message box stating that "Your video cannot be played at this time." EVERY TIME?! Come on. Get this fixed!
