Info up to date
Each subject gives very needed information that help my family to make decisions about shopping and social events. National and statewide information is always accurate. International information is also accurate. My family and I appreciate the time and energy used to gather the information.

Needs Work
The app seems to focus on certain types of news and doesn’t show a broad spectrum across the Columbia area. Also, I don’t like the fact that you can’t filter what notifications you would like. My phone is constantly notifying me of every little thing from puppies being born to major weather alerts. The weather alerts I want...the puppies, not so much. You don’t want to turn them off because you might miss something that’s actually important. I tried to reach out via feedback to the developers a week or so before leaving a review, but I found that they don’t respond or even acknowledge receipt of feedback. I just moved here so I hope I can find another news app. I do not recommend this one unless you constantly want notifications.

Like but......
Editing is awful. Recently, there was one story that the headline was the exact opposite of the story. Misspelled words, incorrect grammar, sentences that don't make sense, and other errors. My Junior High School paper had better editing. Sometimes when news is slow a really trivial story pops up and I would just rather not be notified. Just for the record, when you are talking about you and somebody else, correct grammar is ------ and me or I. Not me and ------- a number of newscasters have this problem and how can children be expected to use good grammar when newscasters don't.

To many ads
I like the WLTX app but when I need to see the weather or updates on COVID-19, I refuse to sit through an ad about some mobile game. I quickly go to the WIS app. Please shorten the ads if you are going to play them or play the ad after the important video is played. The news is not ‘BREAKING’, or ‘IMPORTANT’ if a 20 second ad for a mobile game is played before the information is given. If not, I can get my weather and news from another site with less useless ads. Thank you for your time and consideration of my comment.

No Fake News Here
Over the years WLTX has worked very hard to be the number one news reporting station in Columbia. I believe WLTX has achieved that status and is now setting the standard on news, sports and weather information reporting. I applaud WLTX management, staff and the support teams on the superior job they are doing now. Keep on “Doing the Right Thing”.

Best network in Columbia
I’ve been watching channel 19 for up to date news and weather forecasts for 60 years! I would have been watching it longer but I didn’t care about the news before then! Thanks for being there for half of those years JR ! Hopefully you’ll hang around until I’m gone!

Best News Station in Columbia, SC
I love following this station daily. I watch live from 5-7 a.m before work, I tape the midday report, the 7pm and 11p.m. Best team for local news! follow up through the news app on my phone. I am hooked! Please convey my thanks to an excellent team. Be blessed, Jeri and my grand doggie Rooney

Good, Informative news app
Notifications are a little frequent, but clear and concise. It tells you The Who, what when, and where of incidents both national & local. I would have to agree that new alerts seem to be on the negative side - violence, criminal activity, etc. if you put on a do not disturb, will the alerts not show up during those times? Sometimes we need a break.

Accurate news
Although the app has way too many ads and some useless notifications, I do appreciate the accurate reporting especially when it comes to typically biased stories about President Trump. The good things he has done for us are not turned upside down as they are in the NY Times which I do not read any more. Limit the ads and only send out breaking news notifications. Jim Gandy does the best weather.

WLTX is the best news channel in our area.
I’m just a WLTX news junkie. I can depend on WLTX for breaking local and national news and I don’t trust any other channel for our weather in SC. You are the best! I’d be hard pressed to say who I like the best because I like all of you. Everybody does an outstanding job. Kudos to WLTX, the best overall news channel.

Better than the competition's app
I prefer the WLTX app over WIS. It is well organized, isn't littered with insignificant news from other parts of SC and Charlotte, and is easy to navigate. The alerts with breaking news, weather and traffic are timely.

Stories and ads
When I start reading a story I am interrupted by ads and junk. I get so tired of having to scroll I usually just forget it and never finish. I know ads are revenue but I am fed up with the placement

App is stable, good local and more news source
My only complaint is that links to show more seems to expire quickly, only the very latest seems to be active links. Other than that, solid app. News is news, and for the most part it seems reasonably fair.

What the hee haw?
This WAS my go to app for traffic in South Carolina. I tried to bring up the Traffic Tracker and I can’t even find it. The old format, with choices on the home page, not stories, was much better. Please fix the app so I can EASILY use Traffic Tracker. Don’t make me dump your app because it’s current format is confusing and useless to me when I’m trying to check traffic or other items in a hurry.

I truly love your in-station programming such as the daily news with Darci, JR and and the early morning news program with Brandon, Whitney and Andrea. They are always so thorough, polite and friendly. No other network matches your demeanor!!

Yeah WLTX!
Thank you for providing “real” people that appeal to all South Carolinians! Your on air talent pool is spectacular! Gandy and Bonds are the most accurate weathermen in the area. I appreciate their steadiness and calmness in frightening situations. Thank you Darcy Strickland for just being YOU! Everyone is outstanding.

Love the breaking news and live videos, but when you’re throwing a 15-60 add I can’t skip through, it really makes it hard to jump in quickly and get the information you’re putting out.

Majority of the stories posted on the WLTX site have numerous spelling and wording errors! Just take an extra 5 mins or another set of eyes to proofread and edit text.

Love coverage but not app
I love how the Channel 19 staff members cover a mix of local, national, and global news—about topics of interest to us South Carolinians. The personalities are so happy and positive! The app is a little hard to use if you’re looking for a specific story.

No longer user friendly
When I open a story I expect to open the story, not just a sentence and a link to the rest of it. It used to do that and you’ve changed it. When I click the link and scroll to read then I get a full page ad. There’s no reason for so many clicks to get to news.

Commenting on stories
I’d like a chance to have a section of each story to make comments. I’m from Utah and our local station KSL has a great app that allows you to make comments. The app also has that best classified section I’ve seen anywhere in the US. Take a look at their app for examples of what people like. Thanks for letting us give feedback.

Terrible Update
The most recent update to this app is poorly done. It reacts slowly, it’s hard to read, it’s poorly laid out, and when backing out of an article you are taken to the top of the home page instead of being returned to the point where you were last reading. This is truly one of the worst updates I’ve even seen made to a news app.

Needs to be fixed
The notifications are great, on time, and consistent, but once you click on them it freezes. I can never get to the actual story once the notification is clicked. It stays frozen and I have to close the app completely. Major bugs and glitches

Update is awful
For starters, you can’t set font size permanently. I have to adjust for every story each time I open app & even switching stories. Swiping up to get to next story is ridiculous—bring back left to right. There’s no flow, have to go back to main page after 2 stories. All in all I’ve given up on this app.
