Very slow and a storage hog
When it is accessed, the load is laggy at best. And no setting provision for clearing the cache means that the space used keeps growing. Have to delete and then re-install. Only do so because I do need a local news source.

Worse with each update!
Every update just makes it worse than before! Weather can. It scroll through hourly anymore! They finally got some bugs fixed but these past two updates have them doing “pinned” section right off at loading on something’s!! That feature should not be there as not everyone wants consecutive anything shoved down their throats!! WCHS used to be pretty much down the middle, but in more recent months, they have really been pushing national articles from the national desk that are targeting a certain group of humans!! I’m about ready to drop the app for something more Middle of the road!!

Needs up dated
This app needs updated. Wsaz news is a lot better. Really need to update the breaking news. The app should update every time u click on it and it don't. Until this app is up dated I will use wsaz to get the breaking news.

Version 8.5.0 bugs NOT fixed
This app was pretty good until version 8.5.0. Now clicking ANY link in the story causes my iPhone screen to go dark. Then I have to close the app and reopen to read the next story. Gonna use other local news apps until this is fixed.

So-so
Some days, the app works great. No complaints. Others, it's miserable and not worth hassling with. I don't have cable so listening to the morning broadcast on my phone is the easiest way for me to get the news. But here recently the sound hasn't been working. It will work if I go to the WCHS website so it's not my phone. I also tried it on my iPad with the same issues. Maybe we need a new update for sound issues??

Viewing position
This app only works in the vertical position on my iPad. If I'm viewing apps horizontally and open this app, it comes up sideways and stays that way so I have to I turn the iPad to view vertically. Aggravating! The news reports are informative and up to date but a bit lacking on the weekends. Not too bad. Needs a little work.

What were you thinking? Works now!
Downloaded update 3/20 and the app works again. Thanks. Just updated this app. Big mistake. HUGE MISTAKE. New feature opening ads in Safari means having to launch the app repeatedly. Unbelievably inconvenient.

Huge headache to use
WCHS was my favorite news station for broadcasts while living in WV. After moving, I still like to keep connected with what's going on "back home" and used this app plus the website to do so. This app is nearly unusable after the update. I have the same issue as others with every click opening a popup ad in safari. I'll stick with WSAZ until this is fixed.

App needs update
This is an ok app but to make it great I would like to see the other stuff like traveling WV and WV wildlife get updated more the stories that are on there are from May they need to try and keep the app up to date with the web site or just take the other stuff off and just the news

Update
I enjoy the news from this app. However the videos that go along with the story's rarely play. I would enjoy watching the video versus reading the articles. Could you please update this app so I can watch the video's. Other than that I enjoy getting the news from this app. I would rank it higher if the video's actually played.

Horrible app
As other users have said, this app is horrible after the most recent update. It is so annoying to have the app close & Safari open for an ad with everything you click on. The app wasn't that great anyway, but this just makes it unbearable.

No Pop-up Ads Please!
I would give this app zero stars if possible. Since the update, it is basically unusable for me. I do not like that every time you try to click on an article, a window opens in Safari for an ad. Channel 8 is my favorite station, but I will be deleting this app 😔

Please fix app
I wouldn't recommend this app. Every time I click on it it clicks off no matter how many updates. This app needs some major fixing. I like channel 8 news but unable to use the app. Please fix!!!

Not a good news app
This news app does very little to cover local news. They seem more preoccupied with celebrities, national scandals, and useless national information not involving WV. Plus, ads pop up constantly. If I want TMZ, I'll download their app.

This app is now unusable.
The updated app now bounces you out of the app and into an ad in the Safari browser whenever you click on a story. Pain in the eyeballs.

Poorly maintained
I agree with the majority of reviews. Behind the Kitchen Door hasn't been updated in months. I've checked the app for news and find I must look to channel 3 app to find the news I'm seeking.

Poorly maintained app
Wchs does not update news articles- usually takes 24 hrs to update. Their local tv competitors are much better at keeping public informed. I prefer wchs on live tv but not on the mobile app.

Yesterday’s news
The app now only gives the “latest” news, from yesterday. I do not think they ever post anything that happens in real time.

WCHS is usually last in updating latest news. Download WOWK and WSAZ.

Terrible news station.
Horrible news coverage. Worthless iOS app. Station starts flame wars on face book. Just ick. WCHS is pathetic. On TV, on iOS and on the web. Try WSAZ or WOWK for real up to the minute news updates. WOWK has an awesome iOS app.

BAAAADDDDDD!
On TV this news station rocks!! But as far as this app goes, WSAZ so has them beat! Here's a hint for the makers of this app. Check out WSAZ and take some tips from their app.
