After the last update was applied, the video takes up nearly the entire screen, and I can only read two lines of text at the bottom. There is no way to close the video. I basically can't read any of the news stories anymore. What the heck did you do to your app?! I guess I need to read my local news elsewhere now.
Since the last update, if my iPad is in portrait mode, the video takes up the entire screen and cannot be minimized so I can read the print. And there seems to be only one size of print, which is gigantic. The option to make print smaller doesn’t work. This used to be my go to app for Rochester news, but not anymore
I use the app for the weather almanac but the rest of the weather on the app seems to be off many times. The temperature will be different many times in two locations on this app. It's good for getting the news when I miss it on TV.
For the last two weeks I will get an alert from app and when I click on the app it opens to a notification screen, I toggle them all on, it then has me put in a zip for location…then nothing! There’s no X to get to the app…I deleted and reinstalled, no change 🤷🏼♀️
Sometimes app freezes on news pages. Also Can’t figure how to get dismiss pop up ads. Local news is not a menu choice until you open one of the local headlines on home page. Needs work to raise its usefulness.
Was a very good news app for the area but over aggressive advertising ruined it. Last add for wilberts wasn't just at bottom of screen but kept trying to play a video every 15 seconds! I'm done with it!
Love channel 8, Rachel Barnhardt & Scott Hetsko weather. I am so sad that your app is really as bad as it is. It's very difficult to get the information your looking for and it would be so easy to make it better!! I hope there is anew version on the design block because this definitely doesn't represent the News 8 organization at all!!
Exact same app as channel 13, same layout and everything. Channel 13's app is nothing special. Be original. 4 stars because at least it doesn't crash like the old one did. Was expecting something better. Oh well.
It repeatedly asks you to turn on bluetooth and connect to accessories. I don't want to connect to any accessories, and I can't make the message stop popping up. I tried selecting app support first, but that just takes you to the regular news 8 website-no support. The app is usable, but annoying.
On your tv commercials you show a 4.5 star rating on this app. The truth is you have 3.5 on all versions. You are not posting the new ratings. You are being deceptive. You probably won't even post this because you are trying to manipulate your results. Your app is no where near 4.5 stars. It's adequate at best. Ken
