When scrolling through the news items, the ads get in the way. I frequently find that I’m unexpectedly back at the top item. Very challenging compared to other web pages using iPhone. Using a PC however doesn’t produce these navigation issues.
While scrolling, I find myself back up at the top of the page. This is so frustrating that I have considered deleting the app entirely, but I have talked myself into waiting on an update. Well I decided to check the reviews to see if anyone else has had the same issue. Yep. Seems that this has been a known issue for over TWO years. I guess they just don’t care to fox their known glitches. So I will be deleting. Not worth the hassle when there are other local news apps out there that update regularly and don’t have the same glitches.
News updates slow to come. Some stories never concluded. Always plenty of ads though. Just like their TV news and TV programming. Realizing it is a business but one 30 second story to every 4 minutes of ads is abusive.
I only had to download this app because they are canceling the text service for school cancelations. When i opened the app it asked me to allow notifications, so I did because I need them for the weather. When I tried turning off the news notifications I realized there was not an option to do so unless I turn them off completely. This app is a waste of my time.
Whenever I’m scrolling down through the news, the app will suddenly pop me right back at the top for no reason! Drives me crazy!! I tend to just scroll the news on the website. FYI, I use an iPhone 13 now but last was the XS Max, had same problems with both!
It would be nice if you could watch more than 30 seconds of the live feed without the screen freezing and eventually just shutting off. Sections on the app are tough to find me navigation is difficult at best. I’ll watch WXOW in the morning!
