Tough to navigate
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.

Navigation Issues Persist
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.

Not updated
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.

Canceled the Text Sevice
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!

Terrible Live Feed
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!

Excellent source of news
News 8000 brings me a balanced combination of local and national news. While drinking a cup of coffee I can be brought up to speed on the happenings in my community and the entire world in less than 30 minutes. Love it!

😊 I like it because I don't have to listen to Walker's lies!
I don't watch tv much this time of year. I hate the lies and misinformation that Scott Walker and his Republican cronies spread about their opponents ! This way I get to pick what I read and hear.

Best news reporting
You are always the first new station I get on line that reports the breaking news even before my Milwaukee stations and national news sources. Keep up the great work.

Remember when this was good for local news?
Was a great app! Now the stories are old and there are a lot of video stories that I would like to read not watch (data charges). At this juncture it isn't worth the space on my phone.

Video ads ruined it
Used to be a decent news app but the video ads they put in the latest version ruined it. I've stopped using it.

All you get is a settings screen, with font sizes. That's all I've had for weeks now. Don't waste your time.
