Americans have a great need to hear the news reported WITHOUT bias. Due to Hillary Clintons ‘despicable’ labeling of the Republican party as “Deplorable's” the “main stream” news reporters seem to agree with her. This is wrong on so many levels. “We the people” have the need, if not the right, to hear the truth reported and are smart enough to make our own decisions about what is right or wrong. This is true of both parties. Obama said that the American people were not smart enough to govern themselves. If the power to govern is put into the hands of the few on Capital Hill, our freedoms (yes yours too) will eventually disappear and a big part of the blame can be put on the shoulders of main stream media. Why? Because too many of the public do not have the knowledge to research for themselves to get the complete story, this doesn’t mean they are ignorant, just educated in other areas. Also much of the blame for so much hate in our country can be laid at your feet also because of so much one sided reporting and their obvious hate for former President Trump. The reporters in New York have the largest part of this blame but it goes down to the local level to some extent also.
To whomever this may concern I know I’m not on the right page that you guys sure don’t seem to make it easy for someone to leave a rebottle y’all had the NFL football game yesterday and it just y’all hate it when will of fortune should’ve been on I really enjoyed that show and I don’t care anything about the football are used to watch football until all these overpaid self righteous players Neal instead of standing up and putting their hand over their heart and being respectful I think that these players are making so much money they don’t care they should have to go to years in the military before they ever get to play football and I just have no respect for him an hour and never watch the game again so please put it on at another time
All over best in news (local and national), community events and weather! Your team is tops in my book! I are primarily tuned in in the mornings beginning with the 4:30 news cast. It is so refreshing to begin the day with a smile thanks to that crew! Professionalism is exhibited, yet the relaxed display and often bit of humor, simply starts my day with that smile! Keep in keeping on!!! Thanks for allowing me to express my opinion and appreciation!
This new version of your News App stinks. It locks up all time while I am trying to open it and I have to get out of the App (sometimes by restarting my phone) then go back in. It also has some kind of counter that puts numbers above the icon that I have no clue what they mean or how to get rid of them. Also all the crazy advertisements you have buried in the news that look somewhat like a news story headline stink. You use to have the best news app out there but now it is the worst.
This is ridiculous. I mean, how many pop-up ads can they cram in? It’s a NEWS app...not a game spam app. WAFF already had horrible writing and tons of errors in their writing. Now you can’t look at 2 news stories without a pop-up add for some janky game no one wants, and they don’t let you skip them without getting redirected to the App Store first. Wish I had a better way to report this and get the app taken off the store. Don’t waste your time on this. I’d rate it -1 star if I could.
Updates 6.6.6, 6.6.7 and 6.6.8 have, in my opinion, been a mess. The screen icon now tells me I have 22 notifications, but upon opening the app there is no way I can find to clear them. And while organizing stories by geographical location is a cute idea, in my opinion it makes getting an overview of the news difficult. Last, navigating in and out of the story tiles is more difficult than needed.
WAFF is my go-to for news. The app is ridiculous. I can’t watch the videos attached to the news story without watching a commercial (understable). The commercial plays, I cannot make it full screen while it plays, then the news video comes on and any time I try to watch in full screen, the app crashes. To reopen and attempt to watch I have to watch yet ANOTHER commercial to get back to where I was originally. Can’t have a great news station with great news stories with a lacking app.
You can help their family to me in there are kind want to 48
I love 48 Your arm great team and we gotten good business to me I feel like 48 is their state of grandma will get paid on this team I know I’ve been there I am paying 48 what is their ETA view me all about Special Olympics your kind wonderful hard worker
I like the prior format better than the recent change. Too much non-news and have to scroll too much to choose news stories you want to read. Would prefer a couple of pages listing all news stories. 15 second ads before news videos usually means that I go to another news source for stories. You do a good job updating and giving up-to-date news it’s just too hard to see an overview of all the news.
They’ve made me start having to watch loud ads that seem to be in Japanese, making it especially hard to figure out how to get out of them. I’m mostly giving up on this app as a result. The other news stations don’t bombard me with useless ads that I don’t even understand. I just want the news, period.
I am not a fan of the updated app. When you click on a notification, instead of opening the article referenced by the notification, it sends you to the Home Screen and you have to hunt for the article yourself.
As the title says the big pictures consume the viewing space. Far fewer news stories. One must not go to several tabs to get a regional news up date. This may be peculiar to my device, but once the initial opening image is viewed and one scrolls Dow, it is just a repeat of the original image,...with more pictures.
The news is rarely updated over the weekend and onTues you will still find Friday’s news articles. With the new update you see even less news than before. When watching Channel 48 the Broadcaster will tell you to go to the app for a link to something and the link is not there.
Maybe three actual news stories sprinkled in between fake news ads trying to get your click. Sadly this is the state of ALL American local news apps trying to squeeze every penny they can from ads. Stick with the broadcast to get news or just use the weather app.
App still will not open even after a so called fix for the Home Screen. App will not open on phone or iPad after automatic update. I had no issues with the previous version. All I get with this update is the 48 logo screen. So frustrating. I cannot recommend this app unless they fix the issues.
The older version of this app was much much better. Way too much advertising now. This new format tends to blend in all the news stories in a “center” reading along with ad boxes and pop ups in the middle and bottom of the screen while scrolling the news. Not happy with this update at all. The prior version was a lot better. Word of advice WAFF: sometimes less is more.
I set the app to only notify my for breaking news. Sports announcements are not breaking news. I tried to repot the issue, however each time I try the app crashes. I will not longer be using the 48 app or be watching their channel. WHNT 19 doesn’t have this problem. They are way better.
This new App is too busy and a lot of navigation is required. The ads overwhelm the news that I am trying to see. I realize that a upgrade may have been needed but you may have lost people like me who read your news 3 or 4 times a day. Thanks
This piece of junk app is useless for serious news. You have to close an ad to even get to a news story then you are assaulted by ads every time you so much as touch the screen. It’s worthless for news. Basically unusable. Shame on WAFF for putting this off on the public.
The only thing that loads when you open the App now is the ads. Have to close and reopen every time, not worth the effort. Same problem with their new weather app update. Was best local Huntsville news app now I don’t even try to use it.
I deleted your app because some stupid developer decided it was ok to allow videos to randomly blurt out when the app is opened. People are sometimes in places where this is unacceptable, like laying in bed next to someone sleeping, in the doctor waiting room etc Moron
Sometimes when I bring up the app and the banner page comes up that’s all i get. I have to force your app to end and restart it. When then it takes about 15-20 seconds before your app completely loads. It is a terrible app.
I agree with other reviewer concerning latest update. Way too much advertising and sports section is horrible. Same sports articles become stale when left on site for weeks. Surely the sports world is a tad more active! I will delete also.
Worst app ever. This new update has the news totally useless. This one is more about advertising than news. It doesn’t update very well to current news. Go back to the old version please. Why attempt to fix something that’s not broke.
You had very good app until last update, now it horrible, same news in to many places has no end just scrolls over and over. I will be deleting this app very soon and use someone else's if not restored to the way it was.
