I installed this for local weather and then found out there's a separate weather app.

Crashes after commercials
For their Ad revenue it must work fantastic, but from a standpoint of getting the local news the app is useless. You get a notification of a story, click the notification to get more info, sit through the commercial, then the app crashes and closes. Like a fool you can try again but the process repeats. I am sure they get the credit for the ad revenue though. If and when you are lucky enough to have the app last beyond the commercial, you land on their main headlines page, but good luck finding that story you just got a notification on, because chances are the headlines you see won’t seem related to the notification message at all....... I deleted it to reinstall to see if it improved, which it didn’t, so I have now deleted for good. Stick to their Facebook page. The app notifications always said Weather was live on Facebook anyway when something important was going on. Unless they are live over the air they won’t be live in the app. It used to be much better, but lately the app is just more hassle than it is worth.

It's ok
I switched to a new news app because my last one completely revamped the app to everyone's detriment. This ones ok, but my biggest complaint is PLEASE stop putting the article title over the pictures. It is very distracting. Tonight for example, the heading was "82 year old man missing..." And his picture was posted, but you can't even see it because of the title...that happens with every article. What's the point of even using any photos if the viewer can't view them?

Annoying Notifications
The Fox 45 app itself is OK for news, but lately the push alerts have gotten excessive. Every few hours, it send out an alert about a live Facebook broadcast..."We're going LIVE on Facebook at 10am," "We'll be having a LIVE weather Q&A on Facebook at 1pm," etc. I really only want push alerts about breaking news. I finally decided to just delete the app today. My phone is much quieter. :-)

Click on Notification, Go To Unrelated Story
Here’s an example: today I received a notification that there was a shooting. Clicked that as soon as it popped up & it only took me to the main page, where all the news was. Except that particular story. Say what??

Slow app and lots of inaccuracies
This is an okay app to get up to date info on local news. It freezes up often, which is frustrating. And the info reported is often inaccurate and contains many grammatical/spelling errors. Wish they would spend some more time correcting the app.

No sound
I watch this every morning or at least try to. Over half the time there isn’t any sound. I’ve noticed other people having the same problem. I don’t have this problem when I use this app on my iPad Pro.

Delete this foolishness
This app doesn’t even play sound.. please delete this foolishness and download WBAL news 11. At least they stay up to date and I can hear the news clips... shame on this app for taking up space on my device... I do not recommend this lazily administered foolishness to a single Baltimorean ..... do not download!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unfortunately with this latest version it is impossible to actually use the app to do anything but view ads. If you actually try to read news, all it will do is throw you out of the app into Safari where it will show you an ad.

Off switch for the commercials
I would give the app 5 star if they weren’t jamming Toyota commercials down our throats. I hate foreign car commercials, it’s unpatriotic. Fix the app so we can skip these relentless, unwanted commercials. BUY AMERICAN!!

Toyota Commercials
Every time I attempt to view a notification I get a Toyota add and then not connecting and tells me to “retry!” When I go to the actual app I cannot find the “notification” I clicked on. This app is terrible for trying to find out what is happening!

This news app is not kept up to date. Fox 45 apparently has not hired anyone to keep the app up to date on Saturday or Sunday! What good is a news app if it is not kept up to date.

Phone heats up when watching videos
Once you play a video for a good length of 3 minutes or more, my iPhone 11 Pro Max started heating up like crazy and battery drains fast! It’s the app’s fault and not the phone! Please fix!

The app is useless. Before the March 3 update it was a 50/50 chance the app would work. Now it just keps giving an error message. Totally useless. CBS local is much more reliable.

Today is October 15, 2019 As usual your app stops all music, over and over. When you can’t fix this, it’s time to remove it. I’m sure it’s an issue for everyone.
