This app is absolute trash. Crashes all the time never plays videos properly but of course plays the ads just fine🙄🙄🙄big surprise… misspelling in articles all the time. Whoever runs this app and types these articles needs to be fired .. Do better!!
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.
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?
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. :-)
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??
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.
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.
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.
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!!
App was working fine until 3 days ago. Still get new news alerts but actual news feed on page has not changed In three days. No help option. Uninstalled and reinstalled and still no change. I have a iPhone 6 Plus.
This is one stupid site now my screen stays black for its opening page and than when you go to the explore part and hit local it goes black again. I guess they really know how to update their site. Horrid I.T. Division. Got rid of it
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!
Check out your competition!!! WBAL just bombed out in a big way with their updated horrid/questionable/ugly/convoluted app. They have nothing but 1 star reviews. You guys need to strike while the iron is hot and get better!!!!
