Animal Welfare
Thank You for the opportunity to express my thoughts on your station. I enjoy watching your news coverage morning, noon and night. I am extremely pleased and impressed by your continuous coverage of situations good and bad, that go on in our community concerning animals. Being an animal lover myself, I do so appreciate your stories and highlights. Thank you for taking the time to inform and investigate, especially the animal cruelty-dog fighting rings, that go on all over the surrounding counties as well as ours. The only way to help these poor innocent souls is to call out and bring to light the torture and barbaric events that continue to happen. Hopefully, Mississippi will change their laws and start handing down stiffer penalties.

Growing up with channel 7news

I have tried this app before. I saw that it says that it has been updated. So I decided to give it another try. It still does not work. This app will not open unless "Location Services" are turned on in settings. This is NOT necessary for any of the other 265 apps that I use. I am the victim of extreme, stalking abuse and would NEVER want to broadcast my location at all times. I also use a VPN to block tracking. Literally, all other apps that I use, including WBRZ News app, my national news app, and all shopping, editing, and gaming apps, open and work just fine with zero problems. In fact, most apps give the option to refuse to allowing any tracking at all. Please fix your app so that all residents of the area can view the local news conveniently at any time too.

Hard to Find
I have such a hard time finding anything on this app. Your weather app spends time with video sucking up power at a time when we may not even have power, rather letting me read or hear just audio on what is happening with severe weather. I was trying to follow election results and FIRST there was no info available under Election Results! It was the least informative on important election. SECOND it took a while to find what was available. Next, difficulty finding high school football scores. All I want is to know what they are and you seem to have difficult time providing that information.

3 months ago, Taken sides
I know this is an NBC station, but you are in South Mississippi and we don’t want to hear how great Biden is paying student loan debt every night on the news. You neglect to say that the taxpayers are paying it. It’s not coming out of his pocket. Plus, it helps the white student a whole lot more than it does the black if anything this is bias toward black students. I only watched this station to catch something local that might interest me but every time y’all get on something on a federal level, you take the left leaning side of it in a right leaning side state. Why is that. who are the editors of this stuff that they can’t tell the story from both points of you and not just a Democratic.

Amateur “reporters”
Almost all stories lack important details. For example vehicle accidents, the cause is almost always unknown. No witnesses are ever interviewed. If there is a shooting, the motive is never known! Once again, witnesses are rarely interviewed! Very poor reporting on crimes. They take very little video footage of all stories! Maybe 10 seconds worth, that will be shown repeatedly while the anchor talks. If there is an interview, it’s very, very short! Never over 30 seconds! They don’t pay their journalists enough, no motivation to take initiative, investigative journalism is almost nonexistent! They rarely stay employed at WDAM for 6 months or longer. I think most of them are interns paid minimum wage!

This was a great app but since the update it’s not better it’s hard to share things it’s hard to find new stories. I’ve noticed wdam is not sharing on Facebook since the update so I have to go looking for the news now

Last update
I’ve been using this app for a few years and loved it. Since the last update I can’t open it or use it. I’ve noticed it opened once when I have my location settings on. I’ve never had to have my location settings on until this last update. I do not regularly have my location settings on, please change this so I can view the news without having to turn and keep my location settings to on

Locking up and having to restart
After commercials the app locks up and you have to restart the news cast and scroll past the commercial to watch further. However it will happen again and I have to repeat the steps. Either you fix it or I will watch WWL in New Orleans and delete the wdam app.

This app has become non-functional on an iPhone since the latest re-invention. It won’t open 95% of the time. When it does, it’s hard to find what you want to read. I’m reading some reviewers saying it will open with location services on— I don’t care to have my phone broadcasting my location at all times. I like WDAM, but this app is awful.

Update is terrible.
I can’t watch or read anything without back to back ads. I understand you have to make money but dang y’all. I just want to read the news. Also it’s very clumsy and not easy to navigate...which doesn’t really matter if you can’t actually click on something without multiple ads. I give up.

Sports and updated layout
One thing I can say is missing is the Friday night area football scores from around the pine belt. The sports tab doesn't cover the games either. The layout of the page before the update to me, was a little better. But, still enjoy the news coverage

Too many ads
Too many ads!!!!!! Ads will pop up while you’re trying to read a story or watch a live coverage on severe weather. Have to watch the ad first before you can see a severe weather forecast

Problems all the time
Every time I try to watch the news broadcasts wether latest edition or live, it is locked up by an add about some stupid online game. You need to fix this problem so people can watch the news without being cut off in the middle.

Poor app
There are more ads than news coverage (some of which play back to back three to four times), and then it’s a toss up if you’re getting your local news coverage or one from another state!

Share My Opinion Instead
Why does this app demand access to shared location in order to access news? I will not be needing this app anymore. I, like many others, value our privacy far beyond the value of WDAM’s lackluster articles.

WDAM where are you?
Having to listen and view channel 12, thank goodness for their coverage. We sure need our Nick and WDAM weather. Conservative South Mississippi despises the View but we need our local TV

I used to be able to watch the latest live WDAM newscast but now I get random news. To make matters worse, I now can’t find the sunrise headlines anywhere. The app is now basically worthless to me.
