7 years ago, Love this Radar App
I am a news junkie and I want to know it all AS IT HAPPENS! WDSU is right on the ball. Also I am big into the weather hour by hour as I was a “Weather Watcher” for 12 yrs all volunteer, 365 days of the year. We had snow 6 mos out of the year and that is NOT easy to measure - blowing snow. Also at that time I did not have a thermometer that automatically recorded the low or the high of that day; therefore, I had to get up all night long to check the temps in our frozen tundra area to get the low for that night. And to think this was all volunteer. Now I am still a person who watches the weather, winds, dew points and esp humidity all throughout the day. I am right on top of things weather-wise as that is how I plan my day, according to the weather. Margaret is great!! Regarding the news, I need to know what is happening where, as well as when did it happen or when will it happen. And then I forward the info on to others from there. I’m most often the first to know about it, and then I share it around to appropriate people to make them aware. So WDSU, just keep it coming. Also I love the repeat versions available on my cell. THAT IS A MUST! I rarely am available to watch it at its normal air time. I have to be able to see it at a later time. By the way, I don’t have a tv at all, so I watch all your shows numerous times DAILY on my iPhone. MS. Joy New Orleans

Need more time with sports
I’m a dedicated WDSU viewer along with my friends but the sports daily news is weak and if It will not cover more swac mainly southern u I’ll start looking at wwl there are a lot of S U alumni in your viewing audience. Especially during football season we get much more NICHOLAs state and southeastern. SU is right down the road in BR. Again a little less weather and more sports.

This is got to be one of the most unreliable apps I’ve used to date it crashes so many times I have to watch a different channels, always seeming to happen during the weather but never the commercials sometimes I get to watch all the commercials and nothing other Leaving make sure the app was updated and the same thing happens When watching it on the TV from the my local app, it seems to work fairly well but not perfect it’s really sad that we’re having bad weather. They tell you to stay tuned with the app, but the app freezes up and crashes constantly. Come on WDSU a lot of people in the greater New Orleans area in Mississippi gulf coast. Use your app for important issues.

Stop the Harassment!!!
Is this app supposed to be used when “I” want too or when WDSU wants me too? This is the only app I have seen that STOPS sending you the news that you requested if you don’t open it enough. WOW!!! Whomever is in charge should realize that this app isn’t the only source of news for WDSU. Am I going to start getting alerts on my tv that I haven’t watched the channel enough? This definitely needs to be corrected. No one has time to open your alerts all day to make you or your quotas our priority. Thank God you guys aren’t the standard.

My go-to source for local news!
I’m an avid reader and I’m obsessed with the news. This source is just as important to me as the Associated Press...it’s my go-to source for local news, weather, and events. I can always expect the information to be current and reliable. Love it & the Lagniappe is that it’s naturally NOLA!!!

Video ads
Video ads immediately when you click on new report -even when you send a news report notification. I will stop looking at your news and delete the app of it continues. Ads are fine but not when I can’t choose to not watch when I want to see what the report is. I will use other news outlets as Your news is not all that breaking when I get the same notification from others.

I really enjoy this app. It gives me updates periodically on everything that happens. You can’t ask for better news while constantly on the go. I would recommend everyone to download this app. and take it on the go wherever you go.

We always watch WDSU ! Even try to catch you guys in our camper whenever possible ! I love the idea that I can know what is happening as it is happening even if not at home to watch it on tv Please don’t make changes too often so that I always feel at home with your app! I like the reporters and have been watching WDSU since it first came on TV. We had the first TV in the block where I grew up and everybody would watch what few shoes where on. I remember the logo of the French quarter patio. The only change I would make is the music on the show. It is s little dated !!!

I gave a 3star rating because the app is great other than one issue. it would have gotten a 5star rating if not for the issue of when I get an ALERT for breaking news or update on major stories I swipe to open it, and it takes me to the general home screen of the app and the actual breaking news article or update is no where to be found.

Ads in middle of article
Need to stop putting advertisements in the middle of an article but at the end. If you are not doing this then whoever handling your app. Even you close advertisement could read missing information.

Probably no longer Channel 6, but WDSU has been a New Orleans station forever, and I appreciate being in the know. A great app, even better if you don’t watch the news, and it gives updates in real time!

Go-to spot for news
Before I retired I would watch WDSU every morning as I got ready for work. Now I like the app so I can focus on whatever is important to me at any given time. I keep track of COVID info now to keep safe.

Way too many notifications
They notify you about every little thing. Even when I went to change which ones I get, so that it would only be important information which I actually want. But apparently they think everything is important and constantly send notifications to your phone even at 11pm at night. Hope you don’t like to sleep!

I hate how y’all tie up programs all day to day same thing over and over can’t you just break in once hr or run tape it is very annoying the sad part is when the storm finally gets here no electricity so we can’t know what is going on ya lol spend hrs speculating and show no programs and why do y’all always use the 1ocock slot to Take the soap off people that what it lose a day I don’t think People who watch a game or talk show needs to keep on a daily basis

No stars
There is something wrong with the app and web site I try to play the news and neither of them will play it. I tried deleting and re-downloading the app and exiting the web site and they still don’t work. This seems to be an ongoing problem with trying to watch the news. It maybe time to change networks or something.

Interactive radar
I used to depend on your interactive radar for many years. However since you updated it to 6 hours of weather radar I’ve switched to a different app. It just takes way too long to load. It was better at 3 hours. I really don’t need to see rain which happened 6 hours ago.

Good App
The best thing about the App it’s very efficient with it’s alerts! Keeps you up to date on what’s happening! My rating comes within the App. More times than not you start reading a story and it’s incomplete; there is no where to hit a “continue” to finish reading the story!

Need to improve!
Alerts don’t link to topic but to main news page. Site full of bizarre behavior news, sometimes staying on main page for days and weeks. Lackk of local news of the day, political, events, special interest. Too much fluff, little substance. Remember: who? What? When? Where? Why or how?

Terrible functionality
For the Nowcast: They make you listen to ads every time you open the news so you miss part of the news The news will not continue to play if you get an email or notification. You have to start over and listen to the opening ads again. You cannot do anything else on your phone or tablet while the news plays. When clicking to read a story you MUST listen to the video. There is also no place on the video to silence the video. So no checking a story at work. It’s terrible to use to try to check or to watch the news.

Please get rid of the yellow couch chit chat! So unprofessional sounding. Nothing but silly cackling. The reporters go from professional talking to high pitched laughter. And the bright yellow doesn’t help at all. I just cringe when it happens and in early morning. However anytime during the day wouldn't be any better. Catherine L.

Prefer WDSU Weather App
I much prefer using the WDSU weather app. This news and weather app isn’t nearly as precise or user friendly. Fine for a news source. Will be finding a new fav weather app.

I enjoy this app, but find there are too many ads floating throughout the app. I would gladly shell out some duckets for a smooth ad free app.

No way to silence adverts
Every time an alert comes across I go to read the story I have to listen to 15 second ad. Many websites have ads when you enter them, but they all have a mute button so I can open it in a public place without bothering everyone around me. Uninstalling and will use NOLA. Com instead
