Hello, about 2 weeks ago I started having issues accessing the news app. Every time it comes up when I click on a news story, it is wanting me to choose selections for receiving Breaking News, Local News, Weather, etc. I cannot get past this setup. I have deleted and reinstalled the app hoping that would alleviate the problem but it didn’t. I tried calling but there does not appear to be a dedicated phone number for technical support. Any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Tracey, Dayton, OH
As described in other reviews, the interface isn’t nearly as slick and intuitive as it could be. But the big problem, in my view, is with push notifications. Just because you *can* send your users a news alert doesn’t mean you *should*. I appreciate the occasional alert related to a specific local traffic or weather event or to a significant breaking news story. But please don’t use push notifications to remind me to watch your impending newscast, or to tease some inane story, or to announce that Jeopardy is starting a half-hour early to accommodate special Olympics coverage. It’s obnoxious, and each extraneous alert brings me a little closer to deleting the app. Please exercise a little restraint.
Don't put more money in this. It can't be salvaged. Unorganized, can't find anything, just awful. Ch 7 isn't perfect, but they have the idea. They just let you scroll through news titles, and you can cover a lot of news fast. THATS the goal. Speed. Even your television station is losing viewership because of taking too long to deliver stories, and mindless interviews no one cares about. "5 on 2" is a ridiculous idea." Ch7 does one big thing wrong - they mix national stories into local stories and u don't realize you've clicked on Atlanta news til it's too late. Otherwise good app. Simplify, feed news fast, and people will return. Even B Davis takes too long.
I downloaded this app for weather notifications. I configured the in app settings for only weather notifications but I get notifications for everything. I checked and I double checked the notification settings over and over again to make sure the only setting that was turned on was for weather notifications but I still get notifications for everything. It is so annoying and frustrating to be alerted several times an hour about stuff that I didn’t intend to use this app for.
This ap is filled with cheesy and misleading ads for miracle cures, etc. Not what I want in a news ad. Also, audio automatically plays when you click on a news story—even when you turn your sound off. Volume must be on lowest level and sound off. Competing news channel app much better.
It's too busy and not as easy to find different departments. Also, in the weather section, I liked reading what the meteorologist had to say as they were informative about when the rain would arrive or when the cold front was coming through, etc. I found that to be helpful.
I have a iPad error. Every time I turn this on it says slide up and when I do it says weight and sometimes it never comes on he just wait need some work done on other times it stops for no reason sometimes it comes back on sometimes it doesn’t. It’s either the cable service or the app.
This was my number one go to for news. Now when I click a link, it automatically plays the video associated with the topic - so annoying. If I wanted to watch the video, I’d tune into your news cast. This is a great way to wake your kids from a nap, as it isn’t user friendly when you try to quickly pause it before it’s too late. Well, it’s always too late. Will be deleting because of this.
This app will play video at full volume even when you don’t select a video. You can’t read a news story without it automatically playing the video at full volume. Some people in the world would rather read than watch. Don’t force someone to watch crap they don’t want to watch. I deleted this app after having it for over 10 years. Ridiculous
Don’t waste your time if you don’t like being blasted with ads
This used to be me go to local news app in Dayton. At some point they introduced auto playing ads that come on at full volume, regardless if your phone is on silent or not. Automatic app delete, if that kind of garbage design is the approach being taken. I’m not anti-ads on a free app, but that kind of approach gets one star (and zero if I could).
Please stop sending an update every hour!! I receive up to 5-8 updates a day!! Sometimes more! They are no more informative than regular news. The actual info is fine, but low rating for all the time it takes to delete them in my mail. Now I’m deleting one more- the app!
Was a good app until you forced me to sign up for alerts and updates. I don't need another app letting me know weather and news updates. Should be my choice but that was taken away with the latest update. Only choice I had was to delete app and move on. You took away my choice as a consumer.
I don’t mind the app BUT I can’t stand how videos automatically start. It is super annoying when I’m trying to check out the weather forecast, for example, and the video starts blaring (especially when I’m trying to use the app inconspicuously).
WDTN is the channel I’ve watched for years, but if I watch it on the app, it skips and repeats way too often, or it just shuts down. My daughter heard it doing it and asked if it annoyed me. I told her yes. I’ve started watching WHIO on their app because their’s doesn’t do that.
You should have left a good thing alone. You also need to teach people how to proofread their articles and use spell check. It is horrible the misspelling of words and the in ability to construct a sentence.
Navigating on this app is a nightmare. Hard to dismiss ads and actually get to the stories. After all this work I’d love to get more than 1 or 2 sentences about the story. Using it less and less and relying on other sources.
TooTo political only one sided very far left all news people need to really rethink it and be fair people all you talk about was the opposite person running for president how wonderful they are well let’s see what a great job they can’t do
Nothing about this update is good. It doesn't work either. I've been a loyal 2News follower for many years but this "upgrade" coupled with the horrid spelling and grammar that 2News allows was the last straw.
