Not working properly
The weather widget isn’t working properly anymore. It’s been 54 degrees and sunny for like 3 months now. I like using WEAU for my weather rather than the iPhone weather app because it gives a more accurate prediction but now the widget isn’t working so I don’t use WEAU anymore. Bummer

If you like ads and crashes, this app is for you.
There are more ads then news. Now there are ads mixed in with the headlines and in every story. We'll I guess they figured more ads is more important then the news. As far as the articles, not only are they inaccurate the spelling mistakes are usually numerous. Haven't they learned about proof reading or using a spell checker at least. Terrible!

What’s the purpose of it???
I try to look at the weather report and it wants me to download another app, so why have this one. Then I’m trying to write this review and there is two ads planning over each other in the background. About as useless as their left wing politics! Deleting since it’s completely useless!!!

Was a good app now ... too many annoying pop ups
This was a good news app for my area... now I am not happy with it because when you open the app an ad pops up that you have to cancel before being able to read the news...... TV -13 my advice get rid of the pop up ads. I am using this app less now because it works like some of the cheap free games .....

Still a worthless app
Ok for local news but will lock on to certain locations for weather and not use current location. I vacationed in Oregon and all my weather still opens to Oregon forecasts and radar. Now you must watch full screen commercials before entering app. App just not worth it. They should take a lesson from local competitors app. Deleted for good

Lack of info
Recently the “feel like” temp and the wind direction hasn’t been showing up at all. No where else can you find out which way the wind is blowing on the app. Needs to be fixed as well as the pop up at the opening session of the app.

Another left leaning news agency
Looking for local news reporting, but get tired of the definite tilt to the left. Wouldn’t mind if reporting was more balanced, but it just isn’t.

Stopped working
Had an iPhone 8. This app ran fine on it for 2 years. Then it quit loading. Can get notifications but nothing else. App will not open. Same on my brand new iPhone 12 Pro. Did the usual uninstall reinstall. Still not working. 👎👎👎👎👎

To much fake news you added to the app.
Sick of your pop up fake news app. Switch to WQOW 18 news app. Which doesn’t have all those fake news pop up news advertising. Make that one Star I gave you a -10. So good by to you 13 news app, say Hello WQOW 18 news app. Tom Brulport

To many ads
Every video, news cast you want to see you have to watch an ad. Very annoying if they would actually fix this, less time watching ads more time watching news stories that you want to see I would rate the app much higher.

FYI, just so people know, and I hate to say this, but WEAU's website has been hosting malvertising ads, so until they change that, please avoid. This comes from our security expert at my IT company. Stay off the app and the website untill they change it!

Bait click...
I hate the fact that this app must rely on bait click ads to operate. I refuse to use it any longer. I will find some other way to get my local news.

Too many ads
Every time I open the app, I'm forced to watch the same 30 sec ad. Just go to the mobile site. Same layout, no ads.

It works, but ...
Edit: One star, after seeing through iOS 15’s privacy report just how many trackers this app was reporting to! The ads were annoying but the tracking has pushed me to delete it. Visit the web site in a private window (to avoid some tracking, though not all) instead. This is an improvement from just using the web site, but there’s more work to do. The weather link from the home page is nice, though it’s a bit disconcerting that tapping on the time/date icons brings up a modal dialog with more information. Oddly, however, the “local weather” link (vs. “current conditions” or the home page) just goes to the WEAU web site, and has a slightly different forecast than that shown in the home page link. The menu on the iPad (oddly, reached by clicking on three lines) is a mess — each entry is so large that you have to scroll through them, even though there are only 11 of them, and for 7 of the 11, you need to click twice (clicking on "Closings" results in a second menu with just "Closings" as a choice). This really needs a redesign; a standard iOS pop-over would be a far better way of doing it. The "Settings" button changes its function depending on the page you’re on, which isn’t obvious. (In the weather page, it brings up a location editor — which only accepts zip codes — but in a story page, it brings up settings.) (I'll be looking through the new version to see if these are improved!) The “Today’s events” screen shows only the first four events, and doesn’t allow them to be scrolled through — so you’ll miss a lot! The “Terms of Use” comes up in a tiny modal dialog, which makes them rather hard to read. (OK, not that anyone does.) So, better than the web site (except for “today’s events”), but hopefully it will be improved over time!

It works....
...especially for loading embedded ads. Usually three small ones per story. Stories are sometimes so brief they must be for ad revenue, then they are updated several times over a week or two, even though a beginning reporter would have gotten a reasonable amount of info the first time. On the good side, stories are more timely than on the television.

Updated App - Same Bad!
App crashes constantly. They brag about the "new" settings you can use for notifications, closings, etc. They even allow you to set by zip, city, etc. Unfortunately, none of it works!!! You can enter in a zip, for example, and it comes back empty and just sits there. Then it crashes. It's the same App WSAW in Wausau uses and it acts the same there, too. Very bad App. There are MANY local news apps to choose from. Why waster your time with this lame one? I'd give it a zero if it were allowed.

What happened
This app was recently updated. It doesn't feed news correctly as sometimes the news is the weather. The weather part of the app they took out the meteorologists written weather report which was quite valuable. Why??? Overall it is 2 stars.

Annoying unnecessary alerts
I have weather alerts enabled in the app but all other alerts disabled. Why do I keep getting unrelated, unimportant teasers for the 10:00 news? If it doesn't stop, I'm deleting this app.
