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
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!
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!!!
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 .....
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
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.
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. 👎👎👎👎👎
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
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!
...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.
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.
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.
