I have this app on my iPhone and it’s flawless!! Love and depend on it!! I was so glad to find this app for my tv streaming, unfortunately, it doesn’t work as well. I live in Wilmington NC so I really need to be able to stream my local news and weather in the mornings. Not giving up on y’all you are an excellent news & weather station.
I’m from Wallace ... but have you ever noticed that Duplin county is rarely included in any news, weather, maps, etc? WECT focuses on New Hanover, Pender, Columbus, Brunswick & Bladen counties. Wallace is a 35 mile drive into Wilmington. It would be nice to know we folks here in Duplin were recognized as valuable viewers as channel 6 news and weather are watched most prolifically in the Wallace area, and not to mention most of us in south Duplin shop in New Hanover county - ALWAYS have. I’ve always felt I was a part of the greater Wilmington area but feel we are not considered a part of you guys. How about taking notice of us? As a matter of fact, New Bern, Little Washington and Greenville leave us out too, but these areas are not as close as Wilmington ... New Bern does end its weather map at Kenansville but still get little reference to us - WECT does not show us on your map. Ha! Not funny!
Everything was fine for years then this new version was released. Nothing but forced advertising before you can read a news story. The advertising is usually videos that you must watch before you can read a news story. Also, when you get a breaking news notification it no longer takes you directly to the breaking news story in the app. Rather, it lands you on the home screen then you must figure out which menus to drill down to get the news story. This new version has absolutely ruined the user experience to the point that it is just unusable. Complete garbage. I now solely use the WWAY app for my local news.
I read the WECT news app every day to stay apprised of happenings in the Wilmington area. However, it seems the web site is not updated in a timely fashion and does not keep abreast of news updates. I find myself reading the same news on your web site that I read the previous day. I would suggest that more timely updates be applied to your web site to stay current with activities in the Wilmington area. Thank you.
1) When I mirror to my Apple TV, the app isn’t set up to keep your phone from sleeping, so you have to touch the screen every now and then to keep it from crashing. 2) The stream sometimes gets stuck in a loop of about 10 minutes of news 3) The ads sometimes have no sound or half sound (no voices in ads), which I guess I don’t mind 4) Been showing as “off air” during live broadcast times lately
I love y’all thank y’all for all update , acutely delivering the news to us soon as u get it. That’s so much appreciated, and u have all my support don’t really have anything bad to say at all !!!! Y’all the best keep up the good work , and be safe out there !!!!
I find the new layout to be a jumble of huge and small pictures, different layouts popping up during the same viewing session, articles out of order i.e. latest news toward the bottom as you scroll. Like reading a newspaper that's come apart in the wind!
Installed mainly for the picture uploading, but you have to register, which I did, got confirmation that I was registered. But it won’t let me sign in. Uninstalled. UPDATE- Gave it another shot, tried to reset password. It sent the reset link in the email, but that didn’t take me anywhere that I could change it. When I clicked on the contact us link, it errored out saying the app could t send emails. This app is garbage.
When I get a notification on the app (Apple) I tap on the app, which then goes to the main screen. Then then there is nowhere there to go to read the notifications. When I finally figure where to go then there are no notifications listed.
I don’t like the updated app look. I liked the look and navigation of the previous version better, jumping right into your news stories. The new version is clunky and takes too long to navigate where you need to get.
Look forward to my Star News everyday — for 23 years! Great coverage of local events & news. Dedicated staff & excellent customer service. Lucky to have this fine team in our community. I love newspapers! Also subscribe to The New York Times & rely on Wall Street Journal, too.
So the app has been great until the latest redesign of it. App has tendency to fail to load/open and just spins. Have to close and reopen which is a pain. No clear way to contact support to report this issue to get fixed.
WECT6 is contributing to the destruction of our country. My household stands on Christian beliefs and I find it heartbreaking so many people are lost, and WECT6 is endorsing the lost. I hope our paths cross because I will give you some Great News, some TRUTH, but as for WECT6, my household will not be listening to their fake news. We are deleting all apps and will not be tuning in!
It keeps crashing and I can’t open this app at all. Need a new update fast. Plus the ads are annoying. If you are putting out a alert. It shouldn't take me an ad then I have to search for the alert. The old version was fine and never had a problem.
I have been using this app for years. Although it does have a few improvements, it continues to ask me to allow Bluetooth connections. I understand that it should ask initially, but every time I open the app is excessive.
New Update crashes before even opening.. have reinstalled cut phone on and off. However not shocked it’s a microcosm of WECT.. they can’t even report the news correctly 75% of time why would you think they would get this right.
The new update is terrible. Crashes often, hangs up. When it does work too many ads. I was tired of the click bait on the previous version, this is worse. Sorry WECT but it’s WWAY for me. I’m deleting the app.
Looked at the old app dozens of times a day. Mew app is clunky and waaaaaay too many ads blocking stories. Just downloaded and subscribed to Port City Daily to see if it’s better. They seem to have a nice user friendly app.
I tried to update this app because I was getting old news but it didn’t give me the option. Where I would tap to update, it was just spinning. So I uninstalled the app and tried to install and it still showed it spinning.
This station is full of fake and racist news they report what they want you to believe. It’s always one sided stories. One of the most liberal stations I have ever seen. Idk what happened but it’s just plain sad.
This APP has accessed my data 120 times while I was sleeping!. It’s constantly crashing and sluggish loading!. It used to be the go to APP for weather but since Hurricane Florence the APP BLOWS WORSE THAN THE HURRICANE DID!.
WECT has failed the public in reporting fair and unbiased news. Unfortunately, they have become part of the fake news movement with a leftist agenda. Fortunately, most of us are smart enough to recognize it!
