Best News App for N. AL/SM TN
This is absolutely the best NEWS APP for coverage of North Alabama and Southern Middle Tennessee news. The local news setting for my city and county are spot on and they cover all important news with no bells and whistles which I like. I don’t have to do a lot of searching and they include you to be able to report news straight from the app and report corrections if you find one. I rarely do and it’s only simple typos to help get those corrected. They make you feel like you’re part of their news team. 5,000 stars!

County road 17 in Jackson County.
I heard the road had dropped 18 inches. News coverage only shows 231 cracked road. Please update news footage to cover 17. Residents on the mountain have to travel about seven miles further to get off mountain. Wondering where we are

The app released Feb 19,2021 is very poorly designed. It is designed for those that can “watch” the news while they are at work, not those of use that may need to catch a “quick read” of a breaking new item. Very disappointed. There are less articles of interest that before. Maybe you should have considered updating your news articles more often than once a week instead of revamping in app to something so unappealing. It has no design flair very basic like something a 6 year old might do.

Hate the ads
I had no problems with this app until recently. When I open an article, I am often automatically redirected to a sponsor’s website, usually State Farm.

App locks up when there’s an update
I do not take kindly to apps that force me to update them NOW when I typically do not have time and am trying to access information. It’s a fine app but it should not be forcing me to update it with no option to delay until later.

Alerts never connect into story
Every time I get a pop-up notification from this source and click on it, it immediately goes through a pop-up advertisement which I dismiss, and then I can’t ever find the breaking news story that made me come to the site to start with!

Bad local news app
Sorry but in using your news app, I was unable to navigate without an ad pop up every page that I went to. Over 45% of each page was some sort of an ad so I am deleting your app. Nothing news worthy to see on this app.

Notifications are clickbait
This was a fantastic app until the notifications turned to clickbait. Would prefer to be notify with the news lead, not “click to find out where it happened”.

I find the redesigned app to be more confusing with all the ads. No way to go back easily if you tapped one. Slow loading on live stream. To many redirects to your webpage. Not happy with it. 😐

SPAM notifications
WHNT app sends out notifications for sponsored content like IHOP. I only want notifications for LOCAL NEWS. The only notifications I allowed in the app we're breaking news and weather, IHOP adverts are neither!

One of the two best in Huntsville
This app seems to look a little better on a tablet (ipad) then on a phone, as the designs features work better on a bigger screen, but the news is always solid. Huntsville is blessed with two great news apps - this and WAYY using the ever popular doapp interface. WAFF comes in a distant third using to much national news and content that is the same with other Raycom owned Alabama stations (WBRC, WSFA)

Needs work
19 news is my primary local tv news source of choice. They are often directing viewers to their app for additional info. Often, I don't find what they are noting on the app, or it takes too long. Then if I do find it, and want to share it by "text", usually the "save" button in the upper right corner is blocking me from being able to select the icon. Yes, there are generally other options within the article for sharing. I typically share via text, or email. These other options don't help in that regard. Though one is email, it is an imbedded email service, whereas you have to type in your info, which presumably goes into a database, which I am not desiring to add my email address to. Basically it does not send you to phone email app with the link. If it were to do that, it would also, at least provide me the option to copy link and paste to text, but it doesn't!

Good If You're In Their Coverage Area
It's difficult to rate this app, because it's really going to depend on if you're are in WHNT's broadcast area. If you aren't, this isn't going to be of any interest whatsoever to you. If you are, it's pretty much the best and only option to get North Alabama news through an iPhone app. It delivers a number of local headlines to you in a manner much more effecient than going to WHNT's iPhone compatible site. However, the navigation is pretty rough and not all news stories make it's way from their site to this app. Also, it'd be nice to be able to view video news stories from this app. It needs a lot of work, but it's a great start. If you live in North Alabama, it's a great download. If not, it's not really worth your time.

Good to see an app for my area
So many apps are geared toward large cities in other parts of the country. It's good to see one that is right in my backyard. When bad weather rolls in, especially, my satellite signal tends to go down. Hopefully this app will help me get current weather info when that happens. I also get most of my news online, so it's great to get some local news while I'm at it. I would have given this 5 stars if it played video clips or gave real-time audio of the broadcast. Maybe the next version?

This news app is AWESOME!
I have used the CNN app for a few months, then my son showed me this local news app. I love it! Breaking news seems to come through WHNT app before CNN. I love that you can drill down for even more localized news reports. I have had some issues with audio on some videos... but I'm sure it will be fixed. But if you want an app for news... especially north Alabama news, this is WONDERFUL! I don't write many reviews at all, but this one is definitely worth a moment to mention to others. Way to go WHNT!!!! impressive development with this app!

I Hate This Revision
I have been using this app as my primary news source for the last two years. This latest revision is awful. It requires too much scrolling just to see the stories and ads pop up in the browser for seemingly no reason requiring you to close the browser and go back to the news app. Please bring back the grid that shows all the top stories on one page with a short synopsis and fix the pop up problem. Better yet go back to the previous version. It was way better than this one.

Pros: local news, sports, and weather without having to open a browser and navigate unoptimized web pages. Numerous weather views. Cons: most news stories listed aren't even local, but rather national AP stories. No pictures or video. Feeds only updated a few times a day. No animated radar. No ability to zoom or change overlays on weather maps. No keys for maps. Unclear when weather data was even last updated. Good to see them trying...I guess. And it IS free, but my suggestion is to subcribe to the various local RSS feeds in your reader of choice and download the weather app of your choice. Or use Weather Underground's iPhone optimized website. I KNOW Huntsville has enough out of work computer science folks to do better than THIS!

Crashes a lot
I prefer to receive my news from WHNT, but sometimes the app is quite frustrating. Many times I find a story that indicates a video is included, but have to search for the video from an alternate source due to absence of play feature on this app. Recently, I find that in the middle of reading a story, the app crashes to my home screen. I hope there is an update in the works.

Almost worthless
I previously reviewed that this app was worthless. Well, not it is almost worthless. By that I mean, sometimes I can actually read one story or two before it crashes. After repeated openings and crashes, one is able to read the stories. Finally, the app is great in portrait view (when it works) but does not allow switching to landscape view. Guess only made for iPhone - not iPad. Please fix.

Don't like update
Been using WHNT app for yrs. Unfortunately don't like the latest update (or being forced to update it). This version not as user friendly or streamlined. I get that it "looks" cleaner, with the category folders, but it seems cumbersome to go through the folders to find interesting stories. The weather section is not user friendly at a glance.
