Why do you have to sound that siren when you issue a weather statement? It's confusing and alarming. I see nothing in my settings that allow me to turn it off. And if I was able to turn it off, will l lose the ability of getting the siren if there really is a tornado spotted? Thank you
I gave this app a 1 star simply because I can occasionally start an article without having to re-open the app.. otherwise, it shows a definite lack of consideration for the client reader, but full concern for the advertising client that gets their ad re-seen every re-opening...?! Disregard the client readers that refuse to read further due to such persistent stress!! They’ll grow a disdain for the advertising abuse and boycott the advertisers and also the broadcast provider of abusive ads.... Good Day without irrational, repetitive, mind hiccuping commercials.. why not show the articles without ads and have a section entirely devoted to ads that the viewer may search through by choice for interesting and creative ads for genuine interests or entertainment but Leave the Reader an Undisturbed Reading without breaking the chain of thought and interest..
Getting past the first ad doesn’t always happen. I sometimes have to re-open he app 2-3 times before it will stay open. It will frequently flash open then close again. I’ve also noticed since the update that the text in the articles overlaps the ads within the article making it very hard to read. Grammar and spelling is also a little choppy at times. I really do understand the need to get the information out fast, but spell check only takes a few extra seconds. Also, things are not “involved” in flames, they are “engulfed”.
iPhone 6 Plus model MG9C2LL/A iOS 12.5.7 downloads current version 4.0.10 which launches to a blank white screen that disappears, but stays launched on white screen in the all open apps view, and must be force quit. Older versions worked, can’t get any version that works now. iPad model MD516LL with iOS 10.3.4 and WIBW app v.3.2.6 works perfectly BUT App Store offers update v. 3.4.16 and when "Update" is pressed it says "Update is not compatible" and refuses to update. Since v.3.2.6 is working, don't want to delete because afraid new downloaded version won't work. NO WAY TO CLEAR WIBW FROM UPDATES! Notification always on!
Miss having the weather alert texts. Was sad to see you get rid of that. On the app would like to be able to get more county options for weather alerts instead of just 5. I am a paranoid person when it comes to storms so I like to see what's going on around me. Before you took the alerts away I was able to get alerts for more counties with it. I am signed up to get weather alerts now from the app and I get nothing. Bring back the text alerts!
This app works really well and I like the setup of it. However there are many times when I can't even get it to open because it immediately crashes when I click on it. I've never found a pattern for when that will happen, but it is rather annoying
I use to love the app, but recently the app will only load the adds and nothing else will show. When you close the app and go back into it, the problem still isn’t resolved. I had the app set up to send me notifications and when I click on the notification to see the full article the app will pop up then close out. I unfortunately had to switch to the KSNT app.
I use it frequently to see what’s going on in the local area. No major complaints. Only recommendation would be to get rid of the advertisement that pops up when opening the app. The picture of that man and woman is annoying!
I kept getting an error message every time I tried to open from an alert. I deleted the app and downloaded fresh, but now it won’t open at all. I’m hoping this is just a network error and not still an app problem. It used to work great and I really liked it, but I haven’t been able to access WIBW for weeks now. I am on an iPhone 6SPlus iOS 12.3.1.
WIBW apparently does not vet their advertising content which takes up 2/3 of the screen and the “related links” at the end of articles. It’s a never ending stream of wellness scams, fake news, advertorial content all pretending to be news from WIBW, and in the process destroying what little credibility they had to begin with.
The initial full screen advertisement is obtrusive and forces you to close it to see anything. More ads on every page. I realize local news sources need revenue but maybe I despise having to have this app just to get weather. If there is a severe storm, I quickly want to access the weather page but your ads get in the way.
The most recent update takes way too long to load the most important tile in the app — the News link. The latest iPhone 13 delays almost 8 seconds between tapping the button and responding. Ridiculous.
The ads are a little much. It seems that most of the ads are spam ads, "new rule for drivers in Kansas!" Give me a break. Can we at least get real ads! The videos rarely load properly. And they all come with an advertisement video before they play. Get better, WIBW!
Two things Do not like having to close out the advertisement before I can see the news alert. Very frustrating. Next All posted images cannot be expanded for s closer look at the original pic. When you post a wanted pic for help. It's not helpful if we cannot make the pic larger.
Not sure what has happened but the app won’t open. Uninstalled and reinstalled…no luck. I get “breaking news alerts” but can’t get to them to read them. I have to go to KSNT or CJONLINE….I would love for your app to work again.
Ever since the last update, the app crashes every time I open it. I have tried to delete and redownload. Please fix, this is so annoying and frustrating. As a local citizen, I want and deserve easy access to the news.
Grammar and spelling aside, I have been toying with my alert settings so that when I hear the "breaking news" alert, I actually have an option to read the alert. Normally, it disappears when I pick up my phone and nothing new appears in the app for hours. 😳 Have the Russians attacked the city? Or what?
Misuse of “there”, “their”, “they’re” Misuse of “to”, “too”, “two” Misuse of “your”, “You’re” Ending sentences in prepositions Dangling participles Run on sentences Many other errors, but these are the glaring errors! Please, if you’re a college educated journalist you should write grammatical sentences, as well as spell words correctly!
I got a new phone and got all my stuff moved to my iPhone 6. There were several apps grayed out as they were updating. The WIBW app new updated. I deleted the app from my phone but it doesn't give me the opportunity to GET it. It has the circle that you press to update but if you press it, it grays out and nothing happens. I have rebooted my phone twice. I don't know what else to do to get your app. HELP.
About half the time at least the app will never open past the WIBW blue screen! I get alerts and then try to read them in the app but the app will never open! Usually I end up on Facebook looking for the story that the alert was talking about! Frustrating! 😡 and now they plan to not use text messages to give weather forecast so I'm going to have to find another app for this since this app won't open consistently! I feel like this has always been the way this app works and that there should have been some sort of fix by now!
I would give it five but since the last update I can't get into the app. It keeps crashing everytime I try to open it! Other than that before I got the update it worked just fine and I could catch up on what was happening or what the weather was gonna be for tomorrow or the day after. Now I can't use the app at all. PLEASE FIX!!
I have enjoyed having this app. It's great receiving the weather updates and alerts so I know what's happening plus prepare for. I may not have the trending news set up but I'm able to keep up with the news having this app. Thank you for keeping it updated.
I do NOT like the upgrade. They ruined a perfectly good news app. The weather portion is awful!! The weather alerts are now on the app and no longer sent as a loud text message that would wake you up and alert you at night. The radar is tiny , the closings section is not enabled and can not be set. The entire feature is not good !! Very tempted to delete the WIBW app and get my weather with the weather channel and on Facebook . Very disappointed ! On a scale of 0-10, I rate this at a 1!
The radar part is cool, but there is a major flaw with the TV Listings part. The little arrows don't drag down, but you are able to tap in the boxes and change the date and time. However, when you hit go, it looks like it's changing but it just reloads the current listings. It's frustrating.
I like the content this app provides, but it crashes every other time I open it. Navigation is a pain, none of the screens have a "back" button, so you have to click "Home" to get to another screen. Several of the Weather links go to the same screen.
Been trying to open the app for two days now. I go to click on a story and the app shuts down. Happens to my husband on his phone too. We both have 5c. Quit changing the format. Stories and pictures are too big. Takes forever to scroll through them. Also, headline picture doesn't match up with the story photo most of the time.
