On top of current happenings as it occurs first to report on latest events. Real time up to date reporting. On point with the upcoming weather so my family can know how to prepare to dress. I love news when it happens alerts I review news alerts on my app. True and dependable news that is news breaking events keeping me informed. WIS is part of my daily routine
I previously only used WIS 10 app for my news because I disliked the format for other local stations. Since this update, I’ve deleted the app and have no plans to get it again while it’s in the current state. The data that it requires is tremendous and I’m guessing it’s due to all the videos. If I wanted to watch news, I’d do it on a TV. I prefer to read the news and only watch specific stories. Plus, due to the size requirements, I had to delete other apps that I used. I’m. It trying to be rude, but whomever created and approved the new look must not be a user of the app because if they are, they would see how horrible it’s become.
WIS provides very up to the minute and informative news . All hours of the day , everyday . Especially breaking news stories on current events be it local , national or international news . I truly appreciate being kept well informed .
Finally deleted the app since news isn’t updated except for every 3 days or so. I’m beginning to believe that journalism is dead. Very poorly written, grammatical structure is often wrong and obviously no editing takes place. I have now learned that my expectations are too high with journalist and politicians. We shouldn’t expect much since most of the people in these positions, especially the politicians, were educated in a state that ranks 48th, in a good year, in education.
I don’t like the updated app. The same news is on the app for several days. Also the sports isn’t updated in a timely fashion. Ie: When Carolina’s baseball team was playing their first game with Virginia you were unable to get the score until the next day . Also the live news is always coming from another state. Please get back to the Wis I’m always been happy to call my station.
The news reported by WIS and any other network needs to be unbiased. It clearly is not. In case you are unaware, not all viewers are Democrats. Enough of the Trump bashing and innuendos. The US President should be given some respect. I certainly did not agree with Obama’s policies and agendas but he was still President and deserved proper respect. BYW...this has absolutely nothing to do with race, so do not think for a moment this is some racist rant.
Besides being OBSESSED with the weather - ALL THE TIME - more piddly news from outside the state of South Carolina. A lot of the stories are also written WITHOUT any proofreading by a responsible adult. I have a college degree from “Old School” days when typewriters were the norm; I can proofread a lot better than whomever is NOT doing it for WIS. Newsworthy items are also being missed or purposely overlooked - like Clemson’s BIG WIN over Notre Dame, 30-27.
I don’t particularly like the new app. Another thing is the app is not updated often enough. You have stories on the app are days and days old, some are weeks old. New stories should be added immediately.
The updated app requires opening several pages before the news can be accessed. First page is an ad, second page gives a choice between WIS and another app, third page select WIS app, four page select news. Just terrible, the old app was perfect
All Gray stations: each affiliate’s app continually annoys me with messages that my location isn’t current as Gray attempts to mine location data from MY phone. These incessant reminders try my patience and are driving me to leave Gray!!!
WIS news app used be great and I could get everything I wanted from this app. However, when you now require Location Services to be on to work, that’s an invasion of privacy. If they change that requirement, I will use it. Otherwise, this is a quick uninstall for me.
You used to show the item that prompted the notice to show when we looked at the screen. Now you have nothing but an ad and numerous stories, none of which are marked or identified as the news flash prompting the alert! This app in its current format is trash. J Walker Hough
I got this app hoping to be caught up on this sickness going around in Wisconsin since I dont have Facebook. I see more info about every other state than I do about Wisconsin, to be honest I don’t even know if I saw an article that had anything to do with Wisconsin. This is a United States news app, not a Wisconsin news app.
I hate this app. It is broken down into all of these different sections and when I read the community section, the articles have hardly any information on the article topic. I will not use this. I can use my ABC and WLTX for local news.
The old version of the app was more usable and easily navigated. This new version fails to spark interest in the news articles. How could you possibly make the news any more boring? This new app update...that’s how
I love WIS but this new app makes me want to get another channels app because all the stories headlines that you click have a white background which makes it difficult to differentiate stories... pleaseeeeee change it, it’s unreadable!! Thanks! :)
The new method in which the news is INITIALLY shown is NOT user friendly
The former FIRST page listing the brief description of a news item was much more enjoyable. CHANGING the “presentation “ simply to “ have a new look” is not always a good thing. You need to remember that your largest readership are individuals over the age of 50. Obviously the people who made this change are the under 30 crowd. NOTE : the under 30 crowd must pay much better attention to the age of majority of your readership.
- Said no one. Ever. I’m ok with the banners and such. Gotta pay the bills, right? But the ads in the new update are BIG and in the middle of the newsfeed like they’re going to have a headline. Not ok.
WIS is the worst news App I’ve ever seen. It consistently is behind on new news stories and keeps old news on the App for days. It’s a complete waste of time to get any valuable information in a timely manner.
This was a practical and helpful app. Then it was “updated “ to a hot garbage app! Glad there are other TV news apps that work well. Shame on the former market leader WIS for not correcting this over the last 6 weeks
BEWARE! The app now launches full-screen overlay VIDEO ADS with SOUND!!! Good luck finding the speaker icon quickly. Its location changes or it blends in so that you can’t swiftly silence it. There’s nowhere in the settings to disable sound for the pop ups. BEWARE!
