Hate new live stream
I hate the changes to the live streaming. Yesterday took a bit to get it working. Today won’t work at all. Please put it back to what it was or I will have to change which news live stream I watch.

New to the area and disappointed.
Good Morning, we just moved here from Lincoln County, NC and so disappointed in this app. When we first started looking in the area, I didn’t even think about the news networks as a critical part of the area I had in consideration, I should have. When opening your App. it should take you to the headlines of the day!? I don’t want or need to jump through hoops to find out what’s going on and WHERE this is happening, again, NEW TO THE AREA(!), I haven’t lived here all my life, I have driven around hundreds of miles so I’m adventuring out but GPS can only do so much for me. I rely on learning the area from news reports and READING about the area online. When I do watch the news, I have chosen WITN to be the channel I watch because I loved news channel 36 in Charlotte and was hoping you would be about the same. The folks on the TV are very personable, I feel like they are just reading a script, it’s very different and I don’t like it. I think I’ll try a different one for awhile, at least a different APP. to see if any are easier to navigate. Thank you for your time.

Tired of intrusive ads
Like many other reviewers have noted, this app has gone downhill. Ads are a large part of my frustration, I understand they’re part if what keeps the app afloat, but there has to be a line. If I click a notification of a news briefing, I should be taken directly to that briefing. I should not have to sit there while a full page ad plays until the timer ends, then have to search through all of the news stories to find the one that should have been directly linked. I could handle ads on the article page, but having to wait only to then have to find the story myself, ridiculous. The separate app for weather is also annoying, but I could get over it. The point of the app is to make it easier for people who aren’t able to watch the scheduled broadcasts, but it feels like the app is designed with a focus on being most beneficial towards their advertisers, not the people using the app.

Clunky and intrusive app
WITN is the slightly big fish is a very small pond in eastern NC television news, the best news station by default. But this app…ugh! Clunky and annoying. Video ads pop up when you try and check headlines and you have to completely close the app to shut them down. Cumbersome, amateurish. The app used to be mediocre. They redesigned it, making me yearn for the good old days of mediocrity. As bad as WNCT is as a news outlet, U I think I’m going to give their app a test drive just to be rid of the thing.

Issues I have with this app
I have several issues with this app. The first one being that WITN only uses Associated Press as their source their non-local news, which also includes their bias and opinions from AP. The ratio of non-local to local news seems way out of proportion. You could simply install the AP app instead for most of the content WITN provides here. My biggest gripe is the fact they have removed the ability to post/read comments within their app. Even though my IQ dropped a little each time when I could read them. However, it was always entertaining.

App not loading on Wi-Fi. Works fine on cellular data.
This issue started with the latest update last week. All other apps and internet usage is normal on Wi-Fi except this app. Both my iPad and iPhone are having this issue. All software is updated.

I understand the business model need for ads and ad revenue but to have a full page add play at full volume (often not even in English )when a user clicks on your app says 2 things: 1) you value whoever clicks on your app more as a potential revenue source than a member of the community who wants news And 2) you’re just wasting everyone’s time when you play an ad that isn’t even presented in a language the app user may or may not speak. Please stick to reporting the news using banner ads or embedded ads or allow the user to opt out of the full volume, full screen ads.

They don’t post church closings for weather
Apparently, I thought this was a decent app until I learned that they are not posting closings for the local religious organizations. If you are going to post closings for businesses, schools, and community organizations, you should also post closings for religious organizations when the weather is inclement. Yes, I am talking about churches and synagogues. I will be deleting the WITN app and using the WNCT app from now on. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

Where’s the weather?
This app used to be a one-stop shop for news and weather. It worked well because often I’d go to check weather and end up scanning news. Now there is no weather on the app. They want you to download a completely separate app just for weather. Sorry, not doing that. I’ll just use WNCT’s app that does both.

Very unstable
Constantly tweaking and retweaking this app leads to a very unstable and unusable app. Taking forever to load and then often get a white screen. Developer doesn’t know when to just leave well enough alone. Other local news apps for the area are better designed and more reliable. This app is total junk.

The full page ads are ridiculous
The full page ads that pop up in spanish with no x to be able to close out are ridiculous. This has been my favorite local news app but if I can’t get to it what’s the point?

Please go back to the previous format (but with correct spelling)
I don’t like the format WITN just changed to on June 19. I thought I was reading something on Facebook and it was difficult to read.

Why does your weather forecast contradict itself? The daily forecast on the app is different than the 8 day forecast and they are on the same page. How can you forecast a 20% rain chance for a given day and you simply scroll down to see a 80% chance on your 8 day forecast for the same day.

Stupid ads
I don't know what's going on but every time I go to your site I get an ad that I cannot get rid of. I want to see the news all I see is an ad. That makes me not want to visit your site and it certainly does not make me want to check out whatever's being advertised. I don't know what's going on but that needs to go away.

Local news
This is the worst news app. They do not update their information. Especially during difficult times. We have a crisis in the country right now (the corona virus) and they can’t even keep the facts updated. It is better to google corona virus update in NC because they can’t keep up to date.

Home Page Priority
Main page had direct links to headlines, weather, local, etc. That functionality is now gone. The headlines page is now jumbled with no clear order ( breaking, chronological, etc).

No local news…
Great idea for an app, but the news stories aren’t local at all, and aren’t any of our actual headlines. Just clickbait articles about places three hours away. And yes, I have my location enabled and settings correct.

No Weather in App
They expect you to download 2 different apps; one for the news and one for weather. That is perhaps one of the most asinine things I’ve ever seen! I’m sticking with WNCT.

What happened to the widget?
This is a good local news app, and I like the simple display of the weather. It had a good widget, too, but that has stopped working. Fix that, and this is a definite 4 and maybe a 5 star.
