WJCL is distinguishing itself from the other networks in the last couple years. The weather is spot on and you can find stories covered by WJCL that other local networks don’t touch. It’s a nice change.
I rated this so low because whenever you click on a story link, you get an advertisement video. Most of the time I don’t want a video at all, but prefer to read the articles and then if I want the video to click on it. When the video comes on immediately, you may have to stop it or terminate it right away as it can be loud or distracting to others . There is no real way to stop the auto advertisement so it will start immediately. I absolutely hate this and will not use this app because of this.
This used to be a great news app. Recently since the last upgrade some news stories won’t download and locks your screen up so you can’t go back to last page. You have to get out of the app completely and delete it in hopes of it rebooting. Download the app again and go back in and it still malfunctions. I have no problem with the WTOC or WSAV news app. They work fine. So until WJCL gets their app functioning properly I’ll be watching “The Other Guys” to keep me informed of the news and weather. Come on WJCL I know you can do better!
Take away the feature that tries to geolocate users- I use the app when I am out of the area to moniter news and weather back in the Savannah area - not to get info about where ever I may be at the moment of use.
I use an iPad and every day there are multiple pictures that do not have the story to match it. It’s maddening and is just sloppy website work. The content is good but has typos more often than it should, but not every day
Seems like every time I get a notification it’s a loud video ad and several photo ads before I see the news item. Weather alerts are usually too late to matter. Better off getting weather & emergency notifications from CEMA & news info from the STONE STAIRS OF DEATH on Facebook! Don’t get me started on the multitudes of grammatical and spelling errors!
I use the App to watch the local news. The station’s website is NOT CURRENT with the News Team personnel. There is one Reporter who has been there for over a year, and STILL is not listed on the website. The station needs someone to keep the site current.
The biggest disappointments you repeat & repeat & repeat same stories. With Hearst in ownership truth will never come out. They pretty much own newspapers, tv & news broadcasting. No competition means same old same old. That is why Americans no longer trust the news! Lies, lies, lies!
I liked the app in the beginning, about a year ago, but now I continually have trouble using it! I especially have difficulty accessing the interactive radar. I just downloaded WSAV to see if it’s more user friendly and accurate!
Since Savannah Morning News did something with their mobile app limiting what you can read, I now use your mobile app to keep up with highlights in Savannah. I live in Savannah only a few weeks a year and this site allows me to know a little about what is going on when I am my other home in Atlanta. Thank you for your great work.
