I want to thank each member of the weather team for the continued and up to date coverage of all the bad weather!! Shame on anyone that would make light of their dedication and excellent weather coverage! I feel sure their broadcast possibly saved someone’s life! Can you say that about the stupid sitcom you may be missing!
It seems that just as soon as someone gets an app that works perfectly in every way, someone somewhere sitting around a board room meeting table decides that since its too perfect to be improved, they will just start from scratch and mess it all up again. Did you give these guys a monthly technology budget just to sit around and think of ways to make things worse? So heres what you are going to need to do: either 1 - delete the technology budget so that there wont be a team to pay that wants to just screw things up and make everything more complicated. Or 2 - fire the team now, bring in some new people to replace the app and get it back to like it was. Because at this point, you are losing veiwers and followers because of this app’s jibberish. So, like, fix it. Please dear god fix it.
First, a breaking news story notification pops up. It sounds really serious or interesting, something you definitely need to read. You click to read the story, then it either takes you to a different news story or says it’s unavailable. Then guess what? The notification is no longer there, so you have to read thru all the app news stories to find it. Sometimes it takes 5-10 minutes for the app to show the story. Why is the app wasting people’s time if we can’t read the story?
I enjoy WLBT & the reporters, journalist, etc.. that are involved with the this news station. However this app stinks. It barely functions. Anytime you try to watch a video and turn your phone to maximize the picture on your screen, the video stops & the app freezes. This has happened for years, across two different phones. This non-functioning video issue occurs on the newest iPhone 11 Pro. So, it’s not the phone. Another issue I have is with the glaring volume difference between the, UNAVOIDABLE & blaring ADVERTISEMENTS that this app bombards the user with & the usually low volume of the actual news video the user wanted to see. Please fix these issues!!!
Wlbt have some of the finest journalists that report their news with accuracy and with dignity, compassion for their viewers! The people that cares about how they deliver their findings of what’s taken place across the cities, county, and what’s happening overall in our community and country! Maggie Wade, Howard Ballou and Walt Grayson are the best. When it comes to weather we have some of the finest meteorologists! Ted Fortenberry is one cool composed guy!
It is fantastic to hear that there has been an arrest in this shooting being a black man myself I will strongly admit that these young black men are terrorizing our city. They are out of control and something needs to be done to put a stop to this.
I despise the latest updated version of this app. The Homepage and News have the same content. The previous app offered easier navigation and more news, I loved it. This app is limited to just local from what I tried to look through. What happened to Entertainment, Strange News even Trending. Apps are supposed to be easy to navigate and find out information, this one isn’t at all. Inevitably I deleted this app because if I can’t find what I’m looking for I don’t need it taking up storage space on my phone.
If you are going to mention a person’s name in an article (halfway through) would you please tell us who they are and what their position is. This particular article is about voting at Eudora Welty library and A/C problem. You mention someone halfway through named”Perry”. Tell us who he is! You guys do this frequently. And the words accompanied and accomplished are not interchangeable. Professionalism matters
WLBT a wonderful station to watch anywhere anytime Channel 3 been apart of my family for a decades enjoying the news yet miss Paul Williams but they are my favorite stations too keep me update from local ,weather, and sports updates
Aside from the grammatical errors contained in the body of a regular portion of the news stories, combined with the BOMBARDMENT of pointless ads, I suppose this is the best we simple Mississippi folks should expect to receive. I truly feel sympathy for the older generation of Mississippians who have to endure these ads, which not only serve them with little interest, but are manufactured to open when the user attempts to close said ad. Can you imagine the growing number of third party of mindless game tabs open on ole grandpa’s phone that we got for him last Christmas? All he wanted to do was look at the local forecast. Instead he’s forced to endure ad after ad of “Candy Stacker 5000”, or whatever other nonsense you allow to advertise on your site. Please do better. This is unacceptable.
The newest version of this app is horrible. I do not know how this design was allowed to make it out, but it is not user friendly in any way. Everything is unresponsive in it. Want to read a story? Forget it, nothing happens when you try to. Furthermore, you just had a redesign not too long ago, why are we having yet another one? My advice, stay away from this version of the app. It is useless as it is now. It only serves to eat up space on your device.
This new version is absolutely horrible! In the article y’all ask if we want to get updated news, we’ll I’ve updated the app and it’s way worse than the previous version. You constantly get alerts on various breaking news stories but they never appear on the app. Today is Thursday and on my app I’m still showing Tropical Storm Gordon as my top story. Can y’all please get the app updated as advertised or I will be forced to get my news elsewhere. Thank you.
Now you have an ad from “Vix.” Something completely in Spanish. It Takes the whole screen and has no way to exit. Anywhere you click takes you to their website. If you can’t afford to keep your website up without crappy ads, let it go. It isn’t like you are keeping it updated anyway.
It used to be nice and you could flip from story to story. Now you can’t and they never update the stories. I’m reading stuff from this weekend and nothing new, maybe an article or two but last updated story says 12 hours ago. Need to work on staying on top of the game.
I give WLBT 5 ⭐️s they get to the point right away. And what ever they don’t know or question they investigate. The reporters and Anchors make me feel like I’ve known them forever. ❤️❤️me some WLBT❤️❤️
App used to be okay, but it no longer opens to the article you select. When you get an article notification and click on it, it opens to the app but not the article. Pretty useless. Last couple of updates haven’t fixed, so I’m deleting.
I personally do not like the new updated news app. The old app was not as confusing and you had more news options to chose from ex: Entertainment and Strange news. I am having to go to another local news app just to get the news I use to could get on this app.
This app is a perfect example of ruining an easy to navigate and read app. It’s disconcerting to have to figure out what is news and what is an ad. Someone was more interested in graphic design than the readers. I have almost stopped using WLBT for my local news.
WLBT had been my go-to app until a few weeks ago. Now, there is absolutely no sound for the articles or the live broadcasts. There isn’t a sound issue with any other app I use, so what’s the problem with this one? Yes, it has the latest update.
News articles are outdated. When a new notification pops up on my phone, it takes me to the outdated article (example-Coronavirus updates keep showing the first article published). I end up going to a different news source to find current news. AND, I can’t post this because it requires a “nickname”, but every nickname I type in is “taken”🧐 Frustrated Ridiculous SC Sherry All nicknames are taken Joke Peanut butter
I’ve watched WLBT for 60 + years but no more. The firing of Barbie Bassett was more than enough to motivate me to boycott you guys. In a word : disgraceful. I doubt you’ll find any white person woke enough to suit you’re agenda if this lady could not.
