The best in the area. The 5, 5:30 and 6 newscast gets better every day. Also on weekends Allie does a wonderful job. Keep up the great work. Lauren is just the best. She always has and will always be my all time favorite. If she ever leaves, so do I.
While the actual live television crew at WLNS does fairly well with keeping up, the same cannot be said for their app. It’s the perfect app if you’re wondering what the news is from three days ago, a week ago, or maybe even a few months prior. If you’d like breaking news or even current happenings for the day, you are out of luck. But hey, at least you can always count on them to leave a story up long enough for you to read it, even if you read at the speed of pond water. 0/10 for quality. Cannot recommend.
I loved watching TV 6 growing up but as time goes on it seems the station is perpetuating a liberal bias. I want the news as in facts and truths and more often than not we are getting the station’s opinions on many articles. I don’t appreciate this. I want to decide on my own based of the facts and truth. Brainwashing is a big issue which I believe affecting all aspects of our lives. I’d appreciate the news if they stopped trying to influence us with their beliefs.
Nice app, but they don't keep it up to date. For example, they were talking about school closings for an ice storm that happened last Thursday. It was Sunday and we were in the middle of a snow storm, which was not not mentioned Update- don't bother, great app but they have an ad flashing in your face every 10 seconds. Cannot read even one article completely without an interruption.
I was hoping this app would provide me with a quick snapshot of local news and weather. However, EVERY time I open it I am bombarded with horrible, intrusive pop-up advertisements. It’s gotten so bad that instead of “swiping up to dismiss” the ad, I just double click and swipe up to force quit the app. I am so frustrated that I don’t even care about reading local news. May as well just get an app that provides me ads and not news.
When I want to look up an article I seen before can’t find it later. Need a search engine or something like that. Also when something went live can’t see it later when I can watch it. Some of us can’t have our phones when working. Frustrating!
Used to love the app and now I’m going to delete it. Problem is now I’m bombarded with notifications to watch the news. Unless you have lived in a cave for the last 20 years most people have an idea when the news is on. Give me the weather and news notifications and get rid the watch me ads.
I’ve opted out of select alerts (which is a feature your app offers), but yet I still receive ALL of them! When I open up the app the notification alerts that I received if I long tap on the notification it even says “you have opted out for NOTIFICATIONS alerts” but yet the app still sends them.
What a bias channel all democratic and they are not from our own State, you must think people don’t watch other news you make your newsfeed to what you want not what is the real truth. SHAME ON YOU and some of your newsfeed!
When you get towards the end of an article, the screen bounces up & down so you only get to finish the article about 50% of the time because the bouncing won't let you finish the article! Also when you share an article on Facebook the article's link comes up in the space where you can make a comment before sharing so you have to delete that first. When these issues are fixed I will give a higher rating.
I usually get onto this app often it's just lately I haven't just cause mine is always crashes it crashes about 3 times a day, and also it will send me a notification and I will open it and see what I was being notified about and most of the time the number on the app that says how many notifications it has usually goes away but lately it just stays there and it don't go away and I think it needs to be fixed SOON
I installed this new app/update/whatever-this-was at the urging of a news article on the old app. There are few things I regret more: the scrolling headlines make it nearly impossible for VoiceOver (built-in iPhone screenreader) to follow; there's a "settings" button but no settings options, only version and developer info; and when I clicked on "top 6 news", the app shut down on me, not one or two, but three times. The only thing keeping me from deleting this, um, app, is the hope that the developer will do better next time. UGH!!!
I can watch my local news from anywhere in the state, I think they need to put the wether forecast on the videos portion so we know what the meteorologist is saying. Also you can't view the community calendar, but if you miss the news or have no time for it, this is the mid Michigan news app for you.
A pretty good app, overall, with nice speed, pretty interface, and decent video. What drives me nuts are the poorly written articles. Writers seem unable to use proper grammar, punctuation or spelling. So many articles read like something from a teens text message. Please hire an editor to go over this stuff before it goes public.
Liked old app simplicity better. Only Lansing app with easy to find community calendar and up to date school closings. Can't find school closings and now news stories too graphic laden not enough typed info. Takes too long to load now too. You were best but not with this update.
Needs to be updated on weekends. Grammar is terrible. Otherwise good. Works well. Great for local news. Articles are timely but often too brief and appear to be taken directly from presenter's scripts.
There is no sound for any of the videos that I've tried to play. There were also typos in the first two stories I decided to read. Journalism 101: don't allow typos to make it to print. The whole app feels very amateur to me, which is sad, because I actually really like WLNS as a local news station.
I loved this app before the update now it is nearly unusable. You can't scroll through the news without hitting a huge ad and opening safari. Other features including the weather no longer work. Thanks for ruining a perfectly good app WLNS
