Up To Date News Alerts!
Appreciate the convenience of staying fully informed while on the move. The AAP gives a Headline which I can clip on for the full story, or leave till I have more time, etc Great knowing immediately the local headlines, wrecks, as well as important national news. I’m a believer👍

Poorly optimized and unavoidable ads!
I enjoyed the access to local news headlines, and I appreciate that the news stories were never behind a paywall. However, this app made my phone’s performance abysmal! The app constantly refreshed in the background, even after disabling this option in settings, and unavoidable full-screen animated ads (with embarrassing sound) popped up at random intervals. Extremely frustrating, and there’s no paid ad-free version available. Save your phone and just pin the WLOX homepage to your home screen!

Don’t like new update
This new update isn’t as user friendly as the previous one. The colors and the set up seem distracting. It just kind of irritates you look for what you want to see first. It also freezes up, you have to close it and reopen. Sometimes change isn’t always the best. Also couldn’t rate the app in the actual app. That link doesn’t do anything. I had to go to the App Store.

Good news, the app needs a little tweaking
The problem with the app is when I turn my iPhone sideways to view a picture or video I can’t go back, the app freezes. I have to completely close the app and reopen it to continue. Very frustrating. And I realize the news has to advertise, but do I have to see one EVERY TIME i view a video? I have to admit that I don’t watch as many because of the ads. Thank you for letting me air my thoughts.

Latest Version is a disappoint
The new version uses a font that is not as reader-friendly. It’s much slower to load, and the ads are placed too frequently and are distracting. In general, I find WLOX doesn’t update the news as frequently enough. There has to be more stories that are of local interest. Instead of the same news with no updates,!there could be more inspirational local coverage. Perhaps the most ironic and frequent negative aspect is the message of “there’s no news,” which in find is more frequent at night and on weekends.

Lacks local sports
Football is over; all I see are JUCO or High School football choices. What about Basketball, among other things. Coast teams have been trying to get to Jackson, but I can’t seem to find anything about them. Hard to support them if we don’t know where/when they’re playing next.

How well the reporters articulate
I am so proud of how well our local reporters articulate what is happening in our community. They do it with such professionalism and most of it is impromptu which makes so so much believable, “ no fakes in our news casters.”

New update seems like a jumbled mess.
I use this app everyday and I recently downloaded the newest update. It looks like a disorganized, jumbled mess. Often the same story featured several times and there is no clear division and eye appeal to the dividing lines between stories as they are listed on the main page. Also with the recent storm in the Atlantic there should be an update on the main page with current Speeds and forecast.

Ad aggravation
I do not like having to go thru an add to get to the news. TV is ok but on your web site an ad is aggravating . In my case, I had a bad experience with America factory and it’s a waste of time navigating thru the ad. Do you have a premium app that by-passes the add?

WLOX is where I start my morning. The content is lackluster, and stale. Quite a bit of the current content is months old. The weather part is only somewhat helpful now since they removed the live morning report. Really enjoyed watching Wesley, he had a lot of enthusiasm. Near Zero on the saints. My time on the site has gone from 15min to 4min, then it's on to AppleNews.

1 year ago, Want News Not Adds
Too many adds.
I don't want to see an add breaking up every sentence of every news story and prefer not to read the news at all if that'a what I'm going to get. Would even prefer to pay for news and not get the add interruptions, but, doesn't seem to be an option.

Another racist news outlet.
This “news outlet” that claims to be unbiased and equally representative is ACTUALLY openly racist. Notice the capitalization differences. “Black” is NOT a proper noun, and by capitalizing it and not “white”, you are a prime example of how media drives separation in the masses for profit. Shame on your company and I will no longer follow such racist bigotry. What a joke.

Latest Version is Awful
The new update is awful. It is confusing. It's hard to separate the headlines. It repeats headlines/news on home page. Mixes old news with new news. As a result, I have now started going to the Sun Herald app to get my daily news. I pray to God that they do not screw up the wlox weather when they do an update for it.

No thanks
Will not work unless location access is given. Why does the app require location access to just read the news? And, just like last time I had this app, it’s slam full of ads. No thanks, I’ll be deleting again.

Horrible app!
The old WLOX app was not very good. This one is a hundred times worse! It’s hard to follow which stories are actual news and which are just click-bait. It’s very disjointed in the presentation and has too many adds.

App is terrible
Your new news app is more than useless. It has no logical order and if this app was paper, it would not even make a good mullet wrapper. It should be flushed. Since giving the app zero stars is not an option, you get a one.

Since previous updates, when I select a story, the download stops around halfway and that’s it. I never see the story. I have a really nice frame and title, but no content. Same on the WDAM app
