Not bad, but not made for iPad use.
The app itself is a decent app, news is well covered. Would be great if the app worked in landscape mode for iPad.

Slow and unresponsive
The app worked great until they decided to update and change the app. I read a story and app crashes or does not respond. JI used to rely on app for breaking news and weather but now it is unresponsive even after update. I rely on school notifications and no longer receive. There is no longer an option to sign up for alerts or breaking news. I have now downloaded the competitors apps and they are easy to follow, responsive to selections, and receive the notifications. I have emailed a few times without a response. Time to move onto channel 2 & 5

App is now unusable!
I depended on this app for daily news sports and weather for a few years now. It was great until about one week ago. Whatever was done to the app at that time made it unusable. It is now sluggish, very slow and unstable. When it does work (seldom) the presentation and “look” of the stories is disjointed and terrible! I can’t understand how a news organization can’t test their app prior to publishing it! Just bad and a bad look for WLUK! I assume that whoever wrote the app that was in use prior to last week has left the company.

Major hits, although Major Misses
I love having the worldwide news interpreted by our favorite staff at Fox 11! The one thing that bugs me terribly is the radar on the app. Yes there is a radar, but you do not have the “Play,Pause””Future,Past” ability for the radar in the app. And even if I go to safari and click on your radar, it brings me right back to the app! That is very frustrating to me.

What were you thinking?
Congratulations! You have successfully ‘fixed’ the app until it broke. Can’t even get news anymore. App is garbage and you should be ashamed of yourselves. Unbelievable.

Thank you for many years of accurate news and weather....Marilyn J Streubel....

Needs help
This app does not work very well. It is slow & the home button doesn't always work. It sometimes won't let you scroll down. It forces you back to the top! You often can't click on stories to read. Sometimes the bottom menu bar gets stuck & covers over headlines so you can't read them. It really needs to be fixed. It worked much better before the last upgrade. I am deleting it until it is fixed. Too frustrating for me!

Nice but needs improvement
I get a notification on my lock screen but when I slide it, it doesn't go to the article or any additional information, only to the general news list and what was in the notification isn't there. I wish they would fix that. Otherwise it's a nice app. I like that I can watch the news live on my iPad through this app.

More bugs to fix
After latest review, iPhone app version refuses to show any articles unless under "All news". The message "No articles were found for the selected categories" is displayed for every other category. The app is otherwise ok but this has been a problem for a few days now.

This updated new app is horrible!!!
It's two steps backwards from the previous app. One thing that really irks me is that when you scroll down the list and find an article to read and you select and read that article and go back to the main menu it takes you to the top instead of to where you originally left off. Too much scrolling and wasting time in this new update. I can't use it no more until they fix these excessive scrolling issues.

This app is still terrible. The navigation is awful. After you leave the home page and progress through multiple screens, you can't go "back". You have to go "home" and then find your way all over again. Also, the 7 day forecast in the app is always different than the forecast in the video. I prefer to use their website over this app. I'd recommend they ask for a refund from their software developer.

Some bugs need to be fixed
When I try to post an article to Facebook it posts the weather not the article. When I try to go back to Fox 11 app from attempting to post an article there is no button or link to send me back to the app. Occasionally crashes. Please fix!

Can't handle the pop up ads
I have never ever been so ready to throw my phone over pop-up ads. Every time I read a story, it's a full page pop-up, and one tiny "x" to hit, which half the time takes me tithe ad I am trying to close. I. Do. Not. Want. A. Lazyboy!!! Worst I've ever seen. I also agree with the other reviewer that said there is excessive movement with the article titles. The titles are constantly sliding everywhere. Life doesn't have to be this hard people.

Since the last update, this version constantly freezes up. It almost always stops working at some point in between articles. It has never stayed open for the entire time I have been reading articles. When I click from one article to the next it takes forever. I seriously wonder how the old app that was spectacular could be replaced by this pile of garbage. Horrible move Fox 11.

Definitely not an update
I agree with all other reviews. This app has potential, it could be nice but until the small bugs are worked out its quite a bit less useable than the last update. Blows my mind you gotta start from the top of the list everytime you go back to the article list or at the end of a story. Please fix! I uses to love this app

Alerts pop up and I go to the app to find out additional info or to watch a video it says is playing. Most times the alert story isn’t posted yet and the videos, after having to click on this, go here and there...it doesn’t load or play. What a waste. Love the actual news on TV. The app needs a lot of work.

Definitely NOT loving newest app.
Duplicate stories are very annoying...especially when it takes longer to load. The fact that the app can only be viewed in portrait (versus landscape) orientation makes the app not friendly to many iPad users. The app overall has a "cheap" look, design, feel, and flow to it. It is definitely not as rich as it was with the previous version and developers.

Needs bigger back buttons
I do like this app, but trying to use the tiny little back buttons after reading a story makes it much less enjoyable. Just enlarge those buttons a little bit and it will be much more user friendly.

App settings
It’s 2022. Make the back button easier and stop the stupid auto play ads in news stories. If you are listening to podcasts or music it cuts out then you have to exit the app and go into what you were playing to start it again.

Still Not Working
This app used to be great, but all the screen movement due to adds is ridiculous. When I contacted the station in March they had no idea it was an issue and said they couldn't recreate the problem. Yet, it happens to me and others everyday. Today there are no stories listed, only adds! Based on current feedback and one star rating, its not getting any better.

The app still needs some work. When you press into a article there should be a back button to go to main screen at the end of the article not just the top. That's my only draw back of this app. Get that right it'll be great.

Needs Updates
This app is good for getting news but if you watch the weather and close it the next time you open it the same day is still playing. It needs to refresh itself upon opening. Only thing that works is to force close the app to refresh it

Deleting This App
Deleting for a second time but not going to reinstall it. The app hasn't worked for a few days. The only thing I can see are the ads. I deleted the app off my phone and reinstalled it thinking that would solve the problem. No such luck. Deleting now for the last time. I'll see if Fox 11's competitors have a better app. Has to be better than this one.

Old app was smooth and intuitive. New 3.01 app is slow and cumbersome. No back button when reading article (unless you scroll back to top). Hitting home or using back button causes app to refresh data, resulting in the "hourglass". If I just want to go back to the list of articles, it should not take that long. I refuse to use this app till a new update comes out. I will re-review at that time.

Fix the links!
Really getting tired of tapping on a story and getting a different one. Also the images don't pinch to shrink or enlarge any more. Apparently I'm not the only one with this problem. How can it be so hard to come up with a news app that works? WBAY works fine so do the other local news apps. If there are no fixes within a week I'm junking it going with WBAY.

Way too many notifications
When I first got the app, I loved it. Then they started sending me notifications about what was coming up on the news. I even turned off all the notifications except for breaking news but I was still getting useless notifications. I finally had to delete the app.

Junk App
What was once good is no more. When tapping on a story headline the correct story is not coming up. The latest update caused this to begin happening. The app is also crashing. I removed the app, restarted device and re-added the app and for it only to begin immediately redoing the same things. No change occurred for removing/re-adding. Please fix the app!!

Crappy update
Had the app for a long time until the update. New update is not user friendly at all. The navigation and the ability to go from story, and back, is horrible and extremely irritating. I love Fox 11, but I had to delete this app and use a different news app for my mobile needs. Very disappointing.

Hey Fox 11, get someone new to do your app!!! This is the worst version yet. It won't even open. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling and it will NOT work! Don't you even try something before you release it??? Pitiful...Do you really think that little of your viewers that you think this will pass as anything useful? WAKE UP!!

Terrible app functionality
This app hardly works the way it's supposed to. A push notification will come through and then when you click on it you get taken to an empty article or just the home screen with no corresponding article in sight. Will not ever use again.

Stopped working - jun2015
When it did work the commonly mentioned ad issue that causes the text to move is a simple issue to fix. Load place holders that are the same vertical size as the ads then load an ad within the place holder. An issue that has plagued this app can be solved easily.

I wish it were possible to give an App a negative star, or even zero stars! I've had all the same issues as previously listed in the reviews and now the app doesn't work. Shame on Fox 11 for taking no action. I've ready stopped watching them on TV as well.

I used to have this app & loved using it to stay on top of local news but ever since the ios8 update I can't read any articles at all. As soon as I try to, the app crashes. I'll check it out again if I see that it's been updated but until then it's a useless app

Still hate this app
I don't even bother using it for the news stories anymore but will still checkout the weather. The old app use to have a time stamp that would tic through on the future cast radar. Now I can't tell if its showing what may happen in 3 hours or 3 days. Complete fail!
