Local news
It would be nice if a news app gave info on events happening in the area; I feel like we should go back to getting a newspaper. What would be so hard to have a small section about local things to do on the weekends.

Better Updates
Your station is very quick to report breaking news. I appreciate that! However, I find your updates lacking in both speed and content. Often, I find myself wondering about certain events that you have reported on and when I look for updated info, I typically find only the original story with a new or updated headline. Generally you end the story by saying you are following the story and will update as info becomes available. Instead of chasing every new and often trivial story, please spend a little more time on presenting the latest info on important stories you have started. Thank you, BHN Surfside Beach, SC

Great App
I very much love the information and presentation presented by this app. I only have one suggestion. Like today there was a be on the lookout for a fugitive post that was informative. However, you are unable to enlarge the picture to really see the person of interest. There are lots of times that there are great photos but you can’t see them on the presentation of a phone screen because it’s too small. Please see if there is a way to allow us to enlarge photos. Would be a great help. Thank you.

Problem loading articles
The problem is actually not a problem, but it’s a problem correlated to being on Wi-Fi. if I’m going to use this app and use it to its full potential, I have to not be using my Wi-Fi. If I’m using Wi-Fi the app will open, the ads will play the articles will not open. As soon as I turn my Wi-Fi off and use AT&T’s network, then the articles will show. it’s something I don’t like having to do by turning on and off my Wi-Fi it’s just how you have to do to use it now. Please fix.

Fan of old app
I do not like the new app at all. It is very hard to scroll to read the news due to so many pop up ads blocking your stories. I have all local mobile news apps and WMBF was always my favorite . Please clean it up!

Great app currently has bug
This app is fantastic but ever since I updated this app, it instantly crashes the minute I try to even use it. It won’t even open at all now.

Weather updates
Even with my settings adjusted to only be alerted for “breaking news” I still get flashes about weather every day. Not dangerous or unusual weather, just alerts to tell me that weather will be discussed on the news. Annoying.

New app format
The new app layout is very bland and does not really highlight stories. It’s kind of boring and confusing as to what is news and what are advertisement sponsored material. I am a news junkie but my time on this app has dropped 90% according to my screen time tracker.

Another garbage news app!
This app requires location services to load, really? I know why you want that feature so you can blast us with ads and btw this app is loaded with them to the point it is disruptive to the app! News is not updated daily and stories have misspelled words. For locals relying on information this is not the app for that!

New app needs fixes
Not thrilled with the new update. Every news alert is sent twice, a few minutes apart. The notification sound is quite annoying. It sounds like a video game.

App has issues
Alerts are revived. When you click on the sheet the article is not available. on it - and the article has not been published to the app yet Need ability to set parameters for news alerts and only get them for areas wanted.

Redundant content
Breaking news is fast, content of stories is adequate - however the number of unique stories is low - as you scroll down the list of stories they repeat over and over-why??! This is the reason for the 2 stars.

Terrible app update
This recent app update is terrible. I believe the advertisements are causing an issue. The layout is pretty bad as well. Have the station manager use this app for one day and I guarantee this will get fixed quickly. Looking forward to a quick corrective update.

New App Stinks
I hate the new app. Can’t silent the sound when notifications come in. Always shows the red bubble with all notifications even if they where two weeks old and clearer then. I am deleting this app. Can’t even rate it because they know it stinks.

Popup adds are too agressive
I just uninstalled this app and switched to another local stations add. It got to where I could not read an article without popup ads taking over the screen. To frustrating, I'm done with it. I understand ads on a free app but not to the point of highjacking the user.

Terrible News App
Horrible attempt to create or redesign a news app. The app is loaded with click bait. If you are lucky enough to actually click on a story they are very slow to load and crash. Totally disappointed.

New app is a step backwards
I was forced to download the update. Don’t like it at all. Why do I have to scroll through days old news to find anything from today? Will be searching for another news source.

New Update makes site unusable and not worth the trouble
When you try to view a page ad comes up, you delete pop up ad, then unable to read story you hoped to read. Very disappointing

Power outage 2/1/24 in our state
No explanation as to cause of outage? That’s unacceptable. What’s the secret? Hope to hear the reason soon. Amid all the terror, hacking, inept governing, we need clarity and honesty.

New update
The new update that I was forced to download is, frankly, absolutely a down grade and confusing from the previous version. A lot of my friends and colleagues agree with that since we typically use just WMBF app. Considering changing news apps.

Where is information?
You are all headlines…no follow up information. i.e. headline..Man goes missing..follow up. He is found….where? When? How? Who? First things I learned in journalism class.
