Abrupt Need to Reload
I have had this app for a long time, BUT I really wish they would do something to fix to no warning stop in broadcasting. It’s not timed to a commercial break, just smack in the middle of the weather, or sports, or regular newscast. I have uninstalled and reinstalled, looked for updates, and (sigh) downloaded competitors apps so I can watch a full news broadcast uninterrupted, but the problem still exists. WNYT is my favorite, PLEASE fix your app!!!!

Impressively Disappointing
The short and uninformative articles are not updated frequently enough, particularly on the weekends. They aren’t spell or grammar checked, though they always take the time to boast about how all 4 sentences of the article were “posted here first”. The radar only works when the skies are clear, and goes completely blank anytime there is any precipitation, which I suppose is at least predictable enough to tell me if I need to close the windows. The app freezes all of the time because it’s so bogged down with ads and it needs to load those first. Today, a school day at 8am, they are still showing the live weather forecast from 22 hours ago.

Charlotte Sena
Thank you, Brian and Chrissy for your coverage of Charlotte Sena’s kidnapping. I can’t stop thinking about it. I had a cousin who was abducted, sexually molested, and shot back in the 80s…Kari Lynn Nixon. Her assailant was Robert Jones, who is still in prison to this day, and was just denied parole in August. I hope he spends the rest of his life in prison. We can never become too complacent. Your discussions are very meaningful and greatly appreciated!

Take it from good to great
I love the features of this app, but it needs some improvements in the streaming video portion. If you want to minimize the screen to multitask, the video stops playing in most cases and the screen goes black. Clicking on it to make it larger again and play does not work so you have to go through the whole process of turning it on again, including listening to the ads (which are too repetitive) again. Also, it is not mirroring properly with appleTV.

Great to outstanding
You can even watch it from New York City through the App. Never been to Albany but enjoy seeing the local events and news throughout the capital region. Sister station WNBC rarely reports about the state capital and I do not like to see Albany far apart from the New York Metropolitan Region.

A Complaint
Seem to loose my connection on a regular basis when watching live and have to re-start. Do not have that problem with other local stations.

Would be a 5
Like the app. Would love the app if I did not have to wait for ad in between EVERY story. Was always a fan of 13 but can not deal with ads. Even an ad free version for minimal charge I could rate it a 5

Depending on This
I have to depend on this news to keep me up to date as I’m on the move all day and can’t stop to catch it on tv. Thanks for keeping me in the know.

The ad at beginning of news is off putting after receiving an alert of interest. Then the ad for videos instantly after continues a sense of disconnect with what viewer wants to see. Content, however, is good with few grammatical errors.

Informative but glitchy
The app has good content but when you are scrolling through the constant ad updates cause the content to go up 3 to 4 articles and you have to go back down to read the last article you were reading just to see it again

I enjoy this app, but when you click on a news story and the commercial immediately starts to play; it’s just too much. When you’re in a quiet situation and you want to read the article, the video or commercial bursts through your phone. And you’re left scrambling to lower the volume or pause it. They need to fix that.

App freezes all the time. And as much as I hoped the local news would actually focus on important topics, they’re just out for likes and clout like the rest. Quite sad really. When your entire job is to read off a teleprompter and not do any of your own fact checking, it’s easy for people to question everything you put out as truth.
