The app opens to the logo and never goes beyond it. It doesn’t even get to a point where I can access settings to try to fix it. It doesn’t matter if I open the app directly or try to open it through a push notification. Same issue. I tried to report a problem but that took me to a website that said I didn’t have a purchase so I couldn’t report an issue. Frustrating. Guess I’ll just delete it all together.
Iphone5. I 'vote' for the previous version as well, though this has its good points as well. I don't notice any technical problems (no crashing, no long download times), but the weather module has little info & and that info is not "live", not up to the minute. It has no radar (but that is no problem for me, since there are a couple of better weather apps out there).
I wanted news from San Antonio as we live nearby and conduct business in town. I was willing to deal with the mainstream narrative as I just ignored it, reading the actual news only. But what caused me to delete this app was the polls they ask. After answering the polls they give the results. The results were always so unbelievable and totally conflicted with national polls, bordering on ridiculous. I just couldn’t take it. News is supposed to be news, no narrative, just news.
I get a notification on my phone about a story that is "breaking", I click on it to read or understand the situation and I cannot actually see or find the story. Your app is pathetic when it comes to seeking developing stories. I will be deleting your horrendous app. It provides me with nothing about what is going on in the area. I have to jump to other sites to find the actual news on what I get a notification from your site/app. Very disappointed!
It can be very frustrating at times with the app. I love the notifications, but sometimes it’s a 50/50 chance on when you click on the notification that, that news is actually on the app(usually developing stories ie). Videos hardly ever have any sound. And maybe update the ratio aspect to fit newer devices and there longer screens(iPhone X). Definitely a work in progress.
Since moving to their new building, I have not been able to get sound when playing their video. Keep trying every few days to see if problem resolved, but, not yet. I have an iPhone 5s with iOS 8.1.2 Don't know if problem is tied to connectivity with the phone or another issue, but it is frustrating to be unable to view a listen to a video when viewing...especially times when there is no written article, only a video! Would like to see (hear) problem resolved; was looking forward to experiencing the changes in their news as result of moving to new building. I watch news exclusively on my phone so I can watch it at my convenience.
This app has multiple problems. When I get a notification and I click on it from my phone or ipad the app opens to the features and I can never actually use the app. Morning notifications of dead bodies found on the east side or people being shot on the west side are seriously unnecessary. None of that is "news I can use." Can a person get a notification for the weather? A real time traffic report? Something uplifting?
PLEASE stop forcing me into watching a video!!! It's annoying to no end when I swipe for a new article and instead get sent to you tube to watch a video I don't much care to watch. It happens every few swipes (I'd say "articles" but those number fewer with this app recently) and it's frustrating. STOP. Loved the app until it became less like a newspaper (let me read!) and more like a cheesy news feed topped off with unwanted you tube detours.
I watch the news on this app everyday and love WOAI . However , the app doesn’t stream correctly . I’ll be watching and then it just turns off & I've missed the story . Sometimes there’s no sound . And other times , it appears to “rewind” itself and then goes back to real time . So I’m missing many parts of the news broadcasting daily . Hopefully this will be fixed soon .
I deleted the app and reinstalled, I turned off my iPad and turned it back on... no sound. Sending an email to the developer and to the news station to see if they can look into it. Not experiencing this issue on my iPhone, just the iPad. Looks like other users are experiencing the same issue since there is another reviewer who wrote about it on 2/15.
Whenever news breaks and it domes through the news feed and I click it to see the story... it goes to the main page and I lose the story I was interested in. This is annoying. It never goes to the news story I clicked on.
I have not been able to use it because it will not load correctly. I get alerts and I try to see story and it still will not load. I will be removing it soon if it is not fixed. I have deleted it and reinstalled it and it still does not work.....
It would be a great app only if it was kept current. Too many news stories that are days and weeks old, a news app should update multiple times a day at the least. I skip the app and go to the TV or web for current news. Don't waste your time on the app. Caveat, I love WOAI radio and TV but the app needs to improve or go away.
I enjoy staying up to date with what’s happening but the more I read and understand the undertones to some of these posted articles. This app is biased and pushes one side way more than the other. I wish y’all could lean more neutral and stop eating the sheep feed. 🐑
This app sometimes won't open articles, won't switch between articles, and always gets stuck and can't be closed. I've reinstalled this app several times in the past months but it continues to have major problems. Don't waste your time.
Do they actually pay the people who write the news briefs? My 4th grade granddaughter could do a better job with sentence structure, grammar and spelling. You'd think a big news station would care about such things but apparently News 4 does not. Do not recommend!
This app is worthless. The experience is horrible. The links to articles are wrong and open completely different stories than what you clicked on. Don't bother installing this and WOAI should get their money back from whoever sold them this crap.
You need to rewrite the entire design of this App. The designer(s) were "on something". It's very confusing if you're interested in catching weather or news stories. If I need workers comp insurance I guess this is the app for me! I deleted it immediately. "Weather Bug"
I've downloaded this app twice and both times the sound doesn't work. The sound on my iPad works great with all my other apps. I have to conclude it's this app. Too bad because this is my favorite news station.
