Recent update causes app to freeze
I am unable to use the app following the most recent update. The screen totally freezes.

Poor layout, lacking in quality and content
Top news is flooded by endless ads, incessant calls for 'cute pet' photos, "amazing" high school football plays, and more ads. The few article that one manages to find after scouring through the drivel, are poorly written and never present an authoritative professional journalistic tone. Trying to get the days news from this app was akin to "reading" a mediocre high school news letter. Yes with such abysmal writing and reporting, it is only natural for a reasonably intelligent person to "expect more", but less is all that is on display with News4.

Completely unusable after most recent update.
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.

Old version was a lot better. I’ll try to see if I can roll it back. If anybody does know please post it. Thanks

Ok
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).

Pushes the mainstream media narrative
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.

Your app is terrible
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!

Needs work..
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.

No Sound on Video
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.

Disfunctional app
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?

Stop The Video!
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.

Doesn’t work consistently
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 .

No sound
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.

News break problem
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.

Waste of time
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.

Super easy to navigate- - it's a great way to get un-biased, up to the minute news. Alerts are sent to my phone as news events happen.

Slowly but surely disliking this app
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. 🐑

Wish rotated
Portrait orientation is good for using on a phone, but a lot of us use a tablet in landscape. Even on a phone it is handy to be able to rotate 180 degrees if connected to a charger.

Not good!
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.

Where is the editor?
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!

Worthless
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.

App is useless
The app sends breaking news pop up, when you click it you have to sit through minutes of commercials to find what is presented does not relate to the pop up. App not worth the memory on the phone

This is a terrible App!
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"

Not so good
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.

Just Sad
This used to be an app I would go to everyday, but since it changed, it is useless. No Radar? Little to no news? It is all showy, and confusing. You had a good thing going, you should have kept it.

Very disappointed again. This app is just a list that doesn't even rotate. Why even have an app? It was great up until the last couple updates. I wouldn't recommend this app to anyone. (F)
