The app works well and the content is good. My complaint is that every time you play a video news article it plays a commercial “for the WSYX ABC app”. The same app that I’m watching the news on. E v e r y single video article leads with their own app advertisement. Every one! I understand the need to have commercials, but really? The same add for the app I’m using...on every video. Even the big network apps give you a break from commercials after you’ve seen a few. Way too irritating to keep watching. BTW ABC 6 Columbus is my favorite news station. I just wish they would modify their app.
Have had this app for almost a year but have noticed a crescendo of biased news reporting lately. Yesterday almost every other story was anti- President/ anti-American. It was so noticeable and disconcerting. Why can’t our local stations just report the news without leaning one way...& one way only! I realize national news has been leaning left for a long time- reporting only certain events, half- truths, and exaggerated stories many times not true. I expected more from my local news and have always liked ABC6 but I refuse to watch Or experience your app any longer! Your journalism ethics should be re-examined.
The app has never refreshed properly. I have to double tap the home button and close the app in the bar at the bottom of the screen. Then reopen the app to get it to refresh. With the latest update it opens the safari window which I have to close and then reopen the app. I like the way the app is setup it just has a couple issues that need resolved. The issue with the safari window opening is a pain.
The new update is optimized for the iPhone 5 and brings a new category layout that is attractive and user friendly. Some work needs to be done on the stories pages and the menu buttons along the bottom. The UI here is very unappealing (both the gray color and fonts). Progress has been made, but still has a ways to go before its my "go-to" Columbus news app.
This app gives news notifications but when you click on the notification to learn more about the story it just brings you to the app and there isn’t a good way to find the story that you were notification of. Make the notification pretty worthless/frustrating.
This could be a good app... When you get notifications it suggests that you swipe right to read the story, but that never happens. It just opens the app, but even after searching, the referenced story cannot be found. I don't understand this, as I would think that would be the intended purpose of the app in the first place.???
There are too many commercials that prevent this app from being worthwhile. I tried to get past the aggravation, but I eventually just deleted the app altogether. It’s a bummer because I decided to go without cable, so I have no way of getting local news except for watching their live newsfeeds and it’s just not worth the trouble.
While I think the app works well, that's all it does well. Someone needs to fix all the typos and weird symbols that come up in the headlines, it looks like an armature news station. It's not well laid out or easily navigated. I moved here from a much larger city and all the news networks had fantastic apps, this is very disappointing. They need to hire better media people.
I deleted when I tried watching a video of a robbery on the East side. Told me I had to watch 5 ads before watching. People are getting way too greedy with their ads lately. I won’t be bound to them. I could just watch on local news with less time on commercials.
Not a good app. It freezes and glitches out to my home screen when I click to see the weather. And the notifications don't lead to stories. And the sports section also does what the weather section does but not as often. When the sports section it's not accurate and only displays Ohio spots teams
Content is solid, picture is decent, but you cannot maintain streaming without keeping the app open which is really annoying. The reason I downloaded was to have the ability to stream to AppleTV and I must have the app open and phone unlocked to do so.
It would really be nice if there was a search function on this app. There is lots of information and it’s hard to find something pacific if you’re looking for it. I would think this will be pretty basic but it was left out.
While it's the only iPad App in the Columbus news Market, it has a lot of opportunities. The Weather is very stale. The radar is an hour and a half old view. Worst of all you can't zoom in. From a news perspective, it is not very organised. just a dump of news articles, no structure. Finally, the traffic crashes the app when launched. I gave three stars because it's the only one in the city. Great potential, please re-visit and do it right!
Super annoying that the live feed is gone. What happened? And the STIRR app you keep promoting isn’t working either.... would be nice to watch the news again on the morning during my workout. :/. Bring back the live stream!
This app worked yesterday but today no stories reflect and the date reflects as 1969. I have deleted the app and reinstalled twice but it did not fix it. Really frustrated that I am unable to report this issue. Can’t find anything on the website either.
Love the app notifications. However when you click on the notification to read the article it pulls the app up and you can't find the article. This is really annoying and totally unacceptable. Really? Is it beyond the wit of the app developers to correct this obvious mistake?
Apparently there is no good local news app in Columbus. Deleted the other 2, now deleting this one. The news feed has showed the same news stories for 2 days! Plus, no video weather update, which is a negative for me.
Since the recent update, this app is unusable. I use dark mode in iOS and this app will not work with dark mode turned on. I have been using it for years, but now all content is just black when you click on the news story. Please fix this....
This works fine for weather and if you want to read an article. But LISTENING to the reports and the live broadcast? Won’t happen. And developer is MIA. Guess I’ll find another local station’s app to use.
I have installed this app and deleted & re-installed it several times----all to no avail. Every time I tap on the app on my i-Pad, it loads and then dissapears off the screen. I have deleted it and have given up hope of using this app until they fix it.
Very disappointed. I used to use this app often then it stopped working so I upgraded the app and now it doesn't work at all. The app has been deleted. I'll use the other news stations with apps that work.
My mother and I wanted to watch the Macy day parade but their website wouldn't live stream on our phones so I got the app and I could not find anything to do with thanksgiving or the parade. It's a matter of bad content
