Minor Annoyance
I downloaded this app to watch the news live, because I don't have cable. I have two minor complaints thus far. The first complaint is the app opens up on my IPad vertically. Maybe I'm just weird, but I've always used my tablet horizontally. It'd be nice if the app would automatically turn horizontally to my preference like my other apps. When I watch the news live it will turn horizontally, but only after I rotate my tablet. Second complaint is I never thought I'd say this, but please diversify your ads. I'm tired of seeing Comet TV over and over, lol.

The worst update ever!
This new release is the worst. It is not user friendly and not as easy to navigate through top local stories as the previous version. When I have a minute to check out the latest local news, I want to skim through the headlines in a quick manner, not have to work through a list style view that provides little to no real information about the story. Reading is a good thing, everything does not have to be in audio or video format. I Downloaded WRCB app and will now get my local news from them.

Has Potential
The News Channel 9 app has potential and the news covered can be informative. One problem with the app is that I believe the touch target for the Back Arrow is too small and difficult to hit. It can take several attempts to return to the main page from a story. As far as the content goes, it would be worth while to have an editor with an eye for proper grammar and word usage.

Can't change weather location
South Bohemia? I want Chattanooga weather please. Can't change it. Can't go to app support, all it does is take me to frequent iPhone questions that don't answer my question. Also, ads are in the way, can't click them off once viewed and if you click on them by accident they open a new web page which you have to close and then go back and reopen the app. Very difficult to use. Going back to wrcbtv for my weather until I can get Chattanooga weather on this app.

Worthy of No Stars. Upgrade is massive step back.
The last version locked up a lot. This version seems to have solved that issue. Now the live feed is about 1/3 to 1/4 of the screen on my phone (and tablet)...when it is enlarged. The station has decided not to share cut-ins from the national feed - it instead goes to the 'We'll be back' screen. A sad example of a news app. It's better than nothing and thankfully it's free. Worth the price if you don't mind the overload of commercials while loading and banner ads.

Cool it with the notifications
Not a knock on the app functionality, but more on the content itself. I want news notifications related to relevant breaking news, not notifications that an article was published. In the past week I've gotten between 3 and 7 notifications per day of "news" but very little was actually notification-worthy news. Please use better judgement.

Not best source for “news”
The app is decent and they usually cover bigger stories in Chatt. However, there is definitely some bias (not horrible) in many stories, which is not what I want in my news sources. It is Sinclair so they also post Nation News Desk stories which are just poorly written drama news articles. I don’t recommend if you’re looking for an unbiased news source.

No sound
After installing the app update I noticed the sound while playing news videos etc stopped working. No matter what I did it did not resolve the problem... checking settings, updates, uninstalling and reinstalling the app, etc. The other news apps I have on my iPad when I play their videos I can hear sound and adjust the volume.

App issues?
App constantly crashes within seconds on my iDevice now even after re-installs. Still watch NC9, but the app is a no-go for me at the moment. On edit: Seems to be working a little better...maybe had just been a server issue? But live newscasts viewing not working for me.

Nice app, fix ad countdown timer
Nice app. The only issue is the ad countdown timer is slower than the video so once the ad is over there is an additional 10-15 seconds before the news story begins playing.

Links not working
I get the push news alerts but when I click on it to read the article it’s not pulling up that article. Then I cannot find it. Please fix the links to make them work from the push news alerts to clicking on the article. Thanks

Not working!
I downloaded the app and when I first tried to open it from my home screen it keeps closing out. It's done this every time I open the app. I don't get to see anything except the first main screen-it doesn't even make it to the catagory option screen for news, weather, etc. So disappointed!

Pushing an agenda and articles won’t open
This news channel pushes a liberal agenda especially on social media. I’ll no longer follow this station mostly because of that. Also, notifications come throughout the day, however they open in the app and the story rarely loads. Waste of time.

Too many notifications
The app is handy but the notifications are terribly annoying, some starting at 4:45 am and going after 11 pm. One day I had 11 notifications, some redundant. Functionality of the app is easy but the amount of notifications are annoying.

Ads keep sending me to App Store
I deleted the app because if I read an article it keeps sending me to the App Store to the whiteout survival download page. It happens usually 4-5 times each time I’m reading an article.

Split screen
Though it shows up in the slideover app list, when using it in split screen in ios 9 on the ipad Air 2, many of the graphics do not render properly.

The notifications don't take you to the story. What's the point. Plus, it would be nice to have a section with local news.

Icon only takes you to info on how to use the app. No way to go anywhere else. Deleting it - I'll get my news elsewhere.

...a piece of crap. Locks up every time you try to view the news. Good job. Did y'all let the weather guy write this?

App closes out every time
The app was working perfect until this past Monday 2/20/17. Now every time I try to open it, it freezes and then restarts my iPad. I loved the app until this happened. What is going on? I've uninstalled and reinstalled and it's only the iPad that is affected.
