Keep digging
November 2023 Update: The app continues to be more annoying than useful. You can now click on the alerts, but only from one particular screen in the app. If you’re in a different section, you have no access. And why does the app need to take over my sound any time I open it? I can read the poorly-written articles while my other apps are playing something. How does one continue to make the app worse with every update. Now when I have a notification, I can’t click on the “Alerts” section at the top of the screen. It just won’t respond. Must be nice being the only game in town.

Birthday Announcement
I've been using the app for a few years now but I'm not sure why birthday announcements aren't aired when submitted on time. If there are too many maybe they should split them up during the news air time. It's just disappointing when you've taken the time to submit them and they don't show them.

Pop-up Adds and Spam Links
This app has pop-up adds from local businesses that are frequent and annoying. And every legitimate story is followed by countless spam links to those bogus stories that are everywhere; you k ow the ones: “What you should pay for dental implants…” “Smartphone users, do this today…” “Unsold SUVs going for Pennie’s on the dollar”… They are all spam and click-bait crap. Put legit adds that your readers/viewers would appreciate, but don’t pop them up so frequently, please. Thank you.

Too many non relevant ads
News comes in spurts but your ads are like Niagara Falls and not the least bit relevant to me. It’s like you pick the ads that pay the most and show them to everybody. This was the way things were done in yester years but now with Cookies (and milk) when one signs up things are generally a bit more.....

Way too many ads
The news itself is great, but the ridiculous number of pop up ads makes the experience almost unbearable. The app makes the station come off as more of a tabloid than a reputable news source. I understand that funding is necessary, but user experience is vitally important as well.

Frozen on tracking adds
I had to delete app. Every time I go in I get a message about reverent/less revenant adds and wants you to track me. Because I don’t want to be tracked for my own personal privacy, it is frozen and will not allow me to view the news. Your new app stinks. I only go to WRBL to get my news now.

Very Slow...Alerts do not lead to a story
App very slow to load. Get alerts on phone, but when clicking on the alert, there is no news story to follow. News on app seems out of date.

App Update
The updated app is more focused on advertising than providing news. I understand that I may have to endure pop up advertisements, but I should not have to allow tracking in order to view the news.

Major league frustrating!
Too many ads coving the news articles. And THEN it’s almost impossible to close the ads and make them GO AWAY! What good is a news app where you can’t read the news?

New App
With the new update the app locks up and can get the news. Deleted the app and reinstalled. Same issues. So I deleted the app and loaded the WRBL app. That app works fine for local news.

I Love This App But....
I love the WTVM app because I don't always get the chance to catch the news on TV and this allows me to keep me up to date. My only complaint is I have noticed that the ads have become more invasive. I could be in the middle of reading a story and an ad will pop up and I have to give it a minute before I can close it out to get back to the story. Please change this I know this is a free app and that is how revenue is created to keep it that way but it's annoying.

No new news.
Okay, whoever loads the new News is behind. There have been numerous important items that have occurred in the past few days that have not posted. All that shows up are old. The things I'm talking about have been on the television but have not made this app. So get on the ball and update the news and I will give you five stars. Until then it's three and will keep going down until fixed.

Too many alerts
Recently WTVM has been sending out alerts like crazy. The articles, within the app, are obviously not proof read before publish, because they contain grammatical errors and often lack coherency. If you are going to send me an alert at 4am, make the article, it links to, make sense.

Alert links don't open correct page
Amber alert pops up and you say to yourself, "I really should click on that. What if the perp drives by. I'd really like to have that info right now". You click on it and BAM a blank page in the sports section, or a two week old news story.

New teasers?
I downloaded the app in an attempt to keep up with the local news because my current situation doesn't afford much time, nor opportunity to "tune in" at a specific time. I would like to read all news stories and possibly watch small clips instead of missing the news altogether..

Way too many notifications
Good app to have and I use to really like this app until they started sending alerts out about their news times. I get alerts at 5 in the morning or 12 midnight and I want to throw the phone across the room. I'm really considering deleting this app if they don't stop.

Good app, too many non-news alerts
I deleted the app after years because the app was sending alerts before several daily newscasts. I understand the value of pushing to news programming, but it was excessive, particularly at 11 pm.

Could be 50% better
Half of what I watch on the news daily is never seen on this app so if I miss the news one day I can't click on this app and find out what's going on, Channel 9 should do better than this, I'm going to install WRBL news and compare.
