I wanted to look up an old story, maybe 2 weeks old. It's not easy at all to search for a story. I did find a way to search, but I have no clue how I did it, or how to get back to it. Should be a more obvious way to "search".
This cannot properly be called an app. All you get is the station logo on a blank screen. Are we supposed to wait 5 minutes or longer for something to show up? But still nothing shows up other than the logo? Something is radically wrong with this so-called “app”.
This last release is a pain. You get no news unless you select "All News." Settings are not saved, so every time you open the app you have to start over. Also, on the iPad, since the redesign, it will not orient itself to landscape. The person in charge of the push notifications is driving everybody crazy. Notifications are being sent out for every little thing. The news is coming on at five, the news is coming on at six, the news is coming on at 11. We're going to talk about this and we're going to talk about that! I'm going to have to delete the app if I can't get these things turned off!!!
App has come a long way, but it would be nice to have an option to customize notifications. I want breaking local news alerts, but high school football scores flashing on my screen every 5 minutes on a Friday night gets annoying.
This doesn’t work in landscape and will not flip in portrait, allowing only one aspect. There are often headlines but no body following it and no obvious way to locate the actual story. On the plus side, the annoying advertisements that appear in the middle of the story (when the story is actually shown) are fairly short and appropriately are removed when finished.
This app is a link to my community. Only, it doesn't want to work! It will run for a brief second. And suddenly it quits. I can not follow the local news. And feel connected to our community if I constantly have problems with this app. I might be better off without this. That's to bad too. I'd like to be able to keep up on currant schedules. Good luck with that. I'd really like to cuss like a storm. Keep reloading the page. Gets very frustrating. We pay a lot for these devices not to work. That ain't right...
Update June 2017: DOES NOT WORK AT ALL ON IPAD! The App refuses to open! They promote it all the time on air, but it's not worth the time to install or memory to keep! ------------------------------------------ This release works well on the iPhone. The iPad is another matter. Very slow to load and will not orient to landscape format. Irritating! Just updated to ver. 6.7.0. On the iPad it still won't orient to landscape. The word wrap is terrible. Each line is run off the page regardless of the text size. About ready to delete it and forget it! Updated to 6.8.0. Still no landscape support for the iPad! Word wrap has improved, but the whole thing is irritating. They push this app over the air, but they won't take the time to fix it! Reducing rating to 2 stars due to lack of functionality!
in the last two weeks every time I tried to enter the app, it would just send me to the App Store with different apps to buy. I could never even read a story. So I figured that the app must have been hacked. I sent a message to news three which they have never responded. So I figured it must be my phone but I know that's not true because I got a new phone yesterday and downloaded the app and I have the exact same problem. So unfortunately I have deleted the app
I would like to know why the app causes my iphone to run hot? what is the app doing in the background that would cause iphones to run hot and damage the battery? this is my second iphone this app has literally destroyed the battery due to causing the phone to run so hot you can’t hold on to the phone after a while. again what is this app doing in the background???
I like news 3 for their coverage of local news in kazoo and Battle Creek but, this app needs to be fixed. Every so often I click on the news section and I'm brought to the I-team investigations page instead. I also wish that the app would update breaking news sooner.
Just downloaded this upgraded app. It's now formatted for ipad which is much appreciated. The layout is easy to use and so far no problems. The reason for 3 stars versus 5 was videos. I'm not able to view any. Not sure why?
It is improving, but still not worth it even free. They do not update enough and not at all on weekends or holidays. When you open the "WATCH LIVE" it tells you you have to do this during a regular scheduled newscast, even while you are currently watching a news cast. I wonder if they will ever get their act together. There are much better local station apps.
Lots of potential unfortunately whom Ever is in charge of posting content Is either super busy or a slacker very Updates throughout the day and I Guess everyone goes home at 5 on Friday and doesn't return till sometime Mid morning on Mondays same stuff all Weekend gets old after awhile it makes Me not even want to open the app.
I live in St. Jo County and yesterday afternoon there was a stand off with the Police and even the Swat Team in Three Rivers. And there was an accident on Covered Bridge Road and not one word about either on the 5-6:30pm news. Not every story has to be about the virus. There was 1 accident on (I believe) center street reported. Thank God the mail carrier story mad the cut. Disappointed!!!!!
I have had to turn off the push notifications everyday for the past week. They keep turning back on. I do know how to do this and verified they were off each time. After 7 attempts to turn them off I have now deleted the app. Too bad for WWMT.
This app has always had issues. It has only gotten worse. The news stories do not seem to update as quickly. Too much going on. The closings and delays section is a jumbled up mess that has error message when trying to open.
Very frustrating app, freezes too often. Deleted and reinstalled several times. Not doing that again. Side note doesn't seem to want to accept a bad review, had to type this out several times also due nickname already used
Since I downloaded the latest update, it consistently turns itself off after opening the app. Please fix it! I use this app to follow Michigan news. We live in southwest Michigan and wwmt is one of our few choices for news.
Doesn’t really report on local news, especially if they prefer to get bribes or special treatment from powerful companies taking advantage of employees. Journalism, don’t make waves, just stay safely behind your desk doing feel good pieces.
I can't believe how one sided your news reporting has become. I've grown sick and tired of it and am removing this app and hope everyone else who feels this way do the same! It would also be nice if Tom Van Howe's column wasn't totally one-sided!
