We always watch channel 7 news all the time because it is the very best news channel in Detroit! When we go to Florida every winter, we always have Channel 7 news on our phones and I also have it on my iPad so that we always have the news from home available. Great journalism and not FAKE NEWS!
All the news right in my palm, I catch up with the app more then I just sit and watch the live news channel, mostly cause I’m not always home to watch tv, and I get the notifications for the important things, the highlights, although I’ve lost complete interest, faith, and all in channel 7 WXYZ Detroit cause I’ve tried reaching out to them in need of help via Facebook they read it but said not a thing at all, so they aren’t there for people the way you’d like for them to be... (I bet if I win my case they’ll want to interview me then but I’ll refuse it completely and give it to some other station) but the app has been pretty much helpful mostly till I try to open the story on from the notification and it don’t take me to it like it’s should then you try searching and scrolling and you never find it even when it’s something that just happened and you try opening it right away, that needs to be fixed. So this is me giving those stars to the APP and no credit to channel 7 news.
While we have always loved the morning news, weather, and traffic from Channel 7, when we use the app, there is too much down time. When you try to open the "live" news, get ready to endure a 30 second commercial and maybe you get the live feed. There is no feed during the commercial breaks unless it is a local vendor. You may wait almost fifteen minutes until any news comes back. Try another station, you may have better luck. Thanks WXYZ for helping realize how much news one gets during a broadcast compared to how much time is spent on commercials.
Some good stories and some that shouldn’t be “news”.
App has some good news relevant to the area and even nationally. But I question some stories they post as real “news”. Maybe it’s a slow news day so they put in filler junk but I’d rather not see a story about a sex worker in Ann Arbor getting stuck in a chair. And when did “sex” work become legal in Michigan????? Our values and morals are clearly heading in the wrong direction and the news isn’t helping by reporting on garbage like this.
Thank you guys for finally adding a location option for While Using! I had it disabled because it drained my battery because it was always or never. It's not really necessary to use it unless the app is open, so thanks for realizing that!
This is great app and it is very helpful for snow day alerts. It gives me great traffic and weather updates to help with my daily life. The only thing keeping it from five star is that you can only save one school for snow day alerts as I work in a different school district than my kid. This makes things a bit harder in the winter. Otherwise great app!
I used to enjoy reading everyday news on the app, even though they are very slow reporting new things, your app is meant for local news and to keep people informed of what is going around them and not to express your political views, I get it you are democrat but at least be fair when it comes to reporting and let the people judge, also if you want yo report anything about Trump, make sure you report the positive news too and just the negative.
Since my work & life schedule usually keeps me from watching the news when it broadcasts, I rely on this app to keep me posted as to the highlights. I also like that I can adjust the weather forecast for my actual zip since I live just outside of Metro. Keep up the good stuff, WXYZ! Almont Twp., MI. 💕
I grew up in Detroit and watched Channel 7 News for years. 30 years ago I relocated to Florida and missed al of the Detroit products: Vernors, Faygo, Better Made, Free Press and (of course) Channel 7. Now, with the help of the Channel 7 News App, I can get a touch of home. Thanks Channel 7!
I switched from the other well known news channel app . Their news stories were more like an editorial with the stations preferences obvious. I just want the straight story/news. I’ll make my own decisions after reading. Thank you!
My husband and I have always been faithful followers of channel 7, however the bias that is overwhelming against our President is very disappointing all u report is the negative nothing about all the good his is doing. What a shame that the disrespect for our President is so obvious It is very clear that channel 7 and the news casters make it very clear that they are disappointed with the countries choice for the commander and chief of our country. Shame on all of you. Bob & Pat Fielding Howell, Michigan
This app is very convenient for checking school closings, it even sends a push notification for districts you select! However, the radar doesn’t seem to be optimized for iPhone X, unlike the rest of the app. Other than that, works great!
For someone reason I like channel 7 always have since I was a kid and I’m only 26 now .I watched Dave Rexroth when I was younger and wanted to become a meteorologist and so on just great people keeps me watching !
I love WXYZ for any and all news. Trust no other. Love, Davey Lew, Glenda, Carolyn, Rexie, all the weather associates, Faraz, Alicia, Keenan, Erin, Nana S. B, Kevin,Jenn, Kim and if I forgot someone sorry. But I am 68 and have watched 7 all my like. They are the best!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️. Coming to you from Dearborn.
After years of steady and continuous improvement. You have taken the big step backwards to a one star rating because of your video apps. There is no way to select an option of playing them. I am an early riser, and the last thing I want is the video Add playing at 4 AM while I am trying to review the news without disturbing my family. Shame on you. For being so obtrusive.
They are stealing possible private. I could not believe it but when I upgraded to iOS 14 it doesn’t prevent but now warns when they steal your data. You can replicate this go to notes, type something like “this is my fake password” and select it and copy it, then launch the WXYZ app and you will see message “WXYZ pasted from Notes” stating they just stole what you copied.
I like to have this on my tv while I am cooking. But I haven’t been able to because I have to keep going back and forth to adjust the volume. If I turn down the volume for the commercials I can’t hear the newscasters and vice versa.
The app was terrible before but it’s even worse now. Now you have “sign up”, which I’ve tried a dozen times and it won’t let me. It won’t tell me what the issue is either. So much for reading the news. Maybe... just maybe... you’d test your app, and work out the bugs before you launch it.
Major flaws Opens to pages where you can’t close the ads or forward story to Contact page that comes up in the article never sent bug report If it is that poorly programmed how do i know if the content is well researched
The video in this app is completely unreliable. I often times lose the sound during a live broadcast, and the buffering is out of control. Also ads will load and repeat themselves while I struggle to get the news from this app.
Ali Hoxie is not the correct person to have as your newscaster on live TV. She makes more mistakes reading from the teleprompter and it is so annoying. You have two other women who have substituted in her place and have done a great job. Please consider putting her back as a street reporter.
The app asks you to vote on tons of topics going on around town... and won’t let you opt out of those voting notifications. I just deleted it because it was too much.. I turned on the notifications for Channel 4 instead.
