Terrible. (a word that I don’t often use)
I rarely spend my time bothering to write reviews, and when I do, they are generally deservingly positive. That being said this is easily by far the worst app that I have. Actually make that had - it isn’t worth having on any of my devices any longer. Poor stability, annoying advertising format & presentation, notifications occasionally sync inaccurately with their respective stories, frequently not current, awful layout, customization options are laughable, story posting lacks any discernible order; essentially just frustrating to use if you’re lucky enough to use it without it crashing. To make matters worse the app now has “for Apple users” buttons. Why release an app that isn’t compatible with one of the two major platforms seamlessly? It is a shame as the WBAY news staff are easily my favorite local source. Unfortunately this app is not on par with what they’ve done to earn my viewership. Please put forth a stronger effort.
I tolerated the full page ads in the previous version, because I didn't mind closing a few ads to get content. But this new version is getting deleted from my phone. Now when you launch the weather, a video ad automatically plays at full volume, despite my phone being silenced. You wait until the ad is over to see content, only to have ANOTHER ad window pop up. Close that one, and you go back to the previous page, which launches the auto-play, full volume video ad AGAIN. No thanks. It's faster and easier to pull up a weather forecast on any website.
I am beyond disappointed with this news station. I miss reading non biased view points which were to the point and full of facts. Now every time I read an article there are too many adjectives to assign specific identities to ideas in which this is not necessary. I miss the days when we presented both sides of the story and allowed the public to think for themselves. Shame on this broadcast for finger pointing.
I wish I could get the previous version back!!!
The former version was a decent app which I used a lot. This new version absolutely stinks. I agree with several of the negative comments posted. I like channel 2 news, but if something doesn't happen soon to revert this, it's going to be deleted from my iphone. It's rediculus to continue using it, with all the extra steps and poor user control!
Slow to load
Since the update, I have yet to load WBAY. All I get is a circle which continually goes around and around and around.....then, I always have to switch over to WFRV or FOX11 to get what I need. WBAY said they have new partners and they are going to get better. I seriously doubt it. I am deleting WBAY from my Air IPad and this time, not coming back! At this rate, would rather listen to MKE news. At least their news is CURRENT.
I can look at this app or the weather specific one while watching the live version on tv and they never are even close to matching up. Shouldn’t the app and the live version be fed by the same information? Which is more accurate?
WBAY seems to take every opportunity to post any story of questionable relevance if it slams Trump. But if you only got your news from this app you wouldn’t even know Hillary Clinton exists. I generously gave 2 stars for the sports and weather sections.
Stop putting gb packers alerts in the news. I specifically have sports notifications turned off yet every time a packer so much as farts, it’s a news alert. The news is news and sports are sports. Quit conflating the two as I (and I’m sure many others that refuse to take a knee at the alter of marxist blm) could give two sh1ts about the packers.
I don’t need to know about every single White House COVID-19 briefing. If you want to alert me after it’s been fact-checked, cool. cool... but let me turn off that alert, for the love of God. I don’t care to hear conspiracies or bragging about the ratings of the briefing.
This used to be my go to app for news but now, every time I try to open a news story, it crashes. I have uninstalled and installed the app many times as well as updating my phone and restarting my phone. I hope they get this fixed soon. But it’s been a while.
Issues reading new stories
Have enjoyed this app until recently. Every time I go to read a news story the app closes and I am unable to read to story.
App okay, killed by pop-up
The app would be okay, were it not for your selling ad space to “Outbrain”. Their ad pops up mid screen, blocking people from reading the articles, literally the ONLY reason people go there. I don’t know what genius thought that partnership was okay, but they should be walked out the door.
Doesn’t work at all anymore
The incessant (same old) ads are terribly annoying. Since the last update, it shuts down as soon as the news portioned is accessed. The weather portion is not designed well and the radar is hard to access and read. Deleted.
Latest update has bugs
iPhone 6 has latest update. WBAY app is latest update. When I open app and touch the news pane, the app crashes every time. The other panes will open. At this point I would rather not have the app. Annoying to say the least!
Not as bad as the last version. Still awful, though. Ads everywhere, loads slow, too busy on the home screen. Just look at some of the other news apps if you really want to see a good layout.
