Much better app with some disappointments
Fast loading on an iPad but to wait 20? Secs for some unrelated ad to play, I have never streamed anything. There use to be a section for comments. It is needed. For example: a stolen green motorcycle was stolen. No information if it had a tag, And seen beefing driven away. What direction? Route? What happen to facts?
Won’t even open anymore too many ads before
Last 6 months it just crashes when I try and open it, before it was chock full of ads. I moved to watching the news on pc only I managed to get a malware infection from one of the many ads, it’s not surprising though as there’s 10x more ads than content. After that malware infection I started using an adblocker, I know you rely on the ad revenue etc. but nobody should feel bad for you that people use adblockers, based on the number of have you add alone. You deserve to fail as a company based solely on Your cancerous amount of ads, and will continue to deserve it until you reduce the quantity.
I’m not a fan of the ads. Especially the full page ad you have to wait for in the beginning. I realize you need the ad revenue but there are too many now. Also, the main reason for my review is the constant crashing. On both my iPhone 6 and my iPad2 mini. I’m beginning to just expect it. I browse through all the headlines first to see if it’ll be worth going back when (not if) it crashes. It Used to be my go to app for local news. Hopefully it gets fixed.
You’re All Great!
Because we are going through very difficult times right now, I’m just impelled to reach out to let you know how very much I appreciate ALL of you. Your news reports are comprehensive, and you report the information we need to hear! I wish ALL of you continued success and above all, good health!
Is this an improvement???
I don’t use the WCAX app much, usually just to re-watch a story or see one I missed. Downloaded this version last week. Takes sooooo long to open (to a full page add), looked through “news” for a story from yesterday, didn’t see it. Looked through “local news”, still wasn’t on the list. Meanwhile the app crashed, and had to restart which took at least 30 seconds to load. When I searched by keyword, I found the story I was looking for. Not impressed. iPhone X 11.2.6 on WIFI
The Advertisements are literally malware ridden sites, beware.
The ads are offensive, disturbing and quite frankly make me question the judgement of WCAX as a whole. This and the overall performance of the app caused me to uninstall it. And to think Darren Patton’s good name was within 100 feet of this monstrosity if a news delivery platform. Go home whatever undergrad they hired to build an iPhone optimized app, you’re drunk. I literally deserve to be paid for the advertisement gauntlet of emotional trauma that is this app. Please stay away. I’m willing to update my review, I am not bias. Please reach out
Very nice app, love that the streaming live news is back, thankyou!! Loads much faster than the old app, easier to get around, and a much nicer weather section. Who knows....might not need the WCAX standalone weather app any more, we'll see. Great work guys, a winner for me.
Upgraded to feature ads, no news. Waste of time, deleting app
Used to be a wonderful app with local and national news. Recently was upgraded so it's just a bunch of ads. There is no reason to download or waste time with this app. Deleting it and moving on to a news app which respects its users. I would give negative stars but they are not available.
Newsworthy crashes 😩
This app process a great service for getting both local and national news. HOWEVER on an iPhone6+ it crashes after you read 3-4 items (especially if you load the news video). If this were fixed I’d change my rating!
Writing over the video
This app does me no good if I can’t see the video. Every story is overwritten in an oversized font that completely blocks the video! We would love to watch channel 3 via HD broadcast as we are only nine miles from the transmitter. However, the signal is abysmally weak and only comes in on extremely fair days (read bluebird skies). Can WCAX work to improve these things?
Too many ads and you cannot get rid of them
The frequency of the ads and now the ads blocking what you are trying to read makes the app a great disappointment. I used to use it frequently to catch up on local news. Now I go to other sites. Get rid of the ads! Or at least some you can read the news.
Not a fan
I love WCAX news and weather. The website is pretty good. The app was tolerable until the opening ad you must now wait through. I’m deleting the app now...not worth it.
WCAX News App crash
The WCAX News App, along with other Gray-owned news apps, have been crashed and will be fixed just as soon as we can.
Very slow loading from previous version. Also immediately try’s to load weather even tho I didn’t select it ???
Just now updated to version 1.1.5. Wish I hadn’t! Crashes as soon as you open it. Deleted and downloaded again,same thing. I should know better. Old version worked fine other than banners. At least I could get the news. Live and learn. Don’t update!!!!
