News mobile app brings you all the top stories from our daily broadcasts, as
well as stories developing in real time. WKBN 27 First News provides the latest
news, weather, sports and obituaries for Youngstow...
I LOVE this app!! I have a busy life and I’m always on the go. I don’t always have time to sit and watch the news at home so it’s just more convenient for me that I can just pick up my phone at anytime and check out the news and see what’s going on in my neighborhood. I don’t have any issues with this app. I give this app a 5 Star.
Home news away from home
For those like me that live most of the year away from the area, I‘m glad for this local news app. The app functions well, but it could be technically improved. I depend on notifications (turn them ON!) and usually read the stories that interest me. If there’s one thing I could change it would be for the content editors to show less left wing bias; It’s sometimes like you’re on the DNC payroll.
Your TV Signal
I can’t receive your signal here in Salem even though my antenna with a booster is headed towards you. I recieve channel 21 very clear however WKBN 27 is my favorite channel. Even pointed your direction I even get Cleveland Channels. This is a FYI only. I have your News and Weather apps on my iPhone and iPad. Thanks.
I have never seen a station so biased as your station against the city of Warren . When your weather team shows views of other areas Warren is excluded when they show temperatures they show the airport using the excuse of not having a thermometer for Warren but working on getting one which has been ever since Paul became head weather man. Your news announcer referred to the airport as the Youngstown-Vienna airport I will encourage all Warren residence to refrain from doing business with your sponsors until the time comes when your staff can be less biased
One flaw that could be deadly
Nice app, except when the weather changes for the worst and your trying to watch the live feed broadcast and have to sit through a 30sec to a minute ad. In moments where seconds could mean life and death and somebody is trying to sell me a car. Smh please remove ads from emergency broadcasts on the mobile app.
Too many ads!
When the app first came out it was fine, but now it has gotten ridiculous with the ads. There’s an ad when the app is first opened. Then there is a permanent banner ad at the bottom of the screen. When you click on a news video you get a commercial first then the news is played. Now most recently, there are ‘Sponsor’ ads in between every couple of news stories on the feed. Crazy!
The ads on this app are placed so that you accidentally click on them. I don't like that the ads often have "headlines" that look like a news story. The ads are often inappropriate. I don't want to be linked to a page about a gun range when reading about the Texas church shootings or any other murder. When trying to read election results, I was redirected 3-4 times to a site asking for money to send Bibles to Syria. Very annoying.
Great local coverage
When the WKBN site first changed I was unsure of the quality of the reporting. But it has grown to be the number one site I go to for all things local. I think they do a fine job.
I would like to see more frequent updates especially on weekends. High school sports schedules are difficult to find, as I like to see different teams each week during football season. Access to timely police blotters each day would be great, not just weekly or monthly. The weather reports are excellent.
I absolutely love this app. It’s so useful when you’re constantly on the go. And I love that there is more live content than on some of the other local news apps.
Anchors n weather
Your Two from 5:am to 9:00 am are are excellent Chelsea n Dan n Alex that does the weather is excellent too. Chelsea n Alex work together from 12:00 to 12:30 grt Them two are e best they are both more than 5 star
My hometown connection!
I’m grateful to be able to keep in touch with news from my hometown, after being away for 22 years.
Up to date on news and events
Nice to know what’s going on around me, and in the rest of the world no matter what I’m doing
Network connectivity issues
Almost every time I open up the app it tells me I have network connectivity issues even though my Internet is strong. It might be because I have an I phone 5S and struggling to be compatible with the newer applications but nonetheless it is very very annoying. I ended up just deleting The app.
Live in Naples, Fl
When the Vindy closed, I had no way for news and obits. Very grateful for this information. I’ve been gone since 1979. Enjoy WKBN daily. Thank you, Mame
