WATE News app Review
I love the app & getting all the minute by minute news stories, but I work night shift & the alert prompt sound is rather annoying when you r trying to sleep during the day, However I love all the WATE News/Weather Team & wouldn’t get my local new or weather from any other source. Very accurate & reliable. Love them all. No other weather man I trust and love to hear weather reports from more than Matt Hinkin, with Ken Weathers with the weather coming in 2nd. For the news, love Lorie Tucker, Kristen, and Bo. Always so professional yet friendly down to earth with a Great Love for East Tennessee. No other channel for news & weather in Knoxville for me.
Just my opinion.
I’ve have been a Channel 6 loyal view since 93. It’s the only news in Knoxville I will watch. Love all the personalities. I would like to mention something I just watched on the news cast. You team was at the Smokies Stadium filming a wonderful story on the Make A Wish Organization. As I was watching I noticed that while speaking to the father the fans were standing and the national anthem was being sung. Please as a Proud American and a mother of a Army soldier and a veteran KPD Officer please ask your team members to pay attention to this and stop the interview till the anthem is finished. Thank you for taking your time to read this.
Advertising, power hungry app
We have three stations for local news. Be sure to skip this one for sure. Open the app and the first thing your presented with is an ad. Once you clear that and open a category like news, after the very first story you'll find yet another ad. I understand the need to make money but don't litter them throughout the news stories. If you're looking for an app that'll waste your time, this is for you. If you need an app that sends you pointless notifications about the Vols being arrested and not something important like traffic backups on the interstate, this is for you. If you want a power hungry app to drain your battery, this is for you. On a plus note, it deletes pretty quickly. And once removed all of the negatives I mentioned will go away.
When something is good, why does it change?
Got family members scattered all through East Tennessee. So living in Florida, I figured WATE was a great way to keep informed on events in the E. Tennessee area. So I downloaded this app about a year ago. The last update has really messed things up. When you click on a news story. After nearly a paragraph it prompts you to press an icon to continue reading. So it takes you to another page. Then in about a few sentences later another icon pops up with the same message. Once you acknowledge that button the advertisement disappears. I understand advertisements is what keeps the app free. But, going through all this may not be worth the time.
6, Six, is one better than a perfect five.
23 years ago we retired to East Tennessee. Having to learn about new TV stations and people involved in them, I checked all the local ones. I quickly decided Channel 6, WATE was my choice.....for news, for weather, for everything. And they remain so to this day. Earlier this year the cable company was in some sort of money dispute and I was without Channel 6 for right at 2 months. It was like losing my best friend. Channel 6 is my choice as number 1.
The only thing I would like to see you change is to put Matt Hinkin back on the evening time slot. I have watched him for years. He is an icon at the station. And since he has shared his story about his diagnosis of Parkinson’s, he can be a source of hope and encouragement to others. The evening time slot would give him greater exposure to those also dealing with the disease.
WATE is the only news app I will ever have on my phone. I tried them all, and only WATE keeps up with updates..... also not too many at a time. I hate the updates on the other east TN news app that (seems to me) happen everyday. Also upset that AT&T Uverse bumped WATE off the air. Go WATE!
Very disappointed in WATE. They’ve covered stories and where most likely pressed for time on running it, failed to confirm facts before running the story. This damages people’s lives, families, and careers. We used to love watching WATE. But now watch another local news station. Because they didn’t run a certain story about some dear friends of ours. Probably because they didn’t want to report false information. Much respect for the integrity of WVLT.
If I could give 0 stars I would. I love getting my news from this app especially since I can’t watch the news every night at 6 and by 11 I’m in bed. Here lately every time I start reading a story, the app will freeze and at times it will restart its self. It’s getting old and I’m about to the point of deleting the app and going with another local news app.
We get it...
I hate the pop up window saying this was brought to me by children’s. I get it. It doesn’t have to be there every. Freaking. Time. I open the app.
Did you conduct a usability study?
I shouldn’t have to click three times to read a full story, which appears to be the case with the new version. Highly annoying, enough such that I may revisit using the other local news apps.
Absolutely thank you for your news I have only my phone no tv so you help me in so many ways thank you all so much may God bless you all🙏🙏
I enjoy keeping up with local news and would give WATE 5 stars instead of 3 if they would not insert liberal views into the news stories. I want to keep abreast of what’s going on in my area but I don’t wish to have political opinions, whether Right or Left, included. JUST NEWS!!!
Weather is great but news could be better in description of what happens
