this app only works in vertical position :-(

App only works in the vertical position?! why??!?! !
I will be deleting this horrible app that only works in a vertical position again. I keep checking in every few months to see if WKRCLocal12 has been updated so I can finally enjoy it (because local 12 is my favorite news station), but every time I open WKRCLocal12...it still will NOT work in the horizontal view! This is very frustrating since in order to enjoy using WKRCLocal12 it needs to sit in my tablet holder in the HORIZONTAL (LANDSCAPE) POSITION! :-( PLEASE UPDATE WKRCLocal12 TO WORK IN THE LANDSCAPE HORIZONTAL POSITION!


Wanted: A News Outlet Overseen by Someone Over 30

So, after having had enough of Fox 19s silliness, I deleted their app. Knowing the local NBC and ABC affiliates were equally as clownish as the aforementioned, I reached for Local12. I don’t know about you, but I, for one, have absolutely had it with anything related to COVID. Anyway, I installed 12s app. hoping something fresh and, dare I say, uplifting would catch my eye. But no, I was let down yet again; the top story was all about new cases in Ohio. Are there any adults in the room? Obviously not.


Like the app, but it’s got a (recent) flaw

I like WKRCLocal12 and find it useful to skim the headlines. The number of ads with a story can be annoying.

The flaw is that the entertainment section of the newsfeed hasn’t updated in over 2 weeks.


It’s not local news anymore

I’ve enjoyed watching the local channel 12 news for a long time and within the last several weeks it no longer plays local news only national news. I tried erasing it and re-download in WKRCLocal12 it says it will place local news but in fact it does not. Very saddened by this because I like the personalities of the newscasters


Why don’t my local 12 app doesn’t work

I did have local 12 news app but for some reason it doesn’t work anymore and I want to know why. I liked getting on WKRCLocal12 and check it out


Lives in a VERTICAL universe 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

Decent local news but only allows vertical view. REALLY ☠️
Does your app programmer drive a Ford Pinto and use a rotary phone. Wake up, Apple rotates why aren’t you smart enough to realize MOST people use the features they have.


UPDATED April 3, 2022——-Still only vertical view…..

Downloaded app once again hoping that it had been updated to include an horizontal view option that I prefer (as all your competitors’ apps offer)…..NOPE- deleted.



Shelia, take your coworkers lead and put some clothes on. It’s winter and you look like a fool.


Deleted App Due to Ads/Surveys

Runs too slow and had ads or surveys after every other news stories. I finally deleted WKRCLocal12 and added another local news channel’s app.


Current update broken

Most recent update is broken. There is no text in any of the news stories. Please push out a fix.



Why there need to be 2 ads in a 5 sentence article is beyond me.


Kyle Inskeep

So glad Kyle is back. I was really worried he wouldn’t return.
Happy homecoming Kyle !


Cast option?

Layout is confusing, and not user friendly. No option to cast to TV. Deleted app.



Not a bad app in terms of layout and content, but there isn’t any audio with the videos!



Very hard to find things that I wanted to see. Deleted.



Can’t find live news. Getting ready to cancel.


Does not rotate

Layout is ok but WKRCLocal12 does not rotate when device is turned sideways


No sound on live broadcast with iPhone app




Terrible news app


No sound

How do I get sound on my local 12 WKRC news app?


Notifications and General Design

The notifications I receive are good; however, when you click on it, WKRCLocal12 opens to the page where all stories are displayed. Using my iPhone 5, I should have the ability to simply click on the news alert (push notification) and it simply redirects me to that story - not provide me with a list of all current articles. Also, please fix the general design. It seems cheap and it's not very user friendly. On a positive note: I absolutely love Local 12 and watch it daily. I guess I will continue to use WCPO's app.


Great, but a tip of advice...

Maybe in winter they could send school and business closing notifications every time there is a new one. Beats going into WKRCLocal12 and look for yourself. Hope the WKRC-TV station hears this if they are the ones who make these updates. Consider this idea ;)


A Joke!

I expect this layout was suggested by the CEO's high school child who has never been told No.
I can over look this to get a news story I'm interested in.
So, a few days ago I click a video. The ad pops up first(someone has to pay for the lights). The ad has a timer set for :15, this is what burns my chaps. Everyone in the known world expects 15 sec until the story starts. Try one maybe a minute. I surely didn't count. In today's world you delete and try elsewhere. Bye channel 12!
