Ratings and Reviews
Reliable and informative!
I have lived in this area for 11 years now and I have never been disappointed in the information that the Channel 13 WMAZ news team has shared with my family and they have kept us safe with the warnings of upcoming severe weather and given us time to prepare and believe me, we have come so very close to disaster many times 😱😱. Thank you all at WMAZ Channel 13 News
I have the same issue as a lot of other people, when I first go to the app it brings up an ad that says “Swipe Up” only you can’t swipe up. There’s no way to close out the ad and the app is frozen. I force close and try to re-open only to have the same issue again. I went through this about 6 times the other day and finally gave up.
With that being said, when I can actually get into the app I love it. It’s how I keep up with news and events around middle GA. I just wish it worked properly.
Commercials hinder this app
App takes power away from you and forces you to watch commercials when you want to read certain articles and you can't back out of it unless you hit the home button. The webpage is even worst, a big commercial takes up all of your screen when you just want to read the headlines. Other than that the app is stable, articles are updated frequently, doesn't crash like it did before. Some articles are video and don't have words. Overall the app needs improvement 2/5
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
