Bayou mom

I have always been a strictly Wwl TV watcher. I've only had their app for many years. But I recently explored the WVUE Fox 8 news app and I have been converted! It is far superior! You actually get to read real unbiased news! Wwl TV/App is completely biased. They only give you news for things that they want you to read. Thank you Fox 8 news for reporting all of it! You believe that your viewers are intelligent who can make their own decisions about the news related items.⚜

Needs a lot of work/extremely aggravating


When you open the app, it goes straight to an advertisement that sits there for a few seconds then allows you to exit. Most of the time when you click the x, it takes you to safari and tries to load the Fox News website. You have to go back to the app to access it.

The push notifications seem like they just want to make sure you know that you have the app. If you do click on the notification, (and after you go through the previous complaint) the story is nowhere to be found. You have to dig through the app to find it...

I've had the app for awhile but I'll be deleting it now.

New Version....(sigh)


Well... I was going to raise my stars to 2 stars after they fixed the video from changing from horizontal to vertical but... alas... the app now crashes at random in the middle of a video or at the end of a video.

They are still not updating their video segments much and instead of news its all of their "Fluff" stories. (whos having a fund raiser, how to cook something, silly junk) Barely any news.

I would also like to see some function that allowed me to start the first video and it play all of them in the order they are listed as well as being able to just select one story to view.
