Ratings and Reviews

Newest version doesn't work on my older iPad.

Very Confusing and Ad based


This app is very confusing. You receive a notification on your phone about an event they think is important to inform you about. It tells you to go the app for more information. When you go to the app you are first greeted by advertising. I guess the event I was notified about wasn't that important. Once you click out of the advertisement, you need to decide where "more information" is located. You click that area and try to find it. If I'm notified about a situation and told to go the app for more information I do not want to be greeted by advertising or hunt for the issue. When that occurs, I close the app and go elsewhere for the information I need.

The app quits FREQUENTLY during streaming. VERY frustrating. I find it VERY interesting that Charlie Sykes and Jeff Wagner whine about the government website and how it should never crash and it should be working 100% if the time. I guess you shouldn't throw stones when you live in a glass house. 620 WTMJ's app is FAR from perfect!

Too many ads


Way too many ads. The ads show up when you open the app. Ads show up in the middle of the news content. It's very annoying. I've never clicked on a single ad nor have I even looked at them. If you are an advertiser on this app, you're wasting your money. I now find your company annoying.
UPDATE: There are now even more ads that show up. Now they are pop-ups where if you're not careful, you'll end up clicking the add and leaving the app.
Update on redesign. This is a horribly designed app. A 1st grader could have done a better job. It's not easy to navigate. Blogs and news are mixed together. When an alert is sent out the link takes you to a notifications page and not the actual story. Honestly 620... Just start over. Fire the company that ripped you off for this design. Find a company that will be worth the money you spend. Your app is useless.
