Too many bugs
I want to like this app, I really do. But 1 out of 2 links takes me to the wrong page. On the front screen right now there is a Closings and Delays article as well as a Breaking News article. The Breaking News article has a lead-in of text making it seem like I can click on that article to see the whole thing. But all it does is take me to the Closings and Delays page!
Similar problem if you click on the News link at the top of the page within the app. From there you can choose Top News and it brings up a bulleted list of articles. But no matter which one I tap on, it brings up some other article instead - and all the links go to that same article!
Most of the articles are good info if you can actually get the article you want. Fix these technical problems and the app is 4 stars.
App quit working consistently
I like getting news from WTOP, but recently it won't show me anything except the blue intro page. Sometimes it works, but often it gets stuck on the intro page. Also, when it does open fully, the links sometimes take me to incorrect articles, lead-in text doesn't match the actual article, and pics and videos appear halfway on the screen (so you often can't see the whole pic or video). Very disappointing since I rely on the radio station for weather, traffic, & news reports (but I can't count on the app giving me any of those reports). I expect better from WTOP.
I love listening to WTOP on the radio so naturally I downloaded the app. For the first couple of days it worked great but now it won't load. When I click on an article it takes me to something completely different, when I hit the back arrow, it closes the app. It started more frequently lately. I don't think anyone manages the app. It's really sub par.
