What's New in Version 64.24.00031610
All new design
When something is good, why does it change?
Got family members scattered all through East Tennessee. So living in Florida, I figured WATE was a great way to keep informed on events in the E. Tennessee area. So I downloaded this app about a year ago. The last update has really messed things up. When you click on a news story. After nearly a paragraph it prompts you to press an icon to continue reading. So it takes you to another page. Then in about a few sentences later another icon pops up with the same message. Once you acknowledge that button the advertisement disappears. I understand advertisements is what keeps the app free. But, going through all this may not be worth the time.
Did you conduct a usability study?
I shouldn’t have to click three times to read a full story, which appears to be the case with the new version. Highly annoying, enough such that I may revisit using the other local news apps.
From best to worst/ Scratch that...
Until the recent update WATE 6 had been the best Knoxville news app. Blah,blah, blah... Updated: Upon further review, this app still has the best selection of local stories.
