Customer Reviews

Not bad, could be better. - Update 7//16

Have had the app since earlier versions. Current version is slow to load and crashes often. Do not like the new format to get to the news. Also HATE the fact that they post "news" in the alerts notification. Should be for weather emergencies, Amber Alerts and traffic emergencies only in my opinion. If I want a sports score, I will look at the news or sports sections. Streaming works intermittently on iphone. - Update - Still slow to load and crashes often. Alarm goes off, crash, receive text, crash.
UpDate again: 40 second load time in wifi in this day and age is nuts. Still slow to load, call-crash, text-crash. And getting worse with news. 4 news stories nationally? Really? That is all? Time to delete and use google news and yahoo news and the local paper. Might be faster.

Updated wbir

It is a good update, however, I liked the weather in the previous version the best. Also, would like to see the barometric pressure listed. In fact, with the elaborate update, I am surprised it would not be listed.

Loading is a problem. Sometimes it takes an hour or longer for me to get in. It is like there is not enough memory to let everyone log in that is wanting to be on at the same time. It will let me in other times but boots me off. I don't have this problem with other apps.

Love WBIR app

I love the app. I find it to be very user friendly. I love the notifications and the weather. Thanks for making it available. I stay very busy and this is a good and quick way to stay informed.
