Union Power Ads RUIN APP


I primarily use the application for the video portion of the news. I spend most time multitasking while watching and listening to the videos. Every single video, every minute and second of the day, starts with the union power ad and it is always the same one. I have it memorized! The option to skip the ad sometimes appears but when it does, you can I always press it to skip the ad. It literally makes me want to pull my hair out and scream I hear it so much! If you do not have the WSOC Weather app trying to view the weather on this app is nonexistent. Do you get those? Yes but it is the bare basics and as I said previously, the Union Power apps ruin it. I honestly have started using WBTV now for the most of my news needs.



I have no time to watch videos, unless the video itself is the subject of the report. If I’m on my mobile, I’m MOBILE and time is limited. Give me the gist of the story in a few paragraphs. Correct grammar and spelling would be greatly appreciated. Where education in these areas is lacking, there are apps to help with literary challenges.

Dropped from 2 stars to 1. I first started using this app to allow me to quickly check current events and , and read a quick paragraph or so about it. This morning, EVERY SINGLE STORY OF INTEREST IS A VIDEO with the same annoying ad. If I had time to watch videos, I’d just sit down and watch the news broadcast on TV. This app no longer has any value to me.

Middle of the road - needs to do better


This news app fulfills some basic news needs but it maintains news articles for too long after the event occurred. The articles are not set for time and date. The weather section is adequate but not nearly as effective as other apps available. The traffic section is at best hard to understand, there is no legend to the chart.
