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.
Too Many Glitches
First off, the WCNC app isn’t available on Firestick like all the other local networks. I’m only able to watch the live news segments on my phone or iPad which CONSTANTLY just stops playing and exits out of the app altogether several times during the live feed and I have to go back in each and every time. None of the other local apps do that AND I can watch them on my smart tv. Hopefully, someone will look into these issues and adjust accordingly.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
