While I never minded the banner adds, the pop up adds are extremely annoying. Especially when using an extremely slow connection and trying to stay current on news at home while away working. I can guarantee that I and others will be annoyed as such not to use any of the businesses or services that are thrown in our face by these pop up adds. Several other glitches seem to have been fixed and the app otherwise is far more improved than previous versions.

Great app!!!


I love the new update. Categories are much easier to navigate. Huge improvement from the old app! This app keeps me up to date on everything wilmington! I havnt had any luck with the live video streaming from my iphone, but they post all the news as stories anyway, so i dont have any complaints.

Overall 5/5!!!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Latest update is horrible


I had absolutely no problem at all until the latest update. Now videos won't load half the time and it takes forever for app to load. Fix it or give back the old app please! I may be forced to uninstall at this point.
Just installed another update in hopes that it would get better but it's worse. I can not get news to load most days before it force closes or tells me there is no news. I'm forced to uninstall and find another local news app! Thanks for failing wect
