Quality news, but ads are annoying and proofing needs work.

Texas Mystery fan

Now there are almost as many ads as there are relevant news stories. Please don’t start having them come on when we click a story where we must see some of the ad before we can skip the ad and go to the real news.

I use this app to view the news almost very morning and every night before going to sleep. I trust the information I get from it. However, most of the news categories have stories which belong in another area. Some stories stay for a week or more past their relevance. Surely, there is more real Texas news than what goes on in our area. I'd like to see news from around here the state.

Please proof read, folks. I know television news is oral, but if you're going to put it in print, then it should be proofread. Surely your reporters use better grammar than I see. In addition, proof reading is essential. Otherwise typos will become an accepted part of our writing.
Faithful reader.

Losing its appeal!


WFAA is my favorite local news & weather for my area and this app has always been a good one. However, over the last few weeks, every time I click on the app, I'm immediately redirected to App Store to be be persuaded to buy whatever app is being promoted. It is so frustrating to have to get out of the App Store and go back to the WFAA app. If this continues, I will be deleting the WFAA app. I'm using it to be informed of news and weather in my area, not to shop!!!

Update, November 30, 2017:
Well, the problem I complained about 2 years ago went away at some point, but....
It’s baaaaaaack!!!!!!! Trying to read anything is impossible because the App Store app keeps high jacking the WFAA app. Every time you try to go back to the WFAA page it’s instantly replaced with the App Store page with some stupid ad for a game it’s pushing. I DON’T go to read the news so I can find GAMES to play on my phone for f***s sake!!!! My attention span doesn’t instantly shift to “I wonder what games there are to play on my phone?” when I originally intended to see what the weather was going to be like or follow up on some serious local news story.
FIX IT!!!!!!!!!!

Breaking news to whom?


I've only ever watched WFAA and consider them an amazing source of local news, but I finally deleted the app today because of the push alerts.
We don't consider updates on Zeke Elliot's suspension or the death of Hugh Hefner to be alert worthy. Seriously, an alert at 11pm to let us know Hef passed, not urgent! We've been sent more alerts about the Zeke Elliot suspension drama than the 3 year old missing in Richardson for a week.
I also agree with other reviewers that within the app the news is not updated and old stories linger for too long.
Pushing alerts about actual breaking news like inclement weather, major traffic delays, or anything that might impact my safety would be preferred.
