Ratings and Reviews
Crashes far too frequently
This app is pretty terrible to be honest(except in the seldom instances that it does want to work properly), if I wanna check the app for local news? Crash. If I just get a notification for a news story and wanna check it immediately? Crash. Ceased reading up on news for a quick second to multitask another app but plan to return? Crash. Crash. I’m crashing! I’m crashing! Good lord they really need to adjust the amount of bugs in this app. Due to these minor mishaps that can easily be fixed it causes the app as a whole to be virtually unusable. I’m better off just watching my local news on television than trying to make sense of this apps complete incompetence.
So, the only reason I got this app was to see if my school had a delay or was closed. I changed all the settings so only closings and delays were to be a notification, but I get most, if not all, of the notifications. I also have a problem with when I check the closings and delays it shows my school as a delay or closing, but I don’t get a text notification about it for about 2 hours later. For example, today my school is closed, I only knew this because my dad texted me, not because the app did. I got that text 2 hours later, so if my dad didn’t text me, I would be standing, waiting for the bus for a while. Please fix this.
Why even have this app?
A lot of the most important information is routed OUT of the application forcing me to use safari to listen to WHIO Radio, telling me to listen for a specific element which has ALREADY BEEN DISCUSSED and have to scroll to find. I didn't click to listen to the radio! Half of what’s written into the application to summarize the reports contains misspelled words, poor grammar and the like. How hard is it to proofread before pressing submit? Above all, the app will give you an option to watch a video for some of the stories, but not before listening to an advertisement that you can’t mute or skip.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
