Just show me the news!!

Big D n ky

Every time I have open this app. I have to watch commercial after commercial. It will not let me skip through the commercials. It shows the same commercial over and over. I’m done. All I wanted to do was see the local news.

Notifications and General Design


The notifications I receive are good; however, when you click on it, the app opens to the page where all stories are displayed. Using my iPhone 5, I should have the ability to simply click on the news alert (push notification) and it simply redirects me to that story - not provide me with a list of all current articles. Also, please fix the general design. It seems cheap and it's not very user friendly. On a positive note: I absolutely love Local 12 and watch it daily. I guess I will continue to use WCPO's app.

Great, but a tip of advice...


Maybe in winter they could send school and business closing notifications every time there is a new one. Beats going into the app and look for yourself. Hope the WKRC-TV station hears this if they are the ones who make these updates. Consider this idea ;)
