Not the biggest fan
Big fan of channel 8 but not so much the latest update. Love checking the weather to help make sure my child is prepared and dressed appropriately for the day. This version isn't as easy. I enjoyed the quick few taps rather than the scrolling. Will still rely on but missing the old version! 😁😑
Meh - older version was much better
The older version, while dated, was way easier to navigate and the content was communicated much more clearly and simply - was totally adequate and functional. This update is prettier, but just isn't easy to understand ... And WAY WAY too much video vs written content. Pretty close to deleting ... Causes frustration -
Bring back the old version please!!!
This new version is awful. The previous version was very user friendly, the weather section was great! I could access forecasts, alerts, radar easily and quickly. I have switched to another Portland news channel app after using WMTW's since it started. Very disappointing.
