Used to love the app, now not so sure.


1. Hate the ridiculous Providence Auto Body ad EVERY. SINGLE. TIME you open the app. It used to be just once a day and then you wouldn't see it again. I’ll tell you one thing, you aren’t helping them increase business. In fact, because of it being forced in my face I would NEVER go there!!!
My husband and daughter have chosen other local news app WITHOUT ridiculous pop-up ads and deleted WPRI. About to lose me too!!
2. Also dislike that when checking the weather the forecast starts playing on its own....and LOUDLY. It was fine before when I could choose to play it IF i wanted to....not sure why this changed?!?! Many times I just want to read the forecast so I know how to plan for the day. Don’t use it at work anymore since it automatically plays now.....unprofessional.

If these 2 things were fixed I’d give it 5 stars. Until then....not happening!!!

WPRI 12: Eyewitness News - App

RJ Parrillo

This is a great, easy-to-use, and helpful app! With stories in an organized and thorough fashion throughout the app, it is easy to navigate, and there are different tabs for what type of news you would like. There are also videos and images attached as well! I would also recommend the Pinpoint Weather 12 App, as it features extremely helpful and useful features like Radar, Videos, and 7 Day Forecasts. I would give both 5 Stars!

Bring back the old!


Do not like the interface on this new version. Previous version so much easier to navigate. Old version you could see dates of articles, not on this version. Liked how they listed articles on left and you old choose which to open. No longer possible with new version. Definitely a major step down from previous. Guess I will not be using this app anymore. Here comes NBC10! Update May2018. Came back to the app with this new update. It stinks. Please please get rid of Providence Auto body. Will never go there now. Also can’t watch a video, constant loop of ads. Like the article set up but have tried multiple times to watch a video to no avail.
