From First Place to Last
WSBT was my first and usually only app for checking the news. Now all I see is the trashy celebrity stuff. I tried clicking on the menu and selecting local news only to find there is none to display. Clearly somebody was so anxious to push this app out that it was not properly tested first.
My guess is that the CBS network pushed this all out. As with everything else, functionality and content takes a back seat to marketing. Clearly the ads are at least as prominent as the few news stories embedded within the ads and the celebrity crap.
I guess we look elsewhere for news stories now. By reading other reviews, there will be many viewers lost.
Deleted app! Can't even open the new version. Been trying for a few days to delete and re-install, still nothing! Guess I'll be switching to 16 news app.
Not fully updated
Many aspects about the updated app do not work - most of it in the weather section. No animated radar - present or future.
