Disappointing...thinking about deleting this app!


I love WTNH Channel 8 news so much! Such a pity this news app is just not up to par. I want to like it, however the stupid pop-up ad that greets you EVERY single time you load the app from the notification screen! By the time you get to the actual news article, you could have quick-viewed the news on SEVERAL other news apps!

Attention developers:
Please fix this app! Yesterday! Also, weigh the weigh the costs and benefits of the pop up ad you have sprung at the viewer BEFORE you even get to see the news! Really?! Your average rating is: 2.7!



You’d think WTNH would have a good app like some of the other ABC newscasts. Unfortunately that is far from the truth.
1) Alerts pop up for breaking news then the app doesn’t show the article at all.
2) Other articles show on app, when you click on it to load, it takes you to a video screen saying “they’ll be right back” and never plays. No written article, can’t read NOR watch it.
3) Under each written articles, there are phrases from other news, but that’s all to it, you can’t click on it, you can’t see anything other than just that phrase.
Not to count the pop ups. App deleted, gave it a shot, totally not worth it.

Local News


I love WTNH News 8 for a quick review of local news. The app is always up to date so it provides me with just enough info to keep me in the loop. I’m not a huge fan of the television, so it’s not often I will catch the news. Lucky for me, it doesn’t matter. This app gives me all that I need plus more!! Keep up the great work!! Don’t change a thing!!
