Mostly Pleased


I love WXII! I’m mostly please with the app too. However, the app can be frustrating. Whenever I get an alert on my phone for ‘breaking news’, or ‘weather alert’ and I click the alert- it doesn’t take me to the actual place to read more about it. It just takes me to the home page and I have to search for the story. Sometimes the app hasn’t even been updated with the new info that I just got the alert for.

Just OK


The main app is just OK. The traffic does not get updated as it should which is important to those of us on the road every day. The weather area is terrible compared to the WXII weather app that is going away. I would have rated that app with as many stars as I could give! Used that app several times daily for weather & traffic.
I also hate dealing with all those ads! I am now looking for better traffic and weather apps than the WXII main site has.

I grew up with Channel 12. I remember when the new show was only 15 minutes. I am disappointed in the updated app. I have hard time finding the news stories after I have been alerted on my phone. Most of the time, I cannot find the story at all. I hope you can greatly improve the phone app and your web page. The web page is one of the worst I have ever seen.
I M greatly disappointed.
