Weather app was great, not this


I loved the WXII Weather app. It would tell me that it was raining nearby, & I had time to roll up my car windows. Severe weather alerts for wherever I was would keep me in the know at work and at home. The news app has always been a mashup of headlines that link to a story and full stories without following a link, with the most useless news alerts. In the current political circus, I don’t need to hear about every stupid announcement. I seldom can find useful weather info on the news app so I have deleted both.

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.

Annoying and useless


I used the weather app, but had to switch to the WXII app. There are way too many ads. Many of the links do not work. You can click on an article, where the first paragraph is showing, but it doesn’t connect to the rest of the article. The page layout is crowded and confusing. It does not look at all professional.

WXII should be embarrassed by this site. It detracts from your reputation. I have started changing over to WFMY and WGHP.
