Good for news and weather but......

I’m a big fan of WVLT weather app and so decided to give the news app a try. Its very good at keeping me up to date on those things I am interested in, mainly local and national news and weather conditions. I do have a problem with some of the ads on their app as many of them seem to advertise one thing but when you click on the ad you’re redirected to a site that has nothing to do with what was advertised or even worse is just another advertisement. I also have an issue with the notification system. I set it up for news, weather and closings but continually get notifications for things I’m not interested in. I know I live in Vol country but I’m not a sports fan and have no interest in being bugged by all the notifications on what’s going on with the football team and their players. It was these two issues that caused my rating to be only three stars. Hopefully the two issues I mentioned will be corrected.

Map links missing

Great local news app and I like the fact I'm notified of events near real time. I'm frustrated with the app because the admin takes time to tell you the location of the activity instead of providing a map link which would be most meaningful during a crisis. If there was (God forbid) an active shooter I would immediately know if it was near my location or perhaps avoid a nearby area. Neighborhood intersections identified by street names mean Nothing to the majority of us.

App Malfunctions - Useless - Makes Station Look 2nd Rate

Update: Now when I click on a notification, the app opens with an ad that blackens the entire screen but does not load, so it’s necessary to restart the app and then I’m at the main menu and there’s no sign of the story I wanted to read. What an embarrassment to the WVLT news station.

I get notifications for stories that, when I tap them, either take me to an old, un-updated story with no new details as claimed in the notification or just the main menu with no story matching the notification in sight. I don’t have time for something that wastes my time. There are too many news apps that don’t malfunction to put up with this one. This makes the entire news station look second rate.
