No Fake News Here

Over the years WLTX has worked very hard to be the number one news reporting station in Columbia. I believe WLTX has achieved that status and is now setting the standard on news, sports and weather information reporting. I applaud WLTX management, staff and the support teams on the superior job they are doing now. Keep on “Doing the Right Thing”.

Needs Work

The app seems to focus on certain types of news and doesn’t show a broad spectrum across the Columbia area. Also, I don’t like the fact that you can’t filter what notifications you would like. My phone is constantly notifying me of every little thing from puppies being born to major weather alerts. The weather alerts I want...the puppies, not so much. You don’t want to turn them off because you might miss something that’s actually important. I tried to reach out via feedback to the developers a week or so before leaving a review, but I found that they don’t respond or even acknowledge receipt of feedback. I just moved here so I hope I can find another news app. I do not recommend this one unless you constantly want notifications.

To many ads

I like the WLTX app but when I need to see the weather or updates on COVID-19, I refuse to sit through an ad about some mobile game. I quickly go to the WIS app. Please shorten the ads if you are going to play them or play the ad after the important video is played. The news is not ‘BREAKING’, or ‘IMPORTANT’ if a 20 second ad for a mobile game is played before the information is given.

If not, I can get my weather and news from another site with less useless ads.

Thank you for your time and consideration of my comment.
