Ratings and Reviews
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.
Great Local News
Through the years, I have been accustomed to using Channel 8 news’ rival station Channel 10 WBIR. The last few years, I switched to Local 8 WVLT. The switch has been great! The news is great, but for all your weather followers, WVLT gets it right way more so than all the others in the area! Plus, WVLT is the Vol Sports channel! If you want to receive the best in News, Weather, and Sports, I suggest using WVLT over all the rest. This app is much quicker and better than the rival news stations as well!
