It’s actually pretty good

Personally I like the app. A lot of people are giving the worst ratings over ads, but forget that when they watch tv that commercials are ads themselves and take almost 2-3 minutes to go away every 10 mins or so. You guys can’t relax for a thirty second ad? Jeez. I’m from white Plains and honestly a app that’s easy to check the headlines of the top stories and quickly review the weather for the week is amazing. I look, and I move on with my day there’s no reason to click on the video since the title of the video says all you need to know. Good job news 12.

Copy and paste news

Every article is a copy from another publication and most, if not all, have terrible spelling and grammar. Nothing original. It’s worse when trying to view a 1 minute video. You have to sit through a 15-30 second commercial to watch a 5 second highlight. Forget about trying to browse through pictures. You can’t swipe through without swiping to another story. You can’t click through because the forward and reverse buttons are on top of each other.

News articles are not updated daily. I’ve seen the same article highlighted about kid that assaulted some woman in Westport for the last 6 months, while others have been posted and removed. Not defending the kid but it certainly seems like there is an agenda here. Who is editing and curating this “news”?

It’s utterly laughable this app is part of a multi billion corporation. This should supplement the channel, not hinder it or ruin its value and reputation, albeit slim as it is already. There are other, national news organizations that provide better local news coverage than “your local news 12”. It’s also laughable when that is a rebuttal they use when you tell them you want to cancel their service. “You’ll lose channel 12 access and local news coverage of you switch to any other provider.” Good riddance. Utter trash.

New update makes the app pretty much useless. Why would you take away features?! It’s unorganized, hard to navigate, the weather section is just awful, I can’t find the weather radar and other useful weather features, live feature or the traffic updates seem to have vanished, the layout is not user friendly, when you click on an article the video automatically starts to play which is super annoying, it isn’t updated regularly, there is hardly any new content which is probably why old news is mixed in, videos don’t always work and are preceded by endless ads which is inconvenient, and it’s visually unappealing . Also the articles have many spelling and grammar errors. I don’t understand the need to constantly “fix” things and make them virtually unusable when they were decent before. Each update seems to make things worse. I barely use the app now that’s been “updated”. I look elsewhere for Long Island weather, traffic, and news. I wish News 12 would make it easy to access traffic and weather quickly. Now there’s really no point to this app!
