Ratings and Reviews
Average, but not beyond
VUit is great for watching your local news live or on replay. The biggest flaws are that if you use your control panel it’ll pause what’s playing. There’s no multitasking. If your alarm goes off and you swipe it up to dismiss then your program will pause. For that reason I’m giving a 3/5. IMO it’s the best way to watch your local news stations on the go without a cable subscription by far!
Totally irrelevant commercials
Several months ago, Vuit was unbeatable. It was a fantastic app to catch up on your local news, even if it was a replay because you couldn’t watch it live at the time. Now it has completely irrelevant commercials. Who cares about a car lot selling cars 400 miles away and watching the same 6 irrelevant commercials replay over and over? If anything, that’s a real turn-off for viewers. Now if you happen to miss your local news at the live time it’s on, you’re end up watching a news channel somewhere in Tennessee. Why would a viewer in Wisconsin want to watch a random news channel 800 miles away? Whoever is in charge of this app and it’s content needs to step aside and let someone with some common sense take it over and put it back the way it was.
Mostly very, very good.
I use the app to watch Channel 69 news either from my iPad or Apple TV device. However, Channel 69 has not worked on Apple TV for several days, yet the other channels do work. Deleting the app, reinstalling, makes no difference. So I will just use the iPad or mirror it to the TV. Sorry to put that in a review, just see no other place to report it.
Back to the app…it is a good one, and with the above mentioned exception, works very, very well. If I were to improve it I would NOT use the slow time lapse images or vegetation or the parrot during commercial time, but instead would use some screen save type image like colorful changing patterns or similar.
One additional annoyance…sometimes, during commercial break, it freezes up and the you have to out of the program and come back in, then it works again.
The app on this iPad works great, always has, but on the Apple TV device, not so much. To view on TV I will continue to screen mirror from this iPad.
