Dear WESH,

I love your station, and I go to your app first for my local news when I’m away from the house. Please, please stop running ads when there’s an emergency, such as BAD WEATHER. During Hurricane Irma, I needed updates, and freaking everything I tried to see cost me minutes of previous time watching advertisements! I uninstalled your app after that for months as a protest—I’m sure you didn’t care that you list ONE user... but please. Use common sense.

Click on notification to not be brought to that article

This app is average and the main problem is when you receive a notification about a particular article in Notification Center and click the notification, the app is merely opened. You are not taken to that specific article. This makes the app much less useful to me. If I click the notification I want to be taken to that article. Most every app that displays something in Notification Center takes you to that particular subject when the app opens.

Edit: There have been several app updates since I wrote the review a while ago. The issue has not been fixed. When you click on a push notification you are brought to the main page and not the specific article the push was for. The app is now uninstalled. I can not think of another app where you select the notification and are not directed to the specific article. Bye WESH 2 news.

Unnecessary Notifications and Bloated Ads 👎

Used to use this app as my first source of news. Have noticed most of the content is extremely negative with very little positive news. Local news text alerts are horrifying, babies being mailed to death... I had to remove alerts because (although I know bad things unfortunately do happen) I can’t take hearing such horrifying news every single day!
I have also given up on streaming news because the ads are so terribly long, by the time the news loads... the spacex rocket has already launched or I have lost interest in trying to see the news and moved onto something else.
Please bring back a more user friendly app for your long time viewers who just want relevant news that may affect us in our area!
