Still some snags....but overall dependable
The app is my news source. Overall very pleased. I’ve had a couple of occasions to contact WFSB 3 when the app’s had issues, and they’ve been right on it, and even responded to me. They just need to monitor it more frequently, or ask users to contact them. One major complaint though, and this is actually more about website...inability to comment on stories.
Not liking that AT ALL! Channel 3 is better than that, (I hope!).
WAY too many useless push notifications
The app is okay. It’s a little clunky, but I really only care about “latest news”, and that’s easy to navigate to and use. WFSB has great CT news coverage. My huge negative for the app is that it sends what seems like 700 notifications per day and all hours of the night. I know you can turn them off, but it’s a news app - I do want to see a push notification if there’s a breaking news story, or an accident on a major roadway, etc. They do send those types of notifications, but the problem is they also send crap like “Will you need an umbrella tomorrow? Watch the report later!”. Do they really think anyone wants to see that type of push notification? They literally send garbage like that all through the day and night. They also seem to push every news story, including routine articles. I have some national news apps, and they only push something if it’s a huge story. I get maybe one alert every 3 or 4 days from those apps, and it’s for legitimate need-to-know news. The only problem is they are national and of course aren’t going to tell me if there was just a major accident on 95 that has a road closed. WFSB will, but to be honest, you’ll probably miss it because it will be between a “watch live at 6 to see if fluffy got adopted” and “Find our what one Connecticut resident thinks about the changing leaves. Open the app to learn more”.
WFSB with voiceover
I have been using the WFSB be app with my iPhone and voice over for about two months. I am totally blind and would like to see some improvements in the app. For example, I would like to see a verbal description of weather. Obviously there is no way I can use the weather radar but, I do not see much description of weather Doppler. I know I am only one person but there were many blind people who watch you. There are other things that could use some improvement to. There are many things that don't work properly with voiceover. I'm not trying to complain, I'm just making you aware of things that need to happen. After reading some of the reviews, I also would like to add that I to have a problem accessing live feeds. Sometimes they come up very nicely others they don't. I have a very good Internet connection here and I always use Wi-Fi. For the most part, I do like the app.
