How I get the local news!!
I don’t like watching the news around my boys anymore. I don’t want them worried about things they are too young to even think about so I watch it on my phone via the WHIO app. I really like it except in the mornings if you use the listen button you get the radio station instead of the news that is on tv. Other than that it’s great!
Fixes just change what is broken!
The programmers did a fix sometime back that required a somewhat long press to open a category. Too long, and the press did not work. Too short, and the press did not work. It took some time, but it was possible to learn how long to press.
OK, so they fixed that one, but you could not go back to the story list. The back feature took you back to the category list, and you had to scroll through the stories to find where you were to select the next story you wanted to read.
OK, this fix restores the capability to go back to the story list, which is now blank, until you attempt to scroll that list, at which time, you are taken back to the top of the list, once again having to scroll through the stories to find where you were.
This fix is no fix.
Through the myriad of these errors (and others) I have not commented. However, this parade of bugs tells me that the authors are not bothering to test their software before foisting it on us.
(Note: This comment is from someone who used to write software for a living.)
Poorly designed, doesn’t function when it’s actually needed
My area has been through several big storms in the last couple months. And the only consistent thing about them is that the app will spam ads at you when trying to get the forecast during an emergency and oftentimes the app will crash in general. The fact that the sponsors for this app thought it would be a good idea to continue ads during an emergency and not provide fixes to app crashing updates is just sad. To those responsible for this app (if read) you need to address this. I know now that this app cannot provide time sensitive information when making decisions in a potentially deadly situation, but others may not.
