Awesome app

I give it a 10 out of 10 even though you can rate it 5 stars because by downloading the 7 WKBW news app you are able to go on and check up on the last news on your phone/ iPad that you can watch anywhere when you are not at home and are connected to WI-FI. I personally love this news app because it helps keep me updated on what’s going on.

Excellent up to date news coverage

I think the channel 7 news app is the best. Very easy to read the complete story. Covers a lot of stories on there page. Much better than the other 2 local channels. I will admit I do not offend watch channel 7 on tv but I really enjoy there coverage of the news in the app. Keep up the good work!

Up to date news

Compared to another news app I have channel 7 far exceeds them. I’m looking for up to date news. I don’t want to open the app and see news that is days old. Also when I get a notification I want to be able to see and read about it. Again my other app often states unable to stream at this time. Keep up the good work it’s evident you have hired someone who knows what they are doing.
