Generally great.

Wish traffic info was available. Ads jump over the night time silence and wake up my husband. Don’t mind the ads and usually look at them unless there is sound at night. Then I have to skin the whole story. I do like the weather and radar being available first. When I want weather fast I come here. And I like the more local news separate from the national. Apparently I’ve done the survey before as it won’t accept any of my four usual nicknames. Well, it just rejected 2manynicknames.

With giving the news correct and prompt. Keep putting the news out there and along with others I would like to have LESS ADS.
The ads are too long at the beginning of news briefs. I understand the ads help pay for this luxury but a little shorter would be great.
Get me to the story and then the ad.

Great app with great content

The WLKY app is great if I need to know what’s going on and I don’t have a lot of time but it’s also great because it keeps me appraised of everything that I need to know about from traffic to weather to our communities. Upcoming events recent happenings it’s all here thanks for doing a great job
