Ratings and Reviews
Ads are annoyingly, more national & global perspective needed
I like this app in principle with two exceptions. (1) when you tap on a story, you must watch advertisements for at least several seconds. It is so annoying. (2) when I get a push feed on my phone or pad, sometimes I can’t even find the story on this app. Overall, I think this station on tv spends way too much time on the weather, but maybe that is what people want to see. Not me, I have a iPhone with weather alerts. The app getting better with news content pertaining to national, state, and local news. There is almost no international news. You need to report more news about the three branches of national government and what is going on in Tallahassee, coverage is better than a year ago so 4 stars.
All the news and weather I need
WPBF app gives me all the news and weather I need in an easy to navigate app. I would prefer more substance to the articles, but realistically I don’t have time to read all the details...so they give me enough info to know what is happening in the community. The weather forecasters are the best! I rely on WPBF for the most accurate weather forecast.
The only good thing about this app is that you do get notifications of current news/events while they are happening. However- you can't find the event once you go into the app.
You are really only getting a headline once you find the story. Barely even the highlights of the story. And my goodness there are so many spelling and grammar errors it’s like reading a 1st grade paper.
They only want to be the first to report - accuracy and detail is not a factor. Also - they have no sensitivity to victims privacy.
And they don't update the stories or the weather. Way too much old news.
