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.

It’s improving

I like that I receive breaking news, usually several throughout the day. However, I don’t usually get to open each one as they come in. When I do go to open one, it doesn’t always go to the right story and I have a hard time finding the story I am interested in. The ads were particularly annoying. And they were loud. Inappropriate in some settings, so I would ignore the alerts. I almost deleted the app. The last few times I have opened the app - no loud & annoying ads. It’s still a bit sketchy on getting to the right story, but the app has definitely improved.

So disappointed!

I have been watching WPBF app for many years since you first started and this year has been the worst for glitches, advertisements and bugs. I like to read the stories and every story has multiple unfinished sentences. It is like reading half a story. I don’t mind a few advertisements but each story has at least 4 plus the additional 15 second video advertisement. Plus the picture shifts, not sure if it wants to show me a picture on the story or an ad. Also, we have multiple phones in my family that are iPhones and Samsung’s so it isn’t just one operating system affected. I hope you are able to fix these items soon because it really isn’t worth our time to watch half the news.
