WPRI 12: Eyewitness News - App

This is a great, easy-to-use, and helpful app! With stories in an organized and thorough fashion throughout the app, it is easy to navigate, and there are different tabs for what type of news you would like. There are also videos and images attached as well! I would also recommend the Pinpoint Weather 12 App, as it features extremely helpful and useful features like Radar, Videos, and 7 Day Forecasts. I would give both 5 Stars!

Used to love the app, now not so sure.

1. Hate the ridiculous Providence Auto Body ad EVERY. SINGLE. TIME you open the app. It used to be just once a day and then you wouldn't see it again. I’ll tell you one thing, you aren’t helping them increase business. In fact, because of it being forced in my face I would NEVER go there!!!
My husband and daughter have chosen other local news app WITHOUT ridiculous pop-up ads and deleted WPRI. About to lose me too!!
2. Also dislike that when checking the weather the forecast starts playing on its own....and LOUDLY. It was fine before when I could choose to play it IF i wanted to....not sure why this changed?!?! Many times I just want to read the forecast so I know how to plan for the day. Don’t use it at work anymore since it automatically plays now.....unprofessional.

If these 2 things were fixed I’d give it 5 stars. Until then....not happening!!!

(Can't) "Reportit"

The "Reportit" feature is very frustrating and not user friendly. To start off, you have to scroll way down to find the link. (shouldn't it be up top?) If you take too long entering all the information or, if you have to leave the app briefly, it kicks you out and deletes everything. It also doesn't tell you if your submission was successfully sent. After attaching a video from my library it didn't show the attachment in the box and all the information I had entered just disappeared. No confirmation or anything. So, I have no idea if it went through or not. If you think this review is confusing, try submitting a (story).
