Ratings and Reviews
Good improvements but needs a little more
I’ve use this app on and off for quite some time and I’ve seen the improvements over the different versions, which is great. I like the fact that I can see the live forecast & the CT news coverage. I could be exercising, on the go and still receive the news... I love it. One of the improvements I wish you could make is a better way to get to that daily live news coverage. The main menu says live breaking news which is really for special events/breaking news but I have to click around to get to the daily live news coverage, which wasn’t always the case in older versions. Another request I would suggest is the availability to use the app on Apple TV. Other than that thank you for the app!
Disappointing...thinking about deleting this app!
I love WTNH Channel 8 news so much! Such a pity this news app is just not up to par. I want to like it, however the stupid pop-up ad that greets you EVERY single time you load the app from the notification screen! By the time you get to the actual news article, you could have quick-viewed the news on SEVERAL other news apps!
Please fix this app! Yesterday! Also, weigh the weigh the costs and benefits of the pop up ad you have sprung at the viewer BEFORE you even get to see the news! Really?! Your average rating is: 2.7!
Swing and a miss
I had to rate according to how quickly it becomes frustrating after opening the app. I get several notifications per day of breaking news stories, and that’s really the most helpful feature of the app. However, when you try to open one of the notifications to read more, the article isn’t there. It just brings you to some video stream that is slow to buffer, and is not talking about the news story it just notified you of. Looking forward to an update that makes the end user experience more enjoyable. If you folks there at 8 paid some company top dollar to create this for you, you were ripped off. If designing this app was your kid’s project in computer class, then it was a great start, kudos to the little ones because its was better than I could make, but it still needs more tweaking to be professional.
