WTRF Channel 7
I’m very sorry that Dish has chosen not to carry WTRF any longer. We have lost a local channel with a lot of programs that we liked to see every day. Also, Dish is charging us the same amount for less service. This is very unfair to their customers and NO way to run a business. We are looking at other cable or satellite providers.
Good app, bad news quality
Living in Wheeling, WTRF is my primary news source and usually like it better than rival WTOV. The app is great! The news quality however is a different story. It feels like they just copied the script for news broadcasts! This leads to the articles leaving out a lot of details. As I said, the app was amazing, but I would like a live stream feature for live broadcasts when you are out of town, and maybe even of the protests going on in Wheeling right now as I’m writing this! I also miss the traffic map. Overall, it’s a decent way to get news from the tri-state area.
Missing Traffic Section
This app is tolerable at best for local news. I use it when I want to check local stories and up until recently to see traffic conditions. Recently, the traffic section of the app appears to have disappeared despite no updates to this app in the last six months. This traffic section was very helpful. WTOV 9’s app has a traffic section. In addition, this app has not had an update to its user interface and experience in years. Perhaps, you need to consider hiring a local app developer who you can talk to face-to-face and who can interact with the local community to make this app relevant again.
No Details Provided
The developer will be required to provide privacy details when they submit their next app update.
