I’ve been receiving notices that the WVTM Weather app is going away in January. That app is my go-to weather info companion and I use it many times a day both here in Birmingham and when I travel out of state for work. I think it’s great!

I understand that the weather features will be combined into the WVTM news app site, which I also use as my news source at least a couple times a week, but not nearly as often as your weather app. My preference would be to keep them separate.

However you combine those two I am concerned that I’ll have to fumble my way around your news site to get to the weather. If you’re going to take away my direct-connect with the WVTM Weather, please, please do all you can to make the link obvious and placed on the first screen I pull up.

WVTM is the best. Keep up the good work.

BUGGY APP!! Good local reporting. Biased National news.

This is the only available local app with full coverage I can watch on the go otherwise I would watch another.
Best weather coverage and good anchors and fairly good local news coverage. However very obviously biased since Hearst took over. Consistently critical of Republicans and Trump. Shamelessly doesn’t make any attempt at balance or real news. Guess I’m old enough to remember when the news was actually about news.
The app itself has always been buggy, but lately I can only get to the first animated commercial, then it hangs up. I just want to get through the full weather report and and the low down on COVID. I can’t stomach your political crap!

I love the information you provide daily. The articles are interesting and timely. I like the option to read the articles with the option to cancel the adds. I rarely listen to videos because I can read articles at a faster rate. Thank you for providing the printed stories on many of your articles. I appreciate the headlines so I can immediately review the stories of interest. Overall I am extremely pleased with your app and the news cover stories! Thanks for the great information!!
