Slow to load, and streaming video locks up App loads slowly. Basic design of app is good enough, it's reasonably easy to navigate, and has good variety of content of Ch. 11 News/Weather/Sports. But there's a major problem with streaming video in the app. I had installed the app primarily to watch livestreaming of newscasts, and that worked OK for several months. But in last few weeks (Mar.-Apr. '15), the streaming feature is totally dysfunctional. It freezes or locks up every 15-20 seconds, and generates a strange error message ("Your OS does not support this feature - you should update your Android."). My phone and tablet both have Android KitKat, adequate processors/RAM, and both work fine with other streaming services. I don't know whether the problem is with the app or the server end - but at present, it just doesn't work. Also, one annoyance: The app automatically generates phone notifications for news alerts (usually of minimal interest), and it does NOT include a setting to turn those off. That's very poor design. Fortunately, the Android system has a workaround: You can disable the notifications by going into the phone's system settings, then Apps > WPXI, and uncheck the "notification" box.
Pretty good.. Love the live news cast..dont like how theres no notification settings..and periodically throughout the day i get" wpxi app has stopped" other then that not bad..keep it up
It was good, but Lately when my mother and I would go to the live broadcast; all we get is a blackscreen for 10minutes. Then, the broadcast would play. Like, not even a minute in to the broadcast it would skip until right before the advertisements. During the advertisements are plqying, there's no skipping. And it's continuing.
Would be nice when there's a notification and you go to it, it would show you that information instead of everything but.
Great job WPXI ! This is BY FAR the best Pittsburgh TV station news app. It provides local, national and world headlines plus high quality live streams of the stations news broadcasts. To the complainers : If you don't know how to turn off notifications via your device then, shame on yinz!
I haven't open the app in a while and it always says wpxi app has stoped its not a very good app so if you could make it better I would like it
