This app used to be great. However, for the past 6 - 7 months, the app crashes and closes when I try to look at the weather tab. Doesn't matter if I click the weekly forecast or radar... I can just go to the weather tab and the app crashes withing 15 seconds. Every time. Without fail. If they ever fix it, I will edit my review. Like I said, it used to be a great app so this is very disappointing.

Used to be great but the last 2 updated have left it unusable. First they made it impossible to find stories outside of the top 7 they deemed important. Then this week the updated has caused daily crashes, VERY slow loading, and rather than a list on news stories (recent) or headlines with thumbnails (previous) the image for the story takes up almost the entire screen on the front page so you have to scroll far just to see what news you have access to. Uninstalling.

I just uninstalled the app. I'd had the app installed for awhile. The only reason I installed it was because I wanted access to weather and traffic. The sports access was a plus. They were the only 3 notifications that I have enabled. I kept getting notifications for anything and everything that they (WFAA) decided was important. It's been worse since Covid and the campaigning started. You can turn off whatever you like but you will still get notifications on everything.
