App is normally great but about a week ago the weather portion stop displaying all digits...(if the forecast is "41°" on the bottom hourly section, it instead only shows the "4" on the top/current time's temp). Also, there are WAY too many ads! I often go get the actual story somewhere else bc there's so many ads in this app it's insane and impossible to get the actual story sometimes.

The videos can't be watched horizontal, you are stuck with a small picture. They are lagy and take forever to load. When you try to swipe up or down for the rest of the story, it navigates you to the next story you are not interested in. Overall the WFAA app is very frustrating. I prefer the other local news apps.

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.
