Just okay (for now) There have been SO MANY typos in the articles in the app lately. It has just been embarrassing. Some are so bad I can't even figure out what whole sentences are supposed to say. For example, "police found car couple blocks from Place." Wait, missing articles, and...what was that last part? I can't explain fully, because some of the errors are that bad! Seriously, journalism is your business! The reporting is good and the stories are good, though. Just check your work WLTX.

I scrolled down looking at the latest news reports, and I am constantly sent back to news I wasn't interested in. Then after every 30 seconds or so, I am sent to the very top and I have to scroll all the way down to I was. Just to have the feed go all the way to the top after 30 seconds. What a waste of time and WLTX frustrating me. I'll get the news the old fashioned way... i will watch television. Uninstalling this now. UPDATE-it is easier on Roku Streaming.

Not caring for the new update. I can't get out of an article without the entire app closing. Aesthetically, it's nice but it takes too long to get the opening page to go away to get to the news. I dont mind change when it's better, but so far I'm really missing the old WLTX app. Update 10/9/19 - deleting the app. Hate hate hate the update. Very slow, can't find up-to-date traffic info, and news is pretty irrelevant. I sincerely miss the old app
