Lots of adds but that is understandable in a free local news app. I really appreciate the weather features and the 2 to 3 minutes only lag time when looking at the local radar is better than any of the other local news apps. , . which can be up to 10 minutes or more behind the current conditions. Update: After using this app more extensively I must say that I'm very disappointed. I really liked the previous version and I'm always amazed when companies roll out new versions that suck.

Too new to the App to determine a true rating at that time. Have trouble getting the live app at times, and I'm NOT a Tech. I'm on Android; is there something else that I need to o??? Thanks for listening. I have been with WRAL since 1966 to 1972, moved away but always seem to land back in Raleigh as we did in 1985. Have been somewhat distressed by all the "bragging" about WRAl. Most of us know the value of the newscast and don't need to be reminded several times during the news.

I like WRAL, but the app is not great. Articles on the main page are not updated frequently enough. The same articles stay there for several days. Many stories have no text and force you to watch a video, which I hate. Most of the time when I read an article & go back to the main page, the page reloads and puts me back at the top of the page so I have to scroll all the way back down to find my place. A lot of the stories could really benefit from pictures, like animal stories & strange events.
