When you click on any news item , it freezes up. Can't scroll up or down. Tried restarting the app. No good. Also , uninstalled and then reinstalled the app , still doesn't work. Now I remember why I uninstalled it a few months ago ! It's garbage ! I'll stay with WBIR and WVLT ! Come on WATE , get with the program !

Pretty worthless. It sends me notifications that I can only read a little bit of. And when I click on the notification, it takes me to the app but not that article. So now I know there was a multivehicle accident on I40. I have no idea where or when or how or anything else. The page the notification goes to is the traffic page and I don't see any articles with any such headline. Just got the app-now I've uninstalled. I see no point in being alerted about news I can't find info on.

New, updated version is terrible. Much of a smartphone screen is taken up by ads and news videos that never load, so trying to read the news is too much of a bother. The added weather option is similar. What was once my go-to news source has been uninstalled out of frustration, and replaced with another news app.

What's new

If you’re holding your device in landscape when entering an article screen, the video will no longer automatically jump into full-screen mode. If you’re holding your phone or tablet in portrait orientation when you’re on an article, then you can still quickly launch video full-screen mode by rotating it to landscape. We also fixed some minor bugs.
