    by Maryland RVer

    I drive a school bus and love this app for quick checks on weather and traffic. It loads quickly and doesn't crash--just like me!

  • I like the app

    by Jwhite7089

    Breaking news and weather updates are great. It would be nice if it had live feeds like some of the other apps. Also, more updates during the weekend. Right now most of the news is old with a little sprinkling of current news. So during the weekend I watch the news on TV.

  • WBAL great app

    by bkteshep

    Good app to have. I check the news on a regular basis as I'm not always home to watch the news.

  • Good app

    by Pianolady2925

    I get more alerts on this app than any other news app that I use. They are almost immediate and the headlines are easy to find and read about. The weather section is better than most, also.

  • Wbal app

    by Ravensgirl10

    Love the app! It helps me look at delays for my children schools.

  • New App

    by Tjacks4

    Excellent !

  • Decent app

    by Stevem34

    Not bad. Can usually get most the info and other sh&t I need. The weather forecast is always wrong. But, f&@k it that's ok. The other complaint I have is the mother-f@&ker is very slow and choppy when loading.

  • Where's the live feed?

    by JEcandela

    Would rate higher with live stream. Unacceptable. Live stream during news hours is very common now with other news apps (see any DC station).

  • Updates on the weekend are a joke

    by Beep21042

    It seems that seldom if ever does anything newsworthy get added on Saturdays and Sundays. Becomes a waste of time to even bother checking things through the app or website.

  • Too many ads & review begging

    by MethodicJon

    Too many ads. App also nags for app review.

  • Must view 30 second video ad when starting app

    by WasabiG

    This used to be my go-to app for local news; however, now when I open the app, a 30 second long video ad plays. There is no way to escape out of the ad except to close out the app. Terrible.

  • Adware

    by Tavon Holmes

    Full screen ads randomly appear now, wasting my time and data. Thanks for ruining a great app WBAL!

  • Old news!

    by Doula Sue

    Articles are days old! There are some current news. News flashes are very brief and not up to date. Would rather stick to tv!

  • Great App

    by Hikume

    I love the app. Its pretty easy to use and understand.

  • Great app

    #1 Balt .news app.

  • Please fix

    by Annaloo9876

    I rely on this local news source and appreciate the content of the reporting. However, the app automatically flips to the next story before you've finished reading the current one. This happens too often and is a nuisance that can be fixed.

  • Very nice app

    by debbiesh74

    Easy to use.

  • The new News Paper.

    by Tfergm5

    Quick and easy way to catch up on the news. No more news papers, I use this every morning.

  • Great app except fed coverage

    by April555stars

    "Irresistible" is my favorite. Great coverage of local government. But the details left out for federal government and military topics is often disingenuous. The Wiki leaks video of the American helicopter pilots gunning down innocent people for example, they fail to mention the two children that were blatantly hanging out the window of the makeshift ambulance that was also gunned downed by the helicopter, while the ambulance tried to rescue the gunned down journalists.

  • Wbalnews app

    by Hockeymoms

    Updates to news items are very slow. App is somewhat user-friendly but can be quite cumbersome with all if the tickers/ads.

  • Great to stay connected

    by M&MsMom0405

    I love that I can stay connected to local news when I'm out of town. WBAL rocks!!

  • Very helpful

    by Srpdmb

    It has school closings too!

  • Use it every day!

    by Watership2

    I love this app! It has news, traffic, traffic cams, weather, radar, sports, and entertainment info.

  • Great!

    by Cg3.

    Use every day

  • Excellent Source

    by N3fol

    I love the news and updates I constantly get through this app. I highly recommend this one. However, I wish the is an option to view live streaming video on their channel.

  • Y

    by Debbie 2222

    Great just wish updated more often

  • Push notifications

    by AppleChris117

    I get useless notifications about the Ravens winning or losing. Other notifications are useful though.


    by Amit Pancholi

    Love the app so much. It is very useful and helpful. I like how I can be updated and watch LIVE Breaking News (right here) on the app. No. 1 station WBAL-TV 11!!!
