Great news app. Just wishing that you can watch the news live!!!!!!
Goes hrs. Without updating its stories! Needs to update its stories more often!
I love being able to watch every newscast live from the app! The quality is awesome. The main downside of this app is that many links in the app launch Safari which sometimes requires you to re-navigate to the story/slideshow/video etc. And when you're in Safari, there's a big banner across the top asking you to install the app. You can't win.
I find the site difficult to navigate. Also during the storms, I found news to be up to 12 hours behind. It could be I just had problems with finding current reports.
So far so good.
I mainly downloaded this app for up to date weather...especially with pending storms. Yet it seems like they only update the weather forecast when they get around to it. Many times I notice that the weather videocast can be almost 12 hours old which is unacceptable since they could easily upload a new one after each TV broadcast.
Love the app always gives me what I need to know. Great stories, local and statewide. I enjoy the stories in stats about PA ad individual counties. Traffic stories are great as well
Does the job!
I like the ease of the app and the up-to-date news alerts.
Always room for improvement News 8 app!
WGAL is awesome but this app is terrible maybe if they got a pro to do it would be a lot better I see a lot of potential and good information but it's not I appealing
Hands down best app in PA
Very informative app, it does its job admirably. However, it's greatly lacking in the looks department -- who says news has to be so drab? This app is on its own screen with all the other dark ages (aka pre-iOS7) apps. Sorry for putting so much stock in something most would consider superficial but, a) I'm a graphic designer and b) functionally, the app is great.
Use all the time!!
I Like the road closure notifications!
Nicely done, os7, iphone 4s, Installed and works great. Channel 8 has the best severe weather updates and cancelation updates
Much better version. Hate the ads though.
Gets the job done. Not amazing, but certainly useful
Sometimes you cannot read articles
While this app looks slick in the surface, it us one if the poorest news apps I've ever seen. The stories are not updated frequently enough. The top stories are usually old news.
I gave it one star because I find this app to be highly inconvenient. Has anyone else noticed that just about every article you click on requires you to click a link to read the entire article on the internet?? I got the app because I'm supposed to be able to read the news without having to use other apps on my phone. Every other news app I have allows me to see articles right in the app as well as school closings/delays, pictures and other area information. Get it together WGAL or I'm not using this app or your news.
I only downloaded this for weather, so the other parts might be okay. I was looking for more specific weather info on our area than the Weather Channel app, but this does not give it. For instance, the predictor is just a series of photos showing the eastern seaboard and how they think the storm system will advance. Again, my 2 stars are specifically for that section of the app, because I thought a weather leader in the Susquehanna Valley would have better, more localized info.
I enjoy this app a lot but it often has difficulty & crashes. I do enjoy the alerts.
This is a great and useful tool to have , information in an App is a safety net to have!
Has what I need to know and I love the alerts.
Enjoy this app. It is informative and keeps me up to date with what is happening in my area. I like the breaking news alerts.
Accurate & informative. :)
Great for weather and school closing updates
Easy to use
I like to use it for school closings.
If I wanted to rate this app, I would do so without being pestered by popup requests. If an app wants a five-star rating, the developers should write an app which delights its users, not one which interrupts them to beg for validation.
The best thing about this app is how often they link OUT of it. What's the point of this app when every story is just a link?!
I love the way this application keeps me informed about happenings in my LOCAL area; the weather, dangerous police alerts and also the many wonderful things going on. It is as vital as my morning coffee!
Bland and outdated news. Never recent.
Bland and outdated news. Never recent.
Love keeping in touch from Florida !
Keeps me up to date on what's going on.
Excellent supplement to watching actual channel on TV! Takes a little long to load but since that's the worst about it is have to rate this very highly! Good work! Been watching for fifty five years; back when Mary Jane Landis had Percy Platypus and cousin Kiwi on early Saturday mornings...just after Covered Wagon Theatre! Thanks! Mike wonders
Love getting news as it happens. Esp the sound my phone makes when there is an update. Thank you for ur hard work.
Keeps me informed of breaking news & weather conditions & closings.
Half of my 50-60 working hours per week are outside. The radar loop and forecast are very important to me. I open this every morning and sometimes throughout the day.
Great coverage keeps me informed
I love the breaking news notifications especially the road closures do to accidents
Slow. Can't search for articles. Weather and sports coverage is lousy.
Great App! Love the alerts!
I really enjoy using this app for local news on the go. Well designed
I like having my local news and weather in one convenient place.
I love having local weather and news alerts with me all the time :)
Use it everyday, nice app.
Good app. Can use anywhere. Updated frequently. Not always accurate locations though.
Nice to check news anywhere I go.
The app is great for news and weather because it is do easy to use. I can easily get from the news to the weather and the to the forecast without any problems. Thank you for this.
Great news and weather!!
Great app for local news, weather and traffic.
It's stable and does what it should. If I could change anything, I'd make it easier to add comments and start a new topic.
Great app to get you local news. Especially if you missed the broadcast.
