I’m back & loving WAVE app finally 5/5
i had removed this app some time ago due to multiple problems using it. Reloading this latest version today, I could not be more pleased. The best part so for is the “time stamp” on each news article / traffic report. Thank you for this user friendly app!
Poor content 2/5
Minimal effort is put into the news content. Very superficial.
SLOOOW Loading 1/5
The app has good information, but all of the other local news stations beat it in speed. I rarely use app because of the loading speed.
Closed captions 1/5
Very sad in 2017 still no closed captions on most videos in app. Good example is the Lamar Jackson one today. I know there will be no response. They could care less
Slow Response 1/5
I use this app for all my news but the response time is so slow now. It literally takes minutes for the app to open to the main news page and when I scroll or click on an article it is majorly delayed. This is the only app I have issues with. At first I thought it was a glitch and the app would be updated but it's been weeks of the same issue and it's every time I use the app. I'll be deleting the app and finding another news source.
Poor live streaming 3/5
I like the app overall but the main reason I choose it was for the streaming capability (I am considering "cutting the cord" and getting rid of Dish). Other local news source streaming is of much higher quality. It's so bad that it's hard to read any of the text unless it stays on the screen for 5-10 seconds. If this were fixed, I would rate it higher.
Worst app ever. Literally sends you about twenty notifications every single day about bad news bad news bad news. Like we don't have enough bad news in our everyday lives. No wonder the world is so negative. This is why so many less people watch the news any more as is.
Bring the old app back. 1/5
By Ken Maleske
Can't watch live streaming. I want the old app back.
By Anger B
I love this app, I can watch my live newscasts and late breaking news
Do not add!! 1/5
Wanna watch "live stream?" Only if it's during the news... if not, we show old news. They might as well just delete this from the App Store because it is a waste. Do not download this
They don't know what news is. 1/5
Just in the last two days, I've received these "News Alerts" from the Wave 3 app:
"Megyn Kelly leaving Fox News for NBC News"
"American Pharaoh fathers first colt"
"REMINDER: UofL game at Notre Dame is on WAVE 3 News tonight at 9 p.m."
Apparently WAVE 3 has forgotten what NEWS is, and is instead thinking that anything they see as interesting is worthy of an alert. For real? A programming reminder about a basketball game? I know that basketball is big around here, but the fact that WAVE 3 is airing the game IS NOT NEWS.

Advertising ad sounds drive me crazy uninstalling
Like it but loathe the ads 4/5
Like the app. It is easy to use but the ads get in my last nerve. Sometimes you get stuck in the ad and can't get out then you have to start the app again and see another advertisement! It's incredibly annoying.
I actually love this app I hate to rate it like this but I can't help it. My reason is the commercial pop ups I can't click on anything without a pop up in my face. I've been tempted to delete this app I will if it doesn't stop.
Wave 3 News is Excellent 5/5
I agree totally with all the positive comments posted here.
Best Local News App 5/5
Fastest and the best app! It's the only one I use and depend on!
Not up to date. 3/5
This morning I load the app only to find it is still yesterday's news. That has happened more than once.
Wave 3 5/5
By Keke50 65
This is great I really appreciate having news and weather right away! Plus warnings and watches! You really do keep us safe and up to date! Thank you!!!
Love! Love! Love! 4/5
I love everything about this app except 1 thing. My coworkers often get the same texts much quicker than I do.
Everything else I love!
Easy to use 4/5
Easy to navigate. Video tends to be very sharp. Photos not so much. Very timely news posts.
The Best 5/5
I love this app
Pj Glover 5/5
My day is not complete until I have gotten the weather and the news. Love Wave3!!!
Great App 5/5
By Irish luck 36
All my local news and weather at my fingertips!
Fastest News Alerts App Ever!!! 5/5
For about a year I've received news alerts and notifications from WDRB, but when I signed up for WAVE 3 News alerts, WAVE 3 News alerts were quicker and more timely as to providing news when it happens. Keep up the excellent work!!!
Kentucky fair Free Quran booth 5/5
By Omar Bn Alkatab
Awsome channel great news thank you
Love to keep informed 5/5
I love having the instant access that the Wave 3 News and Weather app allows me to have to keep informed on current happenings in the news locally, nationally, and internationally. Thank you Wave 3 for keeping me prepared!!
Too many ADs !!!! I would pay not to see!!!
Love the app! 5/5
It's a great source for news and I love the alerts it sends to my phone. The weather app is amazing as well. Great job!
To many notifications 2/5
The app runs fairly well but has way to many notifications. Tim Tebow giving baseball a shot isn't breaking news and I don't need notified of this just put it in the app. It's not an important thing.
Best news coverage of Kentucky 5/5
By Grayson county ky 290
Get fast news alerts! Know the weather when I need to know. The most useful app I have on my phone. Use the app several times a day. Thanks WAVE 3 keep up the great work! -Trent
Great app very useful 5/5
I love how this keeps me informed and is quick to bring me breaking news!
I Like It! 5/5
Love the notifications sent . Keeps me on top of what's going on. Also have weather app and it also keeps me up-to-date on weather conditions.
Great news source 4/5
This is the first app I open every morning to catch the latest happenings in our city. I really appreciate being able to immediately share stories with my social media outlets. I would like to see it updated over the weekend, however.
WAVE 3 app on 6s iPhone 4/5
I actually like the app very much it seems accurate and up to date I use it at least every day. One problem I see I'm having is when I tap on the app it takes 15 seconds to load and I think that seems kinda slow compared to some other apps.
Love Wave3 but please don't send alerts at 3:30am unless it's a life threatening emergency.
Better coverage than everyone else 5/5
I've switched online news apps. The other station I was reading updates slowly and doesn't seem to report news only crimes & accidents. WAVE seems to cover everything.
Traffic kills the app 1/5
Every time I try & access the traffic portion of the app it closes automatically!
Done this ever since I downloaded it. Crappy app.
News notification annoying jingle 1/5
The breaking news notification "Wave 3 News jingle" is annoying at best. I was hoping it was just an addition for Derby but it seems that it wasn't. Please roll back this "improvement" and revert back to letting ME CHOOSE what sound my phone makes for news notifications.
Just updated-1 star! 1/5
The links within the articles won't open now. Some of the articles won't open. The back arrow doesn't work. Im no expert but I don't recommend this update.
By Wes Hollis
This app has great potential but has a few issues that should be addressed. I was looking through the missing persons page through the app hoping I could help by seeing someone I knew or might have seen only to consistently have ads pop up and crash the app a few times. Out of all places to put ads! Missing persons should not be one of those places! It almost seemed disgraceful to say the least. Besides that, I'm frequently redirected for mobile users. In a day where technology is in abundance and so fast.....it seems like this wouldn't happen in 2016. That's a minor issue that shouldn't even be happening. The app also frequently crashes, usually when the pop ups come about. How do the developers not even notice this and if they do why hasn't it been addressed or fixed? To sum it up: This would be a great app but I frequently turn my Google browser for local news due the current issues this app faces. iPhone 6 user with no other issues.
Wave 3 app is very useful 5/5
By Girl in the Ville
Love the app!! The layout was thought out very well! I definitely recommend to everyone who lives in Louisville! 😉
Keeping updated 5/5
By Nana Claus #1 Ho
As a volunteer EMT in the Wave 3 area I love getting updates and breaking news on my phone.
Best local news app in Ky 5/5
It's really the only app I need. It's got all the important local news with a mix of national/world too. They also have other, fun stuff -- not just crime. I realy like their data lists. And when new stuff happens they send alerts so I'm firs to find out.
It's okay. But other than news and weather nothing gets updated on time. Ex. Sports scores!!
Hate the Ads!!! 3/5
Love the app and alerts - very easy to use. Hate that I have to stare at an ad every time I open it up, even when I just minimized it I have to look at it again.
I love Wave 3. When I moved to the Louisville area almost 20 years ago, I felt like the news channel I watched in Ohio was like leaving family. So happy to have found a news/weather group to be new family members here. Would have given you 5 stars but sometimes your online headlines are exaggerated teasers.
The Papa Johns/WAVE 3 App 3/5
I had switched from the 32 WLKY app some time back and really enjoyed the WAVE 3 app. The layout is excellent and the stories can actually be read without having to burn data on video. But this long pause on loading the news stories (or when you want to get in quick to check the weather) to display a Papa Johns ad is driving me crazy. Realistically we know advertising has a part in free services such as this but it needs to be a bit more unobtrusive. Lately I've found myself passing up the app entirely simply because I know what is waiting upon launch. At some point I'll probably switch to another local news app if the format doesn't change.
Not working for me 1/5
By NYC to Louisville
I'm considering deleting the app. I get a huge picture of Papa John before the news story loads. Very annoying.
Wave 3 news 1/5
Constantly crashes. I am deleting it.
