Worst app for news now! 1/5
Renewed the app and it is terrible now! All the ads are a pain! Keeps jumping to the beginning all the time! Give me back the old app! This sorry! A station as big as channel 10 should have better design than this!
Not so great 1/5
I watch the TV Channel, but this app is in great need of repair. If I get a notification to go to the app to read something important, it is rarely there. Or it shuts down and takes me completely out. The news is not always up to date with the stories not complete. I rarely use this app anymore as the other news stations give much better and complete and correct news stories.
Ted Kennedy App? 1/5
How did this think get such high ratings? It crashes faster than Ted Kennedy driving home after a bender!
Terrible app. 1/5
WBIR has always been my favorite news channel but I have downloaded this app three times and get hijacked every time. May have to try WATE to see if it's any better.
Constant crashes. As soon as the app opens, it crashes, even after hard resetting phone, deleting app and installing it again, it still crashes. Time for an update!
Enjoy using this app
WBIR-TV and the WBIR-TV app were my favorite channel and news app until the layout of the weather and school closings changed. I dislike the app and the layout of the weather on tv! Ugh!!! Please stop changing things!
Much improved App 4/5
By Sick & Easy
Really like WBIR-TV, and now I like their app better. It's the first app I go to for news. Their separate weather app is also good. There is no perfect app, but this one is good. However, I really don’t like all the ads. One has to make way thru ads to get to news. After several months it is still one of my "first go" app for news.
Don’t like updated version 3/5
By WBIR Fan!?
What’s with all the ads? And it constantly jumps around. Please get it back the way it used to be. I can’t tell news stories from ads anymore! I have to hunt for the news!
Thank you App Team! 5/5
Received an answer from App Team they are checking on the hijacking to App Store. Just downloaded 10 news again. Best local news and easy to navigate. THANK YOU
By Mike B. 417
I love the news cast over all. There app sometimes will act up some and repeat things or words people speak.
Immediate news 4/5
Informative and a variety of subjects. The only thing I object too is the constant ad boxes embedded among the stories.
Turned into near hijacker app 2/5
Until latest versions, this was my favorite app for local up to the minute news. However, using the app now results in numerous trips to the App Store by just opening an article. Even if I close the App Store and go back to WBIR-TV app, it immediately jumps back to the App Store with a different App from the adds. So once that cycle starts you can't end it. Even if I have the App Store open with an App I am looking at, WBIR-TV app takes it over. I emailed the support weeks ago and got the expected nothing. So this review to warn others.
Better news from 3 day old paper 1/5
If you are looking to find the most misspelled words or inaccurate stories, this is the app for you. It’s like a third grader writes their stories. The new app constantly sends you to ads and the App Store for garbage you don’t want. Guess they think people in Tennessee are inbred idiots and won’t notice.... Not user friendly. Has same tired stories day after day. Traffic option is joke. Save your time and download any other local channel app. Or really just watch Fox News. These untalented folks just recycle everything the Nationals carry. Straight from the heart and straight to the dumps!
Constantly throws me to the App Store 1/5
I can’t read an article without getting thrown to the App Store. Like I’ve clicked an advertisement...only I haven’t clicked anything. Then when I try to close the App Store and go back to the article, it keeps flipping back to the App Store. To the point that I have to do a hard close on both apps to get it to stop. VERY FRUSTRATING!
Why go to App Store 1/5
Every time I open a story, after a few seconds, the App Store opens. Please fix this. The WBIR app is useless in this incarnation.
Pop-up ads 1/5
Whenever I go to the WBIR-TV app, I get pop-ups constantly. I get to read a couple of sentences and then the ads start. I’m not happy!
Every time I open and try to read a story the app takes you to the App Store??
Open up app, then it'll go the App Store. Need to update for crashes and sending you off to who knows where?
Constant pop up adds 2/5
The app used to work great. Now I only have it open for seconds before it sends me to the App Store with adds. It is impossible to read more than a sentence of an article before the next pop up.
Great Local Coverage 5/5
WBIR-TV app offers great news coverage for the Knoxville metro & East TN area. I use it and the WBIR Weather app quite frequently to check on the local news, especially when it’s breaking news that might not be on the TV station until the next broadcast.
Hard to maneuver 1/5
The site is hard to maneuver through the apps.
Love the friendly morning greetings!!! 5/5
Great local coverage!!
Videos die but not before ad finishes 1/5
By Machination Nation
Well folks, why can’t you offer more than sprinkler protection ads? Wanted to watch "cute" raccoon/cat rescue but got nothing but black screen after ad AND a locked up app...no good.
As far as news goes, it's pretty good The notifications need more moderation. Why do I care that corker called trump childish? That's not breaking news. Someone needs to moderate the "breaking news" notifications better. We only need to know IMPORTANT breaking news with notifications.
By Papaw in TN
This app is a great source for news.
I use it everyday to stay in touch.
News Update 4/5
Very thorough news highlights and great weather coverage. Use everyday.
App constantly crashes!! 2/5
I've had this app for a while because I like the station. It's as though whoever is in charge of the app almost doesn't care if the app works correctly or not. I travel a lot, and like to keep up to date in things back in Knoxville and surrounding areas. It's frustrating when you can get some of the news, or occasionally the app will open for a second then crash. Again, as though no one cares if the app works or not.
Good app. 5/5
WBIR is my go to app and TV.
Simply the best! 5/5
From the heart.... professional and personal, WBIR-TV is my source for everything. Wherever I happen to be this app lets me take them with me; and that's all good because they make me feel at home. Actually, I think they are my family !
WBIR-TV DOWNLOAD 5/5
By D.Daniel8 B.
I think it is handy to have all the news as it happens ! Easy to maneuver . Enjoy the vote app in the WBIR-TV site. I would recommend it for anyone who likes the local weather and other great articles ! Great site ! Get it !
Don't like the new lay out 1/5
Don't like the lay out
Needs Some Improvement 3/5
Stories are grouped under icons that sometimes makes it difficult to find specific stories. Stories, especially sports, are not updated in a timely manner.
WBIR T.V 5/5
By Two big feet
Five thumbs Up!
Live Streaming 1/5
I try to catch the news by live streaming on your channel from my IPhone, one of the latest, newer models, but it's very bad , to much buffering.
Pretty Good 4/5
Pretty Good app
Good layout 4/5
Simple uncluttered layout compared to other local News sites.
Ok app 5/5
Great app, easy to use
Ok but hard to navigate 4/5
By Pippin Walks
The stories are all grouped under an icon but it makes it hard to find a story sometimes. Wish there was an option for text only and no video
By Nana Katydid!
i lovd using this app! It is my go to for the weather report.
Annoying App 1/5
Slow to load and very heavy with ads that keep slowly popping up.
It's almost like it is not really a news app. It's just a mish mash of
Nothing. Blazing at the top is a link to the Giraffe Cam. Is that news?
No! But they seem to think so.
Great news app 5/5
If I need to know local & national news quickly, this is the place to go.
Could Be Better 3/5
I would like to see more updates during the day with breaking news...other news competitors have more updates during breaking and ongoing news events
I can always find the latest new.
Weather update 1/5
I do not like new update. You have nothing to show the allergens like before, you have to search everywhere to find what was a simple process before. All around this new update is terrible, leaves a lot to be desired. Weather part is the worst. You ask me to rate and if I don't want to give you a star it will not let me rate. The new update is very slow to load and just throws you off. Liked the older version better.
Good source of news. 5/5
I enjoy getting my news texts to keep me informed about local events.
Love this app! 5/5
Use it every morning to check the weather.
Like but hard to use 2/5
By TN River Cruise
I like the app but dont find it user friendly. Shows me story line but when I click to go there it takes me thru all stories before I see one I was interested in.
Great App 4/5
Great App from WBIR 5/5
By Nuclear Wildcat
WBIR has done a wonderful job developing this app! This app is a true reflection of the dedication that WBIR has proven year after year to exceptional reporting of the news, weather and sports. Living in East Tennessee, we are extremely blessed to have WBIR on our television screens and the ability to be able to take them with you when you are away is very fortunate!
