WCAX News app reviews
Old app was better 1/5
The ads are ridiculous. It’s hard to find what I need, especially school closings. And what’s with the closed captioning? I can’t get rid of it, and it completely blocks the video- which I don’t even bother with now. Fix this!
Prepare to drain your battery!!! 1/5
This app uses 30% battery in 20 minutes just reading articles. No videos were played because I hate ads. Sometimes while selecting a story, app will not open them, just blank white screen. Then right in the middle of reading, I'm unable to scroll and everything freezes up. Have to close app, restart, and find where I left off. This happens almost every day.
On the plus side, articles are plentiful with the usual 3rd grade grammatical errors seen everywhere on the internet, ads are fairly benign and easy to ignore.
No school closing tab. 1/5
I only used tho old app for school closing because it was normally up to date. Disappointed that it’s not even a tab on the new app.

I get notifications. However no way to readily tell what the notification applies to.
Battery drain 1/5
This app needs to be updated. Serious battery drain when used. I can also cook food with the phone since it heats up so much.
Much better app with some disappointments 2/5
Fast loading on an iPad but to wait 20? Secs for some unrelated ad to play, I have never streamed anything. There use to be a section for comments. It is needed. For example: a stolen green motorcycle was stolen. No information if it had a tag, And seen beefing driven away. What direction? Route? What happen to facts?
really built with so many adds in the way. very annoying. 1/5
sooo many adds in the way ... more add space the news at times... very unfortunate since it used to be better than this .
Be careful 1/5
By Eric Neilsen
Phone becomes insanely hot with this app on. Better than before but these guys need help writing apps.
Not great 1/5
Have settings set to receive notifications, but is sporadic at best - old app worked better - have yet to see what the improvements are!!
Not working? 1/5
I was prompted to "download our new app" and so I did. I open it and it just continually buffers and nothing happens.
Very nice app, love that the streaming live news is back, thankyou!! Loads much faster than the old app, easier to get around, and a much nicer weather section. Who knows....might not need the WCAX standalone weather app any more, we'll see. Great work guys, a winner for me.
