Won’t Work!?!?! 1/5
By hill Preston
I click on it and it starts to load goes to black screen for a minute and then it kicks me off the app it won’t let me get on it to do anything I have tried re installing it and it won’t work.
Why did you change a good thing? 1/5
I used to enjoy your app before you changed it. Now I hardly bother looking at it. The old format allowed users to easily find anything they needed - weather, school closings, local stories, news... it just seemed to have much more to offer than the new one... lots more lists and links. Please, please change it back...
Very Disappointed in the Update 2/5
By Beardie Momma
After the app updated, you cannot see pictures in the news story. While reading the story, you find yourself reading the caption for a picture, but the picture isn’t there! Fix It!!
By Ichabod Wu
Please fix the traffic button within the app.. it either won’t open or when it does it’s so tiny you can tell what’s what. Then there is a big white dead space at the bottom of the map.
Please allow more choices for which notifications are pushed! 2/5
By Yung chilly mane
I like having notifications on for breaking news that is actually important, but this app constantly pushes notifications for news that is not worth checking immediately, in addition to extremely annoying WATCH LIVE NOW notifications. If there was a way to choose what sort of news stories you receive notifications for, it would greatly improve the app.
Just one big Commercial 1/5
By Lope fade
The app is not user friendly, and everything is an advertisement. Open the app to advertisers and it never stops, which is the reason I deleted this app. I had it for years, but it just got terrible with the pop ups every tap.
Still crap 1/5
Crashed 6 times trying to watch one press conference in app. The application just keeps getting worse and worse with every update. I really like news 2 and would like to use their app, but it just flat out doesn't deliver the news in a readable format. It's awful.
I’ve seen other stations use this app, and this app SUUUUUCKS. The lack of so many features compared to the previous version is amazing, and such a horrible step BACKWARDS for WKRN. Major fail.
By RAOC 1SG
Same bad app as WSMV!
Terrible app. 1/5
Awkward, pathways are labyrinth- there should be only one click needed. There is no information you can't get from the Weather Channel app (like local rainfall totals). Ads are everywhere, too long and constantly moving so you accidentally click on them. Not at all user friendly. If you can't do it at least as well as the WC app, who needs you.
UPDATE NOT NEEDED! 1/5
Screw you News 2! You changed your app to where you have to get another app just to view the weather. The previous version of the App was fine. I could look at the weather and radar and look at news stories all in one. Now, I have to download a separate weather app to view the radar. It wasn't broke but yet you felt the need to fix it. I do not understand why companies constantly feel like they have to change how things work when the current system is doing just fine.
Pop up ads gotta go 2/5
Pop up ads pop up randomly, but most annoying they pop up while watching a news video then resets video after u X out the ad. Love news 2, but there app needs help
I can only count on this app for push notifications. Any attempt to actually use the app causes crashes or a loading progress wheel that never ends. Maybe another news network deserves my attention.
Worst App Ever 1/5
This is my first time reviewing an app. It is that bad. Constantly freezes or shuts down. Never links to stories when I click on the banner. I'm not sure what the updates are doing but they aren't fixing the consistent problems. Basically, every single time I use the app, I have an issue. I plan to delete. It's just not worth the annoyance or storage.
Terrible function 2/5
This app and/or news source had trouble with its editors or IT people. States to look at the surveillance tape if you recognize them but no link to the media referenced. Also proofread your stuff before posting please!
Stalls constantly 1/5
By Bg chxwhcxjusunvd
Decent info when it works. But barely works
Performance bug is frustrating 2/5
I don't have this issue with any other news/weather app and I have several local station apps. This app freezes my phone every time I click on a news story. Sometimes I even have to shut down my phone because it gets stuck trying to load. Maddening...
Was a good app...until.. 1/5
This used to be a decent app that I used for local news and weather, but the app crashes often, and the ads are so annoying. They are not just on the news page, and at the bottom, but now they pop up too? Really? But I do have a fix......it's called an un-install.
The app is terrible it is full of pop ups and can even redirect safari when left open! apple needs to ban the developers of this app
Pop Ups 1/5
By Jarrett 1855
Worst pop up ads of any app I have ever used!
Give up 1/5
I give up on this app. It used to be the best. The final straw is trying to read the news and pop up ads start. Especially frustrating as you're reading about the latest terrorist attack.
Terrible app 1/5
Channel is boring now. Warnings are always too late.
Not controllable 1/5
By Me & myself..
I don't want sports notifications. Period! The alerts won't turn off even though there is a switch to turn off sports notifications. If I have to spend every Sunday clearing all the foolball alerts, I don't want the app.
Pop-up ads 1/5
Pop-up ads make it impossible to read news items.
Notifications are horrible, great local weather app 2/5
Although this app has a great local Nashville weather and radar section, if you have notifications on, every morning it gives you a friendly reminder about the weather and a depressing notification on how many people were killed the day before. Horrible way to wake up.
Horrible News App 1/5
By Ribs And Whiskey
The ads and popups make this app almost unusable.. Please fix!
Unfortunately Horrible 1/5
Love the morning crew on 2. They're the best. App is total junk. Pop ups and loud commercials. Rarely works.
Getting Worse 1/5
This app used do be okay, but now it struggles to load properly and random pop-up ads often fill the screen. I'd suggest you find another local news app.
No Live Streaming 1/5
Channel 2's live streaming shows the same commercial over and over. NO live streaming!
Great App, But 4/5
The app is very handy and useful. Great to keep up to date on events as they happen, including traffic. The one request I have is to bring back a feature. When you tap the daily update received at 6am, it needs to go back to bringing up that information like it used to. Now when you tap the notification, it brings up the live show section. I don't always think to read the entire notification before tapping and miss seeing the summary on screen.
Terrible update 1/5
I loved this app before the update. I put off doing the update bc of the terrible reviews. However, it eventually wouldn't open without updating. At first, I didn't like the update bc it was hard to find anything. Now, I hate it bc it won't even load. I have to completely close out the app from the home screen in order to access it again. It just freezes and won't do anything otherwise. Terrible
Worse and worse 2/5
There was a time that this was the best local news app out of Nashville. That day has past. I would rank it third behind News Channel 5 and WSMV.
It takes too long to scroll through the story list now that each one has the large pictures to the left. Also the because of the ads loading each time you go back to the list it delays the time before you can pick up where you left off on the list after reading a story.
This app freezes, crashes and displays ads when one is trying to read an ad free article. Also there are many spelling errors that make you wonder who is writing the copy.
Marginally Useful 2/5
Crashes while scrolling thru an article.
Incessant ads popping up in the middle of news stories list.
Why does almost every story have to have video? I just want read the news while eating lunch.
Can’t go back unless you scroll to the top to get the Back button to reappear.
App freezes up 3/5
The app keeps freezing all the time. I keep have to force close it to get it to refresh
Unusable app 2/5
Content is fine, but app has been so glitchy, have uninstalled twice on different occasions, hoping a reload would help. I want to like this app, but I can't.
Fire your developer, and start over.
Horrific user experience 1/5
Ad's slide into the news list repositioning what you see as you're reading; back button disappears while scrolling an article only to reappear when the bottom is reached forcing a scroll to the end irregardless of article length; returning back to news list after reading an article results in a shift of all the stories on the screen so you're not even sure where you were in the list; most links within stories don't work; some back buttons on top of screen some inconsistently on bottom depending on article. This app feels like it was written by a child for a class project 2hrs before it was due.
The screen is jumpy when you scroll to try to read an article. I love your channel best but going have to leave you for another station's phone app. This is just not doable.
Got the jitters 4/5
Vertical scrolling gets very jittery particularly near the bottom of a story. Started after iOS 9 installed but not happening on other apps. Content wise still the best in Nashville. Just need the shakiness fixed.
Still not fixed! 1/5
Please fix the app! Can't scroll to the end of a story without the screen shaking and not scrolling.
Am SERIOUSLY GETTING TIRED 2/5
Of a page pulsating when I attempt to scroll through an article!!!!!! When trying to scroll while reading an article, the page SPAZZES so much, it could provoke a seizure in susceptible individuals!!!!!!!!!!! If it is not fixed, I will be DELETING the app!!!!!!!!!!!!
Notifications are fixed! 5/5
Notification bug is fixed! Back to being the best local news app in town!
Used to be 5 stars and the best news app in Nashville. Now it won't clear the notification red dot since the last update. 11 days later and it's at 77 right now. Uninstalled and reinstalled and it didn't fix it. The last update details also mention the did something with notifications. They need to undo whatever they did!
Gave up 2/5
Finally deleted the app after unsuccessfully trying to get rid of 100+ messages. Don't know why they configured their news that way but I don't want to constantly see numbers on my apps, especially ones I can't get rid of.
Bad update 1/5
This app used to be my primary news source. However, with the new update I can no longer tell if there is breaking news since the notifications will not clear on the icon. I am going to delete the app and go to another source if it is not corrected soon.
Having the same problem as everyone else!! Like athletes feet...won't go away!!
100+ Notifications 1/5
I had over 100 notifications on the app. Drives me bonkers. Please listen to these reviews and change the notification "enhancement". I even turned off notifications on this app and I'm still getting the red numbers that won't go away. Next step is just deleting the app.
The notifications keep piling up. I'm up to 63. Make it go away. 😂
Red notifications 1/5
This app was great until the most recent update. Now it tells me I have 60 new notifications and there's no way to get them to go away.
Fix the alerts already! 1/5
Are you listening to the complaints? The alerts won't go away! I got 59! Annoying. Plus some of the news writers are apparently on something. Some stories are very badly written!
Streaming video doesn't work. One star only because there's no half-star option...
