Difficult to navigate. What happened to all the news categories on the old app? I miss being able to sort news from my local area.
What happened?! 1/5
This used to be a wonderful app; however, it is now littered with numerous obnoxious ads. Why such a huge change?! Navigating and utilizing this app is now an unpleasant & frustrating experience. For this reason, we’ll be relying on another local network news app for news, information, updates and alerts.
3 news next, but not here (on the app) 1/5
By bryer's daddy
EDITED: This app has a live stream function which is often nonfunctional.
The live stream is unavailable when a newscast is delayed, and is oftentimes inaccessible for regularly scheduled broadcasts.
Often news live stream unavailable when the president has one of his covid 19 briefings is on.
If a live stream is available, it is almost difficult to access, almost as though TEGNA, WKYC’s parent company, doesn’t want you to watch a live stream of their newscasts.
Additionally, live stream pixelates and live audio stutters making newscast unwatchable and unlistenable.
News. Weather 5/5
Comforting weather accuracy reports
Bogus Ads 2/5
By Uncle Duke 1965
News stories on WKYC 3 News are “littered” with come-on teaser ads which seem antithetical not only to the longstanding traditions of this station, but more so to their current slogan/mantra “what matters.” I realize that Tegna is a corporation in the business of making money, however it seems that their revenue stream from ads like “America’s number one gut doctor begs you to throw out this vegetable” and “casinos don’t want you to do this, but can’t stop you” are the fodder of investigative journalism that Channel 3 used to cover.
Their app is very repetitive and only shows brief snippets of stories that they carry on their broadcasts. The stories tend to be old and aren’t updated.
Videos crashing making this app unusable 1/5
Was a good app but videos completely crash the app.
App only loading splash screen 1/5
News not getting through..
The today show 5/5
Terrible terrible time that we’re through
It’s very uplifting!!! Watching the show..
App crashes on live video. 1/5
Aside from the app not being very refined and clumsy, the main issue is the crash associated with live video feeds. With the corona virus global paralysis we are now faced with a reliance on the news networks to keep us informed and educated. When the live feeds are available and you activate the sound (extremely important) the app crashes every single time. It happens to my phone along with others, so clearly there is a bug to be fixed. So please fix this very important issue.
I understand ads are needed to pay for quality work. And I don’t mind them before the video starts. But to show another ad just because you want to expand the video to full screen? And if you expand to soon you get taken to a video game page!? You then go back and start the whole process over again! Has this been brought up before?
Alerts are great 5/5
By fuud seek
I like to get the alerts so I can know the latest news on what orders and guidelines have been issued
Best News App Ever 5/5
Best news app hands down
Very objective news agency
Best Local Source 5/5

Away from Cleveland. Thanks, WKYC! 5/5
You keep me up to date in the CLE!!
WKYC UPDATES 5/5
Appreciate my updates from WKYC - Timely & concise!
Awesome News 3 (WKYC) 5/5
My husband & I enjoy watching WKYC for many reasons. All the on air personalities are the best! They present the news, sports, weather, health & other information in a professional manner. One of the qualities that I enjoy most is the true caring & mutual respect they have for one another. Indeed, they seem like my “friends”.

upmobi.xyz！！raise downloads by 10 times 5/5
By Vanester Peckham
This is one of the best apps i have found till now. Appreciated your hard work.
Btw, here wa can provide rating, review, so as to the keyword searching install.Want to get more organic users, then find us in upmobi.xyz
Without question, WKYC offers the most accurate forecast of all local stations. Furthermore, it is done in a scientific, calm manner. Other local stations go for high drama and fear and lose accuracy in the process.
Front Row 5/5
By blessed and grsteful
I loved the Friday Jan 17 show at 7pm. The chemistry between Mike Polk, Sara, and Betsy was great. They were so relaxed, being themselves, and being honest and natural in their answers. It made me laugh. Made by Friday nite.
Channel three news . 5/5
Up to date news ,
WKYC NEWS 5/5
I know that I can get unbiased, honest news coverage from people who really care about what is important to REAL people!!!
A lot of commercials and everytime my signal gets lost I have to start the app over and go through the whole process of commercials again tending me to not see the weather before I go to work at 5 am.
Terrible update 2/5
I’m deleting this app and finding a different one. This went from a streamlined, easy to use experience to a flashy, annoying one. I don’t have time to waste on this.
Out of town 5/5
By Skipit guy
The only way I keep up with my news in Cleveland, is on the Internet and WKYC.

Simply the best 5/5
By Danny 8675309
Best 6:00 and 11:00 news team there has been in my 45 years of living in Cleveland.
Can’t wait to watch every day. Love it, Love it, love it !!!.
Good to be informed . 😀
No News 1/5
There is very little news on this app. Content is terrible. And, it’s filled with too much junk.
I like getting some of the news 4/5
They could beef it up with more actual news in this area. Seems VERY slanted to sports.
Better performance than older versions 4/5
By Doug Marsh
Much better than previous versions. Loads quicker, and easier to navigate than before
By kelly 54
The only thing that is annoying is when I pick a story to read and want to back where I left off it takes you to the top of the stories instead of where I left off. ANNOYING!
Needs a little more work
Latest Update Stinks 1/5
This news app used to be good. The app is too graphic oriented and has barely any substance. You may as well just delete the app and read your news from their website because the app barely contains any news. Worst news app, ever. Whoever redesigned this app should be smacked hard.
The new UI is terrible! 1/5
I hate the new user interface. Give me a timeline of top/local/national stories and that is plenty. This new app is a data hog too.
New App format clunky 2/5
I don’t usually mind updates and the changes that come with progress, but this new app is clunky and very hard to navigate. Scrolling down to the next article means scrolling past 3 ads every time! Also after reading a report or watching a video clicking the back arrow sends me all the way back to the top instead of where I left off meaning I have to keep scrolling down and clicking.
Terrible UX Design 1/5
The new app isn't good. Sometimes as a designer you shouldn't reinvent the wheel. As a younger user I can't even imagine what it's like for someone who may be older and isn't tech savvy. Did the designers even user test or consider the audience? Perfect example of terrible UI and UX design. Throw it out.
Not good 1/5
Hate the new app. I used the other app daily to track my long commute to work. I loved the real time maps and access to traffic cams so I knew what I was in for during my drive. Now it just links you to Waze! I already tried Waze and hated it! Why do I need in two places. Please put back the original traffic maps!!! Also, too many ads and not as easy as they say to navigate to what you want.
No weekend news!,,,, can't watch live on new app 1/5
Use to be decent. Now it play weather on live broadcast. Please fix it. It would be nice to watch the weekend news in the morning, evening and night. Why can’t this be? I like this channel except for thisb
Hate it! 1/5
By SLC 9876
Why did you change the old app? Hate this new one - so much more difficult to navigate!
New app awful! 1/5
By Game player 142o
This is another example of a good app ruined just to have something new and flashy! Bring back the old one.
Like many arrogant app developers, I was forced to upgrade. Unfortunately they seem to think a flashy, data-hogging format with difficult navigation is better some how than a sleek, easy to use app. I deleted it. Cleveland’s other news providers have keep their simple, user-friendly formats.
New app no good 1/5
All glitz and no substance
Bring back the old app 1/5
Hate the new WKYC app. So much of what was there is gone. No ability to look at news by area. The Indians section used to show the schedule, the standings, the current major league scoreboard - now there’s none if that.
WKYC’s app now looks like the generic NBC apps across the country - lousy.
Bring back the old app!
New version of app is awful 1/5
New app is awful. All ads and horrible navigation
Excellent source for breaking news 5/5
I really like getting notifications of breaking news stories
Volume difference 2/5
By B and T from ohio
We like wkyc channel 3 but bothered by volume reception is so low we have to turn up 3 fold from other stations. What gives? Going on for year.
Keeping in Focus 5/5
This is a Wonderful App, it keeps me Aware to up to the minute News.
