WFAA - News from North Texas app reviews

  • News staff shines during on-air coverage of Dallas tornado 5/5

    By Miss G's Mom
    Maria Sevedra, Jessie Huwela, Kyle Roberts and all the behind-the-scenes studio folks did a masterful job of providing vital information during the non-stop unscripted on-air coverage of the weather events Sunday evening. The studio staff, along with numerous WFAA reporters and photo-journalists out at the various scenes of damage, did an excellent, compassionate job of keeping the public informed and safe. I was particularly impressed with the way the reporters always asked those being interviewed on scene if they were OK, and always expressed sincere concern for the losses people may have experienced. There is a different “feel” to the reporting at WFAA and ABC — it’s why the station has been my “go to” for news and weather coverage since I moved to North Texas in 1971. Kudos!
  • Weather 5/5

    By D J Denton
    Jessie did a fantastic job tonight reporting the weather, especially since my daughter and her family live in North Dallas and when they lost power I had to relay messages to them on their phone. Wish you had a way to communicate with ch 8 on your website
  • Old radar was much better 1/5

    By Dallas8
    New radar can not move.
  • Deleting this one 1/5

    By Nostal23
    Weather radar is so convoluted and full of ads that it is difficult to see any details
  • WFAA app 1/5

    By youask for reveiw

  • Terrible App 2/5

    By lurnch
    Your new App is awful !! It’s hard to navigate & is lousy with trying to find the local news .
  • Love the Coverage 5/5

    By Geterdonenana
    I do not live in the State of Texas but have many friends there. I love the news coverage you provide daily. Thank you
  • updated 1/5

    By kane's dad
    Had WFAA app for years, recent update (horrible). Since deleted
  • Weather 3/5

    By BaylorMom
    I liked it better when WFAA had its own weather app.
  • Thanks for the time and effort! 5/5

    By TX Nell
    Contributes to being in “the know”!
  • Best news in DFW 5/5

    By Sueindallas
    I’ve watched WFAA since 1967, and the quality of news has stayed consistently excellent.
  • Original App was better 1/5

    By zeckcamp
    This app is difficult to maneuver through.
  • Best News App for Dallas Fort Worth 5/5

    By DallasTodd
    WFAA #1 Dallas Legacy station.
  • Terrible update 1/5

    By Gla5sman78
    The new app version is terrible. Loaded with ads and repetitive stories. Needs to be simplified again for heavens sake remove all the ads.
  • WFAA update 1/5

    By AnnaChenette
    Horrible. Keeps asking me to download the update. The slot machine add is on every other page. Can’t find the content I want.
  • Yes! 4/5

    By Swj19472012
    Nice app! I’d pay if it would get rid of the ads but I don’t see any options for that . Anytime you want to see a video you have to watch a 10 or more second ad
  • Even these reviews are mostly ads! 1/5

    By Lmundy1
    There are two types of reviews in this section. There are glowing five-star reviews about how great WFAA’s on-air news program is, which is true - best in D/FW. Then there are one- and two-star reviews about how horrible this redesigned app is, which is also true. Filter out the glowing praise for the live-tv news program, and you’ll see that the consensus is that the new app is simply news text from the teleprompter interspersed every few lines with three flashy horizontally-arrayed ads for toenail fungus cures, bad restaurants - you name it, it’s there with big color graphics. At least when I’m watching the news on live tv, I can make a quick restroom trip when the commercials start running. My #1 local news source is no longer my #1 online local news source.
  • Worst app ever! Deleted immediately! 1/5

    By Hashi G
    If I could give this “upgrade” (HA!) a ZERO I would! You’ve totally ruined what WAS the best weather app out there. It also freezes in the middle of trying to get to the weather and weather stories. I’m deleting this and going to different Pp, one that can get news and weather right - in TX we need radar that works! There is nothing here but a jumbled, cluttered mess! Bring back the old one and I’ll come back but this mess I’m DELETING! Goodbye WFAA app!
  • App downgrade? 1/5

    By Flackerdog
    Radars are worse than before. Not as many views or displayed where you can’t see all the areas. No traffic map - guess I’ll use other apps for weather and traffic. Don’t like the organization of the app at all. Too confusing to navigate.
  • Enjoying WFAA 5/5

    By SamAustin57
    Visit the DFW area often, as my daughter lives there. Must have quick access to news, events and weather. WFAA gives me this.
  • The best start to my day 5/5

    By Sassette57
    Man, I watch every morning to see what my commute and the weather is going to be like. I laugh because my grandchildren will come in to watch the news when I’m in my bathroom getting ready. I have three little Gregs at the house. I love the new app because I am able to watch on my phone while getting ready while my grand babies watch while sitting on my bed lol. The app also enables me to keep up with the latest and I can catch up on anything I missed the night before. I can go on and on but I won’t... suffice it to say I love it whoop whoop!🙌😄❤️
  • Weather and traffic 1/5

    I honestly gave this a try since WFAA was my primary source of news. I just delete it because the weather is not current. It was hailing outside when radar shows clear. Also good luck with finding traffic. The old app was a lot easier and weather was current. Heading over to NBC5.
  • 5 star rating 5/5

    By CNMC613
    Always up to date & accurate, very professional.
  • Hate the new app 1/5

    By Lilhate
    This new app is horrible! Not user friendly at all.
  • Old App much better 1/5

    By dickg55
    Especially the weather radar. Too much clutter. Liked the previous version that had local/ regional radars. Very difficult to navigate.
  • No Longer a WFAA App User 1/5

    By SJD1A
    WFAA is my preferred local source of information. However, as an IT designer of apps, this one is difficult to navigate. PLEASE bring back the old version and customized weather radar map.
  • Traffic 1/5

    By wittyrock
    Good luck finding traffic information
  • Killer app 5/5

    By Opp412
    Love it!
  • New app 1/5

    By cjbobu
    I do not like what y’all did with your app. Sorry, you didn’t do yourself any favors with the changes you made.
  • Thank you 5/5

    By Lky 7
    You all Rock!!
  • New app 1/5

    By Devin94
    Lousy previous app was 500%+ better!!!!!!
  • They broke radars 1/5

    By Healuc
    Apprehensive when I saw new version. Downloaded and radars show clear when it is clearly raining outside. Sad they broke the main reason I used this app. Switching over to nbc5 app whose radar at least is accurate.
  • Ch 8 news coverage 4/5

    By clear cara
    Love the 5 pm coverage because the cast is bubbly when the report calls for it. Compassionate when telling of heart touching citizens bravely remaining hopeful. & silly when we need to lighten up. Luv Chris, Cynthia & Pete !
  • Don’t like this New app! 1/5

    By Frostychic
    This new app is not near as easy to use as the old one. It was just fine! Why change it?? The Vote section is crap. I can’t even hardly see the thing I’m supposed to dial. It’s just frustrating. Bad design. Bring back the other one.
  • Truthfully...I am biase 5/5

    By zippypc
    When it comes to WFAA. Living in a small town with Dallas as our playground for shopping, restaurants and cultural happenings WFAA was the station to watch plus reading the daily newspaper “The Dallas Morning News”. My grandmother was a subscriber hence my parents were too! I moved to Dallas and WFAA kept me in a comfortable place with the quality newscasters etc.. Their passion for good journalism beams! I am back in my hometown but not without WFAA and The Dallas Morning News. Thank you for continuing quality journalism in the metroplex and beyond!
  • LOL 1/5

    By Any not already taken?
    As most business do, WFAA clearly asked people(friends and family) to give 5 stars to drown out the bad reviews! After the launch they had like 2.6 stars with a page of bad reviews and now magically they are back up and there are a barrage of glowing reviews! IF IT AIN’T BROKE DON’T FIX IT!!!! The only problem with the old app was the lack of proofreading before posting stories. But I could live with that because the stories were easy to access and sorted by topic. Also the weather radars were better than some of the actual weather apps. This new version is a jumbled mess that I will be deleting.
  • More streaming time 3/5

    By Stream live longer
    My app seem to stop streaming live at 7am after the early morning New is over. Then I have to find another channel to begin watching GMA
  • Clicks 1/5

    By randomguy3333
    So many clicks to get to local radar
  • Ehh 3/5

    By weena1022
    So far, I like the old app better.
  • Your new website 2/5

    By Ruby Duby Doo
    I don’t like your new website, especially the weather. The other one to me was great. Why fix something if it ain’t broke? Old saying.
  • Gonna light ag 5/5

    By drycoyote
    Too many interception / fumbles who’s gonna light a fire under the cowboys
  • New app 1/5

    By awcolbert
    Hate the new app! It is so slow to open from page to page. Any link that you do hit takes forever to open and often sends me to a different add heavy location.
  • Great new app 5/5

    By Mamafrog08
    Much faster than old app. Used it to watch Amber Guyger trial.
  • Worse redesign of an app 1/5

    By clbish
    This use to be my go to for local new and especially weather. Weather radars at the worst. Glad there are other options of apps for the DFW area.
  • Changes 3/5

    By dee's kitchen
    Not as easy to access the weather radars as the old app
  • Terrible and buggy. Pretty but soon to be deleted 1/5

    By Mztrbrown
    Crashes. And i don’t like being force-fed the news you think I'm interested in.
  • Very informative 5/5

    By Reggie15
    Love the timelessness of your reporting. Great job.
  • New version lacks a lot 2/5

    By txcatlvr
    I think this new version has less of what I want to see and/or I can’t find it on the new app. I’d like to see the forecast - highs and lows for at least five days right up front on the weather tab. Also, it’s not as easy to find things like “vote” or “traffic”. Now you have to hunt and keep scrolling to find them.
