Now add supported and annoyingly so... 1/5
Now when you open the app a full screen add pops up that cannot be closed, you just have to wait for it to go away ( don’t be fooled by the arrow button). It also pops back up at various points while you are using the app. Not at all what I thought the Spectrum News 13 team was about. I deleted the app.
App Doesn’t Work 1/5
The app doesn’t load after the last update. There’s only a spinning circle on the splash screen. Can’t this be fixed? I used to use the app all the time, but then it stopped working.
Not opening 2/5
By ian thackeray
App worked fine for years on my iPhone 6
Don’t know what has happened now I can’t open it
Have spectrum network in the house and other apps the other apps work fine why dosn’t this work
Weather Map 1/5
By 24/7 crap
Either fix your weather map or take it down . Most of Florida is covered in red and violet and it’s clear and sunny. Third time I’ve tried to fix the problem by deleting the app and reloading it! I give up! Channel 9 works fine!
Could not watch live though the app.. 1/5
...at all. Wanted to keep up with hurricane coverage from out of town, nothing but a white screen when I tried to watch “Live”. Switching back to the WFTV app.
Re: Report on the Warrior Games 1/5
Interview by Ashley and a contestant in the discus event. He didn’t need an interpreter (I’m half deaf & heard every word)... insulting to him in my view.
PS: Ybeth & her crew are AWESOME every morning!
Where’s the “News 13+” that’s promoted on your current app?? 2/5
I’ve scoured the Apple Store and can’t find a new version called Spectrum News 13”+”
Wass-app with that?? 😳
Need updated support for larger phones 2/5
This used to be my go to app for news. This app needs to be overhauled to fit the X,Xs, and Xs Max and now the XR phones. The iPhone X has been out for over a year now and this app has not kept up with the times. Please update this app to take advantage of the full screen available on the models mentioned.
Good but... 2/5
This app is good, but not nearly as good as the other Spectrum News app that’s serves the other Spectrum markets. Please update this app to the quality of the other News app.
Weather is fair- don't rely on it in a hurricane. Political news is typical slanted and jaded. Clearly one-sided. Story on Dolphin Research Center had incorrect info provided regarding it being a retirement home for show dolphins?? Wrong!!
I am a member of the center. It could have been a good story if the important parts of the center were highlighted.
Hard to read blank pages 1/5
All you get most times when trying to read the news is a pretty white page with no content.
There may be a worse app out there, I just haven’t found it. This issue has been reported in the past and never fixed.
I downloaded this app to help with Hurricane Irma but got NOTHING out of it. What a waste of effort. Glad I didn't pay anything for it.
Works as advertised… 4/5
I often can't sit in the front of the TV, so I am grateful for something with which I can get local updates.
Also, would you please make a widget for this app on iOS? Thanks.
The most recent update has messed up the local headlines. It just pops up with a white screen.
Used to work well 1/5
By it was good once
This app used to work well. Take a look outside and you'll get better weather info. The app used to work well, but completely blows now. What's the point of tying the weather I was vs where I'm at. No point in having an app that that recognizes where I was and not where I'm at.
Still not working 1/5
Hey! You guys going to fix this app or what? I see the reviews since January are pointing out the same problem and it's still not fixed. SMH
I downloaded this so I could check traffic reports for road closures. It opens to the Add Location page and there's no way to get off it even after adding locations.
Yikes! Won't load any stories 1/5
Installed and it asked me to select a location. I did that and cannot get off of that page. "App Support" just takes me to a sales page for products. Awful.
13news app 3/5
By Wish it would rain
I was excited to see channel 13 had an app for I phones. Maybe it's just that my phone is older (4s) but when you want to read an article, the writing is so small it's difficult to read without making it bigger then it won't fit and you have to keep sliding it side to side. I have other news apps and they don't have that problem. I hope they can correct that issue.
Works well for me! 5/5
I have an iPhone 6S with iOS 9.1.3 and this app works really well for me. I love the weather and the real time traffic is especially helpful because I drive 36 miles to work every day.
News 13+ Brighthouse 1/5
App not working. Awful app.
Error fetching information 3/5
Error fetching information message is strange because there are current headlines on startup even tho you get that error message yet when you go to read an article the error message appears before the article loads
So it's just a weather app? Not really worth downloading especially with all the ads.
Opens in wrong format 1/5
This app is shameful. Opens news stories in a desktop format on my iPhone and iPad. Done and deleted
Super useful tool for Orlando
Grove girl 1/5
Crashes-will not open. Worthless.
Poorly done 1/5
I usually don't write bad app reviews but this needs some work. The app seems to be a responsive 'front door' linking to a back end that is definitely not optimized for mobile. It is very annoying to see an article headline only to class clown through and the fonts be so small it is unreadable. Safari does a better job adjusting the pages than this!
WHERE DID SAFE-T-NET GO??? 2/5
What happened to safety net? I used it a whole bunch!!! Also, the ads are super annoying and the radar is not accurate sometimes...
Not very accurate 2/5
Completely cloudy here on the east coast and both Merritt Island and Cocoa Beach say clear. Who updates this thing!!
Doesn't open 1/5
By I am TK
Why sell add space? It takes up screen space and is annoying - for that alone I will not use this app. The Stormtracker 13 layers do not work or update on the maps but all the other layers do - one would think your layer that the app is named after would at least work - weather channel app is a lot better and updates well.
I downloaded this app but I cant even open it.
Doesnt work 1/5
Installed the app but doesn't open just keeps crashing
Great app but... 4/5
I think there should be a setting to see where cold fronts are and more advanced storm tracking settings other than that it's a great app and I would recommend it to all my friends and family!
Crash, Crash, Trash 1/5
By Del Llano
The app worked fine the first time I opened it and I was excited to have local news and weather at the tip of my finger, but the second time I opened it the app froze. I closed it and then tried to open again and it crashed---perpetually crashed! I am running iOS 6.1.3 with my iPhone 4S. This app has promises but it is "bugged"!!!
Major Disappointment! 1/5
I added this app to my phone the day it launched & it sounded like a great idea. Well, it would be if it worked. I have never been able to get it to load, not once! Guess it's time to delete it. Good idea news13 but horrible execution.
Worst news app by far 1/5
By Anonymous fisher
Nothing on this app worked how it should at all, I deleted it within 30 minutes.
Not working 1/5
By Idontwant a nickname
I can not get this app to work. The first time I try to open it it comes up but no data and I cant click on anything. Every other time I try to open it all I get is the front loading screen. Useless waste of space on my already full phone.
App loads News 13 Web site 2/5
News 13 offers many news stories on a variety of topics. I get much of my local and state news and weather from News 13. I wanted and expected to like the app. Alas, I'm disappointed with the News 13 Plus app.
I clicked on all the news stories. Each one loads the News 13 actual web site, ads and all. The text is very small and impossible to read without pinch and zoom in my iPhone. Additionally, the app does not allow for the user to double tap the screen to auto adjust the text.
Additionally, the radar weather appears to be a snapshot or screenshot from their web site. The radar is not live.
Other local news outlets offer apps with content within the native app and live radar.
News 13 needs to transform its news and weather content to work in the native app and not act as a link to its web site. I will check back occasionally for fixes. In the meantime, I'll get my news and weather elsewhere (at lest on my iPhone).
the information wont load... it has only worked once.
Battery hog. 1/5
By L P Art
This new app. is decent with many useful features, but it is a real battery hog. When the location setting is turned on, the battery drains way too fast. But the location setting is needed to make the alert features useful. Even with the location setting turned off, the app. appears to drain the battery even when the app. is not active. I will remove the app. until it is revised to be more battery friendly.
Misleading. Radar is not live. 3/5
Saw ad on Twitter marketing this as the only app with "live" radar. Not true. Radar updates seem to be 3-5 minutes apart..just like every other app.
Not working 1/5
Happy to add another local weather app and radar to my phone, too bad it's not working. Don't know if it's my new iOS8 but not working at all. Fix and I will try again.
Won't allow location to set and keep.
News 13 plus 1/5
Does not work yet
Great app! 5/5
By Liars, don't buy!!!
Great app! 5/5
Weather map and the storm alerts are fantastic!
