Great except the ads 4/5
I really appreciate the flexibility of watching news anytime; but the ads are repetitive and annoying! Clean it up before you lose your followers.
silly alerts 3/5
sorry BAL but your news alerts are so silly i turned them off. wish you showed some discernment.
I love this app.Wbal is my favorite
App ( Insert Ad) is Opps( Insert Ad) Mediocre 2/5
Once Upon A ( Insert Ad ) Time You Could Read /Watch News for Updates/ Informative Subject Matter. But Alas I Was In Another ( Buy This Product ), or Ask Your Doctor For on Heck You Don’t Get It. But Opt Out By Paying Extra!!
Just Pathetic The Way Things Are.
Now Back To Interrupting Whatever You Were Baited To Read...
By frustrated vewer
Out of date content is frustrating and pervasive. Too many videos now enough content. Easy to navigate.
Favorite news app 5/5
This is the news app I go to for the latest and updated news and weather forecasts. Keep up the good work!
Please Update The Site More Often 2/5
My major turnoff is the fact your site is not updated on a more frequent basis, seems like stories out there for days and I do not expect any updates to the stories over the weekend. Please update your site more frequently!
So ad-ridden its hardly useful 1/5
By Tim Post
Sorry, WBAL, I’ll always be a loyal watcher, but this app is so crusted with repetitive, invasive ads that I deleted it. Every story you click force plays the same ad you just saw, unless you scroll fast enough to make it stop and scroll back up. Then there’s ads all through the content, some of it junk syndicated stuff- I know you need to make money but this just isn’t working for me. I’m tired of seeing ads for stuff I was just shopping for elsewhere. And you have invested almost nothing in features around good content. The only use left is school closings and I can get that easily elsewhere.
If you put the focus back on the user experience, let me know, and I’ll be back.
Rate app, 4/5
Need to change stories more often.
Needs a time stamp on story updates 3/5
By Former Huff Fan
It would be better if date and time is listed for stories. Too many old ones are left in so it is very confusing.
Tv news 5/5
Love watched by your channel 11 we do not not like 13 news after what Marty said to the Public it was wrong Children was invole I lost all respect for him
It is one of my daily go to apps that is always updated very quickly
Okay app 2/5
I find the app is just okay. I’m alerted by other sources much faster to breaking news. Lot of stale stories hang around too long. And odd alerts pop up to headlines that happened more than a week ago as if they just happened.
Need a more dynamic app.
A Question on What is News? 3/5
By Cowboy R.
I have a problem when a news reporting page that is supposed to be balanced focuses on a women's march that has less people attending than a Right to Life March?
Not up to the minute 3/5
I check my WBAL news app every day. I am tired of seeing stories of very little merit repeated sometimes for 3 or 4 days. I think someone needs to edit and groom the newsfeed much more carefully.
Terrible app 1/5
You get 6 ads in a row whenever you try to watch a video, after watching all 6 ads they just play again the exact same ones over and over.
What I think 5/5
By Road Dr. Dave
I personally love the app it gives me information during the day up to date. Keeps me in the know and let me look up old news I gave it five stars
By Beall 2
The WBAL app seems to provide news highlights that are slightly slanted or one-sided. You should rectify this methodology of presenting the news.
Needs work 2/5
This app needs some serious overhaul. Stories repeated..many delays..just a shame that no one is paying attention.
WBAL app 3/5
I like the weather and radar sections. The news is usually dated and the stories add little to the headlines. In addition stories are not updated and stay on the app for weeks with no new information.
Great one 4/5
By Weather wanted
I use the app everyday for the weather forecast. I love it! Occasionally use it for the news. I like the radar and fact that the weather is updated at least once a day. I wish they would remove old forecasts as they are useless.
The problem I find with your app is when I get the alerts, I go to get the information and the article hasn’t posted yet. Very frustrating.
Best news app ever 4/5
By Mr. Sooth
This is the Best news app ever up to date news local and national up to date weather and I can't say enough about the traffic update u can see traffic LIVE on live cam. I LOVE this app it's a must have. Great job
ROYAL SCREWUP 1/5
By Elect Trump
Whomever is responsible for creating this piece of trash should be fired! Did they just graduate from Wal•Mart??? Site really stinks.
Updated infrequently. Same stories left on here for 5-7 days or more.
This site is probably the worst news site that I visit.
Three months later nothing has changed. Still the most boring news site around. Can’t you update your stories more often than every 3-7+ days???
By Notorious ECC
I like the app, but I think the postings are not current. Stories are not updated. Oftentimes they remain on the site for days. Please report the news in real time.
Slow to update articles 3/5
news stories remain for days past relevancy and sometimes stories are reported as news way after they have been on other outlets. As a subscriber to a local cable provider there should be an option to log in to app with provider information and receive more update to date news and more stories. Hearst is a large company i find it hard to believe it can update and provide more news coverage
Notifications - details cannot be found 2/5
By help me make it
Many times I receive notifications of breaking news and cannot find the details in the app. I should not have to search for breaking news if you sent me a notification. Now cast is often unavailable. I find your notifications annoying.
No more traffic info? 2/5
By App sad
I have used this app several times a day since it became available. I check it for news, weather and traffic information. Unfortunately it appears that the WBAL app no longer offers traffic info. That option is missing so no more traffic maps or cameras or anything related to traffic that I can find on the app. I depended on this a lot and I’m sorry to see that they removed it.
WBAL watcher 2/5
By WBAL watcher
When I receive a news notification and tap on the app, I don’t see the news story, just outdated headlines.
I really like the app and I use it just about every day. There are two things that I don’t like. The first is that some stories stay on the app for days or even months and the space could be used for other stories. The second issue is that often times you read a headline and open the story and it has nothing to do with the headline. You really want to read the story that the headline was leading up to but the story that you open has nothing to do with it. A big let down.
By DB #10
I like this app but its need to update stories more frequently. At the end of the app are stories that linger a long time.
It’s also frustrating to read a story and then get taken back to the beginning of the app, not being sent to where you left off.
The app used to be updated more frequently, but often the information is the same for several days especially the weekend. The news on the website is updated frequently, but the app seems to lag. Often, I get news alerts from WBAL, but when I go the site, I do not see the link. I have to hunt. I can only find it if I catch the alert on my screen. If I missed it or face id im out of luck. I just check another local news app and find info quicker. WBAL used to be my primary, but not anymore. Disappointed because its my fav news channel.
Too many ads 2/5
By Corrie 599
Thanks for providing news, but please...don’t force users to watch an ad before each news story! I and I’m sure most users are never influenced by such ads. They are an annoyance that I do my best to simply tune out.
My review. 4/5
I enjoy the app a lot when out of town. I still get to see my local news and weather.
I do wish I could choose where to start watching a 2 1/2 hour news though. I don’t want to start at 5:30am. Rather start a little later like 7:30ish.
I love the interactive weather map!
Needs work 1/5
By Timonium Tim
Push alerts aren’t readily on the site and like others have commenced some me of the “news” is old old.
Not the most current of the moment news.
I have mostly enjoyed this app since its inception. However what I dislike the most are two annoyances: 1. Some stories stay at or near the end for weeks if not for months. 2. Too many stories that I finish reading revert you to the very beginning of the app instead of taking you back to where you last left off. Very annoying. When this happens more than twice I will quit the app and not view any other stories or news items. I don’t want to waste so much time re scrolling back where I left off. This should be addressed ASAP.
Great team . I am amazed with the ease with the way you introduced the new commentators. 5/5
By Mr. Franc
That is why I stay channel 11 LLL. Keep up the great work. Thank you FRANC. in. Westminster
Pretty Good 3/5
I look at the app at least twice a day, and it’s somewhat informative. I would like the station to update the information more often and provide more Baltimore area stories.
Push Notifications won’t open properly 4/5
Great other than when I want to read a story that I get a notification for. When I open a push notification the app just takes you to the home page and then you’re forced to dig around for the article (and good luck finding it.)
Disappointing at best 3/5
Usually does not work well. Try to watch noon news and maybe you can or maybe you get repeating ads and then it crashes. Does stutter too. The one day it did work, it was fine but that was not common. If i want news, I go online and read. Using latest IOS.
Great app 5/5
Always has the latest news
Pastor Shavers 5/5

Good apt 5/5
Informative . Especially when I need local alert issues
Love the App 5/5
By Brynna's Mommy
I depend on my WBAL News app to keep me informed throughout my day and they never disappoint me.
WBAL NEWS MOBILE APP 2/5
By Renee Keys
I find that some stories are old and it doesn't seem like the app is updated frequently.Sometimes very little info on the stories,not a full story given.Overall the app needs to be updated daily!!!!Some stories there for over 4-5 days!!!!!
Good news articles hampered by terrible UI 2/5
WBAL has interesting timely news articles and notifications but the UI of this app is atrocious. It's slow, clunky and you can't save the articles using common, popular apps like Pocket. This app needs to be re-worked from the ground up in a new fresh modern format.
Keeps me uptodate 5/5
By Lil' Mary Sunshine
I rely on it to keep me up on the latest news all day and all night. I like the alert sounds to tell me to check my phone.
Great News 5/5
I love WBAL app. I use it several times during the day to keep myself informed of what is going on in my city. The side stories are always informative. If I could give you 100 stars, I would because your APP deserves it
Terrible App 1/5
Continually inserts commercials before connecting. Then it does not connect and the commercial starts again.
