Too Many 3/5
Too many old stories that linger for days. Too many annoying ads.
Ad pusher app👎🏻 1/5
What could’ve been a great news access app is actually an irritating advertisement pushing tool foisted upon us by big media corporations i.e. NBC, as well as CBS and ABC. Too many push notification ads and frustrating streams of video commercials before you can access a story only to be interrupted by imbedded ads within a story. I really can’t endure more than 30 seconds of this app. I’m at the point of deleting it soon!!! Too bad... what could have been very helpful has been destroyed by greedy marketing groups. Follow the dollars $$$$$
Cut off 2/5
By haynie muffin
I have noticed that the stories are cut off by advertisements. It is literally mid sentence. Very frustrating to read a sentence and then scroll down beyond the ad and it’s not a continuation
Rate app, 4/5
Need to change stories more often.
Biased and bring first is not always best 1/5
By Beach bunny 821
Used to love your channel. Your reporting is so biased
App needs help 4/5
I love the content, but the streaming often freezes and repeats.
Frustrating app 1/5
Constantly freezes while watching Live TV or bumps me off...no other Live TV app does this, so it is not my connection...
Interrupted Stories 2/5
Myself and I am sure others have started reading stories only to have those stories blocked by ads that keep the reader from from getting 100% of the story. It’s very annoying and makes me not want to use your app for local news. Disappointed.
Like the App 4/5
But too many push notifications.
Alerts Missing from App 4/5
I get regular news alerts and many of the stories catch my eye. I open the app and the alert is nowhere to be found. In fact, the headlines news tends to be two or three days old.
It would be fantastic if the news alert was in the news.
Same stories, can’t find local breaking news 1/5
By frisco kitty
The ads are awful. Must watch videos. Can hardly ever read stories. Same items stay on website for days. Very difficult to find a specific story. Better than others but I find it frustrating.
By frustrated vewer
Out of date content is frustrating and pervasive. Too many videos now enough content. Easy to navigate.
PATHETIC COVERAGE 1/5
By Elect Trump
Same stories 2-3-4+ days in a row. Is anybody home or do you only work 2-3 days a week???
Pathetic “news “ site.
Nothing to see here folks .... Move along ... same stories 3-4 days in a row. Pathetic “news” site!
Good News App 4/5
By Dr laser
I really like this app. I ise it all the time. My only criticism, and why I gave it 4 stars and not 5, is some ads cut off articles, sometimes in mid sentence, with no completion if the paragraph. I have not found a way around this (on some apps, you can close the ad, and then keep reading).
Not updated enough 3/5
I get better news coverage from following MSN then here. Also when you click on a story some of the sentences are left out right before an ad is placed.
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
To many ads 2/5
I am closing this down. I am so frustrated with the same ads time and time again. What is going on? Some you can skip others you can’t. I understand the the reason for ads, I just am tired of the repetition.
This is the only channel I watch for the news. Channel 13 beats a news story to death.
App issues!! 1/5
This app was great, but now it doesn’t want to play anything on Apple TV except ads. Once the ad stops, the app shuts down. Please fix
R u f’ing kidding me! 1/5
Really, these idiots just showed a Ravens game film from last year like its today with Terrell Suggs and max Williams playing for them and were traded this year!!!!
Big fan but one quirk 4/5
Like this app a lot. It’s the only local news one I follow. Only negative is the news alerts are not always breaking news and too often just stupid. Save this feature for truly BREAKING news and you’d get 5 stars.
Love the app 3/5
Although it just stops and closes the first time you press it most times😕
Good app BUT...... 2/5
By big gjjk
Your app is good nut your radar loop is way too long. Please shorten it up.
Ease up on the push notifications 4/5
I like getting news stories and things as notifications, so I can just look at the banner to see if I’m interested. I do that for several news apps. I dislike that this is the only news app that then leaves the little ‘1’ next to the app. The only way to get rid of it is to go into the app and find the specific story, then open it. This happens once or twice a day too and is quite annoying.
Others may not be as annoyed by it though.
Another thing that would help is some kind of filter by topic. The search function is usually decent at this, but it’s not as great at letting you browse a topic. This is just a potential improvement though.
Great news app 5/5
By Oye Vey!
WBAL app 4/5
I like the app except when I get a news flash and I hit the app button the news flash is not there. Just old stories sometimes days old.
WBAL App 5/5
By gettin to old
I use the app everyday, as I seldom have time to read a news paper. It is up to date and very informative. Thanks
Better would be good. 2/5
By N.Y. grandma
Very poor reporting with little or no details or follow-up to local news. Videos often do not play and there are way too many ads. Weather alerts are meaningless because such a wide area is covered. Does the station want to be for Baltimore or for The Baltimore area?. Weather at the Ocean and at Deep Creek Lake is not weather for Baltimore. Items on the site are often old news and not updated frequently.
WBAL NEWS APP 3/5
By Renee Keys
Alot of times the news is OLD NEWS!!!!Need to keep mobile app updated daily to the current news.Sometimes same stories for days😳
Love the interactive radar 4/5
By Horhay jr
One of my most used apps. I really like the weather updates and video clips of news I missed. Sometimes a little difficult to locate a breaking story but I might be partially at fault. I’m keeping it!
Breaking news? 3/5
By cant stand ya costanza
Seriously I get a breaking news alert to see a headline about a man retiring after blank years etc. if that is what WBAL thinks is breaking news, I’ll go back to Wjz. You keep the same stories on the app for days. Boring. And if there is an alert that I want to find out about, it takes me too long to find it on the app. If you send out an alert, that should be the first story showing when the app opens. Web site 101 people.
I like the app but it’s difficult to get to headline stories from when they pop up. Old news could be erased more quickly. Otherwise it’s useful
Love app 5/5
I Love this app keeps me up on the weather and news around me.I look at it everyday.
Lack of Updates 1/5
I am reading an article right now titled 6 shot overnight, this was Friday night news. You lack updating news especially over the weekend.
Full of old stories and ads 2/5
By A man 77777
I use the a APP every day to keep up with local news. A lot of the stories posted are old stories. Additionally, some of the stories are really poorly written. Also, it’s full of ads.
I love this app.Wbal is my favorite.Videos are terrible,they cut off. I'm about to switch
Mayor Pugh 3/5
What weeks of coverage and no follow up
Behind the times 3/5
News seems later than others media and it stays the same for what appears to be an eternity
The app freezes and crashes at random, when you scroll down to a story that you want to read then you hit the back button it takes you back to the beginning when you want to keep scrolling
Good but needs improvement 4/5
I use this app several times a day. My only complaint in terms of its use and need for improvement would make it better. It is not updated as I would expect. Stories are listed on the home page for days when newer “news” has not yet appeared. Seems like there should be a way to do immediate links to on air stories
Weather feature stinks 1/5
By ki shore girl
The weather portion of this app used
To be pretty accurate and helpful. Now it seems it doesn’t update quickly and the radar isn’t that good anymore either. When you see a storm coming and click on the icon to see the direction it’s gonna hit it takes you back like 5 hours prior and if you hit future it doesn’t show if the current storm coming is actually gonna hit your town.
Great App, minor flaws 5/5
I use this app several times daily for weather and local news. Very accurate and concise. Some stories could use a little editing.
1. Some of the old stories stay on the feed for weeks 😖. Use this room for new stories.
2. When clicking on an alert the story is “not available “ and the headline disappears so read the headline before clicking on it.
Give us a choice on the Audio!!!
The same stories can be on the news page for weeks.
Disappointing at best 2/5
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.
But at least you can watch the same commercial multiple times.
By complaint 4
I am tired of being told I haven’t open the app and you keep telling me you will turn my app off. I open my several times a week.
Thanks for being there 5/5
So maybe you are not perfect but it works for me. I like that I can get news & weather when I want. If I choose not to open so be it. But I do fairly often.
Good station 5/5
By stu 1960
Love this station they tell you all the news
Bogus notifications 4/5
I will receive a notification and then I receive another notification 1/2 hour later and is the same story. Also, notifications from WJZ arrive before WBAL.
