  • WBIR App Review 5/5

    By WBIR App User
    I think the app is amazing. It is very user friendly. It helps through out the day. The notifications are greatly appreciated by me. The stories are well written and get to the point. Overall this app is amazing and I definitely recommend it for anyone looking for an app that is easy to use. I rated this app 5 stars! 😀
  • Worst app for news now! 1/5

    By Tt1284
    Renewed the app and it is terrible now! All the ads are a pain! Keeps jumping to the beginning all the time! Give me back the old app! This sorry! A station as big as channel 10 should have better design than this!
  • Not so great 1/5

    By Spooner'sMom
    I watch the TV Channel, but this app is in great need of repair. If I get a notification to go to the app to read something important, it is rarely there. Or it shuts down and takes me completely out. The news is not always up to date with the stories not complete. I rarely use this app anymore as the other news stations give much better and complete and correct news stories.
  • Ted Kennedy App? 1/5

    By FMF8404_Doc
    How did this think get such high ratings? It crashes faster than Ted Kennedy driving home after a bender!
  • Terrible app. 1/5

    By jdmllm4
    WBIR has always been my favorite news channel but I have downloaded this app three times and get hijacked every time. May have to try WATE to see if it's any better.
  • Crashes 1/5

    By Butrosë
    Constant crashes. As soon as the app opens, it crashes, even after hard resetting phone, deleting app and installing it again, it still crashes. Time for an update!
  • Shamrock 4/5

    By Linlorra
    Enjoy using this app
  • WBIR-TV 1/5

    By BBSj10
    WBIR-TV and the WBIR-TV app were my favorite channel and news app until the layout of the weather and school closings changed. I dislike the app and the layout of the weather on tv! Ugh!!! Please stop changing things!
  • Much improved App 4/5

    By Sick & Easy
    Really like WBIR-TV, and now I like their app better. It's the first app I go to for news. Their separate weather app is also good. There is no perfect app, but this one is good. However, I really don’t like all the ads. One has to make way thru ads to get to news. After several months it is still one of my "first go" app for news.
  • Don’t like updated version 3/5

    By WBIR Fan!?
    What’s with all the ads? And it constantly jumps around. Please get it back the way it used to be. I can’t tell news stories from ads anymore! I have to hunt for the news!
  • Thank you App Team! 5/5

    By Ulafromtennessee
    Received an answer from App Team they are checking on the hijacking to App Store. Just downloaded 10 news again. Best local news and easy to navigate. THANK YOU
  • WBIR 4/5

    By Mike B. 417
    I love the news cast over all. There app sometimes will act up some and repeat things or words people speak.
  • Immediate news 4/5

    By smokysal
    Informative and a variety of subjects. The only thing I object too is the constant ad boxes embedded among the stories.
  • Turned into near hijacker app 2/5

    By TNZooKeeper
    Until latest versions, this was my favorite app for local up to the minute news. However, using the app now results in numerous trips to the App Store by just opening an article. Even if I close the App Store and go back to WBIR-TV app, it immediately jumps back to the App Store with a different App from the adds. So once that cycle starts you can't end it. Even if I have the App Store open with an App I am looking at, WBIR-TV app takes it over. I emailed the support weeks ago and got the expected nothing. So this review to warn others.
  • Better news from 3 day old paper 1/5

    By Stipinsie
    If you are looking to find the most misspelled words or inaccurate stories, this is the app for you. It’s like a third grader writes their stories. The new app constantly sends you to ads and the App Store for garbage you don’t want. Guess they think people in Tennessee are inbred idiots and won’t notice.... Not user friendly. Has same tired stories day after day. Traffic option is joke. Save your time and download any other local channel app. Or really just watch Fox News. These untalented folks just recycle everything the Nationals carry. Straight from the heart and straight to the dumps!
  • Constantly throws me to the App Store 1/5

    By Abh1980
    I can’t read an article without getting thrown to the App Store. Like I’ve clicked an advertisement...only I haven’t clicked anything. Then when I try to close the App Store and go back to the article, it keeps flipping back to the App Store. To the point that I have to do a hard close on both apps to get it to stop. VERY FRUSTRATING!
  • Why go to App Store 1/5

    By BChris379
    Every time I open a story, after a few seconds, the App Store opens. Please fix this. The WBIR app is useless in this incarnation.
  • Pop-up ads 1/5

    By Simpsonra
    Whenever I go to the WBIR-TV app, I get pop-ups constantly. I get to read a couple of sentences and then the ads start. I’m not happy!
  • Terrible!!! 1/5

    By Noneedtoo
    Every time I open and try to read a story the app takes you to the App Store??
  • Jast865 1/5

    By Mastevens
    Open up app, then it'll go the App Store. Need to update for crashes and sending you off to who knows where?
  • Constant pop up adds 2/5

    By Amandarroberson
    The app used to work great. Now I only have it open for seconds before it sends me to the App Store with adds. It is impossible to read more than a sentence of an article before the next pop up.
  • Great Local Coverage 5/5

    By Realtor_JS
    WBIR-TV app offers great news coverage for the Knoxville metro & East TN area. I use it and the WBIR Weather app quite frequently to check on the local news, especially when it’s breaking news that might not be on the TV station until the next broadcast.
  • Hard to maneuver 1/5

    By Eab7403
    The site is hard to maneuver through the apps.
  • Love the friendly morning greetings!!! 5/5

    By TinaFLKeys
    Great local coverage!!
  • Videos die but not before ad finishes 1/5

    By Machination Nation
    Well folks, why can’t you offer more than sprinkler protection ads? Wanted to watch "cute" raccoon/cat rescue but got nothing but black screen after ad AND a locked up app...no good.
  • Notifications 2/5

    By Lakerogers
    As far as news goes, it's pretty good The notifications need more moderation. Why do I care that corker called trump childish? That's not breaking news. Someone needs to moderate the "breaking news" notifications better. We only need to know IMPORTANT breaking news with notifications.
  • WBIR 5/5

    By Papaw in TN
    This app is a great source for news. I use it everyday to stay in touch.
  • News Update 4/5

    By Sydmegkatdru
    Very thorough news highlights and great weather coverage. Use everyday.
  • App constantly crashes!! 2/5

    By Debo771
    I've had this app for a while because I like the station. It's as though whoever is in charge of the app almost doesn't care if the app works correctly or not. I travel a lot, and like to keep up to date in things back in Knoxville and surrounding areas. It's frustrating when you can get some of the news, or occasionally the app will open for a second then crash. Again, as though no one cares if the app works or not.
  • Good app. 5/5

    By bgs1815
    WBIR is my go to app and TV.
  • Simply the best! 5/5

    By ryannek
    From the heart.... professional and personal, WBIR-TV is my source for everything. Wherever I happen to be this app lets me take them with me; and that's all good because they make me feel at home. Actually, I think they are my family !

    By D.Daniel8 B.
    I think it is handy to have all the news as it happens ! Easy to maneuver . Enjoy the vote app in the WBIR-TV site. I would recommend it for anyone who likes the local weather and other great articles ! Great site ! Get it !
  • Don't like the new lay out 1/5

    By Hoffman31
    Don't like the lay out
  • Needs Some Improvement 3/5

    Stories are grouped under icons that sometimes makes it difficult to find specific stories. Stories, especially sports, are not updated in a timely manner.
  • WBIR T.V 5/5

    By Two big feet
    Five thumbs Up!
  • Live Streaming 1/5

    By KarN4U
    I try to catch the news by live streaming on your channel from my IPhone, one of the latest, newer models, but it's very bad , to much buffering.
  • Pretty Good 4/5

    By Viperf68
    Pretty Good app
  • Good layout 4/5

    By TheFryedaddy
    Simple uncluttered layout compared to other local News sites.
  • Ok app 5/5

    By Shaggy62
    Great app, easy to use
  • Ok but hard to navigate 4/5

    By Pippin Walks
    The stories are all grouped under an icon but it makes it hard to find a story sometimes. Wish there was an option for text only and no video
  • WBIR 5/5

    By Nana Katydid!
    i lovd using this app! It is my go to for the weather report.
  • Annoying App 1/5

    By iCrazy
    Slow to load and very heavy with ads that keep slowly popping up. It's almost like it is not really a news app. It's just a mish mash of Nothing. Blazing at the top is a link to the Giraffe Cam. Is that news? No! But they seem to think so.
  • Great news app 5/5

    By Scarlett_Mo
    If I need to know local & national news quickly, this is the place to go.
  • Could Be Better 3/5

    By keeso
    I would like to see more updates during the day with breaking news...other news competitors have more updates during breaking and ongoing news events
  • Informative 5/5

    By 4570085322679
    I can always find the latest new.
  • Weather update 1/5

    By Hicksj1167
    I do not like new update. You have nothing to show the allergens like before, you have to search everywhere to find what was a simple process before. All around this new update is terrible, leaves a lot to be desired. Weather part is the worst. You ask me to rate and if I don't want to give you a star it will not let me rate. The new update is very slow to load and just throws you off. Liked the older version better.
  • Good source of news. 5/5

    By Scifygal
    I enjoy getting my news texts to keep me informed about local events.
  • Love this app! 5/5

    By Tsgibs
    Use it every morning to check the weather.
