The Advertisements are literally malware ridden sites, beware. 1/5
The ads are offensive, disturbing and quite frankly make me question the judgement of WCAX as a whole. This and the overall performance of the app caused me to uninstall it. And to think Darren Patton’s good name was within 100 feet of
this monstrosity if a news delivery platform. Go home whatever undergrad they hired to build an iPhone optimized app, you’re drunk. I literally deserve to be paid for the advertisement gauntlet of emotional trauma that is this app. Please stay away. I’m willing to update my review, I am not bias. Please reach out
Is this an improvement??? 1/5
I don’t use the WCAX app much, usually just to re-watch a story or see one I missed. Downloaded this version last week. Takes sooooo long to open (to a full page add), looked through “news” for a story from yesterday, didn’t see it. Looked through “local news”, still wasn’t on the list. Meanwhile the app crashed, and had to restart which took at least 30 seconds to load. When I searched by keyword, I found the story I was looking for. Not impressed. iPhone X 11.2.6 on WIFI
Old app was much better 1/5
I don't know who designed the new app but it is horrible. I am considering just using the website because it is so hard to use. I don't normally write bad reviews and I wish I could say good things but it is just really bad.
I’m not a fan of the ads. Especially the full page ad you have to wait for in the beginning. I realize you need the ad revenue but there are too many now. Also, the main reason for my review is the constant crashing. On both my iPhone 6 and my iPad2 mini. I’m beginning to just expect it. I browse through all the headlines first to see if it’ll be worth going back when (not if) it crashes. It Used to be my go to app for local news. Hopefully it gets fixed.
Newsworthy crashes 😩 2/5
This app process a great service for getting both local and national news. HOWEVER on an iPhone6+ it crashes after you read 3-4 items (especially if you load the news video). If this were fixed I’d change my rating!
I noticed all the reviews were deleted 1/5
This app cooks my phone again. Whatever was right in last revision please bring it back. The new version used 25% battery in 8 minutes and my phone and battery suffer because of it. It also plays 2 videos at once. Couldn't stop it.
Crashes and pop-up ads 1/5
Every time you open the app you have to close a full screen ad. Running imbedded video crashes the app. Another disappointment from WCAX.
This app is unreliable 1/5
I go to check school closings today and nothing appeared! I tried it several times but nothing!
Never opens. Then if it does- crash 1/5
Not ipone compatible. .
Old app was better 1/5
The ads are ridiculous. It’s hard to find what I need, especially school closings. And what’s with the closed captioning? I can’t get rid of it, and it completely blocks the video- which I don’t even bother with now. Fix this!
No school closing tab. 1/5
I only used tho old app for school closing because it was normally up to date. Disappointed that it’s not even a tab on the new app.

I get notifications. However no way to readily tell what the notification applies to.
Battery drain 1/5
This app needs to be updated. Serious battery drain when used. I can also cook food with the phone since it heats up so much.
Much better app with some disappointments 2/5
Fast loading on an iPad but to wait 20? Secs for some unrelated ad to play, I have never streamed anything. There use to be a section for comments. It is needed. For example: a stolen green motorcycle was stolen. No information if it had a tag, And seen beefing driven away. What direction? Route? What happen to facts?
really built with so many adds in the way. very annoying. 1/5
sooo many adds in the way ... more add space the news at times... very unfortunate since it used to be better than this .
Be careful 1/5
By Eric Neilsen
Phone becomes insanely hot with this app on. Better than before but these guys need help writing apps.
Not great 1/5
Have settings set to receive notifications, but is sporadic at best - old app worked better - have yet to see what the improvements are!!
Not working? 1/5
I was prompted to "download our new app" and so I did. I open it and it just continually buffers and nothing happens.
Very nice app, love that the streaming live news is back, thankyou!! Loads much faster than the old app, easier to get around, and a much nicer weather section. Who knows....might not need the WCAX standalone weather app any more, we'll see. Great work guys, a winner for me.
