Un-pauseable , un-mutable video. 1/5
I had to delete the app. Every time I would go to the technical weather discussion a video ad would play. Did not matter if I was muted, or on cellular data. I have the app setting set to disabled auto play but they still won’t let you pause or mute.
App Crashes 4/5
Just updated the app this morning (10/24) and it crashes when trying to open it.
Truth seeker 1/5
By mooseknuckle supreme
Liberal bias is not news it’s propaganda
Spell check 1/5
I reed storees veryday on this app
The punctuation and misspelling drives me crazy! Professional journalism should be spell checked
WAY too many useless push notifications 2/5
The app is okay. It’s a little clunky, but I really only care about “latest news”, and that’s easy to navigate to and use. WFSB has great CT news coverage. My huge negative for the app is that it sends what seems like 700 notifications per day and all hours of the night. I know you can turn them off, but it’s a news app - I do want to see a push notification if there’s a breaking news story, or an accident on a major roadway, etc. They do send those types of notifications, but the problem is they also send crap like “Will you need an umbrella tomorrow? Watch the report later!”. Do they really think anyone wants to see that type of push notification? They literally send garbage like that all through the day and night. They also seem to push every news story, including routine articles. I have some national news apps, and they only push something if it’s a huge story. I get maybe one alert every 3 or 4 days from those apps, and it’s for legitimate need-to-know news. The only problem is they are national and of course aren’t going to tell me if there was just a major accident on 95 that has a road closed. WFSB will, but to be honest, you’ll probably miss it because it will be between a “watch live at 6 to see if fluffy got adopted” and “Find our what one Connecticut resident thinks about the changing leaves. Open the app to learn more”.
Annoying adds 1/5
By Dave G (55)
Always have to watch a very long add before viewing videos. Scott Haney is so annoying. He makes my head hurt with his stupid banter.
Disappointed Viewer😞 1/5
By Aggie Tracy
I don’t like the changes, that have been made.
I loved Better Ct, on from three to four. The few times that I have watched it I wasn’t impressed. The whole show is just to rushed.
And, I definitely do not need to see another half hour of news.
Not sure what is going on at the network, but hopefully someone is paying attention!!!

Great work every time. Bruce Deprest The Best
Mama Nolepa 5/5
So nice to have her back
By Bobby Shags
The app is too cluttered.
Weather forecast is not updated frequently enough and you often get different forecasts on different screens.
Needs Fine Tuning 4/5
Overall the app is good. Its easy to use and the content is laid out under subheadings that are easy to navigate. I especially like the reporters on channel 3 and have grown up watching several of them. Denise D’Ascenzo is my favorite anchor and she feels like a part of the family after all these years! I use to love the morning show - they worked well together and had me laughing & looking forward to my morning cup of coffee - but it is not the same or as enjoyable without Irene. Such a bummer! The part that needs some more work is the live broadcast feature. More often than not I am watching the “Be Right Back” screen and seeing the SAME commercial over and over again. I get that commercials pay for the app but can we at least have a variety? I am really resenting State Farm at this point. A better idea would be just to play the news cast as it is, the whole broadcast with the actual tv commercials being played in real time. Why can that not be done? You’d still get the advertising in and we would not have to sit and look at the blue screen for long periods. Fix that and I will change my review from a 4 star to a 5 star.
Self importance 1/5
Eliminating the cbs national news to hear about an antique plane crash at Bradley is awful. Which executive made this decision ? It was a stupid decision.
No search 1/5
On what planet does an app Not have a search function ?
Read not watch 1/5
Please make all stories readable as well as watchable. I don’t want to watch the stories or news. I want to be able to read it when I am not in a situation to watch.
Hate sitting thru a 15 second ad to watch a 10 second story 2/5
Hate sitting through a 15 second add every time I want to watch a story that last 10 seconds.
Brian&sassy& angel 3/5
By Music Man_01
I downloaded your app and it was OK at first but your app was throwing my way to much of advertisement every time I was trying to open the channel 3 app is because too much for me so I remove it you need to fix this problem
The apple application is very glitchy but I love the show!
My App IS updated!!!!!!!!! 1/5
How is it that I keep getting the message my app needs to be updated to see a story???? I keep updating it!!! I close the app, even turn off the phone!!! But.... go to read the story and I get the “your app needs to be updated to see this story!!!!”
Please Fix it!!!!!!!!!!
I get the “ we’ll be right back” message way too often when I try to access WFSB from my I-pad.
Liberal bias 1/5
Not bad for standard issue media, but still has a liberal bias to reporting. Gone are the days of Reporters delivering the facts. It’s all been replaced with leading articles and opinion thinly disguised as news leading heavily to the left. Sad.
They took you away 4/5
I no longer have access to my life long, favorite local news & weather channel! No more Scott Haney or Kelly Rippa in the morning to begin my day! Not Happy!
Best station 5/5
As a volunteer in my community it’s also wonderful to know that major or just events that should be covered get covered , and WFSB has great people that serve everyone, so thank you WFSB 3, you are an amazing channel,and the crews from channel 3 are the best people for our everyday events that you cover
Ad avalanche 1/5
Could be a very good app if we didn’t have to see the same 15-30 second ads repeated with nearly EVERY news article viewed. Unable to skip if desired. I removed the app after just 3 articles viewed.
Stuck on Close Caption. 2/5
Watch the live news and noticed close cation in on. Not able to disable. Noticed to many updates. I like WFSB but there app needs work. Had to uninstall.
Your stories are usually brief to the point of having no information and you never update when you say to check back for updates
Never ending stream of "watch now" alerts lead to dead links and commercials 1/5
By mas90guru ct
This app is ok for reading past news but they send lots of "click here to watch now" link bait which when you click leads to a dead link or a commercial which then leads to stale recorded coverage of 4 hour news.
Number one in great reporting. 5/5
Great station. Listen to you all the time.
Video playback can’t be disabled 2/5
Every time I read an article, the video plays automatically. I disabled video playback in the settings, and the videos still play automatically. This eats up a lot of data. Please fix.
Weather videos are 24 hrs behind 2/5
By Darren W.
Weather videos are from the previous day, not updated regularly. Live streaming of broadcasts is inconsistent and unreliable at best. In other words, you can’t count on this app to give to live or even current news.
Sends out to many notifications 50 or 60 a day.
The text is poorly written. I don't need a comedian I just need facts.
Ch3 is the best 5/5
I love your entire team
Not crazy about it 2/5
By 69 gmail
I have a new iPhone XR. I just downloaded this apps couple of weeks ago. It doesn’t work as smoothly as I feel it should. If I try to watch a latest video forecast, it keeps breaking up into previous videos or advertising. I like the idea of this app. Still not sure if it’s me or the app that’s the problem
WFSB app 1/5
The app just does not work. Always say “will be right back”. Or if I tap on weather. It just won’t play. It freezes
I’ve been watching this station forever. It’s the only one for me!
Way to many notifications of the exact same story, just worded differently. Ridiculous!😠😡
BTW, You Are Not The #1 News Station In CT. NBC has you beat!
I like 2 watch u guy’s everyday morning and ever night 2 U guy’s is the bust news channel Ever there is I only watch u guy’s ever time news on thank I mike palangio

Reliable News 5/5
By Only Natural
Nothing fake here. Trust the best and leave the rest. WSFB Channel 3 News is Connecticut’s number one news station. Thank you!
It’s good 5/5
I just rated it so they would stop asking but besides that it’s good
Ease of operation 2/5
My favorite news app is fox 61 everything is right there when you open the app no clicking to find whatever.
Channel 3 fox 5/5

A faithful viewer 5/5
By sissy ding
Love the morning team! Love all the teams, everything!
CBS app 1/5
Having trouble playing the weather forecast. It gets stuck or simply throws me out of the app.
Not reliable 1/5
By Terra Matris
This app is not reliable...the live broadcast doesn’t always stream...and the weather portion will lag and stop playing randomly.
Just ok 3/5
Downloaded the app to watch live news.
WAY too many skips...like a bad video.
Don't see why they can't fix that.
I understand from a developer’s point of view it may be easier to maintain 1 mobile app versus a few, however I was pushed to download the regular WFSB app because the Weather app was obsolete and is no longer offered in the Apple App Store. I only need this app for weather, however there’s no push notification for only weather, it’s app wide. So now instead of getting an update on the upcoming winter storm I’m getting alerts on “who will be singing during the Super Bowl halftime show.” Ill stick with the Weather Channel app from now on.
