Not good 1/5
After I open the APP it has the news stories presented. But after clicking on one story there is no way to get back to the summary you looked at when you opened the APP. Terrible design.
Won’t scroll 3/5
Started using new update this week. Not any better than before.
Sometimes I get a menu bar, sometimes I do not.
When I scroll trough headlines the app takes me back to top and reloaded the page. Can’t get passed the first 5 headlines.
Works this way on iPhone and iPad. 😕
Unusable news app 1/5
No matter how much I want like this app it always disappoints. Navigating thru the pages is a nightmare and its almost impossible to get back to the starting page. Especially on IOS.
Not optimized for IPhone X 1/5
The iPhone X has been out for almost a year and this app is not optimized, Also the app is very buggy as well. App crashes in the Wink of an eye, can’t navigate the app without crashing. The developers who published this app should be fired. I won’t recommend this garbage app to anyone, what a disappointment Wink.

Doesn’t work as it should...used to work better.
Not working 1/5
The app isn’t working even after the last two updates.
New update 6/8/18 still not working 2/5
new update and updated the app. Still no luck with push alerts. The bar at the top is black. Usually has an settings option, that is missing. The Wink Weather app is working perfectly.
Wink News 1/5
Probably the worst app I have ever used! Send push alerts and try to open the alert and it isn’t even listed! Videos won’t play...just an awful app!
21/2 Stars 2/5
I really like this News App when it works.
No sound 1/5
By Saxon Beach
There is no sound to the videos. Great if you can read lips. Also the constant from strolling after reading an article from the top back to where you were is extremely annoying and probably not worth the effort because half of the stories say “There are no further details at this time check back to later” and then there is no update later.
I wish it would work. I would appreciate being able to check a little nervous but on this app it is next to impossible.
How to fix live video portion 5/5
Updates are not patching right. Delete app and reinstall new version. Watch live will work.
Absolute Crap! 1/5
By Bonita Bob
Won't complete "update". Won't open. Can't delete. Review is really negative 5 stars. Fix this app so that I can delete it.
Wink news 1/5
Site shuts down often! Have to delete and restore! Why?
Not good 1/5
Whoever designs this app doesn’t do a good job. It’s garbage.
Sometimes it opens, mostly it doesn't 1/5
An interesting app except for the fact that most of the time the app will not open or if it does, it opens to a white page with no information.
During the hurricane I had to keep taking the app off my phone and putting it back on in order to get information.
When I really need it (Irma) it closes when you hit Weather update....useless
Used to work 1/5
By Marian Lorie
My app no longer works...except I DO get invites to go to the map. But it's "temporarily out of service" .....for the past month!
So if you want to watch the news you'll have to find a different app from a different station (that works).
I'll keep checking back...but whoever is in charge of making certain the app is even working might consider this one of your heads up.
Fix This App 1/5
By Roberto Cole
News cuts out every 10 minutes. Have to restart everytime. Can't somebody at the station fix this problem? Other local stations don't have this problem.Please fix!
This app works like it's 1985. After reading a story it goes back to the top of page one instead of where you were scanning before meaning you must scroll through all the same stuff to get back to where you were. Most of the stories are poorly written and incomplete. Stories that need updating never are.
Needs work 2/5
I'm a self-processed newsie; I enjoy staying up-to-date on my local news, as well as national and world news and breaking stories.
This app makes it difficult to navigate with ease through it's contents. The back button (so I can go back to the headlines to click on) rarely works. I usually have to press it numerous times and then it will freeze or take me to the place where I can upload pics and add descriptions so the wink news team can investigate or look at pictures of on-going events.
Or, when I use the back button, it'll split the screen so that a small portion is the menu and the large portion is a news story I was reading. When that happens, I can't choose anything to read.
Nothing to see here. 1/5
By Pet Gear Depot
I wanted a local news app for on the go lifestyle. App is just a blank white screen. Nothing to see here. iOS 10.1.1
Terrible app 1/5
By Bad app 2
This is a terrible app, would not recommend to anyone, constant 504 error, whatever that is, constant locking up, release only by shutting down device completely. WINK has always been my go to news, I am now using NBC-2, sorry...
Great app! 5/5
Best news app in Fort Myers
I love this app, I get notifications of weather, traffic and news. Good source of info.
Could be better 3/5
Clean app if would work correctly
I tap on a tile and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't
Did work fine 1/5
Wink you messed up app with update. Slower, arrow back just opened menu. Not sure why you had to mess with it. It worked better before.
Great updates, content inaccessible 1/5
I receive lots of interesting notifications, however, the functionality of the app is terrible. You can't get to where you want to go. I finally just deleted it! Better luck next try WINK!
Doesn't work 1/5
Headline appear, you click to read and get nothing. Really? It's not that difficult to make an app that shows posts. Get a developer that j owns what they're doing.
Very cool app 5/5
It's about time a SWFL tv station came out with a really good and useful app. Love the push alerts and that I can get Fort Myers news when I'm out of town.
Best app if it worked right! 2/5
By CC Weather Lover CC
The radar does not work with the re-designed version. The radar on the news app is better then the wink weather app which is why I prefer the wink news app. Tap weather, then radar, and nothing just a blank screen. There are control up top but you can't access them because the wink news banner covers it. For some reason they just can't make the radar work through the news app...... It's been a problem in all the versions.
Current & Relevant App 4/5
I really appreciate the relevant and breaking news that WINK's app posts. I like keeping abreast of current events and this app is good in providing that. I have not had any issues with this app.
App not connecting 3/5
The App doesnt appear to be connecting now. It worked fine until about a week ago. Has a change been made that wasnt pushed out to update the App?
No ipad 1/5
By Moi San
Doesn't work on ipad
Does NOT work at all 1/5
This is the first app I downloaded that does not work. I tried many times to delete it and re-install it with no luck. I have an iPhone 5s. AT&T said its the app, not my phone.
Please fix your app. Thank you for your time.
I have been waiting for this app. 5/5
Living here all my life. I trust Wink News.
