Alerts Galore 1/5
Way too bothersome. Sends news alerts all day long.
I’m always getting the good updates on WLWT 5/5
By SuperMom, kinda
I’ve used it forever and I love it!!! Keep up the great work!!!!
Best news app around. I can always
Count on WLWT for up to date news:weather.
Mixed opinions 1/5
They do a good job keeping up with the latest news stories, but after that most of the news listed is between 2-4 weeks old. Three weeks later, I don’t care who won the Kentucky Derby.
By Guy in Newport
Sometimes breaking news is not really “breaking “ as it has already been broken by another station. I really dislike the idea that they have of leaving the main part of an announcement off so you have to open the article. Annoying and makes me use my Fox19 App in order to see the headline without even having to open it. Sometimes I know by the headline if I even want to read the article. Weekend updates of weather are not always punctual in the early morning hours. I do like the news anchors and the weather team though, which is why I still use the app.
Bad news in between 3/5
By BA! ten10
There is poor and false news weaved between reports from other sponsors. I find this very frustrating. And I like when the weather was a separate app. It had more information.
Same stories 2/5
By Mad Head Fan
2 stars for stitch stories because news usually is always negative and stitch makes my day! One star for it’s hard to find new updated current news stories! So frustrating! I feel northern Ky is always left out unless something dramatic happens then it’s still not reported. I’m almost tired of hearing the word cincinnati.
I feel the whole site needs revamped. It needs to be easy navigation, inviting, and have a new news section. One for current and one for following up. If you want to keep old news please make sure you follow up on these. I am always left wondering what ever happened then I’ll find it on channel 19 news in cincinnati. Please fix the app and I will improve my rating!
Needs help 2/5
The WLWT app needs a lot of help.
It’s not kept up to date. I really don’t need news that is several days past
Get rid of some of the ads or have a button to skip the ones that a person does not need.
I am sick of the dryer wizard
Weather is the best 4/5
I only gave 4 stars overall because the coverage is just ok.....but the weather forecasters do a great job.
Radar is 8 minutes old! 4/5
After having been hit by the tornado in 1999, I am always keeping track of storms when they come through. But with the radar the images are always 8 minutes behind! A lot can happen in that short period of time! Why isn’t it more current? I do find that the forecast is more accurate than those by other statistics, and I like the meteorologists!
The anchors have fun together and are great together.
Like the app but too many commercials.also not as much content as your competitors. I always go to you app first though.
Excellent Weather App 5/5
I’m from California and my family is still there. A few weeks ago, there was a tornado warning in their area and WLWT app notified me of the alert 25 min before they were notified locally. I called to warn them and they thought I was crazy, but in the end, they were thankful. Thank you WLWT!!
No improvement 1/5
By apparently many disappointed
Poor local coverage at best. If you like reading about news that happened months ago, this app is your ticket. Lots of stale stories that have been posted for months, no or very little follow up of headlines. Just a very poor example of a “news” site. The only thing I use this app for is the weather radar as that’s the only thing current. If you want half way decent coverage of local news, download the channel 19 news app. 19 seems to do a better job of getting local news while channel 5 covers next to none, but you will always read about something happening in a city not even remotely close to Cincinnati that has no connection to our area. Guess they’re just too busy searching for worthless news stories on the internet. They don’t have reporters, just copy and pasters.
App seems to drop randomly 1/5
By charles the fisherman
App drops allot
Too many ads. 4/5
Wish it was possible to pay for a no ads version. Would enjoy this app 100% more without them.
Well done. 4/5
Gives us the news we need, in a timely manner.
Love it but..... 4/5
I love my WLWT news app. Very easy to use and informative. The only thing that kept me from giving 5 stars is that sometimes we get “alerts” for silly things. I think alerts should be kept for important info we need to know quickly.
Typical news station 3/5
This is just your typical normal run-of-the-mill news station. With half accurate weather predictions and biased news coverage.
Great app 4/5
Sometimes alerts aren’t really that urgent to interrupt our day. I do love the weather forecast the best in the area.
Too much video 3/5
By Pa Rick1
Those of us who have slow internet have to wait too long for the stories to load because of the video. Take a look at WCPO’s website that separates the video from the print. Otherwise you have informative and accurate coverage.
I hate this app 2/5
I hate how old news remains on the feed. I also hate that after scrolling down and then clicking on a news topic that after I’m done and click back to the home page how it refreshes and I’m forced back to the top of the home page.
Needs some work 3/5
The app has stop times frequently. Often I have to shut it down and restart.
Lacks updating 2/5
Repeatedly reporting old news.
Breaking news 4/5
By Daves baby girl
I like to stay informed of what is going on when news breaks. News 5 delivers.
Great App 4/5
I use this app a lot, it’s a great app, it has always worked for me 24/7.
Declining functionality / performance 1/5
By I hate nickname crap
The APP literally flipped two stories back and forth with no input from myself. It would be great if we were subjected to only one commercial in the APP instead of bombarding us with the same for every story.
Too many ads between newsfeed 3/5
Stop putting ads between news articles
I give up because every article is loaded with ads
Not breaking news 3/5
When I receive a breaking news alert, the link is never on the app at that exact moment. I have to wait at least 5-10 minutes after I receive the notification for it to appear on the app.
I do like the app and it is very handy to get caught up if you miss the news broadcast. My only frustration is, I am always getting notification, but if you don't follow that link at that time you miss it.
Could be better 3/5
My complaint is their alerts. If you hear the alert but can’t click on it, it goes away very quickly and no where to be found on the app.
Kind of defeats the purpose of a news or weather alert.
Messed up! 3/5
I watch your app in the morning while I’m getting ready for work and lately it has been freezing a lot, as well as repeating what was just said. It also plays the sound for one commercial while showing the video of a different one!! I hope you can get it straightened out quickly!
MSN Echochanber 1/5
It’s ok to check out traffic but it’s the typical biased propaganda from their parent company. I know they don’t have a choice but I’m sure this review will find its way to the trash bin since it’s not to their viewpoint
Way overboard on alerts 2/5
By Justin reds
I got this app to get local breaking news alerts. I constantly get notifications about things that are not breaking news such as local 95 yr old dancing for Bengals win. Cute, but not really BREAKING NEWS worthy. Tone down on the unnecessary alerts.
It really irks me that most of the time I cannot simply go to an article on my iPad and read it rather than have a video open up automatically play the video
Does not keep the news fresh 1/5
This app has different sections such as Local News, National News, etc. In each of these sections they only run 5-6 news stories. Then they will keep the same story posted for a couple of days. You mean to tell me there aren’t 5-6 new news stories out there each day. This has been like this for years. With their recent app update to the graphics, it only makes things run slower. I’ve had enough. I’m deleting the app.
Breaking news is great 3/5
The app seems to update breaking news often along with weather updates. A lot of the news is just old and stays on for days
Poorly put together 1/5
Hard to navigate, only shows what they consider to be the TOP story for the day. Everything else is a day or two old. No tab for local news. Just really poorly put together and executed.
👍🏼 keeps me informed 5/5
By B's Apple iTunes
I watch WLWT morning news because they are on top of all stories and I love the newscast. The app is a great extension of the broadcast with videos, stories, and push alerts. I especially like the push alerts for serious traffic incidents and breaking local or national news - keeps me informed at a glance!
Separate weather app 4/5
The weather was a lot better when it had its on app
It is very repetitive and doesn’t update to newer news sometimes for days. They keep some stories and advertisement disguised as articles on for weeks.
Works pretty well but not 5 Star 4/5
I like this app but it is way too busy! We need latest news weather and sports. Not all the news you can fit on the page! I found my best news app is not from Cincinnati !
Look for ease of use and not covering it all.
Random ads started popping up 4/5
Didn’t have any problems til this past week when random ads started popping up multiple times and won’t even let me read an article.
Overrun with ads 1/5
By How hard can this be to fix?
I deleted it this morning after having it for years. It is overrun with ads and commercials. The ads have become more prevalent and interrupt anything you’re reading.Very frustrating and absolutely ridiculous. Stick to Channel 19 where there’s none of that.
Automatic ads are annoying 2/5
The ads that automatically play when I’m navigating the app. I understand WLWT wants ad revenue, but it’s frustrating to have to close an ad every 5 seconds when scrolling through the 7 local stories that are produced each day.
I always read the news but after updating the app I could not even read or flip through the news stories without the Meijer ad playing continuously. I hope it gets fixed soon!
Auto play ads-no thanks 1/5
Deleted as soon as they started their loud auto play ads.
The advertising on the app is a joke, I’d like to buy a app without commercials
