Decent app - biased news 2/5
By skeet shoes
The app was great in terms of quality and flow (aside from the ‘back button’). Unfortunately the developers decided to work with a well-disguised biased news outlet. Unfortunately I have to delete the app and discontinue trust in channel 11. What a shame.
Crashes all the time 1/5
Crashes every time i open app and read an article. Happens all the time. Please fix asap or I’m going to a different local news app. Update getting rid of your app. Crashes ALL THE TIME
Don’t waste your time. 2/5
Big fan of ch 11, but the app isn’t worth your time. Don’t bother till they fix it.
Too many notifications 1/5
You guys send way too many, not at all important notifications. Most things aren’t breaking news, but you wouldn’t know by reading your notifications. I don’t need a push notification letting me know your AM news is on early due to snow (and 1-3” at that!), or what story is next at 5. If I wanted to watch tv, I wouldn’t need your app. I’ll get my news somewhere else.
Live Tv 1/5
All commercials, garbage app
Breaking News? 1/5
By dump trumpp
I allowed breaking news notifications, However I get notifications about thins like.. “Free Avocados, take part in weight loss study” Sorry this is NOT breaking news.. they always send notifications 5 minutes before their newscast starts, and it’s usually not breaking news.. just self promotion garbage
What happened to the recorded live NEWS? 3/5
I used to love the ability to stream the news when it was convenient to my schedule. Even with the weird crashes and the fact that I’d have to start the app twice every time I watch on my kindle fire tv, I didn’t really care as long as I could get the news when I needed the news. Now if I don’t watch during a live news hour, all I get is streaming high school football information. I will be switching to one of the other network news apps for the greater Pittsburgh area. Was fun while it lasted.
Was my favorite news app after the recent update I find the app useless and deleting it
Update for iPhone X
Writing and print 2/5
By Mickey Mouse71
There is always a news story that I want to read and when you open it up, the print is super small. You can’t make it bigger and it is to small to read.
There are also a lot of grammar errors In the news articles or missing or extra words.
Won't stay open without upgrading. Phone won't let me upgrade
We have to PAY for new update to get news???!!!! 1/5
OUTRAGOUS!!!! With the new update you now have to PAY to get your news.
**But yet it's free on TV?! This is ridiculous.
I'll stick to my **Channel 4 WTAE** news app.
****It's better anyways.
Won’t open 1/5
Will not stay opened
It crashes in iOS 11.
They keep you updated! 5/5
If you don't like a lot of notifications, I wouldn't turn your notifications on. However, they always update their news and weather 24/7, and they keep you up to date. Overall, it's a nice app.
By Mary UTF8
app will not open. crashes within seconds.
Terrible App 1/5
By Pitt Mick
I'm deleting this app. Continuous ads are possible without EVER seeing a news story! I wanted to see "Live" but they ran 3 consecutive ads. How's that possible?! If you enjoy watching ads, this your app. If you want to see news get another app.
A ad pops up as soon as you open this app and you have to wait for the ad to run its course, no way to exited out of the advertising. It's very ignoring. I won't be using this app anymore..
Almost like watching the news 3/5
It seems like this app gives you ALL the news ALL the time. I easily got 20 alerts daily. I just wanted breaking news (the Liberty Bridge is on fire) not every random news story (house fire a county away). The excessive alerts became too annoying & I deleted the app after 2 weeks.
IS THIS A FREAKING JOKE? 1/5
The stories still will not scroll. I am on an iPhone 6s Plus. If I try to scroll down on the story I would like to read, it will not scroll, the side menu to the left opens up and I cannot go back to the page. You have to choose something on the side menu. This has been going on for probably close to a year. Every once in a while I'll download the app, or come back and check it out after an update... it's literally become a joke! Because it's a joke. And it doesn't seem to want to work for the other person's iPhone 6s Plus that's living in this house. I mean it's not the worst thing in the world that this phone app doesn't work. Because the first 5/10 articles are about who shot who or died in a house fire. At least it reminds me why I don't want to live in Pittsburgh and try very hard not to shop there anymore. It's just become a joke.
Wpxi is my preferred local news. But this app is terrible. I still use it anyway, but it really needs a fresh look. It has a few annoying issues that cause me to close it all the time.
KDKA can't compare to 11 5/5
KDKA is awkward , because they don't seem to know what they are going to say , but channel 11 gets to the point, Butler is a place of news , sure , but I never heard KDKA tell me about the things where I live! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ to channel 11! 😆
Best Local News 5/5
I have used many different local news apps and I am a Virginia user. Great live stream and way to stay up to date with my favourite city
Please fix 1/5
By Rusty Mopar
Used to be a good app. Now it rarely loads and I can't scroll through the stories.
Won't open 1/5
App won't open anymore. Deleted it and reinstalled it but no luck. Just sits there on logo. Disappointed.
The app is an absolute train wreck. Can't scroll through any articles, videos don't play, overall usability is horrible
No good 1/5
Same news that you see 10 times every morning and commercials. No thanks
Media is awful, formatting rough 3/5
Good for news but media rarely displays correctly. Links fail to work. "Play" signs over images.
Automatic video play 4/5
I like this app a lot to get local news BUT please stop the automatic video play when you click on a notification. The alert doesn't even open the correct story. Clicked on alert to read about local arrests and got a sportscast video about the Pens.
Nothing pops up 2/5
I did the most recent update and nothing comes up when I open the app. Please fix it
Too many notifications 2/5
Just want to know about weather and school closings.
Can't get any news to show up today and as far as school closings haven't even found them to look at
Live News No Sound 1/5
Ads ads and more ads that's all this app is!!! When trying to watch the live feed there is no sound. I've tried on my iPhone and iPad and neither work. Deleted app.
Good when works 2/5
I used to use this app a lot and never have any problems now every time I go to use it it seems like there's something wrong with it and I have to delete it and reload it
Crashes in seconds 1/5
It worked before, now it just crashes and shuts down. Needs help.
Obnoxious blinking ad 1/5
The blinking "message" icon that leads to an ad is the most obnoxious thing I've seen on my phone. I'm deleting the app...
Too much advertising ...slows everything 1/5
Similar to the wpxi website all the ads take so much too load that the functionality suffers. I can't get the app to load to play the live news ir see anything but the majority of the ads. Frustrating
Used to be 1/5
Used to be good after update notifications don't work
Keeps closing when opened 1/5
I cannot get news from it anymore. Tap to open and it just closes as soon as it opens. Used to be an okay app.
App won't open this morning 1/5
It loads and crashes immediately.
Craaaaaaap still. 1/5
By Steven p knowledge
Another update and the ads have gotten worse. And when I opened it up today it crashed immediately. I tried another 4 times with the same result. Deleting now.
Don't waste your time downloading 1/5
The new update added so many ads that it's impossible to navigate the news stories without being constantly routed to some advertisers web page. I JIST WANT TO READ THE NEWS! Also, it seems that to fit all the ads on the page some of the news titles overlap on the home page. So I can't even read the headlines!
Do not download!
No local news, all cheep advertising, no news. You should be ashamed to try and call this a news app. I said good day!!!!
Where is the local news? No updates? 1/5
By A in RVA
Have given this app a few weeks for a review but it is horrible. Information is slow to anything to update. If I wanted news that is a couple of days old I would buy a newspaper. The stories that are posted are like reading TMZ it's all hype... Where is the true local TV news??? And where's weather?
App looks great! 5/5
It did not work at first. But now it's great
Much improved. 5/5
Newest version works better, much better than its local competitors. Much brighter and easier to navigate. Still wonder why the news apps did away with user comments on stories. That gave a lot of insight for the mindset of those around us. Wish they would re-institute that capability.
Love the notifications 5/5
This is a great app! Get fast notifications when something new is happening.
Timing is off 3/5
Was watching the news 11 in the morn, also while searching for delays for my children's district, and had no results found; However, then, the delay appeared on news 11, I was confused about the timing it took to update the new delay!?!
(Just Needs a little more time adjusting)
