Riduculous ads 1/5
Have had this app for several years but finally deleted it tonight- I have a news app because I want to see news, not your endless stream of self-aggrandizing commercials.
Ron Wheatley 1/5
Your app stinks to high heaven now! You give a so-called teaser alert on my phone and then you have to go through all kinds of commercials to eventually get to the story! Change all that or I for one will delete the app!!
By stitchin gramma
I like getting news in short form!
And you weather predictions are usually right on!
Streaming is awful 1/5
By Sportster girls
Every time I stream leave the app freezes up do a better job WSOC-TV!
Same stories 1/5
Change it up more often, same stories , needs to be fresher!!!!
Correct news presented 5/5
By sargent of the guard
Accurate news presented
Worst in Charlotte 1/5
Worst sight in Charlotte for news, how about giving details in your stories. Your weather app is even worst
Upfront and Personal 5/5
The best accurate and reliable news and weather over all other stations.
Do not care to see info related to the Panthers team. The team who has not come out in support of the people who support them through this virus event. Not one mask, not one meal.
Biased Towards Democrats 1/5
WSOC-TV, along with the Charlotte Observer, are very biased towards Democrats rather than being impartial. Also, some of the News Articles remain on this site for days or weeks without being replaced by something new. Please stop sensationalizing weather events as they’re invariably made more of than they are actually. Causes people to fear, panic and rush grocery stores. Do not like the layout. It’s not appealing. I don’t use Twitter; so, I don’t want to read news from Twitter.
Always dependable 5/5
By Kwebo Global
The WSOC app is always right there with up to date information regarding the Charlotte and surrounding areas. Plus, the 7 day weather forecasts are always spot on.
Where’s the news 1/5
By QN Bingo
It’s clear by now the news is a left wing scare tactic for the Democrats. Where’s the real news on what’s happening in the city and where are the leaders?
Avid channel 9 watcher. 1/5
This app is horrible. Clunky & over advertised on y’all. I live in Charlotte & watch WSOC’s news broadcast regularly but I had to delete this app.
We use the app for up to date news
Back button 2/5
When you hit back , it goes all the way back to the top. Every update gets worse!
You need to update Channel 9 investigates daily ad well as sports
If there is not to add to previously posted info. Don’t post anything!!!
News is not updated regularly.
I love viewing the local news broadcast when I can get to it. It has helped that the news is repeated somewhat throughout the day. I’m waiting for it to be available “on demand” - meaning it’s available any time when my schedule allows 30-60 minutes for me to catch up on the current events.
First to know 5/5
This App. Is awesome...very informative and up to date.
The ads are awful. 2/5
I’ve been reporting the same ad since I downloaded this app. I don’t want to see someone pulling earwax out of their ears with a tweezer! I just want the news. Also one of the other repetitive ads has an interactive piece on it so I can’t even scroll past it to read the rest of the story. It’s very frustrating. I also wish there was a way to customize what kinds of stories you see on the home page. I’m tired of having to scroll past sports and the 704 page just to find the actual local news. I used to have this app on a previous phone. Deleted it because it was not user friendly. Decided to give it another chance now, but I think I’m just going to find my local news somewhere else.
Opens with an ad 1/5
By Dawn Kebahlz
Unfortunately this last update makes the app open with an ad that my ad filter blocks, so the app doesn’t open for me on my home network. I’m not going to use data to use it ... so I have to go elsewhere for local news. Fix it please!
Excessive Ads 1/5
Screens are cluttered with ads on the news and weather apps. Time for me to find alternative apps!
App is the worst ever 1/5
I’ve emailed them about the app not working and someone contacted me back and said they would forward my email. At first I thought it was my TV but when I tried it on a different TV/brand I realized it was the app because it did the same thing. I emailed them over and over and over again and no one would respond. They don’t care about the app not working. They just need to get rid of the app all together it is horrible!!!
App is crashing 1/5
App is crashing
Live news feature is a trap 1/5
The live news feature is a sham and just tricks you into watching ads
Fear mongers 1/5
90% of the notifications are about murder and kidnapping . Why do I need notifications sent every 5 minutes about that crap. Just negativity to try and make you fear the enemy and they are making the black community that enemy.
Not working 1/5
Any part of the app I try to view a foodlion ad keeps popping up so I cant check the news!
Intrusive Pop-up 1/5
By annoyed at popup
Really annoying pop-up keeps repeating making it nearly impossible to read any article.
Ads are ridiculous 1/5
By Tar Heel 311
Over the years this app has gotten worse and worse. Every video starts with an ad, which for many news stories is in very poor taste. Now they have ads that pop up every few seconds on their articles so one cannot even really read them. I finally just deleted the app and will get local news elsewhere.
Incessant Ads and sloppy work 1/5
You would think with all the annoying, incessant, never ending ads that you would have enough cash to hire competent IT staff to fix the sloppiness of embedded videos that don’t load. Ugh!
They are still figuring things out :-( 2/5
This app needs work. When there’s embedded video that doesn’t load and just continues to spin, it should be fixed. Hire better IT guys. This has been going on for years.
Will not work!!! 1/5
Freezes on the ad. I’m done! DELETE!
Notifications are ridiculous! 2/5
I was getting far too many notifications daily so I changed it to only breaking news and the weather but that didn’t help. For months I kept receiving all notifications. I just changed it to ONLY WEATHER notifications today and as soon as I changed it I received a breaking news notification in less than 5 minutes after updating so the notification customization doesn’t work. I can’t take it anymore so I turned off all notifications. The app barely works when you click on the notification to see the story anyway and there’s far too many advertisements.
LIBERAL LGBT,TRUMP HATING FAKE NEWS 1/5
Doesn’t cover news fairly. Always bias to democratic views.No one wants LGBT banners across their news apps. Always reminding us of stories that should have been buried long ago.
Bad app fix 1/5
By Angry Tax Payer
Unorganized and hard to find anything I’m gonna go Download WCNC’s app
Closed Captioning during live newscasts 1/5
Can't get rid of closed captioning during live newscasts.
Top National news is 18 months old!!! 1/5
Well, if I've been having a nightmare since Nov and it's still only Feb 2016, that would be a good thing. But (dammit) this feels pretty real, so you only get 1 star.
So where's all the news from the past 18 months? Did the Russians hack your server and delete all those stories? Is the beginning of the censorship of the press? Or could it be the more obvious and likely scenario: your app Regressed with some major Bug.
I sure hope you address it quickly, 'cause I'm dying to see who else met with the Russians. And didn't. Or might have. (Not really. I actually just want to know what's going on that could impact my life is all. )
Bad links 2/5
I have this app set so that I receive notifications and news alerts. Over 50% of the time when I click on an alert I get a completely unrelated news article. Very disappointing.
It keeps crashing 2/5
By Giancarlo Sequeira
Hi I am really disappointed. Every time I open the app it closes or crashes please fix and contact me thank you.
Really frustrating alerts 2/5
I'm deleting the app because it's always sending interesting alerts that never link to the story or video and going to the app you cannot find the link to the story. Unnecessarily frustrating experience. Goodbye WSOC-TV app.
All this app does now is crash.
Needs work 1/5
The app has potential. However, too many bugs, video doesn't play, and app crashes
Just plain awful 1/5
By KDB/Charlotte NC
Freeze up when you're trying to watch the news, at first I thought one mishap would be ok but then it continued to happen, if they got the kinks out that would prevent so many freeze ups & crashes it could really be great, I've deleted it a few times because of this & tried reinstalling it, after a few days it does it again, I'll try another news station perhaps 👎🏾👎🏾😒
Pretty annoying to use 1/5
Just scrolling through the news causes the app to pull up a menu and hides the news behind it. The only way to get back to what you were reading is to click home and find the article again. Not worth the effort to use with better news sources available.
There are some problems with this app, but the most glaring one is when I click on a notification for a news story, video pops up about something totally unrelated.
Usually okay, now buggy, useless 1/5
By Easy Death Sky
Appears to open and load just fine. Articles open but won't scroll. Scrolling activates side menu. Gotta fix it.
Worse app I have used in long time 1/5
By Southern Potts
Man, where to start. This app, which claims to offer local and national news, offers mostly advertising, with an occasional news story thrown in. When you actually get a story notification, which is infrequently, most of the time if you click on it it takes you to a video commercial, not the story you expected. I suppose if you grit your teeth and stay with it long enough you eventually get the story, but I have not done so, just close the app instead and go elsewhere for news. This is a terrible app, don't waste your time!😁
Thin line between news and spam 3/5
Not to be mistaken, the app serves its purpose. But the notifications are turning into pure spam! Every time I check my phone there's a new notification of zero importance to me. I get the whole "breaking here first" thing, but some of the notifications should be sought out instead of forced.
