Still Terrible 1/5
By Slow low & wobbly
Finally found out how to prevent this app from dropping 4-6 times during each 6PM news show. I stopped using the app and stream from the wtnh.com website. Can watch the entire show on Apple TV without any dropping.
Its worse 1/5
Very hard to get a video of the forecast
The dire “Doom and gloom” forecasts are becoming tiresome ... stop please
Swing and a miss 1/5
I had to rate according to how quickly it becomes frustrating after opening the app. I get several notifications per day of breaking news stories, and that’s really the most helpful feature of the app. However, when you try to open one of the notifications to read more, the article isn’t there. It just brings you to some video stream that is slow to buffer, and is not talking about the news story it just notified you of. Looking forward to an update that makes the end user experience more enjoyable. If you folks there at 8 paid some company top dollar to create this for you, you were ripped off. If designing this app was your kid’s project in computer class, then it was a great start, kudos to the little ones because its was better than I could make, but it still needs more tweaking to be professional.
Please make this better!! 1/5
I keep this installed because I read the push notifications or whatever fits on the preview of an article. "Click to open app" does that and only that, opens the app where there is no full story. The first couple of times I did this I tried finding the story but either it wasn't there or I realized I'm expected to watch some live feed. Really very irritating and can obviously be better. If someone is inputting some breaking news story, part of which is available as a preview, than the full story must reside somewhere. Why not on the landing page when you open the app? Look at the CNN app for inspiration.
Good news and I’m notified of things going on around me
I like ch8 news, BUT, I wish you would stop interrupting reg programs to put in something that isn’t important. Especially, when you have regular news coming up in less than 1 hour. The last two times you did that, the other 2 major networks did not interrupt their programs. Please take a hint. Thanks
Just thankful for having News 8! 5/5

Waste of Time!! 1/5
Worst local news app ever!
Pop ups distracting 2/5
Good improvements but needs a little more 4/5
I’ve use this app on and off for quite some time and I’ve seen the improvements over the different versions, which is great. I like the fact that I can see the live forecast & the CT news coverage. I could be exercising, on the go and still receive the news... I love it. One of the improvements I wish you could make is a better way to get to that daily live news coverage. The main menu says live breaking news which is really for special events/breaking news but I have to click around to get to the daily live news coverage, which wasn’t always the case in older versions. Another request I would suggest is the availability to use the app on Apple TV. Other than that thank you for the app!
Good morning with you guys 5/5
By grandchildren 😘😘😘

Enough is enough 1/5
I have stopped watching Channel 8.....miss Gil and Darren. Cannot watch the weather with Joe. Kevin being tossed to the curb was bad enough and then on top of it...Fred....time for a change.....get your act together.

News 8 5/5
By Maiyl B
Love the news articles but ad’s pop up too much. I don't have weather notifications on but I get constant notifications even if it only MIGHT rain. I only want news notifications!!!
Very informative 5/5
Great group of commentators
By Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar
I’m a CT ex-pat in WA. It’s great to see the station I grew up with and keep in touch with home. Ch. 8 is only three years older and I watched the day it changed from Ch. 6 to 8. Also remember Happy the Clown, Capt. C. Whiskers and Admiral Jack. And of course, Mis-ter Goober.

Not the best
By Cant even send a review!!!
Too many pop up ads. Traffic cameras not updated and take too long to load.
It’s slow and you click on a story and lose it then can’t find it again I hate this app
By Doris Jean Graham
Good job for keeping us informed.
You’d think WTNH would have a good app like some of the other ABC newscasts. Unfortunately that is far from the truth.
1) Alerts pop up for breaking news then the app doesn’t show the article at all.
2) Other articles show on app, when you click on it to load, it takes you to a video screen saying “they’ll be right back” and never plays. No written article, can’t read NOR watch it.
3) Under each written articles, there are phrases from other news, but that’s all to it, you can’t click on it, you can’t see anything other than just that phrase.
Not to count the pop ups. App deleted, gave it a shot, totally not worth it.
High Marks 5/5
Really like this app. Keeps my current on news in my state and more aware of importance of local issues
By nice guy 4
To much on the weather reports. Slacken off !!
By Adduced diffuse
Seldom covers what is hot in New Haven. It’s good if you want to know about the tree that fell in Barkhamstead or the traffic light malfunctioning in Bozrah but for local news it can do much better.
No live news streaming 2/5
I downloaded the app so I could watch live streaming news but all I get are the same commercials over and over again. Id like to watch the news. Even Maine has news on-demand! MAINE! I end up watching Foxct 61 which is not the station I want to watch. I hope someone can help.
This keeps me up to date on all news Ct 5/5
Wonderful app. Love their news
I truly love the convenience of keep up on the news, back home in Connecticut. I sure miss not only the news team, but family and friends!
However moving to Washington state, is nice, but not the same; from the shopping to culture of food.
Yet very blessed with thankful for what is allowed to be given and the opportunity to stay in touch with Connecticut a far!
God Bless You All
App Keeps Crashing 1/5

Seriously Ads?! 1/5
By Lindsay (Not Lohan)
I have everything on my phone set to silent during the night since I’m frequently waking up with a baby and I don’t want to disturb her. However, when my little peanut woke up tonight I went to her room, sat in her rocking chair and fed her and rocked her until she went back to sleep. Then I decided to check the weather for tomorrow and BOOM the loudest ad in the history of ads comes on! And even after hitting the mute button it still played loudly! Thanks for waking up my baby again! Jerks...
App crashes 1/5
Just downloaded the update hoping they corrected the crash issue. Nope used the new app for 30 seconds and it just closed.
They love their advertising constantly popping up
Going to delete this. If you are thinking of downloading this don’t waste your phone space
Make it better! 1/5

What a news app shouldn't be 1/5
By Former app user
This what a news app shouldn't be, if you can get pass the constant barrage of ads,chances are the app won't load the right story. The app is hard to navigate and basically useless... but if ya want ads, it's great!
Worse then watching them live 1/5
The app is worse then watching them live. No news just adds and commercials.
Too many alerts and ads are too intrusive 2/5
The ads are disruptive. The app gets glitchy because of the ads. Huge wast of time.
