The old app was better 1/5
I was using the old app and saw that there was a new one, so I deleted the old and downloaded this new one and am probably going to switch back. The app doesn’t scroll smoothly, has a ton of old news prominently featured on the home page, and is not as customizable as they want to make it seem. I have tried to add favorite topics but it doesn’t change anything with what you see on the home page. I don’t like that I can’t scroll from story to story anymore either. You read one, then have to go back to the home page, look for the next headline, read that story, go back to the home page, etc. Sometimes I can’t even find all of the new stories from the day. There are headlines listed as local news but they are from other parts of the country, and you don’t realize that it isn’t a local story until halfway through the article. This is a horrible news app.
Landscape view on iPad Pro 5/5
Now that the landscape view is working this has become my go to app for local news. I really like this new app!
Thanks for landscape 5/5
Now it’s usable for iPad people who like landscape mode. Thanks for the update.
Audio won’t stop 1/5
A couple times I opened a news story , for instance today’s teaching infants to swim. I somehow had two females talking at the same time and could not get them to stop even after I pushed the home button on my iPad. Frustrating as hell.
No Live broadcasting 1/5
Update- June 12, 2019- this app still not performing with the advertised changes. Can you add the live and repeating daily broadcast feature back to the old format???
The live news broadcasting is no longer available on this app. The old format would play the live new broadcasts, take you into the 9 am morning show and then repeat the morning news. The live feature would play afternoon, evening and 11 pm news which allowed viewer to see everything all day. This app only shows portions of coverage.
I wish they would return it to the previous format so we could watch all of the broadcasting.
A big mistake 1/5

You ever tried making a new dish for dinner with great ingredients but it ends up tasting like garbage.....welcome to the new channel 11 news app.
If it ain’t broke don’t try to fix it 1/5
By Mel Mel 2424
This app is horrible by far. There is always someone who thinks they can do it better, but not here. The set up is horrible. Who ever is supposed to be an editor even lacks editing. So many grammar errors. Do you not have SPELL CHECK?
It’s a complete turn off having to deal with this MESS you all have thrown together. Just put it back the way it was. Looking at all these negative comments and you are still stuck on stupid.
Fire the person responsible
Won’t work on Apple iPad 1/5
No sound on iPhone 1/5
Watching videos whether it be full screen or not I cannot get any sound from the videos. And I know nothings wrong with my volume because I can listen to videos and other apps
Please delete old videos and news clips 3/5
I liked the old app better! There is much more that appears on the page, when you open the app, than necessary. I would like to just read the current news and not look at old videos or news that has been on the page for some time.
Old app layout was much better than this 1/5
I don’t want to have to dig through your app to find the news. The old app layout did this much better
Totally worthless App 1/5
By D. D. B.
I can’t get anything I want from this app. If WTOL were looking for a way to frustrate their viewers and drive them to their competitors, this app will surely help with that!
This new app is terrible, I prefer the old app very difficult to find what I’m looking for. Where’s the Gas Price Tracker
No live newscasts 1/5
About ready to delete the app. I only use it to watch live morning newscasts when I’m traveling. Before I could watch the live newscast or the newscast after the normal broadcast time. All I can find now are only video clips of content I don’t care about. Someone please tell me how to find the whole broadcast.
WTOL 11 News 3/5
I downloaded this new app,to check on my home town,it’s a nice app but I don’t get any sound. What’s up?
No Landscape Feature 1/5
Will be deleting the new app. It cannot be viewed in landscape which should be a basic feature of any new app.
NO LANDSCAPE VIEW 3/5
Only one App on my iPad lacks a landscape view, this one. I’m deleting the app until the issue is corrected. Convenience is equally important to content, for users.
No to new 1/5
Don’t t like it
No Good 2/5
Cannot view in landscape on a IPad, there was nothing wrong with the old app, give us a choice , guess I stay with Channel 13’s app.
Very happy 5/5
App is well rounded and has a lot of useful features for the end user. Great job
Doesn’t rotate!!! 1/5

When I go to download the list of high old pressure pills that cause cancer...it shuts off every time...good grief how am I to tell if I am killing myself.
So Far Not Liking it 2/5
Trying to view the new app on an iPad is a struggle. You can’t view it in landscape so if you have a keyboard your stuck flipping everything over on it’s side. Hopefully they fix that.
