You need help to improve 3/5
Please review channel 9 Charolette NC mobile app and see how close you can get to being as good, They never black out their always on and it runs smoother and better than iuff4 does . In fact some times I start watching local news on my phone and get frustrated and switch over to it So much better and professional always on just like watching live tv,
Love Wyff news four they are all great and they keep me up on everything including the weather keep up the good work
By shamefully grateful!
This app continuously stops and it rarely gives me the entire news cast with out my having to stop and restart it again.
Please fewer ads 2/5
Read this app almost every day - but wish there weren’t so many ads. Seldom watch a video to avoid the commercial every time. Would be a 5 star without so much commercial noise : )
My source of local and regional news! 5/5
By Carolina Musician
I refer to the WYFF4 app about six times a day. They update frequently and keep me in all the loops I want to be on. Also, my main source for local weather.
Too many ads 3/5
I like the app but I hate having to listen to ads every time I click on a news story.
Not working anymore??? 1/5
I use this daily and for the last 3 weeks nothing but a black screen. Is this working for anyone else???!
The truth 1/5
You leave arrivals on your way too long. One would think that after a few months it’s really not news. It certainly is not anything new.
I’m sick and tired of all the attorney ads with “Rug and Home” sandwiched in.
No more 4’s!!!! I’m watching Fox!!!!!
Good app for Local News! 4/5
I think this is a really good app for WYFF4 News. The slightly lower rating is because there are click bait articles/ads at the end of each story and I would rather not have those on the app. I would be willing to see more ads for local businesses or follow ups from past stories.
Needs work 1/5
By Big redd59
Difficult to navigate. Same stories stay on site for days with no update. Will probably delete this app.
Maybe you could make the print a little bigger! It's just horrendous on my iPad & I have an iPad Pro. At least if it could be expanded, it would be doable but it can't be.
Glitchy and irrelevant 2/5
The news stories that come through as notifications are nearly 100% about obscure stories involving death. When a relevant news story comes through, clicking the notification banner rarely actually gets you to the actual story. I have the app, but the best part about it is that you don’t have to let the app load fully to erase the notification that attaches itself to the icon.
Great news content but WAY too many ads
Channel 4 news is the best, 4/5
By Magilla the Gorilla
I really care about what is happening, the news I get from channel is factual, the only drawback for me is some of the reporters seem to talk too slow and deliberate, just be normal and talk normal. Continue giving us the truth in the news! Thank You
By upstate native
Your reporting is good .
That said , please update your stories more often ,especially on the weekends .
It is so repetitive
reading the same news for days .
This is the primary reason for the low rating .
What happened to Allison Powell?
By Isaac's poem
I am having an issue with ads that pop up in the middle of a story or weather forecast and override what I was reading. Sometimes they happen repeatedly and will not stop. I have to leave the app to find what I need.
When there were tornado warnings I tried to access the forecast and still had to wait through ads! Not ok!!
Great app 5/5
By Twone R
Love it the new and information daily!
Love the app 4/5
I love the app! If there was one thing I would change it would be pictures that are posted the articles cannot be tapped and made larger. When things like looking for a suspect it would be nice to get a closer look. Again, love the app it makes me feel connected to what is happening around our town.
Ads before tornado warning broadcast! 1/5
I get the need to ads in an app.
However; tonight I was so disappointed by the disregard of safety.
The tornado warning was issued for Greenville county. I got the notification which stated there was a live broadcast, so I go to it to try to get more information. An ad starts before the broadcast.. ok.. fine. So I scroll down to read about the alert while the ad is still playing, it comes to an end so I scroll up, and a new one comes up, this happened 3 times before I got fed up and just decided to try to watch/read elsewhere.
This would have been fine, if it weren’t about a tornado warning!
Love having on the spot news and weather reports.

When you love staying updated with what’s going on, even when traveling, this app is for you!
Local News 3/5
By Sue in SC
I enjoy being able to access local news quickly, but the quantity of ads and quality of writing (spelling and grammatical errors) leaves much to be desired.
Love the news from WYFF !! Only one !!! 5/5
This is the only news I watch 4:30 am till 7:00 am then 12:00 to 12:30 and then all the days news at 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm !!! I moved here in 2000 and the only channel news I watch here’s to you wyff !!
This app is my go-to news feed. WYFF is good at updating the news and removing the old. One thing really bothers me though. They print out a headline and tell you absolutely nothing in the story. So why even bother????
Too many loud blaring ads when all we want is the news 1/5
Too many Ads. If I open a story, I don’t necessarily want to watch a video, just read the story. Same ad pops up over and over between each story. As such I rarely use the app and when I do I remember to turn down the volume OFF as not to wake the dead.
Infrequent updates and too many out side feed stories from other out of state news.
First thing I notice is irritating 1/5
The Sherrif has posted a picture of a fugitive in my area! The picture is smaller than my little fingernail and I can’t expand it. What good is it to post a picture that nobody can see?
Scrolling screen make eyes hurt 1/5
As I scroll up from the main page the stories coming from below explode open and it’s so annoying on the eyes I have to quit the app.
WYFF News 5/5
By Digging Roots
I like the fact that WYFF News gives instant news all during the day so we can stay informed.
Too many ads 3/5
This app has too many ads, but good loca stories.
Optimized already for the new iPad Pro 2018 5/5
Developers already optimized the app to work with the new 2018 iPad Pros. Thank you so much and GO TIGERS!!🐯🐾🐾
I like WYFF app because I can check the local news wherever I am. It covers most of the news stories I want to read about. I do wish they would fix it it so after reading a couple articles, it doesn’t go back to the top. I should be able to go to the next article.
Too many long ads 3/5
Commonly you can “skip the ad” in apps but this forces you to watch the entire (usually local) ad and then often repeats the same video ad for subsequent stories. Not any more. Done.
Not fake news! 5/5
This is not fake news!
By Aging Out
Your news is fine but why bother with videos if they cut off a fourth of the way in. The ads don't have the same problems.
Spell check? Grammar check? 3/5
Surprised that there area so many poorly written articles, with incorrect spelling and terrible sentence structure. Advise checking carefully for professionally written articles.
I can’t stand the way the ads start as soon as an article is opened regardless of what the volume may be on the phone.
Murder, abuse and wrecks on I-85 3/5
I have been asked by my colleagues to quit reading the WYFF News while on trips. We have advised our clients that if they plan to visit South Carolina do NOT read the news on your app. From what is listed daily it appears our area is a death trap. It is hard to believe we live in such a colorful, dynamic and charming region of the state when reading the news. Very little positive news is included.
I wish we could control the alerts more. I don’t really want to know everyone there’s a traffic fatality.
Weather map 5/5
Is it possible to add a compass for directions please? I am directional Illerate
and when weather team says south of 85 , 385 etc I have no idea where to look to see if my area is included or excluded. Thank you all for all you do!!
Automatic videos 3/5
I hate the videos that automatically come blasting on when I just want to read it.
Too many commercials on the app 4/5
The app is info on the go...... I spend half of my available time with a commercial between each story.
Defective news site 1/5
By True detec fan
This site has posting titled for an article, only to open the article and there is no mention of the info suggested. The IT team need to read and preview the articles and videos postings. Updates are not being don.
Only news I read 4/5
Breaking news 4/5
I find it irritating when I get a notification about a breaking news story and do not see the story in the app. Please have the story available when sending notifications of new stories! Thank you!
Fiddle 4 4/5
By Fiddle 4
Great app! I am enjoying it get the news instantly!
I LOVE THE APP! Get the weather and news immediately as it happens!!!!
Font to small to read 2/5
I have grown from preschool to Social Security with Channel 4. I enjoy this app, but as my eyes age I find I cannot see to read the fine print the app uses. You cannot enlarge it with two fingers and you cannot choose a larger font. For this reason only, I am having to go to different news sources. This saddens me. I cannot believe I am the only one that has this issue.
I would love to give you a 5 but right now when I desperately need to see your broadcast I get a blue screen with a 4 on it. This happens far too often
