    You have to find the news in this app. It totally needs a makeover asap. Worst news app on my phone. Please please fix it fast.

  2. Wanda Murry-avatar

    Can't get the station to come in.... The station is always buffering.... I have not been able to see one news program..... I have not been able to see one show.... I enjoy WOOD TV8 but I cannot get it on my computer or tablet or phone with that being said I'm going to delete the app

  3. Scott Sweeney-avatar

    Best app to get on your phone because it tells you the weather

    recently started seeing "sponsored content" every 3rd or 4th article. used to absolutely love the app and didn't mind the ads at the bottom of every story. now with all the "sponsored content" this app just seems like a money grab. it's not news. it's companies paying for ad space. if it was news, every 3rd or 4th "story" wouldn't be about the same exact thing with a different picture. get rid of them for a five star review from me.

    This app needs to date all of the articals. Its super annoying if im not sure that its recent. Id like it if there were a separate app for just school closings, seeing as my smart phone is smart enough to tell me weather and breaking news, but it's too dumb to give me school closures. Yeah I'm talking to you samsung >:( (And I know I said my phone sends news alerts, but it's nice to be able to select the exact article I'm reading. However, I just Google it. That particular suggestion is for my fellow news app users)

    Not liking the new map for weather radar. Can't see what's coming across the lake, only what's currently over land. Also too much clutter with all the roads and county boundaries.

  10. Sharon Hyzer-avatar

    So far I love this app. Very easy to use and informative with news and weather.

  11. Michael Rich-avatar

    loads slow way way too many ads. can't believe someone at channel 8 has not come out with a simple and easy-to-use app. This thing is loaded with so many ads I thought I was at an advertising conventions.

  12. Terry Kooienga-avatar

    I use this app to get my daily news. Many instances of not opening the news articles or the app stops working. I have to close the app and reopen.

  13. Kevin Wethy-avatar

    This app constantly locks up and shuts down on two different tablets and my phone. Also, there are too many ads.

  14. A Google user-avatar

    Fix the damn app. This app has gone from bad to worse. Extremely slow to load. Multiple restarts while trying to read article.

  15. Sandra Torres-avatar

    I really love this app. Theres time when I dnt have time to watch tv I can see it on my phone. Very very convenien.

  16. Jim Nam-avatar

    used to be a great app before all the ads. Now you can't open anything without getting bombarded with advertising.

    I love the weather and traffic alerts. It gives me a chance to stay up on current breaking news when I am away from our tv at home.

  18. Ronald Stewart-avatar

    The information is not updated as often as it should so the information is sometimes outdated.

    In at least half the news articles, the ads at the bottom of the page cover part of the article. So i can't read the last part of the story. VERY FRUSTRATING!!

  72. Chris G-avatar

    Really? Now the ads makes noise! So annoying. This app has been a litany of failures!

  73. Amy Hopkins-avatar

    App doesn't open 98% of time. Other 2% it opens but articles never load. Very sad....

    Too many stupid ads! Not a single article lists a time stamp or an author! C'mon 8, this is journalism 101!

  83. Todd VanHorn-avatar

    What good is a news app when you can't read the news because you can't get beyond the ads

  84. Jim Schaak-avatar

    Really appreciate the professionalism of the writing and reporting. I always know what's going on at home no matter where I am.

  85. Mateo Schutte-avatar

    Awesome!

  86. A Google user-avatar

    It's good for breaking news, but it has a lot of bugs when it comes to linking to external content. Instructions to "swipe" or "click here" for school closings never work. There are occasional notifications for traffic incidents but tapping on the notification fails to provide any additional details.

    App defaults to portrait mode, I can't use the words I'd like to in a review that tells you how much I hate that.

  88. A Google user-avatar

    Had to download and use this app so that I could continue to enjoy what is arguably the most popular feature, Bills Blog. Instead of reading it a browser window lime I've done for years, I have to use this thing and suffer the assault of unwanted full page adds and click bait. Re-enable the browser function on this site, or find someone else to give you clicks.

  89. A Google user-avatar

    Absolutely love news 8 been watching it for as long as I can remember job well done wonderful app
