Detroit The app not working. " has stop working for unknown reasons to retry later. I just downloaded the app and can't get in! I'm thinking about taking it off my phone!
Its OK.. Gets me the news on my phone but I am constantly amazed by the typos and grammar..it's like they have 4 year olds typing the stories. EVERY article has issues. Its not that hard..
My Go To News App! As far as Weather & Breaking News, Channel 7 is hands down #1 in my opinion! I asked that 3 simple issues be fixed, and I'd give 5 stars, these issues were addressed. Thank you! ☆★☆★☆
Watch live news offapp I install this thinking that maybe it'll give me the convenient option of watching live news without all the hassle of a web browser, but no. You are still directed to the website outside the app to just watch the live news. Inconvenient. Uninstalled.
Latest update needs an professional exterminator V4.1.122 has trashed android streaming, the bugs you squashed were under your desk.
Too many adds Over all an ok app. I am tired of all the adds that popup. For this reason I would give it 0 stars if it was an option.
What happened I used to love this app to read about the new and even be able to watch the story's you would like to now I sat the over five minutes wit a black screen and a loading sign in the middle it won't load anymore. what happened it was working fine
New favorite app for weather school closings and real time news I like it.
Really! This app is getting worse and worse! Does it ever get updated?! Pointless app! Thought channel 7 was better then this! What happened?!
Push notifications Where are the stories from push notifications? I click and bring to the site without that story. Getting really tired of this app.
The app doesn't work anymore. ...
OK but.. The text of the push notifications is too big, you can't read the whole message, and when you do click on it to see what it's all about, it is no where to be found on the site when the app opens! please fix it's very frustrating ?
The reporter keeps posting the wrong date Yesterday they posted a nation sleep day story and said it was Friday March 14th. Yesterday was the 13th. Today a story on better made anniversary saying they turn 85 on Saturday March 15th. Today's the 14th..
App worked fine until last update. Screen is blank.
Awesome It really helps me find out if my school is closed or not and we have been closed the whole week so far so thxs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I looked the old way more.. it never loaded the hourly weather. Its annoying. I guess I just have to watch it.
Set weather for particular area.. Nothing in setting to select an area (zip code) to see what the temperature/weather is. Channels 2 and 4, as well as, yahoo and google give the option but not channel 7. Can you rectify this?
Ads Please remove the full page ads! Due to ads I will remove this app.
What happened?!?!?!?!? Since the recent update i can't open the app it closes every time i try to open it was better before.
The new layout is terrible. You should be able to select how many vertical column's.
Too many ads and old news Too many pop ups, and old news stories. If you want news about Detroit on the weekend, forget about it. Nothing is updated.
News videos do not play Whenever you want to watch a video the only video that plays is the commercial over and over and over again.
videos not playing starting any video with this app gives a black screen FOREVER.. totally unacceptable on a Note 4 with a strong Wi-Fi connection
Monroe App wasn't working for uninstalled it than reinstalled works great
Channel 7 app Detroit The news app great as well as the weather fantastic great reports can't beat it.
Great! Works well! Just right!
News alerts dont work after i up dated . Alerts dont work so i dont bother looking at app any more. I also just downloaded wdiv live weather app for free unlike yours for 5 bucks. Oh and i am receieving news alerts from wdiv. You came up a little short on this 7. Thanks but no thanks
Useful app I like this app and use it a lot since I am unable to watch the news all the time but since the update the ads are ridiculous! Every two or three stories they pop up! So annoying!
Refresh all Its an ok app. But the different areas will not update. I learned on TMZ that an actor died. Yet the most current news is emem and his ex may get back together. Wow old news.
Stopped Working After Update I get your notices but clicking them or manually trying to start up the app results in "WXYZ has stopped working" message. No longer useable. Unloading.
Love it Keeps me updated wit all the lastest news and breaking stories via my notifications window. I'm always informed before any of the other channels get the news. Love me some channel 7!!♡♡
Update the weather Often I will check the weather in the morning, and it isn't updated. For instance, it is 10:15 am and and it still shows yesterday's weather. Also, who edits this... many spelling /grammar mistakes?! Otherwise I would rate it higher than this.
Not liking the ad pop ups. Shows me the info I'm looking for. But the ad pop ups. Really? The station doesn't earn enough to make an app with out ad pop ups.
Total Waste still doesnt work Videos don't work . Videos still do not work. Uninstalled a waste of space. Only station I watch very disappointed this has not been fixed for the Samsung Note 4
Videos still do not work. I have Samsung Galaxy 4. Lot of times the weather also is not updated.
My zip code and location is wrong and I can't change it. So I'm not getting the weather in my area I like the old app better
Would like to include my location This needs some design updates. Can't add locations for updates in your area.
Waited 10 minutes... widgets never loaded App itself looks great inside. Love the layout of the weather pages. Crisp, fast, everything in a compact layout. However, I can't change weather view to another location. I can't even specify mine! And the widgets (& inside radar view) never did load. I need weather for other US cities and ALL other apps I've used do that (including Fox 2). The widget (& app) is rather useless for weather if I can't see my suburb or check on my family across the Metro area (or elsewhere in US). Meantime... uninstall.
It's getting there... So, I finally figured out how to check for school closings. Bout time. BUT... the video player still crashes the app, two out of every three times I try to watch a report. Fix that. Please!
You flood the app with a add between every article , so I am deleting your app.
Great way to check out my old stomping grounds.
Very good App. But needs a quicker way to get to older articles and video.
Cant tell ads from news stories
This app is garbage
Video crashes When clicking the link to watch streaming of the news the app crashes and shuts down. Every time.
It apps stinks For one thing schooling does not open ,2) no sports at all , 3) you hit the video and the commercial come on then nothing I like the old app before it was up dated. I had to give you one star if I could I would take it away this app use to be good. Now it stinks you give alerts but they don't work and the stores are way behind never up to date thinking of dropping this app
Very unhappy with the app. Every time try to find school closing it says click here for full list . There's never a list even when I know there is school closing . Don't like the new set-up at all. Worst app ever still can't see school closing with the worst weather this year upon us please fix .
So, I recently reinstalled, trying again, thinking that consumer comments meant something. Guess not. What I want to know is... So, I was watching Good Morning America and started reading a story (tape) at bottom and missed part of tape (don't have time to wait for it to come around again.) Thought I'd check out the story on this app. You don't keep updated. You're wast- ing money with person running app and losing consumers. Start listening to your consumers' com-ments. Uninstalling, AGAIN!
Go back to the drawing board The school closing info is horrific. Complete waste of time. The endless ads in between stories, the commercials before EVERY video. Makes me want to uninstall it immediately. I liked the old app because I could actually get the news instead of playing musical buttons. Hopefully someone finds a smarter way to design the app.
useless I loved the old version I downloaded a year or more ago. This updated version. It's almost useless. Half the things don't load. I turn of all notifications except weather and it still bombards my phone with all of the other stuff. And the school closings I can't ever see!! That is my whole reason for downloading the app and I can click on a million buttons and it won't ever tell me the schools that are closed. So very disappointed.
Push notifications suck Every time I receive a push notification and I click on it to read the story, it is never there. Takes me to unrelated page every time. Never the story I am trying to read. Either fix it or stop sending them
Poor App Very poor app. Can I get school closing, sports or any other listings from this app. Would not recommend to anyone.
Apple version is 100 X's better Where's the sports section like Apple version? A breaking news Alert gets pushed to my phone, I click on it and the story isn't there.
Flash, no substance School closing lists don't load. Live and prerecorded video only play audio. FWIW, all of the other Detroit tv news apps are worse.
Weather Sucks put it back the way you had it it was perfect
School Closings List of school Closings won't open in my Galaxy S5. Also, when I receive notifications and I touch the notification to read the story, not only am I not taken directly to the story, I can't even find it in the Top News list.
Okay I'm tired of getting notifications and not being taken to the story.
Unhappy Liked the old version better. Can't get school closings to load. Depended on this app to know about school closings. Never works
Doesn't work with android
Repeats info, to many videos and no sports up dates
Can no longer read the articles! What food is this? Two thumbs down.
Just keeps getting worse Can't even bring up school closing list. Uninstalling.
I'm deleting it Too many ads
Hardly anything works. Weather, school closings etc. Needs a lot of fixes please
The stories are in HTML. When you read a story, the body of the story is in HTML. Didn't start out that way but now it seems all the stories are. This is on top of all the other criticisms you can read about in the reviews. Used to be a decent app before upgrade. I am unistalling now.
Text The text is too small
Unreliable The school closing list never shows. Most of the menus and links are inoperable.
Very difficult to get school closing lists. Much better in previous versions.
It sucks compared to the way it was
7 news What happened to the lettering ? Can hardly read the news with the computer "codes" mixed into the script...words too small.
Horrible Please bring old app back I'll check back in 6 months deleting this sorry crap.
Look under live video in the menu. Works great, the stream is under live video section.
It's Improving The recent updates have caused a few problems, but it is now working better again. I would have given it up five star but it still is not recognizing my login. I can pull up the information through what is sent on my phone though.
Don't like ads. Wish was advertisement free. Hard to use when only see half page.
Too many ads. Hard to sit through the ads. Will uninstall!
Dependable Enjoy the updates and alerts when serious weather arrives.
Not completely useless I get notifications of things and it either doesn't take me to the pertinent topic or it does but I can't retrace my steps because the article is nowhere to be found on the top page. Very frustrating. Learn from CNN. Theirs works properly. Or better yet BBC.
The Weather Your weather here never matches your t.v. broadcast
Great weather app
Awesome news app
Reporting needs a Spell checker. Functionality greatly improved. Need to update more often. Yesterday's news is just that, reason for 4 stars.
Ads make it take too long to load The new version hangs up upon loading because of the adds. I loved the last version. There are other options out there.
Can't play live stream This app used to work on my Toshiba tablet and it just stopped working....??? Very frustrating !!!!
Itty Bitty Live Video Basically ok, but the live streaming video is a tiny window that you can't expand to Fullscreen.
Push notifications was drunk this am Make sure you set your notifications right after you download. I got interrupted sleep for about 7 hours (between 430 am and 11am), notifying me about the same streets being closed, then open again, then closed. This was the most annoying experience ever! OMG don't let someone's child go missing...they might have to isolate you at work cause you will be irritable as hell without proper rest!
Not the best but ok. Notifications don't always go to the story.
No stories Too many times I get a news alert, go to the app and there is no story to be found.
Need to upgrade Videos never work went you click on them
It's stinks You send a push with part of the headline, then I click on it and you haven't loaded the story yet
Battery Hog Doesn't allow phone to sleep which quickly drains the battery.
Not completely useless I get notifications of things and it either doesn't take me to the pertinent topic or it does but I can't retrace my steps because the article is nowhere to be found on the top page. Very frustrating. Learn from CNN? Theirs works properly. Or better yet BBC. Version running on 7/11/2016 suffers from stuttering video.
Bad streaming on adds This App Always stop 8 seconds into add stream for Internet provider. Then I have to wait while it buffers the ad to continue. And it is the same ad on every news/weather videos that I choose to view. At least have an opt out after 5 seconds like your competitors. All videos play fine except the ad. So I know it is the way you have the ad streaming set up. Iwill uninstall your App for this reason!
Could be better Like the app. It's my main source of news but: Notifications pop up on my phone. I click on it, and no story. Very aggravating!
Weather news updates way too slow!! Today is the 15th of June. The "read the forecast" section was last updated on the 13th of June. Used to think these guys were the leaders on the Detroit area.
Don't work... This app sucks on tablets does not play video can't even watch News live
It's getting there... Thank you for listening to the people who use your app. It is truly getting there. I've given you one more star.
My dad has it This app is awesome bc on the pc they have radar so I use the radar
7 news app Sucks! Too many interruptions.
Bad app Weather radar doesn't work
Why am I not getting updates and the weather anymore. All my settings are on. Tried to create an account but it won't let me.
Local news?? The local news is more than a month old... May 17th .... today is June 26th! Going to uninstall...
It just doesn't not work
Good and informant
Love it! Thank you for listening to the people who use your app, and explaining or adjusting the ease of use. I grew up watching WXYZ Channel 7, that's the only news we watched in our home, and is the only channel we get our news from, as and adult. So, I couldn't imagine having a different news app on my phone. Thank you for all the hard work you do bringing us the latest breaking stories, and keeping us up-to-date on world news and weather.
The news team@wxyz I watch these guys everyday and I get the news that informs me on the events that is going on around me. The team is personable, they make it seem like you are part of the team..... great app!
App is OK, but content needs spell checking The amount of typos is insane. Article titles and content contain many typos that could easily be caught by a quick proof reading.
Channel 7 I don't like the Games that pop up with the News feed , it doesn't work well with the application the screen is BLANK . News pops up I tap it to read about the story , and its either Blank or it goes to the main page , been having trouble with the live Video
TRANSPARENCY IS WHAT YOU ASK OF EVERYONE..IF YOU SEE SOMETHING THEN SAY SOMETHING. I'VE LOOKED THROUGH THE ENTIRE APP, AND THIS IS THE ONLY WAY I SEE TO CONTACT YOU GUYS IS THROUGH RATING THE APP. WELL I SEE SOMETHING AND THERE IS NO TRANSPARENCY WHEN IT COMES TO WXYZ. WITH THE EDITORS, AND EDUCATED INDIVIDUALS WORKING FOR YOU, I KNOW SOMEONE BESIDES MY ASSOCIATES AND MYSELF SEE THE BIASED NEWS REPORTS THAT YOU RUN ON A DAILY BASIS. I WILL BE SPEAKING TO YOU FOR A HOST OF PEOPLE WHO AT THIS TIME IS WATCHING
Reporting needs a Spell checker. Need to update more often. Yesterday's news is just that, reason for 1 star. Headlines remain unchanged for days and longer.
Biased media again Would you like to hear reporting not favoritism, good for traffic and weather
No search function. You can't search for stories you can only scroll through the headlines looking for a story.
Not always current News is sometimes dated.
Fix the date for the weather its not February its only October
Best news app keep up the good work God bless.
Easiest to Navigate Easy to find local news.
This is a great app! Well informed
Looking good Great coverage thanks
Loved it Loved it
Itty Bitty Live Video Live video is a tiny window, no full screen. Replay videos freeze and you have to sit through a commercial before EACH ONE.
WXYZ app It was advertised as "your" weather app. I'm getting binged with all kinds of reports that do not affect me and it is quite annoying. I'll find another way to get breaking weather.
Crashes on Android 7.0 Nougat I have a nexus 6p has crashed since the update
Constant crashes when network switching. Crashes when moving from wifi to cellular. Even if app is backgrounded.
All the local news, not so much opinion
Great app Awsome for news and weather
