Can’t see the news for the commercials
by XXLMike on 2020/02/21 17:48
Too many commercials to navigate through to get to the story.
Weather
by drewrapping on 2020/01/21 21:02
Forecast all runs together with no break between days unlike the old app
Channel3000
by SnowQueen❄️ on 2020/01/05 18:04
Recent changes have made the app less user-friendly, with fewer updates for both local and national news.
Not a good update!
by Bav2337 on 2020/01/04 15:41
Next time test your app before you release it.
Lots of freezing, crashing
by Msz1221 on 2019/12/21 01:28
Not a good app. Freezes constantly or will crash randomly.
App freezes up
by oh noooo not again on 2019/12/05 18:05
It keeps freezing up & now it turned black when I clicked on a story
Terrible options for alerts.
by 85ATC on 2019/11/10 23:29
News coverage is nice, but there is no option for types of alerts. I like and want the breaking news alerts, but the daily or sometimes multiple times a day alerts for some random news story they have on their over the air broadcast is ridiculous.
Mostly ok
by joyous4114 on 2019/10/21 08:19
The only complaint I have about it is when I’m scrolling down, it scrolls back up. Please fix it. Otherwise it’s ok.

Cut and paste

Just a cut and paste news site. No original thought or effort put in

Full of useless info. Not user friendly
News feed is annoying!
by sarah8079123 on 2019/09/28 21:28
App resets to top story when you scroll through the news stories. Halfway through you get bumped back up to the top of the feed instead of staying where you were. Super annoying, please fix!!!
Channel 3000.
by Lockjaw13 on 2019/09/27 20:50
We are fortunate to have a channel with great news coverage!
Annoying
by Pancoal77 on 2019/09/05 11:00
I downloaded to get breaking news. Instead you constantly get alerts for nothing. Not breaking news just anything and everything non important.
Updates needed
by Jhwisc on 2019/08/16 00:47
Good but needs more frequent updates.
Channel 3000, Superb!
by Fyre Walker on 2019/07/28 18:37
As a businessman, artist, and outdoors sports person, Channel 3000 News and Weather apps keep me up-to-date on important civic news, and weather tracking, keeping me safe, and informed! Thanks Channel 3000
Wisconsin News to keep me informed.
by wi/ca lover on 2019/07/24 16:16
I’m a Wisconsin person who is now living in California,but, will return to live . It’s just so nice to be able to feel like I’m there.. Thank you for keeping me informed on the state that I love .
I miss the old format...
by Pegring on 2019/05/23 11:38
The biggest reason I had to up date,,is TDS scam ad couldn’t get rid of it...It’s a scam,cause they want your social security number...
Awful
by usurp Indi tsk on 2019/04/08 22:11
App closes out after reading every article. Useless.

Just Another Madison news channel
by Unhappy Taxpayer on 2019/01/18 22:17
The reporting done by all 3 in this town is garbage. All liberal mindless crap. Liberals are all good, Republicans are all bad. It gets tiring. Thanks for making my decision to cancel TV really easy.
Horrible for reading the news.
by Greg Lusk on 2018/10/29 22:56
Whenever you are in a list of stories and scroll down a bit the app refreshes and sends you to the top again. This is maddening! Clicking on notifications crashes the app as often as it brings you to what you clicked on. Usability needs a lot of work.
Pop up when app opens annoying
by vbbbxhdisnursi zmidd on 2018/10/28 10:04
Get rid of the pop up when you open the app. It is annoying and I will delete if not removed soon.
Well, it was better...
by duchapeau on 2018/10/12 23:14
...but not anymore. It takes forever again, because they make you stare at an advertisement a looooong time before they finally let you see the article you selected. Seriously, this holding the viewer hostage this long makes me not want to use the app. At least it doesn’t crash as often as it used to, but you lose a star for all the time of mine that you waste.
Only worth it for school closures or headlines
by T®izT®iz on 2018/09/19 23:49
This app is rubbish! I get a news update on my feed, school canceled or major news updates; however, when I tap on it, the article does not load, I am almost always left looking at a blank screen. The pop ups are garish and annoying. The “view live” requires flash and a Facebook account. This is the iOS AppStore; we don’t have flash with iOS!! Furthermore, with all the scandals surrounding FB, many of us have deleted our FB accounts. I ONLY keep the app for major, headlining events and school closures, due to weather.
Gary
by HaffPt on 2018/07/30 03:17
I miss Gary, why isn’t he on the weather any more?? Come back Gary!!
It’s gotten better
by honestreview2001 on 2018/06/13 18:19
The app is ok. It’s better than it was and I can get some of the info I’m looking for relatively easily, but still a little cumbersome finding things. My biggest problem with the app is the ADS. For an informational app, I have never seen so much advertisement. A lot of the advertisements are for the station - hello, I’m already using your app, do you really need to advertise your station and your app while I’m using it? As I said, it’s an OK app.
Nice App, very annoying pop up’s
by Dksksjcjekdk on 2018/05/20 13:13
Every time the app opens the morning show pop up ad takes over the entire screen. It very annoying. Otherwise the stories are quick to view and it’s an above average app
Worst news app
by iuythyu on 2018/05/16 02:08
I certainly don’t want to have to click at least 3 times to get to a story plus having to swipe away the opening picture. Poor design, poor execution!
Not Enuff Local News!
by Pulitzer Judge on 2018/05/08 02:04
Go ahead and rewrite Journal-Sentinel and AP statewide wire so we get better local and Wisco news! Your site is much better than Madison's morning paper's.
Great news source.
by Faily Reader on 2018/05/07 10:52
I read Channel 3000 throughout the day. My only complaints are that the obituaries aren’t all available. I have to go to Channel 27 to get a complete listing.
I HATE THE SPLASH AD
by NickJackMaxMom on 2018/03/25 01:43
Really- every single time I open the app- I tell myself I won’t watch the people you are advertising. Lay off the splash ads!
Writing
by Whip chick on 2018/02/15 12:53
The amount of typos and misspellings in their online articles makes you wonder either why they're not proofreading or who's doing the writing!
Love the news 3 team!
by Jwf6012 on 2018/01/04 11:57
I watch Channel 3 every morning, and night. The staff on the air are so personable, authentic, and caring. Each of of the cast looks like they could be our neighbors and friends. The news is current, relevant and expressed with the interests of the public as if it effects us personally. I applaud the behind the scene staff for supporting the various functions of the news shows and plan to watch Channel 3000 news,weather and sports forever!
Channel 3000 App
by ptkgn on 2017/12/19 00:22
Appears to be working well it’s my go to local news 😊💗
What a change!
by Paladin3271 on 2017/12/02 05:49
Wow, this is what an upgrade should do. I rated the app at 1 star earlier because it was virtually unusable. Crashed everytime I tried it. I saw there was an update today and when I used it, the problems seemed to be fixed. Now, it seems to be a very well laid out and pleasing source of news, etc.
Yay! (Update to Crash! Crash! Crash!)
by FritzieFresh on 2017/12/01 14:54
It's working, and working well! Finally, this long frustrating app is actually very nice to use. I haven't had anymore crashes. The notifications are very timely and will go right to the story when opened. The main page is laid out nicely and it is very easy to get to the stories I select. Thank you!!!

Channel 3000
by Rnk2461 on 2017/11/15 22:17
I'm not sure I like the new format. So far it's confusing. I also don't know if the news is not being updated in a timely fashion or I just can't find the new stories. I love the addition of obits, but it seems like they are incomplete and not updated daily. Overall on the right. Just needs to be tweaked. Starting to crash a lot. The font is horrible, very hard to read. No way to change it.
Crash fest
by Newshound McGee on 2017/10/23 23:29
Dreadful to use. Less than 50% chance stories will actually load.
Good news... but crashes all the time
by Malcore1976 on 2017/10/07 22:33
Their programmers need to fix stability issues and constant crashing.
Crashes!
by Flaked model on 2017/09/23 13:46
Love the push notifications for news, but wish there were setting to choose which notifications I got... however, when you click on the notification to see the story, the app crashes... then I have to look elsewhere for the story because I can't find it in the app. Good for being the first one to deliver the headline, but bead for actually getting the story across
Doesn't work very well
by ChukJr on 2017/09/22 19:41
This app would be great IF it would actually load the articles and not only show the pictures... and if your lucky and you can read the article prepare to be kicked out! If I try to use this app 5 times in the day I'm lucky to get it to work 2 of those 5 attempts. 👎
Terrible Application
by 8262417395 on 2017/09/19 19:05
App always crashes when you open it from a notification. Attempted to open the app and watch a live video and the sound didn't work. Never have any luck with this app. Needs a TON of work. (iPhone 7 Plus) user.
Was good until
by Amtone on 2017/05/25 22:31
Was decent, really like the notifications but now the app crashes and when I click the notifications they disappear almost as if the site isn't updated yet please fix and will change review
App crashes after clicking on weather alert
by jverwolfpack on 2017/05/18 02:40
The app gives good notifications but when clicking on them it takes you to the app an precedes to crash... needs some work
Crashes
by M2441 on 2017/05/06 13:00
Every time I open the app from a notification the app just closes in 2 seconds. Even reinstalled app works the same. Ok if you don't use notifications.
Crashes!
by SwtBasile on 2017/04/20 17:34
When I click on the news story from the notification it comes up with some old news. If it does, and it's rare, opens up the current news story it crashes before I can read it.
Meh
by Zaza LaFou on 2017/04/17 14:15
I'm not impressed. When I click on the icon I get very old stories, the same old stories actually, and it's not clear how to get into current news. Shouldn't it be automatically updating? The lead story is about a body found in a barn, which I think is from quite a while ago. I've been looking for info on the missing local man and there's been nothing...I guess I'll stick with the paper.
Data Storage
by Fudge_brownie on 2017/03/14 00:37
The app stores very large amounts of data on your phone and there is no method to delete it. The app takes a slim 38 mb, the data takes a staggering 417 mb, nearly 12 times in size.
Ad-nauseum
by Ploink on 2017/02/26 22:44
This app is so riddled with all manner of banner and pop up ads that one has no hope of actually reading any news. Deleted.
Don't care for this update!
by K&MTR on 2017/02/07 14:30
The latest date is a little over the top! More maneuvering to find things. My biggest complaint & has been for sometime is that the national and world news, comes from CNN!! This station is a CBS affiliate, so why not get those news stories from CBS. If I want news from CNN then I will download their app.
Annoying update
by Malex321 on 2016/12/21 13:14
Used to love this app. Latest update allows video/audio ads to start playing automatically and you can't even find them to shut them off. News videos also play automatically without being "played" One of the things I used to like about this app is that I could read it in quiet environments. Now my only option is to close the app to stop the noise!
Love this App
by 41424341 on 2016/11/21 21:45
Great source for breaking headlines, accurate weather forecast and my Go-To for school delays and cancellations.

It's a great app in every way...I totally recommend it for everyone to get this app you will not be sorry, I mean it.
Great!
by Kels608 on 2016/06/12 18:05
Love this app!!! I don't watch the news but this app makes it possible for me to stay in touch with local and national news! Definitely recommend.
Better than CNN
by Gangwa on 2016/05/29 00:44
I use this app daily and really like it. It is easy to navigate and use
Constant ads pop up
by Muskie Matt on 2016/05/27 17:05
Update 5/25/16. Zero improvement- ads now open my browser even if I don't fat-finger accidentally. I finally deleted the app. Update 3/29/16. The ads are excruciating. Still no pay to get rid of ads option. You have to watch a commercial that's longer than the story to watch a video. I am amused by the typos in the stories, though. You can't even causally scroll through this app without the ads spontaneously opening- pretty frustrating. Update 11/8/15- this has gotten much worse. Video ads that are timed and difficult to stop, ads take over your screen when you get near them. If revenue is the goal, can you give me a paid app option and cut out the ads?
Best news App
by Ebz_girl on 2016/05/02 02:53
Love this app! I never been someone to watch the news but I'm always in the know because of this app. They cover local and national news and the updates are super fast. I don't even live in Madison anymore, and this continues to be my go-to app of what's going on in the world ( and the Madison area).
App review
by Tktwisted4 on 2016/04/26 12:01
Takes me right where I want, radar, current, and hourly weather. up to date news stories local and national. Pop ups are not fun.
Good content
by Jesus is perfect! on 2016/04/09 15:33
Could do better with navigation and appearance.
Good app, best news in town
by Darthab on 2016/04/02 15:54
The app is fine. Not buggy like other local news apps that won't be named. Channel 3 has probably the best news coverage of the three local stations.
It's okay
by RDell Johnson on 2016/03/30 22:15
For local news, not bad. Not great, content-wise, and the investigative journalism could use a shot in the arm, but it's here, and I'll use it until something better comes by. And there goes one more star for pestering me.
Too many ads
by Jamie jp on 2016/03/30 03:22
To many annoying pop up ads, especially while in the middle of reading a story.
Efn ads
by C2dlos on 2016/03/30 01:53
By far, the worst app I've ever seen. Lots of ads, doenst update often(old news), sometimes they have the same story several times as you scroll down. Amazing how the state of Wisconsin has such a terrible app. PLEASE invest in a - at the very least - a decent app
Most accurate weather forecast
by Suddenlysonia on 2016/03/28 16:49
Most accurate weather forecast by far. I love the fast notifications and up to the minute news too!
Loud audio of ad pop ups
by Guymadisonl on 2016/03/28 08:27
Is really annoying. If you check the news in the middle of the night expect to wake up your partner when a automatic audio ad starts while you're grasping for the off button!
Too many popup ads
by Slimer2012 on 2016/03/27 00:15
Get rid of the pop up ads! I start to read a story and then get blasted by pop up ads!!!!!! :(
Terrible
by IM_140.6 on 2016/03/21 23:49
STAY AWAY!!!!!!!! Pop ups and ads everywhere!!! Ads are out of control!!! Ads everywhere!!! It closes up the app and sends you to either safari or App Store. Ads = $ the higher the hits are the more money channel3000 gets. Not a great idea since it basically kicking you out of the app the moment it gets a "hit"
Channel 3000

App works fine just getting annoyed with all the ads on screen. Fine another way to get revenue other than bugging people!
Unresponsive
by The Ag Educator on 2016/01/31 12:48
Granted, I don't have the latest iPhone, but all updates are complete on my iPhone 5c and this app is slow and clunky. I don't mind the adds if the app was functional.

A shadow it's former self
by Beezner68 on 2016/01/23 03:23
I agree with what most others are saying, ads have murdered this app and site. Equally annoying is how I can't make it give me only one, instead of three messages, for each of the top news notifications. Used to be great...
Useful but adds are annoying
by kamelen on 2016/01/17 13:28
I use this app pretty regularly as resident of WI. The format is appropriate for looking at different articles pertaining to weather, sports, etc. As stated previously though, the ads can be overwhelming. The worst part is having to close out of the app just to close ad. Also, lately I have been receiving two banner notifications at once everyone they send out a headline. I've almost considered dumping the app just for that. Still, it keeps me informed locally without having use a web browser. It's useful enough.
Ridiculous amounts of advertising
by JoelAnacker on 2015/12/11 01:38
Terrible app. It constantly redirects you to webpages and the App Store without clicking on anything.

by silksbaby on 2015/11/27 18:06
Great App providing up to the minute coverage of news events as they happen in the south central Wisconsin area. App does crash frequently when using my smartphone, thus the reason I gave it a four (4) star rating.
Love it!!!

Great to have when your away from home.

by AsbestosPenguin on 2015/11/22 15:19
App will completely hijack your experience to deliver timed ads that you cannot dismiss. Pathetic. I'll use a different source for local news.

I've had this app for YEARS. It was my only local news app. But I will NOT TOLERATE ads being forced down my throat. Congratulations app development team! Your greed & stupidity has lost you another user.
Great
by Viewerfan2 on 2015/10/02 03:47
Enjoy the app. Great being able to catch-up on news that I miss. Don't mind pop-ups.
Helpful App
by Fishmac Who on 2015/09/30 12:30
For those that complain about the ads, they should be expected. How else do you pay for the app / service provided? Works as it's supposed to. Good app.
Wonderful
by Stoughtonite on 2015/09/28 18:10
I love being able, when away from home town and traveling to bring the local news, weather & sports up on my phone. Great app, ❤️ it!
Pop Up Ads are Obnoxious!
by Anne HW on 2015/09/28 12:29
Honestly, I don't mind a few ads. That's what happens when an app if free. HOWEVER, this has gotten a lot worse, actually taking me to an entirely different screen!!! Come on, you guys have seen the reviews. How about toning it down some?
Stop with the pop-ups!!!!!!
by D6045 on 2015/09/12 18:57
Deleting after I finish this review. The pop-ups are beyond ridiculous. If you're goal was to have people stop using the app and delete it-congrats! Have you not figured out that basically no one likes those stupid pop-up ads?
Pop up ads
by KneeDeepPond on 2015/09/09 01:22
Pop up ads are out of control, it just started about a month ago, if that. You can't exit out of them so you have to exit the whole app. By the time you get back to the article you were on another ad comes up, it makes this app literally unusable...
Used to be great..
by KT99088 on 2015/09/09 00:37
The ads and pop ups are a nightmare!
Stop the pop up ads
by DJRun30 on 2015/09/08 12:57
Apparently funding for the stories on this app were slim. Hence the ridiculous auto pop up ads. Find another way to make $$$ or expect a loss of users. Very annoying pop up ads.

Love the push notifications for news, but wish there were setting to choose which notifications I got... however, when you click on the notification to see the story, the app crashes... then I have to look elsewhere for the story because I can't find it in the app. Good for being the first one to deliver the headline, but bead for actually getting the story across

Doesn't work very well
by ChukJr on 2017/09/22 19:41
This app would be great IF it would actually load the articles and not only show the pictures... and if your lucky and you can read the article prepare to be kicked out! If I try to use this app 5 times in the day I'm lucky to get it to work 2 of those 5 attempts. 👎
Terrible options for alerts.
by 85ATC on 2019/11/10 23:29
News coverage is nice, but there is no option for types of alerts. I like and want the breaking news alerts, but the daily or sometimes multiple times a day alerts for some random news story they have on their over the air broadcast is ridiculous.
Horrible for reading the news.
by Greg Lusk on 2018/10/29 22:56
Whenever you are in a list of stories and scroll down a bit the app refreshes and sends you to the top again. This is maddening! Clicking on notifications crashes the app as often as it brings you to what you clicked on. Usability needs a lot of work.
Mostly ok
by joyous4114 on 2019/10/21 08:19
The only complaint I have about it is when I’m scrolling down, it scrolls back up. Please fix it. Otherwise it’s ok.
App crashes after clicking on weather alert

The app gives good notifications but when clicking on them it takes you to the app an precedes to crash... needs some work
Nice App, very annoying pop up’s
by Dksksjcjekdk on 2018/05/20 13:13
Every time the app opens the morning show pop up ad takes over the entire screen. It very annoying. Otherwise the stories are quick to view and it’s an above average app

by Catnurse6112 on 2014/10/29 12:23
This used to be a great local news app, but since the last few updates you are unable to access the news portions easily. You are immediately routed to ad after ad (I do expect some advertising to help make money on this free app), but the ad movies will just leave you looking at a blank screen and you have to constantly get out of the app and get back in to finish reading the news story. It has finally become unusable, which is really too bad because I used this app multiple times a day. Not worth it when the ads constantly get hung up and lead to black screen. There has to be some balance here between advertising and app usability and they haven't found it yet.

by duchapeau on 2018/10/12 23:14
...but not anymore. It takes forever again, because they make you stare at an advertisement a looooong time before they finally let you see the article you selected. Seriously, this holding the viewer hostage this long makes me not want to use the app. At least it doesn’t crash as often as it used to, but you lose a star for all the time of mine that you waste.
Only worth it for school closures or headlines
by T®izT®iz on 2018/09/19 23:49
This app is rubbish! I get a news update on my feed, school canceled or major news updates; however, when I tap on it, the article does not load, I am almost always left looking at a blank screen. The pop ups are garish and annoying. The “view live” requires flash and a Facebook account. This is the iOS AppStore; we don’t have flash with iOS!! Furthermore, with all the scandals surrounding FB, many of us have deleted our FB accounts. I ONLY keep the app for major, headlining events and school closures, due to weather.

by honestreview2001 on 2018/06/13 18:19
The app is ok. It’s better than it was and I can get some of the info I’m looking for relatively easily, but still a little cumbersome finding things. My biggest problem with the app is the ADS. For an informational app, I have never seen so much advertisement. A lot of the advertisements are for the station - hello, I’m already using your app, do you really need to advertise your station and your app while I’m using it? As I said, it’s an OK app.

I'm not sure I like the new format. So far it's confusing. I also don't know if the news is not being updated in a timely fashion or I just can't find the new stories. I love the addition of obits, but it seems like they are incomplete and not updated daily. Overall on the right. Just needs to be tweaked. Starting to crash a lot. The font is horrible, very hard to read. No way to change it.

I'm not impressed. When I click on the icon I get very old stories, the same old stories actually, and it's not clear how to get into current news. Shouldn't it be automatically updating? The lead story is about a body found in a barn, which I think is from quite a while ago. I've been looking for info on the missing local man and there's been nothing...I guess I'll stick with the paper.
Data Storage
by Fudge_brownie on 2017/03/14 00:37
The app stores very large amounts of data on your phone and there is no method to delete it. The app takes a slim 38 mb, the data takes a staggering 417 mb, nearly 12 times in size.

by K&MTR on 2017/02/07 14:30
The latest date is a little over the top! More maneuvering to find things. My biggest complaint & has been for sometime is that the national and world news, comes from CNN!! This station is a CBS affiliate, so why not get those news stories from CBS. If I want news from CNN then I will download their app.
Annoying update
by Malex321 on 2016/12/21 13:14
Used to love this app. Latest update allows video/audio ads to start playing automatically and you can't even find them to shut them off. News videos also play automatically without being "played" One of the things I used to like about this app is that I could read it in quiet environments. Now my only option is to close the app to stop the noise!

Constant ads pop up
by Muskie Matt on 2016/05/27 17:05
Update 5/25/16. Zero improvement- ads now open my browser even if I don't fat-finger accidentally. I finally deleted the app. Update 3/29/16. The ads are excruciating. Still no pay to get rid of ads option. You have to watch a commercial that's longer than the story to watch a video. I am amused by the typos in the stories, though. You can't even causally scroll through this app without the ads spontaneously opening- pretty frustrating. Update 11/8/15- this has gotten much worse. Video ads that are timed and difficult to stop, ads take over your screen when you get near them. If revenue is the goal, can you give me a paid app option and cut out the ads?
Best news App
by Ebz_girl on 2016/05/02 02:53
Love this app! I never been someone to watch the news but I'm always in the know because of this app. They cover local and national news and the updates are super fast. I don't even live in Madison anymore, and this continues to be my go-to app of what's going on in the world ( and the Madison area).

by Darthab on 2016/04/02 15:54
The app is fine. Not buggy like other local news apps that won't be named. Channel 3 has probably the best news coverage of the three local stations.
It's okay
by RDell Johnson on 2016/03/30 22:15
For local news, not bad. Not great, content-wise, and the investigative journalism could use a shot in the arm, but it's here, and I'll use it until something better comes by. And there goes one more star for pestering me.

By far, the worst app I've ever seen. Lots of ads, doenst update often(old news), sometimes they have the same story several times as you scroll down. Amazing how the state of Wisconsin has such a terrible app. PLEASE invest in a - at the very least - a decent app
Most accurate weather forecast
by Suddenlysonia on 2016/03/28 16:49
Most accurate weather forecast by far. I love the fast notifications and up to the minute news too!
Loud audio of ad pop ups
by Guymadisonl on 2016/03/28 08:27
Is really annoying. If you check the news in the middle of the night expect to wake up your partner when a automatic audio ad starts while you're grasping for the off button!
Too many popup ads
by Slimer2012 on 2016/03/27 00:15
Get rid of the pop up ads! I start to read a story and then get blasted by pop up ads!!!!!! :(
Terrible
by IM_140.6 on 2016/03/21 23:49
STAY AWAY!!!!!!!! Pop ups and ads everywhere!!! Ads are out of control!!! Ads everywhere!!! It closes up the app and sends you to either safari or App Store. Ads = $ the higher the hits are the more money channel3000 gets. Not a great idea since it basically kicking you out of the app the moment it gets a "hit"
Channel 3000
by Frank Frederickson on 2016/03/02 18:40
I like it especially the weather and up to date new
Hometown Connection

When I travel, I like to see what is happening at home.
Meh its ok
by Moshe mend her on 2016/02/02 20:56
App works fine just getting annoyed with all the ads on screen. Fine another way to get revenue other than bugging people!
Unresponsive
by The Ag Educator on 2016/01/31 12:48
Granted, I don't have the latest iPhone, but all updates are complete on my iPhone 5c and this app is slow and clunky. I don't mind the adds if the app was functional.

Love it. Instant alerts, get the news anywhere you're at. ❤️❤️❤️😎
Timely and clear
by Madves on 2016/01/24 18:10
I love the timeliness of the updates with clear and concise information.
A shadow it's former self
by Beezner68 on 2016/01/23 03:23
I agree with what most others are saying, ads have murdered this app and site. Equally annoying is how I can't make it give me only one, instead of three messages, for each of the top news notifications. Used to be great...
Useful but adds are annoying
by kamelen on 2016/01/17 13:28
I use this app pretty regularly as resident of WI. The format is appropriate for looking at different articles pertaining to weather, sports, etc. As stated previously though, the ads can be overwhelming. The worst part is having to close out of the app just to close ad. Also, lately I have been receiving two banner notifications at once everyone they send out a headline. I've almost considered dumping the app just for that. Still, it keeps me informed locally without having use a web browser. It's useful enough.
Ridiculous amounts of advertising
by JoelAnacker on 2015/12/11 01:38
Terrible app. It constantly redirects you to webpages and the App Store without clicking on anything.

Great App providing up to the minute coverage of news events as they happen in the south central Wisconsin area. App does crash frequently when using my smartphone, thus the reason I gave it a four (4) star rating.
Love it!!!
by Isla lieu on 2015/11/26 03:54
Great to have when your away from home.
Ad-fest
by AsbestosPenguin on 2015/11/22 15:19
App will completely hijack your experience to deliver timed ads that you cannot dismiss. Pathetic. I'll use a different source for local news.
Great app
by Niemisto Household on 2015/11/09 02:47
Easy to use. Nice to get local news away from home.
I love it
by sand girl @ MSTC on 2015/10/27 15:44
I wish it had weather closing alerts for my for my tech college MSTC.
Great app
by history08 on 2015/10/11 15:28
Content strong. App works well. School closing info most reliable. Good work.
Good job marketing team!!
by Shadowkind on 2015/10/03 22:21
I've had this app for YEARS. It was my only local news app. But I will NOT TOLERATE ads being forced down my throat. Congratulations app development team! Your greed & stupidity has lost you another user.
Great
by Viewerfan2 on 2015/10/02 03:47
Enjoy the app. Great being able to catch-up on news that I miss. Don't mind pop-ups.
Helpful App
by Fishmac Who on 2015/09/30 12:30
For those that complain about the ads, they should be expected. How else do you pay for the app / service provided? Works as it's supposed to. Good app.
Wonderful
by Stoughtonite on 2015/09/28 18:10
I love being able, when away from home town and traveling to bring the local news, weather & sports up on my phone. Great app, ❤️ it!
Pop Up Ads are Obnoxious!
by Anne HW on 2015/09/28 12:29
Honestly, I don't mind a few ads. That's what happens when an app if free. HOWEVER, this has gotten a lot worse, actually taking me to an entirely different screen!!! Come on, you guys have seen the reviews. How about toning it down some?
Stop with the pop-ups!!!!!!
by D6045 on 2015/09/12 18:57
Deleting after I finish this review. The pop-ups are beyond ridiculous. If you're goal was to have people stop using the app and delete it-congrats! Have you not figured out that basically no one likes those stupid pop-up ads?
Pop up ads
by KneeDeepPond on 2015/09/09 01:22
Pop up ads are out of control, it just started about a month ago, if that. You can't exit out of them so you have to exit the whole app. By the time you get back to the article you were on another ad comes up, it makes this app literally unusable...
Used to be great..
by KT99088 on 2015/09/09 00:37
The ads and pop ups are a nightmare!
Stop the pop up ads
by DJRun30 on 2015/09/08 12:57
Apparently funding for the stories on this app were slim. Hence the ridiculous auto pop up ads. Find another way to make $$$ or expect a loss of users. Very annoying pop up ads.

Ads are annoying. Makes me just close out of app and move on.
Channel 3000
by Rnk2461 on 2017/11/15 22:17
I'm not sure I like the new format. So far it's confusing. I also don't know if the news is not being updated in a timely fashion or I just can't find the new stories. I love the addition of obits, but it seems like they are incomplete and not updated daily. Overall on the right. Just needs to be tweaked. Starting to crash a lot. The font is horrible, very hard to read. No way to change it.
Love the news 3 team!
by Jwf6012 on 2018/01/04 11:57
I watch Channel 3 every morning, and night. The staff on the air are so personable, authentic, and caring. Each of of the cast looks like they could be our neighbors and friends. The news is current, relevant and expressed with the interests of the public as if it effects us personally. I applaud the behind the scene staff for supporting the various functions of the news shows and plan to watch Channel 3000 news,weather and sports forever!
What a change!
by Paladin3271 on 2017/12/02 05:49
Wow, this is what an upgrade should do. I rated the app at 1 star earlier because it was virtually unusable. Crashed everytime I tried it. I saw there was an update today and when I used it, the problems seemed to be fixed. Now, it seems to be a very well laid out and pleasing source of news, etc.
Yay! (Update to Crash! Crash! Crash!)
by FritzieFresh on 2017/12/01 14:54
It's working, and working well! Finally, this long frustrating app is actually very nice to use. I haven't had anymore crashes. The notifications are very timely and will go right to the story when opened. The main page is laid out nicely and it is very easy to get to the stories I select. Thank you!!!
Only worth it for school closures or headlines
by T®izT®iz on 2018/09/19 23:49
This app is rubbish! I get a news update on my feed, school canceled or major news updates; however, when I tap on it, the article does not load, I am almost always left looking at a blank screen. The pop ups are garish and annoying. The “view live” requires flash and a Facebook account. This is the iOS AppStore; we don’t have flash with iOS!! Furthermore, with all the scandals surrounding FB, many of us have deleted our FB accounts. I ONLY keep the app for major, headlining events and school closures, due to weather.
It’s gotten better
by honestreview2001 on 2018/06/13 18:19
The app is ok. It’s better than it was and I can get some of the info I’m looking for relatively easily, but still a little cumbersome finding things. My biggest problem with the app is the ADS. For an informational app, I have never seen so much advertisement. A lot of the advertisements are for the station - hello, I’m already using your app, do you really need to advertise your station and your app while I’m using it? As I said, it’s an OK app.
Great news source.
by Faily Reader on 2018/05/07 10:52
I read Channel 3000 throughout the day. My only complaints are that the obituaries aren’t all available. I have to go to Channel 27 to get a complete listing.
Well, it was better...
by duchapeau on 2018/10/12 23:14
...but not anymore. It takes forever again, because they make you stare at an advertisement a looooong time before they finally let you see the article you selected. Seriously, this holding the viewer hostage this long makes me not want to use the app. At least it doesn’t crash as often as it used to, but you lose a star for all the time of mine that you waste.
Crashes!
by Flaked model on 2017/09/23 13:46
Love the push notifications for news, but wish there were setting to choose which notifications I got... however, when you click on the notification to see the story, the app crashes... then I have to look elsewhere for the story because I can't find it in the app. Good for being the first one to deliver the headline, but bead for actually getting the story across
Wisconsin News to keep me informed.

As a businessman, artist, and outdoors sports person, Channel 3000 News and Weather apps keep me up-to-date on important civic news, and weather tracking, keeping me safe, and informed! Thanks Channel 3000
Doesn't work very well
by ChukJr on 2017/09/22 19:41
This app would be great IF it would actually load the articles and not only show the pictures... and if your lucky and you can read the article prepare to be kicked out! If I try to use this app 5 times in the day I'm lucky to get it to work 2 of those 5 attempts. 👎
Terrible options for alerts.
by 85ATC on 2019/11/10 23:29
News coverage is nice, but there is no option for types of alerts. I like and want the breaking news alerts, but the daily or sometimes multiple times a day alerts for some random news story they have on their over the air broadcast is ridiculous.
Horrible for reading the news.
by Greg Lusk on 2018/10/29 22:56
Whenever you are in a list of stories and scroll down a bit the app refreshes and sends you to the top again. This is maddening! Clicking on notifications crashes the app as often as it brings you to what you clicked on. Usability needs a lot of work.
Mostly ok
by joyous4114 on 2019/10/21 08:19
The only complaint I have about it is when I’m scrolling down, it scrolls back up. Please fix it. Otherwise it’s ok.
App crashes after clicking on weather alert
by jverwolfpack on 2017/05/18 02:40
The app gives good notifications but when clicking on them it takes you to the app an precedes to crash... needs some work
Nice App, very annoying pop up’s
by Dksksjcjekdk on 2018/05/20 13:13
Every time the app opens the morning show pop up ad takes over the entire screen. It very annoying. Otherwise the stories are quick to view and it’s an above average app

Annoying
by Pancoal77 on 2019/09/05 11:00
I downloaded to get breaking news. Instead you constantly get alerts for nothing. Not breaking news just anything and everything non important.
News feed is annoying!
by sarah8079123 on 2019/09/28 21:28
App resets to top story when you scroll through the news stories. Halfway through you get bumped back up to the top of the feed instead of staying where you were. Super annoying, please fix!!!
Was good until
by Amtone on 2017/05/25 22:31
Was decent, really like the notifications but now the app crashes and when I click the notifications they disappear almost as if the site isn't updated yet please fix and will change review
Writing
by Whip chick on 2018/02/15 12:53
The amount of typos and misspellings in their online articles makes you wonder either why they're not proofreading or who's doing the writing!
Crashes!
by SwtBasile on 2017/04/20 17:34
When I click on the news story from the notification it comes up with some old news. If it does, and it's rare, opens up the current news story it crashes before I can read it.

App always crashes when you open it from a notification. Attempted to open the app and watch a live video and the sound didn't work. Never have any luck with this app. Needs a TON of work. (iPhone 7 Plus) user.

by M2441 on 2017/05/06 13:00
Every time I open the app from a notification the app just closes in 2 seconds. Even reinstalled app works the same. Ok if you don't use notifications.
App freezes up
by oh noooo not again on 2019/12/05 18:05
It keeps freezing up & now it turned black when I clicked on a story
Not Enuff Local News!

Go ahead and rewrite Journal-Sentinel and AP statewide wire so we get better local and Wisco news! Your site is much better than Madison's morning paper's.

Worst news app

Get rid of the pop up when you open the app. It is annoying and I will delete if not removed soon.
Can’t see the news for the commercials

Too many commercials to navigate through to get to the story.
Not a good update!

Next time test your app before you release it.
I miss the old format...

Just Another Madison news channel
by Unhappy Taxpayer on 2019/01/18 22:17
The reporting done by all 3 in this town is garbage. All liberal mindless crap. Liberals are all good, Republicans are all bad. It gets tiring. Thanks for making my decision to cancel TV really easy.
Too many commercials!
by Catnurse6112 on 2014/10/29 12:23
This used to be a great local news app, but since the last few updates you are unable to access the news portions easily. You are immediately routed to ad after ad (I do expect some advertising to help make money on this free app), but the ad movies will just leave you looking at a blank screen and you have to constantly get out of the app and get back in to finish reading the news story. It has finally become unusable, which is really too bad because I used this app multiple times a day. Not worth it when the ads constantly get hung up and lead to black screen. There has to be some balance here between advertising and app usability and they haven't found it yet.
Lots of freezing, crashing
by Msz1221 on 2019/12/21 01:28
Not a good app. Freezes constantly or will crash randomly.

Really- every single time I open the app- I tell myself I won’t watch the people you are advertising. Lay off the splash ads!
