I cannot tell you how enjoyable this website is. I am 66 years old and it is important for me to get the latest updates.
Needs COVID update
by Doubloh on 2020/03/30 16:04
Great app but it only stores the most recent 6-7 stories. In this crisis that means that only the last 6 hours or so of the stories are available to read. Probably fine for slow news days but not good now. Seems like it would be simple to change the list to the last 100 or so stories.

I’ve tried multiple local apps here in Nashville. I’m most impressed by your app. It provides timely updates on news and weather information.

Nice app for my local news. Sometimes I get a notification about an event, but when I check the app it is not listed. Quite frustrating.

This is our go to station in the morning and lots of news during the day. Programs we favor are on WKRN like the View, Dr Phil and Kelly and Ryan to name few. The program that comes on at twelve you may take off.
Lying about the impeachment hearing.
by eddydonmac on 2019/11/20 22:17
Eric Egan is wrong. Sondland said no one told him there was a quid pro quo. Cover the whole thing not the false narrative.
Ads
by How far is the coffee shop on 2019/11/20 14:22
Too many advertisements. If that’s what keeps the app going then I guess that’s the way it has to be.
Notifications
by Pilar Esperanza on 2019/11/15 12:01
I like to get news notifications throughout the day. However, tap on the notification and I’m taken to other stories. I can’t find the item about which I was originally notified.

Redneck news
by Hosiebosie on 2019/10/23 19:19
Scratching my head here... Nashville is predominantly white... it’s amazing how many people of color are highlighted in the breaking news notifications...but at one point I’m looking at a page on crime trackers tab that features nothing but a slew of African American teens with a sprinkle of white American women..ulterior motive much?...sigh
Needs help
by Jkeeton on 2019/10/19 14:36
The app sends notifications that will say things like “see security video footage” or “dash cam video” so you’ll click the notification hoping to see a video of a burglary or car chase but instead there will be a picture that looks to be the beginning of the video but isn’t. It’s just a picture. Then you’ll read through the story, hoping still to find a video or a link to it, and there is no video. This is the only local news app I have that will send out a notification saying there is video and there is not. It’s especially frustrating because a grainy photo of the beginning of a video does not help the public. We as the public, expect our news stations to send us videos when they say they are so we can identity these potentially dangerous suspects and know the extent of their crimes. To be safe, if they can’t fix why it’s not posting the videos with the stories like the app supposed to, then temporarily they should at least send out photos of the people we should be looking out for.

It’s bad enough that we’re paying top dollar for tv services, but to have your favorite channel just disappear ! Just got up ready for cup of coffee to watch favorite news casts on channel 2 and nothing! Very very disappointing ~ May consider going to another provider on internet ~~ Lousy customer service has brought down even the most thought of companies.....

by Eeebowleye on 2019/07/03 12:15
I’ve had this app for years, but have been plagued with “couldn’t connect to internet” and old stories that don’t get updated over the weekend. I also feel that News 2 choice of news coverage has fallen below sub par to other News outlets. Could be worse I guess...CNN
Glitches
by @krazybb22 on 2019/07/01 22:58
The app needs improvement on being able to actually open it.
What have you done..?
by Chetly on 2019/06/30 13:00
The helpful weather forecast page is now absent... By that i mean you click on where it should be and nothing happens. Also... Pictures on stories are now so blurry you can't even see what's happening in them.... Using completely wrong resolution. What's going on over there.... Lord of the flies..? It's like middle schoolers are running the digital media section there.

Keeps crashing
by SassyVonB on 2019/06/13 17:23
This is the only local news app that I’ve used, however, ever since the updates and changes to the app it crashes on me EVERY time I try to use it. No other app on my phone does this. The new format isn’t as user friendly anymore, either. Being able to swipe left before was WAY better than forcing you to go to the bottom of the article (that you’d rather skip over) before you can switch to the next. Sorry, but I’m looking at other local new apps now. Just my 2cents🤷🏻‍♀️
WKRN keeps you updated, weather, breaking news, etc....

News 2 is great at keeping you informed on the go, with weather, breaking news and traffic! Thank you WKRN News 2!
Alerts/notifications
by DebsLeebr on 2019/05/18 02:59
I like the updates during the day but often find it difficult to find story related to notification
Too many notifications
by TnGunNut14 on 2019/05/06 13:50
I have my app set to weather notifications only yet it still sends me non weather related notifications. Some prince in Europe having a baby is not breaking news and I don’t need a notification about it. I know this issue isn’t necessarily with the app itself, but with whomever is tagging the articles. This seems to be a common issue with Nashville news stations. I already deleted my news channel 4 app for this same issue. Probably will delete this one too. I only want the notifications that I select. Not a fan of having to sort through 20 notifications to figure out which ones are relevant to me.
TOO MANY NOTIFICATIONS 😩
by @fly23 on 2019/05/03 03:22
I love the app but even after turning the notifications off they still kept coming ALL DAY NONSTOP 🤦‍♂️
Worthless notifications
by overreactor's news app on 2019/03/19 10:33
Every story is “breaking news.” 15 notifications a day. A little excessive. But then it gets better. The “breaking news” notifications don’t take you to a story. Or if it does, it is a poorly written article. Look at other reviews. Seems to be a trend.
Fewer interruptions please

Doesn’t provide news stories from notifications
by jjjwww676767 on 2019/02/13 05:49
This app needs lots of work to sync notifications with actual news stories from notifications. I get a notification, click on it, and the news story does not appear. Very frustrating
Great team

Notifications are worthless
by 4wvrstn on 2018/11/18 14:52
App notification is more of a teaser add for broadcasts, instead of linking to a story that is available to read immediately the alerts are for news that will be live streamed.

Enunciation and proper pronouncing
by reality and reason on 2018/09/15 03:39
I do wish the reporters, and those at the desk, would be careful in how they pronounce words and even to assure what they are saying is correct. The trees in South Carolina are palmettos not palms. Explaining a situation by using me, myself in the same sentence should not be necessary since me and myself are the same person and one of those will explain that person is present Improper spelling occurs often in written form when the TV anchors are presenting the news and news is scrolling at the bottom of the TV.
The Morning Traffic Girl

Newscast via your app.
by Concerned customer JD on 2018/06/12 22:34
I used to be able to listen to the news from my app, and get live weather reports from your App. Now all I can get is a portion of the news and then a constant loop of commercials that never stop playing over and over and over. It could not be more frustrating!! I wish she would fix this problem! It has been very frustrating trying to pick up your news cast as I drive home from work.....

by CAtreasurehunter on 2018/06/08 16:14
The folks at WKRN have really stepped up with making middle Tennesseans all over feel they are important! From keeping all of us informed with news, providing us with safety information of weather events, to reaching out to families who have been devastated, and so much more you are truly serving this area! May God richly bless the efforts of WKRN leaders and their staff!
You were there for us !
by switched to 2 on 2018/06/04 00:20
I’ve been an avid follower of another channel’s news for years; however, you made a believer out of me when you were ‘there’ with the Dickson County news when other channels had nonsense programs on after hours. I don’t know the specifics of how it works, but if you could have extended programming, I’m sure other channels could as well. Thank you for keeping us informed about the blue alert. It was as if it was our brother, too, because we are proud of our men/women in blue and of all who serve. We were there with you and the searchers as you kept us informed, praying for the capture and for safety and healing of broken and shattered hearts. Now, continuing to believe Baby Joe will be brought home.
Love News 2, just not the app
by Klynn216 on 2018/05/31 10:55
The notifications never lead to the story it’s related to. I usually just end up googling the story.
Weather
by gregory d star on 2018/05/31 00:44
I’d like to see an occasional story or quick blurb about the rain year to date or it’s colder or wetter than usual. Perhaps an overall seasonal look ahead or farmers forecast to plant early or whatever. You have a couple of weather people who have great personalities that could present in a “non robotic” and informative fashion. Thanks...Greg Star

by Tennessee jenn on 2018/05/07 15:25
The app will suddenly crash after reading a few articles. Clicking on the weather link to see a 7day forecast is looking for the needle in a haystack. Too many “weather” options, instead of just showing the daily forecast and 7 day projection.

by Dennis Grandinetti on 2018/05/03 20:24
This channel 2 news app is slightly better than its competitors. But not by much. They send you breaking news but when you tap to view the app doesn’t have the story. My second issue is too much self promotion and advertising. When you click to see important breaking news story or dangerous weather you don’t want to see advertising first. Sometimes seconds count. Come on WKRN are you so desperate for dollars that you put your audience in risk for advertising. Please don’t make me download channel 4 to listen to Lisa Spencer
Bring back old traffic map
by Hdrider18 on 2018/05/03 10:48
The new design of the traffic map is terrible!!! It reduced the size of the map by 50% making it totally useless on my phone... Being a “daily” driver I cannot avoid bad traffic or road closures as the map is too small for a quick glance.

by Debszoo1013 on 2018/05/02 13:55
Love the ap, but not a fan of the new format. Like the breaking news alerts, but still preferred the older format. Have to jump through hoops now, to get the information that was so much easier to read in the old format.
Too many notifications
by Nickybird 13 on 2018/05/01 20:36
This is my go to app for all local news. I do think, however, there needs to be less notifications unless there’s breaking news such as a crime alert, weather, other warnings, etc. I’m constantly receiving notifications from this app and it gets a little annoying at times. Your editorial team could also use a proofreader before publishing stories. With the rapid change of news, I’m sure this might be challenging but there needs to be a second or third set of eyes checking that the content is not only accurate, but grammatically correct as much as possible. This is just what we expect from a news organization.

by tennischick724 on 2018/04/03 10:56

What Happened?
by Gigi2all on 2018/03/08 18:53
I loved the breaking news, but now my notification is a banner that says “notification” and when I go there I have to watch an advertisement. I’m deleting the app. I will check out apps from other news sources. An ad at the bottom of the breaking news is one thing, but actually requiring a video ad before getting the “breaking” news really defeats the purpose. Only thing “breaking” is the app itself.
Won’t Work!?!?!
by hill Preston on 2018/01/16 01:13
I click on it and it starts to load goes to black screen for a minute and then it kicks me off the app it won’t let me get on it to do anything I have tried re installing it and it won’t work.
Why did you change a good thing?
by Doc1769 on 2018/01/10 04:06
I used to enjoy your app before you changed it. Now I hardly bother looking at it. The old format allowed users to easily find anything they needed - weather, school closings, local stories, news... it just seemed to have much more to offer than the new one... lots more lists and links. Please, please change it back...
Very Disappointed in the Update
by Beardie Momma on 2017/11/22 03:32
After the app updated, you cannot see pictures in the news story. While reading the story, you find yourself reading the caption for a picture, but the picture isn’t there! Fix It!!
Traffic
by Ichabod Wu on 2017/11/09 19:56
Please fix the traffic button within the app.. it either won’t open or when it does it’s so tiny you can tell what’s what. Then there is a big white dead space at the bottom of the map.
Please allow more choices for which notifications are pushed!
by Yung chilly mane on 2017/11/04 20:49
I like having notifications on for breaking news that is actually important, but this app constantly pushes notifications for news that is not worth checking immediately, in addition to extremely annoying WATCH LIVE NOW notifications. If there was a way to choose what sort of news stories you receive notifications for, it would greatly improve the app.
Just one big Commercial
by Lope fade on 2017/10/08 05:10
The app is not user friendly, and everything is an advertisement. Open the app to advertisers and it never stops, which is the reason I deleted this app. I had it for years, but it just got terrible with the pop ups every tap.
Still crap
by Reallyjosh on 2017/10/05 22:58
Crashed 6 times trying to watch one press conference in app. The application just keeps getting worse and worse with every update. I really like news 2 and would like to use their app, but it just flat out doesn't deliver the news in a readable format. It's awful.
Horrible
by MrDerryK on 2017/09/21 17:32
I’ve seen other stations use this app, and this app SUUUUUCKS. The lack of so many features compared to the previous version is amazing, and such a horrible step BACKWARDS for WKRN. Major fail.

Too many notifications
by TnGunNut14 on 2019/05/06 13:50
I have my app set to weather notifications only yet it still sends me non weather related notifications. Some prince in Europe having a baby is not breaking news and I don’t need a notification about it. I know this issue isn’t necessarily with the app itself, but with whomever is tagging the articles. This seems to be a common issue with Nashville news stations. I already deleted my news channel 4 app for this same issue. Probably will delete this one too. I only want the notifications that I select. Not a fan of having to sort through 20 notifications to figure out which ones are relevant to me.
Enunciation and proper pronouncing
by reality and reason on 2018/09/15 03:39
I do wish the reporters, and those at the desk, would be careful in how they pronounce words and even to assure what they are saying is correct. The trees in South Carolina are palmettos not palms. Explaining a situation by using me, myself in the same sentence should not be necessary since me and myself are the same person and one of those will explain that person is present Improper spelling occurs often in written form when the TV anchors are presenting the news and news is scrolling at the bottom of the TV.
What happened to my channel!!!
by Tennesee Granny on 2019/07/04 12:19
It’s bad enough that we’re paying top dollar for tv services, but to have your favorite channel just disappear ! Just got up ready for cup of coffee to watch favorite news casts on channel 2 and nothing! Very very disappointing ~ May consider going to another provider on internet ~~ Lousy customer service has brought down even the most thought of companies.....
Disappointing
by Dennis Grandinetti on 2018/05/03 20:24
This channel 2 news app is slightly better than its competitors. But not by much. They send you breaking news but when you tap to view the app doesn’t have the story. My second issue is too much self promotion and advertising. When you click to see important breaking news story or dangerous weather you don’t want to see advertising first. Sometimes seconds count. Come on WKRN are you so desperate for dollars that you put your audience in risk for advertising. Please don’t make me download channel 4 to listen to Lisa Spencer
Newscast via your app.
by Concerned customer JD on 2018/06/12 22:34
I used to be able to listen to the news from my app, and get live weather reports from your App. Now all I can get is a portion of the news and then a constant loop of commercials that never stop playing over and over and over. It could not be more frustrating!! I wish she would fix this problem! It has been very frustrating trying to pick up your news cast as I drive home from work.....
Please allow more choices for which notifications are pushed!
by Yung chilly mane on 2017/11/04 20:49
I like having notifications on for breaking news that is actually important, but this app constantly pushes notifications for news that is not worth checking immediately, in addition to extremely annoying WATCH LIVE NOW notifications. If there was a way to choose what sort of news stories you receive notifications for, it would greatly improve the app.

by CAtreasurehunter on 2018/06/08 16:14
The folks at WKRN have really stepped up with making middle Tennesseans all over feel they are important! From keeping all of us informed with news, providing us with safety information of weather events, to reaching out to families who have been devastated, and so much more you are truly serving this area! May God richly bless the efforts of WKRN leaders and their staff!
UPDATE NOT NEEDED!
by RooftopRumbleGTAv on 2017/09/12 03:37
Screw you News 2! You changed your app to where you have to get another app just to view the weather. The previous version of the App was fine. I could look at the weather and radar and look at news stories all in one. Now, I have to download a separate weather app to view the radar. It wasn't broke but yet you felt the need to fix it. I do not understand why companies constantly feel like they have to change how things work when the current system is doing just fine.
Keeps crashing
by SassyVonB on 2019/06/13 17:23
This is the only local news app that I’ve used, however, ever since the updates and changes to the app it crashes on me EVERY time I try to use it. No other app on my phone does this. The new format isn’t as user friendly anymore, either. Being able to swipe left before was WAY better than forcing you to go to the bottom of the article (that you’d rather skip over) before you can switch to the next. Sorry, but I’m looking at other local new apps now. Just my 2cents🤷🏻‍♀️
Quick easy to read news that keeps me updated
by Wish I was home on 2018/05/30 13:52
Always the updates that are important. Easy to use to read the news updates that are important
Needs COVID update
by Doubloh on 2020/03/30 16:04
Great app but it only stores the most recent 6-7 stories. In this crisis that means that only the last 6 hours or so of the stories are available to read. Probably fine for slow news days but not good now. Seems like it would be simple to change the list to the last 100 or so stories.
What have you done..?
by Chetly on 2019/06/30 13:00
The helpful weather forecast page is now absent... By that i mean you click on where it should be and nothing happens. Also... Pictures on stories are now so blurry you can't even see what's happening in them.... Using completely wrong resolution. What's going on over there.... Lord of the flies..? It's like middle schoolers are running the digital media section there.
Notifications come too soon
by lp1001 on 2018/05/21 16:08
Not sure why but every time I get a notification and try to open, I get a message saying they are experiencing technical difficulties. If trying to be the first to notify people, please be sure to have the story link ready.
What Happened?
by Gigi2all on 2018/03/08 18:53
I loved the breaking news, but now my notification is a banner that says “notification” and when I go there I have to watch an advertisement. I’m deleting the app. I will check out apps from other news sources. An ad at the bottom of the breaking news is one thing, but actually requiring a video ad before getting the “breaking” news really defeats the purpose. Only thing “breaking” is the app itself.
Retired husband and me
by Dickletn1 on 2019/12/15 23:41
This is our go to station in the morning and lots of news during the day. Programs we favor are on WKRN like the View, Dr Phil and Kelly and Ryan to name few. The program that comes on at twelve you may take off.
Some work is needed.
by Tennessee jenn on 2018/05/07 15:25
The app will suddenly crash after reading a few articles. Clicking on the weather link to see a 7day forecast is looking for the needle in a haystack. Too many “weather” options, instead of just showing the daily forecast and 7 day projection.

News review
by cant all be taken! on 2018/05/05 11:45
Often you can’t just read the news without the live broadcast which I can’t have on in a waiting room. Just need to read. And all the ads are annoying! Never know what is a link to access my personal info by hackers so I never click on them.
New format
by Debszoo1013 on 2018/05/02 13:55
Love the ap, but not a fan of the new format. Like the breaking news alerts, but still preferred the older format. Have to jump through hoops now, to get the information that was so much easier to read in the old format.

Why did you change a good thing?

I used to enjoy your app before you changed it. Now I hardly bother looking at it. The old format allowed users to easily find anything they needed - weather, school closings, local stories, news... it just seemed to have much more to offer than the new one... lots more lists and links. Please, please change it back...
Weather
by gregory d star on 2018/05/31 00:44
I’d like to see an occasional story or quick blurb about the rain year to date or it’s colder or wetter than usual. Perhaps an overall seasonal look ahead or farmers forecast to plant early or whatever. You have a couple of weather people who have great personalities that could present in a “non robotic” and informative fashion. Thanks...Greg Star

Bring back old traffic map
by Hdrider18 on 2018/05/03 10:48
The new design of the traffic map is terrible!!! It reduced the size of the map by 50% making it totally useless on my phone... Being a “daily” driver I cannot avoid bad traffic or road closures as the map is too small for a quick glance.

Notifications are worthless
by 4wvrstn on 2018/11/18 14:52
App notification is more of a teaser add for broadcasts, instead of linking to a story that is available to read immediately the alerts are for news that will be live streamed.

by Hosiebosie on 2019/10/23 19:19
Scratching my head here... Nashville is predominantly white... it’s amazing how many people of color are highlighted in the breaking news notifications...but at one point I’m looking at a page on crime trackers tab that features nothing but a slew of African American teens with a sprinkle of white American women..ulterior motive much?...sigh
Needs help
by Jkeeton on 2019/10/19 14:36
The app sends notifications that will say things like “see security video footage” or “dash cam video” so you’ll click the notification hoping to see a video of a burglary or car chase but instead there will be a picture that looks to be the beginning of the video but isn’t. It’s just a picture. Then you’ll read through the story, hoping still to find a video or a link to it, and there is no video. This is the only local news app I have that will send out a notification saying there is video and there is not. It’s especially frustrating because a grainy photo of the beginning of a video does not help the public. We as the public, expect our news stations to send us videos when they say they are so we can identity these potentially dangerous suspects and know the extent of their crimes. To be safe, if they can’t fix why it’s not posting the videos with the stories like the app supposed to, then temporarily they should at least send out photos of the people we should be looking out for.

Too many notifications
by TnGunNut14 on 2019/05/06 13:50
I have my app set to weather notifications only yet it still sends me non weather related notifications. Some prince in Europe having a baby is not breaking news and I don’t need a notification about it. I know this issue isn’t necessarily with the app itself, but with whomever is tagging the articles. This seems to be a common issue with Nashville news stations. I already deleted my news channel 4 app for this same issue. Probably will delete this one too. I only want the notifications that I select. Not a fan of having to sort through 20 notifications to figure out which ones are relevant to me.

Worthless notifications
by overreactor's news app on 2019/03/19 10:33
Every story is “breaking news.” 15 notifications a day. A little excessive. But then it gets better. The “breaking news” notifications don’t take you to a story. Or if it does, it is a poorly written article. Look at other reviews. Seems to be a trend.

by 4wvrstn on 2018/11/18 14:52
App notification is more of a teaser add for broadcasts, instead of linking to a story that is available to read immediately the alerts are for news that will be live streamed.

Enunciation and proper pronouncing
by reality and reason on 2018/09/15 03:39
I do wish the reporters, and those at the desk, would be careful in how they pronounce words and even to assure what they are saying is correct. The trees in South Carolina are palmettos not palms. Explaining a situation by using me, myself in the same sentence should not be necessary since me and myself are the same person and one of those will explain that person is present Improper spelling occurs often in written form when the TV anchors are presenting the news and news is scrolling at the bottom of the TV.

I used to be able to listen to the news from my app, and get live weather reports from your App. Now all I can get is a portion of the news and then a constant loop of commercials that never stop playing over and over and over. It could not be more frustrating!! I wish she would fix this problem! It has been very frustrating trying to pick up your news cast as I drive home from work.....

I’ve been an avid follower of another channel’s news for years; however, you made a believer out of me when you were ‘there’ with the Dickson County news when other channels had nonsense programs on after hours. I don’t know the specifics of how it works, but if you could have extended programming, I’m sure other channels could as well. Thank you for keeping us informed about the blue alert. It was as if it was our brother, too, because we are proud of our men/women in blue and of all who serve. We were there with you and the searchers as you kept us informed, praying for the capture and for safety and healing of broken and shattered hearts. Now, continuing to believe Baby Joe will be brought home.

This channel 2 news app is slightly better than its competitors. But not by much. They send you breaking news but when you tap to view the app doesn’t have the story. My second issue is too much self promotion and advertising. When you click to see important breaking news story or dangerous weather you don’t want to see advertising first. Sometimes seconds count. Come on WKRN are you so desperate for dollars that you put your audience in risk for advertising. Please don’t make me download channel 4 to listen to Lisa Spencer

App does not work when its storming. Very liberal and biased channel. Who ever does the headlines on tv cant spell worth a crap. Weather map on app constantly has glitches and is not reliable when needed most"when its stormy.

by Debszoo1013 on 2018/05/02 13:55
Love the ap, but not a fan of the new format. Like the breaking news alerts, but still preferred the older format. Have to jump through hoops now, to get the information that was so much easier to read in the old format.
Too many notifications
by Nickybird 13 on 2018/05/01 20:36
This is my go to app for all local news. I do think, however, there needs to be less notifications unless there’s breaking news such as a crime alert, weather, other warnings, etc. I’m constantly receiving notifications from this app and it gets a little annoying at times. Your editorial team could also use a proofreader before publishing stories. With the rapid change of news, I’m sure this might be challenging but there needs to be a second or third set of eyes checking that the content is not only accurate, but grammatically correct as much as possible. This is just what we expect from a news organization.

What Happened?
by Gigi2all on 2018/03/08 18:53
I loved the breaking news, but now my notification is a banner that says “notification” and when I go there I have to watch an advertisement. I’m deleting the app. I will check out apps from other news sources. An ad at the bottom of the breaking news is one thing, but actually requiring a video ad before getting the “breaking” news really defeats the purpose. Only thing “breaking” is the app itself.
Won’t Work!?!?!

I used to enjoy your app before you changed it. Now I hardly bother looking at it.

Please, please change it back...
Very Disappointed in the Update
by Beardie Momma on 2017/11/22 03:32
After the app updated, you cannot see pictures in the news story. While reading the story, you find yourself reading the caption for a picture, but the picture isn’t there! Fix It!!
Traffic
by Ichabod Wu on 2017/11/09 19:56
Please fix the traffic button within the app.. it either won’t open or when it does it’s so tiny you can tell what’s what. Then there is a big white dead space at the bottom of the map.
Please allow more choices for which notifications are pushed!
by Yung chilly mane on 2017/11/04 20:49
I like having notifications on for breaking news that is actually important, but this app constantly pushes notifications for news that is not worth checking immediately, in addition to extremely annoying WATCH LIVE NOW notifications. If there was a way to choose what sort of news stories you receive notifications for, it would greatly improve the app.
Just one big Commercial
by Lope fade on 2017/10/08 05:10
The app is not user friendly, and everything is an advertisement. Open the app to advertisers and it never stops, which is the reason I deleted this app. I had it for years, but it just got terrible with the pop ups every tap.
Still crap
by Reallyjosh on 2017/10/05 22:58
Crashed 6 times trying to watch one press conference in app. The application just keeps getting worse and worse with every update. I really like news 2 and would like to use their app, but it just flat out doesn't deliver the news in a readable format. It's awful.
Horrible
by MrDerryK on 2017/09/21 17:32
I’ve seen other stations use this app, and this app SUUUUUCKS. The lack of so many features compared to the previous version is amazing, and such a horrible step BACKWARDS for WKRN. Major fail.
Needs help
by Jkeeton on 2019/10/19 14:36
The app sends notifications that will say things like “see security video footage” or “dash cam video” so you’ll click the notification hoping to see a video of a burglary or car chase but instead there will be a picture that looks to be the beginning of the video but isn’t. It’s just a picture. Then you’ll read through the story, hoping still to find a video or a link to it, and there is no video. This is the only local news app I have that will send out a notification saying there is video and there is not. It’s especially frustrating because a grainy photo of the beginning of a video does not help the public. We as the public, expect our news stations to send us videos when they say they are so we can identity these potentially dangerous suspects and know the extent of their crimes. To be safe, if they can’t fix why it’s not posting the videos with the stories like the app supposed to, then temporarily they should at least send out photos of the people we should be looking out for.

by TnGunNut14 on 2019/05/06 13:50
I have my app set to weather notifications only yet it still sends me non weather related notifications. Some prince in Europe having a baby is not breaking news and I don’t need a notification about it. I know this issue isn’t necessarily with the app itself, but with whomever is tagging the articles. This seems to be a common issue with Nashville news stations. I already deleted my news channel 4 app for this same issue. Probably will delete this one too. I only want the notifications that I select. Not a fan of having to sort through 20 notifications to figure out which ones are relevant to me.
Enunciation and proper pronouncing
by reality and reason on 2018/09/15 03:39
I do wish the reporters, and those at the desk, would be careful in how they pronounce words and even to assure what they are saying is correct. The trees in South Carolina are palmettos not palms. Explaining a situation by using me, myself in the same sentence should not be necessary since me and myself are the same person and one of those will explain that person is present Improper spelling occurs often in written form when the TV anchors are presenting the news and news is scrolling at the bottom of the TV.

UPDATE NOT NEEDED!
by RooftopRumbleGTAv on 2017/09/12 03:37
Screw you News 2! You changed your app to where you have to get another app just to view the weather. The previous version of the App was fine. I could look at the weather and radar and look at news stories all in one. Now, I have to download a separate weather app to view the radar. It wasn't broke but yet you felt the need to fix it. I do not understand why companies constantly feel like they have to change how things work when the current system is doing just fine.
Keeps crashing
by SassyVonB on 2019/06/13 17:23
This is the only local news app that I’ve used, however, ever since the updates and changes to the app it crashes on me EVERY time I try to use it. No other app on my phone does this. The new format isn’t as user friendly anymore, either. Being able to swipe left before was WAY better than forcing you to go to the bottom of the article (that you’d rather skip over) before you can switch to the next. Sorry, but I’m looking at other local new apps now. Just my 2cents🤷🏻‍♀️

by Doubloh on 2020/03/30 16:04
Great app but it only stores the most recent 6-7 stories. In this crisis that means that only the last 6 hours or so of the stories are available to read. Probably fine for slow news days but not good now. Seems like it would be simple to change the list to the last 100 or so stories.
What have you done..?
by Chetly on 2019/06/30 13:00
The helpful weather forecast page is now absent... By that i mean you click on where it should be and nothing happens. Also...

It's like middle schoolers are running the digital media section there.

New app isn’t as easy to use compared to the older versions. When trying to vote on some it won’t take me to the voting screen when you tap where it tells you to tap here.

I’m a Nashville Native and I wake up every morning to News 2 at 6 am. I check my News 2 app religiously!

I love the APP, especially now that is all I can see you on. Channel 2 is my ONLY got I for NEWS. Where I live we only get Direct TV. Please get back on Direct TV!😢
Notifications are worthless

App notification is more of a teaser add for broadcasts, instead of linking to a story that is available to read immediately the alerts are for news that will be live streamed.
