More than one issue
by previosly bad on 2020/11/11 11:59
1. Apartments.com ad just speaks out loud. Suppose I’m in a setting where I need to be quiet and just wanna check on a story, did y’all ever think about that before just letting it talk out loud at random 2. The app constantly freezes. It just pauses while reading so I have to close it out and open it up again. 3. The app just crashes while reading it so I have to open it up again and it’ll crashes again. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it and it still crashes every time I use it.
Love the app
by Imkiarabxtch on 2020/11/04 03:56
I enjoy the app because it keeps me up to date with I mean ALL of the local news, but it kicks me out everytime I use it. It’s annoying, I wish they would fix the bugs to prevent it from doing so..
Problems with this app
by Raddad530 on 2020/10/31 23:29
I enjoy reading the news on this app but I have problems with it crashing, locking up and disappearing entirely when I’m reading a story. Very frustrating .
Bias
by 1BeccaLynn on 2020/10/13 12:03
All news stations are reporting the news in a bias sensational manner to instill fear and promote their ratings. No good journalism or reporting of just the facts anymore. I assure you that if you went back to just reporting the news your viewership would soar!
Shuts down
by Pijhytfvbnbhbh on 2020/10/06 10:44
I used to like the app , but last few weeks it shuts down within seconds of opening the app , I've deleted and re-installed it and it continues
App is Unstable
by DMVnative on 2020/08/21 18:01
The app is unstable and buggy. It constantly hangs while loading pages, forces itself to quit, becomes unresponsive for 5+ seconds, and I have had it render my phone useless until i did a forced shutdown of the entire device. The articles are diverse and written with higher quality than NBC12 or CBS6, but this app must’ve been designed as a beta. Far too unpolished to be taken seriously as a fully-developed app.
Constant lock-ups and crashes
by Houseofburgesses on 2020/08/02 11:48
Crashes constantly since the latest IOS update. Was my Go-To news app but now it has been unusable for over a month.
WRIC 8NEWS!
by Wrbellsugar on 2020/07/31 10:29
I absolutely love this app. WRIC is my favorite source for local news in Richmond. I can look at what’s happening anywhere I go. I can check the weather forecast as well.
Crashes/Freezes
by SingaDinga on 2020/05/25 04:29
App crashes and freezes almost every time I use it. I love WRIC and prefer to follow/watch/read WRIC but it’s a tad frustrating when the app continually crashes.

Best RVA Local News App
by VTach359 on 2020/03/12 15:11
I just downloaded this within the last 2 weeks. It’s so much better than 12’s or 6’s app - both in design and content. In fact, it’s better than most of the national news apps I use. Nicely done!

It give news, but I do notice many of its articles are very biased and provide subjective and/or incomplete information. Now I understand why so many people are misinformed. Bring back journalists who are fair, balanced, and do accurate unbiased reporting.

I 💜💜 this News app! Its on point and keep me updated with school closures, weather, sports, Breaking News and the News in general! I’ve told my friends about it! ABC has always been my favorite News station! Honestly, I downloaded the app because I was out of town and my youngest son is in Middle school. I wanted to keep abreast what was happening with the snow and school closings! I’m glad that I downloaded this app...ABC News 8 WRIC...🎉Happy Holidays to Everyone 🎉🎄✨
Ruined it
by Fox Top on 2018/09/17 19:46
This was a good app that I used often. Especially liked the map weather feature. Now that’s gone. App not as user friendly. Can’t choose what to see first. More ads and poor map feature. Very disappointed. Won’t be using this app anymore.
Ehh, it’s ok
by mags777 on 2018/05/11 23:07
I do like the pop ups for breaking news until the stories aren’t updated at all. There have been a few since I started using this app that have fallen through the cracks. I am also a bit disappointed that I cannot search for a report that was only on 8. I attempted to look it up on your site and even YouTube with no luck. Is there a way to categorize your investigative reports by reporter, category, date, etc.?
Old app was MUCH BETTER!
by Digitalscotty on 2018/01/27 13:52
The old app was great! The new app is horrible. Going to use the NBC 12 weather app now.
Always on top all events and weather
by MidniteFallynStar on 2017/11/01 21:09
Can always rely on 8 news when it comes to all events and weather. No one can top them. Been a channel 8 news watcher since I was young. Keep up the great work😃. Still on top of everything! Keep up great work!
App stinks
by Hfsbbuccfbjg on 2017/10/30 22:45
Channel 8 if you are listening you need to change the weather back to way it was on the old app. This new app is horrible. I use other apps to check the weather now.
8 news app, older version easier
by Gary2310 on 2017/09/13 10:36
Well I haven't finished exploring all areas. I'm disappointed with the weather part the older version was so much easier to navigate. Things like humidity and dew point was easy to find, the newest version humidity is buried and it takes a while to get to, forget trying to find Dew Point! Wish they would change that.
Angry and Disappointed
by LakotasDen on 2017/03/30 02:22
Will not launch.
Too much advertising!
by NP4Babies on 2015/12/04 10:57
I used to really like this app. But now, I can't click on an article without having to close out a pop-up advertisement. This happens with every news story! Sadly, I will be using other news app which allows me to read the article without the pop-ups.
Number notification is BROKEN!!!
by emapva on 2015/09/01 02:39
I've had this app for a long time, but just recently the number notification (red # on the app icon) has just been increasing! At first, I thought, no biggie because I usually read the news at least once, sometimes twice a day. But the past 2 days have been crazy, and my number has jumped to 33! I'm annoyed that I can't dismiss it now. They need to fix this ASAP!! 😩😖
Notification number
by Goste82 on 2015/08/27 22:56
My notification number will not clear even after I open the app. The number is just building up.
Can't clear the notifications.
by Dariam1971 on 2015/08/27 14:08
I have viewed all of the news stories, but the indicator is showing I have more to view. There is no way to clear all or at least mark all as read.
Hate notifications
by Me gvvhkb on 2015/08/26 01:45
I hate that in this update the notifications numbers stay until you view each item. I liked that it used to clear off when I opened the app.
Intrusive Google ads
by DG VA on 2015/04/28 04:46
Format seems well organized. No sound is a glitch that will likely be corrected. Ridiculously intrusive Google ads on the other hand is obnoxious. If you like privacy of any sort, clearly this is not the app for you. It will not be for me.
Informative
by n2tchng on 2015/03/28 01:25
Hard to catch the news, but this keeps me up to date!!!
Okay
by SarahD65 on 2015/01/14 20:08
It's good for catching the news on the good. Not enough for areas outside of the RVA area.
Average
by Eac4610 on 2015/01/01 15:42
Up to date. Quality of writing abysmal. Useful Community feature. Cannot find tech support, so will mention here. National andInternational News have been infested with a photo portrait of a young, dark haired woman for about a month now. I had hoped ABC8 would have noticed this and fixed it!

Great Weather And News!!!
by Love WRIC on 2014/09/19 14:09
I use this app at home all the time for weather but this summer I also found it very helpful for weather at St. Augustine Beach and Disney World!! I downloaded apps local to the area but ended up deleting them. The radar map on this app was way better!!! Normally I don't bother with the news (unless it's on TV at the time) but I do follow a lot more news because of this app. It's easily my most used app!! Great job WTVR!!

Incredibly useful app!
by MISMAC1998 on 2013/03/29 12:54
We have 4 kids and a tv in every room of the house, yet I still can't ever seem to catch the news. It's such a relief to know I can access it on this app whenever I need to and wherever I might happen to be. Also great when power was out and schools were closed.
Great, but missing one thing...
by lauriep05 on 2013/03/25 05:15
Really nice, useful app, but there is no pinch to zoom! On an iPhone, that is mandatory. Fix that and it will be an excellent app.
Great for on the go

Number notification is BROKEN!!!
by emapva on 2015/09/01 02:39
I've had this app for a long time, but just recently the number notification (red # on the app icon) has just been increasing! At first, I thought, no biggie because I usually read the news at least once, sometimes twice a day. But the past 2 days have been crazy, and my number has jumped to 33! I'm annoyed that I can't dismiss it now. They need to fix this ASAP!! 😩😖

Up to date. Quality of writing abysmal. Useful Community feature. Cannot find tech support, so will mention here. National andInternational News have been infested with a photo portrait of a young, dark haired woman for about a month now. I had hoped ABC8 would have noticed this and fixed it!

Too much advertising!
by NP4Babies on 2015/12/04 10:57
I used to really like this app. But now, I can't click on an article without having to close out a pop-up advertisement. This happens with every news story! Sadly, I will be using other news app which allows me to read the article without the pop-ups.
Notification number

More than one issue
by previosly bad on 2020/11/11 11:59
1. Apartments.com ad just speaks out loud. Suppose I’m in a setting where I need to be quiet and just wanna check on a story, did y’all ever think about that before just letting it talk out loud at random 2. The app constantly freezes. It just pauses while reading so I have to close it out and open it up again. 3. The app just crashes while reading it so I have to open it up again and it’ll crashes again. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it and it still crashes every time I use it.
Love the app
by Imkiarabxtch on 2020/11/04 03:56
I enjoy the app because it keeps me up to date with I mean ALL of the local news, but it kicks me out everytime I use it. It’s annoying, I wish they would fix the bugs to prevent it from doing so..
Problems with this app
by Raddad530 on 2020/10/31 23:29
I enjoy reading the news on this app but I have problems with it crashing, locking up and disappearing entirely when I’m reading a story. Very frustrating .
Bias
by 1BeccaLynn on 2020/10/13 12:03
All news stations are reporting the news in a bias sensational manner to instill fear and promote their ratings. No good journalism or reporting of just the facts anymore. I assure you that if you went back to just reporting the news your viewership would soar!
Shuts down
by Pijhytfvbnbhbh on 2020/10/06 10:44
I used to like the app , but last few weeks it shuts down within seconds of opening the app , I've deleted and re-installed it and it continues
App is Unstable
by DMVnative on 2020/08/21 18:01
The app is unstable and buggy. It constantly hangs while loading pages, forces itself to quit, becomes unresponsive for 5+ seconds, and I have had it render my phone useless until i did a forced shutdown of the entire device. The articles are diverse and written with higher quality than NBC12 or CBS6, but this app must’ve been designed as a beta. Far too unpolished to be taken seriously as a fully-developed app.
Constant lock-ups and crashes
by Houseofburgesses on 2020/08/02 11:48
Crashes constantly since the latest IOS update. Was my Go-To news app but now it has been unusable for over a month.
WRIC 8NEWS!
by Wrbellsugar on 2020/07/31 10:29
I absolutely love this app. WRIC is my favorite source for local news in Richmond. I can look at what’s happening anywhere I go. I can check the weather forecast as well.
Crashes/Freezes
by SingaDinga on 2020/05/25 04:29
App crashes and freezes almost every time I use it. I love WRIC and prefer to follow/watch/read WRIC but it’s a tad frustrating when the app continually crashes.
I miss Sports!!

Best RVA Local News App
by VTach359 on 2020/03/12 15:11
I just downloaded this within the last 2 weeks. It’s so much better than 12’s or 6’s app - both in design and content. In fact, it’s better than most of the national news apps I use. Nicely done!
Splash screen ad resets stories

Biased
by Breeze9747 on 2019/03/28 11:57
It give news, but I do notice many of its articles are very biased and provide subjective and/or incomplete information. Now I understand why so many people are misinformed. Bring back journalists who are fair, balanced, and do accurate unbiased reporting.
👍🏻👍🏻
by Rockwell1950 on 2019/03/05 17:48
ALWAYS follow 8 news! Love watching Morgan Dean and Katie Dupree in the morning as well as my favorite hilarious, sarcastic, and spot on weather man in the morning Matt DiNardo! Matt ALWAYS puts a smile on my face and makes me laugh!☺️👍🏻👍🏻

ABC has always been my favorite News station! Honestly, I downloaded the app because I was out of town and my youngest son is in Middle school. I wanted to keep abreast what was happening with the snow and school closings! I’m glad that I downloaded this app...ABC News 8 WRIC...🎉Happy Holidays to Everyone 🎉🎄✨
Ruined it
by Fox Top on 2018/09/17 19:46
This was a good app that I used often. Especially liked the map weather feature. Now that’s gone. App not as user friendly. Can’t choose what to see first. More ads and poor map feature. Very disappointed. Won’t be using this app anymore.
Ehh, it’s ok
by mags777 on 2018/05/11 23:07
I do like the pop ups for breaking news until the stories aren’t updated at all. There have been a few since I started using this app that have fallen through the cracks. I am also a bit disappointed that I cannot search for a report that was only on 8. I attempted to look it up on your site and even YouTube with no luck. Is there a way to categorize your investigative reports by reporter, category, date, etc.?
Old app was MUCH BETTER!
by Digitalscotty on 2018/01/27 13:52
The old app was great! The new app is horrible. Going to use the NBC 12 weather app now.
Always on top all events and weather
by MidniteFallynStar on 2017/11/01 21:09
Can always rely on 8 news when it comes to all events and weather. No one can top them. Been a channel 8 news watcher since I was young. Keep up the great work😃. Still on top of everything! Keep up great work!
App stinks
by Hfsbbuccfbjg on 2017/10/30 22:45
Channel 8 if you are listening you need to change the weather back to way it was on the old app. This new app is horrible. I use other apps to check the weather now.
8 news app, older version easier
by Gary2310 on 2017/09/13 10:36
Well I haven't finished exploring all areas. I'm disappointed with the weather part the older version was so much easier to navigate. Things like humidity and dew point was easy to find, the newest version humidity is buried and it takes a while to get to, forget trying to find Dew Point! Wish they would change that.

Number notification is BROKEN!!!
by emapva on 2015/09/01 02:39
I've had this app for a long time, but just recently the number notification (red # on the app icon) has just been increasing! At first, I thought, no biggie because I usually read the news at least once, sometimes twice a day. But the past 2 days have been crazy, and my number has jumped to 33! I'm annoyed that I can't dismiss it now. They need to fix this ASAP!! 😩😖
Notification number

Can't clear the notifications.
by Dariam1971 on 2015/08/27 14:08
I have viewed all of the news stories, but the indicator is showing I have more to view. There is no way to clear all or at least mark all as read.
Hate notifications
by Me gvvhkb on 2015/08/26 01:45
I hate that in this update the notifications numbers stay until you view each item. I liked that it used to clear off when I opened the app.
Intrusive Google ads
by DG VA on 2015/04/28 04:46
Format seems well organized. No sound is a glitch that will likely be corrected. Ridiculously intrusive Google ads on the other hand is obnoxious. If you like privacy of any sort, clearly this is not the app for you. It will not be for me.

I use this app at home all the time for weather but this summer I also found it very helpful for weather at St. Augustine Beach and Disney World!! I downloaded apps local to the area but ended up deleting them. The radar map on this app was way better!!! Normally I don't bother with the news (unless it's on TV at the time) but I do follow a lot more news because of this app. It's easily my most used app!! Great job WTVR!!

I have this app, along with 2 other news apps. It's great because I can be notified of local news, like school closing and traffic. It keeps me informed! I highly recommend this app, along with a couple more for variety.
Incredibly useful app!
by MISMAC1998 on 2013/03/29 12:54
We have 4 kids and a tv in every room of the house, yet I still can't ever seem to catch the news. It's such a relief to know I can access it on this app whenever I need to and wherever I might happen to be. Also great when power was out and schools were closed.
Great, but missing one thing...
by lauriep05 on 2013/03/25 05:15
Really nice, useful app, but there is no pinch to zoom! On an iPhone, that is mandatory. Fix that and it will be an excellent app.

It constantly hangs while loading pages, forces itself to quit, becomes unresponsive for 5+ seconds, and I have had it render my phone useless until i did a forced shutdown of the entire device. The articles are diverse and written with higher quality than NBC12 or CBS6, but this app must’ve been designed as a beta. Far too unpolished to be taken seriously as a fully-developed app.
Great timing of news!

I like your quick updates in news!
Ruined it
by Fox Top on 2018/09/17 19:46
This was a good app that I used often. Especially liked the map weather feature. Now that’s gone. App not as user friendly. Can’t choose what to see first. More ads and poor map feature. Very disappointed. Won’t be using this app anymore.
👍🏻👍🏻
by Rockwell1950 on 2019/03/05 17:48
ALWAYS follow 8 news! Love watching Morgan Dean and Katie Dupree in the morning as well as my favorite hilarious, sarcastic, and spot on weather man in the morning Matt DiNardo! Matt ALWAYS puts a smile on my face and makes me laugh!☺️👍🏻👍🏻
Can not get channel 8 on tv. Only on my phone.
by Jim Bo Jim on 2019/07/31 17:59
Great when I can get it.
Love the app
by Imkiarabxtch on 2020/11/04 03:56
I enjoy the app because it keeps me up to date with I mean ALL of the local news, but it kicks me out everytime I use it. It’s annoying, I wish they would fix the bugs to prevent it from doing so..
Constant lock-ups and crashes
by Houseofburgesses on 2020/08/02 11:48
Crashes constantly since the latest IOS update. Was my Go-To news app but now it has been unusable for over a month.
Great Weather And News!!!
by Love WRIC on 2014/09/19 14:09
I use this app at home all the time for weather but this summer I also found it very helpful for weather at St. Augustine Beach and Disney World!! I downloaded apps local to the area but ended up deleting them. The radar map on this app was way better!!! Normally I don't bother with the news (unless it's on TV at the time) but I do follow a lot more news because of this app. It's easily my most used app!! Great job WTVR!!
Problems with this app
by Raddad530 on 2020/10/31 23:29
I enjoy reading the news on this app but I have problems with it crashing, locking up and disappearing entirely when I’m reading a story. Very frustrating .
News coverage
by Noah Josef on 2019/09/23 04:50
Excellent at times and needs work too. Overall good news
Biased
by Breeze9747 on 2019/03/28 11:57
It give news, but I do notice many of its articles are very biased and provide subjective and/or incomplete information. Now I understand why so many people are misinformed. Bring back journalists who are fair, balanced, and do accurate unbiased reporting.
App stinks
by Hfsbbuccfbjg on 2017/10/30 22:45
Channel 8 if you are listening you need to change the weather back to way it was on the old app. This new app is horrible. I use other apps to check the weather now.
Shuts down
by Pijhytfvbnbhbh on 2020/10/06 10:44
I used to like the app , but last few weeks it shuts down within seconds of opening the app , I've deleted and re-installed it and it continues
Bias
by 1BeccaLynn on 2020/10/13 12:03
All news stations are reporting the news in a bias sensational manner to instill fear and promote their ratings. No good journalism or reporting of just the facts anymore. I assure you that if you went back to just reporting the news your viewership would soar!
Crashes/Freezes
by SingaDinga on 2020/05/25 04:29
App crashes and freezes almost every time I use it. I love WRIC and prefer to follow/watch/read WRIC but it’s a tad frustrating when the app continually crashes.
Wow
by ishitmydrawers on 2019/08/15 19:52
One of the worst aps ever. To basic and slow
Splash screen ad resets stories
by 4mIRRORMERE on 2019/11/01 15:36
Ad splash screen on load sometimes resets news story and article I am interested disappears
Old app was MUCH BETTER!
by Digitalscotty on 2018/01/27 13:52
The old app was great! The new app is horrible. Going to use the NBC 12 weather app now.
Storm tracker
by tahmomma on 2019/08/06 19:50
Storm tracker Apps not working And get back on direct tv
Clean and Fast Richmond News App
by JonGirl on 2012/08/18 14:18
Clean layout makes it easy to navigate. The GPS tracking for weather and traffic is a really handy option. The weather features have everything a dedicated weather app has, video forecasts, even live radar maps you can zoom in down to your own neighborhood. Five stars!
Incredibly useful app!
by MISMAC1998 on 2013/03/29 12:54
We have 4 kids and a tv in every room of the house, yet I still can't ever seem to catch the news. It's such a relief to know I can access it on this app whenever I need to and wherever I might happen to be. Also great when power was out and schools were closed.
Good app
by Gustea2000 on 2013/04/15 10:38
Very reliable, I switched to this news service app for my area because the other news service app always had errors and could not connect, never had a problem with this app.
Wonderful App
by tiffadaeze on 2013/04/08 17:31
I have this app, along with 2 other news apps. It's great because I can be notified of local news, like school closing and traffic. It keeps me informed! I highly recommend this app, along with a couple more for variety.
Great news app
by BlackChynaDoll on 2014/04/20 15:22
This app is great for anyone who wants to get the news, weather, etc. on the go. It gives the exact same information & you can even set up alerts. I definitely recommend it!
Just an island girl! No fancy title here!
by Honolulu girl now in Louisa on 2013/02/05 00:51
Great app for up to the minute news and weather, especially during inclement weather. Best news tv station I've found here! Keep up your great work, guys! Love your news team!!
Easy to use.
by Note Lover"! on 2013/03/06 13:02
Love being able to keep up with my local news when traveling!
Number notification is BROKEN!!!
by emapva on 2015/09/01 02:39
I've had this app for a long time, but just recently the number notification (red # on the app icon) has just been increasing! At first, I thought, no biggie because I usually read the news at least once, sometimes twice a day. But the past 2 days have been crazy, and my number has jumped to 33! I'm annoyed that I can't dismiss it now. They need to fix this ASAP!! 😩😖
Average
by Eac4610 on 2015/01/01 15:42
Up to date. Quality of writing abysmal. Useful Community feature. Cannot find tech support, so will mention here. National andInternational News have been infested with a photo portrait of a young, dark haired woman for about a month now. I had hoped ABC8 would have noticed this and fixed it!
Good Weather
by Doubleit01 on 2013/06/22 23:27
Quick easy access to news and weather.
Great for on the go
by Gjsifnskxk on 2013/03/24 17:39
This app helps me stay up to date on the local news and weather when I'm out of the house.
Easy and user friendly
by Hey Zeus34 on 2012/10/26 15:24
So easy to get my news, weather and traffic.
Great App
by variverhick on 2013/01/27 18:40
Has everything I need, I have 2 other apps from other local news stations and this one is the best.
Great App!!
by Gmuangel on 2012/12/08 13:17
Very informative !! Keeps me updated without having to watch the daily news between meaningless commercials (smile)
Amazing
by =) Ma Bell on 2013/02/02 01:16
Thank you for making the local news available! Y'all are amazing!
Nice app
by Catfish50001 on 2013/05/17 12:49
Keeps me in touch with local news where I have live my entire life I moved 12 miles where I used to live and the local news is Washington DC news
Too much advertising!
by NP4Babies on 2015/12/04 10:57
I used to really like this app. But now, I can't click on an article without having to close out a pop-up advertisement. This happens with every news story! Sadly, I will be using other news app which allows me to read the article without the pop-ups.
Notification number
by Goste82 on 2015/08/27 22:56
My notification number will not clear even after I open the app. The number is just building up.
Informative
by n2tchng on 2015/03/28 01:25
Hard to catch the news, but this keeps me up to date!!!
Cannel 8 app review
by n1montalvo@ Comcast.net on 2012/10/01 09:13
I really like this app better than channel 6. Since I have installed this app I no longer use channel 6 app
Great
by B1111z on 2014/05/27 18:52
App is great wish it would stream more news and weather
Best weather APP
by By JS June 22, 2013 on 2013/06/23 03:30
WRIC APP......This app is the greatest. I live in Middletown Delaware and I use this app more than the local app to check the weather in my area.
Good
by Evan Blackwell on 2014/08/13 00:36
It's always on time with information. Keep up the good work !
