WSB-TV News Review


The WSB-TV/Channel 2 Action News app brings you breaking news and constantly updated major news stories for metro Atlanta and north Georgia. The app also features local weather, traffic, sports and more.

The app has been slightly redesigned with several advancements in video.

You'll find two channels of live streaming video so you can watch our newscasts and/or breaking news coverage as it happens.

Download and get alerted to breaking news from Channel 2 Action News - including traffic and severe weather alerts.

The app includes an interactive radar so you can track storms down to your street. The forecasts are prepared by Severe Weather Team 2 and you can watch the latest forecast updated multiple times per day.

We strive to provide you with the best in local news and info, so check out our app and watch for updates as we make it even better.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Please note: This app features Nielsen’s proprietary measurement software which will allow you to contribute to market research, like Nielsen’s TV Ratings. Please see for more information.

    The app was updated twice yesterday (4/16/16) & neither one fixed the (not) scrolling problem. Keep trying, guys! Please! Up until the newest update, this was a great app. A lifelong Atl resident & WSB viewer (& WSB radio listener - RIP Capt'n Herb!) I was excited to find their app over a year ago. Until recently, the only glitch was that it would occasionally bring up a different video than what was selected. No big deal - it was very easy to read the story or find the video in the VIDEOS section. However, now it is really terrible. In portrait mode, you are unable to scroll through the written story - you can only read what is on the screen. In landscape mode, you can scroll through if you are VERY careful. If you touch the wrong spot to scroll, the side menu takes over half the screen and your only option is to return to HOME via the menu and try again. If video is available, watching seems to work, but it does pull up the wrong story pretty often. The new update also eliminated the separate sections on the HOME page for NATIONAL NEWS, SPORTS and INTERESTING TOPICS. There is now only 1 section for HEADLINES similar to the FOX5 App. WSB used to be my go-to app over FOX5 for this very reason - I enjoyed being to see the frequently updated NATIONAL NEWS stories without switching pages or apps. Now those separate sections aren't even available from the invasive side menu. Please take this app back to the old version! It was so much better! Until it's changed for the better, I'll be using the FOX5 app.

    News is supposed to be news not an advertising platform for rent. This is worse than telemarketing so I am deleting this app because of the insidious Amazon pop up. I can't read a full article because this quiz/add has no method of escaping out of it. This effectively locks up the app. If you are a "news organization" then show me the news. There are enough "sponsored stories/adds that I must stroll past on the way to attempting to read an article spread across multiple pages. Again I say, this is worse than telemarketing.

    Pretty slick app with the ability to watch the newscast live. The only real complaint would be the excessive "alerts" that are pushed. (But that is probably more an issue with the WSBTV Social Media Team). I like to be notified of real "breaking news" but some of what's sent is pretty irrelevant. It would be nice to be able to select "Alert Types". Otherwise, good job to the developers.

    After update it started to work faster, but app looks unattractive for me (redesign didn't help at all). Still a lot of fix to do. After update it started to work faster, but app looks unattractive for me (redesign didn't help at all). Still a lot of fix to do.
