There is at least one story a day that causes the app to crash. It is the one with the 10/11 symbol on it. I just came in to rate this app and realized I had already given it one star for crashing with the story described above. Wish you could give less than one star. That may sound a little harsh but now after a year and half I came back in to review and see I already left a review for the same reasons plus it is the only app I have that has a commercial or advertisement before you can enter the the app. With that being said it is the only real option for Lincoln news. It’s hard to believe but they just get worse from here. I have raised it up from one star to three. I mean I do use this for the news and weather. A few small tweaks it could be superior
I went into my phone settings and this app takes more internet usage than any other app including Facebook and Facetime. It’s constantly going apparently. It also crashes when you pull it up and click on a story. Not every time, but several times s week. It just goes away completely and goes to your home screen. You have to start all over trying to find out where you were before to view what you were trying to view in the first place.
Don’t know what the folks behind the scenes did to the app, ever since the most recent update the app will not open. I can let the app sit till my screen auto locks and it never opens. Definitely time to roll back the update and hire come quality control folks to test these updates before loading the up for folks to download.
This latest release continues to take apps to a new low and is worthy of negative ratings. Now, the make ads look like news articles with the same size and shape if their news article. They even go as low as put their 10/11 logo on these ads. The WatchIOS interface continues to be useless and only shows Lincoln weather. I guess they want this plugin to say “we have a watch app” as crappy as it is.
My husband and I enjoyed this news and weather channel...until the SAME ANNOYING AD PLAYED....over an over and over and over and..... It’s almost a repetitive thing to drive a person to insanity! Do the people at Gray even pay attention to what’s going on in the app? We have started watching other channels just to escape the same Education quest ad...over and over and over and over and.....
Like all websites 1011 relies on unwanted and infectious spam to provide their content. 99 percent of the supposed stories that are not news but spam. 1011 editors need to do a better job of vetting who they allow to advertise on their site. Also, it is sad that there are at 3 or 4 stories a day with grammatical errors. I thought to be a reporter, you had to have a college degree.
I have tried restarting my iPad, as well as deleting and reinstalling the app. I did NOT allow notifications nor did I allow it to know my location (I very rarely do on ANY app). I wonder if that is the reason? 🤷🏻♀️ The app works on my iPhone, which is newer.
After using this app for years, I keep getting a live feed not available. Nothing I do or change fixes this. Have used this app ‘out of area’ for years. Now I must use a different news source app for my hometown news.
Those who are responsible for the content of app should be made to go back to third grade. The spelling and grammar is at the level of grade school students. They use improper words or the wrong version of a word ( example: balling instead of bawling to describe someone crying). This is an embarrassment as a news and information service.
KOLN News clearly falls off the cliff Left. For a small “small town” news source, one would think that a bit more balance would be seen. Nope! Zero two sided reporting. The brass at KOLN must be terrified of retaliation of the extreme Left for any even handed news reporting.
I’ve had the app for quite a while and felt compelled to write a review in the hopes all the good it provides for local news particularly the notifications of local breaking news with the 1-2 liners even on a lock screen. Unlike the large 24-hr news stations where it seems EVERY story is “Breaking News”, the 10/11 app folks do a great job of being selective so we the user aren’t bombarded and remain alerted as opposed to numbed. On the other hand there are so many links by “ sponsors” and no evidence there is any journalistic approach or basic vetting to ensure the same commitment to quality news with quality reporting, sound sources and verifiable to the same extent that the local 10/11 News team does. I realize the sponsors are paying and essentially making the app possible, however seems that every time I open the app every page has multiple sponsored links with headlines that appear to be news yet many are filled with falsehoods, no basis in mainstream, fall into a category of writing that is deceptive, misleading and perpetuates falsehood. In this day and age it ALL THE MORE important to remain steadfast in the commitment to Truth and honor the the sacred role & responsibility the Press has in our Democracy. When on the air we hear all the time “this program is sponsored by...” and we then expect to see a product commercial for that particular sponsor. The electronic wireless has launched us into so many new capabilities that are frankly awe-inspiring but with it has also come a wave of attacks on the trust between the People & the Press, leading to speculation, unable to distinguish that which is true from what is deceptive. Also if you’re going to have a story, then there should be more than a paragraph that displays so one doesn’t have to click “next page” so frequently. Also when there is a Breaking story and an alert notification is sent, if it’s so recent and nothing has otherwise been written or recorded then don’t let the link from the notification proceed. Those of us who see all the alerts know you only put out important relevant news and understand it’s too early to know more. For example a convenient store robbery at say 3:30a, you notify us, and have said, “more info at 5a morning news program, etc” If the local news alerts from the app were not so selective, making it a very useful and helpful alert, I would have rated the app a 2. And that is because of the sheer number of deceptive sponsor “headlines”. I expect the ‘most-trusted news team’ to fervently protect that earned title from anyone or any sponsor paying to call it into question. Thank you.
Every time I open the app I can hit the “x” and it takes me to the home page. Once I click on the “NEWS” tab it crashes. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app then it will work for a day. Then starts doing the same thing.
This app is well organized! And when winter school closings are happening, I know I can depend on this app in finding out in the fastest way if my school is closed. Also beware that current news and happenings are constantly updated! Great app!
First it changed to a news app from weather which was fine. Weather was still first now with this new "update" it's hard to even get weather for the area you live in and you can't click individual future days to see the details. Completely ruined a decent app.
Videos take for ever to start and then are very choppy (even on wi-fi). Hard to find the app when searching. Runs pretty slow. I love 10/11 and it's previous app better but this looks like it has the potential to be great, please speed it up. Please fix :(
So the old app gave a place to click to download the new app but doesn't take you to the new app. Here's a tip. Add an update like every other app. Slower to download content. This is junk compared to the old one, which wasn't the greatest.
