Best News App For Las Vegas
This is by far and away the best news app for Las Vegas and Southern Nevada. The news alerts come fast, and the stories are real news, not slanted one way or another. The I-Team investigations are some of the best news in the region. The only thing keeping it from getting a fifth star from me is the fact that the ads within each story do not flow “smoothly” with the rest of the page as you scroll, and they create a stutter effect on newer iPhones with the higher refresh rate screens. Fox this issue and it’s easily a dove star app.

Photos of criminals wanted by Police can’t be zoomed!
App will get 5 stars once you all your users to pinch & zoom to photos of criminals wanted by law enforcement. It once work on previous app versions but not this current one. Example: You will post an article regarding police needing help locating criminal suspect, but when you try to tap the photo for clearer viewing, nothing happens and the public will not be able to properly spot the person the law enforcement is asking help locating…

Stop the increased volume
Love Chanel 8 News and have been watching for years. However, the increased volume when advertising the station during break is a true disappointment!!! Tribute to Nathan, I’ve put down my phone - now PLEASE put down that volume when you break to advertising the station. I’d be more than happy to give 5 stars after the change. Thank you in advance.

Notification Settings Broken
It’s great that there is a good selection of alerts to turn on or off. Unfortunately “News” seems to be everything. Even though I have “Golden Knights” turned off my phone blows up every time someone scores. This needs to be fixed. 8 News Now is my preferred local news, but if this continues with the Raiders it will be a VERY easy decision to delete the app and use the other networks.

What happened?
As long as you don’t actually click on any of the news articles to read them and you’re satisfied to read the headlines, the app works pretty well. I’ve tried deleting it and reinstalling, I’ve tried it on several different phones, and this is a brand new iPhone, and I still can’t open any articles. Then the app just locks up. I’d say it’s my phone, but it’s several phones and an iPad as well.

Keeps freezing
This app used to be great. Now you can’t even get through 3 news stories before it completely freezes on you. Then you have to close it completely out and go back in. Then after looking at 3 more....same thing. Also using a majority of my data. This is even after turning off the auto video start. The news is good but the app....not so much. I’ve been dealing with this over a month now (iPhone). I’m done with this app.

No surprise. Way too liberal
First of all, there are not that many news stories. For example, we get a Golden Knights article every other game. Then they will give breaking news headline with no story attached, just a line that says, “check back later” and never gets updated. I’m not very political, but enough with all of the anti Trump stories, and they still have pro Obama’s stories. Give it a rest. I am deleting this miserable app immediately.

Hockey scores are not breaking news
I have the app set to notify me only of breaking news & traffic, but I still get notified every time the Golden Knights or their opponents score. Hockey game scores are not breaking news. All they do is clutter up the notifications area for real breaking incidents.

Just awful
My app is updated yet the last 2 days when I open it, it tells me to update app with an ad the download the KLAS app. Ya can’t update something that’s already updated! Annoying & can’t read the news, etc. Useless app with useless content…only shows the same stories repeatedly. Deleting & going elsewhere.

This App. complements my TV watching of 8 News - love the morning show, 5:00 news, Politics Now (REALLY like this show!). Just wish Brian Loftus could be cloned 😀. 4 stars instead of 5 ‘cause I wish the traffic app./information was better.

iPad Ver horrible
The iPad version is horrible,,, does no one at news 8 use this on a iPad.,,,, the main app view is distorted in landscape mode and cant see the stories to click on,,, and the stories you do click on take you to a endless loop of video that you cant stop unless you close the app and restart.

Notifications alerts type mean nothing
Being able to customize alerts would be a great thing....but no... they do nothing... I don’t want political or sports alerts but every time there is a Vegas knights game happening, boom alert central...easily 5-10 alerts per game...I turned OFF vegas knights alerts, but still get them

New update doesn’t work.
When I open the app I get a message saying to update my app. I go to the App Store where it says I’ve updated to the new app, so I open it and get the message to update my app. A perpetual loop with no news.

To update or not to update
It tells you to update to has the app. The link beings us here, where it says the app is in fact, updated. Bottomline: the app is bricked at the moment, avoid it!

The channel 8 does not tell the truth on its stories. Plus, they the same like abc, nbc, cnn, CNBC. The special investigation is only certain topics. They do not cover the true crime or report all the crime in the valley.
