New TV 11 App Format
I’ve loved TV 11 News. It’s always been the first news app that I read each morning; however, the new format, with videos for each article, is no longer my go-to news app. I take the news very seriously, and I feel like your new format detracts from that. Whether just perceived or not, your news articles seem to be less in depth. I can no longer take in the most important news at a glance; whereas previously I could readily see the scope, importance, and perspective of the day’s news. Please bring back the old format! Or perhaps consider utilizing 2 apps to please both types of readers.

Site’s format is too busy. I’d like to be able to scroll and choose what I’d like to read first etc. but pics change into video which is very annoying to me . Maybe I’m just navigating the site incorrectly. Thanks for asking........ that being said, I absolutely watch you on tv as opposed to the other stations. I am usually pleased with the way you usually do not sensational events that warrant less attention as it may. Thank you.

Crazy Ads
I’ve used this app a long time but lately there are ads all over each page that make it so you have to be very careful scrolling because you’ll accidentally tap on them and it will take you directly to at App Store to try to make you download some game. This just happened to me twice while I was attempting to read one story. Guess I’ll have to find a different news app. I get that ads pay the bills but I don’t want to deal with aggressive ads that can’t be avoided and having to cancel downloading roblox or some other game that I don’t want constantly just to see what the weather is going to be like this week.

Stop Automatic video play
I love ABC11!!! However, it is annoying having the videos automatically when you click on an article. Although I like WTVD’s news, the automatic video commercials will cause me to check other news sites when I am in a quiet place or in a virtual meeting. Please stop automatic play videos including commercials. Let us choose to click on it if we desire to watch the video.

Fair Play
Some months ago I used to watch ABC11 news every night and every morning. That was before I realized how radically liberal the folks running the station had become. Now you don’t care what the public thinks about issues. You don’t want to report the news, you want to control the news. Thankfully there is The National Desk. Sinclair Broadcasting has a real winner because what they present is unbiased news. They give the viewer the untainted facts with no indoctrination. If you want the public to listen what you have to say, then you need to listen what we have to say. It is only fair play

I like the old version better
I rated this version low because it's harder for me to see all of the news stories. I try to read an article and it seems to constantly move either direction to another article. This app has started playing the news article video even though I did not push play for some reason and it did not do that before so hopefully they will fix that.

I understand that the majority of the viewers are in the northern area. But I travel I-95 South every day. It is never covered in the morning reports. So many times I have been stuck there and late for work. That’s not on you but it would be nice to have at least a peek at that direction. With all of the construction it’s inevitable to run into a wreck and being able to reroute would be great! Thanks!!!

Decent Journalism, but app is plagued with bugs.
ABC11 is one of the few alternatives to the ...less than stellar... other major news outlet in the area. The journalism is decent, the stories are interesting and timely. However the app regularly crashes and appears to drain the battery very rapidly. To the tune of 20% in ten minutes it seems. There’s also a weird transposition of images between the headlines, and scrolling the main news feed is often (for lack of better words) jagged and shaky. Hopefully, it’ll get worked out. I’ve always preferred WTVD to WRAL - even when I was watching them on television.

Before this latest update I would have given it 5 stars, no question, but the weather section is so awful now. When you want to see the daily forecast the top and bottom are not visible so you aren’t really sure what’s going on. The look and layout need some work, this is my weather go to and right now I have to go elsewhere to see what I need to know. Still love WTVD!

ABC11 is extremely one sided when reporting on important news issues. If there is something that will affect the liberal left in a negative way your agency does not report on it or if you do it’s very little coverage. However on the hand if the News being reported is about conservatives you make sure it is covered from start to finish. This is a great disservice to your views because they’re only getting one side of the story. This is not true journalism. Report all of the news all the time and let your viewers be the judge. You report we decide.

Easy to use, sometimes freezes and closes out
This app is a great way for me to stay up to date on the local news, but it does have a way of freezing up and quitting on me in the middle of reading an article, which is annoying. Also, a bunch of the articles have typos, grammatical errors, and lack sufficient info. Where is the editor for these articles? I like getting the alerts when there is something new reported.

Stop the auto play videos
I like the app because the content is up to date. However the option to NOT auto play videos either doesn’t work it the fact than Disney owns ABC overrides this option and forces Lion King trailers to play randomly while reading articles. Even if there isn’t an ad for the movie within the article, it autoplays at random times and it’s annoying. While I’m excited to see the movie, I don’t need the trailer playing on its own every time I try to read a news story!

Frequent crashes
For no reason while reading an article and not touching the screen the app goes either black or back to the iPhone home screen. Even trying to send feedback the waiting to load icon stays on. This app used to be a 5 rating now it is a zero for the frustrating operation

New iOS upgrade
I used this app whenever the news was not on tv. Now with the new upgrade I'm hardly able to access anything but the weather and traffic. News in its many forms is important to everybody. When these upgrades are made you are shutting a lot of people out. Many people are getting frustrated because what was there and very reliable is no longer of use. I myself will find another app for my local news because it's no longer an update it's a restriction. Sorry if you think this is actually better.

Y’all need to install local news calendar events, sport of all types, good Christian basic information. People I talk with are tried of crime and shooting and young people killed. It is very stressful to listen too it. But, I have lived in the area for 70 years,Iknow Durham and Raleigh well. The area has changed a lot. But, some free advice start showing and telling good clean information. The people will come back to ABC11 News. Thanks for listening, try this. 😃👍🏻. Uncle Johnny

Very annoying
To whom it may concern, and to those who will probably never read this. Let it be know that it’s very annoying the way you have it set up to leave a blank spot in the middle of a story and then pops up a advertisement no where near where you were reading. Cmon ppl enough is enough

Great News App
ABC11 keeps me in the know of what’s happening in my city and county. I really enjoy the breaking news and knowing what the weather is going to be during the day & next days... As with any news outlet I pray that ABC11 will only report the true news and not allow their or the reporters’ spin or prejudices to interfere with the true facts.

Searching your site
There appears to be no way for me to search for news that interests me. Why is there no search bar? Often I get a notification from your site, only to go try and find it later, it’s impossible. Strange website design...not user friendly. Also, the split screen format is not reader friendly, to compartmentalized. Where is the comment section for each article? How can I see how my other citizens are reacting to each article..You should look into completely redesigning your site.

The Least Professional News App I have Ever Seen!
The grammar is atrocious and I can’t see certain stories without the app skipping over the article. It played commercials over the audio of news stories and the spelling and punctuation is shameful. The app quits 5 or 6 times every hour and many stories leave out crucial information and apparently is a bit biased. I’ve had this app for years but will not tolerate it anymore. Deleted till they become a professional, unbiased news app. Please delete.

Worthless news station
You aren’t alone, or primarily at fault. This is happening everywhere. You are Woke, you’ll lose, your stories are garbage. Trump is still the scariest thing but you constantly have stories on it. You demonize law enforcement but if the enforce things like masks, well they are heroes. Everyone is racist and there are “white nationalists” everywhere yet no one ever sees them. Get a grip. Tell the truth, let people digest it on their own. Oh, one last thing. COVID is DEAD. Stop talking about it. Cheers!

I love this app. ABC keeps me in the know. Especially great at letting me keep up with the travel since I have to drive from Durham NC to Mebane NC so keeping up with the traffic is a must. Tracking Irma has also been very helpful for family members. Keep up the excellent work ABC team!!!!!

Best of the local worst
Poor reporting, distinct lack of proper editing, spewing Democratic daily talking points without ANY attempt at balance or actual research (and this comes from a registered Dem), app plagued with tech issues. Just to list the worst problems. Absolutely annoying when you receive a notification for a news story and 50%+ the time it is nowhere to be found in the app when you click on the notification. And stop asking me to review your app every time I am reading a story. Ugh!

My Opinion
Please go back to format similar to WRAL app where you can see title of news item. I hate having to scroll through all the news to get to what I want to read. Also do not allow the audio for a news item to be automatic; If I want audio, I can manage myself rather than have it blast out unexpectedly. This is particularly annoying as I peruse the news during early morning while family is sleeping.

Do not like your app
Your app needs to be Re-worked. Having the windows for each article so large on the left makes it difficult to search for specific news by having to swipe down through all the windows. Why not make them smaller so one can glance through them quickly to find what I want to read. Then have it open full screen when touched instead of having an article shown on the right all the time. Not used friendly!

Weather info lacking
Besides being overall minimalist as far as information goes ... there are too many weird ads and the weather information has no description ... just highs and lows with some precipitation numbers mixed in. WRAL app is better but they are so politically motivated i had to delete that app. Hopefully ABC11 will get better with some more time

Swing and a miss.
Can never see the flash survey done almost every evening. No way to contact ABC11 in this app or it’s so buried I can’t find it. Many breaking news vids are displayed in multiple sections. Overall the local NBC app is much better but I really dislike NBC news.

Horrible new version of the app
This new app is horrible. I used to be able to quickly view all the stories and select which one I want to view but now I have to go through all the stories to get to one I want to read. Also no traffic maps anymore thanks a lot for that. I will probably delete this useless app now. Change is not always for the better and this app is a perfect example of that.

iPhone X optimization isn’t perfect
A+ for being quick to support the iPhone X. With that being said, there’s a problem with the app that could easily be resolved in QA if the app was tested on a physical iPhone X before being submitted to the App Store: There’s some weird text overlay in the “notches”. The best way I can describe is that there’s just a jumble of letters that I find very distracting.
