Superior performance!!!
The best news app anyone, blind or sighted, could have as a residential clevelander. The news when you want, whereever you are. Even though it's primarily Northeast Ohio, Anyone can download and see national and local stories. Well, local to the Cleveland area. I love the app. The push notifications really helps us stay informed, and we get the information when we need it. There are a few unlabeled buttons, but I as a Voiceover user can prity much figure it out. Thanks. And Keep doin ' up the updates.

Your app is currently crap. I almost exclusively watch kyc at home and this app used to be good. It had easy to navigate categories for local, world, National, weather, radar, etc. Now I get an alert or headline that pushes to the phone and the app doesn’t link to the headline and brings up the useless kyc app home page. The homepage is some kind of infinite scroll so good luck trying to find something. I only have the app because kyc pushes decent headlines. Dial this app interface back a couple years please. I really do not understand why web developers and designers have to “modernize” a site so often. You had something that was effective. Stop trying to one up the person next to you and keep the site practical. Concentrate on app speeds or faster info push. If you have that then paint the background a different color or jump on the “dark mode” band wagon but please give the app more direct navigation.

I understand ads are needed to pay for quality work. And I don’t mind them before the video starts. But to show another ad just because you want to expand the video to full screen? And if you expand to soon you get taken to a video game page!? You then go back and start the whole process over again! Has this been brought up before?

Bogus Ads
News stories on WKYC 3 News are “littered” with come-on teaser ads which seem antithetical not only to the longstanding traditions of this station, but more so to their current slogan/mantra “what matters.” I realize that Tegna is a corporation in the business of making money, however it seems that their revenue stream from ads like “America’s number one gut doctor begs you to throw out this vegetable” and “casinos don’t want you to do this, but can’t stop you” are the fodder of investigative journalism that Channel 3 used to cover. Their app is very repetitive and only shows brief snippets of stories that they carry on their broadcasts. The stories tend to be old and aren’t updated.

No problems here; knock on wood
I’ve not had any problems with this app thus far. As I have MS/Multiple Sclerois. I often fall asleep during the news, etc but I stay up to date with the use of this app. I live in Lake county whereas my family live in Cuyahoga and Lorain counties so this helps me quite a bit with local, worldwide and news specific to where my adult children live! For my purpose I rated it “5” stars.

Home town ALWAYS!
I moved away and still hope to return. I have watched this News Station nearly all my 55 years in CLE! I hope to see the local news each night. Sometimes it is not on especially on the weekends. I miss you all so much!! Keep on sending out this Station on the app. I love to keep up with my home town. Ever since I began at BWU in 1962! Eileen Spicer

Awesome News 3 (WKYC)
My husband & I enjoy watching WKYC for many reasons. All the on air personalities are the best! They present the news, sports, weather, health & other information in a professional manner. One of the qualities that I enjoy most is the true caring & mutual respect they have for one another. Indeed, they seem like my “friends”.

Miss Betsy
Hello, I grew up in Cleveland. I never missed channel 3 if I could. I moved last year and I will say, there is no one that comes close to Betsy King. I will miss her so much. I still have a ton of family around there so I will know if she ever left. Cleveland is very lucky with her there . Good luck Tammy M

3 news next, but not here (on the app)
EDITED: This app has a live stream function which is often nonfunctional. The live stream is unavailable when a newscast is delayed, and is oftentimes inaccessible for regularly scheduled broadcasts. Often news live stream unavailable when the president has one of his covid 19 briefings is on. If a live stream is available, it is almost difficult to access, almost as though TEGNA, WKYC’s parent company, doesn’t want you to watch a live stream of their newscasts. Additionally, live stream pixelates and live audio stutters making newscast unwatchable and unlistenable.

Poor Videos
The app states to watch videos, but when I click play, the video starts then immediately is interrupted, a commercial starts, then the video I want to watch starts and plays for only a few seconds before stopping. It rarely shows anything meaningful, and then goes back to playing the commercial again.

What happened?!
This used to be a wonderful app; however, it is now littered with numerous obnoxious ads. Why such a huge change?! Navigating and utilizing this app is now an unpleasant & frustrating experience. For this reason, we’ll be relying on another local network news app for news, information, updates and alerts.

Live stream
Understand you can’t live stream during 5am hour. Would be nice if you could. Or perhaps maybe a behind the scenes live stream during that hour could be interesting. Other than that WKYC is doing an outstanding job in their morning program.

A suggestion
I really like to read news from Cleveland, but I do wish I could stop receiving alerts about high school sports or any of the professional sports teams. I have the alerts turned off for sports and I still get notifications about games or scores. I really don’t care about this and wish that this wasn’t sent as a notification as “top stories”.

New App format clunky
I don’t usually mind updates and the changes that come with progress, but this new app is clunky and very hard to navigate. Scrolling down to the next article means scrolling past 3 ads every time! Also after reading a report or watching a video clicking the back arrow sends me all the way back to the top instead of where I left off meaning I have to keep scrolling down and clicking.

App crashes on live video.
Aside from the app not being very refined and clumsy, the main issue is the crash associated with live video feeds. With the corona virus global paralysis we are now faced with a reliance on the news networks to keep us informed and educated. When the live feeds are available and you activate the sound (extremely important) the app crashes every single time. It happens to my phone along with others, so clearly there is a bug to be fixed. So please fix this very important issue.

Yes! Good reading each morning.
We were one of the “lucky” customers of Direct TV who have now chosen to eliminate Channel 3. It has been over a week! I enjoy watching The Today Show each morning. The WKYC app is a wonderful fill-in. Thanks!

Akron a afterthought
You covered Akron news is terrible . When you post something it will stay up there for a week - 2 weeks depending if you get something big to replace it. Akron is more like a after thought to Cleveland news 1st . Just like Cleveland there are things happening in the Akron/Canton areas daily

Missing Page
I have always preferred WKYC for their school closing listing, but for this entire winter season this page has had an error saying, "This page is missing, but we have our best investigative reporters on it." I'm hoping these investigative reporters get to the bottom of this mystery and the page gets restored soon!

Missing NEO
Recently moved to Texas from Cuyahoga Falls, this app allows me to keep up to date with everything that I consider important co ncerning my home state. This app makes me feel like I’m still part of NEO . This is a great tool that would not have been available not so many years ago. Great job. Very much appreciated. Warren Vaughn, Temple Texas

So bad
Constantly showing old stories from weeks ago. The reporting is beyond ridiculous, half stories, that should have never started. This is a shame because Cleveland use to have great reporting and reporters, now it’s all about halos on the news person face, reporting nothing much, but boy doesn’t he or she look great. Don’t read if you want in-depth coverage. Like fox just entertainment not news worthy.

Without question, WKYC offers the most accurate forecast of all local stations. Furthermore, it is done in a scientific, calm manner. Other local stations go for high drama and fear and lose accuracy in the process.

Let me pay for no ads
The app is fine. I use it for local news alerts and weather. But the ads on here are large, poorly integrated into the experience, and long. A 30 second ad to watch a 30 second clip. Come one. Let me give you money to make this garage go away.

Awful, flippy, fiddly interface
The app has so munch ad content it won’t sit still, constantly jerking up and down. Navigation is unclear with a mishmash of video and text and repeated elements. Every Tegna station has the same app, so it’s a kit, but the WKYC version looks terrible. KING in Seattle uses the same tool and it looks great. Time to delete this again.

Not good
Hate the new app. I used the other app daily to track my long commute to work. I loved the real time maps and access to traffic cams so I knew what I was in for during my drive. Now it just links you to Waze! I already tried Waze and hated it! Why do I need in two places. Please put back the original traffic maps!!! Also, too many ads and not as easy as they say to navigate to what you want.

Great alternative to cable
However they need to fix the huge volume difference between the program and the commercials. I can’t watch this without having to keep the remote handy and quickly mute the commercials since they are so much louder than the program.
