Videos annoying
While Denver 7 News app will remain my go-to app for local news because their written reports are really well done and in-depth - I get so annoyed with the videos as they have so many ads to wait through before the story, and sometimes rather loud, or inappropriate given the story topic that I often don’t even get to the story. Then if I try to listen to it again it often doesn’t play the original one. If I just stick to the written reporting I’m happy with this app.

Soooooo many LOUD ADS!!!
The app will literally play MAYBE 30 seconds of news and then several minutes of VERY LOUD ADS!!! The ads make it not worth watching. There are too many, they are repetitive, they are the same ads that have been playing for (literally) years and they are EXTREMELY LOUD!!! You have to keep adjusting your volume down and up due to the extreme difference in volume between the ads and the news. And speaking of the news, it's very repetitive, also. You can get ALL the news stories of the day in just a few collective minutes (in between all the ads). And most of the reporting is on the same thing and same part of town EVERY SINGLE DAY. (Hey Denver7, I understand there is homelessness in Denver county but did you know there are other parts to the Denver metro... I mean besides Aurora, and there are other things to report on?!?!?!) Sadly, I will be searching for a different news source.

How much money do you need to make an app without ads? I don’t want ads. I don’t need the distraction. I already have too many ads shoved down my throat everywhere I go. Please focus on delivering what I came here for, news! Thank you for listening. P.S. In case you need an exemple of a pleasant News app, absolutely ad-free, seek for Deutsche Welle or DW Made for Minds. Easy for them, they run on German government money. As for us here, please explore alternatives to finance your business.

Favorite local station
I love being able to get local news on the go, even when I’m away from home. My only pet peeve is having to take/opt out of a survey to read entire article, or getting so many ads.

One of the most annoying bugs I run into is that on iPhone if I click to an article from a notification, none of the options at the top of the article are available, such as sharing the article. Maybe there’s a reason these can’t appear, since it seems to open a new drawer or page, unlike when navigating from inside the app. But regardless, it’s a pain. I can’t think of the other bugs I’ve run into at the moment.

Old News
Great app if you like old news and stale weather forecasts. Poorly written news items, often with obvious errors. This site is updated so very slowly it is akin to false advertising that they can even call it a “news” app. No method to try for an update and this is no surprise since I’m sure there’d be nothing to load. No easy way to return to top after revisiting app. Some pages have no way out at all and you have to close the app to return to your preferred page. App is often hit with ridiculous and misleading ads. I hope Denver7 isn’t paying their IT team a ton of money. Something tells me they’re not.

Hootie and the blowfish news
If you’re sick of reading about current events and hot topics please download this app. The advertisements are larger then the articles. The articles are just about as thrilling as that one time I bought a goldfish. Literally don’t bother!!! With everything going on in the world this news teams grand idea of a good article is one explaining how a one hit wonder 90’s band may visit Denver. If that isn’t lame enough they frequently launch “investigation” articles that are often void of facts and only tell one side of the story. -Denver 7 investigates how a bicycle was hit by an evil lady driving slow moving car in a Macy’s parking lot- total crap

Fix your App Denver 7!!!!
This app hasn’t worked for me since a recent update requiring a sign in. Since I don’t have an account, I try to create one in app but each time after entering email and password I get a blank error with a “Dismiss” button and then the app crashes. I’ve tried deleting the app and redownloading it several times over the past few months but still doesn’t work. Denver 7 used to be my go to news app but now I use 9NEWS just because it works. Seems like a pretty critical bug that should have been fixed or rolled back a while ago. Please fix it so I can use your app again!!!

Preferred over 9 news app
I prefer the 7 news app over the 9 news app because the 9 app needs WiFi to work, and the “content” of 9 news seems to be nothing more than ads! I also like the push notifications from 7 news over the ones from 9. The weather and traffic ones especially.

My new fav news app
Easy to see the headlines, and the story text is large enough to read or can be enlarged. I love that it is not dominated by pictures and videos, the latter of which I rarely use. Would be nice to be able to enlarge the pictures though, especially if the story involves a missing person, suspect or vehicle at large photo or drawing.

Great Information
Really enjoy checking this every morning while drinking my coffee. It hits all the important news and I don’t need to listen to the news or read a paper. If I want to know more details, I can always find another source and this rarely happens. I do watch the channel 7 news in the evening.

Favorite local new app
Denver news has a well laid out app with mostly up to date news. News content has been very good. I would like to see more NOCO news and weather. We don’t all live in Denver. Fort Collins and Loveland have a fairly large base that seems to get bypassed by the weather team.

16-May-19 - no version available to iOS 9?
Version history goes back to 2013, but apparently no support for earlier versions of iOS. Having downloaded the current version in iOS 12, I find that App Store will not allow earlier versions to download on either iOS 6 or iOS 9. (Downloading of earlier versions is common practice in App Store since iOS 6) The question is: Have the previous versions been removed from the App Store?

No cable subscription needed
This is totally free. We don’t have cable and stream TV. So we don’t have to give any “provider” info. But is a really good app on Roku as well as on our phones. Very user friendly. Have not experienced any problems what so ever.

Not 1, not 2, but 3 commercials?
You send me an alert that Gov. Polis is about to give an important update on the COVID-19 response in Colorado, and as soon he starts to speak, you inject 3 lengthy commercials, loosing all of his comments in the process? You have to be KIDDING me! Deleting your App from Apple TV as well. May start watching a different channel as well. Most of your alerts are fluff at best, I’m confident that I won’t be missing anything.

Your App
This new version of your app is CRAP!!!!! I use an Apple IPhone. In the past when I could not get back to a previous screen, I would simply delete your app and reload the app from the App Store and all was okay. Today, I could not do this! Your App does not show in my list of apps. I must go back to the App Store. When I select your app it takes me DIRECTLY into your app. I WILL NO LONGER BE USING YOUR APP OR YOU TV CHANNEL! TOO BAD!

Sports overload
App is decent. Wish there was a way to disable all sports notification. The in-app notification settings do not seem to work. Have zero interest in sports, so the nonstop Nuggets notifications (for instance) get a little annoying.

Same story over and over
9 news app is less functional, but 9 news seems to have better content. Whenever something is going on, I’ll open 7 news to find nothing. Usually 9 will already have a story published. It’s all biased motivated reporting, but I’m tired of seeing the same story over and over in 7 News. Nobody cares about COVID anymore.

Useless Garbage
This app rarely works properly. Sometimes the sound doesn’t work, ads repeat themselves on a loop and often don’t go back to the live stream, the ads are so overwhelming and last longer than the actual live stream. it is absolutely pointless to even try and use this app. Side note: The mobile site is no better.

Awful update!
The Denver 7 News app worked great until it was ‘upgraded’ to Denver 7+, as it DOES NOT function on an Apple iPad anymore. If I want any Denver 7 news, I have to go directly to the website and either read or watch the news stories from that source. If I could give this app a zero, I would.

Audio volume issues
On the Apple TV app the anchors are muffled and inaudible. The commercials are perfectly clear. Unfortunately the streaming part of the live news feed is unusable due to this.

Choose another channel.
This station is great if you enjoy being told opinions passed off as facts. They also no longer include people’s citizenship status when reporting on crime, which is calculated to hide from the American people the impacts these people have on our communities because they would rather go off feelings and virtue signaling that cold hard facts.

Why do you have to fill your app with a barrage of ads? Horrible. I had this irritating app for all of a week and couldn’t stand it anymore. It’s really tacky to have a non-dismissible add on anything. Are you guys really that that desperate?
