Best local news.
App works great on my iPhone. Advertising can be a bit much. The fake and moving X out spots are very annoying. Just a cheap trick to get you confused and stay a bit longer on their advertisement. Too many fluff stories that are not really news. Seems like you are supporting friends businesses. Stick to the real news please. I don't care to see story after story about see through canoes. Thank you for your time.

The Fox 13 News
I watch Fox channels news where ever I happen to be. I have been very disappointed in this one in Tampa as it should be called Charleys World and Weather Channel. I get more news on the other channels here than I get watching this channel. We have so many cooking channels watching him go to all these places would no be so bad if it wasnt the main body of the show. Way too much time wasted. So, just wanted to let you know how I feel, and I know a few others who have also stopped watching your news for the same reasons. We want the news from Tampa areas all of it, not just the bad stuff, but how about some good news. Yes,I know you bring in the animals that need homes, but there just has to be more. Maybe you should see what other Fox channels around the states do it. We thought you were the best source for news in Arizona, Florida, Nevada, Hawaii, New York and more that I don't remember. Since I like to watch the news I have now switched to. 10+ Tampa Bay as they actually give you the news reports. We have noticed that you are no longer a Conservative Channel so I just wanted to say good bye and tell you why you are losing some people.

Attitude Attitude Attitude
Whoever is in-charge at FOX13 is the guy/gal I wanna work for. You can tell by the fun everyone seems to have on set. Even the on-sight reporters portray great attitudes and professionalism. If you enjoy your job and the people you work with life is good. Your family life is affected with a positive reinforcement because you don’t come home hating you job/boss. You come home smiling. You get up for work and are excited to get back to doing what you do everyday. A nice position to be in. So congratulations on having good leadership and great people.

Ads to annoy you to death
Fox13 is my go-to for local news in the Tampa Bay Area. I would give this one star only, were it not for the quality reporting and coverage. The problem, and it’s one that is driving me away - despite the great content, is the way they needle you with the ads. I realize that advertising is necessary for unpaid content, but the way it is done here is to annoy you to death! The ad pops up and the “close” X is at one corner of the screen. You go to close it and it pops over to an alternate corner of the screen. It’s as though the ads were designed to do nothing more than to discourage you from using the otherwise good app.

Love Love Love Fox 13 News
The Fox News team is always on top of the current news and human interest stories. We have always watched Fox News. The occasional times we have turned to other news, they just don’t seem like family or as comfortable to us. The Fox team genuinely have fun and enjoy each other as well as caring about their viewers. Although I do have to admit I like watching Dennis Phillips once in awhile from another channel. I like his suspenders and enjoy his weather forcasting. Fox 13 weather is our very favorite with Paul and Dave and is number 1 in our house. We watch Fox 13 news more hours daily than any other TV program. We love Russell, Charlie and the whole Fox 13 family. Thank you for coming into our home every day. We are loyal fans for life. The Quick Family

Fox 13 News
I really love your News & Weather on my iphone. I do see though that sometimes the app is not as updated on the weekends. Seems to be a bit repetitive. The staff is so incredibly awesome. They all seem like a very close family. Thank you Fox 13 News for all you do! You truly are appreciated and very grateful for all the professional and hard work you all do together as “ONE” 😊👍

Great and very informative and up to date information! Make you aware of anything that it happening at the moment wether the news is currently on or not and continues to update you on everything when they aren’t live and on tv. The Fox 13 SkyTower app is another great app to stay informed about the weather here and when there’s lightning near or anything that could be any type of danger!

Best news, weather ,and sports .
I have been watching channel 13 for over 57 years. Remember watching 13 with my grandma Nana when I was just a lad. I live in Citrus Co. and always check in for news, weather,and sports. I can always count on 13 to cover the news up here in Homosassa. The application is great ,and also the SkyTower Radar application. Easy and user friendly on both application.

20 straight minutes of ads.
I tried to watch the Live broadcast. I counted 12 Toyota of Wesley Chapel commercials (some of them back to back), 4 Winters and Yonker commercials and various restaurant ads (Bon Appetit stands out the most). I waited and waited and waited and waited watching ad after ad bouncing back and forth between the “we’ll be right back” screen and finally couldn’t take any more. I fully understand that free content needs to be paid for somehow, but this was downright obnoxious. My husband and I just sat in amazement. This has got to be some sort of record so at least the folks at Fox 13 have that going for them.

Ben Dominech, he is outstanding on this program. He is so calming on any subject. His delivery is always spot on. His voice is such that it calls you to listen. He is so intelligent You want to listen to each and every single word he says. Please consider him for the permanent position in this space. He is so level headed. Thank you Penny Seibert

Not synced with push notifications
Will get push notifications about important local headlines but when you tap into it, more often than not you are not taken to the headline you just got pushed. You get taken to the home page which doesn’t even have the news just pushed. “Live coverage” is often hours behind. Today for example it is giving me coverage that is 3 hours behind, when the governor is making important COVID-19 announcements, the apps home page is not listing them, or giving the actual live broadcast. Incredibly frustrating.

Since TV Began
I was born after radio and before TV. 13 was our first station, therefore pretty much became our favorite. We love the news programs, especially the morning news. I love the people (newscasters), weather people, personal interest, all of them. We even converted when we became FOX. Our station, I believe, was responsible for raising the "class" of the FOX network.

Weather needs to be updated more often
Living in Florida and dealing with our ever changing weather os something we misdeal with. It os 7am and I just opened the app to see this morning’s weather. All I see is last night’s forecast. This needs to be updated more often through the day. I am talking about the video forecast.

Outstanding App
I hate most news apps, because most do not allow you to “scroll “ through the articles. They make you click on an article,read, then click back to the home page. This app allows the user to scroll from article to article. Great Job to the developers of this app!

Flipping pictures to a stupid raffle!
The advertising is worse than the broadcast advertising. I’ve been avoiding this site and using other sites. I find Paul very condescending. He’ll never have the IQ of most of the 13 audience and he’ll never be a Roy or anybody else. Send him back to the nor’easter country, maybe they can relate. The AM team is awesome, as well as most of the news team. Weather group has challenges.

Full featured and works great !
Have used this app and it’s matching weather app for a few years without any problems . I like how it shows a number of news stories at once, requiring only one click to start reading, unlike the other TV station apps for our area. Only weakness I noted is once in awhile the app is slightly behind on recent news.

The entire news/weather teams of FOX13 are outstanding! No matter what the news item, they ALWAYS give it without slanting or injecting their personal views/feelings. They DO care about their viewing audience as people, not just rating numbers. The fellowship and true caring between team members is obvious. Keep up the good work and God bless.

Pop up Ads
I would easily given 5 stars plus except for the ANNOYING POP UP ADS with sound!!! The ads ate annoying enough, but the ones with music or sound are RUDE!!!! I had one go off in a meeting when I was just checking the news and then boom, with no warning an ad went off. I understand the revenue ads bring in, but when it interrupts the user of the app that’s when the ads become more important to Fox13 than the user!!! Fox 13 had a great news app until it was ruined by greedy advertisers pop up ads with sound, plus you have to wait for an option to X out of the ad!!! I’m not sure if it’s worth keeping the app...I’m on the fence about getting rid of the app!! I have other news apps and NONE, as of yet, have added these annoying ads with sound..... Too bad had a great thing going.....but not any more!!!

Links in articles don’t work. Please fix this!
I read up on the news every day with this App but the blue underlined links in the articles do not work. Nothing happens when you tap either the underlined words in the article or the “Related:” links throughout. This is very frustrating when I want to go to that other article for more information and can’t.

Hate The New Format
The old format was a lot better. The story selection page was easy to browse through, and it had an unlimited history, allowing me to catch up if I had missed a few days. It also categorized stories. New format is useless eye candy. Story thumbnails are way too big. History of past stories is cut to maybe 1/10th of what it used to be. Stories are no longer categorized. This is like publishing a one page newspaper (when it used to be 20 pages) - reducing the news to a few, dumbed down, chaotically-organized short articles when the articles used to be well ordered and in depth. After years & years of using Fox 13, I'll have to switch to one of the other local channels, because your news is no longer informing me.

It's the best news app to me. I don't want to say it is the best news app out there because God forbid someone says their news app is better, then I have offended someone and I am a bad person. That's today's society. Anyway your news app works well for me keep up the good work.

App Always Crashes
I try to watch the live news through this App. It always crashes with a message that says server error. This has been doing this for months. I am giving up. And even more annoying the same ad plays over and over. (Morgan and Morgan law firm). I do not mind ads but there needs to be a variety. And this particular ad is super annoying. I like the Fox News broadcast but unfortunately this is not a way to be able to watch it.

Fox News....Great Programing
Fox does it up right. Great personalities doing the news. Wish you covered the Sun City Center better cause it seems like nothing ever happens here worth covering, but believe me something is always going on around here. Good, bad ,and well...just ho-hum but this is a very busy community! Still, Fox News, Tampa Bay is the best.

The Best News in TB
I travel a lot through the country and watch local news at times. None can even come close to the professionalism and great reporting that (WTVT) Fox 13 produces. Keep it up John, Kelly, and Paul (even though he can be wrong 50% of the time and still be right...)

Poor sports coverage
Tampa is a great sports town and I wish this app would make more of an effort to cover its teams. You must find sports in the “outline” section of the app and when you do the articles are days or weeks old. For example, I had to go to ESPN to find out how the lightning did. The last article for the lighting was days ago in this app. Disappointing!

Too many adds and hidden popups
Using the app to see the latest hurricane update so I tap on the current radar feed at 5:30 in the morning and a blaring ad comes up first. It takes several seconds before it can be silenced. Too late as the voice from the add has already woken my wife. So be very leery with this app - it brings up lots of advertisements - and they are not all silent!
