Food segments
We love Fox 2 , but most of the interviews the fox2 people need to stop talking over the people. Charlie , El & Michael on sat. on the food episode s are very rude need to give the people their time. Need more time for food episodes and be allowed to do their demonstration. Love the food segment s, but they need more time. The fox2 people could not take so long giving their own options and give the time to the segments. We love the Fox2 people and station only one we watch. But very frustrating when we are interested in a segment and they can’t finish. More time for food segments and let them finish their demonstration now that I have vented we really do love everyone on fox2 and the station.

Good app, with good news! Except for the LONG advertisements that you have to sit through each time you want to watch a video. It seems to be the same adds for the same company for months at a time. Try changing it up and showing briefer adds? I’ve navigated off of your videos many times because I just can’t watch the same add again.

Terribly designed app!
HATE all the extra clicks, especially the ALLOW TRACKING just to get into the dang app!!! No other app does this! WHY does Fox 2 need to TRACK and collect info on users? Other major issue is “Watch Live.” It does not play immediately so you miss content, randomly switches to another live show or ads and you don't know what the heck you're watching which is so annoying, random “we’ll be right back” when its not a commercial, ads are awful and looong, and there’s volume control issues. Would expect A LOT more from a local broadcasting network! NOT a user friendly app.

Missing Fox 2 Family
I moved up near the Flint area. I soon found out that I no longer was able to get Fox 2 news. It was like moving away from a family member, I miss all the friendly faces. My husband works afternoons, so when I sat down for dinner I would flip you guys on to have dinner with. Of course I have the app downloaded so I keep up with some of the stories. Tell Rob the story on the Ypsilanti rapist is great, and does he know where I can get the book.

Pop up ads
The relentless pop up ads are becoming a nuisance. If it was just one when you opened the app it would be one thing, but the same ad opening over what you are reading is approaching a point where I will delete the app. The Fox National App was deleted for nuisance problems from use as well. The news is good, but I don’t buy from pop up ads EVER. I would like to think that many that expect the level of news from Fox feel the same way making them counter productive and only present because Fox wants to sell ad space only and not interested in their patrons. Sounds similar to politicians pandering solely for votes and not serving the constituents.

Absolutely my Favorite
This is an app I go to often each day. They have the updates from all over the world and the real lowdown on what's going on in Detroit! The Weather Authority is very accurate also. Easy to use it all!! One thing will help; I’ve had the weather app for years, when I’m on the Fox2 main app and want weather info, Don’t take me to the APP Store. Make it take me to Weather app I’ve already got!! Please!

Watch Live is great ! But…
Love this app. Been using it for years when on the road in the morning and when I’m out of town. Artn App Developers: recently after I’ve opened and closed the app it randomly just starts playing in the background. The app is not open yet all the sudden I’m hearing your news reports and then pause and then adds (usually Bernstein adds). The app is not up nothing is open on my phone. I’ve tried everything. I’ve tried turning off auto play videos in settings and in iTunes. Nothing works until I shut my phone off. What the heck?

Poor notifications support
I accidentally tapped a notification from this app in Notification Center which opened the app and because the app opened, it cleared all the rest of the app’s notifications without me having a chance to see them. That’s not how it should work. I should be able to tap on a notification to see a specific story and then return to Notification Center to see the rest of the notifications. Clearing them when the app opens is not technically necessary and is not the desired behavior.

Annoying commercials between live stream
I like to watch the news while getting read for work. The “commercials” are extremely annoying. The direct tv ad that’s in French plays on repeat and it’s the most ridiculous thing to listen to. I’d rather listen to Sam Bernstein in repeat.

My Go To
I watch Fox 2 Detroit every morning for a quick catch-up. My favorite is The Nine. This app lets me have all of that right in my hand. If there is something I heard on the news that morning that I wanted to talk about with my fiancé later that day, so I have to do is pull up the app. It’s great.

Re rating Fox News Survey
I actually love it. You asked lol so just IMO 1) There is a def need however for spelling; and context -flow editorial scrutiny of the news stories read on iPhone🤔; 2) my former irritation 🙄 with news/weather repetition is now assuaged lol because if I'm out- which I believe is your intent - I see the news etc that I may have missed👏. Love u guys!

Fox 2 online.
Enjoy your site very much. It’s the easiest to use, very well written and to the point. Keep up the good work. The only improvement could be proofread the stories before posting. There’s often misspelled or misused words. Kinda makes reading the story a bit confusing.

Can’t watch local news shows
Didn’t want to write a review, but there is no place to contact about an issue. I cannot watch my local Detroit news shows. I tap The Nine live and every time shows as playing but it is always some other live news below it. The whole reason I got the app is th watch my local The Nine, 11 am News & The Noon. Please fix this or the app is useless & will be deleted. I have been having this issue for awhile now. Very disappointed

Best Morning News App
I watch the news every morning from the app. I've tried other local news apps and I always come back to Fox2. Not only do I watch the news from the app, but also read the articles, catch up on "Let it Rip" and more...

School Closures
I always go to my Fox 2 app to check on school closures. I still have to get out in this bad weather and the sooner I can confirm the earlier I can leave. Thanks for making my day a lot easier during these “snow day” inclement weather days. The kids are happy and so am I.

Poor app management
I’ve been using FOX 2 since your app came out. Sadly, half of the time, the app crashes right when I’m in the middle of watching a news story I really wanted to hear about. EXTREMELY ANNOYING! That is when you can even watch the stories. The saved video stories don’t even work but the 30 second ads do 🤬. I’ve been a fan of FOX 2 for years but it seems that management of the newsroom needs some “reconditioning”. A lot of times, the stories themselves are inaccurate anymore.

Too many grammar errors and slow updates
There so many grammatical errors that it's make it difficult to read the articles most times. In addition, in the rush to send breaking news alerts, information is often inaccurate and changes from update to update. the kid 2 or 8?!! I don't depends on when you read the article.

Fox News
Fox News tells the truth, stands up for our President Trump, who loves his country America, and is doing his best to save us from doom. CNN and other channels are so hateful I can’t stand to watch their hateful thoughts trying to destroy a president any way they can and by doing so destroying America. Thank God for Fox News and thank God for president Trump.

Really like, but......
I really like this app, but new news stories never posted on weekend, and there is way too much advertising, which makes it difficult to read entire article without having to scroll way down.

WHY can’t print be enlarged?????
Fox2 stinks for accessibility features! Can NOT zoom or enlarge text besides the 3 little dinky options they give up in the right corner that are useless! HATE apps that CONTROL text size or developers who don’t know HOW to develop simple accessible features! Wait until one of them has low vision one day, then maybe they’ll care. Switch to WDIV people - their app is much better & you CAN ENLARGE / PINCH & ZOOM text to actually read it!!!!

Great for local news, but video often fails.
I am usually using listening to the fox 2 news everyday from 4:30 am to 12:30 pm while I’m working, but often (more than ten times per day) the feed fails and I need to stop what I’m doing to reset the feed, and sometimes it doesn’t always work. Other than that I have no issues and love the app! Good job guys!

Great, but. . .
Often, there are so many “Ads”, I have waited up to 5 minutes for the news to start and then only got 3-4 minutes of news. I’m a snowbird and I really enjoy keeping up with what’s going on in and around the Detroit Metropolitan Area. Some days, it’s just too much.

Facts are checked well
It’s been my experience with these stories on line are assigned to a low level employee or possibly an intern. The facts of the story are consistently incorrect - street names and addresses, name of the people involved are wrong. Fox 2 is one the last places I look for stories on line. Digital presence needs some serious work. Sorry you asked, I gave you the feedback. Advice: check stories for accuracy, timelines and relevancy.

Like the app but font is too small
I watch online every weekend while I'm up north. I find that the font on the stories are a little too small. If you look at the other local channels (4 & 7), their font is larger and easier to read.

Bring it back!
The page is not like it was, can’t tell what is what. The way the page Is set up, the different sections on the same page, it’s confusing. With the previous design, more stories and news would be shown as you open the app, now you have to change the page and press extra buttons to get there.

Superlative. The highest order.
Extremely persistent when it comes to feedback about their app. Maybe that’s just the Bernstein advantage. Good app. Could do without the lame repetitive local lawyer ads but I fully understand what pays the bills.

30 second ads?????
Tapped one of the news videos only to find a 30 SECOND ad wanting to play before I could watch the story. I’m guessing the whole story wasn’t even 30 seconds. Checked a few more videos and they all were prefaced with the same length ad. Who’s the genius who thinks people would sit thru 30 seconds of ads for each story??? Guess I’ll be sticking with my Local 4 for my morning news.

FOX deserves a “C” rating
Of the three news sites, FOX gets a “C” rating from me. The best is WDIV ClickonDetroit. They tell the news, give weather and local events on one site. The worst is WXYZ. You can’t pick on a news story with being kicked out. I look at your site just to see if ClickonDetroit missed something or get a different slant on the same story.

Shut down
The app is constantly shutting down randomly and for no reason. I have tried deleting and reloading the app and updating when available but it continues to randomly shut down when I’m trying to watch. This has been going on for months and I’m at the point that I’ll be switching stations because I don’t feel like restarting the app every 3-5 minutes. Please fix it!
