Mix up the ads please.
I get it, ads need to be shown for this to be a thing. But please try to put different ads rather than run the same thing 4 times over and over. I just got done watching the same ad 4 times in a row for Park Center Health and Fitness. I really appreciate this being made free so we can get our local news without having to pay for cable but the same ad four times in a row is annoying.

Why is app suddenly freezing?
I have used your Fox 9 news app for years without issue. The last couple of weeks when I touch the icon, I get a blue screen with a spinning circle, and no matter how long I wait, it never connects. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app a half dozen times. When I do, it will always connect immediately after reinstalling, and sometimes for a time or two after, but then it will sit and spin again. I have no other apps that do this, including your weather app which still works great. This problem has become annoying so I am uninstalling the app indefinitely and will get my news elsewhere. Perhaps I’ll reinstall it again in a month or two and see if anything has been changed/fixed.

Rarely the first with news posted
This actually is better than the other local news channel apps. However, sometimes I wonder if it’s just the intern doing it… No offense… The news tends to be not be updated as often as it should be. For example, there is an article about yesterdays weather still on there today And that seems to happen quite often. It needs to be more timely. the “back to school”heading hasn’t changed for months to the point it’s so irritating I would delete the app if I had better option! plz update

First turn to MSP News
The story last Sunday about the troubled Motor Vehicle license registration program was detailed and eyeopening. Keep up the good work. Darryl Schaumburg St Paul, Mn Your story on MN childcare fraud, was right on and embarrassing to State officials. Guv Dayton had 1 staff person devoted to looking for anti Muslim stuff in the media. They thought your story could be damaging to emerging DFL influence in the Muslim community. The IG who was suspended was active in slowing down “bad” info that was perceived as helping your accounts. Nobles refused to be muzzled but still toned down his report DS/STP

Weather forecast
The weather forecast always is a day off. The weather listed under the day before is actually today’s weather. The weather under “Today” is then tomorrow’s weather. It is a bit frustrating to try and figure out the rest of the week. Other than that I really like the app. My favorite is the radar.

What has happened?
I used to use this app several times a day. Now, when I try to open it, it pops up and....sometimes there is an ad .. BUT it doesn’t open. I know this is happening to others as well. This is terrible. Please take care of this flaw. I rate it high based on past use. Really it no stars because I cannot open it today ..... nor for the past week.

This works 30% of the time
Every time I try to open it in the app it just sits and spins never opens . I have had to re-download it about 8 times and it works for a week or so and than stops working .. not a very reliable app wish it work better but don’t .. have moved to other news apps that actually work and download.. do better fix fox 9 but I think I’m gonna delete it and don’t have to worry bout it not loading .. very annoying when you just trying to catch up on the news around your area.

Your Town Team series
Without a doubt your news team had to LOVE this series. Your live shows during all 3-5 newscasts was such a “breath of fresh air” compared to what they have to report nearly every day. Kelsey and everyone showed what true professionals they are working without a teleprompter and sitting on a lawn chair on the top of a river dike! Thank you all For a tremendous news show.

Loud ads and pop ups since last update
Usually I like this app but since the last update most times when I open the app a full screen ad shows up and it is also loud. Makes it hard to check during the day due to the amount of ads and sound. Please remediate this issue.

So easy to see top stories at a glance
Fox 9 has the BEST weather on TV. Love Ian Leonard. Learn so much interesting weather stuff from him. Wish the news app would have more stories both local and statewide from the new casts. The coverage is good-would like it to include more that you can read, less video. Do not want to want to have the audio on when in a quiet place and want the news.

Pretty good but adding features would make it better
It would be nice if there was a chrome cast option when watching live through the app instead of just screen sharing with other apple devices.

This is a great app for staying in touch with our breaking local news stories. The App has always worked well for me and the alerts that are sent out, give a headline whether I choose to read/listen/watch the broadcast or not. I like getting the top stories when I have time to read them. Thanks FOX 9!

The Great Communicator of news apps.
I love the functionality of this app. It has everything you can ask, and between the news and the weather apps, Fox 9 gives it all. Thank you for keeping me and the other users up to date.

New version is terrible
Seems like more stories in new version but just keeps showing same stories in different order/categories. Will probably switch to different local news app. And clean up old stories. You have a heat wave story from 4 days ago. It’s 50 and raining not feels like 94 degrees. You have failed with your weather app update and now your news app. Seeing what you’ve done to these apps is as painful as the Herschel Walker trade and the North Stars going to Dallas.

I love channel 9 in a Minneapolis Minnesota. I do get frustrated sometimes though with I believe a certain day out of each week there’s nothing but game shows on the 7-9 programs. Just not a big game watcher. Except the beat Shazam. But Thank You Channel 9

I love that I can still get the live news on nights when my rabbit ears reception is less than perfect. Much better than the other local stations in town. Keep adding as much live content as FOX will allow for free!

Gaining frustration
This news app use to be good before they started to bombard the reader with obnoxious ads. Some ads are so difficult to close out of and just yield me closing my attempt to read this source and go elsewhere for news. The weekend updates for news are a little lacking as well. News during the week is kept a little more up to date.

WAS Best Local News App
Of the 4 major news station apps, Fox 9 is my go-to. Very well organized and easy to find what I might be looking for. Also love that it's so easy to forward stories/videos to my sister living in Colorado so she's in touch with hometown happenings. I change my rating. The app updated yesterday and now it won't even open! Period! Might as well delete it. What happened! I've tried repeatedly and it won't open anymore.

Live streaming is not live streaming
The live streaming is less then disappointing. Seriously live in the morning for a very short period of time. The rest of the day is a road camera. Not even traffic camera. I mean really, what’s the point? I searched fox 9 because I can’t stand the other local stations and I went back to ch 5 because this is a joke. This is the worst app ever. This is so disappointing I can’t stop complaining. It makes me so grumpy.

Trashy ads
Like getting local news at my fingertips but I’m tired of having to look at the same trashy lingerie ads when my news item is at the bottom Similarly, when I stream live news, can you have advertisers other than Credible and Oslo??

Extremely biased and the app doesn’t work.
This news source is extremely biased and left leaning. On top of that, the app doesn’t even work right. You’ll get notifications of headlines of news stories, but then you open the app to read the article and it’s not there. Got to wait 30-45 minutes sometimes for a story to refresh and actually be available to read. Don’t waste your time.

Great station! Now my favorite Twin Cities News Station. Sorry to see Jeff Passolt leave but he deserves to enjoy his golden years in retirement. Kudos to him for a great career, much of it with FOX 9. Kudos to the rest of the team. Everyone is doing a great job. Keep it up!!

Watching morning buzz
How can people so blindly endorse a holiday they know nothing about other than that other people celebrate it and that their parents blindly celebrated it as did theirs etc...... halloween is a celebration the sacrifice of young girls. Actual brutal sacrificial killing coming from a abduction... that is what the idiots on the news are giving me all these “wonderful” ads about.... it makes me sick that people dont do their research or stand up for themselves. Bunch of cowards.

The app worked perfectly and now that it’s updated I can’t get the past and future to work on the map, it just keeps glitching. It’s very frustrating when I work construction and have relied on this app for years and now it won’t work…. The update is junk and has been for a month or two now. Needs to be fixed

My review.
I appreciate the news I receive. I wish it were updated more on weekends. I can’t imagine you don’t have people there to do that. And please - stop showing that pop up at the bottom about the show. Or anything for that matter. Very annoying!! Otherwise I’d give it 5 stars.

Poor written reports
I have subscribed for months and constantly see errors in the report content. It is my opinion that these should be proof read before posting like a newspaper to prevent simple errors. Now each time I open a story I am taken to a page claiming I have won a gift card. Time to try out one of the other station apps.

Love fox 9 not the app
The app is good, it is just trying to provide lots of information, and thus it can’t provide detail info. I love my fox station on tv and it is the only station I watch. But for sports and weather the two things I care more about I don’t get enough info from this app. It is not user friendly, and I can’t customize to what I want to see.

Where is the news?
Does this station know what news is and how to report it at this point? All i hear is the propaganda from the governor and his cast of uninformed advisors at this time. How about using the exemption from the house arrest rules and send the folks that are supposed to be reporters and investigators out across the state to figure out what is real and report that. Novel idea, hum.

Adds are annoying and buggy! Half stories rest blank
Adds are annoying and buggy! They don’t update their stories that often and typically have several grammatical errors. Currently the app is only displaying half the article and the rest of the page is completely blank 🤷🏻‍♂️.
