Easiest way to read news
Compared to the other local news apps, Fox4News presents the latest news and weather in the easiest format to access. I especially love the weather info that includes the long ranger at a glance. It doesn’t get crowded up with old news and articles that require sorting through to find the current headlines.

Msm garbage
App crashes constantly, normally within the first or second article. After closing it and reopening you might get to read 3 articles before the next freeze. If this isn't bad enough, or having video ads start playing despite never touching them. Most if not all national news comes from the most trusted name in fake news CNN or the equally as biased associated press. If i wanted to read pro establishment deep state propaganda (what Time magazine would deceptively champion as a secret cabal) with radical progressive liberals, i wouldn't go to fox. Apparently local fox is hoping to appeal to the woke, those who destroy our republic. Need more proof? Look at the positive spin around every disastrous decision mayor Quinton Lucas has made. REAL AMERICAN'S are tired of being treated as too ignorant to see what's happening, and being told by the elite whether that's social media, or msm through censorship, shaming, race baiting, canceling,etc. What we should believe is what they are telling us, not what our on eyes and minds are seeing. Speaking of Time, why with such an important story explaining how the election was rigged wouldn't you report it? Time is far from a conservative publication. Nevermind i know the answer. Your part of the establishment/problem with this country. I hope others who didn't already know this have a chance to read this review & will now make their own decision if what they're being fed is food for thought, or leftward rot.

Awful! New update as of April 5, 2021.
I don’t know what you did to your app in this new update but, being a screen reader customer, it is almost impossible to get through your app now! All I really want to do is watch live TV from my phone and I can’t even find the live TV option anymore. That used to be the second option from the top and now it’s gone! Also, all of your buttons just say the word, image, instead of telling me what each button is. This is a nightmare for visually impaired users! Fix it now! Please! I am a loyal fox for watcher and since I moved out of Kansas City I only watch you on my phone! You have made this incredibly difficult and I am so super disappointed!😭

Unexpected Shut Downs
I love fox4 KC when it comes to TV but this app is frustrating. I will be reading an article and all of a sudden the app closes and my phone goes to my main screen. You then have to reopen the app and relocate the article you were reading. Also every time I open the app it takes up more and more space on my phone's storage. I don't understand why because I don't save any articles. It was up to 660MB so I deleted the app and reinstalled it. The storage amount went back down to 20MB but it's now over 100MB after using the app a few times. What is causing this? The weather app doesn't increase in storage usage.

Constant problems with news refresh
I have had constant problems with this news app refreshing with updated news stories. Often go days without new stories being updated even when trying to manually refresh. I update the app and my operating system regularly. I have removed and dowloaded multiple times. Nothing helps. I like the format and that’s why I kept trying to remedy this problem but done fooling with it. I will use another local station’s app going forward.

Don’t like the latest upgrade to the App
I prefer to read my news. With the latest upgrade some of the news articles are videos. That would be okay if there was a way to click back to the list of news articles, but their isn’t. Once the video is done, it goes on to another video. I have to close the app and restart the app and hope I don’t click on another video. I am no even going to bother opening the app anymore unless I’m notified the problem has been remedied.

I’ve enjoyed that you’ve considered the customer in how your app is user friendly. I’m a channel 4 viewer for 49 years and you’ve continued to improve the quality of your stations news. Thank You! Your staff has definitely put and kept the reader in mind.

Good format; poor tech
I would agree with other reviews that the Fox 4 News app for Kansas City news updates is by far the best format. It’s why I am so disappointed in the overall operation of the app though. There is a beg that causes the app to freeze, sometimes in an article, at other times while simply scrolling the homepage, causing me to have to totally shut the app down and reboot the app. This is very frustrating, again, because the format is my personal favorite over the Chanel 9, TV5, and 41 apps for Kansas City news.

This needs some serious work
So if we are supposed to get all of the local breaking news from this app, why is it that when you load this app using accessibility features such as voiceover and or magnification settings the app chokes? Instead of improving the app, it’s getting worse. So much so that voiceover now crashes. My phone has not shut down on me, but I’m afraid that it may do that if I keep running this application. Please update this app for accessibility and looks. If nothing else, at least accessibility. This is very horrible that this is not been addressed.

Fox 4 Is Extremely Biased
I’ve had this app on my phone for a few years and can’t take it anymore. F4 is an extreme liberally biased network and it shows in their articles. In addition to the ideology of the network, pieces written by “journalists” like Malik Jackson and Andrew Lynch are laughable spelling and grammatical errors abound (Fellas, you might want to spell-check before publishing; my high schooler could do better with he eyes closed). If you like your news spoon-fed to you through a progressive filter, this app is for you, otherwise it’s garbage.

I just want to read the news
Unfortunately with latest updates videos start playing pinned to the top half of the screen. So you have a tiny window space to read at the bottom. You can’t stop videos from playing. Hit pause it starts playing an ad. No matter how you scroll you can’t see the top line of the story because a data sucking video pops up and starts playing. I miss being able to quietly read the news with Fox4.

How about more updates?
Rarely do you find a local story get updated when it says ‘check back for updates’. If something does get updated, it may be in a different link you have to search for or luck into finding. Enjoy the content otherwise.

Why put buttons to limit items if you’ll just show it anyways?
The app, itself, is fine. But for the love of all that is holy!!!!! If you put in buttons to limit certain types of news…..LIKE WEATHER!!!!!!! Then remove all weather alerts!!!!! If I wanted weather alerts, then I’d download the Fox 4 weather app………………..

Needs another update
The only problem I have with this app is if I click on a story to read then want to back to read another story it ALWAYS kick me back to the top of the list instead of bringing me back to where I left off!! This is a waste of time having to go back to the beginning of the list of news stories every time then have to search where you left off!!

Find another line of work!
Crap app and news reporting. Ever hear of grammar and spellcheck? Love how you bait people to go read or see an article only to have to put up with 3 minutes of advertisements before it takes you there (sometimes it never makes it to the article). Do yourself a favor and skip this news station and biased reporting. Only two reporters I trust there, the others are crap.

49% old news, 50% clickbait
For a decent news station, Fox4 should be ashamed of this app. Most recently they’ve taken to making clickbait ads look like news stories. The actual news stories are rarely updated, and when they do have a “breaking news” story it’s often from yesterday. Terrible, deceptive, unprofessional app.

Terrible app
I’m at the point Of not even using this app. It constantly Freezes or refreshes to the point that you cant even read a news article. So disappointing ... you would think they would test their own app and would want one that reflects better on their station.

FOX4 problem
Fox 4 was my go to ab for news. Even on my iPad 6 it was fast and worked great, but now since update it is slow, will interrupt a story with a “continue to read” flag. Then fills the screen with adds. Hit the continue to read flag does nothing. I have fast internet service and WiFi. Other APs are not acting like this.

You will open a news story and immediately be redirected to an advertiser’s website. I feel as though this a slimy way of getting website hits. Really makes me not like this app.
