Most current news and info
Love the app. Fox 5 does a great job of keeping the new current in one place. Other news outlets (TV and print) rely on social media for the latest updates, making it necessary to check several places to get current news. Plus the ability to stream from the app is convenient and easy.

Minus a star for the amount of articles leading you to a live stream
It’s easily the best local news app. Lots of content expanding many subjects in an easy and simple menu. Breaking news comes fast and it comes heavily. If you’re not a fan of your phone going off constantly. This ain’t your app. Biggest issue with the app is the fact that on almost all breaking news alerts you swipe to read. It has a half sentence and then tells you to watch the live stream. People own this app to read articles, not watch the news. It makes the news station feel less authentic and more trendy for a millennial crowd that refuses to read. It’s something they should seriously work on.

Lay offs
What is wrong with you people you Lay off the people we enjoy like Heidi and mike Doria and hire all these new young people who have no relationship to the news Christ you even lost Melanie. What the heck are you guys thinking? Most people want anchors they can relate to not 29 year olds that are barely out of school. At least you didn’t fire Jason and the rest of the long timers. What does it take to make you see most people watching tv are my age at least in their 50’s and they like longevity young people don’t even watch news. Christ I’m not even going to watch channel 5 since you guys keep laying off all the good anchors. Get your heads out of your xxxx. Get a clue people like familiarity and closeness Family with their news people. I can’t even keep up with all these new idiots you’ve hired to bring news. Get s clue.

Problems with App
I've had this App on my iPhone for several years with no problem. A little over a week ago the news articles stopped auto-updating. I deleted the app and reloaded it, and it operated normally for one day and started the same behavior. I love this app, it is my main source of info as to what is occurring here in the LV valley, so I miss it. Can you please ascertain if there is an incompatibility with Apple’s latest IOS 16.6.1 update or somehow a bug that needs to be corrected?

“Watch live” never ever works
I can go on the internet and get accurate up to date weather and watch content other than “live news”. The live streaming was the reason I was interested in this app. I have had this app here in Las Vegas for over a year. Streaming the news over ATT LTE, or 3G is NEVER possible. The stalling and buffering makes it impossible to watch. WIFi is the exact same experience. I have very fast internet and steam content all the time but this app is crap when it comes to streaming live. Please fix this app or stop misleading the public into thinking live streaming is possible with this app.

Like Fox News
Fox News is my go to place but there is a little thing I would like to have fixed on your app. That would be able to share with my friends the matter if it is a breaking news item. Thanks Fox News

“Breaking News” is a joke
The app is fine. It works and functions exactly how you’d want a news app to work. However, their threshold for what qualifies as “Breaking News” when those are the only notifications you want is set extremely low. That standard needs to be reevaluated. I get Breaking News notifications when a celebrity does something, when an athlete is injured, when a new festival is coming to Vegas. It’s insane. In my mind, Breaking News is what you’d expect to see in an amber alert - active shooter, hazardous materials, police stand off, barricades situations near me, missing child, etc. Instead, I’m notified today that Tucker Carlson is leaving FOX and that the Oakland A’s are making further progress in coming to Vegas. Great - that’s real breaking.

This app is terrible
This app has more ads than news. Many times when you click on a news headline all you see is ads. The article is nowhere to be found. The traffic map is useless. It is so small and covered with icons that cover the map. The traffic articles are months old. Every once in a while a hot news story pops up and you can actually read it, but that is an exception. This app needs to be completely re designed.

Ridiculous notifications
App is fine but don’t agree to “breaking news alerts. I got 20 yesterday and 5 already today and it’s not even 9am! Most are just ads to watch their broadcast. Woke me up at 6 am both days. First day was to tell me they’d show me one of the parade floats and today was to tell me they’d show me the beer pong tournament! App says it will let you customize alerts you want to see but when you try to do that it only shows two choices; breaking news, and weather. Beer pong is not breaking news!

Never loads
I traveled to California a couple weeks a month and I try to stay up on the news using the fox five app, but constantly connecting to live streaming never works and if it does, I only get it for a few minutes and then it never comes back. very disappointed. I love this new station and I like to keep up on what’s going on at home but the app is really horrible at this point

Needs some improvements
I hardly ever open this app unless there is a fascinating news article to read. But for me the main usefulness of this app is when it flashes news updates across my notification screen and I can read instant news updates on the go. It has a severe lack of features. They need to add more features to this app to make it more useful.

Used to be my go-to for news
Fix 5 used to be my go-to app for news, but not so much anymore. The app has banner ads at the bottom that keep slowing down my IPhone 8 to the point where it locks up. I can’t even scroll through the top news anymore before it freezes. Those bottom banner ads are cheesy, too, Fox 5. You can do better than that.

App was not updating had to uninstall and reinstall
App worked great in the beginning but after about a year the app didn’t want to update. So I had to uninstall and reinstall in order to get app to update and show the correct date of events as it was 6 days behind. (And yes I checked my apps and made sure it shows as up to date) otherwise I enjoy using this app.

Pretty terrible reporting even fake news.
Articles are poorly written most of the time, and usually the important facts are missing. Also, the video about women walking out of nail salon without paying, had the guilty women’s faces block out. Give me a break. Why don’t you help the community identify and catch them. Also, how about having a comment section in the news article. So you can listen to the opinions of your viewers.

App can be Buggy
This app is good on notifications. But, when going into the app, some screens are buggy and tend to jump. At that point, I give up and close the app. Needs an upgrade to fix the bugs!!

Update leads to a Mess
Regarding the new app layout, it’s too scattered, repetitive and confusing. I’ve stopped using it got this reason and had to switch news sources. I hope you’ll redo it in a more user friendly and easy flowing manner, as it’s a mess now. For example: Top 3 stories across top, then repeated down middle, switch to traffic, then two week old news? What’s the point if I can’t get news fast and up to date?

Not worth even downloading
At first it worked, now you can’t even submit an issue. Not worth downloading, so aggravating! The actual app won’t even let you rate it have to go to the App Store find it and then submit. What’s the point of having it if it doesn’t work and you don’t care? Just useless!

No more live feed
What’s been happening with this app lately? It worked fine for years and then all of a sudden it will no longer find your live news, instead, it’ll roll an endless amount of commercials. I tried exiting out and going back in and now I’m getting national news based out of Kentucky. what’s going on?

Glitchy and difficult
Used to be my go to source. Now, I have to go through several screens and more often than not the app hangs up on a ad and will not take me to news. Even though I prefer anchors on Fox 5, I now watch the channel 13 app that never gives me problems. Fix the app if you want me back

No tablet rotation
When I read on my tablet I pretty much always have my device in the landscape view and not the portrait view. So, I’m quite disappointed that I cannot flip the screen that way. So, I will not be using the news app on my tablet.

The reason I gave you 3 stars is because every time I want to read something I have to go to Facebook I’m not on Facebook and never will be. Everyone is not on Facebook. Why are you ? Just have your own app. Like Fox News National

Please update for landscape view
I love being notified for news topics. My iPad sits on my desk and I’m able to click the link and see the latest. With this app I have to pick it up and turn it upright. Unfortunately I’ll have to rely on the other up to date news apps so I can read on my iPad.

Doesn’t work, doesn’t play fox 5
App doesn’t function. Most of the time it gets stuck replaying ads until you restart the entire app. And the app doesn’t actually play Fox 5 in Vegas anymore, it streams a generic news station from the east coast instead. Low quality app and dev.

Whenever I get a pop up notification about a story and click on it, it just takes me to a video commercial and 9 out of 10 times the story doesn’t pop up after. Then I can’t find it, you need a search option.

Latest update has destroyed app
Since the latest update, every time I get a notification about a breaking news story and I try to read it, the app shuts down. I also agree with many of the other users that the layout is very poorly designed. This app is going to the trash can.

Newstation that will prefers to report hearsay rather than report the facts. For example the missile attack from Iran at a military base in Iraq on the Chan 5 news stated 80 dead. Nobody was injured! One of many times I’ve caught this news station either reporting false information or half-truths, misleading the general public. I see political bias and another fake-news channel.

Very limited (and outdated) news content
I no longer use this app to find out what’s going on currently in the news as there’s a lack of news content and/or the news that they do post on here is considered “old news” compared to the other local news apps.
