I cannot use this app. A full screen thing comes up for activating weather alerts and it is too big for my screen. I cannot make it bigger or smaller. I cannot make it go away. I have used this app for many years but this is impassable 🤷🏻‍♀️ I am writing this later. I fixed this problem by making my text size smaller. 😁 Now I love the app again.

Fact Check of SOTUS Last Night
Very disappointed that your morning newscasters this AM (2/6/19) joined with fake news. They played a short excerpt from the speech on his economic comments. He said it is “ONE” of the greatest booms in history followed by it is “UNPRECEDENTED.” Both are accurate. You distorted the comments by pointing to 3 other times when it was surpassed. That may be true, but his statement wasn’t contrary to that. Additionally, the “unprecedented” part is our economy has never boomed with numbers like this for such a lengthy period of time. You need to be aware YOU TOO are being fact checked. Whether you agree with Conservative policies or not don’t follow the fake news media. If you want to maintain high ratings you’d better get it right and be aware Indiana is a Conservative state supporting President Donald Trump. REPORT HONESTLY and don’t be biased!!!

Great way to get news!
I am a person who does not like to watch the news on TV. I do like to know what’s going on in the world however. Getting to read it is more concise and I can read full articles about those things that interest me. There are some things I just do not like to see or hear the long lengthy things that TV airs.

Wrong Direction
The update that allows your to scroll up to the top of the list by clicking at the top of the screen is a nice update. Problem… I enjoy the National/World news as much as local. Up until recently you could tap “see more” to view older articles. Clicking this button no longer opens up older articles. Now I’m only able to view the most recent 10 articles, but nothing older. I’m not a fan. Working all day I want to see everything I missed. Hopefully, this next app update can address that.

What the heck…!
I updated FOX59 and sister News 4 apps as requested… When you click on app and try to read a news story, it is covered with ads that never end and just a tiny bit of text at the bottom which you have to attempt to read a line at a time.. Does a real person who can read ever try to use these apps? I am sure I am not the only one who doesn’t want to watch videos that take forever, I like to read the info at my speed.

Local News Option
I would like to see a local or state news filter option. I don’t need to see the national news stories with local stories sprinkled in. I only have so much time when I check the news, I want You to be my local/state news go to. But with out this filter, I may need to seek out another source.

Turns off audio of other apps
If I am listening to a podcast, music, audiobook etc., the audio is turned off when I open this app. Does not happen with other news station apps. The news reporting is okay, just wish photos included with articles could be enlarged so they can be seen on a phone.

Small print and wasted space
Too much white space in this supposedly updated app. Looks terrible with small print and lots of wasted white space on the screen with the story titles. Makes the stories look like ad after annoying add and those are the stories! The ads look great! This update could have ben done so much better by high school students.

App works great, but...
Like the app. It's one of the first I look at for local news. However, 1 gripe. When you give a breaking news update, please provide somewhere in the app these can be easily accessed. I've found times I want to refer back to the article but I am unable to locate it in the app. Please address this :)

Dislike the new layout
The new layout is not aesthetically pleasing. The article titles look like advertisements or the click-bait articles for some hoax of a product. The layout before was so much nicer and easier to find articles. I will use a different local news app until the layout is changed. This one does not make me want to read the news.

Best way to get news when you have no television around.
I don't really watch television but I'm informed just the same with the app as if I were near my television.

Locks up constantly
All I want to do is read the news. The videos never work but that’s not a big deal to me. Sharing any article gives a strange link to a forwarder that never works correctly. And now the app locks up about halfway through any article I read. I’m over this, time to move on to something else.

Wonky App
Have yet to be able to use this app for more than a day or two without having to delete because the ads freeze up. Using an iPad, iOS up to date. Very irritating. Maybe I’ll just give up.

Fox 59

We Are Farmers!
This app just loops commercials for farmers insurance. It’s difficult to get to where the ‘watch live’ feature actually shows you live tv. That has been an ongoing problem for months so it wasn’t just a bug. App is a waste of time and an insult to expect anyone to just sit through all that advertising.

The latest update is driving me crazy. It crashes constantly, both on my iPhone and iPad. Scrolling through the newsfeed, it crashes. Open an article and start to read it, it crashes. Drives me nuts. Fix it!!

Very agitated
I’m very agitated that I was forced to update my app if I want to continue to use it. Also, the app informed me of how to keep my personal info from being sold, but the toggle switches do not work. How convenient. I do not believe for a second that’s by accident.

Deleted because of advertising practices
They have deliberately over sized adds so you can’t help but click on them as you scroll. Opens add in your browser and takes you out of news app. This is annoying and extremely off putting.

Amateur ,not a news app
Too much fluff no substance Also any real stories from AP you must tap to get into Deleted this one Need a serious news app for a metropolis like Indy, not giggling puppy stories and Facebook posts that the editor considers real news. Look for a news source with real journalism

Latest update is HORRIBLE

Landscape orientation
I don’t like the New live part of this app! Are used to be able to run the news while I’m working and see the screen in landscape. Haven’t been able to figure out how to get the screen to l landscape. Probably won’t use it much now.

Might be a nice app but you can’t contact them
Might be a great app but if I can’t leave a comment from the app it ain’t worth a hill of recycled beans to me. You would think you could email or text them from this app. I guess I will still watch 59 on tv only as I am deleted the app.

So many Ads it’s hard to scroll
There’s so many touchy embedded ads it’s hard to scroll and see the news. The app freezes up constantly. 2 stars is probably overly generous.

If you want old news. Get this app.
All the old stories hide any new ones. And the new ones (if there are any) are hidden in the the stream of old news. This used to be decent news app. No longer.

This app is trash
The app is slow, it freezes every single time I try to use it. Don’t know what’s going on but they need to get it together. Hasn’t always been this way so it’s slightly frustrating.
