Updated news app
Your old app was redundant but this new updated version gives redundancy a whole new name. I literally hate the new format you have chosen. I see the same stories 3 to 4 time at least as I scroll and scroll and scroll trying to read the news. Take a look at any other news app. You can see all the stories at a glance and older stories are kept for a bit near the end. Very easy to see and get to what you want to read. I don’t need for you to make each story headline the size of my entire screen. If someone needs Very Large pic and print size they can control that on their device. You don’t even have a link for the weather anymore. I found it by clicking on the temp in the corner but it only gives hour by hour. What happened to 10 day forecast. Ya’ll really need to fix this mess. It looks like some child made this. I plan to delete your app unless you can update it to a more pleasing format. I’ve already deleted your app off of one of my devices.

Constant freezing
I love KCBD and we live in the country. I cannot get their news even with my digital antenna. So we depend on watching the news in the morning on the app. The app is very frustrating because it either won’t load, it freezes, or sometimes you can see a picture without a sound. It just seems like I fiddle with it way more than I should have to. And let’s talk about the commercials… If I hear one more Sonic commercial is going to make me want to hate to go to Sonic even more! The ads have gotten better lately but there still so much redundancy!

Disappointed, once again.
My old KCBD app worked fine, but I received a reminder to update the app many months ago. Since that time, when there is a news or weather alert on the new app, it fails to load. Simply too much click bait, and just to find local news, you have to open and scroll to local news. Toss the app and go back to a easier way of providing local area news, weather and sports and not , NBC or MSB. Thank you

Lots of info
I stay pretty busy, and I do like to keep up with what is going on, at least the highlights, both locally and nationally, even globally, without having to be home and watch the news each day. Some of the “breaking news” is questionable as to whether it is breaking or not, but I guess it is each to their own preference as to what is important.

It is so good to have this app to get news about Lubbock & surrounding towns & also all the news about Texas Tech sports! Having moved away from Lubbock, I enjoy getting all the news!!! It helps to stay connected.

1 year ago, ATT nit what used to be
Many times I get alerts and have to click on the bell and NOTHING comes up. Then when it finally works, I have a whole page of alerts from even the previous day and have to clear them all. Please fix this. If there’s an alert, allow us to click on it and get the alert, or it becomes a non-alert because we’ve seen it elsewhere by then.

3 years ago, too many #
Since installing the new app, I get a red circle with a consecutive number in it that started with 1 and is now in the 30's on the app. Viewing new or top stories does not clear this number and I have been unable to find a menu function to do this. The old app cleared this number when viewing the new or top stories.

Updated App
This most recent update needs some major work. About 75 percent of the time the app will not open the clock just spins and spins. Every time I click on an advisory it closes the app. Also on my home screen it continues to show that I have advisories even after I delete all the advisories. I wish I had not updated the app.

Junk since the major update
This app has never been awesome but it was at least usable but now it it's super slow to open (when it does actually load). Furthermore there are so many ads. I realize that they need to make money but having to go though 3 ads before you can even get to a breaking news story is a bit excessive.

Horrible since update
Please fix!!!The latest update is extremely frustrating. It’s way to full of adds and makes reading a story near impossible. I understand that you have to have ads to make money but this is ridiculous. One story had 7!!! The content is good although you’re station should think about proofreading the articles before you publish them.

Update crashes more then it works
Gave it 2 stars only cause when it does work I don’t have to dig for the Covid information. Had to dig for breaking news cause it kept crashing when I went to the app. Hmm guess the news wasn’t breaking by the time I found it though

The “new & improved“ KCBD app update
TO: the KCBD app “developers,” I must be in a “TWILIGHT ZONE” universe. This new update for the KCBD app makes it a THIRD RATE PIECE OF 🐶 💩 💩 💩 because now it won’t open any longer. Instead of KCBD being the very best of the three Local news channels followed by FOX 34, & then Everything Lubbock, it’s now FOX 34, Everything Lubbock & finally bringing up the UGLY rear in terms of usefulness. SINCERELY YOURS, A very 😤 OFF app user/ viewer. P.s.: The large # ads absolutely NEEDS to be greatly reduced nobody cares about getting your roof repaired, or needs a new truck from the Hillbillies in Levelland when launching the app or, @ the very beginning, middle & end of every article. Always remember to ask yourself daily: Do 🐻🐻🐻 💩💩💩 🌲 🌲🌲?

App crashing anytime I try to open it!
The App crashes anytime I try to open it or click on a news story to read it that comes through as an alert on my phone. I get the alerts, and when I click on them to read them, the app just crashes and won’t open. I downloaded the latest “update” in June 2019 and ever since I can’t open the app.

KCBD is my trusted choice
KCBD is my trusted choice for breaking news. They have seasoned veteran’s that give me the latest news without exaggeration or unnecessary drama. They give me the facts and I know that it will be trustworthy.

Hate the new app
I hate the updates to this app and am thinking of deleting it. Especially the alerts. I go in and clear them and then next thing I know there are 45 alerts. So I go out to clear and only see one. Plus you can’t link up to the story from the alert. It’s all very annoying.

App is no good any.
What news the app doesn’t even load anymore. Everyone so worried about all the advertisements that they don’t care that we actually get the news anymore. I waited 10min for app to load. All I got was one advertisement and five more minutes of loading. And this is on WiFi

Don’t bother clicking alerts, it closes the app. Instead, you gotta go dig the story out of the many. Search doesn’t work either. Even typing this the font color is white, same as the background.

Why fix what wasn’t broken
Have had nothing but problems since the app was “updated.” Difficult to navigate. Get half way through an article, goes to white screen. Get half way through a video, goes to blank screen. Go back to the old app.

Terrible Update
If it’s not bad enough I had to look at the Reagor-Dykes crap on old app for a month, I get notification in app to update. Updated to a terribly ugly and unappealing app that made the news worse. The links are not all functional and well, it’s just plain ugly and makes me WANT to use other apps. Highly discourage anyone from looking at the update...bleh!!!

Layout is misleading
The information is fine, but I really don’t like the layout. The ads and “click-bait” look exactly the same as the local news I’m trying to read. I feel like they are trying to trick me into going to their advertiser’s websites. I love KCBD, but think they need to redesign the app

Bigger phone - smaller print
Bought the biggest phone and Kcbd is too small to read. Even on iPad it is too small with no way to change. No dynamics. I’ll look somewhere else

What’s Wrong with the KCBD App?
I’m getting the same message as another reviewer: No Connection Internet connection not detected. Please activate it and try again. There’s nothing wrong with my internet. I’ve deleted the app, restarted my device, and reinstalled the app. Twice. No joy! Please fix it!

More Ads than news links and content
Scrolling through the app it’s actually hard to determine what’s KCBD news content I am trying to see versus random Ads throughout. It has more ads than news content.

Repeated News casts
The app is better than the broadcast. All the broadcasts want you to do is tune in at Ten for the complete story. So I have stared watching another channel for my news.

Review of KCBD news app
Hate it. 1-I used to be able to swipe from one story to the next and now can’t. I have to return to the home page. 2-News stories repeat. Confusing. 3-Your advertising about KCBD apps come in the middle of a story and cuts into a sentence. The sentence doesn’t continue anywhere.

This app is useless. It will not load. Deleted it and downloaded again and again to no avail. Also, pretty tired of seeing Hartin on Facebook posting pics of herself dressed in provocative clothing. What’s the matter KCBD? Is this really the standards you approve? Ugh!

Too many adds
Adds...lots of adds. Every time you click a story...adds. Make a mistake and get out of the app, another add when you go back. And unless it’s news, I don’t want alerts...whoever wins a ball game is not news.
