This app has gotten better recently, though every time I perform one of your updates the result is that the app won't open at all. So I have to delete, and then re-install the app. And to echo others, and despite the fools that think otherwise, spelling and grammar are important, and if you're writing copy you should always proofread before publishing.
Have iphone 6+. Live in Iowa, winter in Palm Springs. Love to check in 7-8 times a day to keep up with news in your area even when winter is over and back in Iowa. My heart belongs to Southern CA!! HOWEVER, new update is national news which I can get elsewhere. Could you please have a "SETTING" that would allow us to read that precious PSP area news happenings. I was so happy with your app before the update. 🌴😎😍
Good app, the news alerts on my phone finally bring this market’s news media into the 21st century. My one complaint is that the stories on the app are not listed in chronological order. A story from two days ago may be listed ahead of a “Breaking News” story from an hour ago. To find the most current stories, you have to scroll through all of them to make sure you find them. Otherwise, the app is the best one for this local market.
Coffee and this up-to-the-minute news brief on my iPad is the way I start my morning and find out what's happening locally. Nicely designed format gives the reader options to just scan headlines, read full articles or watch video of each piece. Another great feature is the instant alerts for breaking news throughout the day.
I love this app but recently they've added advertisements before watching the videos. Which is okay in itself except for the fact that it's always the same advertisement for General Air Conditioning. There is only so many times in an hour I can watch the same 40 seconds of video. Since, I've stopped watching the videos which is unfair. I'm not finding alternatives for the videos posted on this app and can assure you that I would never hire General A/C!!!
As a committed KESQ/CBS 2 viewer, love always liked the app. But in the last couple months or so it’s gotten horrible. The ad for there own app is local news first, ya right! You open the open and it’s national and world news. Also you have English and Spanish mixed on the app, which makes it a pain. After opening app you can select my news I guess for local, wrong again. But I guess we’ll have deal with due to newscast are going the same way. Disappointing, I’ve had to down load the other stations app just so I can see what’s going on in the valley.
This site needs improvement big time! I appreciate that they give the local news immediate attention but some of the recordings are dropped and the voice doesn't sound at the end of the interviews. Also the commercial on Mattress Showroom is annoying because it comes out on every news episode with the same person when you click on the video! REALLY????
When I'm away I rely on desert news and weather but this app has long advertisements before one can even get the news and weather. The most irritating thing is the weather is never up to date- sometimes a day behind! I need it to be current to determine my travel back and forth! Otherwise I like KESQ generally for local news.
First of all, living in the valley you only get news from one side no matter who you get it from. This news app defiantly does not stray far from that. If it’s not their opinionated take on events then it’s a CNN article. Which does a disservice to be fair and impartial. Next, the news stories are jumbled messes of English and Spanish versions. Why they wouldn’t have a specific section for any language they decide to write a story in is beyond me.
Can't click on a news story without an add from Roto Rooter coming up. It's a waste of app. Can't scroll down far enough on the story and boom! There's another ad. I get it, they rely on apps to sponsor them... But this is a joke. Whoever posts the stories, needs to proof them, a 9 yr old has better grammar than some of these writers. Get an app that'll help you readproof it. It re-writes what others do. Be original get some interesting news an updated.
Very nice app to have, I now get news from my area, lower desert to my home in Landers in high desert and world news! So far it has worked quite well and I recommend it to those living in the area! Well done!
This is a great app for keeping track of what's happening in the desert. I have few problems with the site. But I pulled a star from my rating because they couldn't keep the best weather reporter on their staff, and the replacement is sub-par. Better luck next time...
News good. John, Karen, Jeff, Bianca,good anchors. Patrick, Jerry, do great job without talking down to me. I want to know weather without personal hype. I hate being told to pay attention. Some exceptional talent here for small market.
I use to read this paper online daily and loved it. Now it’s become a “watch our news” videos with ads. Also, half of the news is now in spanish. If I wanted to read a spanish paper, wouldn’t I subscribe to one? “Hey, there’s an article I want to read, oh wait, I can’t read it, they only posted the spanish version.” It’s maddening!
Horrible. Why is it in Spanish ? I don’t read Spanish.
Who put this app together ? A bunch of 3rd graders could do better than this. With all the craziness going on in the valley and the world you would think that the valley news leader (lol) Could put together a news apps that actually works. What a joke.
This app used to be very we'll put together. Ever since the update, local news is no longer the first thing we see, it's mixed in with other news and is a little hard to find. The new layout is way too busy. Change it back please!!!
(1) pics too large, harder to soft through headlines (2) one ad banner was enough, but 2?! At least offer a paid option to get rid of the ads... Feels like I going to have a seizure with all the flashing an blinking ads while I'm trying to read
The Seven Day Outlook should be changed more than once a week! Current Conditions seem to always differ from other stats, apparently no one at the station pays any attention. Currently, the temperature is 68 degrees. The prediction is a low of 82. Rain is a 40-50 percent chance unless you believe the forecast!
It's sad that I can get more on point, correct & detailed news from KCAL9 app regarding the Coachella Valley than our local news. To make it worse you have to wait through 20 sec political campaign ads prior to EVERY story. Not to mention slow updates, misspelling, etc.
