Oracle weather
I don’t know how or where you get your feedback or information concerning the weather but you need to rethink it! The wind here is so much worse than Tucson is ever! And yet you show it as being a breeze. Check your sources please!!!

Clear and concise relevant news
I don’t have to wade through a bunch of irrelevant fluff to get to the interesting stuff. No one proofreads anymore though. I wish I could get paid for every typo I find. I think everyone expects their computer to catch the errors. Old fashioned proofreading is still a good thing. This is still a good place to go to keep up with worthy news.

Used to love app now it’s ceap
Used to like your app and weather especially. But now radar takes forever to load it’s confusing and too many ads. Definitely liked old version better. Upset I had to update app because now it constantly freezes especially checking weather. And ads in background makes it hard to read stories they interfere or won’t load. Sorry your improvement makes me want to uninstall because you made it more cluttered and not appealing instead of improving app

Repetitive political commercials
App works great great. I travel and take my Apple TV device with me which has my kgun app on it so I can keep in touch with Tucson news. But I can’t watch it! It goes to commercial break and it will be the same negative political ad that is local to the state I’m visiting over and over and over. It is beyond frustrating. It’s like you’re trying to make us delete the app and move on. Just don’t understand why.

Lousy commercials
I guess the positive is u get to see the local news but the crappy thing is that u have to put up w a ridiculous Amt of commercials. I absolutely hate all of the “sponsored content “. Ridiculously stupid developers think people actually click on those ? I avoid those at all costs, and would never click those, (even if they appealed to me) out of sheer contempt for them.

Updates often
KGUN updates their news app much more often than the others. Easy to use and always current, this is the news app to have in Tucson.

Great app that works great
I used to watch the KVOA weather app. It never worked anytime I wanted to watch the news. I would have to watch on tv. Then someone recommended to me this app. It works so well! I love it!

Simple Local News
This app is a simple conduit for catching up on both national and local news and weather by either reading it or with short videos.

sometimes a bit careless
It drives me nuts when a NEWS article has usage and/or spelling errors and then fails the 'who, what, where, when, why' test of professional reporting.

I am happy to have found this app on my tablet because living in Bisbee, local news is not as readily available. Now I can see what is happening faster. Thank you

Keeping up with local news
Kgun’s app is fast and accurately reports the news. If the story is “breaking “, they make sure to tell you. Follow-up is pretty good. Also, timely push notifications on new stories.

Good Morning
KGUN begins my day. Before climbing out of bed in the AM I scan the news. It’s usually pretty balanced. I had a couple of other news apps and deleted them.

Correct designation
Please tell your sports readers that in baseball when a batter is hit it is simply called ‘hit by pitch’. On the other hand when a batter is hit in the head it is called being ‘beaned’. On tonite broadcast the male reporter said the Atlanta Braves batter who was hit by pitch in the left arm was “beaned”. He was not...he was hit by a pitch. There is a world of difference.

Terrible design
The UI is terrible. Something I’d expect in the mid-2010s. Watching any videos/media associated with a story, sound, doubled stories (why not just update the original?), and searching for relevant stories. It’s not intuitive in the slightest. You open the app and get just a random list of stories. Unorganized, no top stories or design changes.

Every video has a commercial?
Every video you watch on the app has a commercial before you get to see the story. How about showing one commercial every-time you open the app instead of every story click ?

Ultra right lies in an ad represented by KGUN 9
False bias political statements in an ad do not belong on a news app. I was stunned to see a large ad stating “The left politics want illegals to draw from Social Security...” I promptly removed the app. I didn’t know KGUN 9 would allow such a false statement, a political bias ad that is allowed to represent KGUN 9; it is a symptom of the systemic infection from the ultra right. Shameful.

Little News mostly ADs
This App is a commercial haven if you like commercials than this is a 4 star app. It starts with no less than 4 commercials then you get 2 stories then 4 commercials a true waste of the viewers time...UNLESS you enjoy ADs terrible.

Not that good anymore
For years I watched KGUN, personnel losses and not so good replacements have turned me off. Add in the number of commercials and the Liberal Political position makes it over the edge. A lot of coverage of the Muslim’s killed in NZ, not a mention of the Christians killed in the Phillipines

Rare updates
As I’m writing this it is just after noting that while it is Thursday articles are all from Monday…as is the daily forecast. Basically a useless news app.

Nice bit of news.
I would like to give it 5 stars. However, there are no follow updates to the incidents reported. Having links to them would put this over the top. This app is far deserving than the one star it has received.

What's the point of having an app when it just redirects you to their mobile website inside the app when you click in news? The mobile site is junk. You can only see one article at a time. There are more ads and they appear more frequently. They're bigger ads too. I even had one ad pop up right on top of another ad that was already open. It took up about 1/4 of my screen so I could see even less of the article I wanted to read. Please just go back to the old way of listing articles. It takes forever to scroll through and find any that I might want to read. Before I could see them all in a matter of seconds. I'm extremely dissatisfied with this app. I like to get my local news from multiple sources but KVOA may be my only choice if KGUN 9 doesn't do something about this.

two or three little problems
When this app is running it hides the connection indication at the top of the "normal" screen so you have no way to determine if you are still connected with wifi or are getting the data through the 3G connection. This is important for people who live or work near a wifi connection and who fear the consequence$ of running over their data limit. The second thing is common to this sort of app in that the mini headlines are not written for an iPhone screen. That scarce screen space is also eaten up by a "web producer" credit on each and every item and a reoprter's byline. It's an INDEX, not an article. Sloppy.

Great Job!
Thank you to journalists working daily/nightly bringing news to the public. We need the Free Press now more than ever...keep working, you are so appreciated by me and many, many others. Remember, whenever you hear "...I hate the Press..." it really means they hate how well you are doing your job!

I really like the layout and on the iPhone the icons fill the screen nicely. Its different from other news app and it actually has content that works. It gives you the option to select news, weather, video etc quickly. Good job.

Definitely a 5 Star App
Download this app and I PROMISE you won't regret it. All your local and national news right at your fingertips. Kgun9 is one of my favorite apps that I have and use daily for breaking news, they alert me when they are live and I have emailed them in the past with concerns about seeing fire trucks and paramedics down and around my aunts house and they responded to me immediately. Thank you kgun9 for all your hard work in giving us the best news around town. We truly appreciate you all.

Recent update
I have been very dissatisfied with this app since the recent update. The app takes a long time to load. The news portion is bombarded with ads and the layout is poor. Also, when you actually choose to read a news story and then push the back button it takes you back to the main menu, then you have to select news and wait for it to load again. This app has become a waste of time and waste of space on my phone.

I have been a very satisfied user of this app. I did not enjoy AZ Star newspaper app after dropping subscription to Tuscan's newspaper. Going 'paperless', use my iPhone to catch weather and radar during monsoon season. And, later catch up on the local news using this good app with my iPad. Peter Miller Tucson

100,000 times better than last offering
The previous app that I reviewed was good. I noted the poor weather interface. The update/redesign is really exceptional. Very clean, and uncluttered. That said, those who update content do a woeful job. Better app than the past, potential to be much better. Currently, at best only serviceable.

Nice but...
Enjoy the app. But would be better if they would put a few more news items on the app. Better format, more videos. Would be great if you would live stream your newscast on the app as other local stations do.
