Alerts preferences
I want the ability to turn off traffic notifications. You have it so we can select many other categories, but it looks like traffic alerts fall under breaking news or something and it should be its own thing. I am tired of irrelevant I25 alerts blowing up my phone everyday. Also, you should work on getting things to link together better. It is not uncommon for me to click on a push alert about one thing, only to be taken to a page that has nothing to do with what the push alert was.

NOT a fan of the ads that have audio when I open the app
When I open the app and an ad appears before the news home page is one thing, and not a problem, but when there’s audio along with it, it’s beyond annoying. If I don’t remember to turn off the volume before I open the app, the noise from the ad can be startling and disrupting I’m ready to uninstall the news app and look for local news somewhere else

New weather maps on your news casts
We live along Highway 24 in Calhan. I drive to Parker everyday for work. You have removed highway 24 from your weather maps during your news casts. If I’m not mistaken the small towns along this stretch of highway are part of “Southern Colorado”. You guys are great and I have been loyal to your station since we moved out here but, I’m sure I am not alone in needing this information along this route to provide safety and awareness for my family and livestock. Please add this important trucking route back to your weather maps on your news casts. It seemed your station was the only one that cared about the small towns in our region. Has that changed? I would hope not. Thank you John Kontrelos

Alerts are useless
I finally turned all alerts off from this app. More often than not, there will be an alert, flag or notice so I bring up the app. I CANNOT determine what the notice was for! Just the standard app page. So what am i being alerted about? Today was last straw. Alert flashed - complete with chimes - I 70 closed. Well that I need to follow as I need to travel soon. Go to app. Nothing, nada, zippo on I70 being closed. Useless and a distraction.

Great product
I like the function of the app. The notifications are good, let’s me know what to expect and when to expect it as far as weather goes. Traffic notifications are awesome, as we all know the commute to Denver can be dicey at times. All other alerts give me a heads up of what is going in the COS area and outside the COS area.

Wow how the mighty have fallen
When I first downloaded this app about 2 years ago it was the best news app I had ever found. Slowly it’s been harder and harder to get to the actual news stories. Then the list of news got smaller and smaller. Then you couldn’t comment on articles. And now when you open it there’s ads right away. Like they don’t get enough money on the tv. So in short they have fallen to a subpar news app and I question if any of the content is viable. RIP KKTV you have forgotten how to care for your customer.

Not for use with hearing aids connected to your phone
The app. Is ok but they need a volume control for the volume of the breaking news alerts. No matter how you set your hearing aid volume breaking news alerts are at full volume and causes discomfort. I will be turning off ALL alerts until a volume comtrol for alerts is added

Stooping to New Low - Anything for Money
So now KKTV is allowing their advertisers to force their customers into participating in polls before being allowed to proceed to their news content. Today you cannot get into content unless you either agree to sign a petition to “enforce the law” with regard to immigration, or to click “no thanks.” Either way you have participated in a poll and I don’t think that’s wise to allow yourself to be forced into. So both the app and the station are trash, basically.

Gannon live news brief
I always get the alert about a live news brief or an update. I open it to read or watch but it is never there. I have to go hunt it down. Today I clicked on the menu for live news and I got a commercial. I’m learning to ignore your news site and go directly to Fox 21 if I want to watch the live news. Their notifications go straight to the source without a commercial. I missed the first 3 minutes of the DA talking just awhile ago.

No longer a neutral news channel.
What I want from a news channel is simple... THE FACTS and nothing more. I want to base my own opinion not be pushed in the direction the writer wants me to believe.... It has been clear over the last year that this news channel has completely given up on reporting and gone with lobbying for what they believe. I am deleting this app and will never come back.. KKTV Is no longer reputable. Good by to many years for following you

I like the current updates this app gives. However, all the breaking news alerts are not put on top but are mixed in with the other updates. You have to scroll through what you’ve already read to find it. Very frustrating.

What's up with this app?
I loved this app and referred to it several times a day. Now, the format has changed, and I am forced to watch an ad every time I change pages. You can’t opt out or leave. You have to watch the whole Long thing REPEATEDLY. It’s infuriating. I’m deleting this app until you fix this. The other stations are doing a much better job. Whose idea was this anyway? Fire that person, or transfer them to maintenance.

I used to like App. Now, I have to weed through all the national news to find the 1 or 2 local stories. I have national news apps for a reason, but I would like to see some local news. Also, there are so many ads now, especially if I want to watch a video news story. I would rather pay for an app just to get the ads to go away. Time to switch news stations and delete this app

No story to go with alerts
What drives me crazy is that I'll get an alert but when you go to the app, you can't find info about the alert, or even re-read the alert. It's just gone. There should be a page that links directly to an alert.

I use for notifications only I don’t trust their news
Half the national stories that they report are written by CNN a very biased news network I don’t trust. Never heard them report anything pro America first. Not very happy with any of the local news networks in Colorado Springs

Useless notifications
Like I’ve seen other say the notifications are a useless distraction. When you click to see more Information about it the app opens and there’s nothing about it. I’ve also been trying to follow the daily news from here and nothing just the same old news from days before.

Was great, not anymore
Used this app all the time but now they shuffled all the news into separate sections and nothing but live feeds which is rather annoying and wastes my time just to see headlines so deleting it. Was much easier to use when all the news was in a single news section! Also crashes from time to time!

I get lost. Every. Time.
It’s nice to get notified of important stuff. It’s frustrating to click the teaser, and get dumped onto a home screen with categories of ALL the day’s news options. “Now WHERE might this story be hiding?” Wouldn’t it be nice to go right from the notification to the story?

App is ok, but whenever there is a suspect or missing person and there's a picture, the picture is too small on my phone and you can't zoom in on any of the pics to see them better.

Good News Not Reported
High school students who are getting to sign are not acknowledged by name. An event that is a big deal for the families and community downplayed by KKTV. Who accomplished these awards? Community servants and citizens that were in a position to step up and stand up for their community are slighted by not being acknowledged by name and event for what they did. Why mention the event at all?

Constant Crashes
This app was ok, though loaded with bogus ADs, until now. At this point the app is worthless as it crashes as soon as anything is clicked. It loads, presents you with the dashboard of news areas, then you click the headlines or a menu item and watch the app go all black and die. Oh well, at least KRDO maintains their software.

App use to be good.
When the app first started it was a great way to see the news and what’s going on. Now not so much. I use another app to get the news because I shouldn’t have to watch an advertisement to see the news. It’s just crazy. But hey I guess they need to make money any way they can.. however it is sad because it was a very good app.

To many notifications that I don’t care about. Who in the right mind would equate Hollywood fluff stories and Breaking News. Really!?!? I could care less about that kind of worthless news. Save breaking news and it’s alert notifications for what is relevant and important.

App gone downhill
It used to be a good source for news and weather, but the ads have ruined it. Today I clicked on Current News and got an ad for a $35,000 loan and there was no way to close the ad. Very frustrating so until you do something about the ads, I will only use the KOAA app.

Not reliable
The app continually shuts down when viewing. I have switched to KRDO app for reliability. I had preferred 11 news over all others but living out east, we need a provider we can count on working to give us the news and weather timely and accurately.

Ever heard of proofreading??
I am so appalled at the misspelling and convoluted sentence construction that I miss out on the actual content of the stories. When one considers all the technology available today, it’s inexcusable.

Tricky Ads
When you open the app, there’s an ad immediately. Right away the ad shows an “x” to close it at the top left, then a second or two later that “x” switches to the top right so you actually clicked the ad. What trickery to make some money. Sad.

Two-seasonal use for banner
Convert opening page to winter-closings and snow-delay; summer/fall-fire danger or no outside cooking with open flame. Just a thought and suggestion.

Useless alerts
Your alerts used to be helpful. Now , I get them all day , for pretty much nothing. And why do you guys need to alert me at 5am to tell me to watch the news ?? I watch it when I'm up ... which is not at 5! I'll be removing this app and get useful info elsewhere.

Horrible reporting.
Stop trying to make the news. Report the FACTS and that’s it. Don’t put your stupid spin on it. Example: A car rolls over. Report that. Don’t say the car rolled over because a democrat is in office.

Not very useful
Usually the weather update news are several hours old. Not live. So is not useful when weather start changing, or to know going on. Much better other apps out there.

Notifications are much less timely, relevant, and informative than before. Notifications to “tune in and see what’s happening” are not helpful. Recently, notifications are going straight to ads. For these reasons, I will delete this app.
