I get up early every morning, and I enjoy so much the morning crew, Erika, Lane and Katie. I get all the information I need to start my day. The happy, positive way the news & weather is presented is just what I need. I especially love it when Erika & Katie get tickled laughing. Keeping light, tight & bright. I can’t thank you all enough for brining this team into my home every morning. I love the Facebook posts too. I wish all of you a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
Please let me start by saying this review is about the app NOT the crew at KLTV. The entire crew there is the best in TX. I absolutely love their dedication and passion to East Texas. About 4-5 update ago this app just turned down hill horrible. It became cluttered with adds everywhere and very clunky to us. I used to read the news every night while in bed but no longer do. Pictures are no longer expandable when you open an article, for instance this morning there is an article about a bank robbery in Tyler and has a picture from surveillance. However I can not click on it to open it and zoom in. The other one that just gets me is recently with all the bad weather I have been using the “watch live” alert when tornados have been approaching. Having to watch a 30 second commercial so KLTV can make a buck could cost someone their life. Again like I said we absolutely love all the staff and wish the app was more user friendly so we could return to using it more.
I love the morning news with the whole crew especially Erica B,I saw her at berg field park on the day the Florida massacre happened,she was setting up her equipment and I walked up to introduce myself and my partner Ron and told her she was doing a great job and the guy from Porto Rico and he said see Erica people do watch you we started to talk about my life partner and said he was half porto Rico and we had A quick conversation,me and Ron continues watching you Erica.
KLTV is notorious for writing something vagus such as fire trucks or police where on the scene. (which in my opinion is not news) 24 hours later - two weeks later there is rarely an update (why there is a scene is the news!) I turned off KLTV notifications and access via cell service due to this! I have survived for two years plus without KLTV in my life but read the news today and felt enough is enough! Now I will just delete the KLTV app and move on with my life!
Sometimes I can get this app to work on my phone and sometimes it won’t.... and then it will freeze up, and not allow me to close it or anything, so I have to delete the app and reinstall it and start all over. I don’t know why. It’s very frustrating, because it always happens when I want to catch the midday news.😫. I keep trying, but it defeats the purpose.
KLTV news is usually spot on. The editorial content is representative of what actually occurred. The station is sometimes a little slow about getting the word out, but they have clear, concise content. They usually don’t pay their news reporters very much, which is why they are slow.
Ads ads and more ads. Even with the new “amazing” update. You open the app and half the screen is an ad. You click a story and it has more ads. Then at the bottom of the story there is “recommended” pages which are just click bait designed to get you to visit other peoples pages and see ads there to line their pockets. Many times those “recommended” pages are not even appropriate. Clean up your act!
I see less coverage on weekends. But also Not adequate coverage on issues such as the suspected active shooting incident at Walmart on highway 64. I didn’t hear anything from the news about it even after my own company was on lockdown due to that very incident. As a matter of fact several neighboring businesses were on lockdown or closing early. But other local citizens like my parents didn’t even know because of lack of news coverage.
your app is so overburdened with paid advertisements the average user cannot respond to or view ANY alerts that are posted. you’re just too darned greedy for paid ads the general public is unable to view important subject matter. Take it down ! we can’t even see it. !! Click on any story and the spin wheel appears and runs constantly. Very Poor App
The app automatically sets my location to Andover, MA even though I have it set to current location. I delete Andover, but very time I restart the app, it comes back. Otherwise, great local weather app.
I understand that KLTV must have ads to pay for online app - but there are so many ads and pop ups that I can’t even find a continuation of a story much less read to the end. Terrible! KLTV app is very important to me for LOCAL news and weather. You can do better than this KLTV!
It appears to be getting hung playing adds. Frustrating have to restart app over and over. Avoid watching in full screen mode, app freezes up every time. It seems that this app worked great long time ago till they added ads. I understand that KLTV is being funded by ads, but this needs to be fixed. Other news apps don’t have this problem. Every know and then I’ll go back and start using this app hoping the issues are fixed, but was disappointed again. Decided to leave feedback for the first time hoping someone from KLTV will read it and take action to get this resolved.
The latest update has made it very frustrating to try to read the news. Ads pop up at every tough and trying to get to actual news is hard. Layout for each headline is not helpful. Please put it back to the way it was before!
When this app first started, you only had to watch a commercial when first opening the app. Now you must endure an ad with every news story! It is very aggravating and makes you resent the advertisers!!! I find that I use the app far less because of this!
Been watching for 10 minutes now and all I have seen is commercials and will be right back came on for three seconds bout be back in 60 seconds just came back on for 5 seconds then nothing. You can waste your time but there other apps with news.
I hate the new update . I know it’s suppose to be better but I loved the old version I got the local news I wanted it was simple . Now it seems complicated and I feel like it’s more national than local stories .
Several articles have "Content Unavailable" when opened. Poor article editing - grammatical errors abound beyond simple punctuation. Very difficult to believe the accuracy of the articles when I can't get past the illiteracy, in a time when media scrutinization is at an all time high.
I loved the app before the update. It really slow and the pages keep sliding back to main page without touching it. Please take the update off. I’m going to uninstall app if this issue keeps happening.
No one can still spell. When you scroll over the stories, same stories listed three times. Guess it’s like newspaper on want ads, makes it look more full if you repeat stuff. Some of these stories look like a 3rd grader wrote them.
You use to have a 7 day forecast. Since the app update on mobile phone it’s gone. How do I find it? I’m traveling and want to get weather updates for rain. I’m very disappointed unless you can tell me how to pull it up. I tried and it gave me 2014!
I have always enjoyed KLTV local news. It is my ONLY news source but the new format is not as user friendly. I cannot find a help section or Q&A. I get one new article a day but no more. What is the problem?
