I love knwa app. Since downloading this app. I’m more addictive to the weather and what watch for. I think we have the best weather team around. Dan is always keeping us informed what’s going on with our area or what’s coming our way. I’ve learned a lot from the weather team. The news cast from early morning or evening or weekend they keep us informed. I just want to say BIG THANK YOU !!
KNWA does a nice job of pushing really big local news alerts without bombarding you with a dozen alerts per day. That’s actually one of the best things about the app. When I click on a notification, the accompanying video sometimes has more information than the text in the article. This is a bit of a drawback, because I’m often in long meetings where I can’t watch the video, but everyone takes a few minutes to get a drink, stretch their legs, check email (and news, for me). Also, they don’t post many smaller news articles each day, so this isn’t the best source for all local news, just breaking news and weather. It really comes down to what you want, and for me it’s a good balance of breaking local news, but others may find it lacking.
This app is the best, I love it that you can watch the video clips of the news without having to watch a commercial before every clip like other station apps are. I’ve started using this app only, just because of that. Thanks, Good Job
New design is somewhat confusing and seems to limit ability to just read text of story. Buffers on my phone like internet. Rechecked my notifications settings and only improved slightly. Ads placement is about the same. It has been a better news app for this area over the years but technology changes things.
Great news, sports and weather team but terrible app
I’m a big fan of KNWA but the app is really bad. There is a full page ad, when you first access the site that must be flicked closed to actually reach the site. FULL SCREEN. It is easy to flick the app closed as opposed to closing the ad. The stories are not updated as often as other local news networks. I’ll continue tuning in to KNWA in the evenings but the other online options for local news are better IMO.
I live in a little community call Bass, it southeast of Jasper about 10 miles I appreciate the weather reports and warnings I get from KNWA Living in Rogers for 35 years I still get local news from the area, especially when schools are being reported on since I have grandkids in the Bentonville and PEA Ridge school district. So thanks to You KNWA I can still get news on my iPhone and severe weather alerts.
I love the KNWA weather app. Dan Skoff has amazing skills as a meteorologist. I find Dan Skoff’s ability to forecast the weather quite accurate along with the fact that God is ultimately in control ! 😀
I am surprised by the lack of innovative change with KNWA. I am not sure if their just broke or do not have the knowledge to implement such a feature. Live News is what is in now with how many Americans receive their news. Other news markets have it and I advise NWA to use their apps to see how nice it is to have such a feature where you are, when you need it.
So they will give you a lead story on something. Let’s say an arrest with investigation and at the end they will say. More information coming. So that’s about where they end it. There is never a follow up (ever). And all the news is basically depressing. Why can’t they find some good things to post about. It’s always pretty much bad stuff.
I don’t like this app much because it does not give you enough info about the days weather. It only gives the temperature and I’m not interested in the news just the weather. There is never info about the wind strength or what direction it will be blowing which is important to where we live.
I no longer can watch your station because of the ongoing feud with Nexstar vs AT&T. Not very happy with either party. My television watching consists of Ch5, PBS, and Netflix. Your station, if it ever returns, will be on a short leash.
Please report the news and let us figure out how to interpret it without interjecting your liberal opinions. You guys have gotten very bad about doing this. There are conservatives who enjoy watching the news as well.
GREAT News, weather & sports app! Plus everything else! Example, the gas price checker is enclosed on this app. I have never used because of lack of connivence, I will now. Sports has it all, the Razorback Nation, and pro sports broke down by teams. And the weather app is second to none! That you just need to check out!! Your IT really put did themselves on this new app!! Great work, y'all!!
The app does what it should and works well overall. However, KNWA doesn't have much discernment in what they seem to be notification worthy. I finally had to shut off all notifications because they were going off all day. What should be used for breaking news is used for programming highlights (really, KNWA?!), sports draft updates, etc. This morning, I received 9 notifications in less than 40 minutes that were all sports related! I'm not anti-sports, but notifications should be for urgent breaking news. There weren't 9 urgent stories this hour! They should consider that a notification should be for urgent headlines and send all the other junk to social media. Download away, but be careful about using their notifications. Your phone won't stop buzzing...
Love all the additional weather tabs! The scroll bar makes it super easy to navigate and the increase in amount of articles is perfect. Thanks for the tap to send pics and videos, it makes it really easy to send them in
I love the new KNWA Mobil App it's great, and I appreciate what you all are doing. You can see the weather, radar a lot easy on the new app than the old one. Keep up the good work and have a safe week.
I am very pleased ignore the other reviews and stick with this it is a much better ui and the weather portion is greatly improved the tv seven day is just fine. if you don't want to see that download the KNWA weather authority app
I don't want news from Little Rock, Hot Springs, Booneville, etc. I live in Benton county and am looking for local news. The station name and app description is kNWA so I expect news from Benton, Washington and Carroll county. I would like an option to filter out Fort Smith and other non NWA locations.
