App needs help
OK, you guys asked for feedback. So I’ll give you some. Our family finds your app to be somewhat pleasing to the eye, but very difficult to navigate, and not very user-friendly. Would you consider revamping your app so that each section has a small explanation of what each icon stands for? For example, what is Colo cares, what is live stream? I also don’t see any section for traffic information. Perhaps this would help

Good but basic
Great app for reading local news. It is limited in its ease and use. There should be notifications or a daily/weekly story of upcoming events in the news section. I read the app every day, sometimes multiple times, and always see events as they are happening or after they have happened. I would love to participate more but 30 minutes prior to an event is usually too late, and after the event is impossible, for now...

Limited Functionality
This app needs an overhaul! Further one of the most obvious functions is missing and that is the capability to zoom! You can't see anything in the pictures and you can't zoom in to see better or see details. Poorly designed app!

Spam and poor design
All this app does is stream Spam and popup or video advertising. Between the pop up ads every time you start up the app, and the adds on videos and story's, the app is unusable. You cant even watch proprietary videos without an minimum15 second add. In app features have also been removed and replaced with links that open up to Safari.

Ads before you can view any news
This app started out ok, But now you are required to view ads and watch ads before you can do anything else. Horrible!

Latest very bad
The latest version just sits on the opening page and the little gear just spins. Tried deleting it and re downloading nothing worked. Has now gone from the ads making it really annoying to being completely unsuitable for purpose.

Broken and Confusing
Doesn’t even open with iOS 14.6. Too many ads that are presented as legitimate news stories and they don’t support large text. Just a really lazy app. Too bad they don’t care more about our community but that has been their trend over the last two years.

Just became totally worthless
Can’t get past the ads to get to the news. Having ads in the list with the news is one thing. I can click on one if I am interested but forcing me to click on an ad before I can even get access to the news screen is too much. Time to move to channel 4 news.

Late night notice.
To get notifications is one thing but to get notified late at night over a speech the governor faces hours before is crap. Sorry I’m loosing sleep for that. But I am deleting the app so I don’t loose sleep.

Ad Fail!
I open the app to see the news and all I see as a full page ad for Saint Mary’s that I can’t get past. The only actions that result are taking me to a web page for saint mary’s. What good is an app for news if you can’t see the news, but only an ad? Not any good at al to me.

It changed
I loved this app at one point. My biggest issue is the fact that we no longer have a voice on the site. Where did the ability to comment on stories go???????

Can’t tell what’s REAL news and what is an ad
If there was an award for worst news app, this should win. So much click bait and ads it’s tough to tell what is really news and what is an ad. This app is SO bad it makes me not even want to watch their news broadcast.

What happened?
The app used to be great. Now they took away your ability to comment, I'm assuming because they just don't like discussion. These advertisements on this went up tenfold. It's like all you can find anymore is Clickbait.

So so
Best thing about this app is the earthquake feature. It would be a great improvement if you could adjust the time zone from EST to PST. And why can’t I add Vancouver BC to the weather?

Somewhat disappointing
When it works, it's ok, but... I'm most interested in the live stream. The problem is, too often it doesn't, and we get no feedback that there is a problem (yes I know, a blank screen is feedback). I'm pretty sure, based on the fact all other feeds I have are working at the time of the failure with this app, that it isn't a problem on my end. It would seem to me a simple task to program the app to at least display that the stream is down. At least then I would know for sure it wasn't at my end. But all that aside, I can't trust this to be there for me each morning. That's a problem. You don't build loyal viewers with a hit and miss setup. Another suggestion, when you do get the live cast stable, it would be nice if you had more choice, in the event one misses the live cast, it would be nice to be able to watch the "last live cast". We don't have to back any further than that.

Click-bait links and ads.
Everything is plastered with click bait stories and ads. All I want is local news but that is apparently too much to expect.

This used to be a more centered app compared to the other local ones. Now the "stories" have changed dramatically and they eliminated the comment section, so I'm deleting it.

So the weather forecast always says something different than what the broadcast.... it's not like they are slow to update the app.... it's just they never seem too.... it's really frustrating.... I've commented on dace book and emailed them and it seems like it all gets swept under the rug... it makes it really hard to plan for the day when the broadcast is saying up to a foot of snow but the app is saying warmer temps and just rain....

It's great having an app for our local area to get the latest on what's going on around town. So far, so good. However, one improvement should be a back button. I've noticed it's a challenge to go back to the previous page. Instead, I have to pull down the menu and go to the front page and basically start over, at least from my experience.

I'm planning to move to Tahoe in a couple of years. I downloaded this app to get a feel of what is happening locally. I have been incredibly pleased with all of the information I've been given. Thank you!
