You guys are the best!! Only thing is once in a while you’ll say you will follow up on a story but we never get it!! But you are great with local news, news near our areas, and national news!! GREAT JOB to the weather team!! Thank you MawMaw Jean
I enjoy having access to the mobile app, but the site isn’t updated often enough and a lot of the time seems I’m reading old news. The weekends it seems nothing is added and lately I just avoid looking at it for that reason! I enjoyed the older version v/s new updated version in appearance anyway bc the time and date information was posted with the article submitted. Love KPLC news, keep up the good work guys!
There was only one problem that I encountered recently—some of the headlines had a black font with a dark blue background that was difficult to read, but that has been cleared up, apparently—they do a great job on their mix of stories both local and national and they are outstanding on weather and traffic-thanks again—-Mike R.
Neither my fiancé’ nor I like the latest update on the app. This new version is not as user friendly as the previous. Seems to have more congestion, less “flow” from story to story. Also, we’ve noticed an increase in the advertisements. We both enjoy being to keep up with the news on our cell phones as work schedules and life prohibit us from sitting in front of a TV during news broadcast hours. Possible to find a happy medium between the previous app layout and the new??? 😬
New update doesn’t provide news in easy to read format
With the new update it’s much harder to view the news stories. As you scroll thru you see the same news story multiple times listed. And there are so many advertisements there is no pattern now In the news feed. It’s just chaotic and unorganized. In the past I opened this app multiple times per day, if the news isn’t easy to see I won’t be using this app near as frequent. Please bring back the older version.
I have noticed that there has been a lot of inconsistencies in timely local news updates. Today (9-9-22) @ 11:00am there are no new local news updates. Same as yesterday. I live several states away, but like to keep up with what is going on in my home area. This seems to be an ongoing problem.
There is still screen tearing while scrolling through the newsfeed, after the latest update. I use an iPhone 13 Pro. Please fix this. It makes using the app unnecessarily unpleasant. Reading the news shouldn’t cause eye discomfort. I give 3 stars because the layout of everything else is great.
I used to love the app. Could get all my local news without having to go to on a website. Now the app sends you a notification and when you click on it you are brought to the app then redirected to their website. If I wanted to go to their website I would but I don’t. I also don’t like the new layout of it it’s not very organized.
I do not like this update on the kplc app. For one thing I saw the same add 5 times on the homepage. What was wrong with the old app? It was easy to use and did not have the same adds repeating 3 to 5 times an the home page. Also there are way to many adds on the homepage.
This use to be a great app. But recently it is hardly every updated for what is happening now or just was on the news. No info on community events in a timely manner. News stories are from a month ago. And the news on the tv is all fluff never things happening in our town only in the rest of the country. Not the good news and reports it use to be
Version 6.6.4 worked great. Then they updated the whole app. Personally, I find the tile-layout on the home screen to be too much. There’s so many fonts and colors, it’s all distracting. There’s just too much going on. I understand what they were trying to do, but I think more uniformity would have helped make it easier to use. And anytime I click the bell icon, then click a notification to view, I get kicked out of the app and can’t view any notifications. Frustrating.
A little too much lean toward Democrat liberal extremes. I do not like our President disrespected by anyone... no matter who our president is. There’s enough liberal extreme nasty views everywhere. A little less on our local venues would be nice.. even the tone of headlines is starting to make me feel ‘enough’!
Last update broke/removed the picture-in-picture functionality while watching live broadcasts. It’s important b/c people have to use their phones or control lights in the morning while the newscast is on. Is there any QC any more?
This app is even more buggy than it was before the update. Can’t get videos to play the ads just repeat when they are finished. If I’m lucky enough to get the news video to play once I turn my phone to the side it stops and plays another ad.
Have to agree with previous reviews. Terrible update. No longer use this for news. So few news stories, so many ads. If you like Fox non-news, you’ll like it. If you prefer actual news like CNN, don’t bother to update...just delete it.
It would be so nice if KPLC would prioritize their alerts. Traffic congestion is very important especially at 8:00 am and 5:00pm. The only alerts we got today around 5:00pm was about Will Wade. Prioritize please!!
You don’t report ALL local news, your app is always the same stories from days before, instead of updating to daily news you just add one new story ....much more news to report that isn’t ever reported! Why is that? Why aren’t you reporting ALL local news????
👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻 This new updated app has WAY TOO MUCH junk in it. It’s like it’s throwing EVERYTHING IN YOUR FACE, I liked the old app where it showed the stories and weather was easy to access but looking at this app is stressful. It looks like whoever created this was an amateur and tried to just shove everything in instead of paying attention to detail.
Do like the updated version, you do not include first alert weather written forecast in news or weather. I do not like the changes you have made and must go elsewhere to find what I am looking to learn.
I like being able to access my local news. However, I’d much rather push my fingers through my eyes than have to close an ad every 3rd or 4th “story” I try to read. Come on KPLC, do you really need the extra funding from the ads? Deleting this nuisance.
The app once was pretty functional. Very easy to use, click on app and the news. Now it’s an absolute train wreck. Works when it wants to, irrelevant content, can’t open app without an ad, whomever designed this one, I’d ask for a refund.
So tired of all the ads!!! All I want is to read the news not open the app, click the x to close an advertisement, then be scared to death because an ad for a casino game starts blaring over my speaker! You can do better than this KPLC!
The newest update is busy and the alert sounds are awful. I plan to uninstall the app if nothing is done about the sounds. I can adjust to the new look as change is inevitable, but the sound.... ahhhhh.
The older version of the KPLC app was very easy to navigate. This new version is complicated to maneuver through and there are 10 times as many ads to sift through. It wasn’t broken, didn’t need fixing.
