Thank you for your constant coverage of the storm. Videoing outside in the freezing conditions shows your dedication to your viewers. Because of your predictions I was able to prepare just in case we lost power. So far we’re good. It is easy to cope and make good decisions when we know what is going on. We shovelled 8 “ of icy snow off our deck. We live on a hill behind St. Vincent’s. Thank you to your TV crew. Karen Davis

Very poor update.
The latest update turned this app from friendly and usable to a very unstable, barely functioning app, overloaded with long repeating ads that just randomly start playing. The top stories are almost never current. The live feature to watch the news and good day Oregon used to be a bit glitchy, busy at least worked most of the morning. This new app can’t even make it through one commercial break without freezing or you’ll see a never ending load circle. There are no longer video controls, so then you have to reload the app, just to have it happen again. In theory, the new menu should make the app easier to use, but just the opposite has happened. I will have to delete this app and no longer watch good day Oregon! 😢. Bye Shawna and Kim, Andy and Tony. I grew up with you guys. We don’t have cable anymore so this was our link to good people and quality news. No more.

New update is terribly disappointing
I’m not one to give negative reviews… but I’m finding out this new version of the app to be a massive letdown. Several of the features I’ve come to rely on for simple news and weather access seem to have disappeared. For example: where’s the 7-day weather forecast? Also, I really dislike how news articles are followed by advertisement “articles” that are presented to look exactly like the news stories! Paid advertisements should look distinct from news, so viewers don’t assume that they’re something they’re not. That’s basic journalistic integrity. I sincerely hope FOX 12 revises the app soon. I’ve used the FOX 12 app for years. But sadly, I’m not finding it to be an effective way to get the news anymore. I’m afraid I may need to resort to a different station for news, even though I’d rather stay with this one, largely because I love Mark Nelson’s weather forecasts the best!

Love Fox 12, app is OK but could be great
Good- stream live broadcast to TV via AppleTV works well. Andy Carson and team are the best meteorologists in Portland, with the most consistently accurate weather forecast (not overly sensationalized, just accurate). The layout of the app is perfect. Bad- the ads don’t work properly half the time. I’d love to just watch the forecast every morning, but to do so requires restarting the video two to three times to get past the ad. Offer an ad-free version and I will pay for it. Or at the very least, make sure the ads work and don’t stall the app/video playback.

Frustrating Swipe Left/Right
I absolutely hate it when I am scrolling through an article and I accidentally slide my finger to the left or right. Even a tiny swipe (a few pixels) to the left/right causes the article to reload and sends you straight back to the beginning of the article. Please fix this. Make it so you have to do a larger swipe before the next/previous article loads. Better yet, turn that swipe feature off (or give us a setting to disable it). I can select which article I want to read from the previous menu. PLEASE fix this.

Great App, great news coverage
We don't have access to Portland news on a TV, so use this app to keep up to date on the news. They are quick on updates, and tell an accurate story. I have never had an issue downloading updates with their app, like I have had from other news channels.

Enjoy, but have a problem
Program is very good, but you changed your app and now I can’t reduce the size of the picture and mostly listen, as I usually do. Hence I miss a lot of your coverage when I have other needs to do. And I have to find the spot to turn on after I have turned on your app. I don’t have tv, can’t afford it, so I have internet only. You are the best news station for coverage. Keep that up. Just, please make it as easy to use as it was.

Better than the other local news apps
So much easier to scroll and catch headlines and then decide which to read. Some have gone to the look of the national news stations. Some are way to political and don’t really give me what I want which is “local” news.

Old app was better
I would only use the app for the live stream on my iPad in the mornings while getting ready for work. At some point there was an update that removed the ability to view in landscape mode. This seems like a minor detail but my tablet is unable to be supported upright by its case, so sadly I just stopped using it all together. Live stream isn’t available on the KPTV website, so this has caused me to just go without my dose of local morning news

A must app to have
It’s a must to have when you don’t have the time to sit down and watch tv. You can check the weather to your destination & also the traffic alerts around that area that can save you time and gas money!

Fox News Oregon is Oregon’s best news
I just wanted to thank you for the great news and weather. Not only do you report real and balanced news and excellent weather, traffic and community visits but your wonderful people make it entertaining as well. Keep up the excellent work! And thank you for reporting Santiam Pass weather too. Your team is a gem! We get your show for free down here in Stayton in HD on an inexpensive antenna. Appreciate the expanded weather including Scio, Stayton, Mill City, Detroit and Idanha. Thank you very much ! John Frederic

Thanks for ruining a good app
I loved the older Fox 12 app. I’m on the road and can keep in touch with PDX. Had tons of news stories and categories bi can’t find anything now. There are only 4 or 5 main stories. The old app had tons. This area is no better than the KGW app I stopped using a year ago. The new app is glitchy and very, very slow. It takes forever to load a story I click on. Half the time I give up and close the app. Again, thanks

Watching the news or ads?
I appreciate your news coverage but find it impossible to watch any of the clips on this app because of the constant ad videos and issues mid way through the clip. Sometimes i try several times to watch something and give up out of frustration because of this. Please fix the glitchy ad problem, I’m sure I’m not the only person experiencing this!

Too many dang ads.
When I get to actually watch the news this app is great. Way too many ads. Currently we are at 11 mins of straight commercials and the same ones over and over. I would even pay for an ad free experience because the ads also cut off the news and it is more than annoying.

Fix App.
It is not very user friendly. Scrolling through news stories it tends to force you to open videos and repeats many of the same stories over and over. You may run across a new story in the mix but it’s as if the creator does not use it. Please get a hands on person who is involved with the app and have them and fellow employees use it for a while. It can be very frustrating !

Doesn’t work
I can’t get the app to work. I downloaded it and at the bottom of the screen it says continue so I tried to get it to work by tapping continue but there is a line through it and it will not go to the next page no matter what I try to do. I’ve deleted it twice and re added the app twice now and still won’t work but I got the weather app to work so it’s not me it’s the app.

Traffic Map
I use Your traffic map daily, for many years. I just did Your update. Wow, what a Poor update. I have a I-phone. The screen is hard to operate. What’s with the + & -? It has information from accidents that happened yesterday. Also I don’t like all of the construction icons. They clutter up the view. I won’t be using this application anymore. Bring back the old version. 🥵🥵

I rely on the current news announcements from the Fox 12 app. As I rush through my busy days away from a TV set, my Apple Watch taps my wrist to let me know that Fox has a new item of importance. Great way to keep continually informed while “on the run.

Difficult or Impossible?
I can’t get to todays current new. I got yesterday’s today fairly quickly and wouldn’t have noticed it was yesterdays except it was outside of my short term memory loss. I think it is a horrible wast of everyone’s resources for news shows to advertise themselves. We’re watching you! What’s the purpose of an add?! You are chasing me away. Bible Gateway is more up to date and accurate.

Had this app for years - dumping it
Sorry - but this app is not user friendly. Previously you could scroll through and see news updates quickly and efficiently. Now you have to tap through - too busy to have to hunt down and click through to find what I am looking for.

Weather App
Bring back the weather app! I relied on that app almost daily. I liked being able to just get weather information without having to subject myself to stressful news updates. The weather app was always the first place I would go if I knew a weather event was going to happen. I also liked reading the weather blog. :(

You’ve removed one of the main reasons for a person to look at an up-to-the-minute website. Very short-sighted of you. And drop the constant ads for Covid. We’ve been inundated with them for 2 years.

Progressing toward so-so
Have had this app since it started. Most improvements have been welcomed. I like to read “print” news. E-news is easier than papers. The one dislike that shouldn’t never been allowed is the 2/3 page add that appears as soon as the app opens. It doggedly resists closure. Please offer an add free version. I want to read the news not play “let’s close the add” game!

Just started crashing hard. Open to crash in under 2 seconds, right after the spam advertising comes up. Generally a good news app except for the 30sec commercials and clickbait and popup advertising that seems to think its the whole reason for the apps existence rather then that silly little thing like news

Sign in?
Why is this app showing a sign in with a password when trying to access stories? It’s never done this before. I have always been able to click on a story a be taken right to it from the notification page, hit clear when I’m done and that was it there were no steps to get in.

Not happy with changes
Evidently users don’t need to be able to choose what to see in the news. The new version doesn’t allow to choose between local and National news stories at all. Every new version takes more news away and adds more of what some random person decides what we need to know about.

No Live Coverage
I don’t have TV but wanted to watch a special spot they did on a business. Since they no longer live stream on their website I downloaded the app since it says it broadcasts live. Once downloaded, there was a notice at the top they were live on air and to click to watch, but it didn’t work. It played an ad but did not show live news.

Live stream ads are unbearable
I don’t mind just getting the same ad breaks as on broadcast, but this morning we got the same few ads back to back to back and the actual news was interrupted mid-sentence for a minutes-long break that went right to the anchors prepping for another ad break. Turned it off in disgust.

Review of Fox 12 App
The app is not reliable. The streaming is poor and doesn’t live stream as desired. I’ve streamed Fox in Bay Area for years and I could depend on the local news feed. Need a local consistent and reliable live news stream.

Ads disguised as news
The most recent interface update is terrible. It intermingles advertisements with news stories, tricking you to click on them which gets you targeted by those ads on other platforms and aps.
