I like that the updated version implements the iOS 7/8 look. However, I would stick to a color scheme. More defined borders separating the stories would be better to look cleaner. Check out Buzzfeed's app. Something similar to it would be nice. I know you guys are on a budget and it's difficult to develop an app but I'm excited to see future updates!
Ever since I downloaded the app before COVID-19 this app has not worked very well. Streaming voice goes in and out and pauses too much. My husband downloaded the app as well and he gets an error message that he can’t stream because of the area yet I can with the defects.. and anywhere we go it doesn’t work well... very disappointed in the app to help me keep up with the news
Installed the app and noticed that it’s at least 3-4 hours behind the news with the website. Deleted app and just created a shortcut to the website on my home screen. Why even build a news app that has older news?
The text is hard to read for my grandma without her prescribed glasses. I want her to wear blue light glasses so she doesn’t strain her eyes but the text is to small. It would be helpful if you can add a bigger text option.
I live in the RGV and initially this app was helpful but since 6 months ago I receive notification but once I wanted to open, does not shows anything, I have been uninstalled and reinstalled delete and put it back and no luck
We always watch the local channel 5 for updates on news & weather. Also, ABC seems to be our most watched channel for shows, too. We enjoy watching the "new" people that try out for jobs & give nicknames to all the new weather people $ bet @ other to see who stays. We feel like we know Dina, Lisa, Joel, Alan & Tim & other "old" guys. We really like that you take on viewers and their situations and almost always get good results. We would call if we had a situation that we couldn't resolve. All in all, we may be your best fans. Keep up the good work. Mary a Harris, McAllen.
KRGV went from having one of the best news websites to having one of worse seemingly overnight. They deleted live streaming; they deleted news replays; and they made it difficult to understand why anyone would now want anything to do with them. In effect, they turned themselves into a cheap, amateurish site. So I am deleting you and I'll go somewhere else for news. I'll bet many others do exactly the same. What a pathetic bunch.
Ever since the switch from analog to digital I've had the worst luck picking up channel 5. I can't stand the low production values and the obvious pandering for views of channel 4 -with their constant giveaways and embarrassing pleads for facebook likes- so I don't even bother watching anymore. This app isn't as good as watching the newscast live on tv, but I suppose it's the next best thing.
I give one star cause zero is not an option but who ever designed it for you guys must have not tested it on an iPhone or just not tested at all. The adds are covering the tab buttons, the alpha images are of a low pixel quality that doesn't look clean on the higher resolution iPhone 4 or 4s. When you got the more tab the entire table view is covering everything. Really really bad design.
I don't know what you guys did to the old app but bring it back... I would watch the news in the morning while getting ready and now I can't.... Lame... Shame on you guys for taking off the live streaming and making this app not user friendly...
I'm deleting this app. after writing this review. The old one was great, this one I just don't care for. Channel 5 is still #1 though, I'll just have to stick to the tv. Giving app. one star, because it doesn't let me pick zero.
