Overall Good App
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!

Bad app
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

Not up-to-date as the website
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?

Text is to small
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.

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.

Not enough news reported, especially on weekends. Readers donor have any way to comment on news stories.

Pathetic !!!
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.

Good enough.
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.

Really, really bad design
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.

Keeps me well informed.
I like this app it keeps me well informed, but I'd like to have back the live broadcasting on the app since I'm sometimes away from the tv, overall this is a very well done app.

Bad bad bad...
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...

Terrible app keeps getting worse
News feeds are unorganized and chaotic. Updates are also terrible during the weekends. Finally this app has successfully warranted me to seek other more reliable and dependable local news apps.

Put out recent news.
Most the news are 15 to 20 hours old. I keep going back to see if for any reason channel 5 post recent news but no I don't see the point of having this app.

Old App. was the best!
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.

No iPhone 5 Support
It's been over 6 months since the iPhone 5 has been released and still no support for the larger screen. Get the Channel 4, KGBT, app which looks much better or use your browser instead of this app.

New Upgrade
This new upgrade is not very friendly. It is more difficult to easily read news summary. I don't think this application needed an upgrade.

Poorly Designed
This app is very poor in quality. Just like the Channel 5 News Website KRGV. It is confusing and runs on old design concepts. This app needs a complete redesign with modern techniques
