Okay for headline notifications, annoying otherwise
It spams you with weather notifications if you enable headline notifications (which I enable, because that's why I want a news app over going to a website). I've gotten 10 winter storm notifications within a minute. That's obnoxious and makes the app not worth the trouble. The "app support" button just takes you to their homepage so there is no way to contact them about this. Uninstalled it.

Frequent crashes and no way to report problems
This app crashes frequently. I don't know if it's just while using VoiceOver, which the visually impaired have to use to make the iPhone and iPad speak, but regardless, the developers should be testing that as well before releasing an app to the public. When I tried to go to the developer website to report the problem, there was no way to report it, so the only way to report it is to give it a bad rating. To keep from having negative reviews, or a high number of them, this should be fixed as well. Also, make the app better than your site! The same stories are available on the site and app at the same time, which is great, but the only advantage that the app has is the fact that we are notified of breaking news, but whether I will be able to actually read said breaking news story on the app is hit and miss, due to the crashing problem.

It's very simple and easy to read, however the latest app tends to not show "back" or "home" button on upper right corner once you click one article. I haven't read one other news for three days because it doesn't fix itself and I have no other options but to close the app. This isn't the first time. It happens a lot lately. They need to fix this problem or ill delete the app soon

Channel 4 news
Channel 4 news definitely keeps me up-to-date on the mountain with chain controls in town with accidents what road you’re close /open. It definitely helps me out because I am a local truck driver based out of Reno. Please keep up with the good work.

Annoying Portrait-Only App
I would rate this much better if it weren’t for the fact that it doesn’t run in landscape mode on my tablet, forcing me to disconnect from the keyboard and rotate the read easily. It’s been this way for years, and until they add landscape mode I’ll stick with KTVN for my news.

Why so slanted. You are what the true problem is.
Why can’t a news platform actually report the news without a slanted agenda? Why do the stories have to have disparaging, incendiary and exaggerated statements. Why can’t you just tell both sides and let your readers decide. I am so disappointed. I hope you can have the bravery to report news instead of forcing agendas. Goodbye I will never watch or read again.

App does not work on the iPad. I just takes you to an introductory screen but does not let you get past it. It also will not let view on the wide screen of the iPad. I seems to work on the iPhone but I do not use my phone when reading the news. I use my iPad. I will have to view local news on another local station's app unless this one is fixed.

Not very user friendly
What you are looking for is hard to access. When you get alerts and click on them, it does not take you to the story related to your alert. Constant unnecessary alerts involving minor stories or incidents.

Deleting this one
It's all pretty, but I sure wish I could read all the local headlines as a list and choose which articles to read instead of having to scroll though them all. If I read a breaking news article, it's about impossible to get back to local news. Navigation is impossible! :-(

No notifications with new app
The app is nice but I miss getting notifications. I've checked my settings several times to make sure they are enabled and in fact they are. Please fix the bugs on this app!

Bad update!
KRNV app use to be fine. After the update, there are now annoyingly too many commercials. My biggest complaint.... A headline alert does NOT take me to the story! The alerted headline opens the app leading the user to dig for the story. Personally, I lose interest immediately and close the app. If this is their way to expose all stories.... It's stupid!!!

Hard to find a single local news story after this latest update. I use to rely the on the app frequently. Now it is just taking up space.

Ok but not the best
Why is there a pop up about not connecting to the local host? It's been doing that for a while. Here's an idea. FIX IT! Deleted the app and all traces from my computer and still get error. Even got a new phone and still errors. This is just one more reason I don't watch channel 4.

The only news app without push alerts!
Since the new app was released, It has been lacking breaking news push alerts! Also, the app icon looks weird!

Not Great
I watch news 4 & want to keep the app. It’s not as user friendly as it once was. When I get a news alert & click on the link it opens the app that has nothing about the story I clicked on. Why send the alert if I can’t find the story?

App does not work
Since downloading the latest version of this app, it does not work. It boots up, and shows the screens to tell you how to use the app - but I can't get past those 5 screens. I tried deleting and reinstalling- but I got the same result. I followed the links in the App Store for support, that led me to the news web site - but offered no tech support. If it makes a difference, I turned off notifications and location services when the app is not in use.

Needs an editor
Some of the grammar is simply atrocious. Perhaps a high school degree should be required in order to post some of these "articles."

What happened to the traffic cams? I loved that! Plus time and date on the stories? Do like the other scopes though (beyond just local).

Please - landscape mode - Please
Please enable landscape mode specifically for the iPad version. Please add landscape mode. It doesn’t do any good to watch video in portrait mode only.

Used to be my favorite news app.... Then they updated it and changed its format. 😩. It's now such a pain to check the local news. Switching to another news app.

Won’t go to landscape mode for ipad
Would be a great app if it would go to landscape mode for the ipad. This should be an easy fix since all the other news channels can do it.

Newest version is terrible
Newest version does not work at all on iPad and is no more useful on iPhone. New format just lumps all stories into one list, poor design. Please rerelease previous version!

When will the Reno Fox 11 publish?
While we love KRNV 4 and Fox 11, we’d also appreciate a Fox 11 App. Higher star rating will come when Fox 11 has an App. Make certain that both apps will auto rotate to landscape.
