Love it. Believe it. Need it. You guys are an amazing source of news. Thank God Crystal didn’t leave us!! I am not enjoying the changes this year with Kristan C. leaving or loosing Adam A. They were amazing and your replacements are young and struggle on occasion but the news and weather are still on spot. I like that you hired young and I am sure they will not let any of us down. I am excited for their future and getting used to their adorable faces. I want to thank you all for your ability to show up and deliver the news honestly. I feel I know what is going on and an honest version and I have you to thank for that! Please with the new changes coming for our state I’d like to ask that you start referring to Marijuana as cannabis. I am a holistic healer and Marijuana is a slang term referenced in the mind as deviant. You’ll look much better, more professional, and accepting of its medical value if you use proper terminology. Keep up the great work and again Thank you!
Biased news with no comment sections for discussion
Heavily biased news written by extreme leftists who try to control the media and information narrative for the entire state. ABQ/Santa Fe and surrounding areas have the worst crime stats and yet try to act like they are progressive and leading the way of the future. The rest of the state makes the money while these areas house all the zombie criminal people. They have a big population/vote but very few actually contribute tangible services/products to the states livelihood. The problem with this news service and organization is that they are completely left leaning. They are not open to anything but their own views. These sites use to have comment sections but after so many years of reader’s debunking , challenging, discussing and destroying the news stories, the outlets removed the comment sections and now readers can’t discuss the subject matter! Which is limiting free speech and challenges to the information being reported. Not a place to visit to discuss the topics with other readers because they don’t want you to poke holes in their stories.
Uninstalled due to ad splash screen at startup annoyance
Fairly recently tried this app, but found it too annoying to keep. Installed after a few days and instead kept the KOB-TV app The problem is: the app developer has inserted a splash screen ad that requires a “swipe up to dismiss.” Any iPhone user will tell you that swiping up on the screen pulls up the iOS utilities menu, so the ad can’t be dismissed. Clearly the developer has NEVER tested his/her app with an iPhone emulator to recognize this. I understand the need to pay for the app and business through advertising, but if KRQE is only providing an un-dismissible ad and not providing access to news, then who is going to want to use the application?
One of my biggest gripes about this site is that you seem to be so very anxious to get bad news out to the public that you don’t thoroughly do the job. There are many times when breaking news will appear about an incident about which you have only bare bones information and you promise to update. But the update never happens. We never see or hear the follow-up. How about backing off the “breaking news” and report what you know, not about things you have no information about.
I am editing to reflect some thoughts about the latest version of the app. They somehow managed to make it worse. It's mostly design issues. It's ugly and clunky. It's harder to find things like weather and sports because they are all hiding behind generic blue boxes with poorly designed graphics. The weather is SO bad. Half the time the forecast video isn't available, so I'm stuck reading the three sentences the meteorologist's decide to put up. I feel like I'm scrolling a lot more because there is an awful amount of white space.
Have the side switch on side of iPhone to instruct for no sound. After going to this app, the video starts to play automatically, which is annoying by itself, but then the video sound starts blaring. Terrible feature. Another terrible feature is there doesn’t seem to be any new news. App front page updated once a week it seems like it.
Where is the weather girl the blonde that was been there in the morning forever she is the best one I didn’t have channel 13 for almost a month because of DIRECTV and the negotiations come back and she’s gone why we liked her where did she go bring her back
Our great granddaughter Ali love the news we watch it every day with MARK Ronchetti she is 3. It is amazing she listen to everything he and Kim say. She thinks “Mark is soo cute with his pink cheeks. Your biggest fan Ali.
October 2017 update. Downward spiral of web design hits rock bottom. I have deleted. Jan 2015 update is going in the wrong direction. What is it that compels designers to believe that the more you cram onto a small screen the better your app? This is messy, overcrowded but surprisingly without more info. A definite wrong direction. Lordie I wish they would let you downgrade to the previous version. Guess I'll be using the KOB app a lot more!
The Idea is great, the app is trash. Constantly fails to show videos, freezes, crashes, and in some cases fails to even open. Once in, you’ll find 9 ads on a page for one single story and only 5 mins to legitimate stories by this news organization. I gave it one star only because you can’t give 0 stars.
Message to KRQE, am I the only one? The video story doesn’t have to accompany the written story, does it? When I use the app, the ad plays & then the story. I turn off the sound real quickly so I won’t disturb others around me. Sometimes I exit out app. Saying this: no video, reading is ok. Yep, I can read, I used to buy newspapers plus I know cursive. I’ll go elsewhere.
6 stars would be easier. I could do half and be happy with it. I use this as much as eBay,Which I haven’t used lately to make an accurate rating. So there lies the problem. How do you rate if you don’t use it enough to be happy nor angry ? 🧐🤨
This app is just awful. It takes forever to load and then a full screen ad in your face. Then news articles are in video where you must watch a commercial first. Look at your competitors site and see good ones! Deleting.
KRQE is a main part of my husbands and my day. Everyone is very genuine and we actually enjoy watching the news when it’s presented in a way that impacts you while not depressing you. Sounds strange but it’s real! Thank you KRQE!
When I click on a story I want to read, the video starts playing automatically and there’s no stopping the video unless you turn it down, which is not fun every time I want to READ a story instead of watching it on a replay every time.
Please turn off auto play when opening a story. When in public or around my wife sleeping it just turns on and is most annoying. If not done I’ll delete the app and get my news from someone else as there are other local news stations.
This app is straight trash. It basically redirects all traffic through their website. That’s just lazy. What’s the purpose of an app? Learn to embed the articles. Also, the ads are awful and until dismissed, you cannot interact with the UI. Then the ads reappear seconds later, so you can’t enjoy reading the article.
I really dislike this new design. Big red boxes not really telling any thing. Just another click to go through to see if I want to follow. I know programmers want work. But I want quality. Not sure why you think this is a good change.
I dislike everything about this new app. You all have always been my favorite news source in Albuquerque and still are, however this new app needs some extensive help. Thanks and sorry for the negative review, but it looks like I'm not alone.
Crashes CONSTANTLY and frustrates me SO MUCH because I want to read articles and move between pages on the app- but sometimes I’m lucky to spend one minute on the app. Forces me to give up and go to the KRQE web page. Please fix this!
I agree 100% with JMortley. Took the words right out of my mouth. Before implementing or changing something to put it in production you should at least test it. You would think that is the most obvious thing to do.
The graphics are horrible. The new weather feature is so bland. Nothing about this new layout is appealing. Bring back the old app or sue. This is not in any way user friendly. Only KOAT's app is worse and just barely.
This is a good app with good local news. However, they partner with ad agencies that promulgate offensive ads that stoke fear, disinformation, and divisiveness. For this reason, I am deleting this app.
