Overall good for what is produced. Keeping up with technology is key.
I’m generally happy with this. I would hope for more content if I can’t watch vids.

I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app on my device, making sure it’s always up to date and even force it close and reopen to refresh the app. Even with all of this I continue to have constant issues with the screen freezing within all areas of the app while trying to scroll to see the complete information/details. I do not have this same experience in our other local news coverage app and unfortunately have had to rely on them since I keep having issues with this one.

App is Crap!
Crap app! Live news selection doesn't work most of the time or is just a picture of a radar weather map with some lame elevator music blaring in the background. The rare time the live button provides live news, don't wait too late to catch the weather forecast, you can end up missing it because of being forced to first watch a commercial about bowel movements or stopping smoking. Then if you touch the incorrect button, it will throw you back to the main screen, only to be forced to repeat the dreadful process all over again, and end up missing the weather forecast completely!

App continually freezes up
I love KSNT news & this app, with the huge exception that it freezes up when I try to read the breaking news. It’s so frustrating. I thought it was my older phone, but with my iPhone 11 Pro Max, the articles freeze up, too & it happens on a daily basis, sometimes multiple times in a day. I swipe & remove the old pages daily, but it still freezes. I wish they would get it fixed, but if not soon, I’m ready to change to a different app. Beware.

Love it, but it crashes
I really like this app and its features but I crashes almost every time I open it! It’s REALLY frustrating. The KSNT weather app does the SAME THING. I’ve tried troubleshooting, with no avail. I just want it to work. This app would get five stars if a) they fix the crashing b) more accessible live stream and previous streams c) IT NEEDS CAPTIONS

News coverage as well as weather .
Up-to-date broad coverage of local state and national news. Reported with clarity and forethought. Good reporting, follow up of stories is welcome. Sports is a strength as well.

This program is disgusting you can’t talk about how beautifully an animal can jump while it lays dead at your hand seriously what is wrong with you people and why would you put this on your network??? This program is in one word awful!!!

Love it!
I find this app easy to navigate and the video quality works great. Since I don't have cable I love that I can watch Kansas First News anytime with their live stream feature. I don't know why people are rating this app so low because I think it is the best news app in Topeka.

Notifications won't go away
I don't mind receiving the notifications of stories as they break but I don't want the notifications (number in red) to remain on the app. If I choose to read them - great. If not - great. Either way the # should go away when I open the app. I have tried to resolve this in my settings but the number is still there and I've read all the articles. Didn't happen til the last update. Please fix this.

Pop up adds crash program
This program has been my go to news program for sometime, but since the last upgrade there have been pop up adds that cause the program to lock up on the add. The program must be closed and reopened to get past the pop up. Still a good program and would rate it higher except for this problem.

When it works, it works. Too often, it freezes and I have to turn off my iPhone 5 to do anything. Sometimes, it freezes on the current page and sometimes it goes black and freezes. Although there have been several updates, the problem persists.

Regarding the earthquake felt this am.
Good reporting. We felt it in our area- Knollwood. Also, my sister in Omaha, Nebraska felt it- like a rumbling/ a heavy truck going by.

Problems once again
It seems like half the time they update the app it breaks in one way or another. Time to find a new app development company. When this app works it is a great app for local news. Currently it is broken though.

Like the old app much better
Old app was much easier to navigate. I liked the icons for news, weather, sports etc on bottom of old app. I will use WIBW app from now on.

Was good before the "bug fix" update. Now clicking on a story brings up a different story. And video never did work. Just made the app crash.

What happened to State & National news headlines? Homepage is smaller and difficult to read, repeated stories on same page and navigation is dreadful! No settings option and you can't adjust weather forecast for your own zip code. Should not have updated until ALL changes were complete. This app will hit the 'trash' if not Improved quickly. 5/5/13 update: This new app has not improved. Categories have been added but are a jumble of repeated stories. I don't want all sports on the local headline page, there's a sports category for that. App always freezing up and slow to respond. I give up - deleted. 9/14/17 UPDATE: Sorry I haven't updated this long before now. Many changes & updates have occurred over time and the newest format is even better imo. This app is now one of our go-to apps for local news and info. Keep up the good work!

Half the time it doesn't work at all...the other half it's so slow that it times out. Side note: there are always tons of grammatical errors in every article.

Needs work
I DESPISE the popup ad everytime you open it up. Also, the breaking news badge will not go to the story in the badge, so you have to find it amongst the news stories.

Notification options don’t work
You’ll get the stupidest notifications from them sometimes. Like the one I just got, “SWIFT IS HERE- Taylor Swift is at the Kansas City Chiefs stadium. KSNT.com” Oh… kay… I don’t care. At all. It’s not news. I ended up just shutting them completely off. The app itself is so clunky and hard to use through multiple updates.

Locked up
1/22/22 They completely updated this App and it’s worse then it was before. Every news story is full of ads and multiple videos (ads) that automatically play. You can barely scroll because it’s so glitchy. Locks up on almost every story but, don’t worry, to get out of the story you just have to close the App. I selected a story this morning that ended up being just a video and I couldn’t get out of it and back to other news stories. I had to close the App. So why do I keep using the App after my first negative review of it? Because there’s only two local news sources here and, they offer different news stories. Hopefully the idiots that can’t figure out how to get this App to work properly will be fired and things will improve. But I doubt it. Nobody over at ksnt is very bright. Worst news app anywhere! Continually crashes. Over and over. obviously KSNT doesn’t care or they’d fix it. This didn’t just start happening, it is the history of the app. 11/23/2020 update. I figured out why this App crashes so often. Because once it crashes and you open it again another ad pops up. It all about getting paid every time the ad pops up. So...more crashes, more $$$.
