Unable to Open App
I have used this KTRE News App for several years. While it has had its issues, I recognize that this is a small town news outlet and they probably have zip in the way of funds to get a better set up. HOWEVER — for the past several days, I click on this app to check on local news stories that show up as teasers, but the app will NOT open. Same with it’s sister app for KLTV. I’ve tried deleting the apps and reloading them through the Apple Store, but that is a no go, as well.

Great app. I wish y’all could make the type size adjustable. So many of us try to read this on our phones and tablets and with older eyes sometimes it is hard to read the small size text. I know that option is available because I’ve used it before on USA Today. Thanks and keep up the great work

The worst
I think KTRE app is the worst!! There will news stories that will stay in the headline news for days. I know on the news every night they don’t report on the same thing for days so why can’t the app be updated as with the nightly TV news. I am tired of pulling up this app every morning and seeing the same things. About to delete this app.

Ktre9 news
Wishing I had kept the previous app. No tab for weather, no dates on homepage news stories until the header is opened, no top stories tab, where is red zone located? Where are recipes? Not a user friendly app. Disappointed user

Stories don’t open, when get alerts takes several hours for it to appear in news so can read story. Tries to play everything thru car when Bluetooth feature is on.

Not a local news station....
It’s a shame all y’all do is report Tyler and Longview and maybe 1 from the Nacogdoches and Lufkin area. A disgrace a station from San Antonio reported the gas explosion 30 minutes after it happens, then y’all wait 4 1/2 later to report it and it’s in y’all backyard. ☹️

Faceman5050 loves the app but why wasn't it a update
I love the improvements from the last version of the app both apps are great but this one is better by far. Why wasn't it a update to the last app other than that it's all good lol

Extremely difficult to use with voice over for the blind because their advertisements are more important than being able to read the story. I would give it -5 it is now useless.

Bugs moved-not fixed
Some stories won’t load-such as the restaurant reports. You see more in the headline than the story. And cluttered with too much clickbait

Latest update made me delete this app
The latest update of this app is awful. They have gone to a Facebook style format and it is not user friendly. The old format was easy and user friendly I could find the stories I liked to read and see how recent they were. It was simple and clean but now it's just a bunch of jumbled carbage. They should have just kept it simple and I would still be enjoying this app, despite the fact KTRE does not know it's viewers by reporting liberal style news in a conservative area.

Force closes when trying to go back from story
I liked the other app way better. Never had issues with it. This app has a great new look, reason for 2 stars, but when trying to read the news the app force closes when trying to load as well as when you try to go back from the story you were reading. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

Crap App!!
This app is crap, the breaking news notification you get does not appear to reflect the "updated" story in the app for some time, this app crashes often and will defiantly crash if you try to share or email a story, the news is usually old news that I've already read on either the KLTV app or The Associated Press app, again this app is junk!!!! One star is a compliment....

Breaking news
Good app however KTRE needs to use better judgement on what breaking news is. A cat being rescued is not breaking news. The frequency of breaking news notifications makes me want to turn off those notifications. Serious incidents involving a threat to public safety...that's breaking news.

Last update is junk
Was a great app until the last update, now all I get are advertisements that slow down everything. Believe it or not it is easier to just wait until the news comes on tv than to deal with this app. Pure junk

The app is alright, a little buggy, some of the "buttons" don't seem to work upon first touch. It is nice to be able to have local news with you at all times, however I do hope KTRE can do a better job checking for spelling and grammar errors.

Not working
It's the weather app. I updated Saturday on my phone and it just keeps saying installing but it's not It won't even let me write a review to let you know it's not working, so this app was working fine and I thought maybe I could write the review on it and someone could fix weather app.

You Broke It. Again.
They had finally made it a decent app, then they added the most hideous auto-swipe feature I've ever seen.
