Better than Dallas news!
I like to keep up with Abilene news, since I have family there. This app always seems to be the first for breaking news stories--even nationally! It sure beats Dallas news, where I live! Excellent job!

Today’s update(9 Jan 2018) removes the ability of the app to rotate to landscape view. You also lose the ability to set the weather location to anything other than Abilene. Neither of these “features” are an improvement. I’d recommend NOT updating until a fix for the problems are addressed. UPDATE(24 Jan 2018): Still No Landscape View with latest update. It also appears they’ve morphed into nothing more than a rebranded USA Today. Fewer and fewer local stories. You now must scroll down several sections just to get to the “Local” section.

I really enjoy the app and being informed of breaking News and weather anytime. I only wish they would have updates on stories, major stories, every 4-6 hours or even every day until it becomes really old news. Or no longer needed. Actually I wish this was true on the TV news as well. KTXS #1

Abysmal app
This has got to be the worst news app ever developed, or that I have ever used at least. I’ve had it installed for 3. or 4 years and keep it updated but it never gets better. The news stories are days behind and when “local” is selected there are only a couple stories related to the area. The majority of any headline stories are all syndicated. It truly is resemblance of a single person working out of their closet at home.

Love the KTXS app
KTXS is our favorite TV station, so it only stands to reason that we also have the app. It's quick and easy, and we can have the breaking news at our fingertips. One suggestion: please have a link on the app for FactFinders! Love that piece on the news, but I couldn't find it on the app or the website. Thank you!

Sick with adds
So many adds you will forget the news you were reading. Adds that will cause you to accidentally touch and take you to websites and you have to reopen app to get back to article. Adds that take you to the App Store when you bump it trying to read news. Adds that, my most hated that as soon as you scroll to new article they play a video add with sound. They ruined an otherwise ok app.

Not an improvement
Love KTXS and will always faithfully watch your news programs! But, the new app is no improvement whatsoever. Ads sometimes between each news story. Maybe, budget wise they are necessary, but they have no place interrupting the flow of news stories. Would love to have the old ap back but I gather that's not possible. You're all still #1 with me!

Allergy report
What happened to the allergy report? The allergy report was the main thing I used this app for, now I don't see it. And, I didn't see anyplace where I could ask tech support about it. While they have now added the allergy report back, I have to agree with other users. There are way too many ads that take up way too much room and the app doesn't seem to be as user friendly as it was before.

Hire some real journalists!
Who, what, when, and where. Your app is almost useless. I’ll read a whole news article about a crime only to find out it happened on Grape street in San Antonio. Didn’t even know they also had a Grape street. Try using bylines at the top. Try answering those four basic questions in every news article. It’s like your articles are written by kids or something.

The last time not this time I updated this app I lost the icon for the app on my screen. I hoped this update it would come back. Maybe someone can help me.

Hate the new app
The new app is terrible. It's now more of an ad app than a news app. Like many others have said, KTXS has been my go to app for quick local news, but the new app is so ad saturated and so user unfriendly, I'm thinking of deleting it. And as for alerts, please only use your theme music for true news/weather emergencies....not for the regular forecast. Good job on ruining your app and your credibility.

Review of KTXS News
Excellent source of daily news when I am away from home. Love the newscasters and the weather people. Love that they are not as opinionated and just tell the news.

Old and repetitive news stories
Yesterday I counted 7 stories on the weather! One for each of the last 7 days. Really? Get rid of the old! AND there were 4-5 different stories on the same topic about the latest national shooting. Some stories are updated within the same story and some start brand new stories with no new information. PLEASE one story per topic!

Excellent App - depend on it for instant news. We always used KTXS when we lived in Abilene and continue to use it since we moved. It's the best! Thank you for providing instant news.

The app is so handy to access when I'm out of town and want to stay aware of the news here. The format, like that of stations in other cities I access, is clear and easy to use.

I find KTXS to be very informative on happenings in the Big Country. Keep us informed on what is going on in Abilene. And be an investigative reporter on all the happenings in our wonderful city.

App loads too slow
Since the app updated, it takes way too long to load. It has made it to the point that I seldom open the KTXS app anymore. I have started using the big country homepage because it loads like a normal app.

Change NOT for the better......
The format change has made this app less friendly to use. The full size ads add to the confusion. KTXS has always been my go to app because it was so easy to see the top news stories quickly without the extra steps. Still dig KTXS......

Not happy with the app
Love ktxs tv but do not care for the app. There are too many ads. It just doesn't seem logical or user friendly. I liked earlier versions but this one just seems lacking in appeal and useability

I liked the old version much better. The ads drive me nuts. The weather radar doesn't work half the time. It takes a lot longer to load than the old version. I give it three thumbs down.

KTXS update
I loathe the advertisements mixed within the news feed. The advertisements are less than tasteful, and seem to be something you'd see in an unreliable news source like "National Inquirer" or "TMZ". The old app was much better.

This version is horrible. Difficult graphics to navigate and twice as many advertisements than there is news stories. Very disorganized. I hope KTXS will fix this.
