No sure if writing a review is the best way to get a bug fixed, but here goes
Every time I click on the notification the app directs me to the app which seems great and normal. The problem comes when the app opens, it does not open the article I wanted to be directed to. It's aggravating, but not the worst part, once in the app there is no sign of the article I'm now interested in, anywhere. It's as if the article doesn't exist, even though I read a snippet of it on my watch and/or on my phone. It's crazy enough to drive someone mad.
This app is to glitchy, sometimes it works, but most of the time it doesn’t work. The push notifications when I try clicking them they aren’t there! So why send them to me when I can’t see them! This app needs a lot of work and attention to details, even the extras are glitchy too, I’ve enjoyed the game section till the glitch hit it as well. If the issues aren’t resolved soon, I’ll just delete it and go without it!!!!
The way to pronounce Latah in the report of the Idaho killings is Lay-tah. I used to live up there . There are many times that things they say are mispronounced, and a lot of words on the screen are misspelled, why are there so many mistakes? And you can hear Mark Koelbel coughing into the mike while the weather person is reporting.
Ever since your undo are a month ago, I haven’t been able to see/hear the live news broadcast. I’ve updated and restarted my phone. Deleted and reinstalled the app. Nothing works. So I’m stuck watching your competitor, the Fox 13 News broadcast. Their app always works, although their weather isn’t as good as Lindsay Storrs or Sterling Poulsen. And their news - well, it’s Fox. What can I say. Please fix your app! Please.
Old version was easy to navigate and scroll. New version keeps skipping around and automatically goes to advertisements. These bugs should have been caught in testing. Have tried deleting and reinstalling, no luck. Better luck next time.
I've had versions of this app for over 2 years now. Originally loved it primarly for breaking news type updates, and that the links would start as text rather than video. Recently they've been adjusting how they implement it, and I hate the results. They (KUTV) are now using the Alerts feature to offer "teases" of what's coming up on the broadcasts - e.g. Tune in at 7:17 to hear Debbie update the weather. I find this very annoying and it feels like the equivalent of Spam. I don't want that clutter on my alerts, and my first reaction was to use Settings to eliminate Sounds from their alerts. If they don't stop, my next step will be to remove the app entirely.
I do have a couple of issues with the app. On my phone, the back button is such a tiny touch target that it takes me several tries to hit it. Is there a way you could implement a swipe action as navigation? Swipe right to go back and swipe left to go to the next story or something like that? Second, I can't find a feedback function in the app to report issues and give feedback like this. It would be nice to have that in the app so I don't have to leave to come here.
This app is pure genius!! This is exactly what those of us who view news on our phones have been wishing for......news broken down into categories, well written and actually edited before being released, but most impressive.....photos you can actually see!!! Photos can be enlarged, moved around, viewed and enlarged so you may actually see the details of the photos and view them. This is now my go to app for news!!!
This would be my go to news app for Utah news if the formatting was a little better. The title of each story is big and doesn't fit on the home screen. It makes browsing through the news difficult and uninteresting. The page needs to be reformatted to fit the full title for the story and it should also default to the news page upon launching instead of going to a full page menu first.
I don't normally write reviews for apps but this one deserves the recognition. From worst to best in one jump. The new format is awesome!! Kudos to the developers as they have just raised the bar and set the new standard. I hated the old version and usually used a competitors app because the information was so limited that it wasn't worth my time. Looking forward to getting my news from my favorite news team. Great job!! Keep it up!!
Weather No weather forecast video (only ad) displayed..
The weather menu lists a link to the forecast video, but never works in all the time I've used the app, so I always use the KSL weather app which works great. Other videos seem to work fine in other stories. Disappointing.
I previously voiced my disappointment with the app but this latest update is so much better. So thank you! Removing the right justification, or fixing what was causing it to right justify, and fixing the text wrapping and truncation have really made this a usable app. I would still appreciate having this app rotate to landscape view. Greatly improved!
I love this app! I listen to it every morning getting ready for work. But since the last update I can hardly hear the news. The advertisements are fine but when it switches to the news it's difficult to hear especially if there are any other noises going on. Hope they fix this soon!
I have the lasted version and ever since I got the last updated none of the videos in the app will work. I get the ad working just fine but then went to go see actual video, the content that I want to watch it. I keep on getting video error, please come back later to play video. PLEASE FIX THIS because I'm very upset that I cannot get any of my news that I want, the only way I get it. Especially to Get Gephardt investigations.
I can't play any videos...grrr it seem that every time I try to plAy a video it just completely go black the background of the screen and the video never play. Is for all the videos. Is driving me nuts.
I like the app format and content. However closing a story is impossible, when you hit the X to close the story, it jumps to the top of the page, then it’s almost impossible to get back to the home screen. Thus I have to close the entire app and start over if I am not to frustrated and move onto the KSL app.
Half the time the app won't even work. I click on news and it just brings a blank page. If the app does work not all the stories are on there and they aren't updated either. What's the point of making an app if you aren't going to update the stories?
Generally I like this app, but the news headlines are incomplete and all end in ... Maybe you need a smaller font or something. I have started going to the KSL app because their headlines are not incomplete. It is frustrating to not get enough information in the headline to know if you want to read the story or not.
When it works, it's just okay. About once a month it won't load and I have to delete it and then re-download it. As said in previous reviews, the news isn't updated that often, and when it is, it seems only to be a few stories.
When I watch their tv channel you don't get a commercial between each story. I know ads pay the bills but the same 30 second commercial every time I watch a story is annoying. Other wise the app is great
Like to keep up to date with local news, but do I really need constant adds throughout the story and photos? NO!! Every third or so photo is an advertisement, and at least three or more while trying to read a story!
Seriously, I can handle a dose of ads, but the same ones over and over and over, breaking into the news to advertise. I would NEVER subscribe to tennis channel because I am so sick of hearing about it. Please fix this. I love 2 news in the morning.
Tried this app after KSL ruined theirs. Not significantly better. I want to read my news. I can't even read the article titles without clicking through because the font is too big. I don't know if an article sounds interesting because I only get 3-4 words of the title.
When I try to watch the video forecast I get the forecast from 3 days ago. The forecast for the week is way off as well. I'm guessing no one over there cares about this app. If you need to show someone how to delete an app on their iPhone, this is a good one to practice on.
What a rotten app, especially considering how great their broadcast news is. There are few relevant stories here, and many of the stories on the app are over a month out of date. They should just archive their broadcasts to be watched any time, any where. They need a new app developer!
I love watching the morning news. I have tried the website and the app. Both have so many problems. Constant freezes, repeated segments, adds will pop up and play. I love watching the news. Please make it easier to watch.
You can’t get audio. Why put all this money and effort in creating this platform to have no sound? It’s been like this for over a year. What’s the point? It really makes the app useless. Uninstalling. I’ll find an app with sound.
Good app. Great layout. But only shows what has been shown on the news. Doesn't keep you informed with things that are going on between news casts like KSL's app does. Love watching KUTV2 news but I don't love the app.
This app needs to be updated, enabling it to rotate to landscape mode! Very annoying. I have done all I know, therefore the app renders itself useless, and deletable. Please advise….. UPDATE! FIX YOU IPAD APP TO ROTATE SO ITS USEABLE! PATHETIC PIECE OF JUNK THE WAY IT IS!
