The app my be fine but the news agency behind it is incredibly irresponsible. Plastering faces and names up far and wide without any regard to the effect it has on those people and their families lives. Nevermind that the second you put charged with all people think is guilty. It’s a shame. The stress it causes. The torment and paranoia it fosters in a soul not knowing who has seen it and who is looking at them. Judging. Deciding their guilt based on a picture and a headline. Fox 8 isn’t the only network that is guilty of this they jus happen to be. Who I’ve seen first. I will no longer support a network that destroys for the sake of headlines or viewership. I will no longer support a network through their apps. You should really think about effects beyond your news room walls before you do the things you do.

Please fix my news app!!!
I used to love this app, which is why I’m giving it the three stars, but lately, it won’t work at all! I get notifications all the time, but when I click on them, I get nothing!! When I just go into the app, I get nothing, just a black screen… o have to go and search it on the website, so what’s the point of the app?? And then sometimes, when it was actually working, it wouldn’t even take you to the actual story you clicked on from the notifications… fix this ASAP!!!

Crashes and other things
This app is always crashing. It will also post breaking news and as soon as you click on it the link takes you to a blank page or to the home page where you cannot find the article until some time later. Today was the last straw when I was trying to watch a live broadcast and there was no sound. I flipped over to the competition and didn’t have any trouble with sound or anything else. I like FOX8 but I hate this app

Becoming a typical click capturing App
Local news is interspersed with national news, some stories days old. Confusing! Recent news, local and national, is often placed way down the page, a sophomoric attempt to get the reader to view more stories with more advertising in them. Advertising is imbedded in most stories. I’ve found that when stories are repeated you should choose the second story as it has little or no advertising.

Bad update
Since the app has been updated, have fail to update the app and cannot see anything but add my weather location. I can’t scroll or down at all on my iPhone. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and shutdown my phone and still have the same results. I like the app before this issue and I love to see this issue fixed.

Such potential
Browsing the app's content is decent and better than the other local news apps as far as content. What brings it down to a three star is the ever annoying notifications they consider breaking news, which is the only one I have set. For instance, just now got an alert on a video of a wood carving artist. How the heck is that breaking news??? I unchecked video updates, which is what this is.

Best News App
Fox8 has the best news app. It gives me the current happenings in national and local news. They give you the information you need and do it in a non-biased professionally reported journalistic style. I depend on the Fox8 news app and the Fox8 Weather app to help get me through the day.

Local News
Hey Developers, app starts with “Start Local Stay Local”, then after 5-8 Local News Stories there’s national stories mixed in, Please create another tab or something, that’s very irritating, National news is important too, but shouldn’t be mixed with local news, especially considering your “Start Local Stay Local” Theme!

Advertisers paradise, users nightmare.
Lately when I use app and read stories reported some pop up advertising ad comes up and I cannot read story. Advertisement doesn't have a close x location. I have to go back to main page 2-3 times before I can finally read story. Same ad keeps popping up. Deleted app and reloaded. Same thing.... Arrrggghhhh.... Guess Fox8 getting paid well from advertising.....

Could be issues
Every time I open this app, within five minutes it’s rendered useless and I have to force close it and start over. It consistently freezes up. I love my fox 8 and they are my go to new station. I thought maybe an update would fix this but it’s been consistent for a year now. Even deleting and reinstalling doesn’t alter the outcome. Someone please fix it!

Was good
App was good after two updates it’s bad. The text is much too large and takes too long to scroll through. Thought the second update would fix that but it didn’t. Now I never finish the news story. Change it back.

My Fox 8
I have never had to send a review but now. I have the new iPhone 12 Max Pro. Every time I log out at night then log back in, My Fox 8 app will not work. The Fox 8 logo comes up but that is as far as it goes. I delete the app reinstall it and it works! I love the app and having to do this is getting tiring!

Easy to use!
Very convenient and easy to use. Some apps you have to find the alert once it is displayed. This app makes it easy to follow the top stores including the weather.

Terrible update
This is one of the worst app changes I’ve had in a long time and it seems that every time they do an update it just gets worse! At first it was frustrating when I would tap view more and nothing would happen but now I tap it and it shuts the app down completely!! You need to fix this or take it away, it’s just useless!

This new version of the app is downright awful. I used to love getting my news from Fox 8, but the app is so glitchy and swarmed with so many ads that is is practically impossible to get any actual news from it. Like another recent reviewer, I am also switching to another local news app. Can not imagine how anyone would think this is an improvement.

Needs work, Work on Accuracy
During the Covid-19 time, have found the numbers that are reported are not consistent with NC DHHS. Looks like sensationalism is running the editing room. People need news that is accurate! I agree with other reviews that refer to issues with too many ad’s and ad’s that weaves into various stories. Many of these are pure SPAM and are dangerous.

There app
I have had the app for a long time, I get up in the morning and that’s the 1st thing I do. But since they change the app I am unable to view more news ad I don’t like that. I have deleted the app and reinstalled it and it still doesn’t work… really upset about it….

Poor App
It is slow to download because of all the videos attached to the story. Even if continue reading is selected on the story, it won’t let you read until the video is downloaded. I do not see the need for videos with every story. The app does not update with current stories, especially on weekends. That leads you to believe nothing else is happening.

Beware - redirects to unwanted ads
I’ve uninstalled it. Used to be a great app, but they’ve started embedding ads underneath the thumbnails for articles. You think you’re tapping on an article, but it redirects to a web page for an ad?! You can tell because the same news article will be listed twice. Only the second one is legit. Used to be a very good source for local news. Not any more!

Crashes consistently.
I've had issues in the past with the app freezing but this was minor for the most part. After the last round of updates the app only opens one out of 10 times. Logo appears then it crashes. I've deleted and reinstalled. Still crashes. I've reset my phone, still crashes. I've all but give up on it.

Why do I keep this app
I have had this app for years now. In the past it has been somewhat good. The past few months this app is frustrating. There has been a few updates recently. Since the updates, the app either crashes or freezes 100% of the time. Please take the time to fix all the issues.

No longer worth having
Used to be a good app to get your local news. Now, it’s terrible. Full of ads, and glitchy. Hard to read the news, and find anything. If you are into ads this is the app for you. If not, I would avoid. I quit using their app. Terrible now.

New Up/downgrade
This used to be my go to app for news. Since the “upgrade” that was forced upon users, the app sticks, stutters, and is so annoying that I will be deleting it and moving to a different news provider. It’s a shame because I have been a loyal viewer and user until now...

Don’t like new format
After using the MyFox 8 app for the last few years, I have changed over to another local news app because I don’t like the new version. It’s repetitive with stories, hard to read, and the pop ups are worse than ever.
