LongTime So Cal Resident
I now live out-of-state, but still have many family members and friends living in Southern California. Up until June 1st of this year (2020), my TV provider (DirecTV) provided me with the Los Angeles (and NYC) four main network channels. This year, Congress decided not to renew the regulation that allowed telecoms to provide that service. So the channels went away. Now the only way I can stay up-to-date with So Cal news and weather, a station I have watched for over forty years!, is through this app. It’s always about money, folks. Some corporations —of some people represented by powerful lobbyists— were not financially benefitting from allowing telecoms to provide out-of-state channels so We the People lost out. For many people in rural areas, it was the ONLY access they had to the four main network channels—they are not able to pull in any local channels. But who cares about them? Not our money-grubbing Congress. Anyway, I am grateful that NBC LA provides this app to us free over the internet. It is great as a stand alone news source (written news or prerecorded videos) as well as providing several hours daily of their live news broadcast. NBC’s coverage and reporting is the best and this app is, too. Thank you.

News The Way I Want It
NBC4 So Calls Mobile News app has created the news tool of convenience. I can’t tell you when I last sat down in the family room to watch the news as a newscast was happening. I am more likely to have been on the go, at work or in another part of the house. Convenience with a capital C. Alerts that remind me of an upcoming story or broadcast. A traffic story or potentially dangerous pursuit are just some of the features I rely on. Lastly, it’s dependable. It’s especially valuable while traveling. Good job and thank you.

Up to the minute news!
For the latest breaking news in So Cal, our state and even national news, this app provides timely alerts and articles. I recommend using your phone alerts to notify you as some news (such as fires, car chases, traffic jams, flooding, earthquakes) can help you prepare or avoid those problem areas. Overall, this app has provided excellent, concise coverage for the highlights of the day.

Family LOVES this app
BEST. APP. EVER. This is a must have app if you love watching SoCal car chases. You get notified the moment the chopper is on scene. Best coverage of car chases too. My kids can’t get enough of it. The reporters are always respectful and will pull back the camera view if things get too violent. I just wish that they’d leave footage of the car chase on the app so that those of us who missed a late night chase could watch it the next day. Thanks

SoCal refugee
I moved out of California a year ago, but I like to keep up on the news so I remember why we left. It’s left wing, but at least I get to read stupid stuff Newsome does, see homeless encampments expand and watch high speed chases. NBC was my favorite news when we lived there and I watched it multiple times a day. I moved to a red state where people have more sense and it’s not crowded.

My source for local news
Due to the ridiculously high cost of cable, I have become an avid streamer for my electronic entertainment needs. KNBC allows me to stay informed with local events when I want to or am in the mood to do so. Thanks for this option that allows me to control my time and money without being a victim to a merciless, unfeeling, greedy group of shareholders at a cable network.

Excellent Wild Fire Coverage
Living in SoCal w COVID. and we don’t have cable TV as we cannot afford it anymore. Trying to make ends meet during hard times now. Money is tight. This app has been a nice addition in that it is free for poor people like us. And it gives us the coverage we need on news especially with the fires. Thank You NBC 4 LA. Somethings in life being free really help the folks in dire need!

News in a glance
Just the right type of news as I need it when I need it, it’s on time right to the point and accurate. I get my weather and local happenings on my device any time anywhere and above all I get live news like police pursuits so I know what areas to avoid. This app is a great source of the news locally and nation wide, so get it.

One best sources for LA’s news
The KNBC News app is a great source for local, national and world news. It’s easy to navigate and has all the pertinent local news. You can also watch the news broadcasts live through the app if they’re on the air. If you’re into pursuits, they provide great coverage and continues the coverage even after the live telecast goes off the air.

You’re app is one of the most user friendly news apps I have. I enjoy it very much. Please continue to have it user friendly especially for searching for articles that may not be in the current news cycle. Being able to obtain or revisit information is very important.

I spend a lot of my time tracking business news which often incorporates national and international news so I don’t have a lot of time to stay on top of local events and developments. This app allows me to stay in touch with SoCal in a time-effective way. Excellent!!

Doesn't deserve even 1 star!
After being told their previous weather app is no longer supported, they tell us to use this app instead. But the weather page is disfunctional, so I've deleted the app entirely. There are other apps that do a much better job with news & weather. Dump this one! Update - The current weather page still doesn’t even provide a full page weather map!!! Other weather apps are more informative and much more user-friendly. Awful awful awful.......

Great app!
I get the news in a timely and fast manner. This has been especially important between the virus & the riots. Their reporting is actual reporting - facts - no opinions. I appreciate their attention to detail and their professionalism. Lastly, I appreciate being alerted when to turn the TV on (or see it there) if something newsbreaking is happening. Thank you.

I have watched the news on channel 4 for at least 35 years. Since the internet came along I watch you wherever I. Can get WiFi. Coleen and Chuck have been my favorites. I love to hear your reports, they are always precise and honest. I am 73 years old and I watch you on my iPad in Coolidge, Arizona. All I can say is keep up the great work you all do. God Bless You all.

Local LA News
Thank you for making a great news source app, because of my work hours I don’t have the opportunity to actually watch the news on my tv, I’m not gonna lie, I have all the local LA Stations news apps on my phone, but the one I go to hourly, nightly, and daily is yours. Thank you for the updates, keep up the great work.

Informative and easy to use
Love this news app. It presents the current information easily and clearly, so if I’m short on time I can just grab the basics. If I have more time, I can read the story in depth. Like their coverage too usually. It is presented more neutrally (less political slanting) than the other big news outlets in the L.A. area.

I’ve been having problems with my app it just won’t function. I can click on something and it freezes forever. So I close it and reopen it constantly and still won’t function right. I’ve deleted it and rebooted my IPAD and re-downloaded it again and again a d yet still won’t work. It WAS on my IPAD a d I can’t remember what I had done to have these problems so I’m kinda stuck in the IPAD, YET it works perfectly fine on my IPHONE tho! What can I do to get this to re-work again on my IPAD then????

The best for the news in the greater LAstes&&
I always turn to Channel 4 news when watching TV. It’s a no brained to do the same thing on my phone. I trust them the most to give me accurate and up to the minute information. The only negative is I hate it when the devote a whole newscast to a stupid car chase. I’d rather know the news than watch the car chase.

KNBC News app
I am very satisfied with my KNBC news app because it’s easily accessible from my iPhone 7 home screen for whenever I need up to the minute news whether it’s from my local news, weather report or current sports scores. Also there’s so much more news nationally or international. Thank you KNBC NEWS.

I just deleted this app after using it for quite some time. Recent changes make it impossible to use. Two thirds of an article appears on the screen and the right side is cut off. When I try to scroll down in an article, the screen freezes every time in order for a pop up ad to take over. I’ve tried to work around this all week and it is just too frustrating. I guess ad revenue is more important than your users. Fine by me. Bye.

This app is the perfect way to get more details on local stories of interest. Up to date, and easy to find news. Plenty of local city and county stories for all of SoCal without the noise you find on Twitter and Facebook

Keeping up
Most helpful for me in Illinois to learn about conditions my family is living through in the great state of California when it’s under such duress as the fires. National news makes a strong effort but the local news has a personal motivation that can’t be matched. Thank you.

New update is terrible
Always like reading my local news on here but after the new update, it’s so hard to navigate and not very appealing. Sorry to say but I will be leaving this app unless it gets changed which is probably not going to happen. It’s a shame because I would spend hours reading on here but now going to a new local news app that makes finding news more accessible. I see lots of ads and boring stories.

Love this AP on SO many levels. News, weather, live TV. It’s awesome. I use to use ABC7 app but after Garth and Alysha left I was done and followed Alysha to channel 4. Download this app and was pleasantly surprised to find out I could watch live TV on it as well. Now I can watch news and Ellen while working. Win Win

Definitely the best local news app
This is clearly the best local news app except for one problem: it is hard to close a story you have read; sometimes it is impossible to close the story, so I quit and go to another app. 😢

Heads up
I use the NBC4 LA up because it gives me good heads up when there’s danger on the streets. Such as a police pursuit or a tragic event at a college campus or on the streets. It also keeps me up-to-date with sporting events such as the Los Angeles Dodgers going to the World Series. To me NBC4 LA App has been a lifesaver and yet a game changer. I think you NBC 4 for making my daily life just a bit easier.

I gave your app a real gentlemen’s try, attempting to find a setting or option within it to make it legible after noting that you had pinch and zoom options disabled in your design Thought I’d share with you my concern before removing uou app from my iPhone 6 Plus, hoping you’ll respond

Love Live News lalalala
I live in Oregon now, yet I spent my youth in West L A. . I even Worked in L A News in late 60s. Today , NBC does spot on job with the news reports. The typical national news of a CNN gets a little boring after a while. The most compelling service they offer is the News Alert. Day or nite, I get an alert for breaking events in the City. Patrick

The latest version of this app is so annoying I have uninstalled it. It is almost impossible to scroll stories vertically. Real shame because NBC4 is a very good news source. I still visit them on my PC, but not on iPad. Hopefully this will be fixed at some point; perhaps I’ll try again in a few months.

An ok app but a bit slanted...
The app is ok but the news tends to be a little slanted towards liberal politics and many other media outlets share the same political outlook. News organizations need to be totally impartial and cover the news equally. Too many times, the media chooses not to cover an important news story because they disagree with the political slant to them.

No app support - “my location” gives me weather for another city
It says rain is going to begin in my location, in Glendale. Well, I live in Sherman Oaks. Location sharing: The radar shows my location correctly yet the weather I get is for 15-20 miles away. Pretty useless when I’m looking for rain alerts. Second, when you click the general feedback link in the app, it takes you to a page that says fill out the form below. The problem is there is no form below. So instead I have to resort to writing you a crappy review in the Apple App Store. This is what happens when you allow teenagers and interns develop an app.
