Only One Thing to Improve
I love News Channel 5! In twenty two years, I have seen only one story that was poorly handled. That one piece was based on a parent's account of a school employee mistreating her child. The person she accused is one of the three most amazing teachers I have worked with in my forty-seven years. Other than that situation, you are on point! You approach us openly, professionally, and in the most confidential manner possible. Many of you are aware that a number of us are occasionally physically and verbally assaulted by children, as was the person covered in the referenced story, usually students whom we recognized as needing a great deal of help. We always tried very hard to involve the families, the school, and outside professionals, as well. After all, as you know, every child deserves a proactive TEAM approach...socially, emotionally, and academically!

Quick information
I like this app ability to keep me informed when I don’t have time to catch the local news it also allows me to go to their investigation section and find out about people who Phil Williams or one of the many reporters have uncovered some of our politicians or just everyday people who violate our laws, and most stories have led to criminal prosecution. On this app you get more information then the actual newscast with links to document that their newscasts just doesn’t have time to show also we now have winter tornados becoming common more than snow and their weather app is a must have I’ve installed this app on my iPad, desktop and cellphone I’m a native of Nashville so if I’m not able to tune into the live newscast this app is most effective.

So far so good (will update)
The items & stories that I've clicked on have worked very well. I haven't explored every item on the app at thistle time. For local news at any time the News Channel 5 app is great. Once while I was traveling it became very valuable. I was almost 3/4 of the US away from Nashville and was still able to follow a story that kept unfolding not only daily; but, hourly. Newschannel 5 informed, protected, and prepared me before I arrived back to my home ! After having the app installed for about a year or so I have found that on occasion the app alerts can sometimes get annoying. I just filtered them down a bit and I am still I’m h; but overall, News Channel 5 still ROCKS! Thank you News Channel 5!💯❤️

Can’t zoom in on pics.. still love the app
Only reason I’m giving them 4 stars is because it is so frustrating that I can’t zoom in on the pictures that are on top of the story.... if they would fix that one little thing I would go from 4 star to 5 star... other then not being able to zoom in on pics the app is wonderful and always on top of the news stories. All in all this app probably does deserve 5 stars but I’m hoping this not being a 5 stars review that they will see it and fix this one simple fix and be able to zoom in on the pics.. it just frustrates me not being able to zoom in and read what’s on the page like when the hackers hacked Murfreesboro water dept I want to be able to zoom in and read what it says and be able to see it myself! Thanks news channel 5 keep up the great work and fix this minor issue!

A Kentucky girl
This Kentucky girl loves channel’s where I go for news and weather.. I never miss them unless I a good reason. I use this app for the headlines and stories when I miss the real thing and I can stream it all when I get back home..but the app lets me know what is going on until I can watch it at home..there’s not a weather person on any of the other channels like Bree Smith..she takes the time to explain what is going on and what we can expect from it..I love this app to keep me updated on what is going on..

Channel 5 has been the choice of my family to watch since I was a little girl. I’m 63 now and Channel 5 is still my choice. It’s like family. Good people reporting the news, whether it’s good or bad. It’s my choice to receive the news of the day, local, international. Sports, politics and entertainment. Don’t forget the weather. Their coverage is superb. Informational consumer topics. Local news covering the Channel 5 viewing area and surrounding counties. News Channel 5 is my choice and I’m sticking with it.

Great Station
I've relied on News Channel 5 all my life. I'm 47 & I grew up watching Chris Clark as a kid with my family. I live across the line in Ky but have always relied on channel 5 for the most accurate & up to date weather & news. You guys do such a great job! I would just like to ask if you could please fix the interactive radar to be more user friendly. That's all! Thanks for all the hard work!

We prefer NC5 to both our local coverages on TV and by App! Even with the coverage of news targeting our communities this Station provides much more information, quicker and more accurately. The teams are professional, enjoyable, believable and almost always right! It’s a pleasure to watch. Thank each and every one of you for your professionalism!

Outdated News
This app is consistently behind in releasing news. Each time I open the app the same news from a day or two days ago is still there & that days news is nonexistent. Rarely current. Although I do love the channel 5 TV news this app has faltered. If it continues to lag behind I plan to ditch the app for one of the other local news stations. Prove me wrong

Don’t care for constant requests for money
I like the app the news coverage but the recent change to having a pop up ask me to pay for enhanced content every time I load the app is annoying. I now rarely use the app. I understand you have to make money but having to say no every time I open the app is not annoying me into paying, it’s annoyed me into almost never using.

I enjoy the ability to keep up on local news for middle TN. I also like to keep up on the local weather. The only thing that I find an issue is that weekend weather is not current or updated like weekdays.

Good content. Lacks editing at times.
The app is very easy to access and works well consistently. I use it on a daily basis. Sometimes the articles have an embarrassing amount of typos, but overall quality app.

Skip if on an older iOS device
This guess this is what happens when you outsource an app to India. The app is not optimize for older devices. And there are no other features to the radar other than what happened 30 minutes ago. I guess they want you to watch the actual broadcast so they can scare the hell out of you with their 24/7 doom and gloom weather reports.

Video is horrendous
I have been trying to keep up with the Virus by watching the mayors briefing everyday and I have to say your video streaming service both on the website and app is almost unusable constantly freezing and buffering. I will probably be going to a competing news crew soon.

App Crashes
The app freezes up after closing each story. I have to reopen the app each time I want to read the next article. This has been ongoing for some time. I’ve been waiting for an update to correct the issue; however, it’s still ongoing.

Uninstalled this app specifically due to the fact that every time an eyebrow was lifted in the Holly Bobo murder trial, it was classified as BREAKING NEWS and thus immediately pushing a notification to my phone. I would literally get a notification about that trial every hour for over a week. Nobody cares. Classify your news appropriately.

Logic wrong
Tonight’s stories. First - opening stage 3. Next - COVID 19 cases in area on the rise! Does that seem wrong?! If cases are on the rise, pull in and self quarantine. And for heaven’s sake, don’t depend on the government to tell you what to think and do!

Smaller font, please
At the current font size, headlines partially display about 25 characters. I'd be more inclined to reading articles if I could see the full headline at a glance.
