Unable to share/post anything!
You do not enable us to share any info/news. ALL other news media outlets allow sharing/posting from their sites. Some news needs to be shared to the public that do not have access to the news at the time of airing. Many people are glued to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. If you want more viewers, attract more viewers, don’t cut them off. Another pet peeve, get addresses correct. I do like when you show the actual street signs because you can’t screw that up, until the reporter states double avenues or double streets. Showing the street sign then quoting the actual address/street sign correctly is superb!

Poor streaming
I am an avid Channel 7news watcher. I wake up watching their news and drive to work every morning listening to 7News. Very comprehensive. However their streaming leaves a lot to be desired. It often freezes. sometimes video freezes but audio continues. Other times the reverse happens. The ads cut into the news. Sometimes ads or news repeat themselves. Like it goes backwards and I hear and see the same thing three times. Then sometimes the video freezes, the sound continues, the the video fast forward to catch up with the audio and once it does, it all rewinds and then freezes. Very frustrating. I stream live TV on DIRECTV all the time with barely a hitch. I stream movies all the time, without problems either, and from three different providers. So it has to be the 7 App. Please fix it. A Loyal customer

Glitches
I watch channel 7 news everyday but, their app doesn’t allow me to watch it as much as I want to because it crashes every 2 seconds which is annoying!! Then there’s a glitch where the commercials plat like if a dj is scratching a record!!! That’s super frustrating!! I am now looking for another app to watch my news on the go!! This is a horrible app and if I could give it 0 stars I would! If they can fix the glitches then it would be better!!

Great App !
I initially downloaded the app to track a recent Hurricane in 2017 - and kept it! The Channel 7 app has been a great tool to have at my fingertips. I get important news alerts in a clear and concise way. I simply tap on the news that I want to see, and leave the rest alone. I always have the option to go into the app when I have time to see more news. I have already recommended it to others. It’s great!

The app leaves a lot to be desired.
First of all, it is difficult to watch any of the news videos without getting hammered by ads, which always seem to work without freezing. However, if you try to watch the news videos... the weather forecast, for example, it will just close the app altogether before even running or it will just completely freeze. I rarely use the app anymore because of this annoying issue. I’ve used it primarily in the past for the weather and have rarely been able to watch the video forecast without first being assaulted by ads, and worse, the same ad every time - only to have the app close abruptly.

Poorly maintained app. Does not refresh for current news articles.
I know channel 7 is a good news station to use however, this app does not refresh so its a luck of the draw each time I open it as to whether or not I will watch yesterdays news or todays. Very frustrating! I do not have cable tv so I rely solely on the app and unfortunately it isn’t reliable. I just wish they would fix it so I could open it in the morning and watch the morning news etc. I don’t know if the station doesn’t input the news into the app or the app has issues either way it needs to be fixed. Good concept, terrible application hence the terrible review.

Good
It is good - although I always think there is room for improvement. I've noticed some other news channels with more updated and accurate info. I love WSVN it has always been my #1 news station, but I am looking forward to seeing them provide more. And maybe working more in the local communities.

Ads Data Mine You!!!
Their ads are data mining you. If you google search something on your phone then all of a sudden they show up, this is one thing on a laptop or desktop, but on your phone when the app is supposedly closed is another! Where I drew the line is when the app started showing ads that I never typed or entered into my phone, and where part of a conversation!!! Was talking with a co worker about a restaurant just outside of DCA airport, and at the time we just drove past it, and said the name and pointed it out. Then all of a sudden ads for that restaurant in DC start showing up, when I live in S. FL.! I checked to see if the app was accessing my microphone, and the settings said no, BUT CLEARLY they were!!! I know it’s a free app, but data mining their users shouldn’t be the price tag!! DONE!!

App issues but great
I’m a die hard channel 7 fan and love the app. The only issue I’ve had is where the app closes it self randomly for no reason. I’ve deleted it and reinstalled but no change. Not sure if that’s a bug but non the less I still love having my news on the go and on demand.

Annoying ads
The news info provided is ok and usually up to date but the one thing that killed it for me and made me delete the app, is the home page has a pop up ad that fills the screen and is almost impossible to get rid of. It’s clickbait that draws you further in. Doesn’t matter how carefully you try to navigate the home menu, this thing will trigger. Very frustrating

Love the App!
I gave it a 4 star, because I’m not getting breaking news alerts when news is happening. When a suspect is on the run in my neighborhood, I’d like to know as soon the news feed is uploaded. TV channels get it right away, the App should too. Other than that great App!! Keep up the good work.

My go to news app for South Florida!
From the news of the day to community issues, this is the channel to go to. Their reoccurring segments of Help Me Howard provide information that is helpful (and being copied by other stations now) and educational! Thank you Channel 7 for years of service :)

Closes out while streaming live
The only feature I use for this app is the live news stream. For over a month, when streaming live it closes out app or blacks out only to show the news casters say they’ll be back in mins. Commercial starts and then it blacks out, every time! It’s a constant battle of restarting the app and the hoping I can at least get 1 story. This needs to be fixed, most frustrating stream I’ve experienced!

Great app when working
I have been using this app for a while and the previous versions worked pretty well however more recently the app will close randomly when streaming the news. What is odd is that the adds play fine then when the news comes on the app closes. It is like only the adds work. Please fix this as I like to stream the news from WSVN which is not available on my cable network in Boca Raton

Storm tracking
Tell mr Ferro that I have watched storm forecast / warning for years now. However I don’t understand why he would remove the mark which advised 1/2 way in the forecast cone. I have spoken to a lot of people about this and they aren’t happy . Put it back and leave well enough alone . Channel 10 still has it. I would like to see it back or you will leave us no choice….

Too many ads
The sponsored "living well" reports are seriously irritating! They get in the way of the real news but even if you do try to click on them they don't function correctly and you can't read an entire article because it keeps sending you back to the first page. Almost ready to drop this app.

Crashes all the time
Been crashing all the time especially since the latest IOS and before but now it’s unusable. Can’t even open a article without crashing several times while trying to read. I believe the ads are causing most it it, so many trying to open while using the app. It needs to be fixed!

Slow app
The 7 app is very slow and often freezes to the point it needs closing and re-opening. Even opening this review page took at least a minute. I do like channel 7 but not the app. I do not have any issues with the channel 10 app so I usually use that one.

The Great WSVN!
I love the WSVN group of reporters! They are excellent in their delivery and The crew remains constant and the new Additions are excellent unlike other channels that have quick turnovers and dismiss high quality reporters for new ones Less able and probably will get paid less Money. I won’t mention names. You must Know who I’m talking about!! Keep on the great work! You may be copied but never surpassed!! Congratulations!!

Terrible
Every time i try to watch news using this app the app kicks me out. Eventually if I try numerous times, i can watch a few minutes before getting kicked off again. I am running the latest iOS update. Not sure whats up but its really bad. All i even get to see are the attorney commercials (convenient for them).

Glitchy Live broadcasts
The live broadcasts used to stream well without any issues, but recently there’s a terrible glitch that is causing a big lag and the broadcast is unwatchable. This is regardless of which signal you are using, different wifi signals as well as 5G+, all freeze up while streaming live news.

Needs to adjust how it lets us share stories. Very prehistoric in that area. Also when I get a traffic alert it just goes to maps and that’s it.
