The KY3 News App offers local news, weather and sports experience at home or
on-the-go. You can count on KY3 News to provide the latest news, weather,
sports and more in the Ozarks, southwest Missouri and northern
Arkansas. Requires iOS 9 or higher.
Huge opening ad
This is much better than the previous version, but the ad that pops up over the whole screen immediately on opening is too much. Do you really need a 5 second ad in addition to all of the ads in there regular news feed? I will be deleting and reading local news from a different source. Latest version is a huge battery drain. Reading two stories makes by battery drop 20%. Edit: the return of the ad on the splash screen has done it. I have deleted and switched to a different local news provider who still had plenty of ads in their app but are not nearly as intrusive.
Forced into ad while monitoring tornado warning?
I was in the middle of reading a TORNADO WARNING for a neighboring county, and as I am reading what counties are going to be in the path of the storm, and trying to determine my family's risk of being caught in its path, an ad popped up, and took over my screen telling me that I had just won a $500 Walmart gift card, and it would not let me go back to the tornado warning. I had to quickly switch to a different weather source to finish reviewing the warning. Considering the nature of the storm, I am highly disappointed that this happened, and this is something that should be fixed quickly!
Enough with the advertisements
Storm sirens sound and taking shelter in the basement. When we needed a weather update, we got a 30 second commercial. 30 seconds doesn’t sound like much but it is when you need to know where the tornado is. There is an advertisement when you open the app. Another between forecasts and video. One more at the bottom, then you have watch one every expletive time you up a video. I would gladly pay for a version of both the KY3 apps to not have to deal with the stupid advertisements. I am going to delete this one until the do something different.
Great Source for Local Ozarks News!
The KY3 app is a great source for local Ozarks news, sports, and accurate weather forecasts. I use it several times a day. The audio weather alerts are especially valuable in these hills. I would give this app five stars if there weren’t so many advertisements on the display throughout the pages of the app. I would gladly pay a few bucks for the app without ads. NOT A SUBSCRIPTION, but a one time charge.
Seems Like Only Bad News
I have installed and deleted this app several times over the years. I just now deleted it ... again. I try to look for information that I can use and help myself and my family. In the end however, it’s the negative news that gets the headline and I just do not need any more negativity in the world. Also I feel that it is a little ridiculous to have to close the Cherokee Firearms advertisement every time I open the app. KY3 is fine as a reporting agency. The choices of what make to the app however makes it “Not the Place to Be”.
I’ve had many issues with this app. I have had a problem with trying to view a tornado warning to find out if my family needed to move to the basement when an ad popped up and covered the whole screen where I could no longer see the weather warning. Every time I went back in it happened again. Recently the app has stopped working altogether. It either kicks me out as soon as I get in or won’t let me in at all. Unfortunately, I’ve had to delete the app because if these issues.
Liberal reporting in 90% conservative region
I don’t understand why your station is biased and trying to adhere to national liberal media standards? This is a conservative dominated region. It is obvious by the reporting and personal opinions of the anchors. In public schools locally they are forcing kids to watch CNN locally without permission from parents and we know CNN is liberal. Why is this happening? Are you aware of your region and what appeals to them? Do you really care about local citizens and what they want to watch? Remember the majority is what pays the bills such as advertising etc.
Worst app on phone
I hate that I rely on this for local news. It locks up every other time I use it. The AD causes me to search for other options. It has not had any real design changes in years. Hate how unfriendly the images are and videos rarely load without significant wait time. The app locks up almost like clock work, every other time I try and use it. It’s strange to me that no one at KY3 uses this app - if they did they would have someone fix it.
Terrible Terrible Terrible Terrible Terrible!! One terrible for every star you don’t have.
Horrible app. Crashes not just the app but completely shuts down my phone. Maybe KY3 can’t afford to pay an editor. I would think they could based on the payroll they’re not paying to get good reporters. How about change up the stories that you guys keep on the news app for days and days. To bad you don’t have multiple Steve Grants or Lisa Roses’!!
What is the deal with ky3 apps
Does anyone care that your news and weather apps are almost utterly useless now? I can’t even load the weather app 75% of the time and now the news app will just fill my screen with ads or the loading page just takes forever. Come on ky3 this app hasn’t worked well for over a year now. Please fix this. I love your station for news but I can’t stand your apps!
Your app crashes daily now ever since you added the automatic ad that you have to cancel out of. I understand the business aspect of it but it’s ridiculous how many ads you have in all of your stories. Deleting and won’t download again unless you fix the crashing problems and report news as opposed to selling advertising.
Crashes, too many ads!
Update: fixed the crashing issue but added ads that look like news articles, misleading you to click them, also ads with click bait headings! Deleting the app! The app crashes consistently, also I understand having ads but on every single video and every time I open the app.
Too many ads!
I know you have to pay for the app somehow, but when you added the huge opening page add you lost me. I am deleting the app. There are many people who will pay a dollar or two for an app just so we don't have to deal with ridiculous ads while we're trying to read the news.
Ads out of control
Ads on this app are beginning to impede my ability to navigate with ease. ESPECIALLY while at home where my Hugh's net internet "connection" is poor, at best, and cellular service is even worse. I plan to check out the other local news apps for comparison.
App freezes up frequently
KY3 is my favorite local news channel. I wish the news articles didn’t freeze up, forcing me to abandon their app and seek local news elsewhere. 10 nicknames later my review is rejected due to the name previously being used. Coincidence?
