Love Fox 5 but not the app
I have used the app for years to watch the news while getting ready in the morning; however, it has been giving me a great deal of trouble. I have had various issues in the past with its functionality, but for the past two weeks, it has gotten much worse. The app keeps shutting down just after it starts streaming. Earlier, it wouldn’t play most of the videos, but they seem to be working today, which made me think the streaming issue would also have been resolved. Nope! For some reason, the app works just fine on my husband’s much older iPad which even has less memory. My iPad and the app have all been updated, so I don’t know the cause. If someone could help me solve the problem, I would greatly appreciate it.
The app has a lot of delays in the past. Since they updated it I have no problems with it now. I moved to Florida a few years ago and I love being able to see all of the unique teams of reporters. The news teams give a fresh and diverse look at the local and national news story’s with a flair of personalities. Here in Tampa , it the same old non energetic, boring ,blond hair newscasters giving the “Only in Florida Type Stories. “ Feels just like being at home in the DMV using the Fox 5 app. Please add the smartcast technology to it so I can put on the big screen.
Grossly inadequate app/Great news station
I finally had to drop my review from three stars to one. Have any of the developers actually tried to live with this app? The notifications are buggy. The alerts have problems but even when I disable these annoyances, the app is basically useless for watching the live feed. Over the past year I basically have a 15% success rate getting the live feed to work. The commercials they try and make you watch are what kill the feed. Terrible job. The fox 5 news team is amazing and I love all the anchors. I'm a true fox 5 fan but this app is suboptimal and the developers have had enough time to get it right. I'll be switching my news team now because I have to get my news someplace.
Ok news provider
I have a few concerns with this app for news. I don't see the need to receive repeated notifications for the same news story within an hour. I noticed a tad bit of media bias in regards to the story's that are shown on this app. It is quite apparent as well the author of a lot of these story's often time injects a biased undertone in the articles they write. I have noticed as well the factual innacuracies in these reporting in terms of Race- Political- Historical. Overall it's ok for news but I would definitely gain information from various sources in order to receive an accurate account.
Best of the DC networks
Of the four DC networks this is the best app in my opinion. My one complaint is that you get an alert and even though you have it set to have a sound when it comes in, no sound is produced. I’m assuming this is a bug. But for breaking news it defeats the purpose of having alerts set if you don’t know it’s there unless you look at your phone periodically.
Excellent reporting of local and national news
Thank you for the professionalism you all display. Your support of seeking the truth is second only to your kindness to each other. Thank you for hitting on the stories that impact who America is as a nation and who DC is as a city. Do we stand for good, truth and beauty? Each of you urges the public to use truth to establish good behaviors, with courage, self discipline and, yes, a lot of cheerfulness!!! Outstanding! Thank you!
Fox five rating
It gives me information when I’m on the rode so I know where to go and how to get around traffic and what has happened and what the weather would be like when I’m not at home with my tv on at home and so and it gives me the important information on the news and the key facts of the news that why I have the fox 5 app 5 stars
Zero stars to Fox5DC’s app developer
Downloaded 60 or more days ago and almost never a able to find the content I seeking. Weather links send one upon an endless spiral to link after link, while ever suggesting one to download the app? Because, almost every link takes a user beyond the limited contents of the app. Receive steady stream of app notifications but most lead nowhere but dead links or to more suggestions to download the app... I’m deleting right after providing this review. Fox5 is a dependable news provider, this app and your web page is the opposite of dependable.
Just wanted to say I miss my Fox Five Family after 30 plus years Love everything you guys do we had to make a move from the DMV area to North Carolina to help my brother and sister take care of my Mom which is my brith place I still have the fox 5 app so i still keep up to what’s going on and when can i watch live can keep up the good work 👍🏾😎
Alert notifications won't clear
After you read the alert notifications the alert count won't clear. Every story that I open from my notifications it automatically open in my web browser instead of the app. I don’t like that. None of my other does, not even Fox New, just Fox 5, DC.
I am able to watch my favorite people in the morning. My nine year old loves you all as soon as she wakes up mom turn on... it’s already on Allison Seymour, Steve Chenevey, Erin Como, Tucker Barnes, Wisdom Martin, and of course Kevin McCarthy. I get update news, weather, traffic, and entertainment. I then with in my car for my daily commute. Fox 5 DC morning crew you all Rock in my book!!!
This is a great app. I recently moved to Texas After living in DC for about 10 years and came to love the fox five team. This app allows me to keep up with everything that still going on in DC including live broadcast through the app. I’ve never had any problems with it. Shout out to the fox five morning team at 9 AM 10 AM👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
Fox 5 and Fox 5 DC news for me.
Every day up to date local news and news across the nation; follow up news; close connections; on top of happenings around the world; long range caption; full and complete weather forecast and closures. Reaching out to children, the poverty stricken and the homeless. Truth about Donald Trump. Coverage of Donald Trump’s impeachment.
Open the actual story in the actual app
When I click on a notification the app should open the actual story that I click on not open the app then open safari to the home page. This has me searching for the story amongst all the other posts. Also, why have the app if it's just going to direct us to the internet? So I'm not only waiting for the app to open I am also waiting for safari to open. It's cumbersome.
Good app but...
My only complaint is that very often, when you click on a news alert notification, it takes you to “live” news rather than the actual story and the “live” news is almost never playing anything.
