Crashes before able to open
This app perpetually crashes upon launch or when attempting to read a news item. The current version isn’t the first to do this. And this version for iOS 13 is 2 weeks+ old, so fixes should have been made by the parent corporation, Gray. But this one is particularly charming, since it was simultaneous to the cable/ISP monopoly here changing (screwing up) it’s billing and notifications. I would guess that in a month or so this news app will update again, and stabilize for another month or two, followed by another found of the same. Maybe they should hire an outside contractor to write/update their app.
Annoying App Well Behind The Curve
I use this app to check the weather and local news stories. It's good for reading any story in BCS. But don't be looking to watch videos because it's one of the most frustrating experiences ever. Halfway through the annoying ad to watch the morning weather video and you tilt you phone to watch wide screen (like all other apps) and the whole app reloads, and you have to start the same ad over again! Overall it's a buggy app that needs some attention. Compared to other news/weather apps this one is behind the curve!
I got this app primarily for its traffic notifications feature. My coworkers always seemed to be well informed about when to avoid traffic jams on 6. When they told me about this app I got it. I am happy with the notifications and get to work on time by avoiding 6 when I need to. I don’t use the other aspects of the app as often, but when I do they seem to work well.
Won’t open on iPhone X
Poor app design...being close to Texas a&m you would expect better....I agree with poor performance in the other reviews, but with my new iPhone X the app will not open at all....sent KBTX an email and after a few days got a note back saying the would look into, but it’s been two months and app still doesn’t work..... don’t think they care about online users (or ad revenue from their advertisers) as long as people watch their television channel ....this app just made me switch to someone else
Not User Friendly
APP is awkward, cumbersome, and full of idiosyncrasies. Unstable APP, far behind the times. Navigation is poor to fair, missing an algorithm that is consistent and easy to figure out. The APP seems to randomly “do its own thing” rather than what I need it to do. It needs a rewrite rather than the numerous patches which come to the APP. Just having it open without looping back to my iPhone would be a good place to start.
Whatever they did recently with the advertisement ads is awful ! They used to be smaller so you could differentiate between news & ads but now they are the same size - too many & annoying because if you are NOT careful- you will accidentally click on THINKING you are moving to next story - but instead - you have clicked on an annoying ad then the spam starts :( I used to like reading on mobile but may rethink
Sorry, but this app is terrible. Will not load unless the app is deleted then added back. It will work for a short period of time then it starts all over. Had my phone checked just to make sure. Phone is not the problem, it does it on other phones as well. KBTX needs to fire their app developer. Every new version has worse problems than on previous version.
I don’t go into the app every day but I recently notice y’all have words flashing on your videos which is very distracting. I feel like that would not be good for someone who has epilepsy. So can you remove that please!!!! Thanks
Won’t even launch now
The previous version would crash a time or two, and then about the third time it would launch and everything worked fine. The latest version will not even open at all. I wish I’d never updated! I love KBTX and the convenience of an app with customized notifications, but now I have nothing. PLEASE FIX IT!
The grammar is always horrible. I’m not sure if anyone is editing the articles or if rough drafts are just being posted. The stories are always very politically one sided even when there is nothing political in the story. The weather forecast is usually correct, so that’s a plus.
App doesn’t even load
I’m currently using an iPhone XR on iOS12 and the app simply does not work. I get notifications on headlines but I click them to go into the app and get nothing but crashes and I never see the home page. Please don’t let your useless app perpetuate the stereotype that local news is a joke, I know KBTX is better than that.
Not worth a darn!!!!!
I live in this area so this app should be a must have for me but I hate it!!!! It never updates on the weekend and even during the week!!! I have some news apps that are on point with all of the current news. I have seen local news on those that never even show up on this one. Get it together KBTX!!!!!!
Stop with the advertising
The newest version now shows a commercial BEFORE the home page loads and you can read the alert that has been pushed. Does this means for every alert/breaking news that get pushed to alert your audience you have to first see a commercial?
Advertisements with a couple news stories mixed in
Way too many ads. Including the click-bait trash at the bottom of every page that look like real articles. Makes the while thing look very unprofessional and slow.
As if we don’t see enough ad’s on the app, now there’s an ad when you open the app. You have to close the add before the app will open. SO FRUSTRATING!
