The KOMO News app delivers news, weather and sports in an instant. With the new
and fully redesigned app you can watch live newscasts, get up-to-the minute
local and national news, weather and traffic conditions and stay informed via
notifications alerting you to breaking news and local...
Video adds kill my battery & interrupt music
I have several news apps, but KOMO is my preferred source for local news. However, this app drains my phone’s battery & causes it to overheat within a few minutes of opening it. And if I’m listening to music on my headphones at the same time, the ads always pause my music. None of the ads in any of my other news apps do that. It’s really annoying & I may delete the app if it continues to be such a problem.
Live Broadcasts are Terrible
To read the news is fine but I was hoping to use this app to watch the news while getting ready for work in the morning but all I get are commercials. Just to see what would happen, I am watching my tv and turned on the app... “live” broadcast is definitely not live. Disappointing.
Kills your battery
I like the general format better than most news apps. You can read the highlights or drill into the details. But the stupid video adds just kill your battery. You can turn off WiFi and it is supposed to stop the videos but that doesn’t always work. Dump the video adds!
This app has always caused me heartache. It has never had any sound no matter what I do. I also like to read the news in landscape mode, but that is not possible with this app. I am a diehard fan of KOMO News on TV and would love to get the news on my device when I’m not at home, but I’m getting frustrated and will be using a different station from now on.
Very annoying. Also, I am sent an interesting headline — cool. Hit the link, it doesn’t go to THAT story! I do not have time to hunt & search, so I just use them as a reminder to watch the news when I get home. Also, I do not like your old weather app. There is no revised logo to inspire me into trying it again. Clean it up — I’ll give it a go.
Not iPhone X or higher friendly
Cannot close out (x out) videos because “x” button location in top right corner conflicts with iPhone screens command center pull down feature. Have close out app and reopen to continue reading news - just don’t watch anything video related. Stupid UI/UX iOS bug. Who does your testing?
KOMO Ad Server
Disappointed that news is not the primary function for a news app. It should be called KOMO Ad Server - it would be more honest. When you decide to prioritize ‘User Experience’ into your app and make it readable, I’ll think about re-installing. Until then, this app is not worth it.
Sound will not work when watching videos or live broadcast
Sound doesn't play during videos, and I know it's the app because I am getting sound in other apps just fine.
Does not work in dark mode
App stopped working in dark mode, this needs to be fixed. A little testing goes along ways. I also have a complaint with ad video auto starting while I am listening to music. Right now this is a failed app.
Hate the videos !
No matter the setting..pop -up advertisements videos automatically run . They shut off my music as I try to read the news stories. This is a constant problem.
Audio stops when phone goes to sleep
Just tried the KOMO app to listen to the radio broadcast remotely. Whenever my phone goes to sleep, the audio stops! This doesn’t happen on any other app when I stream radio stations. Frustrating!
Dark mode fail. Black text on black screen
Can’t believe these idiots didn’t test for dark mode. All the other stations did. King 5, KIRO etc. all displays text correctly when you pick dark mode. It worked before this update. What a fail.
App look great now add sound
This app looks like it would be great. You get the ability to watch the news in the morning on the app and don’t need to turn on the TV. Now if they would only add sound to the app it would get a 5 star review.
Too many ads
Too many ads, must watch one for every news video.
Can only be viewed vertically. Too many videos, not enough news.
