    Ads Ads Ads Ads Ads Ads Ads Ads Ads

    Noticing the recent uptick in ads, its WAY too much...20 second ad every time you click... utter torture. Ads blocking view above the fold. Deleting app after much enjoyment in getting my news here for the past year/s- it’s just too much... too much waiting, same ad over and over, and so slow to load anything. Bleh, so disappointing, especially as an optimum costumer and having forked over Thousands of $$, over the years. This just stinks, why cant i just enjoy a service. Update- now they took out the weather report from the weather section? I like to hear what the weather man has to say. What is the point if this app? I can look at pictures of clouds and suns on my apple weather... again, chipping away at every reason i use this app. I searched for traffic & weather and got a report from last May. Its September.

    Thumbs down for new “pushed” ads

    I use the news 12 app each morning with my coffee to get my news however recent”updates” now having ads auto open 10-20 seconds I to trying to read an artiste working my last nerve. I understand the premium s reason for such advertising but if I’m interested in the ad, I will click on it. It doesn’t need to auto open and be shoved in my face. What you get instead when this happen is a frustrated and annoyed viewer who starts to think of where else she may get her AM news where this doesn’t happen. Seriously consider disabling this obnoxious new feature.

    The app is new but glitchy!

    The News 12 app has a new logo and little things here and there but it doesn’t fix the #1 problem I have with this app and even the News 12 website: I can’t watch videos or News 12 Live in landscape mode. For some reason it will not allow me to put the video into landscape like it it used to, it will only allow it in portrait mode even when I click the enlarge button and turn my iPhone sideways. I do not have orentation lock on my iPhone by the way. Also this app sometimes crashes and has ads every second which really gets on my nerves. And the traffic section is gone. I deleted this app from my iPhone. Waste of time!

    Went from Bad to Worse, Don’t Even Bother

    Why do you guys keep ruining the live traffic and weather video feature? The last time you did this, you took it away completely without warning. Now it’s back, and you have to wait through over 3 mins of commercials! Also, News 12 “Plus” just means that they cluttered the actual content (when you finally get to it) with Non-Traffic/Weather related crap (which should have it’s own app). C’mon. News 12 Traffic and Weather should be just that, no exceptions, no frills as it used to be. I rely on that for quick updates through my phone. Now I don’t even bother. Fix It!!!!

    Love the app, am hoping for iPhone X support.

    Love the app, have been using it for a long time, and I especially appreciate today’s newest app update. Am hoping at this point that the developers add support for the new iPhone X, so that the app fills the screen entirely (I’ll email the developers and ask them if they can add this enhancement). Otherwise, it’s a great app and it keeps me updated on important events going on in the area 😊

    Might as well just watch it on tv.

    The app provides all necessary and desired information. But that’s if you can get it to open and work without freezing or it force closing before it even opens. I guess you can enjoy looking at the logo at most. Maybe that’s why they changed it? They really need to fix the bugs in the app. I don’t recommend.

    Snooze 12 Commercial News!

    Omg the app just keeps getting worse with each update! The news can never just have a 10 sec delay and start! You have to hit play to watch tv live,then have 1-2 ads, then the app pauses, then you must hit play again and pray live tv is not on an actual commercial break because then its more commercials. They dont need any more commercials, we already pay for the ads since you must be a subscriber to the cable company to get it. Now it also wants to play any region other then the actual region i want. Kill the Snooze, Just play the News!!!

    App still crashes!!

    What a worthless piece of garbage! This new update has done nothing for my iPhone or iPads. The app never gets any further than the opening screen and even that is in complete then it just crashes again and again and again. I don’t know what bugs were fixed in this l latest update, but it sure hasn’t done anything for the app on my devices. As I said, worthless piece of garbage cup. Unfortunately news 12 is the only local weather forecast I can get and since this piece of crap doesn’t work I’m left weatherless

    this app is and has always been HORRIBLE

    on the rare occasion i DO get a breaking news alert and want to read more about it, i click it and it brings me somewhere else where i can’t even find the article the alert was about! on top of that, the app freezes, then crashes and closes EVERY SINGLE TIME i open it after about 10 seconds. come on N12, you can’t fix an app that MILLIONS of Long Islanders would like to use on a daily basis. absolutely pathetic. worst designed news app on the App Store, and that’s saying something.

    Doesn’t work

    The new version, 5.1.0, actually added more bugs. Tried numerous times with complete dropouts, so I deleted & reinstalled. I actually got further this time - got to the beginning where you have to choose your region, but again dropped out. Needs another revision. I waited to see if this app was improved, but it has not. App worked beautifully until this new version. Still can’t stay open & the app help link says its invalid. I guess I have no choice but to delete!

    Location will not update!!

    For some VERY STRANGE REASON about 1+ months ago the app changed my default location to the Bronx!! I live in New Jersey & Every time I open app I have to change it!!! Maddening is all I can say. It used to work fine but NOT ANYMORE!! Stop touching stuff, you need to fix this, because I’ve stopped using it for my local weather.

    Perfect but...

    I don’t have any problems watching the news. This App is working good in my IPhone. The only complaint that I have is: why this App is not available to streaming on tv without using an Apple TV? Please do something about this. Thanks.

    Open and close

    As soon as you launch this app it closes. Not isolated and ongoing issue. I reached out an emailed news12 allowing them to know the trouble with their app, using a completely updated iPhone with this app updated and the response was “ call at ..... “ it was a 4 word response lacked any customer care or gratitude for allowing them to know users are unable to use their app. Will delete this app now

    Can’t stay in touch with home

    I’m a LI resident and long time News 12 viewer. I also have a second home in Cary, NC. I’ve always stayed in touch with LI streaming News 12 on my iPad. How sad that I can no longer view News 12 this way. I have an Apple TV, but not the latest here. Otherwise this would have been 5 stars.

    Consistently crashing

    I get updates and crashes every time I try opening the app. Erased and reinstalled still having the same problem. Plus I have tons of memory on my phone. Get it together please. Contact me if you need someone to fix it I know a few companies that can fix your bugs. Your website link on your app is down as well by the way.
