Not that positive feedback
The app is buggy. Crashed until I reinstalled it. After update. At least it must be a communication from the development team about the update. That might be easily detected if tested, which does not seem to happened. Video- it was mentioned in several comments- you can and perhaps must make full screen when you flip the device. You may use the libraries and methods that already there. Adds - beyond ridiculous. You play the adds content then throwing another picture add after which the video content is not played. The user must play the video again and watch another add preceded the video content. No feedback/comments available. Is that how good quality product being delivered? Understanding that the developer does its best.. maybe it worth to find someone qualified to do the work? Maybe it worth to rethink the marketing model? There are standards in app design and development. This is 2019. You are representing the city.
This at first was an awesome app...now it is getting bogged down with unnecessary ads and duplicated stories. Also the stories have a lot of misspelled words and are hardly updated once posted. Another difference is the reporting of news on the weekend seems to be non existent or very vague and again there are a lot of editing errors or the stories never get updated although they say “Stay tuned for updates”. Live5 News used to be my favorite until the quality off the app went down. I hope they correct these issues.
Used to be decent
This used to be a go to app for local news. Now it is apparently nothing more than an attempt to print the most depressing news they can find, and if there aren’t enough local murders, robberies, and teachers who do bad things, they go across the nation to find more of the same. Just scroll down on any given day, if you can get past the constant bad grammar and misspellings. Today - “the robbery approached the pharmacy counter.” Come on, you can do much better across the board.
The worse app on playing videos! You always have to watch an ad then when you play video and of course you need to rotate your phone to get bigger view . Then the video disappears and most of the time causes it to pause. Then you have to scroll up to find it all over again. Quality always blurry and video half off when trying to view full screen. Follow up stories . A lot of stories are told as developing and never hear anything else on story.
Growing up with Live Five News
Growing up watching the news with my family, we only and always watched LIVE 5 News. I didn’t realize as a kid that there was any other News team than Bill Sharp, Debie Chard, Joann Mack, Charlie Hall, and Warren Pepper.🤗❤️😇
Videos are buggy
I use to love this app, the developers need to fix the video playback. First you have to watch a ad video, which isn’t a problem, but if you want to see the video you have to rotate to landscape, and when you do the video stops and starts the ad video again. In landscape the whole screen is not visible when you try to adjust the position to see the video, the ad starts over again.
Recommend for everyone especially if you like your up to date news and weather
Love the app🙂
Bring back the old version!
Live 5 News used to have the best app of all the local news channels. Lots of varied and interesting content, both local and global, up-to-the minute news updates, with excellent graphics, it was my go-to news source. Now it’s generic and looks like the others, tacky graphics/fonts, mainly just crime stories. Such a shame.
Liberalism and push the fake agenda
Terrible “news” folks. They push their agenda on the public. Just report ALL the news in its natural and truthful form, Journalism 101. When they report on a perp, they leave out the most important aspects of the story. Whom ever is responsible for their social platform may want to try and read some of the articles published. Spelling and grammar errors galore. Embarrassing.
Very up to date
Always fast with what's going on in the city!! Watch it every morning from 5-7 a. m. And every evening.!!
Not only do they send me alerts with links that do not take me to the related article but to the entire feed where I then have to search, but when I need to know why traffic is backed up for miles, there is nothing there. I thought you guys were on top of things but no.
Poor grammar and spelling
I read the small articles every day but am sometimes dismayed at the number of grammar and spelling errors. The "check back for more updates" that is often at the end of articles is also frustrating because there usually are none.
So tired of pop-up ads and videos, and a total dearth of updates on weekends. Tired also of alerts that are just updates to previous, tired stories, and updates won’t clear unless you go to “updates”, and there are none. This shouldn’t even be offered on the App Store, as it’s just an “enhanced” browser. Amateurish and frustrating.
Great app but...
Waaay too many pop up ads. They should offer a paid App without advertising. I would pay it. Other than advertisements popping up all the time I enjoy the app. Very easy to use.
Live 5 news App
I like the old App better there was more news and less clutter and ads most people that are using the app have busy lives and are just try to keep up with what is going on in he area
