News alerts should be newsworthy
I live in Lake County, and PAY additional money each month to follow channel 3 news which is, in my opinion, the best news coverage. Having said that, when I receive a news alert, I have to wait sometimes up to 5 minutes to open the alert and read what it is. Also, I wait that long and then read something that really is not all that “news worthy”. Please fix with your next update the alert delay because sometimes the information is important and should be read right away.
Long time user
I have had the KCRA App for a long time, I deleted it for about 3 months because I felt the content was mostly sensationalized pieces that had nothing to do with our local area. I added the app back recently, i’m still disappointed, some of the content has gotten better, however, the feature of pop up ads while reading an article has become beyond annoying. I know advertising is what makes the app free, I have no problem watching an advertisement before a video plays (it is annoying however I understand it makes the app free). Yet when just reading an article an advertisement pops up and blocks the entire screen and when it’s over I touch the X icon in the upper corner and the ad goes away for a few moments giving time to read just a few lines of the article and then the advertisement pops back up again. I changed settings for the app. I’ve deleted it and added it again and when reading the articles the pop-up ad comes back again and again and again and again. I can’t even read a full article. I’m done with this app.
I like the increased amount of stories, and the old app would often not display pictures or play videos, but this app has gone overboard on video. First, you have to scroll through large video still to find the news stories. That is slow. Then you have to wait and watch a thirty second commercial before each and every video. 30 seconds of ad before every story is ridiculous. Also, they have stories categorized by local communities. I wish they had a category for regional news. You would think a news site that bills itself as serving Northern California would have thought of that. If they don't tweak a few things I will not use the app much. Too few news stories as well, and some are stale old news. To keep a story that says "fire breaks out" for weeks is misleading.
I have used and really liked this app for several years. However, in recent weeks, I haven’t been able to read all the content of many articles. Sentences will be left unfinished where an ad is stuck in the middle of an article. I haven’t been able to get rid of the ad, or to find the rest of the article. Instead, the article is often continued without ever being able to complete the section I was reading. I am not always in a location where I can view a video, so it’s important to be able to read the article in it’s entirety. KCRA 3 has been my favorite local news & weather station for more than 30 years. While I will continue to watch it on TV, I’m considering looking for another local news app on my iPhone.

I love your app… Not only locally, but because I also work with a fire agency for California, I am alerted with all the local news which really helps me know what’s going on daily! Im out in the field for a month and sometimes month and half at a time! I really appreciate all that KCRA has done to keep me Inform with the local news. Thanks for keeping me informed !!!! love your staff , love the information and appreciate your honest news and Mark Finan is Especially important to me because of the fire weather and the humidity… Thats very important for the job that I do thank you!

The app needs to be worked on.
The reason that I’m giving this review a three star rating is because I hope the IT will fix the problem. I enjoy the app and would like to read the news when I wanted to instead of only when I get an alert. Whenever I attempt to read and watch the news on the app without getting an alert it won’t open up. It always goes to a blank screen with a small notification to retry. In addition to that I can’t locate contact numbers. I’ve tried to report the issue but couldn’t find how to contact. I hope this gets resolved as we travel quite a bit and it would be wonderful to be able to use when away.
Why All the Ads/Commercials??
Ok, I’m a businesswoman. I get it. Ads and commercials equal revenue, but at what cost?? I’ve gone to KCRA Channel 3 news for as long as I can remember-Stan Atkinson Kaity Tong ring any bells? So, when I found out about the app I dove right in. No questions. No Reviews. I just trusted!! What in the world??? I am sick of the commercials in between EVERY video I click on. That’s nothing like television where they/you have 10 commercials between segments!! Every video!! It’s ridiculous. I’m over the ads in between most stories!! If I want constant ads I’ll stick with the Sac Bee—which after reading it for 50 years—I pretty much ignore it. (I feel guilty cancelling because they are struggling! Truth) Unlike the SacBee there are quite a few local television channels that offer the news! I do have options, but I do love my KCRA!! Is there ANY way to show my the commercial ONCE every time I open the app? Like I said—I understand the need for advertising, but to keep it in perspective—I get so annoyed by the commercials—I wouldn’t even shop there!! And PGE? I’m over them too!! Love ya, but I’m thinking of uninviting you for Xmas this year!!
App doesn’t do KCRA justice
KCRA is great for covering local events (we just had an officer involved shooting on my street and the KCRA helicopter was here rapidly providing live video!) The app however leaves much to be desired! Every time you want to read a small article you have to watch an ad. Each time you log in to the site you have to watch an ad. It’s so annoying when you are attempting to get news that impacts your life and that if your fellow citizens! The articles don’t seem to be complete either. I could be done better to fit with the quality of KCRA!
I grew up with KCRA television and even when I moved to Truckee for 20 years I was still able to watch it. But this app is NOT YSER FRIENDLY!! I use my iPhone 8 and I think that it is a bust. I don’t care for the ads that play whether you want them or not, PLUS if you get the ads it is the same one for every article. I’m tired of seeing Mercedes Benz commercial’s, and the other commercial’s as well. The only ones that I don’t miss is the BUZZ DRIVING IS DRUNK DRIVING, possibly because I had a drunk driver that hit me and cost me money in 1979. But that’s another story, I much rather watch KCRA then use their app, but in a pinch it is better than nothing, JMHO. Peace out, 🙏
I really do like this app especially the weather and breaking news updates. I whole heartedly agree with everyone else about the excessive commercials. A few I have annoyingly memorized. It’s like being stuck on the Small World ride at Disneyland. I wonder if the owners of the commercials know how often their adds are obsessively being played. I would give 5 stars if it wasn’t for the layers of adds to get to the news.
Weather only good thing about app
The only reason i like the app is the weather. I can at least pan out to see what’s going on in the rest of the country. Your bulletins the majority of the time is old news sometimes two and three days old. Come on get your act together. Your news alerts aren’t readable unless you click on the alert while it is still displayed. After it disappears if you go to the app it not there and won’t be for several hours or more. Your political stories are biased and only take the side of the Socialist Libertards. Build The Wall, get rid of illegals, State of Jefferson 51st state, stop giving welfare, housing, education, medical and food stamps to illegals, we couldn’t receive if we were in there country.
Pop up ads
Lately, about every other story that I try to read has an ad that keeps popping up over and over and starts to play a video. Sometimes these ads pop up after every sentence I read and I eventually give up and don’t read the story. I play rain sounds from my phone on a Bluetooth speaker at night and every time I open up the app (if I want to read news in the morning before I get up), it turns my sounds off and keeps trying to play video ads. The app has been ridiculous lately! I have complained to them and sent then feedback about it because it is so frustrating but I haven’t gotten a response. It’s been a few weeks and they clearly haven’t fixed it!
It’s okay but needs work.
This app is not the worst, but not the best either. A LOT of ads that come blaring on when trying to read news stories and before video of the news. Trying to scroll to read a story and constantly hitting more ads that are scattered throughout. It just feels like a lot of work to read the news you want to read. News stories aren’t arranged in any particular way either. For instance, would be nice to have local, regional, state, national & global. Just a suggestion. Still staying with this one, as KCRA is my fave local news to watch! Just the app needs help. ;-)
The Article regarding the Dems impeachment stated inaccurate info. Based on far left biased democrat lie of that party as a factual statement that President Trump 'pressured' the Ukrainian President Zelensky. Pres. Trump exposed this fake scandal not only by releasing the transcripts for everyone to read (which many folks did) and the Ukraine President Zelinsky set the matter straight himself when he told The MSM that he "was NOT PRESSURED" to do anything for the U.S. Nevertheless, former VP Biden told the whole world that the former Ukrainian President they would not get United States money if he doesn't fire The prosecutor looking into his son getting corruptly set up for a $50,000+ Per month job as a big shot in a gas co. Hunter had no experience in. That is BRIBERY AND QUID PRO QUO!!! But you will not learn that from KCRA or Fake News.
Grateful for you!
While I was growing up and raising my family in Sacramento, KCRA TV was always there to inform and educate me and keep me company throughout each day. Now that my husband’s job has taken us across the country, I am grateful that I can still count on the KCRA app to fulfill the same function. Since I can no longer read the Sacramento Bed without subscribing (we cant afford that), thank you so much for always being there to keep me informed on what is happening at home!
