Well, the malicious banner ad pop ups stopped. So that is good. And I guess at least adding the little “ad” logo on the ads makes it better, even if every ad is still clickbait crap. I know ads pay for the app, but I still hate seeing a “news” app littered with misleading clickbait links every couple of stories. “Related stories” is totally broken. Not sure how stories about Trump/Omar or other politics are “related” to a car crash. Seems “related” means “political stories to rile you up”. Besides that, and more of a general thing than just the app, please hire writers that can use proper grammar and please hire real editors. The number of paragraphs cut off short, typos and examples of poor writing is embarrassing for a “news” outlet. Don’t worry, Kare 11 is just as bad. Makes me ignore half the local news. Being first out with stories should not come before being accurate and actually proof reading the content.
Expand the page fast
I watch the 11AM news on this app because my home state is Minnesota (Twin Cities Area) and I’m out of state frequently. It is the best Twin City news app I’ve tried but I have just a few problems with it. If you try to stream, you must immediately expand the window after you touch the arrow to play otherwise it won’t expand to the full screen even after 10 seconds. The other issue is it sometimes stops during the news cast and you have to go trough the starting process all over again. Other than these issues, I love it!
Terrible!!! Can't even play a 30 second story without buffering.
This app is absolutely terrible. After a video ad plays for 15 to 30 seconds flawlessly a 30 second news story can't even play for five seconds without buffering. And this is with 5 bars LTE service. I find it amazing that all their ad way flawlessly but all of their new stories buffer within 5 seconds of playing. And continue to buffer every 3 to 5 seconds, doesn't matter how long they are. I expect a lot more than this out of KSTP! It should be noted that I have the latest version installed.
Ratings for new format
Do not like the new format. It is really difficult to track the current, up to date weather. It keeps old information so you think your looking at current until you look more closely & then realize it’s hours sometimes days old. The watch & warnings are the same way. Very very disappointed. I’m keeping this app but I’m going to try other local stations app.🙁
Do not like how the weather app was incorporated into the news app!
I really liked the previous weather app where I was able to receive separate alerts that are just weather-related. It bugs me that to receive weather notifications, I also have to receive news notifications. If there is a way to change this, I haven’t figured it out.
Advice to the developers
Stop sending push notifications with a headline resulting in a video feed about said deadline. I personaly( don't know about others) would like to read the article as oppose to watch it as firstly it's not available to watch and secondly I don't always have fast enough connection to watch streaming. Thank you :)
I have used this app for around a decade and love it. It's a must have for me. I am a very busy person, so I never watch TV. Therefore, I never get to watch the news on TV. This is my main "go to" for the daily news. 100% Satisfied! Great great app! You will be very pleased.
Not good for those who just want weather
The new upgrade makes me so sad. I’ve had the KSTP weather app on my phone for quite a few years. Just deleted it when I saw that there was not an option for just the weather. Also, when I tried to use the app the new radars were frustratingly hard to use. Same Wi-Fi, and the app also seems incredibly slow. Very sad since this weather guys are my weather guys.
My first source for news
When I want to check the morning news, I start with 5 News. It has the sections I want. A good blend of national and local news. After the latest update, each story appears twice as I swipe through the news. Only annoying, content is still enjoyable. After the latest update, I can no longer swipe left for the next story. Dislike having to scroll al the way to the bottom of the page.
KSTP is hometown news, with a hometown feel. Like a hometown, you learn to trust the people & reporters, to tell you the truth and news the best way they know how. And to be there for you when you turn to them. Honest, friendly folks with smiles. Thank you! Gail Blackmon
Immediately I noticed far more advertisements than the other local news apps, and one of the ads was a huge picture of a disgusting rat. Then I remembered, the ads and in particular this disgusting rat were the reason that I stopped using this app quite sometime ago. So, after all this time, they haven’t improved the quality or the quantity of their advertisements. Too distracting. Bye-bye app.
Format nice but refreshes in middle of use
It’s my favorite local news option but it’s so irritating when the list of news refreshes while I am scrolling down...and so I need to find again where I was just reading. I realize now that the refreshing is due to the ads updating. That adds to my frustration. I just close the app when it flickers and I lose my place.
My favorite app
Great for current local news! Love the weather reports and the radar map. I’ve used the radar map to view areas around the world in detail.
I recommend this app personally. I love the weather notifications. What I wouldn't recommend is putting news notifications on,if ur not the kinda person who wants to hear about ALL the news in text. Still a good app to use!
KSTP AWESOME NEWS STATION
KSTP is the only local station that I watch. There are many others, but this one is my favorite for content, accuracy, personalities, investigations and they bring the most up to date.
