I live in Kansas City and it’s great to get notifications of things that are happening around me throughout the day! I know things before anyone where I work and the are like how do u know that? I’m like KCTV5 just sent me a notification it’s awesome. I’ve tried others but, this one is spot on! Would definitely recommend!
Good news, poor app; update needed
I get news from multiple local news outlets, but this was my go-to for unbiased news (my other local puts selective liberal stories out...not headlines). However, this app works in a manner that is frustrating. You hit the “go back” arrow in the top left corner and it will take you to the top o the article you’re currently in...not back to the menu. Then, ice back to the top of the article, I can tap the go back arrow multiple times and there is no response or a response after nearly 60 seconds. I just want news as I want it, as fast as I can squeeze it into my day. I spend more time closing this app out and rebooting to get o the articles I want than I do reading articles.
This is a good, functional app that downloads the news quickly and keeps you up to date. The only thing keeps by it from a 5 star is it can get annoying on the volume me of breaking news pop ups. This is probably a sign of our times but it can literally pop up break news and weather items many times a minute. How breaking of news can you have in a minute or two? Quality - 5 stars Quantity - 2 stars Just tone it down a bit guys.
Just moved to Kansas City and wanted to get up to speed with local news. I just want something I can open and get the gist of what’s going on. App is ad heavy, initial view only shows a couple stories then tons of icons for the various sections. Then there’s the alerts. They have an alert for everything. I had it set only for “breaking news” and was constantly bombarded with notifications. Even with everything turned off through the app I still got notifications. After about three days I deleted and will be trying the other local news apps.
The Best Out Of 3
It's a great place to read the news and great weather updates when it's bad outside! The people on the news are people just like us and they know it! It's a WIN, WIN, WIN!
Impressive live feed but one issue
I don't like how sometimes when I click on a story I received in a notification on my phone it doesn't always open to that specific story and to the home page. This is the only reason I docked a star. However, I love the live feed and additional information provided, such as recalls.
There are consistently both spelling and grammatical errors in the articles and push notifications. You would think journalists would take the time to check for errors. This morning’s push notification said: “A few rounds of rains are expected through out the day, including a isolated thunderstorm.” There are three pretty blatant errors in that sentence.
Serious lag time from touching a story to downloading the story. It’s enough lag that forces the user to touch it again. This places the user in the next story down the list. Touching the back button takes it to a blank white screen and need to restart the app. Deleting the app now and will try later to see if it’s fixed. Instead of rebranding update, try a functionality update.
I am totally enjoying the news lay out on the 10 pm news. I actually record it so I can watch it in the morning while I’m getting ready
I like your network channel news. you guys save lives of Kansas City people when it’s come to tornado or flood. Keep Working Hard
Wouldn’t it be just as easy to run the local commercials rather than just leave so much ‘dead air’ space? I believe the local offerings are more relevant to your audience. The repeated Sonic or Farmers’ commercials get boring and neither are businesses that I use.
Great app to have. If there is something newsworthy you know it! Keeps me updated and in the know.
Custom Alerts don’t work
I wanted this app mainly for severe weather alerts. I’ve selected off on alerts other than weather and I’m still getting all the other news item push alerts. I may uninstall and go with another local channel app.
Not too click-baity
The notifications are mostly local breaking news. Sometimes they get a bit click-bait-y.
I like it
I hate to have to choose categories and as a result have not watched 5 on my I-Pad for quite sometime, however watch Channel 5 on TV all the time. When I do chose a category the news is pretty good
