“Improved”’app is horrible!
I’ve used the KARE 11 app for years now. It’s always worked fairly well and is a great place to get news and keep up to date. The redesign makes it almost impossible to share stories on Facebook, or other social media, and more than half the time the story I click on to share ends up posting as a completely different story. Tonight I was trying to post the mass shooting story with some commentary, and my commentary ended up attached to a story about moving to the right lane when driving. The commentary about yet another dead kid looked absolutely moronic attached to that post. The improvements are a bust in my opinion and I’ve ended up sharing from the Wcco app when I need to share stories on social media
Slow, returns to top of page, video plays with no sound.
Bad upgrade. The whole thing is slow. Scrolling through pages with full images, instead of small ones is time consuming. After scrolling down a page for a while p, choosing a article, and then wanting to return...it brings me to the top of the page I just scrolled way down in! Terrible. Return me to where I was just at! Videos for weather never play sound by default, they run but without sound. To get sound I have to tap the video, but then it rewinds for a few seconds, then plays sound with SUBTITLES. I don’t want subtitles, didn’t ask for them, don’t see a way to turn them off, and they cover some of the screen I want to see. BAD UPGRADE!
Each iteration of this app has new problems. It’s just not good from a user experience perspective, or performance. For example, why make me scroll through the articles with giant pictures? And, if you’re going to do that (which my husband actually likes), then at least have the app not randomly jump back to the top of the page while I’m looking at headlines. I watch kare11 as my normal news source but your app blows. And, some of the ads and clickbait are extremely inappropriate. I know the news isn’t always “family friendly” but you don’t have to this type of advertising in.
I like KARE11 weather because I live 145 miles west of the twin cities and the other tv channels weather does not get out of the metro. Here I can see what the weather will be doing out near Willmar and Montevideo. The news coverage also is just not concentrated around the Metro. Then there is Boyd Huppert, he does the best in coverage about special in special towns. Keep doing your best, a lot of watchers rely on you for your excellent coverage.
KARE 11 review.
I’m attached to all who present the news, weather and sports and all other programs as if they were family! Have total trust in what I watch and listen to! When I say everyone , I mean from the top employee to the one who starts a job there in the near future. I know two employees personally and Stacey and Cindy know who they are, and they shared a lot to me in our visits. That’s to all at KARE 11!
Best News App You’ll Ever Get
This app is by far the best news app. Not only they have notifications for all the current news stories, you can also choose if you want your notifications to be about news, sports, weather, etc. 10/10
I use this app pretty much every day for new & weather. I would have given it 5 stars, however as I live in Western Wisconsin they only list the severe weather warnings and watches for the state of MN, I have to get my info on WI on a different website. On the phone app it will show it as I have my settings set for it, actual website doesn’t show them. Actual website was “improv” but I don’t like it & prefer the older version.
I never leave reviews, but....
I am so disappointed by this new “upgraded” version of the KARE11 news app. I really enjoyed the old app and used it every day, but I might need to look elsewhere now. The format looks beautiful, but it is not user friendly anymore. I cannot watch a news story without watching an ad. On the previous iteration you only had to view an ad once and then you could watch multiple current news segments. Now after each story you have an ad in between and then you are launched into an item that is days to weeks old!
I’m truly surprised this has such high rating. Anytime I get a notification and I want to read up on the article it literally does not load. I constantly have to close out of this app and reopen it. And now they have pop up ads in the middle of the screen and what do you know the app freezes and I’m forced to close the app. Lastly the set up makes no sense it’s very hard to navigate and you don’t know if you’re clicking an ad or KARE11 content. Really hoping for some improvements.
A Buffet of Glitches & Poor Design
Given that I value Kare 11 as my go-to news source for MN it is beyond words how consistently frustrating this app is. Basic attempts to read news stories, or watch news segments, are frequently met with full app crashes. The design overhauls on the app seem to favor adding flair, rather than ensuring function. And don't even bother with the weather radar, depending on the version of the app there's a pretty good chance that there will be an ad completely blocking your ability to use the radar controls rendering it useless.
Difficult to navigate, contains old content, very hard to locate current stories, focuses too much on weather. Not at all user friendly. Seems that it was designed for the news staff, and not for their viewers and readers. Must have been designed by Weekend production crew, in between misspelled or misplaced graphics work.
Great for weather and school closings or delays.
I use the KARE 11 app mostly for detailed weather reports and to check for school closings or delayed openings. It’s easy to use for that, so it’s my go to weather app when I want to know more details than my iPhone weather app provides.
Love getting my weather
Love getting my up to date weather and news from Kare11. I appreciate Kare11’s efforts to provide on the spot news coverage without trying to shock and horrify me. If I want gore and gossip, I can turn to an entertainment channel. Ty Kare11! Keep up the good work.
Too many pop up adds lately
It used to be good. Now video advertisements pop up in the middle of reading an article or even when I try to leave feedback on their Feedback screen. I don’t even touch my phone and they pop up every few seconds. Very irritating. KARE doesn’t pay much attention to St. Paul. Stories hit National news before KARE picks them up. They need to pay more attention to new and less on Prep Sports.
KARE 11 app for iPhone
I have used this app since it was installed on my iPhone and love getting notifications and news updates as they occur, especially the weather report and warnings. Thanks again for your service!
