Good news - Horrible App
The reason I’ve used this app for so long is because it’s got good local news. The reason I’m deleting it now is because it’s a horrible app design. First, They post the very same ad into every single article. That’s to say, there’s only one advertiser that is getting their product displayed! In giving hundreds of ad feedbacks that I keep seeing the same ad and that I’m not interested in their product, I get a Google acknowledgement and then it pops it back on again. Next, the app is full of fake news stories that lead you to articles that FOX never wrote. Last, The real FOX news stories are so few that this app repeats them as you scroll down through the list. They typically have around six new stories, a couple old stories, and then all that repeated. Well, here’s my feedback to the black hole of app administration. I’m done with this horrible app and deleting it.
Happy I ditched the KCRA app for FOX40
I left KCRA’s insulting ad-fest of an app for this one. I enjoy the app for reading the news and am grateful that it is in both video and article form. The proofreading is mostly accurate and, perhaps most importantly, readers are not inundated and overwhelmed by ads like KCRA. I would give 5 stars but the live stream often loses sound and crashes. NOTE: I voiced one concern one time and have seen the problem resolved. FOX40 listens! Thank you
FOX 40 does Apple know that your app is not listed under location service? Yet you all are using my location without my permission. I’m going to report you all to Apple. I’m sure you are breaking Apple’s terms of service. It’s rare that I go to your app, but I noticed my location was being monitored from your app earlier. I see FOX 40 Weather under the Location tab, but not FOX 40 news. I’m thinking it’s against the law to monitor someone’s location without their permission.
They show the same stories over and over and over. Ugh. I’ll see the same story on my page 5-6 times in one day and NO ONE has commented. They also re-post old news. I’ve commented about this but it does no good. Whoever is managing their tweets needs more training. If they don’t improve I’m unfollowing
Update makes phone overheat and crashes
I loved this app until the July 2 update ... now it makes my XS Max overheat and the app crashes multiple times when refreshing to load new stories. Hopefully it will be fixed soon, because a lot of local news is offered in the app and I like Fox 40.
Great local news for our Sacramento Valley. They also have our backs on World News that can effect us.
I appreciate unbiased actual and factual news without personal opinions.
For a news app, this is pretty neutral and factual. One of the few I read.
I am enjoying this app very much. It is clear concise and easy to use
Glad to have you back
All the videos I’m trying to watch are in a constant 1 second playback loop. I see with it could be looking into and resolved.
Since their untested update, it crashes all the time. They do nothing to fix it. Almost useless now
Fix app please
This app use to work great now it freezes and you have to continuously re open the app
I did not have this app prior to the update so I can't compare it to it's old version, but compared to other local news apps, I dislike how this is setup. It loads way too slow when you choose an article to read. Moreover, the other apps are a lot more organized. I'm giving it two stars because I do like the live streaming option, and there are articles that are not covered in the other news apps. As I check my phone every few hours for news updates, I generally use this app only once per day to see if I missed anything because the loading time and format is such a deterrent.
Best Sacramento option
I used to exclusively use the channel 3 news app, but absolutely hated the updated version from this last fall. After deleting the channel 3 app, I tried several other local news apps. I have found this Fox 40 app to be the best and most usable. More actual typed articles most with video of you want. Commercials are a fact of life now I guess...:(
