I’ve had the app for quite a while and felt compelled to write a review in the hopes all the good it provides for local news particularly the notifications of local breaking news with the 1-2 liners even on a lock screen. Unlike the large 24-hr news stations where it seems EVERY story is “Breaking News”, the 10/11 app folks do a great job of being selective so we the user aren’t bombarded and remain alerted as opposed to numbed.
On the other hand there are so many links by “ sponsors” and no evidence there is any journalistic approach or basic vetting to ensure the same commitment to quality news with quality reporting, sound sources and verifiable to the same extent that the local 10/11 News team does. I realize the sponsors are paying and essentially making the app possible, however seems that every time I open the app every page has multiple sponsored links with headlines that appear to be news yet many are filled with falsehoods, no basis in mainstream, fall into a category of writing that is deceptive, misleading and perpetuates falsehood. In this day and age it ALL THE MORE important to remain steadfast in the commitment to Truth and honor the the sacred role & responsibility the Press has in our Democracy. When on the air we hear all the time “this program is sponsored by...” and we then expect to see a product commercial for that particular sponsor. The electronic wireless has launched us into so many new capabilities that are frankly awe-inspiring but with it has also come a wave of attacks on the trust between the People & the Press, leading to speculation, unable to distinguish that which is true from what is deceptive.
Also if you’re going to have a story, then there should be more than a paragraph that displays so one doesn’t have to click “next page” so frequently.
Also when there is a Breaking story and an alert notification is sent, if it’s so recent and nothing has otherwise been written or recorded then don’t let the link from the notification proceed. Those of us who see all the alerts know you only put out important relevant news and understand it’s too early to know more. For example a convenient store robbery at say 3:30a, you notify us, and have said, “more info at 5a morning news program, etc”
If the local news alerts from the app were not so selective, making it a very useful and helpful alert, I would have rated the app a 2. And that is because of the sheer number of deceptive sponsor “headlines”. I expect the ‘most-trusted news team’ to fervently protect that earned title from anyone or any sponsor paying to call it into question. Thank you.
Can't get to the news due to ads 2/5
Lately ads are blocking my access to the news stories. Not helpful.
My local news wherever I go 5/5
This app lets me know what's happening in "my neck of the woods" wherever I am at any time. News is news but my local news is part of my everyday life. Thank you 1011. Although the spelling and grammar certainly leave a lot to be desired. Doesn't any literate person proofread these stories?
Needs work 1/5
Some tabs like closings take FOREVER to load. A lot of crashing, etc
New app is terrible 1/5
First it changed to a news app from weather which was fine. Weather was still first now with this new "update" it's hard to even get weather for the area you live in and you can't click individual future days to see the details. Completely ruined a decent app.
School Closing List 4/5
Love the app. Hope Central Community College can be added to the school closing notifications list.
Love it 5/5
Love the app it's really helpful 😊😊
Used to be good. 1/5
The new update has ruined the app. I hate it.
Crashes on stories without picture 1/5
By Part time help
There is at least one story a day that causes the app to crash. It is the one with the 10/11 symbol on it. I just came in to rate this app and realized I had already given it one star for crashing with the story described above. Wish you could give less than one star.
Great app! 5/5
Especially good for weather news. But all around good app for news too.
Never Works 2/5
Downloaded this to watch the news live. It NEVER works. I check everyday at 6am and 10pm. And I get to watch the news maybe 3-4 times a weeks. Maybe.
Good News - Horrible Notifications 3/5
A great source for news when browsing but notifications never lead you to the article.
Like this app very much !
Upgrade won't load 1/5
It's now stuck in upload mode, unusable. Can't stop the upload, can't delete and reload either. Fix it please.
Crashes more than any app that I have
Good with Issues 3/5
The initial rerelease last year of the up was great, but with the subsequent updates it is starting to get back to the level it was at before the rerelease. Live streaming support could be better, including removing the blank ad at the beginning of streaming, and making it more Air Play friendly for streaming to an Apple TV without it constantly crashing out of the stream or having the failed (no streaming presently available) message pop up but still play on the TV. The weather portion of the app is awesome, but the news side leaves room for improvement. It would be nice if Lincoln headlines could be separate from Nebraska/state headlines, much like how Central Nebraska & North Platte news is. Load time could be improved.
What's happened? 1/5
Use to be a great app., but just like their news coverage it's went off the rail!
Functionally impossible 2/5
I'm sure this app would be great if I could actually use it. However, any time I try to view a story an ad pops up and opens Safari.
Weather text alerts 3/5
By Miss Text alerts
I used to get text alerts for weather. Now I don't!
It only looks like I can sign up for Facebook or Twitter alerts.
I do not have either of those accounts !
Bring back text alerts -please Bring back the text alerts !
Great app for news 5/5
Was having some issues but now is working 100%.
Finally You Have An app 5/5
Just downloaded it and will open it as soon as I'm done with this review.. I wanted it for the weather! Thank you for coming out with an app! I live in Norfolk but still love 10/11 news!
Well organized 5/5
This app is well organized! And when winter school closings are happening, I know I can depend on this app in finding out in the fastest way if my school is closed. Also beware that current news and happenings are constantly updated! Great app!
Great App 5/5
Works fine,it's a good app.
Bad app 1/5
Your app stinks! Ever since you switched it crashes all the time and the weather isn't even updated. I use the channel 8 app instead. Thoroughly disappointed!
National news 3/5
By Doubled a
I still don't see the national news like u was told would be added
This app is horrible! Way worse than 10/11 first app. Very disappointing.... for the "number 1 news station" Do NOT waste your time with this app.
Worse app 1/5
By Robert synhorst
So the old app gave a place to click to download the new app but doesn't take you to the new app. Here's a tip. Add an update like every other app. Slower to download content. This is junk compared to the old one, which wasn't the greatest.
Not So Good 2/5
Videos take for ever to start and then are very choppy (even on wi-fi). Hard to find the app when searching. Runs pretty slow. I love 10/11 and it's previous app better but this looks like it has the potential to be great, please speed it up. Please fix :(
Couldn't find the app 3/5
May want to rename this app-can't find it by searching KOLN or KOLN/KGIN.
