Not pleased with this app 1/5
The flow of this app is awful. I have to click on several different links to read or watch one story. An app should flow in a smooth manner. If you need assistance designing a much more user friendly app let me know. We can assist.
Too many notifications 3/5
They need to do a better job of deciding what’s truly notification worthy
11AliveNews App 2/5
Truly not intuitive. Strongly suggest the app designers see WSBTV or Fox5. 11AliveNews app looks and navigates like CBS46 app. So guess which two apps I use most often?
Text difficult to read 1/5
Since the text is NOT in a black font, it is difficult to read. It’s easier just to visit another web site than strain my eyes with a grey colored font.
Frequent Ads & Pictures Not Loading 2/5
By Weu Weuuu
I recently updated to the newest version of this app and have noticed an EXCESSIVE amount of ads popping up. I am simply trying to catch up on the latest news articles and it’s extremely annoying. Also, a lot of photos do not load so there are just blank pictures. Pleaseeee lessen the amount of pop-up ads.
Great App 5/5
Love the app! Keeps me informed
Terrible design 1/5
You can't get thru an article without having the entire website close! I can't get thru reading my daily news stories without having to restart the app at least 5x. I even deleted the original app & then reloaded a new one & the same thing happened...over & over. I'm sick of this!
Too many notifications that aren't news, let alone news worthy of a notification... they've now started sending what are essentially commercials for their new 11pm reformatted newscast as notifications. When in the app there are a lot of ads that pop up. And if you click on most story links you're taken to another page where you have to click again to actually get to the story. With all these things, I don't end up using app much unless I have time to waste or am looking for a specific story.
By Raggedy granny
I watch WXIA every day. Their website is not updated on a regular basis, so I just don't check it out.
I also am not fond of the changes they made with the on air broadcast teams. All the familiar faces are gone with just a few exceptions. I don't like the early morning format - if Chesley and Crash weren't on at that time, I don't think I'd watch it.
My thought 5/5
By Pastor Barrett
Poorly designed 2/5
You click an alert which only takes you to the headline. You then have to click another link to get the story, after of course you are inundated with ads. Obviously the reason for this is to attach cookies and sell more ad space not to tell at story.
11 Alive 4 iPhone 2/5
Very annoying to use. Breaking story pops up on home screen. When you slide to watch, it is interrupted by so many commercials and pop ups that you finally just go back to what you were doing and watch the news later on TV. Come on guys, you can do better.
Poorly designed website. If you click on a story, it will go to that story for a moment then an ad will pop up and when you close the ad, it takes you back to the original page where you have to click again. A waste of time.
Too many interruptions 1/5
It gets old real quick when you're in the middle of an article & pop ups keep interrupting & when you go to close it , the whole app closes. Ridiculous 😡
Great timely news 5/5
They continue to up grade their news app. Timely and great alerts.
A daily user of the 11 Alive App 3/5
By J&K Nutting
I use this app everyday. Very annoying to get ads that pop up when reading one of your updates.
Great Intuitive News App 4/5
Two thumbs up for the 11Alive News App. They continue to make improvements and provide meaningful stories as well as local weather focus. My only suggestion would be to have more timely notifications. I often get notifications on breaking news from other sources LONG BEFORE I will get the notification from 11Alive. Great job overall!
Update: Suggestion to cut back in the ads - seems like too many keystrokes to get to the full story.
Love it 4/5
Great app. No complaints here.
Waste of resources 1/5
Biased, shoddy reporting. 12 alive has been the worst of Atl's news Chanel's for decades
Catchy notifications lead to click hell 1/5
I like 11Alive news and weather. I like your editors catchy notifies. But the multiple clicks to get to the real story are horrendous.
Terrible interface 2/5
As a viewer, I'd love to keep 11Alive as one of my news apps, but I'll be uninstalling. The multiple clicks just to even get to the article is frustrating. A notification click should take you right there but instead there are unnecessary layers.
Hate it, forced pain 1/5
If you want news you must go through click hell. Want to read something it's like are sure, then are you really sure...must click like 3 times to actually get to the article.
News Junkie 4/5
I've never watched 11 Alive news, but I am watching more since I downloaded onto my phone. It's great, and I will continue to watch 👍🏽
11alive rocks! 4/5
11alive is the only station on which I watch news on my TV. With the app I always have news at my fingertips.
Ad Overload... Ugh 2/5
After clicking off multiple ads, I'm not even interested in reading the articles anymore. Also, they're entirely too many grammatical errors in the material! #Unacceptable #NoMoreAds
Love 11 live 5/5
By Pigeye granny
Love knowing what is going on in and around Atlanta,my children are there
Good News, But App Is Frustrating!!! 2/5
By Michelle Gillette
Way too many ads in all the wrong places. I have to click on a link to get to an article to click on a different link to get to the actual article. Also the app freezes up often when I am trying to read a story. Also getting more and more frustrated with the grammar mistakes and incorrect news.
User friendly app 5/5
Icheck in here everyday
Easy to navigate and keep up with local news
Excellent mobile app 5/5
Sends me timely news breaks and I find the site easy to use.
The NeverEnding Advertising Story 1/5
1. If you love Clickbait ads, this apps for you.
2. If you love unlocking your iPhone to do something urgent but can't because you have to keep swiping away notification after notification and then accidentally tap one instead of swiping, inadvertently launching this terrible app that you never use because it's awful, this apps for you.
3. If you love to waste as much time as possible...
The paper towel for smart people
Because it's the Quicker Picker Upper!
....getting to the content that when you finally get there you realize the content wasn't worth the hassle in the place, this apps for you.
News or juvenile click bait? 1/5
Way too many annoying ads and your "news" alerts are pathetic. I signed up for a news app, not a gossip rag.
Rapid updates 5/5
I appreciate the quick updates on news and weather--helps me keep apprised on everything local even when traveling. Great job!
Click here for full story 1/5
Every headline has you "click here" for full story. Then you are redirected to a website to read the news that you opened the app for. Waste of time!!
Keeps me informed 5/5
I actually got the app for the traffic and Crash Clark after the bridge collapse. But have been pleasantly surprised with the quick update on other events or breaking news.
No sound multiple times :( 1/5
By Forsyth Co. Family
I like 11Alive weather. But I'm have to change to watch Fox 5. No one in my tech savvy family can manage to have sound with this app. Our satellite wasn't functioning and I WAS excited to use the app. But...Don't waste your iOS space with this non-functioning app. Don't wait until your emergency phone alert goes off to try to utilize it either.
Not User Friendly 1/5
The 11 Alive News on TV is great, but this app is poorly lacking.
1. It takes a long time to load, about 30 seconds.
2. When you click on a news story to read it there will usually be one or two lines about the story with yet another link to click to get the full story. Why?
3. Ads pop up constantly.
4. Stories that are no longer valid, such as a traffic accident causing delays, are left on the app for several days.
I use the app mostly to get Chesley NcNeil's weather forecast. He's the best.
Frustrating, to say the least. 1/5
By Naptural Curls
The video play is a joke. I have to repeatedly reload the video to see it from beginning to end. It's never taken less than four attempts and almost always requires more. I'm done. I'm deleting this app just as soon as I'm done writing this review.
Ads, ads, ads... 2/5
11 Alive is my favorite news channel in Atlanta, however the app leaves a lot to be desired. The amount of advertisements makes this app more of a pain than it is worth. The only positive thing about it is the notifications about local news.
Love the news hate the app. Doesn't work well
Videos needs work!!! 2/5
I see notifications come along and I go to watch them video. I would say at least 97% of the time the video doesn't have sound. I have to go back out it and do it again. I have very high internet speed and this is the only app I have trouble with on videos. PLEASE FIX so I don't have to start getting my news from another station Channel 5. WSB channel 2. Etc.
11alive is ALWAYS up to date with all the stories. As soon as something happens it comes straight over my phone!! Love it!!!
Too many ads and not enough news!!!! 1/5
By Starbucks you can do better!
This app takes too long to load the stories because of all the ads. You can start reading an article just to have it scroll up or down because of a slow opening ad. Video ads open and start playing without any warning. You receive an alert for the dumbest so called news. The alerts for actual stories give you little or no information. Please clean up your website! Instead of trying to be first, try to be the most accurate news outlet.
Good work strange management decisions. 4/5
By Country Music Lvr
Anchors are some of the best. Some of the new beat reporters are difficult to understand. Do not understand why so many changes were necessary.
Impossible for anyone to follow Brenda Wood. She is the best in the business. Glad you are giving Hullinger a chance. He really does a great job and is not afraid to ad lib occasionally.
Great app...does good job of keeping me informed.
Live video & notifications need improvement 3/5
Very good app. But when you try to watch a live video it just links to their website rather than watching in-app, which doesn't always work correctly. Also, I love the traffic notifications, but there's no way to control what other kinds of things your notified of. The app has many times spoiled sports scores for me.
Great site, when it works 2/5
By Top chef 24
Takes forever to load, then will often crash after I have waited. Please fix this. I have high speed internet. So, it should load fast.
Live stream does not work 1/5
By Biker Buddy
Tried the live stream option on two different iOS devices - both returned errors and would not stream live video content.
Pretty good app 3/5
Just don't like that they give almost no complete info when you 1st tap on a story
Great for any Georgian 5/5
It's a great local news app for metro atl residences that's interested in current events, and especially the weather too
Keeps me informed 5/5
I expected to find this app annoying and glitchy. But I have been pleasantly surprised. This app keeps me well informed about local news. The stories are updated regularly. The notifications are timely but not too frequent. There are enough photos to back up the story but not so much that download time is too long. I'm glad I have this app.
❤💕News When You Need it!! 5/5
When I can't catch the news team on television and I can always catch them on this app! It's great! ❤💕
Informative, but to the point. Honest and trustworthy news reporting. 5/5
I like to be able to get my news fast and clear.
