Constant typos and grammatical errors. 1/5
Stories are poorly written, with many typos and errors, both factual and grammatical. There is no "report a typo" option like most news apps have. Emails pointing out the errors are ignored. Briefly there was a twitter feed pointing out the errors on the ABC30 twitter stream, but instead of fixing the errors, they blocked that feed. ABC30 - we make many mistakes and we don't care!
In the app, there is a form to make suggestions. If you fill the entire form out and submit it, it fails with an error message. The app, like the news reporting, is half assed and poorly done.
Hate the new app!!! 1/5
I can’t rotate my phone and watch the videos in full screen (horizontally).
I also hate that I have to flip through each story like pages of a book. It’s annoying. I used to read the news every night on this app but unless they go back to the thumbnails on the side I’ll never reload this app on my phone. DELETED!!
If it’s not broken don’t fix it 1/5
Miss the old app and the old storm warn app!!!
Great up to date. 5/5
It’s on the news as it happens. Love this app. When I can’t see it on tv.
ABC 30 app 2/5
By Popa Rog
Don’t like it. Previous one was much better.
This new app version on my phone is terrible. For one example, it doesn’t match with the ABC 30 app on my iPad. I’ve refreshed it over and over for the foggy day schedule which continues to show a plan A, when in actuality it is Plan B. However the app shows it’s been updated just minutes ago. I also dislike the navigational process of this app.
Just missing 1 thing. 4/5
By Wakes me!
I enjoy the app a lot. I wish it had a search engine. I’ve also seen that not all things or something n the app that are on the full website.
Besides that I like it a lot & use it frequently.
App never loads 1/5
Whether on LTE or WIFi the app never loads. I could not even use the feedback form in the app.
The Best!! 5/5
This is the best and accurate news around. This news station has been my favorite for 50 years!!
Disappointed in new version 1/5
By K n Cali
Don’t like new version! Top news won’t even open. Says I need internet connection which I have. Bring back the old version!
New updated app 3/5
Not thrilled about the new apps look and functionality. Liked the old one better. Easier to manage.
If it ain't broke.... 1/5
New version is clunky. Used to use it daily. No I just try to avoid it and almost thinking of deleting it.
New layout is terrible 1/5
I liked the old layout. The new layout is terrible. You can only see two stories at a time and have to keep swiping up to find something that interests you. The old layout was much better because you could see many more stories and find something that interests you. Now it’s like I’m being spoon fed...terrible.
New Formatt 1/5
I don’t like the new formatted the ABC30 news. Don’t force me to watch a video. I still prefer to read the article and then possible view the video. But that’s my choice
Least favorite news app 1/5
Having to scroll thru every story is a pain. I prefer to see headlines and a small pic of multiple stories giving me the option of which articles to access. The new app makes me read each article headline scrolling thru all articles before the option to choose to read an article.
ABC30 news app went from one of my favorites to my least favorite and last news app I view to examine news. Not even the local news generates any appeal. I prefer other news apps first. 😳
Do not like new format 1/5
I personally don't like the updated app.
Before the update it wasn't a great app. The news doesn't change for 2-3 days.
The new app is horrible 1/5
I hate that I have to go through every single story. I am going to delete it and start using the Fox 26 app.
Not user friendly. 1/5
The new update is horrible. Hard to navigate and hard to find certain stories. Really miss the old layout.
The new app is not good! 1/5
I’m not sure why it was changed. But the new layout is not user friendly.
Lousy format 1/5
By Country Mike
I hate it and have not been using it. I used to be able to see all the headlines almost on the same screen. Now I have to scroll and scroll and scroll and, quite frankly, the inefficiency blows. Try again ABC 30.
This app is a joke 1/5
Why Why Why WhyWhy WhyWhy Why did you change the best news app ever? The new one is horrible. Agggghhhhhhhhh!!!!
Too much video 1/5
By Sherry bags
ABC30’s new app is a data eating machine. Every article pops up with already running video of said story. If I wanted to watch live TV I’d tune in to a television.
New Look 1/5
By Fix Site Image
Go back to the old version. This new one is horrible I’ve given it a week and I still don’t like. I’m sure I’m not the only one. I will be deleting soon. Thanks
Previous version better 2/5
By Rich Duarte
The previous version was better. I understand upgrading the app but didn’t really need an upgrade like this one. It was better seeing the stories like before not the new updated way. Just my opinion.
Old app 1/5
Don’t like the new set up of this app. Like the older set up!
Not an improvement 2/5
This new app for ABC30 feels much too constricting. The home page only shows the top two stories. I liked the old app better because I was able to see a wider variety of stories on the home page. Can I switch it back to the old one?
Finally I can pick the notifications I want 5/5
I like that I can pick my notification categories in the settings. Layout is cleaner and I like the new explore function. Very neat and organized.
New format 1/5
By Clovis homeowner
I cannot stand the new format after the update. Deleting
I used to be able to go to work and watch and read the news. Now I have to be connected to my WiFi to do this. Why????
Love the new upgrade! 5/5
Great new layout! Love the ability to customize which news stories I see and push alerts I get. 👍👍👍
Don’t like it 1/5
Liked the old app better.
Not a fan of the new format 1/5
The new format shows one story at a time and forces the user to scroll through each story to see what the next one is. It was SO much easier in the old format where the user sees a list of stories and could tap in the one they wanted to see.
Horrible change 1/5
The prior ABC30 app was great. A list of news stories loaded and you could very quickly scoll down the list to read the items that interested you. Now, the screen is filled with a big picture and one story and you have to keep swiping to see the next story. It's really slow and you end up swiping past a bunch of stories
that are of no interest. I checked this app every day but doubt if I will do so now.
Needs new editors 3/5
By CC 142
Im not sure who writes or edits their news articles that they publish, but wow!! Grammar, punctuation and simple spelling are out the window with 90% of their articles. I’m embarrassed FOR them on a daily basis.
Not what I expected 2/5
By TV 55
I wanted the ability to watch regular tv shows. Not available here.
By Sarah Impalin
They can't even spell correctly as many others pointed out. Plus their fascism across social media is disgusting.
Awesome !!!! 5/5
By Valerie G- Fresno Ca
I absolutely love this app and I love ABC30 ... I love how they keep us updated on everything going from breaking news to emergency alerts in the state, city or country. I recommend everybody to get this app it is very helpful and useful.
Great News App 5/5
I love using the Chanel 30 News App I can always count on the latest News and updates. I highly recommend this App.
By Nana and Bubby
ABC 30 would get a better rating from me if it weren't for the glaring liberal bias. I use this ap to get my local news and try to ignore the not so subtle jabs against republicans.
Have to kill the app every time to refresh 1/5
By F'n Norm
The app does not auto refresh on iPhone you have to kill the app to get current conditions every time. I use mostly for weather the old ABC30 app did auto refresh and most importantly in Los Banos it showed the wind speed and predicted wind speed by hour this is very useful in planning outdoor activities or choirs or if wind is really going to pick up you don't want your boat on San Luis reservoir. This is a huge downgrade from the old app!! Can I just get the old app back!! Please put the predicted wind speeds and fix the auto refresh problem
Sick of AD VIDEO 1/5
By Fresno CA
Can I please watch a news video without being forced to watch that stupid "DOERS" app by PG&E? EVERY TIME BEFORE EVERY VIDEO!
ABC 30 3/5
I grew up with "Channel 30" but lately I am concerned About the liberal/Progressive bias.. keep it impartial guys or I will go elsewhere for my news. Thank you.
Love the information it gives... except 1/5
ABC 30 is my absolute favorite news station. I love getting the notifications telling me about what is going on in my community. The only thing is, I use the voice over accessibility feature on the iPhone and when I click the full story button at the end of some articles, my screen goes blank. This makes me have to restart the app and open it back up, then go back to the story and open it again. My only reason for a 1 star is because I would really really appreciate this being fixed!
Great AP 5/5
By Citrus One
I usually hit this AP once a day. Well organized and easy to read and rarely not up to date.
Best Fresno Local News App 5/5
I really like this app and I've been using almost daily for at least a year. It's well thought out and aside from the "fake news" sidebars for advertising the content is relevant and timely. Commercials are not overwhelming in number.
The latest update, for me, has a bug where after I watch a clip, the "done" button disappears. So I have to close the app and start again. After the clip ends I'm stuck with no way to go back to the home page.
It's been many months and still have the issue after watching a clip the done button disappears.
All in all I'm really pleased mostly due to the other local news apps I've tried simply do not work.
Must Get! 5/5
Great News App👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
By Manuel 2012
Love it!!! Love all the people on abc 30. thanks,Manuel
Love ABC30! All the news quickly
Go to App 5/5
By Nic Christine
This is my go to app for any information, they are quick and short with alerts.
Excellent reporting 5/5
Thorough reporting gives me the highlights that I need to know. Several other stations are way behind.
