KOAT APP 2/5
If I could go back to the old app, I would. This one seems too busy. Guess I'll have to live with it. :-/
Too many ads!!!!! 5/5
I can’t even read a story without being bombarded with ads!! This is ridiculous!!!!
Great App 5/5
By Zebedee- father of sons
I like the app a great deal. Know you have to pay the bills but 30 second adds get old if you review more than 1-2 stories. Keep up good work.
Scrolling stinks 2/5
Can’t smoothly scroll. It’s very jerky and always has been...
Not about local news 1/5
Anytime you want to look at anything on the KOAT app you’re overwhelmed with ads. The stories that “look” important are there just to get your attention so you’ll click on an ad or sponsored article. Most of the articles on this app are at most 1 paragraph long, and the “breaking news” is a joke. Immediately after you open the app there are more ads than there is real news. KOAT sold themselves to advertising. They’re just like Facebook, they use your browsing data to create ads. I call this app a “click bait app”; it’s sole purpose is to make money instead of serving the community with honest and important news. KOAT was always my go to for news but they lost me when it became about ads and click bait!
The first news app in Albuquerque the has iPhone X support 5/5
By Rainbo 51
KOAT is ahead of KRQE and KOB. I just wanted a news app that has iPhone X support.
KOAT 7 Newd 5/5
By LC Rocco
Great it’s good it would be better if the whole was on page
Just enough 5/5
If a person wants to hear all the details in the story, then he should watch television. Personally I think it’s just about right giving me what I need to know.
I am update 5/5
Since I have this app I know better about New Mexico. I appreciate your information. Great app!
Blank story listings and crash 2/5
Yeah great update. It’s totally unusable now. Story listings are just a blank white page now and trying to find individual stories results in an immediate crash. I have an iPhone 6 Plus running iOS 11.1.

I get a notice of breaking news or story and then go to app to read story and it’s NEVER there! So annoying!
I’m Glad I can see the new at my leisure. Thanks
Not cool 2/5
Often, a "story" consists of little more than a headline or only video (can't always watch a video). Even worse, the app now pops an ad as soon as it loads, and that ad takes over the entire screen. Not cool.
Don’t download if you want to actually read articles. 1/5
I hate that I can’t actually read many of the stories. When I click on a headline or story it just gives a sentence or two and sometimes a video link. Every now and then I’m able to read the whole story but not most the time. I love watching the news cast but hate this app because I’m not able to read the stories. Maybe your developers can incorporate the actual story into the app.
I used your to see what's going on back home !! Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't!! 😳😥
Late breaking news 3/5
By Micks Nan
I like that I get a breaking news alert, but when I open the app, I can’t find any information about it. Very frustrating!!
Needs some options. 3/5
I hate that when I want to read a certain story, I'll open that page and get a small synopsis of the story, and my only other option is to watch the video. Some people would like to read the news, thus a written story, or at a minimum, a transcript of the video would be appreciated. It's not always convenient or courteous to play a video.
Landscape issue 3/5
This is my first source for news but for quite some time. Even after every update. I can watch 1 video in Landscape and then go back to the upright screen and it kicks me out. I'm running IPhone 7+ IOS 10.3.3
I wish I could use this app as my go to. 3/5
They don't update old stories, they linger forever. They don't update the news as it's happening or as stories continue until sometimes days later. Could use a little more attention. Used to love it but got annoyed always seeing the same old stuff
By Miz Toya
I used to be annoyed that I couldn't get more info on a breaking news story when getting an alert and then subsequent opening the app. Now I am super annoyed that the only way I can get any story is by clicking on a video to hear and see the clip. I just really want to be able to READ a news story!! I can't always afford to have the volume going on my phone when at work or school but I still would like the info. Unfortunately I can't get it and that's super frustrating!!
I don't care for the automatic videos on stories. Most times it more enjoyable to read about it. I normally check the news late night or early morning and I have the sound way down to be considerate of others.
Updated news 4/5
By Get the truth
Like getting quick updates!
KOAT could do better. 3/5
How hard is it to post each news story segment in order from a broadcast? How hard is it to group currently aired videos? What the heck does "Vuz mean? These are the questions I ask as I try to navigate the KOAT app. I really only keep it for the weather and radar. How hard is it find a local New Mexican that can code and craft a good website for a TV station news app? Must be really hard.
Too many videos 3/5
By Susan DLS
There are too many videos. I could watch the story on tv to see the video. I prefer to read the story and most of the time don't have Ben watch the video
Good App 4/5
Good app I enjoy it. I would have given 5 stars but when a news alert is received and you click it, it usually doesn't take you to the story.
Miss the old weather app 1/5
I accidentally deleted the old weather app and tried to find again to re download it just to find this junk one, I want weather ONLY not news about some shooting.
App is a mess 2/5
Too many stories are video only, no write up. Have to suffer through 30 second ads for even the shortest videos. It's rarely updated.
Need to do better 1/5
I got this app to keep up with everything going on. But the news that was at 6:00 doesn't even make the app before the 10:00 news! Also when I click on a story and then try to go back to the main page after having already scrolled down. it wants to start me back at the top? I then have to scroll all the way back down the page to the spot I was at, click on another story, same thing happens. Another thing is you should be able to turn your phone which ever way you want when watching a video! If I feel like watching it one way and decided to flip my phone the video should adjust! Please fix for better review! You just had an update and didn't fix anything!
Breaking News never works 3/5
I will get the breaking news notifications, when I click on it the story is nowhere to be found. It used to only happen sometimes but now it's every time! This morning really frustrated me seeing "Bomb threat at Eisenhower" then I couldn't find the story!!! The Eisenhower story showed up when the next alert about NJ popped up (and I couldn't find the NJ article). Once that broken link is fixed I'll give 5 stars, until then is more frustrating than anything.
By Alb Resident
The KOAT ap is marginal at best. Not enough news and difficult to browse. The breaking news segment is not informative and the news stories are not current. I hear the traffic problems on the radio 10 to 15 minutes prior to the KOAT ap providing notification. I am going to try a different stations ap.
KOAT NEWS 2/5
Every time you want to watch a new story you have to watch the same commercial over and over even if it takes only two or three minutes between one story to the next. It takes a long time to upload a new news story or you need to use the refresh button. The six o'clock news doesn't come on until around ten. KOAT really needs to fix many of their bug problems.
Keeps me in touch 5/5
Keeps me in touch with what's going on in NM while I am away
App is totally locked up on my phone. Can't delete, can't open nothing!!!! It's driving me crazy.
Go to News KOAT 5/5
Perfect station for up to date news and information. Love Angela and Byron the best!!! Always upbeat and having fun at reporting the news!!!
This app is great ☺️ 5/5
By Tristen James
I would have never known about the news that I do if not for this app 😱😛
Mostly great! 5/5
Love to hear news stories as soon as they happen and then they are updated if there have been more answers or results if the incident happened prior to today. Once in a while, the link doesn't work but that's not very often.
Not Good 1/5
Get notifications and when you open the Ap it's not there.
Great resource 5/5
The KOAT app is a great resource for breaking news items. The app keeps you informed through out the day
Awesome app 5/5
By Samba the grouch
Love this news app,keeps me informed on what's going on
Reliable NM News Source 5/5
After installing several local news apps I settled on just KOATs. Nothing really against the competitors ... This one just seemed easy to live with and gives me all the local news I seem to need.
The ads get in the way of me trying to read the stories. It is very confusing and I wish that the ads would go away.
Love the app--too bad so many commercials but love it otherwise💕💕
KOAT Action 7 News 5/5
KOAT is the only news station I watch.
With Todd and Marissa in the morning I know I'm getting the best there is to offer, I'm getting up to the minute news and weather to be able to plan my day.
And Shelly, Doug and Joe give me the news of the day, so I rest easy know that The entire KOAT family has my back.
To many alerts going off. News is a day old or not updated. And most news stories take you to an outside link/site.
Great app 5/5
I am always getting alerts and what goes on in my city! It's great because it lets me know what is happening around me! I highly recommend this app to anyone to stay in loop with things that happen locally and nation wide!
Very informative 4/5
It's nice to get the news as it happens.
Having lots of problems 5/5
Since the last update I'm unable to watch live can only watch on-demand
Not as good as it used to be a few years ago. Now it's way to many commercials & not the story. Seems repetitive on just the title and not the story. Before you would also see the weather now you just click and it goes to more commercials.
OK, but... 3/5
Slow to update news and too many ads
It's ok.... 1/5
There are too many ads and commercials on this app.. You click on a news story and every time... There's an ad. It's unfortunate.
