Ample Appeal 5/5
By Mr. Remark
Well organized app with plenty of sections which are easy to locate with the up-date information.
Great to have- especially in an emergency 5/5
By Snuggys girl
This app was a life saver when my power went out during Hurricane Irma.
Helpful app 4/5
Just downloaded this app in order to follow our winter home in JAX. The app is easy and seems accurate. Another review commented on poor resolution of the map. However, I found very clear resolution on the map downloaded from the map of evacuation sites. Same map has poor resolution on the "find your evacuation site" choice. If you live in JAX, this appears a helpful app to have.
This app has been a great help in prepping for the storm!
Overall a good local news app 5/5
By Bill Ryder
Good to keep up with the latest local news
Climate Advocate 5/5

Excellent app 5/5
Excellent unbiased coverage.
Garbage news channel.
Try to upload pic cannot.
Great App 5/5
Really easy to navigate to the material you are researching for, the content on the page stays relevant and the stories are updated as the news unfolds.
Always seems to help me out, and keep me updated. Great app!!
Not all local (I was only looking for local news) 2/5
The app, different then the web site itself, does not allow you to select local news only. I am an avid news reader and it is frustrating to look for local news only after reading Reuters and AP to find this app focusing more on other sections of the country rather then just Jacksonville area. Please add the same web feature that allows readers to select Jacksonville (and area) news only.

Really, this is not Richard writing the review. App is good, no issues and gets the job done. So far, so good.
Resurrected ! 5/5
By Smokeys mom
Have depended on his app for hometown news when I am out of the country. The app had a problem recently, but now it is fixed. I tried several other apps from other Jacksonville sources, but now that this one has the bug fixed, I see just how much I really like it. The other apps work, but the layout and content just do not compare to this one. This one is tops for me. Well done!
Channel 4 is the best by far in Jacksonville. This app is fine except for the ads at the end of each news article.
Since the update this app doesn't work on my iPad When I touch the icon the News4Jax screen shows for a second and then closes. This used to be my "go to" app for local news, not anymore.
Bad update 5/5
New update doesn't open!!! Missing all news!
App crashes 1/5
By Jeddy bare
The latest update crashes after installation on 2/15/2017 works same on iPad and iPod. Hope a fix will be available soon.
Great for local news!
When it worked, sad update!
By Swampbilly crew
Every time I open the app since latest update it just crashes or closes.
Bad update 1/5
No longer works, does not open. Latest update is bad.
Updated app now crashing!
App crashes 1/5
Got on this morning to use the app and now when I click it on my iPad mini the app just closes. Can no longer access the app. Tried reinstalling but just does the same.
Very Disappointed!!! 1/5
I downloaded the app several weeks and I was sad to see instead of important local and world issues being reported, CNN Trump and his cabinet bashing stories are being reported over and over. If our President or his cabinet do something horribly wrong, I want to be the first to read about it. But I'm tied of the CNN and New York Times childish ranting about Our President and his cabinet. There are important local and world issues that could be reported!
Keeps me informed of local issues 4/5
Happy with app overall. It works well.
Love this app!! 5/5
I seriously love this app! I just moved here from Harrisburg pa and I got this app to know what's going on around and near me... this app is amazing! Keeps me on a constant update thank you!!
Crash after crash after crash............. 1/5
if you enjoy an app that crashes every time you use it then this is the app for you.
A must 5/5
Great app... I get all the information I need with just a touch.. I am notified when there is something I need to be made aware of. Just a must on any device!
Great app.....great coverage with Matthew!!!
Very good! 5/5
We use this app at school all the time to track local news and weather!
By Cruising 365
I Love the app because it has what I want when I need it.
Old News 1/5
By Go navy
News means current not 6 days old.
How hard is it to update the app daily?
The app is fine, the people who are responsible for providing current news are dragging it down.
Good layout, local topics 4/5
It is an easy to use layout that has news articles listed by order of creation. I would like to see more news articles to read but not too bad selection.
Some suggestions 3/5
I like this app and I use it everyday. I've noticed that there are always typos in the articles, however. This makes it look very unprofessional. For example, in the title of a recent article, it said, "Missing tean found safe." Another suggestion I have is to split local news and the national news; sometimes they get mixed up with one another. I also suggest to that you should label some of the older news articles as "last week" or the date or something similar to that because there is no way to tell how old the articles are on the main page. This app is okay and could be better
Channel 4 4/5
Good news information at my finger tips.
Go to news app!! 5/5
I love news 4 jax. I've been watching channel 4 ever since I was a little kid and am so glad that now I have the same great news right here in my pocket. Great job channel 4!!
Your reporting on politics has consistently been very biased. It's quite obvious how your station supports particular candidates and is clearly against others.
Good reporting shouldn't be so biased!
Love it 5/5
Great app. I don't have tv and the app keeps me up to date on the news.
Worked fine before you updated it 2/5
This is too blocky, and only a few words of the slug line appear with a normal font on an iPad. It's really not a good app, compared to other news apps out there.
Constantly crashing, name change 1/5
So much for live breaking news. The app apparently can't handle traffic as it crashes. Crashes a lot for no apparent reason regardless of whether it is my iPhone or iPad. Regardless of release. And decide on a name. Siri doesn't recognize you as News 4 Jax, but WJXT. That's an embarrassing error on your part. Do y'all even test your app?
Love it 5/5
My app never crashes & it's convenient ! I love it
Hate It 1/5
I can hardly find anything. It loads like crap. The stories relevant to my area are messily placed throughout the app mixed with stories from everywhere else. Before they were nearly placed within separate categories that I could look through if I chose. I'm now looking into other news apps for a better experience. **Would just like to add that the grammatical and spelling errors are a big downside to this app**
Not so good 2/5
Technology is better than what this app gives. Constant restarting of the app is required, double playing audio.
Old version better 2/5
I like the old version a lot better. With the old version I could see how old the news was and the weather, forget it. What is that? I just want the weather. Bring back the old version.
Fine design terrible content 2/5
By Kevin Florida
Removing app because the news director seems to only like stories regarding shootings, stabbings, and any other form of death. Today's top stories, using one word from their actual headline, in sequence: Shot, slaying, murder, weather forecast (nice touch!), Molotov cocktail, hit and run, killed. Who reads this garbage?!?!
Good graphics and timely accurate news. Hard to navigate
Straight up news 5/5
By Puking buzzard
I get more notifications than anyone of the other news channels.Precise news in a nut shell.Cant wait to read more.
App doesn't work 1/5
Most of the time app doesn't work. Says the article is no longer available. About 90% of the time.
