Videos are great! 5/5
There are not many news organizations that put out their content for free. VNL does that. I can watch all their daily newscast for free, provided by ads. No subscription needed. Thank you!
Drains battery 1/5
By Reader 45678
This app drains my phoneโs battery at an extremely fast rate! None of my other apps do
Advertisements are no first 1/5
By d. a. kloss
They have changed their Ads. U see them first, can't bypass them . And a considerable number of their stories are incomplete blurbs about something with no real information.
Two thumbs down
News app 4/5
I can't read any news when I get to the home page I press news I can't read anything it's just white.๐
I'm no grammatical brain wizard and I rarely review apps, but in this day and age there's no reason to have so many stories ripe with simple errors. Does anyone proof read anymore? The form and function of the app seem to work fine for me.
The app is fine, but.... 1/5
By Former photo
Please, please have someone with a basic understanding of grammar and word usage edit your online stories. With the cloud of fake-news hovering over the media today it would help if your stories did not have missing words on a regular basis.
Let the janitor proof-read them. You might be surprised.
Very poor spelling and Grammer 1/5
How can a news station expect to be taken seriously if they continue to have blatant misspellings and incorrect Grammer?! It's embarrassing!!
Ads have killed this 1/5
I can't even open the Local News or Headlines sections anymore due to pop up ads. I tap the section I want to open, and it takes me to a loop of ads I can't escape. Lame...
By Livid Gimp
If they can't figure out how to run a spellcheck I don't believe They will be able to fix this app.
Proofread, Proofread, Proofread... 4/5
By Constitutional patriot
Fix the misspellings and grammatical errors; some articles look like a kid typed them up off their smartphone. Great app but it needs to look a bit more professional at times.
Contains ads. 1/5
Description doesn't warn about this but there is an ad banner across the bottom of the app. If you happen to mistakenly brush past it while trying to scroll the page, it throws you out of the app and over to safari.
Live feed jams 2/5
App is par with most of them out there but only reason I have it is for the live local new and I'm not getting it because the feed keeps freezing 30 seconds into it
Worst app I have ever encountered 1/5
Links don't work, can't follow alerts because the links don't even show up!! The world is larger than just Fargo and the Bison football team. Can't even find local football scores!!! I really hate this app!
Hate this app 1/5
Too many advertisements, shuts down by its self, and too slow to come up on the phone.
Great app but missing the ability to have more than one location for the weather portion on both phone and iPad app. Please fix in next update.
Great app! 5/5
This is one of the absolute best tv news app I have had the opportunity to use. The only thing that bugs me a little bit is the closed captioning is kind of a distraction and I tried to look through settings to see if I could turn it off but was not able to figure out how (if it's even possible).
Force Closes All the Time!!! 1/5
This app is horrible. Force closes all the time, and sports updates are days old of happening. KVRR and WDAY have a lot better apps.
Apple TV 4 app 2/5
By Bryce 2013
Need an Apple TV app to watch the news live. There is an app for Roku why not Apple TV?
Needs a tune up 4/5
By Running Chicken
Nice app.,however, if an alert is issued the corresponding article is not available. Should have article online before the alert
Can't even open it. Shouldn't be surprised, it is valley news live quality
Reporters can't spell or use basic grammar 1/5
KVLY reporters are clearly illiterate; they can't spell (flys was used in a headline about an airshow, for example). Basic grammar is beyond them: were, we're, where; there, their, they're, etc. Punctuation. And their live broadcasters use the word "impact" so often that people would literally die if it were a drinking game (aside from using it as a verb, yes, I know I'm old school). They're plain stupid (not plane), and lazy.
Doesn't work 1/5
Screen is blank when I open it
Only works about 2/3 of the time. When it does work I really like having local news a fingertip away.
Valley news live 5/5
Best news channel I've watched
Proofreading please! 3/5
Although I'm pleased to be able to view my hometown news on a handy app, I'm greatly disappointed in the lack of proofreading that goes into these articles. On too many occasions, I've noticed errors in spelling, grammar, and even content that a simple review would have likely eliminated. With just a little more attention to these details, reading the news could be so much more clear and pleasurable for its viewers as well as to keep the integrity of the VNL brand intact.
Great having local news when I am ready to see it. Occasionally it randomly will just shut off which is annoying. Otherwise easy to navigate.
Too much Bison 4/5
By $10 poorer for naught
Decent ap for news and weather, but I'm not thrilled with the sports coverage. There are UND fans in your market.
Always Crashes 2/5
The app crashes every time I try to open a story. It would be really handy if I could actually use it.
Great new app! 5/5
Love the new app. Best news in the valley!
Won't load 1/5
By Brynn moen
App no longer works. It will not load content. If you could smell this app, it would smell like ๐ฉ.
Doesn't work 1/5
This news app has no content. Do not download.
Hasn't loaded any news for over a week! When are you gonna fix the app?
No content showing up. Just switched to iPhone 6.
Does not work 1/5
Read all the responses below... I think you get the idea!
Use to work before device upgrade! 1/5
By Tom Samuelson
App worked great on my Iphone 5, I upgraded to 6 plus and the app will not load data. Same thing when I upgraded to Pad Air2. All 4 devices have iOS 8.1.1.
๐๐๐Very Poor app! 1/5
By Local Patient
This app has not worked for a couple of weeks. The news doesn't load and it's disappointing it has not been fixed. What's the plan? I miss the breaking news and reading the news especially when I'm out of town.
Doesn't load anymore 1/5
Used to work great, but now stopped loading any stories... Very frustrated
I used to be pleased 1/5
By It's snowing out there
We even cut back on our newspaper subscription, we could get all our news here... But now it shows no content. Very disappointed.
Used to work.... 1/5
App worked great when it did. Now it has not showed a story for me in the past week. This is the only way I stay informed on the local news. Needs to be fixed ASAP!!!!
Deleting forever- won't load 1/5
Did I miss an announcement that they won't be supporting this app anymore? I use it everyday to get my local news and then poof one day it won't load. I tried deleting and reloading just like others and nothing. In the app world there are many options, sorry VNL-I will find another app to use.
I liked this app until I did an update and now nothing will load!!! Very frustrating.
No network connection 2/5
Pull down to refresh for over a week.....
Nothing loads. Worthless app. Fix your app and your newscasts ๐๐๐๐๐
Rarely if ever works! Not good story all.
Same issue 1/5
I also am having an issue with not loading content. 3 days ago I opened it and it told me "No items found. Check network status and pull down to reload." I checked and my connection is fine. No matter what connection I am on I cannot load content. If valley news love stopped supporting their app at least tell us.
Nothing loads. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Still doesn't work. This on an iPhone 6. Pooooooorrrrrrrr.
Great app, really smooth and works great.
The stories are updated often, but they look like a kid wrote them. There are sooooo many grammar and spelling errors. Do people not edit things anymore? America looks so dumb these days..this is a news app. It should be edited or at least double-checked.
Not worth your time 1/5
If you want up to date video content then do not get this. The video is dated and hard to find. Better to look elsewhere but where I do not (yet) know.
