ABC13KTRK App 2/5
By ABC13-New Fan
You guys have been my go to News Source for about 7-years now. Ive has ABC App been install for over 2-years.
In pass year the app has had so many issues, that I have been force to download a competitor source of news.
Here are some of the things wrong with app:
Videos don’t not play most of the time. The ad will play but not the new article/Story.
When video do play, it a sad music and I have to read the story. In that, DONT WASTE YOUR TIME IN MAKING A VIDEO.
I selected NO automatic play. I still get automatic play. I most people like to choose what news story to read or watch.
That’s enough for know.
Have a Great Day!
Search Tool 2/5
After all of these updates, there remains no way to do a search to find a story that I may have received an earlier alert or review a story from the previous day. I know that the app can hold as much data as the web but at least the current stories. I shouldn’t have to navigate the whole app to locate a story!!! Get it together ABC
The best app ever!!! 5/5
I check my phone before i turn on my TV,when news breaks I’m the first to inform my coworkers. Thanks 👁 witness news
App not as easy to use 5/5
By Tge Mule
This app is not as easy to use as old app.
I like the old one better
ABC13KTRK app 2/5
I really don’t like the format. I have to scroll to find the story I want to read instead of being able to just look at them and tap the ones I want to read. Also it is very hard to find the traffic. No search option.
Pop up ads that cannot be closed are reason for one star 1/5
App has begun to pop up with an ad that I have to sit through and cannot close. This choice to advertise like this has ruined the experience of using your app and is now the reason I am deleting it.

He chased cosmetic dream with his wife. Left his church. He also didn’t shelter those in need during hurricane. Why is he being praised now?? I know God is all knowing and only he can answer my questions. Very confused. Happy Easter Texas!!
News when needed... 5/5
I love the breaking news that I receive in my phone. Once received I’m able to click on the headline and read about it. Thanks ABC13 for keeping “US” the community informed!

Enjoy getting the news as it happens
Constantly freezing up and then just disappears! 1/5
I’ve been reading the news on this app for a few years now, actually look forward to it every day but the past several months the app just freezes, can’t scroll, can’t do anything and then all of a sudden it just shuts down. I swipe everything away and reopen the app, scroll back to the article I was reading to continue on. A couple articles later, it happens again and this continues on and on. I’m frustrated as hell and I’ve uninstalled the app, reinstalled but it hasn’t made any difference at all. Someone needs to get this figured out, I’m getting closer every day to uninstalling the app for good! I use this app on my iPad and my cell and have this problem on both of my devices. Please fix this!
COVID-19 old 1/5
By Annoyed and still downloading
I usually really appreciate your coverage of the greater Houston area news.
But Your app recently pushes out a NEW notification about NEW Covid-19 patients. But the notifications brings me to an older article that doesn’t talk about the new case (as advertised), but every single old case I have already read at least two dozen times is listed in that news story. PLEASE start a new article so I don’t have to read through it all EVERY TIME and learn nothing new to me. AND make sure THE NEW INFORMATION is in the news story/video before you push send on those notifications.
Missing the Houston area and my granddaughters. 5/5
By Grand momma
I am so thankful ABC13 it helps me to know what’s going on in the Conroe and Woodlands area and Houston of course.
May you ALL stay healthy, God bless you ALL.

Once was good, but now is awful 1/5
The latest update is very bad. Sub categories based on areas, scrolling horizontally for stories, layout is headache inducing, and the overall usability of app is mediocre at best. I can only gather that they got jr high student who just learned app development to create this. Please KTRK roll back to the previous version.
Great app 5/5
Truly informative! Jesus loves you! Ty try ulpp creepy
13 is like home 5/5
By BJ Bertrand
I have been here 45 years and have always chosen KTRK CHANNEL 13 for all of my local news. Done greats have come and gone across the board there at 13.
Great news crew, super weather team, and wonderful sports reporting.
Good golf, good tennis, or what ever makes you happy
Thank you 13 EYEWITNESS NEWS.💞💞🇨🇱
Thank you for quick coronovirus updates
App needs updating closes and gets stuck a lot 3/5
The app needs to be updated. Content and layout good, but videos shut down and articles get stuck
Where is the search tool!
Can’t read news because of political advertisement 1/5
Every time I load the app, a political advertisement comes up. Does want me to go vote, but for the other person. Renders the app useless.
Morning news 5/5
By timefree shopper
I LOVE the morning crew!!!
U promote junk food, I watch only David Muir the rest need to stop promoting junk food , I miss the old school, some of u like the old timers but the rest news a
R Just money maker and junk, stop promoting junk food, disgusting
By Unkl Buddy
This used to be a decent app. Now there isn’t a search function. Shear garbage
Update 2/16/20: buggy af 1/5
Changed my 5 star to 1 star because I’m tired of seeing Kim Ogg’s video ad pop up repeatedly. I counted 12 times in the middle of me reading an article, not viewing a video, just reading an actual article. The ads need to be fixed, way too many bugs. And it’s not just my phone, I have a friend who has an android and she says the same thing about the ads popping up in the middle of reading an article. I’m about to delete this app because of it.
Love this Houston news app! Very informative and quick with their stories and updates. I use this as my sole news source.
Awful ad pop ups that hinder your ability to use the app
Won’t work any longer when on cell only 1/5
Won’t work when on cell only have switched to other local news.
Love it and hate it 2/5
I love abc 13 news but I hate the app. It always crashes or freeze up. Even after restarting the app or even the phone it does the same thing. I’ve uninstalled it and reinstalled it several times the same thing happens. I’ve had to download th fox 26 app and I don’t even care for it. Without having that issue it would be great!
Poor layout and font of stories too small 1/5
By Like butta
Not that great. Limited stories
Needs a complete redo 1/5
By Red eye II
Needs a complete redo. Where’s the traffic icon. Etc.....
Great way to keep updated 4/5
I just recently added the app to my phone and had the notifications turned on. I really like seeing the news that is happening right now and not having to wait for the news on TV or keep watching online. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because I can’t seem to search for older news stories. If there is a search function, maybe make it more clear in the future updates.
Keeps crashing 1/5
I open the app and it takes forever for the ads to play. Once they do play it crashes or the sound never comes on until it crashes. This app is horrible.
I’m a fan of ABC13KTRK but Every time I get on to read the news, the app will automatically close while in the middle of reading. This has been happening numerous times for the past year. This is ridiculous, very disappointed and seems pointless to even download. Time to look for a different news station/app to keep me up to date.
Crashes quite often 2/5
By BStreett 975
Generally disappointing. The app crashes on my new iPad and my recent iPhone. Usually just switch over to the KHOU app...no problems on that one
I like the old app 1/5
This new app is very difficult to navigate. I like the old app much,much,much better. If it ain’t broke,don’t fix it. The old app was great. I used the old app many times daily, this new app I very seldom use. I would put zero star if I could.
It Disappears 2/5
While reading the app closes for no apparent reason. It may happen several times in a row then you finally give up and look at a different news app. I reported this problem several months ago. The problem got slightly better for a while but is worse than ever now.
Too many click bait ads 3/5
Basic news is welcome but the constant click intrusions opening unwanted ads and unrelated connections to other subjects is disruptive and annoying. Be reasonable! The inclusion of unreasonable click bait ads is far too great. It distracts from getting basic news.
Great app love it 😍
By G M S
I don’t like the drop-down banner on. Every. Single. Story. If I want to see the video, I’ll watch it. If not, don’t force me to exit out of that stupid banner. Every. Single. Time.
I prefer non-biased reporting, like most of Fox News.
Less stories about who got shot, stabbed, whatever.
I only check for weather-related stories on this app.
ABC 13 Houston 5/5
By Barbara 1949
I lived in Houston 66yrs until retirement. Sold home and moved to Euless Tx. ABC 13 Houston is the best station in State of Texas. Thank goodness for the app.
13 app 4/5
At times, on occasion, it freezes & shuts off. Overall informative.
