7 ABC news too much 2/5
Informative without being too wordy. Only problem is deleting information once it’s been viewed. App should have delete button
App closes by itself! 3/5
I’m unable to complete my reading of the news on ABC LA 7 news app. It shuts off by itself. I’ve tried deleting app and reloading it to no avail! Very frustrating
What’s going on today guys 2/5
Usually really good but today it’s freezing on me idk y. Really annoying smh maybe it’s me idk.
I love channel 7 with the people, Dallas etc. but you guys are so liberal to the left, makes me sick. I am middle class trying to survive and all you talk about is homeless, gas tax etc. really? Just retired need to move out of CA . Can’t afford it. Middle class in CA is gong away. Will be poor (that get everything for free) and rich. Love the state ,love being by family but enough is enough.
Attention to detail 1/5
Wrong thumbnails for stories and stories freezing
Scrolling through news is very buggy 1/5
When I tried to scroll through the stories, I’d get the card, but no image above it. Then, it would act like the app froze. I deleted it. Now that the scroll lock is removed, I’m hoping the app runs smoother. Once it does, it gets 4 stars!
ABC7LA app 3/5
By Heisenberg Q
I have an iPad Pro. ABC7LA used to be one of the better apps (if not the best) for news and information (especially live coverage video). Not so much now. Push notification used to take you directly to the video/story. That doesn’t happen anymore. You have to do a lot of searching to find the push notification push story/video. I no longer (rarely) use the ABC7LA app now.

New update BUT STILL HAVE 60 sec ad 🤬🤯 before you get to hear about the breaking news 1/5
By KAsiB Cheer
Been watching for this new update for days , was so excited when it came and in your description box you said we’ve heard all the concerns and we fixed him and then some... no you didn’t!!! Make us sit through a 60+ second ad before getting the breaking news story which you give for concern of the general public... to everyone it looks like you’re more worried about getting your ad money before notifying public. Ever so many different ways to have ad placements that do not conflict with breaking news news conferences which you guys already know because they’re all over your app they pop up nonstop. Sad and disappointing when needing to have a 60 second ad about nothing before we can get to news that can potential he save lives so grossly disappointing
Number in my book 5/5
By Senior Klondiker
The ONLY REPUTABLE local station. No hidden agenda present.
By BG ?
Your app needs some serious work, the first news story repeats itself before playing the following story then when a commercial comes on the next news stories sound dubs over the commercial while it is playing after that once you get through more news stories a weather story with Bree starts to play, what’s up with all the poor programming?
Biased biased biased 1/5
Man can we please get some neutral reporting for once. Stop pushing the anti Trump agenda, I use to like ABC7LA but now it’s just pure garbage. Also as soon as I finish this review I’m deleting the app because the new update it HORRIBLE!! Whoever is over there patting themselves on the back for this disaster of an update should be fired
Hidden Cost! 1/5
While it’s great to get notifications on breaking stories or to see what’s headlining the news topics, it doesn’t come without a hidden cost “Your TIME”. You’re forced to watch commercials! Sometimes the commercials are longer than the news video itself. My Time has value to me and it’s wasted by watching a full commercial before I get the news video that interests me. I don’t recommend this App because you’re only getting snippets of headlining news but you’re held hostage to the commercials that pay for this App. Disney owns KABC and they can certainly afford to provide the latest news information without the hidden cost of wasting your time. Disney is horrendously rich, especially after opening a Star Wars feature at Disneyland and raising ticket prices, I’m sure they can afford a simple App without commercials! They’re just plain greedy and are more interested in money than providing you with the latest news.
Constantly crashes 1/5
This app constantly crashes. I try to read an article and bam! It crashes! Ugh! Also don’t like that every article has video. I just like to read the news. Don’t force me to watch your crappy ads in front of your news clips.
Guaranteed to crash. 1/5
ABC7LA news app crashes just about every time I’m reading an article. 100% guaranteed to crash each time its open.
This is one of the most unstable apps I’ve ever used.
I’m reading and out of no where the app turns off and I’m back at my home screen I have to click the app again and look for the story I was reading. Happens all the time.
This app closes on me every day 1/5
By watching the news
I’d like to know why this app suddenly closes every time I look at it.
Poor update 5/5
By Two stars for word search
Since the last update the app is continually crashing. Advertisements pop up to take up whole screen when they are not clicked on. Unable to read the news due to the frequent crashing!
Channel 7 Web Page 1/5
Very difficult to navigate from story to story and between each one is an ad, come on.
Needs an upgrade 1/5
The app is great , if you only want a few seconds worth of news. The app crashes and it closes out every time I try to use it. Very disappointing considering this is the only news app I have chosen .
Can’t log In !!! 2/5
Been Trying for 3 Days Now!! To enter sweepstakes and every time Trying to Log in showing Errors. Repeated numerous times and same message. SYSTEM DOWN! Sorry for the Delay. If you are trying to gain followers make it easier, So you can have a least have a chance to WIN!! I watch Channel 7 News all the Time, But this APP needs some serious HELP...
Stupid app 2/5
You have to turn off the Closed Caption on every video instead of turning it off within the app itself. The CC is in the way. Also, a 15 second commercial on every video segment. Lame!
Thinking of quitting app 2/5
For the last 2-3 months, while I’m on the site, all of a sudden it kicks me off. It happens every time I’m on. Then when I get back on, it does it again. Maybe you have some suggestions.
Fix update!!! 3/5
By Walking droid
This used to be my favorite app until the recent app update!! Now it constantly shuts down in the middle of reading about the news!! You have to constantly restart it to read more about some of the stories!
Please fix it!!
Cannot get radar or any current information.
Crashes constantly 1/5
I can’t seem to get through a story without the app crashing. The app is open but the screen is black. I started to provide feedback on the app and guess what suddenly happened? Black screen stiles again! It’s happening more frequently now, so I’m using it less and less. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but it’s the same ol’ story
Your news coverage is good except on weekends.
Your app and ABC30 Fresno both shutdown repeatedly cause me to have to open it back up all the time. My wife has the same issues with her iPhone. We don’t have any problems with any other news apps.
Very pathetic. Crash. Crash. Crash 1/5
Crashes every few minutes. iPhone up to date but your app crashes constantly. We are tired of going to the Moon and the International Space Station yet you can’t design an app that won’t crash. Can’t you get a college kid to help you out. After all you have a big flashy name and with the name comes big money.
Crashes too often 1/5
This app is constantly crashing. I can only see the headlines, if I click on a story to view, it shuts down. This has not been addressed in a couple of months. I am deleting it.
I know you need to show advertisement for $$ but you need a skip after 10 seconds and a lot if times it will play adds twice before you can see the news . Also every news clip video We pay shouldn’t have to watch the same add over again very annoying .
To many emails 2/5
I have tried to change my settings to only get certain information. Doesn’t work. I get at least 20 emails from this app a day. Absolutely ridiculous!!
By Papa royalty
This app freezes and so many ads. Sometime you spent 3 mins to play ads before showing clips. KTLA is much better. Deleting this garbage app.
Freezes and crashes a lot.
Shuts down for no reason 1/5
By lwv iPhone
This app keeps shutting down for no reason. You’ll be scrolling through the articles and bam - it shuts down and closes. You’ll be reading an article and bam - it shuts down. Completely useless!
GET A PROOFREADER! 5/5
By Bennie Hogan
I am available to proofread - please hire me. I love this app, but news credibility is in question when so many obvious errors are within the text. Please! Take time to proofread/edit!!
Overall decent app but it’s been automatically booting me out while reading a news story over the last several weeks. Also, conveniently your feedback form never loads so I can send this feedback review directly. I wonder if that is on purpose so no one can ever actually send you feedback. Hope you fix it!
Needs work 3/5
By Rain look out
Keeps crashing and at times keeps on playing once your done watching what you were seeing. Other then that it’s great because I don’t get to watch TV at home. Keeps me up to date on the news.
Would be great if it didn’t crash 1/5
I always update the app, and when I’m in the middle of reading an article the app crashes. It’s been like this for what seems like forever .
Abysmal performance 1/5
Performance has been abysmal. Scrolling is constantly ‘choppy’. Plus, for at least the past few months, the app just QUITS 6 or 8
Stories into scrolling/reading. The app exits to the phone’s home page and that’s that.
Went through this several nights ago and again just now. Going through this AGAIN is what prompted me to write this review...Oh, and when I attempted to leave feedback, the app just buffered for several minutes...never connecting me to that screen. So, there ya’have it.
Constantly kicks me off app 3/5
When ever I scroll down to other news stories the app will suddenly shut down. No other app does this so it’s a ABC7LA issue.
Frustrated that it crashes 2/5
By SoOC viewer
When trying to play video, you watch the same 2 ad videos even and then start to watch and the videos video will either not play or if it does will crash the app half way through. Then you got to watch the ad again and maybe it will play the video.
The app randomly plays video that is unrelated to the news story I am reading
It keeps stopping well I’m seeing it not before but for the last tree months. Don’t like that have to delete it and download another news app. Sorry
Constantly crashes! 1/5
Since the latest “update”, the app only lets you read 4 stories before it crashes down completely or goes black and freezes my phone. This used to be my go to app for all the latest news—now it’s hella frustrating and there’s been no response to any updates or changes. So sad.
Shuts down continually!! 3/5
I do like this app for my local news but I am usually limited on time that I can access.. for the past few months the app constantly shuts down and kicks me out.. it doesn’t matter if I am inside an article or on the front screen. Very upset that i have to go back in and find where I was. Please have this fixed. This does not happen on other apps I use.
Auto play default should be turned off 3/5
By Savy Media Exec
Autoplaying is disruptive. I understand you’re trying to monetize by playing ads but it should not be a default. Default setting should be click to play. It’s intrusive and the user experience is ruined by this for those that don’t realize it’s an option to not auto play. Shame shame shame.
Crashes all the time 1/5
I use to love using this app for current events but since the last update, the app crashes all the time. I’m reading an article and the app closes by itself or black out and crashes. Please fix this issue.
Great app except it keep crashing 3/5
App inadvertently shuts off and I need to start over again by turning on the app.
Crashes all the time on iPhone 7 Plus with iOS 12 1/5
Open it —-read one story
Reopen —then you can use it
Tried using their feedback form but click on FEEDBACK FORM and all you get is a spinning circle —guess they know and don’t want to hear it.
Have deleted and re-Installed.
Have over 60gb memory left
