Only have breaking news selected for notifications 1/5
By Liz Socha
Too many breaking news notifications which are not really breaking news.
Used to be good 2/5
The current slide over scrolling system used by this app is utterly inferior to the standard scrolling previously used. Fox news Channel tried this a couple years ago, and abandoned it... For very good reason: It's annoying.
Too many ads... continuously moves reading material up or down to adjust ads.. very annoying
Why no search function? 1/5
If this app has a search feature, I can’t find it. Either there isn’t one or its so poorly designed it’s impossible to find.
What Happened? 2/5
By Big Gamzlerz
The new format has functionality issues. I try to watch videos and it starts and the commercial plays; audio to both while seeing the commercial. This happens way too often.
It’s the app of a ABC affiliate in the #70 marketer, not #2.
Impossible To Find Stories 1/5
By Loyal Viewer One
I’m unable to locate stories that I saw on your newscast today. Very aggravating site!
It used to be the best news app 1/5
Now I cant view it without wifi. 🙄
The commercial app 2/5
If you like commercials, this app is just for you!!!!!! They even play while you’re watching the actual programming. Might as well use you-tube to watch the news at least you can bypass.
App not working with lastest iOS update 2/5
Ever since updating to the most recent iOS update, this app no longer works. Can't open anymore. The splash screen appears and then crashes.
By G's Thoughts
Too many commercials even when I just want to read an article I have to wait through a advertisement for EVERYTHING...deleting this app going to channel 4 where I can still READ a story without being forced to watch an advertisement....😡
No search function 1/5
By Colin Sick
Went through the motions while watching the news tonight. There was a news segment on Coby Bryant and the said watch the interview on the app. So I pick up my iPad.
Except there is no way of finding said article in the app without taking an hour to find it ...you tell me?
Crashes every time you open it. 1/5
So, what’s the point?
No Feedback??? 1/5
Bad app 1/5
Reading a story and an ad loads late you are now at the end of the story. Very amateurish for a high profile company.
News App 5/5
By Rhonda Hatchett
Great News App
Can’t find any way to search for stories I’m looking for 2/5
No search?!?!? Big omission.
App keeps crashing 1/5
Won’t even open anymore. Not sure what’s going on??
Liked it better before 2/5
By OC reader
I enjoyed the app better when all stories had a choice of reading or viewing the news story. Some stories now do directly to viewing which causes me to frantically turn down the volume controls.
I have been kicked out of the weather section of the ABC app a few times. Just got the app yesterday. Otherwise the news is good. Not fond of the ads in between each story.
I love love love 7news 5/5
This is the only news app I have, and you know what it’s the only one that I need!I don’t miss a thing with channel 7
Not very happy with the weather side of the app, wish you bring back the weather app like you had it before!
Where is the weather? 1/5
By ithinkthis is fixed
I agree with the previous comment but am totally unable to find the great current weather maps that used appear for different areas of the region.
Annoying that when you click to read a story it automatically plays a loud video. Deleted
Horrible video playback 1/5
By Motor 64
Videos either won’t start, they freeze or they replay the ad on top on the video your trying to watch. This is after you had already watched their required ad!
Videos vs story 1/5
I don’t like the updated app, as you have deleted a lot of stories and only have videos. I don’t like the videos as much as reading the stories. Please go back to the other way.
Works on iPad, not so much on phone 4/5
By Valentina Craven
I never get any stories on my Notification Center and yes I have it so I get notified. Updating doesn’t help either.
Terrible App 1/5
Impossible to read a story bec ads pop up and auto scroll down pages.
Also, annoying ads play simultaneously with news video. Terrible job on this new update.
And I emailed them and they never responded like they could care less!!!
The video at the beginning of every story is beyond annoying. Even more so when I would like to read a story and it automatically starts a video. It just makes me close the app and read another news app.
No sound 1/5
New web page 1/5
Very poor! Keep scrolling and jumps up and down . Bar design should of left it as it was
Ad plays during news videos (both at the same time) 1/5
By J c123mack
Lately when I am watching the news video I hear an ad in the background.
I know this must be extremely embarrassing for a multibillion-dollar corporation and only takes some IT kid maybe a day to fix this issue.
Please fix this, it's extremely irritating trying to watch a News video and hearing a Dodge ram ad playing in the background at the same time
I reported this beginning of the year and now it's August 9th, 2018 and I'm still experiencing it.
Any chance the CEO has it in his budget to hire some kid out of college who knows about coding and programming, to correct this issue?
It's now January 30, 2019 and this is still continuing. Please fix
Crashes on app 1/5
By Irritable bear
Just now, while looking through the news articles, this app has crashed twice in five minutes. Can you remove the play button from the middle of the article after open the story somebody wants to read. Great app, but constant upkeep is needed to keep it up to performing great if they want 5 stars.
Can’t turn off auto play 1/5
I try and read a story and an ad turns on without the video even being selected
Noisy ads 2/5
I read articles on your site in locations that are quiet. Recently ads have been popping up loudly even though my phone is on silent. Keep it up and I’ll delete the app. If I wanted sound I’d turn it on. I can mute all sound on tv for other’s peace, why not here?
App Automatically Shuts Off 1/5
Keeps shutting off when I try to use it. Before last update it was great.
Drop in quality 3/5
Okay, app. Lot of software glitches. Freezes and log in issues
Too many commercials 3/5
By Mike W. from DHS, CA
The app works great but the 30 second commercials you can’t skip over are frustrating. If you move from clip to clip to get important information that may be lifesaving you must first endure a commercial before the news segment. There are significantly more commercials than ANY news cast.
“The mountain is sliding towards your home, but not before this commercial break!!!”
I have used this app for my local news for a couple years. There is a 50/50 chance that it will play the commercial and news cast at the same time. I can’t believe they can’t fix this bug. It’s been doing this for at least a year.
Time to find a different news source.
Has become very glitchy with all the ads 3/5
Difficult to read an article nowadays.
7 day forecast 2/5
Not sure what happened, but I used to be able to click on the weather section and easily see the 7 day forecast. Somehow it has disappeared. It was the easiest way to plan your week or the next few days at a glance.
Needs a lot of work 1/5
This app has been plagued with issue after issue regarding its design. The biggest issue is when you click on a story and start reading it is also bringing in other content such as tweets or ads. This other content is so slow to load and when it does the whole article shifts and you have to scroll up and down to find where you were reading. The other problem is when clicking on images you have no way to get back so you have to force quit the app. Please fix what is otherwise a useful app.
Weather for high desert 1/5
By Palmdale in AV
Why do you always skip the 5 day forecast for the high desert sometimes! It’s so annoying. I guess if you have too much news by the time you get to the weather we in the AV are ignored. So irritating. Please don’t skip us Dallas! We watch your news network too!
Doesn’t load 1/5
Articles don’t load and crashes
ABC7 News 1/5
By Used to Love ABC7
The app for my iPhone worked much better prior to the last update. Besides the fact that the newsfeed is only updated once a day, seems like it anyway, the scrolling is so slow and sketchy, you don’t want to deal with.
The fix: go to Google news, BBC, New York Times, anywhere but here, to get your news.
Fix your video issues 3/5
By Can I get a Witness!
This app worked better before the updates. Now, the videos usually don’t play, play the wrong audio or may play the wrong video from another story. Fix your app!!
News video 5/5
I use to like this app before all the videos, I’m hearing impaired and need to read about articles, so I’m disappointed , I can no longer do that
Terrible ABC7LA news app 1/5
The apps video ads can and will autoplay EVEN if you have disabled it in setting.
They are bias on what they include in news reports, and will favor certain go fund me links and stories over others.
Various reporting inaccuracies.
App crashes to much 3/5
By Margarita Don
I read the news on you app and it crashes at least twice while I'm on the app. Very disappointing.
I’m annoyed because when I try to watch a video about the news it doesn’t load correctly and the add will play over the video and will play at the same time and it will lock up and I can not pause it or anything and have to close the app and restart just for it to do it again!!!! I will have to find another news app.
