It was good until now 1/5
By Darrell Shimdt
How many times do I have to write in to tell you to fix your app? I have no choice but to leave a negative rating to get your attention. When you scroll through your pages any slightest touch to any embedded links in articles open another page!!! Annoying as hell to say the least. I get it, it was caused by iOS 13 update. But you should address it and figure it out. I gave you many weeks to release a new version to address this but nothing from you. now I’m deleting your app for good. There are plenty of other news app that have addressed this and have more timely breaking news and a lot less typos. You just lost a long time user.
Old News 1/5
By interrupted away
Why does the news never change? You just keep repeating the same news day after day.
Link clicking is too sensitive in app 1/5
With iOS13, when clicking links in the app, they open too fast, even before lifting your finger off the screen. This seems to be a bug.
Too many hyperlinks 1/5
You folks need to remember that people reading the stories on your app are using their fingers to scroll. So when you embed a hyperlink in just about every word it makes it impossible to read the story cause you’re constantly hitting a hyperlink and getting sent to the new page. Also your video auto-playing is annoying as hell. If you want to do that, at least keep the sound muted for the user to decide to unmute. Many of us don’t keep track of where the volume on our phones is set at and having the videos blaring at us when we just want to scan the story is annoying.
No Search feature 1/5
Looking for a particular news item, there is no search or filter feature for this app version.
The app does not automatically switch from portrait to landscape mode. 1/5
The app is useless if it does not automatically switch from portrait to landscape mode. A use case where this is a problem is when it is use during cardio workout on an exercise machine. With phones having the earphone jack at the bottom, the phone can not sit on the exercise machine in the portrait position so having to pickup the phone everytime a news video is played to switch the video into landscape mode is not practical.
Difficult to use 2/5
I find it hard look things up that have been spoken about on the news
App keeps crashing after updating to ios13 1/5
Articles do not respond to taps.
App constantly crashes. Doesn’t respond to taps.
After IOS 13 update I’m unable to read articles or view videos, app just quits.
Installed ios13 app just crashes🙁
Love the APP 5/5
I love the breaking news and updates throughout the day., I would like to have the weather video updated from the morning to the evening news 8 days a week! Weekend I only see the morning videos.,
Less video, more articles 3/5
I would rather see a headline and read about a story than watch a video which has fewer details on a story.
Breaking News 2/5
Cannot receive Breaking News Only notifications, it sends way too many unnecessary alerts.
Too much control 1/5
If you install app, it will not let use the website. The station promotes voting and articles on the website, but I cannot get there due to the control of the app.
App misbehaving 1/5
By Zipitio y la Ziguanaba
App often shows the same picture on many different stories/articles and unrelated audio is being heard while browsing for articles.
Worst update ever! 1/5
By Wishing ABC fixes app soon!
Update: please fix!
Update: Not fixed yet. App still crashes and feedback form still won’t load!
Why isn’t someone fixing this app? Maybe because when one clicks feedback form it never opens. Used to use app daily. Hope app is fixed soon. Please train those responsible for this failure, to prevent future failures.
Please allow searches 3/5
While I appreciate the app, I always have to abandon it to access ABC7news via my iPad’s browser when I want to search. I usually want to search and share something I saw on TV.
Be nice to be told ho. To reset the four and five star rating 4/5
By Paul Graham63Countries
Be nice to have instructions on how to
Erase the five star rating which provides
A inaccurate voicemail etc!
The app crashes over and over, come on ABC and fix this app to be fast, work consistently well and be stable! ABC is my favorite in the Bay Area but you’re poor app is making me move to KTVU.
App keeps dropping! 2/5
By Dropped Reader
ABC7 News app in general is fine but out of the blue it will drop. Very frustrating!
Use to be a great app 2/5
By Find and Seek
I use to really like this app. Ever since they updated it I can’t stand it. I do t like how I click on a story and you get the verbiage starting. Before if I wanted the voices I could click on it and have it. Secondly, the app shuts down on me as I’m reading the stories. It will stay open from about a minute or so and then shuts down in the middle of me reading it. Go back the way it was.
I love that the app keeps me up to date with breaking news. Although, it plays the ads at the same time as it plays the news segment and the app crashes all the time on me. It’s been like that for months now. Please fix!
Not happy 1/5
Lately the app has started to shut down in the middle of reading news story. Have to continually reopen app several times to finish one story. Have tried updating app again with no change. Previous version worked much better. FIX THIS please.
Great app, except for... 3/5
By Bira Boo
I like this news app except for the loading of another unrelated video after you have watched a video within an article. And then you have to tap the ‘X’ multiple times before the next video stops loading. I wish there was an option in settings where you can inhibit this feature from happening. I always hesitate to watch a video because of this annoying feature. Also, the articles could include more information. They are too brief.
Needs a fix 1/5
Same problem as most of the recent reviewers: the app “drops out” after a little while, I see it still running in the background so it’s a weird crash, and attempts at sending feedback are thwarted by the form refusing to load, so I’m here to pile on the bad reviews hoping the development team will pay attention. The app was fine except now it’s getting ridiculous to use. Hoping for a fix soon.
App drops news regularly.
By RT reads
To whom it may be concerned. Your app is not working with my iPhone. When I pick a story and I start to read the story it falls and it goes blank. Can you please fix the problem it’s becoming very irritating to read your stories.
Sincerely, René Tosch
nice app but crushes every times 4/5
Really like the app for news update, but don’t know why it crushes like 4 times a day.
Constantly crashes 1/5
I would love to be able to read the local news on my phone, but this app just keeps crashing. Cannot finish one story without restarting 10 times
ABC channel 7 news Bay Area is turning into crap 1/5
Along with ESPN and Disney
Miss managed with so many liberal media driven channels...
App still crashing 1/5
By My Town Player
App is still crashing rated one star because it won’t let me post without one
Bombarded by Notifications 1/5
The amount of notifications I get for one news story are out of control. There is no need to send me a notification for EVERY. SINGLE. LITTLE. UPDATE. I got no less than 20 notifications yesterday for one story. It’s ridiculous. And the constant notifications asking me to vote on things that hold no weight. Worst app ever.
News review 1/5
1. The app frequently drops the chosen site.
2. Notifications cannot be accessed or even found.
3. Local traffic is difficult or impossible to access.
The older app was much better.
Constant Interruptions 1/5
This app is constantly dropping out. While reading stories the app just closes. The app isn’t crashing completely, it just close the screen. The app is still running in the background and I have to go back to it, scroll down through all the stories again, find the one I want, scroll down to where I was in the story, read a couple more paragraphs and then it closes again!!! VERY FRUSTRATING!!!!
Keeps closing! 2/5
Like many of the other recent reviews, I like the local stories but this app constantly closes when you’re in reading something. Very frustrating.
The app closes its self while you are reading the new stories. Also the contact part, to tell abc about this problem will not load
Constantly crashes 1/5
The current version of the app constantly crashes. It also loads slowly, putting the wrong pictures to articles (it eventually gets them right as pictures download). This has never been a problem with previous versions of the app, and it is not due to a slow network as it does this on WiFi. In fact it can’t even load the Feedback form to let the developers know, this I’m resorting to writing this review.
I cannot find a quick way to provide input or feedback on any news story, nor can I quickly access/find the way to vote when it is requested. In Settings there is a “Feedback” option, but when clicked I just get the unending circle. For example, at the end of many News stories I want to ask, “But why?”. Also, at the end of the announcement of the new Bart Director I wanted to give feedback by suggesting that BART seek the input of rapid transit experts from Singapore & London. Help? Thanks.
App Shuts Down 1/5
This app shuts down on the screen After a few minutes of reading articles or watching videos, but remains running in the background.
The app dies every few minutes, why???? 1/5
Otherwise it is good if you can read or listen long enough to get the full story. Please fix it....
ABC7 App - crashes constantly 1/5
I am never able to review content on this app without numerous crashes. It consistently shuts off while reading content. This is not a network issue as it happens everywhere I go. I’m about to just delete it. Very frustrating.
Worst app EVER 1/5
I’ve never seen an app that crashes every time you open it. Why does this even exist? I cannot get through a single story without it crashing. I reopen it and it crashes again. So WHAT’S THE POINT OF THIS APP?
It’s ok 2/5
I like the News they deliver but it is very frustrating when your in the middle of reading a story and the app just closes out on you. Seems to be getting more frequent. Hope they fix the issue.
We should have the option to scroll to get through the news faster.
Please disable auto video play on each news feed 1/5
Recent update to the ABC News that allowed the video to auto play by default when open each news feed is very annoying feature.
There are often time that we just want to read the news quietly that don’t want to disturb others nearby, like at work or at night at home. Please please disable it by default.
Keeps crashing 2/5
Ever since they updated the look and configuration, every time I open this app it crashes within two minutes.
Far far too many ads on your web page and not enough content 1/5
By danny noise
Maybe I’ll go elsewhere if it doesn’t improve.
Lots of fish in the sea
Great app 5/5
By Robert nine
If you want to know the news in the Bay Area this is the only app to have.
