Trump Channel 1/5
Fox has gone sooooo downhill. Nothing but lies and name calling to anyone who isn’t a Trumpster. As many others, I am done with Fox.
No back button! 1/5
The lack of a back button is near infuriating.
No back button! 1/5
After the latest update at the end of January 2020, there is no back button within a new story 🤷🏼♂️🤷🏼♂️
Sound doesn’t always work 2/5
They stream a replay of the 9am news at 10am, but the sound almost never works. The sound will work for all the ads and promotions that are played during the news feed, but the news feed itself has no sound. Wicked annoying since that’s about the only time I can watch the news in the morning.
App needs work 2/5
I stream my app to my tv. It worked fine until about a month ago. Now when I plug it to my tv, whatever is playing gets stuck and it reloads every 3 seconds. I close the app, and the audio works while the app is closed. It the only app I have that does this yet the only news in Boston that streams live without a cable provider. Please continue to work on this app. It needs it.
Has full page Ads 1/5
I'm all set with full page Ads. D-bags
Live streaming 2/5
For the past 2 weeks I am having a problem with the news to play live. The ad plays ok but when it switch to the news an error shows up saying it can’t play the video try again later. How much later? This is ridicules. Please fix this bug.

The app 1/5
This app sometimes works not always working
WHY NO SUPPORT FOR IPHONE X???? 1/5
I don’t understand it. Why the hell hasn’t this stupid app been optimized for iPhone X? It’s literally the last app on my phone of over 75 apps using the old resolution??
Wayyyyyy too many news alerts! 3/5
22 news alerts today is too many. Most of them aren’t important or repetitive.
If you get the app, turn off the alerts!
By Kay31 Sf
This app is just awful. The live video takes a while to play with long ads. Twitter videos attached to the article doesn’t even play, why bother attaching it to the article? I love fox25 news reporting but getting news on this app is a chore. Not to mention the constant misspelling. This app needs a makeover soon or I’m just going to delete it.
The media player is the worst. It cuts in and out is interrupted by random other commercials that you can't see or shut off. The app is basically useless.
Whoever designed this and whoever manages it should be fired.
Ok until you want the forecast 1/5
Homepage is fine with the basic info. Temp, precipitation, etc. But check on the forecast and the entire page is ads. If you skip the video ad, you get the forecast but 75% of the screen is ads.
Weather and the News Stinks! 1/5
By Rev Jude
First of all with the exception of Kevin all the other weather women they have are all useless. All their forecast is so Inaccurate they cannot be trusted. I don’t trust these people whatsoever because I’ve seen them messed it up so many times. As far as the news goes I don’t trust them either because it’s all
fake. I don’t like the liberal views. A liberal could not tell the truth for nothing. All the liberals to lie and that is why I don’t trust them. I prefer the weather Channel over Fox 25. Stephanie Abrams is the best female Meteorologist out there. The rest of these women stink.
Fastest notifications 4/5
By Zini in MA
Best news and weather notifications compared to other local news apps.
Terrible app 1/5
On and off all the time on my iPad- Needs a lot of work a not worth the download
Fox flip flops with Roger's kids in control 1/5
By Dream Home Dreamer
Although I am down to a handful of favorites at Fox in general, I find their news to be as biased as The NY Times and The Washington Post. Occasionally they throw a bone to conservatives but they cannot hide their left leaning opinions in their coverage. Roger's daughter in law is a huge HILLARY supporter (it shows), if I want biased news I have plenty of choices. I watched Fox for years because I felt I was getting most of the truth from their newscasts. I have joined the multitudes who have "flipped the switch" and gone elsewhere. After a long term relationship, we are finished Fox, like a divorce, I have found another. BTW, your treatment of President Trump has been shameless at times. Unprofessional! And I felt they were a little soft on OBAMA but I understood they had to present both sides. Apparently the globalist owners think differently.
Needs work 1/5
Had to delete the app because I was receiving alerts for things I set my settings that I did not want alerts for. Seems there is work to be done still with the app. Also, would receive alerts for news and once you clicked the alert, you would be directed to the wrong article. Please improve your app.
Worst app ever 1/5
Crash it multiple times and full of none stop adds, ended up deleting it.
Crashes immediately 1/5
Won't even load since latest update.
Crashing on iPhone 6s Plus iOS 10.2.1
What happened 2/5
I started off enjoying this app until late...now I will be watching and then it just stops working...because it kicks out, I miss the story or the weather and I end up watching the ads more then the news. Always cuts out during the news...never the ads. Very disappointed now. Get this fixed please.
Why so loud? 3/5
Love the live news broadcasts but the ads are so much louder that my ears are at the point of bleeding. Seriously, turn those ads down.
It was great at first. Now, there are more ads with deafening sound and crashed. Fix it, please!
App was great, now not so much. 3/5
When I first got this App (for my iPad) it was great, because it would open up to the news broadcast - as if you had just turned on the television.
After time, I started to notice more and more Ads appearing prior to opening up to the broadcast already in progress, which is a bit annoying.
Now, I have noticed - in the beginning or in the middle of a news segment an "Error message" appears. I am unable to refresh. So I tap out, the tap (back) into the App - the Ads appear again - no bypass or fast forward. By the time I have done all of this - I have missed the segment or whatever I was trying to watch. This reoccurrence is more than once within 5, 10 or 15 minutes (rounding the time).
This is very frustrating because I love the App and love this news station. Obviously something needs to be done to fix this issue.
Excellent but 4/5
As of this date, December 3 there is a commercial that upsets your fox news continually.it is Osteoarthritis
When it comes on my computer and link to Fox News must be rebuilt.
Very annoying. Please repair.
whats with the ads in the middle of the pages? 1/5
ads are in the middle of the pages....cant read the articles.......great job fox....not!!
You go to read a news story on this app, an ad pops up in the middle of the page..it was not like this before. Please fix this as it is very annoying.
Not maintained 1/5
It's an OK app, but unless you can read the story in 3 seconds before an ad pops up over the text and remains there forever, there are better ways to get Boston news.
Stupid pop up ads block the view of news 1/5
Don't bother downloading unless you love pop up ads that get in front of what you are reading, and continue to block the writing by moving down to cover the page as you scroll down to get away from the pop up.
11 out of 10 on the annoying scale. I'm deleting the app.
Maybe someone will get smart in the advertising/annoy-the-crap-out-of-your-customer department.
Entertainment thumbnail 4/5
Does anyone know why the entertainment thumbnail doesn't work? I love this app but it has never worked since I downloaded it.
It needs a tweekin 3/5
By Trish Alova
I do like the app and all the notifications. My reason for the review is this, I click on a notification and it routes thru safari first before it links to the app itself to open the actual article. Why is this?
Fox25 news Boston 2/5
Freezes a lot
When it doesn't freeze, has a lot of good stuff on it.
You do get alerts , is really good app.
Only problem I have is that you get an alert, you click on it , & the alert tells you to wait. Or , it brings you to other news stories, never ti the alert you received.
Current version keeps crashing... 2/5
Current version keeps crashing every single time I try to access the forecast (detailed description). Can view other things ok it seems, but I really want the forecast for this snow storm today. Not helpful.
Error popping message 1/5
Used to work good! Since downloading the new interface problems started. Why fix something that's not broken.
Error issue pops up 3/5
I enjoy this news channel. I watch it every morning. This app has issues with error messages and won't load the news feed. Good news station but app could use some tweaking.
News app 3/5
It doesn't load up now. I get error messages
Too many alerts 2/5
The app was ok initially, but now they send "alerts" for practically every story. Alerts should be reserved for relevant universally important news, not a car crash in a different state, or an mbta meeting. It becomes a "boy who cried wolf" type of thing when you constantly send them.
Sound not working on live broadcast 1/5
Sound isn't working
Ever since the update the app keeps crashing... When will this be fixed it's very annoying trying to read a story and it crashes when closed and reopened it crashes again.
Crashes when reading news stories 1/5
This was a great app till the update every time I read a news story app shuts down
LIVE button crashes the app on iphone
Does not work 1/5
Update to fox 25 app does not work! Total fail! And Apple makes it hard to leave feedback in the App Store. Also a fail!
By shawn carrie mullaney
To many alerts for the same situation,when you swipe the alert you it brings you everywhere but the alert its self, when u get an update on a story its the same video with a different headline or just changed around, and last but not least the facts of a lot of the stories are false information because they try and be the first to report without confirming the actual facts.....sorry but i like fast truth and consistency.
Terrible, Shamefully done 1/5
Don't bother using. Rarely connects, if ever! Locks and freezes or just plain crashes on start. One would think that a company like FOXNews would do a far better job than this.
Way to many notifications 1/5
The app itself is fine, but you may want to turn off the notifications. They constantly send them about what I think most people would consider non-breaking news or advertising to watch Fox 25.
OS9 Fail! 1/5
Stopped connecting after OS update.
