FCN is the only channel I watch, especially the weather team.
Great source for news
Notification settings 2/5
I have push notifications on for news and weather but I explicitly have them turned off for sports (Jaguars) because I am not a sports fan. It’s super annoying that whenever there is a game my phone is constantly going off with Jaguars score notifications when I’m not subscribed to those. I’d have to turn off notifications completely to not get them but then I won’t get the ones I want for news and weather 😡.
Looking for a weather app?.. It's not here!
Freezes up. 1/5
By mr real.
App freezes up.
Too much emphasis on reporting crime 1/5
By Fear the Hat
At times, I have to wonder if the only news being reported is what is available from the local police blotter. Business news is largely ignored.
An out of towner relying on this app for local news would likely be aghast at the amount of crime taking place in the city.
Crime, crime and automobile accidents, mostly with injuries. Isn’t there ever anything positive to report?
Just ok 3/5
The app is ok, but it frustrates me that I can't share breaking news articles. There is no share sheet available on those pages.
Always crashing! I have updated my phone, even gotten a new phone and I still cannot read a whole news story without the app crashing. Love FCN just need to update app.

Love First Coast News..Love Heather. Thanks for doing more on the Middleburg Clay County area. Actually like all of your news and weather casters. Waiting on news from Keitha..y’all keep up the good work..
I couldn’t participate in the daily word contest because it said that I wasn’t logged in and when I tried to login there was no way of doing so!
Fix this app, it freezes immediately when opening 1/5
By Mike Schreurs
Fix this app, it freezes immediately when opening
Not up to date 1/5
Constantly dropping and closing the app. The state news showed the same news blurbs for a week, along with same advertising on every block, if there were 8 blocks, u saw the same darn thing. Breaking news wasn’t really breaking news, it would still be there hours and days old. Some aren’t worthy of that classification. Then that same bit of news is in local, then in state... jeepers can’t you find anything to fill it’s spot, this a whole bunch of stuff going on out there, but triplicates isn’t needed much less duplicates. Need a better webmaster.
Terrible App 1/5
This app is ridiculous. I can’t ever access the stories due to having to “swipe up” on an ad to access the story. No matter how many times I attempt to “swipe up”, I’m not able to see the news story. What a pain. No thanks. News4jax is the way to go.
Love First Coast News 5/5
Always watch and downloaded on phone
Most reliable News station in Florida
Keep up the great work
Tegna covers regional news best 4/5
Everywhere I’ve lived, from Maine to Florida, tegna does it best.
FCN. APP. 5/5
I like FCN because it keeps me up to the newest news, on the second.
All the best..all the time 5/5
Been a avid follower for years. Keep up the great job.
iPhone X 2/5
By Duval X'er
Some features do not work well on iPhone X. I have an older iPhone and they work fine.
Good station 5/5
Great storm updates 5/5
Up to the minute weather forecasts assisting with many thunderstorms occurring this week.
Was good 2/5
Came for the local news. Leaving due to the one sided political crap.
FCN red 5/5
Good news always informative
First Coast News = THE BEST!! 5/5
By EcoBroker Diane
Being a native Floridian who lived in South Florida, I was accustomed to very good news reports that came out of Miami-based stations.
Fast-forward to today. I now live in a 55+ retirement community in Nocatee and love it. My husband and I exclusively rely upon the First Coast News for an accurate portrayal of the latest happenings in our local area, as well as the rest of the world. Additionally, we have the FCN Radar app and review it several times a day. For example: I was about to take my golf cart to lunch but checked out the weather. Whoops..impending rain. Oh, well. Lunch at home, it is! Thank you, FCN!
Great app 5/5
This a great app that keeps me updated on things happening around the city
Needs work 1/5
I seldom use this app because it does not provide as much useful information like another station's app.
Not everything is breaking news 1/5
The alerts that are sent out from this app are a bit much. I can understand if something is truly breaking news. When you send an alert that a school in S Florida will be going back next week- that’s not breaking news and can wait until the noon news.
When alerts are sent, they should be clear. Sending an alert that several schools are on lockdown but not listing the names of the schools is simply trying to create fear. Please do better!
Great App 4/5
By WEEZY F MITCHELL
Keeps me abreast of what’s going on locally and nationally in a very timely manner.
New app as of 1/2018 1/5
The new app isAWFUL. It contains less news and is poor for scanning the news
Help us keep up from the distance 5/5
We moved at the end of October, thanks to Irma. We still miss our First Coast and you give us the pleasure of keeping us up today in what is going on ‘at home!’
Very good local news coverage 5/5
As life long native Floridian I can’t always catch the news on TV. This is a great alternative for on the go news.
I like local news 4/5
By Pin Seeker
New to this area. I look at this app every morning for the local news. Only drawback is sometimes the stories stick around too long.
Old bylines 1/5
two to three new story's but the rest are two to three days old and way to many ads please update you story's every day and cut down the ads
Unto you can fix I will be using cbs 47/fox 30 for more up todate news
All ads and stupid comedy no news 2/5
The first time I watch this it was a few minutes of a news clip and then the important stuff that you wanted to know set in a few minutes will explain blah blah blah well then there was these jerky women doing stupid comedy on and on and on and so I clicked to the local news and it was commercial and so I clicked back and then there was like a split-second of Tim again like I was just missing it and how could I miss it we're talking 30 secs and then another commercial so I guess you have to sit there and endure this horrible stuff to get the 30 seconds of news each time
America's got talent 1/5
By jax viewers
Why in the world did you interrupt the last minute of the show when they are picking a finalist #%¥[email protected]
Who is the brain trust running the programming?
Local Jax option 4/5
THIS IS a good source of local news and weather . Great app
FCN App is a Cut Above The Rest 5/5
FCN gives timely and reliable news updates and summaries for Jacksonville and the NE Florida area. I very much like the way the news stories are concise and relevant without any biased references. I also enjoy being notified instantly when newsworthy events occur.
Just bad 1/5
By WIFI WHERE ?
Updated every few days, stories stay on for weeks
By Clifton 52
Y'all app is doing a good job about everything y'all share!
Love this app. It keeps me up to date on everything.
Integrity rarely seen. 4/5
Very timely, seemingly accurate. I believe they try to do the right thing
FCN JAX 4/5
I like First Coast News. I don't like ABC News. They are liberals and I don't like liberals.
Great App! 4/5
After using FCN through their website I became frustrated because you couldn't find news easily. After downloading the app many months later I have found this to be one of the best tools yet. I'm always informed of important information and the app is very easy to navigate. Great Job FCN!
While this is very true much of their information is the same tab after tab and others rarely change. I love the notifications and the traffic cam as well. Very well thought out!
Still a great app, many typos from time to time but the biggest complaint I have is repetitive news. Each tab has the same news as the first mostly. You can do better than that!
Live feed 3/5
By Mask Queen
The live news feed does not load.
By Waikoloa Wahine
I like the app. Sometimes, the story I want doesn't appear. But, for the most part, the app works for me.
Enough notifications 1/5
By Da pilot man yolo
I woke up this morning to 30 notifications from FCN. Stop sending notifications in the middle of the night.
I really like the app and how it keeps me up to date on weather and news
I love the app 5/5
It's easy to use and gives me all of the info I need
Much better than last version 4/5
I like the breakout of topics such as traffic, weather, radar, etc. Too many ads for my liking, though.
Nice App 5/5
Since I began using this App I like how I can stay on top of breaking news, and the timely traffic reports. FCN translates the great staff work and reporting into handy information.
