Not bad but... 3/5
I feel the app has become a bit chaotic and there seems to be little organization to it. It feels too busy and hard to find certain stories. It would also be nice if I could find news specific to certain areas around town. Also I really miss the “Weird News” section. My kids used to gather around once a week, just to read and hear about the weird news in the world. I really wish that would come back.
Home away from home 5/5
As a native Houstonian, I moved to Georgia a few years back to marry my wife and start a new life. I got the KHOU app to keep up with things in Houston since it will always be a home for me. Thanks for having such an insightful application to the heartbeat of such a dynamic city such as my Hometown of Houston!
Why the change? 1/5
Old app much better. Too slow to open. Doesn’t seem as user friendly as the old one.
Real time news 5/5
Very quick to get the news on line 👍
Linda David 5/5
By Flywheel Dolphinworks
The Best In Texas ! Accurate weather and updates on traffic issues, emergencies and of course sports . Always focusing on the positive energy our great city emits , Having said this it’s necessary to alert us of tragic events as well.
Thank you for the hard work from the crew @ channel 11 news !
New App, Not Good 1/5
I get it, there always needs to be up dates, but the new app is not good at all. It’s a news app, stories and headlines need to be clear and simple, with the new app, it’s not. Sorry, not good.
Bring the old App back please!! 2/5
The old app was perfectly fine. I especially appreciated the traffic map. This new one seems like it’s made for kids with the little faces you have to interpret to see what’s going on traffic- wise around Houston. It’s ridiculous. I’m using a whole new app just to get traffic when I used to heavily rely on the old KHOU app. Who said a new app was needed??!
Not accustomed to it yet. . 3/5
Not accustomed to app yet. . Still clumsy & doesn’t seem as user friendly as the old one. I loved the old live weather forecast.
My Source for Important News 5/5
By Minnie Pod
KHOU is my go to source for local, state, national, and international news. When there is bad weather I know I can depend on them to keep us up to date so we can be safe. 11-1 is the news channel I use first before any of the other networks. I am glad they developed the app for my smart phone and tablet so I can get important news wherever I may be.
KHOU 11app 5/5
Love this app.Keeps me up to date on all news!!!
My GO TO STATION 5/5
I have lived here for 18 years and I have been watching Channel 11 sine then. I appreciate the sincerity of the reporting and reporters. The new format is set so that you don’t want to change the channel for FOMO!!
Old Traffic was so much better 1/5
There are no lists of incidents and roadwork on the various roads on the new app. It’s difficult to do anything—all I see is a map with no explanations of anything! I depended on you for my trips to Houston.
Hate the new app. Switching to another local news app. Don’t believe all the fake 5 star reviews. This app is a complete mess.
Your go to Local Houston Newsource! 4/5
Khou tells it how it is.
You don’t need intro page advertisement of yourself 1/5

The only station that HOUSTON needs!
By Lynette 25
Getting used to the new format isn’t quite as easy to navigate.
Great App 5/5
I enjoy the variety of content. Thanks for Standing For Houston
Too few headline items 3/5
The website still needs work. Not enough main headlines to select and often there will be 4 headlines dealing with basically the same subject matter.
The new app is a disappointment. Takes too long to get past the opening graphics.
By Dulce 68
It’s informative and I’ve been watching since I moved here in 2006. I recommend your station to everyone. Thank you for keeping us informed and educated.
Like New Features, But..... 4/5
By Fandom of rhe Oprah
I like the new appearance, and some of the new features. But the old format had the icons laid out that made them easier to see, locate, and navigate.
Love the new app
By Mira bella
The new app is not even useable. Don’t bother. Where exactly is the news on this new version? Can’t find it because I’m having to scroll through ads and other junk. Thanks for ruining one of the best local news apps.
By A101 ump
I love KHOU tv.
Traffic map 3/5
The new app works well enough, but, the previous traffic map was much better. I knew exactly what was happening, where, so I could decide what route to take and when. Now, I have to interpret silly little emoji’s. I never used Waze. I didn’t need it with the previous traffic map. Bring it back, please.
By happy tiger fan
Love new app so awesome!! Easy!! I like the animal section from other app!! I haven’t seen this on the new app
New App Not as User Friendly 3/5
By Anna Marie 11
I love Channel 11 but the app not as user friendly.
Marissa Castillon 5/5

Opal Renee Davis 5/5

D . Harris 1/5
By 1961 had emough
Like it before upgrade will delete app if it does not improve
Need Bug fixes 1/5
The app keeps on getting stuck and then closing. This app needs some bugs fixed for sure.
Saturday/ Sunday 5/5
Why no local news on Saturday Sunday
Useless now.... 1/5
This app is USELESS now, I used to use it all the time. The traffic looks like a ridiculous cartoon and doesn’t show anything, I think it was developed by a kindergartner.
App was slow before but now it’s laid out terribly. I’ll probably delete.
Bring back old app 1/5
Please bring back old app.. this one is a joke.. u have to tap at least three times to view video in full screen.. advertisement more then news.. crashes all the times.. I am so close to move to abc13.
Horrible for iPhone 1/5
By Dale Houston TX
The old app was so, so. I have a frozen screen almost every time I open this app. I’m sure the competition loves this app. Folks will start looking at the Chan 13 app and probably not come back even if this useless app is fixed.
What professional organization in today’s time goes live with an app without first beta testing it with its own team.
Hopefully the News room management is not operating with the same clumsy approach.
Can’t find anything 1/5
This app is the WORST my goodness nothing was wrong with it it was better then ch. 2 or 13, now it is like a game of hide and find objects. You cannot find a story for accidentally hitting click bate I be watching for a revamp or not use it. Your ratings
Not user friendly 1/5
Not crushing on new app at all. Too many adds. Much easier to look around at what you needed with old app. So easy the old way. Not user friendly at all. Lots of stuff not downloading. Please bring back your old app. Way to many adds get in your way. Can’t even find radar. Will start using another app. Don’t fix if not broken.
What were you thinking 1/5
By Frequent User1123
It’s so bad that I have switched to ABC13KTRK almost exclusively. It appears that I am not alone in this judgement. Maybe their bandwidth usage was just too high and this app certainly solved that problem. It is no longer possible to see thumbnails of most stories in order to help separate interests from don’t care.
Not a fan 1/5
Every time I load to watch a breaking news video, I have to watch a 30+ second ad before news is shown. By the time I get to see the video, most of the important information was already said; frustrating
They switched apps and now it’s harder to get to the categories I want. I liked the layout of the old one.
Old app was better. 2/5
This app is poorly organized, hard to find what you’re looking for. When you finish reading an article, you basically start over and have to look through things you’ve already seen to look for something new. Links in articles don’t work.
App keeps reloading, hard to get through an article 1/5
By Joey Cards
Halfway through reading any article/news story, the app reloads and kicks me back to the top of the page. Very annoying.
Terrible app now 1/5
By khou terrible app
Use to like this app and especially the traffic maps. Now it is difficult to navigate and the main app for traffic is terrible.
The Previous App Is Much Better 1/5
By Ghith Alrestom
Please make this new app like the one before. A lot of things are missing from this new app and is just not as much informative.
Terrible update 1/5
The new app is horrible that I uninstalled it. It used to be my go to app for news but not anymore. The new app is cluttered, unorganized and is visually very unappealing. Don’t wasted your time downloading.
Very Disappointing Change 1/5
So far, the new KHOU app is very disappointing. The layout and performance are both very poor. I hope there are many updates on the horizon to fix these issues.
