KARE 11 app for iPhone 5/5
I have used this app since it was installed on my iPhone and love getting notifications and news updates as they occur, especially the weather report and warnings.
Thanks again for your service!
Everybody needs local news 5/5
I like to know what’s going on in my city, and a news agency Like KARE11 gives me the local information I need.
If you want to know what sort of local events, or even what sort of weather to expect, I believe it is best to hear about it from a place that is truly familiar with the area. I’ve found KARE11 to be the best local agency for delivering that sort of news.
Checking the KARE11 APP is one of the first things I do when I plan for the day ahead.
Worst news app in the metro 2/5
They need to hire a new web development engineer. It used to be good app until the latest upgrade. @kare11- don’t be pretty, we just want the news.
The new update is horrible! 1/5
By Anonymous Nate 12345
The updated version of the app that recently came out is horrible. The layout is poorly designed and hard to navigate. The old version was so much smoother. I’m not opposed to change, and welcome it, but there has to be something better than this latest update. It’s crap.
App Freezes 1/5
App freezes constantly. You should fix it.
By b boy nnn
The long advertisements make me want to cancel this app
Live button 4/5
My live button never appears so I don’t get all the news just what is posted.
By Forget you!
Only station we watch.
By ikes fan
This is fine but the old format had better weather info
Best news ever 5/5
By Hershey Sue
Have been watching forever, love this station!
Not a fan 2/5
App could skip the good morning and good afternoon before allowing news page. Would rather just get straight to the news as fox 9 does. App shuts down frequently when clicking on the news story.
Can't download the app 1/5
By Sandi 777
I always viewed the Kare 11 app for my daily news but since the upgrade I am not able to download it because it says it is not compatible with my I-pad. I have an Apple I-pad that is about 5 years old but can get any other news station or app. What's with that? Very disappointed 🙁.
New version is TERRIBLE!!!!!! 1/5
Old app was WAY BETTER!!!! Weather part is very frustrating!!!
New app is horrible 1/5
By What's wrong now?
Looking at recent reviews, others share my opinion. I’ve been a fan of your app over other local news apps, but this has become a waste of my time. This app is completely disconnected. One example, try searching on ‘vikings’ and you get zero results. Do you not cover the local NFL team? I’m switching to another local news station.
Weather part needs work 2/5
By everyone I talk too
The old app was better, this new weather app feature needs work.
Layout feels like stumbling through the App 1/5
Feel like info presented randomly.
Go up or down? To the right?
Back left then down?
5 bullets means five items? Nope.
Cmon. Keep it simple.
Re released the App and not backward compatible to my Gen 3 iPad.
Had to delete App off iPad altogether.
By Chainsaw Papa
I don’t like the fact that when you look at let’s say the 4th or 5th article and try to back it always jumps back to the first article and then you have to scroll down to where you left off. Seems a picky complaint but when you only have a few minutes to look at local news, national news, sports and weather it’s a waste of valuable time.
New app is a total disappointment 1/5
I do not like this at all. I tried giving it some time to adjust but still find it useless. It does not look good on an iPad and it has deemed my phone too old to even get the app! I do NOT need my news app to tell me Good Morning, etc. Strangely, it is difficult to actually find news or weather. I’m switching to a different app for local news.
Please take away the intro greetings 4/5
By Buck Rob
I like the app but the intro “Good ...” takes up to 10 seconds. Way too long so I don’t open it as much anymore
Worst app 1/5
The new app has a horrible UI and UX!
New update 1/5
Hate it all the same stories over and over again can we get the old app back please.
Unable to update 1/5
By Voice-over Guy
I cannot even get past the spot where you click for the update. I have tried at least 30 times, and all I get is a page asking me to enter the website name. But It won't let me enter any information. I will probably permanently delete the KARE-11 app.
“Improved”’app is horrible! 2/5
By Dana lawyer
I’ve used the KARE 11 app for years now. It’s always worked fairly well and is a great place to get news and keep up to date. The redesign makes it almost impossible to share stories on Facebook, or other social media, and more than half the time the story I click on to share ends up posting as a completely different story. Tonight I was trying to post the mass shooting story with some commentary, and my commentary ended up attached to a story about moving to the right lane when driving. The commentary about yet another dead kid looked absolutely moronic attached to that post. The improvements are a bust in my opinion and I’ve ended up sharing from the Wcco app when I need to share stories on social media
Not a fan of the new version whatsoever! 1/5
Old version was quite a bit more user friendly, if you ask me.if you had an alert, it was right at the top of the page, while the newer version forces you to dig around too much.
Used the previous version multiple times a day, but now, not at all.
I never leave reviews, but.... 1/5
I am so disappointed by this new “upgraded” version of the KARE11 news app. I really enjoyed the old app and used it every day, but I might need to look elsewhere now. The format looks beautiful, but it is not user friendly anymore. I cannot watch a news story without watching an ad. On the previous iteration you only had to view an ad once and then you could watch multiple current news segments. Now after each story you have an ad in between and then you are launched into an item that is days to weeks old!
New APP issues 1/5
By western exurbs gal
Ok I love reading KARE 11 everyday. But this new app performs poorly. Gets stuck loading, can’t scroll once you enter the story maybe because video is slow loading. Lots of crashes. Please fix!
Slow, awkward 1/5
Bring back the old app.. can’t find things, waiting while 15-sec ads play, slow... I’m done with it.
Too Much 1/5
By King El Daddio
There just seems to be too much information crammed into the app. Not at all intuitive in terms of finding any specific item. Frankly, each time I have tried to use it I find myself wandering around hoping to find what I am looking for.
New Update is horrible! 1/5
I feel the new update is horrible. Too hard to find information like previous versions.
Step backwards..again 1/5
Once again, the apps new design has decreased ease of use and function. Hard to find news stories. Difficult to navigate. Slow, unresponsive at times. Would rate this up with the Target remodel as top business decision failures of the year!
New app 1/5
I do not care for this new app. It is slow and it doesn't have the current weather status.
Upgrade: not a fan 1/5
After using the upgraded Kare11 app, I downloaded another station’s product. The two features I use most regularly - weather radar and real-time traffic conditions - are buried instead of easily accessible from the main screen. Once located, I found them so bloated with ads that they were unusable.
Go back! 1/5
Please go back to the old app! I am tempted to delete all together. The interface is not user friendly and there are entirely too many images. The old version was great!
Hard to navigate “update” 1/5
Prior to the most recent update, I watched the live news regularly on my iPad. Since the update, I’ve found the app incredibly hard to navigate and very slow to load. Seems the update focused more on being pretty than on ease of use.
By deleting app from phone
Hate the new app—not user friendly at all-especially to check the weather.
Can't download new app 1/5
I have a older iPad and it will not download the new app. But now I no longer have the old app. Kare 11 was my go to app for news. You lost me! Now I will have to find another news station. Too bad!! Please help!!
Modern update is a mess 1/5
This app used to be great but now its glitchy and hard to find stories
So full of ads
Abandoned older users 1/5
No longer compatible with my iPad, so deleted and will seek a different source of local news.
Hard to find 1/5
I used this app frequently for my local news. The updated design has proved frustrating for me. I find it difficult to find any story after the couple that are presented in list format at the top. The useful categories are now seemingly nonexistent and whatever exists after the list is commingled with a ton of click bait. Unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be using the app anymore for my local news
Slow, returns to top of page, video plays with no sound. 1/5
Bad upgrade. The whole thing is slow. Scrolling through pages with full images, instead of small ones is time consuming. After scrolling down a page for a while p, choosing a article, and then wanting to return...it brings me to the top of the page I just scrolled way down in! Terrible. Return me to where I was just at! Videos for weather never play sound by default, they run but without sound. To get sound I have to tap the video, but then it rewinds for a few seconds, then plays sound with SUBTITLES. I don’t want subtitles, didn’t ask for them, don’t see a way to turn them off, and they cover some of the screen I want to see. BAD UPGRADE!
Another great app trashed 1/5
This was a great easy to use app the new redesign is awful. It’s not intuitive and very difficult to find stories.
New version not compatible 1/5
This newer version is not compatible with my iPad, so I will be seeking a different news app and completely deleting Kare11.
Stepping Backward 1/5
It’s always amazing how organizations can take something that is working really well and mess it up in the name of “progress” or “keeping up” or “newness”. They took an app that was easy to navigate and had a fantastic weather section and made it a maze with too much extravagant and distracting graphics and video. It was always my go to app for weather radar wherever I was in the world. Now it’s lucky to show you severe weather ten miles away. Very disappointing!
Terrible upgrade 1/5
Can’t even find the news articles between the giant photos and ads. Deleting this. Sad cause I liked the previous version a lot for my local news.
Not a good thing 5/5
This new app is terrible. Slow and hard to view with all the pop ups. KSTP is miles ahead please improve it. I enjoy your news so much
July 15, 2019 1/5
The weather radar is horrible. I loved using the old version to track snow/rain and it worked well. I just downloaded a different app for radar. I hope you can fix this issue. Also the news presentation is very cluttered.
“Modernized” look of the latest update is a downgrade 2/5
By Midwest Physician
The latest update for the KARE 11 app touts a “modern look and feel”. It actually looks and feels cheaper that the previous version. Much harder to find stories and inefficient for users. What had been a four star app is now a solid two star app.
Poorly Designed 4/5
By Granny Golf Fan
Difficult to navigate, contains old content, very hard to locate current stories, focuses too much on weather. Not at all user friendly. Seems that it was designed for the news staff, and not for their viewers and readers.
Must have been designed by Weekend production crew, in between misspelled or misplaced graphics work.
