Too glitchy 2/5
By Emin3m the R3AL Slim Shady
This app used to be pretty good, but almost every single time I try to get on it, it either freezes or won’t let me scroll without being erratic. Wish they would fix the bugs...
This app constantly closes on me when I’m trying to read articles. It happens on more than 1 of my devices so I don’t think it’s a problem on my end!?
App keeps crashing 1/5
App keeps crashing when watching live newscasts.
App uses 135MB of data EVERY TIME IT IS OPENED! 1/5
This is a very poorly designed app. I saw that my data was near the limit this month and was wondering why. After marking when I would open the app along with time stamps from my mobile data, I found it to be a perfect match. Deleting this app after my review.
App Freezes 1/5
App freezes constantly. You should fix it.
Crash and Burn 2/5
By The Art of Noodles
I’ve never experienced an app that has dealt with as many crashes as this one. In addition, the news stories don’t always match up with their links. I’ll clink the link and it plays some a random news story not associated with the title.
Something doesn’t smell right with this app. 1/5
To many coincidences with advertisers to trust this app.
New look, new problems. 1/5
With your new pop up ad I’m not able to actually view your app. When I open the app the pop up states to swipe up to access the article, but that doesn’t work, so there is no way too view. Prior to this the videos would not play, they would just show black screen.
4.5 stars?????? 2/5
I’m truly surprised this has such high rating. Anytime I get a notification and I want to read up on the article it literally does not load. I constantly have to close out of this app and reopen it. And now they have pop up ads in the middle of the screen and what do you know the app freezes and I’m forced to close the app. Lastly the set up makes no sense it’s very hard to navigate and you don’t know if you’re clicking an ad or KARE11 content. Really hoping for some improvements.
Pop up commercials 1/5
There are way too many pop up commercials within the app and it makes it very annoying. Time to switch to a different local news app
Not for long 2/5
By wish hadnt updated
I use this app for news and have for several years. I agree with another reviewer it keeps getting worse with every release. I’m going to finally switch to another app because this one continually crashes as I’m reading a story. Don’t like the scrolling thru large photos to see next stories. Please revert back to previous version. Wish I hadn’t updated!
Performance issues. Open the app and it freezes. Can’t scroll or anything. When the app does work, it’s wonderful. Layout makes topics easy to find, etc.
Hi from Buffalo Lake, MN 5/5
By Steve's best girl
KARE 11 is the only news I watch
Ads ads and more ads 1/5
By Rating App
Interesting that this App scrapes my web browsing from my phone to support its ad campaigns. Even more interesting is that I browse all sites using private browsing? How do they do that? Seems pretty sneaky and invasive. I don’t like it and deleted the app.
Video freezes 3/5
I don’t mind the adds, but every time the add finishes, it freezes the video and I don’t get to see the clip...
The app freezes all the time. I open it and can’t do anything. Can’t you fix a simple problem like that??
This app has continual issues partially loading. Garbage
Crashes and burns 1/5
This used to be my go-to app for local news. I’m gonna have to go with the other station’s app now. Like other reviewers, I have been attempting to read an article and it’ll crash completely. I remember the app being very easy to use before the video preview thing was added, so I was keeping it and trying to use I daily, staying hopeful with every app update that the issues would get resolved. Nope! Bye.
A Buffet of Glitches & Poor Design 1/5
Given that I value Kare 11 as my go-to news source for MN it is beyond words how consistently frustrating this app is.
Basic attempts to read news stories, or watch news segments, are frequently met with full app crashes. The design overhauls on the app seem to favor adding flair, rather than ensuring function. And don't even bother with the weather radar, depending on the version of the app there's a pretty good chance that there will be an ad completely blocking your ability to use the radar controls rendering it useless.
Fix the app! 1/5
Worst app on my phone that I still try to use. Crashes every couple minutes, jumping to the top after a few seconds. Just terrible.
Best news ever 5/5
By Hershey Sue
Have been watching forever, love this station!
Come on 2/5
Each iteration of this app has new problems. It’s just not good from a user experience perspective, or performance. For example, why make me scroll through the articles with giant pictures? And, if you’re going to do that (which my husband actually likes), then at least have the app not randomly jump back to the top of the page while I’m looking at headlines. I watch kare11 as my normal news source but your app blows.
And, some of the ads and clickbait are extremely inappropriate. I know the news isn’t always “family friendly” but you don’t have to this type of advertising in.
Seriously Kare11 same lame story 2! Nights in a row! Guy who “invents” a remote control snowblower! Grr!🤬
By the prussian
I think less politics is the way most people are wanting to hear new !
Loaded with ads 2/5
Good content, but every video starts with a 30 second ad. Not to mention all the other ads on the page. No thanks.
I love real-time updates! 5/5
Great job Kare11! From road conditions, local sporting events, and news briefs I like it all.
Doesn’t work 1/5
Used to love this app now it never works! Nothing ever loads, fix it please!
Don’t like latest updates 1/5
Frustrating to get to the news. Have to scroll through way too many ads.
Too many advertisements and pop ups placed in between story lines.
Not what it once was 1/5
Lots of glitches...very slow since past few updates.
Lost viewer😠 1/5
This app has gone from one of the best to one of the worst. You can’t tell if what comes up is news or advertising. Very difficult to get around in. Way too many ads. To many videos. Not everyone enjoys videos all the time. The morning news has gone down the tubes also. You try so hard to capture the younger audience (that don’t watch tv anyhow) that u will soon not have ur loyal audience. That Chris is obnoxious. Thanks
Good news source lots of typos 3/5
Are use it as a good source of local news and keeping up to date on the headlines. Editing needs a little work.
I’m Out 1/5
Used to love this app. It was my go to for local news. Roll back to prior version without videos and I’ll come back. So sad.
By far worst news app to those local in MN. Far too many adds, delayed videos, videos that don’t work. Don’t install
Too many push notifications 1/5
By Dillon Lyon
I have selected no on I think every push notifications and my phone is still pinging me 3-5 times a day. If this does not become more user friendly my wife and I will be removing the ap. Love KARE 11 but stop the push notifications or let us truly opt out of them.
Was good 3/5
By The fact is it's
Since recent update, seems glitchey. Stores take a while to load and app is just generally slower. Maybe cuz of video previews?
App is great but constantly freezes
Swipe right gone 1/5
By Too many to choose
Used to love this app. Not so much anymore. I really liked when you could “swipe-right” and get to the next story. Wish you would bring that back and I will give you a 5 star.
Update Sports 4/5
I live in Az. Have the Jare app as well used live in Mpls. I find the sports a bit lacking in that no Lady Gopher scores.. sports extra is dated 10/23. So I give a score of B.. B+.
Nice app. 5/5
I love this app. It crashes a lot unfortunately and I have to reload but I check this app multiple times a day.
Latest Update 2/5
Do not like the latest update which completely changes the way news stories are viewed. Somewhat confusing. Preferred scrolling right to left or vice versa. Will probably use another news app with the view I am accustomed to.
Too many notifications that are not news are necessary. I had to turn off all notifications. I had sports notifications turned off and still received sports alerts. I love KARE11 but not this app. I may remove it. 😕
Absolute trash 1/5
Until they fix the notifications in this app, it is absolutely worthless. Doesn’t matter which notifications you sign up for, you will get notifications for anything and everything. Ever since TEGNA media took over KARE 11 here locally, their applications and website formats are absolute garbage. Everything is click bait titles, it’s so annoying. Quickly losing faith in KARE11 as a whole because of these format and worthless news titles.
Missing links 1/5
A lot of stories refer to videos or photos with no links to the actual video or photo. It’s happened repeatedly over the past few years.
Could be better 2/5
Sure they show more news items. I counted ten ads. While I am reading it scrolls up so I have to look for the story I wanted.
Now 1 Star 1/5
Dropped it to a ONE with so many USA Today hit pieces against conservatives.
If I want to read USA Today I will go to USATODAY.COM
Typically 12 news stories on main news page which is not very many.
Still no updates on Sat Sun. Hire someone to do it. Changing the age (hours) of the story is cheesy. Nothing special and now less local news.
Best News App You’ll Ever Get 5/5
This app is by far the best news app. Not only they have notifications for all the current news stories, you can also choose if you want your notifications to be about news, sports, weather, etc. 10/10
Too many pop up adds lately 2/5
It used to be good. Now video advertisements pop up in the middle of reading an article or even when I try to leave feedback on their Feedback screen. I don’t even touch my phone and they pop up every few seconds. Very irritating. KARE doesn’t pay much attention to St. Paul. Stories hit National news before KARE picks them up. They need to pay more attention to new and less on Prep Sports.
Latest update freezes iPhone 8 1/5
It’s got a bug
