KCCI is Fair & Balanced! 5/5
Thank You to All Journalists for representing the integrity of Real Iowan values!
National News vs Local News 2/5
By Less than impressed, step up
Quit trying to be a national news network with stories from all over the US. Concentrate on local Iowa news. I can go to several national news media sites and get my info there. I rely on KCCI for my Iowa news. Narrow your focus and be be the best source of the news from Iowa.
Lack of news 1/5
I am barely looking at the app anymore. It’s just a lack of real news really. When there is no news to mention, KCCI is just posting random stories that have no significance.
Not real thrilled 3/5
Hard to find stories that pop up on the phone. Where did the weather app go I Closings at the top of the screen are good. Could use a little more refining
Issues with sound in video. 2/5
The weather video work fine but the news story have gaps of missing audio.
KCCI 8 3/5
Stories are not complete or not thorough. The site is not updated day to day with new stories or even on a weekly basis. There is a lot going on in this area. The video casts need to have typed also. More direct info for weather in certain areas instead of general.
This is the first app I go to for news. I sure wish the sports stories were updated more often. I keep seeing things a month old.
Stick to the facts report the facts ; 2/5
By ffej head
This used to be my number one news and the fact checker but anymore it’s not anywhere near the first place I checked. Today I will check with WHO first. I used to watch your six and 10 news broadcast anymore I don’t watch your news at all. Report the news don’t suggest opinions.
Good ap 4/5
The ap is good, I use it often. The only issue I have is when I get a breaking news update. It pops up on my phone when it is locked, which is what I want it to do but most of the time I don’t want to view it at that very moment, but usually within a couple minutes I end up unlocking my phone then doing something different, then wanting to go in and read it, but the article is not on the KCCI ap. So I end up having to google it or wait for quite awhile later to be able to read it on the ap.
Unfixed bugs 1/5
App crashes when viewing live broadcast
The weather portion is great
Focus on local weather 5/5
I have generic weather apps on my iPhone. But, I rely on KCCI to finely focus on Central Iowa. The breaking news stories are a nice framework to track current events.
By 123 Sam the Dude
Way too many videos with too many ads. Understand you get money from them. I turn them off. Rather read news on phone. I’ll watch tv for that.
I hate the intro noise 2/5
I hate the intro noise, with an ad. If I want to listen I’ll touch it. My phone is always on silence until I look at your app. It’s very frustrating.
Bring back the old app 3/5
Old app worked much better for me I still use it amazing how different it is from the new app
If I wanted national news . . . 1/5
This is a local site, keep it local. I rarely go here any more. Especially since Dave Busiek retired. I don’t care about sensationalistic news from other states. I have the rest of the internet for that. I want local news. It’s the Register anymore now.
Enjoy the app 5/5
I feel KCCI does a good job of covering central Iowa’s news and weather
The app is glitchy and often time doesn’t fully load. Always having to restart and takes a while to get to stories. Ads can be annoying but they have to do what the have to do.
You Can and Should Do Better 2/5
Since KCCI is typically rated the “best” in Iowa - Iowa’s News Leader (as you always say) then your website should be the “best” in Iowa. I won’t go into detail as other reviews pretty much cover my thoughts. To summarize - you need to walk the talk!
Jumps back 4/5
The only thing I don’t like is, if you’re half way down the page and you click on a story to read it, when you click back out it always takes you back to the very first story. Then you have to scroll back down to where you were to see the next stories.
Won’t load 2/5
Won’t load. Black screen is all I get. Uninstalled and reinstalled with same issue
Missing some info 2/5
I wish you would include wind speeds in the daily forecast. That’s important info if you need to be outside
Doesn't work 1/5
Every time I try to use this app it crashes after about a minute.
Horrible app! 1/5
Did away with the best weather app (Stormteam 8) and kept the really badly designed news and weather app!
Love it 5/5
Love this app it always keeps me informed about breaking news as well as up to date with the weather and it is always faster then any other news app I have...
thank you so much
KCCI a happy viewer
Like it buttttt.... 3/5
Love the app but it uses my battery like crazy!
Video cast for weather 1/5
You need to do better. On this so it gets changed to a current one more often.
News click bait ads 1/5
By kcci disappointment
Hate that I have to watch a commercial when I just want to see the weather or news article. Also you never update the weather report only several times a day. Looking for different news providers bye bye KCCI
Review of KCCI mobile app 3/5
By O. Ben
I cannot rate this as an excellent app, stretching by giving it three stars.
A combination of having to wait so long for videos, and stories that are months old ie: Ringo Starr performing at Ames, tornado that hit Marshalltown in JULY, are still on this app. Can't we update these stories more frequently?. Are my two biggest concerns, there are other concerns, but minor ones.

Bring back the weather app 1/5
I liked the old KCCI app for weather. Now it’s not supported and you have to use this one. I do not want to open for weather and see news about child molesters on the opening page. Deleting this and looking elsewhere for a weather app.
Review weather 2/5
Don’t tease the audience to wait for more details later. Weather is the most important story don't sell us on watching more news when we need to get the weather details and get on our way in the morning.
New KCCI App 2/5
I do not like your new app especially the weather. Cannot pinpoint my location. The app is slow and I’m very disappointed.
Long ads 1/5
15 second ads are too long between each video.
Make it one 30 second ad ,then play videos without ads.
Old/new app 1/5
Liked the old app better
Just like the rest 1/5
I used the old StormTeam8 app. Loved it. Just the weather, no news, no annoying ads. I’m not going to use an app that is just a mini website. I just want the weather. To bad it was the most accurate.
Love it! 5/5
I always know what is going on even before it comes in the news sometimes. I like how it is updated frequently.
Pop-Ups Are So FRUSTRATING! 1/5
I really don’t mind a 4-5 second pop-up advertisement...but the 15-30 second ones are very intrusive and shows KCCI has no regard for consumers time.
I just CLOSE YOUR APP & GO TO ANOTHER SOURCE!
Breaking News 2/5
Maybe think about what’s actually breaking news... In addition, if you’re going to send breaking news alerts, maybe you could actually have the story available on the app at that time?!
I changed my rating to a 2 today. About 50 minutes ago I got a BREAKING NEWS ALERT!!! for something from THREE DAYS ago. About a lottery ticket. Ugh. Definitely needed to know that ASAP, especially since I read about it 3 days ago....
Works but 2/5
By Farm girl 59147
KCCI updated this app a while back and it stinks i uses to go to this page for
Weather but not anymore had to download another app because they took away the 7 day written forecasts i wanna read the weather not get pictures for only 3 days Plus the format for news stinks needs to not have hidden stories cant find a story after its been posted they hide them very poor app do not recommend
Tv 8 2/5
By More real news
Most stories are not worth the time needed to get through the commercials. The notifications on the phone are impossible to find on the app. Weather is all about fear motivation! Too much hype and not enough news.
Slower news than newspaper 1/5
By Mental unrest
Sunday night at 11pm and the main stories on top of page are still there from Friday. Never thought I’d see the day where I stated newspapers are more current than a online news app.
Not entirely satisfied 3/5
When I receives notification I expect to open the and find the story, most usually the story is not there until later. Very frustrating.
Come back 1/5
I’m close to dumping this app for two major reasons. I’m tired of having this app nag me to share my location EVERY time I open it. The second reason is that it now includes national “news” from all over the country, as if it was local. Come on KCCI, you’re better than this.
Old app better, easier to use and navigate. Poor “upgrade “ 1/5
By ankeny resident
Two stars 2/5
The stupid half headlines you put on the app are a gimmick. Plus the push notifications are poorly timed or aren’t worth of a push notification.
Best ever 5/5
By Miss Jolly Rider
Best TV station ever. Thank you KCCI for being here for us.
Location annoying 1/5
By ghost mafia 320
Every time I opened the app it would ask if I would enable location so it knew where I was. Super annoying...here’s where the app is: no longer in my phone.
Frequently I simply close the app due to ads. I can understand a 10 second ad, even 15. I understand you need to pay for stuff, but come on!
Also, you have more stories NOT about Iowa rather than IA. There is so much good in our State, focus on it. Stay out of politics and figure a better way than your tiny lines upper left for weather, etc.. in other words, your app kind of stinks.
Liberal Bias 2/5
KCCI is definitely slanted towards the lib.. like much of the mainstream. Their broadcast really doesn’t offer any substance.
