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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Review on you. 3/5
By ffej head
To much on trying to push a liberal agenda. I just want you to report the news. I can make up my own mind.
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.
The news does not seem well balanced and at times incomplete of facts, whether political or just local news incidents.
Old app better, easier to use and navigate. Poor “upgrade “ 1/5
By ankeny resident
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.
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.
Lousy reporting. 1/5
By good way to stop report
Some true news but mostly fake news. So many ways for you to make it fake news. You should realize that people can see thru your reporting.
I see no change yet!
Don’t spend much time here!
Please stop the biased editorials.
Keep it up! 4/5
Love KCCI, have been watching this news channel since I was a little girl. Keep making updates to make the App more user friendly. Can be kind of glitchy & confusing at times. But this is the only news app I use. 👍🏼
Typos are unprofessional, especially in the headline of your top news story. (8/1/18)
By Paulette Z
Advertising blitzes a major annoyance
Rapid Headline notice from KCCI 5/5
I get an audio notice when a new major story is breaking. The notices are kept to only major stories.
Give us local news! 1/5
If I want national news I’ll go to a national news service.
Where did my story go? 1/5
I get notified my alerts have been shut off because I didn't open enough notifications. I try to open story notifications only to find I getting taken to the main screen with no hope of finding that story. Just an endless loop of crap. I love KCCI but seriously this is ridiculous. Two improvements: 1) As your audience, I shouldn't be 'punished' for not opening every story. Apparently someone has an bonus riding on the number off times the app is opened. 2) When a notification comes up it better be the first story I see when I open the app. It's 2018 this technology exists.
Not dependable! Only works 60 percent of the time!
Auto play ads...really? 2/5
Auto play ads, with audio and no way to mute it when you open a story? Really? I’d rather get my news from CNN. Can’t even read the news without having to turn my volume all the way down. Uninstalling.
STAY AWAY!! Too many ads and they are all the same ads 1/5
KCCI you have made things worse. Now almost every article is a video with a 15 to 30 second ad in front of it. And to top it off, these are the SAME ads I complained about months ago. I can't watch your app anymore.
Way too many ad's. EVERY video has an add attached. What is worse is that they are the SAME ad. Watching the same ad a half dozen times gets old fast. Kill half the ad's and give some variety and I will give more stars.
Not the best... 3/5
I agree with most of the problems people have noted-two things that particularly irritate me-when I get out of a story, it takes me back to the top of the page every time, then I have to scroll back to the bottom to find where I was. And seriously, are you going to keep that story about kids in Halloween costumes up until Halloween rolls around again? Can’t you find anything more current to share??
My review of you 4/5
By Dee L L
This and radio is my main source for news. I only wish you posted the dew point on your weather report when it’s hot. I have to visit another site to get the weather information l want.
Low priority after hours/weekends 3/5
Seems website is slow to update after hours and
On weekends. Just my experience
Alerts but no news 3/5
By alerts but no news
Once again I get an alert for something that’s happened but yet when I go to the site NOTHING!!!! Just now you issued a “tornado warning for your area” and NOTHING😡. Why waste mine/others time if you don’t have the story posted. The only reason I gave 3 star is because I still prefer the KCCI news cast better than the others.
Not happy! 1/5
You send headlines and then I go to the app and can’t find any information.
KCCI review 1/5
It’s very evident that your station is very liberal and that time given to a conservative viewpoint is non existent. You have become part of the fake news!
Because of that I have quit watching KCCI except for the weather.
Really ? 1/5
By precision seed
I complained directly to kcci bout the content being old - such as story where “tax payers will fund demolition of a building in Kansas City “, and the sports stories don’t change for days , “nascar ownership considering sale “ . Not going to name names of other apps or local news stations but I think the live news of kcci is great , but they are handing the running of the app over to a bunch of kids .
Tired of all the ads 1/5
By Naples 1
You have to watch advertisements between the stores so we get local news from other sources. We watch weather only on your app.
By bull honkey
You don’t update your site as often as you should.Example- Perry Rocks Desmolnes!!!! Very Old. Sports also very old and hardly ever updated and then you leave on site way to long.Sick of all the adds!!!
