KING 5 app reviews

  • Freezes from ads 1/5

    By freezes from ads
    Glitches and freezes too much from ads.
  • Freezes on iPhone XS 1/5

    By ottfjdijde
    App is unusable on my new iPhone XS. It will open but freezes as soon as it opens. Needs more development. Worked fine on my iPhone 8.
  • Good content, buggy app 1/5

    By kevd311
    Like the content but it’s a chore to get into. It takes articles up to 45 seconds to load past the headline paragraph. Scrolling through an article can be super laggy. Video can take forever to load and then crash the app. It’s becoming more work to access the articles than it’s worth.
  • Freezes 1/5

    By K3yrtrf
    I have removed and reinstalled this app several times on iphone x. It keeps freezing up and unable to read stories. Will have to stick with Kirotv app as it works
  • All articles look like ads 2/5

    By FernFan813
    I’ve been looking at King5 on an iPad and there’s not a single article I want to click on. Every one is a large photo with some tiny font at the bottom. That’s what online ads tend to look like. Why make a news app that visually says, ‘Don’t click on me because your device will end up with malware.” Make your articles more distinguishable from the ads and I might continue using the app.
  • Weather 1/5

    By tlr0408
    The new weather page is awful.
  • King 5 TV 5/5

    Great job staying on top of new stories!!!
  • Love My Morning ImUp 5/5

    By nyPowwow
    This app is a great way to stay in touch with my daily morning routine of weather, traffic and news as I prepare for another work day. I “watch” LIVE on my smart phone as I walk around the house getting ready.
  • Not worthy 1/5

    By ShanShan919
    Unfortunately, the stories take forever to download. Or even better, it crashes and closes out. This isn’t a new issue either. I have removed and downloaded again, with no new changes. Still the same as before. This should be a top notch app for being a news source but it’s terrible.
  • Use the browser instead 1/5

    By bi-jc
    This app used to be decent, but has turned awful over the years. It has become slow, and doesn’t show the content until the ad is displayed first. It also refresh the topics so frequently that it is difficult for a user to get to the bottom of the list. Very frustrating to use.
  • Used to be my favorite local app 1/5

    By MaiseyD
    This used to be my favorite local news app, but now is the worst. This app crashes all the time. Very frustrating to be reading an article and have the screen go black, then shuts down the app. After checking for an update to fix this for the last month or more, I am now getting my news from other local news apps! Done!
  • Getting worse 3/5

    By Tartime06
    This app is becoming more of a battery drain and there are FAR too many videos, that pop up!! The weather screen is now half the size👎🏼👎🏼
  • Thank you!!! 5/5

    By carol "Nanny"
    BEST NEWS around!!! Thank you for being there for all of us!!! I am near Palm Springs this winter , but I check on your station almost everyday to keep up with my Seattle friend's and family. What's going on in your area is important to me!!!!!!
  • Ruined my forcast! 1/5

    By TSR inc.
    I loved this app!...until they just recently changed the weather forcast daily icons so you can barely see them now! This was my go to local weather on the job, being that I’m a foreman for a Roofing Company, I needed a fast and reliable weather call at a glance. Now this app is useless to us.
  • Extremely buggy 1/5

    By Crapity Crap Crap
    It used to be decent. I’d love to be able to use it, but it never completely loads the content, and then freezes. I’ve been using the KIRO app more & more just because I cannot use this app (which I’d prefer)
  • Crash all the time 1/5

    By reasuble
    This app is so bad it crashes all the time to many commercials it wasn’t like that before
  • Review 4/5

    By brh10
    You changed format which I don’t like and I am visually impaired and your site is no zoom enabled. I need a magnifier to read your stories
  • Thanks.... for the lousy update 1/5

    By Disappointed !!!!!!!!!!
    The new update automaticity set up videos and previews, eating up 3gigs of data almost costing me to run over my data plan. I wish I could get a local news app that doesn’t have video at some people actually like to read. Thanks for messing up this app
  • Seriously broken 1/5

    By Chipmunk1975
    This app has been in serious decline ever since USA Today bought the station but now I can’t even get into the app due to the adds crashing the welcome screen. Totally useless.
  • Boooo 1/5

    By Scotbaker
    I used to love this app for my daily local news. They recently changed from swiping right to next article to swiping up, making the viewer go through all the ads and other stories. No thanks. Been using another local tv app for my news.
  • App does not work 1/5

    By Dpcdpcdpc
    The app freezes up on my iPhone XS and is non responsive.
  • Terrible app 1/5

    By Health nut09
    I’ve been a long time King 5 viewer/supporter, but their app is awful and keeps getting worse. The last few updates have caused the app to reload every few seconds, so as you’re scrolling, reading the headlines, it will kick you right back to the top at random times, which is very irritating. Additionally they have added video play to the headlines page, so as you read the videos are playing (video playing only, no audio) which is incredibly distracting. This app has long bothered me, but these latest updates have finally made me decide to delete the app altogether, I’ll be finding another local news outlet.
  • Only app to regularly crash on my IPhone 1/5

    By Lazy Street
    This app regularly crashes on both my XS and iPhone 7. Video often crashes and links bring up the wrong articles. You would think a news outlet in Seattle of all places, could do a better job with their app. This is not a new problem. Come on kids let’s get it together.
  • Why change something that worked? 1/5

    By 1234bund
    The app used to work pretty good until someone had bright idea to change all pictures under highlights to videos. It is beyond slow and annoying on the good days and totally unusable most of the other times.
  • Meh 2/5

    By softballergurl21
    WAY to many push notifications. Not everything qualifies as breaking news King5. Let us choose what types of notifications we receive. Also - as I scroll down through headlines I somehow always get pushed back to the top of the page. Annoying.
  • Irritating last update 1/5

    By Romandude
    I noticed that I now have to scroll down to see the top stories instead of swiping left and right. Plus all the ads are in between the actual stories but with the same look so it’s very easy to select one instead of the news story. Will no longer be using this app for local Seattle news.
  • Stop auto-playing videos! 1/5

    By billtheengineer
    Terrible performance when every video starts playing simultaneously! Give users the choice of what videos they actually want to watch. Be reasonable!!
  • I love/hate this app 1/5

    By MizzDiana
    11/19/18 - Update - Be careful what you wish for. The app is now fixed, but what a terrible old fashioned mess you’ve created! I have to scroll down through tons of ads and rubbish to find the next story and the next and so on. Now the app has stopped crashing and it works, but it’s very user UNFRIENDLY! I’m tired of waiting for a fix, so I’m switching to the KIRO 7 app. For over a week now, the app keeps crashing! Ever morning I open it with hope that it will work, but no such luck. Please fix this!
  • Continuously crashes 1/5

    By cammoffatt33
    The app consistently crashes
  • New feature. Crashing. 1/5

    By Qrrtyccfsxc
    Had this app for a long time and had no issues. Now it crashes within several minutes every time. I’m out.
  • Not dependable 1/5

    By tleasley
    This app always freezes. Never can look at when I want to.
  • Stories don’t load, freezes and ads... 1/5

    By tiggers stitch
    I’m finally uninstalling King 5. It happens regularly where an update or something is done and suddenly you try to open a story and there is nothing there. Currently I get an ad for Veterans Day and “swipe up to dismiss” but all the swiping in the world and that ad won’t go away. Tried hitting the close button on the ad too... still there. It’s not the first time and obviously from experience and reviews I’ve read it won’t be the last so farewell.
  • So frustrating! 3/5

    By Rochester, WA
    I love King5 and keeping up on local news but 99% of the time the app opens but when I tap to open a story or try to scroll it freezes up! I tried to delete and reload the app and it worked for me the first time I got back on it but now it’s doing the same thing AGAIN!
  • Can’t get past ad at beginning of app. 1/5

    By Knightrider51
    This app hasn’t worked for awhile now. Freezes when you open the app and see the stupid ad that you can’t swipe up to get rid of, thus no KING 5 news or anything else for that matter.
  • Full of Ads 1/5

    By Seattle_mike
    It’s difficult to browse when every other topic is an ad and a banner at the bottom that’s very distracting is also an ad.
  • Unusable 2/5

    By Goodbye Everett Herald
    I’ll get an interesting notification, tap it, nothing. Go to the main page to look for a similar headline, nothing matching. 2 stars because the embedded ads played well.
  • Freezes on start 3/5

    By Grootbek
    App tends to hang on start.
  • Local News and Traffic app 5/5

    By Tessie Tu Tu
    I love this app, especially the Traffic information. It has been so accurate on slow downs and where traffic is flowing smoothly. It’s great to have local news at my fingertips from a respected news source.
  • Horrible App 1/5

    By Agaric2
    Update: Again, their content seems good, but they just don't seem to care about anyones ability to access it. I've called several times and they always tell me they check it out and see no issues--but, I don't have these problems with other news apps. So think about that & what it says about their business model. While their content appears very good, good luck trying to see it. Many stories don't load, or if they do it is longer than the several minutes I have tried waiting. Scrolling is frustratingly slow, and often I just get bounced out of the app entirely. I've tried emailing and calling the station but never ever hear back and nothing ever changes. Obviously, they don't care. I think the stations new ownership is running it on interns who change frequently. They are trying for a new new but it is not working.
  • Advertisements are bad 1/5

    By Qwerty12345
    All of the sudden nearly every time I try and open an article, advertisements pop up and you can’t get around them. Now I can’t even get passed the advertisement that pops up when you open the app. Rediculous. I understand the need for them but come on, not every time. Deleting the ap if it’s not fixed soon. Using a new iPhone xs so its not the phone. Only app I have problems with.
  • Crashes all the time 1/5

    By acgjsd
    Terrible non user friendly design. Slow and flakey categories. It’s just as bad as the website platform.
  • Twitter 1/5

    By Yogi Bear15!
    Twitter will not open with iPhone 6 or 7 or iPad, all iOS are updated, was working a month ago?
  • Need to be more fair and balanced in news. 1/5

    By Wtmaster
    Take a page from the FOX News program and stop pushing the progressive liberal agenda. No more fake news
  • Weather on weekends? Old news period on weekends 2/5

    By Dollydoesit
    Why is it that KING5 weather on the app is never updated on the weekends when it’s really needed? The radar is stuck on a loop from days ago and the forecast for yesterday is still on the page ? Gonna have to swing to KOMO if I want accurate news on Saturday and Sunday.
  • Gives me local news and weather 3/5

    By icecrystal23
    The ads are kind of annoying, but at least the app gives me local news and weather. They fixed some bugs that were driving me crazy.
  • Freezes up and a lot of adds 1/5

    By estoad
    Not bad when it works , but has a bad problem of freezing up. Can restart it over and over always get the same results. The adds are pretty excessive. It’s hard to tell if this is an app for adds or news.
  • Keeping me updated! 5/5

    By Jan0grade
    I love seeing things I need to know before I begin the day! I find myself so busy I am not aware of the news that is happening now! This app keeps me informed! Thanks

  • Terrible App 1/5

    By YankyG
    Constantly have issue with the King 5 app and it is getting worse. Only local Seattle news app where you get advertisements that have to be swiped up to get rid of and not they get stuck and will not move. Go to KIRO or KOMO, King can’t figure it out.
