Last Place OKC news app 3/5
By Happy Dork
I haven’t been watching channel 5 since I was a child. I’m getting ready to turn 64 yo.
I’ve always liked the way they cover and report local news better than the other 3 stations. The one thing about the app that I can’t stand is if you don’t open the app every day they quit sending the news to you. I don’t click on every app every day. This is a practice they need to quit doing. Keep sending me the news even if I don’t visit the app daily.
I’m beginning to be concerned over a seemingly increase in biased reporting on the national level.

We sure will miss Michael on the weather but when you no longer honor our flag you are the same as Jane Fonda in a home where both of us are veterans. My 26 yr Marine, shot down in Vietnam would say your right to dishonor our flag and support a group such as BLM was what he fought for. SHAMEFUL
You are MSM Now 1/5
Sad all You can do is Regurgitate the MSM Talking Points. Why watch you when All the other MSM are saying the same thing. The weather is the only reason too tune in for.
Ad mute button 4/5
I love the app and would love to be able to mute the add that comes up when you click on a story to read. Video is great but not if you happen to open it in quiet setting and the add starts playing with no way to instantly mute it.

Update the weather more often! Make the weather map quicker to access
Some stories are years old. 2/5
By Prof McCue
As someone who really loves this station, I am constantly disappointed in this app. Stories are written sloppily with no apparent effort to proof read before posting. There are misspelled words and in some cases missing words as well as other grammatical errors. There are also very old stories still showing up on the app that have been there for YEARS. It seems like we should have enough news these days to resupply the app.
I understand that everyone is human and makes errors but when your business in communication, I expect a higher level of professionalism. There really is no excuse these days with apps like Grammerly, etc.
Also, it’s very frustrating when I see breaking news on TV and then attempt to find the story on the app and there is nothing there.
This app could be so much better than it is.

It’s great!!! You all are on top of it and keep us well informed!!! Thanks so much! Best local news app!
By Saint. Theresa23333
KOCO keeps me current about what is important to me. The pandemic, the numbers, CDC recommendations. The weather team is the very best in our viewing area.
Article textcut off 2/5
On my iPhone the text of an article cuts off when an ad image is below it. I thought it would continue after scrolling past the ad but it doesnt. I loose a lot of info. So much so I’m thinking of switching my news to a different app.
By Senior Santa
TOO MANY ADVERTISEMENTS.
At least I’m not the only one. 3/5
By you dont want neg response
I noticed someone else had the same problem I have. I will click on a story to read it. When I want to go back to the home page it starts you all the way back to the beginning of the articles.
Also some stories have been there for what seems like an eternity with no updates or other information. I think I was generous with 3 stars.
If I wanted to be interrupted by idiotic advertisements, I'd watch TV. If I wanted to be limited to VIDEOS of the news, again, I'd watch TV! The only place left to go if you want to actually READ the news is KWTV's app. So, goodbye KOCO!
App Review 1/5
Too many Ads. News seems timely but not always objective in the presentation of a story about politics. Political support is slanted towards Republican senate and governor
Stories don’t load. Fix please 1/5
Stories won’t load. Please fix.
Could be better 4/5
I have noticed in most of the stories I read, it isn’t the full article. Parts are cut out or off. Sentences aren’t finished. Also I wish the radar didn’t go back almost a half day just to show you what rain is coming in and how. A few hours would be enough.
Hard to navigate 3/5
The easiest part is the weather. The stories, well it’s easy to see the headlines but then you open it and it takes you to a different dime toon. Lol I love channel 5 but News 9 App is easier to look at. Why complicate the news when it’s already so complicated...
Stories interrupted 3/5
The news stories are relevant but there are so many interruptions for advertising that I don’t want to finish reading them. Every video repeats the same commercial over and over. It begins to irritate to the point I want to never purchase anything from the advertiser. The weather is the only video worth watching. Some of the end of story content is followed by some pretty poor ads with accompanying poor images.
I love the new station but this app is frustrating. It constantly glitches when watching the news and is the only app I have problems with airplay. Wish these would get fixed.
KOCO channel 5 4/5
I love this app. I am a person that likes to read the news. Some stories are still only video stories, but the majority of them are reading ones.
Five Alive App 5/5
I like this app. I have all 3 OKC station’s apps.
They save me from ever watching tv. AND they warn me when to run for shelter. I’ve even done just that many times. What’s not to like!!
No Weather Videos Since Update 1/5
Since the last update, I can’t watch any weather reports. Selecting one takes me to a blank screen and freezes the app. I’ve tried uninstalling and re-installing with no luck. Very frustrating. Please fix soon!
Update weather videos 2/5
I don’t think you should’ve airing the 9 am video at 4pm. The ads says check in for the latest weather. Seven hours later is not the latest. Even the noon weather would better. You only report morning and evening weather and nothing in between.
Blank data 1/5
What’s with the blank articles and frozen pages in your app? It’s so frustrating to get an alert than find absolutely nothing on your app but a blank screen that is frozen and the only way out is to close out the app completely. Fix your bugs man!
Has a few hiccups.. but works pretty well overall 3/5
I get frustrated when the app jumps back and forth and plays almost fast forward. This is the main source of news and weather for me and my family as we travel and plan work. For the most part it works pretty well, aside from some of the before mentioned hiccups.
Not what it once was 1/5
By RC 2
This app use to be great for weather. I love and watch KOCO all the time, but I can’t get this app to warn me about weather anymore. It’s all news now. I did delete and reinstall it trying to get the weather part to work but it doesn’t. I’m at a loss here. I was mostly wanting it for bad weather and storms. None of it seems to work. They use to have a pp that was directed at severe weather and it was also great. I think I read where the App Store told them they didn’t need two apps. At least back then they both worked. Sorry to say I will delete soon and be looking elsewhere for bad weather alerts.
The team at 5 are#1 at keeping me updated so I can concentrate on what I have to accomplish 5/5
While it could certainly use quicker refreshening at times on a lot of the “fluff” pieces, those aren’t what I rely on this app for. It’s my daily “go to” app for things I truly need to know. Often, multiple times a day.
Poor navigation 1/5
KOCO has done a poor job overall with the app. Usually read their push notice and then seek out story from other sources. There app is very hard to navigate. Never use their app for weather. Usually find weather team doing Facebook live anyways. Don’t need their app with all of them using Facebook first
Mrs Smith 3/5
I like that this news app has stories and details not available on other news apps and they seem pretty well rounded with what they report. The app itself tho is sometimes frustrating. It updates too frequently sending you back to the top of the stories even when there isn’t anything new added. And i do feel like I have hunt down ‘new’ news between the stagnant ads listed in a news type area. And some of the stories are months-old.
Used to Enjoy 1/5
I used to really enjoy this app but lately you cant read a story because it cuts the right side off so much it doesn’t make sense. I have notified KOCO twice and no improvement so I’m deleting it and using News 9 and 4 for now. 🙁
Has it all! 5/5
Carry the most important news and it’s how I keep on top of current situations.
Just to let ya know I love ya! 4/5
By Lil' Britch's
Love your content and newscasters but have trouble with seeing all the content.
Videos and articles just disappear randomly while being viewed, then I can’t find them again.
Oklahoma news 5/5
I have searched a lot of news channels for Oklahoma and you guys are the best, thank you. 👍
Great app 5/5
Easy to read, displays great, relevant info
Ups and downs. 4/5
Thumbs up: best and easiest to navigate information on COVID - 19. Articles well written. Best weather availability It’s right up front. Plus the weather app is great. Scrolling breaking news at the top is useful.
Thumbs down: ads. I’m really tired of having to navigate below the Gastro Lounge and Modified margarita ads to get to the stories. I realize you need ads but placement and choices aren’t well done. Old news intermixed with newer news.
Please fix the skipping issue half way through the news it will cut to commercial while the news anchors are in the middle of a sentence or it will jump 4-5 min ahead or backward. Or just cuts off completely. It does it so often I may just need to find another news channel to watch OTR.
Mira build death toll 2/5
By warren lupton
You need to show the people killed a little longer. Some of your people are not shown long enough to focus on their picturesj
A bit difficult to navigate 3/5
By Gran "D"
It’s like an msn.com story that requires a click on NEXT a half-dozen times to read one story. I do, however, like the headlines notifications and most times figure-out how to maneuver through the App to get those stories.
Font is too small , 3/5
By photog bob
Agree it’s not updated often enough. But biggest improvement would be to use a larger font to make it easier for older folks to read it.
Needs updating more frequently 4/5
I love channel 5 news and want to live this app, BUT...it’s so infuriating to see the 4:30am weather forecast still posted at 9pm. Happened again the other day. When no rain was predicted, but it’s obviously raining, it would be swell to see an updated report.
The same thing happens with news stories on the weekends. Don’t you employ someone to update news? Quit advertising that you offer the latest up-to-the-minute news and weather on your app. You don’t. Please do better.
Online articles 2/5
Every time I start reading an article the ads cover up the end of the story. Don’t bother putting the articles online. No one can read them
Best I can find 4/5
This app is awkward but eventually tells me what is going on.
Can’t read entire story 1/5
By Online newsie
Even after they have been notified, I am still unable to read the last line of a story because it’s covered by an ad. Very frustrating!
Always Informative up to the date breaking news 5/5
By Amazed 1998
No matter if it’s is State or National story, breaking news, or severe weather you are on it. I appreciate it always.
Old news 1/5
Breaking News is hours old. Can you please roll off the weeks old “dance for Dylan” silliness??!! Stick to news stories and keep them current
Constantly ruin recorded game scores by excessive updates 1/5
Unfortunately I know it’s the race to release info first that drives your station, but I will be deleting the KOCO app. This is the 2nd time that you have ruined a recording of a sporting event that I was behind on due to putting my child to bed because you felt it necessary to release the score of the game as “Breaking News”. The NCAA national championship and the NFL super bowl. There needs to be a way to turn off sporting news announcement or something. I would consider breaking news to be something other than scores of a game.
Needs updating more frequently 3/5
By Takkng care of business
I check the App often only to see the same thing over and over again. I love KOCO, but please update.
Hate getting alerts and when I go to the app, nothing is new. Yesterday’s news or earlier. Also annoying is having to watch a video of the news. I’d much rather read it rather than disrupt people around me. 4 and 9 have it figured out and that’s why they are my “go to” for news.
