Earlene from Oakdale 5/5
By E Schmidt
Finding it seems very on top of news! I gust forget to use it.
I Love KRON4 3/5
I so appreciate getting local news and at a very reasonable subscription price. However I find it difficult to negotiate my way around the app. I’ll get a news flag on my front screen and it does not open to that article directly & it is not necessarily intuitive where to look for it. Also, I’m not sure if it’s the app or my phone but the videos time out so I don’t use them. Regardless, thank you KronOn!
Good coverage, but accompanying sound for videos seems hit or miss. This isn’t a problem with my ABC 7 app or other news apps, so not sure what’s going gonna with the KRON app.
KRON does a great job of broadcasting the latest Fire & evacuation info during wildfires. This BayA Native is able to monitor & share info with loved ones on social media from my iPad on Maui. Friends in NorCal can download app & watch when the power is out if they have cell coverage or wi-fi. Great community service! Highly recommended and appreciated.
Try Harder 1/5
To put it simply this station sends alerts for breaking news that has already transpired. They also provide links to live coverage that are absolutely not live. It’s recorded and replayed throughout the day. This is deceptive and should be criminal. Just another business disguised and a public service.
Sometimes good sometimes not so good but I appreciate the info thank you
Terribly unstable 1/5
By SF Muffintops
KRON4 News is great to watch on TV and I was looking forward to being able to catch stories from my phone. Since installing this recently, however, I can barely read a single story before the app crashes. Some articles won’t open at all - app just crashes. Pretty disappointing and useless.
**** 5 stars 5/5

For news, I depend on KRON, for up to the minute news! Thank you, all your updates! Also, Thanks for covering East Contra Costa County with traffic! 5 Stars
Notifications mysteriously keep reenabling 3/5
By Shawn c
The app is good for the most part, but once a week or so I notice that more and more non-important alerts keep popping up in my notifications. I go into the app, and, sure enough, alerts like “Trending Now” are reenabled automatically. I shut them all off except for “News Alerts” and the process repeats itself later. It’s getting very annoying.
I’m still keeping an eye out for a better local news app that doesn’t spam me with superfluous notifications in attempts to harvest more clicks.
Good source for local Bay Area news 5/5
By Karl Chen34
I like the app gives me good local news
By Rock creek girl
I lived in San Francisco’s bbt I live in AUBURN and now I. Am glad I can. Get KRONI LOVE KRONAND I WILL ALWASHLISTENTO IT
Good – plus a suggestion 4/5
Would be great if you could cover all the action going on in local town halls fighting the untested for health impacts 5G microwave radiation street antennae plan being forced upon us by the FCC.
Interview Dr. Joel Moskowitz at UC Berkeley (Public Health) for starters.
Why bother 2/5
It’s basically a web experience with some junk wrapped around it. Not well designed. Video clips fail all the time. You are a SF Bay Area news station - would be great if you could tap into all the talent here and get a real app built that works.
Excessive alerts and constant crashes 1/5
By Sy 510
What could be the best Bay Area news app is plagued by constant crashes.
Your videos does not always work
Stories Not Available TOO QUICKLY 2/5
Too often, in fact, most often when I open an alert on my cell about a news story posted that same day has already been removed. Very frustrating. It’s so frequent, I’ve learned to not even bother trying to access the story older than a day using the KRON app and look for the story elsewhere. It’s getting so bad I’m even thinking of even deleting the app.
Kron 4 has been my go to for news for years. The repetitive infomercials made we switch to channel 2
App needs work 3/5
Really wish there were more customization options for notifications by topic or regions of the Bay Area. I get so many KRON4 notifications that aren’t relevant to what I need to know or care about. The app is also glitchy sometimes, such as the videos don’t play right, even if I’m connected to good WiFi.
69 year old news fan. 5/5
By thomas c. esque
Good to be able to access a fair, competent and reliable news source that reports the news and doesn’t try to manipulate the facts. Thank you old friends!
All good 5/5
Kron 4 news 5/5
By M nM
Get to know all the up dates n good news keep the good work👍👍👍👍👍
I can’t afford to pay for this 1/5
This is the best news in sf but now that we have to pay to see the news on the app it’s not so good. It should be free to the audience to community, they community has the right to know.
Very good 5/5
I love this app..
Video does not work 2/5
A few weeks ago the app stopped being able to play videos. I updated the app, still doesnt play videos. I can read the stories but cannot play the videos of the stories. Super frustrating.
Cancelling Option for Dan Mateo 4/5
I do not understand why KRON is cancelling their alliance with the service provider that connects lower income people to KRON.
Many can not afford the high prices of cable/Comcast/ Direct/etc. So they have to subscribe to lower tier services.
Now KRON is cutting ties so these people will not be getting this news info. Why??
Local News 4/5
I like your local news. Every once in a while though, your liberalism comes through and it usually makes me change the channel.
By millbrae john
Like being able to see the news where l am 👍👍🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Application is a perpetual glitch 3/5
It’s like an 80’s application, I’ve downloaded the app in my fire stick to watch the news but it gets stuck every 5 minutes and right now I have 30 minutes in silence watching the Traffic, is like a horror movie and I’ll be on it in 30 minutes when I start driving to work!
Traffic cams 1/5
I like the app but like on the traffic cameras like bay bridge toll plaza and stuff like that how come they are still images why aren’t they like a live video like how they are when. They show them on the news on tv ? Can you please update that? Now why should I have to subscribe just to live stream the news that’s just ridiculous!! Now I give you two stars!
Drops connection constantly 1/5
By r sq
This app constantly stops while watching live news and also closes suddenly. Disappointing when I’m trying to watch the local news
Charging Fees.. 3/5
By Salisbury DB
I have been a fan of Kron for years, especially when traveling on the road. Now that you guys charge a fee for live feed, thumbs down!!
Visuals don’t line up with sound 1/5
Yet another day when none of what is on the screen is what is being presented verbally. And not just for a a few minutes- this lasts for beyond a reasonable amount. How can you be so slow to respond to a problem and have it happen over and over again. Really bad!
Decent app. Couple of fixes needed 3/5
When PUSH notifications are sent ... MANY times the article isn’t even on the app/website yet. Don’t send notifications out, unless the story is available. It’s lame to click on it and then ... nothing.
App is crashing — LOTS lately — on iOS.
Excellent (before) 1/5
Previously (when it was totally free) we had more content, videos, graphics, interviews, surveys, totally opposite to what we now have and that are exclusively for payment
Tony McGrath 5/5
Up to date news, great weather reporting and great app!
Without a doubt the most informative news network for the bay area Xfinity stop broadcasting this news network in Fairfield I do not know why but it is a shame any big mistake
They broke swiping - dang 3/5
The app doesn't support swiping through the news reports. I need to go back to the front page and select the next article from there. I hope that isn't intentional because I really like this app and I use it all the time.
BE REAL. WANTA BE THE BEST 4/5
Just don’t start CHARGING FOR SOMETHING THAT WOULD BENEFIT YOU USE COMMON SINCE
The app itself is ok, but whoever writes the content should be embarrassed. Poor spelling and many typos, one day constant “breaking news” alerts and the next nothing, makes you wonder....
Muy bueno. 5/5
Porque fácil de entender a los locutores.
Good reporting 5/5
By A young gir
Quick news for the moments
Use First 5/5
Have used Channel 4 for years. News is accurate and up to the minute,
Can’t find news story 2/5
Even if you use the exact words from the broadcast, search doesn’t give the story. Maybe they’ve I’m proved this function. I hope so.
I enjoy this News, I love your news cast!!
I have been a user of the KRON4 News App for nearly 2 years and now I’m forced to subscribe to news that is free?? I don’t even know if my family is safe in the flood areas of Guerneville. This is a ridiculous thing to have concerned families pay/subscribe for to find out if their loved ones are alive.
I’ll stick with KTVU 1/5
Don’t need to pay for 24/7 news
I’ll stick with KTVU
Good bye KRON app!
KRON 4 5/5
Great website 24/7 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
No point 1/5
Now that they’ve started charging for their live news, I have no need for this app.
