Leftwing media 1/5
Stick to the facts. We are more aware of the narrative. Your opinions does not matter.
The Best in Texas 5/5
KXAN has the best news in the state. Could possibly be the best in the Southwest. A huge part of that is the weather team lead by Jim Spencer. He is from Oklahoma and understands how important a good predictor is in the South because of it’s unstable weather. I started in the Texas Panhandle and a weak weather man does no one any good. People that don’t know the weather can get folks killed. I am pointing to the difference between the Austin area and the Hill Country. The other stations do not give good weather for the Hill Country or even include it in there predictions, but KXAN does. Up to the minute straight reporting of the news with good intelligent reporters.
Mrs. Bradley 5/5
We have spent our 5:00 time with all the crew of KXAN since 1990. Robert Hadlock is practically a member of the family. Jim Spencer was obviously influenced during our many years in Oklahoma by our then favorite, Gary England. We have learned to trust Jim Spencer in the same way during weather emergencies. He is a trusted professional!
When I’m in need of breaking news KXAN delivers 5/5
From crime to weather and breaking news I love this app.
I am truly impressed with KXAN professional expertise and all their great communication skills in helping the Humanities , including myself, know and understand exactly what is happening. Thank you and all employees that help make this happen
Proofread before publishing! The typos were especially egregious last night!!! 1/5

Liberal bias out of control 1/5
By sick of liberal bias
Had to stop watching KXAN and news....now deleting app. Liberal bias is extreme or folks are not smart enough to realize it. Either way, found the local fox station and app...little less bias and less “forgetting” to include all the facts and both sides. Good luck, watch your ratings continue to nose dive like national nbc unless you figure it out.
Not one mention of the environmental protest or women’s march 1/5
By really man6667
I really like this app on updates for weather, traffic and crime happening in Austin but it seems to keep leaving out very important events that happen in town like the environmental protest and women’s march. Please tell people about these things in advance so they can prepare to go to them. We don’t all have time for tv and Facebook.
The bias is annoying... 1/5
I hate to be another reviewer commenting on bias of kxan, but it has made it increasingly more annoying. Kxan has always been my go to for local news, as a life-long austinite. For mobile, I mostly just used it for the push notifications of local news, to stay on top of things when they happen.
Ever since trumps election, their push notifications have shifted (and yes, this is after I tuned my notification settings). They now promote democratic events on a national level.
KXAN, I downloaded you for LOCAL news, not national democratic debate notifications. I know you cater to a very liberal city, and that makes most of it excusable. But for national events and news, can you please leave it for people who have the cnn app, or the Fox News app, or NPR, etc. you are AUSTIN news, not Austin & DNC news....
I am so happy to see the news come back home we miss y’all when y’all were gone glad to have you back
Nothing works! 2/5
By Lacey Wilc0x
A video playback error has occurred :( is what I see on every article that I open. Your adds will load 100% of the time, but your own content won’t. This goes for both this app and the weather app!
YOU ARE THE GREATEST! 5/5
Keep doing what you have been doing. THIS WORKS!
By will morgsan stone
i love kxan because i get to tread about weathor ans crime scenes
The app 5/5
Easy to use and informative I switched to KXAN once KVUE upgraded their app. KXAN is way better don’t change! Keep it simple
Notification frustrations 4/5
The app itself is good, it’s the constant useless notifications that you get. There is no way to set them to breaking news, the only other option are the top story notifications, which will bombard you with worthless information you don’t really want.
Problem with interactive buttons 1/5
Kxan has always been my go to weather page but in the last several months a google add box , that can not be removed, covers the interactive buttons on the radar page. The page can not be effectively used as intended which renders it useless to me.
7/5/19 Review 1/5
By Sperry Twiggins
Super crashy since last version update. Please fix!
KXAN review 1/5
By Texas Deplorable Gal
KXAN is way too liberal for my taste. I care ABSOLUTELY ZERO about news concerning Austin homeless, gays, and other liberal agendas and politicians pandering for votes!
Direct TV ATT Uverse 5/5
By South Austin Mad As Hell Gal
Furious, Terribly Ticked my No 1 KXAN choice abruptly dropped.
I will change providers.
South Austin Mad-as-Hell Gal
Unavailable Articles 2/5
I think it’s really inconvenient that the articles are not available after 24 hours. Sometimes I do not have time to read the article the same day they come out. I would really appreciate if this could be fixed, I would really hate to delete the app because of this reason.
Get rid of ad location. It interferes with radar
I find that KXAN only reports when they have researched the information. The weather info is great!
It’s good as long as it stays on. Commercials should be in between even if it’s a loop
I wish I didn’t have to read EVERY article down to the end to see the next article. I used to be able to swipe to the left to see the next article. In fact, a long time ago, I had a sort of “table of contents” to see all of the current articles. Now I scroll, scroll, scroll....... No fun to read articles that I’m not interested in.
My source for news! 5/5
KXAN is my trusted source for news all day long. Thank you!
By have tried2
News is interrupted too often due to weak signal. This is the only station out off 55 that does this
Hangs on iPad 1/5
By Fix today's paper
Never updated. Junky app.
Notification Blasting 1/5
This app has too many places to manage notifications. All I want is weather notifications. Instead I keep getting top story notifications. Even when I turn them off.
Additionally they have a notification area in the settings, but that doesn’t seem to accurately manage all notifications as there isn’t a “top story” setting there, but there is when I click into the notification. Not that the latter works.
KXAN news 5/5
By Dane's mom
Our preference is now and always KXAN. The weather, news, investigation and everything I find most informative. The weather is the most up to date. I have loaded all news and weather alerts for o be more up to date though we live in Fayette County.
Excellent news coverage! 5/5
KXAN provides relevant local, state and national news on a consistent basis. I can always depend on the Weather Team to also receive as accurate a forecast as possible! Even further, the Investigative Team also provides a great service to the community and achieves results! Great station!!!
Great news source!! 5/5
By Renee sun city
Love it when I get an alert!
Wonderful way to keep informed!
Today the ads came 2/5
When the ads are bigger than the news articles, I’m out. Loved this app but the ads are too much.
The intent of the app SHOULD be to build loyalty to KXAN as a brand to get people to turn to KXAN for their news (and sell ads there). Trying to monetize the app on its own will do the opposite.
Liberal agenda news 1/5
Can you keep your opinions and agendas to yourself and just report the news please
I appreciate the up to date information they provide
Live stream is trash 1/5
By dont worryabout it
Live stream is garbage
Better than KVUE 5/5
More news, more up to date, app always works. Deleted KVUE and so glad I switched to KXAN.
The best news in town 5/5
Very practical and very informative
A must have! 5/5
If you need information about your surroundings this is the app to have. It alerts me on issues on I-35, Weather events crime etc..
I wonder why the same stories pop up on the main screen for over 24 hours... doesn’t the newsin Austin ever change?
Love the investigations! Wish app could be more interactive 4/5
I really love how this news company investigates and finds tons of dirt that really needs to be uncovered in this town—!! It’s really cool and great old-school journalism (like it was before all the corporate crap got in the way like with the big news media outlets...)
Yet sometimes I do wish I could comment on the story, and/or see how many other people are aware of the story (just a simple count of who clicked on it) and also find a way to follow-up on the story a little easier as we are often left hanging and have to investigate ourselves through the app to find the updates—-when news seems insignificant to some—-but overall, this is a great source of news..! I do seem to see tons of typos as well that are just kinda baffling in today’s auto-correct world, but ya know—not a big deal. Just a little weird:)
Traffic map 2/5
By Christi M
I got this app strictly because the online website stopped pulling up the traffic map for me every morning on my phone. So, I thought to myself ok they want people to get the app, so I did. A week later guess what isn’t pulling up on the app now??? You guessed it. The traffic map. I just want to look at the traffic map to see how I need to come into to work every morning I don’t want to read where the trouble spots are, which is what I have to do now. The only thing I do like about the app are the notifications as to what’s going on. This is my first news app and will probably be my last. Good job with that guys. Now fix the traffic map!!!
"Content Not Allowed for Streaming" - Are you a streaming news app or not?!?! 1/5
By Wy's Mom
Too much down-time with lame "content not allowed for streaming" banner. I'm looking for news reports, real-time and recently aired. Switch to the KVUE app, at least you don't have to wait around for the app to designate which elements of the broadcast you actually get to see.🙄
My favorite news 5/5
I like the anchors ,The in-depth studies and investigators, the weather reporters are great and I can always depend on them to stay with me in times of turbulent weather , I like the instant updates I get of things going on in Austin & area ... the only local channel I watch for the news. I must thank all the people behind the scenes that I can’t see that must be keeping everything also running smoothly. Keep up the good work & thank y’all ! ❤️🇺🇸
The news that I watch! 5/5
By Miss Dre H
I love KXAN news! It keeps me updated on Austin and surrounding areas news. We were on the kxan news when my daughter Lana had to be rescued in the 2015 floods at bluff springs and onion creek. I appreciate the care and concern of the reporter. I think her name is Ashley but I could be wrong. She’s a young lady that I now see on the regular KXAN news. It’s was a horrible ordeal but we learned from it and couldn’t believe we made front page paper from the photos! It’s a part of history that will remain.
I have the KXAN app and I wake up to the most current news. It’s great! Thank you for keeping me up to date. Love the channel.
Tornado warning 1/5
Wish u all would have been on our side last weekend!!!!! Seems like everyone was off work!!! And we didn’t get any alerts or warnings!!! Hopefully u will figure out the work schedule , so everyone is safe ! Hello it is Memorial Day weekend !!!!
Ad / Hijack 1/5
Done with this app after today. When you click to the app from a link someone posts or even open the app your phone is hijacked with “You are the 1000 user today” crap from web development 10 years ago to ads that prevent you from reading the article because if you click to close the ad, the ad opens up. Grow up KXAN you are better than this crappy app
Annoying video ad leaders. 5/5
The app crams many news videos with obnoxious 15 second lead-in ads you can’t turn off, for products and services you don’t want and don’t need. So in retaliation, i never watch their news videos. We are not a captive audience. Too bad your advertisers don’t realize that! Their ad video leaders only annoy and repel their imaginary potential customers.
Enjoy reading news from your area. You even include current news from Louisiana and other areas. Very interesting and pertinent news. Even though we’re from Louisiana, we have lots of family in In Texas. You guys do a great job! Thank you for the great work!❤️
