Bad Update !!!!!! 1/5
By TC from Huntington NY

PLEASE FIX ,

Updated the yesterday and now it crashes while loading.
App crashes on startup 1/5
App crashes seconds after selecting it.
By Spinster 9
Today, the app doesn’t open. Generally, it needs improvement anyway. It doesn’t stream to the TV well; I can hear every other word. I pay a fortune for my Optimum service. I deserve an app that works!
Latest update not working 1/5
Latest update crashes on iPhone 8 with latest iOS 12.1. Tries to open but crashes and returns to phone home screen.
Doesn’t work on iPad 1/5
After latest iOS update this app doesn’t work. It won’t open and just crashes.
Keeps Crashing 1/5
After the update the app just keeps crashing. Doesn’t work at all anymore! iPhone 8 Plus
Where is the Radar ? 2/5
Why did you take away the radar ...Killing me
Where’s radar? 2/5
By Dale zee
I like the app and use it daily, especially to weather. With the latest update radar tracking is nowhere to be found. I miss it. Bring it back.
The update makes the app crash 1/5
The update in November of 2018 makes the app useless. It just crashes and shuts down. #deleted
App Broken 3/5
Most recent update broke the app
Crashes seconds after opening. Horrible.
Needs improvement. 1/5
Needs improvement. Every time I get a notification from News 12 I hit the notification and the story never comes up! Please fix
Constantly freezes 2/5
This app would be great if it didn’t keep on freezing in my multiple devices. Not worth downloading.
Notification links rarely work 2/5
Technically the app works far better then it did ever did. Crashes, freezes and refusing to open all appear to have been fixed over the years.
I don’t open the app unless I get a Notification of a story that may interest me. If you don’t open the link soon after it arrives the app opens to another story after an annoying ad. Then you have to search around and see if you can find a link. It’s really not worth the effort as it’s the same stories you can find in the Patch or Newsday.
Why bother 1/5
This app just like the channel is a waste. Same stories and never updates them or gives new one. Don’t bother
Way too many ads 1/5
No wonder all your on air staff are constantly pushing the app. I’m sure your advertisers love it but as a user who just wants a quick news update it’s ridiculous. I’ve given up using your app because the advertisement to content ratio is just way too high.
Seldom works 1/5
I use it to see the weather map which is buried many scrolls down. Will run ad then traffic and more ads then hang up halfway through weather - pretty consistent. Has been like this for a long time. Does Cablevision ever test this stuff?
Why do you guys keep ruining the live traffic and weather video feature? The last time you did this, you took it away completely without warning. Now it’s back, and you have to wait for a 30 second commercial...fine. But now, half the time when the content actually starts, it’s a sporting event? C’mon. News 12 Traffic and Weather (as labeled in the app) should be just that, no exceptions. I rely on that. FIX IT!
Would you like some news to go with your ad banners? 1/5
None of the screenshots have ads in them. How can they be left out when obnoxious banner ads are 60% of the experience with the app?
Ads Ads Ads Ads Ads Ads Ads Ads Ads 1/5
Noticing the recent uptick in ads, its WAY too much...20 second ad every time you click... utter torture. Ads blocking view above the fold. Deleting app after much enjoyment in getting my news here for the past year/s- it’s just too much... too much waiting, same ad over and over, and so slow to load anything. Bleh, so disappointing, especially as an optimum costumer and having forked over Thousands of $$, over the years. This just stinks, why cant i just enjoy a service?
Needs work 1/5
Where’s iPhone X support? Absurd it doesn’t support it yet. Also the bug with the weather section not refreshing the text forecast is unacceptable. One star.
Very very slow upon startup 4/5
This app is the slowest app I have. Upon initiating startup it takes several seconds for the app to open m.
Update : after deleting and downloading again from iCloud the app loads much faster.
Liked it better... 1/5
Liked the app better when weather, traffic and news were all seperate.
Years of login issues 1/5
Why are non Optimum customers treated as second rate? Every time there is an update to the app I am asked to log in with my Xfinity username and password, and every time it rejects my info. Hello, there are quite a few people on Xfinity in NJ!
Terrible app. It’s just a browser with a ton of apps. Really?
Doesn’t work on AppleTV 4K 1/5
Does anyone test this stuff?
The app constantly freezes on my iPad even though they have had updates. Please fix it!!!
Can’t stay in touch with home 2/5
I’m a LI resident and long time News 12 viewer. I also have a second home in Cary, NC. I’ve always stayed in touch with LI streaming News 12 on my iPad. How sad that I can no longer view News 12 this way. I have an Apple TV, but not the latest here. Otherwise this would have been 5 stars.
no log on 5/5
thank you so much for no log need. i happy.
App constantly has loading errors. Reinstalled, now I can’t even log in. Help screen doesn’t load. This is absolute garbage.
Deleted app 1/5
Confusing sign in. Could not get past it. Deleted app. Zero stars.
Apple TV 2/5
Can’t get news 12 on Apple TV because of past water bottle while you on the phone is good but a new TV very bad so I gave it to stars
Love the app, am hoping for iPhone X support. 5/5
Love the app, have been using it for a long time, and I especially appreciate today’s newest app update. Am hoping at this point that the developers add support for the new iPhone X, so that the app fills the screen entirely (I’ll email the developers and ask them if they can add this enhancement). Otherwise, it’s a great app and it keeps me updated on important events going on in the area 😊
Annoyingly loud sounder 3/5
The app itself is fine, and stable for a change, with a well-organized layout. But two stars off for what quite possibly has to be the loudest, most aggravatingly spine-chilling alert sounder of all-time.
Only one wish... 2/5
I wish that there would be only one app for the weather. Although the daily news is important, I only want to check the weather in the morning to see how my day is going to be planned out.
Perfect but... 4/5
By Drahcir J. Wolf
I don’t have any problems watching the news. This App is working good in my IPhone. The only complaint that I have is: why this App is not available to streaming on tv without using an Apple TV? Please do something about this. Thanks.
No longer working!!!! 1/5
By Jersey girl 1284
So I have the app for my Apple TV and now all of a sudden it’s loading??? This is beyond frustrating 😡
Broaden coverage 1/5
Please allow former residents who now live somewhere else to keep in touch.
Constant freezes even with excellent WiFi signal 1/5
By A practicing NJ lawyer
Even when in excellent WiFi coverage, app freezes up constantly. Picture quality is poor even when app is working.
Crashes on TVOS 11 1/5
If your Apple TV is running TVOS 11 the app will crash when you try to open it.
tvOS 11 1/5
Needs support for tvOS 11. Was working great on version 10. Now it just crashes upon open. Please provide a fix.
Don't bother 1/5
By Al Havemann
I really wanted to like this app, I watch News 12 a lot and while live tv is available via Optimum TV, that app only works on my home wifi, nowhere else. So one that worked from anywhere would be welcome indeed. Unfortunately, this is not it.
Strike (1): it's a carelessly produced, clumsy app. The content is spread all over the place and doesn't come close to the tv show. For instance, there's a whole Top Level topic devoted to "Cheddar Cheese Business" as a top menu item. A whole topic!. I was (and still am) totally mystified because I have watched channel 12 News every day for years and I have never heard a newscaster mention "Cheddar Cheese Business", not even once.
Strike (2): On the top of the screen a dedicated horizontal, full width menu bar occupies a full 3/4 inch (on an iPad) and its just for the menu bar, nothing else. At the screen bottom is an equally large area reserved for advertisements that followed me from screen to screen, never being absent. On what little useful screen space remains there is almost always a large picture or something that leaves just enough room for one line of text. So I look at the picture, scroll down to read text on the next page, scroll back up to look at the picture, scroll back down to read some more, up, down, up, down. Boring!
Strike (3): Description says live streaming, not really, I did find one place where a arrow seemed to indicate it would play a stream, I tried it, but whatever was playing had nothing to do with the live show I'm watching on my kitchen TV.
StrikeOut: The is a crude, carelessly written application. It's poorly organized and boring to use. Look elsewhere.
