Great news source!!! 5/5
The only Tulsa news app that isn’t cluttered. News alerts are often and keep me updated.
Deleted app 1/5
This news app is the worst of all local news stations. Notifications won’t take you to a story. I don’t think Channel 8 updates the stories very often.
Notifications are awful 1/5
By Science 12345
You get a notification, then you click on it, then you can’t see the related news story. Ever.
Blows up your phone!!!!! 3/5
Notifications really blow up your phone during the newscasts. They are not necessarily breaking news as it happens throughout the day, they are whatever story is airing at the time on the air.
App is nice looking and seems to work fine, but news only seems to be updated about once per day, so you could be reading yesterday's news.
Supposedly huge update.. still no landscape on iPad 2/5
Seriously.... you release a brand new app and claim it is better and faster and it STILL does not support landscape mode on iPad.... deleted as waste of time as my iPad is always in a keyboard case and I have no desire to hold it in portrait... ridiculous...
Plz fix 2/5
None of the videos want to play since the new update.
This app is horrible 1/5
By C C Ryder
Old and outdated news, cannot locate breaking news flashes, too many taps and swipes to find pertinent stories and way too many adds. Needs significant updates or complete reprogramming.
To open apt 3/5
By Former 8 fan
Cannot understand how to do all the tapping and swiping to open this apt
Worst Tulsa news app 1/5
Half the time a news story only loads the banner image and no content. When it does pull up the story, many times it's not the story you tapped on but some other story from the list, leaving you tap randomly until you stumble on the actual story you want. 100% of the time the video does not load, sure it loads the commercial but never the video for the story you want to see. And of the stories that show up on the feed, many of them are days, if not weeks old, being persistent from day to day...far from newsworthy.
Ktul app 1/5
By Kast meka
Ktul app crashes each time i view a video or select livestream.
Can't get the navigational instructions to clear so cannot access any content.
iPad app 1/5
By Jump over Jack
The news 8 iPad app for news etc is so poor. Don't use any longer, deleting app
This is a terrible app. Ads are constantly running and popping up. It slows the app down a lot. I have news apps for all of the news stations in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, and this one is by far the worst. It's just a big commercial.
I agree with "flawed" 1/5
By Happy and inspired
Channel 8 sends you a teaser but you are not able to open that story .. My husband and I have both deleted this app (independently, I might add...now using Channel 6 app with success
Bad App 1/5
Something happened. I'm not sure when they changed this App but it no longer works well on my iPad. I will be removing it altogether if they don't improve it soon. Jan. 2016
By Julia 1974
When a breaking story on KTUL shows up on my iPhone, I cannot locate the story once I open the app. This is quite frustrating.
Latest Revision 1/5
By Joby M
In portrait position, text is not formatted to fit my IPad Air screen and I don't seem to have options to fix it. Text runs off the edge of the screen. Please give me back the older version of this app.
Old revision is five star, current revision is zero.
Can't get the app to open stuck on tutorial screen.
Pure garbage 1/5
The new "next generation" update turned this app from occasionally useful to always regrettable. Since 0 or .5 stars isn't an option, it gets the lowest available.
Works half the time 2/5
The older one was much better. Half of the time, it says "No articles were found for the selected categories." Selected category is local news. Really?
Not good 2/5
I do not like this app! The format is terrible and it doesn't rotate.
A waste of time 1/5
Uninstalling this app due to the continual misuse of push notifications that are advertising and not breaking news. Shame on you KTUL.
Skip This App! 1/5
KTUL takes advantage of a captive audience and uses push notifications to advertise and tease their news program. If you want to be bombarded by ads instead of breaking news, this app is perfect for you.
Horrible layout! 1/5
Please go a different direction with the layout. You could do so much better if you just tried a little bit.
Not so good 1/5
When I go to the website they have more school Closings, you need this on the app, please fix it
KTUL news 2/5
I hope someone will see this. I can not share a story on Facebook that option is available but it won't work. I hope you are working on a FIX soon!
Much better since the update - better layout and interface.
Great app .....but can't forward videos 5/5
But need the ability to forward videos. Wanted to forward story about Tanner the blind dog and no way to do so. Guess I have to go to full website version to do it??? Or hope I remember next time I'm online with my computer? Just need to be able to capture a link to the story. Otherwise good
Shame on Apple 1/5
By Blue Max
Shame on apple for not allowing To down grade to iOS 5, what a bunch
Of creeps...map in iOS 6 is so lame If I had known this a head of time, I wouldn't
Of up graded... I have lost all respect For apple... Now,
The only reason I bought phone in the first place, was because of the map. Why post here? Because the giant removed my post on there site, trying to step on the little guy... I will never...
Never.. Buy another product from apple again. NOW... I know why, the bite in apple is there... And it isn't a good thing.
App terminates 1/5
I used to use to get local news but now the app immediately terminates when I open it. I have uninstalled and installed with same result. It is not usable.
Who built your ridiculous app? 1/5
Seriously? You have a weather app already. Now it pops up here first? Fire the guy who designed your app and thought that was a good idea. He/she obviously does not have even a basic understanding of what your customer wants. If you want to know what your customers want, feel free to email me. Quit guessing.
Also your ads are now flashing and obtrusive. Why won't you just fix the app and quit being a-holes?
Dislike weather first! Want the NEWS FIRST!!!!!! Come on guys!!! News first.... Weather second!!!! Look at your reviews! : )
Several problems 2/5
I do not like that the weather pops up first. Also, when I try to edit what I want on the tabs at the bottom they are not saved. I have to select top stories every time I want to read what's happening in Tulsa.
By Bonnie Graham
When I open this app it shuts down before I can read the first headline. When this issue is fixed, I will revise my rating.
Dislike new update 1/5
I loved the app until the new update. With the new update, the first information that comes up is the weather page and not the news/stories. You now have to go to the more tab and click on top stories. Do not like this.
Dosen't load 1/5
Downloaded this app and it refuses to load. Very disappointing.
Best radar 4/5
This app has the best radar for NE Oklahoma - better than 2, 6 the Weather Channel & the Weather Bug. It also has the best looking long range planner. But it's not my first choice for local news and sports there I prefer 6.
App needs work safety issue! 1/5
With the severe weather we get in Oklahoma we should be able to access live streaming radar instead of 5-10 minute delayed still pics. Also needs to support rotating screen to change screen layout.
Not for the iPad 1/5
I downloaded this app because it said for iPad but when you open it ,it is a tiny little square and it doesn't rotate. in the bottom corner it has a 1x button to zoom and all that does is make it blurry don't download until they actually make it for the iPad
The Most Accurate 5/5
By J Bird76
This is a great app for us in North East Oklahoma. Have all the news and weather on the go at your finger tips. You will also know that it is the latest and accurate news and weather because it is KTUL News Channel 8. THE ONE AND ONLY. There is no other news like it in Oklahoma!!!!
I agree with the other review..... Stop calling yourself HD when your not......2 blue bars is not HD............ This is why I switched to channel 2!! Go download their app it's a little bit better!
