  • Agreed it was better before. Jan 13, 2018

    By Jaisbone
    The only thing I like better is that video’s pictures doesn’t have the play button covering the middle of it before you play it & It is cleaner looking, larger, and clearer to view which is nice but the pervious version was organized better and had a better layout. Also I’m not sure but I think I have to register now to view it which is horrible. I can’t view it it says it needs to connect. So idk? The first video you view everyday shouldn’t have a ad for it. FYI it makes ppl not want to watch videos if they only see one thing worth watching. But the info should be all written below it. Also I got to say Travis herzog this Monday total got the weeks forecast wrong and was the only weather report that that said what he said. “Pacific cold front?” It’s the coldest week I’ve seen ever for houston. You said no concern for freeze?!?! I know the weather changes but you won weather man of the year. Step up to David Tillman’s level! ;) where’s Casey also? But I like your delivery Travis. But your lucky cheta got married or I would watch her still. She also got the closer prediction by a mile. Maybe next time you miss the weather by this much you can help me cover all the plants at my job. Because I thought I was good but it’s colder now than I’ve ever felt here.

    Well they have really done it. They took a five star app and turn it into a two star lousy one. All of the important features of the whole App are gone. The new app has little to no organization end it is very hard to find a live stream option. Ads are annoying and repetitive. The greatness of the original ABC 13 app is gone. This app has a really bad design, repetitive continuous advertisements and no lifestream option, all of which the old app offered. I would not waste my time with the new version. I wants five star app is now a two star app and is now being removed from my phone. I am moving to KHOU's app. Not only does their app have a better design it is also more easily navigable than this one. Don't waste your time on this app. It is not worth it. There are better apps out there for getting news.

  • Loaded with LIBERAL BIASED reporting. SAD. Jan 20, 2021

    By corgilova8674
    I give it 2 stars based on the news lay out and ease of use. This app caters to city of Houston ideology and does NOT represent a majority (area or population) of Southeast Texas. Years ago I felt as if “journalism” was reporting to the public important facts and unbiased review of current events. Not anymore. The “news” is really a condensed version of how the “reporter” sees the events using colorful adjectives to “put down” ideas and ways of life opposing their own. Having said that, it is understandable that this is what journalism has become given the fact that social media is doing a great job at limiting speech and stifling views opposing their own. It is SAD that our children may grow up in this environment. Real journalism should report on BOTH sides of a story which are based on FACTS. I would encourage news seekers to keep looking for alternative unbiased reporting whenever possible and teach your children the same-

  • Not what it used to be Jan 30, 2018

    By Biggest fat blob
    ABC 13 used to be my favorite news channel, I’ve watched them my whole life. My dad would watch the news when he got home from work and I’d watch too. It’s sad to see such an incredible newscast spin very biased stories. I hate to leave, I just can’t sit and watch this station turn into CNN. The days of getting the straight news with no bias is done. Cover the story, make the observation and don’t lean on one side of the other. Leave your opinions out of it, support the country and stop trying to create division or push liberal media. Many, many, many Americans are no longer trusting news sources, be careful ABC, its a slippery slide down hill. You need to remember ABC that half of the country still supports conservative views. Wish you the best, here I come Fox. And if Fox is doing the same, I’ll stop with them and no longer watch any news. Gain the trust of your viewers, spin the truth. If you don’t know the truth about the story, don’t air it.

  • Got bugs - Closes App for no reason Jun 4, 2019

    By Wonder one man
    ABC13 is my favorite news station. However this App needs some bugs fixed. It shuts down right in the middle of reading or watching. Not only my phone but also my husband’s phone. Then you have to open the App again and search for the article you were reading. Not liking it. Used to be 5 stars but not any more. If there’s a fix let me know.

    Why is it that ABC makes such a BIG deal over the immigrants trying to get to our borders ? Making it so sad . No one made them bring their families through such horrible conditions. Why don’t you care about our American citizens that live in poverty . Even our veterans that went to war for you . There are children that don’t have enough food to eat . You need to clean up your news. I can’t even watch it anymore and it was once my favorite . You need to show some respect for our President . We the people voted him into office . You won’t let me post . Are you afraid ?why hasn’t this been posted ???? What are you afraid of ? I can’t stand your Fake News. I want to see you post this.... your news is all a bunch of nonsense ........

  • KTRK is a channel you can count on Aug 9, 2017

    By Dana94591
    Ever since I moved to Houston in 2007 I became a believer in the mission of KTRK. They are dependable and consistent. Weather is handled in a professional and competent way with 5 certified meteorologists on rotation and commitment to giving you the best information so you can stay informed. Friendly anchors serve the news in a good way. However, KTRK's true strength is in its reporting staff. These guys in the trenches get the story and they attempt to get it right! God bless them!

  • Great way to keep updated Feb 7, 2020

    By CGFirth
    I just recently added the app to my phone and had the notifications turned on. I really like seeing the news that is happening right now and not having to wait for the news on TV or keep watching online. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because I can’t seem to search for older news stories. If there is a search function, maybe make it more clear in the future updates. Waller Resident

  • Perfect if videos will stop playing Apr 27, 2019

    By Carrie Mullin
    I loved the app until a change that had videos start to play when I’m trying to READ the news. I don’t want to see the videos or have them randomly start playing out loud, so I just have to forego reading the news in public settings or when I need “quiet”. I’ve become accustomed to repeatedly clicking the X to close the video before it starts playing (can’t always catch it in time). It’s a real pain for those of us who are just trying to read the news.

  • Notifications Dec 12, 2018

    By Drew0689
    Let me start this out by saying that I love abc 13. They are my go to news station, but can y’all do something about all of the news alerts that are phased out to the phones? I’ve noticed recently that y’all are sending out items that aren’t really breaking news worthy. I know y’all have to compete with other local news stations, and y’all want to be the first to tell the news, but there has to be something y’all can do. Maybe a filter for push notifications?

  • THE WEB SITE THAT IS AFRAID TO GROW UP Apr 7, 2018

    By Samson's Barber
    As large as Houston is, as diversified, and as cosmopolitan, this App contains very little useful news about the city, the county, or the state. It seems as if this station is "going along to get along". The news stories lack depth and originality. Way too many "fluff stories" hang around way too long taking up space for possible news that has merit and useful information. Where are your investigative reporters? Is the Houston/Harris area county devoid of lawlessness, graft, and any number of other problems? Your web site seems to give that impression. For supposedly being a professional news outlet, in the 4th largest city in the United States, I have found more useful information in "Mom and Pop" county papers and/or web sites. Shame on you channel 13 for being afraid to show differential performance. It may be time for me to move on, relegate your site to the "cloud", and just let it float away.

  • Constantly freezing up and then just disappears! Mar 20, 2020

    By Slfaller
    I’ve been reading the news on this app for a few years now, actually look forward to it every day but the past several months the app just freezes, can’t scroll, can’t do anything and then all of a sudden it just shuts down. I swipe everything away and reopen the app, scroll back to the article I was reading to continue on. A couple articles later, it happens again and this continues on and on. I’m frustrated as hell and I’ve uninstalled the app, reinstalled but it hasn’t made any difference at all. Someone needs to get this figured out, I’m getting closer every day to uninstalling the app for good! I use this app on my iPad and my cell and have this problem on both of my devices. Please fix this!
