  • Best Fresno Local News App Jul 7, 2017

    By Jawnski
    I really like this app and I've been using almost daily for at least a year. It's well thought out and aside from the "fake news" sidebars for advertising the content is relevant and timely. Commercials are not overwhelming in number. The latest update, for me, has a bug where after I watch a clip, the "done" button disappears. So I have to close the app and start again. After the clip ends I'm stuck with no way to go back to the home page. It's been many months and still have the issue after watching a clip the done button disappears. All in all I'm really pleased mostly due to the other local news apps I've tried simply do not work.

    It's a good app but I always have to refresh the app for it to work.
  • Great for local news, but crashes. Aug 1, 2019

    ABC 30 app is the best app for local news. I read it daily and also check the weather which always has the most accurate forecast. I’ve had the app for years and am overall very happy with it, however there are some bugs that need fixing. There are only problems when watching the video clips. The app often crashes in the middle of the video which is SUPER annoying. I’d say 2 to 3 videos a day will crash the entire app. Also, the next video will automatically play. This has happened even after I close the app. My phone will be locked and the video continues to play. Please fix your video issues!

  • Love the app, just one annoying problem. Nov 18, 2019

    By Fakabish
    Great news app and neat features to stay up to date locally and nationally. One thing that needs to be fixed is when I’m scrolling through a story, the authors will attach links to parts of a text that will transfer you to a specific story they’re describing by tapping on it. These words are highlighted in blue. Sometimes, while trying to swipe through an article, I accidentally tap on these words and the app transfers me to a whole different story. It’s nerve racking because I have to return to the previous story and carefully scroll my way down to where I left off.

    Not sure why the weather portion of the app does not match the weather forecast on ABC30. You would think that whoever is managing them would be on the same page. The app weather at times is 10 degrees cooler than what the station is calling for.

    I used to love this app but now im deleting it due to excessive skipping. I cant even watch a whole news clip because it skips and I miss half of whats being said. Very frustrating! Now I have to find a different app to get my local news. Fix the skipping issues and Ill reinstall. Til then, goodbye ABC😞
  • Disappointed Oct 30, 2019

    By abcisbias
    App often looses connection and plays the next news video without prompting. But what I find distasteful is the lack of respect the news reporters show our President. I understand that abc is connected to the Disney empire, and their blatant bias shows in the stories they write. An example is when they refer to what Trump has said, they’ll use negative worlds like, “rhetoric, hostile, angry and taunting”, which is to my opinion an obvious attempt to paint an unfavorable image. When posting a picture of President Trump they chose to print an unflattering, angry, or just a down right ugly picture. Again, to reflect a negative image. When President Obama was in office, you wouldn’t see this obvious bias reporting done by abc news. Shame on you all

  • Disappointing Apr 16, 2019

    By 48jj48
    While it is the best news app Fresno has to offer, that isn’t saying much. It is a good source of local news most of the time. But it doesn’t even mention giant world events...you know, things that the entire world has stopped for? There should at least be links to ABC News stories about those. The video auto play feature keeps changing in my settings without me doing anything. And there are a ton of ads scattered throughout stories, and the page skips all over as they load, so the story is unreadable until I wait for several ads to load slowly.
  • Speculation 30 Oct 7, 2020

    By Doctordangle
    Due to Covid my business has had to stay closed since March. ABC30 makes all sorts of speculations about when my, or other counties will open. But they don’t know its all a guess! This is not news. People are counting on being able to reopen for their livelihoods and abc30 loves to give false information before it even happens. Just what we all need, more let downs. Thanks a bunch for writing up what your and the health directors opinions are. Meaningless! YOU can’t say when my county will be red. Things have changed daily with all of this and frankly I’m sick of it. My health director thought we would open this week.... we didn’t. Stop spreading false hopes

    Very frustrating. Slow loads to notification links. Excessive advertising. Repeats notifications. Uninstalled.
  • Love the information it gives... except Jul 12, 2017

    By Shaelarheanne
    ABC 30 is my absolute favorite news station. I love getting the notifications telling me about what is going on in my community. The only thing is, I use the voice over accessibility feature on the iPhone and when I click the full story button at the end of some articles, my screen goes blank. This makes me have to restart the app and open it back up, then go back to the story and open it again. My only reason for a 1 star is because I would really really appreciate this being fixed!
  • Nov 6, 2020

    By Eugene Alvarez
    Great app when it comes to notifications unlike other news apps. However, this is a brand new phone that I have up-to-date high memory and yet your app slows down the phone. When I press on the notification to read the article it doesn't come up right away it has a blank page like it's taking its time to appear. It also locks up all my other apps and phone. Sometimes I have to clear it and then reopen it because it will take a while for it to generate a page. Maybe it's time for an app survey.
  • Constant typos and grammatical errors. Feb 6, 2018

    By MonikaL
    Stories are poorly written, with many typos and errors, both factual and grammatical. There is no "report a typo" option like most news apps have. Emails pointing out the errors are ignored. Briefly there was a twitter feed pointing out the errors on the ABC30 twitter stream, but instead of fixing the errors, they blocked that feed. ABC30 - we make many mistakes and we don't care! In the app, there is a form to make suggestions. If you fill the entire form out and submit it, it fails with an error message. The app, like the news reporting, is half assed and poorly done.

    I have had ABC's 30 app for several years..and have thoroughly enjoyed it. lately however I have noticed an abundance of ads. I cannot scroll the news articles without watching an ad. This is sad. A company that should be founded on a basis of truth, honesty and openness..has revealed, that just like most businesses..its not about the consumer but about profit. Will be deleting and seeking out knowledge and news on my own. Peace out Abc.

  • Good App Mar 3, 2020

    By Magicmancris
    This is a really good app to get news and weather here in the valley. One request, can you guys please limit the amount of notifications you guys send out as “breaking news”? Or add a setting to what news alerts to receive? Example: “person ran over/shot/stabbed in Fresno” this literally happens like every day. Unfortunately so often it becomes repetitive and almost like spam. Also add a tab for live news please

  • Frustrating at times Oct 24, 2019

    By AniAlySha
    Generally I like the ABC 30 app. I like being able to access local news while I travel and being able to stream the news wherever I happen to be. However, it’s frustrating how limited choosing what news you receive is. Also, you can’t access information about the news team, and it’s difficult to find news stories that you may have missed during the news broadcast.

    Frustrating, everything I click on a notification it takes forever to load if it even loads. If I really want to read the article notification I have to go to the app and find it in the stories. Even then it takes a while to load. If I've already opened a notificagion from the news I can open a new one until I close the app first too.

    like it but a BIG hangup. latley when I try to go through and read a news article. everytime there is a video an ad pops up and starts playing even when I try to close it because I just want to READ the article not watch it. other than that u love this app. please fix it thank you

    By the time the commercial is 15 secs in, I have read the article or the newscast below and never get to watch the actual newscast and see the video of what is happening in my town. Just think you can reduce the unnecessary advertisment and just get to the article I clicked on.
  • New layout is terrible Jan 6, 2018

    By EazyEandthe3
    I liked the old layout. The new layout is terrible. You can only see two stories at a time and have to keep swiping up to find something that interests you. The old layout was much better because you could see many more stories and find something that interests you. Now it’s like I’m being spoon fed...terrible.

    By F'n Norm
    The app does not auto refresh on iPhone you have to kill the app to get current conditions every time. I use mostly for weather the old ABC30 app did auto refresh and most importantly in Los Banos it showed the wind speed and predicted wind speed by hour this is very useful in planning outdoor activities or choirs or if wind is really going to pick up you don't want your boat on San Luis reservoir. This is a huge downgrade from the old app!! Can I just get the old app back!! Please put the predicted wind speeds and fix the auto refresh problem

    6/1/19 Updated: Will not load articles when I tap on a new news notification! Use to be better! This is a great app to get local news except that I use to be able to see the whole headline in the notification preview but the most recent update only shows only a short section of the headline in the notification preview. Some articles I like to read the whole article but others it was nice to just see the headline. Bring back the whole headline in the notification preview and it could be 5 stars!
  • Least favorite news app Jan 3, 2018

    By Kraig57
    Having to scroll thru every story is a pain. I prefer to see headlines and a small pic of multiple stories giving me the option of which articles to access. The new app makes me read each article headline scrolling thru all articles before the option to choose to read an article. ABC30 news app went from one of my favorites to my least favorite and last news app I view to examine news. Not even the local news generates any appeal. I prefer other news apps first. 😳
