  • Update: format works ! Old: New format doesn't work at all Dec 10, 2017

    By lindamike4
    New update: Re-installed after I heard of a second new update! Yay no more automatic video playing! No more stopping my music and most of all I get to read my need again! Old:I seldom delete apps but I have to I can't have my music turn off everytime I try to read the news in this app. No one can watch all those videos and if we could we wouldn't be turning to this app we would watch the actual news. I'm super disappointed. Most of us use this app at work or class or places where we want to know quickly what is happening. ABC 7 please please change the format !! I want my app back.

    Your website is too filled with auto start ads that restart even after you close the ad...additionaly news videos restart even they have been closed. In addition the ap either falls to load or loads very slowly. To correct the problem of slow loading of the ap requires removal of the ap and the reinstalling of the ap. This is not due to a slow a slow internet.

    I was Born in California and grew up with channel 7 eyewitness news as a teenager I remember watching Christine Lund as one and the news casters and I continue to watch it today even though in 2010 I move to Pocatello Idaho our news is not nearly as professional and lacks giving information of other parts of the world. I watch channel 7 eyewitnesses news every day.

    This would be a great app if only I could stay connected while I am reading a news story. I usually get disconnected at least 5-10 times while reading a news story. If I am inclined to continue reading, I have to get back into the app(as if for the first time,) scroll down (again) to my story, select the story, then scroll down (again)to where I stopped reading (before being disconnected.) I have to repeat this process 5-10 times before I can finish reading a news story. I don’t have this problem while watching a video though. The app is great for keeping updated on breaking news.
  • Local news is great, full screen pop ups are a bummer Jul 12, 2019

    By imitating.jpg
    This app has improved. I can’t remember the last time the app jumped around multiple times per article due to more ads loading. And I think they might have finally fixed the auto play videos on some articles that would play despite my volume switch being set to silent. But the latest full screen ad pop-ups that occur on nearly every article with a delay of about 2 seconds is the latest irritation provided by this app. If it wasn’t the best source for local news in my area, I would stop using it immediately.

    Can’t get videos to work in landscape mode. Seems fine in portrait, but as soon as I turn the device (iPhone 12) the screen goes blank have to back out usually the first page and start over. Also many of the stories on the homepage are stale, as in several hours to, in some cases, over a day old. It is rare that there are any stories less than 1 to 2 hours old. It would be nice if there was a way to sort them by age so that IDon’t have to wade through multiple stories I have already seen.

    I have a love/hate relationship with this app. When I first downloaded it years ago it was perfect - just the right news stories. Now it gives so much clickbait it's really annoying. It also will tell bad news (i.e. Wildfire news and updates CONSTANTLY) but never an actual resolution. Also, sometimes if you click on a push notification it doesn't even take you to the story it pushed and it's hard to find. Really annoying. But I put up with all of that because it also does inform me of news.

  • SOUND IS AWFUL!!! Nov 28, 2020

    By blackandwhitenation
    It’s taken me a year of watching ABC7 to realize why it seems so unprofessional and amateur—the sound is just so bad. 1) The levels bounce around like crazy. I’m constantly adjusting the volume because it’s too quiet, then too loud, etc. Ever heard of a Mixbus compressor? 2) Some news story have NO narration at all. Just the ambient sounds of shots. Who does that? 3) The sound guy clearly smokes too much weed. During one of Newsome’s monologues the volume would drop randomly. Then it would be too loud. Then too quiet. I could hear him trying to find the right level. Then there was a delay on Newsome’s voice! A straight up psychedelic echo on the governor’s voice. I’m sure he was laughing it up but I was trying to listen to what was being said. It’s kind of important. 4) This would be forgivable if it happened once in a while, but it happens on every live stream. I leave it on while I work at home. It’s truly the most annoying thing ever. It is unlike any other news app on Roku and Apple TV—the sound issues make it seem cheap and unprofessional compared to CBS / ABC / NBC news apps.

  • Breaking news but sit through a 60 sec ad 1st Apr 29, 2021

    By KAsiB Cheer
    With every new update I feel like there’s more and more ads!! Proof that money out ways public awareness health and safety Been watching for this new update for days , was so excited when it came and in your description box you said we’ve heard all the concerns and we fixed him and then some... no you didn’t!!! Make us sit through a 60+ second ad before getting the breaking news story which you give for concern of the general public... to everyone it looks like you’re more worried about getting your ad money before notifying public. Ever so many different ways to have ad placements that do not conflict with breaking news news conferences which you guys already know because they’re all over your app they pop up nonstop. Sad and disappointing when needing to have a 60 second ad about nothing before we can get to news that can potential he save lives so grossly disappointing

  • KABC News App Nov 6, 2017

    By J Bruin
    I don't know if I'm expecting too much from this app or not but when it hear something happening (especially in the local LA area) I often want to hear updates or more information. I have found that KABC doesn't post breaking news or updates until the television news is on. I generally now go straight to Google to keep current. 😔 I just realized that I never sent this review so I’m able to downgrade my review. I’m more frustrated than ever with the newest app. I used to be able to check news in that particular area (i.e, Los Angeles, California, National, Weather, etc). Just now I wanted to see something that had happened in Northern California. I found the California section. There are 2 features. One from 22 hours ago and the other from about 3 days ago. If I want current news, I would hope it would be on the app-not old news.
  • What’s new is bad! Nov 15, 2017

    By Eli 777
    Easy navigation and a stunning new display?!? No and NO. Whoever designed this update has clearly never actually read news on the app. The navigation is cumbersome on both iPad and iPhone versions. Gone is the simple left or right swipe to “page” through the news once the first article is selected. On the iPhone you have to keep going back to the main page to select each item while also swiping up to get to the articles you have to keep selecting individually. The iPad version navigation is only slightly better but worse overall because it eliminates the back and forth between articles and the main page but does it by permanently commandeering a large chunk of the left side of the screen for the article list leaving an awkward and narrow reading page.

    App crashes and freezes a lot. Get way too many notifications, even after adjusting settings to only send breaking news alerts. Once you click on one of the notifications it will open the app to blank screen, hang there for a while, then crash. And the topics that are deemed "breaking news" in most cases aren't even news at all. UPDATE: Thanks for telling me to contact the app developer to give them feedback. This is an app review, and I'm giving feedback already, and the app sucks.

LOL also sometimes I just want to look at the cover pic of the video and not watch the video because of the long ad then an anchor person talking for 15-30 more seconds so it'd be nice if they move the play arrow to the bottom corner of the video clip then I can quickly see if the criminal in the video is a friend or not

  • HATE the new Upgrade! Nov 16, 2017

    By moreno_toots
    I am really hoping the news app is put back to how it looked prior to being upgraded. The new upgrade forces individuals to read/scroll one story at a time. This is so annoying. Previously readers were able to scroll and view all stories at once and select which to open and read. Hate the new feature SOO so much I deleted the app from my phone. So now I am forced to obtain my news from multiple news outlets. Such an inconvenience and shame because I really like your news and really liked your easy to maneuver app. I really hope changes are made to going back to how the app was previously

  • Funny Sampson Apr 13, 2019

    By Deb3467
    I like the App 80% of the time. The 20% dislike with the App is about watching the video of the news stories. When you are listening and watching the video, the news anchor is talking and a voice in an ad is talking at the same time. Sometimes the ad is running longer than the news story. It is very distracting. Because of this issue, my only option is to read all of the news stories. This is an update. I am now liking the app 40% of the time. Why? The app keeps closing while scrolling to the next story. I just might have to delete the app for a while. FIX THIS PROBLEM, PLEASE.
  • Decent app with annoyances Jun 16, 2018

    By Howard_O
    I generally like this news application with the exception of looking at the embedded photos. When viewing on my iPhone X, I cannot close the photo due to the “x” for closing the pop up is to the right of the top sensor notch of the display and is not clickable. I have to force close the app to & then relaunch it to get back to the story I was reading. Not a big deal but at that point I just move on to another one. I’ve contacted them via the support a few months ago and did not hear back from them & as of today it still has the same problem in the UI.

    Clicking a notification to view a story presents you with a 15 second wait, for no reason, to view said story. About a third of the time, it loads the wrong story when doing so. This is also a pretty far-left news station, to the point where if a story damages it's political favors, the story isn't covered until it's not news to anyone anymore.

  • Gets worse the longer you have it!!! Jul 29, 2019

    By Ganja grower
    I actually had this news app for a long time. It started off great!! Everything was functional and simple. As time went on, update after update, the app just got horrible. I don’t mind too many ads, but they were getting to be more rampant. The video ads that would pop up after clicking on a news article or video would freeze and cause the actual video I was interested in watching to play back choppy or with delayed Audio. Bottom line is it became very frustrating to use the app and get news. I deleted it about two years ago. Now looking around for another one, my guess is they are all the same by now.

    If you open a story from notifications and want to click another it closes the app.. many bugs.. been waiting years for there to be an update. I cannot believe this company is owned by disney and dont have a few thousands dollars to pay somebody to fix it..
