    I select one news item, I get a Toyota ad. Select another news item, I get the exact same Toyota ad. Select another news item, yep..same Toyota ad. Over and over. I gave up and removed it. I am ok with ads, but it got insane
  • No live TV Feb 28, 2019

    By Dash D.
    I downloaded this app thinking there would be an option to watch a live stream of ABC7 but could not find that option. There are features to watch clips though. The website’s live player works poorly on a mobile device, so my only option right now is either my computer at home through my cable provider’s website, or on the physical TV. Please consider allowing XFinity to stream ABC7 to mobile devices even when they are not connected to their home WiFi. Thank you.

  • Pretty lame Aug 14, 2019

    As someone else said, you get a notification and it doesn’t take you to the story. I guess they think we’re staring st our phones waiting for the notifications. This station has gotten more lame in recent months in their reporting and it shows in what they decide to alert one to in the notifications. It would be nice if you could choose what you want to be alerted to instead of notifications about things that aren’t urgent and you could see on the news that night.

  • Notifications do not link to actual story Jun 20, 2019

    By Tqb73
    Why send me a notification and want to me read more only for it not to link to the actual story. Taking me to the main splash page of the app and forcing me to search for the story is not helpful.

    This app could us some updating. I read a number of local and national news sites, but this is the only one that only allows portrait mode. I prefer landscape, but maybe I’m in the minority.

  • Holy PUSH NOTIFICATIONS! ☹️☹️ May 16, 2018

    By Ja_87_FFX
    UX is nice and clean and the weather function is great. I turned push notifications on for alerts regarding weather conditions but there are SO MANY and mostly news stories I’m not interested in. The app should allow users to select what categories they’d like to receive notifications from. I read under notifications that they promise not to send “too many” and I laughed out loud. I received an average of 2/hr yesterday! Update to allow customization and this definitely becomes a 4 Star app!

    Audio is a great feature to have for videos. Unfortunately this app is missing just that. 🤷🏻‍♂️

  • The Worst News App in the Entire App Store Mar 17, 2016

    By Biscayne54
    Channel 7 offers interesting stories that 4 and 9 neglect, but the app is so pathetically constructed the articles cannot be read as the words at the end of each line run off the page, leaving the reader trying to guess what the missing words are (I was hoping the updated version would correct this). Preceding every video, there is an Easterns Motor commercial which freezes repeatedly, taking a couple of minutes before the video can be viewed. In most cases, it's just not worth the necessary patience. In the typed text, an Easterns Motor logo floats over the words, forcing one to move the page up and down in order to be able to read around it. I don't know if it's a lack of programming aptitude or a lack of integrity that causes this app to be so very poor - what I am certain of, is that it is lacking tremendously.
