    Great app and works well. Up to date news and coverage of everything in the city. Including Breaking news and alerts. Very useful, helpful and informative.

    Same experience as Sharon Camwell posted on the 7/8/20 below. When I delete and reinstall the app it works once. The next time I open the app it closes straight away. I am using a Samsung Galaxy tab A running Android 10. Please fix as online version is very awkward to use. Update appeared in Play Store today and after installing is working correctly again. Clearly insufficient testing of updates is been carried out before release. Pleased that the issue has been resolved.

    Looks like others are having a similar problem since the last update, as in the app constantly keeps crashing on start up. Deleting all the app data via settings or re-installing the app gets it working once only, it then keeps crashing until you repeat the above. Seeing apologetic replies to other comments from the developer saying there's a fix, but still not available from Play Store!! Update 21:20; 5.0.4 successfully installed, app now working properly.

    App keeps stopping. If it was updated last Friday, there is still no update on Google Play and it is now Tuesday afternoon. Update. The problem now seems to have been resolved. I deleted the old one and reinstalled.

    Good for traffic updates and local news. Would be better if coventry live involves more sport news. It would also be good if coventry live would provide dates and times of events happening in the city. Overall a very good app. Keep up the good work!!

    As an Old Coventrian now living in Cornwall, I find 'Coventry Live' an excellent way of keeping contact with what is going on back in the City. I am especially interested in the development of the tragedy that is the Sky Blues at The Ricoh Arena horror story. Overall 'Coventry Live ' is a good App put together very well.

    I keep getting notifications of new content but the app doesn't update so I can't read them.

    Terrible app. Recycled national news with very little local news content. The level of reporting is terrible. Alot of stories are reports of facebook or twitter threads.

    Update - August 2020. For some reason this app keeps stopping as soon as it is launched. Uninstalling and reinstalling makes no difference. Okay for mainly (but not always) local news. Main issue is that there are many occasions where there is initial coverage of a story, but then no further updates. Also often sensationalises relatively trivial stories.

    Unfortunately it's a very poor service. Many times there's spelling or grammatical errors. then there's the clickbait headlines. You'll see a headline such as "6ft of snow on the way" then you read the article and at the end it'll say, "only in the Scottish highlands" and Coventrys' weather will actually be, "6°C and sunny." It is actually the best option out there for local news and sport, however it gives the impression it's all written by a work experience employee sat at a desk miles away.

    Doesn't work all the time. I have to keep uninstalling and the installing again. Despite being told problems was being looked in to. I'm still having problems months later. Poor service... A year on and I'm still having same problem .

    You say the app has the latest version 5.0.4 and you ask me to update to that version. But the app info states it was updated to version 5.0.3 on the 19 August not 5.0.4 as you stated. So is that why the app keeps closing down, I have uninstalled and installed it that many times it still loads then goes of. It is probably you don't know what version you loaded. That's why it crashes.

    Having used for years did the latest update and rubbish it now keeps crashong. Have applied all phone's updates as well to latest version as other people have done and now it constantly keeps crashing and won't open. Poorly thought out Have now uninstalled it and won't use until it is fixed or reverted back to previous version

    It is not always local news and often has stories that are recycled and rehashed by its journalists to tempt you into believing it is a new story. Too many adverts also. The CET used to be an excellent newspaper. Now it is hardly worth reading.

    I agree with all other commentators. The problems with the new app are still not resolved, it either doesn't open or opens and crashes. When will it be repaired?

    Was working fine, now opens for a second, and closes immediately, leaving annoying report messages, keep getting notifications of local news events, cant open app to read the story.
