    The App needs some tweaking, the app. Continuously is Booting me out to my home page on my phone, I have ran The diagnostics on my phone and it is NOT my phone it IS the app. Also commercials and/or “Ads” get cut off and sent to blue screen during live news casts and if watching “Breaking news” (which is live) The App. Makes you watch an Ad Mean While there is SERIOUS breaking News!!! That OF ALL THINGS NEEFS TO BE FIXED!! ASAP!! What if something even More serious the COVID-19 Comes three or God forbid a war coming our way or a Bomb from Russia and I’m watching the news ONLY TO GET AN AD BEFORE SEEING THE LIVE NEWS!!

    I just love this app and how it gives you breaking news. I also love how well it works with the Apple Watch, but it’s still not optimized for the iPhone X even though the screen shots suggest otherwise. I’ve tried updating the app, deleting the app, restarting my phone, but it just doesn’t take advantage of the screen size of the iPhone X. Other than that I love this app and would suggest it to anyone who is looking for a great news app to keep you in the know.

    Hello, I love your mobile app except for the “time-out” it automatically does while reading stories. It is not my iPhone that causes this because it happens on my iPad too, as well as, to friends of mine. When this happens I have to reopen the app and start all over again and wait for the stories to reload again. This even happens while I’m in the middle of reading a story. This is very annoying. Can you fix this to make the site even more enjoyable? I have reported this before and no one replied. I find that not being nice either. A reply feedback would have been courteous. Thank you.

    I’m a big fan of ABC News and Eyewitness News in New York. And the app is a great way to keep up with the stories when I don’t have time to watch the news But, when you open the story and start to read, the app just jumps to the bottom of the story for no reason. And you have to scroll back up to the top to actually start reading. Not just random - every time. More often than not, I just click out of the story I tried reporting this on the Feedback form, but that page doesn’t work. I’ve seen a few other reviews were people were having this problem as well. Please fix this - it’s really annoying

    The ABC7NY news app is my #1 source for breaking news in New York City. Minutes after something happens, I get an alert on my phone with relevant details and information that helps me navigate my day. I love and recommend this app for every New Yorker, tourist and long term visitor. In the city that never sleeps, you need a vehicle that keeps you in the fold, and this app rates #1, hands down!

    Usually works well but sometimes it closes or stops playing. Also, I miss the live broadcast sometimes when it starts at 5pm or 6pm. It would be great to start it over from beginning when I get the time ( maybe 7pm or later).

  • Needs updating. Too many fake news links. Oct 31, 2017

    By thegimp71
    It’s a decent local news app, but it needs to be updated and it’s got too many advertising links dressed up as fake news stories. The app needs to be formatted for different size phones. The fonts look huge on my iPhone 6 Plus and there’s no way to adjust the font size. The notifications are also annoying and should be controllable within the app, perhaps to allow for different kinds of alerts you may want or don’t want (e.g. all news, local news, weather, sports, traffic, politics). The fake news links to advertising are a real disappointment. You’d think a news app, especially ABC, would want to maintain the integrity of their news outlet and not list a bunch of fake news links after their stories under “You might also be interested in...” That’s just lame.

  • Too Many Advertisements Aug 26, 2017

    By Vlad788
    While an outstanding app. I've grown up with ABC 7 and I will always be loyal to Eyewitness News and WABC as I've been watching the program for 20 years. I understand the necessity to use advertisements to make the app profitable, but to have a 30-60 second advertisement play prior to every video playing is a bit ludicrous. I could understand having it after every 4-5 videos but every video to have to watch a 30-60 second ad in a world like New York where things move quickly. Sometimes we just want to watch the content uninterrupted you know? That's my only gripe! Offer a paid version of these apps without the advertisements. It's an even bigger slap to the face when the advertisement is longer than the actual video itself.. 😞.

    Most of us follow the news, i want your app to tell me (in text, not video) whats the latest. Most reports tell you like its the 1st time you heard about this issue and give you all the background as to why and what....NO, please just the latest update ! Creat an option; whole story or latest update.
  • App is repetitive and not monitored Jan 13, 2020

    By Ridaz4christ
    This app seems to be only good for watching live, but when you replay videos there is no sequence to the videos. They repeat at times sometimes even showing the same video three times in a row. The other news apps have a sequence to their videos and not one of them repeats. Why can’t this app do that. Also when you want to watch the news, just show the news when we replay videos. We don’t need to see a review on beauty spots, massages and facials! There should be an option to skip through if these and the sort!

  • Traffic no longer works since last update Apr 6, 2018

    By Ace316789
    The traffic page no longer shows anything, just a blank page. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app to no avail. I can get to the traffic source thru a webpage but nothing thru the app shows. Time for a another update that works this time. Shoddy project management on your developers. And as always too many ads, I know all you companies are greedy but it just aggravates people and turns them away from using your products. I make it a point to never ever purchase a product that is advertised to me.

I don’t want to miss out on what’s going on in my neighborhood. I’m just so happy that I can get channel 7 on my phone. It makes me feel like I’m still in Jersey. Thank you

  • What’s good versus what’s absurd Jan 31, 2020

    By Woody117
    I respect ‘ Channel 7 on your side ‘ for reporting consumer abuse And illegal companies taking money and failing to do thee work. There coverage of heroic rescues involving heroes from children to adults is wonderful too. Unfortunately your channel covers 3 hours of reporting with previews of what’s coming up: first: without a time frame or presenting it 2nd: previews of the weather within 5 minutes of coming on the air! each hour! 3rd and what’s most prevalent to us(consumers who watch the network). I want news coverage of up to the minute news; your words not mine! The weather should be towards the end of your top news that we want to hear and see. We are not all dumb people who just care about the blah blah reporting. I hope you see this and doesn’t get lost. I’ll be watching for now. Sincerely yours, Edward Woods
