Annoying App Well Behind The Curve


I use this app to check the weather and local news stories. It's good for reading any story in BCS. But don't be looking to watch videos because it's one of the most frustrating experiences ever. Halfway through the annoying ad to watch the morning weather video and you tilt you phone to watch wide screen (like all other apps) and the whole app reloads, and you have to start the same ad over again! Overall it's a buggy app that needs some attention. Compared to other news/weather apps this one is behind the curve!

Traffic notifications


I got this app primarily for its traffic notifications feature. My coworkers always seemed to be well informed about when to avoid traffic jams on 6. When they told me about this app I got it. I am happy with the notifications and get to work on time by avoiding 6 when I need to.
I don’t use the other aspects of the app as often, but when I do they seem to work well.

Won’t open on iPhone X

former online user

Poor app design...being close to Texas a&m you would expect better....I agree with poor performance in the other reviews, but with my new iPhone X the app will not open at all....sent KBTX an email and after a few days got a note back saying the would look into, but it’s been two months and app still doesn’t work..... don’t think they care about online users (or ad revenue from their advertisers) as long as people watch their television channel ....this app just made me switch to someone else
