News Nut

Race buddy rip off!$!&:!

I like the articles, there well thought out and presented in a clear concise manner. All three TV stations in the treasure Valley have the same problem on their app. They are very slow to update and especially on the weekends they only throw in a few new stories and continue to run stories from a week ago. The same goes for anything about regional news, sports. I have app for all three stations, just waiting for one of them to become my go to station.

Doesn't scroll


Once the screen loads it is impossible to scroll down through the stories because the titles and the ads become overlapped in such a way that neither is viewable. I can usually only access the story that comes up first once the screen loads. The rest become jumbled.
And spell checking before publishing your stories would be a good idea as there are frequent spelling and grammatical errors.

Developer Response

We sincerely apologize. We discovered this issue with a previous version of the KIVI app on iPhones when a user had both "zoom" enabled and their font size set to the largest setting.   We have since released an updated version of the app that we believe corrected this issue. Would you be willing to uninstall and reinstall the app and see if that takes care of the problem that you're having? If you're still having issues, please go to "settings" within your app and then select "submit feedback" and let us know what's happening. One of our digital support specialist will be happy to assist you.

Please let us know and we apologize for the inconvenience.

Great App!


For local news this is my go-to app. Without naming it, the other local news app is never updated. This one is always updated and great breaking news.
