Almost all good

It’s almost all good. Some of the recent improvements, like the handling of pictures, are great.

The “listen live” feature needs a lot of improvement. It constantly cuts in & out. It seems there is more time where it isn’t working than is. I’m usually connected to a WiFi network when listening but I’ve tried turning the WiFi off & it doesn’t seem to make a difference.


Notification hell

It works well enough, I really wish they included the ability to filter what type of push notifications you get. They send 15 million Seahawks notifications and I couldn't care any less about the team or the NFL. To be able to turn off sports or Seahawks notifications would be great. I've disabled all notifications as a result.

Developer Response

Hi -
Sorry about the notifications. I will share your feedback with the news room team. We will also be researching a longer term strategy for push notification subscription by section where you could choose the top level subjects that you want to recieve notices for. Thanks, Jeff

Doesn’t recognize iPad mini orientation

I have my iPad mini set in a stand in landscape orientation, and I have to set it to portrait to read and watch live. Live will move to landscape when I change, but i have to move it first. Other apps will already recognize the orientation. Also my biggest negative with KOMO and this app is their repeated annoying komo ad. Why can’t they fill ad space with something else or air the normal ads as on tv. Anyway, going to use other network apps.

Developer Response

Hi -
Thanks for taking the time to post your review and for pointing out the issues with orientation and ads. I will work with the developers on the landscape issue and with the ad team on the house ads. Thanks again, Jeff
