Used to be great

Well they have really done it. They took a five star app and turn it into a two star lousy one. All of the important features of the whole App are gone. The new app has little to no organization end it is very hard to find a live stream option. Ads are annoying and repetitive. The greatness of the original ABC 13 app is gone. This app has a really bad design, repetitive continuous advertisements and no lifestream option, all of which the old app offered. I would not waste my time with the new version. I wants five star app is now a two star app and is now being removed from my phone. I am moving to KHOU's app. Not only does their app have a better design it is also more easily navigable than this one. Don't waste your time on this app. It is not worth it. There are better apps out there for getting news.


Agreed it was better before.

The only thing I like better is that video’s pictures doesn’t have the play button covering the middle of it before you play it & It is cleaner looking, larger, and clearer to view which is nice but the pervious version was organized better and had a better layout.

Also I’m not sure but I think I have to register now to view it which is horrible. I can’t view it it says it needs to connect. So idk?

The first video you view everyday shouldn’t have a ad for it. FYI it makes ppl not want to watch videos if they only see one thing worth watching. But the info should be all written below it.

Also I got to say Travis herzog this Monday total got the weeks forecast wrong and was the only weather report that that said what he said. “Pacific cold front?” It’s the coldest week I’ve seen ever for houston. You said no concern for freeze?!?!

I know the weather changes but you won weather man of the year. Step up to David Tillman’s level! ;) where’s Casey also? But I like your delivery Travis. But your lucky cheta got married or I would watch her still. She also got the closer prediction by a mile.

Maybe next time you miss the weather by this much you can help me cover all the plants at my job. Because I thought I was good but it’s colder now than I’ve ever felt here.

Biggest fat blob

Not what it used to be

ABC 13 used to be my favorite news channel, I’ve watched them my whole life. My dad would watch the news when he got home from work and I’d watch too. It’s sad to see such an incredible newscast spin very biased stories. I hate to leave, I just can’t sit and watch this station turn into CNN. The days of getting the straight news with no bias is done. Cover the story, make the observation and don’t lean on one side of the other. Leave your opinions out of it, support the country and stop trying to create division or push liberal media. Many, many, many Americans are no longer trusting news sources, be careful ABC, its a slippery slide down hill. You need to remember ABC that half of the country still supports conservative views. Wish you the best, here I come Fox. And if Fox is doing the same, I’ll stop with them and no longer watch any news. Gain the trust of your viewers, spin the truth. If you don’t know the truth about the story, don’t air it.
