Ratings and Reviews
App often looses connection and plays the next news video without prompting. But what I find distasteful is the lack of respect the news reporters show our President. I understand that abc is connected to the Disney empire, and their blatant bias shows in the stories they write. An example is when they refer to what Trump has said, they’ll use negative worlds like, “rhetoric, hostile, angry and taunting”, which is to my opinion an obvious attempt to paint an unfavorable image. When posting a picture of President Trump they chose to print an unflattering, angry, or just a down right ugly picture. Again, to reflect a negative image. When President Obama was in office, you wouldn’t see this obvious bias reporting done by abc news. Shame on you all
While it is the best news app Fresno has to offer, that isn’t saying much. It is a good source of local news most of the time. But it doesn’t even mention giant world events...you know, things that the entire world has stopped for? There should at least be links to ABC News stories about those. The video auto play feature keeps changing in my settings without me doing anything. And there are a ton of ads scattered throughout stories, and the page skips all over as they load, so the story is unreadable until I wait for several ads to load slowly.
Best Fresno Local News App
I really like this app and I've been using almost daily for at least a year. It's well thought out and aside from the "fake news" sidebars for advertising the content is relevant and timely. Commercials are not overwhelming in number.
The latest update, for me, has a bug where after I watch a clip, the "done" button disappears. So I have to close the app and start again. After the clip ends I'm stuck with no way to go back to the home page.
It's been many months and still have the issue after watching a clip the done button disappears.
All in all I'm really pleased mostly due to the other local news apps I've tried simply do not work.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
