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
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.
Love the information it gives... except
ABC 30 is my absolute favorite news station. I love getting the notifications telling me about what is going on in my community. The only thing is, I use the voice over accessibility feature on the iPhone and when I click the full story button at the end of some articles, my screen goes blank. This makes me have to restart the app and open it back up, then go back to the story and open it again. My only reason for a 1 star is because I would really really appreciate this being fixed!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
