Love it when it works


This app is my buddy when I am getting ready for work, but it is the most frustrating app ever. It is constantly stopping on its constantly have to keep hitting the play button. I counted at least 30 times one morning. It will also shut down on its own and of course you have to endure the commercials every time you start back up. If there was another Cleveland station I would watch, I would, just so I wouldn’t have to start my day so annoyed. Please fix this!!!!

Too many alerts


Fox 8 is my favorite local news station, but I get too many notifications. Too many “breaking news” badges and notifications. I would like to see local news, but not if it’s going to clog up my screen with every update that happens around the entire city.

Would be nice if we could personalize it beyond just sports and breaking news. Maybe there could be options like local sports, events, happenings, weather, and traffic....

App closes without prompting


I love the Fox News app but for the past few weeks, the app will close and send me back to my home screen. It is very frustrating to have to scroll through previously read information, pick up where I left off only to have it happen again a few minutes later.
