Ratings and Reviews
Terrible Terrible Terrible!!!!
I loved the KATV app for years. When they recently changed it, I couldn't find ANYTHING I wanted to see. The "video" section is completely gone. The news is all jumbled up. I did find a "feedback" button and gave them my opinion three different times. After three weeks of waiting for improvements, I found nothing had changed. I finally have deleted the app from my phone and found a different local news station to follow. Sorry KATV, but you lost another loyal fan!! If it would go back to the way it was before, I would immediately put it back on my phone. Local news needs to be current and it needs to be separated from national news. Sports should be the same. And, PLEASE, put the videos back! I loved being able to go back and find video clips of segments I had missed or wanted someone else to see.
Messed up a good app
I've waited three revisions to comment on this revised app. The new look is okay, but they refuse to make a landscape option available. Why would you make an app for the iPad in portrait only?
The next problem is that the news items are jumbled on the screen senselessly. There are week old stories mixed in with new ones. How hard is it to divide the stories into national, state and local headers? How hard is it to display chronologically?
This one gets deleted. I gave it three chances, but I don't have time for developers who don't understand their platforms.
Not an improvement
This app was completely usable and easy to navigate in. Someone decided it needed changed. This version lumps all the former news categories together in one long string. If you have no interest in a category like sports or politics you still have to scroll by those articles. Even worse, if you're looking for a story that you know is local news you get to scroll endlessly through articles from all categories until you find, or don't find, what you're looking for. I found it more palatable to simply delete the app.
