Good app too have.

Like the title says “ Good app too have “ like the traffic notifications and how each one is constantly updated till it’s cleared up. However when letting the public know too take another route/way be more specific name a route/way some folks sure could use the extra heads up. The weather notification is good as well especially living up here on the mountain. I’ve had this app for a few years now and never had any problems. I don’t anticipate having any issues in the future. Other than the pop up adds.

23 ABC News alerts and the app

I love the ABC23 alerts coming to my phone, especially since I work in Bakersfield now. I live in the neighboring mountain community and as the crime rate up there is much slower and we are much safer, I worry working down here. ABC 23 gives me peace of mind with their alerts, as I can go right into my app and check it so I know where not to be. Thank you ABC 23!

is it just me, or? ... ,

App crashes/force closes

I’ve been having trouble with the app for the past few weeks. I’ll start to read a story and the screen goes white (no text). I’ll close the app, go back into the same story, am able to read a few sentences, and it goes to a white screen again. Very frustrating. I’ve stared using other local news apps more frequently, but do check from time to time to see if the issue has been fixed, but to no avail. I’m disappointed bc I really did like this app for news info, weather, road reports, etc.
