Not about local news


Anytime you want to look at anything on the KOAT app you’re overwhelmed with ads. The stories that “look” important are there just to get your attention so you’ll click on an ad or sponsored article. Most of the articles on this app are at most 1 paragraph long, and the “breaking news” is a joke. Immediately after you open the app there are more ads than there is real news. KOAT sold themselves to advertising. They’re just like Facebook, they use your browsing data to create ads. I call this app a “click bait app”; it’s sole purpose is to make money instead of serving the community with honest and important news. KOAT was always my go to for news but they lost me when it became about ads and click bait!

Don’t download if you want to actually read articles.


I hate that I can’t actually read many of the stories. When I click on a headline or story it just gives a sentence or two and sometimes a video link. Every now and then I’m able to read the whole story but not most the time. I love watching the news cast but hate this app because I’m not able to read the stories. Maybe your developers can incorporate the actual story into the app.
