Ratings and Reviews
I think overall the app is okay, nothing special or overwhelmingly awesome. I ave several issues with news reports. There are often times when I receive notification and then launch the story and the story will be blank.
Also in terms of live television cast if I want to watch those love speeches or broadcast when I open the app those too are not able to be viewed.
In terms of accuracy I do find that when the stories are finally updated they are pretty accurate and do not need many modifications. But it would be a great idea to post of positive stories as well as the breaking news. Things that average citizens do in the community to help, or testing scores improvements, this that also boost up the community.
Content, great! App...
The content on KSDK news is great; I’d give it five stars. However, the app has room for improvement. Most significantly, the rate that this app drains the battery on my iPhone is astounding. I could play a short video, then close the video screen, and notice that I’ve just lost 15% of my battery power in a very short period of time. On other news apps, like the AP’s, I don’t seem to have that problem when I play videos or simply use the app.
Fix the battery drain issue, and I’ll likely change my rating to four or five stars.
This used to be my go to app for local news. But over the last couple of months, the advertising interruptions have become so ridiculous and intrusive that I can not even finish reading a story without out pop up ads every few seconds. I’ve given up and will be deleting. My husband also deleted this app. I should be able to read more than 10 words at a time without being bombarded with advertisements. It’s sad you’ve sold out. I used to really enjoy your top stories coverage and felt you truly wanted to cover the news. No longer the case.
