What's New in Version 4.3.4100
This update includes optimizations for iOS 11 plus bug fixes and enhancements.
I have every tv station app on my iPad and iPhone. KTVU is the first app I go to for breaking news whether I am in town or traveling out of state. It shows all up to date news in an easy scroll.
The only problem I experience fairly regularly is it often goes to a live broadcast without any action on my part. That's not good when it's late at night and my wife is asleep.
I hope KTVU reads this and does a bug fix.
Good start but needs work
I like the app but a lot times you get an alert, click on it and it opens in Safari where it sits loading forever. If you close out cause you think your hung up then try to go back there's no way to get back to the alert. I'd wish the app handled everything without opening Safari and that you had a way to see your alerts again in case there was a hiccup. Also the add that's at the bottom and expands out couple of minutes is annoying as hell.
Repetitive music & promo
The app it's self works fine. I don't have alerts push to me. Though when listening/viewing in the morning the constant repetitive music jingle and promos nonstop of the news broadcasters is getting seriously irritating. My seven-year-old mentioned it and asked for it to stop.
