I love news 9, I watched them on tv since I was a child. If I were rating the tv broadcast it would definitely be 5 stars. The app, not quite so great. I rely on the app for my news each day. I don't stay up late enough to watch the 10 o'clock episode, and during the evening I'm preparing dinner and sitting down at the table with my family to eat. We're busy, like most families are today. So I go to the app to catch up. Here's what I wish I could see in the app. 1. A story that makes sense. Sometimes the stories just don't give all the right details or they are worded so poorly I have to go back and read it a couple of times trying to figure out what's going on. They're are also many spelling errors, which is just silly to me given we have so many tools at our disposal to check spelling and grammar these days. Sometimes the stories start all over in the middle as well, I have no words for that. What I will say is this 1. Proofread, then 2. Have someone who doesn't know the story proofread it again. That's it. Otherwise I love news 9!
Always there when I need them
News 9 is always there when I need them. If it be with the weather, or with the news. I have come to expect when there is bad weather to be able to turn and see David and know right what to do. And with the news you can not get any better than news 9. Whether it be serious or you need someone to lighten it up a little . Again thanks from 4 in the a.m till 10 in the p.m. You make my day ! And sometimes if weather is a little rumble you save my night!!!
A faithful viewer
Obnoxious ads, though
The News 9 app is good for local updates and breaking news (it's all breaking news these days), and Oklahoma media's beloved weather porn in the spring, but I don't read any of the content at the site.
It is inundated with obnoxious ads that seize control of the page. Today I tried to read a story about a fire. Instead, I got a full page pop up advising me I'd won a free app.
I understand revenue is important, but we need not be tacky.
