Ratings and Reviews
Live News Streaming Taken Away
No live streaming from this Fox17 app any more? Why did you think it was a grand idea to remove such a useful function in a news app. The local CBS and NBC news apps are now getting 100% of my attention in the mornings while I’m getting ready for work. Very, very disappointed. Maybe you should look at your ratings and actually do something to reverse the results you’ve created.
Bad job on the last update!
As someone who goes to work later in the mornings, I loved having the option to stream the local news after 7 am. After your last update, this has disappeared. At least NewsChannel 5’s App works until 7, then they update with viable traffic alerts afterward. Deleting app and moving on since this was the only reason I had the Fox 17 App.
Too many notifications
While I like the app, you get way too many notifications (5-20 per day) with no way to adjust to only breaking news or the type of notifications you want. Most of the notifications are teasers to try to get you to watch the news. I would not recommend this app. I’m deleting mine.
