I had the pleasure and exciting first trip to the Big Apple when I was only 11 years old and I fell in love. The year was 1955 and over the years I have never lost my love of a little boy that lived in a small coal mining town in Northeastern Pennsylvania. I have been back multiple times but was never able to be there on the most exciting night of the year in Time Square. I was able to do that by taking my 14 year old grandson with
me to see 2015 enter this world. It was so exciting and loved by the both of us, we went back to see 2016 & 2017 come in again in the joyous pens in Time Square. At 77, I had to curtail my visits and the Covid Pandemic caught up to me in May & June and I’m now struggling to make it to see the ball drop one last time from my bed. With tears in my eyes, I will say, “I ❤️ NYC!!!!”

The old version was much better

I don’t want to sound like someone who simply hates change, but the new version is horrible compared to this new one. I’m simply not a fan of the constant scroll or having to set up the news stories I want to see. How about this, if it’s news report it to me. And when you report it to me do so in an impartial format. The reporters have been doing entirely too much reporting of their thoughts and feelings on subject matters, you report it and I’ll make up my own mind as to which side I’ll believe in. It used to be called an editorial when the editor let everyone else know his thoughts, now you think it’s news whether you agree or not with what’s going on in the world, as a reader and viewer let me inform you of something, I DON’T CARE HOW YOU PERSONALLY FEEL ABOUT ANYTHING, please simply report the FACTS, and bring back the old format, and before you write me off at an elderly grouchy person, I’m 43 I work for a living, and I have my own mind in which to make choices. I am downloading the NBC 10 app, looking at the preview in the App Store it looks so much better. Goodbye ABC 6. You have just been replaced, I’ll keep watching the reviews to see if they post this one, I doubt they will since they only post the news that’s slanted their direction.

Loyal to 6ABC but the app is terrible

I’ve been a 6ABC news watcher my entire life. I follow all the socials, I downloaded every version of the app and the weather app when it was available. I’ve had nothing but frustration with all of them. The weather app always crashed. On the news app, I get news alert pop ups on my Home Screen, and when I click on them, it doesn’t take me directly to the story, it takes me to the app Home Screen, and there that headline doesn’t exist!
Lately, I get “happening live” alerts. Like today, Biden discussing the stimulus bill. I click on it, and I have to watch a 30 second ad before the “live” video begins! Then, I try to play the video in “full screen” mode by clicking on the arrows to maximize the video, then turning my phone sideways - and when I do the video crashes!! I start it again and have to watch a 30 second ad AGAIN! There’s no option to skip the ad, the ad finishes and Biden is walking away from the podium.
What’s the point?!? I’d be better off reading the newspaper at this rate.
