Ratings and Reviews
KTRK is a channel you can count on
Ever since I moved to Houston in 2007 I became a believer in the mission of KTRK. They are dependable and consistent. Weather is handled in a professional and competent way with 5 certified meteorologists on rotation and commitment to giving you the best information so you can stay informed. Friendly anchors serve the news in a good way. However, KTRK's true strength is in its reporting staff. These guys in the trenches get the story and they attempt to get it right! God bless them!
Does not work like it use to...
Well, we would have given 5 stars but the latest update does not let us watch the news through the app for the last 3 days. Don't know if they forgot to turn on live news switch or whatever switch it is, but it is time to watch the news it does not come on. It just shows ABC 13 on the screen, also sometimes during the live news there is sometimes no sound, then it goes off air for about 5 minutes missing part of the news. There is still some bugs and glitches for the app, please fix.
Update: this app does not work unless you buy a new iPad. Now we cannot watch live news because the app has a new updated software. We have a iPad 2 and error message keep saying please connect to Internet, which we have and still not working. This should be able to use on all version of iPad, not a lot of people now days like to buy new technology when it is not broken yet. This how old folk save money.
Used to be great
Well they have really done it. They took a five star app and turn it into a two star lousy one. All of the important features of the whole App are gone. The new app has little to no organization end it is very hard to find a live stream option. Ads are annoying and repetitive. The greatness of the original ABC 13 app is gone. This app has a really bad design, repetitive continuous advertisements and no lifestream option, all of which the old app offered. I would not waste my time with the new version. I wants five star app is now a two star app and is now being removed from my phone. I am moving to KHOU's app. Not only does their app have a better design it is also more easily navigable than this one. Don't waste your time on this app. It is not worth it. There are better apps out there for getting news.
