The back arrow!!!

It takes forever to get out of a story because the back button is in the upper left corner is very small. On a iPhone 12, you can barely get it to activate. Most of the time I have to close the app completely and go back in. Which is very annoying! Please increase the size of the “touchable” area to go “back” out of a news story. Plus, it would be nice if you had a feedback option in the app to report issues.

No live TV

I downloaded this app thinking there would be an option to watch a live stream of ABC7 but could not find that option. There are features to watch clips though. The website’s live player works poorly on a mobile device, so my only option right now is either my computer at home through my cable provider’s website, or on the physical TV.

Please consider allowing XFinity to stream ABC7 to mobile devices even when they are not connected to their home WiFi. Thank you.

No sound with iPhone

I’m not sure why but all the videos play without sound. The rest of the app is useful in providing new local stories every 24 hours.
