My News

I’m a 51 year old man who lives in Kenosha, WI, there is only one cable contractor that allows me to receive both Chicago and Milwaukee news stations. I’ve worked in the Chicago area for thirty years now and I’m soon to retire. I’ve been an avid channel seven guy since I was a teenager. I can remember when some of the ABC personalities came from other stations and I also see some of the old ABC personalities on other stations. ABC7CHICAGO is commuted to having the best, the brightest and the most beautiful people that it can find. There’s nothing like waking up to Tracy, Tanya, Roz and Terrell in the mornings. You also have my all time favorite in Judy Psu in the afternoon and I go to sleep with ABC7CHICAGO at ten. Thank you all for always delivering the news the way we can all receive it from people who seem to really care about Chicago and the surrounding areas.

Ads cause the app to crash

It would be better if ads weren’t crammed into every nanosecond of reports. A weather video won’t play until the ad plays and sometimes ad audio plays over the video. Then the video is cut short for another ad or the entire app crashes as soon as the ad starts. Suggestion: get rid of the ads or fix them so you can skip them like in other video apps it’s not necessary to play a 2 minute ad. Most you tube ads are 5-10 seconds long or are a banner that can be closed once seen. ABC Get with the program and dump long ads. Also Tracy Butlers morning forecast is Useless... ads run longer than her nanosecond weather report. I can look out the window and get more info on the weather. This app is a waste of time for weather or any reports unless you like to watch ads.

Too many links

While I’ve always been a loyal viewer of ABC7CHICAGO your app has way to many links in it. I can’t read even one story without being taken too another story because as I scroll through the article reading I inevitably hit one of the numerous links spread throughout the article. There are times i hit multiple links in just trying to read a four or five paragraph story. It is totally annoying to the point I’m going to delete your app! In addition the fact that the videos play as soon as you open a story is bad. Sometimes I’ll try to catch up on the news while waiting for a meeting to start and all of a sudden the videos will start playing If I want to play the video, I am really capable of hitting play. Another reason to delete the app!!!
