I never leave reviews, but....

I am so disappointed by this new “upgraded” version of the KARE11 news app. I really enjoyed the old app and used it every day, but I might need to look elsewhere now. The format looks beautiful, but it is not user friendly anymore. I cannot watch a news story without watching an ad. On the previous iteration you only had to view an ad once and then you could watch multiple current news segments. Now after each story you have an ad in between and then you are launched into an item that is days to weeks old!

@Kunac Thank you for your feedback regarding the news story and ads. We will pass this information along to our product team for consideration.

Ok but could be better

Slow to start up ... splashes a pretty “good morning” or “good afternoon” greeting across while it starts, but we all know it’s just masking a slow startup. The wait is just long enough to still be annoying.

Occasionally crashes or scrolls glitchily and jumps all over the place. C’mon guys ... news apps are just controlled-environment browsers. How hard can this be to display a story with some pics and-or video? Maybe not give your advertisers the ability to write their own JavaScript ads that tweak out the app?

Finally, this suffers from my main beef with most news apps: disabling the ability to zoom in on pictures. I remember vividly the day I first used a smartphone, and the seeming miracle of being able to use two fingers to zoom in on a web page. That was the magic. The web was only barely useable on web-capable phones prior to that. Now we have pages and apps that are optimized for mobile use, which we didn’t have then, but we STILL NEED to be able to zoom pics, especially stuff like infographics. There’s no technical reason apps can’t allow this like most web pages do in a generic browser. Let phones do what they’re supposed to be able to do, and stop stealing the magic.

Still 3 stars because I can basically get the news, but as a news app it is mediocre at best.

Kare 11

We watch Kare11 exclusively… we’ve tried watching other News on other stations but have been very disappointed with them. Even when we are visiting our grown children in Waukesha or Neenah… the quality of the reporting or weather has a lot to be desired! KARE 11 is the ultimate in programs, whether it’s the Saturday Morning Program, weather, news, sports, and all the personal…Belinda…Laura…Bobby…Dave…Randy…Reggie…Mace…Jana…Rena…Julie…Ben…and all the other reporters… new & old!!!
Fantastic coverage of News…Weather & Sports!!!
