Love KCRA but app needs fixing!

It is just frustrating and sad that whenever I go to read a news report, the sentences cut off above an advertisement displayed. They never continue, and I’m left without information. This happens again and again...and again. Also whenever a Twitter quote/post is within the content of the report, while scrolling, the text will flicker and disappear. It jumps around. I mostly ignore the ads but I do concur with other reviewers. I do understand the need for the ads for revenue but there is a point where it is too much and distracts from the news report. Also sometimes, the video accompanying the report has nothing to do with the report at all; there’s no correlation. Now I’ve been watching KCRA for years, and have been using their app for a few years. I will continue to use and support KCRA but some fixes in the app are very much needed. Thank you for all you do!

Long time user

I have had the KCRA App for a long time, I deleted it for about 3 months because I felt the content was mostly sensationalized pieces that had nothing to do with our local area. I added the app back recently, i’m still disappointed, some of the content has gotten better, however, the feature of pop up ads while reading an article has become beyond annoying. I know advertising is what makes the app free, I have no problem watching an advertisement before a video plays (it is annoying however I understand it makes the app free). Yet when just reading an article an advertisement pops up and blocks the entire screen and when it’s over I touch the X icon in the upper corner and the ad goes away for a few moments giving time to read just a few lines of the article and then the advertisement pops back up again. I changed settings for the app. I’ve deleted it and added it again and when reading the articles the pop-up ad comes back again and again and again and again. I can’t even read a full article. I’m done with this app.

News alerts should be newsworthy

I live in Lake County, and PAY additional money each month to follow channel 3 news which is, in my opinion, the best news coverage. Having said that, when I receive a news alert, I have to wait sometimes up to 5 minutes to open the alert and read what it is. Also, I wait that long and then read something that really is not all that “news worthy”. Please fix with your next update the alert delay because sometimes the information is important and should be read right away.
