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.

I love your app… Not only locally, but because I also work with a fire agency for California, I am alerted with all the local news which really helps me know what’s going on daily! Im out in the field for a month and sometimes month and half at a time! I really appreciate all that KCRA has done to keep me Inform with the local news. Thanks for keeping me informed !!!! love your staff , love the information and appreciate your honest news and Mark Finan is Especially important to me because of the fire weather and the humidity… Thats very important for the job that I do thank you! The one thing that I would like to see is a live stream I don’t want to see just the news I want to see the whole lifestream like they do with FOX40Vivian Graham. Lincoln Ca.
I like the increased amount of stories, and the old app would often not display pictures or play videos, but this app has gone overboard on video. First, you have to scroll through large video still to find the news stories. That is slow. Then you have to wait and watch a thirty second commercial before each and every video. 30 seconds of ad before every story is ridiculous. Also, they have stories categorized by local communities. I wish they had a category for regional news. You would think a news site that bills itself as serving Northern California would have thought of that. If they don't tweak a few things I will not use the app much. Too few news stories as well, and some are stale old news. To keep a story that says "fire breaks out" for weeks is misleading.
