Ratings and Reviews
Where ever we go we keep an eye on hometown news using our APP. Keep it simple. It will be fun to be able to see and listen to news stories, but not everyones batteries can handle too much media. There should always also be text, too.
Edited Dec 22:
Foolish me, I decided to watch two UNL dorms come down on the KETV app. I sat through two commercials, Melissa Fry comes on, then they interrupt her mid sentence to run four more. When the fifth came on, I could see it was too late, though I tried to find another website to watch the implosion. Stupid me. I’m deleting this app for good.
I’ve rated this app a 2 Star, now I’m downgrading it to just 1. I was just looking at the KETV page to email the webmaster, when a popup appeared asking me to rate this, which I am glad to do.
This page is awful. The print is so small, it’s unreadable to me. I’ve tried to blow it up so I can read it, but it’s not capable of doing so. Sometimes I’d rather read a story rather than watching, but there is no way I can do so.
I’ll get a notification that there is a news conference to watch, but nothing happens except for a few commercials. I understand I have to sit through them, but then the conference won’t some on, it says something about how there is nothing to watch.
Channel 7 is my preferred channel to watch, but there is no way I can read the news via this app. I choose to read another channel’s web page, where I can blow up the text large enough to read. On the other hand, other reviewers are mentioning the typos, so it mIght be a good thing I can’t read it.
It would be nice if when I clicked on a notification or alert that the app actually took me to that specific story instead of the home page. I end up spending more time trying to find the story in the app than anything else. I usually end up closing the app and then google the story because I have better luck that way. What’s the point of getting a notification or an alert if you can’t click it and see what you are being notified for?
