Good for traffic updates but seriously needs work

I use this for traffic updates but otherwise it’s unbearable.

The notifications are worthless. Sometimes it loads your story. Sometimes not. Lots of sports spam and always a video ad.

KIRO wants to load a video ad before each news story regardless of data/WiFi so they don’t care if some people are on capped plans or slow connections.

Then, most of the time, the story you’re clicking on the notification for doesn’t load and can’t be found 🤷‍♀️.

There are way too many sports notifications and no way to turn them off 🤦‍♀️

And people with the app probably don’t care about on air stories and don’t want notifications about stories coming up on air. Keep what is in the app local to the app.

And let me mention again that there are major issues with the video ads and notifications.

Love the content, not the app

Hi KIRO7 - I'm nothing without Michelle, Tracy T. Matthew, Tracey and Nick in the morning! This whole week the KIRO News App on my i-pad, Firestick, AND PrimeTV is not working. It goes through the same 3 commercials then gets stuck. I’ve uninstalled on all of my devices and then reinstalled the app. Still getting stuck on the same commercials. I’ve tweeted to make you aware. I have sent you a DM as well. Still nothing. Help?!?

Good local news contents, terrible video experience

This is the only app I have (I have many dozens, to the amusement of my wife) where I routinely end up with several videos playing at the same time because of unwanted automatic play - this should never happen, and it should not even be possible. I also have to wait for the long ads to finish before I can change the orientation from mouse movie size portrait to full screen landscape, and even that requires a tap instead of just working in response to holding the phone sideways. The video experience destroys the overall experience, sorry.
