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.

Appreciate knowing the news at home while away

I am a snowbird in the winter. My family and friends are there with you during this crisis . I am grateful that I can watch live news feeds as well as getting news alerts sent to my devices. Thank you so much for all you do and helping me and others to stay in the loop with the news in Western Washington.

Thank you for covering the Pierce County Public Heath Department news conference. It was well covered & professionally presented by the PIerce County Health Department panel. Thanks for covering South Sound so well. Kudos to ALL involved... I appreciate in your regular coverage as well & that you are reporting facts. I think it is important that we don’t react with fear ...especially of the unknown! Good job, KIRO crew!!😊👏😊👏
