I have always loved the great coverage that KRON4 has to offer. But lately I am irritated by the commercials that pop up on the top of the screen. I don’t mind that they are there and I understand the business purpose of the existence. My issue is the automatic volume that comes blaring on. I read the news in the morning and cannot see more about the subject because I can’t control the sound or level until I can hit the off button ASAP. I have woken up children and spouse due to this unasked for interruptions. I find it so irritating that I don’t sang to read the articles any more.

I Love KRON4

I so appreciate getting local news and at a very reasonable subscription price. However I find it difficult to negotiate my way around the app. I’ll get a news flag on my front screen and it does not open to that article directly & it is not necessarily intuitive where to look for it. Also, I’m not sure if it’s the app or my phone but the videos time out so I don’t use them. Regardless, thank you KronOn!

No option to opt OUT of videos. And freezes!

This is the most difficult news app I’ve ever used. Not only does it CONSTANTLY freeze in middle of articles where I have to shut down app and try again, I REALLY feel I should be able to simply read an article WITHOUT being subject to the accompanying video. The video says “tap to watch”, but that’s not true. Videos start automatically each and every time I start reading. THUS, my family is awoken and I have to quickly punch my phone volume to mute it. Not ok to project noise without my consent. But that’s what this app does. So frustrating with KRON4. I emailed your news station with plea for assistance on how to opt out of auto video, but never heard back. Is it only me that has this issue?
