Customer Reviews

  • Awesome app!

    by Aukaman

    This is a great news application!

  • Good app, but crashes

    by kmyers621

    Like the app, but crashes when playing video.

  • Great app !

    by Mailman04

    After struggling with 21 news app & even with their so-called new update, i couldn' t take any more. 27 news app is in one word "fantabulous". So many articles on so many subjects, easy to read & so to the point. Main headline is great. Can' say much more without repeating myself. As my daughter would say "good job"!

  • Modern phenomenal

    by Gladdddddddsssssssss

    Who ever isn't used to new format, oh well. That's the new concise format for a lot of apps that have a lot of info on there. They should just go grab the newspaper if they don't like it. I love it. Thank you for all of the options. And oh watch out one of like a trillion people is going to your competitor, who cares just go !!

  • New look and feel...

    by mrclymer

    The ABC 27 news app gives better coverage to news then the WGAL news app, IMHO. And that's why I use it. But I do not like this new update as it appears they are trying to fit too much on the screen... Personally, I preferred the old look, but the content still appears to be top notch. Revise the look and sorting of stories, and I'll do the same to my rating.

  • Change for the worse

    by Chad Nesbit

    I love the ABC 27 news app, but this latest version now crashes on me. Not to sure I like the new format either.

  • Category Selection

    by I have a lot of hate

    Hoped to be able to select a category and scroll down within it, instead of scrolling across in a smaller space of the screen.

  • Best yet

    by patrick traini

    Love all the new options ! All at a scroll. No more crashing. Love all the weather options that I never saw before. Thank you. Keep up the hard work.

  • More Al

    by Brother Ravishing

    App is not bad. But how about including more Al Gnoza coverage?? Al's presence almost offsets us having to deal with Gregg Mace. Almost....

  • Nice iPad app!

    by pleomorphed

    This is probably the best local news station app for the iPad! Really nice user interface and weather coverage. Keep up the great work!

  • Awesome

    by Attilahun

    This app is fantastic and I love Alicia Richards!!

  • Awesome

    by Awdbdhf

    It nice and handy to have any where

  • Good Local App

    by Eyemind79

    This is rather impressive for a local news app. Design is clean and easy to use. Love the weather feature. I must agree with the previous review that a lot of the traffic cam pictures don't often load, but still a very handy app!

  • Nice

    by Amy FPA

    Nice to have local info. Good local news, national as well. It has the local weather blurb. One caution: It's not good for iPod touch, because it doesn't retain any of the info once you're out of range of wi-fi. For that, you'll want something like Byline, NY Times, or Read It Later.

  • Hot for Brett!!!!

    by still dreamin

    Would give 5 stars if the app opened with picture of Brett Thackara.

  • Very disappointed

    by Jimp3rd

    I figured this would be a great app as I always watch 27 news on tv. I was disappointed to find that it is not updated regularly. Sometimes the same headlines are on there for days. Come on guys get your act together. You are better than that.

  • Nice !

    by Turkmon18

    Thanks! looking forward to using. Would give 4 stars if radar was a little better. Get this one folks!

  • Best one

    by Shorty8008

    The best central PA news app.

  • About time

    by Harrisburg Pa,

    I waited a long time for this app ... Glad to see Abc27 finally came out with it .. Only downfall is the traffic and video don't load ...

  • Thanks

    by Knightgal66

    Great app so far, the only concern at this point is viewing the traffic cams, most of the time they don't load properly. But thanks for making this app, will keep me updated even if I'm away from home!

  • Big fat fail

    by Redwhite&bluebeard

    Local news is by phone number only. No way to change it that I can see. I've had the same number for years and have moved many times since then.

  • Old version better

    by JR455761

    Old version was better. Most other news apps have a better format. I like this news better than others, but after the change I can't stand using it anymore.

  • New version ok

    by Skinikesgm

    Should be able to click on category and view titles. Horizontal view is not user friendly.

  • Displeased with format change

    by Runner5891

    Really don't like the horizontal format. Can't easily read story titles anymore and having to scroll vertically to find categories is time consuming. Thanks for making a perfectly useful app worthless. I'll be deleting this one and checking out your competition for a local news app.

  • No way to contact developer

    by Murphy7295

    I just upgraded my iPad to iOS6 and now your app won't open. Tried deleting app and reinstalling which got it to open once. But when I tried to open it again several hours later it, again, it will not open. I could not find any contact info for developer to notify them of this problem. Can't give a better rating if it won't open and I'm unable to notify anyone of problem.

  • Shuts down

    by Flugels417

    Nice having local news right away but is frequently late. Spelling and grammar errors almost too atrocious at times to read an article. Not to mention the app shuts down at least once, sometimes twice during use. Local weather is my favorite part of app.

  • News not recent

    by Bx79

    In reference to app: News is behind, not up to date. Fix has way more although I watch yours. Crashes at least twice every use. Cannot share stories always says "error with sharing "

  • WHP is better

    by out n about

    I Like the WHP app better, live interactive radar, push alert notifications and more. This app is limited and I get black screens al the time.

  • So-so

    by Ebubman

    While we love and watch abc27 tv news, the app presents news which we already get from multiple other apps. I had really hoped the traffic would be helpful but it works poorly. Will try the app again in the future when it offers new and working functionality.
