  • Ads

    by Derek Limoseth

    I really wish their was an option to pay for the app and remove ads. Other than that it's a great app!

    Love the new look but you guys SERIOUSLY need to bring back the push notifications, if you can send email alerts why not push notifications?

  • Much better!

    by The Holy Fonz

    They have added much needed improvements to the app. I was gonna write that they removed a lot of nice weather feature from the old app, but I see ABC12 made a dedicated weather app now. Make sensor! Awesome!

  • Much Better Now

    by Keeg177

    They added much needed improvements to this app. I might actually start using it now that it looks nicer and is easier to use!

  • Awesome!

    by AlexBogue

    I'm originally from Owosso and I'm glad to keep updated with news.

  • Could be MUCH better

    by Tstpilot

    The drop down menu has two sections...Top News and Local News that duplicate stories. All this does is waste screen space on drop down menu. The video section also lacks relevant news's mostly sports & Bloombers news videos. See WNEM channel 5 for how a proper layout is supposed to look. It's a much better app.

  • Great!

    by SpanishLearner8

    This app is great! I use it all the time and it's nice to know what's going on around home while you're out of town or don't have time to watch the news at home. Also, the app works great and the news reports show up on the app as soon as they've been reported on tv! Great and I highly recommend this app!

  • What happened?

    by Long time abc 11 viewer

    When I first dl'd this app, I loved it! Local news, weather, & closings at my finger tips!! I start my day with a dose of ABC 12! But now ads are appearing and make the screen "jump" while I am navigating - very frustrating!!! I am seriously considering removing this app!

  • Close school

    by Pindropjay

    I like but I do not like school I like when snow come then we do not have no school but if have abc 12 news we would not know if we have school or not

  • Love the app!

    by It's meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    Great app to get your local news!

  • Decent

    by Tsurashi

    Good for getting locals news and weather on the go! App can be laggy at times (unresponsive to links, etc, being clicked) and the 7 day forcast doesn't appear to be getting updated regularly, but still definitely handy.

  • Great local app

    by Local 12 girl

    Thx for the local app! I've been waiting for one. Love all the different radars, would like an update with extended forecast. Also would like the percentage of precip.

  • Removing functionality doesn't make the app better.

    by -naznewsgirl-

    I used the site daily to check weather - local radar, national radar, hourly forecasts. When they took down the site I transitioned to the app. It wasn't as easy to use as the site, it was slower, but it worked okay. This latest update is useless for me, however. They changed the radar completely and removed zooming functionality so you only get the pictures they allow you. No more seeing which way a storm is tracking, which cities/counties are affected. They removed hourly forecast. Everything that made me recommend ABC 12's weather services is gone. I'll be looking for another, more user friendly app now.

  • Not good

    by 50waystoloveacrafter

    I switched to local Flint/ Sag/ Bay City : WNEM and it has top news and local. Weather also. for Michiganganders!

  • Severe weather

    by Bradberr

    It would be nice to be able to live stream when there is severe weather. That way if you could not watch a TV there was still access to what is happening.

  • Really

    by Billlybibjoe

    This is so out of date. Please don't get this app, it is a waste of time and energy that you could spend on doing something else.

  • Abc12 news

    by Butch209

    This app should not be called "news". It is not updated to reflect current events in all areas. In consumer "news" articles are posted from almost 15 months ago. In addition, a feature called The Crim has articles posted from almost 9 months ago. Come on ABC 12 get up to date.

  • Advertisement overlay!!!

    by Mike&Carrie

    I used to love love love this ap, especially the weather. However, shortly after I got it, the ads started popping up over parts I want to look at; like the weather maps. Also, stories are not updated anymore like they used to be. Suggestion: if you are looking for local news download mlive. It is updated often. If you want local weather download NOAA. This app isn't worth all the ads you have to deal with :(

  • so so

    by Color me gone

    This app needs daily updates. This app needs to have a version for the pad. There are other methods of getting the news if these aren't addressed.

  • App is NEVER Updated!!

    by Kfanning

    This app is behind on all stories! It is now September 19, 2011, and one of the "Top Stories" is about Labor Day!!! Please fix!! Do Not download unless you are a fan of Old News Stories!!!

  • Used to love it...

    by pentaclewitch112

    This app started out great when I originally got it. I started and ended my days reading it. But as time has gone on it's like they're not updating it daily. Stories that passed weeks ago will still be displayed and I'm missing out on what's going on around me. If it were being updated regularly then I'd gladly give it a 5 star rating.
