  • Best news app

    by Rick19700

    Love it!!! Thanks for the hard work

  • Overall ok

    by Wombatmatty

    Breaking alerts rarely take me the the story. I have to close the app and restart in order to click on some stories. Some of them for some reason just won't open. Much better than wral! There seem to be at least one or two major grammatical and / or spelling mistakes in each article I read lately.

  • Please fix!

    by sundogcomm

    I mostly like this app a lot, but I have one major complaint. I like getting breaking news alerts, but when I click on them as they come in, they do not take me to that story. In fact, I have yet to be able to find the breaking story in the app when I get an alert. This is very frustrating.

  • Wow!!

    Finally! I luv it!!

  • Pretty good

    by The man who never was

    I used the WRAL app for years (back when it was the only choice) but the obnoxiously flashing blinking jiggling ads finally drove me away. I can get the same news here, and although there are still ads, at least they are respectfully and professionally presented. (That is, they don't flash/blink/wiggle trying to get your attention.) This newer app is also an improvement over ABC 11's old app, and looks a lot better. I just wish there were a way to prioritize alerts. (I don't need to be alerted every time there's an apartment fire in the city.)

  • Works fine

    by Jojommmm

    Works perfect for me, smooth. Maybe your device is crap b/c this app is perfect.

  • Great App!

    by EHungate

    ABC11 continues to be the market leader in news. This app is sleek and very useful!

  • Where's the push notifications?

    by Skyline97

    I am not receiving notifications for breaking news. Please fix this so that I get the same news alerts as on the iPhone/iPod Touch.

  • Great app!

    by NC Taxman

    Very clean and well set up. Categories are organized well and intuitive. I like the social feature and the home screen layout. Time will tell, but I think I found my favorite local news app.

  • Not impressed

    by Thelma Smith

    Every time I try to get on this app. It crashes on my iPad getting ready to delete it

  • Poor app

    by dst794

    I used this app for a month and deleted it because they don't update the news regularly and sometimes only a portion of the text is displayed. In addition, I don't there is much diversity in the news they report. I'm sure that there are more interesting things to report on and I found it strange that although crimes are committed by a variety of people you only seem to see mugshots for minorities. Crimes committed by non-minorities may or may not have a mugshot. You'll more likely see other general icons( a police car, handcuffs, etc) instead of a mugshot. Seemed sorta discriminatory to me. Especially once I read the same stories on another local news app and noticed how different they were.

  • Crashes

    by UNCJC

    This app crashes on me. Uninstalling. Trying another local news app.

  • I just erased this because of an intrusive alarm

    by Bert S.

    You woke me at 2AM last night with an amber alert alarm about a child who, by the way, was found perfectly safe. I, asleep in my bed, could have done nothing anyway to help. I can find no way to disable these middle of the night alarms without turning off my phone. Do Not Disturb did mot prevent it either. I have erased you so it will not happen again.

  • New abc 11 app not to my liking....

    by Bealhouse4

    Ugh...maybe you need to review!

  • Inconsistent app

    by NC in Rdu

    Worked great for the first few days, now it just spins. I deleted and reinstalled with same results.

  • Raleigh centric, left leaning

    by SQRL!!

    Does not show WX for my area. Loading my city fails to load any data. No local news only the typical left-leaning triangle tripe. WX maps don't size w/pinching. Basically a worthless APP that is much worse than Weather Channel product.

  • Terrible App

    by Barney2131

    The worst App I have ever downloaded. App rarely loads just sits at the loading screen and constantly spins.
