I believe if u upgrade it to iOS 7 features
Love the houston app and the news reporting there's no sugar coating too it, i have 5 ABC Digital apps and all are great....Way ta go, keep up the good work!!!
Very handy Houston news!!
I especially enjoy the alerts. They aren't too frequent and when they do send one, it's always something that interest me. And when I have the time, having the top news stories available is a real plus. I've not used the traffic app but it looks fairly efficient.
Old one crashed too often. Nice look. Lots of news.
Must I watch the same commercial 5 times in a row!
Why can I only see comments on articles on the website. I should be able to read them and write some from the app. Please add
My only gripe is that I can't check the scores for anything.
This is a great app put together well.
The app is awesome, but it keeps sending me notifications from 3 days ago. Please fix!
I like it!
I waited to update this app due to the fact that I'm not always pleased with bugs involved with updates. I've been very pleased with the performance and content with the update, and the greeting upon opening is a nice touch too!
Love it. Easy to use with lots of information.
Don't take away the animated weather map!! That's the only working real time (or close to real time) map!!! Bring it back!!!
Not bad. It takes a little time getting use to, but a nice improvement.
This version is a million times better! Easy to navigate and the weather screens cooperate. Very impressed with the new app
I mostly like the upgrade. Like some of the new links (GMA, Live Well). I really miss the movie times and the lottery lookup though.
I never did customization like others so I really like the new look! I say download it!
Very nice redesign, looks solid on an iPhone 5. So far navigation is responsive and fast. So far all streaming video has worked well. A few issues here or there - traffic map is a little blurry and creates a 'back' button that's unnecessary - but overall a good looking app.
The app is fairly good. If you can overlook the reporters typos and lack of correct grammar. The ads scrolling across the bottom really stink. One has a worm or little snake, which detracts from the news content. Thus the fair app is ruined by the ads. Occasionally the app locks up.
This app does nothing but crash. Way to go Ch 13!!!
Getting news updates every hour on the hour is ok but why do they have to be all negative? Typical news, old school mentality - "if it lies, dies, or cries, it's live at five!"
I can get past the typos and punctuation errors because I'm not a grammar teacher but I cannot get past the crashing! This app closes for no apparent reason at least once a day. I've tried restarting my phone but unfortunately that did not alleviate the problem. I love the news on this app and the breaking news alerts, though.
My biggest complaint with the new app is with the traffic page. It used to show you what the highways looked like. Now, all it shows is a ton of camera icons. You have to zoom or tap the area you think will be driving to see what it looks like. Please fix!
When reading the stories online: Ive noticed some have typos, the words are missing spaces between, and some of the articles cannot be opened because they simply freeze. I've also noticed their are no horoscopes in the "10 things you should know about today" which is now moved to "5 things" it's a great website/app just those few things that may throw people off.
I use to be able to watch but now it crashes on startup. skip it and go to the ch 11 app
I do not like the new App and greatly miss the old one. Harder to navigate, please bring back the old one.
No Nascar, PGA,LPGA and Lotto results. Movie listings?
The app itself is good, but I hate the fact that I have to watch a 15 second commercial for every news video. The crazy thing is it's your own commercial for abc 13. Obviously we know what station you are, you don't have to replay the commercial for every single news video.
App on iPad won't stay open more than 2 seconds then crashes. I'm on a trip to Canada and would like to get Houston news but can't. Very disappointing!
Not fond of the weather section. Can't zoom,zoom, into my area like before. The directional arrows of which way the rain is moving is gone now. That was the BEST feature. DISAPPOINTED!!!
It looks better but doesn't have the customization options the old one did. Also can't find I witness at all.
Old app is much better. Where is the percentage chance for rain?
Nice look clear HD, not as easy to use as the old app. Notification alarm don't work, weather board can't zoom in & out and move around. Much more difficult to use & I'm a phone guy, apps should be easy. Thumbs down, I'm deleting this app
Missing all the extras. Used to be 1st app I opened every morning. Not anymore
I consider this to be a downgrade, not an upgraded app!!!
Can't sort out all sports to get to NFL will quit using this app.
I like how the new app looks but I can't share or tweet anything like I was able to with the old app.
Hate it. Can't Type in cities I want and see there radar. I don't know why they are changing. Ill look for new app!!!
I would like to be able to see weather for other areas. I don't live in Houston & also have family in other areas.
Doesn't have as much info as the older app. Push doesn't work but still does on the old app. This app doesn't show humidity and few points like the old app. Looks like a kid doing a school project built this app! Glad the old app still works! When the old app stops working I'll delete it. I've even stopped watching channel 13.
This app looks nice, but when you try to check the weather, especially the radar, it's not as good as the old app. To see various parts of the city you have to click back and forth to different set areas and can't zoom in or out onto specific locations. Also, it takes forever to reanimate each screen once you change it. The old app worked faster and it was easier to get to the info you wanted.
Your app was the first place I always went to for news and that was for one reason only...the weather radar. Now it is too difficult to find and bring up the radar that shows Harris County, plus the screen size is now too small for it to really be helpful.
Can't find scoreboard section. Old app better. Uninstalled
Will not stay open longer than 5 seconds
Can view live streams, cleaner look, doesn't crash at startup
Nice new look. Lots more bells and whistles. More weather info now and notes from the weather department. Unlike the old app. Never used the movie time option so no biggie. There are apps for that. Once again KTRK shows the rest why they are the best. Good job
Please update for iphone. The weather reports run off the screen. I miss the customization of the old app too.
