Customer Reviews

  • Best Morning wake up!

    by Gammon8tor

    Hearing Leslie first thing in the morning makes the rest of my day as pleasant as her wake up message!

  • Yes to the app, no to the alarm clock

    by lanakai23

    App is almost perfect. I open this app up every morning to start my day here in SoCal! However, I still use the alarm clock on my iPhone because I don't like having to keep and app "open" for the alarm clock to be used. If I can close the app and the alarm would still go off I would give 5 stars!

  • No ads please!

    by Lefty216

    Nice app except for the banner at bottom. Can you please remove that. Just want the news not ads and it would be a 5 star app. Thanks

  • Not what it should be yet.

    by Alexofviamarina

    I thought that that would be like news alarm, where it would tell me good morning, tell me the weather, and tell me the news headlines. That's not what happens here. I'm going back to news alarm. It may be a computer voice, but at least I'm not blinded by my phone first thing.

  • Great app.

    by Thenutboy

    Love it!

  • Alarm

    by Hendrik Rouwenhorst

    My wife loves Big Garth

  • Almost perfect

    by Jake<3 ABC

    I love everything about this app. You can personalize the background shot (choose from three), you can get current weather updates and breaking news headlines and I LOVE the alarm feature! The only critique I have is that you shouldn't have to leave the app open and running to get the alarm to go off. The update should include more background image choices and a way to close out the app and still trust that the alarm with go off. Other than that, great app ABC!!!

  • Love it !!!

    by davisfamily7

  • Beautiful app!

    by wyattwd

    The design is great. Please fix the ABC7 news app. It's so old looking!

  • Great app this should be what the news app looks like

    by Fhbfhdhcgbd

    The ABC 7 news app should some how be phased out and integrated in to this one .this app is cool but the news app looks so 2007

  • Best news application ever!!

    by raul moreno

    Love this app, easy to use and everything at you fingertips, awesome!!!

  • Fun App!

    by kactuskooler

    I love this app. I am an ABC7 fan and it's fun to hear my favorite anchors make funny alarm sounds. I also love the fact that I get my weather and traffic, even the live cams! That's a plus. I only wish they would offer a paid version so I don't have to see the ads. Maybe they will offer that in a future updated version. Still, this app deserves more than five stars! Thank you ABC!

  • Very helpful app

  • Awesome

    by GoRockets47

    Garth is great!

  • Inaccurate

    by Semperfit3806

    This app is very inaccurate even when refreshed...for example it's said it was raining and 88 degrees I look myself and it's a clear blazing hot 107.. Weather is always inaccurate and sometimes traffic.

  • Hmmmm?????

    by GLGBNAF69

    I changed my rating to a 2 from 5 star this thing needs updates and the dumb adds again!! And small letters to touch when you want to see traffic or pictures and just freezes up!!! Cool wallpaper and mc Donald's??? Come on you can do better??? And just like the other app same old stories day by day

  • Cluttered

    by dave phd

    More than half of the screen is cluttered with news headlines that cannot be removed and a banner ad at the bottom. Other alarm apps look better. There are many alternative news apps specialized for news including abc7's own Weather is already available on the standard app. Megadoppler can be accessed on the abc7 news site, and alternative weather apps are as good or better. Traffic is similarly accessible on standard and other apps. The only unique feature are the TV personalities as alarms, which is not a selling point for me. Oddly, it is not worth it even at free.

  • ABC Alarm App

    by Cookiecat62
