Works well. Easy to get weather, school closings.
Love the app-hate the log in to comment. I must have tried 20 times to create an account to comment. I just read the news. Forget commenting.
Works fine for what I need, school closings and weather
Great news app
The app itself I enjoy, the slide shows are ridiculous and stupid. It would much better to have things listed rather than waste time flipping through.
Can't stop playing
I use apps for weather since I work outside. There's room for improvement here
A lot slower on pop up alerts of bad traffic and closed roads than the Ch 9 WCPO app. That's the biggest con. You wanna know BEFORE you get caught in it. Often, when starting the app up, it crashes. I have to start it a few times before it stays open. But easy to use and comes in handy. I still like it and regularly use it.
Very good, like alot
Great app. Easy to navigate
I love the up to the minute news alerts
Good app w potential to be great. Love the traffic feature, wish it gave more info and loaded faster. It would be nice to read news in app instead of opening browser.
I get most of my local news from this. This is a good App, I like the way it's laid out.
I get Newsgasms from this app. Fantastic. You should see the dreck they give us in Providence. I miss you OHIO but due to this app I can actually see how messed up Cincinnati is from 877 miles away. Right on!
The streaming video doesn't work all the time. Most of the content is pretty good. Still a few glitches to be worked out.
The app is extremely frustrating as much of the time the opening screen freezes and I can't even get to the news. I tried reloading the app without luck. From reading the other reviews I see that I am not alone with this problem. Please fix it!
Can't even see my girl Sharee on it she is their best newsperson and by far the best in the city and I cannot even see her on this app they should have a virtual Sharee it would be awesome
Bad weather man. Not the most accurate forecast in the city. Too bad!! :(
Too many times lately the app has closed unexpectedly. I also get frustrated with being directed to a web page to read certain articles instead of staying within the app. Another frustration is that the links to other articles from within an article do not work. You have to go to the headline page, and the article you were interested in is often not there.
Every time this ap opens it asks me to rate it. So, while there are some things I like about it, it is still unstable at times, takes 4G to run properly, is a resource hog and takes too long to open- it basically does give me the headlines and the radar map when I ask for it.
I have been using this app for over a year and now with the new update it will not even open !!!
Very good app for news
It's absolutely frustrating to have to open a browser when reading some articles. Why can't it all be in the app?!
This app is up to date. Accurate and precise!
For Cinci news this is THE app!!
Great app. Great information. Easy to navigate!
The only local news apps I use. GREAT JOB,same as TV.
Could be better it just hate the comments that you guys ok to put on the site most time the are racial and wrong made by stupid people I think you do this to stir the pot
It's where I get ninety percent of my news!
Pictures can't be clicked on to view even tho it says u can. Stories with only links to the website version are annoying.
News stories stay posted way too long. Especially insignificant ones. Post most recent news stories at top and so on in descending order. Times and dates when stories are posted would be nice. Proof reading the stories for grammatical errors would be a plus. This app leaves a lot to be desired.
Update: Appears to be fixed. Yea! Thank you!! **************** No app errors & I appreciate 5's local news quality, compared with the other local news apps (who struggle even more with quality.) I agree with other reviewer, many of the breaking news notices are absurd, but all news outlets struggle with this problem. Would be nice if breaking news had a clear legal definition, like, "only use breaking report if the sky is falling." An example of wasteful: NBC (national) has notified of crap like a sports figure has done, "x, y or z." I don't find that to qualify as breaking, so I just disable the notifications feature, and read the news on my own terms.
Who ever is in charge of the alerts should be fired. Meaningless "alerts" at 6am are NOT necessary. App removed. Download WCPO app instead.
Well-organized and informative app! Thanks!
App works again!
I think they fired their editor, I see more errors in the articles than I do in most of my students papers. Also, most of the time you click on a headline to read, they just give you another link to click on and don't bother giving you anything about the headline.
Was great, last update can even open open. Shut phone down & restarted, no help. Has to delete app!
Most recent update has made this app USELESS!! Can't open it and its disappointing because I used it all the time and used to be great :(
Update will not work
App crashes immediately since the update.
Horrible, won't load. Worked great until upgrade. Now it won't even open.
Well like everyone else I am having the same issue! They should have tested it before they released it! Won't even open!!!!!
App was working fine until update. Now it crashes before even opening!
Updated app and now can't get it to open. Have deleted and reinstalled still not working. I do get notifications.
This was one of my favorite apps until the last update. The weather & radar aspect was fantastic. Now it won't even open so I had to delete it.
