    News articles are good and I get notifications for each story. It keeps me up on local and national news pretty Well. But the clickbait advertising in the app is annoying and makes it hard to respect them as a valid news source.

  2. D. S.-avatar

    From the layout, it is often difficult to discern what is news and what might be done fluff story or even advertisement. Please reorganize to our all of the news in one place. Then this would be a 5-star app

  3. Cherilyn Emerson-avatar

    Cherilyn Emerson


    I love KING 5. It's what I watched growing up. The app is great. Tried a different news outlets app and when I clicked on the notifications, it never took me to the article. It just brought up the first page I saw when installed. THIS app is flawless so far. 👍

  4. Joseph Churchill-avatar

    Joseph Churchill


    Awesome app! The Live feed is a great feature! I'm a bachelor and don't pay for cable and this app helps me get my local news, plus they've been around my whole thirty year Seattlite-life.

  5. Susan McBain-avatar

    Way too many ads ! Try too scroll down ( 1 paragraph) and oops another ad takes you away .try to go back have to try and find what you were reading and it only get worse more ads than contencryt

  6. Ryan Bradley-avatar

    Love having news at my fingertips, but hate that I have to keep the app up in order to keep videos playing. Would be great if you could make it overlay like YouTube/Netflix so that you can watch while doing other things.

  7. Laurel-avatar

    I found some of the ads in this app to be pretty trashy, exploiting and promoting objectification of women in an era when we should be far more aware of how that mindset affects equality in our society, setting us up for sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace and in politics. Unless they get rid of this archaic habit of allowing objectifying ads, I'm using Kiro 7.

  8. Chuck Stevens-avatar

    Not liking the current version of the app. Too sluggish, WAY too many ads, too difficult to navigate. The old version was far better.

  9. LK Araujo-avatar

    Very good Seattle area coverage. Would like to see more local news from all around western Washington.

  10. Mary Nichols-avatar

    Always find the latest news, weather, plus local interest.

  11. John Eugene Justbe-avatar

    John Eugene Justbe


    I'm just kinda kicking back, wanting to reach out and see what's up with the world I feel so shut off from. This app is awesome! The App loads while a cool photo distracts you from chaos, then said hi! You say Hey... Smiling cause you made contact, even if it's just an apps welcome screen. Then an array of news items roll out before you in a calm manner, none feels like they really have to be clicked NOW! I don't like panic inducing drama, like some other news apps. Enjoy!

  12. S Pheth-avatar

    Good posts, informative, and easy to navigate

  13. Amy McCaffree-avatar

    No glitches, easy to navigate, good video playback.

  14. diana babb-avatar

    Great when I miss the news on my TV or need to be kept updated on a story.

  15. Harv Hecker-avatar

    Nice to be able to keep up with what's going on at home when in Tacoma..if I could have only one channel..KING 5... 👍👍👍👍👍🤠

  16. Blues Howler-avatar

    No news is good news. Yes the platform is fine but the news is always bad. Not king 5's reports.

  17. Bruce Bergman-avatar

    Easier to find articles than when I first signed up for it

  18. Robert Schaudt-avatar

    I want news, weather and traffic front and center. It take too many step to get to any of those.

  19. Julia Peterson-avatar

    The app doesn't update daily and there's too many ads

  20. Bryan Uhler-avatar

    Not too many alerts and not too few

  21. Lenard Lurks-avatar

    Great with updated 👍 news, weather and more!!!

  22. Dallas Jay-avatar

    Great app. Easy to use and keeps me up to date.

  23. Ralph beaty jr-avatar

    Awesome Local news 24/7 no matter where or when it's there

  24. Marianne Anderson-avatar

    Marianne Anderson


    I enjoy the app on my phone but disappointed I can't use it on my firestick for viewing local news as I can for KIRO.

  25. Rick Naten-avatar

    Enjoy the app for timely Puget Sound centric news and national news recaps.

  26. Sharon Kinzel-avatar

    This news app is very well organized!

  27. Willie Butsch-avatar

    It's decent but needs a better layout

  28. Lamandalynne Ahearn Promise-avatar

    Lamandalynne Ahearn Promise


    The ads are unnerving.

  29. melek twelve-avatar

    A great local news app. The best one IMO.

  30. James Vincent-avatar

    Constant ads That look like new stories suck

  31. Mitch Perry-avatar

    I ready liked the older version of this app but now it is too cluttered and hard to navigate. As I try to scroll down it is constantly moving back up, on it's own, as object finish to load. I have used it for years but am stopping and going to a different channels app that has a better design.

  32. Sidney Chounla-avatar

    Very easy to get news update.

  33. Dr24rae-avatar

    Very helpful news always depend on it

  34. Arnold Wilson-avatar

    After they updated the app the ease of use sucks. The different sections are gone and jumbled up in a way that makes it very user unfriendly. Just another big corporation fixing things that are not broke and making them worse. Will never download another app like this ever again.

  35. Brandon Fleckenstein-avatar

    Brandon Fleckenstein


    The bad things about the app is the font in the 5day forecast is tiny and unreadable and if I click on a notification it just reopens the app but doesn't show the notified topic.

  36. Darren Pryke-avatar

    Forced advert that is potentially longer than the news item for every news item, same advert, over and over, sent me crazy... Uninstalling.

  37. Stacey Troutman-avatar

    Stacey Troutman


    It great to have KING 5 anytime. I don't miss the news anymore.

  38. Michael V-avatar

    Great news app with streaming video.

  39. R totheJ-avatar

    Would be more but too many advertisements

  40. derek atwood-avatar

    I was just forced to watch a 30 second advertisement before being able to watch a 19 second news clip. IF YOU LOVE ADVERTISEMENTS THIS APP IS FOR YOU, IF NOT I WOULD AVOID IT.

  41. chloe H-avatar

    This app is nice. I don't really have time in the morning to sit down watch the news so this app is really handy. The only thing is that the videos on my phone are laggy

  42. C. Marie Scott-avatar

    Like the news but site is a little slow and ad uploads cause issues while scrolling.

  43. R Paguio-avatar

    Everytime I scroll up an ad shows up. I cannot focus on my reading.

  44. Christopher Shaw-avatar

    Christopher Shaw


    It is a nice app it doesn't have long load times like other news apps.

  45. Kara Selifis-avatar

    Love it! I love the live newsfeed.

  46. Brandon Darnell-avatar

    Brandon Darnell


    Better than q13, in my opinion. More news, less chat.

  47. Madison Davis-avatar

    Keeps you updated and it's free !

  48. Frank Fitzpatrick-avatar

    Frank Fitzpatrick


    Network I watch 95% of the time is KING 5. Because of staff and how they relay the news and present it. Out of all broadcasts, like KING 5 the best!

  49. Jim Roberts-avatar

    One of the best no-nonsense apps on the internet

  50. YourOpinionMeansNothing, SoShutUp-avatar

    YourOpinionMeansNothing, SoShutUp


    Good news app. I just wish it was a channel app so I coukd watch all the broadcasts.

  51. Michael Speer-avatar

    Great information, local information great reporters. Your paint color is on your door on your door jamb it'll have

  52. Ashlea Cason-avatar

    Love to know what's going on in the world so I love this app tells me things and keeps me in the loop as to what is going on

  53. Don McKenzie-avatar

    Good source of local news and weather.

  54. Brian Mathiason-avatar

    Brian Mathiason


    Keeps me informed and doesnt crash.

  55. L.C. Hill-avatar

    News is usually available when I needed it

  56. Helen Humphrey-avatar

    Very up to date. Easy to use.

  57. Jeff Saint Aubyn-avatar

    Jeff Saint Aubyn


    Good coverage of state news

  58. Lorilei Pinley-avatar

    King 5 is the best news in the Pacific Northwest! This app is awesome!

  59. Gaoyu Xiao-avatar

    The content is OK, but although I have disabled all notifications in my settings, there are still notifications popping up now and then, which is a bit annoying. Had to uninstall it.

  60. Tierra Lockwood-avatar

    Tierra Lockwood


    Nice to see local news on the go I like the notifications are a nice perk.

  61. Ron Phillips-avatar

    I was using this app to look at the Doppler radar, but it was constantly frustratingly slow. I'm now using Q13's app. Radar comes up considerably faster.

  62. J O-avatar

    This app made my phone freeze up and when I scrolled up or down it return to the top. Turned off all notifications and still got them all day long.

  63. jt simmons-avatar

    I installed the app so I might be able to see the weather forecast in a better format. But as usual, there's no provision for us hicks outside of Seattle to personalize the information we want. The weather in Snohomish county is not the same as Seattle and it would be convenient to be able to change reporting parameters to reflect that. Most folks have a location feature on their phone these days and a lot of apps use that to personalize the information they provide. Now, I admit I might not be seeing a feature that is right in front of me, but it seems that an option in the setting dropdown would be a good thing. I am uninstalling this app because it does not fill my need and I can use the memory space for something that does.

  64. Clint Fisher-avatar

    Really gone down hill! Intrusive adds! No longer intuitive, hard to navigate! Instant Uninstall

  65. Code-Tyler Hello-avatar

    Code-Tyler Hello


    There is only one Complaint here on my end it does what it's supposed to do I just wish that the videos would play a lot smoother and the ads on these videos are crazy I just don't understand how the ads play perfectly fine, but the video your looking to play loads slow ... and lags, and I have the best network Xfinity and Verizon, so I'm just not understanding, maybe an update would do this app some justice, but it's not a deal breaker, for the most part I can just read the article. good app.

  66. Renee Benedict-avatar

    This was a great app until recently. Now too many ads! The weather used to be fast & easy to read, too, but now you have to have a magnifying glass to read the daily & 5 day forecast, or slog through the video (and it's ads). They should have left the app alone. No improvements here.

  67. Heidi Barack-avatar

    Listen to your reviewers! This new app is slow and cumbersome--not user friendly. I loved how the old app was easy to navigate. The landing page should have quick links to weather and traffic. It was my go to app before the new look... But, now I must uninstall. PLEASE add an easy access link to landing page for weather and traffic.

  68. MagicalKingdom-avatar

    All the ads make my phone freeze up with every use. Just use the website.

  69. David Jensen-avatar

    This used to be my favorite Puget Sound news app, but now they have not only GREATLY increased ad content, but they have also integrated the ads into the news roll to try and trick you into clicking on them. Shame on you, King 5. Also, the ads now include the somewhat raunchy "worst wedding pictures" and "scandalous Walmart shoppers" type of trash complete with teaser photos of scantily clad women. Double shame on you, King 5! Looking for a replacement app as soon as I post this.

  70. Mike Williams-avatar

    Very professional at reporting. I watch from Globe Arizona.

  71. Trevor Turner-avatar

    Useless! Takes forever to open and DOES NOT HAVE TRAFFIC. If it does, it's hidden away as if a five year old was allowed to do their UX. Seems they want you to install a useless maps/routing partner app because they couldn't be bothered to provide the functionality themselves though. Probably going to write a stupid webview app for my own use to replace it since that's all it was anyway (with the addition of ads). WSDOT app isn't great but is lightweight and also works as a replacement.

  72. Viorica Grigoriu-avatar

    Viorica Grigoriu


    I love watching the news and weather with them.

  73. Adda Uadda-avatar

    New app is too hard to navigate and format is confusing. Remember the old addage Keep It Simple? Your app is not simple. Kiro 7 app is nice and simple, its now my favorite app to use. From now on Ill look at your app last, if I have time. 10/26 App is still too confusing, time to uninstall app and get NBC off my phone.

  74. Cheryl Harlick-avatar

    Would like it to NOT keep showing that there is something for me on the app after I have opened it. I dont want to open everything to clear it.

  75. Matthew Baughman-avatar

    Matthew Baughman


    The app besides being unstable and broken links at times was great for keeping me up to date on news back home. This latest update is horrible with the number of ads now littering it. I understand the need for ads to help pay for the service but having ads mixed into the news feed and being an ad every 2-3 stories is ridiculous

  76. A Google user-avatar

    This update is worse than the last! It isn't user friendly at all and takes too long to get to all stories in a specific category. There are more ads which leads me to believe that Tegna/King 5 is more interested in making money than delivering current news on a respectable platform with a user friendly app. Horrible update!

  77. Wendy Swanson-avatar

    I liked the old app better. I most used the weather and traffic links and those appear to be gone. When I tried the search engine nothing happened. Also, many notifications I click on seem to be dead ends, not taking me to the story. I'm seriously considering uninstalling

  78. Kam Von-avatar

    dont like the new app at all... traffic is harder to find, traffic map is small with icons that are in the way and dont even know what it means. comute times are no longer there. only thing i used the app for was traffic. now theres no point as the info is not there.. finding a new app... this sucks

  79. David Felt-avatar

    Loved the old King5 app, this new one of minimalistic interface is lacking and not user friendly as I work twice as hard to find stuff and find sections. I have found I use it less than I did the old mlm app. Wish designers would stop thinking that everyone wants a naked interface with just some dots or dashes that represent nothing in relation to today's world.

  80. Jim Scardelis-avatar

    Bring back the old app. New one is covered in ads; it even inserts them as you're scrolling through the feed. Interface is just busy, the weather report is just an image of a Twitter post - might as well just use my favorite Twitter client to read the King 5 tweets. Uninstalled.

  81. Chris Konomos-avatar

    Slow and not easy to find something as simple as useful as Radar. Took several minutes to show images over western Washington.

  82. Nadia Silver-avatar

    I'd much more prefer getting notifications about things that I've actually following rather than just a random smattering of things, also the graphics are really all that great and I would prefer to have a lot more videos on file.

  83. Ross R-avatar

    The ads are getting ridiculous. Recent update adds a ton of click bait style ads. Some of them are inappropriate. News reel is full of ads that are disguised as news stories. Uninstalled. Hope to meet up again someday after the ads are addressed.

  84. Madeline Quigley-avatar

    Madeline Quigley


    The old version of the app I would have rated 4 out of 5 stars, but the newly upgraded app isn't organized well making it cumbersome to use. I've used this app for about 6 years now. However, I won't be using it going forward.

  85. Sue Button-avatar

    the upgraded app is at at all user friendly. There is so much garbage loading on the page as I am attempting to read an article it that the page jumps l over. It isn't worth my time. After a couple of minutes I switch to KOMO app.

  86. Santos Sarmiento-avatar

    Santos Sarmiento


    It gives out some decent information so i have it on high notifications, which is quite useful, because it alerts me of any new activity.

  87. DeAnn Harden-avatar

    New app is horrible. it is impossible to find things easily and quickly. My major issue was I am unable to find weather information. Make it user friendly, and I'll change my rating.

  88. Alex Oswald-avatar

    Pretty good but sometimes there are "broken" stories that start to load then go back without warning. This is a bad user experience and must get fixed.

  89. Luke Pickett-avatar

    Of all the local Seattle news apps, this one went through some initial Growing Pains to become the best one out there. I use it everyday. much better than it used to be the developers listened and made it a much better app.

  90. Debbie Williams-avatar

    Debbie Williams


    Very slow to load and change pages, it is irritating. Please bring back the old version. In the meantime I'm changing stations,!

  91. Gen Davidson-avatar

    Just a long continuous scrolling page. No sub pages for things like sports. Don't bother, just add the website to your home screen.

  92. Shaun Olin-avatar

    Buggy app after update. Lots of ads. More difficult to navigate through app because of the slide right to left. Things dont fit on screen very well.

  93. Tim Batzel-avatar

    Used to be good, but now you spend most of your time waiting for ads to load and lots of scrolling to get from ads to actual article.

  94. A Google user-avatar

    The ads that have been added are often false or inaccurate. Click bait? I also frequently find grammatical errors in the stories. Uninstalled.

  95. James Townliand-avatar

    James Townliand


    Many videos are small at about only 25% of screen size. Stupid programming. Weather app. used to be excellent, now something a 5th grader might design better.

  96. Thomas Caetano-avatar

    typical American news app plagued by adds and sponsored stories at the end of each article. Pure junk. CNN, Kiro 7 is the same thing. i believe that the Huffington Post app is the only american news app with a clean look.

  97. Michael H-avatar

    30 second ads that lead to either a blank page half the time, or the wrong article. Just horrible. Kiro 7 is way better, uninstalling this now.

  98. Anthony D-avatar

    New layout is trash terrible trying to manuever through, trying to watch high school sports blitz which last season was an easy drop tab now you gotta dig through uninteresting articles uninstalling immediately.... it's trash

  99. David Neal-avatar

    too much time spent scrolling through sections I don't want see to get to the parts I want to see. the old app was much better.

  100. Lisa Beaver-avatar

    Horrible. I hate it. I want the old app back. It was great. This one takes forever to move, you end up going out of it when you don't want to, etc. Terrible!
