Keeps crashing
by Bobby jim head on 2021/03/04 02:35
I prefer a reputable news source but not sure how much longer I can take this app crashing every minute. Web site seems to be the same. FOX, please fix your IT so America can have reliable access to a reputable news source. Mobile apps just aren’t that hard.
Too much clickbait
by Ghcdthfhvftuicdyhhdweqqeukjvg on 2021/03/03 19:55
I want something that gives me succinct news leaders not clickbait. Notifications are more like a Enquirer magazine of guess who just.... Missouri governor just did this.... This are designed only to get me to click to get the story. Even for things that do not justify this much of my time. JJ
Low quality app functions for High quality News
by Sharky3333 on 2021/03/03 16:51
This app is still woefully inadequate. We still can’t search for articles in the app or change account settings. Since big search engines do not favor Fox, this search feature is essential. I want to see what Fox has to say on a subject but I’m stuck with CNN and MSNBC or New York Times in my google search. Get it together Fox!
Love FOX news, But....
by Redgxr on 2021/03/03 14:06
Every article that starts with “see it” or “watch this” actually doesn’t show anything. How frustrating and stupid. And they brag about being top rated everywhere.

Fox News app won’t recognize Sling subscription
by jpwann on 2021/03/02 21:16
I watch Fox News on tv with the Sling app. I pay for Fox News access as part of my Sling subscription. However, if I try to see live Fox shows on my iPhone, the FN app will not show Sling as a tv provider, so I cannot use my Sling login to access live content. The Fox News app is currently useless to me.

Get The News CNN Won’t Cover
by Bean1Cooper on 2021/03/02 11:33
When you see the news covered by Fox and then compare it to the stories on CNN you can really see the bias in coverage. Both are biased to some degree, but Fox News doesn’t seem to try to change the narrative to make the story read like they want it to like CNN does. The only reason I keep the CNN app is because it amuses me to see how they spin everything.
Fox News App
by emsfmfd on 2021/03/02 01:56
If you use just the app it works ok. But when you click a link to Fox Nation or other links it either never loads, or reloads 4-6 times and never does load. Would love to be able to read additional stories but get frustrated reloading constantly so I just quit the app.
Too many algorithms
by Mtpocits on 2021/03/01 16:38
Open the app, slowly scroll through the stories, click on one, it won’t come up. Why? Their “most read” algorithm repositioned the story to a different location in their app. Close the app, reopen, and the story has been moved to a new spot. This happens again and again and again “all day long”. And worse, a story opens to “https://foxnews.blah.blah.blah. These take forever to load and constantly refresh making scrolling down to read, impossible. This app is becoming increasingly worthless.
Fix the bugs. Stories don’t open
by Cuba leader on 2021/03/01 13:30
This app is so frustrating. Half the time you click on a story and it won’t open. Why, for heaven’s sake , in this day and age, your techs can fix this is beyond me. Why post stories if no one can read them?

Get your app straight. I signed up and tried to post and kept rejecting my post telling me a need a post name, which I entered in my set up process. I looked to see if there are profile settings, nope. Garbage. Fix it.

This app within the last couple of months frequently freezes or just stops. So much trouble to read a story
App freezes and uses too much battery
by dsnimsck on 2021/02/28 14:07
I have multiple news apps on my phone. The Fox News app, though, when opened starts fine but slows to a crawl after being opened for a few minutes before completely freezing my phone. It also uses so much battery while open. I’m really disappointed.
Useless Keeps Crashing

Very glitchy app. Keeps crashing. Very frustrating.
Clickbait notifications really annoying
by jaymo588 on 2021/02/26 18:50
I have news notifications enabled to quickly see breaking news. I really hate that they’ve gone to clickbait type notifications now. I’ll probably be turning off notifications.

Constant refreshing and crashing
by 100 000 001 on 2021/02/26 15:17
The last 2 or 3 updates have been terrible! Particularly news articles from FBN, what appears to be page refreshing to the point where you cannot read the article and then the app crashes. Very irritating and disappointing. Time to look elsewhere to get news that you can actually read.
Roku said that there
by ryandedini on 2021/02/26 00:55
Roku said that there show can be watched for free. I would not mind if it was a few hours away and the commercial were broadcast in sequence but I wish to stop all of the channels I don’t want to pay for.
Duplicates

App slows down/crashes iPhone 8
by removethenicknames on 2021/02/25 14:21
Whenever I start scrolling down through the app, the lower I get on the main page the slower the app gets. It gets to a point where each article takes awhile to open, and I can’t scroll down through and read it. And then when I want to close the app, it won’t let me. It seems the app itself is causing function errors on the iPhone. Also, I don’t like when I back out of an article to look at others that the articles will switch their order.

Wheres the picture?
by John g6319 on 2021/02/25 11:03
If you are going to have an article about a picture or a video then put the picture or video in the article! It’s frustrating to see a headline that says “watch this, you won’t believe what just happened!” And when you continue through the article there’s nothing. Not even a link. Very disappointed
Opinions
by Theresardh on 2021/02/25 03:23
I read the news to get news not opinions. I have noticed an abundance of opinion pieces. Please give us news; not fake news.

SO Annoying!
by maplebody on 2021/02/24 01:36
This app used to be a lot better. But the pop in ads are now so disruptive it’s practically unusable. Things you are trying to read don’t stay put. I am this close to deleting it from my phone.
Great news! If you can open the app
by Fredriksz on 2021/02/23 04:48
Love Fox News but the app has lots of bugs. I've downloaded the app several times. When you select the app it takes 3-5 minutes to load! Unacceptable. I wish I could give it zero stars. Once it’s up and running tapping on a story doesn’t mean it will work, it flashes to a white screen every 3-5 seconds. They should start from scratch.
Losing!
by Blbotner on 2021/02/23 02:50
The Fox News App reviews are proof you are losing. I love the news, love staying informed and have considered myself to be a “Fox News Junkie” but NO MORE! You are no better than CNN. I can’t in good conscience continue supporting this app, (it’s been deleted) or your channel. You can thank Jedediah, Donna Brazile and Chris Wallace.

by Shanefrommichigan on 2021/02/20 22:12
When you want to watch a story you should be able to click on it and watch what you click on. In this app does not do what it needs to do. You click on something and it takes you to a totally different story. Very disappointed
They’ve started down the path of clickbait push notifications...
by simmojb on 2021/02/20 22:10
...and most of us won’t stand for it. We’re not stupid and we’ll find another news source if FN is going to resort to those sort of tactics. Leave the drama to others and do what you do best: news, fair and balanced. UPDATE: Today’s clickbait alert: “United plane falls from the sky over Colorado” The ACTUAL headline: “Plane experiences engine trouble and drops debris over Colorado, lands safely”. Just deleted the app — bye bye clickbait.

Getting worse
by Hjvc on 2021/02/19 15:54
The teaser notifications are a waste of time. I want to see the news not the notice to go into the app to read what should be in the bulletin. Most of the time when i click on the link there isn’t anything there. The app is getting worse each time there’s a update. Can I make negative star eval? These teaser bulletins are terrible - then when I click on them, the link leads to app but not the news. About to take the stupid app off the phone.
Click bait
by Olsen People on 2021/02/19 02:56
Fox News started showing teaser headlines in their notification banners. Now I have to open the app to find out what they could have summarized in a sentence or two. This is commonly referred to as “click bait” which is incredibly annoying. I deleted the app.
Proof Read!!!
by ClaytonEasley on 2021/02/18 23:51
Cmon Fox! Does anyone proof read stories before they go up? I never review apps, but felt compelled. There are spelling and grammar mistakes in almost every article. Today, it’s in the friggin headline! “Some powered restored in Texas...” I know everyone butchers the language these days online, but you’re a news organization. After a while, it’s cringe inducing. Step your game up! At the very least, your writers should proof read each other’s work before you throw it up. It should embarrass you guys to have so many mistakes, every day.
Delayed Video Streams
by Shhhteven on 2021/02/18 21:56
On any of the given stream channels, the audio and video are never synced these days. Used to be a decent app. Can’t watch anything now.

After a reinstall (big mistake), the app now will shutdowns, will hang up and everything else I can think of. Very unstable, please fix, time to let a professional fix the app, nothing but crashes and hang ups. With tens of thousands subscribers you need to reward them with a decent app Thank you Now there is excessive battery drain, on my iPhone 8plus the battery checker indicates Fox News 91% battery usage with two hours activity
Revamp
by Milo 8591 on 2021/02/18 00:07

by ihateglightaware on 2021/02/17 18:45
My favorite news source has now become annoying! I don’t know if it’s the app or the latest IOS update, but I no longer receive alert sound with this app which I rely on to keep me updated with breaking news. I have done EVERYTHING to remedy this, checked all my notification settings, turned things on and off and even deleted and renown loaded the app! Nothing worked! Anybody else having this issue? Every time I hear my husbands phone go off with the recognizable sound of a Fox News alert, it drives me crazy to look at my phone and see banner alerts that came in with no sound!
Frequent crashes
by DrSartan on 2021/02/17 17:15
The app is a good reflection of its website and has a good amount of content, but it frequently crashes just by scrolling through the front page stories, or stories just do not load correctly. Very frustrating. Also, some stories, clearly formatted for a web browser, do not fully display in the app format. You’d be better off just viewing the website directly in a browser, with some good ad blocking software.

Fair And Balanced or not?
by Havauser123 on 2021/02/15 07:22
You have a good app you are complaining about other media channels that they do not show some of the news - You are doing the same. Show an example and lead the way. It’s simple, just tell us the news and show both sides of it .... we are all smart enough to know that there is always another side. Most of the news shown recently are focused on bashing the democrats and the left ... that is not news this is mostly propaganda wrapped around news. CNN does the same from the other side It’s about time to get back to normal and stop dividing our nation... we will all pay a high price for this !! Thanks you

Worst App Ever
by The Buckeroo on 2021/02/14 17:37
When opening a story many times you get a blank page over and over as if the app is searching for the story you selected before it finally opens it. Other times it will go to Fox Business and you get a blank screen which may open the story but it loads and reloads and as you finally start to scroll it goes blank again. This app needs to be completely rewritten as no matter how many “bug” fixes they do these problems do not get fixed.

I've had this app for years, used it multiple times daily and loved it, until the past 10 months. It has progressively become so bloated with ads and links, causing freezes and slow response. It has become useless. Maybe trying to force me to go to their "pay for" app.

Too much “Breaking” news
by Mikozantiquesetc on 2021/02/12 15:32
Don’t try to update your app by the second. If I’m reading a story and get a cup of coffee you seem to think I want to see the latest news instead of finishing the original story. So I sit and wait for an update ( I used to), I don’t bother with it anymore.
Constantly glitching

Click Bait
by iPodita on 2021/02/10 01:59
I suppose this review is based more on my opinion of some of the apps content than the functionality of the app itself. I downloaded the app mostly for the notifications. I want quick, concise, up to date news. This app has chosen to turn its notifications into click bait. Notifications no longer serve the purpose of keeping me informed. Now they simply provide only enough info to entice someone to open the app.
Teaser notifications
by How 100 on 2021/02/10 01:58
Stop with all these stupid teaser notifications and just give us the news alert. Act like a real news organization for a change. If this doesn’t change I’m just going to either stop notifications or delete the app
New notifications
by djjdjwjndhfi38833 on 2021/02/09 22:25
The change in the notifications to “click to find out” is ridiculous. Go back to sending alert notifications with actual information in them. I’ll be searching for a different news app and deleting this one.

I’m hoping for an improvement
by woodtoys on 2017/12/28 19:23
Before starting this review, I read through most of the previous comments. I have to say, the complaints I have are shared by many other readers. I am a loyal Fox News reader and watcher. However, the format of the Fox News app is atrocious. Ads cover content and this is getting worse. Today’s stories are only about half visible. The photos are not “zoomable”, the editing (if there is any) reads like a fifth grader proof-read the story. There are misspelled words, improper usage and PLEASE find a synonym for “slam”. Everyone is “slamming” everyone else. Is there no other way to get that message across? I’d like to read Fox News and not get diverted to another source or, worse yet, sent to another site and story completely. When the DOES happen, the article i WAS reading has often changes and I am unable to finish. Ads are now covering content most of the time and this app really needs to be improved.
Disappointed
by carleyflwr on 2020/07/22 16:31
When I first downloaded the app, I didn't notice too many problems. Then when I went to open it last week, my phone immediately crashed and I couldn't turn it back on so i had to take it to the apple store to fix it. I figured it was just an issue with the timing though so I didn't assume the app was the cause. However the next time I opened it, ut crashed again. I ended up buying a new phone. I bought one of the newest models and hoped that would be the end of it. News flash, it was not. The third time I opened the app, my phone crashed once again but since the phone was so new I guess I was able to just turn it back on. So I reset my phone, deleted and redownloaded the app. This time, the app opened, worked properly for a few minutes, then it kicked me out of the app. And besides this major inconvenience, whenever the app WOULD work, it would absolutely KILL MY BATTERY. For instance, if I was on the app while simultaneously charging it, my phones percentage would not go up, it would stay the same no matter how long you charged it, OR IT WOULD GO DOWN. So don't even get me started on trying to be on the app WITHOUT charging the device. All in all, the hassle is totally not worth the completely biased and crappy "news" articles. Very disappointed.
Don’t install this.
by Jared Vine on 2020/08/09 12:02
So, I installed this app to get a good news source to stay well informed about the events happening in the world, though I couldn’t even get a chance to get to this app’s home screen. The moment I launched the app it froze up, and not just the app itself but rather my phone itself froze up. I kept trying to escape with the home button but it wouldn’t take me to my home screen, not to mention that I used my power button to get to my lock screen, and though that did work it took a minute for my phone to turn off. After I put in my passcode to see if it unfroze, it hadn’t. The screen instead turned completely black, but I could use my home button at least, but my phone itself was extremely laggy and I felt my phone overheating. I took my phone out of it’s case and exited the app along with removing it from my tabs before turning off my phone for it to cool down, note that my phone never does this and my house wasn’t hot. I restarted my phone after it cooled down so I could retry it, deciding to chalk it up to my phone possibly being in a funk, but the same thing happened after I retried. I don’t recommend installing this, from other reviews I’ve seen people are having the same exact problems. This app seriously needs to be reworked.
Battery usage, hard to use, strange options
by tired🍟 on 2020/07/22 16:44
When I downloaded the app, it took about 20% of my battery to download. Not only that, but it took about 65% more to use. I didn’t expect to have to have my phone plugged in while I’m reading the news! When I got my phone plugged in, I went to the coronavirus portion of the app, but the link took me to a web browser! I got the app so I don’t have to use a web browser. I scrolled down to the business section, but when I clicked on it, the link took me to the App Store, telling me to download the business app. Why have that section as an offer if you have to download a whole other app? Not only that, but there is no search option, you have to manually find what you want to inform about. Lastly, there was a section for opinions. Why is this even an option? I didn’t get the app to hear opinions. If I wanted to hear some, I would go online or outside. They are news anchors, not politicians. Keep your opinions out of the news. If someone watches videos from this app and hear Tucker Carlson talking about his standpoints on a topic, they might think that it is the facts. I strongly recommend this app be taken down for loss of battery life, glitches and difficult platform, and the mixture of fact and fiction.
Excessive links
by scott9254 on 2019/10/14 16:12
Wrote a review earlier this morning about excessive links embedded within articles that make it impossible to scroll through an article without hitting a link on a mobile device. Folks, I’ve had to hit the “back” arrow dozens of times this AM because of these excessive links. If not repaired in the near future, I will be forced to switch to another app to read the news. The downside to that is I don’t trust most other news sources, so it appears I’m screwed. Please fix this problem. The excessive links are not necessary (most users don’t care about a 2 month old article that we already read 2 months ago). The excessive links have taken a great app and made it unusable on a mobile device. I, for one can’t take much more. I used to read the news “cover to cover” every morning on about 75 minutes. Now I can barely get through the headline articles without getting frustrated over links. I haven’t read the news “cover to cover” for the past week because it just takes too long as you hit the back button DOZENS of times just to get back to the article you’re trying to read. This URGENTLY needs to be fixed or mobile users will lose the only reliable source of national news available. HELP!!!!
Yeah no thank you
by problem131313 on 2020/07/22 14:34
Hey so I downloaded the app so I could get my daily news and see what’s up with the virus. So I download the app and looked around...or tried to. The screen froze for a bit but I assumed it was because I just downloaded it. So I just continued to look around and adds kept popping up and sending me to different websites which is annoying. But I gave up and just went to the different categories, so I tried to go to business....it sent me back to the App Store? Why would you include a section I can’t have without getting another app. I mean seriously? I then saw that to get different sections and areas you had to pay...and I only got 10 minutes with the free preview? That’s barely enough time to look around and then stumble upon the life tv and then find what you want to watch for how ever long you have left. Especially for a new person with the app. The last thing I found annoying is that it drained my battery so much! I was on it for barely 5 minutes and my battery went down 10%. Now I don’t know if that’s my imagination or the app but I have seen other complaints about their battery running low when getting the app. For anyone reading this comment don’t get the app; go find something else reliable
Will KILL your battery.
by Bubba 1992 on 2020/02/11 16:32
Just downloaded. Had the app open (forgot to close) and while NOT EVEN WATCHING it, it ate my battery at 3-4% PER MINUTE. Even worse while watching. Deleted. Not user friendly AT ALL. I was watching something I saw on TV and missed most of because I had to leave the house. Sooo... I downloaded the app, had to click 5 times to find the article/video. Then I hit my home button to bring up GPS. I was watching the video, was half way through before pulling up GPS. Then I go to FN app, and it was still open, but back to home page. Then I get a text I swipe out of, and try and go back to this app. And yet again, lo and behold, I have to start at the home page, click search, click US, look for the article, click on the article, then click play AGAIN. This happened SEVEN TIMES throughout the course of 4 hours! And to top it off, I have to watch annoying commercials before watching the video EVERY SINGLE TIME. Never did finish the video. Deleted for the obnoxious annoyance of how this app is run, but utilizing 3-4% of my battery WHILE NOT IN USE (just open on phone) and even more per minute when viewing a video. Are you serious? Netflix uses 1% like every 3 minutes! They way it should be! Absolutely HORRIBLE app.
Disappointed :(
by cdawson06 on 2020/07/27 03:16
Hello! If you’re questioning whether to download this app and are searching through the reviews, let me give you some insight. It’s a waste of your time. I initially downloaded this app because in a time where so much information was going around I wanted to try out different news sources to see which one gave the most accurate and unbiased news. However Fox News did not hit the mark with this. If you want to actually see what is going on in the world, I would suggest something like the New York Times. All the news from this source is extremely biased and is sadly a lot of right-wing propaganda. Not only the content from this news source is truly disappointing and biased- the app itself has major difficulties. It took a longer time than usual to download, and once it did download the app glitched out several times during just a 10-minute period. I was surprised by this, because I figured if Fox News is being funded and endorsed by Trump they surely would have enough money to ensure a good app service. Sadly this was not the truth. Overall, the news they project is a lot of propaganda and misinformation. Don’t waste your time with this app or the news service in general. Hope this was helpful!
DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!
by ZoeyGS on 2020/08/08 16:17
To start this app is terrible for your phone. In my case it slowed my phone down and the app crashed a lot. Secondly, I have several news apps to keep informed about government and other issues. As I continued to use this app and others I found that Fox was being bias, withholding the truth, as well as flat out lying. This completely destroys the purpose of having a news app... being that I should get the facts and only the facts. This has certainly come to light because of the recent political and racial issues that Fox either refuses to acknowledge, or blatantly lies about. (They have refused to talk about the BLM movement. When they did they made black people look violent. They have lied about Trump in many ways. And muck more.) You should support the Black Lives Matter movement, but even if you don’t how could you respect and take the word of a company that lies for there own selfish reasons? And doesn’t do there primary job of informing the public with the facts. I can’t stand seeing people around me making dictions about who and what they support when the public is being constantly being lied to. Fox News is a big part of that. Idk what you support, however don’t support Fox News. Black Lives Matter✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿
By far worst news app
by lili reese on 2020/08/03 23:54
While streaming the Fox News app I’ve had multiple glitches. The app also tends to freeze a lot which is frustrating when your trying to just see the news. It shouldn’t be that hard to hear news! When I attempt to go into the app it takes extremely long to load. Very few times has the app actually worked as expected. I expect them to fix the bugs right away. I have also noticed the app is EXTREMELY bias. They seem to show only one side of the news. Although they try to keep things short and sweet they’re not reporting on the important matters at hand like the kids in cages that the president of the USA just allowed, global warming, the bad that’s going on with the pandemic and how the president of the us isn’t taking seriously enough therefor we’re losing thousands of civilians a day. All I see is our president trying to take down an app called TikTok and being praised for it. If he did his research TikTok isn’t half as bad as other apps that take way more information like Facebook or Instagram it seems he’s not as concerned about that. It seems that Fox News try to show half of the story when their is worse happening. Please report important news and fix these bugs.
Fail
by NMJason on 2018/04/27 10:19
After seeing the app creators TV commercials play so many times on Fox news, talking about how much it means that apps work correctly this app is almost a joke!! Slow to load, layout is ok but to be honest was already very easy to use in previous form. The real problem lies in the ability to login and watch Fox with my provider, atleast once a day I have to choose and resign into my cable provider. Then after that it's shaky at best if I can watch video, sometimes it loads up and starts playing only to go black during commercials and not come back and phone goes to sleep. Other times the video plays and and freezes sound still going but nothing on the screen till phone once again goes to sleep. CA Technologies please fix this app I wasn't to continue to use it daily! New update.....video plays now almost Everytime I tap watch TV (had to resign in) however while I'm watching if I get an alert or alarm goes off or text comes in I lose sound on the app have to kill the app completely (double click and slide it off) go back and open and back to the news which I've now completely missed what I wanted to hear :-( still not right someone get this thing going soon!
This is dangerous!
by Troopie on 2020/08/11 20:57
I’m sorry, but this is NOT the News. Whether you’re looking to be educated about an issue or just catch up on current events, you won’t get either w/ Fox, unfortunately. I’d rather hear an unbiased telling of events that lets ME decide what I think (and THEN refer to Fox or PBS and other stations as needed)—don’t tell me the news through just one point of view—it automatically leaves me biased and less informed! The level of bias is not just insane, it’s dangerous. I want to be able to have real conversations about current events. It’s dangerous to think you’re informed if this is your only source. Similarly, CNN and msNBC are biased to the left, which may similarly irritate some viewers. The News needs to be unbiased in order to give you the whole story, rather than telling you what to think! I highly recommend PBS News Hour where they do a STELLAR job of giving you the news without adding bias, always presenting both sides, etc. It is quite calming to simply hear the facts with different perspectives fairly presented rather than always having news filtered thru just one perspective. It allows me to engage w/ people and feel well informed rather than just stumble around in constant outrage.
The problems with this app are ASTRONOMICAL
by Miapia158 on 2020/07/29 13:59
I love reading the news. Love it. I love staying informed and discussing topics, so I downloaded Fox News to expand my knowledge on what is being reported. But first let me start with this app took almost an HOUR to load. It took so long, that I forgot I downloaded it, and then when I clicked on to finally read the news, it crashed. Every time. I tried like 6 times to enter the app and it just kept crashing. I thought it was my phone, even though I just got a new one, because it couldn’t be Fox News as they are reliable and trustworthy. So I restarted my phone and then clicked the app again and it crashed and turned off my iPhone?! So I turned my phone on (thank god I have a newer phone because I am reading that people with older phones had to get new phones) and I deleted the app. Then I re-downloaded it and my battery dropped 20%. I tried to open it and it crashed and I noticed my battery dropped 10%. This app has been detrimental to my phone and not to mention, I had to delete so many photos to download it because it requires so much storage. Honestly, I don’t know if it’s worth the download considering the damage it does to your phone.
News app and content
by Worse each upgrade on 2018/07/22 13:59
I have been an avid reader of a Fox News on my phone for years, but I find this latest version the most disappointing to date. Perhaps I am not using it properly, but one used to be able to select categories of news such as ‘World News’, etc.; today it’s only what you select for users to be able to see, read, or hear. My disappointment is in both format and content. The app loads slower than any other news app I have, and the content seems much more ‘entertainment’ and ‘editorial’ than actual news. Big disappointment. I never thought I would come to the point of only reluctantly opening Fox News, and if I am in a hurry I don’t open it at all. I used to check it multiple times a day, which clearly both you and your advertisers goals for revenue reasons; I’m guessing I am not the only Fox fan that has been visiting much less frequently. I opened recently an unsupported version of a Fox News app on one of my old iPhones and saw how it was far superior to several of the most current upgrades. Please again be a news organization; each ‘upgrade’ seems more disappointing than the previous in both content and functionality.
absolutely do not recommend
by dinolollipop on 2020/07/25 17:57
with all of the recent events going on i wanted to be kept updated on what was going on in the world and our country and so i had downloaded the fox news app in hopes that it would keep me updated with unbiased and reliable news, but i got the EXACT opposite. to start off the app would completely drain my battery life and when i first tried to open the app it froze and i had to shut down my phone to get out of the app. then on my second try i actually was able to browse through. as i was reading some articles i was disappointed to see how biased fox news is. some of the headlines had been extremely exaggerated and many of the things that were said in the articles weren’t even accurate. i did my own research on certain topics only to find out that fox news had completely twisted the story and immensely exaggerated the story. the app is equivalent to using wikipedia for a college essay. there are many other problems regarding the app and news source but i would like to keep this short and concise. i really do hope that this app gets taken down so that citizens like myself do are not mislead by an incredibly unreliable news source.
Very Dissatisfied
by reviewer karen on 2020/08/13 16:10
I was super excited to see what was going on in this app but for some reason I have struggled to open it. It takes forever to load upon reopening and I have no clue how to fix it. Every other app I have works fine so it isn’t my device. However, the problems don’t stop there. Once the app finally opens I cannot seem to find the real news, some of the information appears a bit off. Perhaps some of the facts and context in the articles are just not loading for me. On top of all of this, I have experienced battery drainage while using the app. Even when I tried it on my iPad the battery almost died while loading the app with a 47% charge. From the reviews it appears that many others are having a similar problem. I was hoping this would be a reliable source, but with these issues loading correct content I suppose I was mistaken. I hate to see so many people relying on a less than stable source for their news. This app experience made it very clear to me that Fox News doesn’t really care about the people consuming their content. I guess if I want accurate, up to date news I’ll be going back to the Associated Press and New York Times.
A Review from Professional SW Developer
by dradosta on 2020/07/22 19:46
Hello, as a software developer (who has working in app development in particular) knows a terrible app when I see one. One of the things they drill into your brain especially when you’re trying to make your own app is to NEVER take up too much battery. Your consumers will figure it out and then delete the app. So logically one factor I use to determine an app’s quality is the effect is has on my battery life. This app has basically given my phone battery cancer. I used to go at minimum an entire work day with my new iPhone before my battery would even come close to 20%. Now when I open the Fox News App, it will go from 81% to 21% after only a couple of hours. The biggest thing that turned my attention to it being the fault of this app was that my phone was working perfectly fine beforehand. I am very careful about the kinds of things i download onto my phone, and this was the only thing i have downloaded in the last couple of weeks! I have since removed the app and I am now hoping that my battery will restore itself to normal. Note to any young developers out there: please make sure clear your cache periodically!
Fox News Killer of battery life
by plexy10 on 2020/07/22 18:12
I wanted a quick and easy way to acquire news on the go but as I have downloaded the app the phone’s battery drains at a significantly higher rate. I believe this is due to the large amount of embedded links within the articles. Not to mention I was fairly disappointed in the articles lack of sources I’m the type of gal who loves to read the source to better my understanding of the entire situation. In addition the graphics are rather outdated and feel clunky and squared despite all phones being rounded. It makes the app undesirable and appear unfit to be an app in the App Store, which I have deemed to only have apps of the upmost quality. In addition to this, there seems to be some sort of lag when scrolling and clicking. Sometimes it gets so severe the screen will freeze and more often than not my phone’s other functions such as exiting to the app are null. I hope that this will be fixed in the near future but for now as to not cause further damage to my phone I will be deleting the app. Overall I am fairly disappointed and if even everything was to be fixed I am quite skeptical of opening my doors to Fox News again.
an awful disappointment
by shhdjskfj on 2020/08/03 15:02
Ok so i got this app thinking i was gonna get some real news. but the app took forever to download, i just thought it was a problem with my phone so i let it download overnight. In the morning it still hadn't downloaded and i was getting pretty upset. i still waited though. Eventually it downloaded but i still had to go through the trouble of logging in. The app kicked me multiple times. When i finally got in, i couldn't look at anything because to many adds were popping up. So i deleted it then re downloaded the app to see if it had less adds. They went away when i logged in but there was another problem. The app kept kicking me. I kept trying and after a couple of days it let me stay but then the worst happened. My phone started shutting off at random. At first i thought i just have an old phone, so i went to get iPhone 8. When i downloaded the app, the phone started crashing again. I deleted the app then my phone stopped crashing. It was the app, i'm not sure if the software is old or has a virus but i will never be using this app again. Please don't download for the sake of your phone and sanity.
This is just sad...
by hfejejsjsjs on 2020/07/25 00:45
Wow...okay..so where shall I begin? The whole point of me downloading this app was to get information from today’s society and what’s going on but...when I went to download it, it took about 30 minutes but when it finished I went to download a much bigger app and it downloaded quickly and this was shocking. However, I let it slide and continued on... but that was a mistake. When I got in it asked for the usual notification and such.. I put no yet I was still getting notifications. And when I went to press on an article that drew attention it crashed! So I reopened the app and looked for the article and clicked it once again... this happened 4 times. I got tired of this process so I decided to delete the app. When I held down on the app and pressed delete my phone completely crashed and didn’t turn on for an hour...once it turned on I tried again this time it didn’t turn on for a whole day. At this point I was very furious... thinking to myself why is A NEWS APP crashing my phone???!??!?! I had to go to the Apple store and get my phone repaired all because one app. This is insane I’m giving it one star because I can’t give it zero.
Phone crashed due to app.
by Mickason on 2020/07/22 05:46
I’ve had this app for a week or so, to stay updated, because Im not really home to watch tv like that. At first it was nice, I got to check the news before work, then I started noticing problems. My phone started to get these very weird glitches while I used the app, I tried turning my phone off/on and deleting/downloading the app again. Nothing happened, that only seem to make matters worst! It was fine again, when I opened the newly downloaded app, but then it started up again. I tried to look past it, maybe it was a bug in the app and they were going to send a update soon. So I waited and checked the app multiple times a day to try to get the currant news but I couldn’t get passed, a minute within opening the app, it glitched so bad. I hope they really fix this because as of yesterday, I tried to leave the app open to see, if the glitches would stop after awhile but boy was I wrong. It only over heated my phone! I deleted the app and my phone is back to normal, I even went into Apple and they saw nothing wrong, so it had to be the app. Hopefully this is fixed soon. Hopefully this doesn’t happen to anyone else!
HORRIBLE APP 👎👎👎🚫
by emobcl on 2020/07/21 23:59
This app is literally the worst thing ever. I do not recommend getting this app because it gives VERY FAKE news and steals your personal information including : credit card numbers, ip addresses, and it is constantly watching you with the camera app. Even if you just want to get the app see for yourself, as soon as you open it, it infects your phone with many viruses that helps people on the dark web hack you. I have heard many horror stories about how this app targets people in real life once you have downloaded it and infects them with COVID-19. Please, for your own sake do not get this app and inform all of your friends and family not to. It also can access all of your social media accounts like Facebook, Instagram, and tiktok, and it makes fake accounts of you and tries to trick your family and friends into giving money or other personal information. Not to mention, if you have any type of online banking services like Venmo, cash app, etc., it can access them and give YOUR money away or take it for them selves. I am making this review strictly to warn others so they do not get scammed by this horrible app!!! 👎🏻👎🏼👎🏽👎🏾👎🏿
Too many hyperlinks
by Jamey Landry on 2019/10/25 07:05
News articles in the Fox News app have too many hyperlinks to other articles. It seems as though every sentence has a hyperlink in it. That may be fine for the desk top version where it is probably easier to avoid them, however, in this app it is difficult if not impossible to avoid the hyperlinks. Just by scrolling through the article as one reads it, the placement of links occur where one would naturally place one’s thumb in order to scroll the page down. Often, the link comprises the majority of a sentence in the app, equal to three or more lines on the page and thus, unavoidable. That, combined with the ad links that understandably appear on screen, makes for more time spent unintentionally switch back and forth from errant screens rather than reading the chosen article. The only thing more annoying than this is popups, but only just so. The excessive hyperlinks are bothersome and frequently point to backgrounders or old news articles- nothing helpful as the links seem to be intended. Annoying, to the point of not bothering to be bothered with the app.
Why the HELLO is going on??
by Bluemlstmtn on 2019/10/03 06:01
I’ve given Fox News a Great review previously, but can’t do it now! It’s always been the only News App I’ve trusted and the only one I have on my phone. I spend many hours a day on the App. However, after the last update (ios) and other recent changes, I’m going to do some major research for an alternative. 1. Wasting too much time trying to get back to the piece I was reading due to getting to close to one of your MANY BLUE words in an article. You don’t have to touch the word, just get close to it!!! 2. Why in the HELLO would you hire someone like Donna B. She sits there so high and mighty and condemns Republicans and our president while she admitted she gave Hillary the questions in advance, to debate questions. I wouldn’t expect you to hire a republican if they had done that for Trump! You might as well hired Rachael M.!!! 3. You still have a few REAL Journalists on your Team. Don’t do like several of your competitors and and end up with only Opinionists(if you will), and throw Journalism to the wind. There is always someone waiting in the Wing to become #1. Please get back on track.
Very slow
by A2Z BEST on 2020/07/21 23:54
The app is extremely slow and drains my battery. I tried it on a different device as my phone is fairly old and has had its fair share of damage but it was no use, I’d come to the conclusion the app was causing the battery drainage at such an alarmingly fast rate. I would go from 50% to 20% in a matter of 20-30 minutes! This is including trying to switch my phone to low power mode! These app developers really need to take a look at the way the app runs and make some changes! For now I will just continue to get my news from other outlets but I do hope this issue gets fixed. I addition to the battery drainage issues I have also noticed the app itself runs incredibly slow and I can barely get my morning information from it! I usually go in the app in the morning and evening after work but because of how little free time I have I don’t have the time to wait on the app to load. In conclusion the battery drainage the app cause in addition to the slowness of the app really lowered any other expectation I had for it, therefore leading me to rate this petty 1 star rating. Again I do hope these issues to get fixed!
Come on Fox News . . .you can do better
by Hopelessly Found on 2020/05/29 12:23
From the only News Source in which I have some amount of trust I am sorely disappointed in this app. I constantly check it for on-going news and if I am an avid Fox News fan and am frustrated with it, one can imagine how a casual fan will not even bother to use it. The actual written news is great and gets five stars but no photos in actual articles. The photos above the news item links, which I want to see closer up, are not even available in the news article itself. Video clips are the most frustrating. There are too many links in each story and I often have to click on several before finding the clip related to the story headlines. I rarely will watch videos, news videos, although I desire to do so, because of having to endure 15-45 second commercials for almost every video. I understand ads. but give me a break . . .no video is worth waiting through 45 seconds of a commercial. Maybe once but not every time you open a new video link. My time is too valuable and my life is fast paced. I would be willing to pay a subscription to get rid of ads.
Doesn’t accurately inform about what is going on
by JemJanie on 2020/07/22 06:39
In the news today Trump is bashed over and over again and I was hoping for a different perspective by downloading this app. What I’ve been reading has been extremely one sided and in some areas contradicts and confuses what was stated previously. Good reporters and journalist constantly re-evaluate their stances and I see none of that in this app. Everyone and everything seems set in stone and refuses to change. The articles always protect Trump even when he is very clearly being racist or sexist. I wish there were more facts and actual news stories about what is going on :/ I won’t keep this app because I’m not learning anything and just reading the writers and watching the reports bash anything and everything that is in anyone against Trump. Not real news, bashes anything different. :( It doesn’t cover enough about what is going on outside of USA, I wish it would have a wider perspective on global news. Also it is very difficult to use and can’t find what you want/need to read/watch about. Wouldn’t recommend especially for people who need a more user friendly platform where they can learn.
Would Not Recommend Downloading
by yorksforlife on 2020/07/29 02:11
I downloaded this app to see more news about what is happening in the world. I wanted a reliable and unbiased source unlike other news apps. I had to delete many apps and photos to download this app while my storage was less the halfway full because it would not let me download it otherwise. After that, the app took ages to download unlike the other apps I download. The next day, the app was finally ready for me to open it, but it immediately kicked me out. I constantly tried again with the same results. I really wanted to use this app, so I did not give up. After trying for half of an hour, it let me stay in the app for a while. I read the news on the app, and decided to read more the next day. I had to go through the same struggle again after all of my hard work the previous day. I do not want to and will not continue using this app. I'm reading the reviews while typing this, and I am frightened that my whole phone will glitch! I am deleting the app and reading other news articles because this struggle is not worth it. I recommend you do not download this app. 😢
Took forever to download and keeps crashing
by Neha ahmed on 2020/07/25 01:54
I downloaded this app so I could get quick news updates from a reliable source, but was disappointed on what I got. First thing first, this app took ages to download. I even tried cancelling the download and redownloading it but it didn’t help. Now you may think it was because of my WiFi, but I asked my friends with different WiFi networks to download it too, and they experienced the same issue. It did eventually end up installing, but I’d say it took at least 30-35 minutes. Upon opening the app immediately crashed, I thought it was just a glitched so went ahead and tried to reopen it, though it crashed again. At this point I was just frustrated. It did open for about a few seconds and I was able to scroll through it, but then the same issue happened again. I didn’t know if it was just an issue with my phone (iPhone XR), so I asked my family to try it on their phones and it didn’t work either; took 20-30 minutes to dowload and kept crashing too. Overall this is a terrible app and I will be moving to a new news app for my updates. Don’t download.
Latest update is too touch-sensitive
by thebillkenny on 2019/10/07 17:25
I enjoy and appreciate Fox News but The app needs work. First of all, the latest update is so touch sensitive that I can’t just stroll through an article anymore without triggering a link to another page. It’s really frustrating when I’m trying to read an article and I use my finger to scroll down the page, suddenly the app jumps to another page and I have to click the back arrow to return to the original article. Also, I understand the need to include show biz fluff but those stories should not be on the same page as real news. I mean, you might have a story about war, another about impeachment, and then comes a story about how great some 50 year old actress looks in her bikini selfies on Instagram. Really? I know click bait is important for revenue, but it cheapens your brand. Keep the show biz stuff in the show biz section. Finally, a huge frustration is when I click on a story that supposedly contains a video, but the video is nowhere to be found on the page! Drives me crazy. The more these frustrations mount, the less likely I am to continue using the app. Please fix. Thanks!
DON’T DOWNLOAD, BAD APP
by urbsuccheuvloveit on 2020/08/03 20:34
I downloaded this app to keep up to date with everything that’s happening. When I downloaded this app it would not let me change the language to English, and it was stuck in German! I then deleted the app and re downloaded it, luckily it was in English this time. Expect it was telling me false news and news from the past! At first I didn’t notice but then when I saw the news on T.V. I was quite disappointed to see that it was not the same in any way. It was telling me about news from years ago, I’m pretty sure it was stuck in 2001. So again I deleted the app and re downloaded it, but again there where more problems! It was stuck in a different language again and was stuck in something like 2003 news again, and on top of it all it kept asking me to buy many items for some reason!? Random pop ups would appear and I almost bought random stuff with Touch ID because my finger was on the home button. I don’t know if this is happening with anyone else, but if it is then just delete the app. You need to fix these glitches before more and more people start getting them to!
FOX NEWS App
by Marvs2 on 2020/11/08 08:29
Why is there no ability to comment on articles on your website? E.g., I don’t find an option for commenting on the Anderson Cooper article. Do you not want feedback? More importantly, what’s happening to FOX News editorial policy? I used to admire and respect FOX as a good conservative news source. Lately you’ve hired a bunch of really liberal story casters who have seriously changed the FOX image - Donna Brazile, Walter Williams, Chris Wallace ! Combine that with the great people you’ve gotten rid of (or “let go”) and you become just one more blasé member of the hated MSM. No longer anything special. I’ve largely switched to NewsMAX for unbiased reporting. Now with your left leaning coverage of the election, your adulation of the Harris/Biden party, and your loss of Judge Janine - one of your brightest stars! - I would guess that your next step will be to replace Greg Gutfeld and The Five with Jimmy Kimmel! I think my switch to NewsMAX is now complete! Sorry, but I don’t need any more mindless liberal propaganda! I assume these changes are all being driven by big-money sponsors & owners, which is a sad testament to the current state of the news industry!
bad quality
by maddie3858593736373 on 2020/07/22 14:14
as soon as i opened the app it crashed, i had to delete and redownload a couple times before i could actually get in. everything was scattered all over the place, i didn’t like the set up and it was just messy. i don’t recommend bc i’ve noticed how bias fox news is and it’s not getting both sides to certain topics, we need more news coverage that talks about both sides of the story bc people are all getting brainwashed on topics they only know half the story to. we need people to try and help make the world a better place not try to make their opinion/view correct. The next generation needs to be able to fix this stigma, and be more independent, people need to be more open minded, and not as greedy and feel the need to make everything about hatred. Cmon i thought the world was better than this, as a teenager i’m disappointed in the world and i hope things change once the next generation takes positions of power. We know we can’t change the stubborn views of the old close minded people, who only care about money. So all we can do is hope one day when they’re gone things will change.
Horrible and uge dissapointment
by DansForTrump on 2020/08/04 15:30
I downloaded the Fox News app to avoid fake news but by golly it’s flooded with fake news and fake stats. If you weren’t already aware, this is labeled as an “entertainment channel” not a news channel! 😧 I wanted an app for reliable, timely, unbiased news and ✨NEWS FLASH✨ this is the EXACT opposite of what I was expecting. Not to mention that the app disabled my phone for 12 HOURS!❌📱 I tried several times to open the app but it kept returning me to the home screen. On my 4th and final attempt it said I could not use my phone for 12 hours!? How else was u supposed to stay up to date with the president’s twitter without my phone!? Good thing I have my iPad mini, it miraculously worked there but it was very slow and hard to navigate with phat fingers 👇even on an iPad mini. I had to open twitter on my daughter’s laptop💻. I had Fox News on in the background and I kept hearing LIES AND FAKE NEWS!? I was absolutely, T totally shocked, I heard them making up stats that had no correlation or causation. They were comparing two things that made no sense together! 0/10 will no longer be listening to Fake News 🤢
Crashed!
by ddy issuez on 2020/07/22 19:08
I first downloaded this app because my cousin’s niece’s fiancé’s German Shepard’s trainer told me it was a reliable news outlet. I downloaded it three years ago and completely forgot. Since then my phone has been getting hot for no reason. And I get multiple emails from Fox News. They steal your information and use it to get more views. That’s ridiculous! How does apple condone this sort of behavior? I found out yesterday that I had to replace my phone because it crashed from all 25,683,389 u opened emails from Fox News. I have to settle for my Gucci toilet and write this review on here for now. I get my new phone in 3 hours when they finish backing up all my information. But I was curious. What did Fox new want to tell me from the emails? So I open the email. And I saw some inappropriate pictures of my daughter’s favorite tv show, good luck Charlie. I did more investigative work and all 25,683,389 emails were about the same thing. What if my daughter opened this and saw it? I mean sure, she’s 45. But I still dont want her seeing such provocative behavior. Anyways, I’d give it a zero star if I could. This is a terrible app overall.
Problems with Fox News
by Cori Mae on 2020/07/22 09:22
Ok, so with all the coronavirus stuff going on, I wanted to get an app to help me stay informed and see what other news stations were making of it. After scrolling through some articles, I noticed that many of them would take you to OTHER articles. Ok, I thought, it’s fine their just... showing their sources. Next, I noticed that it was rapidly draining my battery. Usually that’s a big no for me, but I know that it can be fixed. Moving on. I then decided to watch one of the videos (it took forever to load) with Tucker Carlson. My little cousin was in the room with me and well, Tucker ended up saying some things that an 8-year old child should not hear, especially if that child is raised as an accepting Christian (which me and my whole family are). I tried to leave the video but it wouldn’t respond. I plugged in some headphones and waited it out. And that brought me to my conclusion. Fox News does nothing but keep people misinformed and constantly shows off their racist and bigoted views that is clearly hate speech. Don’t download this if you value the good air God created for you to breath.
Used to love this app, now....not so much.
by DOQuinn on 2019/10/14 23:00
The changes made with the last couple updates really make your app tough to navigate. My biggest problem is all the embedded links within a story. I click on the story headline to read it in more detail and have to literally mindfully avoid all the embedded headlines of headlines that should be closely related to the current story but sometimes there is only a word or two or a name that ties it. Here’s an idea. Take them out of the body of the story and put them all at the end. Then if we wanted to read more we could continue, but if we don’t then it won’t hinder our reading experience. I can’t tell you how many times while trying to scroll, through what should only be a few paragraphs of reading but becomes several pages because of large embedded text of links to other stories or videos I have no interest in watching, I have accidentally touched one of them and have to hit back and then reread to find my place again. It is getting so I am seeking my news elsewhere. Please fix it.
Gets worse with each update
by J.C.Stone on 2020/12/28 17:35
Don’t get me wrong I like Fox News, it’s just that lately each time the update the app something else gets broken. I am conflicted between waiting to see if things actually get fixed or they break something else. Unfortunately I don’t think they read these. 1. Lists are not displayed. Often articles indicate there is some list to follow and nothing is there. Going onto the website you can see the numbered or bulleted list. Evidently the app doesn’t like to bring in <ul> tags. 2. Pictures are not displayed. When an article is supposed to be showing a group of pictures-i.e. Pictures of the Week, only the first two pictures are ever displayed. The rest are blank, not even the accompanying text description. 3. Too many “See it” articles don’t show what it is you are supposed to be seeing. There are articles that are prefaced with “See it” or something similar, leading one to infer that there will be a picture to see. Most the time there is nothing but text. These all used to work just fine. Please fix them.
Bad horrible app broke my phone
by popa deb on 2020/08/19 13:43
I’m part of the baby boomer population and this app is absolutely bad for our generation! It took almost two hours to download when most apps on my phone only take a couple seconds! It also started to crash my phone after I opened it. I went on to Facebook to make a post asking if anyone knew what to do but it kicked me out of that too! Even my nephew, who is very technologically advanced, couldn’t figure it out. I also always read the terms and conditions before using an app and I am shocked by what I saw. First of all it told me that I was going to have all of my google searches and history stored in the app! Second it said that all my old photos would be deleted if there wasn’t enough space on my phone for the app. Two days later I took my phone to the atnt store to look at it. My battery was dying constantly and my photos of my grandchildren were being deleted. The phone fixers told me that the Fox News app gave me a virus on my phone! I was unaware that it and sent out those ugly spam emails to my friends from church! Thank the lord it all stopped after I deleted the app! -Debby Holden
tremendously disappointed
by donjald trump on 2020/08/08 05:37
i downloaded this app so i could receive updates on my fantastic president. however i was TREMENDOUSLY disappointed. i was told that this app was gonna be HUGE. but i've been disappointed before and when i compare my disappoint now to my disappointment before i tell you what it's not even comparable. i personally think that CHJINA is to blame. they must have hacked my phone because i saw no good stories on donald. or perhaps maybe my phone has been corrupted by SOCIALISM. socialism is very dangerous. i've seen danger before and i know that danger is as dangerous as that. however my phone was not corrupt by CHJINA or SOCIALISM before downloading this app. it must be linked to app. i've seen a lot of terrific apps in my day and when i compare this app to the terrific apps that i know and love there is a HUGE difference. i know that all media is completely fake and corrupt no matter what it is trying to tell you it is WRONG. even if the news is right i can assure you that it is wrong. my president (the orange donald trump) was as always right. please mr trump protect from this news that i can only describe as HORRID and a HOAX.
The app keeps crashing and draining my battery!
by hihihi12345) on 2020/07/22 20:07
I downloaded this app to be my primary source of news. At first the app worked good enough ( I could get all my news without the app crashing or my battery draining). However, recently the app will crash at least twice before actually working. Most of the time, I will click on the app and my phone will freeze for a couple seconds and then the app will crash. Like I said before this happens at least twice before I can finally get into the app. I have also noticed that whenever I use the app my battery drains by 15-20%! I wouldn’t have an issue with this if it was only 5%, but the app drains my phone battery so much that I can only use the app when my phone is at 100% battery. I want to be able to use this app; however, unless this app is fixed I WILL NOT use it! I should not have to deal with my phone constantly crashing and my battery being drained every time I want to keep up with the news or read an article. Unless this app is fixed, It NEEDS to be taken down before it causes serious damage to a users phone!
Not a very good app to many lags and crashes 0/10 would not recommend downloading.
by Daneyupshae on 2020/07/29 13:38
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been using the app but from the start there were many crashes and when I would try to tap on certain settings the app would freeze and I wouldn’t be able to click on anything. I had also been experiencing lag on my phone when I was off the app, or if the app was still running in my background. And another time I was using the app it was worse. It completely crashed my phone. “Why?” I have no idea but I know for sure that it was this app because when I had finally got my phone fixed, it was the only app that was missing from my phone. All of my other apps were still there perfectly fine. I have made sure that my phone didn’t have any connection with this app because I didn’t want anymore lags or crashes to happen a couple days ago, and I can say that my phone is working smoothly and there are no glitches at all. Until someone can fix this app, you will not have my vote. Thank you, but no thank you. Have a good day.
Horrible App Full of Bugs (or worse)
by AnikaandAj on 2020/08/14 05:55
This is the worst app I’ve ever downloaded. And I use downloaded in the lowest sense, because it took over an hour to actually download. Before that it would just stop and start on it’s own. I’ve never seen anything like it. Once I finally got it open, it was unusable because it kept quitting or jumping to the top of the article so I couldn’t actually read anything. I don’t know if this is just a bug, a coding issue, or potentially data hacking I’ve been seeing so much about. I asked around and everybody I know has been having app trouble, even those who’ve had the app downloaded for ages. I asked my nephew to check if it’s something wrong with my phone (he studies Computer Science at FSU) and he couldn’t figure it out, but said it’s probably safer to delete the app to protect from a virus or data breach. Now, I don’t know what the hell other reviewers are talking about with some Gen Z thing (unlike them, I actually have a job) but I’m not the only one having these issues. Until they get their app together and fix their app, I would suggest steering clear of this horrible app.
Way too much information!
by Ranger Giff on 2018/03/31 15:16
Way too much information on way too many minor stories. It is now like reading something at the check out at the grocery store. Old app was far better. Come on Fox keep the high ground and don’t get in the ditch with the other new networks. Fox was by far my “go to” for news. Now I rather go to CNN. I don’t have time to try to wade through so many worthless stories. Just put the old app next to this new one and you can see the stark differences. I am almost at the point of deleting it! Keep your site updated. There are three day old stories still on the site. They are mixed up with current stories. You have to “hunt and pick” to find current news. Loved the old app. This version is a total waste of my time. I want my news quick and dirty and not have to waste a great deal of time trying to find real news. Download the app News and see how it manages keeping new news at the top and divides the news into various sections that you can choose to put on your home page instead of having to switch between topics as on your menu.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!
by 🧚‍♀️🤪🤩🥰🧚‍♀️✨💖🧚‍♀️ on 2020/07/22 16:29
this app is absolute garbage! I wish I could give it zero stars because that’s what it deserves Whenever I get a notification from it my whole phone gets glitchy it also uses so much of my battery! This app took around 3 hours for it to download, definitely not worth the wait...almost every time I open the app my cat throws up, and honestly I don’t blame her, I get a little nauseous myself every time I open the app and see that cheeto puff lookin bunker boy, Donald trump🤢🤢 after all that I decide to delete the app off my phone, you’d think it would be done and stop there right? WRONG, some people from Fox News headquarters shows up at my house in the middle of the night and stabbed my dog, mr. Charles Wilfred III, to death(rip boy I miss you every day 😪) but not only did Fox News headquarters kill my dog but they cooked him up and put him in a soup!! It was the most horrific day of my life. It’s because of them I can’t eat soup anymore I CANT EVEN LOOK AT IT😓😓 it’s been hard but hopefully it will get better:(( again don’t get the app unless u want ur dog killed and never want to eat soup again.

Tucker Carlson I have watched now for over 5 years and see no end in sight, why? I believe in the balance and depth of our news reporting. I’m sure and have researched Carlson the person and have listened closely to the limited personal opinion shared and or expressed. I respect anyone’s need to be heard or express their beliefs but expect my news to be given with factual evidence ,in depth analysis presented with balance from multiple opinions from proven and qualified opinions. Thank you to Carlson for his professionalism and genuine passion to shine the light on all the information and facts no matter where the factual declared destination brings us . Words matter and truth is demanded of all who present news and firmly expect the highest standards of all who report to the America I love. Continued success , and never waiver nor surrender doing your work - it’s your God given responsibility and I expect nothing less from your profession! We are all listening , emotionally being lifted up and totally destroyed by every single word - In conclusion, Tucker I demand you stay focused , determined , present the facts with journalistic integrity the days news - God is watching us all, and America to be respected , honored and treasured. My devastation and despair is journalism has died and what we have been left with will destroy the place I call home, our America.
HORRIBLE APP
by Prisys 😇😬👳👮👷💂 on 2020/07/23 03:45
I originally got this app to keep up with the news since there has been so much going on lately. However this app took quite a while to download. Once it was finally done it started to make my phone crash and glitch. I exited the app then went back to it to see if it would work, but it didn’t. I decided just to deal with it’s glitchy ness and carry on to look through the app, and a few minutes in I realized that what was my fully charged phone was now only at 20%. I went to get my charger so my phone doesn’t die, but even when I had plugged it in several minutes later it had only charged 4%. On top of all that it also took up soooooo much storage. I had tried to get another app however it said I couldn’t because my storage was completely full😦. It was horrible!! So after all that I decided to delete it and once it was deleted it was all fixed up. I very disappointed in this app it should be fixed IMMEDIATELY. So in conclusion do not get this app it will mess up your phone while you have it. Thank you, I hope this helped. ✨💋👹
Turning off All Network News
by Har100 on 2019/03/19 13:54
I have been a loyal Fox News viewer for many years. Since I’m retired, I tend to watch Fox News more than most. I am retired military and my political views are conservative, pro gun, pro life, strong immigration law enforcement, America first and most importantly, get God back on our side. We have a president that is trying to do this but the media, including Fox, are doing their best to destroy this man. Recently, I have seen political correctness encroaching across all Fox shows (Hannaty being the only exception). I really don’t recognize our country anymore. The rhetoric I hear about socialism, anti-American values, reparations, open borders, eliminating the death penalty, killing newborn babies, Congress members shouting “impeach the MF” and swearing in members of congress without the standard oath of office. There are many more but I’m out of breath. Yes, I’m an old white guy whose time, and values, is close to its expiration date. I will die worried about the America that my Grandkids and Great Grandkids will have to fight for. Doubtlessly, it will, at some point come to a fight. Back to my original point/thought——I’m done with Fox News.
0/10 DO NOT DOWNLOAD
by Manny's left kneecap on 2020/07/26 10:22
So I downloaded this app not too long ago just for news and the like, and everything was going well up until about a week ago, when I noticed the app started lagging pretty badly. I didn’t think much of it at first, and just assumed it was my poor internet connection, but after a while, the app started having some pretty severe visual glitches, such as lines across the screen and distorted color. This was pretty concerning, so I decided to delete the app, power off my phone, and then reinstall it again in hopes of fixing the glitches. Unfortunately, it only got worse, as videos would no longer load at all, and it started to occasionally crash. After that, I decided to give the app a few days and maybe it would just go back to normal, but much to my dismay, when I tried to open the app this morning, it would just load for a couple seconds, and then crash. I don’t know what to say other than this app has become completely unusable for me, and I cannot give anything more than 0/10 to an app that does not work.

Keeps crashing
by Bobby jim head on 2021/03/04 02:35
I prefer a reputable news source but not sure how much longer I can take this app crashing every minute. Web site seems to be the same. FOX, please fix your IT so America can have reliable access to a reputable news source. Mobile apps just aren’t that hard.
Too much clickbait
by Ghcdthfhvftuicdyhhdweqqeukjvg on 2021/03/03 19:55
I want something that gives me succinct news leaders not clickbait. Notifications are more like a Enquirer magazine of guess who just.... Missouri governor just did this.... This are designed only to get me to click to get the story. Even for things that do not justify this much of my time. JJ
Low quality app functions for High quality News
by Sharky3333 on 2021/03/03 16:51
This app is still woefully inadequate. We still can’t search for articles in the app or change account settings. Since big search engines do not favor Fox, this search feature is essential. I want to see what Fox has to say on a subject but I’m stuck with CNN and MSNBC or New York Times in my google search. Get it together Fox!
Love FOX news, But....

Fox News app won’t recognize Sling subscription
by jpwann on 2021/03/02 21:16
I watch Fox News on tv with the Sling app. I pay for Fox News access as part of my Sling subscription. However, if I try to see live Fox shows on my iPhone, the FN app will not show Sling as a tv provider, so I cannot use my Sling login to access live content. The Fox News app is currently useless to me.

Get The News CNN Won’t Cover
by Bean1Cooper on 2021/03/02 11:33
When you see the news covered by Fox and then compare it to the stories on CNN you can really see the bias in coverage. Both are biased to some degree, but Fox News doesn’t seem to try to change the narrative to make the story read like they want it to like CNN does. The only reason I keep the CNN app is because it amuses me to see how they spin everything.
Fox News App
by emsfmfd on 2021/03/02 01:56
If you use just the app it works ok. But when you click a link to Fox Nation or other links it either never loads, or reloads 4-6 times and never does load. Would love to be able to read additional stories but get frustrated reloading constantly so I just quit the app.
Too many algorithms
by Mtpocits on 2021/03/01 16:38
Open the app, slowly scroll through the stories, click on one, it won’t come up. Why? Their “most read” algorithm repositioned the story to a different location in their app. Close the app, reopen, and the story has been moved to a new spot. This happens again and again and again “all day long”. And worse, a story opens to “https://foxnews.blah.blah.blah. These take forever to load and constantly refresh making scrolling down to read, impossible. This app is becoming increasingly worthless.

This app is so frustrating. Half the time you click on a story and it won’t open. Why, for heaven’s sake , in this day and age, your techs can fix this is beyond me. Why post stories if no one can read them?

Get your app straight. I signed up and tried to post and kept rejecting my post telling me a need a post name, which I entered in my set up process. I looked to see if there are profile settings, nope. Garbage. Fix it.

App frequently freezes

This app within the last couple of months frequently freezes or just stops. So much trouble to read a story
App freezes and uses too much battery
by dsnimsck on 2021/02/28 14:07
I have multiple news apps on my phone. The Fox News app, though, when opened starts fine but slows to a crawl after being opened for a few minutes before completely freezing my phone. It also uses so much battery while open. I’m really disappointed.
Useless Keeps Crashing

Very glitchy app. Keeps crashing. Very frustrating.
Clickbait notifications really annoying
by jaymo588 on 2021/02/26 18:50
I have news notifications enabled to quickly see breaking news. I really hate that they’ve gone to clickbait type notifications now. I’ll probably be turning off notifications.

Constant refreshing and crashing
by 100 000 001 on 2021/02/26 15:17
The last 2 or 3 updates have been terrible! Particularly news articles from FBN, what appears to be page refreshing to the point where you cannot read the article and then the app crashes. Very irritating and disappointing. Time to look elsewhere to get news that you can actually read.
Roku said that there
by ryandedini on 2021/02/26 00:55
Roku said that there show can be watched for free. I would not mind if it was a few hours away and the commercial were broadcast in sequence but I wish to stop all of the channels I don’t want to pay for.

App slows down/crashes iPhone 8
by removethenicknames on 2021/02/25 14:21
Whenever I start scrolling down through the app, the lower I get on the main page the slower the app gets. It gets to a point where each article takes awhile to open, and I can’t scroll down through and read it. And then when I want to close the app, it won’t let me. It seems the app itself is causing function errors on the iPhone. Also, I don’t like when I back out of an article to look at others that the articles will switch their order.

Wheres the picture?
by John g6319 on 2021/02/25 11:03
If you are going to have an article about a picture or a video then put the picture or video in the article! It’s frustrating to see a headline that says “watch this, you won’t believe what just happened!” And when you continue through the article there’s nothing. Not even a link. Very disappointed

Great news! If you can open the app
by Fredriksz on 2021/02/23 04:48
Love Fox News but the app has lots of bugs. I've downloaded the app several times. When you select the app it takes 3-5 minutes to load! Unacceptable. I wish I could give it zero stars. Once it’s up and running tapping on a story doesn’t mean it will work, it flashes to a white screen every 3-5 seconds. They should start from scratch.
Losing!
by Blbotner on 2021/02/23 02:50
The Fox News App reviews are proof you are losing. I love the news, love staying informed and have considered myself to be a “Fox News Junkie” but NO MORE! You are no better than CNN. I can’t in good conscience continue supporting this app, (it’s been deleted) or your channel. You can thank Jedediah, Donna Brazile and Chris Wallace.

When you want to watch a story you should be able to click on it and watch what you click on. In this app does not do what it needs to do. You click on something and it takes you to a totally different story. Very disappointed
They’ve started down the path of clickbait push notifications...

...and most of us won’t stand for it. We’re not stupid and we’ll find another news source if FN is going to resort to those sort of tactics. Leave the drama to others and do what you do best: news, fair and balanced. UPDATE: Today’s clickbait alert: “United plane falls from the sky over Colorado” The ACTUAL headline: “Plane experiences engine trouble and drops debris over Colorado, lands safely”. Just deleted the app — bye bye clickbait.

Getting worse
by Hjvc on 2021/02/19 15:54
The teaser notifications are a waste of time. I want to see the news not the notice to go into the app to read what should be in the bulletin. Most of the time when i click on the link there isn’t anything there. The app is getting worse each time there’s a update. Can I make negative star eval? These teaser bulletins are terrible - then when I click on them, the link leads to app but not the news. About to take the stupid app off the phone.
Click bait
by Olsen People on 2021/02/19 02:56
Fox News started showing teaser headlines in their notification banners. Now I have to open the app to find out what they could have summarized in a sentence or two. This is commonly referred to as “click bait” which is incredibly annoying. I deleted the app.
Proof Read!!!
by ClaytonEasley on 2021/02/18 23:51
Cmon Fox! Does anyone proof read stories before they go up? I never review apps, but felt compelled. There are spelling and grammar mistakes in almost every article. Today, it’s in the friggin headline! “Some powered restored in Texas...” I know everyone butchers the language these days online, but you’re a news organization. After a while, it’s cringe inducing. Step your game up! At the very least, your writers should proof read each other’s work before you throw it up. It should embarrass you guys to have so many mistakes, every day.

My favorite news source has now become annoying! I don’t know if it’s the app or the latest IOS update, but I no longer receive alert sound with this app which I rely on to keep me updated with breaking news. I have done EVERYTHING to remedy this, checked all my notification settings, turned things on and off and even deleted and renown loaded the app! Nothing worked! Anybody else having this issue? Every time I hear my husbands phone go off with the recognizable sound of a Fox News alert, it drives me crazy to look at my phone and see banner alerts that came in with no sound!
Frequent crashes
by DrSartan on 2021/02/17 17:15
The app is a good reflection of its website and has a good amount of content, but it frequently crashes just by scrolling through the front page stories, or stories just do not load correctly. Very frustrating. Also, some stories, clearly formatted for a web browser, do not fully display in the app format. You’d be better off just viewing the website directly in a browser, with some good ad blocking software.

Fair And Balanced or not?
by Havauser123 on 2021/02/15 07:22
You have a good app you are complaining about other media channels that they do not show some of the news - You are doing the same. Show an example and lead the way. It’s simple, just tell us the news and show both sides of it .... we are all smart enough to know that there is always another side. Most of the news shown recently are focused on bashing the democrats and the left ... that is not news this is mostly propaganda wrapped around news. CNN does the same from the other side It’s about time to get back to normal and stop dividing our nation... we will all pay a high price for this !! Thanks you

Worst App Ever
by The Buckeroo on 2021/02/14 17:37
When opening a story many times you get a blank page over and over as if the app is searching for the story you selected before it finally opens it. Other times it will go to Fox Business and you get a blank screen which may open the story but it loads and reloads and as you finally start to scroll it goes blank again. This app needs to be completely rewritten as no matter how many “bug” fixes they do these problems do not get fixed.

Too much “Breaking” news
by Mikozantiquesetc on 2021/02/12 15:32
Don’t try to update your app by the second. If I’m reading a story and get a cup of coffee you seem to think I want to see the latest news instead of finishing the original story. So I sit and wait for an update ( I used to), I don’t bother with it anymore.

Click Bait
by iPodita on 2021/02/10 01:59
I suppose this review is based more on my opinion of some of the apps content than the functionality of the app itself. I downloaded the app mostly for the notifications. I want quick, concise, up to date news. This app has chosen to turn its notifications into click bait. Notifications no longer serve the purpose of keeping me informed. Now they simply provide only enough info to entice someone to open the app.
Teaser notifications
by How 100 on 2021/02/10 01:58
Stop with all these stupid teaser notifications and just give us the news alert. Act like a real news organization for a change. If this doesn’t change I’m just going to either stop notifications or delete the app

The the truth
I’m hoping for an improvement
by woodtoys on 2017/12/28 19:23
Before starting this review, I read through most of the previous comments. I have to say, the complaints I have are shared by many other readers. I am a loyal Fox News reader and watcher. However, the format of the Fox News app is atrocious. Ads cover content and this is getting worse. Today’s stories are only about half visible. The photos are not “zoomable”, the editing (if there is any) reads like a fifth grader proof-read the story. There are misspelled words, improper usage and PLEASE find a synonym for “slam”. Everyone is “slamming” everyone else. Is there no other way to get that message across? I’d like to read Fox News and not get diverted to another source or, worse yet, sent to another site and story completely. When the DOES happen, the article i WAS reading has often changes and I am unable to finish. Ads are now covering content most of the time and this app really needs to be improved.
Disappointed
by carleyflwr on 2020/07/22 16:31
When I first downloaded the app, I didn't notice too many problems. Then when I went to open it last week, my phone immediately crashed and I couldn't turn it back on so i had to take it to the apple store to fix it. I figured it was just an issue with the timing though so I didn't assume the app was the cause. However the next time I opened it, ut crashed again. I ended up buying a new phone. I bought one of the newest models and hoped that would be the end of it. News flash, it was not. The third time I opened the app, my phone crashed once again but since the phone was so new I guess I was able to just turn it back on. So I reset my phone, deleted and redownloaded the app. This time, the app opened, worked properly for a few minutes, then it kicked me out of the app. And besides this major inconvenience, whenever the app WOULD work, it would absolutely KILL MY BATTERY. For instance, if I was on the app while simultaneously charging it, my phones percentage would not go up, it would stay the same no matter how long you charged it, OR IT WOULD GO DOWN. So don't even get me started on trying to be on the app WITHOUT charging the device. All in all, the hassle is totally not worth the completely biased and crappy "news" articles. Very disappointed.
Don’t install this.
by Jared Vine on 2020/08/09 12:02
So, I installed this app to get a good news source to stay well informed about the events happening in the world, though I couldn’t even get a chance to get to this app’s home screen. The moment I launched the app it froze up, and not just the app itself but rather my phone itself froze up. I kept trying to escape with the home button but it wouldn’t take me to my home screen, not to mention that I used my power button to get to my lock screen, and though that did work it took a minute for my phone to turn off. After I put in my passcode to see if it unfroze, it hadn’t. The screen instead turned completely black, but I could use my home button at least, but my phone itself was extremely laggy and I felt my phone overheating. I took my phone out of it’s case and exited the app along with removing it from my tabs before turning off my phone for it to cool down, note that my phone never does this and my house wasn’t hot. I restarted my phone after it cooled down so I could retry it, deciding to chalk it up to my phone possibly being in a funk, but the same thing happened after I retried. I don’t recommend installing this, from other reviews I’ve seen people are having the same exact problems. This app seriously needs to be reworked.
Battery usage, hard to use, strange options
by tired🍟 on 2020/07/22 16:44
When I downloaded the app, it took about 20% of my battery to download. Not only that, but it took about 65% more to use. I didn’t expect to have to have my phone plugged in while I’m reading the news! When I got my phone plugged in, I went to the coronavirus portion of the app, but the link took me to a web browser! I got the app so I don’t have to use a web browser. I scrolled down to the business section, but when I clicked on it, the link took me to the App Store, telling me to download the business app. Why have that section as an offer if you have to download a whole other app? Not only that, but there is no search option, you have to manually find what you want to inform about. Lastly, there was a section for opinions. Why is this even an option? I didn’t get the app to hear opinions. If I wanted to hear some, I would go online or outside. They are news anchors, not politicians. Keep your opinions out of the news. If someone watches videos from this app and hear Tucker Carlson talking about his standpoints on a topic, they might think that it is the facts. I strongly recommend this app be taken down for loss of battery life, glitches and difficult platform, and the mixture of fact and fiction.
Excessive links
by scott9254 on 2019/10/14 16:12
Wrote a review earlier this morning about excessive links embedded within articles that make it impossible to scroll through an article without hitting a link on a mobile device. Folks, I’ve had to hit the “back” arrow dozens of times this AM because of these excessive links. If not repaired in the near future, I will be forced to switch to another app to read the news. The downside to that is I don’t trust most other news sources, so it appears I’m screwed. Please fix this problem. The excessive links are not necessary (most users don’t care about a 2 month old article that we already read 2 months ago). The excessive links have taken a great app and made it unusable on a mobile device. I, for one can’t take much more. I used to read the news “cover to cover” every morning on about 75 minutes. Now I can barely get through the headline articles without getting frustrated over links. I haven’t read the news “cover to cover” for the past week because it just takes too long as you hit the back button DOZENS of times just to get back to the article you’re trying to read. This URGENTLY needs to be fixed or mobile users will lose the only reliable source of national news available. HELP!!!!

Hey so I downloaded the app so I could get my daily news and see what’s up with the virus. So I download the app and looked around...or tried to. The screen froze for a bit but I assumed it was because I just downloaded it. So I just continued to look around and adds kept popping up and sending me to different websites which is annoying. But I gave up and just went to the different categories, so I tried to go to business....it sent me back to the App Store? Why would you include a section I can’t have without getting another app. I mean seriously? I then saw that to get different sections and areas you had to pay...and I only got 10 minutes with the free preview? That’s barely enough time to look around and then stumble upon the life tv and then find what you want to watch for how ever long you have left. Especially for a new person with the app. The last thing I found annoying is that it drained my battery so much! I was on it for barely 5 minutes and my battery went down 10%. Now I don’t know if that’s my imagination or the app but I have seen other complaints about their battery running low when getting the app. For anyone reading this comment don’t get the app; go find something else reliable
Will KILL your battery.
by Bubba 1992 on 2020/02/11 16:32
Just downloaded. Had the app open (forgot to close) and while NOT EVEN WATCHING it, it ate my battery at 3-4% PER MINUTE. Even worse while watching. Deleted. Not user friendly AT ALL. I was watching something I saw on TV and missed most of because I had to leave the house. Sooo... I downloaded the app, had to click 5 times to find the article/video. Then I hit my home button to bring up GPS. I was watching the video, was half way through before pulling up GPS. Then I go to FN app, and it was still open, but back to home page. Then I get a text I swipe out of, and try and go back to this app. And yet again, lo and behold, I have to start at the home page, click search, click US, look for the article, click on the article, then click play AGAIN. This happened SEVEN TIMES throughout the course of 4 hours! And to top it off, I have to watch annoying commercials before watching the video EVERY SINGLE TIME. Never did finish the video. Deleted for the obnoxious annoyance of how this app is run, but utilizing 3-4% of my battery WHILE NOT IN USE (just open on phone) and even more per minute when viewing a video. Are you serious? Netflix uses 1% like every 3 minutes! They way it should be! Absolutely HORRIBLE app.
Disappointed :(
by cdawson06 on 2020/07/27 03:16
Hello! If you’re questioning whether to download this app and are searching through the reviews, let me give you some insight. It’s a waste of your time. I initially downloaded this app because in a time where so much information was going around I wanted to try out different news sources to see which one gave the most accurate and unbiased news. However Fox News did not hit the mark with this. If you want to actually see what is going on in the world, I would suggest something like the New York Times. All the news from this source is extremely biased and is sadly a lot of right-wing propaganda. Not only the content from this news source is truly disappointing and biased- the app itself has major difficulties. It took a longer time than usual to download, and once it did download the app glitched out several times during just a 10-minute period. I was surprised by this, because I figured if Fox News is being funded and endorsed by Trump they surely would have enough money to ensure a good app service. Sadly this was not the truth. Overall, the news they project is a lot of propaganda and misinformation. Don’t waste your time with this app or the news service in general. Hope this was helpful!
DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!
by ZoeyGS on 2020/08/08 16:17
To start this app is terrible for your phone. In my case it slowed my phone down and the app crashed a lot. Secondly, I have several news apps to keep informed about government and other issues. As I continued to use this app and others I found that Fox was being bias, withholding the truth, as well as flat out lying. This completely destroys the purpose of having a news app... being that I should get the facts and only the facts. This has certainly come to light because of the recent political and racial issues that Fox either refuses to acknowledge, or blatantly lies about. (They have refused to talk about the BLM movement. When they did they made black people look violent. They have lied about Trump in many ways. And muck more.) You should support the Black Lives Matter movement, but even if you don’t how could you respect and take the word of a company that lies for there own selfish reasons? And doesn’t do there primary job of informing the public with the facts. I can’t stand seeing people around me making dictions about who and what they support when the public is being constantly being lied to. Fox News is a big part of that. Idk what you support, however don’t support Fox News. Black Lives Matter✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿
By far worst news app
by lili reese on 2020/08/03 23:54
While streaming the Fox News app I’ve had multiple glitches. The app also tends to freeze a lot which is frustrating when your trying to just see the news. It shouldn’t be that hard to hear news! When I attempt to go into the app it takes extremely long to load. Very few times has the app actually worked as expected. I expect them to fix the bugs right away. I have also noticed the app is EXTREMELY bias. They seem to show only one side of the news. Although they try to keep things short and sweet they’re not reporting on the important matters at hand like the kids in cages that the president of the USA just allowed, global warming, the bad that’s going on with the pandemic and how the president of the us isn’t taking seriously enough therefor we’re losing thousands of civilians a day. All I see is our president trying to take down an app called TikTok and being praised for it. If he did his research TikTok isn’t half as bad as other apps that take way more information like Facebook or Instagram it seems he’s not as concerned about that. It seems that Fox News try to show half of the story when their is worse happening. Please report important news and fix these bugs.
Fail
by NMJason on 2018/04/27 10:19
After seeing the app creators TV commercials play so many times on Fox news, talking about how much it means that apps work correctly this app is almost a joke!! Slow to load, layout is ok but to be honest was already very easy to use in previous form. The real problem lies in the ability to login and watch Fox with my provider, atleast once a day I have to choose and resign into my cable provider. Then after that it's shaky at best if I can watch video, sometimes it loads up and starts playing only to go black during commercials and not come back and phone goes to sleep. Other times the video plays and and freezes sound still going but nothing on the screen till phone once again goes to sleep. CA Technologies please fix this app I wasn't to continue to use it daily! New update.....video plays now almost Everytime I tap watch TV (had to resign in) however while I'm watching if I get an alert or alarm goes off or text comes in I lose sound on the app have to kill the app completely (double click and slide it off) go back and open and back to the news which I've now completely missed what I wanted to hear :-( still not right someone get this thing going soon!
This is dangerous!
by Troopie on 2020/08/11 20:57
I’m sorry, but this is NOT the News. Whether you’re looking to be educated about an issue or just catch up on current events, you won’t get either w/ Fox, unfortunately. I’d rather hear an unbiased telling of events that lets ME decide what I think (and THEN refer to Fox or PBS and other stations as needed)—don’t tell me the news through just one point of view—it automatically leaves me biased and less informed! The level of bias is not just insane, it’s dangerous. I want to be able to have real conversations about current events. It’s dangerous to think you’re informed if this is your only source. Similarly, CNN and msNBC are biased to the left, which may similarly irritate some viewers. The News needs to be unbiased in order to give you the whole story, rather than telling you what to think! I highly recommend PBS News Hour where they do a STELLAR job of giving you the news without adding bias, always presenting both sides, etc. It is quite calming to simply hear the facts with different perspectives fairly presented rather than always having news filtered thru just one perspective. It allows me to engage w/ people and feel well informed rather than just stumble around in constant outrage.
The problems with this app are ASTRONOMICAL
by Miapia158 on 2020/07/29 13:59
I love reading the news. Love it. I love staying informed and discussing topics, so I downloaded Fox News to expand my knowledge on what is being reported. But first let me start with this app took almost an HOUR to load. It took so long, that I forgot I downloaded it, and then when I clicked on to finally read the news, it crashed. Every time. I tried like 6 times to enter the app and it just kept crashing. I thought it was my phone, even though I just got a new one, because it couldn’t be Fox News as they are reliable and trustworthy. So I restarted my phone and then clicked the app again and it crashed and turned off my iPhone?! So I turned my phone on (thank god I have a newer phone because I am reading that people with older phones had to get new phones) and I deleted the app. Then I re-downloaded it and my battery dropped 20%. I tried to open it and it crashed and I noticed my battery dropped 10%. This app has been detrimental to my phone and not to mention, I had to delete so many photos to download it because it requires so much storage. Honestly, I don’t know if it’s worth the download considering the damage it does to your phone.
News app and content
by Worse each upgrade on 2018/07/22 13:59
I have been an avid reader of a Fox News on my phone for years, but I find this latest version the most disappointing to date. Perhaps I am not using it properly, but one used to be able to select categories of news such as ‘World News’, etc.; today it’s only what you select for users to be able to see, read, or hear. My disappointment is in both format and content. The app loads slower than any other news app I have, and the content seems much more ‘entertainment’ and ‘editorial’ than actual news. Big disappointment. I never thought I would come to the point of only reluctantly opening Fox News, and if I am in a hurry I don’t open it at all. I used to check it multiple times a day, which clearly both you and your advertisers goals for revenue reasons; I’m guessing I am not the only Fox fan that has been visiting much less frequently. I opened recently an unsupported version of a Fox News app on one of my old iPhones and saw how it was far superior to several of the most current upgrades. Please again be a news organization; each ‘upgrade’ seems more disappointing than the previous in both content and functionality.
absolutely do not recommend
by dinolollipop on 2020/07/25 17:57
with all of the recent events going on i wanted to be kept updated on what was going on in the world and our country and so i had downloaded the fox news app in hopes that it would keep me updated with unbiased and reliable news, but i got the EXACT opposite. to start off the app would completely drain my battery life and when i first tried to open the app it froze and i had to shut down my phone to get out of the app. then on my second try i actually was able to browse through. as i was reading some articles i was disappointed to see how biased fox news is. some of the headlines had been extremely exaggerated and many of the things that were said in the articles weren’t even accurate. i did my own research on certain topics only to find out that fox news had completely twisted the story and immensely exaggerated the story. the app is equivalent to using wikipedia for a college essay. there are many other problems regarding the app and news source but i would like to keep this short and concise. i really do hope that this app gets taken down so that citizens like myself do are not mislead by an incredibly unreliable news source.
Very Dissatisfied
by reviewer karen on 2020/08/13 16:10
I was super excited to see what was going on in this app but for some reason I have struggled to open it. It takes forever to load upon reopening and I have no clue how to fix it. Every other app I have works fine so it isn’t my device. However, the problems don’t stop there. Once the app finally opens I cannot seem to find the real news, some of the information appears a bit off. Perhaps some of the facts and context in the articles are just not loading for me. On top of all of this, I have experienced battery drainage while using the app. Even when I tried it on my iPad the battery almost died while loading the app with a 47% charge. From the reviews it appears that many others are having a similar problem. I was hoping this would be a reliable source, but with these issues loading correct content I suppose I was mistaken. I hate to see so many people relying on a less than stable source for their news. This app experience made it very clear to me that Fox News doesn’t really care about the people consuming their content. I guess if I want accurate, up to date news I’ll be going back to the Associated Press and New York Times.
A Review from Professional SW Developer
by dradosta on 2020/07/22 19:46
Hello, as a software developer (who has working in app development in particular) knows a terrible app when I see one. One of the things they drill into your brain especially when you’re trying to make your own app is to NEVER take up too much battery. Your consumers will figure it out and then delete the app. So logically one factor I use to determine an app’s quality is the effect is has on my battery life. This app has basically given my phone battery cancer. I used to go at minimum an entire work day with my new iPhone before my battery would even come close to 20%. Now when I open the Fox News App, it will go from 81% to 21% after only a couple of hours. The biggest thing that turned my attention to it being the fault of this app was that my phone was working perfectly fine beforehand. I am very careful about the kinds of things i download onto my phone, and this was the only thing i have downloaded in the last couple of weeks! I have since removed the app and I am now hoping that my battery will restore itself to normal. Note to any young developers out there: please make sure clear your cache periodically!
Fox News Killer of battery life
by plexy10 on 2020/07/22 18:12
I wanted a quick and easy way to acquire news on the go but as I have downloaded the app the phone’s battery drains at a significantly higher rate. I believe this is due to the large amount of embedded links within the articles. Not to mention I was fairly disappointed in the articles lack of sources I’m the type of gal who loves to read the source to better my understanding of the entire situation. In addition the graphics are rather outdated and feel clunky and squared despite all phones being rounded. It makes the app undesirable and appear unfit to be an app in the App Store, which I have deemed to only have apps of the upmost quality. In addition to this, there seems to be some sort of lag when scrolling and clicking. Sometimes it gets so severe the screen will freeze and more often than not my phone’s other functions such as exiting to the app are null. I hope that this will be fixed in the near future but for now as to not cause further damage to my phone I will be deleting the app. Overall I am fairly disappointed and if even everything was to be fixed I am quite skeptical of opening my doors to Fox News again.
an awful disappointment
by shhdjskfj on 2020/08/03 15:02
Ok so i got this app thinking i was gonna get some real news. but the app took forever to download, i just thought it was a problem with my phone so i let it download overnight. In the morning it still hadn't downloaded and i was getting pretty upset. i still waited though. Eventually it downloaded but i still had to go through the trouble of logging in. The app kicked me multiple times. When i finally got in, i couldn't look at anything because to many adds were popping up. So i deleted it then re downloaded the app to see if it had less adds. They went away when i logged in but there was another problem. The app kept kicking me. I kept trying and after a couple of days it let me stay but then the worst happened. My phone started shutting off at random. At first i thought i just have an old phone, so i went to get iPhone 8. When i downloaded the app, the phone started crashing again. I deleted the app then my phone stopped crashing. It was the app, i'm not sure if the software is old or has a virus but i will never be using this app again. Please don't download for the sake of your phone and sanity.
This is just sad...
by hfejejsjsjs on 2020/07/25 00:45
Wow...okay..so where shall I begin? The whole point of me downloading this app was to get information from today’s society and what’s going on but...when I went to download it, it took about 30 minutes but when it finished I went to download a much bigger app and it downloaded quickly and this was shocking. However, I let it slide and continued on... but that was a mistake. When I got in it asked for the usual notification and such.. I put no yet I was still getting notifications. And when I went to press on an article that drew attention it crashed! So I reopened the app and looked for the article and clicked it once again... this happened 4 times. I got tired of this process so I decided to delete the app. When I held down on the app and pressed delete my phone completely crashed and didn’t turn on for an hour...once it turned on I tried again this time it didn’t turn on for a whole day. At this point I was very furious... thinking to myself why is A NEWS APP crashing my phone???!??!?! I had to go to the Apple store and get my phone repaired all because one app. This is insane I’m giving it one star because I can’t give it zero.
Phone crashed due to app.
by Mickason on 2020/07/22 05:46
I’ve had this app for a week or so, to stay updated, because Im not really home to watch tv like that. At first it was nice, I got to check the news before work, then I started noticing problems. My phone started to get these very weird glitches while I used the app, I tried turning my phone off/on and deleting/downloading the app again. Nothing happened, that only seem to make matters worst! It was fine again, when I opened the newly downloaded app, but then it started up again. I tried to look past it, maybe it was a bug in the app and they were going to send a update soon. So I waited and checked the app multiple times a day to try to get the currant news but I couldn’t get passed, a minute within opening the app, it glitched so bad. I hope they really fix this because as of yesterday, I tried to leave the app open to see, if the glitches would stop after awhile but boy was I wrong. It only over heated my phone! I deleted the app and my phone is back to normal, I even went into Apple and they saw nothing wrong, so it had to be the app. Hopefully this is fixed soon. Hopefully this doesn’t happen to anyone else!
HORRIBLE APP 👎👎👎🚫
by emobcl on 2020/07/21 23:59
This app is literally the worst thing ever. I do not recommend getting this app because it gives VERY FAKE news and steals your personal information including : credit card numbers, ip addresses, and it is constantly watching you with the camera app. Even if you just want to get the app see for yourself, as soon as you open it, it infects your phone with many viruses that helps people on the dark web hack you. I have heard many horror stories about how this app targets people in real life once you have downloaded it and infects them with COVID-19. Please, for your own sake do not get this app and inform all of your friends and family not to. It also can access all of your social media accounts like Facebook, Instagram, and tiktok, and it makes fake accounts of you and tries to trick your family and friends into giving money or other personal information. Not to mention, if you have any type of online banking services like Venmo, cash app, etc., it can access them and give YOUR money away or take it for them selves. I am making this review strictly to warn others so they do not get scammed by this horrible app!!! 👎🏻👎🏼👎🏽👎🏾👎🏿
Too many hyperlinks
by Jamey Landry on 2019/10/25 07:05
News articles in the Fox News app have too many hyperlinks to other articles. It seems as though every sentence has a hyperlink in it. That may be fine for the desk top version where it is probably easier to avoid them, however, in this app it is difficult if not impossible to avoid the hyperlinks. Just by scrolling through the article as one reads it, the placement of links occur where one would naturally place one’s thumb in order to scroll the page down. Often, the link comprises the majority of a sentence in the app, equal to three or more lines on the page and thus, unavoidable. That, combined with the ad links that understandably appear on screen, makes for more time spent unintentionally switch back and forth from errant screens rather than reading the chosen article. The only thing more annoying than this is popups, but only just so. The excessive hyperlinks are bothersome and frequently point to backgrounders or old news articles- nothing helpful as the links seem to be intended. Annoying, to the point of not bothering to be bothered with the app.
Why the HELLO is going on??
by Bluemlstmtn on 2019/10/03 06:01
I’ve given Fox News a Great review previously, but can’t do it now! It’s always been the only News App I’ve trusted and the only one I have on my phone. I spend many hours a day on the App. However, after the last update (ios) and other recent changes, I’m going to do some major research for an alternative. 1. Wasting too much time trying to get back to the piece I was reading due to getting to close to one of your MANY BLUE words in an article. You don’t have to touch the word, just get close to it!!! 2. Why in the HELLO would you hire someone like Donna B. She sits there so high and mighty and condemns Republicans and our president while she admitted she gave Hillary the questions in advance, to debate questions. I wouldn’t expect you to hire a republican if they had done that for Trump! You might as well hired Rachael M.!!! 3. You still have a few REAL Journalists on your Team. Don’t do like several of your competitors and and end up with only Opinionists(if you will), and throw Journalism to the wind. There is always someone waiting in the Wing to become #1. Please get back on track.
Very slow
by A2Z BEST on 2020/07/21 23:54
The app is extremely slow and drains my battery. I tried it on a different device as my phone is fairly old and has had its fair share of damage but it was no use, I’d come to the conclusion the app was causing the battery drainage at such an alarmingly fast rate. I would go from 50% to 20% in a matter of 20-30 minutes! This is including trying to switch my phone to low power mode! These app developers really need to take a look at the way the app runs and make some changes! For now I will just continue to get my news from other outlets but I do hope this issue gets fixed. I addition to the battery drainage issues I have also noticed the app itself runs incredibly slow and I can barely get my morning information from it! I usually go in the app in the morning and evening after work but because of how little free time I have I don’t have the time to wait on the app to load. In conclusion the battery drainage the app cause in addition to the slowness of the app really lowered any other expectation I had for it, therefore leading me to rate this petty 1 star rating. Again I do hope these issues to get fixed!
Come on Fox News . . .you can do better
by Hopelessly Found on 2020/05/29 12:23
From the only News Source in which I have some amount of trust I am sorely disappointed in this app. I constantly check it for on-going news and if I am an avid Fox News fan and am frustrated with it, one can imagine how a casual fan will not even bother to use it. The actual written news is great and gets five stars but no photos in actual articles. The photos above the news item links, which I want to see closer up, are not even available in the news article itself. Video clips are the most frustrating. There are too many links in each story and I often have to click on several before finding the clip related to the story headlines. I rarely will watch videos, news videos, although I desire to do so, because of having to endure 15-45 second commercials for almost every video. I understand ads. but give me a break . . .no video is worth waiting through 45 seconds of a commercial. Maybe once but not every time you open a new video link. My time is too valuable and my life is fast paced. I would be willing to pay a subscription to get rid of ads.
Doesn’t accurately inform about what is going on
by JemJanie on 2020/07/22 06:39
In the news today Trump is bashed over and over again and I was hoping for a different perspective by downloading this app. What I’ve been reading has been extremely one sided and in some areas contradicts and confuses what was stated previously. Good reporters and journalist constantly re-evaluate their stances and I see none of that in this app. Everyone and everything seems set in stone and refuses to change. The articles always protect Trump even when he is very clearly being racist or sexist. I wish there were more facts and actual news stories about what is going on :/ I won’t keep this app because I’m not learning anything and just reading the writers and watching the reports bash anything and everything that is in anyone against Trump. Not real news, bashes anything different. :( It doesn’t cover enough about what is going on outside of USA, I wish it would have a wider perspective on global news. Also it is very difficult to use and can’t find what you want/need to read/watch about. Wouldn’t recommend especially for people who need a more user friendly platform where they can learn.
Would Not Recommend Downloading
by yorksforlife on 2020/07/29 02:11
I downloaded this app to see more news about what is happening in the world. I wanted a reliable and unbiased source unlike other news apps. I had to delete many apps and photos to download this app while my storage was less the halfway full because it would not let me download it otherwise. After that, the app took ages to download unlike the other apps I download. The next day, the app was finally ready for me to open it, but it immediately kicked me out. I constantly tried again with the same results. I really wanted to use this app, so I did not give up. After trying for half of an hour, it let me stay in the app for a while. I read the news on the app, and decided to read more the next day. I had to go through the same struggle again after all of my hard work the previous day. I do not want to and will not continue using this app. I'm reading the reviews while typing this, and I am frightened that my whole phone will glitch! I am deleting the app and reading other news articles because this struggle is not worth it. I recommend you do not download this app. 😢
Took forever to download and keeps crashing
by Neha ahmed on 2020/07/25 01:54
I downloaded this app so I could get quick news updates from a reliable source, but was disappointed on what I got. First thing first, this app took ages to download. I even tried cancelling the download and redownloading it but it didn’t help. Now you may think it was because of my WiFi, but I asked my friends with different WiFi networks to download it too, and they experienced the same issue. It did eventually end up installing, but I’d say it took at least 30-35 minutes. Upon opening the app immediately crashed, I thought it was just a glitched so went ahead and tried to reopen it, though it crashed again. At this point I was just frustrated. It did open for about a few seconds and I was able to scroll through it, but then the same issue happened again. I didn’t know if it was just an issue with my phone (iPhone XR), so I asked my family to try it on their phones and it didn’t work either; took 20-30 minutes to dowload and kept crashing too. Overall this is a terrible app and I will be moving to a new news app for my updates. Don’t download.
Latest update is too touch-sensitive
by thebillkenny on 2019/10/07 17:25
I enjoy and appreciate Fox News but The app needs work. First of all, the latest update is so touch sensitive that I can’t just stroll through an article anymore without triggering a link to another page. It’s really frustrating when I’m trying to read an article and I use my finger to scroll down the page, suddenly the app jumps to another page and I have to click the back arrow to return to the original article. Also, I understand the need to include show biz fluff but those stories should not be on the same page as real news. I mean, you might have a story about war, another about impeachment, and then comes a story about how great some 50 year old actress looks in her bikini selfies on Instagram. Really? I know click bait is important for revenue, but it cheapens your brand. Keep the show biz stuff in the show biz section. Finally, a huge frustration is when I click on a story that supposedly contains a video, but the video is nowhere to be found on the page! Drives me crazy. The more these frustrations mount, the less likely I am to continue using the app. Please fix. Thanks!
DON’T DOWNLOAD, BAD APP
by urbsuccheuvloveit on 2020/08/03 20:34
I downloaded this app to keep up to date with everything that’s happening. When I downloaded this app it would not let me change the language to English, and it was stuck in German! I then deleted the app and re downloaded it, luckily it was in English this time. Expect it was telling me false news and news from the past! At first I didn’t notice but then when I saw the news on T.V. I was quite disappointed to see that it was not the same in any way. It was telling me about news from years ago, I’m pretty sure it was stuck in 2001. So again I deleted the app and re downloaded it, but again there where more problems! It was stuck in a different language again and was stuck in something like 2003 news again, and on top of it all it kept asking me to buy many items for some reason!? Random pop ups would appear and I almost bought random stuff with Touch ID because my finger was on the home button. I don’t know if this is happening with anyone else, but if it is then just delete the app. You need to fix these glitches before more and more people start getting them to!
FOX NEWS App
by Marvs2 on 2020/11/08 08:29
Why is there no ability to comment on articles on your website? E.g., I don’t find an option for commenting on the Anderson Cooper article. Do you not want feedback? More importantly, what’s happening to FOX News editorial policy? I used to admire and respect FOX as a good conservative news source. Lately you’ve hired a bunch of really liberal story casters who have seriously changed the FOX image - Donna Brazile, Walter Williams, Chris Wallace ! Combine that with the great people you’ve gotten rid of (or “let go”) and you become just one more blasé member of the hated MSM. No longer anything special. I’ve largely switched to NewsMAX for unbiased reporting. Now with your left leaning coverage of the election, your adulation of the Harris/Biden party, and your loss of Judge Janine - one of your brightest stars! - I would guess that your next step will be to replace Greg Gutfeld and The Five with Jimmy Kimmel! I think my switch to NewsMAX is now complete! Sorry, but I don’t need any more mindless liberal propaganda! I assume these changes are all being driven by big-money sponsors & owners, which is a sad testament to the current state of the news industry!
bad quality

as soon as i opened the app it crashed, i had to delete and redownload a couple times before i could actually get in. everything was scattered all over the place, i didn’t like the set up and it was just messy. i don’t recommend bc i’ve noticed how bias fox news is and it’s not getting both sides to certain topics, we need more news coverage that talks about both sides of the story bc people are all getting brainwashed on topics they only know half the story to. we need people to try and help make the world a better place not try to make their opinion/view correct. The next generation needs to be able to fix this stigma, and be more independent, people need to be more open minded, and not as greedy and feel the need to make everything about hatred. Cmon i thought the world was better than this, as a teenager i’m disappointed in the world and i hope things change once the next generation takes positions of power. We know we can’t change the stubborn views of the old close minded people, who only care about money. So all we can do is hope one day when they’re gone things will change.
Horrible and uge dissapointment
by DansForTrump on 2020/08/04 15:30
I downloaded the Fox News app to avoid fake news but by golly it’s flooded with fake news and fake stats. If you weren’t already aware, this is labeled as an “entertainment channel” not a news channel! 😧 I wanted an app for reliable, timely, unbiased news and ✨NEWS FLASH✨ this is the EXACT opposite of what I was expecting. Not to mention that the app disabled my phone for 12 HOURS!❌📱 I tried several times to open the app but it kept returning me to the home screen. On my 4th and final attempt it said I could not use my phone for 12 hours!? How else was u supposed to stay up to date with the president’s twitter without my phone!? Good thing I have my iPad mini, it miraculously worked there but it was very slow and hard to navigate with phat fingers 👇even on an iPad mini. I had to open twitter on my daughter’s laptop💻. I had Fox News on in the background and I kept hearing LIES AND FAKE NEWS!? I was absolutely, T totally shocked, I heard them making up stats that had no correlation or causation. They were comparing two things that made no sense together! 0/10 will no longer be listening to Fake News 🤢
Crashed!
by ddy issuez on 2020/07/22 19:08
I first downloaded this app because my cousin’s niece’s fiancé’s German Shepard’s trainer told me it was a reliable news outlet. I downloaded it three years ago and completely forgot. Since then my phone has been getting hot for no reason. And I get multiple emails from Fox News. They steal your information and use it to get more views. That’s ridiculous! How does apple condone this sort of behavior? I found out yesterday that I had to replace my phone because it crashed from all 25,683,389 u opened emails from Fox News. I have to settle for my Gucci toilet and write this review on here for now. I get my new phone in 3 hours when they finish backing up all my information. But I was curious. What did Fox new want to tell me from the emails? So I open the email. And I saw some inappropriate pictures of my daughter’s favorite tv show, good luck Charlie. I did more investigative work and all 25,683,389 emails were about the same thing. What if my daughter opened this and saw it? I mean sure, she’s 45. But I still dont want her seeing such provocative behavior. Anyways, I’d give it a zero star if I could. This is a terrible app overall.
Problems with Fox News
by Cori Mae on 2020/07/22 09:22
Ok, so with all the coronavirus stuff going on, I wanted to get an app to help me stay informed and see what other news stations were making of it. After scrolling through some articles, I noticed that many of them would take you to OTHER articles. Ok, I thought, it’s fine their just... showing their sources. Next, I noticed that it was rapidly draining my battery. Usually that’s a big no for me, but I know that it can be fixed. Moving on. I then decided to watch one of the videos (it took forever to load) with Tucker Carlson. My little cousin was in the room with me and well, Tucker ended up saying some things that an 8-year old child should not hear, especially if that child is raised as an accepting Christian (which me and my whole family are). I tried to leave the video but it wouldn’t respond. I plugged in some headphones and waited it out. And that brought me to my conclusion. Fox News does nothing but keep people misinformed and constantly shows off their racist and bigoted views that is clearly hate speech. Don’t download this if you value the good air God created for you to breath.
Used to love this app, now....not so much.
by DOQuinn on 2019/10/14 23:00
The changes made with the last couple updates really make your app tough to navigate. My biggest problem is all the embedded links within a story. I click on the story headline to read it in more detail and have to literally mindfully avoid all the embedded headlines of headlines that should be closely related to the current story but sometimes there is only a word or two or a name that ties it. Here’s an idea. Take them out of the body of the story and put them all at the end. Then if we wanted to read more we could continue, but if we don’t then it won’t hinder our reading experience. I can’t tell you how many times while trying to scroll, through what should only be a few paragraphs of reading but becomes several pages because of large embedded text of links to other stories or videos I have no interest in watching, I have accidentally touched one of them and have to hit back and then reread to find my place again. It is getting so I am seeking my news elsewhere. Please fix it.
Gets worse with each update
by J.C.Stone on 2020/12/28 17:35
Don’t get me wrong I like Fox News, it’s just that lately each time the update the app something else gets broken. I am conflicted between waiting to see if things actually get fixed or they break something else. Unfortunately I don’t think they read these. 1. Lists are not displayed. Often articles indicate there is some list to follow and nothing is there. Going onto the website you can see the numbered or bulleted list. Evidently the app doesn’t like to bring in <ul> tags. 2. Pictures are not displayed. When an article is supposed to be showing a group of pictures-i.e. Pictures of the Week, only the first two pictures are ever displayed. The rest are blank, not even the accompanying text description. 3. Too many “See it” articles don’t show what it is you are supposed to be seeing. There are articles that are prefaced with “See it” or something similar, leading one to infer that there will be a picture to see. Most the time there is nothing but text. These all used to work just fine. Please fix them.
Bad horrible app broke my phone
by popa deb on 2020/08/19 13:43
I’m part of the baby boomer population and this app is absolutely bad for our generation! It took almost two hours to download when most apps on my phone only take a couple seconds! It also started to crash my phone after I opened it. I went on to Facebook to make a post asking if anyone knew what to do but it kicked me out of that too! Even my nephew, who is very technologically advanced, couldn’t figure it out. I also always read the terms and conditions before using an app and I am shocked by what I saw. First of all it told me that I was going to have all of my google searches and history stored in the app! Second it said that all my old photos would be deleted if there wasn’t enough space on my phone for the app. Two days later I took my phone to the atnt store to look at it. My battery was dying constantly and my photos of my grandchildren were being deleted. The phone fixers told me that the Fox News app gave me a virus on my phone! I was unaware that it and sent out those ugly spam emails to my friends from church! Thank the lord it all stopped after I deleted the app! -Debby Holden
tremendously disappointed
by donjald trump on 2020/08/08 05:37
i downloaded this app so i could receive updates on my fantastic president. however i was TREMENDOUSLY disappointed. i was told that this app was gonna be HUGE. but i've been disappointed before and when i compare my disappoint now to my disappointment before i tell you what it's not even comparable. i personally think that CHJINA is to blame. they must have hacked my phone because i saw no good stories on donald. or perhaps maybe my phone has been corrupted by SOCIALISM. socialism is very dangerous. i've seen danger before and i know that danger is as dangerous as that. however my phone was not corrupt by CHJINA or SOCIALISM before downloading this app. it must be linked to app. i've seen a lot of terrific apps in my day and when i compare this app to the terrific apps that i know and love there is a HUGE difference. i know that all media is completely fake and corrupt no matter what it is trying to tell you it is WRONG. even if the news is right i can assure you that it is wrong. my president (the orange donald trump) was as always right. please mr trump protect from this news that i can only describe as HORRID and a HOAX.
The app keeps crashing and draining my battery!
by hihihi12345) on 2020/07/22 20:07
I downloaded this app to be my primary source of news. At first the app worked good enough ( I could get all my news without the app crashing or my battery draining). However, recently the app will crash at least twice before actually working. Most of the time, I will click on the app and my phone will freeze for a couple seconds and then the app will crash. Like I said before this happens at least twice before I can finally get into the app. I have also noticed that whenever I use the app my battery drains by 15-20%! I wouldn’t have an issue with this if it was only 5%, but the app drains my phone battery so much that I can only use the app when my phone is at 100% battery. I want to be able to use this app; however, unless this app is fixed I WILL NOT use it! I should not have to deal with my phone constantly crashing and my battery being drained every time I want to keep up with the news or read an article. Unless this app is fixed, It NEEDS to be taken down before it causes serious damage to a users phone!
Not a very good app to many lags and crashes 0/10 would not recommend downloading.
by Daneyupshae on 2020/07/29 13:38
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been using the app but from the start there were many crashes and when I would try to tap on certain settings the app would freeze and I wouldn’t be able to click on anything. I had also been experiencing lag on my phone when I was off the app, or if the app was still running in my background. And another time I was using the app it was worse. It completely crashed my phone. “Why?” I have no idea but I know for sure that it was this app because when I had finally got my phone fixed, it was the only app that was missing from my phone. All of my other apps were still there perfectly fine. I have made sure that my phone didn’t have any connection with this app because I didn’t want anymore lags or crashes to happen a couple days ago, and I can say that my phone is working smoothly and there are no glitches at all. Until someone can fix this app, you will not have my vote. Thank you, but no thank you. Have a good day.
Horrible App Full of Bugs (or worse)
by AnikaandAj on 2020/08/14 05:55
This is the worst app I’ve ever downloaded. And I use downloaded in the lowest sense, because it took over an hour to actually download. Before that it would just stop and start on it’s own. I’ve never seen anything like it. Once I finally got it open, it was unusable because it kept quitting or jumping to the top of the article so I couldn’t actually read anything. I don’t know if this is just a bug, a coding issue, or potentially data hacking I’ve been seeing so much about. I asked around and everybody I know has been having app trouble, even those who’ve had the app downloaded for ages. I asked my nephew to check if it’s something wrong with my phone (he studies Computer Science at FSU) and he couldn’t figure it out, but said it’s probably safer to delete the app to protect from a virus or data breach. Now, I don’t know what the hell other reviewers are talking about with some Gen Z thing (unlike them, I actually have a job) but I’m not the only one having these issues. Until they get their app together and fix their app, I would suggest steering clear of this horrible app.
Way too much information!
by Ranger Giff on 2018/03/31 15:16
Way too much information on way too many minor stories. It is now like reading something at the check out at the grocery store. Old app was far better. Come on Fox keep the high ground and don’t get in the ditch with the other new networks. Fox was by far my “go to” for news. Now I rather go to CNN. I don’t have time to try to wade through so many worthless stories. Just put the old app next to this new one and you can see the stark differences. I am almost at the point of deleting it! Keep your site updated. There are three day old stories still on the site. They are mixed up with current stories. You have to “hunt and pick” to find current news. Loved the old app. This version is a total waste of my time. I want my news quick and dirty and not have to waste a great deal of time trying to find real news. Download the app News and see how it manages keeping new news at the top and divides the news into various sections that you can choose to put on your home page instead of having to switch between topics as on your menu.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!
by 🧚‍♀️🤪🤩🥰🧚‍♀️✨💖🧚‍♀️ on 2020/07/22 16:29
this app is absolute garbage! I wish I could give it zero stars because that’s what it deserves Whenever I get a notification from it my whole phone gets glitchy it also uses so much of my battery! This app took around 3 hours for it to download, definitely not worth the wait...almost every time I open the app my cat throws up, and honestly I don’t blame her, I get a little nauseous myself every time I open the app and see that cheeto puff lookin bunker boy, Donald trump🤢🤢 after all that I decide to delete the app off my phone, you’d think it would be done and stop there right? WRONG, some people from Fox News headquarters shows up at my house in the middle of the night and stabbed my dog, mr. Charles Wilfred III, to death(rip boy I miss you every day 😪) but not only did Fox News headquarters kill my dog but they cooked him up and put him in a soup!! It was the most horrific day of my life. It’s because of them I can’t eat soup anymore I CANT EVEN LOOK AT IT😓😓 it’s been hard but hopefully it will get better:(( again don’t get the app unless u want ur dog killed and never want to eat soup again.

Tucker Carlson I have watched now for over 5 years and see no end in sight, why? I believe in the balance and depth of our news reporting. I’m sure and have researched Carlson the person and have listened closely to the limited personal opinion shared and or expressed. I respect anyone’s need to be heard or express their beliefs but expect my news to be given with factual evidence ,in depth analysis presented with balance from multiple opinions from proven and qualified opinions. Thank you to Carlson for his professionalism and genuine passion to shine the light on all the information and facts no matter where the factual declared destination brings us . Words matter and truth is demanded of all who present news and firmly expect the highest standards of all who report to the America I love. Continued success , and never waiver nor surrender doing your work - it’s your God given responsibility and I expect nothing less from your profession! We are all listening , emotionally being lifted up and totally destroyed by every single word - In conclusion, Tucker I demand you stay focused , determined , present the facts with journalistic integrity the days news - God is watching us all, and America to be respected , honored and treasured. My devastation and despair is journalism has died and what we have been left with will destroy the place I call home, our America.
HORRIBLE APP
by Prisys 😇😬👳👮👷💂 on 2020/07/23 03:45
I originally got this app to keep up with the news since there has been so much going on lately. However this app took quite a while to download. Once it was finally done it started to make my phone crash and glitch. I exited the app then went back to it to see if it would work, but it didn’t. I decided just to deal with it’s glitchy ness and carry on to look through the app, and a few minutes in I realized that what was my fully charged phone was now only at 20%. I went to get my charger so my phone doesn’t die, but even when I had plugged it in several minutes later it had only charged 4%. On top of all that it also took up soooooo much storage. I had tried to get another app however it said I couldn’t because my storage was completely full😦. It was horrible!! So after all that I decided to delete it and once it was deleted it was all fixed up. I very disappointed in this app it should be fixed IMMEDIATELY. So in conclusion do not get this app it will mess up your phone while you have it. Thank you, I hope this helped. ✨💋👹
Turning off All Network News
by Har100 on 2019/03/19 13:54
I have been a loyal Fox News viewer for many years. Since I’m retired, I tend to watch Fox News more than most. I am retired military and my political views are conservative, pro gun, pro life, strong immigration law enforcement, America first and most importantly, get God back on our side. We have a president that is trying to do this but the media, including Fox, are doing their best to destroy this man. Recently, I have seen political correctness encroaching across all Fox shows (Hannaty being the only exception). I really don’t recognize our country anymore. The rhetoric I hear about socialism, anti-American values, reparations, open borders, eliminating the death penalty, killing newborn babies, Congress members shouting “impeach the MF” and swearing in members of congress without the standard oath of office. There are many more but I’m out of breath. Yes, I’m an old white guy whose time, and values, is close to its expiration date. I will die worried about the America that my Grandkids and Great Grandkids will have to fight for. Doubtlessly, it will, at some point come to a fight. Back to my original point/thought——I’m done with Fox News.
0/10 DO NOT DOWNLOAD
by Manny's left kneecap on 2020/07/26 10:22
So I downloaded this app not too long ago just for news and the like, and everything was going well up until about a week ago, when I noticed the app started lagging pretty badly. I didn’t think much of it at first, and just assumed it was my poor internet connection, but after a while, the app started having some pretty severe visual glitches, such as lines across the screen and distorted color. This was pretty concerning, so I decided to delete the app, power off my phone, and then reinstall it again in hopes of fixing the glitches. Unfortunately, it only got worse, as videos would no longer load at all, and it started to occasionally crash. After that, I decided to give the app a few days and maybe it would just go back to normal, but much to my dismay, when I tried to open the app this morning, it would just load for a couple seconds, and then crash. I don’t know what to say other than this app has become completely unusable for me, and I cannot give anything more than 0/10 to an app that does not work.
