I love this app. It keeps me updated with my home town sports. I currently don’t live in SF. I can watch local sports updates. Thanks GO NINERS!!!WARRIORS!!!GIANTS!!!
What a terrible app
by Bts2173662773 on 2019/12/18 16:44
Adds are bad enough but every 3rd or 4th news item is sponsored content and the same ad apoerars multiple times. Had enough so deleting this app and finding a better source for news.

I Love KRON4
by Arlene2 on 2019/11/06 17:29
I so appreciate getting local news and at a very reasonable subscription price. However I find it difficult to negotiate my way around the app. I’ll get a news flag on my front screen and it does not open to that article directly & it is not necessarily intuitive where to look for it. Also, I’m not sure if it’s the app or my phone but the videos time out so I don’t use them. Regardless, thank you KronOn!
Sound?
by JLisaJ on 2019/11/04 15:48
Good coverage, but accompanying sound for videos seems hit or miss. This isn’t a problem with my ABC 7 app or other news apps, so not sure what’s going gonna with the KRON app.
Mahalo!
by shellsurf on 2019/10/31 13:17
KRON does a great job of broadcasting the latest Fire & evacuation info during wildfires. This BayA Native is able to monitor & share info with loved ones on social media from my iPad on Maui. Friends in NorCal can download app & watch when the power is out if they have cell coverage or wi-fi. Great community service! Highly recommended and appreciated.
Try Harder
by Accountable237 on 2019/10/30 03:10
To put it simply this station sends alerts for breaking news that has already transpired. They also provide links to live coverage that are absolutely not live. It’s recorded and replayed throughout the day. This is deceptive and should be criminal. Just another business disguised and a public service.

Terribly unstable
by SF Muffintops on 2019/10/21 04:42
KRON4 News is great to watch on TV and I was looking forward to being able to catch stories from my phone. Since installing this recently, however, I can barely read a single story before the app crashes. Some articles won’t open at all - app just crashes. Pretty disappointing and useless.
**** 5 stars

For news, I depend on KRON, for up to the minute news! Thank you, all your updates! Also, Thanks for covering East Contra Costa County with traffic! 5 Stars
Notifications mysteriously keep reenabling
by Shawn c on 2019/10/15 02:58
The app is good for the most part, but once a week or so I notice that more and more non-important alerts keep popping up in my notifications. I go into the app, and, sure enough, alerts like “Trending Now” are reenabled automatically. I shut them all off except for “News Alerts” and the process repeats itself later. It’s getting very annoying. I’m still keeping an eye out for a better local news app that doesn’t spam me with superfluous notifications in attempts to harvest more clicks.

Good – plus a suggestion
by Janetfitz on 2019/10/02 11:53
Would be great if you could cover all the action going on in local town halls fighting the untested for health impacts 5G microwave radiation street antennae plan being forced upon us by the FCC. Interview Dr. Joel Moskowitz at UC Berkeley (Public Health) for starters.
Why bother
by Stooz on 2019/10/02 04:57
It’s basically a web experience with some junk wrapped around it. Not well designed. Video clips fail all the time. You are a SF Bay Area news station - would be great if you could tap into all the talent here and get a real app built that works.
Excessive alerts and constant crashes
by Sy 510 on 2019/10/02 00:27
What could be the best Bay Area news app is plagued by constant crashes.

Stories Not Available TOO QUICKLY
by Herbonly on 2019/09/24 17:18
Too often, in fact, most often when I open an alert on my cell about a news story posted that same day has already been removed. Very frustrating. It’s so frequent, I’ve learned to not even bother trying to access the story older than a day using the KRON app and look for the story elsewhere. It’s getting so bad I’m even thinking of even deleting the app.
Infomercials
by Robert31307 on 2019/09/15 15:28
Kron 4 has been my go to for news for years. The repetitive infomercials made we switch to channel 2
App needs work
by cake_mix on 2019/09/12 18:40
Really wish there were more customization options for notifications by topic or regions of the Bay Area. I get so many KRON4 notifications that aren’t relevant to what I need to know or care about. The app is also glitchy sometimes, such as the videos don’t play right, even if I’m connected to good WiFi.

I can’t afford to pay for this
by wewantfreenews on 2019/08/04 19:45
This is the best news in sf but now that we have to pay to see the news on the app it’s not so good. It should be free to the audience to community, they community has the right to know.
Very good

Video does not work
by Mrsjero on 2019/07/19 16:25
A few weeks ago the app stopped being able to play videos. I updated the app, still doesnt play videos. I can read the stories but cannot play the videos of the stories. Super frustrating.
Cancelling Option for Dan Mateo
by Morenowg on 2019/07/13 00:16
I do not understand why KRON is cancelling their alliance with the service provider that connects lower income people to KRON. Many can not afford the high prices of cable/Comcast/ Direct/etc. So they have to subscribe to lower tier services. Now KRON is cutting ties so these people will not be getting this news info. Why??
Local News

I like your local news. Every once in a while though, your liberalism comes through and it usually makes me change the channel.

Application is a perpetual glitch
by DianaPepe on 2019/07/02 13:28
It’s like an 80’s application, I’ve downloaded the app in my fire stick to watch the news but it gets stuck every 5 minutes and right now I have 30 minutes in silence watching the Traffic, is like a horror movie and I’ll be on it in 30 minutes when I start driving to work!
Traffic cams
by vaccccuuum on 2019/06/14 20:29
I like the app but like on the traffic cameras like bay bridge toll plaza and stuff like that how come they are still images why aren’t they like a live video like how they are when. They show them on the news on tv ? Can you please update that? Now why should I have to subscribe just to live stream the news that’s just ridiculous!! Now I give you two stars!
Drops connection constantly
by r sq on 2019/06/11 15:45
This app constantly stops while watching live news and also closes suddenly. Disappointing when I’m trying to watch the local news
Charging Fees..
by Salisbury DB on 2019/06/11 03:08
I have been a fan of Kron for years, especially when traveling on the road. Now that you guys charge a fee for live feed, thumbs down!!
Visuals don’t line up with sound
by missionminisf on 2019/06/10 03:49
Yet another day when none of what is on the screen is what is being presented verbally. And not just for a a few minutes- this lasts for beyond a reasonable amount. How can you be so slow to respond to a problem and have it happen over and over again. Really bad!
Decent app. Couple of fixes needed
by JoycieAnne on 2019/05/30 15:56
When PUSH notifications are sent ... MANY times the article isn’t even on the app/website yet. Don’t send notifications out, unless the story is available. It’s lame to click on it and then ... nothing. App is crashing — LOTS lately — on iOS.
Excellent (before)

They broke swiping - dang
by Tubbseritz on 2019/05/16 17:44
The app doesn't support swiping through the news reports. I need to go back to the front page and select the next article from there. I hope that isn't intentional because I really like this app and I use it all the time.

Ok
by sosososososaddd on 2019/05/05 01:03
The app itself is ok, but whoever writes the content should be embarrassed. Poor spelling and many typos, one day constant “breaking news” alerts and the next nothing, makes you wonder....

I have been a user of the KRON4 News App for nearly 2 years and now I’m forced to subscribe to news that is free?? I don’t even know if my family is safe in the flood areas of Guerneville. This is a ridiculous thing to have concerned families pay/subscribe for to find out if their loved ones are alive.

While visiting friends in Glen Ellen, I enjoyed watching your news program...it reminded me sooo much of our news station back in Hawaii....Because of that, and the fact that I had a great time in Northern California, I decided to add the app for KRON4 NEWS to both, my IPhone and IPad....that way I’ll always be connected in someway to the Bay Area and to my friends in Glen Ellen.
KRON 4 News App
by bsmittie on 2018/10/13 05:26
Overall a clean interface where I can get my daily “news fix at-a-glance.” Ads are not hovering all over the pages, unless you link deeper to other stories. It is frustrating when the news headlines main page dynamically refreshes itself. It hurts my eyeballs, as the headline I was just reading moved to another location on the page, and continues to move unless I click on it to read. Again, this KRON 4 app is good for a quick overview of the day’s headlines.

Say Whhhaaat???
by Vietwordworm on 2018/10/07 05:22
Whoever wrote the glorious info about your improvements needs to step out onto Market St and and under oath to tell the truth, watch someone try to use your app. Then that liar should be fired for perjury. How can you guys get any worse?!? First you won’t put up the scratch to stay an NBC affiliate and now we loyal KRON fans are given pig slop in the form of an app, not to mention the non professionals in San Jose.

I cannot believe you continue to air Dr Sonia’s segments after her business continues to have unethical, unprofessional and incompetent surgical procedures and takes no responsibility for the damage they cause! I was butchered during an Elite Mini Facelift and received inadequate care. Dr. Bansal actually scudded me for the Botched procedure! For both KRON4 and Elite MD it’s all about money, the money you get for airing her segments and the money they get for incompetent surgical procedures. Shame on you KRON 4 and Elite MD for their irresponsible service you provide!

I would have been a really good app but the live stream news is very buggy, it stops during the commercial but sometimes it won’t come back, and screen turns dark and won’t load anymore, every time they had an app update doesn’t seem to fix the problem.

by FanceeDiva on 2018/05/07 17:09
If I get an alert and I click on it I’m not taken directly to the article! What’s the point of the alert if you can’t go directly to the article to read it? And the article is hard to find! FRUSTRATING TO SAY THE LEAST!

The worst
by davidsanger on 2017/10/14 20:19
This is probably one of the worst apps out here. You can easily set it up to get alerts, but then when you try to actually watch the live stream they are alerting you to it simply does not work. When trying to get updates on the Napa fire I got a notification that there’s a Cal fire press conference but the app does not connect at all even with a perfect high-speed Internet connection The app ought to be scrapped and rewritten. Do not rely on it if you are trying to get any kind of news
Way too many ads
by Jessichu on 2017/10/14 15:48
This app is incredibly disappointing. We're trying to stay updated on the fires here in Sonoma county but get barraged with ads making it impossible to watch

However I find it difficult to negotiate my way around the app. I’ll get a news flag on my front screen and it does not open to that article directly & it is not necessarily intuitive where to look for it. Also, I’m not sure if it’s the app or my phone but the videos time out so I don’t use them. Regardless, thank you KronOn!
Great local news
by GreeneyedLady59 on 2018/05/09 02:36
I love KRON4 news. I watch it everyday and I’m so glad we can watch it on our devices. It gives me important updates on what’s going on locally and not local. When I can’t get to a tv I get it on my device. Thank you!!
The worst
by davidsanger on 2017/10/14 20:19
This is probably one of the worst apps out here. You can easily set it up to get alerts, but then when you try to actually watch the live stream they are alerting you to it simply does not work. When trying to get updates on the Napa fire I got a notification that there’s a Cal fire press conference but the app does not connect at all even with a perfect high-speed Internet connection The app ought to be scrapped and rewritten. Do not rely on it if you are trying to get any kind of news
Stories Not Available TOO QUICKLY
by Herbonly on 2019/09/24 17:18
Too often, in fact, most often when I open an alert on my cell about a news story posted that same day has already been removed. Very frustrating. It’s so frequent, I’ve learned to not even bother trying to access the story older than a day using the KRON app and look for the story elsewhere. It’s getting so bad I’m even thinking of even deleting the app.
Application is a perpetual glitch
by DianaPepe on 2019/07/02 13:28
It’s like an 80’s application, I’ve downloaded the app in my fire stick to watch the news but it gets stuck every 5 minutes and right now I have 30 minutes in silence watching the Traffic, is like a horror movie and I’ll be on it in 30 minutes when I start driving to work!

App needs work
by cake_mix on 2019/09/12 18:40
Really wish there were more customization options for notifications by topic or regions of the Bay Area. I get so many KRON4 notifications that aren’t relevant to what I need to know or care about. The app is also glitchy sometimes, such as the videos don’t play right, even if I’m connected to good WiFi.

Without a doubt the most informative news network for the bay area Xfinity stop broadcasting this news network in Fairfield I do not know why but it is a shame any big mistake
Cancelling Option for Dan Mateo
by Morenowg on 2019/07/13 00:16
I do not understand why KRON is cancelling their alliance with the service provider that connects lower income people to KRON. Many can not afford the high prices of cable/Comcast/ Direct/etc. So they have to subscribe to lower tier services. Now KRON is cutting ties so these people will not be getting this news info. Why??
Someone in Marketing Needs to Get A Grip
by Havadood on 2017/10/12 18:33
This app is horrible. Have been trying to stream from the East Coast to get updates on the fires as family and friends are in the line of fire in NoCa. This app keeps running the same 2 commercials for KRON 4 over and over and over and over again every few, very few, minutes. I mean over and over and over again. It is bizarre. Makes it unwatchable. What is their marketing department thinking?
Decent app. Couple of fixes needed
by JoycieAnne on 2019/05/30 15:56
When PUSH notifications are sent ... MANY times the article isn’t even on the app/website yet. Don’t send notifications out, unless the story is available. It’s lame to click on it and then ... nothing. App is crashing — LOTS lately — on iOS.
Thank You, KRON4 your superb!
by Miss goof on 2018/05/25 17:24
KRON4 is over the top in comparison with other Bay Area news stations! The immediate news coverage, and watching all the news reporters daily are the best! Thank you for all your dedication KRON4!
Local News

I like the app but like on the traffic cameras like bay bridge toll plaza and stuff like that how come they are still images why aren’t they like a live video like how they are when. They show them on the news on tv ? Can you please update that? Now why should I have to subscribe just to live stream the news that’s just ridiculous!! Now I give you two stars!

Living in Texas now after retiring when I lived In Oakland. This app keeps me connected with RAIDER COUNTRY. App is organized with lots of pictures. Live coverage with Gary and Darla and Pam. I miss their new casts. They are the best!!!!!
Say Whhhaaat???
by Vietwordworm on 2018/10/07 05:22
Whoever wrote the glorious info about your improvements needs to step out onto Market St and and under oath to tell the truth, watch someone try to use your app. Then that liar should be fired for perjury. How can you guys get any worse?!? First you won’t put up the scratch to stay an NBC affiliate and now we loyal KRON fans are given pig slop in the form of an app, not to mention the non professionals in San Jose.
Why doesn’t picture in picture work
by Markus2019 on 2018/06/06 03:13
Not a bad app but needs some work. It would be nice if they can get picture in picture to work.
Love KRON 4 news
by soulsis67 on 2018/06/06 04:04
I enjoy KRON 4 news, it keeps me abreast with daily news and when there is just in news, I get the minute to minute updates.
Use First
by Hd2nv on 2019/03/16 23:27
Have used Channel 4 for years. News is accurate and up to the minute,
Terribly unstable
by SF Muffintops on 2019/10/21 04:42
KRON4 News is great to watch on TV and I was looking forward to being able to catch stories from my phone. Since installing this recently, however, I can barely read a single story before the app crashes. Some articles won’t open at all - app just crashes. Pretty disappointing and useless.
**** 5 stars
by Rivertown Kid Rosie on 2019/10/17 12:55
For news, I depend on KRON, for up to the minute news! Thank you, all your updates! Also, Thanks for covering East Contra Costa County with traffic! 5 Stars
Sound?
by JLisaJ on 2019/11/04 15:48
Good coverage, but accompanying sound for videos seems hit or miss. This isn’t a problem with my ABC 7 app or other news apps, so not sure what’s going gonna with the KRON app.
Video does not work
by Mrsjero on 2019/07/19 16:25
A few weeks ago the app stopped being able to play videos. I updated the app, still doesnt play videos. I can read the stories but cannot play the videos of the stories. Super frustrating.
Visuals don’t line up with sound
by missionminisf on 2019/06/10 03:49
Yet another day when none of what is on the screen is what is being presented verbally. And not just for a a few minutes- this lasts for beyond a reasonable amount. How can you be so slow to respond to a problem and have it happen over and over again. Really bad!
Very buggy
by Zapbanana on 2018/06/27 13:39
I would have been a really good app but the live stream news is very buggy, it stops during the commercial but sometimes it won’t come back, and screen turns dark and won’t load anymore, every time they had an app update doesn’t seem to fix the problem.
Good source for local Bay Area news
by Karl Chen34 on 2019/10/11 05:13
I like the app gives me good local news
I hate it!!!
by Snpy0284 on 2017/09/13 13:40
I hate the new update!! I used to love the last version before this new update. I loved that I can watch the news live from my phone with no issues. Now, every 5 seconds a stupid ad pops up and I can't even watch the news while I'm getting ready. Bring back the old version!
Why bother
by Stooz on 2019/10/02 04:57
It’s basically a web experience with some junk wrapped around it. Not well designed. Video clips fail all the time. You are a SF Bay Area news station - would be great if you could tap into all the talent here and get a real app built that works.
Try Harder
by Accountable237 on 2019/10/30 03:10
To put it simply this station sends alerts for breaking news that has already transpired. They also provide links to live coverage that are absolutely not live. It’s recorded and replayed throughout the day. This is deceptive and should be criminal. Just another business disguised and a public service.
Good – plus a suggestion
by Janetfitz on 2019/10/02 11:53
Would be great if you could cover all the action going on in local town halls fighting the untested for health impacts 5G microwave radiation street antennae plan being forced upon us by the FCC. Interview Dr. Joel Moskowitz at UC Berkeley (Public Health) for starters.
Subscription?
by n1X_rAY_82901517 on 2019/02/28 01:58
I have been a user of the KRON4 News App for nearly 2 years and now I’m forced to subscribe to news that is free?? I don’t even know if my family is safe in the flood areas of Guerneville. This is a ridiculous thing to have concerned families pay/subscribe for to find out if their loved ones are alive.
Marketing renders the app useless
by B8con on 2017/10/04 14:37
Between the constant advertisements, random pop ups and other marketing techniques this tool has become one of the most frustrating news apps I have ever witnessed. I would almost be willing to pay very small nominal price to mitigate the barrage of marketing.

Great on site reporting. Look forward to seeing the news as soon as it happens. Keep it up.
What was wrong with the old app?
by AppreciateAGoodApp on 2017/09/16 16:31
The font of the body of the article is way too narrow and faint to read for any amount of time. When reading at night the videos load unexpectedly, are way too loud, and wake up the one sleeping next to you! Can't wait for the next version.

by Bts2173662773 on 2019/12/18 16:44

by shellsurf on 2019/10/31 13:17
KRON does a great job of broadcasting the latest Fire & evacuation info during wildfires. This BayA Native is able to monitor & share info with loved ones on social media from my iPad on Maui. Friends in NorCal can download app & watch when the power is out if they have cell coverage or wi-fi. Great community service! Highly recommended and appreciated.

Notifications mysteriously keep reenabling
by Shawn c on 2019/10/15 02:58
The app is good for the most part, but once a week or so I notice that more and more non-important alerts keep popping up in my notifications. I go into the app, and, sure enough, alerts like “Trending Now” are reenabled automatically. I shut them all off except for “News Alerts” and the process repeats itself later. It’s getting very annoying. I’m still keeping an eye out for a better local news app that doesn’t spam me with superfluous notifications in attempts to harvest more clicks.

I have been a user of the KRON4 News App for nearly 2 years and now I’m forced to subscribe to news that is free?? I don’t even know if my family is safe in the flood areas of Guerneville. This is a ridiculous thing to have concerned families pay/subscribe for to find out if their loved ones are alive.
I’ll stick with KTVU
by OXF! on 2019/02/26 21:54
Don’t need to pay for 24/7 news I’ll stick with KTVU Good bye KRON app!

No point
by Jackx36 on 2019/02/22 01:14
Now that they’ve started charging for their live news, I have no need for this app.
Changed terms of use
by 4HerHer* on 2019/02/18 15:13
Now asks for information to keep watching or start a free 7 day trial. Always have to ruin a good app with greed. Deleted.
Charges
by Disgruntled Ex Viewer on 2019/02/18 14:19
What’s with the chargers to watch online? I won’t pay I’d rather watch a free bay area station online to watch the news. Don’t use this app
Fix it!
by BayAreaChick on 2019/02/12 14:06
This app is so buggy i cant even watch a live stream - FIX IT!

It’s a great luxury to watch streaming news on my laptop I’ve always enjoyed watching channel 4! Keep up the great work hey!
Always broken links and code showed no where text should be.
by nwatchorn on 2018/12/14 03:59
I am tired of getting notifications on stories only to see no information, a broken live newsfeed or a pile of code where the story should go. Cheap and unreliable app. Bugs everywhere.
Ok news

Absolutely the BEST News Program in the Bay Area!
by Ross from Hilo, Hawaii on 2018/10/26 22:34
While visiting friends in Glen Ellen, I enjoyed watching your news program...it reminded me sooo much of our news station back in Hawaii....Because of that, and the fact that I had a great time in Northern California, I decided to add the app for KRON4 NEWS to both, my IPhone and IPad....that way I’ll always be connected in someway to the Bay Area and to my friends in Glen Ellen.
KRON 4 News App
by bsmittie on 2018/10/13 05:26
Overall a clean interface where I can get my daily “news fix at-a-glance.” Ads are not hovering all over the pages, unless you link deeper to other stories. It is frustrating when the news headlines main page dynamically refreshes itself. It hurts my eyeballs, as the headline I was just reading moved to another location on the page, and continues to move unless I click on it to read. Again, this KRON 4 app is good for a quick overview of the day’s headlines.

by Vietwordworm on 2018/10/07 05:22
Whoever wrote the glorious info about your improvements needs to step out onto Market St and and under oath to tell the truth, watch someone try to use your app. Then that liar should be fired for perjury. How can you guys get any worse?!? First you won’t put up the scratch to stay an NBC affiliate and now we loyal KRON fans are given pig slop in the form of an app, not to mention the non professionals in San Jose.

I cannot believe you continue to air Dr Sonia’s segments after her business continues to have unethical, unprofessional and incompetent surgical procedures and takes no responsibility for the damage they cause! I was butchered during an Elite Mini Facelift and received inadequate care. Dr. Bansal actually scudded me for the Botched procedure! For both KRON4 and Elite MD it’s all about money, the money you get for airing her segments and the money they get for incompetent surgical procedures. Shame on you KRON 4 and Elite MD for their irresponsible service you provide!

App developer did a good job, app works well. A little unorganized but ok. Not a fan on KRON. Articles are clickbait, terrible biased topics and unorganized.
Bad app
by Sansapple on 2018/07/01 16:35
Every tine I use the app it contains syntax error. It appears the app developer never checked his or her work. Sad.
Very buggy
by Zapbanana on 2018/06/27 13:39
I would have been a really good app but the live stream news is very buggy, it stops during the commercial but sometimes it won’t come back, and screen turns dark and won’t load anymore, every time they had an app update doesn’t seem to fix the problem.
Love KRON 4 news

Mike Burris

Very little information on this app, and overall; not reporting on the Governor nearly enough. Governor Brown’s proposals are not being presented to the public before enactment. Useless & a disservice to this State.
Thank You, KRON4 your superb!
by Miss goof on 2018/05/25 17:24

I love KRON4 news. I watch it everyday and I’m so glad we can watch it on our devices. It gives me important updates on what’s going on locally and not local. When I can’t get to a tv I get it on my device. Thank you!!
Doesn’t take you to the article from the alert!
by FanceeDiva on 2018/05/07 17:09
If I get an alert and I click on it I’m not taken directly to the article! What’s the point of the alert if you can’t go directly to the article to read it? And the article is hard to find! FRUSTRATING TO SAY THE LEAST!
Great app!

The worst
by davidsanger on 2017/10/14 20:19
This is probably one of the worst apps out here. You can easily set it up to get alerts, but then when you try to actually watch the live stream they are alerting you to it simply does not work. When trying to get updates on the Napa fire I got a notification that there’s a Cal fire press conference but the app does not connect at all even with a perfect high-speed Internet connection The app ought to be scrapped and rewritten. Do not rely on it if you are trying to get any kind of news
Way too many ads
by Jessichu on 2017/10/14 15:48
This app is incredibly disappointing. We're trying to stay updated on the fires here in Sonoma county but get barraged with ads making it impossible to watch

Notifications mysteriously keep reenabling
by Shawn c on 2019/10/15 02:58
The app is good for the most part, but once a week or so I notice that more and more non-important alerts keep popping up in my notifications. I go into the app, and, sure enough, alerts like “Trending Now” are reenabled automatically. I shut them all off except for “News Alerts” and the process repeats itself later. It’s getting very annoying. I’m still keeping an eye out for a better local news app that doesn’t spam me with superfluous notifications in attempts to harvest more clicks.

KRON does a great job of broadcasting the latest Fire & evacuation info during wildfires. This BayA Native is able to monitor & share info with loved ones on social media from my iPad on Maui. Friends in NorCal can download app & watch when the power is out if they have cell coverage or wi-fi. Great community service! Highly recommended and appreciated.
I Love KRON4
by Arlene2 on 2019/11/06 17:29
I so appreciate getting local news and at a very reasonable subscription price. However I find it difficult to negotiate my way around the app. I’ll get a news flag on my front screen and it does not open to that article directly & it is not necessarily intuitive where to look for it. Also, I’m not sure if it’s the app or my phone but the videos time out so I don’t use them. Regardless, thank you KronOn!

Stories Not Available TOO QUICKLY
by Herbonly on 2019/09/24 17:18
Too often, in fact, most often when I open an alert on my cell about a news story posted that same day has already been removed. Very frustrating. It’s so frequent, I’ve learned to not even bother trying to access the story older than a day using the KRON app and look for the story elsewhere. It’s getting so bad I’m even thinking of even deleting the app.
Application is a perpetual glitch
by DianaPepe on 2019/07/02 13:28
It’s like an 80’s application, I’ve downloaded the app in my fire stick to watch the news but it gets stuck every 5 minutes and right now I have 30 minutes in silence watching the Traffic, is like a horror movie and I’ll be on it in 30 minutes when I start driving to work!

App needs work
by cake_mix on 2019/09/12 18:40
Really wish there were more customization options for notifications by topic or regions of the Bay Area. I get so many KRON4 notifications that aren’t relevant to what I need to know or care about. The app is also glitchy sometimes, such as the videos don’t play right, even if I’m connected to good WiFi.

Without a doubt the most informative news network for the bay area Xfinity stop broadcasting this news network in Fairfield I do not know why but it is a shame any big mistake
Cancelling Option for Dan Mateo
by Morenowg on 2019/07/13 00:16
I do not understand why KRON is cancelling their alliance with the service provider that connects lower income people to KRON. Many can not afford the high prices of cable/Comcast/ Direct/etc. So they have to subscribe to lower tier services. Now KRON is cutting ties so these people will not be getting this news info. Why??
Someone in Marketing Needs to Get A Grip
by Havadood on 2017/10/12 18:33
This app is horrible. Have been trying to stream from the East Coast to get updates on the fires as family and friends are in the line of fire in NoCa. This app keeps running the same 2 commercials for KRON 4 over and over and over and over again every few, very few, minutes. I mean over and over and over again. It is bizarre. Makes it unwatchable. What is their marketing department thinking?
Decent app. Couple of fixes needed
by JoycieAnne on 2019/05/30 15:56
When PUSH notifications are sent ... MANY times the article isn’t even on the app/website yet. Don’t send notifications out, unless the story is available. It’s lame to click on it and then ... nothing. App is crashing — LOTS lately — on iOS.
Thank You, KRON4 your superb!

They broke swiping - dang
by Tubbseritz on 2019/05/16 17:44
The app doesn't support swiping through the news reports. I need to go back to the front page and select the next article from there. I hope that isn't intentional because I really like this app and I use it all the time.

I like the app but like on the traffic cameras like bay bridge toll plaza and stuff like that how come they are still images why aren’t they like a live video like how they are when. They show them on the news on tv ? Can you please update that? Now why should I have to subscribe just to live stream the news that’s just ridiculous!! Now I give you two stars!

by SF Muffintops on 2019/10/21 04:42
KRON4 News is great to watch on TV and I was looking forward to being able to catch stories from my phone. Since installing this recently, however, I can barely read a single story before the app crashes. Some articles won’t open at all - app just crashes. Pretty disappointing and useless.
**** 5 stars
by Rivertown Kid Rosie on 2019/10/17 12:55
For news, I depend on KRON, for up to the minute news! Thank you, all your updates! Also, Thanks for covering East Contra Costa County with traffic! 5 Stars
Sound?
by JLisaJ on 2019/11/04 15:48
Good coverage, but accompanying sound for videos seems hit or miss. This isn’t a problem with my ABC 7 app or other news apps, so not sure what’s going gonna with the KRON app.
Video does not work
by Mrsjero on 2019/07/19 16:25
A few weeks ago the app stopped being able to play videos. I updated the app, still doesnt play videos. I can read the stories but cannot play the videos of the stories. Super frustrating.
Visuals don’t line up with sound
by missionminisf on 2019/06/10 03:49
Yet another day when none of what is on the screen is what is being presented verbally. And not just for a a few minutes- this lasts for beyond a reasonable amount. How can you be so slow to respond to a problem and have it happen over and over again. Really bad!
Very buggy
by Zapbanana on 2018/06/27 13:39

I hate it!!!
by Snpy0284 on 2017/09/13 13:40
I hate the new update!! I used to love the last version before this new update. I loved that I can watch the news live from my phone with no issues. Now, every 5 seconds a stupid ad pops up and I can't even watch the news while I'm getting ready. Bring back the old version!
Why bother
by Stooz on 2019/10/02 04:57
It’s basically a web experience with some junk wrapped around it. Not well designed. Video clips fail all the time. You are a SF Bay Area news station - would be great if you could tap into all the talent here and get a real app built that works.
Try Harder
by Accountable237 on 2019/10/30 03:10
To put it simply this station sends alerts for breaking news that has already transpired. They also provide links to live coverage that are absolutely not live. It’s recorded and replayed throughout the day. This is deceptive and should be criminal. Just another business disguised and a public service.
Good – plus a suggestion
by Janetfitz on 2019/10/02 11:53
Would be great if you could cover all the action going on in local town halls fighting the untested for health impacts 5G microwave radiation street antennae plan being forced upon us by the FCC. Interview Dr. Joel Moskowitz at UC Berkeley (Public Health) for starters.
Subscription?
by n1X_rAY_82901517 on 2019/02/28 01:58
I have been a user of the KRON4 News App for nearly 2 years and now I’m forced to subscribe to news that is free?? I don’t even know if my family is safe in the flood areas of Guerneville. This is a ridiculous thing to have concerned families pay/subscribe for to find out if their loved ones are alive.
Marketing renders the app useless
by B8con on 2017/10/04 14:37
Between the constant advertisements, random pop ups and other marketing techniques this tool has become one of the most frustrating news apps I have ever witnessed. I would almost be willing to pay very small nominal price to mitigate the barrage of marketing.

What was wrong with the old app?
by AppreciateAGoodApp on 2017/09/16 16:31
The font of the body of the article is way too narrow and faint to read for any amount of time. When reading at night the videos load unexpectedly, are way too loud, and wake up the one sleeping next to you! Can't wait for the next version.
