App Reviews

  • Need updated support for larger phones

    By BadBoi2
    This used to be my go to app for news. This app needs to be overhauled to fit the X,Xs, and Xs Max and now the XR phones. The iPhone X has been out for over a year now and this app has not kept up with the times. Please update this app to take advantage of the full screen available on the models mentioned.
  • Hard to read blank pages

    By gcristan
    All you get most times when trying to read the news is a pretty white page with no content. There may be a worse app out there, I just haven’t found it. This issue has been reported in the past and never fixed. Deleting.
  • Useless

    By Wdolphinw
    Weather is fair- don't rely on it in a hurricane. Political news is typical slanted and jaded. Clearly one-sided. Story on Dolphin Research Center had incorrect info provided regarding it being a retirement home for show dolphins?? Wrong!! I am a member of the center. It could have been a good story if the important parts of the center were highlighted.
  • Update

    By Smith1181
    The most recent update has messed up the local headlines. It just pops up with a white screen.
  • Good but...

    By scotthilt
    This app is good, but not nearly as good as the other Spectrum News app that’s serves the other Spectrum markets. Please update this app to the quality of the other News app.
  • Useless!

    By Mjtaborn
    I downloaded this app to help with Hurricane Irma but got NOTHING out of it. What a waste of effort. Glad I didn't pay anything for it.
  • App loads News 13 Web site

    By mattmunyon
    News 13 offers many news stories on a variety of topics. I get much of my local and state news and weather from News 13. I wanted and expected to like the app. Alas, I'm disappointed with the News 13 Plus app. I clicked on all the news stories. Each one loads the News 13 actual web site, ads and all. The text is very small and impossible to read without pinch and zoom in my iPhone. Additionally, the app does not allow for the user to double tap the screen to auto adjust the text. Additionally, the radar weather appears to be a snapshot or screenshot from their web site. The radar is not live. Other local news outlets offer apps with content within the native app and live radar. News 13 needs to transform its news and weather content to work in the native app and not act as a link to its web site. I will check back occasionally for fixes. In the meantime, I'll get my news and weather elsewhere (at lest on my iPhone).
  • 13news app

    By Wish it would rain
    I was excited to see channel 13 had an app for I phones. Maybe it's just that my phone is older (4s) but when you want to read an article, the writing is so small it's difficult to read without making it bigger then it won't fit and you have to keep sliding it side to side. I have other news apps and they don't have that problem. I hope they can correct that issue.
  • Battery hog.

    By L P Art
    This new app. is decent with many useful features, but it is a real battery hog. When the location setting is turned on, the battery drains way too fast. But the location setting is needed to make the alert features useful. Even with the location setting turned off, the app. appears to drain the battery even when the app. is not active. I will remove the app. until it is revised to be more battery friendly.
  • Error fetching information

    By Jedab
    Error fetching information message is strange because there are current headlines on startup even tho you get that error message yet when you go to read an article the error message appears before the article loads
