Updated Review yet again: It sure would be nice if you would include an ad tracker on this app. EVERY time I want to watch a news video clip, I have to watch the exact same 34 second Lyle Pearson ad. And if I want to go full screen mode, I may end up watching the ad twice before I see the video. One of the stories I wanted to watch was even shorter than the ad. Can't you hire an app developer who is able to code the app to determine the ad should only play once in a 5 to 10 minute session?

The current version of the KTVB app is very laggy, so much so it is difficult to use, even on a new fast phone. All too often its easier to pop open the phone's web browser and just view KTVB's regular website. Look forward to the next app company that can produce a usable app. I'm rating this a two instead of a one because of KTVB's quality of content, not the poor app functionality. The app deserves a one.

Traffic map doesn't load, and deceptive practices on the California "do not sell my info" permissions piece pushed me over the edge. It is there, so they are meeting the requirements, but they purposefully made the selection toggle deceptive and confusing. I used to love KTVB, but the excessive ads, navigation that when you read a news story, and it takes you all the way back up to the top so you have to start all over again, are all reasons I just uninstalled KTVB from my phone.
