I'm making a comment about the app that I have on my Samsung smart TV not this app for my phone because I don't know any other way to mention it. For several weeks I've had to watch the KTLA live news in the mornings before I go to work through the TV app, but it's been a couple weeks or so since I have been able to because the libe news won't appear during the live broadcasts. I've tried reinstalling the TV app, but it does nothing to kix the issue. The app for my phone seems to work ok though

Decreased my number of stars from 5 to 3. The app worked great whether I was reading or streaming. Something changed and it is impossible for me to read stories while on the go. From the home page, I click on a headline to read the story. The article starts to load and will suddenly make the whole story disappear. I scroll all the way to the bottom hoping that it is a video or advertisement loading... No luck. What happened to my local news????

Many times the read more link does not properly work, many times you'll start reading an article and then all it wants to do is go to a white screen and you can't recycle it, as it then goes back to the story menu. it usually happens also on stories that you're really interested in it's extremely frustrating and I love KTLA channel 5 news but this app needs a lot of work

What's new

If you’re holding your device in landscape when entering an article screen, the video will no longer automatically jump into full-screen mode. If you’re holding your phone or tablet in portrait orientation when you’re on an article, then you can still quickly launch video full-screen mode by rotating it to landscape. We also fixed some minor bugs.
