Great news alerts Helps me stay up on most current important news, throughout the day , when not home..

Linda MacLeod

Doesn't work for me! I get the notice but when I click on it and try to read it, it has totally disappeared and I get the most recent regular news.... No reason to have alerted me for that!

Doug Pate

Updated sux Since the last update, will not open. Change whatever you did back so I can get the local news...

Albert Kopp

Great app!! Literally best local app. The ability to download everything for offline viewing (on tablets) is very much appreciated. Would be nice if the same were possible on phones though. Thanks.

Óscar A. Contreras

Best local news app in Bakersfield Love the push alerts and the silent weather alert in the morning (which should automatically take anyone to the weather page instead of the app homepage); now would love to see the "related stories" on the app.

Jocelene Pinales

I love this app it all ways keeps me Informed of thing happening in backersfield


23ABC News Best local news app for Bakersfield

April Warkentin

App doesn't function properly It does not update the top stories like it should. Instead when I click on the 23 button to update the top stories it shows stories from last month, like the beginning and middle of last month. I like the old 23 app more. :(

Jackie Burns

News, relevant information! Relevant, clear, concise, information. Awesome app! Love the push alerts!

Dale Reed

Push alerts This is a pretty good app, but frequently when an alert is sent, the story isn't to be found when the alert is pushed. Plus sometimes the story is very vague.

Vanessa Munoz

Love the convenience, thanks! Love to keep updated on current events as a journalist major it's handy and a must.

Shawn Holman

Awesome app they need to get rid of the annoying whether guard app that pops every 15 seconds..

Wendy Ramirez

Its very slow, Its really slow its annoying u guys have to bring back.the old one... It dont even refresh, it shows me old news

Dustin Lokhorst

Full of pop ups Was ok, now every 10 sec. a pop up comes up.. crap!!!

Athina Nievez

Oswaldo Contreras

Lupe Gonzalez

Love this news team!!! Very informative.

Nathan Look

Great Looking, Easy to USE! This is a great app, breaking local news, weather and road alerts to my phone.

A Google User

Now that you guys updated it I can't seam to find weather reports for towns outside of bakersfield. I live in Isabella and this app no longer helps.

Matthew Dickinson

End? Is the world realy going to end can u ask nasa about it cause if it is true we the. people of the United States Of Americia should know about it.

A Google User

To many Commercial Commercial everytime you watch a video. It sucks

Jay L Harmon

No news, Just fluff. Today: Two different articles about the St Jude Dream Home contest, but not one article about serious news. This is a regular occurrence with this "news" app. Also, you can't comment on articles from within the app; you'll have to launch your browser if you want to comment (and you're likely to be the only commenter).

Reese Roberts

Speed is good, but...! Had an issue with the text reading with all the encoding. The developer fixed the problem and now this is a great local news app. for me.

Ray Murphy

I only watch 23 The app is great. The all new add ppl on the live broadcast, is kinda cool. Like that they are giving young new ppl an opportunity to advance their Carriers. And I will say they are really good at there job for being new.

Albert Kopp

App crashes This new update is nice, clean, and organized..... BUT the app now crashes for me when I try to look around in the traffic map. Also the ads really are way too intrusive -when they literally take up the top half of the entire screen, it's a bit much. Needs a dedicated Local section too.

Billy Moses

The upgrade made this app 10 times better!! Great app to get my news and breaking news information when 23 newscast isn't on-air. Big fan of Tim Callahan in Jackie Parks!!

Marc Skidmore

Local news App is fine but you can't limit news feed to local news. You have to open every story to see if it's local or somewhere else

Jessica Hider

Need to fix bugs The app was great before the update.. Now everytime i click a previous post the app force closes...

Brandon A Barraza

New update New update app sucks always freeze and crashes ! Will not use this app anymore lost my support to the app


Slow, no text on some stories Pictures load very slowly, when opening some pages it just has HTML looking format text, others the text is very small, can't zoom it, can't read it. Will uninstall, use website instead.

Lee Russoniello

Too many mistakes The articles are not correct. I'm not sure who is doing the editing but there are so many mistakes. For instance in the article about J's place they talk about slavery in the 1960s and use the word hammock to describe ham hocks in a recipe. Plus now there are big ads over the pages.

Melissa Gingras

No bueno with new GUI. ADs on top and bottom Application's new GUI shows ADs at top of story AND bottom. Once is ok but the same ad in a 4x2 section? Id like to sort by KERN co. news from the national news. My favorite part of the prior AP the "STAR" icon is NOT available now so I cannot save a story to read later that day/week/future time now I can't save the story quickly come back, recall and read (select stories) in the future, when on break or an evening read..

Jessica Chavez

The new update has too many ads that are freezing my phone. I can't even watch a news cast because the ad stops and the news cast does not start. Also it is making my phone keep thinking between the news articles, I think it's more ads but nothing ever pops ups just a blank space. I liked old app why change something that worked.

Sylvia Bill

I liked 23 news. Their staff really get close to the incidents that is happening. 29 news doesn't get close enough. I think 23 news needs to have casual Friday. Maybe like wearing polo shirts with 23 news logo. Relax people. That's just my opinion.

Regina Saum

No local news?? I'm looking for local news from a local news station, if I wanted national I'd just look at my feed.

Eddie Arguello

Crashes and ads Force closes and won't let me read articles. Not to mention a plethora of ads.

Luis Martinez

Like old version Old version was way better, easy to maneuver

Ashley Brightwell-valenzuela

Even better! There were some issues with the app when it was first updated. However they have fixed them and now the app is awesome! It's even better then it was before!

J Krems

This new version sucks. Using KGET until its fixed.

Kawika Haynes

No Videos will load..and Who ever is in charge of this app cant even spell

Marcos Montoya

Add comments to stories Save the bs news please was a good app FIRE THE NEWS APP CREW JOURNALISTS nice new sleek design kuddos

Kat Cecil

Please fix I like the look of the new app but I can NEVER read the story. It just has a bunch of arrows and jumbled letters. Never had that problem with the old app.

richard mancha

New update sucks Please fix it. Videos won't play, app won't open and stay open. I preferred the old app.

kathy goetjen

23 new app Hate it. Go back to the previous app. Much better.

Sue TG

Keeping me informed! Nice app! I would recommend this app to others.

Anita Smith

The older verson is better

Sandra Robledo

This app sucks!!!! I can never get the right updates and the videos never play!!!! Go back to how it was!!!!!

Scott Wright

Links I click on links that come in and it does not take me to the topic of the link. Been like this for a long time. FIX IT!

Russel Messick

Not very good I live near Mojave and they wind is over 100 mph trees down semi's overturned all over the place and no news of it on this app. Pathetic

Danny Gibbons

Stories don't load but the ADS sure do, very quick. What a spam in the a**

Janet Love

Excellent, only station we watch.


Good Pretty good for keeping up on my local news.. A lil buggy but not to serious... I use it daily

ruben fonseca

Nice u can have information resented.

Omar Cazares

Ur new app sucks Your new app sucks I try to watch your news and all I get is you appolonia commercial thanks but no thanks.... either fix it or give me the old kero back or KGET17 here I come...

Alejandra Soto

Great Love the interface. I just wish the AztecaTV section was updated more often.

Jennifer Cottrell

So convinient Makes life with no cable much easier

Albert Kopp

Getting better.... This app is set up "weird" for some reason. Just getting to the Local News section of this app should be faster & more in the forefront (this is a LOCAL news app, right?). It would make much more sense to place it right next to Top Stories. Currently it almost feels like I have to jump into the settings menu just to read the local news.

Connie Trujillo

I think they get the late night news. That's great.

Reese Roberts

Latest update made app unusable!!! App freezes when opening; just get a blank screen since most recent update!

Greg Etheridge

Sucks This app freezes and takes forever to load. Perferred the other versions

Shiretta Tolbert

Not able to unload pictures that I have taken to send to the news channel are video

Teresa Moore

Too slow Since new update takes forever to load. Ive been using this app for a long time. Cant handle it anymore

Ken Busser

Used to be good 5 stars Updates & current updates have ruined it... Scripps doesn't know how to fix or run apps.

Denise Quinn

Like the older version I have had this newer version up for awhile giving it a chance. I'm sorry but I don't like it. The previous version was easier to navigate. I also don't care for the crap at the bottom trying to get me to go to other stories being posted by a source other than 23ABC. Please consider going back. I don't understand why people try to fix things that aren't broken.

Albert Kopp

Finally UNINSTALLED I really gave this app a good fighting chance for over 6 months. Even w/ all the updates, this app is still just horrible. There is always only a very small handful of current day news stories reported on this app (& half of them aren't even "important" news). The app itself is poorly designed too & has WAY TOO MANY annoying ads that you have to constantly scroll past or watch..... & this is supposed to be their "new and improved" app too. Might try this app again in a year or so. For now, I'm done with it.

Mrtn B

Ugly ads, and too many! Ads of overweight women, I'm not one, so don't care. Make ads more to my needs, and get that ugly chicken off my phone!!! Aaaarrrrgh!!!! (in the voice of Jim carey, in the movie ace ventura , after getting shot by all those darts) .. toooooo mannny aaddddss!!!!!...

J. W.

Not Satisfied Just shows local news and videos don't play well fix bugs maybe will add again later on looking for a new News App.

Andrew M

Ads Giant ads that block the screen while trying to view content.

Jack Comer

Buggy Constantly trying to download something while trying to read the news.

George Garza

G.Garza Very professional and they get straight to the point

Alicia Aguilera

Mrtn B

Old News, Ugly ads, and too many! !! Ads of overweight women, I'm not one, so don't care. Make ads more to my needs, and get that ugly chicken off my phone!!! Aaaarrrrgh!!!! (in the voice of Jim carey, in the movie ace ventura , after getting shot by all those darts) .. too mannny aaddddss!!!.... But wait there's more!!!!! Many articles are actually ads, and not very good ones.. ( where's the line!!) if you got this app don't expect much and you will be happy. There aw better apps out there, and they don't even provide news like this one!

Frances Becker

It's barely ok. Alerts don't work! I click on them and half the time you get a blank screen.

George Benitez

Use spell check This app is a joke and freezes still.

Marcos Montoya

Full of adds and bogus news Use to be good it's slow now

Can't spell and channel 29 and 17 have more information.
