NBC Bay Area App Reviews

Grow Up

The weather part of the app is useless unless you happen to have the misfortune to live in the South Bay. Almost all the female news presenters and weather need voice coaching. High pitched voices rarely get out of a lousy market like San Jose. Take a listen to NBC Los Angeles or NBC Washington and LISTEN to some pros. Of course, you need to listen to prime time programming to hear the professionals.

Alerts only, app never loads

Notifications arrive but selecting to read a full article does not work....app sits in loading mode and never opens


This app helps me to keep in touch with the news from my hometown. Love it!!!

Nicely done

Worth your time to explore.


I had been using the ABC site, but they no longer supported my ipad2. This site is great, even better in the amount of info available

Best Bay Area Site

My “go to” source for News and Weather.


The new Navigation tabs are just what the app needed! All the Apple apps are Nearly complete. All we need now is Live TV for the Apple TV app. Solid update. Great job.

I like the instant notices

really handy when rain is near - I’m a contractor


This is the best evening news by far and watching it on the app is great. Highly recommended

Great news source👍🏽

I love receiving the Breaking News alerts!

Repass Electric

It’s like going home when I check in from 2,000 miles away

Fire reports

Keeps up to the date on current fire conditions going on around my area.


Overall a great app and news info

Timely updates of content not clutter

Am happy to have the app and receive the updates of useful news content than clutter.

Excellent timely app

Always correct and right on time with news!

How to get better ratings

Untether the Watch Live TV feature from requiring an XFINITY upgrade. The only channel with such a requirement in SF. SAD!

Great app

Great app, love the breaking news, just keeping update

News Updates You Want

This is a very nice apps. The selection of news updates keeps getting better and better. The weather updates are timely but can be excessive if you are driving over long distances in a short period of time.

Love the alerts.

I like this AP for the alerts. When at work they send me updates about important local and national news.

Great local news app

I haven’t had any issues with the app yet. Nice to be able to keep up with local news via my phone when I have a few minutes of down time.

Great Local App

The local, and national news are great and are delivered quickly. However, the weather portion of it is a plus. Every time there’s a chance of rain or it’s raining close by we are notified, also we can have a live and predicted forecast which gives us more credibility and information.

Very Informative

I am enjoying the app. I appreciate the weather alerts and notifications on breaking news.

Central Valley is home

But this is one of my favorite news apps,after Fresno of course.In this new world where my iPhone can have tv apps from everywhere I enjoy finding out about everything everywhere with a tap and this San Francisco’s news fills in my Cali needs. Love the content with weather and such. I recommend it to all!

Live feed broken

Giving this two stars because I have an on going issue with the live feed not working. I keep getting an error message. The only fix so far is uninstalling the app then reinstalling.

Works great for me

Could use a little better organization but overall, working good for me. I’ll turn off the notifications once the Olympics are over.

Good for staying in knowledge of the Bay Area

Great app for staying up-to-date on Bay Area news!

Works well. I like breaking news feature

I thought the app for a little while and have a really used it but all of a sudden after you said I started getting these great breaking news features popping up and I appreciate it well done

Stop with the rain notifications!

I think it’s a decent app for news (both national and Bay Area specific). My complaint is the weather/rain notifications, that seem to get triggered by location services. On my commute to work this morning I had about 12 “moderate rain detected”... pretty obnoxious. Figure out a way to fix this and I’ll give it 5 stars!

San Francisco Bay Area News

Reliable source of Bay Area breaking news and events. I recommend sign up for notifications, including weather. Not fancy, but a very good info source.

News not Program Info

I can only give this app a 2 star rating. The news itself is great. And the app, while a bit laggy and clunky at times, is better than what you’d expect for a local news app. However, the real reason for the low rating is that there is no way to turn off the program alerts. Sending me breaking news alerts is fine and exactly what I signed up for. But pushing an alert for figure skating finals or for the live version of some ridiculous holiday movie is VERY ANNOYING! Please consider changing this.

No cable no live tv

I was surprised to find out that you can’t watch live TV unless you sign in with a cable or other TV provider. I have over-the-air reception, so limiting the app to cable subscribers seems inappropriate for a non-cable tv station. This should not be allowed by the FCC.

Keeps me up to date, regardless of where I spend my day!

Updated news about local issues, plus news breaking on the CA or national platform! When traveling & camping, it helps keep me in touch with my home town!

Love it - good news, good alerts.

Thumbs up

Love it

I’m glad I have this app I’m always up to day with what’s going on in the Bay Area and breaking news around the world events.

Ads are frustrating

Live the push alerts but auto play ads are frustrating , especially when you are in a hurry

Ms. Rice-Hall

Excellent source of up to date news.

Love the Alerts feature

I mostly use this app for the alerts feature that brings me important news stories in my area. Totally worth it just for that feature alone.

Best Bay Area News app

The UI is simple to use and straight-forward.

Excellent news app

I really have no complaints. Good overall, including the Live Stream feature. Thank you NBC Bay Area!

Love this app

Easy to get fresh news!
