1.0 out of 5 stars What a Joke! June 28, 2012
Verified Purchase
Being an avid Fox News follower this 'app' is horrible. I can get live Fox News and Fox Business News on my Iphone. And my Kindle Fire gets this??? You get untimely reports/videos as well as reports on events that you look at and say 'why this?' Horrible!

2.0 out of 5 stars No longer works on the Kindle Fire HD March 8, 2014
Verified Purchase
I run the Fox News app on my Samsung SIII, on my wife's iPhone 5 and it runs great. It does not work correctly on the Kindle Fire HD - it appears there were some recent changes made and it no longer displays properly. I get a picture, but no headlines and no other stories. I've completely uninstalled and reinstalled, etc. and it's a no-go. I really want this on the Kindle, but it's not usable right now.
PLEASE fix the Kindle version of this app so it works as designed. I will re-install when it is fixed! Until this is fixed, I actually have to get my world news from BBC and Europe as they are more 'fair' with less governmental taint than our own wonderful 'free' press!

I'm now 'left' with unfair and unbalanced news...

I really wanted to like this app. But, after downloading it and opening it, I was very disappointed. This app needs a ton of improvement before I will update my rating.

2.0 out of 5 stars Where's the news? March 24, 2014
Verified Purchase
I purchased Kindles for my family in Oct. 2012. Fox news worked great until a few months ago. Refreshed on a regular basis and had loads of articles under each heading. The last few months it has been awful! Hardly any articles under the headings, some only have one, and it is from three days ago! Another issue is that all the articles are anonymous! Are you so ashamed of the terrible delivery that you won't put the names of the people responsible for the articles on your site? Please fix it and fast!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fox News for Kindle Fire: Disappointing November 18, 2012
Verified Purchase
Being a news junkie and one who wants to stay informed of the issues on all sides of the news and political spectrum, this one seemed to be a good choice for those who own a Kindle Fire. This device is ideal for an information app like this, especially if you like your news on the go.

On the plus side, Fox News for Kindle Fire is a small app, taking up only 1.0MB on this device, and will install in less than 30 seconds, and the overall layout is very simple and easy to navigate. Beyond that, it seems that this Version 1.6 app is far different from what we find on their site on the Internet and on television. It claims to stream "high-quality breaking news video straight to your Kindle Fire," but for this user, is seemed to have more old news than anything else. It just doesn't update the news in a timely manner as one might hope.

If anything, it should be called "Fox News Lite" in the opinion of this user of the Kindle Fire. If you enjoy light versions of the news, USA Today 24/7 Free (Kindle Tablet Edition) is a far better product. If you access one of the videos with the Fox News app and it's just a tad too long, it doesn't have the wherewithal to prevent the Kindle Fire from going to energy save mode and shutting off, and I don't feel like resetting this device for one single app; it should be a built-in feature.

Maybe it's because I'm comparing this with BBC News (Kindle Tablet Edition) and the CNN App, which are two freebies available here. The one from BBC is 1.

1.0 out of 5 stars forget it. March 9, 2014
Verified Purchase
Some of us love our Kindle. Fox news obviously does not. I guess there's not enough of us to make it worthwhile for them to keep it up.

I don't know what happened to this app. It only has minimal stories on it ? Maybe its being phased out. It could be a fox issue because it functions fine but where it had multiple categories with 5 to 10 articles most categories now have 1 or 2 article if any.

Limited menus and photos are huge. This app worked fine in early 2014 and seemed to be redesigned. Since then it has essentially been useless on all of our Amazon gadgets. Read more

Fire TV
I agree whole heartedly. While we have CNN, CBS, WSJ, Aljezeera, NBC, NewsMax and a dozen or so others I would prefer to watch the most watched news without having to leave the Amazon Fire TV. I have it for many other devices running android.
