App Reviews

  • New App is Not a Great Experience

    By TravyBaby
    The new app has been very frustrating. It’s hard to hold in one hand and navigate with the left thumb because it doesn’t always respond as expected. It will swipe to a next article or do something that doesn’t feel like it matches the input. But beyond that, one of the most frustrating things is to get a new notification about a news story, follow to the app from the notification, only to arrive at a blank white screen with nothing but the back arrow navigation. I wait for something to load, and it doesn’t. I use the back button since it’s the only option, and the page is nothing more than a blank white page with a forward navigation button. I ultimately have to quit the app, relaunch it, and just try to find the article manually. Two thumbs down for the “improvements” of the new app. Using iOS iPhone X.
  • Navigation issues on iPad...

    By Denisetally
    I tend to hold my iPad with my left hand in landscape mode and I don’t always want to scroll with my right hand in the middle of the display... most of the time I want to use my left thumb to scroll through an article that I’m reading. This is impossible with this new app. The navigation area of an article has such large left and right margins that it makes it impossible to navigate with my left thumb while holding my iPad... otherwise, I like the search and targeting News features. I find those very useful. If you could fix the navigation issue, I’d give more stars. I see where people have complained about ads... those are part of the experience in any free content... so they are to be expected. It would be nice to allow us to skip an Ad after so many seconds. Thanks for reading this review.
  • ABC News is The BEST!

    By 4BlueNET
    We all love GMA!! We all love The Evening News with David Muir! We trust him, seriously. The staff always brings current, well informed news and in-depth information that we need to know. I am obsessed with George S. I always want to hear George’s opinion. It counts and wish we could hear more and see more of him during the day. I adore Ginger Zee she is on top of the weather and is a pleasure having her as our top national weather source. Of course we love our KSAT too! We have THE BEST local weather and news team. The team at KSAT is a treat and we feel honoured to have them. It’s like they are family. Thank you ABC for giving us the BEST!
  • NEW ABC News app

    By Heisenberg Q
    First of all-you should’ve sent us (iPad Pro users) a push message for an update app. The previous app started getting sluggish & slow for things to open up for months. I just quit using the app. I finally deleted the app and went to the App Store and downloaded the new one. I don’t like the optics and don’t like the layout of the NEW app. The old one was much better. It functioned & worked better. You could surf better. The optics, the format, was better then this NEW app. Plus there are several things missing on this New app that are not on the old one. I’ll probably just use it less. Depend on it less.

  • ABC News Live

    By Brenda (USA)
    I really appreciate the live coverage (especially minus the chatter of commentators). The comment thread allowed people to comment as they got news from various stations around the world. I didn’t care for the reporter going into a cave to show us what it was like (similar to reporters standing in the middle of a hurricane or icy bridge to show the conditions)! This is unnecessary and could have potentially diverted rescuers from their mission if something unexpected had happened to him. I much preferred to wait for the cameras from the head cams of the Navy Seals. News coverage has been sparse and spotty on the MSM channels. Your camera coverage has been outstanding and I appreciate seeing events unfolding on the scene rather than listening to the regular “star” reporters telling us about it as they sit around a table giving us canned news and constant coverage of 45 wrecking our nation.

  • Okay but glitches/network error messages

    By DJNicoRico
    This app is OK but could have so much more potential if it didn’t crash all the time and give me glitch messages about how the network was not working even though I have strong Wi-Fi and cellular. I like that I can at least get push notifications about stories and certain topics I care about, as well as breaking news. Please fix the homepage so I can read stories that are posted because every time I try to click on one it doesn’t open and gives me error message.

    By Wrbellsugar
    The updated app doesn’t have the ability to set a local weather for a particular location such as Miami for example. Other then that the app does what the old app did with a few more features. The old app was just fine. It does however use a large amount of data which needs correcting. I just wish it would be corrected soon. The old app was much better than this one. I will continue to use the old one. Also this update is much bigger than this one.
  • Latest update invasive with ads.

    By Drweniki
    The current incarnation has invasive video ads mid article that auto play with the sound ON! The sound doesn’t turn off even when you click on the mute link or if the sound link is already muted. The videos play even if you have auto play toggled off in the settings. So you are forced to watch the whole video, with the sound on, even if you are only reading the article. So everyone around you, in the library, in the coffee shop, in bed still asleep next to you early in morning are all disturbed by the sound of these annoying ads.

    Very impressed with the ease of finding news resources. Categories allow me to focus on topics that interest me in the order of interest and skip irrelevant topics. Concise news at ones's fingertips---up to the minute news. I also like the feature that tells me when I last viewed news topic so I don't waste time re-reading. Photos are Sharp, even beautiful! Great Ap
