The updated 9NEWS app gives you access to all the latest breaking news from a trusted team of journalists, with custom alerts so you never miss anything. 9NEWS has been covering Australia and the world for more than 60 years so you know it's a source you can rely on.

You can swipe through all the news and videos in our completely re-designed app experience and subscribe to a variety of alerts, including Sport, Politics, World, Finance, Weather, Entertainment and Technology.

The app uses geo-targeting to alert you to 'News Near Me'. This feature sends an alert for breaking news within a few kilometres of your current location – just allow access to your location when prompted. This can be especially useful for alerts about traffic delays or accidents, fires, floods, and police operations.

We understand that too many alerts can be intrusive, so our team will only send ones we think you will find truly interesting. Our alerts are sent without an audible tone so you won't be disturbed at the wrong time.

The 9NEWS app also allows you to set your location by city or postcode so you see extra stories from your state and weather forecasts for exactly where you live.

If you feel you're getting too many alerts, or too few, you can easily change your subscriptions within the app on the Settings screen.

The best way to see the news

I really love this news app. Super easy to use and navigate through the stories. I also like the alerts, the Just In section and the way you can scroll through and article and still watch the video. 10/10!

I would most definitely recommend the 9News app to most of the Australian population. News delivered fast, readable and accessible content, notifications for breaking news (SO happy this was fixed in a recent update) and even weather. What more could you ask from the 9News app? The only thing that could be improved is the occasional spelling and grammar errors, and also, just WHY are there “alerts” inside an app? That’s just wrong when most people should already get push notifications. One more negative to think of. I was quite confused when the app starting bombing us with “Karl Stephanovic” alerts. Surely this is just a way to praise the Nine team which is good but there were just too many alerts. Overall, though, this should be a 4/5 app because it is quite good if you want breaking news to your phone in an instant and if you want good coverage of the events happening right now.

Over reporting of Celebrity lives

I think your problem is quantity over quality. You seem to be losing your identity as a news service and becoming a dumbed up woman’s day .

Certainly provide low key news via a subnews access but don’t bash us over the head every day with reports on other people’s activities on a daily basis
Eg Karl Stephanovich . Major irritation . It almost seemed that Karl was submitting his own stories and you were his news/media service
It showed how powerful he used to be . I can live without him .......

It’s an example of a service creating news rather than reporting it . I think more blinding issues like the Murray darling , global warming , China’s influence on our daily Australian lives etc etc should be pursued by better hard hitting reporters .
