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.

Doing just a wonderful job What we need now is flow of current News which matters a great deal. I have found that the coverage of your channel is not only the best available but also the contents show complete professionalism.
Thanx so much for everything you are doing.
My greatest regards to each of you engaged in this direction.
Best wishes.
God bless.

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.

Finally decided to stop using this news app after so much redirecting and frustrating interface issues. At first you will click on an article that you want to read, and then get immediately redirected to the safari app to go to their website, which doesn’t even have the article you clicked on. It’s very frustrating. Happens really often, especially with their top stories. In general their are just so many ads, and different ways that you can tell they are trying to make revenue. It’s disappointing because their content is solid enough, but is just drowned out by their revenue making attempts.
