Crash (fr few days ago) fixed - thanks!!!

It’s working again, thanks, really appreciate it. So back to 5 stars from me (from 3 stars). Please keep up the excellent work and keep progressing (but pls ensure any technical issue feedback from any users are listened to in timely manner- so your users base will keep growing - knowing and trusting that your developers will keep working hard at fixing any technical issues, so more & more people will use this great app of abc Australia, for their trusted source of info/facts, fact checks and diverse opinions). Many thanks!
Hi, I usually check the news every morning on this app for the past 3 months or so and have been very happy with it. 3 days ago there was an update (for stability it seems), and it was working ok till yesterday. Then this morning it keeps crashing (tried it about 3 times just now) - can you please fix it ASAP? I can check abc news on the web or tv, but having this app on my iPhone 6Plus is so convenient. Many thanks (will update the star rating back to 5 once it get fixed).

Happy with the app...........but

I have finally decided I like the app. Having had the app for years it took a while to decide it was as good as the older app. The ‘but’ is because I’ve been very disappointed to note that a story I read in the morning, was pulled by the afternoon. Not just once, but ‘the’ article that disappeared was one that criticised the actions/comment of a minister of the current Federal Government. This action by ?? at the ABC adds weight to the various negative comments about the (so called) ‘unbiased ABC’ news. Having never considered the ABC was biased one way or another, I’m becoming more cynical. It’s an absolute shame that I feel I may no longer trust the ABC to report the news on any Federal Government minister of any party, good or bad, without someone deciding that the particular article should be pulled. People like me have long memories of a very very balanced ABC! 😞😞😞

Balanced news

While I seem to be part of a the swelling herd that now gets most of its news online, I am often disheartened by what some media outlets churn out as “news”.
I couldnt care less about sensationalized faux celebrity tidbits, or referencing tv network shows, which are just poorly disguised cross promotion.
The ABC has a consistent high standard, and with what I see as mainly balanced reporting. While a mass market of news consumers will never all be 100% satisfied with any news delivery, I feel that more people would benefit, and be better informed, if they got their news feed from the ABC, rather than a lot of the swill that is served up by the growing number of sensational and/or banal media outlets that masquerade as news services.
