The news.com.au app brings you the news from Australia's #1 news website, read by over 10 million Australians every month.
You can swipe quickly through the latest breaking news and stories from politics, world, sport, lifestyle, entertainment, travel, finance and technology, or kick back and explore the app for opinion and analysis, or a reality TV recap.
The app has all the content you love with loads of cool features. The My News section is your personalised news feed. You can read your favourite topics and stay up-to-date with stories that are important to you. We also know how busy you are so now you can save articles for later.
Australians turn to news.com.au during the biggest breaking news events. Now you can be informed first with push notifications. We will only send out notifications on breaking news and stories that matter. If you feel like we are sending too many notifications you can scale back the alerts in the settings of the app. You can also comment on the big issues of the day and see what other people are saying.

Average at best.
I have to agree with the influx of negative reviews. App was passable until the constant nagging to register. And I was already signed in. Considering we can just add the News homepage to our home screen. Not to mention the swipe back function should go back to the first page, not the previous article.
It’s a bit clickbait in titles
I don’t like how it’s a gossipy and clickbaity, I want the facts, not sensualise facts. The corona virus coverage in particular, rounding up numbers of those infected i.e almost 300 infections.. well it’s not 300 it’s 297, I want actual facts not rounding up. Yes it will quickly surpass 300 in fact it has now gone past 300 but not at the time of reporting! Also the coverage of Hamish Blake’s joke about pasta brands and making a article about it as if it’s actually serious news worth reporting. Also the clear constant racist attacks on Megan and Harry, It’s a shame cause this nonsense is why I’ll delete the app which otherwise is a good app.
Just realised Rupert Murdoch associated everything is explained, delete.
Not bad but...
You need to support dark mode. I love to read the news at night but it’s blinding. This is a perfect app to support dark mode.
Sliding back should take you back. So if you click on an article from the main list of articles and then slide back... Take me back to the list. Not to another article. Its confusing and no other news app does that. Bad UI design. No one wants to slide back and forth through articles.
The My News only seems to show articles I have seen weeks or even months ago. Not sure what is going on there.
Anyway that was a little tech feedback to consider... and I didn’t even mention the totally misleading news titles. :) I guess that’s just the world we live in now.
