Love the app in general but needs some minor work
I like the ease of use and fair unbiased reporting that I have come to trust over many years. The only thing I would like to see change is how you view pictures that show on the main article. For example when you click on a story the picture at the top is cropped and many times you can’t see the details of the picture. There’s no way to click on the picture to enlarge or open separately. If that was fixed this app would be perfect.
Apparently the “live broadcast” is not dependable. After the storms of last night, and me only having antenna for local channels, I went looking to see if there was a live broadcast of the local 33/40 TV. I really could care less about watching live TV on my iPad, but sure would be nice to be able to carry James Spann into my basement with iPad and watch his weather coverage downstairs if needed.
Found on their website that this app streams live coverage. Downloaded and crap, its CRAP. First, click on the “watch button” and its new clips from two days ago and only like 2 mins long. ONCE the playlist actually had “live coverage” as the first listing on the play list. I tried watching it, but after commercials, I got a splash screen that said “be back soon”......they lied. After 10 mins of this, I closed out the app, and opened it back up. NOW, THE “LIVE COVERAGE DOES NOT EVEN SHOW UP AT ALL UNDER THE WATCH TAB. ITS JUST DAYS OLD CLIPS. They either stream live or they DON’T. So far, its not worth my time OR effort.
UPDATED: Take me to the articles
This is an updated review based on the fact that nothing seems to have improved from a notifications standpoint. And because they haven’t fixed the issue, even though their release notes indicate they fixed it, I’m downgrading my rating to 1 star. The issue: When certain notifications pop up, I click on them and it just takes me to the “Explore” menu. The article from the notification is no where to be found. Either the app is dysfunctional or ABC is releasing articles and retracting them. If the issue is fixed, I will happily upgrade my review.
ABC, when you send me a push notification for a news article, I expect to click on the notification and be taken to that article. This doesn’t happen.
