News is Important

I like and trust the news coverage on this app. I can scroll easily but images don’t load quickly. I like the font and it is easy to read if you don't have perfect vision. I like options to read privately rather than having to go immediately to a video. I find there is a good variety of war news coverage also the bad local events not just the big headlines. I do like the health and education news to be current and less opinion on random political figures and events. Updates to stories I have read would also be helpful and hopeful.

Many glitches

The App needs some tweaking, the app. Continuously is Booting me out to my home page on my phone, I have ran The diagnostics on my phone and it is NOT my phone it IS the app. Also commercials and/or “Ads” get cut off and sent to blue screen during live news casts and if watching “Breaking news” (which is live) The App. Makes you watch an Ad Mean While there is SERIOUS breaking News!!! That OF ALL THINGS NEEFS TO BE FIXED!! ASAP!! What if something even More serious the
COVID-19 Comes three or God forbid a war coming our way or a Bomb from Russia and I’m watching the news ONLY TO GET AN AD BEFORE SEEING THE LIVE NEWS!! It makes NO SENSE?!?!?!? I mean if I was watching tv news Breaking news Breaks threw Regular scheduling TV to report “Breaking news”!! FIX THE GLITCH!! SOME PEOPLES LIVES DEPEND ON THIS APP. ITS THE ONLY NEWS I CAN GET PLEASE FIX THIS????

Needs updating. Too many fake news links.

It’s a decent local news app, but it needs to be updated and it’s got too many advertising links dressed up as fake news stories.
The app needs to be formatted for different size phones. The fonts look huge on my iPhone 6 Plus and there’s no way to adjust the font size. The notifications are also annoying and should be controllable within the app, perhaps to allow for different kinds of alerts you may want or don’t want (e.g. all news, local news, weather, sports, traffic, politics).
The fake news links to advertising are a real disappointment. You’d think a news app, especially ABC, would want to maintain the integrity of their news outlet and not list a bunch of fake news links after their stories under “You might also be interested in...” That’s just lame.
