Ratings and Reviews
ABC News is The BEST!
We all love GMA!! We all love The Evening News with David Muir! We trust him, seriously. The staff always brings current, well informed news and in-depth information that we need to know. I am obsessed with George S. I always want to hear George’s opinion. It counts and wish we could hear more and see more of him during the day. I adore Ginger Zee she is on top of the weather and is a pleasure having her as our top national weather source. Of course we love our KSAT too! We have THE BEST local weather and news team. The team at KSAT is a treat and we feel honoured to have them. It’s like they are family. Thank you ABC for giving us the BEST!
Use to be my favorite
This has always been my fav. News app, but now I’m looking for a different one. Even if my phones on SILENT the ads still play at full volume and won’t be silenced no matter how many times you hit the speaker icon. I understand the need for advertising but I can’t have my phone bursting out in noise very time I try to read an article.
That on top of having to watch a video commercial before EVERY news video and sometimes they’re a full minute long, is so frustrating. Previously, I knew I could expect a video commercial before every other video, which I was willing to do because they were at max 30 secs long. But now more often than not, I end up not even getting to the news video because of the commercials or because as I scroll down the article it flips me back to the headlines at which point I’d have to rewatch the commercial in order to view the news video.
So frustrated and so disappointed. Bummed to have to find a new news source.
Navigation issues on iPad...
I tend to hold my iPad with my left hand in landscape mode and I don’t always want to scroll with my right hand in the middle of the display... most of the time I want to use my left thumb to scroll through an article that I’m reading. This is impossible with this new app. The navigation area of an article has such large left and right margins that it makes it impossible to navigate with my left thumb while holding my iPad... otherwise, I like the search and targeting News features. I find those very useful. If you could fix the navigation issue, I’d give more stars. I see where people have complained about ads... those are part of the experience in any free content... so they are to be expected. It would be nice to allow us to skip an Ad after so many seconds. Thanks for reading this review.
