Update: format works ! Old: New format doesn't work at all
New update: Re-installed after I heard of a second new update! Yay no more automatic video playing! No more stopping my music and most of all I get to read my need again!
Old:I seldom delete apps but I have to I can't have my music turn off everytime I try to read the news in this app. No one can watch all those videos and if we could we wouldn't be turning to this app we would watch the actual news. I'm super disappointed. Most of us use this app at work or class or places where we want to know quickly what is happening. ABC 7 please please change the format !! I want my app back.
ABC7 news app
This would be a great app if only I could stay connected while I am reading a news story. I usually get disconnected at least 5-10 times while reading a news story. If I am inclined to continue reading, I have to get back into the app(as if for the first time,) scroll down (again) to my story, select the story, then scroll down (again)to where I stopped reading (before being disconnected.) I have to repeat this process 5-10 times before I can finish reading a news story. I don’t have this problem while watching a video though. The app is great for keeping updated on breaking news.
New update BUT STILL HAVE 60 sec ad 🤬🤯 before you get to hear about the breaking news
Been watching for this new update for days , was so excited when it came and in your description box you said we’ve heard all the concerns and we fixed him and then some... no you didn’t!!! Make us sit through a 60+ second ad before getting the breaking news story which you give for concern of the general public... to everyone it looks like you’re more worried about getting your ad money before notifying public. Ever so many different ways to have ad placements that do not conflict with breaking news news conferences which you guys already know because they’re all over your app they pop up nonstop. Sad and disappointing when needing to have a 60 second ad about nothing before we can get to news that can potential he save lives so grossly disappointing
