Ratings and Reviews
Videos play while app isn’t open
I really do love the app and would definitely rate it 5 stars for the easy navigation, favorites tab, and how it keeps up with my interests but I can’t. The one single downside to this app is that it plays videos whenever my phone connects to Bluetooth audio and also randomly sometimes. It’s extremely frustrating since I spend a lot of time in my car and my Bluetooth takes a minute to sync with my phone. Every single time I have to pull over and shut off the ABC News app that video that I wasn’t even watching in the first place. If this didn’t happen the app would completely be 5 stars.
It just randomly decides to play audio
I had to delete the app because there’s an extremely bizarre glitch it’s been having lately: it starts playing audio of a news feed, while the app is closed. And it’s nearly impossible to turn off. It actually drained my battery and used God only knows how much data because it was doing it for hours once before I finally realized it (my phone was on silent so I couldn’t actually hear it). It happens at least a couple of times a week. I like the news updates, and I feel ABC is better with doing updates than Fox or CNN or anyone else, and the app looks nice enough, but this has caused me to delete it. If it can turn itself on without me doing it, what else can it do without my knowledge? With recent security and privacy concerns about Iphones, it does make me wonder.
Good except for the bug
Infrequently (but multiple times since I downloaded the app) I will turn up the volume of my phone and randomly hear someone talking. Despite the app having not even been opened (yes, I checked), ABC News for some reason starts streaming the audio of some current event. This morning it was Mitch McConnell. I never know how long it’s been going on, but a quick check of my data usage shows that this app has been eating up my data in order to spontaneously stream this audio that I didn’t tell it to. The only way to get it to stop is to actually open the ABC News app then close it again.
I can’t afford the data loss, so finally made the decision to delete the app. Now to find a replacement...
