I Give Up

Ground Hog Day all over again. Just downloaded the newest incarnation of this diseased app. Did all the tricks I know. Reboot, delete, re-install. Nothing has changed. Will not open and crashes every single time. I am waiting for the television version to crash now. I have an expensive radio too. I am scared to tune it to ABC. I can imagine smoke pouring out. ABC= Always Busted and Crashing. Goodbye!

A New Day
Well, after a year, I must admit it is now so much better than my last review. The last review was primarily about what seemed at the time, to be an automatic crash feature that went on too long. Happily, I have re-installed a well designed and reliable news app ABC has now created. And it will be very active for quite a while as the events in this country, or for that matter, the world, are only growing larger, more explosive, and much more frequent. Well done ABC and good luck!

ABC News Live

I really appreciate the live coverage (especially minus the chatter of commentators). The comment thread allowed people to comment as they got news from various stations around the world.

I didn’t care for the reporter going into a cave to show us what it was like (similar to reporters standing in the middle of a hurricane or icy bridge to show the conditions)! This is unnecessary and could have potentially diverted rescuers from their mission if something unexpected had happened to him.

I much preferred to wait for the cameras from the head cams of the Navy Seals.

News coverage has been sparse and spotty on the MSM channels.

Your camera coverage has been outstanding and I appreciate seeing events unfolding on the scene rather than listening to the regular “star” reporters telling us about it as they sit around a table giving us canned news and constant coverage of 45 wrecking our nation.

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.
