  • ABC News App Aug 16, 2019

    By NC Jeff
    I’ve enjoyed the timeliness of the ABC news app. It would be awesome if there was a user feature that would give users to option to suppress articles from their news feed once they have clicked to open them. This option would save users time, since they wouldn’t have to scroll through previously-viewed news stories to find the ones they haven’t yet read. Time is money, as the saying goes.

    I have an issue with ABC news in all platforms, I can't create an account because "I'm not elegible for it". I already sent a feedback in the app but they didn't answer me. I would like you help to solve this problem or at least explain why I can't have an account.

  • NEW ABC News app May 14, 2018

    By Heisenberg Q
    First of all-you should’ve sent us (iPad Pro users) a push message for an update app. The previous app started getting sluggish & slow for things to open up for months. I just quit using the app. I finally deleted the app and went to the App Store and downloaded the new one. I don’t like the optics and don’t like the layout of the NEW app. The old one was much better. It functioned & worked better. You could surf better. The optics, the format, was better then this NEW app. Plus there are several things missing on this New app that are not on the old one. I’ll probably just use it less. Depend on it less.

    This app is ok but there is some problems while checking out what happening around the world. I love watching (mostly) World News Tonight with David Muir every night in the US (morning here in the Philippines) but I never seen full episode of WNT on livestream on the app yet. I tried it up but do not worry. I'll keep this app for the latest news alerts. Please fix this app for better and convenient way for all users, like me. Maraming Salamat po. (Thank You.) 🇵🇭🇵🇭

    The notifications of stories don't always match the stories when you open the app. OFTEN, the wrong photos are placed with the stories.

  • Navigation issues on iPad... Jun 6, 2018

    By Denisetally
    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.

  • It just randomly decides to play audio Apr 18, 2019

    By Rebel Yell 5
    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.

    Right there in the ad they say "if you like getting behind in daily news.." and that's why listening to this app will ensure you stay uninformed on the latest news. However if you like being 3 days or more behind this app's for you!

  • Good except for the bug Dec 19, 2019

    By Dcapit8or
    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...

    Stupid app. Everytime I finish an article, the app blasts me back to the top of the news feed. I don't want to go to the top, I want to continue working down to the articles I want to read. Each time it rockets back to the top, I have to scroll back down to the next article I want to read. The app didn't always do this & it's extremely annoying, keeps me from using it as often as I used to. Uninstalling & updating do nothing. Ridiculous. You can do better.

  • ABC News Live Jul 9, 2018

    By Brenda (USA)
    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.

  • Awesome AppleTV app Jul 13, 2019

    By Tigzola
    I got home from work at 1:30 EST and I wanted an update on the storm in NOLA. I found nothing on my AppleTV weather apps. I went to my news apps and opened the ABC app. Even though I didn’t find any current information, I found something even better! The option to have the split screen is phenomenal!!! On top of that, there are multiple cams that I can select on my split screen. This is why I cue up David Muir when I get out of work! ABCNews is awesome and the app is even better!

  • Quality Journalism at My Fingertips! Aug 17, 2019

    By awnw92
    This app provides instant access to the global resources of ABC News with breaking headlines, morning rundowns, nightly recaps, and well-written, quality stories. You can filter news based on your interests if you wish, and you can set up notifications to reflect those interests. I open this app multiple times and a day, and I enjoy the feeling of connectedness with the news it gives me!

  • Starts Playing Videos by Itself Oct 27, 2019

    By 09deb19
    For some odd reason, this app will start playing news stories all by itself. It is a great app to have to keep up with things, but I hate that it just starts playing, even if it hasn’t been opened in days.

  • Videos play while app isn’t open Jul 28, 2019

    By Gertrude Hawkins
    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.

  • Great app but.. Jun 10, 2020

    By stoneysteph
    I hope the people behind this app see this and make a fix for it because it’s getting kind of annoying and makes me want to just delete the app all together. When I have the app closed and go to turn my volume up or down (when I’m listening to music or watching a video on another app) all of a sudden ‘ABC NEWS LIVE’ will start to play in the background without me even having the app open. It keeps going until I actually OPEN the app and FORCE it to shut off but closing the app. It’s the strangest thing and it’s just getting annoying so I’m hoping y’all come up with a solution but I don’t think I’m the only one.

    Nice for notifications, but there are a number of technical issues which hold it back. The Feedback button does not work. Upon submitting the feedback form, an error prevents the page from loading, essentially making feedback impossible to submit. The Share button on stories is also broken, revealing no URL to copy or share in apps.

    Irritating reloading for new items. If you want to look at an article towards the bottom of the list, when you go back to the main page, the who list will reload to look for new items. If you want to read articles one at a time, you'll have to scroll down every time when you go back to the main page. A real PITA! If I want to update the main page, let me choose to do it.

  • FIX YOUR APP, ABC NEWS! Feb 8, 2020

    By PT1999-2001
    This app doesn’t work half the time. I can’t get the news to play, and sometimes it’s because of the ads lagging to load. Other times, it doesn’t matter how long you wait, it just won’t play the news segment at all. It’s gotten worse since the app added ads before each segment. I like ABC news, but this app is the worst! I’ll likely use other apps for news if it doesn’t improve with the next update. The order of segments for longer shows, like 20/20 make it impossible to watch, because you have to scroll down to segment 1 of 11 and by the time you get there, it’s frozen up because it can’t handle not playing all the ads. Pretty much useless. FIX YOUR APP, ABC NEWS!!!

    This has to be one of the worst Apps for news. Please just fix it.. picture dont line up to the stories, sever server lag, when going in between stories ot takes you to the top of the list every time so you are constantly having to scroll down, adds are now plaguing the app hiding as news stores. The worst part is this has been this way for years and only gotten worse. Come on guys...

    This will be my second review although the app works fine it is totally inaccurate how about the listings that come across your screen you won't connect to them when you go to the you'll be directed to whatever they feel like giving youand lucky you if you can find what they were referring to in the headline I simply use this app as a search to go to other sights and read the news I rarely open the app I think they can do a lot better
