Essential app for keeping informed This is one of my most useful apps. The news summaries are my essential reading each morning especially as most of the topics won't be covered by regular media services. My only peeve, and a minor one at that, is that occasionally a "story" is only a set of links which take time to open. On such occasions a better intro and summary could give the reader a bit more info. Otherwise it's way ahead of any other news service for its breadth of coverage.
Excellent news source Use it all the time to keep up to date with news. Have stopped watching morning news on commercial TV as it is too shallow and repeats 4 or 5 articles incessantly. This app gives a much wider spread of news and you can pick what you want to see more detail on. Really is very good.
Some problems. Content good. The new election update does not work. When i click on the breaking news notification it takes me somewhere else and i lose the breaking news! Their programmers need to go back to school. Also I cannot enlarge photographs. Software not up to standard.
Meh, arguably better than nothing I suppose Regularly out of sync between headlines and articles. Shows blank screen instead of articles often. Often need to visit the website in order to actually get content anyway. Overall a very poor experience and waste of abc resources.
Fantastically Useful I happen to agree with others who have mentioned that paired with iView, the ABC is providing excellent value for taxpayer money with this. To anyone who complains about being "beeped at about headlines neither useful or of interest to them" - may I politely suggest they mute the Notifications Volume on their phone :) So many apps beep relentlessly that I find this to be an excellent sanity saver...
Great app Been using this app for over a year and couldn't be without it. Read the stories every day and like the alerts for breaking news. Easy navigation. Excellent way to keep up to date with the news. A must have on my phone
