has just got worse in the last few iterations. Ugly colours; no option for black background (capacitive screens and battery); crashes frequently;slow loading. Honestly how hard is it to just copy something like BBC app? Or leave it simple like past versions. Stop trying to reinvent the wheel.
I mostly like this app. Easy to use on my Android nexus 4. No ads - yay! Always read Analysis and Opinion. Only downside I find is it's slow to load. Don't agree with one reviewer about left wing bias. More like a lack of the blatant right wing bias you get on so many "news" sites.
What has happened to my neeewwwss!!!! New update is an eye burning mess. Harder to navigate and read. Just, just don't ABC. Can you please change the colour scheme back or give us the option to have a "night" mode to darken the colours. White and bright Yellow....... What the hell where you guys thinking!!! Was 5 star.
If I could undo this update, I would. I really liked the tidy, discrete news content of the older version. I like to read my news...having to sift through videos and other content types is annoying. Bright yellow and white theme is not at all pleasant. Please undo changes. Until then I will stick to the website...unless that has changed too.
I used to love this app, was my go to for daily news... since the update and the change to yellow, its just a mess. Numerous repeats of the same couple of stories and bugger all else. Shopping around for a different news service now.
There needs to be a Royal Commission into why this app sucks SO bad now. Do not, I repeat DO NOT install this if you are still using the Blue ABC app, which was actually the best app on earth. But since Michelle Guthrie had taken over she had brought the death squad to the ABC at the behest of Malcolm Turnbull to make sure everything at the ABC sucks so much that people say "The ABC is really bad these days" and then boom, before you know it the ABC is privatised. No local news like before, horrid yellow, crashing video every 5 seconds, multiple taps required to play a News24. Seriously, this app is a total abomination and whoever is responsible for the vandalism of what was once a masterpiece of coding should be should given the boot just like Rupert Murdoch's lackey, Michelle Guthrie.
