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.
Continues to gives a comprehensive summary of the real news from an Australian perspective despite hostile politicians. The no nonsense headlines-based menus make navigation easy. If I have a criticism, it is the inability to prefence types of stories: I have no time for cricket or football for example and would prefer to not dig for environment reporting. But overall streets ahead of anything else in Oz.
ABC is the most important source of news information. But this app has some problems-: App loads slowly, Links in stories in the news point to the mobile news site, why not pull the news direct from the news site in the first place? Would really like to be able to rely on this app. It needs to cope with Australia's poor internet connections.
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.
Use to a great source of news, now it barely has any relevant news. No local content. It's like it's had the guts ripped out of it. I'm missing so much information about current news events? I use to see or hear about something & could open ABC News & find a related article. Now I just get stupid breaking news alerts about sporting events. WTF happened?
