ABC News is my favorite evening news program but the ABC News app leaves very much to be desired. I get News breaks in my notifications which is fine BUT!!! half the time when I clicked on the story/notifications to read the story/news, the app will go to the story then it rushes to a index/list...then I can't find the story I clicked on. YES!!! I updated the app several times to no avail. YES!!! This is a NEW Android, Galaxy 22+! PLEASE FIX THIS!!!!!!! When fixed, 5 stars we go!!!

Really want to like this app cause I believe ABC news has top tier reporting, and I really appreciate how they're committed to making free content (can't find that with most news sources). But the app itself does not function. The interface is fairly easy to navigate and the look is professional, but it doesn't work. The app will automatically close and crash any time I open most articles. It'd be better to just go to their website. Also PLEASE add dark mode for the love of God and my eyes

Aug 19 - Just downloaded/installed newest version. Installing was successful and the app does not crash as it did in previous versions (thanks guys). As for the adds in the videos it is no different than watching videos on my computer. I just turn off the sound and wait. May 3 - just uninstalled latest version - shuts down within 5 seconds of opening app. Not good, ABC News programmers :-(. Don't waste your time installing this app until it is fixed. Using Samsung S8 Android smartphone.
