Notifications disappear from my Android Wear device after a couple of seconds so I'm unable to do anything with them.

Kenny McCormick

Google Now Cards How do I get the ABC Google Now Cards?

Michael Rodman

Love this App . Works great.. Awesome App

Tyson Hazell

You lost the other 4 This was a great news app. Just like the news we are talking about the now. Now since your latest update all i have is an app that's taking up space. It won't open, it just crashes. When working it's a 5 star choice. I was forced to give it at least 1 star to post this.

Yasin Odeh

Excellent source of information My favorite it brings a lot of news others don't match

Judie Kaczoroski

Love the updates, it can't figure out how to delete them!...especially love them now that we've moved to Arkansas! Like to keep up with our LA/& Neighborhood News!!

Caimi Caimi

This app SUCKS Won't work it sucks

Lisa Boston

May 2015 update faulty The "what's new" screen loaded but the news app itself won't start. The spinny thing just spins. Reinstalled it a week later--works perfect now.

Ben Clinger

Anyone test this with a Note 3 5?

jason denwalt

Needs too many permissions No idea why they need so many permissions and the app crashes and freezes up all the time

Donald W Kern

ABC news Man, if you stopped running in the background for two minutes I might give 2stars but it seems all ya wanna do is drain my battery and do it as fast as ya can. You've been crashing 3 out of every 4 times. Work for your 5 stars or you're off this phone.

Tim Sherman

Unfortunately just not there There's millions of websites I can read news from, I came to this app to watch and it fails to do so ..

Antoinette Barrino

It's better after the second update!!!

M Collins

Banned from making comments ABC is the new faux

Lisa Portelli

A Waste I hate to say this. But this APP is a total waste of time. See, it crashes 99% of the time. And when I am able to open it, no matter what I tap on, nothing comes up to where I can access any stories. Uninstalling and/or reinstalling are not available options. Using deductive reasoning, I can now arrive at this final conclusion: ABC doesn't want me to have the application in the first place - OR - ABC could care less whether I have it or not. The message I'm getting loud and clear from ABC is,

Ciprian Sandor

Complicated when it doesn't need to be Don't like this app. I will uninstall it right after this. It's complicated whe it needs to be simple. On sports section, there are some 15 stories about basketball. Nothing about world soccer, tennis, formula 1 ... cannot pull up extra stories. Not a good app.

JP Barnard

Crappiest waste of memory in a long time No live news. terrible to navigate. The other ABC News live app is not compatible with my cell phone. my cell phone is only 6 months old. these kids writing their apps need to go back to tech school! Oh, and they want to have access to everything in your phone including the kitchen sink.

brian brinson

Great job Love the UI. Clean, easy to read and neat. Don't mess it up!

TB Brick

No Free Evening Broadcast!?! This is ridiculous. I can see the NBC, CBS, and PBS broadcasts for free. NBC app has an ad before and after. ABC, no you gotta get a different app and pay. Grrrrrrrrrrr...

Tom Black

Ads ruin everything - Take your phone back and delete this app!!!! Tried to watch a news video about a police officer saving a child from choking and had to endure a greedy ad before. I clicked off the whole article. Want to read news and watch videos without your GREEDY ads. If ABC is that hard up or GREEDY, then discontinue the app. Did I say ABC is GREEDY, GREEDY, GREEDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nancy Stone

Freedom of speech movie being shown I think we have this right. You cover the stories very well. Just watched the news and they are right on.

Ronice Schnitzer

I love this app.... we don't get a newspaper so I catch up on with what's going on on the mainland .... ☆Mahalos☆

Scott Geathers

Great reporting! Established scribes who deliver UN-bias news reporting the ole' fashion way. . . "By reporting with Integrity"

Bruce Rettig

Can't uninstall So why won't ABC let me uninstall their app?!?!? I hate when you can't uninstall an app!!!!

G. Ashby

Font size The font for stories is fine, but the font for the lists of articles needs to be adjustable. It's tiny!

Derek Hincks

Good but issues I like the app but I wish the response was quicker when stories were clicked on. There is a lag.

Kourtney Brooks

UPDATE PLEASE This is my favorite news app, but after the last update, after I read a few articles the app starts bugging - black squares appear where letters should be. PLEASE FIX!

Alan Haines

Filtering the news is bad business On Friday I saw both the BBC and NPR ran stories on charges are pending for David Petrous. When will ABC cover this story?

Katrina DeFrang

Ok variety of stories with one major flaw. I like the variety of stories offered but this app has one very significant flaw. The breaking news notifications are great, but when clicking on them in your notification bar the app fails to take you to the pertinent article. It directs to the ABC News homepage. Not helpful.

Jerry M. Vogelsang

ABC news I like it keeps me informed about what's going on in the world and in other county.

A Google User

BAD Crashes a lot even if your phone is in a very great condition. The radio doesn't work. The app focuses on the US. I'm not American so wth..

Лушпай Алексей

Make Russian please

A Google User

What happened?? Since latest update the videos randomly stop playing. Very annoying :(

Brenda Ballard

print font is too huge and I have it set to small. way to big. needs to be more scalable

Jesse Adkins

ABC News App Great app, very informative, breaking alerts, very easy to use!

Debra Harris

ABC @ NBC world News I grew up with. I am waiting on CBS. Wanting more news on line. Don't know how to get to it!

Jose Hernandez

The only app that has made my phone crash in the 4 years I have owned this phone. Something is definitely wrong with this app. I'm sticking to cnn app for now.

Amairani Hernandez

App videos suck Worst app ever! I cannot never finish watching a complete video

DL Carlson

I have relied exclusively on abc I loved seeing David Muir AND Dan Harris this morning on GMA

Vicki Foor

Watch ABC news all the time. Most trustworthy..

Erica Eide

Battery hog Love it but it's constantly running and a major drain on battery.

Steven Vaughn

I watch ABC News all the time great app

sheri burton

Great App Necessary Anywhere anytime breaking news so vitally important!

Glenn Kamery

Top stories need headline caption w pic. I dont choose which news to read based on pic alone. Also seems slower since update

Ken Hollie

No pics. No pictures with latest update.

A Google User

Good I love this app but is there a way to turn off pic preview on notification pull down as I can't see the entire headline now. Would like the option to turn off pics pls

Andy Gref

Unreliable video Video keeps stopping a few seconds into reports

Diana Hart

Can't ever get the news..just the logo

Winlong Sawin

I dont know It provides most amazing, fun and important news. Apart from that, it telecast some of my fav shows.

jeff summers

Too much self loading and running in background.

Marlyn Turow

I get no news. Only instructions

Brian Smith

This app is great I love ABC news you guys give me updates on weather and news when it occurs thanks for being around.

Georgianna Cooper

#2 news The best for now


Slow Way too slow to open, uninstalled

Adriana Mendoza

ABC news Is it real

William Ackerman-Rarick

Fix it Force closes with problems more times than will allow you to actually open and read news

Phyllis Heisler

Good News App ABC is the best

Brandon Pitt

Unnecessary processes and services running unnecessary processes and services running after the app is closed and all notifications are disabled

montie Richard

Text is not scalable

Amy Shepherd

Disappointed I downloaded the application so I can see something that happened locally, but every time I searched for it, I got everything except in my area.

G. Ashby

Font size The font for stories is fine, but the font for the lists of articles needs to be adjustable. It's tiny!

Daniel Hernandez

It doesn't chromecast (where is the chromecast icon?) I try even sharing with other chromecast app like local cast that in matter of fact it works good even with browser videos but with this app is always an error.

Rose Allen

Remember me when you where prom Queen I have the freedom of speech its Americana i can choose to live in a peaceful environment if you needed help i would help you! Even if you short cut .me out ..i will FIND HELP FOR THE KIDS SAFETY

Marcia Gerber

Dependable news source. I love the breaking news alerts that come to my Galaxy S6 Edge. And I have all the other news at the click of my finger.

frank foster

Video This is the absolute worst news app available. None of the videos just play through. They all stop after 10-15 seconds and play again. Awful. No other news app does this to my phone. So whatever background Crap you have connected with this app is making your app worse. If I could 0 stars I would!!!!!!

The Dude Abides

Horrible Horrible app, live stream refuses to stay connected on Chromecast. One of the largest networks on the planet, and they can't keep a simple live stream connected on Chromecast. IDIOTS! I've never seen a programming station work this hard at trying to tune viewers OFF. IDIOTS!

Larry Klipstein

Needs improvement on wear Be nice if you could read entire news articles on Android Wear. Not just a brief note.

Ross Kovelman

Great with news bad with battery Great at providing news and alerts but boy does this app drain a battery. Even if I kill the process it starts up again by itself, probably a setting within the app. They need to do better in this department as batteries in phones barely last 12 hours.

Rafal Blaszkiewicz

Very poor Streams break up every 30 sec on large live events. ABC doesn't seem to have enough pipes to push enough users/bandwidth

Wayne Thornton

ECSTATIC! ¥€¢£¶∆℅°¥©®√~¶∆×÷π A month ago this app was not available in my erea! Ooohh I was pissie about that! ABC is my ONLY go to news broadcasting station! I like how my news is delivered and ABC covers more news stories then any other broadcast stations! The stories and Breaking News is told precisely and no missing information! Reporters are clear n easy to understand and cover more news in a hour then most others can carry in a 24 hour period! So now you know why I titled my comment ECSTATIC! Time to Explore! Thanks Developers:>)

Chuck Wardlaw

Junk app! The live feed at the top is running too fast to read and after a minute or two begins to be black squares. The news story does the same thing, the letters become black squares. Uninstalled!

Joe Fritschle

Live bar goes nuts on galaxy s4.


Best app This app keep me up to lots of data and if better thannthe other news apps

Michael Barron

Chromecast issues Has alot of Chromecast issues to overcome. Also no captions.

Chadwick Vallandingham

Garbage Terrible layout. Long load times. Ads everywhere. Ugh.

Dotty Bice

MAJOR DATA HOG Had to uninstall because it was using more data than any other app on my phone, yet I rarely opened it. Bad news!!


I have not enjoyed this app since installing. It constantly FREEZES. requiring me to reboot my tablet. The font for list of articles is ridiculously small and difficult to read with the naked eye. It's not worth the one star rating. Zero is more appropriate.

Amy Sielski

This is my main source of news as I do not have cable. Lately none of the videos will play properly, it states on the screen that is in unable to play video, even though it plays the sound, without the picture.

John DeVries

Search feature Why is the no story look up feature? I'd give it a five star rating if they had that capability.

Rob S.

Videos dont play The ads play perfectly so the developer makes money but then the videos stop or only the audio is heard. This is with full wifi.

Michael Dean Baughn

Won't even start Every time I try to open the app it crashes. Galaxy Note 3.

Jacub Emery

I can't watch any videos I can't watch any videos, of corse the ADs work perfectly and even play over the video if you skip back

Kenneth Pehle

App is kinda slow Videos don't play or constantly buffer and are unwatchable on LTE and WiFi

Joe Matta

REALLY GOOD NEWS APP ! ! ! I really enjoy the luxury of getting my home town news when it happens on this User friendly App. Thanks [email protected]

Pat Long

Poor streaming service Video always stalling. A problem all my other streaming apps don't have. Very frustrating.

Parvati Bergamo

Worthless Crashes immediately after opening. Does this no matter how many times I try. Uninstalling and reinstalling did nothing. Utterly unusable.

Nicholas Gavrilos

???? CBS and ABC must have teamed up to find the worst app developers in the planet. The most common features being "this app has stopped working" and streaming being interrupted by things like email notifications. This app is horribly executed.

Michael L. Ward

App broken won't open, connected to WiFi, keeps telling me I need internet connection, when already connected.

Derek Kreft

Needs to be fixed. Like others have mentioned, videos don't work. Don't send me a notification to a video that won't play.

Sharon Keeney

Trying to watch video news conference when video crashes and I get a pop-up that says video stopped working!

Michael Williams

Plays, but crashes. Samsung Tab 4. UPDATE: Works well on Galaxy S5, but it's so slow. Getting better, but still needs some work.

Brenda Ballard

Please make an extra small font I may be 50 but I'm not blind. Please give us an option for extra small font. Even the small font is too big and requires too much scrolling. I like to see more on the page.

Michael Wittig

Fox News for Android Easy to use. Can follow stories automatically as updates come through.

Angela Martinez

ABD APP I would have given five stars but it glitches at times. Otherwise I really like app so far.

Anita W

Works great! But... (V. 2.15.4.) The station identification/Menu access bar at the top of the screen should auto hide. It does not. ABC should know this is ridiculous for users using a 5 - 7 inch screen! Fortunately, all news apps don't do this. NBC, CBS, and BBC have figured it out. ABC get onboard!

Ruth Snyder

Nothing on---updated now with chromecast! Everytime I get a notification that something is happening they say see it live. I just went immediately and as always there is nothing to see. Just a posting that I should check back. How aggravating. OK Oct 22 2014 update. I am actually getting the news live AND through chromecast! Super improvement. Thank you! 10 13 2015. Watch live debate! ? Ha. Watch posted news to stay tuned for coverage but no debate. Why?

Danika Viola

Live Trying to cast live TV on this is an absolute joke. It would go back to the abc logo every 5-10 min during a live debate, and I ended up not being able to watch it at all.

Mark Molyneux

No news App will open but no news. Just a blue screen and the timing symbol spinning away. Tried various sections and even tried opening ABC programs. Still the same. Uninstalled and installed twice with no change.

Tao Exile

DEFINE "BREAKING NEWS" No Captions for Live Video. Thier "Breaking News" push notifications will wake you up at 2 AM because a celebrity farted. Its annoying.

Yvonne Guetter

Definitely one sided I have to get "real" news from alternative media. Remember this is msm & is owned by the 1%. Keep an open mind. Remember this app is owned by the 1%

Mitchell Scott

Worst news app by a country mile Total garbage. Long load times. Endless commercials. After commercial ends and the news story begins, for 45-60 seconds you're looking at a still screen of the product whose commercial you have just got done watching while you are hearing the audio but not watching video of the news. Uninstalling.

Terry Kortness

Top stories are ALL political. Nothing else is top story news worthy except for politics in the U.S.?

dont care

This looks looks like a killer App. I love the way it looks. Unfortunately I haven't played a video thru yet.

Michael Gibbons

Good Very good app. I have Adaway installed to control the CRAP that comes with it ads. Adaway gets rid of the CRAP.

lin mackerman

5 stars Beautiful app. Thank you for app!

Adam Fernandes

Reliable ABC News is the best source of news out there! This app is updated frequently and it never misses breaking stories

Stephen David

Unfortunately abc news has stopped Site does not stay on, just a few seconds, then it freezes with the message above. Worthless.

Pat Goodrich

New home Couldn't get all the printed matter that went w/picture on the right

Vadim Yarovoy

Good, but hangs Some stories pics don't respond to touches

Francis Gibbons

Nice news with Chromecast support

Vincent Ellison

Better than CNN

Ty Briner

Stable, good quality, and easy to use. Chromecast supported Haven't had any freezes or excessive adds. My personal experience has been great so far. Keep it up ABC. Much better in terms of app stability when compared to other news apps.

Francisco Cervantes

This ABC news report; Only this station I have full respect 100%. Willing to share everything including full access on memory chip and I will give this cell to government of F.B.I. need help to show real hate and bullies on websites, Google and many more full access granted by me God is my witness. Have shaking bad interview live to show the world what they did to me!#! Everything including Angie Harmon to show That I apologize 1000's of time's, so she can see the full hate and bullying on the website or Facebook and Twitter. I support Australia for doing this for me.

Donna Alsbury

Won't recognize my wifi I just installed the app on my Moto X Pure and it doesn't find my wifi. The app works fine on my old phone. Not sure if is a Marshmallow problem or device problem.

Sergio Gonzalez

Video blows This app struggles with video. Funny thing is the commercial videos come through just fine. The actual video of new news is about 50/50 and very frustrating.

Van B

Bad Widget On the widget, click on an article. The app opens to all headliners, instead of the article. Sooooo... This widget is just an ad?

Desirae M

Works good when it messages me. Dosnt always message me. It stopped . The last message I got is when Garry Shandling died...

Ione Logan

ABC News They keep up to date on So California and national news.

maria robinson

Great app. I tape the news every morning now I can get the breaking news on the go.

Audrey Spicahunley

I can't read the articles What's up with this app? I can't open the articles. Useless!!!

Dan Coble

This one works on crome,WOW,! Way to go!

Josh King

Same news the passed 3 days

Stephanie Mullen-Fudge

Still using the app! And Works just fine!

justin mays

I like it, but I hate that I have to download yet another app just to go to a news article directly from Twitter. Never been a big fan of websites that force you to use their app in order to see content from a different app. So for that reason, 3 star

Benjamin Puente

love it it's very good

Tomas Rivera

Highly recommended It keeps me up to date.

Wendell Reynolds

Great news around the world Love this app.

Stephen Kahn

Awesome app

Ricky Du

Terrible with video Informative but watching video is so annoying, choppy even with a fast connection.

Chad Sanders

Good News, Really Slow Very slow to launch app. Would love a radio ONLY option. Switched listening to ABC from Slacker because took forever to launch and this app is better but not by much. Love the radio format, different stories and good updates.

Chad Harries

Frustrating When you tap on the main image, it won't go to the article. I have to tap over and over again. This was so annoying I uninstalled the app. Plenty of other news apps out there just as good without little bugs like this.

Denise Rial

Love this app! I hate missing my news! I love Good Morning America, so, if I missed it occasionally, I don't have to now! Thank you!!

David R Possin

Uninstalled Constantly stops. Update turned on notifications and since it stops, there is no way to turn them off.

charles mason

It used to be great... The app itself has been glitchy at best, as of late. Most recent update took away night mode, which I loved, so I will be looking for a new news source. The layout updates are awful and add 0 value. They took something that was working fine, and destroyed it!

Carolyn Ngo

Bring back dark theme Why did you take away the dark theme feature? Remove the blue light. you were the only reliable news app that I could depend on without hurting my eyes. please bring back the dark background feature.

Jacub Emery

Still can't watch live broadcast at all I can't watch any videos, of course the ADs work perfectly and even play over the video if you skip back

Stephen Prettyman

The update sucks The new layout sucks and is scroll city compared to before. I hate the fact that night mode isn't an option anymore. Who signed off on this update?

Candy Beauchamp

Well, there goes my go to news app What is with the lack of words? Why all the scrolling? Why not a list off headlines? And you killed night mode? Yes I READ the news. Crazy, I guess. The update sucks, scroll scroll scroll.... Bleh. Previous version 4 star: Love the app, the best news app out there. The nighttime reading is fabulous! Lately, for the past month or so, I get the dreaded stopped working error. Eventually, it opens, but is super annoying to come back hours later to get the news.

Bridget Gallagher

Use to be my favorite go to news app not any more...I prefer to read my News not watch it...Sorry not a fan at all anymore

Kathryn Munsell

Last update The recent update is not user-friendly and bogs down your phone. Its hard to navigate if you just want to read the news. Will be uninstalling this after having it for years.

Switchtrack Grizzle

It was a good news app before the overhaul. Now I can't tell what the hell is going on. Uninstalled.


What a mess after this update, lost Chromecast Support completely! Updated this app and it was a strong downfall, notifications turned on and it lost Chromecast Support, what a way to ruin a news app, thanks for nothing!

Roman S

Better appearance, BUT... The old version could not share stories via Viber, nor can the new one. Can you please look into that? Any advice from the developers?

Pat Schwab

They updated the app and it is horrible. Cannot read columns like before. Too much video content.

Gail Cronquist

Confusing, poor graphics What a mess! New "update" makes a bad site even worse! Put it back the way it was please.

Joshua Rivera

Force closing after update... I don't know if anyone else is having this problem but with me, after the recent update, the app just force closes. Anyone else having the same issue?

Bruno Trapikas

Would have til earlier today when they changed what was a nice concise news briefing to a bunch of videos and pictures all over the place. Now its just scroll scroll scroll to get what I used to at a glance.

Leo LaRose

NO panaramic view (auto rotate) I read the news every morning on my Samsung tablet, I can't read it like I did, I have to take it out of the case and turn it. You all screwed it up , fix it like it was.

Sharon Clabaugh

Why did you change your format? ABC news app was my go to news. Not anymore. Please change it back to it's user friendly no frills app.

Chris Ostolski

Programmer fail You forgot to include auto rotate you really think anybody's going to watch this sideways time to order new software engineers

cliff selby

Nice update. Like layout. Big improvement. Keeps you interested for hours shows -sections.

Ira Rodriguez

This new update, really hate it Lack of landscape viewing, and comercials still overlap the news videos

Adam Saye

Not a fan of the update. Might be time to find a new News app.

Raymond Burke

No longer works on Nexus 6P and Pixel C

Tracey Budine

Hate the new layout! My phone did an update today and I hate the new layout. The older layout was handier. Seriously thinking of uninstalling it now.

Shanley Thornton

Can't cast Would be better of you could cast to tv.

Lisa Trainor

Font too small With this update, the headline fonts,she too small and still can't be adjusted.

Marci LaRocque

July 15th App updated. New format is horrible.

Bobby Burgess

Thanks but now lacks one feature. The new design is cool but now no chromecast in the new design the old design had it.

Hello There

Update Please bring back the option for "Dark Theme".... Why would u take that away....cost u 2 stars!

Yaniv G

Terrible! The app keeps crashing and is very unstable.

Shelly Powell

Update I despise the newest update!

Michael Hall

Crashes Force closes when first opening on Samsung Galaxy S5 with Android Marshmellow. Been doing this for a week even after removing data and reinstalling.

Tim Strasser

Pure left wing news. Gave ABC News app a chance, but nothing negative towards Hilary. She is just everything awesome!?. Please be an honest source of all news. I'll look elsewhere.

Sonyia Miller

Uninstalling..... After using this app for several years this ridiculous new update has forced me to uninstall. The new layout is atrocious and the lack of a dark theme makes it even worse.

Lee Ann N

Difficult to navigate. Links from Facebook don't open the're left with having to dig for it. And, in my case, never being able to locate. Antiquated interface. #sadface Links from Facebook don't open the're left with having to dig for it. And, in my case, never being able to locate. Antiquated interface. #sadface

Kelly Berryman

Miss the previous version Do not like the update. I miss night mode, which was easier on the eyes in low light situations. This used to be my favorite news app. Now it is rarely used. The simplicity was one of its greatest benefits, allowing me to quietly catch up on the news. Now, not so much.

Anneka Jacobs

No Cast Icon I loved this app because it gave me access to local news every morning, but since the update the cast icon has disappeared making it impossible to watch the news in the morning!!! I'm so frustrated, what is the issue?!?!?!!!

Howard Z

Widget very often shows old news Something as simple as autoupdating the widget a few times each day to display the latest news stories seems to elude the skillset of the programmers.


Doesn't work It continues to tell me that I do not have a internet connection when I have both a Wi-Fi and cellular internet connection working. All other news apps work perfectly NBC CBS CNN.

Douglas Headlee

Was good! Breaking News Alerts constantly appear and nothing is there when clicked. Annoying. Please fix!

Jennifer Corbett

Bad setup Not user friendly. Since update, no more quick news updates. Time wasted scrolling through all the video first.

Van B

Worst News App One of the worst app out there. Poor design. Videos are not marked as video. A widget that doesn't work. Uninstalling...

Leo LaRose

Still sucks Put the viewing option back on the app so I can watch and read the new on my tablet in the 16:9 view, you can do this it was there before . Until then I will not and many other older people have not and will not watch this app.

Karen Sester

Notifications overly frequent Notifications overly frequent and buggy. They are sometimes blank and you can't clear them. I turn them off in my settings, and they are back on in a day or two. Please, ABC,let me control my phone.

davina glow

This app sucks This version is totally unstable. The "live feed" screen message constantly flickers and is unreadable. The fonts are blurred. So annoying.

Mark Tucker

Bring back the old format this new one is horrible the latest upgrade is not an upgrade its an inconvenience

Ken Barduca

Won't stop Keeps forcing breaking news even though I have everything unchecked. It just won't stop, Uninstalling.

Steven Schiendelman

Terrible ABC is an embarrassment to the news organizations of the world. They are so left wing and with how they cover news it's absurd.

Dustyn Adams

Needs More Needs More articles and less videos, ads aren't very relevant to the category and app seems cheap for how big ABC is.

James Talarico

REALLY? Phone format only??? Sorry but tablets are just as important as phones. You lose as I uninstalled 2 minutes after seeing I couldn't view in tablet landscape mode. Bye Bye

S mazz

Your commercials showing Moslem women rapping is ridiculous. Don't support Sharia law & the burka

Sue G

Never showd video I want to share No news app provides video seen on news that I want to share

Does Not Seem To Have A Tablet Mode The app seems to only be focused on phones. The app screen does not rotate for use on a tablet. Where is the capability to watch full broadcasts of evening news broadcast? I would like to view the full broadcast when I miss it on TV.

Bloated and Slow Strongly dislike the new layout and emphasis on video with the latest updates.

Other news apps can't compare! Love the new simplistic design and live coverage is awesome. ?

Problems-A-Plenty Since the update, this app has had the prevalent problem of not linking headlines with the correct article... Today for instance, every article but maybe 2 are all going towards this one, boring, story... Of course it's not ABC's fault it's my devices fault.

Biased All 'boutClinton ABC has sold out, totally biased.

App freezes while listening to audio clips When listening to audio clips screen freezes and controls do not work. Did not try video.

I really loved this app until ... The widget has not been updating and shows old news. This is the 4 x 1 widget. Please, please fix!
