    Example-i'm watching abc w/mr muir,@1st commercial it never comes back,it goes to another news show. It does this w/ others too,and, I've seen other people say the same 4 their shows. This tells me that you regard those who watch the app instead of watching the network itself (4 whatever reason) as SECOND CLASS viewers, like a caste system in India.

    You App continues to not load articles. Information is omitted and it Continuously Locks up or Freezes. It will also play articles by itself and will NOT cut off if you exit app. This is absolutely ridiculous. You Do Not Pay For This Phone! How can Carriers Allow you to take over customers phones.

    The live stream is unwatchable. Maybe it is because I am a European but there is an ad break every few minutes. At least on the CBS app the fill the space with 'inhouse' advertising. Even in the UK our commercial channels don't run ads as often as the US does. I don't need a 3min pee break every two and a half minutes!

    This app is garbage. It gives notifications that contain headlines, tap the notification & it takes you to the home page with no mention of that headline. Four times that happened. It did help itself to 4G bandwidth & battery by playing a video of "this couple's proposal" that I didn't ask to see & had less than zero interest in; but genuine news headlines, that it _NOTIFIES_ me of? Those, on the ABCNews app, are a no-show.

    I had to finally just Uninstall this app. The absolute lies and bias was too much to take anymore. The finally straw was the article on Catholics and Biden that was clearly written by a pair of people who would probably like to crucifie every remaining Catholic in the world. There is literally no place to get News anymore, just editorials from both sides. It is NOT ABC News it should be ABC Editorials and Opinions.

    Very upsetting that the share option has disappeared. I have an android. This has forced me to now choose to read this app last among all the news apps I use. I also believe over time the articles have started to become shorter, less detailed, and sometimes leave key facts out that other natoonal news outlets share, such as CNN, NBC, NPR, or Reuters. It is as if they are dumbing it down, or perhaps it is editing to keep articles brief.

    The app has two serious issues. First, it autoplays content and there is no way to disable this horrible setting. Picture me being in a nice silent doctor's office trying to pass the time by catching up on world events. Suddenly my phone starts blaring out audio to everyone in the room because the app started autoplaying something. Turn that off! No one wants automatically playing sound! Second, the app ignores my phone's settings about screen rotation and rotates whether I want it to or not. Phones let you lock their rotation for a reason. This is the ONLY app I've ever seen that ignores the phone's settings and always allows rotation. Android and Google should ban this app from their store until these basic yet serious issues are fixed.

    5 ⭐ 1 ⭐ = 3 ⭐ App itself, 1 star. The sharing icon has just disappeared. Have they changed it to an app you can't share from or is it just me? Videos have always had issues but I'm a reader so that doesn't bother me. But reading a great story and not being able to share it does. Papers like NYTimes, Washington Post have great apps, surely Disney can do better than this app. Now for their content I give 5 stars, it's not bias like so many others are. Toodalo ABC.

    Half the point of a news app is to be able to share the news. Doesn't ABC want more people reading their articles? I genuinely don't understand why this issue has gone on for this long. You can share the stories from the notification dropdown, but not when viewing the article itself, so this obviously isn't a feature that was removed on purpose. Edit: The share button is back.

    This news app is great, however it has a tendency to crash alot (using a mediatek based phone). As a frequent news user this is of no use to me. I hope the reliability can be solved in the future. I suspect the problem lies with the auto playing of videos (they seem to auto play if you keep the video on the visible screen). There appears to be alot of users reporting crashes.

    You have got to do something about the headlines that have white font over pictures with white backgrounds. It's bad enough colorblind people have difficulty reading some of these headlines that blend in but to make everything blend in is ridiculous. And then making a recommendation to improve the app directly to the companyresults in an automatic reply email with a laundry list of instructions of what I need to do to make recommendations about the app. For goodness sake.

I got to see one of the four videos, 2 of the 4 videos i got a run down of today's news, and on the forth vodeo i got and endless stream of ads. So if you want to only read the news this app wrks

    Thumbnails don't always match up with the news stories. Has too many add categories. If I wanted to watch certain categories I would have selected them when I set up the app. I'll use for a while and delete it because of the problems I mentioned. Amateurish in their selections and news coverage. Why can't the news be like CBSN website?

    I dislike a recent change that forces you to the beginning of the site every time you read a story and hit the back button in the app. It send you to the top and you have to scroll back down past the story you just read or lately i jast quit. Too frustrating and can use other apps. Also the app loadssower than other major news sites. This update is a big improvement but added other challenges

    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.

    Without asking me, the app just decided to start pushing notifications to my phone. I hate apps that by default assume they can interrupt me every time they feel like. I'm not going to dig around settings to get an app to let me have my day in peace. There are plenty of other news outlets. I'll just pick one that doesn't pester me my default.

And then a message saying that this news video is not able to be streamed. Why offer the video? Also appears to not have Chromecast support. Pure junk. I don't know how Google allows this app to be in the app store? Samsung Note 8 with Android 9. Note: prefer ABC news but had to switch to CBS app because it just worked.

    You do a good job ABC news. The only suggestion is that you could improve the layout of the news page, when I open a news, there's the title, a video and then the text, but when I scroll down the page the video cover a part o the text before get out of the screen. Don't let the the video tab cover the news when we scroll. Only suggestion.

    With excellent connection, app rolls for a minimum of 5 minutes and will not load news. Had this years ago and uninstalled for this reason. Attempt again to see if glitches were fixed. Since they have not, uninstalled again and will use browser as access. That works great, shame ABC can't get better developers to fix their app.

    Is there a reason you have to re scroll everytime from the top of the page after exiting from a story? I've had the app several months and have never been able to finish reading the news. Fed up with having to find my place everytime I exit a story. Dont use it except for something important that no one else has. Sucks!

    Nice for notifications, but there are a number of technical issues which hold it back. The Feedback button does not work. Upon submitting the feedback form, an error prevents the page from loading, essentially making feedback impossible to submit. The Share button on stories is also broken, revealing no URL to copy or share in apps.

    It does not let you watch a entire news show ~ it'll let you watch 1 clip from a show(usually lasting 8 seconds to maybe at most 20 seconds, then it plays 1 or 2 ads (each ad is LONGER (30 seconds)than the news clips!!, after the ad it'll show another 8 second clip, then the same ad that you saw earlier, etc. It doesn't show the opening of the show nor the closing credits.There's No Way To Get Rid Of The Damn Ads! Doesn't even show the full reports or programs! COME ON ABC! The other networks do

    It is an OK app if you want the top 1 or 2 news stories. The videos attached to the stories almost never match the article itself. Some of the time the videos show a "not compatible with your device" error message. I have a Galaxy S9 plus. There have to be better news apps out there. Delete.

    Videos load & play with sound without request or being selected disturbing those in the immediate surrounding area. A play button should be displayed instead of automaticly loading using data without user approval or consent . Settings do not twart this. Headlines telling me "what I NEED or SHOULD know" are irritating. I don't NEED an Apk telling me what I need.

There are much better ways to watch the news than this app. They should work at making videos play better and add Chromecast support. But the ads work just fine.

I've uninstalled this app and reinstalled it several times and much to my chagrin it keeps performing poorly. I'll jus use other news apps instead which is a shame as I always thought the ABC news bureau was the zenith of unbiased reporting but since I can no longer follow its articles I'll just rely on others

    Very good app for news. News coverage is good. It needs a dark theme. One more request. On any news article video is on the top which shrinks in size and go away as the article is getting pushed up. It is really unconfortable until a certain portion is readed at which point the video goes away completely and that space become stable. Thanks.

    Whomever is responsible for this app needs to be fired for gross negligence and extreme incompetence. Most items clicked-on actually open a different news story. There is a high amount of miss-spellings, incorrect grammar, and some punctuation is wrong.

While you guys are NOTHING but a piece of junks, and it's NOT available for the global audiences (I know about the broadcast rights but we wanted to WATCHED THESE ABC NEWS SHOWS TOO!).

    I had this app for about a year and I liked getting the news, but it was frustrating because it would only pretend to share a news story. Instead of sending a link, it would only send the title of the story, so I copied and googled the title, went to ABC's website, and shared a link from there. Eventually, when I googled the title, I couldn't get to the website, it kept going back to the app, so I deleted the app. Who needs that frustration?

    Irritating reloading for new items. If you want to look at an article towards the bottom of the list, when you go back to the main page, the who list will reload to look for new items. If you want to read articles one at a time, you'll have to scroll down every time when you go back to the main page. A real PITA! If I want to update the main page, let me choose to do it.

Each time it rockets back to the top, I have to scroll back down to the next article I want to read. The app didn't always do this & it's extremely annoying, keeps me from using it as often as I used to. Uninstalling & updating do nothing. Ridiculous. You can do better.

    Endless scrolling... This stupid app sends you back to the top of the home page every time you go back after you read an article. Every. Single. Article.

    This is a great app if you love ads. You get half page ads (most of the time) and full page aps the rest of the time. I uninstalled it.

    Rotates from portrait to landscape as I am closing app; now, rapidly scrolling up to first story, whether or not I am closing app. Lastly, adds pop up during reading of story & break concentration; very rude!!!

    A lot of advertising that "looks" like news. Videos you think will be about the headlined article are an advertisement and may or may not have anything to do with the article.

    Excellent news source, but, similar to their websites, too many old stories (like months old) . Not nearly enough modern and relevant content. But zero other complaints.

    If you want the news in America from the real mainstream media, this app is great to have. No matter what your interest is, or what side of the political spectrum you are, this is news from America Broadcast Company.

    I thought I'll find non-bias news on ABC, But I was wrong!! Big time ! They are very much leaning towards the left, they only fact check Trump not Biden, They decline to report any negative thing about a Democrat!! So if you're looking for factual reporting, and you really want to know what's going on in the world, that's not the place!!

    Back arrow returns to top of app and not the previously selected story. Wrong pictures displayed with story. Returns to top of app while scrolling. Long time user, uninstalling.

    This app used to be great and then it got bugs. And now it just flat out doesn't work for anything audible.

    Returning to the previous page after reading a story now takes you to the top of the page instead of where you left off. Considering changing to different app.

    ABC news app works great for quick national news summary and easy access to more in depth news. Less biased than CNN and FOX but still not traditional straight news. Tends to lean left.

    Ever since the last update the app continually freezes immediately after opening. Keep sending feedback with no response so just uninstalled it. Not worth the hassle.
