  1. Mysteriouz Cat-avatar

    This app is ok but there is some problems while checking out what happening around the world. I love watching (mostly) World News Tonight with David Muir every night in the US (morning here in the Philippines) but I never seen full episode of WNT on livestream on the app yet. I tried it up but do not worry. I'll keep this app for the latest news alerts. Please fix this app for better and convenient way for all users, like me. Maraming Salamat po. (Thank You.) 🇵🇭🇵🇭

  2. Henry DeShazo-avatar

    Right there in the ad they say "if you like getting behind in daily news.." and that's why listening to this app will ensure you stay uninformed on the latest news. However if you like being 3 days or more behind this app's for you!

  3. Henry, Oliver Jr-avatar

    Henry, Oliver Jr


    Not fully functional.. Never send any notifications even though it's set up through the app , as well as my device. As breaking news surface I wonder why my ABC news app never notify me of any breaking news. News content is great, video, most of the time will not load and my internet is 150mbps. I love the news articles but app functions are terrible. and sadly abc news does nothing to fix these problems.

  4. Peter Zimmerman-avatar

    Peter Zimmerman


    Love the App, but whenever I try to send a link to the article all it sends is the headline..... No Link. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!

  5. Brian Ip-avatar

    The images of some of the stories often got mixed up. How hard is it to match the correct image with its story? I now go to CNN news more often than ABC news. They do a much better job in news accuracy.

  6. Richard Neill-avatar

    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.

  7. Armando Soto-avatar

    After I read an article, I return to main app screen to see more articles but the screen scrolls up to the top. I have to scroll down to find where I was, read an article then all over again it scrolls up. Totally irritating.

  8. Michael Knoell-avatar

    It's a news app - but it "talks" too much. I try to keep up with notifications but when an app shows 15 notifications every 4 hours it's time for a muzzle.

  9. Adrian Jackson-avatar

    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.

  10. Susan ChunYoung-avatar

    Susan ChunYoung


    Repeated attempts and seems "Listen" doesn't work. Cannot listen to World News Tonight w David Muir. Will uninstall.

  11. B L DUNCAN-avatar

    ABC news is a good news source. The stories are good, the live streaming is good. Continue to update & improve the app for a better customer experience....

  12. Judy Groce-avatar

    ABC doesn't update this like it should. I've heard things on my local TV news that don't appear here until hours later. I think I'll change to another news source .

  13. Lora Teggart-avatar

    I love getting up to date news daily but any time I try to share an article, it never allows me to. Hate that!!!

  14. Stan Stacy Jr.-avatar

    Keeps saying won't play on this device after playing for 15-20 seconds. Samsung Galaxy Note 10 5 G. Sucks.

  15. Dan Simms-avatar

    Can't share any articles effectively. Slow. I've used much better via npr for example.

  16. Kirk Sanders-avatar

    Biased reporting and way too many "breaking" news notifications with no options other than off or on

  17. k c-avatar

    Sucks. The new Democratic blue election style frame and no presidential news. Worst biased reported! Trying to influence the election outcome.

  18. joe jacob-avatar

    Great news feed, but starting today program crashing 16x in 4 hours

  19. Thomas Smith-avatar

    Ads shouldn't auto play, that uses data!

  20. Jessie Jimenez-avatar

    Not able to share articles to social media feeds.

  21. Michael Sizemore-avatar

    Michael Sizemore


    Start watching videos on Samsung Note 8 and then video quits, with message that video will not play on this device! Deleting this worthless app!

  22. Никола Дујковић-avatar

    Никола Дујковић


    App is nice. Very good Walt Disney Company,nice ABC News.

  23. Elma Royal-avatar

    I always love listening ABC News. This is great. Thank you google. I considered ABC overall favorable and good respectability

  24. K F-avatar

    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.

  25. kim paul-avatar

    Stupid app. Everytime I finish an article, the app blasts me back to the top of the news feed. I don't want to go to the top, I want to continue working down to the articles I want to read. 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.

  26. Terrence Falin-avatar

    Free app gives the BEST NEWS IN THE WORLD right to my mobile device. Awesome!!

  27. Chris Boston-avatar

    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.

  28. Victor Chen-avatar

    No comments section, please add it to the app. The website has it.

  29. Chris Ostolski-avatar

    This will be my second review although the app works fine it is totally inaccurate how about the listings that come across your screen you won't connect to them when you go to the you'll be directed to whatever they feel like giving youand lucky you if you can find what they were referring to in the headline I simply use this app as a search to go to other sights and read the news I rarely open the app I think they can do a lot better

  30. Diane Beckwith-avatar

    It sucks always the same news literly everyday:(

  31. Reid Kinlaw-avatar

    Most of the time the photo or video does not match the article. When you select an article and then back out it takes you all the way back to the top. Like ABC news but this app has me trying to find another news agency with a better app.

  32. Mason Margaret-avatar

    Absolutely exceptional in every way

  33. Stacey Mark-avatar

    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

  34. Kurt Achter-avatar

    Everytime I back out of an article, it automatically goes to the top of the main page instead of going to where i left annoying!

  35. Dallen Rowe-avatar

    This has to be one of the worst Apps for news. Please just fix it.. picture dont line up to the stories, sever server lag, when going in between stories ot takes you to the top of the list every time so you are constantly having to scroll down, adds are now plaguing the app hiding as news stores. The worst part is this has been this way for years and only gotten worse. Come on guys...

  36. Danny Burks-avatar

    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!

  37. Dane Jensen-avatar

    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.

  38. Bailey-avatar

    This used to be a great app and very clean and smooth to use. Now whenever I finish reading an article the app takes me all the way to the top of the page. And I'll have to scroll through the 30+ articles I've already passed. I'm moving to a different news app because it's just too inconvenient.

  39. A Ford-avatar

    Reporting layout is poor.

  40. Ramesh Sinha-avatar

    While using the App , when one selects a headline from their list page for detailed reading, and after completion of the reading of the news returns to the list page ,the App always returns to the top of the list page which is very inconvenient. For convenience in continuing the reading , the App should return to the place where the news headline is located on the headlines list page. Kindly get the bug resolved .

  41. Pat Lopez-avatar

    For over a week, I can't share stories from this app. 😥😥😥😡 not happy about that!

  42. Rhonda Greer-avatar

    can't stop news videos from autoplay. Also, after finish reading a story, hit the back button and the app takes me all the way to the very first/top article. i then must scroll down to where i was last. pretty irritating. on my cell phone its perfect. on my chrome book it's terrible.

  43. Kelly Snow-avatar

    I love ABC news. They have always been at the top of my go to news list to get the latest news and updates on all the most important news for me.

  44. Rodger Dotson-avatar

    I like the news ABC provides however the app is very annoying. The app always goes to the top of the list after reading an article. Then you have to scroll back down to find the next article.

  45. Kevin Bruce-avatar

    This app is good for alerts, but once you try to click on any articles it just crashes.

  46. The Culbertson Family-avatar

    The Culbertson Family


    ABC News app is a wonderful must have application for EVERYONE! This, easy to navigate, app is & does everything it says it's capable of & then some! I, highly, recommend this application for anyone, especially those who like, clear to the point news of our planet.

  47. Jack Miller-avatar

    Getting frustrated with the recent change of this app where after reading content and you go back and the app starts all the way from the beginning so you have to scroll all the way down the list where you left off.

  48. Michelle Waite-avatar

    Pictures dont align with photos. Confusing at times. Also the organization of the app could be more user friendly. I have to scroll past the interests list every time I'm reading articles. Dont like that at all.

  49. Bird Feeder-avatar

    Very annoying that it won't let you back out of a story and continue down the page like it used to, and like every other news app does. Every time you back out of a story, it scrolls all the way back up to the top of the home page.

  50. adela42-avatar

    Used to be good. Now everytime I get done reading a story it scrolls all the way back to the top. Sometimes scrolls to the top for no reason. Fix it or it's time for a different news app.

  51. Chip Cline-avatar

    App runs in the background without permission, even after forcestop it still is running. Solution: deleted the app.

  52. Kathleen Kane-avatar

    Every time I exit an article, app scrolls back up to lead story on the top of the page. Very irritating. I dont stay long on this site. Content seems fine. Like other news sites.

  56. Cheryl-avatar


  57. Kristin Ruhnke-avatar

  95. John Reed-avatar

    Good , balanced reporting . Tells it as it is , without varnish or untruths . Glad I can still access it via android in the UK. Nice touch to be able to save stories and reread later. Tells the truth about Putin & his long term legacy of his cleptocracy & abuse of the West and Western values.
