    9/23/22 App fixed & now opens. Newly formatted - what I had bookmarked is gone 😢😢😢. - got into a video & could find no way to get out of video & back to list of news stories. Had to close app & relaunch. Help! 9/21/22 Not fixed yet. Today I see a faint rendition of logo as if trying to open then poof! App Closes. Not even able to notify anyone 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ 9/20/2022 Whatever was done with the update today needs fixed. App won’t even begin till open. Several attempts - same thing. Also attempted to use “app support” here; takes me to ABC; I guessed “Contact Us” would be the place to go. Most topics selected go immediately to FAQ. As with most companies, it seems like you want to make it so difficult to contact anyone that it appears you hardly care at all.

    The latest update causes the app to crash as soon as it is opened.

    The pages are not easy to read on a std-sized smartphone, the font is too small, the eye cannot discern what might be of interest to read. Unless something changes, I won't be able to use this news source.
  • Awesome app!

  • Held Back by Ads & Playback Issues

    By mysagan
    I would rate the app five stars, but for two glaring problems. First, it makes you watch an ad before EVERY news story. I understand ads are the price of free here, but 1:1 ads to news stories is obnoxious. Painful. (30-second ad, 2-minute video, repeat.) Plus it’s the same couple of ads over and over. The other big problem is that, if you’re watching a story when they publish a new story, it kicks you out of the one you’re watching. Screen goes black, a new ad plays, and their new story starts. Really bad experience. Happens to me a couple of times per week. Not sure why these things are acceptable to the folks who work on this app, but they’d have all the stars if they’d fix it. (This review is for the app on Apple TV.)

    The app with send you notifications about stories you want to read and when you click on them they’re nowhere to be found… one of the most annoying apps I use, at least it’s not Fox News I guess 🤷‍♂️
  • Awful App

    By DavBec
    You cannot watch the news shows such as World News Tonight. This is the absolute worst news app of all of them. CBS News and NBC News and CNN as well as many others are far better. ABC does not seem to care about correcting this issue so don’t waste your time with this app.
  • Not working

    By lnlgeoe
    Whenever I get a notification of a news headline and I click on it. Instead of opening the story that was sent to me via notification. It opens a random story on the app. So frustrating.
  • Bias

    By 66Jimmy
    I’ve had the app for quite some time. Very difficult to comment on anything - think I had to go to the website - complaining about Jon Karl’s ambush of Trump and ABC supporting him and his book - they never answer anything - I’m not a Trump fan and think most politicians at that level are crooks - moving away from ABC and sad that there aren’t many real journalists left, just news readers…
