What's New in Version 5.22
We fixed the issue where ads would occasionally start with audio, annoying everyone (including us)
Keeps shutting down
Every time I get an alert for an article on abc news, and I tell the program to open it so I can read it, the article comes up on the screen and then shuts down or crashes immediately and the article goes away. It’s too much of a hassle trying to find it again to read it, so I end up not bring able to read the story. Been this way for a year or two. I’ve given up trying to access abc news articles.
Still crashes frequently
The news provided and the layout is great. However, even the latest update still crashes on my iPhone 7 almost every day. Touch an article to start reading and the app just closes instead. Open it again and it works fine for a day or two. Or not. It’s getting annoying. I would give this app 5 stars otherwise.
Love getting the latest updates!
It is wonderful to know what is happening in the world without having to read the newspaper or watch the news. News is right on my phone!
