Customer Reviews


The best Australian news app just got better.

One suggestion though: an "open in browser view" button for iOS 9's new Safari view would be great to ensure that rich media (interactive charts, etc.) are viewable without having to copy a link, task switch to Safari, remove the title from the link... Such a hassle when all I want to do is view ABC's great content!

Some ideas

Good quality app, stable and easy to navigate.
Some ideas for improvement: get user to chose how many articles they want to see, get user to create their own news combination from different categories, ability to zoom into pictures and a 'compact' view (2 line summary of the article to judge if it is interesting to read).

Great news, but app needs an update

The news is easily accessible and doesn't require much bandwidth. Some features that I think would improve the experience: ability to enlarge/zoom images, embedded social media(e.g. tweets) doesn't display in app, ability to read more articles instead of top 15, search for news by keyword
