What's New in Version 5.0.4
The ABC app team has been busy improving the ABC app experience. Here's what's in this release:
- We've brought back the Widget
- Increased how often the app updates content
- Cosmetic fixes
- Performance improvements
We are listening to your feedback. More updates are on the way.
Update: Yay, I got my widget back!!! Finally got some non-clickbait headlines in my sidebar again 😊
This is a brilliant app giving easy access to the latest news from the best news source ever, the ABC! :) I love the breaking news alerts which give a brief overview of what's going on in the world as it happens. I will admit there are occasionally some bugs, and it struggles to display content such as tweets or graphs, but overall it's a great app experience filled with wonderful ABC news coverage, and the team are very responsive to bug reports. 9/10
Great content, loathe the presentation.
The revised app is a huge leap backwards. I used to love being able to sort through the articles section by section. I hate how it now tries to tell me what items I should be reading. I feel like I am in George Orwell’s 1984 as the news is changed to whatever the app thinks I want to hear. I really liked being able to find all the science stories in the same place, and being able jump from one theme to another in my own way. This new app makes feel I am being MANIPULATED!
Clunky and inefficient navigation in comparison to previous version which flowed much better with the quick access side menu and swipe function. I find the home tab to be redundant as it requires you to scroll all the way down to the desired topic, where as the browse tab allows you to see all the topics at once.
I also previously enjoyed having podcasts/radio integrated into one app which is no longer the case.
