What's New in Version 3.8.1
* Bug Fixes
Never Miss The News Ever Again !
I love this app. I used to watch the news on TV when my wife and I went to bed at night, and she would always fall asleep before I did whilst asking me to turn the volume down. Yep you guessed it, that doesn't happen anymore because I read the ABC news app instead nearly every night ! The alerts are great too, you are only notified of major news events, your phone isn't constantly bombed so went it goes off, your always quick to check the alert cause you know it must be big news ! Love your work ABC.
Love getting my news from the ABC on the phone. Be nice to have a keyword search function. I like how it gives quick access to the latest stories.
Inconvenient glitch that when I share a story by email and type in landscape mode, then the app stays in landscape mode and won't switch back to portrait.
Would also like it if could re-order the pages and/or set the default page that I open to, eg Just In or Local.
Otherwise, the ABC is my reliable source of info and this app is great for that.
Small mercies in a BIG Country
I have to be quick reviewing this App. as our internet fickle! Living remote, I find the App easy to navigate, fairly responsive & tells me what I need to know at a glance. I use the 'Listen Live' bit often (well, when we can get contact out here) & also check the daily News Headlines - still less sensationalist & broader than commercial channels.
Thanks ABC - always connecting rural & remote Australia in innovative & informative ways - 10c a day would be money well spent. Phew, I've almost made the review - now let's see if it posts! 😋🙃
