This was the first app I downloaded when I received my first iPhone, then iPad and I find it invaluable as a reliable source of news. I use it to read about not only national and international news items but also my local news.
Great job ABC please keep up the balance reporting work you do even if under political pressure at different times to change your reporting ethics and high standards.
Thank you :-)


Excellent app I rely on daily when overseas. Only problem is Friday's RN Breakfast - it often appears not to have been downloaded and I never received it. A way of more precisely graduating one's progress through a programme, so that if you are interrupted you can return to the exact place, would be appreciated. The science show, late night live, books & arts - these are among RN's jewels.


It's free and it's Aunty so I use this app most days. I like the links to outside sources and to the ABC website. I get exasperated, however, at the poor sub-editing if that happens at all. Typos, poor grammar, spelling mistakes, clumsy expression and repetition all abound. Break-out quotes work well visually in columns of print on paper but on my tablet they are distracting and annoying. Even the Internet, it seems, cannot save journalism.
