Australian ABC news

I love the ABC News app. It's my favourite source of news. I've used it for quite some time. The stories are interesting, up to date and well written -- although sometimes I've noticed some spelling mistakes! :) I enjoy the science stories, the aboriginal and Torres Strait islander news, our local news, the rural news in addition to the nat'l and int'l news. Thanks ABC --- it's great!!!!

One of my most used apps

Couldn't live without this ABC app! It has been my preferred news source for the past 3 years. The app is easy to check quickly to keep up with latest news throughout the day, or to browse when I have more time. I appreciate the ABC's balanced and intelligent reporting, and the broad range of information presented.

Top App ... Recommended

This App is one of the best. I can rely on getting up to date information on what is happening in the world, without Government or Business or Media Baron "spin". I'm sick of these groups attempting to manipulate my thinking. I just want clean reporting of the facts, and I reckon I'm getting that from the ABC.

It's so good, the Government wants to gag the organisation .....
