Same story endlessly, hardly news

Hopelessly loyal to ABC news. I watch it on TV and I read it on my iPad. There must be millions of news stories every day worth reporting and this app refreshes it's content at least 3 times a day. But the same story appears all day and in many many instances all week. ABC seems to think its network shows are news, hence never ending stories about the bachelor/ette as well as others. These stories remain for days, hardly news. Viral videos that are cute are hardly news either and also remain for days. How can ABC retain its audience if the daily news is just the same story over and over. Then the advertisements are killing me. Obviously this is a money maker for ABC but a death bomb for viewers. I keep waiting for something more respectable to come along as an update to the app, but never ending stories about tv shows and relentless ads seem to be what ABC thinks we want. World news tonight this is not.

Come ON, ABC!

Do you read the reviews on your app? They are overwhelmingly negative! Surely there is a design team out there who can do a better job for you! You are doing your news service a DISservice! Poor David Muir, Martha Raddatz, George Stephanopoulos and all the other superior people on your team that they have to be associated with this low-quality app.

I'm switching to another news app for a while. I'll check back on you in a few months. But if you still have that old, tired story about Lindsay Lohan and her boyfriend (guys --- they split many months ago!!!) that's been posted for OVER A YEAR, I'm done.

I hate to give you even one star... but let that one star be a wary vote of confidence. It can't be THAT hard to pull it together and give your audience the quality they deserve.

Crash haven

The app freezes way too many times during one show. I exited the show in hopes that when I returned the issue would be corrected only to either have to watch all six commercials,, again or stay at a screen😡.
Then the commercials are repetitive. If there have to be commercials at least let there be a variety.
I do appreciate the availability of programs nut between the app freezing and repetitive commercials I might as well watch the programs on tv. At least there the program does not freeze and there are a variety of commercials.
And is it me or am I the only person who when writing a review if the nickname is taken you have to rewrite the review?😡😡😡😡
