A step back (maybe more)
ABC had one of the top news apps but, with the new update, it's now one of the bottom. The previous app (which stopped working several "updates" back) had an ingenious layout with a list of relevant news stories (some had pictures, some had video, some had neither but were equally relevant). In the "new app," stories without pictures or video get lost (even if they are extremely relevant) ...this has transformed a great news app into an entertainment app.
By the way, the "NBC news" app, which was updated at the same time, actually improved by making their layout a bit more like the previous "ABC news" app (ironic).
If you are looking for a decent replacement, I found the "Bloomberg news" app as well as the "CBS News" app to have a reasonably good layout for news.
Quick Note: recent updates don't work properly and do little to address the poor design overhaul of the app. It seems as if "abc news" just wants to reset the review count with all the "updates" (that is, get rid off the mostly poor reviews they've been getting asking them to revert to the old app).
Apple TV app is amazing
Whenever there's a notable live event I launch this app on my apple TV since it gives me many different live views and not just the single network feed.
For example during the Presidential debates it offered a view of the Republican candidate, the Democrat, the combined view, a crowd shot of a bar in DC where the patrons water watching the debate, a view of the front of the venue. And several others. Never before have i felt so empowered to be my own news director.
Loving the app and redesign!
I'm loving the new ABC News app. It's the best for watching live streams and live coverage across the board. The UX is pretty great, and the redesign really brought this news app to the #1 spot in my top 3 fave news apps
