Latest version AWFUL

Snake ad IS A DEAL BREAKER. come on ABC you're a major network not a strip club or used car lot - why use such a cheap tacky and annoying ad?
I used to turn to ABC news each morning and throughout the day. After the latest update I am deleting it! The main reason is that the ad banners make it hard to read the stories and navigate. With a rolling banner at the bottom with stupid flashing animation and a banner on the top that blocks the back button while you're reading, the screen is reduced to about one third the size and the distractions are annoying and make the screen cluttered. This app went from classy to junk. Try NPR news instead.

ABC News App is great!

The ABC News app is a great way to get information on all current events around the world. Just be sure to set up your app to receive notification alerts and you will always be informed of what's happening at home and abroad in REAL TIME! I love it and you will too!!

It works; we like it

I installed your app for a taste of home while we work in Chicago. Not only do you fulfill the wish to keep up with news from Alabama, but you are usually first with news from around the world. And your app works!
