Customer Reviews

So much clutter to get through!

Wow. What a sucky app. While I like ABC news, I hate this app. When I opened it today from a new notification I was told I won an iPhone - well, not really, I was offered a "free" iPhone if I complete "offers". And I had to clear this away 3 times to get to the 3 lines of news on a topic I wanted to read, that was buried within pages and pages of other ads. Minimal content and pervasive and invasive advertising. Shame on you ABC. I thought those offer ads were relegated to junk mail...

Unacceptable Included Scam Ad

This app was useful until recently when the malware-like “Your iPhone has been selected…” ad appeared. As others have mentioned, clicking on the flashing envelope (with a red “1” superscript), or even clicking on the adjacent area that imitates a menu access icon, results in a screen that only permits a click on “OK”, supposedly to claim your “free iPhone”. This sort of ad is insulting and unacceptable. Shame on ABC. I will no longer use this app.

New annoying promo!

I used to like this app but recently I have been getting an annoying blinking envelope that won't go away and if you click it you're taken off the app to another site that says your iphone was selected for a free offer. There is no way to disable it or hide it. I'm considering replacing the app.
