Uninstalled an earlier version of this app weeks ago due to continued stopping issues. Reloaded this morning, and in less than 10 mins. I had the app stop three times. ABC/Disney could do a LOT more to make this better. Full Review

Sadly, the app fragments the news with David Muir into sections thus a viewer can't simply watch the entire news shows. To do so, one needs to wait for the broadcast to be posted on Youtube. This is a perfect example of over thinking the user experience and not understanding the audience base. This APP diminishes the ABC brand and detracts from showing the fact that David Muir is a world class anchor and newsman. Full Review

Favorite news app. Present news in priority and groupings that I like but it's poorly written from a performance standpoint. Runs very slow. Reloads whole page when portions would suffice Full Review

Reporting is A+, the app itself however is another thing. I can only read 3-4 articles (on a good day) before it crashes. More stable on Apple, much worse on Android. I'd like an app that I could read all the articles I want without repeated crashes. Full Review

Decent Objectivity afa being as Propagandized as any other. If you watch a video, be prepared to manually STOP the Playback, because the app will eat your data and show you VERY OLD video. Full Review

You guys really need to be more judicious with your push notifications. I'm not sure who decides what gets pushed, but they need to give it a rest. Breaking news on new events only would be a start. Full Review

The app doesn't continuously play video. Constantly having to stop and start it. It's easier to just go to you tube! Please don't contact me to tell me it's my equipment problem. I don't have this issue with other apps Full Review

It just sits there with a busy icon and never lets me get to where I can read something. When you finally are able to read something even with the font on extra large it's really tiny. This is from an 8 inch Samsung tab. Full Review

App continually streams ad videos even though I have my settings set to not automatically stream. Disney is notoriously money grubbing presenting more commercials than any channel. At least, it gives that appearance. Full Review

I liked the old look better before the update. It read easier and you were able to weed out the promoted stories which was a big plus for this app over others. Minus 1 more star, now there are video commercials that play automatically with sound even though I'm not on WiFi and have Silent Video selected. This app is going downhill fast. The widget is useless, it does not update regularly and often displays news that are a month old. Full Review

Bashing the duly elected President of the United States has earned you an uninstall - ABC. What happened to respecting the leader of our nation and the position of Office of the President? Its past time to encourage unity so that our enemies are not emboldened. Liberals lost, conservatives​ won. That's how this check and balance thing tends to work... Stop being such obnoxious, dangerous sore losers Full Review

The ABC News app is horrible for viewing videos, it constantly buffers or the video doesn't play at all. I know it's not my network because I'm able to view videos through other applications with no issue. Full Review
