ABC News Review - US & World News in your Mobile

There are a few top news apps widespread in the US. In this niche, ABC News is to compete with USA Today, CNN, BBC News, Pulse News, AP Mobile, Flipboard, and Zite. In what aspects ABC News is special, what functionality it offers, is it free for Android and iOS and what user experience it builds – in this article, we are going to answer these and many other questions.

What ABC News App Is

This app provides convenient mobile access to the latest news and clips from well-known TV-shows, e.g. Good Morning America World News, Nightline, This Week and a lot more. You can receive push-notifications about breaking news in the USA and abroad. Learn more about entertainment, sports, economics, hi-tech, business, health and science in one handy app. We rate it with 9/10 for convenience, regular updates and content selection.

Interface

The interface can’t be called crystal clear and easy-to-understand right away yet esthetical and attractive. ABC News app for Android and iOS devices shows the latest news and trends at the top, as a scrollable slide show. Below you can swipe through most popular headlines, get familiar with summaries and images. If you get this app for iPad, you can enjoy having a weather block and block with videos at the main page as well. I read user opinions about the latest app update that changed once-neat and clear iOS and Android interface with a bunch of ads. In general, if you can imagine this free app without ads, it would be well-structured and user-friendly: in a few taps, you get deep into the story and perfectly understand what’s going on. My mark is 9/10.

Performance and usability

The app performance is stable, I noticed no bugs and crashes during a 5-day test on Android smartphone. The app functionality consists of:

  • Live streams for breaking news
  • Multitasking support: you can stream videos and browse text articles at the same time
  • Cache for offline reading
  • ABC News Radio to listen anywhere: works in the background, even if you actively use other apps
  • Customized push-notifications and alerts
  • ‘News Inbox’ function – do not miss the top stories you are interested in.

However, the app sends a lot of notifications you might not be interested in, and in general, your smartphone looks a bit text-heavy when you use ABC news app. The mark is 9/10.

Cross-platform use

The app works on Android devices with system version 5.0 and later. Is also can be installed on iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch with iOS 9.3 and up. No idea, why users of previous iOS versions are left off the board. 7/10 for platform support.

The Verdict

This app is recommended for people who want to be well-informed about the latest news and situation in the country and in the world. However, similar news apps will do this task as well, but support more operation system versions and show fewer ads. Give it a try and compare with similar apps to see which one works better for you.
