ABC News app review

Reviews

Introduction

ABC News by Disney is an iPhone and iPad news app that lets you enjoy the up-to-date content on ABC News’s website from your mobile device.

ABC News provides a simple touch-compatible and gesture-responsive interface through which users can access news content. This content, consisting of both written articles and playable video clips, can be organized according to the user’s particular interests and news requirements. In addition to the traditional desk-wide topics like sports, business, science and entertainment, the app offers fine granulation customizing to deliver only desired content.

More Information

ABC News was updated to 3.5.4 on November 14, 2012. It has a total of 46,270 customer ratings with an average of three out of five stars. Feedback comments have been generally mixed, with some users questioning the usefulness of not differentiating between video and written content.

I particularly like this application because it offers direct access to a huge list of different local ABC affiliate television news desks. By keeping track of Chicago, Flint, Fresno, Houston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Raleigh, San Francisco and Toledo, I can really feel like I'm on top of the coverage across the nation.

This application is also well designed with touch-sensitivity in mind. It is easy to use both the search and the browse features with a single hand, allowing one to catch up with the news while simultaneously enjoying a fresh cup of coffee. This type of mobile convenience makes it much preferable to accessing their content via traditional web interfaces. It's one of the free news apps for iPad and iPhone users. 

For: iPhone, iPod touch, iPad with iOS 4.3 or later
