The app offers comprehensive coverage of national and international news, with frequent updates so that you can catch up on all the latest headlines as they break.
Content-wise, you can view ABC News stories and also stream live ABC News 24 for real-time access. There are over 25 radio stations that you can stream live to your device, including ABC Local Radio’s metro stations as well as on- demand ABC TV episodes and radio podcasts to browse.
Stories are categorised by industries, including entertainment, science, technology, rural and games, but if you want a quick rundown of general news, the app includes a video feature that plays 90-second clips of the most recent news bulletins. Note: You will need a 3G or Wi-Fi connection in order to access and view the videos.
Besides news consumption, there are a handful of additional features to check out. One is a customisable weather option, where you can create shortcuts to weather forecasts in your area and other relevant locations – among others.
