Without cable or satellite

This works great, and I am able to catch up on all the news around the world. Thank you ABC

Poor Performer

Still does not load Surface 3 running Windows 10. Works great on Xbox One. This site has as very stylistic and pleasing look. Looks can be deceiving. I always experience performance issues with this site. Video caching cannot keep up with the player. Issues that I did not experience on other news sites. Video contact is lacking as well. Big disappointment!

Does not work.

This does not work on my computer. It just shows a solid blue screen with no error message. The link to technical support does not work either.

Falling Short of its ability to work

Use to be able to open ABC news in Win8 with no problems. Then in Win8.1 I started getting issues with opening up at times, or even refreshing content. Now with Win10, I suddenly cannot get anything. Just the blue screen. I sent a report, yet no reply. If this is norm, I don't want it. Either give us updates, or please remove this app from the store. It's not worth taking up space on my computer if it does not work. You would think that Disney (parent company of ABC) as huge as it is, could fix this small problem. Very disappointed.

Poor design, shallow depth of content

Although the app worked just fine for me on Win.10, my main criticism is the functional but old-school Win 8 era UI with its clunky sea of boxes aligned in horizontal categories that have no second-level of content, just the six or so stories on the top level for each section. Once a story is selected it contains a video or hero illustration accompanied by related text with a fixed, serif style font that is too small to read comfortably on a 15" laptop screen so I can't imagine that the non-responsive layout will make it any easier to read on a tablet. Image gallery labels often don't reflect the true scope of the promised content and once an image's enlargement is selected it's impossible to return to the thumbnails as there is no escape button, you end up having to resort to the "App commands" from the hamburger menu at the upper left to make the back button appear. You can do better, ABC news. This app looks like it was designed straight from the template in the developer's kit!

Poor Support before and Now with Win10

Overall, across all news apps, ABC News is poorly support the app. The best one is CBS News which is smooth and the notifications take you directly to the news item. This app is blank on Windows 10. Fix it.

update needed

Please update this app. Every time I shut my computer down, this app will not shut down. I have removed it and re installed it but it continue to have problems. I like ABC news but I cannot use it the way it is. Please do something to fix it. For now I have removed it until this app is fixed. PA

Windows incompatible

this is unfortunate. let's hope they can fix it quickly. As of 10/23, it still does not work. Uninstalled it and now the app won't even install. Wondering if ABC really want us to use their app in Windows 10 or not?

Will not work on some Windows 10 PCs

After upgrading from Win8.1 to Win10 this App will just show a blue colored screen. It will start OK showing ABC News splash screens but when it finishes loading the screen stays solid blue with nothing else. On my second PC (a laptop) it works just fine after the Win10 upgrade.
