Cumbersome & unappealing The format is slow & unappealing, tried it on a few occasions and hated it. Sorry ABC, love the organisation, but this app is crap.

Wow! Absolutely loving this app. A new way to explore current events. It's slick and polished and works flawlessly on my galaxy tab 2.

App locked to landscape and mimics iPad aspect ratio It's great to see an ABC app like this on Android but locking it to landscape is a poor decision. Many people enjoy using their tablets in portrait as though it were a book or magazine. Please introduce portrait functionality. Further to this, the app seems to be a port of the iPad app meaning my 16:9 screen is not being fully utilised.
