Great app. Keeps you informed when you are on the go.
It's great being informed 5/5
Excellent app! They notify me of the latest news before any other news app. Super easy to use and accesible. Definitely recommend, I absolutely love it.
Great App 5/5
Great app thank you
Downloaded this in case lost tv, so could get updates and alerts with Irma bearing down on us.
First, had to register, not that it's a huge deal, but why? So you can send adds to my inbox? Moving on...started up the app and first thing I get...a lousy advertisement. Really?!?
I removed the app immediately I can't stand people forcing advertising on me, especially with an app that's supposed to update you with emergency notifications.
Always Providing The Best News 5/5
I've been tracking Hurricane Irma and this has been the best app for local news. I even told my out of town family to use this app for updates and not the national news.

ABC Action News 5/5
ABC Action News 5/5
By Frankie 56
I love this app. It keeps me informed when I can't be home watching ABC Action News. ABC Action News is the only News program I watch. I watch it every morning and evening and night. Keep up the great work and all your great personalities that you have on the program. There isn't one that I don't like.
Rampant ads ruined a great news source 1/5
This used to be my go-to app for local news. Now pop-up ads and 'answer a survey questions' just make trying to read the news infuriating. Deleted the app. Now they get zero advertising revenue from me
My go-to app for news 5/5
I like the way this app is organized, and it is thorough.
ABC App 5/5
By Greyfox 44
I check it numerous times each day for current news. We do not have Bay News 9, so this is the next best thing.
I like the app. Easy to use.
Good App. 5/5
By Righteous Peace
I like the App. Gives great information.
Long, unskippable ads 2/5
App is fine but when you go to look at a video it forces you to watch the full ad (20+ seconds). No way to skip after I've determined I'm not interested in feminine hygiene products. App deleted!
Great tv news 5/5
Great news source.
Great app 5/5
Great App 5/5
I love the constant updates
Chops off headlines 1/5
Recent update only shows part of article headline- have to click story to see if it is something I want to read. Go back to full headlines.

Awesome APP 5/5
This ABC App is easy to use. I get all the information I need. It's worth having the APP.
I always depend on the news, being breaking or updates. No fluff. Perfect.

ABC local app- best source for news 4/5
I rely on it every day, and the notifications help me to be aware of my community.
Connected at my convenience 5/5
Great app for local and national news. Easy to use.
I wish the updates came in a bit quicker but overall works great no issues.
Very Good Local News 5/5
Great app for getting Tampa/st. Pete news.
Love staying up-to-date with what's going on 5/5
ABC News app helps me stay up-to-date with what's happening around while I run my busy business day.
Great News Source! 5/5
ABC Action News app has been my go-to news source since I moved to Florida in 2009. News is updated throughout the day as well as notifying me of breaking news. Their customer service support team responds to any problems you may be having with the app, and their technical staff promptly works on solving the problems. You will not be disappointed in this app!
News at your convenience 5/5
The App makes it easier to stay in touch with the world no matter where you are or what you are doing
Action News 5/5
ABC has been my go to "News Station" for the last 30 yrs! What really hooked me, while I was working on my days off I volunteered at the Station with ABC Action News on your side. Helping victims of wrong doing and was trained by other associates that were qualified .
While working you could watch the news broadcast live and meet the news casters. They all work hard in preparing and verifying their stories before airing live on TV. It's actually a very interesting and enjoyable work place! : )
Adware in this app 1/5
I was reading a news and a pop advertise appear. I closed and delete this app
Not my favorite anymore 1/5
Update 9/21/3016: decided to give it another try. It's even worse now that ads pop into news stories that you can't get rid of. So you can't read the story. I expect better from ABC.
ABC Actions news was for years my favorite Tampa news app. The new update makes it my least favorite. Now I can only see one or two stories per screen shot. No more list of news stories I can look down and decide what I want to read. Now I have to scroll continuously to find what I want to read. I used to be able to double tap the news story to return to the home page. No more. Now I have to click the "x" in the right hand corner. No more scrolling to the right or left to get news from different areas such as local, national or other news topics.
I don't mind improvements, but the change is not an improvement. I think they hired high school tech students to practice designing this app.
Terrible news app 1/5
Obviously designed for people who hate to 'read' the news.
Cluttered and confusing 3/5
Feed is filled with national stories, entertainment news, and opinion pieces. It's hard to sort out the local news.
I already have apps with national news I was hoping abc action news app would have more focus on local stories but I was disappointed that I couldn't even find a local news section at all.
Terrible revised app 1/5
I can no longer sort and find what interests me. One of my favorite things about the former way the app worked is that when I clicked on a notification re a story, it opened the story. Now it just opens the app and I try - often in vain - to locate the article that brought me to the app in the first place. App needs a major overhaul.
Hate the Update 1/5
I hate this update. It doesn't navigate well like the previous version. Too much scrolling. And perhaps the most frustrating part... I personally like to READ the news and 90% of these "articles" are videos of the news story. If I wanted to watch the video clips I would just watch the actual news. Deleting this app which is a shame because until now it was my only local news app.
Don't bother 1/5
I agree with all the other updates. It is cumbersome and very centered on advertising now. Plus you must login through Facebook or email and subject yourself to further intrusions. It is now being deleted and I will go look for a new app from a competing station.
I love ABC Action News and this used to be my go to local news app, but this latest forced update wrecked the app for me. The new update is focused on ads, video and more ads. Gone is the nice horizontal swipe from article to article feature and you have to awkwardly close each new story on the top right side, to go to the next. I'd gladly pay for a no ad version...!
Who screwed up the app 1/5
My ABC Action News App quit working and wanted me to download the "new" and improved app. It doesn't work. Good job ABC.
The new update is deplorable.
