ABC NEWS DIGITAL has launched an updated ABC NEWS app for iPHONE and ANDROID. The new app includes ABC NEWS RADIO hourly updates, live streaming video, personalized push alerts, and exclusive content.
ABC NEWS DIGITAL SVP JOE RUFFOLO said, "We are proud to introduce our new ABC NEWS phone app for iPHONE and ANDROID along with several innovative features that continue to enhance the user experience. We understand that the way our users are interacting and engaging with our stories is as important as the content itself. Through personalized alerts, editorial curation, deeper video, live capabilities and individual inboxes, our users can better follow the stories they care about most."
VP/Product Development DOUG VANCE added, "Our users kept telling us that too many apps are sending too many alerts that are overly promotional and not relevant. They love alerts, but only when relevant to what they care about. So we decided to meet that evolving need -- now you'll never miss out on big, breaking news, but you'll also get a personalized news alert experience and a personalized News Inbox to keep you updated about the stories you've selected as important to you."
