Review: ABC News
The ABC News' well rounded approach to reporting is a good choice for today's news from Oz.

Features of ABC News:
The ABC App includes all the essentials you'd expect from a quality news App. It's quick to load, has the major news features hi-lighted in a rotating banner, and includes the top news sections in an easy-to-tap left hand column.
News includes the Top Stories, news Just In, as well as the Most Popular news stories of the day. National, Business, Sport World, Indigenous, Local, Science, Technology & Games as well as Rural news all have their own section.
The right hand side of this App allows you to horizontally scroll through the news features in each category. The number of stories varies, ranging from twelve to twenty stories per section. Tap on a story and the entire right hand side of the screen fills with than bit of news, which you can read and scroll vertically.
Extra features include Movie reviews, entertainment news, Triple J radio, and Music news.
With the ability to increase or decrease the font size (letter size) of the articles, and the inbuilt functionality to share the news via eMail, Tweet or Facebook, I think you'll be pleased with this Australian iPad News App... except for all the bad-news, of course!
10 out of 10!
