ABC Finally Updating Its Android App

The ABC offers a lot of iOS apps, but its sole Android offering, the ABC News app, hasn't been updated since mid-2009. But that is about to change.

In a tweet today, ABC managing director Mark Scott said that an update to the Android app was "on the way". He also said that the iView app for iPhone, which was expected this summer, is in the "final stages of development".

Scott also shared some statistics, and ABC apps seem to be doing pretty well. The main iPhone app has been downloaded 1.2 million times, the Triple J Unearthed app has 815,000 downloads, the iPad ABC app has been downloaded 675,000 times, and the iPad iView app has 845,000 users. Even the PlaySchool Art Maker app has 130,000 downloads
