Inability to leave sign in feature on.

1. Within the last month I have experienced issues which occurred the last time I was hacked. Same font and same window. Now each time I sign in it automatically signs me out if I leave it on it switch to another app on my iPhone or iPad. This makes me believe that someone else is using my accounts. And my other account will not open either. I have attempted to contact aol but they only give assistance to paid members. I have been a member since the beginning and as a retiree from aol/TW have never been forced to pay.
2. I have too much mail and would like to select mail and mass delete as I could if I had a computer. But I no longer have one. When I inquired about a change in the app I was told it can’t be done and to use a computer. Sorry I can’t give a better review at this time because I love aol. But I no longer feel safe or able to get assistance. Possibly you as the developer can do something and notify aol members.

Cuts off first letter of address and won’t send

I read that this problem has been commented on a year ago and it’s still a problem. I have the newest edition of this app. AOL was working well with no problem when used in my mail app on my Apple products, but now I’ve been advised you won’t support my doing this anymore. I’m very disappointed and will begin the process of changing over to another mail service at great inconvenience after many years using AOL.

I received a response from your team which seems to be your standard response to many of your dissatisfied customers. I did as directed and the first letter still gets cut off an email address resulting in it not being sent. As I read other criticisms, this isn’t a new issue. Why can’t you fix the problem? I’m surprised your advertisers are continuing to use your company. They must not be reading the reviews. Too bad you no longer allow us to use the Apple all-inclusive email program. AOL worked well in there. I’ve been notifying those on my address list to use my gmail address instead of this one.

Read the complaints and fix the problems! Deleting, rebooting and reinstalling doesn’t work. And to suggest going off WiFi and on to a data plan is asinine. The problem is not with your consumers, it’s with your faulty product. Hire someone who knows how to fix it.

Hi Irish, I wanted to follow-up with you and apologize for any miscommunication. Our engineers would like to learn more about your inability to send emails within the AOL app and if possible more details on your experience with the email address being cut off. We are unable to replicate this experience, can you please share with us what device you are on and its operating system? Can you let me know if by any chance the email you are trying to send is saved in your "Draft" folder and if the email address is being cut off there as well?

Lastly, we want you to know that you can continue using your AOL account in the Apple mail client, however, you need to follow these steps to ensure your account remains secure:

Needs Improvement

Several times a day this app stops sending functional push notifications and the following happens: Tri-tone starts going off, two of the tones play and the third gets clipped off and does not play and no notification shows up on the screen, the screen just turns on and then fades back to black. The only way I’m even sure it’s an email is because of what happens to the sound of the tri-tone alert when it plays. In case your not familiar with the name, tri-tone is the name of the default alert that Apple plays when you get a notification and you hear three quick tones. The only thing that makes it stop and go back to normal is a hard reset of the phone which takes care of it until the next day when it starts happening again. It is beyond irritating. Not to mention if you scroll too fast while reading an email the buttons at the bottom of the page disappear and do not reappear. This app seems more like a beta version than something that should have been allowed to pass through to the App Store.

Please make a dark mode version! Also, please make it so we can edit the names of our folders in the app, and it would be really nice if we could change the app alert tone if we wanted anything we choose, not just “you’ve got mail”
