Commenting on the app - update fixed

Thanks guys!

In short, it’s terrible. The default view has always been top two comments and then in descending order oldest to newest. Now the default is top rated comments to lowest rated so they are jumbled out of order. Please fix this and I won’t crap on the new app anymore.

Response: Is there any way you can add a descending view where the most recent comments are at the bottom? That’s what I prefer and that was the default before. Also kind of stinks you have to close out the comments then click another button to leave a comment. Appreciate you guys are trying to fix this, just a couple words of advice from a longtime stoolie.

Tim just saw your response, both of those things are in latest update. You can comment from the comments screen, and sort with most recent comments at the bottom. We even save the last used sort so its consistent as you view comments

Great content, terrible app

The content is fantastic, but betrayed by an app that is incredibly laggy in nearly ever interaction point. It’s slow to register touches, taps or drags and often even slower in displaying the content as the app loads. This leads to often tapping on something then waiting a few seconds for the app to register the tap, only for the app to finish loading content you weren’t aware it was still struggling with, then the app registering your tap on the content that should have been there when you tapped a few seconds ago, not what you actually tapped on. Then it opens something you didn’t mean to open, and the same lag makes it take forever for the app to take you back to the main screen so you can start over.

The app looks good but is horrible when it comes to the basic functions of being an app and letting people actually use it and view content. It was better when the dev nest was in charge.

Hey we just released a bunch of fixes for the lagginess, can you let us know if its any better?

Barstool has done it

My god, not a flaw to this app. This application has never frozen on me and I use it constantly! The content this application has brought to my life has changed my life. David Portnoy must have a huge big swinging candy cane in his stocking this Christmas from Santa for this great application. I used to love the bleacher report, until one day I found barstool and felt something drop. As a matter of fact, I just launched the bleacher report application and it froze, I’m not an IT specialist but I think it was a spider from the cobwebs that hang onto their servers. I used to have deep clinical depression (during my bleacher report days) but now with barstool I laugh and make more money and more love.
