Thank you

After going through the list of steps you advised me to take, the app has been acting properly ever since doing so. I’m afraid to be saying anything because the fact that I have now, it may start all over again. I’m hoping it doesn’t. If it continues acting properly, I promise to come back to give a glowing review and 5 stars because it will be worth it if that is the case! Again, thank you for your help. It was very kind and appreciated.

Updated 2/3/21
After spending some time using the app after my last review, I have had a couple of occasions where it has performed improperly in the ways it had before. But now that I’m aware of the things I can do to stop that from happening, I am for the most part satisfied. Unfortunately though, because of the effort it still takes on my part to maintain proper functionality of the app, I cannot give it 5 stars yet. But I do hope one day it will reach a point where I can. Thank you for having an app that will deliver my mail to me right as it arrives! Also, thank you for having the courtesy to reply to my reviews with helpful suggestions. That’s something I rarely ever see, and appreciate it.

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.

Big improvement!

Thank God AOL finally put together a decent app! The prior ones froze and their compatibility with iPhones was not great. All the bad reviews were issues I saw with the old version. Yes, the older apps were horrible. I finally had to delete it from my phone.
This new 6.0 version has been out for a week and it’s totally a different app. It’s incredibly better, more user friendly, and more logical compared to gmail! Thank you AOL. I started with AOL in 1993 , I’m still a paid subscriber to guarantee that I don’t lose emails (which has actually happened), and I run my business with AOL. I can’t get myself to succumb to google’s Gmail.
One final thing — your news feed needs to feed us THE NEWS— not the skewed opinion by whoever you’re hiring to write the news. Then it no longer is news- it’s your writers’ opinions. Not interested in their opinion. They’re journalists. Show both sides with respect, dignity, and neutrality. Just state the verified facts and don’t leave out details that skew the picture. Trust me, you’ll be more respected. Tell your writers to take lessons from Walter Cronkite— he was a legend.
