Yes

This is (IMO) the best news app. Possibilities are endless and I’ve been using it for years now. I get a nice variety of news and the organization is great. My gripe since day 1 is the “cancel” button when commenting being too close to the keyboard. You’ll type something out and then you might accidentally tap cancel and erase your whole thing. I know no other app in the universe that would put the cancel button so close on a touch screen app. That needs to move, I’ve said it before, and you clearly have no intention to move it, but it’s bad. Also a couple days ago the widget you can place on a page of your phone stopped working, went black, when trying to fix it, it completely disappeared from the option to add. But the setting is still available inside the actual app, so I hope that gets fixed or something. I can’t find anything online relating to widgets vanishing the way this one did. Deleted and reinstalled app, did all the steps I can find online but I’m guessing it’s something else wrong. The widget for this app was the only good one out of all the news apps I have and it’s gone.

“Comments”

Flipboard is great. However...they may want address how many user comments are legitimate thoughts written by actual readers. Many comments connected to articles appear to be written by users with little or no flips, likes, or magazines...perhaps indicating no real investment into the app or no desire to actually read articles...they only want a venue to
help foster disagreements. Many of these comments look purposely incendiary. Considering that many of these articles go on to be posted on Facebook or Twitter, Flipboard may want to do its part to curb bots and “fake news” and encourage legitimate discussion rather than fostering division. Commenters who actually have flips or magazines are few and far between, indicating an overwhelming number of commenters are not real accounts. Flipboard, please solve this, you have a responsibility to NOT contribute to division.

Addition: The comments are now even more prevalent and, if you can believe this, more negative and divisive from both sides. These commenters haven’t even read the articles! It’s ridiculous! These are definitely bots or trolls meant to drive up anger. Flipboard replied to my last review that I could “report” these users. Are you kidding me!?!? I’d have to report ALL of them on every article. How is this responsible of you as a company?!?! What are you doing to curb this besides putting it on the onus of your legit users to “report” every single fake user?!?!

Beautiful program for reading information from on-line. It’s in my top 5 most used iPad apps!!!!

If you have not tried this app, you must try it out!

It's very graphical and pretty on my retina iPad and my 12.9” iPad Pro. Generally works very smoothly. Could cache the data a little better / faster, I've got fast internet at home, but sometimes it's slow updating and if I just spent a while reading the last entry, seems like it could read ahead a little bit, it could make the experiences so much better...

BUT be careful if you have a cellular connection! FlipBoard (being so graphical and beautiful) is a HUGE a data hog (assuming you're viewing something graphical and not text) so if you're on a low data plan be careful. I used over 10% of my 250MB data plan in less than 5 minutes (I tested this again at the end of this month, just a few minutes and 50MB of data was gone!). This is NOT a flaw, it's just the way super graphical apps are, but it goes SO fast I wanted to point it out.

Because of the retina display it "shrinks" some graphics too small (like animated GIFs in Tumblr pages) and it's too hard to read. Needs some user adjustment on that (what size to shrink to retina proportions) and to size text. It shrinks things WAY too far on the iPad Pro.

It’s got a great search option that searches a variety of sources all at once.

I don't think it's as useful on the iPhone for browsing, maybe if you went to a specific section, but I'm still not sold on that yet...
