Update: Fixed Years of curating wiped out in update

I’m leaving my original review below in an effort to provide transparency to anyone else experiencing this issue. I love Flipboard. Probably my most used app. Have used for years and years. I was really upset when the recent upgrade eliminated all of my feeds. Dropped my usage to almost zero. Posted a review here and this evening was alerted that the developers responded to my review and it let me know there was an update.

As of now all of my feeds are back and it’s the same old news feed that I know and love. What a relief. Thanks for being so responsive and fixing whatever went wrong. Updating my review to reflect how much I enjoy the app and especially the responsiveness of the developers.

Flipboard was probably the first app I downloaded on my very first iPad. I’ve spent years curating which feeds I wanted to follow and as of this week”s update, it is all gone. All of my magazines are wiped out. Worthless after the latest update.

Works OK on iPad, but complete garbage on Galaxy Tab

I get to read news articles on a free app and that’s great. Some stories will not open due to subscriptions being required, which is fair, as businesses need to make money - and that’s where the expectations with pop-up ads blocking content comes in…it’s a free app and I’m happy to deal with it on iPad because that’s how they make their money. On the Galaxy Tab though, it’s nearly impossible to read the content due to the constant pop-up ads blocking everything. Both devices offer “reader view” to just see the print without many of the photos and pop-ups. On the iPad app, the reader view option is sometimes almost immediately, and sometimes can take several seconds to become available - again, advertising/revenue/money…it’s a business that needs to make money. On the Galaxy Tab though, you click on the article, go make coffee in grandmas old percolator, take a shower, get dressed, then MAYBE, reader view may be available. But normally, it’ll be video ads on top of other video ads, that require the reader to press the invisible “x” about 8 times, to get past the ad, only to have another one replace the last one, 12 seconds (or less) later. I like the app on iPad, but don’t bother with it much on Galaxy Tab anymore.
