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.

“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?!?!
