Ratings and Reviews
Auto-Play Audio is awful
Business Insider is my favorite place to go for quality content on what’s important to me. However, as of recently, they’ve implemented auto-play mid-roll content that goes around your phones settings and blares audio at top volume. To turn it off, you have to scroll all the way to the bottom of your page and pause the content. I can’t have this when I take the train in the am and hope they can change this soon. Don’t sell out to marketers demand for higher engagement. The user experience is important!
Good Content with Horrible Technology
Business Insider has well thought out content (forgiving their obvious over the top liberal leanings) for business.
Unfortunately and amazingly even their paid product’s interface on iPad Professional’s or website is just plain bad! Do you guys try logging into your own site without an iPad App (ie your target market clearly has these) you can at least make your safari site version 1) enable you to log into the site (log-in screen doesn’t work), 2) when logged in via iPhones and the automatically opening the app having to sign in again 10 seconds later is just stupid. Get with the program and focus more on your business and less on chastising conservative outlook that was legally elected to the White House!
Best Terrible App
The site is great, the content is valuable, but the app is awful and BI apparently will not fix it. As others have noted, the app constantly freezes, crashes, etc. But what is not mentioned is that BI's attempted fix is to let the app eat up all available memory on an iPhone. The app will just keep expanding in size to keep itself running until your phone's memory is full. Mine went to 28gb today! Then the only fix is to delete the app from your phone and start over. You'd think with all the success that BI has had, and their understanding of the importance of mobile, that they'd get this app fixed. But after years of waiting, there is still no sign...
