Ratings and Reviews
Good but could improve
Well first I’d like to say I’m great full for what your company and employees do for the gaming community as a whole. With that said your app could do with fine tuning. After my initial choice of content it’s hard to go back change my choices. A better tutorial on your settings would be nice, and also a way to go back a see that tutorial again if I need it would be great. As far as the content of your product. I would say it’s excellent from my per view. Only negative I could give would be that most of your reviews seem to start from a personal view point and stay that way until the end of the article. It might just be my personal view but a review is supposed to be facts and info followed by a personal opinion at the end, maybe two or three different opinions. Well sorry for the long winded review. I hope someone reads this and I hope I see some of feedback from this as well. Sorry for poor sentence structure. Lol 😆
New update has made app nearly useless
I don’t typically write reviews, especially bad ones, but the IGN app has went from great to useless. Previously I used the IGN app almost daily to look up game guides or specific game news (and more), which I always searched for on the app using the “search” feature. The latest update stripped the app down to nothing but a “News” page, a “Video” page, and a “Profile” page (if you create an account).
The news and video pages can only be scrolled through and refined to basic categories like “games” and “TV.” The search feature has been completely removed. Not only is there no way to search for news or information on a specific topic, there’s also no way to search for a specific article I read a few days ago, other than endlessly scrolling.
Articles can still be added to favorites and viewed from the profile page, but I don’t want to favorite every article I read just for the small chance I might want to reference it later - I want to be able to search for it if I need to.
I genuinely hope IGN listens to their users and releases an update soon that brings back the search feature. Search options are such a basic and necessary feature for any news-type app, and IGN’s app is quite a downgrade without it.
New update is unusable
Update…. App has just got worse in the months since I posted the review. Now on the rare occasion I do see a relevant article that I’m interested in the app just crashes every time I try to open the article. Finally just deleted the app. So disappointed as IGN has been my only source for movie, tv, and video game news for almost a decade. This is absolute garbage and it seems the developers have no intentions of backtracking on whatever this disastrous new format is. Would downgrade to negative 5,000 stars if possible.
Original: I have been using the IGN app for several years as my go to place for all media news, but this new update to the interface has rendered the entire app basically unusable. Nothing seems to be in any particular order, I’ll see 3 articles from various times throughout the current day and then the next 7 articles are from 2-3 months ago, and review posts are so broken they don’t even display the number out of 10 for the review when the same review on the website is displayed completely and correctly. Would give zero stars if possible.
