If you're holding your device in landscape when entering an article screen, the video will no longer automatically jump into full-screen mode. If you're holding your phone or tablet in portrait orientation when you're on an article, then you can still quickly launch video full-screen mode by rotating it to landscape. We also fixed some minor bugs.
Ratings and Reviews
Would be 5 stars except one thing
For the most part, I love this app. I’ve been using it for many years. The stories are always up to date, and the user interface is very well put together.
Here’s the problem: no matter how new my phone is (currently it’s the iPhone XS), this app freezes almost every time I open it for the first time after clearing clearing out my background apps; which I do almost hourly to free up system resources. It usually works after I close it, clear the app, and then reopen it, but gets a little tiresome. It typically freezes on the feed screen, but sometimes I’ll open a story and it will freeze as I begin to scroll down.
If this issue gets resolved, I will update my rating to 5 stars. Thanks guys!
Bugs, bugs, bugs.
Almost every time I open the app, I have something that won’t load or it freezes. I close the app, and when I go back into it it still stuck in the previous frozen screen. Usually it takes me 3-5 minutes to read a story that I’m interested in. This app has the most bugs out of all my apps on my phone.
Worse and worse every release
This app used to be clunky, have horrible ui, and be pretty much a dedicated vessel for serving you ads (with news tucked in between the ads).
This latest version is an even worse experience for the user. I don’t know how they managed to make this even worse than they did before.
My least favorite new feature is that clicking into stories causes the app to send you into your web browser to shady advertising sites. The app literally kicks you out to external advertising sites in addition to the in app ad content.
The articles are peppered with ads, the videos walked by them.
Fake paid news stories a spread out amongst the real content in an increasingly higher ratio.
The app stops/pauses whatever you are listening to at the time even tho they are read only sometimes. So You have to stop listening to anything else before opening this.
Often articles are mentioning photos or to watch a video and the content mentioned in the headline isn’t even in the article.
This app is becoming a bigger and bigger pile of hot garbage each release.
