Complete and utter failure

For years now, the app has been complete bunk with articles formatting improperly on the screen but at least it sort of worked. Now in iOS 13 the app is completely broken. The only part of articles that even load is the ads. Big surprise. There is obviously no attention whatsoever paid to the app by the company at this point as it’s been over a year since the app has been updated. I’ve considered making a web link to the site and accessing the articles that way but with other companies out there that do generally the same thing and have enough respect for their readers to make at least a minimal effort to service those customers, it just doesn’t seem to be worth my time to give any more if it to the Cracked team. It was frustrating rude but eventually you need to get off.

Unusable... updated

Well I don’t think they did anything but maybe they did because the app is at least usable again. I can again read the articles (although they sometimes (but not always) have formatting glitches). It’s far from perfect but it’s usable and that’s all I need from it.

Loved the app when it worked or at least worked enough to read the articles but now the articles won’t even load on the app. Pictofact ‘articles’ still load but that’s it.

I even tried to reach out to cracked or at least whoever runs the app through the send feedback option only to receive an email the next day saying that “the group you tried to contact (support) may not exist, or you may not have permission to post messages to the group.”

Awesome... doing a great job with the app here. Although they clearly aren’t checking the reviews either...

Older post:

I'm lucky if I can make it through a whole article before the screen freezes and forces me to close the app, reopen it and go back into the article I was reading. I can't click on any video or link in the article without it freezing either. Sometimes it'll freeze 3-4 times before I finish the article.
What's the point of having the app on my phone if pulling it up in the browser is going to be more reliable? You need an update to fix this soon cause I like reading the articles but my patience has limits and I'm a frozen screen or two away from mine.

Downhill for a long time

Today I deleted the app that has been a part of my daily routine for over 5 years. Unfortunately, over the last year Cracked’s article have become a shell of their former glory. I have struggled to think of a single truly thought provoking or interesting article that I have read from Cracked in the last 6 months. Most of their articles are either a set of 20+ pictures that make either completely bland or blatantly biased observations.

The site as a whole is a far cry from the site I used to love for it’s hilarious and balanced articles on fascinating topics.

The actual app itself is serviceable and putting up with the occasional glitch seems much better than paying for the reader.
