Ratings and Reviews
Love the content, but it's guaranteed to crash at least once while trying to read the columnists. There is no error message, broken link notice, or anything if a link is bad. The app just crashes.
And the video popup ads are beyond annoying. I read this first thing in the morning, and do not like being involuntarily subjected to a video ad with sound.
Otherwise, it's fairly easy to navigate, and does what it is supposed to do. So, three stars. Get rid of the crashing and pop ups, and I'll bump to 5.
Just a few things
I personally think this app performs well. I read that it crashed for a lot of people in the reviews but I haven’t had this experience. I would suggest adding a search bar so myself and others can search for our favourite columnists and/or revisit articles. I also would like to see that when I click on the columnist section that I get a list of the actual writers rather than simply a bunch of articles like a repeat of the home page. I’d like to read the writer bios and see their articles in one spot. Other than those two things, this app is good on updating daily and making sure its readers get the news they want.
Too much crashing
And now two days in a row none of the articles open. Just going to delete the app at this point.
Updated to say: now it crashes on the main screen if you just try to scroll? Are you ever going to attempt to fix this app??
I enjoy reading articles and commentaries on this app. What I don't enjoy is that certain commentators writings cause the app to crash. Consistently. There are several writers that no matter when you click on their article (new one, old one, doesn't matter), the whole app crashes. If an article gets removed from the website it sometimes still appears on the app and just gives an error message. Content-wise, a good app for those interested in politically conservative commentary. Technical-wise, needs work.
