Ratings and Reviews
What is happening with this app
I gave it a shot considering how fantastic vice journalism is but seriously, it’s 2023, and your the only news agency I know that doesn’t have a decent functioning app. Seriously considering giving up on vice altogether because the website looks so messy on my tablet (ergo why I took the chance on the app). You can’t create an account, the tabs don’t work, nothing functions. And from these reviews it seems they haven’t tried to fix anything in at least 4 years. If you’re going to just give up, take it down. The only reason I gave it two stars was because the second time I used it I was able to read 3 articles before it crashed and everything stopped working again. And I love(d) vice and the journalists working really hard to put this stuff out deserve credit. What a waste of these journalist’s hard work. What a way to let them and your readers down. Seriously, are you TRYING to self sabotage?
Loading Ads Move The Content I Am Reading
The ‘for you’ tab is constantly loading ads in the background. That’s not a problem. You have a right to make money. The problem is when it loads a new ad that I have already scrolled past and that ad is a different size, it moves the article I am reading out of view. The page refreshes and I’m lost. This isn’t isolated, it’s constant. To the point where I lose articles all the time I am trying to read. I generally give up and go somewhere else. Shame because I love vice news.
Developer Response ,
Hi SpecialFlav - we're aware of this annoyance and are working on ways to address this. Hopefully will have an update soon.
Great app, needs better editors
Love vice news and their investigative journalism, the app is easy to use, and has lots of interesting articles.
However, they don’t seem to have proofreaders or editors checking the articles before uploading them. There are articles where the same paragraphs are repeated over and over, word misspellings (Vile instead of vial) that wouldn’t be picked up by Word but an editor could easily proof, and symbols in weird places. Even the biggest news organizations make mistakes, but when half an article is just duplicate paragraphs, kind of makes you not want to read or share it.
