Review from A Google User
Not user friendly Needs a UI redesign. Need to fix auto redirect to mobile site versions of articles that don't allow font size increase by user.
Clearly the drudge app is being attacked by a virus. The app continually is taken over by some fake anti-virus message. Definitely need an upgrade on how user-friendly the app is and its cyber security. Very badly designed app as well: constantly refreshing so you lose the article you're reading if you pause for more than a moment and it constantly freezes up. Otherwise I love the Drudge report itself!
Refreshes every 30 seconds!! It takes forever to load the site and when you finally manage to get it loaded it refreshes every 30 seconds. It didn't used to refresh this quickly in the past. This app is turning to crap. I'm running on a 15 megabits per second internet and it still takes forever to load and it takes forever to refresh interrupting every 30 seconds. Moving to an alternative reader that doesn't refresh as often. If I wanted to refresh it every 30 seconds, I can hit the refresh button. You need to disable auto refresh.
What's up with the ads??? All the sudden now I cannot read articles from this app because I cannot get to them before a pop up takes over and takes me to a page that says I've won! Matt I trust your news and add ounces but this is unacceptable. Change it and I'll rate 5 stars. Otherwise I'll just delete and go to the Web where I can block all these silly ads.
Ads and constantly refreshing Every minute Drudge refreshes...so annoying. Also you never know when ads will take over the screen on the mobile app, and the "home" button just loads a different ad. Sometimes when I first open the app...but often on a stupid refresh. Mostly annoying scareware crap. OMG I have a virus!!!!!!!!!!!!! Going back to using Chrome. (Still won't fix the super annoying Drudge refresh)
Ads are rediculous Every rime I open this the report loads and then is replaced with some bs ad for free crap or a virus scan. The report auto refreshes like every 5 seconds and makes me want to throw my phone. If I get a text the page homes and reloads even when reading an article. Wish I could give zero stars. Do away with the ads.
Unsure what happened but app is unusable now I've been using this app a long time now but recently I've noticed more and more difficulties using the app. Upon entering the app and getting to the main screen, I am immediately redirected to an ad that I can't close. After exiting the app and re-entering I am taken back to that ad. I can't read any of the articles anymore because of this. Hence, this app is currently unusable, please fix!
The pure Drudge Report experience.
