Review from A Google User
Get the 'Drudge Report' app by VJANAND instead. Love the interface & the way headlines are separated into columns. It has only ONE ad bar.
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)
Shame on Drudge Simplicity of design might work for the website, but a mobile app demands a little more design work. This app doesn't even save the story you are reading if you have to minimize the app. It always takes you back to the Drudge Report page. I am going to try one of the other Drudge apps and see how they work. It won't be hard to beat this official one. I think Matt Drudge is great, but he should truly be ashamed of this half-assed attempt at an app. Surely he can do better, his readers deserve it.
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!
Literally Unausable You can browse for about 5 seconds before a pop-up blocks the whole screen and demands you download an Antivirus. It is disguised as a Google message but it's clearly fake. No way out of it other than to shut down and restart the app and hope you can get another 5 seconds in. Disgraceful.
Pop ups Between the hijacking pop ups and page refreshing every 2 minutes this app is total crap. You can't even read the headlines before the page refreshes or an ad hijacks your phone and doesn't allow you to go back to news page. Best news source, worst app now.
Been a fan for years but this app sucks!# Geez, I can't read the freaking stories for the constant interruptions from ads and that God Forsaken Virus Crap. I seriously spent 10 mins in the app just now and I kept a record, 8:53 spent fighting to clear ads and 1:07 actually getting a story open and Bam!!#! Ad interruption.. Sorry Drudge, you gotta go. My Blood Pressure can't take it and my kids are hearing dad say words they have never heard, and they are in college. Thanks for the memories.....
The pure Drudge Report experience.
