I've been using the IGN app for years now, I'm not sure when, but it's been years. Throughout the time, I've seen the app grow, and become what it is today. The biggest flaw I have with it. Is trying to use the search feature. For me, I don't find it very useful. I out a search phrase in, and the results are very mixed in return. Equally as frustrating is not being able to click wiki guides in the save for later menu. Take all that, and I think 4* is reasonable for the app.
Was holding out on getting this app till the old issues got solved. Happy to report that they have been. Videos work beautifully, menus are intuitive. It's fast and hasn't crashed once. You can ignore the old reviews now. This app works great!
Poor layout design and restrictive settings. And for every video that you watch you have to sit through 30 secs of dumb text ad. I dun mind shorter ads but 30 secs for every video is a big yawwwwwwwn.. so i hv uninstalled it.
I don't understand why when I look at a slideshow I cannot read any of the text. It makes it impossible to use this app as half of your articles are slideshows. "Here are all of the important apes in Planet of apes trilogy". Except all I see are the pictures no words. Only happens on app not on website. I love IGN and I really want you to fix this because Kotaku is not as fan-friendly
Fix the videos. I watch the ad before your videos fine. Then when the video I wanted to watch comes on its just buffer time. Why does the ad play but not your video. Doesn't matter if it's on WiFi or 4g lte. I can put it on the lowest resolution and it still won't play. If I open IGN in the browser the videos play fine. Just please get on with it and fix the app. Signed Frustrated User.
I've had nothing but problems with this app. I'm able to use it for 5 to 10 minutes but then it freezes on me. Also everytime I try to save an article or page it never saves it in my saves list so instead of being able to go into my saved list everytime it freezes on me, I'm forced to close the app and navigate through the whole app again. That's if I'm able to navigate to the page I want if it doesn't freeze. This is the only app in my phone that does this. Every other app works just fine. I willing to change my rate to 5 stars if this is fixed.
Ideal for hiking, biking display, running or skiing, etc
