Much better with this latest update Wiki guides now work, app doesn't crash, articles now loading correctly, videos play properly. Looks like you've finally done it after years of trying. Stutters a little but I can deal with that. Don't change it or it'll break again!
Can it be!? Wikis work!!! Edit: wikis finally work! If they still do in a month I can remove most of the below :D / This app would be great if wikis loaded and it didn't crash whenever I signed in or tried to set preferences. Unfortunately because of this bug I have to wade through articles I have no interest in to find something I am. This is really putting me off using it now. If these bugs were fixed it would be great. Ads also becoming more and more intrusive.
Update It appears after a very long time, (months? Years? I don't know anymore) links to the their wiki's have been fixed, which is nice due to the fact probably 55% of their articles link to them.
Finally the issues a fixed. It does play videos. Better when on wifi, the problem now is that a lot of times after watching the 30 second commercial the app will force close. Have to go back and look for what i wanted to watch.
Finally this app feels whole. For the first time since this app has released on Android everything is working, including wikis! Now I can say this is a good app. Has everything you need to get the latest news and updates from IGN.
Finally Love ign as the reviewers in general have the same opinions as me on most games. Just updated my review from 2 star to 4 because wikis FINALLY WORK. Only been a few years but hey better late then never.( I honestly thought it would be never lol)
Another update with the notable feature of native in-app articles which will greatly lower loading times for much of our content.
Here’s the full list:
* Articles should now load significantly faster in-app
* We’ve resolved an issue with some wiki pages showing as all white or blank
* Some previously sparse video titles are now more descriptive
* You can, once again, unfollow games from your custom feeds
* Squashed a couple of pesky crash bugs
Thank you for using the IGN App!
