Review from A Google User
Don't want to use Disqus I would rate higher but I shouldn't have to sign up for a Disqus to comment. When I could comment with just my email on the old app.
August 5, 2014Please see if these issues are resolved with our latest version. Thanks!
Love the app, but some posts don't show post photos on top (Galaxy S7 & S2) For some posts, the area at the top that normally shows the main post photo or video thumbnail is now just showing a thinner white strip. The post photos still show for all posts in the overview stream. While it seems to affect about 50% of the posts at random, the posts that aren't showing the photos are exactly the same on my 2 phones. Thanks for fixing in advance - I promise to change back to 5 stars when it's back to normal :)
Great app.. just one thing. I love your app, it's just that every so often it just crashes.. it did it like crazy withy Galaxy Note 5 and now on my Nexus 6p. I know running "nougat" doesn't help.. I just felt it was time to say something. Generally it happened when opening certain articles. There's never really any rhyme or reason I'll t seems.
Some articles are not readable I have a nexus 9, and images overlay the text making some articles nearly impossible to read. The the app is stable, and I like getting news with it. So I'm giving it 3 starts and hope they can fix it. It's been like this for numerous versions, and over a year now.
Not as Nice as sister app Early Bird!! But a heck of a lot more informative!! Brilliant App, for all your Android and tech news! Neverstill make great apps, and the standard is deservedly high. Long may they keep it going!!
Force Close This app is bittersweet, I love the content and the app 90% of the time. But the app keeps force closing when I try to read the stories and when it does load up pictures and videos come out as codes.
So much better.... This app is world's ahead of the old one. It always annoyed me that the mobile app for phandroid was so bad. I prefer phandroid because of the writers I'm pretty happy the app is now just as good.
