Review from A Google User
Love phandroid, but.. this thing is killing my battery even after turning off background service in settings.
August 26, 2013Not sure why this would be happening... can you e-mail us a screenshot of your battery usage by app from within your phone's Settings? Most people report that this app hardly uses any battery so this report is surprising to see!
I don't like the ads. I have emailed them about a paid or sub version no answer.
Keep getting an 400 bad request error toast on first load. New within the last week.
Moto X Style.
Best Android news app around however it is not without issues. Sometimes the app force closes for no apparent reason. Also you should be able to edit your posts in the comments. 3 stars until that is fixed.
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 :)
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.
