Salon = Intelligent & Entertaining I'm a long times fan of Salon. This App really does deserve all five stars, solely based upon the magazine's content, yet I could not compel myself to grant that final star. It's of my opinion, and only my opinion that this News & Entertainment App contain more news, breaking news, etc., and a "lil-bit" less of the blog or blog style articles; not to mention the Hollywood Star type of reporting...boo...yuck! I still, as a bleeding heart Progressive, LOVE this magazine and probably always will.
Links to articles don't work This is some of the best writing on the Internet. Too bad you can't get to the stories because of bad links.... too frustrating, slide out main menu panel doesn't work either.
Still not fixed 4 months later Salon has great content, well worth reading, but this app makes it very hard to find that content. People have been complaining for months; why has the problem with the links not been fixed? UPDATE Just loaded the app on a Galaxy Tab S and it works fine. The links problem would seem to be platform-related. UPDATE 2: even on the tab s, some of the pages (politics, for one) have an off-by-one error in the indexing of the links. On the phone the indexing is just atrocious.
Terrible design How hard is it to click on a link and have the article open. About half the articles, especially further down, don't open properly. It opens different articles. It's basic stuff people.
Journalism for the Reality TV crowds The best of the "online tabloids." Far better than Huffington, AOL, Yahoo, Newsmax ewww, but still very sensationalist and gossipy. The app itself went to hell. The articles link to random content now. PRO TIP: Get over your hard on for bashing anything not leftist insane and learn how to make an app.
Terrible execution I downloaded this app because I was tired of the desktop site constantly updating and forcing the browser to go back to the top of the page. Unfortunately the geniuses behind that idiocy probably had a hand in this app. Make the entire title of the article fit on the screen. I literally had to click on every article to see what it was about because the text cuts itself off. Will probably uninstall and just stick to buzzfeed as they know what they are doing.
We've made several important changes in this version, including restoring the ability to view comments. You may notice a few design changes for a fresher look, especially the new "Most Read" strip that highlights some of our most popular stories.
