Native android features are ignored Update: 2 years later and none of these issues have been addressed. original review follows: Headlines and summaries that don't fit run off screen. Cannot resize font. Doesn't work in landscape orientation. Opens to Home screen that is more generalized content than the news centric web version. Nothing catastrophic, but could be so much better.
Just getting reload The last few days the app wont play the radio show video, just says reload. Tried reinstalling but wont work. Most everything else loads fine, but the radio show does not. Also. Everytime i get a call or have to multitask to another window, the video has to start all over and I have to move that tiny little scroll bar to exactly where I was.
I never have seen ads Love this app, but a few things would make it better : Radio controls, time elapsed/remaining for video replay, and More video ,because there is way more video content avaliable on the website and no way to access Commercial free podcasts, which is part of my subscription. Finally what's up with the new logo, seriously??
Have some pride and fix your app. I have been a GB subscriber since it came online. I know GB is an Apple lover but come on...you need better updates for people who use Android products. The Blaze app is unuseable in its current state...it just says constantly to reload...been doing this for 3 days now no matter what you try. Seriously??? jus sayin!
App is now useless One is supposed to have the ability to read news stories here, not anymore. Three seconds after opening a news link, a full page ad popup appears, and there are not options to make the ad(s) disappear. Very frustrating and disappointing. In the next few days if this is not fixed, I will uninstall the app. In the meantime I will have to be on the internet reading the Blaze (UPDATE: Forget the internet, same problematic issues. This needs to be addressed/fixed ASAP).
Getting worse The intrusive ads have been an issue for a while but it's gotten to the point that the app is useless. (Unless of course you need an app to show you ads) That's all it does now, no matter what I do. I haven't been able to read blaze news for about 4 straight days and I'm just about done trying.
