Waiting. . Does what it says on the tin but SO SLOW! 9 seconds to open on a Galaxy Nexus isn't really acceptable for something so basic. Back to the drawing board me thinks!
Comments rarely laod Overall, not awful, but, the comments rarely load, with a message to check connection. How did I load the story without a connection? It's the commnetards reactions to stories that bring me back.
Worst app of the 80 on my phone Freezes or force closes constantly on my month old HTC m8. Can't believe such a good tech site made such a bollocks app. Totally naff. U guys suck at apps.. Just make a mobile version of the webpage and make a basic browser wrapper app for that.
Slow and drains battery More articles than you would expect don't load at all and when they do it's very slow. If left open in the background will use 80%+ of battery - not usable other than an odd occasion!
A poor choice Doesn't work very well (freezes a lot android lollipop) The content layout is different, the top stories are set to a specific amount and doesn't "add more". still not worth installing
No images? How can an IT site have such a crap app? How hard could it be to insert the associated images onto the page? Some stories, like LOHAN require them, maybe give us the option to load or not, for those with bandwidth restrictions? Back to my bookmark....
At last, the long awaited update to The Register's Android app. We’ve done some significant testing on this, but please keep telling us if you find any bugs and we’ll keep fixing them, that’s a promise.
- A completely redesigned and rebuilt app that, we believe, works well!
- Comments - reading and posting.
- Offline capabilities - just play with your syncing options in settings.
- Settings button ...works!
- You won't see 'App requires a restart'.
- No more errors reading comments.
