Could be much better! App frequently will not even open. Occasionally won't load article content, when the app does actually manage to open. What an embarrassment for a magazine that reports the newest and greatest science and technology. You would think they could at least put together a working android app! Also would be a huge improvement if there were a way to access any links and/or videos that are mentioned in an article instead of having to pull up the actual PopSci website and find the same article to view this content.
Content won't load. Quite often I've been having issues loading anything on the app because there was an "Error loading content..." Also, pictures hardly ever show up. This has only been an issue with my Android devices. Can you please rectify this? I really enjoy reading articles from PopSci and would like to continue doing so but your app's retardation vis-à-vis Android has made it difficult to so. To be clear, every time I try to use the app I am connected to the internet either via wi-fi or my mobile network.
Good for text... And nothing else If you are interested in reading pop science articles, this app is great. It updates pretty frequently with interesting content. But nothing else works in this app. No videos, no photos, no photo galleries. The fact that these extras are even included in their articles is a little aggravating.
Was better when it worked I was very satisfied with this app but in recent updates no videos will play properly. Everything else works well and I will change my rating to 5 stars when it is fixed Edit: now it force closes when connecting to the popsci website through any link in the app. Photos won't load for over a week once they are posted. To top the cake, threads are even made that are either broken or have no substance to them. After all this I am uninstalling. This is severly disappointing popsci you are better than this.
Was good but Now just flooded with adverts... The ads now block the title of the article and the stupid bottom popup advert causes me to press it by mistake which then closes the popsci app and launches the browser with the advert. Disgusting. Is this about science or about filling your greedy pockets??
Great magazine, mediocre app Ten seconds into reading, a pop-up begged me for a review. So here it is: It is an outdated, clumsy interface that does a disservice to the publication it represents.
This update includes server-side improvements.
