Ads cover new and cannot close. Have you tested Pop Sci's new ad delivery system? Simply download the magazine app where you will hope to see things like news on science! Then you can read the first paragraph before an ad comes out and hopelessly covers the rest of the article! With no close or skip button you may try to close it and reopen it only to find THE SAME AD! Muhuhahahaha! Yeah, this version sucks.
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.
Love the articles, hate the crashing Consistently crashing on start up, reported the problem with no results. I love popular science, but im uninstalling. * Update Still crashes on startup months after reporting it! DO NOT INSTALL TOTAL WASTE OF DATA
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.
I'd only recommend to people I'd like to see suffer. I really enjoy reading popsci but this app just ruins it. It isn't the official popsci magazine, and they never have more than 10 articles at a time. To make it even worse, now they have ads that cover half the screen and don't have X buttons. The articles are even that good, it's as if someone copied and pasted all of it onto notepad. I would only recommend to people I'd like to see suffer.
This update includes server-side improvements.
