The app isn't bad, but it used to be better. There was an option to filter topics and choose "show less like this" - that appears to have gone away (at least I can't find it), and it's driving me crazy. My feed is full of stuff I don't want to see, and I can no longer find any way to make it go away. Unless they bring that feature back soon, I'll stop using Flipboard.
9th September update. App crashed in less than 60 seconds after installing new 'bug fix' update. If you have a Galaxy Tab S2 then don't bother installing this app. On other devices its really great. Breadth of news content & sources are impressive. I'm totally losing my patience with app crashing 10+ times a day. Sort out the issues for the Galaxy Tab 2
Use to be great. Since they updated it, it's confusing. It has 2 different parts that from what I can tell do the same thing. Seems like someone glued two news apps together without combining them. And now Flipboard stopped notifying me when people reply to comments, despite that feature being turned on. Very disappointing.
Excellent news selection. Easy navigation. Diverse topics and sources. Might be nice to have a convient way to access some info on the more obscure and seemingly slanted news sources, but then again the whole fake news/real news thing really has been around since two cavemen first stood with a fencepost between them, hasn't it?
Newer & Buggier. Crashes while reading; while turning a page; or even while doing nothing at all. In tablet mode hope you like all the articles, because there's no way to say you don't like them - they removed the option. And forget landscape if you're on a phone. After all who needs to read in landscape made if you're not on a tablet. Best of all - if you start disliking types of articles - well you;ll keep getting them from more and more obscure sources. And don;t worry all the old ones just won't be tagged and categorised so you'll still see them and have no options to dislike them
This app has just gotten bad. Don't subscribe to any topic you actually care about. Like history? Be prepared to get articles about ancient aliens. Like archeology? Watch a thousand articles appear about the lost city of Atlantis. Seriously, does ANYONE working on this app filter through their tags? Because half of what I see, no matter how often I try to get rid of it is tabloid nonsense, not quality content.
-Bug fixes and performance improvements.
