This is still the best app for following all sorts of news and topics I enjoy. Update: Topics I didn't follow must have cached themselves which seemed like they couldn't be removed. Everything works as it should now! Hmm if only there was a blacked out version or switch in settings!
The new update is horrible...The fonts are difficult to read and the app just feels un-flipboard like. Update: gave it a shot again after all these time and I must say this has improved quite some bit. Let's see if they will make drastic changes again and break an already excellent app again...
Unlike Zite, which this company bought in order to use its great logythym, this app tried to dictate what type of need you get by pushing sources with a particular point of view. You get to choose topics, but not all the specific sore you may want. It's ideological more than a news service.
I am uninstalling this app. I have had it for about a 1 and half years and it just doesn't work well. I am surprised by all the positive reviews. Whenever the app puts up a notification about an article and I tap it, it doesn't take me to the article. It brings me to a list of other articles. The same thing happens when I use the screensaver feature. I will see an article displayed on my screen while my phone is plugged in. I tap on the screen for the article displayed and it brings me to the lock screen, and after unlocking the phone I see a list of unrelated stories. If I scroll down the list, I might find the article I tapped on originally, but not always. Add on to all of this, they display articles from extreme-left political websites like Vox, Jezebel and Buzzfeed. I want news, not unbridled political opinions. The best way to use this app is to see notifications for news stories, then go look them up on Google. But why would you want to have to take that additional step. Just get a news app that actually works in a way that makes sense.
Includes intrusive ads that hijack your mobile browser. Update: trending worse. Deleting. Not worth being infected, identity, privacy or banking info stolen or worse. Too bad. Was great... no longer safe.
Ive been having crashes whenever i get out of the app or when i go to a diffrent app. It just alerts me that "Flipboard has stopped working" and it gets annoying that it frequently happens. Otherwise the app works great.
-Bug fixes and performance improvements.
