Recent update made all video ads autostart with no way to stop them. Imagine taking a break at work and the noise starting up! Nice otherwise, but am disabling until that gets fixed. Note: no option to stop autoplay. Update: Fix for the problem went in on 2/23/2017; Sound no longer plays when just reading. Back to a 4-star rating.
I am dropping my rating down to two stars now because Flipboard seem to have introduced ads with audio. If I encounter one more ad with audio, I may uninstall this app for good. Do NOT shatter my silence while I'm reading!
Two things. First, the articles are very repetitive and I now rarely see stories which have any real relevance to the subjects I follow. But, easily the worst thing is that it has now started autoplaying ads. There was no warning this would happen. I will give it another week then delete if no improvement. Flipboard told me they were working on the issue of ads autoplaying. It stopped for a few days now back again and more frequent than before. Completely ruins the experience so I am now going to uninstall. Cannot recommend
Ok new gripe here. I liked using this app until today. I don't like the fact that the app engineers have triangulated what college I went to so they can push ads to me that are that specific. Use the magazine articles I save and shared as ad base. STAY OUT OF MY PERSONAL SPACE!!! UPDATE: I reached out and never heard back from anyone. Closing my account.
I hate that when I flip the questions about articles always comes up. Needs to be on top of page and not the bottom. Gets very ANNOYING. Until fixed 3 stars. I'm so annoyed I might even Uninstall.
Well start a support ticket for animated gif problem (again) Thank you, devs! I know your plate is full!
