This was my daily go to app on my first page of apps on my phone. Disappointed with the new update. Constant crashing (unusable) and format is not as streamlined as it was. Flipboard, please spare the same cut and paste responses that I have already seen in response from Flipboard customer relations to other users as to getting use to the new format. The ratings will hopefully have some effect in how the next updates are rolled out.
After the last update, most major issues are fixed and the new layout is nice. However, now it jumps back to the start page every time I open an article, instead to its place in the feed, meaning one has to start from the beginning to reach the next article. I hope you will fix this soon! Otherwise great.
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!
Too much liberal bullshit. Okay I have to say that shortly after I gave my 1 star rating. Flipboard replied and I appreciate their response. I guess they want to post article's from all source's even left wing nuts. I guess it's not their fault. That there's so much liberal bullshit. So I decided to give them 2 star's. I like the rest of the app just going to filter out the "Fake news"
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
We heard your feedback and have made an important change to the all-new Flipboard:
- We addressed the issue with auto-play videos and now they won't play sound unless you explicitly choose to view them.
