I hate when reading an article, spontaneous interruptions like a pop up ad, or an outright reject of the reading. It automatically jumps to a different article as if someone is controlling the app i use. This is the 8th time in a week ive seen this hapen. I think its time i REALLY stopp using this service.
It very good for its contents. The way news is presented is best. Categorisation is also class apart. I just love to flip whenever I am free. However what bothers me is some times you tube videos don't play
I've loved and hated this app at the same time for years now. And I'm now 100% convinced they will *never* get it right. This app has always crashed after flipping through around a dozen articles. It crashes on multiple devices with multiple OS's, on multiple PC's...everywhere it crashes. Crash crash crash. If you want to use the best news app you've ever had in your life AND have to restart the stupid thing around the 12 flips mark every single time then go ahead and get it.
i only like to use the widget but it is useless now. Shows me news from sources I've not subscribed to and leaves out a lot of stuff that i have subscribed to. Pages take a long time to load, sometimes don't load at all. All was better 3, 4 months ago
Advertising has become intrusive and annoying. Opening the GooglePlay store to show a sponsored app while I was trying to read an article is not ok! Multiple pages of sponsored ads while browsing a news category is annoying. Flipboard does a fantastic job aggregating hundreds of news sources but this hostile advertising ruins the experience.
It has gotten better. Had a lot problems with force closing on articles and freezing, this was on my tab s2 by Samsung. Now it's loading articles faster and responding well. It still force closes on some articles but not as often as before. I hope they keep improving it because this new update screwed it up again.
