OK, my previous review got unnecessarily angry (sorry). Still, an actual scrollable/flippy home screen widget seems to be long overdue. Dark/night theme would be nice; as would be a "view on web by default" setting for sources that have for some reason scrambled their "as article" view. Btw, the self-updating, aggregated, rss-compliable personal magazines are just awesome; thank you for the brilliant way of organizing and reading online news. Keep up the good work!
The app crashes often. The daily email links won't open in the app. Certain news sources have a read limit without a subscription, but don't warn you until you open an article. There are many other little frustrations, but too many to list. Could be a great app. Instead it's an occasional time killer.
Updated for 2018. Still no fixes to problems and issues. Might be newer, but it has the same old bugs. No idea what they are supposedly fixing, because it's the same existing problems. Crashes while reading; while turning a page; or even while doing nothing at all. If you close and article and reopen it, it reloads the article. There doesn't appear to be any kind of caching going on. 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 - you'll keep getting them from more and more obscure sources.
Some of the websites that the stories are linked through give limits to how many you can view a month without paying (New York Times)... what is the point of showing an article you can't read? Other than that annoying little tidbit tho, no complaints.
Videos embedded from youtube won't play. I give up on this app. So many bugs and glitches over the years. I feel like an app beta tester from the s4 thru s8+. Hopefully someday this app won't be so buggy but by that point I doubt I will ever find out.
app has been constantly freezing or getting a black screen constantly for past 3-4 months, i lost count. when it freezes, you have to de-install. and reinstalli it. not sure what is flipboard doing. App is great when it's working.
-Bug fixes and performance improvements.
