Review from Google User
I have checked Flipboard daily for a while now and I enjoy the concept. However, lately every article I open is plagued with tons of ads; full screen pop up ads, animated ads every three sentences, etc. The articles are becoming more and more click-bait-like; a fair amount of them with 5 pages of ads and no actual information until you've paid someone a fortune in ad profit by navigating through the pages. Perhaps some peer review/thumbs up thumbs down/approval system would help filter out the celebrity nonsense and clickbait junk? I'll try refining my front page. PS: I'd have no problem subscribing to Flipboard if the content was not 75% insulting American celebrity clickbait.
September 12, 2017Thanks for the review! To report articles with intrusive advertising just tap on the three vertical dots icon, select "Show less like this", Report, then the Intrusive Advertising option. This will remove the article from the feed and flag it for our team to review. Thanks!
I used to love this app. I had it fine tuned to show me only science and technology articles. Now I'm seeing articles for subjects that I have absolutely no interest in such as sports and celebrities. No matter how consistently I click "show less" on these subjects I still see a half dozen articles about them when I log on. On top of all that I'm hardly seeing any science and technology articles anymore. Please fix it. I would really love to keep using this app.
This is an app I have used for many years, but unfortunately I can not use anymore. No matter what news feeds i choose, most are not creditable. Despite many grammatical errors and spelling issues ( on an hourly basis), sometimes I find the information completely false and only worth a title of "click bate". Very sad to see another media company sell out and only print what the highest bidder tells them to. One word comes to mind and that is WEAK. This owner is a coward. Fact not fiction.
Reports what appears to me to be reliable news, and that's saying a LOT in the present day. I also relish, even love, the special interest sections. ..recommend you take the time to sign up for yours and, for some, sign up for 1 or 2 that might help stretch your world like tech, science, and/or medical.
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. In tablet mode hope you like all the articles, because there's no way to say you don't like them - they removed the option. 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 - well you;ll keep getting them from more and more obscure sources. And don;t worry all the old ones just won't be tagged and categorised so you'll still see them and have no options to dislike them
Gave it 5 stars two years ago, now knocking off two. Latest update loads and refreshes much slower. New layout of top pages is cluttered and ugly, the titles of the two bottom boxes too truncated to be useful. Overall, a regression to a junky look.
Why I'm here: Again..Poor support; why would i waste my time contacting you. You guys have never ever ever resolved a single issue i reported.
-Bug fixes and performance improvements.
