Review from Karl Fontaine
Offers categories but then doesn't separate them. NZ, Space and Gardening with US politics in NZ. gardening and child behaviour in space. Why bother?
December 8, 2017Sorry about that! Articles may be mistagged under the wrong topic feed. If you message us inside the app (Settings then Help & Feedback) or email firstname.lastname@example.org, we can review these articles. Thanks!
Love this app! One suggestion: Hide articles. I don't like to see images of some articles such as sad pet stories (ex. An article had a dog with a cigarette burn scar on his head as the front picture). But I have to report to get it off my screen or I can "show less like this" which makes it show less pets articles but I like pet articles just the happy or educational articles.
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!
Malware infected. A couple of times now i have been browsing articles on Flipboard and without doing anything it pops up a phishing advert telling me my phone (it knows the model) is infected with viruses and to please click on the link to install a fix. Classy!
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.
This is perhaps the most useful app of this kind। I request the developers to use an algorithm that employs user tastes and merit of the news to create a hierarchy of news articles in each section so that the most important and relevant things strike the eyes first and foremost in each section। Secondly, there should be an option to review top news of each past day in each section, say the most relevant 5 or ten articles। That way, people hard pressed for time will bike getting a gist of the important things even at a glance। Thanks a lot💕
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.
-Bug fixes and performance improvements.
