Review from Edward Smith
Used to be good. A reasonably reliable source of info and news. But recently updated the 'news' that appears is more and more like clickbait, headlines repeated 3 and 4 times in the 1 story quoted and now "loose women co-presenters shocked they are left out of birthday special" that's c-list "celeb" gossip and nothing more. Certainly not worthy or even related to technology. Just seems like the standard of sources of journalism have significantly declined in quality.
September 11, 2017Hi Edward! If you're seeing content from sources you would rather not see, you can train the app to ensure it delivers content that you'll enjoy. If you read an article that you don't like - give it a "show less like this". You can also Mute the source as well. Use this option when you don't want to see any content from that source at all.
The intuitiveness of the app is lacking. I always have to think, "Do I swipe up or swipe left?" Sometimes a small "banner" of stories can be swiped; other times they can't. Very confusing to use.
DEVELOPERS/Flipboard: Increase username characters please. Why does an individual or company has to change the way they represent themselves online because of another company? ... Flipboard, get it together please. Increase users name characters please. Also, please add the ability to be able to move the App to the SDcard. Thanks.
I definitely preferred the older layout. I don't like having to use the button at the top to get to my articles as apposed to the old way. Would definitely prefer the app to open on the screen with all my articles instead of the cover story's. Apart from that and the advertisements it's a nice app.
App is okay, would be better if you could adjust what content you see/don't see in the settings. Would love a setting that allows me to block news from conservative news sites.
Most sections are very good. Too bad anything political is all liberal propaganda. For political honesty go someplace else. Only good for fluff news. Too many links don't work
Own following doesn't open first when starting app anymore. worse, now you can't even swipe anymore to get to it, no, you have to tap all the way up the display on a little icon. Another app who tries to fix what wasn't broken with every other update. smh
