This was my daily go to app on my first page of apps on my phone. Disappointed with the new update. Constant crashing (unusable) and format is not as streamlined as it was. Flipboard, please spare the same cut and paste responses that I have already seen in response from Flipboard customer relations to other users as to getting use to the new format. The ratings will hopefully have some effect in how the next updates are rolled out.
I changed my rating from 4 to 2. I dislike, actually hate the new release when on my phone. When I read any article in any of my topics, I hit the back button and get popped into the general pick list, not the topic list. If I want to read about apps, I have to select apps again after any article. I just can't use it thus way and may delete it. Also, and I suggested this when I installed the app I need a Dark or Night mode because if my eyesight. But also, who wants to open the app at night if u can't sleep and get blinded?
After the last update, most major issues are fixed and the new layout is nice. However, now it jumps back to the start page every time I open an article, instead to its place in the feed, meaning one has to start from the beginning to reach the next article. I hope you will fix this soon! Otherwise great.
Recent update made all video ads autostart with no way to stop them. Imagine taking a break at work and the noise starting up! Nice otherwise, but am disabling until that gets fixed. Note: no option to stop autoplay. Update: Fix for the problem went in on 2/23/2017; Sound no longer plays when just reading. Back to a 4-star rating.
Easy enough to move around and subscribe/unsubscribe as current events warrant. Suffers from problems associated with social media, specifically that it can be manipulated by those with a cause to promote specific world views rather than unbiased news. Some of what is promoted as science news is painfully silly.
I am dropping my rating down to two stars now because Flipboard seem to have introduced ads with audio. If I encounter one more ad with audio, I may uninstall this app for good. Do NOT shatter my silence while I'm reading!
We heard your feedback and have made an important change to the all-new Flipboard:
- We addressed the issue with auto-play videos and now they won't play sound unless you explicitly choose to view them.
