I've used clipboard for over a year. I want to like it. It does everything I want. Unfortunately, it has some tragic flaws that make it unusable. First, it crashes about every 10 minutes. I report the crash. Clipboard says they are working on it. a year later, it still crashes. Second, It is SLOW! After choosing an article to read, I can go to chrome, open the article directly, and read it before clipboard has it open. Third, after a crash, you need to start all over again.

Please open your device Settings, go to Application Manager, find "Briefing" and try force-quitting to see if that helps. If you need further assistance, please click the Contact button at flip.it/help, or inside the app. Thanks.

Update: Not only can I not uninstall this garbage, but now I've received an email indicating that they've had a data breach. Glad to receive the notice but I could have been better protected by BEING ALLOWED TO UNINSTALL IT; so irritating! Original Review: Bloatware I don't want and can't get rid of. it does allow me to turn it off, but it turns itself back on every few weeks. I'd give 0 stars if that were an option.

flipboard has become overloaded with ads and fake news from questionable sources I can't stand to use it any more. you're hammered with ads and links to unrelated stories to the point you can't discern one from the other. I've used flipboard for many years and it was an easy to use news aggregator but it's time for me to acknowledge it's more trouble than it's worth. I will be uninstalling soon after making this review.
