I still hate this app!


Update #2: It is Jan 3, and a new update arrived yesterday to fix bugs. I can honestly say this app is worse than it was before the update. Bugs aren’t fixed. Scrolling is abysmal. This is one of the worst apps in the App Store. Save your sanity and find another news source. This one will frustrate you with constant scrolling freezes and bugs. This is a terrible app! I hate it!

Update: I wrote a review months ago and gave this app one star for poor performance. Today I would give it less than zero stars if I could. This app is broken. The stories don’t scroll. The screen freezes when you try to do something as simple as scroll down a story or list of stories. I hate this app and I used to love it. Whoever created this version of the app should be banned from making apps for the rest of their lives. The content would be good if I could read it. Unfortunately it is an abomination. Pathetic. Lousy. Putrid. I hate this app more than stepping in dog poo. I literally would choose stepping in dog poo over trying to use this app.

Previous review: This app is not useable now because Huffington Post is embedding auto play videos in each story. Even if your mute button is turned on, the video plays, sometimes to embarrassing consequences. If you're listening to headphones, the auto play overrides the audio. This is ridiculous. Poor. One star.

I’m close to deleting you

HuffPo OG

I’ve used your news app for as long as it’s been out. The content is great and I appreciate the points of view shown by your journalist and op-ed’s. However, the platform that you’ve started using in the last year has made you’re app unbearable. It locks and freezes and crashes constantly. It’s become garbage. I’ve fought the urge to delete it several times out of frustration, because I truly enjoy the content. I’m downloading the latest update now, as the summary says you’re addressing the bugs and crashes. Hopefully you are serious about fixing the issues that all of these reviewers and myself have complained about. We wouldn’t be pleading with you about fixing your app, if we just wanted to delete it anyway. I hope you get the message before it’s too late and you lose your readership and we lose the content that you provide. This is a technological issue not a journalistic issue. Such a shame you’re being brought down by an IT bandaid for an advertising infatuation.

Decent app other than the audio hijack that occurs


Audio hijack is when an app or webpage stops the background audio you are listening to. The consumer is the one who should have the final say on what audio is being played, not an app or random webpage with a stupid ad that doesn’t even have sound.

Test it. Open an audio feed whether it be music or news feed and listen to it, then open the HuffPost app and scroll down all the way. About 3/4 of the way down your audio will be hijacked and stop playing. Why? I have no idea. I didn’t ask for the audio to stop playing, it was hijacked.

Other than that I enjoy the app and it seems well put together.
