What's New in Version 3.1.1
In this build, we've optimized content loading for Apple Watch users, making sure that the freshest Salon content is always available. We've also removed the automatic updates in the comments thread to provide a smoother reading experience. The "Saved Article" list will now show the most recently added content at the top of the list.
Buggy to use, often unsatisfying to peruse
The app through all its iterations has been buggy and not user friendly. Since I like to read ideas I'm drawn to the fantasy of what I'd like Salon to be, but in the end only about 10% is worth reading - usually book reviews or links to articles written elsewhere like Alternet. I consider myself progressive, but I'm also thoughtful and want to be challenged to think outside the box. Too often Salon seems like the Left's answer to Fox News: a lot of outrage and bluster, not a lot of self-criticism. If you want real thought provoking content you'll have to go to The Atlantic or Harper's.
It is a pleasure to return to Salon, in large thanks to this solid app. After being frustrated by number of other apps that were quite nonfunctional, in particular the newest version of Slate's app, I was in need of finding an app that would allow me access to high-quality journalism. I am happy to report that salon's app is easy to use and does not have bugs that prevent you from navigating it to read the journalism you want.
Salon is my "go to" news website for a progressive view of current events. Nice to have the same articles available on iOS. I have found the app bullet proof in daily use. It is responsive and basically the same as the website with an iOS flavor.
