What's New in Version 3.1.3
We've fixed a bug causing some videos to not appear correctly on articles.
Magazine style reading like Zite
It was sad to see Zite leave as a choice for reading interactive content thank goodness there are still applications like this one that offer a choice of an customizable electronic reading solution similar to Zite. I like the way that this application presents itself, similar to Zite. I am not fond of the Flipboard's way of doing things. I find my experience using Salon better, more enjoyable. Yes it does crash. I have been in the middle of some interesting articles and have the application crash and have to restart. I have to find the article I was reading again. Also does not appear it is possible to forward an article to something like pocket. So there are areas for improvement. The developers are constantly updating the application bravo!
The articles on this app are often quite good, but it is impossible to count on being able to open an article. Often, one must come back a few hours later to try again.
They are lazy with picture assignments to the articles, frequently using the same picture on the same page for two or more articles. Sometimes, the picture has little to do with the content.
Two weeks later: this app is even worse than ever.
Now, it is impossible to get links to data such as reproduced tweets which they are using to illustrate the points in the article.
Scrap this app and start over folks.
Great content, buggy app
Love the articles and the site. I read it on the subway. Unfortunately the app crashes a lot as my phone finds and loses a signal. Turning the phone to airplane mode helps. When saving articles for offline reading, it is a bit of a crap shoot if they will be available. Some embedded content does not relay to offline, ok for videos, annoying for embedded Tweets that authors reference but you can only guess what was tweeted. Overall I do enjoy having one of my favorite sites to read on my commute.
