What's New in Version 3.0
We're introducing exciting changes to the app with this version. Check out our brand new design, as well as new features like swiping between articles and sections and the addition of the landscape view for the iPhone. You can now scroll through our Most Read story ribbon on the iPad, as well as the iPhone, and we've added dynamic type api support, so you can easily pick a base font size to appear throughout the app. We've also made significant backend changes for improved memory usage, faster article loading, and an overall smoother experience.
Within the past few months I've used this app less and less. Salon doesn't have as high quality content as they did even 6 mo ago. Combined with the fact that the app has always and still does crash regularly, drain battery & glitch out, its something I generally avoid now.
The new layout is nice though, but is much harder to read since they use only sans-serif type in article bodies now. Classic mistake when trying to look more 'modern', it severely limits readability.
Adware loaded app, repeatedly opens App Store to crappy games
The Salon website is actually a better experience than this app, but the real problem with this app (and the reason I've deleted it) it that frequently it starts opening the App Store to a crappy cheap game--multiple times while reading an article. It does so automatically without a user clicking a link. At least the website doesn't keep kicking you out of the article you're trying to read,
Still a clunky, crashy battery hog
I like Salon content aside from the increasing reliance on clickbait titles (how many situations are truly shocking/disgusting/ sickening/horrifying etc?). The app however has long been a consistent source of frustration. It's slow, it hangs up and crashes regularly, and it is a raging battery hog! Seriously, 10 minutes reading Salon drains 20% - far more than any other app I use. Even games. What's up with that?
