Still needs work.
Definitely doesn't seem optimized for the iPhone 6/6S or the Plus, and is still lacking a lot of features. You can't connect to any services, as it refers you to the system settings, which aren't being blocked. The comments were removed a while back and have not been replaced. There's also no way to sync "read articles" between devices, so either you must remember what you read, or stick with just one device. The app has a lot of potential, but can easily be overlooked for the lack of any meaningful development.
I actually like this app. I haven't had any problems with it, except that not all videos show up. But otherwise their development team is very responsive!! I actually get a response on the same day sometimes; can't say that about others.
Keep up the great work guys :)
UPDATE: I still prefer the app over the mobile site, but I'm going to have to change my rating from a 5 stars to 3 since the commenting section has been missing for so long.
If it's not broken, BREAK IT!
In typical AOL fashion, an unneeded website makeover has somehow also translated to "let's make the app work like the mobile webpage, too", thus fully contaminating the one good tech news app that wasn't a resource hog.
App is unnecessarily slow to load, devoid of graphics that accompany news items, and generally feels like a piece of software that a consultant promised would migrate data from the old version, work better in the new version, and would only take 2 weeks to deploy, all the while the end result, 6 months later, is that nothing works as promised. Again, that's AOL for ya.
