What's New in Version 4.5.8
A faster app experience and few fixes and clean-up in this release:
• We're working with Twinprime to make the IGN app even faster with their tech now available in this version of the app.
• Fixed a display issue with some long headers plus some design clean-up.
• Removed (yes, you heard right -- removed) some advertising from the app.
• Made disclaimers on some of our remaining ads more clear.
Thanks, as always, for using the IGN app!
I don't know what's going on...
I'm sorry guys but this app has really taken a turn for worse lately. I suppose it mostly works but it's so slow and unresponsive much of the time while browsing stories and it's just not a pleasant experience. It wasn't always this way, however. That's why it's so disappointing.
I think the main change is that the ads are often animated now and this really just bogs down the entire browsing experience.
Worst of all is that the app often times opens ads in safari without me even clicking on them and it also autoplays video ads randomly as well.
I completely understand that ads are largely how IGN makes their money but this has been so invasive that it's really hurt the ability to get to the articles and enjoy your content.
I've been using this app for years and it's been a rollercoaster ride. It improves little things and completely breaks others.
I love IGN. The staff and content has been consistently great but this app... This app has always been below par and I've started using other apps entirely to view your content so I can get an attractive and reliable experience.
I'll keep checking back to hopefully see marked improvement in this app but for now, it's just really rough.
Auto playing videos again
This issue keeps popping up what feels like every other IGN app update but the videos are automatically playing again which is super annoying. Simply scrolling down the list of articles prompts any video to stop my music, podcast or whatever Imm listening to automatically start playing the video. It'd be great if you guys could kill this bug once and for all.
Can we get an ad free experience if we pay a few bucks please? Being forced to watch the same four or five videos month after month gets old really fast. I find myself only watching or going to videos / articles I'm positive I want just so I don't have to suffer through the same adverts over and over and over and over and over and over again.
Great for the most part but...
This is an awesome app for the most part, anything and everything you want to know about whatever game you happen to be playing is right there at your fingertips but when I load a walkthrough or review almost none of the photos will load. The information is there in txt but if your looking for a particular spot on a map where you really need a photo to find what your looking for better just stick with the website. The search results loading also seems to be an issue sometimes I have to resubmit the search or compleat lay reload the app. And it's not my iPad I also have the same issues on my iPhone. Great concept guys just needs a little tweeking.
