What's New in Version 6.8.4
Minor bug Fixes
Crashes when load/click pictures
I Love the AP as an essential source or news. But I had patiently been waiting for several months to a fix often cited in the reviews which is - "when I click on the pictures associated with a story the app freezes and crashes" in the past it zoomed into the photo and allowed you to view a slideshow related to an article. Now it will not show any photos and crashes the app on attempt to view or click on any photos. And this recent update seems to Not have fixed that issue, so after several months the "several bugs" updated seems a bit lean. I Understand these are complex applications, but this would be greatly appreciated as photographers undoubtedly put in hard work, and AP pays for them, thank you for reading and addressing the continuing issue for my experience.
Good news, bad notifications
This app should be a 5 star App except for one feature I have been noticing. Anytime I get an AP Alert or Breaking News update on my phone or lock screen I typically want to see what is going on. When I swipe to open the story or follow it through my notification center, rather than being directed to that story I am brought to the hope page of the App. I then try and check “Most Recent” or “Top News” for the story that just came through but I I can never find it. If this feature were to be fixed I know that I would have rated this at 5 stars.
When it gives me the latest news I would rate it 5 stars. The problem I am having is
it will not refresh the stories. I have deleted and reinstalled the app multiple times with it working at first then not the next day. I have updated to an iPhone 5S and all my other apps work fine. Since I use this app as my main news source this is a big disappointment. I hope they will send out a new update that works consistently. I was more than satisfied with the earlier version on my other iPhone. My wife has another 5S and she is satisfied since she can get the latest news all the time.
