What's New in Version 3.0.2
Great content, bug riddled app.
Update: App doesn't seem to update since 17th December. Is this App still supported? Have tried to report the issue but the app support button takes me to a 'page not found' page on the Onion website.
Again, this App could be brilliant if the many, many bugs were fixed. As it is, with the problems listed below in my review (and others) coupled with the fact it doesn't update the 'news' now, it is literally useless.
PREVIOUS REVIEW BELOW:
The content itself is 5 star and well worth persevering with the app itself, which causes constant frustration. Certain stories cause regular crashes and it usually locks for several seconds after the initial load up. These are major, regular problems which limit the functionality severely. If these issues could be fixed then this would be a five star app overall; the app interface is well designed and would be a joy to use if it wasn't for the above issues.
The app itself is fine but Im not a huge fan of the ads, they should have a separate paid version too. As always with the onion some stuff is really funny, and some of it falls flat.
Also why is this in the "news" section, it's satire, it's all a great big joke, really should be in the entertainment section. I'm guessing the guy at Apple who approved this as news hasn't been fired yet for being a dope?
I have never had any issues with the operational ability of this app and I've had it for we'll over a year. therefore people should try reinstalling it.
It's stupid news; to pass the time of day, but thoroughly funny!
