This app hasn't been updated in two years (i.e. since before iOS 8), and it shows. It crashed twice when I was exploring the app for the first time. Content is poorly and confusingly arranged. Menus are fake versions of iOS native ones.
AFP has the fairly unique strength of a huge, timely content library, but this is an abominable presentation of it. They are getting killed by Reuters and AP when it comes to mobile.
Made in Russia?
This app rates no stars. AFP has great material and some of the best reporting in the world, but what use is it if the app just gives you blank pages. If I were an AFP journalist, I would be insulted that all my hard work is being wasted on this non-functioning app. It must have been designed by the Russians since I can't seem to get any real news to display. Bring back the old app.
Stellar Content, Abominable App!
AFP files great quality reports daily; however this app is an abomination.
Earlier version was a simple, consistent app; yet this version is rife with glitches.
After a while I have to delete the app and reload it to my phone in order for it work; and still it only hobbles along until it's completely unworkable again.
