Used to love this App


This used to be a great app: I loved its information dense user interface where I could tell what was new an interesting at a glance, without scrolling, and I could organize information in the order in which I wanted to see it. No more. I used to bring it up many times a day to check what was new. I haven't gotten rid of it but now I bring it up maybe a couple of times a month to see if its developers have heeded customer calls to bring back its old info-dense user interface. A couple of years ago one or more user interface idiots got a hold of this app and decided to ruin it: now it takes lots of effort, many clicks and lots of scrolling to get what used to be available at a single quick glance. The new interface is a click/scroll nightmare. And cannot be tailored to my preference anymore either. Wonderful. Not. Interestingly, online newspapers have gone in the opposite direction: from this sort of poor, information sparse interface to an information dense grid format very much like what this used to be. Did you guys hire a failed online newspaper designer?

Please Fix This App😔


I see that I wrote the message below back in December 2016. Please, please fix this App! I miss it so much!!

Oh how I wish this wonderful new app would return in full-force! In the beginning, when it was called SkyGrid, it was my favorite app! SkyGrid had some challenges towards the end of its life but then it morphed into Algo, which has also been my favorite! Although it presents many challenges, I check it multiple times per day hoping it will return to it’s ease of user ability! I just can’t give it up! Please, please consider revising it once again! PLEASE!!

App dead. Website down. Again. And again. Some hope.


19 Aug 2017. "Algo has been acquired and some exciting updates are coming." Let's see what happens.

10 Aug 2017. The app is working... sort of. All the followed topics are incorrectly showing that they were "last updated seven months ago". Oddly, they are actually being updated, but aren't being flagged properly. Deleting and re-adding topics doesn't help: even newly added ones show "last updated seven months ago".

7 Aug 2017. Servers are up, but app doesn't update new article counts as it should. At least the company is alive. Let's see if they fix this soon.

5 Aug 2017. Algo servers have been down since the start of the month. There's no way of knowing if it's a technical problem, or if the company just went out of business.
[earlier] Here we go again. It's a recurring pattern. This is a very useful application -- when it works. Right now, it doesn't. Perhaps it is being updated. Who knows? If this sort of system shutdown is going to continue to be a problem, then perhaps some sort of notification should be built into the app.
