Ratings and Reviews
Absolutely unusable – buy Unread Instead
I've given up on this app and bought Unread instead and am very satisfied. Ashes turned into a total pile of 💩. It crashed 90+% of the time when refreshing. DO NOT BUY THIS APP. YOU WILL BE DISAPPOINTED.
As a recent Fever convert, I was anxiously waiting for any iPad app to support it. I've been following Ashes progress for a few weeks and was excited when it was released. On mY iPhone 5, performance is better, but still suffers from some animation stutters as well as slow touch sensitivity. On the iPad mini how beer the app in its current version is borderline unusable. It misses 80% of finger taps and swipes and when it does scroll, it jumps whole pages with single swipe motions. I'm hoping the pending 1.1 update improves iPad mini performance because I want to like this app. Looking forward to the next release.
Update: the 1.1 update has squashed almost all the bugs I saw in the prior version and has greatly improved performance on the iPad mini. This is a daily use app and I whole heartlessly recommend it. Keep the updates coming.
I enjoy Ashes general approach to iPhone and iPad UI and it feels nice and readable to me overall, but it currently requires an active connection for read/save actions.
Basically, while it caches articles just fine offline reading, it won't actually mark things AS read (or saved) when offline.
Once it becomes a better offline client for me and my underground subway commute—where 90% of my reading is done—I'll come back to using it; but for now, I'll have to use another Fever° client.
