We obsessively cover the auto industry at Autoblog, but keeping up with the latest auto news and finding the right car should not require being chained to your desk or stuck in a coffee shop. With the Autoblog app, you can now take the latest in automotive news, reviews and car shopping tools wherever you go.
What's New in Version 2.0.0
- New UI with emphasis on "Featured" content and imagery
- New swipe behavior allowing easier access to menu, search and additional content
- Easy access to car buying research tools and new and used vehicle listings
The latest update to the Autoblog application can be said to be an overall improvement to the user experience but it can also be said to have its cons as well. First the positives and that can be said to be the enriched auto tools that allow you to easier research vehicles to buy, lease, price or get information on. The update has also allowed Autoblog VR to be incorporated which allows you a simulated experience from inside a vehicle when driving. In terms of aesthetics the interface hasn't improved much to take advantage of the high resolution iOS 9 offers which is a shame since users should be able to view many of the beautiful vehicles in a much better light, especially since sideshow galleries are now present. The vehicle news section has been expanded with many more categories including old favorites such as Autoblog Green, Translogic, and new ones such as celebrity, H2 powered and many more. A drawback can be said here as the news section is a bit more complicated instead of the more simple four main categories of news which existed in the old app. The darker background to articles also makes it more difficult to read. Users can still share and save these articles though. The new version of the app offers many improvements and is still recommended as a download for those who love to follow the automotive world.
Still no iPad support!?
New update is sharp but I didn't like the sliding mechanism I much rather go with the previous one that had the listed articles so please give us the option to choose either sliding or fully lested articles
This used to be my obsession for auto news each day. Now, with the latest update, I can't see the entire article headline. I have to open each article to see if it is worth reading. Who's idea was that?! Now I only open the app if I'm really bored and desperate for auto news. So sad.
