What's New in Version 4.5
Finally! A brand new update for iOS 7 including an all-new user interface that matches the BGR.com website and works beautifully with iOS 7. Push notifications are enabled in this version so you can always keep up with the latest breaking stories, and we have redone the app from the ground up, in addition to squashing more bugs than Timon & Pumbaa.
This App has lost any value
I have used this app for years! I enjoy the information from the blog and read articles several times each day to stay up to date. Earlier this year the app began only showing articles that were less than 12 hours old which wasn't a big issue for me as I check so frequently that I rarely missed anything. But starting today there is a bug with the ads on the app and they are automatically taking you out of the to either the App Store for apps that are being advertised or to safari if it's an ad for a website. You only get about 15 seconds on the article before it redirects you so you can't even read a full article. Seriously BGR either remove the app from the App Store or maintain it. Do not leave your readers with such a bad taste in their mouth.
Poor app for a website that specializes in tech
There are numerous problems with this app. First, at the moment you can't view any of the posts. Second you can only go back so far in timeline. Third, there is no way to save stories to your Reading list or otherwise bookmark them. You do have to email you them to yourself or go over to the website, which defeats the point of having an app. And an odd design choice, you can't slide left or right to switch the next story. Instead you have to use arrow keys at the bottom
I have been a fan of BGR for years and keep up with all of my gadget needs and previews via their articles. The app used to run very light and consistent but the current release has rendered the app nearly useless.
Recently, I've noticed it takes nearly 30 seconds for the screen to unfreeze and allow me to click into the updated articles (via iPhone 6+). Once inside the articles the app often freezes and occasionally none or only part of the article is displayed. I am hopeful these issues will be addressed in an upcoming app update/refresh!
