What's New in Version 3.21
Bug fixes and performance improvements.
Bare bones, many bugs.
The BI web site has become almost unusable on my iPad 4 (mostly due to excessive widgets), so I decided to give their new app a try. It's okay for reading basic articles, but that's it. Video integration is poor, and most slideshows don't work at all. The comments section is hard to view and impossible to interact with. For an online news aggregator that seems to adore Apple, this app is a terrible commentary on BI's level of technological sophistication. An amateur effort, especially for the second incarnation of this app.
Great auto-update Feature
I like the variable update times that can be controlled by the standard Settings app, and is frequency adjusted.
The app is greatly improved over the last version. No more waiting for pages to load. Very fast, agile, intuitive. I almost gave up on this app, but now it's a keeper. Better than Huff Post now.
I love Business Insider, and this app is definitely faster than reading in the phone browser. I would love to see them implement multiple tabs, and there's a bug where videos keep re-appearing even when you move on to a different article. I also wish the app would pick up where I left off, which it doesn't do if I'm in the middle of an article.
