Update ruined it.
It's ruined. The previous versions have all been straight to the point and easy to navigate. Not anymore. The new version looks flashy and professional, but it's simply not the same.
It's all over the place, no more simply scrolling up and down for all news. Now you must scroll all over and hit different links to get to separate topics.
Surprisingly, this mobile app is no longer mobile friendly. I've had this for years, and I used to read this everyday, when it was simple and easy. Now, I may not bother anymore. Give an option similar to previous versions to view all news, it's the least you could do.
Dreadful update of once-loved app
Title says it all. This was once one of my favorite apps and a great way to skim new science articles and read whatever first appealed. New UI means you have to hit a million buttons to find anything (if you can!) and there is no way to simply skim a variety of topics and enjoy. You have to have an idea in advance what might grab your attention--not at all, judging by the many negative reviews of the update, now a lot of us used the app.
Sometimes simpler is better, guys. I have tried playing with this new version and am so disheartened I am deleting it instead. :(
I would give zero stars if I could. Bummer.
Beautiful way to keep up with science
The world of science is changing all the time and I love keeping up with it. I've had the Discovery News app for a while and this is a HUGE improvement over the old versions.
Video plays quickly, articles look awesome and it's super zippy. Will it be my new fav app? Time will tell.
