Ratings and Reviews
Thoughtless design, no search, no notification article open
I downloaded this in response after clicking a link to an article in Mobile Safari and seeing the popup which suggests the app.
I downloaded it, bit there was no way to search for the original article and the design of the app is very blah.
I went back to the original web link to see if the popup would offer to open the article in the app, but it doesnt.
Apart from the issues with distorted images mentioned by other reviewers, I found that non-ASCII characters like em-dashes were stripped from the articles; and links to other articles lead to an embedded web view, not the article within the app itself. There seems to be no advantage to the app compared to simply reading the website. Is it a cliché to say we expect more from Dr. Dobbs?
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
