Content vs Presentation
Few places on the ever expanding web hold even a kernel of truth that you'll find here. Try it for a week straight and you'll see for yourself, or grow mature enough and try again to see if you can wake up to the world around you and begin to think and reason for yourself. If you don't want ads, download an adblocker... Fool. Or take ads for what they are and realize every website and app has ads on it in order to thrive. Do you know how much newspaper subscriptions cost? Drudge doesn't ask you personally for money. He provides a real-time feed of news around the world, free of charge. There are few people that command as much respect for their effort as Mr. Drudge. Dittos Mr. Drudge. Long Live Drudge.
Safari is a better experience
This app has been through many revisions from a simple embedded WebKit browser in an app to a whacko-do crazy interface and a reversion back to being a browser in an app. At least now it shows a column at a time. It is slow when loading an actual article. It still feels clunky.
I ran the far superior SimplyDrudge app who was forcefully removed under legal threat from the App Store by the official licensed DrudgeReport developers lawyers. Apparently they want their ads delivered while they provide a terrible user experience.
I am still running SimplyDrudge and will continue to do so as long as it still works. It parses and renders the content in a much better way and the whole experience lets you enjoy Matts content aggregation. Unfortunately others won't be able to download it as it's gone from the App Store.
You are better off running Safari with an ad blocker but please whitelist the DrudgeReport. I only block the news site ads, Drudge isn't terrible with their ads.
Works great for me...
I'm not sure what the users who gave this app poor reviews are talking about. The app is really good as far as I'm concerned and works just as well, if not better, than the actual website. It's clean and user-friendly and I have not experienced many ads at all and definitely no pop-up ads. Have not been using very long but I consider it to be excellent so far.
