What's New in Version 5.0.4
* Bug fixes
Great articles ruined by nightmare app
I love a lot of the articles but this app is the worst one on my phone by far. Huge memory hog, doesn't load giant sections of articles, impossible to read some of the articles through the app due to formatting issues (such as recommended reading articles), and now worst of all they starting having autoplaying video ads. If these video ads are not removed by the next update, I am going to delete it for good. Also, it completely destroys my battery (my phone normally lasts all day but when using this app it's not unusual for me to lose 10% of more of my battery in 15 minutes despite that being 1-2% with other third party apps)
Used to be my go to source
I used to love Engadget. The app worked great. Content had just the right amount of details and was quick to read and catch up.
Now, I can't even read an article! The second I open one, the App Store pops up trying to get me to download some stupid app. Close the App Store, go back to Engadget and the App Store opens up again for a different useless app.
I am done with ad supported sites and apps. Let me pay to get rid of the stupid ads and I may come back, but for now... bye bye Engadget.
No longer any good
Two years ago: Timely, accurate content. That is key. Format continues to improve.
Now: format is worse. Content is more limited. App doesn't work as well. Purple isn't a good color, so at least give us an option. Must manually scroll back to the top. Even seems like fewer reviews and they aren't just part of the scroll.
Like other have said, ads are also more frequent and intrusive. Will keep the app, but no longer a daily use app. Too bad really.
