New, better, but still major issues


The new look and feel of this app is a huge upgrade from the almost unusable older version. But it's not without major flaws.

The single greatest current fault is the interface re-design, which doesn't allow you to swipe from the previous and next full articles, you must now tap into an article, then tap back and tap on the next article. This is inefficient and annoying.

The posts display correctly about 40% of the time as compared to the website version. Most of the time the full article doesn’t load, cropping the first couple of paragraphs and then ending in a blank block of space.

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 Great


I used to love firing up Engadget on my iPad every morning and catching up on the latest tech related articles. Now the app has become a memory hog with headlines that extend past the screen size making scrolling thru news articles less than pleasant.

Come on Engadget (AOL), what happened? Are your app designers so incompetent they can’t make a useable app or do you just don’t care anymore?

I’ll keep checking the app every month or so to see if it has been updated to make it useable, but for now I have to get my tech news elsewhere.
