Ratings and Reviews
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)
Extreme leftist editors and overall buggy app
I’ve been reading Engadget for about 10 years, I always loved their reporting of the latest tech trends but as of the last presidential election they have been very political. I like to read and obsess about gadgets when I want to escape the hyper politicized nature of the times we live in. This is impossible to do in the Engadget app, opinions are disguised as factual articles, Op-Ed’s are to the far left, and are often racist and sexist in nature. I will be searching for another gadget blog.
The app is extremely buggy as well, their latest update left out entire paragraphs in every blog post. Had to resort to their sluggish website.
