Latest Update Is Disappointing
I have been using Flipboard for a few years now and have found it to be pretty useful as a news reader. Most of the last few updates have made it better and better of late — especially appreciated the ability to give a thumbs down to articles in the aggregator that I wasn’t interested in, but I didn’t like the update that took away the ability to add nuances such as which specific topic made me uninterested in the article rather than simply not liking a particular website.
What really annoyed me this last update was the change to the Share button. Now it forces me to hit a second button in order to save articles to Pocket because, no, I do not want to share articles from Flipboard with specific Facebook friends, and I definitely don’t want that as my first choice. It’s an incredibly obnoxious change and if it doesn’t go back to the way it was, I will probably start putting some effort into finding a new app for this purpose.
Well, the dreaded day is almost here. The day I knew was coming. The day they shutdown Zite, my all-time favorite iPhone app. Wow! I was going to post a long, snarky review about it, but really what's the point? It's a done deal. Just another of life's many disapointments. Instead of that, immediately after posting THIS review -- two full weeks before Zite's scheduled shutdown date -- I will immediately delete BOTH Zite (because I'm mad at the original owner for being a sell out) AND Flipboard (because it's just another crappy application) from my iPhone and start getting all my news articles from the new Apple News app (which isn't great but is far better than Flipboard) instead until something better comes along, which we all know will happen eventually; it's just a matter if time. In fact, someone is probably working on it as I write this review (note to developers: while I can't speak for other Zite enthusiasts, I would be willing to PAY for another news app that's as good as Zite). But I will NEVER use Zite OR Flipboard again from this day forward. I'm sick of the entire, sad situation. See Ya!
Flipboard < Zite
Update: With Zite closing on December 7, I will be deleting this app from my phone. The new iPhone news feed is way better than Flipboard, but I am sad to see Zite go. A far superior app to flipboard it was.
Original: From a clunky display (max 3 stories before I have to flip?), to a less intuitive design, this app is far less efficient than zite. It assumes I am going to read every article it recommends, which is absurd. The incessant flipping is also enough to make anyone nauseous. Zite was clean. Zite was relevant. Zite allowed me to be exposed to the maximum amount of news stories in the shortest amount of time. Just because we have the technology to "flip" stuff doesn't mean you should design a whole UI based off it. When flipboard bought Zite they should have realized what the superior product was and changed to that format. Now I'm forced to go find another source of information that doesn't take 6 hours to flip through to find something I want to read.
