So Far So GREAT!!!!
Ok, I'm not sure if it will last but as of now I LOVE the NEW FOXNEWS APP.
Why am I not so optimistic? The last app was good but it would crash all the time, pictures & videos would never load correctly, and did I mention it would crash all the time.
But I'm not eating the old app, this is about the new app. The layout (at first confusing) is AWESOME. It's easy to navigate and the top stories are BIG and at the top.
If this app continues to work without problems, and I can click links and actually get videos to play and pictures to open, then this will be one of my FAVORITE apps in the appstore.
On a side note, I'm republican and enjoy foxnews right side approach but honestly guys when you lean so far right it puts me off a bit. I don't mind right-central news but this far right stuff you've been putting on the channel, website, and app has gotten me to download huffington post just so I can stay truly balanced. Please get more toward the middle of the aisle, you can stay to the right just stop putting yourself in the far right corner, then it's not news, it's just an opinionated talk show.
Buggy & Bizarre Interface
This app has crashed at least a half dozen times in the two days I've been using it. Not fun.
I don't mind the sidebar menu. It's now almost standard in apps so it's fine. But the rest of the interface is just bizarre. Why is it different depending on where I am in the app? The top news experience is totally different than the category ones. It makes no sense.
And in the top news section. What purpose does it serve to change the size of the news capsule as I pull it up? I'm trying to read the thing and you're moving the words around on me. Again, it makes no sense.
It almost seems like you just randy threw stuff on the screen too. Some stuff is a screenwide horizontal bar, some are boxes, they all have varying amounts of text, some have pix some don't. Why? What's different about the boxes? I keep thinking their ads or something. Totally random. None of it makes sense.
Your previous app may not have been pretty, but it was highly functional. A few tweaks were all that was needed, like more stories and a slightly taller category nav.
The interface in this new app just doesn't make sense. It's like you replaced your UX experts with art school grads. It's all form over function. Your app is nowhere near the quality of your news.
A huge step backwards
The old user interface was much simpler to use and easier to stay abreast of the current news released.
This new interface is clumsy, while visually appealing, it is very ugly to use. Trying to identify if you've actually seen all the news within the section requires multiple back-and-forth between the menu, scrolling, clicking, expanding and further scrolling with in the the newly shown section. After all that effort you may find one or two items that appears to be new and not shown in the previous section.
Honestly, this is a huge downgrade in my opinion. This change makes it much more difficult to use the application and has already reduced the number of times I use the application.
The beauty of the previous version was its simplicity of use which immediately allowed you to jump to the section of interest and quickly scroll to see what new information had been posted. It allowed you to quickly identify articles that you were interested in and what was current information. The old interface made it very quick and easy to access the application multiple times during the day and stay abreast of breaking news. This new app does not provide that capability.
