Horrible version update
First, there is no landscape mode. With previous versions and iPhone version I would get lists of stories with small pictures. Easy to access quickly. This version shows maybe 1-2 articles on the entire screen and I have to scroll and scroll... I've lost interest. Considering all news I read is from a portable device I expect it to be quick and easy to access without a bunch of scrolling or flipping or BS. Now there is no continuity between iPhone and iPad apps. This was something that made viewing material easier because, regardless of the device, everything was similar. You have taken something that was user friendly across multiple devices and turned it into something frustrating, annoying and confusing. Has Microsoft started building you apps?
This update killed the App. It is slow, the UI is blah and does not have landscape mode. It crashes CONSTANTLY and I am always being redirected to Safari for an ad that is opening even without clicking on anything. I can not read a article without the app closing or a ad pop up. I have not even tried the video. The need to just dump this version and start all over. Hopefully Fox didn't spend a ton of money to some app developer.
Omg what a mess this update was do not update!
I thought it was bad on my IPhone, just tried using it on my iPad, what a mess! If you try to scroll on news stories and mistakenly touch the right side to scroll there are hidden advertising that throws you into your device trying to access those websites. You have to power off as it opens continuing the same website over and over until everything crashes
