Bloated and Demoted
The splash screen's colors of dirty pool room felt against a font accented in airplane toilet water blue is a fitting introductory page to this mile-high blowout of an app. Lean out the design and open it up. The meme style headlines are cheesier looking than anything Rupert Murdock could ever imagine. Don't make me click on slideshows to see photos. Lay viewable images in the stories and make them work. Buzzfeed does. Bezos' updated e-rag's app does. Why can't you? Put the app's functionality and modern layout of content at center stage. The futility of posting comments from an iPhone while signed in through Facebook has led me to the abyss. Keying in text while the cursor sits motionless; blinking, mocking; flipping. Submitting a well thought out post only to have nothing happen even after pressing 'Submit' 100x can burst even the most robust of blood vessels. The app succeeds in one way though...diverting my desire to participate in the article comments and conversations. I now have more time to edit my App Store comments on this wet blanket of an app. Thank you!
Best news, worst app.
I love HuffPost, but the latest update is completely broken. Please start from scratch, and hire a tech staff that has actually seen an iPhone before this time. Seriously, you guys finally had the old one working smoothly, and now it won't even load up. Please just let us go back to the previous version!
I deleted the app, waited a few weeks, and reinstalled. It worked more or less for 3 days, then locked up in a permanent "refreshing" state. The only way I could be more frustrated is if this had happened during an election cycle.
The latest update has the app working again, but now the videos auto-starting bug is back. I swear, that was taken care of years ago! Where do you find these programmers?
Update: Oh HuffPost... You kinda had it working for a while, but you had to mess with it. Now we've got the Pop-up ads every single article, sometimes several times in one article.
Unprompted Dish Network Ads Open Up Every 5 Minutes
Not much more to say other than they reshuffle and retitle their stories more often then the Artist formerly known as Prince for no good reason and without adding any new content.
You cannot resize the text in their articles nor can you zoom into photos or text in the page or save Abu photos if you like them, but if you go to the HuffPost website you often can. Just more random features taken away from you--AND NOW GET DISH NETWORK!!!
Sorry that pops up for no reason periodically. Don't blame me, I didn't design it!
