What's New in Version 3.0.2
The application does not finish refreshing.
I'm really tired of all these people writing terribly worded reviews about apps that don't work as they claim, and then not explaining why they don't work. I'm a huge fan of the onion, I get all of the podcasts on iTunes, so I know what this app is supposed to be like. Now the problem that everyone is having is that when they try and open this app, the app displays "the onion" and the goes to the front page, where it says its trying to get the stories, so instead of getting the stories, it just refreshes forever. Now if someone would just make a patch to fix this and all of the bad reviews, I'm sure this would be a great app, I can see its very nicely laid out. Just, please patch this app, because I know we're all tired of the dumb angry blondes posting reviews like "gimme refund" and "stupid app, don't buy!" Oh, and my favorite "I don't get it".
Hilarious content. Terrible app.
Everyone knows the onion is hilarious and awesome. This app is terrible though. I still continue to use it to get the content, but they make it so hard. It crashes frequently. Like very frequently. Like every third article or so. If it doesn't crash it freezes so that I just have to reset it manually. Don't bother trying to share any articles from the app because that function does not work. Also some of the articles display incorrectly it is clear that this program was coded very poorly. I went for so long thinking that they would update the app and fix the issues. But they never have. It's been terrible for a year at least. One star.
What more do you want?
The updates are good the content is great and frankly I don't understand what folks are belly aching over. Seriously it's free access to every onion article ever written with search capacity. It occasionally crashes but no more then other aps. Keep improving it onion ( like you do any ap) and fellow reviewers calm down!
