What's New in Version 5.8
I used to use this app six times a day for the latest news and images of really cool cars. CarBuzz had a great thing going but as new app updates came out, I started to dread using this app. Here are the reason why. 1. Each and every time you access this app it takes 1-3 minutes to load. It's not like waiting means new articles either.. Most of the time nothing new was added. A lot of time it hangs during the update on access and I have to kill the app a few times before it can complete the updates. 2: they added ADS and a lot of it. Too much. Having a ad when the app updates is fine but now you have pop up adds that makes you click to close. You used to have ads so perfectly mixed into you app experience but now., it's a mess. 3: this my be the worst part too. You cars listings for some of the key brands are out of date. This should never be. I love the way you have each model in a brand at the top of the page but it's not updated. Models you have listed as coming soon with the car cover image are cars that's been out for months. They STOPPED caring about the content and it really shows.
I've been using this app for almost 3 years pretty much daily. In the past it was great. Before it became more popular.
The app is overrun with "trolls" in the comments section. And the articles hold very little more than regurgitated facts from other automotive news sites. Every once in awhile they will do an "editorials" post but those seem to be mostly pictures with a few blanket statements written on the matter.
They should strive to educate their readers on cars rather than create the continuously watered down and on many occasions factless articles.
That all being said, there is a reason I've been using it for nearly 3 years. If you like cars a lot, it is an easy and quick way to see the latest news. There are a few genuinely good articles here and there and the comments section, though majorly flawed, can be a good source of gear head bantering.
Great App but way too much ads!!!
I came here to write a review, only because lately this app has been bombarding me with ads. I understand that developers need to pay bills, but a pop-up every time I return (even after 20 seconds) is pushing it. Car news can be easily replaced by a link in your browser to one of few other websites that provide this info - so that said, it's nice to have an app, but by the time you're thru with ads - might as well go to a website.
On the design: it might be fine for many, but I've grown to polished designs from popular apps like these - this one is lacking a bit (I mean that "Next 10" button is awful and out of place - maybe it should be static without the need to scroll down), but if anything navigation can use a little rethinking.
Here are a few ideas:
1. Consolidate comments to each article not each page/photo.
2. I hate to rotate my phone to see both halves of the photo - I'd rather see the whole photo fit within the screen and tap on it to zoom in (but u can also keep the rotate option).
3. Let the "swipe to go back" gesture go back to main list of articles once u reach the first page.
I'll give it about a month and if the ads dont tone down - I'll have to delete.
It was a great experience - was...
