I really don’t like the way the app is set up for iPad or iPhone. I want to see the entire body of my mail. That side bar takes up nearly half my screen. It should not be locked in place.
Also this new version doesn’t let me sort. I really thought the ability to only see people I know vs everyone was what kept AOL a step above all other vendors. Now your just blanketed with it all even on the desktop version.
On the IPad/phone I have no control of my contacts. Have to go to desk top to add remove edit I can’t even check that the address is correct because it’s to small and no way to preview.
For all the money I’m paying I might as well go free on gmail or something. Very disappointed in the advancement it been more of a take away. Oh yes and I can’t even put my cute tags as my signature it doesn’t know how to save my pictures. Ugh😳🙀

Edited: I used to love this app


It seems that the issues have all been addressed during the last update so I am changing my review and upgrading from one star to five.

I have used this app for years and I suppose I took for granted that it simply did what it was supposed to do. It worked smoothly and allowed me to read my mail, mark items as unread, and separate it into folders. (I have simple email needs)
A few weeks ago it started occasionally freezing up. I updated my OS to 11 and then updated the app. This latest version barely opens at all and freezes up almost every time. Please fix it and I will change my review. For now, I can only give it one star.



Seriously… What good is this app for email purposes on an IPAD? What is even worse, I’m an idiot who actually pays you each month and I can’t change font size… I can’t choose fonts… I can’t change the color of the font… I have to send out left justified emails as opposed to centered emails which is my preference...Plus… It is impossible to add additional email addresses to an address book or an email group list! Seriously? Seriously? Absolutely positively useless to me...If you can do it on a desktop you should be able to do it on an iPad. I thought apps were supposed to make everything easier and better and greater and faster and all that good stuff… Epic epic fail developers! Fix it… Fix it yesterday

Plus… It took literally seven phone calls talking to seven different people in your support staff to finally tell me that what I wanted to do was impossible… Just Effen terrific!
