What's New in Version 4.5.5
This update is focused on improving the stability and experience of the IGN iOS app. We’re recently become aware of some users experiencing video ads autoplaying in the background while browsing content which is COMPLETELY not our desire. We’re actively working with Google (the provider of these ads) on finding a way to shut them off and hope to have this issue resolved ASAP.
Other fixes and changes:
• For folks using the personalized MyFeed feature, duplicate stories in the feed should now no longer be an issue.
• Sharing content on iPad no longer crashes the app.
• Comment counts on content should now reflect reality. We still long for a return to our fantasy world, however.
• You can now use native iOS copy / paste functionality within the app.
• Video pre-roll ads can now be paused.
• Numerous bugs squashed and memory leaks plugged which should reduce the number of crashes. A little over 99% of our sessions are crash free but that’s still 1% of you that aren’t experiencing the app the way we intended. We’re very sorry for that and will always endeavor to get as close to 100% uptime as possible.
Awesome Gamer App
I think this app is very helpful in letting you know how good or bad a specific video game is. And I also like the feature where you can choose what you'd like to see in your news feed. It would be better if you could rate a game the same way you do on PC.
It's fine with some flaws.
Sometimes random video ads pop up which can be very annoying.
The comments section is a bit of a pain. You don't know who is responding to you and it won't let you post pictures when there is clearly an option to.
Other than that the app works fine and does what it needs to do.
I love IGN, but...
While I love IGN's content I do not love pop up ads that play over the videos you are trying to watch. The ads in between the articles and before ads are fine. Intrusive ads starting with no input from the user and even playing over the videos you are trying to watch is unacceptable. I'll revise my review if this gets corrected. In the meantime I will use another source for my gaming news. Hope you guys can correct this. I do enjoy your content.
