Needs major work
I'm working on a few technical projects. Hopefully one doesn't need to select one of the 230 products they cut off the name because it was too hard to show long text. Search results which don't tell you the product you searched under.
And then the search doesn't even return results relevant to the product selected let alone the key words. Ever
Selecting a product and version to add a feed errors saying I need to add a product and version
At this point, I don't know why this app was released. It's a joke at best.
The My Feeds customization does not work
Nice start on the app, but the My Feeds customization does not work well. The name field does not hold or populate to the feed icon. Feed items are not very narrow. Seemingly a lot of unrelated articles in what should be very narrow products areas.
A nice idea, but very clumsy execution.
