Ads are better, app is better

John W Kennedy

The last time I reviewed this, I complained about the underpowered ad server making the app almost unusable. It’s much better now, but the lag is still noticeable, which probably means that a fairly small increase in the number of users will make it hit the knee of the curve again. I hope it’s watched closely, so it doesn’t reach another crisis.

Other than that, I have the common complaints—irrelevant pictures, mostly. I’m also not sure what the use is of the separate “Home” and “News Home” sections.

But I’m glad to see the improvements, and I’d recommend this app to anyone who wants to follow New Jersey news.

Yikes!

I'm not sure what the goal in this revision was other than to make the ads more prominent. The mix of navigation modes is confusing and distracting. There are two sections of untitled horizontal swipe followed by a long section of vertical scrolling. I don't understand the value of this new model at all. While the old app appeared dated, the navigation model was consistent. Perhaps a look at other apps such as Flipboard, Facebook, or even the CNN iOS app would provide a better model for good user experience engineering. Thanks for getting more graphical, and I support making the ads more visible. That said please consider handing this app to new users and watch them as they navigate it. A fresh run at this would be very much appreciated.

What's with the forced open of ads from the App Store?

First let me say that I like this app and find it convenient for stories about NJ. However, beginning this week the app started switching me over to the App Store asking me to buy random games. Is this supposed to do this or is there some serious bug? I don't mind seeing a few ads but hijacking my phone is a non-starter. If the problem isn't fixed soon I'm deleting the app.

Yes, the ad problem is better, but it has been replaced by a new problem. Now, whenever I click on a photo the app crashes. Come on guys, building a simple news app should not be that difficult!
