What's New in Version 5.0.9
Code base maintenance.
The developers are incompetent
Also, when you finally can see the articles, click fast! Otherwise it will open up the App Store to download a kiddie game that no grown adult wants. I could fix this app in an afternoon if I were in charge.
Archaic interface hard on eyes
I am an avid Drudge Report reader, but this app for iOS is unreadable for me on my iPad (the text is too small and the UI is amateurish).
I am saddened at hearing that Matt Drudge has threatened legal action against the creator of the magnificent Drudge reader, "Simply Drudge," and forced its removal from the App Store. I am trying to get others tapped into the Drudge pipeline, but the lack of a credible reader for iOS is imposing too much friction.
Rather than going all litigious, Drudge should work with the Simply Drudge creator to come to a workable, win-win deal with him (because his app is heads and shoulders better than Drudge's).
Conclusion: Drudge is a magnificent news aggregator/clipping service, but a terrible modern-day UI designer.
12pt courier is a nice gimmick that harkens back to the 30s gadfly reporter -- I get it -- I like it. BUT I CAN'T/WON'T USE IT with my aging eyes. PLEEEEASE bring back simply Drudge. I'll pay for the bloody thing. Stop the small mindedness and work out a revenue sharing deal!!! Or just buy it and make it official!
It Used to be Good
This App has been destroyed. It used to be pretty good, but it now pushes various kinds of adware and malware that render it unusable and possibly dangerous. Just one example - after it loads now, there is a delay of several seconds, and then it pops up a box asking if you want to fill out a survey (which is really just an ad). This locks up the app, and the only option is to accept the "survey." If you take the survey, it goes on to offer some coupons or something. But as soon as you go back to the app, it pops up another box, asking if you want to take a survey on a different subject, again locking up the app. Stay away.
