Open in Safari in background? Landscape mode?
While this is the app I use most regularly to find interesting reading, it could use a couple of improvements. (1) Why is there no landscape mode? Some articles are just about unreadable in portrait orientation: if Prismatic would just support landscape orientation, it would go a long way towards making such articles readable. (2) It would be a lot more convenient if one could open an article not just in Safari, but IN THE BACKGROUND in Safari for later reading, and continue to browse within Prismatic.
Glad I found this!
Bummed about losing my Zite (I even loved their color scheme) and tried to replace it with Flipboard (ick), but thankfully found Prismatic which is a great alternative and even has its own pluses. It's easier to choose topics, follow specific places and decide if you like or don't like what you are being shown. I keep my AP News app for deep news and my Prismatic for everything else but I could easily use just prismatic if I wanted to set it up that way. Very pleased with the ease and versatility!
Amazing news algorithm, poor reader
Prismatic absolutely has an amazing aggregation algorithm. It will get you the news you are interested in, every day. It’s one of my favorite apps.
However, their web page view is supremely frustrating. It’s slow. It’s impossible to share the direct URL from it, so the app is unusable with any other apps like twitter, Facebook, Buffer, and Medium.
Prisimatic should stop trying to send people back to their site via the app and just add a working “Open source URL in Safari” option.
