What's New in Version 2.3
Great site, but please update app!
This is my favorite website for news! But the app hasn't been updated since 2013… And it shows. Primarily, by having the font to be so large that it's hard to view more than a sentence at a time.
If the site had a mobile version I would just use that, it doesn't. So, at this point, I'm doing what I read other people do mostly: I tap the article & immediately tap "View in Safari." Safari will not deny percent be better, and then if not, I can just use Reading Mode.
But really, if they could just update the app a little, I'd give them 5 stars.
Good, Clean App
This app, in it's current form, is much better than it used to be. Links are quick and uncluttered, not like Drudge with the latter's endless screen paints and repaints. Returns to the main RCP link page are fast, allowing quick moves to the next article. RCP does a good job of including both liberal and conservative articles, allowing one to get a decent view of the the latest problems facing the country. It has now become my favorite read of the day.
Worst App I've used
I enjoy keeping up with current event in politics but I hate using this app. I can't even read a story without the app opening up Safari windows one after another or the App Store to download and install some stupid game.
The articles are bias towards the extreme left, cherry picked information and spin sound bites to support their narrative. They fit right in with the corrupt news media who cant even provide honest and credible information.
I know RCP doesn't necessarily write the stories but they should be willing to filter for creditable information to provide their subscribers and not a bunch of untrue crap from bias or bad journalists with no credibility.
