What's New in Version 3.1.6
3.1.6 Contains several bug fixes for bugs found in 3.1.5
We've received a lot of feedback and would like to thank everyone who has contacted us. We've worked on building many of the popular requests.
3.1.5 is a great new version of Algo that includes:
- A new modern layout, easily switch between your favourite topics with our new menu based navigation.
- A new app icon.
- Improvements to design all around the app.
- Dramatic improvements to the performance of the app, it now uses a lot less resources without compromising any features.
- Fixes to a LOT of bugs. We're constantly working on fixing any bugs that we see.
- A new easier topic selection system for when you first sigh up.
We're already working away on building 3.1.6, be sure to contact us if you have any feedback!
Preset topic names are lost!
Preset topic names seem to be viewed now, as v3.1.5 had a tendency to be unseen. The 'new' update indicators to the right of the topic names are STILL BROKEN!
How can a topic article be 'new', when the last look of that topic, just minutes ago shows the same results? When other topics show as 'new', how come they disappear/reappear randomly? Again, the 'new' update indicators are BROKEN!! ---
Although the app is less crash-prone, the updates before v3.1.5 were more asthetically pleasing and the tiles for the topics could be arranged in a certain order; not the forced alphabetical layout of the current version.
I agree wth other reviewers; the tile format was so much better. I hate the fact that now the topic names (when visible), are sorted alphabetically! Bring back the old view??
ALGO -- PLEASE FIX THIS PIECE OF "S#$T"!

Excellent Way To Follow Any Topic--Until Now
After giving this app five stars and a glowing review they changed the format in a careless and unusable way.
This app was never great at capturing all available news. You still needed to double-check Google. Now they have taken away the picture icons for each category which visually aids in seeing if there is an update. Now the topics seem to all say, "new" when there is nothing new (some of the time). Without the visual aid or toggle to get back to said view I'd have to go into every single topic to find out if something is actually new. And--as mentioned--Algo has never been good at capturing all of it anyway.
Newest update goes nowhere. Keeps going back to update button. Needs a fast fix.
