What's New in Version 2.4.1
Great content, but ads and video issues
I find tech crunch a wonderful way to keep up on technology news. The content is pretty top-notch. This app, unfortunately, does not do that content justice. The advertisements can be intrusive at times. I'm a big fan of the daily crunch report video (since it is a convenient way to catch up on the news over my lunch break), but I've been unable to access any videos on TechCrunch for over a year. I can navigate to the specific video, but then I just get a black screen that perpetually says loading video. Data point: videos work fine from web browser such as Google Chrome.
Love TechCrunch, but the app could use some improvements
I use the TechCrunch app multiple times per day. It works, but it's far from perfect. The biggest problem is that certain article types (slideshows, etc.) can't be viewed in the app, the article just displays as blank. I also experience crashes at least once a week. On a separate note, the stories seem to be getting more political in nature by the day. It sometimes can be frustrating having to look through multiple highly political editorial pieces before getting to an actual news story.
Why would anyone want an OBTRUSIVE pop-up ad flashed into your face when trying to read an article? Why would an advertiser even want to promote their product this way? Why would a tech news app--the only one left now that Engadget has jumped the shark--lower their standards to include this form of advert? Oh... it's also owned by AOL. Now I see. It's run by the same balloon heads that destroyed the other app. Great job folks. I suppose it was a matter of time.
Banner ads should be enough. You're being greedy. One star until you dial it down.
