What's New in Version 2.2.3
• Crunchbase integration improvements
• Bug fixes, performance enhancements
For anyone interested in tech or entrepreneurship, this is a necessary source for news and for keeping relevant to the tech world. My one minor complaint is just the amount of articles that have clear and obvious errors of grammar, spelling or just plain thought errors or sentence structure errors. If your paid job is to write articles, please have at least one moron read them for obvious mistakes and then polish the article accordingly.
Five-star news, two-star app.
This is one of the best sources for tech news. But, the app needs work. I keep reloading the app every once in a while hoping there is a caching issue with the Trending section, which for a while showed old news and now shows nothing at all. The sidebars need to disappear, or at least allow me to scroll comfortably while in landscape mode. I'd expect the images I tap on to be bigger when they focus up, but they're always tiny. We haven't seen a release in months. It's not a sprint, AOL, it's a marathon.
NOT WORTH the FIVE STARS
I had to give this five stars so they wouldn't keep review from being seen. - I got the app, tried to use it, but about five seconds after I open ANY article, there's audio from ads in the background, think it's actually video, but there's no way to shut it off. Glad it's free; certainly not worth anything. FIX THE APP!
