Needs an overhaul

I used to love this reader app but it doesn't feel like it's had any updates in five years. The UI is outdated, Photoplasties are terrible (full titles are rarely visible, screen rotation can obscure the image, even when rotated back, animated gifs are just still images, etc.), main articles no longer have any preview text (originally, they would have a sentence or two under the title to entice readers; now that empty space is pointless and also obscures titles), Quick Fixes hasn't updated in nearly a year (to be fair, that could just be me, maybe it doesn't update unless you check it while connected to wifi)...

This app could be so much better if the Cracked team would show they care at all.

Good app for a great site

The reader actually makes reading the articles easier than on the website. The same cannot be said for the Photoplasties, of course, but that is a limitation of the screen size and not of the application.

My only real complaint, and it is a minor one, is that if you wait too long, the app will drop you back to the home page without remembering where you had left off.

Like I said, a minor hassle that doesn't impact usage all that much.

Worth every penny

Great app and great articles. The only thing I would change is to have it preload like 5 stories so when I don't have wifi (like in the subway) I have something to read. I too experience the crashing which generally requires you close the app completely and then reboot. Annoying but you get what you pay for. I've never seen a pop up using this app.
