Ratings and Reviews
Downhill for a long time
Today I deleted the app that has been a part of my daily routine for over 5 years. Unfortunately, over the last year Cracked’s article have become a shell of their former glory. I have struggled to think of a single truly thought provoking or interesting article that I have read from Cracked in the last 6 months. Most of their articles are either a set of 20+ pictures that make either completely bland or blatantly biased observations.
The site as a whole is a far cry from the site I used to love for it’s hilarious and balanced articles on fascinating topics.
The actual app itself is serviceable and putting up with the occasional glitch seems much better than paying for the reader.
It’s tough to read articles on this. Characters and text glitch out. Captions never appear correctly and overlap into one line. The top of the display glitches out into a black bar that blocks the time on iPhone X, and the left swipe gesture (which is back in most other apps) opens a menu. The back arrow is sometimes inaccessible.
That being said the interface looks slick and was probably really nice closer to release. I would pay money for this (like, $3?) since I love to read Cracked, but having to deal with these issues is really discouraging.
There is zero advantage to using this app over your device’s browser. Photo captions are unreadable because the text is superimposed over itself on the screen. The comment editor is completely unusable from the app (no cursor, spell check capability, etc).
Meanwhile, if I use Chrome or Safari for iOS, the article layout is identical to the app, but the comment editor actually looks and works the way it’s supposed to, and I can actually read the photo captions. This has been the state of things for over a year.
