Customer Reviews

Why hast thou forsaken me?!

If, like me, you are also a Cracked addict, avoid this app. It will send you straight into withdrawal. On a good day, it's merely difficult to use; most of the time, it barely qualifies as functional. Navigating through the articles is cumbersome, ads are intrusive, external links open into the app, often rendering them unusable, and the text on many photoplasty tiles is unreadably small, to name but a few of the issues plaguing the layout.

Of course, you may never even have the opportunity to be utterly underwhelmed by this sorry excuse for a reader, thanks to the endless cycle of freezes and crashes. It's so bad, I can't help but wonder if the product is, in fact, a hilarious prank perpetrated by the clowns over at Cracked upon their loyal reader base. HAHA GUYS, YA GOT US. Now please, direct me to the real reader so I can continue rotting my brain with your delightful nonsense.

(And yes, I am aware that there is a paid version of this app that eliminates ads, but from the reviews, it doesn't appear to be any more stable.)

Great content :D App is better than previous version, but still freezes phone :(

Video links are no longer dead :)
Do the articles randomly freeze up anybody else's iPhone6? When is freezes, I can't switch to another app, unlock my phone, etc. close out, turn off your phone etc. The freezes are shorter than with the previous version.
Keep working on it :)
Just use the mobile site instead. I like the new layout and the ability to sync my favorite articles with the website.

So much better... But not perfect

I've been using this app everyday for 5 years and I'm so happy they've finally revamped it. I don't have problems with it crashing anymore and it's very responsive and fast.
I still can't click on some articles, like personal experience articles the day they are published. But overall it made me really happy that they spent time truly updating it finally. Now just bring Christina H back full time and the world will be right again.
