Dead Links Abound

UPDATED 6.4.15: So I just updated to the iPhone 6 (from 4) and really hoped some issues with the Cracked app would be solved. Yes, it loads faster, no problem with photos, no crashes. But still there are dead links!! I can't understand how such a simple thing can persist for months! At least one article a day will not load from the features across the top, and the whole section that is the last one on the homepage doesn't load when tapped, ever. Fix it please!

I love Cracked and read it daily but the app has some issues. Lately the biggest problem is dead links!! Every day there is at least one article of the six featured ones that I can't open. It also doesn't show up in columnists, articles, nowhere! I've also had problems with pictures not loading. Last, the Photoplastys are pretty much broken in the latest version. The pics are tiny. When you enlarge them, they bounce around the screen and don't stay enlarged, and you can't move the enlarged image to view the whole thing.

There's just this one thing

Not to say that other reviewers are lying (I assume they tell the truth as they experience it) but I can't recall ever having an issue with this app crashing on me. If an article taking a while to load, or images are slow to appear, it's nearly always a result of poor signal. Certainly not the fault of Cracked.

However, in recent weeks I have noticed more and more that article links on the front page are dead. Example; Ken Jennings article showed up in front page. Couldn't tap it, and couldn't find it in articles page either. As far as the app is concerned, that article is forever lost to me. If this is a new way to entice people to buy the ad-free version of the app, this should be labeled as such. If it's a glitch I will patiently await the update to remedy it, but will weep pathetic, pathetic tears in the meantime.


I don't mind the app at all. It's actually very easy to use and I like that the font adjusts to the fact that I have larger font turned on, for my phone. However, I have the persistent issue where I can't open articles... I can tap the screen as many times as I want and wait as long as I like, but nothing happens. The app opens fine and loads quickly, but if I try to tap on an article to read it, either on the front page or in a category, nothing happens. I've always had this problem time to time, but now I'm having every time I open the app, and it's very frustrating. I hope you can resolve this issue because I do like using it~
