What's New in Version 1.2.2
- Various bug fixes as reported by users
I'm not interested!!!
Please stop attempting to pressure me into downloading your [cr]app onto my iPad every time I attempt to read an article on your website! I already have way too many [cr]apps on my iPad as it is! Why do I supposedly ever need more of them? All that I want, or need is to read your website articles via my web browser! Attempting to pressure me into downloading your [cr]app is only serving to really infuriate me!!!
P.S. Forcing me to first download, and install this [cr]app before writing this review is total B.S. because I then immediately uninstalled it!
Good but not great
The Root is generally a good publication, that provides excerpts that link you to the home of full articles. My main issue is,I would prefer a non banner ad version, and would be happy to pay for it.
Love the idea
But the app needs to have an update to fix some major bug issues. I can't log into my FB account or use Instapaper without getting an error message.
