Still crashes when loading articles
Time Mobile has some of the very best in-depth (for mobile) articles out there, once you can get to an article long enough to read it. The app crashes mainly when loading articles. Some articles crash 5 times before a successful load. Other articles crash only one time before a successful load. Rarely do I find an article which loads clean an the first load.
I have my own special tricks which seem to improve my chances of loading clean: 1) don't do things too quickly, instead give the app time to load the article. 2) if possible, slowly scroll past the image/media at the beginning of the article -- that seems to be the biggest reason for crashing.
These steps only increase my chances of reading an article a slight amount, but I at least feel like I have better chances. Once an article is fully loaded, however, the chances are very high that you can read the entire article.
Is all of this worth it? Yes! Maybe they are crashing the app on purpose to increase the mystique of the articles - something that you have to work for :-)
I do hope they get this fixed!
A very good app worthy of the TIME name. Provides interesting articles day to day, provides Top Ten lists, most popular articles, customization of menu layout according to what topics you are interested in, save articles for later feature as well as more. The only downside is won't connect to other articles when link is provided in previous article.
Time app works fine - no crashing
Wish it would mirror latest magazine. Would give it a 5 if it did that. Newsfeed good. Not crashing on IPhone 4. Do not know why others have problem or I do not.
