What's New in Version 5.0.1
Greatly preferred the old app
This new app doesn't appear to work in landscape mode, which is the mode that I typically use on my iPad. The old app worked in landscape.
The old app offered a list of multiple headlines to choose from, this app has a few stories displayed under the "Top News" category with large, half-screen-filling pictures accompanying the headlines -- I much prefer seeing the headlines listed out for access at a glance, as opposed to being forced to scroll through 5 or 6 giant graphics on a few items.
Please return the old format. This one -- I don't care for.
Please fix this!!!
Like all things with Fox news, they are going to ignore all the bad feedback and just continue to screw up the app. This app is horrible. The old one wasn't that bad and was at least usable. You could pull up more than 10 stories on it and see older ones, but you can't do it with this one.
I doubt they'll fix it, but I really hope they do. The good news is there are plenty of other news apps out there.
Not loving this new version
Update: App keeps crashing while I try to read a story. Hate it.
Original: I don't like the format, pictures are fine, but I want a list of stories to click on where I can view multiple stories at once. Not scroll through all the pictures.
Also, I tried sharing a story and used your Facebook/Twitter icons and it only shared the photo from the story and not the story. I may delete. Undecided.
