This is the first app I open to check political news every day. But it is HuffPost that make me choose it first—NOT the performance of the app. No matter the number of updates, I have given up on having a pleasant experience with this app. It is always buggy; open an article and sit and wait for it to load, then wait again to move down the page. Be carful when scrolling, because there are so many links you will find it difficult to find a place to scroll from without being taken to another page because you touched a link. Oh yeah—those respond really fast, unlike the link to the article you wanted to read. Once you have touched that link mistakenly, you are in for a real treat—waiting and waiting and waiting for it to load so you can hit the “back” button and wait some more. More often than not, the back button is so unresponsive that it takes several times to get it to work, and since it has now caught up, it takes you back to the home page of the app, where you get to start all over! I generally end up giving up at that point and going somewhere else. Too bad, but since I really like HuffPost political news, I will stupidly try again later. Or maybe I will find another app that doesn’t frustrate me nearly every time I use it.
** update 10/26 Updated app today- links don’t appear to be sensitive anymore. Thanks for the fix. Back to 5 stars unless change happens This is pretty ridiculous at this point. I understand the updates to IOS can mess with an app- but this is a completely useless app at this point. And the fact that such a large company has not fixed this is getting to the point where I’m not willing to use the app anymore. I changed my touch accommodations- adding more and more and more time to the touch duration, messing with the settings and you know what it fixed? Nothing. Literally nothing. And no other app on my phone does anything like this. Literally none. Fix the app. Honestly there just isn’t an excuse to blame the IOS and tell people to change their settings when it’s only happening to THIS app. Super disappointed. No need to copy and paste your answer to everyone else here. I don’t need your IRONICALLY unlinkable links about settings you guys keep copying and pasting. Face palm to this entire thing.
Apple is claiming that this is an app specific problem with the new iOS, so I’m posting about it here as instructed on the Apple website. It is virtually impossible to scroll through stories on the app without the slightest touch on a hyperlink causing a new window to open, be it internal links in the article text, ads, or author credits. The density of links on the page makes it very difficult to scroll through an entire story without hitting one or two of them. This was not an issue until the latest update and I’ve been using this app for years across multiple devices. Update - I’m looking at the HuffPost boilerplate response to this problem and it references a post on the Apple help site that specifically states that it’s an app specific problem, directly contradicting the huffpost position that it can be fixed by adjusting touch sensitivity settings. In fact, the post referenced makes zero mention of changing those settings and provides no instruction on how to do so.
I’m a Democrat and like this organization but even to me this news source is very slanted to the left. I understand that and oftentimes look elsewhere for more non biased news. What bothers me most about the news stories presented on this app is the fact that the majority of the news articles are underlined. When I say that I mean that as you are reading an article a phrase, a name, a comment, a place is underlined. If you press on the phrase the name the comment or the place you are redirected to another page giving you more information or another news article pertaining to that particular item. As you scroll thru an article while you read it, it’s almost impossible not to click on one of these underlined areas because so much of the article is underlined. I am CONSTANTLY having to close out of the new page that opens up to get back to the original article I am trying to read. It’s a pain in the ***.
Thanks for your latest version which stops updating periodically forcing me to delete and reinstall it. Since I keep skipping enabling useless alerts and refusing to subscribe to your “plus” service I wonder if this is blatantly deliberate to force going through the process of skipping alerts and paying for “plus” as a hostage tactic to be able to use the app without doing this over and over. Keep piling on these “bugs”, keep making news updates less frequent, continue to gut and scale back your newsroom sending the best people running for the exits and see where that all gets you in the end. Arianna, I hope Verizon paid you well for the privilege of tearing down your years of great work at HuffPost and dragging your name and reputation through the mud. I sincerely hope it was worth it ***Update***...Here’s a fun thing I figured out- the reason the app won’t refresh and update is because they apparently don’t like users having a vpn! Shut that off and..... magic! Works great! Conclusion, pinheads at Verizon or whatever cute name they came up with to buy HuffPost just wants to collect all your data and spy on your surfing habits
