What’s with the distracting pop up adds? 1/5
The latest mobile version is stricken with pop ups to the point that it’s become unusable and a waste of time. Great source of news, but too much effort to use.
Ads have made it unusable 1/5
This was once a great app, the only Drudge app that allowed easy scrolling of the desktop page. But greed has killed it. Every article has sometimes TWO or THREE Ads to contend with. Not worth it anymore.
Too many pop ups 1/5
One after another, uncommanded pop ups that force you to quit and reopen the app unless you want to be directed to sometimes suspicious sites, the App Store to download something you didn’t ask for or a video pop up with no content. Way too buggy. It’s been this way for years. Surprising drudge has not fixed this. It’s out of control.
Nice App 5/5
Not sure what’s up with all the negative reviews. Haven’t experienced any of the issues people are claiming. Assuming they are the typical liberal sheep that think giving a negative review will hurt Drudge. App actually works great. Just like a miniature version of website. Can switch columns at top. Really convenient.
Just clickbait and fake news. Sad!
Horrible. Drudge should do better with his mobile site. Seriously. Most of the links on mobile are impossible to read due to the ad content or pop up nonsense that many times make you have to shut down completely and restart. I love Drudge, but hate this App.
Deadly pop ups 1/5
Pop ups deadly. No way to read anything today. Worse than usual. Completely useless. Downright irritating. Sad.
Pop up screen blackouts 1/5
By Az Pete
I’m sick of those pop up ads that gradually black out the screen when you’re trying to read an article and there’s no way to close it. Please fix it Drudge.
Too many pop ups! 1/5
Can’t read an article without ads and redirects blocking you. Only way I can read Drudge is on a computer. As a phone app this one is a loser.
Terrible App 1/5
Terrible app for two reasons
1. Very Aggressive ads which are in your face constantly and ads that are shill ads. Hate the WSJ articles because they are really TEASER articles/ads to subscribe to WSJ if you want to read the article Drudge has linked too.
2. Drudge now has begun catering in a big way to corrupt “news” stories from Yahoo and NY Times and the AP. Most of the “news” he posts from all the lib media outlets are editorial hit pieces disguised as reporting. Follow the money and you will see Drudge is a sell out.
Good source for news 5/5
Good source for news.
Use to be a killer app! 1/5
This app has so many adds and pop ups, you can't read the articles without being redirected 50 times!!! So annoying, will get my news elsewhere!!! Guess Matt is trying to make as much money as possible off these annoying pop ups, enjoy the wealth my friend, cause I can't tolerate the redirecting.
Ads make this app unusable 1/5
Ads make this app unusable, stories open and are then hidden under ads which are almost impossible to close. These ads are in addition to the ads which are placed every fee sentences in the main story.
I will be deleting this app as soon as I finish writing this review.
Terrible app. 1/5
Full of ads or can’t get to news sometimes locks up unless you click.
I’ve deleted and won’t return.
OMG Ads 1/5
You simply cannot click any link without being bombarded by ads. Holy crap. App is unusable. Uninstall.
Ads and pop ups 1/5
This app is terrible. Nothing but pop ups and spam advertising when trying to read articles.
Terrible App 1/5
The app constantly has pop ups and ads and today it was hijacked with porn!!
Crashes Often 2/5
Crashes often when clicking on news stories and on ads.
Horrible app 1/5
Poor formatting, buggy. Not worth the effort of downloading. Love the website, app is poorly executed.
Audio on videos NOT working! 1/5
If I click a link to an article on drudge the audio for that video does NOT work. Please fix! (I'm running the latest iOS, 10.3.3.
Only source for real news 5/5
By Deplorable Jeremy
This is the only source for real news. Unfortunately, Apple and google will do everything in their power to suppress drudge. Hopefully they continue the fight
Needs revision for IOS 11 2/5
This app needs and overhaul for ios11. Banner is all jacked up now.
It's just Drudge, that simple 5/5
By The Moehles
If you check Drudge, spare yourself some time and downloads this app. Faster than a homepage, streamlined for mobile viewing.
Annoying pop ups. 1/5
I'm deleting this app. The nonstop pop up ads make it unusable.
App for ads and pop-up videos 1/5
The App Store always opens and tries to get you to download apps. Videos are constantly popping up while trying to read. What garbage.
Ads, popup's pesky videos 4/5
Why is it that we have to put up with all the above in order to read one of the best if not the best news coverage that's available?
If I was Drudge I would be doing something about all the embedded dishonest like walking through a field just to read latest " honest and most accurate " news... with a BIG- HINT, HINT DRUDGE ( ???? ) thanks for only the best news part , really does anyone care anymore ? So sad, all about $$$$& huh?
SAD DAY AMERICA...! When reading the best news is like walking through a mine field traps of all sorts of pesky apps, pure CRAP! Lots of them either take over your smart phone or actually locks/shuts you out of reading drudge news...! Often I even have to power down my phone to just recover to use my phone. So, the only way that I can read drudge is don't finger tap 80 % of what I wanted to read, to reduce threat level of being attacked. Daily after reading drudge , I dump it by removing/deleting app until tomorrow. Only App that I actually/honestly am more excited of my daily deleting it than I am getting/downloading it . SAD DAY AMERICA, REALLY!
Solid app 5/5
Works just like the website and not many ads
Buggy and useless. 1/5
Drudge used to be a good place for news aggregation. Seems like he's been throwing a hissy fit for the past 2 months.
If I wanted to only see CNN, WaPo and NYT propaganda then I'd visit their sites. I'm uninstalling this garbage.
A four heading app? 1/5
By Mick Langley
This has to be one of the worst designed apps I've ever seen. Tap on one of four headline options to experience scrolling through one of four different headline columns? Really, really bad. But I'm sure Drudge gets his clicks and refreshes because fans will put up with this terrible app to see Drudge headline aggregator. Haven't deleted yet because the other app was basically as bad. Good job Drudge
Garbage app 1/5
By Mediocre Mike
Opening this app for yourself and see how counterintuitive it can get. Absolute crap.
Drudge is great, the app is not 2/5
The app has been crashing for months. It happens quite often.
The developers need to show some ambition and get their act together or Matt should offer the account to someone else. Quite lame.
This app is not worthy of a site as important as The Drudge Report.
Taken over by deep state. Misinfo news 1/5
Fan of drudge for 2 years. I've seen the pattern. Either he has flipped or been compromised by big brother. Deep state drudge, you're gone.
PLEASE FIRE YOUR WEB TEAM, DISGRACEFUL 1/5
Such a great web site has hired a web team that disgraces the name. Pure spam crap. Don't bother with this app, but go to DrudgeReport using Safari or some legitimate browser. This app serves WHOLE PAGE ADS THAT CONTAINS SIX ADS ON THE PAGE, that then left audio playing in the background whenever I re-opened the app, THE FINAL STRAW THAT CAUSED ME TO DELETE THE APP. Loyal fans deserve better than this. I actually thought spammers were hijacking the name. I am not going to tolerate this spam spitball any longer. the aggravation of extreme spam is no longer tolerable, worst app on the web.
GO DRUDGE, BUT FIRE YOUR WEB TEAM!
Keep getting Spam 1/5
Almost every time I open this I get some junk opening about winning something from someone. I am tired of this and will no longer use this app and the scam ads that come with it.
Updated July 15/ Love it now! 5/5
By Mark Miclette
Drudge has been my 'go to' since he got started. That said, I'm spending too much time having to refresh the app to escape the endless spam that takes over my phone's browser. I understand ads are necessary, but spam only pays for itself for about three user sessions, then they are gone forever. Deleting this app after I write this. C'mon Matt! Still love your work, but this app spam is pure evil.
Update: Tried app again for a week and now happy to see spam ads gone. Changing to Five Stars. Thanks Matt!
I like this app. Easy to use.
ad overload 2/5
every article comes with 5 ads, every ad has another ad. after you delete one 2 more pop up. then finally after you get the 35 ads deleted the next thing u see is you have to make an account with the wall street journal or someone else to be able to read the article. drudge used to be great but now its a SELL OUT!!!!! care about your customers and maybe i will download ypur app again but until you do fix it i hope you site crash and burns
Terrible full of adds 1/5
Full of add wear, opens 3rd party apps, popups all over. I deleted it after many years of use.
Great content, but HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE App 1/5
I love reading Drudge - but this app doesn't make it easy.
I've had a much better experience with the native Safari browser instead of this app. With the app, I get inundated with ads. I know people will be quick to say that the sites post the ads. Fair enough, BUT I don't get the same experience with Safari. Not sure if the ads are baked into the App or if Safari is more intelligent at suppressing them.
Another quirk? Click on the 2nd or 3rd column, then turn your phone sideways. It automatically goes back to the first column, which is annoying. If I'm on a column, I'd like to be able to view it and stay on it until I click to another column.
The app also freezes on me. I used this app long ago and drifted to another app, only for the other app to be shut down. This one is going to the trash now. I will check the ratings somewhere down the line to see if it warrants another install, but for now -- Safari it is.
I like the app 2/5
And I use it everyday. The only thing I don't like about it are some of the ad choices.
Hello! I get it. Ellen Degenerate has apparently quit munching carpet and started polishing knobs. I didn't like her before and I'm not starting now. Can you please find some "wholesome" ads that would appeal to a broader audience?
Something changed- not for the good 1/5
By Big Kahuna DFW
I used to love this app- it was the first go to app in the morning. Just in the last month something changed for the worse and it has become: slow, unstable, pop-up's everywhere and freezes so often I have to close the app and reopen. Sad to loose a great resource.
Unwelcome pop-up ads. 1/5
By Annie Callahan
Almost seems like phone is being hijacked at times by ads that claim you've won a $1000 prize or whatever. Yeah right. No other app I have does this. Therefore I deleted it.
Get ready for that 1995 internet experience 1/5
Full of annoying pop ups and redirects to scamy contests. Build a paid app so we can dump all this crap
One stars are from snowflakes 5/5
App works great!!!! Isn't it funny how people hate Drudge Report? All they do is link to other people's articles... yet somehow the snowflakes hate it.. the link to CNN for christs sake... anyways great app
it's a crappy web browser made into an "app" 1/5
Nothing more than a cheap quality web browser that points to the drudge site and is more unintuitive than Safari or Chrome. Take the extra step of using your mobile browser so you don't have to deal with his piece of junk and pop up ads. It's 2017, this project is about as successful as using a tennis racket to play baseball. I don't get how creating an app that reads 3 columns of news headlines on a website could have failed so miserably. Even more surprising is that Drudge still promotes this app on their site, it's pure ignorance to the audience. Read the reviews Matt... you're losing readers.
One of my primary go to news apps 4/5
Would like for there to be an ability to provide input/responses on particular articles, so there is more give and take on breaking news....
SO GOOD!!!! 5/5
This is the Drudge app you've been waiting for.
There are more than a few trolls reviewing the app here which is unfortunate. But I can tell that if you read Drudge on the go like me you'll appreciate this app very much.
By lucky pete51
Hey soon as I open the app it redirects me to the Apple Store and drudge report is totally useless.
A Joke 2/5
Takes 3-6- refreshes to convince this app I have a wi-Fi connection. Boots me out occasionally also Bah!
App runs great and scrolls smoothly.
Don't believe some of these fake reviews from these loser lefties...they r just trying to scare u away from getting the app with this "ad pop up" nonsense! because they don't want Drudge to rule the news apps like he does with his site.
Get this app if u r a Drudge fan bcuz it works great.
No pop-up ads!!!
