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!!!
Love it 1/5
You let me down yet again Matt. Why do I need to switch between columns???? How about a simple straight down list, it's 2017, it can't be that hard.
Too little too late 1/5
First if all, the app is slow. Secondly, the content organization is lazy. They should have simply stacked all the columns on top of each other for one seamless scroll. If you're going to make me click a button, make it for all the unnecessary links that are listed below each column.
Cmon drudge, for real?! Pop up ads everywhere in the app...
Real User - Good App 5/5
This is better than the unofficial app. The pop-ups are not Drudge related, they are due only to the linked sites. Crazy libtards leaving fake reviews. The app is a good switch, took you long enough Matt. Thanks for all you.
News, not games for kids and incessant page hijacks. 1/5
By Chi Guy
I come to Drudge for news; not to get diverted to a site trying to sell me a bunch of animated kids games. REALLLY? Now effective June 12th your treated to unending page hijacks by a "free iPhone 7s ( which does not exist yet) ad. By far the worst app in the planet.
Ads have runed this app 1/5
No Amazon or Walmart I don't want to fill out your survey. This app used to be great now you just get moved over the main page without touching anything
Oh the pop ups. So. Many. Pop ups. 1/5
Stop telling me "No wifi connection " 2/5
The app generally works okay for me, my ad blocker keeps any pop-up ads at bay. But I get a different pop-up that says I don't have a wifi connection, while indeed I almost always have one. It takes three rounds of canceling the pop-up for it to go away. I've been tolerating it for too long and now you guys need to fix it.
Freeze Up 2/5
What is going on with this particular Drudge App?? I've been a Drudge fan for years. For whatever reason, this one has started to 'freeze up' right in the middle of reading an article....can't scroll, can't switch to something else---have to turn off my IPad & reboot to get it to work correctly again. Then a few mins later, does it again. Other apps, drudge included, do not do this. Fix it please!
Pop up ads are amazing 5/5
By janice murphree
I don't have to read the Drudge Report how refreshing for this progressive ! Too funny!
Used To Really Like Thus App Until... 1/5
By Conserve A Tiv
POP UP ADS!!! They are everywhere. Did Drudge finally sell out? Terrible. I'm looking for an alternative news aggregate now. Your ratings is abiyt to plunge.
Too many pop up adds 1/5
I have been a longtime fan of the Drudge website. So I was happy to see a phone app. I have used the app for one day, today I deleted the app. Pop up adds made it nearly impossible to read articles. I will continue to use the website instead.
Would Give it 5 Stars but.... 2/5
When you can actually read an article, it's a great news source. It's nearly impossible to read one. Many of the articles you only get to read some of it To read the rest of the article you have to subscribe to and pay for the app, ex Washington Post etc. PLUS So many pop-up ads, and they don't go away. They take up the entire screen. Hit the close or x button, it will just repeat the ad. I realized I spend more time trying to close ads than reading the articles. Plus, beside the pop-up ads,each article is followed by rediculous ads as news worthy or entertainment gossip stories...selling diet products. Needless to say....I'm removing it.
Worse than android 1/5
By Horse jumper 1111
This app provides Drudge ok but with several fatal flaws. The advertisements are often gross and can't be turned off. Tired of looking at same pimple closeup ad on every Drudge first page. Another flaw is some links steal the window and show ads, never allowing the reader to get to the article. Also hate that I can't resize the links or headlines.
News doesn't load when clicking the links 1/5
News doesn't load when clicking on the links sometimes
Ads and crashes 2/5
The amount of pop up ads and crashes are starting to outweigh content unfortunately!
You idiots think I want to see some disgusting close up of someone's acne in an ad??? Get a clue and filter your ads. Geez.
Can't read full articles without subscription. Advertisement videos pop up with annoying frequency. 1/5
It's no longer function.
Not worth the effort 1/5
So full of pop up ads and articles you can't read unless you subscribe to various newspapers it's frustrating. Deleting it now.
Too many popup ads, shame 1/5
By Interface is clunky and bad
I love Drudge. I'd even be willing to pay a couple bucks for an app with no ads, but this is just too much. Can't even read articles half the time.
Crashes! Crashes! Crashes! 1/5
Less and less, the Drudge Report is my go to news source. Why? Many times I'll be reading a story, when, bam!, it crashes. Don't know why unless it's because of the frequent and annoying pop-up ads. Drudge used to have an ap called "Drudge Plus" which contained a "Readability Optimized" option. No pop-ups, just text, and no crashes. Bring it back. Update four months later: Crashes continue, and they are frequent. Something must be done if the Drudge Report wants to keep its readers. Take away one star! Update: I would give it zero stars if I could. Goodbye Drudge😠
Complete Crap 1/5
By Poiema Photoworks
Can't even believe this is on the Apple App Store. Full-on crap.
