Been a solid app but finally fell apart 1/5
Been using flip board for years for news, posts, and events. It was a solid app for a long time on my iPhone or iPad. However a few months back they made some changes and now I can no longer individually select people or groups I'm following to see their content. I can only view in mass post order and that pretty much broke everything for me. The entire reason I enjoyed the app was because I could have everything in one spot but still individualize when desired.
What would I do if Flipper went away? Update and reply 4/5
Most used app on my iDevices after Airmail and iMessage. No complaint other than I CANNOT delete an article while I edit a magazine though I see the Delete button in red.
+ a little customization (color, fonts) would be great.
Replying to your message :
It was in my iPad where the article will not delete, and I have been editing / deleting as you describe.
Update is horrible 1/5
This app was so special when it first came out. Now It's horrible. Really horrible.
great great great
Video Ads Annoying 3/5
I've really been enjoying Flipboard daily for several years to keep up with the national news; however, I become annoyed and don't have the time to view a 30-second ad before being able to watch the video news clip. Before I watch the ad, I'll flip to something else to read. Annoying but not a "deal breaker."
Flooded with BoA Adverts 1/5
I'm done with this crap.
I've had enough of Bank of America sponsored pages constantly interrupting my feeds which I am unable to mute.
The developers' infantile greed has made this a useless application. Bye.
Deleting this app now as it's become completely useless. It doesn't learn, no matter how many times you indicate your likes and dislikes. And for most topics I get a far better selection of articles by using Google to look up the topic and then clicking the News tab.
Twitter lists feed missing. 2/5
No feed of twitter list of followers.
Posts not showing up 1/5
I've contacted Flipboard about this issue, but no fix yet. I can see portions of posts from within my Notifications area but they do not appear in the actual comments section of the article.
A great many users are experiencing this and it's frustrating. I uninstalled and reinstalled to no effect.
PLEASE fix this!!
Update May 12, 2017
Now, I can see posts from the Notifications area, but when I go to the actual article NO posts are showing up. And when I try to post a comment, I get a notice that says Error Posting Reply.
Update June 8 - still nothing fixed. Posts from my iPhone are not visible from my iPad EVERYONE seems to have the problems mentioned earlier above. They say they're working on it, but it I don't see any results. Very disappointing and aggravating.
July 9- it's worse now. Some posts are not showing up at all in notifications while other posts are duplicated. Certain comment sections are even shut down. I now limit my time on this app.
July 15 - Now the notification section isn't working. No new posts have been shown for the last 2-3 days. Jesus, what else will go wrong?
The good & bad 3/5
By Redneck Guido
-wide variety of subjects and media choices
-fairly easy to use and navigate
-too many emails! ENOUGH ALREADY! It's to a level where one is at the point of deciding to live with the voluminous amount of emails, or delete to app all together.
-font too small and unable to change other than keep small or choose huge. (Only going on a post I have read; haven't found the way to do it!) Something in the middle would be nice.
-can't change view from profile to landscape. If you can, they must be binding the option.
Why not able to mute CNN? 1/5
CNN news is so selective and bias and I cannot stand reading it. I tried to mute it. The app said its muted and will not show but it's still there. Annoying! I can mute all other channels.
Is this a bug or by design?
Pop ups 1/5
Pop-up are ruining the function of this app. And flipping is not the flipping same anymore. Go back to before. It's so much more harder to find and discover new stuff. Boring. Hardly ever open it. Maybe once a month. Ure lucky I have the largest GB iPhone available
FacistBoard is the buggiest app! 1/5
Broken notifications, disappearing text, and people can't see your comments.
Incredibly toxic and extremely hostile majority liberal community. Almost all threads involved with politics degenerate into very nasty fights. Reporting and bans are frequent... so either sing the liberal progressive fascist tune or risk losing account privileges to anyone that doesn't like what you're saying!
Unhelpful and poorly trained feedback team. They may as well use bots because these guys can't help you with anything.
And for the last few months, despite constantly contacting them about my technical issues I haven't gotten a single reply.
Don't let the "Developer Response" fool you. They still won't reply to my messages. They just censor you and hope you don't notice.
Good App 2/5
Used to be a good app. Now it's a Left wing propaganda machine. No regard given to anything akin to balance or the truth. I've now deleted it from my phone.
Side Loading Ads Too Intrusive 2/5
Being a relatively long time Flipboard fan, I'm not happy about the the ads that float in from the left hand side of the screen. They shrink the readable area and require a physical swipe at them to get them out of view. In general, a nuisance that degrades the Flipboard experience I've become accustomed to over the years.
The worst 1/5
By Just doesn't 't work
This app is the coolest set up but the worse in actually reading. Every article reloads dozens of times just to read it once! It never fails! No mater where I m hooked up on line, it just constantly reloads the articles and I always give up half way in between! I wish they would get their act together!
not efficient 5/5
1 article per view is not efficient
too many customise option in settings
Very intuitive and to the point 5/5
I couldn't find a better app tailed and focused as Flipboard. I saddened me to see such a sleek and stylish app with low rating, so I decided to chime in and talk about what drew me to it. The bottom line is that the content is rich and you get to choose how much information you can process a day.
Only Liberal News 1/5
All article sources are liberal, even the so call Conservative choices are completely liberal. They do not take in consideration the opposing arguments what so ever. How are you supposed to trust this apps sources if they are all so one sided.
Great app 4/5
It is a good looking and useful app BUT the non-stop emails are driving me crazy and I can't figure out how to make it stop!
Edit: develops contacted directly to fix the issue. Thanks, guys!
Back too crap am done! 1/5
Trying to Find news on my hometown sports teams is a lesson in futility. All the stories are from 2013. Nothing recent! 4yr old sports news are you kidding me?!?!? Its a rarity in baseball for a player too hit a home run in their 1st at bat. Flipboard hit a grand slam with their original User interface in their 1st at bat only to say nope we want too strikeout.
I have no idea what you are attempting here with magazines, following, tagging topics hashtags, its a ridiculous UI. The old way was so much better than this discombobulated mess.
Flipboard you took a very clean simple UI and turned into a huge mess. Like google facebook Apple all news apps are horrible.
What is the end game with this UI?
What is the mindset here?
Organization? how many different ways do people need too find a news story or topic?
You hit a grand slam with your original flipboard UI only too get called out for running the bases backwards.
Was great. Now ads ads ads .... crash 1/5
By Dave SD
Was great. Now ads ads ads .... crash. Some good things just aren't meant to last. Goodbye Flipboard
Money grubbing article sources 1/5
I used to love this app... but now more than 80% of the articles interrupt your reading experience with random pop up ads.
Massive Ad Overload, Frequent Crashes 1/5
Was a great news app, but the incredible number of add in each story make it almost impossible to read. It's difficult to find anywhere you can put your finger to scroll down without loading an ad and losing your story.
Often, stories won't load at all, but simply crash the app due to the number of adds.
What was a five star app is now a one.
Going downhill 2/5
This was once my favorite news app. But after the recent update, the headlines in several sections do not display properly. And without the headline you have no idea what the article is about.
Edit 2: deep link unsubscribe stared working. Found out that never signing up for promo emails means "sign up for all 6 promo mailing lists". Glad that flipboard values the customers wishes so much. Still randomly shuffles articles during normal use.
Edit 1: aggregate feed is still there, but it randomly shuffles while viewing, literally the order of posts and current "scroll" position are randomized. Also the unsubscribe link in their spam emails deep link back to the app and then do nothing lol
Original: Between the aggravating popups that are mostly useless and the lack of my old aggregate feed, this app is now useless.
LOTS of background app activity 2/5
Used this app for years. Battery life has been noticeably affected on my phone as of late. System settings show lots of background activity for Flipboard. However, the app does not support turning this off.
Dropping flipboard 1/5
By joe lesco
Slanted waaay left. Multiple anti-Trump articles. How about cnn lies, Russian collusion fake news etc.? Few if any positive conservative articles. If they do appear they're buried in later articles. Half the people that read this junk ( or used to) are conservatives! Balance it out and maybe i'll come back.
Not a good update so far 2/5
The app unaccountably shuts off music, presumably so that ads from the pages can play - I never accepted this as a feature and there seems to. E no way to shut it off. I dropped it to 2 stars and seriously considered 1. Between this and the frequent misbehavior of ads I've just about had it with Flipboard
The latest leaves ads even more all-encompassing and annoying and more likely to crash a page than ever. I'm opening Digg instead more often than before. Hope they fix it, really bad
The ability to control the sound by this app is unacceptable. I scroll past a video and it instantly blares out speaking, without being clicked.
I've had it, I'm deleting this app🚀👎🏻
Screen keeps getting hijacked 1/5
Something changed recently in this app. When you're reading an article the screen occasionally gets hijacked by a full screen ad and there doesn't seem a way of escape. Very frustrating!!!
Great overall, hides the time 3/5
I have used Flipboard for a while. It's a nice UI, but I hate when apps hide the time.
Brilliant App 4/5
Great app, my only place for news.
Must have app for news 5/5
This really is the only news app you need.

Number one source for my news 5/5
By Sparkle Plenty 2
And when I say MY news I mean all that is important to me! Not what the media sources dictate that should be important to me!
Great News App 5/5
You select what you want to see, so there should be no complaints about its content.
Love it 5/5
Great source for reading
Use it daily 5/5
Love the app
Informative awesome app 5/5
Flipboard is my go to app for my news.
My favorite news app! 5/5
I've been using Flipboard for over six years now. It's a great way to keep current on news, sports and health issues (to name just a few). I read articles on Flipboard multiple times a day!
Best way to keep up with the news! 5/5
Best UI of it's kind.
The perfect news service! 5/5
Flipboard is now my primary source for news. Truly excellent!
Great news app 5/5
This is one of the best News apps I have ever seen every single newspaper of any reporting is in here and it lets you read them all. This gives you true balance news because you can read the liberal and conservative views o each story. This allows you to get a balance idea of real story
I love this app! 5/5
By Science & NFL fan
This is my most used app, my primary news source and my favorite reading pastime. I have never had a problem with it.
I love this app. I pick the news and topics that interest me. Flipboard delivers exactly what I want to read.
Great App 5/5
Lots to love 5/5
I've been reading news with this app for several years. I love the variety and the ease of use.
Great summary of a wide variety of sources 5/5
Easy to use and does good job of identifying other potential areas of interest.
Cant share browser sites to my magazines 3/5
An excellent news app. Makes what you read far more personal. This way I think its superior to evernote and apple's news app. Create your own magazines...no brainer! My only gripe is that three weeks in and I still cant share any safari websites to my flipboard magazines and tech support has failed to come up with a solution
