Updated app won't open 1/5
Earlier version worked fine. Needs a fix
Looks nice but works like crap. 1/5
Tweets don't show up in articles (just big empty spaces), when trying to post to Twitter the post window just closes after u type two characters. Can't find anywhere to contact with issues. Has been a buggy, annoying app for some time.
1st review ever left- waste of time 1/5
I really wanted to see the photos in "Funniest Police Composite Sketches" so I downloaded this app despite its poor reviews.
Waste of time! One of the images were even viewable, having just a placeholder. Wasted time downloading, completing their who's using me questions to use it, and then having to search for said article because the web link doesn't open the app page....
Do something else with your 5-7 minutes and don't give these guys your info
By Supreme Ruler of the Universe
What is the problem with the HuffPost app developers? Tweets do not show up on articles. Get your s&!t together!
Hard to take journalists serious 1/5
By Garrett DN
I can get the same fake news from other fake sources with competitor's more-reliable-app. HuffPost's journalists lack integrity but they can draft click bait better than main stream media. The Onion is a more accurate news source but they may be a few days behind.
Fake News 1/5
A load of biased and fake news
Missing sections 1/5
Since the last update many sections have disappeared. Where is the Crime section? And Weird News?
Autoplays video ads. Unacceptable. 1/5
Autoplays video ads in the feed. No option to disable. This is absolutely a deletable offense.
By Richard Water
It stinks! It is basically a blog. Doesn't work. Doesn't provide objective news.
Version is still pretty much the same 1/5
I decided to update my app as I noticed it being all around terrible for the past year or so. I was very excited when I saw they released the new update for which I waited so long. I updated it immediately and went to check out the new app - when I opened it up the headline article was about one of Trumps tweets. I looked down and the second article was also about one of Trumps tweets. I figured maybe the update wasn't a full fix (maybe partial?). Checked out the next article and BOOM an article on one of Trumps tweets! I don't know where they keeping coming up with this A+ content but I'm kinda in the mood to read something else. So I scrolled allllll the way down to the bottom and finally found one which was just about Trump and not one of his tweets (although they did reference three of his tweets in the article). While I'm happy I might be able to enjoy 1-2 articles a week now, I'm going to go back to patiently waiting for the next update.
Love the app 5/5
Much faster with the latest update
Animated Launch Screen is Terrible, No 3D Touch, No Row Actions, but a Hamburger Menu! 1/5
Used to think the app was pretty good, but the latest redesign is terrible.
First, the animated launch screen is terrible. Makes the app feel slow to launch.
You can't 3D Touch an article to see a preview. There is wasted space on every article with bookmark and share buttons. Why would you want to share something you haven't even looked at?!?
I can't swipe a row to bookmark a row or share it, the natural iOS thing to do, because that take you to a new section, it's a mystery swipe!
There's a hamburger button, which is the UI you use when nothing can be prioritized.
Finally, you have no idea what's tappable in an article by color. Did you know author is tappable? No surprise since it's in black like the headline that is not tappable.
Dislike new version 1/5
Much prefer reading the news. If I wanted video I would watch television.
Horrible app 1/5
App is crap
Keeps freezing 2/5
Half the time when I open an article it'll freeze and I have to close and reopen the app to finish reading the article.
I like having the app for entertainment purposes because they are a joke but I am conflicted as to if I misled them into thinking someone likes them.
It's Just Trump Hate 24/7 1/5
Was looking for a News App, down loaded this one! But ended up deleting after Reading nothing but Hate pieces on the President of the U.S. and almost nothing with real news content. All articles are filled with editorial opinions and short on facts! The color scheme is off and the layout is elementary! I hope Huff didn't spend a whole lot of money on this App! Because it shows, prob was put together in a day. Bad App, don't bother!
Can't see pictures in articles 1/5
Any article that shows Twitter responses, nothing shows up. Just a blank, white space. Kind of annoying.
ALL FLUFF 3/5
I like the old app, the old logo, and the old format. The new one is an appealing and the contents are just fluff. Please improve it where possible.
Changed to meet their needs, not user needs 1/5
I wonder if now that Verizon owns HuffPost, they are just trying to make it not as good as it was so they can lose readers and then close it down. I tried to set my preferences to not get videos, and guess what I got: more videos. Same it the other choices I made. I guess I will go back to the Associated Press
HuffPosy censorship 1/5
HuffPost comments editors regularly delete posts that are well within their own stated guidelines. Don't bother with this app.
New format is all fluff and no substance 2/5
I used to be able to get the gist of what was going on with just a quick scroll down the headlines. The new format uses way too much room to deliver less information. Haven't been that happy with HuffPo since the change in management and this newest "look" is enough to make me believe the organization has given up on any attempt at real news anymore. Time to find a new way to get my news.
Fix Tweet Problem 2/5
By Bedford Bob
UPDATE - after a month of no help from support, decided to erase app and reinstall. Tweets work now.
Does anybody at or for huff post read these reviews? I have not been able to see tweets in the app for over a month and see others complain of the problem. I have emailed support several time. No response to me or anyone else. Guess they don't give a hoot.
Not as good 2/5
Liked the old format better. Not having the desire to go there as much. The other way was more readable and seemed to have better articles. I can see myself going less and less to the site and even deleting this app down the road which is saddening.
One of the better news sources 5/5
HuffPost is one of the best sources for top news stories. No clutter, easy to read, and straightforward content. Great job HuffPost team!
Won't update 1/5
For the past week the app was supposed to update but it will not.
I have a 7 plus with up to date software. I'm debating about deleting the app altogether just to get rid of the red notification on my App Store application.
Really buggy. Sometimes clicking a story takes you to the wrong article. Also, tweets don't show up in the app, and HuffPost loves to cite tweets. They display as blank space and you have to open the article in Safari to actually see the tweets.
Ho hum 2/5
Not so hot cosmetic update. Too much wasted space. I liked it better about three or four versions ago, pictures down one side. This was very easy to scan. Oh well, new management has to make changes to prove something. I am not sure that the something provides any value at all. A bit more attention to better writing would be helpful thought.
Superior news source.
Fixed: Crash after switching from US to French edition. 5/5
What happened?! 2/5
What happened to the crime section?! Why remove that?!
I've always liked this news app , but felt for awhile that it was about 90 % politics, leaving very little coverage of other huge stories . I know there's a lot going on in the political area , and it should be reported on, but there should be an equal amount of other serious news events. I like the new format much better, with a wider variety of events that are happening daily.
Keep up the good work.
What's happened to HuffPo? 2/5
This sight used to have good writing, thoughtful pieces and analysis.
Now, it feels like News Lite, where even USA Today has harder hitting "journalism".
Content aside, the most recent incarnation is disappointing, to say the least. There seems to be no discrimination between important stores and stories found in US or People magazines.
I used to go to this site first for headline news stories; however, the Washington Post, AP and Politico beat HuffPo hands-down.
Auto play 2/5
Don't assume I want to watch the video. I'll click on it when/if I want. Don't open it when I'm half way through an article.
Won't launch 1/5
Literally downloaded the latest update less than 3 minutes ago, and the app is completely unusable. It won't launch beyond the sash screen.
New edition 1/5
I hate the new edition. It is very hard to follow. Everything looks like an ad. Horrible formatting. Bad job HuffPost.
No tweets in HuffPost. 3/5
Very irritating. Where is the Help on this issue? Otherwise I would give this app a 5 star.
Easy and clean 5/5
By Marc Janks
Let me get my magnifying glass out so I can see what's going on at huff post , I think I'll just go to daily beast from now on.
I will not elaborate anymore!
How to ruin it 1/5
This latest update continues the trend of making the app worse not better.
Too much fluff 1/5
By Papabear of Green
App doesn't work well. Seems to keep old data around bloating it's size to almost 1GB. Crashes. Deleted to save space and not waste my time.
What a mess 1/5
This version has screwed up the GUI, lost my preferences (sections) and lost all my previous bookmarks. Disaster!
App works fine on my iPhone 4/5
By Jack 1234568
I have used this app for years and check it frequently during the day. I having experienced any issues using the newer version and continue to enjoy checking in to see what breaking news articles are on there.
So many ads and click bait along with bugs 1/5
This app has become completely trashy with weird ads and click bait crap along with the bug where if you're reading a story and your phone gets turned slightly it pushes you all the way down the page to a screen full of guess what???? Click bait crap!!! Shouldn't we be representing better than this?
Well, you F'ed it up! 1/5
Why??? You dumbed it down, didn't you? Mixed up the fluff & fun w/summations of hard news & intelligent blogs. I Don't care what's trending - that's what twitter is for; & Buzzfeed, which doesn't mix its hard up news with w/it's fun & fluff, I like that. Both are a good thing. At least put outlines around your stories, right now they just float in a sea of white background, looking lost & randomly placed. Is this what the HuffPost is going to be without Arianna Huffington at the helm?
Hate the new UI. 1/5
By Former ABC Newser
Shows fewer articles on the front page, shows "trendy" articles I don't have an interest in, and have no control over configuration of the front page. It's a huge step backwards in usefulness.
Love this app 4/5
Great stories entertaining and informative
The best!!! My go to news sight.
Crashing update 1/5
New update won't open the app.
Please Fix Glitches! Aaaand done! 5/5
The latest update is glitchy. The most annoying of which is this: if my phone or tablet switches between portrait and landscape view - it skips to the bottom of the page. It is really irritating to have to find my spot in the article repeatedly. I guess I move my phone around a lot because it happens every time I use the app. (I don't have this issue with any of my other news apps.) Please fix the glitch! I'm sure you'll get right on that so thank you in advance. Update- hey you fixed it! Thank you!
