It’s all right, but... 3/5
I’ve been using this app for a while, and noticed recently that the hyperlinks are set to HYPERDRIVE. I can barely scroll through an article halfway before being directed to another page that my finger BARELY brushed. I appreciate making links easier and more reliable to follow, but maybe tone it down a bit? It’s crazy annoying and I usually don’t even finish reading the original article.

Occasionally logs me off and I have to log back in. It gets annoying. Sometimes it crashes. And most of the content is stupid quizzes.
Recycled stale content 2/5
Used to have funny new stuff.... LOL feed hasn't changed in weeks. Website never would load or always had problems, only reason I tried the app. Disappointing cuz I used to really like Buzzfeed
I love 💗 🐶 5/5

My favorite kind of dog 🐕 a German Shepard because they are very good at tricks
Is it possible to have all the Twitter links to fit within the buzzfeed app, rather than having to switch between Buzzfeed to Twitter?
Best app ever 5/5
I love to take quizzes when I have nothing better to do
The app is good.
Comments don’t work 1/5
How is it that you post a comment and somehow it disappears? Nothing inappropriate that needs to be removed, just basic thoughts. Why is buzzfeed not allowing people to share their opinions??
Kind of a news junkie and Buzz has articles that other outlets do not have.
Dark mode!!! 5/5
Thank you so much for taking advantage of dark mode on your app. Because of dark mode, I find myself coming back to your app more frequently as it is so easy to read. Thanks for all tour work!
Stop the $%$#^ Popups!!!!! 1/5
I used to enjoy Buzzfeed. They do have legit reporting and they do have stupid fun things to read. But now they have put in these pop up ads that creep in about every minute or two. They are created to distract you from whatever you are reading. It makes it hard focus on what you are reading. I have taken to exiting whatever I am reading every time they pop up because they are so distracting. PLEASE make Buzzfeed readable again and STOP THE POPUPS!!!!! NO ONE WANTS THEM!!!!!
STOP THE POPUPS!!!
Just so you know, I read Buzzzfeed a lot less now. I also exit whatever I am reading when they popups happen, which completely undermines what you are trying to do.
I don’t think anyone at buzzfeed actually uses the app. Otherwise they’d see when the reposted tweets that need formatting, ie the 🤝 joke, are unreadably mashed together (years old issue). They’d see how intrusive the ads are and how ultra sensitive the links in them are. (Maybe to deceptively inflate the click through rate?)
Additionally the fun, informative stories of the past are bow being replaced by endless lists of things to buy from Amazon and Walmart (And a corresponding lack of criticism of them) It’s sad to see a once great site declining. Buzzfeed was very 2010’s, I hope in the 20’s someone else can take they ethos they started with and run with it.
Everything is fine EXCEPT 2/5
Every single time I’m in something and I have to respond to a message or exit the app at all. It restarts completely and I never have a clue what the header was to what I was looking at so I lose it forever
There are ups and downs 3/5
I like buzzfeed for the content and the quizzes mostly for killing time but you can’t log in.... like at all. I haven’t been trying anymore. I also don’t like how the comments are unavailable on the controversial topics but the comments are available for things like shopping. I understand that everyone has their own opinions and people can say rude things but that’s what reporting/ deleting comments are for.
Another thing: most of the quizzes are about Kpop now. Could you switch it up a bit?
Ok I love buzzfeed which is why this is so annoying 3/5
When you’re scrolling through articles these days, touching the screen (to scroll) anywhere near a hyperlink opens it. Including shopping like, links to users who submit things, etc. it’s ANNOYING plz undo it
This is a great app and the format has gotten better. My only issue is the advertisements. Barely touching them can activate it and send me to the hyperlink on it. I’ll be casually scrolling through and I constantly get redirected to the ad without meaning to hit it. They are also known to pop up over the button that starts or continues a quiz. It’s really annoying. I understand the need for ads just stop getting in the way
Still love the app 3/5
By Lee Lover
When scrolling on a shopping article, the links are SO touchy that even if you are near or around the link to the product it takes you immediately to Amazon. It never used to do this before and I can’t even scroll through those articles anymore because it’s so frustrating
All the best quizzes I never knew I needed!! 5/5
I love the articles and quizzes here! There’s always a catchy headline that snags my attention and next thing I know I’ve spent hours being entertained! I’m an older millennial band I think there’s enough here for every age range! I love it!!
Love Buzzfeed, infuriated by the app 2/5
I’ve been a big fan of Buzzfeed’s content for over seven years and have probably had the app on my phone for four of five years. I never had a problem with it until the last 2 months. The app is now super sensitive to any touch, even mistaking scrolling for clicking, so I usually get redirected to 3-10 Amazon/Twitter/ad links per article I read. I’ve never written an app review but this issue has been so frustrating that I had to share this somewhere with the hope that it could be addressed!
New ad format is terrible 2/5
By SCUSE me
I used to love using the buzzfeed app to kill time. But ever since they launched an update that makes ads EXTREMELY hard not to click on, I am 100% over it. I do not recommend downloading. After attempting to use it for a couple of days with the new ad format, I just couldn’t stand it anymore so I deleted the app.
I took test on buzzfeet and the meanie weenies told me I was a pile of bad word of poop. Now I went to doctar and I have deprson. Now I have acne feet and am suing. Not nice or cool. I will ban you I made microsoft
Too much Kardashian/Jenner Content 3/5
BuzzFeed please STOP posting so much Kardashian/Jenner content! Please stop making them relevant
Sign out 2/5
I’m constantly getting signed out of the app. It’s really frustrating.
Minor problems 4/5
I love the buzz feed app, I find that it’s very easy to use except for the fact that there are way too many inconveniently placed links in the article. I find that when I’m scrolling I am ALWAYS clicking on links by accident and it’s quite a pain to keep closing the links and opening the app back up again. I just wish they were either placed better or reduced. I haven’t noticed this problem until recently.
I love this app, it’s everything you want in one!!! Literally could spend my days taking buzzfeed quizzes!!!!

Need more quizzes about houses
A bunch of Taylor Swift stans in that office 1/5
If you want constant coverage of the reigning champ of white privilege, Taylor Swift, then download this app. They twist their stories to always paint her as the victim, instead of what she truly is - a bully who manipulates the public into thinking she’s always wronged by another.
I’m tired of going to their app and seeing nothing but the made-up victimhood of Taylor Swift. Write about actual issues. Highlight stories of people doing good in this world. Hell, I’d rather you write more about the Kardashians at this point. Get over your fascination with Taylor Swift. She doesn’t even stand for anything other than herself, except the gays, but that’s a bandwagon she jumped on within the past couple months. Some role model 🙄.
Waffle hand 4/5
This app works well. Very entertaining but,also can tend to glitch, quite a bit as well.
Stop redirecting me toShopping sites 1/5
It’s making me crazy
By dainal tiger
So I did a dogs one and it was what will you name your dog when you get older and I did it a couple times and the name was always Brix
Not that fun anymore 1/5
By no buzz left
It was kinda fun for a while, but it’s just a ton of Kardashian/Jenner or product placement. You can take a few quizzes to pass the time, but none of them make any sense.
I can’t stress enough that my biggest issue is that they seem really obsessed with the Kardashians. It’s disappointing to think someone has a job writing articles about what that family tweets.
By gooogle reveiws
I love this app
love/hate situation. 3/5
i love buzzfeed for the quizzes and articles but i am SICK of getting notifications of spoilers from shows/movies that i am currently watching or going to watch. it makes me so mad and there’s nothing i can do about it. if you are going to put out notifications or specifically.. spoilers on shows or movies, don’t put out a notification written in a way that spoils the show. for example, i just got a notification on who gossip girl is on gossip girl and i haven’t finished the show yet and now all i can do is be mad about it. there isn’t anything suspense now that it’s spoiled so what’s the point in watching anymore. what you could’ve done with the notification is “gossip girl was supposed to be who?” instead of flat out saying who it is. please do better with the spoilers for notifications because i don’t want to have to turn off notifications for the app just to finish a show that hasn’t been spoiled by buzzfeed. that’s all i am asking. besides that it’s a great app.
Current guilty pleasure 5/5
Specifically, lists of cheap, useful, trendy, random and extra-random stuff to buy on Amazon. It’s fabulous. Thank you. Enjoy all the things. Make an Amazon ‘Buzzfeed Must Haves’ list and see how long it takes to buy ALL the things, for yourself, for friends and family, for some random person you see that ‘could really use it’ ... the possibilities are as endless as the lists. How can I get *that* person’s job? The one compiling the sacred lists? LMK
It is my favorite 3/5
I meant to put a five star because it’s awesome say hi to me if you’re reading this
Newest Update comes with problems... 3/5
By Bev johnson
I know the content on Buzzfeed can be hit or miss, but mindlessly scrolling through lists/quizzes is admittedly a guilty pleasure of mine. With the newest update, I find that if I leave my finger on the screen for just a second too long while scrolling, it will open a link to the product on that article’s list. This happens several times in the span of scrolling through one article list and is not from clicking on any links. Wondering if they somehow added a hyperlink to all the words/photo? Nevertheless, it is extremely annoying to close out of amazon or whatever app Buzzfeed opens to go back to the article. So much so I wish I could either go back to a previous version or may delete altogether.
Beware, once you start browsing the BuzzFeed app you won't be able to stop! There is something for everyone-I'm in my forties and my family members from their 20s to their 70s enjoy sending posts back and forth to each other. My favorites are the animal posts-they always cheer me up if I'm having a down day! Love, love, love, this app!!
Very fun 5/5
I have a lot of fun during my free time just browsing through and catching up on random information and news. The quizzes are hilarious, and it’s obvious a lot of work is put in. Great App. Thanks for the hours of entertainment!
Discovered a while back. Love the cat videos.
When I go to take a quiz I can’t see the pictures it tells me to choose....
WHAT IS LIFE??? 2/5
Buzzfeed, I love your silly articles but WHY does your whole app refresh when I click a link that takes me to another app??? I’m looking at a list of great products to buy and when I click the link and go back to Buzzfeed the whole app has refreshed. Please fix.
Last update sucked 2/5
Hate bottom arrow placement and reformatting of tabs.. Will back off using it until fixed it’s so cumbersome.
I’m a guy 1/5
Why does every quiz revolve around me being a woman.... I’m a guy so...
Not a fair recent app changes 2/5
Not a fan of the recent app changes. Back button moving to bottom is a little annoying but manageable but the real problem now is the ads. Literally every other picture is an ad and they load perfectly fine while the article crashes constantly, the article, pictures don’t load, and just not an enjoyable reading experience.
I can’t scroll through a post without a link opening up at least 10 times.. it’s irritating to the point where I’m thinking about just deleting the app and I’ve had buzzfeed for years

I love buzzfeed! 5/5
By Total Recast
When I need something to tweet about I can always count on buzzfeed to give me an example of liberal being a smug, hateful, lunatic. Cheers
Forceable quizzes 2/5
After reading an article and swiping left to go back it forces me to take a random quiz that I can’t X out of. I then have to restart and it’s frustrating
New update is AWFUL 1/5
The new update is terrible. The categories are even more messy than they were before. I used to love this app for recipes and now there’s not even a food section anymore. The newsfeed is bizarre. This is just awful.
