Did you guys just give up? 1/5
The “Top Stories” section has not been updated since March 23. You have released multiple updates since March without a fix, which means you just don’t give a crap that your garbage app is broken. Instead of News you should call it Olds.
FOUR updates since March and STILL broken?!?!? 1/5
By Why do I need a nickname????
Are you effing kidding me? You have had FOUR updates since March and your “Top Stories” section still displays the same stories from March 23!?!? You clearly don’t give a crap about this app or its users...
Used to be my go to app... 1/5
Horrible app, used to be great source of tech news, but no more.
This is the worst app I use. Yet, I use it. The content is terrific but the app has been a nightmare for years and continues to be awful. In fact it seems to be getting worse. The near constant crashes are so aggravating. There’s a wonderful irony in the fact that the blog I turn to for tech news and reviews has the absolute worst app in the developed world.
Nice App, but new issue, and... 4/5
Sometimes now when you try to share and choose SMS, you don’t get the “To:” field on iOS! This only happened after 1 or 2 shares that worked.
I’m on an iPhone X and all up to date
Oh, also this version is back to crashing every now and then.
Also vertical-scroll can be stubborn about loading new stories.
I still appreciate Engadget, and I write this review because I really do care (selfishly hoping they’ll fix stuff)
Constant crashes and battery drain 1/5
Refreshing does not work properly, the app crashes when ever refreshing for new articles. Formatting moves areas outside of touchable area on iPhone X for videos or some slide shows. Battery drain is atrocious, seriously seems like this was not tested at all.
Crashes when refreshing stories 1/5
Wow, pulling down to refresh stories crashes the app after updating to the latest version. My top stories still haven’t changed since late March. This app is a tire fire.
Top stories don't update 1/5
The tip stories no longer update. Still showing articles from a week, a month ago. They've updated the app 3 times since I've had this issue and it's still a problem lol
Needs improvement 1/5
Buggy on iPhone X
Top stories section will not refresh, showing 3/23 news 2/5

Top stories section will not refresh, showing 3/23 news
Doesn’t refresh. 1/5
First article is stuck from a month ago. I see new articles if I use my browser.
Not sure anymore 2/5
The featured articles at the top of the app are almost a month old yet articles below are updating. Certain interfaces are buggy.
Update April 2018: still just as bad as ever - they removed the pop up ads but now the app will just crash every so often and my featured articles haven’t updated in about a month.
For a tech blog, this app looks and feels clunky and slow. And they use app store promo ads which are essentially pop-ups that open the app store on your phone without any prompting.
Some Bugs!!! 1/5
Top Stories is stuck on 3/23/2018, it won’t refresh even after clearing app cache and reinstalling. App feedback is terrible since it relies on the native phone email to compile feedback - what if I don’t use the native email app?!! Doh!!
Bad app 1/5
Why this app is getting worse. They don’t care about their app???
Make Engadget logo a button that goes to top 1/5
Please for the love of god make the Engadget logo a button that scrolls to the top! Or some button, any!
The “top news” articles never refresh. They are super old. Interface is also not intuitive.
Echo: great article ruined by a terrible app 1/5
I have been subscribing to Engadget for years. Yet the app has no improvement
Not compatible with iPhone X after six months it came out 1/5
What a mess, five months since iPhone X launch and no support for the screen so far. Focus on updating the app it’s not that hard of a job slackers
App crashes on refresh 2/5
Great articles but when you pull down to refresh it freezes and crashes.
Stopped working 1/5
Need I say more? It now just sits there with a “trying to load” icon spinning, but never gets anywhere.
Won’t load latest articles. 1/5
By DeAndre R.
The app is slow and clunky. It won’t load the latest articles (it’s stuck with articles from March 01). It’s STILL not optimized for the iPhone X. You’d think an app focusing on tech news would have been updated for the latest iPhone by now...
Guess I’ll delete it since it doesn’t work at all now.
Terrible app 1/5
For a tech blog this app is shockingly terrible and doesn’t even fit the iPhone X screen, how?
App crash issue 1/5
App occasionally crashes when reloading content. Screen gets frozen for a few seconds and app closes.
Like it 3/5
Needs iPhone x support. Tech site should be up on the latest, x has been out for a while now.
Pls update the app to support IPhone X and bookmarks aren’t remembered. 1/5
Pls update the app to support iPhone X and also bookmarks aren’t remembered.
iPhone X 1/5
I love Engadget but get disappointed when I don’t have optimization for my phone.
What a waste. 1/5
Easier to access it through a browser.
Bad support 1/5
No support for iPhone X.
Story quality is down, UX is poor. And again, it still doesn’t support iPhone X.
iPhoneX support?!?!! 1/5
How can it be possible that a technology app does not have iphone X support! You should be ready on day one. Embarrassing. Also, why does the navigation not work like almost every other app? Weird GUI design
If I could give 0 stars I would... 1/5
How is it even possible that half a year into the iPhone X there’s still no optimized support for it? Doesn’t even fill the screen. Shame, Engadget, shame.
No comments either, and videos don’t play right. But those complaints have gone unheard for years so...
JUST MAKE THE APP WORK ON MY IPHONE X ALREADY.
I’ll just stop using the app soon.
Garbage app 1/5
Like your articles Engadget, but this app is awful. It crashes every other time I open it, isn’t yet optimized for the iPhone X screen (4+ months in), and a lot of the articles (particularly galleries) aren’t fully viewable. Please, please fix these issues, especially the stability issues, they have been ongoing for more than a year
Pathetic App Design 1/5
By DJ Bress
Terrible app. No iPhone X optimization? You guys serious? Probably deleting this app for good within the next week and switching to a different tech news service.
No X support and memory hog 1/5
Deleting until these issues are fixed
Not optimized for iPhone X 1/5
Please make it usable for iPhone X or stop publishing about new technology.
Used To Be Great 1/5
I used to love firing up Engadget on my iPad every morning and catching up on the latest tech related articles. Now the app has become a memory hog with headlines that extend past the screen size making scrolling thru news articles less than pleasant.
Come on Engadget (AOL), what happened? Are your app designers so incompetent they can’t make a useable app or do you just don’t care anymore?
I’ll keep checking the app every month or so to see if it has been updated to make it useable, but for now I have to get my tech news elsewhere.
Goodness update your app for the iPhone X. Just embarrassing that you haven’t yet.
iPhone X support 4/5
I love Engadget. It’s a great source for technology news. I read it every day. I wish they would update it with iPhone X support. It’s the only app on my phone that hasn’t updated yet. For a technology app that’s kind of ridiculous.
What used to be a quick, slick and informative app is now both functionality-wise and contentwise,disastrous. Seriously guys - it's just a news reader app. Haven't we solved this yet?
Not so bad to me! 5/5
I love it!!!!!
I Used to Like This App 1/5
By Old Dusty Dog
A good app gone bad. Why couldn't you leave well enough alone?
Update: Now it crashes intermittently. iPad Mini2. ☹️
1/8/18 Update: Crashing more frequently since latest update.
I’d rate this app higher, but the ‘most popular’ articles haven’t changed since March.
Any idea how I can force the app to clear its cache and reset the most popular articles?
Freezes on refresh 1/5
Pull down to refresh too quickly and it freezes
Still no IPhone X update 1/5
What a joke... why haven’t the developers updated their app months after the new iPhone launch?
How can a technology reviewing company not have an app that works with the latest technology! App looks like trash on the iPhone X... The opinions in your articles are weakened by your minimal effort to stay relevant on your app platform.
Liberal crap 1/5
By Asus use
The articles are full of liberal junk. Should have stuck with technology articles.
Where is iPhone X support 2/5
Where is your iPhone X support ?
iPhone 5 support 1/5
It is embarrassing that ENGADGET app does not support iPhone X yet !!!!!!!!! They are all about new tech when they are way behind in tech.
No comments?? 1/5
You can't view or add comments in articles. Fail..
Please update 4/5
Letterbox on iPhone X
