Great app with current problems 3/5
I love the feel and content of this app over the years. Easy to use and customize with content I want to read. However, almost half of the articles I click now go into a loading frenzy and then hit a blank screen. I have cleared the cache and restarted with no luck. I’m deleting the app now and will definitely try again in a few months to see if its just bugs with iOS 13.
Way too many ads 5/5
I’ve been a diehard user for over five years and I’ve never seen a platform that has so much ad as Flipboard does. I’m a huge fan and have referred many of my colleagues and friends over he years but candidly I’m a bit disappointed with the ads, pop ups and commercials displayed every where.
Crashing Oct. 2019 5/5
The links inside of the article causes the app to crash on my iPhone 10s (everything is updated)
Update: They reached out to me and found a fix!
I love Flipboard!
Getting worse every day ... more ads and more ads that block content 1/5
The joy is gone
Hello ads 2/5
I’ve used Flipboard since it came with my Samsung phone many years ago. Always been a go to source for news and updates on things. But with the latest update they’ve finally brought ads, so it looks like I’ll find a new source
Great but 3/5
Gay photos are often censored but half naked women are not a problem. They say it isn’t true but just try reading certain articles from The Advocate or Out...
Problem with localization 1/5
By Coredesang #1
In that app impossible to set localization for the news. If you are russian speaking person. News news will be receiving mostly russian sources. I’m quit with using that app.
Getting worse 3/5
Flipboard presents news well with selectable font sizes and dark format at night. However, an increasing number of stories are clickbait for subscriptions. Not one subscription for all news, but each individual publisher. An option to filter out clickbait stories would be a welcome feature.
5 star 5/5
News and info is quick and easy... love Flipboard!
Fantastic App 5/5
Love how user friendly and customizable it is. Very fluid.
Flipboard use to be the best.....no longer is 1/5
If you just like reading the news, then this app is ok. With their constant updates fixing bugs it get tiresome. The comments section are trolled pretty hard by politics. Flipboard does nothing when you report offensive, disturbing comments. Flipboards support is a flat out joke. It all seems automated and robotic.
Best News App 5/5
So I won’t change the rating because I love how it is currently set up but very much dislike the new setup. I think because their current setup there is nothing like it and it forces you to focus more on stories as your flipping through. As long as I can keep the current version for myself you can do whatever you want with the new version. Otherwise count me out of using flipboard. And I have been a avid user since it’s release
Awesome articles 5/5
I have the most extraordinary time reading the up to date articles on my favorite topic. American Politics. I appreciate the verity of intellectual writers who represent different news organizations: Time, New York Times, LA Times. Vox, Fox, Huffington post, Vanity Fair, Root, Ext. Thank you! Keep up your amazing professional job!!!
Needs Some Tweaking... 2/5
This app went down one star.
I know you need ads to make money but it’s gotten ridiculous when...
... A video ad will stay at the top of the screen while you are scolding and won’t go away until you press the “x” to close it. AND THEN the “x” is so small you end of clicking inside the video and it opens/launches the video.
... You’re scrolling to browse through an article and ads are still loading causing your article to be pushed down even more and you need to stroll down over and over again.
I DO understand that you need ads but this is crazy. The app isn’t what it use to be. 👎🏻 👎🏻
Didn’t see a way to reach out for suggestions on the app so I’m posting it here.
* I’m not sure if there’s any setting to do this but it’s very annoying when you are flipping through the stories and articles from the prior day are showing up in the view. Articles should be grouped by day and allow you to choose what day (if you want a prior day. The current day will still be displayed as usual.)
* I’m not a fan of the articles that require you to click to read the entire story. The entire story should be within the Flipboard article when I open it. I know it’s from where the article is coming from but standards should be set for information being shared on Flipboard.
Do you have a pro version without all the ads? I loved Flipboard but it every time I tap under a news the page just loaded it with full ads and it gets annoying.

I love the concept my favorite Newsgathering post
Bug in Flipboard 1/5
There s a big the past couple of days. You can’t flip to the next story and some content only see half a page. I have to shut down my iPhone and turn it back on to view the content. Very irritating. No problems with other apps.
Can’t load stories 1/5
By AK in DE
On iPad running 13.1.2, most pages don’t load properly. They go through a bunch of pages trying to load, finally ending up with a blank white page that’s perpetually and unsuccessfully trying to load. It’s been like this since I upgraded to iOS 13, and it renders Flipboard absolutely unusable!
Help & Support Broken 1/5
There’s no longer any way to contact support or help via the app. You can search help topics, but once you open the Help and Feedback option in user settings, you’re stuck there. There’s no way to close that window and return to Flipboard, and there’s no way to send a message to the company.
Nice App 1/5
Nicely designed app.
Lot of annoying ads.
Not very customizable, by location.
Recent update created more bugs. Clicking any link, force-closing the app.
Links in some articles make app crash 3/5
New iOS makes app crash when you click on links. This is particularly true for amazon item links. Please investigate and resolve.
Still Going downhill 1/5
Your app does not start from the recently used part of the iPad dock. Also, your help screen, which I’m using now, hides the ability to dismiss the help screen. If I pull down on the screen, I see that it’s there. But I have to close the app and restart to continue. Please fix. Also there is no cursor in this text field. This app continues to go downhill. Also, there was no was to send this from the feedback screen. There was no send button, so I copy and pasted what I had written and placed here. Again PLEASE FIX!
Too many videos don’t play. Too many articles appear blank. Too many stories are not complete. Too many embedded photos are not where they belong. Too many photo captions are displayed incorrectly. If it wasn’t for “open in Safari” this app would be useless. Sad really.
More and more disguised Ad’s and article sponsorship 2/5
I used to really enjoy opening this app and reading all the diverse articles that used to have moderate ad’s for support. Nowadays, not only are the SPONSORED ADS out-numbering the actual articles, even worse, there are a GROWING number of BS articles, that lets face it, simply are a PAID ON THE BACK END endorsement/advertisement for a product or brand. It doesn’t take a genius to see this activity. Frankly, I’ve grown weary of having to weed-through all the BS in this app, so I don’t use it like I used to. I rate a 2 instead of a 1 because the layout is nice, that’s it. There are better news feeds out there.
Constantly crashes 3/5
Has potential though.
advetisement roiled this app 1/5
Pages do not load for minutes now. it was a great app, loved it, but have will find another reader. Good bye flipboard.
Best news app... by far. 5/5
This is my go-to. Best aggregator on the web.
Intrusive ads 🙄 2/5
Used to be a great app. Way too many ads now-a-days. And the ads are getting bigger as well. It’s too bad. I hate to see a good app taken over by ads
Used to be good. Now I have to jump through hoops to login 1/5
By Silver Claw
I reinstalled the app recently. I tried to login, but it said I had to go through the “forgot my password” process, even though the password was correct (phone remembered it). Guess I won’t be using this app anymore, if I have to go through more steps to login. Apple News works well enough!
Good job devs. You’re competing with a built in app, and you force me to go out of my way and take extra steps to login. I don’t need this app enough.
If you’re reinstalling the app, be aware it’ll force you to reset your password through the stupidest way. Instead of a simple in app “please put in a new password” like most apps do, you’ll have to go through the “forgot my password”, which means going to my email and going through hoops and just ugh. Not worth it!
DO NOT CHANGE 5/5
I saw the preview of the new design and do not like it. My mess with a great formula! 👍
By transfer king
My “go to” news source
Speak Selection no longer reads entire article 1/5
Speak Selection no longer reads entire article with iOS 13+. Will stop reading at itallic words and some paragraphs. Will just skip to bottom. I have to open the pages in Safari to have speak selection read entire article.
News, Information and other 5/5
I had Flipboard on my previous Android which was factory installed. I immediately loved it to get informed in all subjects I was interested in. Recently I was forced to get a new phone so I purchased an iPhone which did not have Flipboard. Yes, there were other formats to read the news but I really missed Flipboard. So after a couple of weeks without it, I downloaded the app and now am back to receiving news and information in this handy accessible format. I love it!
New version keeps crashing and sharing doesn’t work right. 1/5
Not working properly
Share on Flipboard gone 3/5
I used to love sharing Flipboard articles with friends I have on Flipboard and followers and that’s now gone!!
By laidback dude
App should be pulled from the App Store until comments are removed. The app for a news aggregator is fine. Comments are made by terrorist organizations like antifa and non stop threatening to do harm or kill.
Too Many Ads 1/5
Simply overrun with ads... now the new version has ads in between almost every post AND has a pop-up video ad taking up 1/4 of the screen... done. Deleted. I will find another app to read my feeds.
Frederick Jackson app 5/5
By Reiko Veino entertainment
Flip is the best the BEST.
No flipping? 2/5
I switched to the new design is it me or did you do away with the page flipping? For me, it’s just a long, endless scroll now which defeats the purpose of FLIPboard. Thankfully you can go back to the old design (which I did) if it’s not broken, don’t fix it. Flipboard sets itself apart from the others (even Apple news) because flipping is better especially from bottom to top. Please don’t implement this as a mandatory update later down the road.
When will “Sign in with Apple” be available for Flipboard? 4/5
Love the app, but any five star app need “Sign in with Apple”.
Displaying a Sign in with Apple button in your app or website means that people can sign in or sign up with just a tap using the Apple ID they already have, and skip filling out forms, verifying email addresses, and choosing passwords. Sign in with Apple provides a new, more private way to simply and quickly sign into apps and websites while giving people a consistent sign-in experience they can trust and the convenience of not having to remember multiple accounts and passwords. In cases where you choose to ask for a name and email address, people have the option to keep their email address private and share a unique, random email address instead. For developer guidance, see AuthenticationServices.
Sign in with Apple makes it easy for people to authenticate with Face ID or Touch ID and has two-factor authentication built in for an added layer of security. Apple does not use Sign in with Apple to profile users or their activity in apps.
Used to enjoy this app but now the ads are overwhelming. 1/5
Every update adds more and more intrusive advertising. This latest one is so jarring with the flashing ads that I can’t concentrate on the article I’m trying to read. There are now even large ads that cover the material your tying to read. I’ve given up using this app because the advertising is just too much to try and deal with.
Everything you want 5/5
Love this app. I get to choose topics i want and they are updated throughout the day. This is my go to for news, be it science, politics or home decorating.
Was good is getting worse 3/5
With all the paywalls and adds it’s starting to be unusable. Shame...
Every link causes it to crash 1/5
Every time I click on a link in an article, the application crashes. This is incredibly frustrating and makes Flipboard basically unusable for me.
Expect Fake News 1/5
While this is a brilliant concept, they spin every story/article into a total leftest bias. Whatever happened to simple facts? I’m not sure if it’s just their sources or if they are ‘trying’ to sway readers. Either way, I’ve stopped using the app due to getting the same crap as the television puts out. Just not worth my time.
Works great until... 1/5
One of My favorite apps until I started gets messages from the news sources that I’m out of free articles and I have to subscribe. Becomes almost useless after a couple weeks. Not a problem on Apple News or Smart News.
That’s all I get... 2018 iPad running iOS 13 whatever... This used to be a decent app, now it does nothing.
Non Stop Intrusive Full Page Ads. All the time. 1/5
By Steele Imaging
I had to fight through closing ad after ad, just to read the news.
Update: oct 6 2019 - still TOO many ads to even read a news story. Once again, deleting the app.
When you update the app... let us know what you are updating. Not the same stupid “slogan” each time.
Until then... I will utilize other sources that I can actually navigate around.
You blew it Adboard. I mean Flipboard. When I see more ads than news, you become irrelevant.
Don’t Do It! 1/5
Crashes constantly on 13. Deleted.
