So many pop ups 1/5
By huffpost adblocker
Every article I hit I have to brace myself for two random pop up windows, I don’t even touch the screen until they show up and then I have to close them before I can read anything. Deleting this trash app.
Won’t reset after looking at video. 3/5
I love this app, but recently when I watch a video, and try to return to regular pages, I cannot return. Arrow at left top of page disappears and I have to close app to get out
Bad updates 1/5
After update requires payment, but you can’t pay for it in the App Store. Wouldn’t pay for it anyways.
Once you delete an account, if you attempt to sign in but forgot your HP PWD for the account, you will be sent a code. This action takes you away from the HP sign-in page so the code won’t work. It is a feature born of incompetence.
The APP is not good. 1/5
Update: Nope. Every time there is an update, I download the app and try it. Again, within 20 seconds of the new download, the article flicks up and down and I cannot read past the 1/2 point.
Hate the app. I’d rather use the website. I dislike how the articles are set up on the app, and for several weeks the app has had a problem with articles flickering as you scroll to read. This makes it impossible to read the entire article. The content/info in the news articles is good, and I enjoy reading the comments, so I’ll continue to read HuffPost, but through it’s online website.
Its too buggy most of the time. For the past 10yrs I have deleted and reinstalled the app multiple times but it always crash and I lose everything that I saved and it’s always difficult for me to log back in to my account. I wrote Huffpost and got nothing.
Decent app other than the audio hijack that occurs 4/5
Audio hijack is when an app or webpage stops the background audio you are listening to. The consumer is the one who should have the final say on what audio is being played, not an app or random webpage with a stupid ad that doesn’t even have sound.
Test it. Open an audio feed (tune in app) whether it be music or news feed and listen to it, then open the HuffPost app and scroll down all the way. About 3/4 of the way down your audio will be hijacked and stop playing. Why? I have no idea. I didn’t ask for my audio to stop playing, it was hijacked.
Other than that I enjoy the app and it seems well put together.
3/20/2018 - audio still being hijacked
5/1/2020 - audio still being hijacked. Audio you want to hear is shut off after following a news link on their front page. The link has no indication of a video that will play or whatever, it just shuts of your audio.
Articles flicker up and down wildly in a crazed feedback loop 2/5
Please fix, thanks. And yes, I deleted the app and reinstalled it, but the problem remains.
Love it but just one thing... 4/5
I am a liberal democrat, and a big lgbt supporter. This apps opinions are basically that. I love this, it has the latest news on whatever subjects you are interested in, like politics, entertainment, style, queer voices, etc. But for some reason, sometimes when I’m in the middle of an article, it keeps closing in its own. At this point I can barely start an article.
Take me back to my story! 2/5
The most frustrating shortcoming of this app is that if you select a link in a story intentionally or accidentally, when you are done and go back to the app it returns you to the top of the home page! At least return me to the top of the story I was reading or best, to my place in that story. But not the home page! Doesn’t matter how good your programmers are, this is an amateurish design flaw in the app!
Working great now 5/5
An update made it very buggy on my iphone. I reported the problem and they fixed it within a few days, probably other people reported it too.
Useless because it crashes 1/5
After working just fine for many years, the app started crashing today every time that I open it. I hope it has something to do with it being a new version.
I have an iPhone 6 and use iOS version. 12.4.6.
It is completely and totally useless now. I had no problems with the prior version.
Buggy.... just like everyone else is saying and been saying! 4/5
By Love playing game
Look... I love my news and HuffPost but I get sooo annoyed with this app! And honestly I didn’t have to go past the first review to see other people feel exactly the same! I’m too lazy to explain it but I’m positive I’d just be redundant if I did so! All I gotta say is look at CNN’s app and learn a thing or two, please. Thanks
Bug fixes seem to create even more bugs 1/5
After latest update the app goes from crashing some of the time to now crashing all of the time.
Crashes constantly 1/5
After the last update, it closes right after you open a article.
This latest version keeps crashing!! 5/5
This latest update causes the app to crash out as every time I tap headline to load detailed report. iPhone 6+ and iOS 12.4.6
What the hell!!!
Current version (5 April 20) BUGGY 1/5
Crashed twice in a row just trying to read an article.
Deleted it. Will access via Safari instead.
This app keeps crashing every time I open it. I have tried deleting and re downloading and nothing seems to fix the problem. I have the latest version of the iPhone XI pro max and this started happening about 3 weeks ago. Can you please fix this problem?
Very update makes the app worse and worse 2/5
By -400 points. No bonus for V
A few years ago this was a good news app. Sadly, they keep making updates and each one is worse than the last! Newest bad move is getting a message that the app needs updating but there's no update available in the iTunes Store. HuffPo should fire their amateur developer intern and hire a real one.
The app is now crashing as soon as an article is opened.
Fix bugs 2/5
The app is barely usable in the current states. Continues to crash and auto close which has been going on for a few weeks.
Latest update keeps crashing 1/5
After I downloaded the latest update, the Huffington Post app keeps crashing after opening.
The app craps out. 2/5
The information is left leaning and at times preach but can be waded through to get the needed information.
Biggest issue is that it won’t allow signing up to comment. It goes through the screens and the craps out. The interactive posting is failing.
Three technical failures are with landscape viewing. The app skips to other articles and swipes around. While scrolling through an article it will jump if a hyper link is near the scroll point and it will either jump to another link or pop up a new page from the link.
This app was way better before they tried to get fancy with it.
Won’t login 1/5
App is making me login again but doesn’t let us use Facebook or Twitter anymore. It doesn’t recognize my email because I hadn’t used email to login and I don’t want to create a new account. When I go to login it says login to HuffPost Plus. It only shows email or Yahoo but I never logged in that way. Please fix! Update: I created a new account. STILL doesn’t work. When I open the app it shows I’m logged in (with my old account) then switches to say login.
Won’t work without WiFi. 1/5
I can’t get the app to work unless I am connected to WiFi. Won’t let me use cellular data.
IPadOS/IOS Login Issues 1/5
UPDATE (3/12/20): No longer being prompted to sign into HuffPost Plus, but still can’t log in to the community platform. Uninstalled/reinstalled again, FB credentials entered correctly. No luck. IPadOS 13.3.1.
UPDATE (2/29/20): Now being prompted to sign into HuffPost Plus via “HPReactApp,” and closing that dialogue am still unable to log in via FB. The FB issue has been going on with my tablet for what has to be a few months, now. I update every times a new version is released. Nothing.
And now, as of mid-week last the app no longer works on my smartphone, either.
Keeps crashing!! 1/5
App keeps crashing.
Updating is Difficult 3/5
Updating this app is nearly impossible. With each update I need to delete the app and then reinstall it. It’s a lot of work for an update.
3/9/20. With second reinstall, the most recent update is working fine. Thanks.
Keeps crashing with newest update 1/5
Keeps crashing with newest update
Constantly crashes 1/5
By steve the woodland creature
Used to work fine. Now crashes almost every time I open the app
App doesn’t work 1/5
This app just stopped working, no help offered under support. Boo, bad business, you just lost me. IPad user.
I updated and I got this “oops!” Message saying I got misdirected.
Deleted and reinstalled. Still get it. Tells me to check my connect.
This is normally my go to app for news, but starting this morning I am getting an error message and can’t connect at all. Hope this gets fixed quickly.
The screen starts jumping and moving very erratically. Unable to read. Usually have to get out of the site or turn off device and try again. Most aggravating as the content is good. Just can’t read it
With all the gyrations.
Informative but Fix Comments 2/5
By Shibby_Dude :D
I’m not sure what’s going on with this app. My account is logged in and I used to be able to comment. But now any time I try to, it tells me to log in. I log into my Facebook and then it tells me the same thing. And I check and my account is logged in. But I can’t comment ever. Not sure if anyone else is experiencing this but my app has been this way for months
Fix the crashing 1/5
Even after the updates it has been crashing after 30 seconds. Fix it please or I will move on and not come back
Better now but why not send a notification/message to delete app and reinstall cuz the update won’t fix anything unless u do this
You ruined your app 1/5
Your update with all of the links in the article that shuffle one to other articles???? I can no longer scroll through and read without hitting links constantly. It’s so annoying, I’m deleting your app.
While you fixed the hyperlink problem, now the whole screen just goes white when swiping to a new section. It’s a bummer. I tried your app again after receiving a response from whomever it is that responds to people on here. Will be felt wrong again.
Love the content, can’t do the glitches.
When are you going to get it together? 2/5
The latest bug is losing your place in an article if you have to switch to another task. Even for one second! Ridiculous!
I used to use the “look up” feature often while reading an article, now when I need clarification of meaning, I can no longer highlight any single words, look up, copy single words or paste single words into my MW dictionary to look it up. Now when I read the news in Huff and I don’t know the definition of a word I have to pass it up, losing understanding and context. Sometimes I look up a word that I’m familiar with already and I just want to be re-introduced to its meaning and I have not been able to do that for a long time.
Strange thing though, I am only able to copy the whole article, if the protection is to discourage plagiarism and manipulation of a specific article I shouldn’t even be able to do that
App Flashes after a few minutes - still happens 2/5
I enjoy the articles but the last few versions of the app aren’t stable on our iPads. After a few minutes, the screen flashes. Once this starts, it will happen over & over again making the app completely unusable. This doesn’t happen on the iPhone app. Please fix!
Update: The developer suggested I delete and re-install the app, which I did. So far, it’s working great. Thanks for responding to my review.
Second Update: The app started flashing again. It jumps up & down & flashes so that I can’t read it. Very frustrating. This is my favorite news site and I’m going to have to abandon the app.
Third Update: App continues to flash. It’s completely unusable. Very frustrating.
Fix please! 1/5
Trying to read an article, and the page starts jumping up and down... usually causing to to click on something you didnt want too...
If that isnt bad enough, when scrolling to the side, after about three swipes, the screen turns white and locks up....
Still not fixed 1/5
By PetePete Seattle
Does not scroll correctly. I’m tired of trying to adjust touch sensitivity under iOS settings. Apps are supposed to work and not break all the time. This thing is a mess. I’m getting rid of this cursed app. Seems no one can fix this! Very frustrated.
Won’t multitask 4/5
Something happened in the most recent update, where the app will no longer support multitasking. Whenever you switch to another app and then switch back, it reloads everything. So, if you were in the middle of an article you have to find it again and scroll to where you where. It is very annoying, please fix.
Worked until it didn’t. 2/5
Was a daily user but since the last update, app no longer shows anything but a blank white screen. As that was 2ish weeks ago and no fix in site, I am officially on the hunt for a new news app. Super bummed.
White Screen Only 1/5
This stopped working a few days ago. Thought there would be a fix by now. Sad.
Does not work 1/5
After opening there is nothing but a white screen. Please fix this!! This was my go to app for news and now nothing. May have to find another source.
What happened?!?! 2/5
I love this app. But now when I open it, all I get is a blank white screen.
Please fix it! I’ve had this app forever without issues!!!
By Old timer.
This app no longer works for me. I open and it is blank. I normally like it and check it every day.
Favorite News App 5/5
The first go to app for news for five years now
