Stories dont update very oftenMore
This app barely functions at all. Needs work.More
I kinda feel like half the people reviewing this didn't actually try to use the app. Maybe it works on different models of phones, but I can't seem to get stories to load at all. Realm bummer, guys.More
This app sucks.... But the onionMore
WOW!!! They're reading my mind before it's even had a thought. Isn't that some sort of social offense, like 'accessory to insanity before the fact'? NMPMore
The UI isn't pleasant to the eye and the ad is large and rendered in a higher contrast than the content. Boo. Navigation is sub-par.More
Great. Needs to update stories a bit, many also have to link to the main site for layout reasons, but well made app and hilarious.More
The content comes through well, and the format seems nice; the writing is great as always. There seems to be an issue, though, where the story shows up in the homescreen list, but when selected shows only a random stock photo and no text. This is, uh, you know, an issue.More
