  • App needs a visual designer. Bye.

    ///Update to original review: cancelling my trial subscription. Really—there is enough design info and know-how out there to create a good user experience./// Please get a visual designer to create more readable titles in the app. White text on light photos make for about 50% readability when scrolling through articles. I probably won’t continue with a subscription. Other magazine apps are much easier to scan and read.

    The latest makeover squeezes the list of articles into a small stripe down the center of the screen with about 2/3 of the available “red space” left entirely blank. No subtitle or summary of an article is given until you click on it. Browsing for content does not need to be this hard, guys.
  • Upgraded experience

    Streamlined layout; very easy to navigate. I’ll be reading Salon on mobile from now on. Love being able to watch Salon Talks conversations and intriguing documentaries in the app, too.

    We all know Salon has a heavy ideological slant. And that's ok as long as you realize that. But the last few years it reads more like a blog written by some junior-high Fellow Travelers. It used to be a good source for a certain side. It also offered some great thought and arguments for that side. It's totally in the same class now as folks who post ridiculous things on Facebook that they haven't taken 5 mins to figure out of they're even making a factually correct statement. It seems like Hitchens was the last contributor that was smart enough to express cogent thought. It was like they were waiting for him to die so they could just go off-the-wall insane. It's depressing. What I also did odd is that these authors/contributors get paid for the content try produce. As a former editor and contributor for major news outlets I find it hard to believe that they could simultaneously lower their standards so far, so fast, and retain a majority of their readership. It's baffling in addition to being sad.
  • Good stories

    I've read your articles for quite awhile, recently installed the app. The writers put a good left handed swing on things.. keep up the good work.. we need the pot to be stirred=] Only drawback is that news isn't always fresh and some grammatical errors.. may make it seem not as believable at times : /
  • Trump trump trump

    I understand the election is near, but Salon's team of writers have found nothing interesting enough in the entire world that deserves attention besides Donald Trump. Talented as the staff may be, their utter disregard for all current events that don't surround Donald Trump is very disappointing.
  • Stories don't update.

    I feel like they recycle a lot of their stories by just republishing them with a new title and image. They don't even bother trying to keep their most read articles up to date. Or maybe their read articles are the most read because that is all they have to read.
