This app is mostly well done but it does have a few problems that are more annoying than anything else. First, the home page will auto rotate for a nice wide view, but when you go into an article, it will only display portrait, no rotation whatsoever. Seems like an easily fixed problem, but I'm not a programmer. Also, many times, an article will say "see video above" but what is a video on the full site is nothing more than a picture on the mobile app. I understand the need to simplify for mobile, but I feel like the pic should at least link to the video in the article and allow playing with YouTube app or whatever. Really these are the only two issues I have with this app. It's not a data hog and it gives me the Huffington Post right at my fingertips wherever I go, which is very nice! But compared to other news apps, it leaves something to be desired.

I very rarely write reviews - but I feel the need to express my extreme dissatisfaction with the new Huffington Post app format. It is completely unusable. Navigation is broken and the font is too small to read. This used to be one of my favorite apps - now it's garbage.

Latest update makes all articles unreadable on Kindle fire. Cannot expand font. Utterly useless now.
Don't the programmers test this on all versions of Kindle before releasing the update to the app?

So much was lost with the new app--I've deleted it from my Kindle. Text too small, can't turn sideways to make it larger, too many pics--became more complicated, rather than simpler. HuffPost, you screwed up.

The Huffington Post is considered by many to be very left-of-center, but even though I self-identify as a political moderate, I like the Huffington Post's comprehensive news coverage. I generally check the website rarely (rather, I frequently come across articles through Google News), but with this app I appreciate just how extensive their selection of articles is.

The app is very polished and I highly recommend it to anyone who follows the news. The widget is also quite good, but as another reviewer noted, it is not as customizable as some other programs' widgets are.

I am running this on a Motorola DROID 2 Global Android Phone, Sapphire (Verizon Wireless) and have had no problems so far with the program or the widget crashing or freezing. I will update this review if I do experience problems.

This app is now horrible. The large pictures are not necessary. The font is too small on some articles. It is no longer easy to read and needs to go back to what worked well.

I love this site online and used to love it on my Fire-- but no longer. I don't need all the pictures, just the titles in each category and then I can choose what to read quickly. The font is way too small. Change it back or I'll look elsewhere!

Don't waste your time downloading this if you are using an Android device. The app does not function well; most features don't work.
