WHAT'S (STILL) IN THE WORKS
APP PERMISSIONS IN PLAIN ENGLISH
Here's why this app asks permission for certain things, in plain English:
First off, we're using the Android 6.x Marshmallow APIs, which means you you might be asked to allow the app to do something — say, access your SD card — while you're using the app. That's a good thing!
★Photos/Media/Files & Storage: These two permissions are used so you can upload images and the like to our forums. They're also used for downloading our podcast and from our wallpaper gallery.
★Wi-Fi connection: This helps us better serve our award-winning content to you. It's used for analytics and to make sure nothing's going to kill your connection or anything.
★Full network access/prevent device from sleeping/view network connections/set wallpaper: Gotta have network access to use the internet. Sleeping has to do with playback, and wallpaper is for setting your wallpaper in the wallpaper gallery.
Have a concern about a permission? Ask us! We're happy to help. Email [email protected]

Mobile Nations part of our News & Magazines and have average installs from 1000000 to 5000000. Last Update Oct. 28, 2016. Google play rating is 84.1906. Current verison is 3.1.3. Actual size 4.5 MB.
Never mind me.... Just switching you guys over to my tablet for better reading and visual experience ? UPDATE: I can't live without you AC. Don't ever leave me! lol ?~⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐~?
Multi window support please?! Still no Multi window support? Would be great for Samsung phones. K thanks. Material design too.
New version crashes Whenever I rotate my phone from portrait to landscape, the app crashes. Running an HTC One M9 on 5.0.2. Besides that the app works great, can't wait for the material makeover!
A little late for the material design Why so late wirh the material design? I'm thinking you should get rid of Phil.
Really? Won't let me log in. Says I can reclaim my user name but the only other thing I've used on the list says my user name doesn't exist. Tired of fighting with this stupid app. Uninstall
Nexus 5 5.1 The app randomly crashes and takes forever to refresh content.
Great How is it that you guys don't have an Android Wear app yet? Reply: skim through new article headlines and read them if I so choose to go further. I do that with USA today all the time.
Gone downhill. Samsung pays well it seems... I use this app for the widget to stay up to date on ANDROID news, not SAMSUNG...but all I see every other article is "How to do this on your S6". It's getting SO BORING! And the articles apply to nearly all Android phones too, so either they're doing it for SEO or Samsung have shoved some money at them. Will be the death of this site...there are better ways to make money.
Has useful information if you can just overlook some of the smart **s one's trying to run down people asking questions. Not everyone is up to date on technology. Trying to be above everyone like God is just plain stupidity. Luckily I haven't been or will not be ran down by anyone. I will defend myself. You can mark that down.
Hmm... When clicking on a link in the app, that is supposed to open in the app, it instead opens in a browser. Not sure why.
Good, but crashes This app is great, except it crashes when the screen is rotated.
Where is search? I'm trying to find a blog post so I can reply & post a screen shot.
Awesome Connects you to android users all over the world.
Frequent crashes New version crashes quite often. Usually within 3 minutes. Droid turbo
Love all things android! I look up info lots and don't even read it unless its from a legit android source so this is perfect for me! Not to mention anytime i think about downloading ANY APP the first thing i so is check the size of it, its not a big file at all. Plain and simple - Every android owner should have this on their phone!
Awsome app... But!!! Please fix the issue with the effort required to swipe the highlights at the top of the feeds. Otherwise great app.. Oh yeah...Material.
Great!! My go to source for Android news
Still rotation issue !! There is issue with rotation !!!
Search How do I do a search from the home screen if I'm looking for a particular story?
WOW Works well and quickly.
Android Central Best application for all your android news and great community.
Love AC! I love the podcasts and the app! I listen every week on my Nexus 6!
Great App! Really provides great information. Everything just works better compared to the android authority app. Also commenting is great!! Would love to see material design and post notifications however. Can't wait until then!
Crashes upon startup
Runs fine Runs fine on a Nexus 5.
???? What is the point of this app?
Awesome! Just recent came to Android from windows phone. Have both apps on my phone and all involved are very knowledgeable about their respective OSes. Miss WP but happy with droid. Keep the breaking news coming everyone.
Very nice This is my go to app for all things Android and mobile related. Great job!
Sweet I like the Android Central community ☺ can't wait for the material design release!
The app is amazing after the last update Excellent app for Android News And information.
Information is great on this app
Solid Great mobile version of android central... Only problem is I can never attach a picture even after changing the picture size or any other attachment in the forums section
Best source for android news I took a star off because even in areas with ridiculously fast LTE it takes about 8 years to refresh. The app is completely fluid and snappy but waiting for new stories to show up when you refresh takes FOREVER
Very well written articles. App is both visually pleasing and easy to use.
When search comes, should be useful (re-affirmed) Authors replied "still pretty darn useful now." Thanks. Maybe if your life plan includes learning everything there is to know about Android, but not for me. I don't have the time to scroll through hundreds of articles to find maybe one if I'm lucky. I'll stick to Google web search for now.
I like the app very awesome UI Simple, fast no lag, up-to-date on all news. Very good overall.
Very good Make russian please
Material design please
Good To be updated about everything related with Android.
Dissatisfied Doesn't support timely sync when not open. Better provide full rss report on site.
Coooolll I was looking for some app like these. .. and finally I found. Please.. make some function like a translation. Thank you for app
Unusable When this app came out it was great. In the past few months it has become practically unusable. It takes forever to load new articles. Once you click on an article it again takes forever to load. Going back to the main screen, again forever. Mark all read, forever.
Pretty Much Unusable I love Android Central, but I don't love this app. Extremely slow on my Nexus 7 (2013) from the day I downloaded the app. Its especially slow when its searching for new articles.
Great content but... When this app worked, it was great! Part of my morning routine was going on the app and catching up on the latest android news. Well written articles by experts. However, with the most recent update I cannot open the app without it crashing on me. I'm on a nexus 5 running 5.1 and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling and clearing the cache. I'm sure they're working on a fix (the team is great) but be warned, it may crash.
Great app. Great website. This has been a solid, dependable app. I haven't experienced any bugs. I have no complaints. The website content is good. I enjoy both website and app.
I'm a Great Grandma to Twins Blessed with beautiful babies. I am a,Great Grandma, WOW amazing
Sultan Ahmed Worth downloading the 5.1 app but very slow. More than an hour downloading but still only 32%.
Can do without material design I'm hoping you provide the option to retain current UI.
Great Android News BUT Please add disques,I hate not getting notified that someone replied to a comment that I've left.
Keeps crashing. Note 4 Not sure why, but the app keeps crashing all the time. Tried rebooting my phone, still happening. Note 4. Running 4.4.4.
Please add notifications of replies to comments I'd give it 5 stars if it offered notifications for replies to comments.
App is a huge wet turd. Installed on a non-rooted Note 4 running 5.0.1. Kind of ironic that 4 out of 5 times ANDROID Central crashes on my ANDROID phone.
Latest Update Broke it Latest update doesnt even let me open the app. Goes straight into a crash. Willl rerate when fixed since I like the app.
Android on fingertips Most loved technology website and now app.
"Connection error. Please try again." This is the error I get whenever I try to access the forums. Home screen is just fine. And based on the other 1 star reviews, I'm not alone with this problem.
Slow This app is ridiculously slow loading news! An android site with a poor performing android app is kinda sad.
Good but,?? Swipe? Swipe features at the top are temperamental at times. It's becoming unresponsive to touch now. Needs an urgent update in a hurry.
Flawless! Galaxy S6 edge Great app. It's nice to be able to read the articles on the fly.
All forums should have an app like this Just needs notifications
Great app Love that I can get fill articles in the app and it doesn't redirect to the website.
Okay and same goes for my note 4. Lol!
Sometimes it is very hard to swipe across headline articles.
Best app in the world ?
Couldn't live without this app For all my tech news regarding all things Android related, This is where I come. Great app, no issues whatsoever, just kicks a$$ imo.
Keeps getting better Now that the crash bug is fixed the app's awesome again
Good app... The widget keeps disappearing from the home screen.
So slow on nexus 7 2013. Painful.
Keeps crashing Try to upload pictures causes the app to stop.
Great app I love it but I never used it so thanks lol
Wow.... STILL waiting for Material Design....
Margaret Will not start up
very reliable The best news straight from the edition
Great app People deduct stars for some really stupid things! When everything that matters is in the app and running good give the stars people! without them development stops. Do you think this rating system is actually here for you to make a decision? That is actually it's least important function. Anyway to focus on that function.... it's a great app that saves you time for being blazingly fast compared to the browser without the loss of features great job guys keep it up.
Date The green blob on the bottom right of the screen is still really irritating, as is the green highlight bar which appears when scrolling.
Great news source, but needs removable storage support. All the best Android news, from one of the largest Android communities in the palm of your hand! Seamless (lag-free) use, great to look at and easy to use... My only complaint is that this application does not currently allow installation to removable storage, for which it loses a star.
App is crashing.. There is a bug in the headlines scrolling for one handed use. Please fix it!
This application is absolutely great. It has a sleek and smooth UI. It not only displays content from Android Central's blog and forums, but also displays merchandise from their store. It was certainly worth the wait, and now I understand why it took so long to be released!
Only used it once so far... But it worked so well I signed up and I installed the app.
Changing your profile picture thru uploading a photo doesn't work...
I got a question. Why does mine suddenly over nite say I need a new battery charger on my s5. Then since then it's been slowly slowly charging. But it slowly didn't go out either. This phone eats all the charging power also. 9% in only 15 minutes. Well...
Love it. New material design looks and feels great. The app is super fast now. Great job!
Central Android's This app. Has the most awesome wallpaper
Awesome Why can't I view a pic in a thread?
Always love Android Central Great information for the geek in the family! (Me)
Yes!!!!! Material redesign And still........One of my favorite Android information apps. Love the colors love the design and menus. I have one issue. I am unable to open links from my emails. I use the outlook client as my email. Not sure if it's AC app or the email app.
If you are an Android fan, a must have!
Love it Great app for great publishing. Just sometimes wish there was a search button (I know it's coming) and direct share instead of just a list of apps. Another cool feature would be if I read an article that was on more than one Mobile Nations app, it would show that I had read the article in the other apps as well.
Everything you want to know happening with and anything with Android.
Still can't send My comments via SwiftKey on Samsung Galaxy S6. After typing, pressing the arrow send icon doesn't respond.
Android Nation Full of good things
Great redesign Enjoying the new update.
Thanks for listening I see AC replies on every feedbacks users leave. I'm impressed. Please keep up the good work polishing the app on each update. I will rewrite my feedback on every updates as well. This is the app I use first thing in the morning when I wake up to catch up on things (after coffee, sorry) three thumbs up for you (I only have two.. I wish I had three just for this guys)
Great App, Great Widget Widgets are essential for my news digestion of any kind. So far the new Widget is working out great. Would probably want a bit more news to scroll through but not enough to knock of a star
Hate the floating button Until this release I didn't see a floating button obscuring text in the main articles. The changelog says it's not in the way, yet it is. I hate floating buttons with a passion. The app worked great when access to comments was via a fixed icon, so why change it just to match what is in my opinion a poor design guideline that only serves to block text?
70 yr. old geek This is very useful. Only thing left is a powerful search engine for relevance - sensitive topics.
Why make useless changes? What was wrong with leaving the comment button up top next to the share icon? It now blocks some content until you scroll down the page. I may be in the minority disliking material design but this is a bit pointless to me. Otherwise a good app.
Thanks for making the button disappear But it would be much easier if the button is moved back to the top control ribbon. When I want to share a story all I have to do is a single tap. For viewing comments I have to scroll the screen and then tap. Admit it, the floating/disappearing button is just a bad idea.
Informative and witty Good app, up to date news and reviews. Would be 5 stars but I never ever win any of their competitions and I've entered them all :-)
Is it just me....? I'm only writing this to say am I the only one who can't understand why the floating comment blob only disappears when you FINISH reading the article??? Surely it should disappear when you start scrolling so you can see all the article as I thought that was what people were complaining about. It should reappear at the end when you want to read the comments not dissapear after its already blocked what you are trying to read!!! Like I said...is it just me? By the way I love this app I'm just confused!
Good, but... Why, oh why do you serve me the Google login page instead of the Android account chooser? ?
Good to go This is my first time installing this app, looking good so far, thanks.
Note5... Great app! Please give us the option to up vote/down vote comments.
I can't open my media also playstore also everything saying unfortunaly stoped your media thsts why i can't understand whtappent to my prestigio mobile divice
Does the app run even faster if I wear my PURE ANDROID t-shirt?
Informative but stops working to often Most recently... unable to comment... recieving "Android Central has stopped working"
Forum photos Would love to be able to click on a photo in the forums to make it bigger and readable. App still keeps getting faster!
Review I've been a member for about a minute now and they asked me for a review. I can honestly say I like it, So far.
Loved it, until... This app doesn't warrant a large heap. Bye, bye.
Forums section should have a "mark all read" option. And feedback link doesn't work properly - opens up email to send to AC but does not auto fill in the email address - we don't know where to send the feedback email! (to respond to developer reply - Auto populates my phone info but not the email address. LG-H810/5.1, AT&T, app version 2.3.7). Was using Alto mail for the email app. Just tried using Gmail as the email app and that *does* autofill email!
I like it A good source to keep up with the android wirld
Worst forum app I've used ever. There's no way to find your old posts without searching for keywords you might have used. Why not include a "my posts" feature? Post summaries do not include date posted. Seriously, I cannot navigate this app. Absolutely counterintuitive in its design.
Great app. Great website. This has been a solid, dependable app. I haven't experienced any bugs. I have no complaints. The website content is good. I enjoy both website and app.
MEGA SLOW Very slow loading even at home over strong wifi, when I open the app the circle spins 10+ seconds(last use of app the day before).
Android lover If you have an android phone and want to find out about then this is the app
So .... Pathetic I thought I would try and see how this app worked now, then I saw the arrogance of the developers comments to mine and others issues with their app, apparently they think it's divine, on other apps I'll spend time.
Can't sign in What gives? Since update I cannot sign into my account! Please help!
It's okay, I can usually find something interesting that I didn't know about things Android.
Good Makes pooping more entertaining and informative.
something in the app is broken when i press on forum links while in a article it does not take me to the forum i hope this gets fixed in the next update
What the heck... Bring back the green and purple!!! Or give options for the theme. I do not like this dark blue grey whatever it is.... Yes change the Colors every month heck why not do it weekly or even daily. You are high.
Nice I usually don't use apps for news but I love this app. Really nice job
Bump - Top Panel STILL doesn't scroll... The animated panel with featured stories has never worked properly. Please fix it or remove it!
Android Central The Best Props to Mobile Nations for continously fixings bugs and updating the app as per viewers need, it has become my go to source for android news.
Great but something broke in last update Unable to open HTC 10 forums. Goes to open and nothing happens. Think it's more then just the HTC one
Thanks for a great app! Very helpful app. Love asking questions here because I know that they will be answered. Got a number of puzzles solved with the help of the AC community. Thanks for making this happen right from my phone. ?
Can't see emoji Emoji show up as emoji then the number. Example [emoji14] on posts.
Fixed New version seems to have fixed bugs.. Like it.
Not the #1 Android community as the description claims but other than that it's a good app.
Informative Everything mobile and more.
AC has become useless now. Re Edit: Yeah. Combining everything to increase number of posts. It's not Android Central, it's all of your Mobile Nations apps in one. Downloaded Android Authority, haven't opened AC since then. Good bye
Good Good app I like Dark Mode keep up the Good work and the updates coming Can you make videos play in app thanks no swipe throw stories glitchy menu scrolling Sam S3
Literally the new app seems faster..... Like the new update, looks really nice but I would be great if the night mode was enhanced a bit as even in night mode its too bright to read.
Waste of time.. Slow, slow to load. You have actually made it worse. Can't post, or it freezes. Gonna have to delete, if you don't improve performance. It's woeful. Nexus 5 on stock android.
Takes forever to load Sometimes freezes my phone same with the windows central app. Why d Imore app is so much better still remains a wonder to me
The articles are good but cant read the comments , neither does it let me make an account..keeps on loading and loading!! Please fix it
Waste app nothing more updates except about Samsung phones No new much updates always only about s6 or s7 or other Samsung phone updates
Needs work First I am still getting duplicate thread postings in the forums. It is so annoying. But worse is there are features of the website not even present in the app. Things like private message notifications. Also I can only attach one photo per post with the app unlike the website. Why? This shouldn't be an issue. This app needs more attention paid to it as these issues have been present for a very long time without being addressed.
Takes forever to refresh. Circle spins for at least 10 to 20 seconds before it refreshes. This happens on wifi or 4G. Love the app though. Hope this gets fixed in a future update. Thanks for all the hard work.
In new version 2.6.7 I'm getting Cache Size UNAVAILABLE Certain screen transitions seem faster but getting cache size UNAVAILABLE. Tried powering off and on two devices. Still get same thing. FYI.
News Slide On Home Page Doesn't Slide! Not a bad app...however the news slide at the top of the home page doesn't slide! You put your finger on the image and move it from right to left..you see the next item but it snaps back to the first item! It doesn't matter how slow or fast you do it, it doesn't work. I couldn't find a contact you listed..there was a tip us link, is this the thing that should be used?? Perhaps not, so where do you contact you directly??
Great Resource for All Things Android News, rumors, accessories, user support and advice - you want it, you got it. Great all around app.
Great Love this app! Can be faster.
Just got my S7 loaded this app, and not happy. Images take forever to load and the quality of images in the forums are terrible. Why?
Great app! Works great and I will always have it on my devices.
Now with Search! All the Lloyd stuff under one icon.
Sloooowww.... Refresh on this app is slower than the OP2 marshmallow update.
Fantastic app! Read it daily and great source for all things droid :-) p.s. I can now search :D
Good content app annoys me The content is the same as on the web site, and is informative and entertaining. But my review is about the Android app, which is annoying. My big gripe is that my preferences are not retained. The font is too small and text contrast insufficient for these old eyes. I must reset it for large text and dark scheme each time I open the app. The latter restarts the app. Slows me down when responding to an article notification. Shouldn't be this way.
Takes forever to update Whether on good 4G or fast Wi-Fi it often takes over a minute to update. So my screen blanks and phone locks.
Feedback The staff is constantly patting themselves on the back and taking kickbacks from OEM's for totally biassed reviews.
So nice I like it.....Thanks mobile nations team.
MEGA SLOW Very slow loading even at home over strong wifi, when I open the app the circle spins 10+ seconds(last use of app the day before).
To many animations. When scrolling through a thread in the forums, each individual post highlights green. Please stop this, it's very annoying.
Best app ever! **no and then ** Lots of great info and runs smoothly. A must have for Android fans. I did answer all those questions in the email I sent you with the screenshot if the pop up message. **no and then ** **... and then* **no and then ** **no and then **
Nice app Very nice app, but I can't post anything ? Nexus 6P, Android N beta
Crashing Keeps crashing when I open a link from G+
Everything you'll need to be informed about Android Awesome
Cannot search in forums On my Nexus, I can't post. On my S7 Edge, I can't search the forums for keywords. On both, I have to open the browser anyway.
Please fix Why can't I search once I am in the forum I like? I want to search subjects within a specific forum. I don't see any search options for that.
Update glitchy.... Won't really open and there's a lot of crashes and sometimes random times of "Android Central has stopped working, want to Close?"
I love android center apps.happy with it
Informative and fun!
Android news and politics don't mix Every Sunday you get an editorial that almost always includes a political jab at Republicans... Yes you heard that right. In traditional newspapers it is normal to have a political editorial filled with the opinions of the writers but it doesn't fit with a tech news site. It is too bad because they do a great job with Android news and the app is decent too.
Brilliant app This is the best app on the play store for andriod news.
Love it! Everything you want to know about Android and more!
Improved. Finally ,this app is smooth and has improved big time .
Great app Can't wait for the secret feature! App still keeps getting faster!
Love it Totally a useful app
Takes ages to load! I have tried 3G, 4G, WiFi for this app, but I don't know what type of Internet speed this app needs! It takes a lot of time to load! Unfortunately, I don't have that much patience, uninstalling.
Bad update. When I try to comment it tells me I need to sign in or create a new account? New update seems to have signed me out I guess.. and when I try to go to "Account" to sign back in just gives me a swirly thing and locks up. I have to force close it.
That's great... Thanks... Now everything running great.. I must say to people who is reading this , if you want to know about mobiles or if you want that app that will give you the information about new mobiles , software, etc. then you should try Android Central..
Awesome! Nice nine inch nails reference! App is great. Keep it up.
Galaxy S III Very informative all things Android.
Love the app but hate the new icon... Pls change it.
Crashes immediately upon opening Won't let me open any links in the app. Immediately crashes.
Great mobile version of AC Great job with this app guys. It's buttery smooth, very easy on battery, and has all the features of the full site. The aesthetics are nice and cohesive as well. This is miles ahead of the half-assed apps from other Android websites.
Pretty terrible Can't upload more than one image per post, no way to search previous posts, no notification on posts you've commented on.
Was great, becoming slow over time This app worked great at first, but slowly over time it's becoming slow. When once I could click on a story and immediately read it, now takes several seconds to load. When once I could click the "mark all read" button and have all the unread stories marked as read, now takes upwards or ten seconds to mark all as read. Pretty frustrating.
Frustrating me I have to keep loging out and back in before it will let me post to the forum. It was doing this on my Note 5 so I uninstalled and reinstalled the app. No change. Received my new Note 7 and I'm having the same issue. Very frustrating, I love AC but this app is killing me here. Edit: Thanks for fixing the login issue. Love this site and the forum.
Update not workung Note 5 and note 7. Go to the forums and select favorites or participated and it reflect nothing there. Go to accounts and I am "logged in" but it is apparent that I am not. Log out and log back in and it works do a little while, than stops once I exit and go back into the app. Use to work go e now it is crap. Update 8/24/16. Works great now. Thanks for the fix. Upgrade to 5 stars.
Still keeping phone awake. Since unplugged phone 4 hours ago, app has keep phone awake 40 mins but not even used it! Going to have to remove and use website if something is not done. Any advice on how to fix? Btw on 6.0.1 update: nothing changes nearly 3hr today and not used the app
Was Android... Now Pokémon Central I'm uninstalling because it's all about one game. Ridiculous. Update: they listened. I re-installed it!
Note7 aka #ScratchGate Best Android info app. Thanks for clearing up that nasty bug fellas.
Useless Tried this app around a year ago... Crashing most of the time and sucked the battery dry.... So I thought I would try again... App now crashes every time... Even their website is slow to load, it's mostly advertising...
Content not what it was Miss the old editing staff, getting close to deleting the app and moving on.
Not updating on wifi None of the Mobile Nations apps are updating content on wifi. Nexus 6P on 7.0 (NRD90M).
Great Best way to keep up with news and get help.
Can't open the app after up date
Good update Keeps me up to date on android updates
Good Getting a lot of CPU wakelocks.
Slow slow slow
Good content, app works well I subscribe to a coupling of Android sites. While many sites carry the same news items, AC imbues the news with some personality, making news releases informative and entertaining. The app is a little slow to refresh for new articles compared to some others, but it is solid.
Nothing but Poke'-**** news here. Move along. Used to be a great site for Android news and in-depth reviews of hardware. They clearly have been bought out by companies interested in hocking there software and hardware. Scrolling through this news feed is nothing more than a never ending commercial for all things Poke'-**** and cheap cases. After many years of being a loyal member of this community they have forced me, and MANY others like me, to move on.
Sign in issues Can't use the app without having to sign in every time I try and comment. I can't find you on G+. I'm on there.
Cant post. Says I'm not logged in when I go to post in forums yet under the account page I'm clearly logged in.
Can't post Frequently need to uninstall and reinstall to post a reply. Get error that I'm not logged in or don't have permission. Very annoying
Bugs in latest update With the last update I can no longer post comments, tells me I need to log in when I already am. I use an S7.
I constantly gotta sign in and out Was working fine until the new update I constantly got a sign in and sign out it's so annoying that I actually erase this app
Love the App But.... I'm frustrated. I can hardly post because it keeps logging me out when I'm already logged in.
Want to start a account to make comments BUT... Not sure why "Android" Central doesn't have the proper account sign in for Google. I just don't trust any app that makes me put in my Google password to sign in to create a account. Not sure why this is but I won't start a account til it's fixed. Still great Android info, reviews and articles...
Extreme Left Wing Politics Android Central used to be the place to come for the latest and greatest Android news. Android Central actually felt like a community that was until a Phil Nickinson decided to inject his left wing, anti republican politics into the mix. Not only did Phil get into the political mix but some of his writers got very nasty and mean with anyone that had an opinion that differed from theirs. The comments sections deteriorated into nothing but arguing and insults. The end result, republicans got banned from A.C.
Update glitchy.... Won't really open and there's a lot of crashes and sometimes random times of "Android Central has stopped working, want to Close?" Basically unusable and I can't even open new articles
Solid app but one small thing It's very hard to swipe the trending news at the top. It starts out swiping fine but part way mistakes the action as a "pull down to refresh" no matter how carefully you do it. Pretty much have to swipe diagonally upwards which doesn't feel very natural :/
Problems updating feed Clearing the cache fixed this problem but it continually recurs. I don't have this problem with the nearly identical Android Authority app, for what it's worth (I prefer the content on this one though).
Great app. Great website. This has been a solid, dependable app. I haven't experienced any bugs. I have no complaints. The website content is good. I enjoy both website and app. By the way, I love reading the 'what's new' area here in the app store just for the off the wall comments in the release notes. This week there are the lyrics to 'where is my mind,' by the Pixies. Cool.
Battery hog What is it about this app that makes it show up at the top of the list of my battery hogs? Right after screen usage. I like the content but feel like I'm going to have to uninstall. One star for battery hogging, one bonus star for content.
A children's blog about Android. Used to be a quality tech site with good leaks and informative news. Now all they post is children's games, the same info you can get by walking into your local big box retail store, and overpriced phone accessories. Mobile Nations destroyed it all. The 3 richest guys calibrated and sucked it all up for the money, everyone else followed suit. You put you time in, now it's time to get paid. $$$$ or leave and get back to your roots.
Sloooooow To be fair, the content is three stars, but the speed to download the content is completely unacceptable. The app takes 3 minutes to open on my phone (it is blazing fast on my tablets taking between 1 1\2 and 2 minutes to open). ALL other news related apps take less than 2 seconds; so WHY DOES AC TAKE SO LOOOONG???
Too much Pokemon Time to set this app out to pasture. It's been overtaken by Pokemon articles, which I don't really care about. Will look elsewhere for actual Android news.
Keeps phone awake constantly! This app was keeping my phone awake almost constantly. Took me awhile to figure out which app it was and I finally found it! It was this app. It had held my phone awake for 29 minutes and I had only used the app for a minute or so. So I uninstalled. Running 6.0.1
Pokemon Too much Pokémon lately. And I don't understand why I need to disable push notifications each time the app updated. Uninstalled.
Mod arrogance There is a wealth of knowledge here but the mods are extremely arrogant and if you do not share the same opinions you will have your posts deleted and banned. Jerry, who seems to run the show is awesome though. If not for some of the mods i would give this app 5 stars
Discovered through the podcast The podcast is always amusing and informative. That doesn't always translate into a great application. Thankfully with this app that's not the case. If you're an Android fan and want informative articles and want to listen to a highly recommended podcast. I suggest installing this app. Keep it up Android Central.
This was more informative with Phil Now that Phil is no longer with AC it seems to have less information that is impartial. Phil would answer emails personally, now that he is gone there is no response to any emails that I have sent.
A#1 Best Android news and review site and app!
Pretty good. Favorite place to get all my android news and articles.
Wonderful and black Very glad real black was introduced. It not only looks much better, it allows for battery savings. Thanks!
Back to five stars Thanks for the support, beta fixed it.
Its better now... I really don't know what happened to AC, used to be an awesome source for android news, then it mostly became clickbait junk or they were a few days behind other sources like android police or android authority. In some cases no new relevant articles for days at a time. Its making a comeback I have to say, but I still miss the AC of 2015.
Much happier now Previously they included a lot of political opinion in the Sunday editorials but for the last few months they seem to have changed things up for the better. Now it is mostly Android and tech news as you would expect. They do a great job with it and the app has been great for me.
Quality problems increasing Looks like this app is getting a little unreliable. Posting comments to articles doesn't work and selecting "feedback" in settings is just a renaming of the "share" option. Combined with the decline in the quality of writing and information reporting Android Central is becoming irrelevant.
Thank you so much for this amazing app. What I like most about it is the offline feature. Once I'm online I update the information then once home I read. Really appreciate it. Especially with the very slow connection out here
Same Stories, Hoping to read something new, but no, same old stories. Note 7 news, every other article! Boring!!!
Yes I love it Get all the up to the date Android news here, with videos and great tips great format easy to read and to navigate. Keep up with the good work, thank you! From my magnificent Samsung Note 7
Dang Not the same ANDROID site I used to love. Wish other Android sites had this app and widget.
Soooooooo slow App is great except for the fact that it takes 60-90 seconds to refresh the news feed. Sometimes longer.
Great place for Android news They've made some major improvements as of late. Android Central is the place to go for all the latest Android news.
Much more balanced news. Keep up the great work. Love the site again.
Favorite news app I check this app everyday and there is always great and new info on Android related stuff
Good Getting a lot of CPU wakelocks by wake:com.androidcentral.app/com.google.firebase.iid.FirebaseInstanceIdService
Slick UI. Looks and works great. Especially love the "true" dark mode (hex black).
Waiting for the lg v20 make it asap
