Slew of media app updates released before the weekend
The weekend is upon us – it’s about time, right? – and that means developers want to make sure their apps up are bug free, or as free as they can be considering a new version of iOS was recently released.
Here is the rundown:
NYT Cooking: First update since the release of iOS 10 and claims to be a big one (looks that way, too).
“Along with now being iOS 10 compatible, we are rolling out a new and improved homescreen and updated search tool!” the app description says. “Our new homescreen will better show-off our beautiful recipe images, and will now showcase our daily favorites with our Recipe of the Day. Swipe right to see recipes we have previously featured, and scroll down to see the latest from our cooks. In addition, we’ve improved our search function to mirror the experience on our website. No more confusion.”
Also, a note that this will be the last update to support iOS 8.
Pandora: The music streaming service has decided to change its logo and add a couple of features. One thing the app description asks users to do, which is pretty brazen. “Whenever you run out of skips or want to replay a track, just engage with an ad.”
ESPN: Bug fix update that deals with issues with push notifications and a logging out issue.
Scribd: Minor bug fix for the eBook app. The previous update from earlier this week repeated much of the same app description as the previous update, which repeated much of the same app description as the previous update, etc. etc. It’s a bad trend, one the owner of this app needs to do something about.
