AOL mail update stinks!!!
I have had compuserve mail for many years. Never noticed any differences with the merge into AOL. Loved getting email on my iPhone. Loved the AOL mail app for many reasons. It was fabulous! The last update made it a real P.I.T.A.! Every time I turn around I have to log in again. I spend more time logging in than I do communicating! In the past, I logged on once and it was active till I logged off! I expect to be required to log in on device that is public, and love the auto log out on those devices. But my personal iPhone, with finger print login to use it, I have no problems with others logging into my email. I don’t care a lot about others seeing my email, but I appreciate the auto locking features of public devices, but on a finger print locked device, why make it a mandatory feature? As a plea to AOL, please either go back to what it was, or add an option to let the individual choose! As it is, I am going looking for an app that lets me stayed logged in!
While I was on a train
When the second time had started the score was 0:1 over France. I watched iit on a huge screen of the Marriott Marquis hanging over the Times Square. I went live on my Facebook to share podcast with my friends all over the world; cheering for our team to win. In a second i felt really connected to the world, while reporting, messages started coming into my eyes from everywhere. The Marquis wanted to know what room am i staying in, my friends wanted to show them my surroundings, that’s when my office had called asking when i return ; -“ it’s Friday, you know, everyone wants to go home!” Well, i wished a great weekend to my viewers, wrapped up and dove into the Subway. The 2 train got a reroute at the Chambers and went straight to Cortland. I got off, went straight and up to my office, wished a great weekend to my colleagues came down on the street and right there, standing beneath the great Father of the nation i got this message what i’ve wished for from “America On Line” - “We won!”...
Inability to leave sign in feature on.
1. Within the last month I have experienced issues which occurred the last time I was hacked. Same font and same window. Now each time I sign in it automatically signs me out if I leave it on it switch to another app on my iPhone or iPad. This makes me believe that someone else is using my accounts. And my other account will not open either. I have attempted to contact aol but they only give assistance to paid members. I have been a member since the beginning and as a retiree from aol/TW have never been forced to pay. 2. I have too much mail and would like to select mail and mass delete as I could if I had a computer. But I no longer have one. When I inquired about a change in the app I was told it can’t be done and to use a computer. Sorry I can’t give a better review at this time because I love aol. But I no longer feel safe or able to get assistance. Possibly you as the developer can do something and notify aol members.
So Many Problems Lately
I’ve had AOL for decades and everything was reliable up until the last 6-12 months. At some point AOL mail within the general iOS email app would disappear, would have to reload ALL the old email once it finally managed to reconnect, and then would still be unreliable when sending as some things would seem to go but actually just be shoved into a drafts folder while others would go out via one of my non-AOL accounts without me realizing what had happened. Did all the usual things to try and address the issue to no avail. Seemed to be something at the other end and not on these devices. So I turned to this AOL app hoping I’d overcome some of these obstacles with the iOS general email app but this app is glitchy and unreliable with the issues others here have mentioned...having to log back in each time, etc. I really hope these issues are fixed. I’ve been very happy with AOL and didn’t jump ship for things like gmail when many others did but I can’t imagine sticking around in the AOL eco system much longer with it becoming as unreliable as it has lately. Really do hope these issues are fixed soon.
No endings to news articles
I’ve really loved using the AOL app for a while now to get my emails and read the news. However, for while now I’ve noticed a problem that at first I thought was just a fluke. But unfortunately, it’s been happening quite often now. News stories will be interrupted by an ad, and at the top of the ad it will say “scroll down to continue content” (or something similar) but when I scroll past the ad, there is no continuance of the article- just links to other articles. There should definitely be more content as sometimes sentences before the ad don’t even end. I’ve tried restarting my phone and updating the app, but it is still happening. Hope this is something that can be fixed soon- I’m dying to know the rest of the news!
Review of AOL news
Poorly organized website. Disjointed story lines ( frequent next page continuation of stories often never giving the story in the headline) and misleading headlines (frequently subject does not follow headline of story). Also, news is biased toward stories that reflect the philosophy and ideals of the liberal democrats or socialists’ view point. Much news is not reported except in a cursory or negative way when it involves a conservative subjective or President Trump. Opinions and impressions are often reported as facts which tries to lead the reader to think as you do which is either as a liberal democrat or a socialist ideologue. You are not a news organization when it comes to reporting political news but unfortunately a biased agency running a campaign supporting only the Democratic Party. You do not report on the conservative view point except to dismiss them as evil thinkers because they do not believe in identity politics, open borders or big federal/socialized government that knows better than the individual regarding how to take care of themselves. You do not promote independent thoughts. Sincerely, Veltman 510
Best email service in the world!
Ive been a loyal AOL customer since its beginning or in ‘95 anyways [not exactly sure what year they started]. In the last 28 years AOL has never crashed on me nor lost any data. Proof of that is in the fact I have over 150,000 emails that I still have access to. I know I'm fully guilty of never clearing stuff out but getting 500+ emails a day it adds up. The thing is too that it is so easy to place mail in different folders that they never screw up either. Ive read in a blog post that AOL is out-dated... so Ill try other email providers and keep coming back to AOL for news and keeping my mail for so long and consistently. I can’t say any other company on the web has a track record that perfect. Compared to yahoo, gmail, outlook, hotmail, etc. AOL is still the easiest, safest, fastest free email provider in the world.
Used to me my favorite
A little bit funny that one day all my e mails were blank. I had gotten a hint that someone might have hacked my mail but didn’t change my password. All my most important documents were on this trusted site. I am a basic over 60 person so it was easy to navigate the attachments were easy like I said it had all my data and personal records on it. I still feel like it was extortion sorry but one day everything is blank on my OC and my I phone. Apple with many hours of me freakingbout to recover mail told me it was the server. They were correct my other accounts g mail yahoo all working. We tried going through Safari but here is the creepy part. Call their Tec support number and you are routed to a person who promises to get you up and running AND lost e mail back for a monthly fee. Talk about making you a hostage a vulnerable moment. I still am livid now I don’t trust them. Long story of course I paid what a racket BUT they never got access in my phone working why? It’s the server!! I don’t walk around with a PC I use my phone. With promises to recover lost whitewashed mail ( something fishy) ok got that up but my phone what I really need access to, NOT working m. That’s not fixed for me to go through safari mail and type it in. It’s not private and it’s annoying. All other mail works. I paid FIX THE SERVER or refund my money!! I don’t think I will ever trust them again.
You cannot delete automatic added email addresses in your contact list on the mobile phone you can only do it on the desktop. Hello , This is Jeff guess I do need to redo my review I just kind of blurted out there kind a quick hotheaded sorry about that. If you don’t mind the next review is below👇. Hello I’m Jeff and my mine situation is that you cannot, at least that I know of delete any contacts from my mobile phone? That is incoming email address which I guess they are done by design and in addition the The ones that you manually put in yourself. I subscribe to lotta commercial emails or businesses with emails addresses and they And they drop down in my contacts automatically. So I googled and the way I Understood it was the only way to delete the contacts on the mobile phone was go to your laptop or home computer. I’m pretty sure I have a latest app. Other than that it’s a great tool to work with I love it but as I mentioned the more emails I get that drop down in there I just filling up, anyway Thanks for your time guys. Regards,
I have been an AOL user since the early 1980s - Leading Edge PC, dial up modem, switched from “Prodigy” - and have remained through some rough patches. The desk-top version works well and meets my needs fairly well. The app, however, appears to have been written by someone who never used the non-mobile version. The app does not seem to allow attachments that are not photos such as a pdf or word document. That is quite frustrating. There does not seem to be a way to access the ‘contacts’ list in my regular AOL account. Utilizing the icon accesses only the contacts on the phone. If there is a way to get to the main contact list it is not obvious. Moreover, the contacts that are on the app do not seem to be the same as the desktop version. There is more but these two are very aggravating. Back to the drawing board. Richard Vandiver
Love AOL email
For 15+ years I’ve been using Gmail. In fact, I have at least 10 different Gmail accounts. I would either use the different accounts for different purposes or I’d forget my password and create a new account instead of trying to figure out my forgotten password. A few months ago I finally got tired of the large amount of spam that I’d receive through my Gmail accounts and decided to find a different email provider. I absolutely LOVE AOL email! I haven’t received one piece of spam since switching from Gmail to AOL. This saves me so much time and frustration! Thanks AOL for your awesome free email service. I never thought that I would switch email providers but I’m so glad that I did.
I had previously rated the app four stars. I have come back to downgrade to two stars simply because I am truly aggravated with this app yet again. Every so often for some unknown reason the app just decides to sign me out. I will uninstall and reinstall the app to know avail then after doing this a good 287 or so times it will finally trigger and leave me signed in until another year or so passes and I have to go through the same thing again. I have other email carriers but this has and always will be my primary email. Those other email apps I check on a weekly and monthly basis. This one I check periodically throughout the day, so the constant need to sign in again several times on a daily basis is most upsetting. I hope there is a fix for this because I don’t know how long I can keep doing this before I am forced to make a switch.
App is getting worse, not better, with all the recent changes
Used to feel this was a good 4 star app. It’s worse now. All the recent changes are attempts to fix things that were not broken. Now the app signs me out on my iPhone and iPad, every 3 to 4 weeks and requires a tedious process for signing back in. Why? It’s not to protect my privacy or information because when I now sign in it wants me to disable cookie blocker and cross-site tracking. The app also now wants to use Safari on my iOS device, to sign in. Why? Other apps that require more security don’t do this. Perhaps most frustrating is that even after turning off cookie blocker and cross-site tracker blocker, the app keeps asking me to turn off the cookie blocker and won’t log me in. I have to go to Safari and log in there, then go back to the app and after a few tries it then logs me in.
What is this
Not very useful
Can read study well enough, but there is no way to attach anything other than pictures. If i want to attach files, i have to go to the safari version, which is a royal pain. (And no matter how we tried to fix it, it still doesn't work) Also, when you click on something in an email-say a story you are unable to go any further than that. What i mean is that say there is a link in a story you are reading in your inbox. It will not link to that sub story. You cannot mail a story you are reading to someone else. (Without forwarding the whole email which i do not want to do.) There is a lot that needs to be fixed to make this app work the way they think it does or that it needs to. Update: I was told the app can’t upload anything but pics. No mention they would work on that. This makes this app basically worthless. Including no mention of letting messages go further. They should not “sit on their laurels” as they are not laurels. Make this app do what it should and what other apps do. I wouldn’t bother downloading it until they do More update. Can it do a secondary click through. If I click on an email and within the email is further links you CANNOT go there. This app (and aol) is completely useless. I hate it.
