Hey everyone! If you don't know me, my name is Alp! I'm the Product Support Specialist at BuzzFeed and I work with the Mobile Team as they develop the app.

I just wanted to let you know that, going forward, we want to make this page a little more active! I really want to foster a sense of community and I think discussions are a vital part of that! If you have trouble, a question or a comment, please feel free to post it here! I will also share news and updates from BuzzFeed from time to time :)

I would also like to say again how much we appreciate your help as we keep developing the app! We are very excited to grow the Beta testing program (if you have friends or family members who you'd like to add to our community, please let me know!) Again, please let us know your thoughts and feedback! (Feel free to email support@buzzfeed.com if you would like to share your thoughts privately.)

I have been getting this error trying to update the buzzfeed app... I have restarted my phone... Same error.

Other programs install just fine...

I will try to uninstall and then download later... I didn't feel like having to reset up the app... Lol!

Hey! So I don't know how it would work or anything but I've been wondering if when you click on a buzzfeed link somewhere other than buzzfeed, like Facebook or Twitter, like my screengrab here, that maybe under "complete action using" maybe the buzzfeed app could come under it? I'm sure it would direct more people towards the app, rather than going through chrome.

Hey Katie! Actually, all buzzfeed.com links would get the option to open it on the app! Unfortunately, if the link is shortened by Twitter, the Android system will not recognize it and there isn't anything we can do about that :/

Hey everyone!

Hope you are all doing well and are enjoying your day! (I also hope that everyone is staying warm!) 

I have a quick request from you: can you please go to this link below to fill out this form and agree to our Beta Testing Agreement? (It basically states that you will not share screenshots from or other info about the beta apps externally and that we can use your feedback to improve the app.)

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1fNj31-H2OQt1eS4DLP3sPv5Yio72QrdKihcS-daCrDg/viewform

If you have any questions or concerns about it, please let me know! I will be more than happy to answer them! 

Also, I hope that all of you are enjoying our new Android update! We have done a complete design overhaul of the app so that it is following the material design philosophy! As always, we are looking forward to your feedback!

Take a look at a video compilation BuzzFeed PR pulled together highlighting a bunch of big press moments in 2014! Since the clips are mostly people saying how much they love BuzzFeed, the title of the video is "BuzzFeed 2014: We Love You, Too !"

BOOP! You've all helped us make 2014 an amazing year for BuzzFeed! Fingers crossed for 2015! MAKING IT BIGGER AND BETTER!
BuzzFeed posts and videos were viewed over 21 billion times in 2014. Here's a round-up of more things that our readers made us grateful for last year.

Hey Beta Testers! We are changing how things work a little bit - we will be switching to a Facebook group for communicating instead. If you'd rather no join a Facebook group, you are more than welcome to stay as a beta tester! We just ask that you keep sending us feedback through the app if you see something wonky on the app! If you are interested in joining our Facebook group, please fill this form out: bit.ly/buzzfeedappbeta

Looking forward to seeing you there!

If I accidentally rotate the screen while taking a quiz, it resets all of my answers and I have to start over.

Can someone tell me why the app won't open but tells me it crashed? I've uninstalled and reinstalled, rebooted, all to no avail. Dammit beta, get your shit together

Hey, I don't know how often this is happening to anyone else but I keep clicking on links, and the page just won't load, or let me scroll down, no matter if I'm on 4G or wifi.

Something strange happened today. There was a promoted post about a "BuzzFeed 14 day butt and core challenge." It asked you to enter your email to sign up, but then when I did, a message popped up saying my email was invalid and asked me to click on a link to fix it. At the bottom of the screen was the message that this post was not sponsored by BuzzFeed. Seems fishy to me...

Some pictures are showing up too big and getting cut off. This isn't the first time I've seen it happen.

I'm having the problem again of getting bounced back to the beginning of an article if I open a different window and then go back. It seemed to be fixed for a while.

Ah. Yeah, unfortunately the main page issue is not a bug - as we keep pushing new content all the time, that page is meant to refresh. (I'll see if we can change getting pushed to the top though!)

Hey there! Been using the beta app for a while now and have noticed this sort of thing quite a lot - different characters instead of apostrophes etc - anyone else having this issue?
