I purchased 12 months of no ads and All of the stories are gone. Nothing will show on the main page. The forums and podcast all show, but the main stories

So I scrolled down through the last six days of stories, and I saw the ad for asking me to install Facebook 24 times. I don't mind the ads, but does it have to be the same one over and over again? It reminds me of Hulu.

I realize that ads are probably necessary in the app. Would it be possible to shade them differently by any chance? I think that would really help the flow and help to make browsing articles easier.

+Mike Wolfson​ the newest update seems to have broken the account function. I can't find any of my participated threads and can't see any saved articles. I deleted app data and tried again, but no luck.

+Mike Wolfson​ I received the updated on Saturday I think. Today I watched the app and I'm still having Wakelock issues... 😶🙁

I went to post on my last post, but the G+ app has a one picture limit.

+Mike Wolfson​ I don't think this is a problem with the app, but I'm not sure. I went to the forums tonight and noticed that my account wasn't logged in. I decided to click on the account button to sign myself in (automatically) and I received this error.

I, uh, don't remember this part from Huawei's new "brand video" this morning. Full thing here: https://twitter.com/HuaweiMobile/status/771384652410064897

Moto G4 Plus sharing to Hangouts causes a force close. This particular share was sharing to a contact via sms using my Google Voice number. It works if I send it a a regular Hangouts message.

Thanks for the detailed report. Looks like an issue on the Hangouts side, but will definately look into it.

Bought the 12 month option, and then there were no articles for about five minutes of loading and reloading the app. And today, the stories are there, and so are the ads again.

But that's why we beta test things.

+Pat Coleman that shows the general change log, but not the specific log for the individual beta updates, at least not as far as I can tell.

I like Android Central app a lot but I'm not a big fan of the full screen ads. I don't mind the where is says sponsored/ad content in-between the list of articles on the homepage, but when swiping from article to article and then a full screen ad shows up, I don't like that at all (what is this, a free-to-play Android game or something?)

They're just too in your face. I'm all for making money :P but I think there is a better way, maybe a one-time $1-2 in-app purchase (or you could call it a "donation") and that purchase would get rid of the ads within the app.

+Isidoro Castell Yes that's what I would prefer, especially if it will be a one-time in-app purchase (so then I could easily pay via Google Play credit)

Trying to install the app on my moto g4 play and it says I was removed from the beta program and it won't let me install the app

Just double checked, and we have "Open Beta" - which means anyone can join the beta (used to be invite only, no "open" option was available).

At any rate, you could un-enroll I suppose, and they try to re-enroll at: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.androidcentral.app

In latest version 3.1.1 when tapping the 'Mark all read' button the app is crashing. I'm using HTC 10. Worked OK in previous versions.

Not sure if this is just because I'm running the beta version of the app but when I try and open an article it takes anywhere between 6 and 10 seconds before an article opens. Takes about the same time for the article list to refresh once I leave whatever I was reading.

Side comment, love the new "Core" filter! Can you make sure the podcast listing shows up for the "Core" filter as it's not right now and I know it's usually Mr Bader that posts them. Thanks for all the hard work on the app, it gets better with every release.

Its slow every time.  When I change the listing to "Core" everything runs faster.

+Mike Wolfson​ I downloaded Wakelock and found this information on the app. I realize it isn't particularly descriptive, but this is what I see.

The problem I've been having isn't with the number of wakelocks by the AC app, but the time it holds the phone awake.

Yeah, I was curious so I went through the setup. I was surprised it worked TBH.
