"AOL, officially"

Reviewed by / Apr 07, 2015

The official AOL app for managingemail and getting the latest news

THE VERDICT

The official app of the popular portal AOL keeps the essence of its web by providing a single access point to news, media, search engine and e-mail client. Either if you are already an AOL user or if you haven't heard about it until now, you might find it handy and useful equal parts. The idea behind is powerful: you don't need to use too many apps to enjoy those service. AOL believes you need a portal from where you search, check email and get the latest news right from its frontpage.

THE PROS

Hands down, its all-in-one approach if its strongest point along with the reliability that years of existence in the Internet industry gives to it. Navigation is unbeatable: a bottom dock with 4 icons to access e-mail, articles, videos and search engine. News and media curation is excellent, its email client is full-featured (includes gestures and classic organizational features) and the search engine won't look strange: it's almost a replica of Google.

THE CONS

It needs an added-value feature to attract new users. As of today, it looks like a simple client for (already) AOL users. Some articles are chopped in the app which forces you to read it from the web version.

    The email for both me and my wife has been AWOL for the last several days. Has always been flaky but this is ridiculous.

    You have to now open the app to get emails. It used to "push" mails. You always have to manually zoom in to all mails, it doesn't automatically resize mails to make them readable.

    It has been a nice add to this to my phone. Aside from the news feed updating, my email stays updated and it opens clearly on my phone.

    Have to delete email several times. Will delete email but it returns to my inbox several times as new email arrives. Also, doesn't remember spam have to move email to spam multiple times before it is gone for good. The only reason i keep the app is because it is still more convenient than logging on through website.
