The official AOL app for managingemail and getting the latest news
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.
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.
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.

Love aol been with you for many year's
Ever since the last update I cannot get in to check my messages! Don't know what to do, very frustrated. This was a 5 star app before the update but not anymore!
I love this app.
Great and easy to use
Works well for HTC
Pretty problem free for me, have used it on HTC and Samsung phones. The interface is plain but original and sending and receiving emails is simple. The only thing I advise is to cut down the amount of news feed and notifications! Bit top heavy on that. Otherwise a long overdue email app for and by AOL.
