Navigation issues on iOS 9 NewsBlur app (iPhone 5)

Noticing navigation issues using ios9 NewsBlur app with my iPhone 5. I’m able to scroll down to read some posts but not others. Anyone have a fix?


No fix but I am definitely having the same problem. Some posts scroll, some don’t. I end up having to open the page in safari to read it.

I am on iPhone 6S Plus so it doesn’t seem device-specific.

Me too. I was trying to figure out how to reproduce it and I haven’t yet.

I’m submitting the fix today. If you want to work around it, just double-tap, close the in-app browser, and you should be good again.

It’s caused by partially double-tapping but not fully double-tapping.

Thanks Samuel!

I have observed opening and closing the in-app browser to _not_ clear the problem.

What you need to do to work around this bug is double-tap in one place fast enough to trigger an action, then undo whatever action that was.  If you open the in-app browser via some other method that won’t necessarily help.

Hi… now that the holiday weekend is over… any idea when we’ll get this fixed-update? (I’m anxiously awaiting the fix :slight_smile: )

Yes, I’m working on all of the issues I could find after a deep dive this past week. I’m nearly done and will be submitting the app for review tonight.

Samuel: Much appreciated. The app on my two-year-old iPad is starting to experience similar problems too. I was on the beta program, but opted out thinking the monitoring app was the source of the problem. 

Nicholas: That approach has worked with some feeds on my end, but not others. Up to now, my user experience has been about as trouble-free as could be. I know Samuel has our backs, and NB will be well very soon.

Just got the new version that seems to have fixed the problem with scrolling up in an article, but now I seem to have a new problem. Every 10 stories or so (sometimes more sometimes less) I can’t swipe left to get the next story. I swipe and it starts to show the next story on the right, but no matter how far or how fast I swipe, I can’t bring the next story all the way over and as soon as I lift my finger it just snaps back to the current story. (I’m on an iPhone 6 with iOS 9.1)

Same here. iPhone 6S Plus with the current iOS 9.2 beta.

Tapping the next button will unstick things, but this does seem to be a new problem in 5.0.2.  I was able to find the culprit (here) so hopefully it won’t take too long to get a fix out.

Same problem here with iOS 9.

This new horizontal scrolling bug has been identified and now fixed. I will submit the fix to the App Store in the next couple days as I fix anything else that may have come up in 5.0.2.
