New mobile version on ipad is awful... What I used to do with 1 tap now takes 3. Have option in settings for desktop view.

New mobile view on my iPad not nearly as good as old desktop view. For example, marking all articles read in a feed now takes 3 taps instead of one. Generally it all requires more tapping which is unnecessary because the iPad has plenty of screen real estate.

Why not give user a choice of views by having a desktop view option in settings? Desktop view worked great on iPad until your most recent update

        The switch back button doesn't work! I hate this version. Why can't you just leave tablet users alone? It takes 3 to 4 clicks to answer a message and it is so slow it's like remedial typing

        All of a sudden I cannot switch from the new version of aol mail (which I hate) on my Ipad to the old version. I used to be able to go to settings and then there was an option to switch back. Going back to my Gmail account if this continues!!!

        Will leage the aol reader if ipad Version and links are Not working again. This is too much limitation for users. Pls Update the Status at least.

        Click on the article link to be taken to a new tab to read the full article. Doesn't do anything.

        This new version is awful! After choosing aol reader i'm thinking about changing it back for other reader.

        Really?! Taking up the left quarter of the iPad screen for a menu???!!! Change the iPad version back! All it needed was the ability to change the list font size.

        The three pane, desktop version, is good on iPad. Significantly superior to the latest release.

        It is! At least give us option to switch to desktop version! Or iPad version application please?

        This was fixed in the other feedback item but now it's back with still no option to switch to non mobile. I'm guessing you're going responsive but this is not working. Links also don't seem to work.

        The iPad shouldn't be treated like an iPhone - please restore the old functionality.
