The Verge iOS 7 iPhone app update in the pipeline?
I am a huge fan of the verge and 90% of my reading is done on the iPhone. A lot of iPhone apps have updated to support iOS 7 but the verge remains firmly in iOS 6 land.
The number one thing thing that kills me is the fact that it doesn't have swipe to go back. It makes reading so much easier and is probably one of the most fundamental features of iOS 7. It increases efficiency when reading and saves that reach for the back button.
Another less important feature that would really help it would be background refresh. If it could refresh its articles in the background it could save a huge amount of time. I open the app probably once every 45 minutes and each time I have to wait 2-5 seconds for it to refresh. Imagine the amount of time to save.
It is also interesting to note that currently that the date is nonfunctional in the forum.
Hopefully something is in the pipeline. I sometimes wonder if The Verge app is one of those apps that gets released and then never updated although it is at version 1.1.5. I really don't care if has iOS 7 styling although that would be a bonus.
What do you want to see updated?
P.S. iPad version too :)
