This app is just so flakey and unreliable. Regular freezing and blacking out. Ever since their refresh and relaunch it has been unreliable…. That and the increasing presence of intrusive advertising just makes me give up and stop contributing. Very poor effort Stuff.

Stuffed

Unbelieveable. I was thinking of ditching Stuff anyway because of your left leaning agenda, opinions scattered through the site from people who are generally men-haters and ads scattered throughout stories which drive me insane. Then you have the cheek to ask for 'contibutions'..... I'm out of here.

Upgrade to Stuff website seems to be a flop

Stuff is not working properly for any of us no matter which device we are using. When it is loading it just 'jumps around' all over the place and if we manage to load an article it jumps out of the article after only reading a couple of sentences and then bombards us with the Stuff logo and/or login page and/or adverts! Why 'upgrade' something that was working fine for everyone in the first place? Looking for an alternative news website - maybe Big Project News or something.

I can’t be the only person who is turning away in frustration at the difficulties getting stories to load on the new Stuff site. Guys, it’s been a week, and I’m about to give up and desert you forever. Please get this fixed - or at least let us punters know what’s happening.

Usually use Stuff on my iPad with little difficulty (occasional glitches). Since update a few days ago it is terrible. Can usually load one story but next will not load, reverts to purple logo endlessly whirring away. Have to shut down the app to load another story.

Stuff is stuffed

Stuff website is “stuffed”. Get purple screen with ‘S’ displayed forever. Happens on iPhone, iPad, MacBook pro. Tried with Firefox and Safari - no go. Cleared cache etc., still no go. Obviously they rushed the roll out of new format and failed to carry out any viable performance testing - probably skimpy unit and functional testing as well. Not good getting software tested in production. Stuff is stuffed.

I used to be able to access previous quizzes by searching for, e.g. "Quiz: Morning trivia challenge: August 22, 2023" then clicking on the result ... now all I get is "Access denied on this server". Ongoing for at least a month ... I guess they don't want people doing anything other than that day's quiz? :/
