This new release of the IGN app brings a hoard (horde?) of improvements and new features as well as a brand new design! Among them:

- We made special efforts to make browsing content and watching video even faster than before.
- Game help, reviews, movie, tv and tech content is now much easier to find. Just keep swiping to adjust your filters.
- We do a much better job at letting you know what's new and what you've already seen. Although if you want to read it again, we're ok with that...
- Our new content history and save for later features will help you keep track of things you want to, you know, read later. Referencing a particular wiki often? Save it. Learn. Win.
- Our videos now support skippable ads (when we're allowed to do so).
- Pro multi-tasker? Now you can watch video and continue to read other content at the same time with our new "floaty" player.
- Want a quick look at a video, but don't want your boss or teacher to notice? You can now mute all video playback by default for super-secret stealth viewing and just tap to unmute.
- Want to browse reviews without the score spoiled up front? You can "mute" those, too.
- Want IGN content on your home screen? You can do that now, too, with our new Today Screen widget. Also, we like people like you.
- Plus a whole lot more: theater mode for video, vastly improved slideshows, native wiki and game help content... and so much more!

Thank you for using the IGN App!

Version 4.5.11

Happy birthday to us!

IGN turns 20 this month and we wanted to celebrate with a new version of the app and some amazing new stickers for iMessage. You'll find birthday cakes, sticker-ized faces for your favorite IGN personalities, all of our review scores and much more. Now you, too, can 7.9 your friends and Brap! Brap! your enemies.

We've also made articles even zippier and added new media options like slideshows and in-article playlists.

But, let's be honest... it's mostly about the stickers.

Guardians out!

Jul 29
2016
Version 4.5.10

In this release you’ll find the following goodness:

* We fixed an issue with the handset muted switch overriding audio control in-app.
* We’ve added the ability for our AU and UK teams to more effectively tune content for their regions.
* We’ve resolved two crash bugs with our wiki pages and video player.
* Some articles should now load more quickly.

Thank you for using the IGN App!

Jun 01
2016
Version 4.5.9

In this release we have focused on cleaning up some crash and display bugs for a more stable performance overall. Notable fixes include:

• Resolved the issue with some autoplaying videos interrupting pre-existing audio streams.
• Resolved an issue with accidental ad clicks when scrolling through the feed too quickly.

Also, due to user feedback, we have added an on/off switch for autoplaying videos in the feed.

Thanks again for using the IGN App!

Apr 25
2016
Version 4.5.8

A faster app experience and few fixes and clean-up in this release:

• We're working with Twinprime to make the IGN app even faster with their tech now available in this version of the app.
• Fixed a display issue with some long headers plus some design clean-up.
• Removed (yes, you heard right -- removed) some advertising from the app.
• Made disclaimers on some of our remaining ads more clear.

Thanks, as always, for using the IGN app!

Mar 04
2016
Version 4.5.7

This new version contains a number of bug fixes (full list provided below), but most notably we're working to remove ads which auto-play with video and sound while in the IGN app. Many of our providers have worked with us to remove these ridiculously annoying ads, but we've also gone so far as to limit or even remove partners who can't abide by our guidelines. This should hopefully lead to a smoother experience within the IGN app overall.

Other issues handled as part of this release include:
• Improved the app's ability to handle rogue, auto-playing ads.
• Fixed a crash bug that sometimes occurs after a video plays.
• Several updates and fixes were made to our TV metadata which means it's now even easier to find content on television shows within the app.
• Fixed an issue that prevented sign out.
• Updated several SDK dependencies. This should be transparent to most folks, but ensures the app's ability to continue to run smoothly.

Jan 14
2016
Version 4.5.6

All, just a couple of quick fixes and updates to the app with this release:

* Fixed an issue with YouTube videos not working properly in some circumstances.
* Fixed an issue where some images were shown in the wrong aspect ratio.
* Fixed an issue where the Reviews filter would not show some content types.
* Fixed some small spelling and syntax issues.

Thank you for using the IGN App!

Nov 09
2015
Version 4.5.5

This update is focused on improving the stability and experience of the IGN iOS app. We’re recently become aware of some users experiencing video ads autoplaying in the background while browsing content which is COMPLETELY not our desire. We’re actively working with Google (the provider of these ads) on finding a way to shut them off and hope to have this issue resolved ASAP.

Other fixes and changes:

• For folks using the personalized MyFeed feature, duplicate stories in the feed should now no longer be an issue.
• Sharing content on iPad no longer crashes the app.
• Comment counts on content should now reflect reality. We still long for a return to our fantasy world, however.
• You can now use native iOS copy / paste functionality within the app.
• Video pre-roll ads can now be paused.
• Numerous bugs squashed and memory leaks plugged which should reduce the number of crashes. A little over 99% of our sessions are crash free but that’s still 1% of you that aren’t experiencing the app the way we intended. We’re very sorry for that and will always endeavor to get as close to 100% uptime as possible.

Version 4.5.1

All, we're aware of the two major issues which are affecting many of you: the white screen on content load and some ads acting much more "sticky" than they should be (and taking you out of app).

Here's what this version (v4.5.1) contains:
