Version 14.2

Hello again dear readers! First, the bug fixes: In this release we have addressed an issue numerous readers wrote in about (thank you) that caused a “cannot decode” message to appear when trying to play certain videos. We have also done some work to help ensure that our app does not turn off music you were listening to when you open up HuffPost, and for iPhone X users, the status bar should now be visible whenever our app is open.

We have also built a new version of our alerts history page that bundles notifications by day and indicates which ones you have read so that you can more easily catch up on the biggest news. This version also restores universal links for US and international edition readers, meaning that if you tap HuffPost links from web searches or other apps, they will open in the HuffPost app so that you can bookmark them to read later or when offline.

Thank you, as usual, for your comments. If you have any issues to report or new features to request, please let us know at ios@huffpost.com. Thanks!
