Although I am new to the forum, I have also been reading articles without an account for months.

Today, I signed up for an account. I have downloaded the stack exchange app and have noticed that it hasn’t been updated for the new screen style of the iPhone X and above. As an iPhone 11 Pro user, this is very frustrating. So, is there an update in the works for a better experience. In my option, not having updated the app in 3 years is unacceptable for a forum app.

Does anyone else think that this is completely ridiculous?

This is officially .

We are not providing any further support for the mobile apps. There will not be any more builds made for either the Android or the iOS app (even for breaking bugs). We encourage all mobile users to use the responsive website. We hope to continue to incrementally improve the user experience for mobile users.

    I don't know whether to upvote this in support of your opinion, or downvote in protest at the official stance. – Tetsujin Aug 9 at 16:21
  • @Tetsujin It's not my opinion. I've clearly quoted the developers response. – DavidPostill Aug 9 at 16:28
  • and frankly, there's a few things in my workflow, like notifications that don't work without the app, so \o/, maybe they'll change their mind in 6-8.... – Aibobot Aug 9 at 16:29
  • @DavidPostill - I meant the 'unacceptable'… that's the bit I do agree with :P I've known for a long time that they've effectively killed the app. "View it in your mobile browser". Nope, not gonna be doing that, tyvm. When the app eventually becomes completely unusable, I will simply stop accessing SE from my mobile. Simple as that. – Tetsujin Aug 9 at 16:45
