A note about MacDailyNews site and app performance

Apple Online StoreRegarding the performance (or lack thereof) of MacDailyNews.com and the MacDailyNews app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch:

Our traffic is growing rapidly and demand from a growing list of devices continues to increase. We are acutely aware of the issues and we have been working on and investing in solutions for some time now.

All will be revealed soon.

Thank you for your patience and for patronizing our advertisers without whom MacDailyNews could not exist,

MacDailyNews Webmaster


  1. How about not pretending that we don’t know what the REAL slowdown is caused by…

    the wall-to-wall Flash-based advertising on macdailynews.com

    Hey, MDN, maybe it’s time to start offering the advertisers a little discount if they submit their ads in HTML5?

  2. I too am glad to hear you are aware of the problem. I am so tempted to delete the MDN App from my iOS devices, it’s so unreliable it’s more of a digital paperweight than a useful App.

    MDN, can you at least give us a hint as to what you are planning? You’re not Apple Inc., why the secrecy?

  3. Thank you for the acknowledgement. I really want to love the app, but I am forced to delete and reload it 2-3 times per week, due to the log-in bug.

    This makes it impossible to save stories as favorites.

    Also, it is very irritating when the app loads blank pages.
