Are any ask.com (iPhone app) users having a problem with:
"Browsing by Connection" ?
When I press this option, I get an "Oops" screen-

it won't refresh, not even if I shut down the program and reboot. Problem occurs mostly at night.

Blue, I've had big problems with this for several days now. (I'm using a laptop.) It started giving problems a couple of weeks ago, then settled down, then for the past few days it's been almost impossible to use.

If I click on the connections button it takes me to a screen that tells me what connections are. so I click on it again and again and, most of the time, finally get through. It can take ten or fifteen minutes to get there. Then, when I get to the end of the page and click the link to the next, it can take up to five minutes to get a fresh page.

Most of the time I just give up.

Dozy, sorry to hear you are having issues. I know they are working on the system. but that is the extent of my knowledge. Have you tried using a different browser? Sometimes I have more luck with IE and sometimes more with Firefox. Tonight I used Firefox when testing and had no problem getting to the Browse by Connections, although I do get the same page you mentioned telling me what connections are.

Hi Sherry, I switch browsers whenever Ask is having problems. Mainly I use Chrome but also have Firefox on my task bar. (I haven't sunk as low as IE yet :) though I believe IE9 is a big improvement over previous versions.

Hi bluepencil, Browse by connection is working for me on the computer site. I don't have access to an IPhone to test for you. However they do a lot of maintenance in the middle of the night, so if this is a new thing for you it might be due to that. I will escalate the issue though. I am sorry you are experiencing problems.
