Poor support from Fairfax and google - Fairfax fixed it Was enjoying this app & subscription until about a week ago the app has ceased recognising that my subscription is current. Contacted Fairfax and they said it's not their problem. Contacted google and they have indicated that all is well with my subscription. Only outlet is to post a poor review in the hopes that someone in the know will look into this problem. Fairfax finally acknowledged that the problem with the app and has rectified the issue. If only it wasn't so hard...
3 years and no updates? Its got multiple bugs that need to be fixed. The worse is it keeps changing settings on its own. I only have technology set to download and at the top of the list. Every 2 or so days its back at the bottom and stopped downloading. FIX!
Android a step back from ipad Updated to an android tablet and have been disappointed. Too much blue area on front and summary pages, and as a consequence the font is too small and can't be increased. Also, no crossword. I wrote to the Age and got a less than convincing reply; something like " sorry about the crossword but we ain't fixing it anytime soon". Bye bye subscription.
Needs to be better when paper editions disappear. One of the reasons for getting the print edition is the crosswords. If the Android app does not include the puzzles then I'd have to seriously consider if the subscription is worthwhile. There are plenty of other newspapers online.
Good be better for subscribers Unable to do find the entertainment section that has the puzzles. It would be nice to have all the puzzles interactive like sudoku and the ability to save. Also a further fine addition would be the daily TV guide. It has improved greatly and is easier for novices too use.
If this is the best Fairfax can do, sell their shares It might come as a surprise to senior management and the board of Fairfax but in 2016 the best publishers in the world are continually improving their digital publications..not sitting on their laurels .the Age android app is poor, slow and lacks any innovative features. Read other reviews for confirmstion of this and the appalling lack of tech support. If you want to see where the Age should b try the Washington Post, Quartz ...and where is Fairfax's android version of the Fin Review?
