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...
Fairfax have stopped supporting this app, but they only tell you that if you raise an issue. Dubious ethics to keep offering the app in the Play Store with no mention that it is unsupported. (And why not support the Android app when they are putting so much effort into revamping their iPad app?) My issue was with the daily "super quiz" feature, which has become barely usable. You may find the app is in some ways more convenient to use than the Age website, but don't count on it continuing to function.
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.
