Review from David Bowes
Dreadful new app Mail say this is developed following reader feedback... This app is a joke. Can not read the paper now.
Dd.13 May....awful app, I have the trial version, but ever Friday it decides that I don't have an account and need to re-login. It's not worth the stress, the puzzle pages are the only section worth looking into... The free app is much easier to read. The format of mail plus is a constant strain on your eyes, in that you travel to constantly zoom in to read anything as the whole page is named to fit on your device screen. I've a headache now. I've only used this for the 2nd day now and will go back to the free app format. If this was readable in a page-turner pdf format, or keeping pages in article format, I'd give it a better score. The ord pages are great...as you'll see, in a single item on your screen - no zooming in or out required
Dreadful app. To get each daily issue, have to uninstall and then reinstall. The only way to get each new issue. Same on all my devices. Will not renew subscription.
For an App that takes up so much space, it's odd that the developers don't let you move it to the SD card, lasy programming in my mind. Also notice a bug in the puzzle section. There appears to be two separate timers running. One for portrait mode and another for horizontal mode. Why? Again either lasy programming or lack of testing. Also of those of use who's eyesight in not as good as it used to be, it's rather annoying that again in the puzzle section, a lot of real estate is not being utilised to make the boxes bigger. No wonder those of us in advancing years have a reputation for not embracing technology. But it's not for the want of trying... its just things are too damm small!
Stable with now crashes. BUT jerky pinch zoom on Android Galaxy Tab 10 S. Very irritating! Much better on iPad.
Takes up too much space - cannot be moved to SF card. Locks out when deleting editions. Have to reinstall app at least once a week. Needs reprogramming I will likely cancel subscription at end of year if it doesn't improve. 👎
Rubbish. Used to work perfectly but now I have to reinstall then install again on a daily basis. Why bother with a subscription when it doesn't work.
