Disappointing elements still disappointing The app is extremely slow. It takes 7 - 15 minutes to download the news. The app's new "follow" feature seems half baked. Not only does it not let you choose your own topics, but the ones it offers are often way off the mark. A recent article about John Lennon ’s art offered to let me follow "Paul McCartney," but not "John Lennon," "art" or "Beatles."
A bit slow The app is a bit slow, but what I really don't like is that I can't use Google assist or web search from the app. I've notified them of this, and while they've acknowledged my request, they gave no indication of trying to implement it.
Works very smoothly Only complaint is it doesn't always recognize me as a print subscriber and challenges my right to read articles. Probably my fault but procedure for resolving that issue should be more obvious or easier.
Stupid idea New app update limits you to max 10 articles a month? In this age of free media? I'm sure I'm not the only one deleting this app. Good idea, guys.
Usually good, but not perfect Normally works well, but a lot of crashes this year (2016).
Uncertain Stories disjointed at times. Some not well written seems to demonstrate lack of fact checking in many articles. Definitely, could be better!
