In my experience, there is one pop-up ad when you first open the app, and within the articles themselves, there are ads scattered between paragraph making the reading experience slightly disruptive. The issue to me however, is how I'm paying for a newspaper service that crashes when I want to read the paper. After scrolling for some time, it crashes and I have to scroll to that article again. TL;DR: 1. Lots of ads but tolerable 2. App crashes often and is inconvenient

The new app layout is unfriendly and limited. E-paper section has removed 2 functionalities. 1. Landscape to read is absent! 2. Full-size, full-screen e-paper used to fill the entire device screen, latest version is showing the icon, status bar of battery, clock etc. Unacceptable and disappointing. Please listen to feedback, survey of your customers, readers. Correct and thanks very much. Update 02Dec2020. A truly frustrating user experience.Unacceptable slow fixes for a paid bundle SPH service

e-paper edition keeps crashing after I zoom in to enlarge the print. And, screen freezes if I attempt to zoom out thereafter. Very frustrating as it happens on a daily basis, especially in the Sports & Life section. Zero improvement after feedback. Waste of time & effort! FYI, I am using Samsung ST Tablet to read the e-paper!
