The only options to share articles are Bluetooth and "nearby," which I presume is NFC. Also, ads ads ads. I don't entirely begrudge the banner ads on articles. I get it that newspapers have always relied on adspace for revenue. But the splash screen ads and, worse, auto-playing videos are a step too far. I'm a subscriber, I shouldn't have to wait for a full-screen ad to load every time I open the app. And no one should be subjected to auto-playing videos.

Looks theyve improved the notifications for the Breaking News alerts. But still cant read the articles because it constantly asks to subscribe to something despite already being logged into the app already. I dont have this problem when accessing the website on a desktop. Definitely seems like some kind of money grab eventhough they are already showing ads on this thing.

Bad app, bad website. Called customer service after experiencing technical problems on website and in app. The person I spoke to intially told me the website was fine, argued with me over what I was trying to do (sign up for newsletter which wasn't working), then after further belittling me and what I was trying to do finally looked and found there was already a ticket open for just my issue.
