Offline feature is the best Very responsive app and use it regularly. I need to sign on every time can this be avoided. I'm OK to login for admin functions such as change of password. You can have only one font (Times Roman) and it does not look pretty. Prefer a San Serif font as default. Also I cannot change the background -- it harsh white and hurts. Minor changes will go a long way!
Why is the text so small? Why, even on my Nexus 10 Tablet, is the text so small? On the "Latest" tab with the headlines the body text of each entry is small and no way that I can see to resize it larger. After I click through to the article the body text can be adjusted from completely too small to even read to large enough to barely be able to read. Is it possble for the developers to test this app on a Google Nexus 10 tablet and make it so the text can be enlarged or default to larger text? I would really like to use the app.
Desperately needs an update. It's still stuck on Froyo design with Apple iOS 3.0 elements. It's a bit slow on scrolling as well and uses the settings button which has been deprecated as of Android 4.0. Beyond that, you can read things fine. Just is ancient looking.
Pinch zoom desperately needed Please add pinch zoom so we can scale the text how we like rather than a simple two scale fixed design that currently exists. Viewing the text on a mobile is somewhat painful because even when zoomed, is still small (old eyes). Pinch zoom would get around this limitation
Password reset and length mismatch fail The app lacks the ability to reset one's password if unable to login. Seems as though there is a length or other mismatch which registration and login don't accept the same pasted value. One might be truncating early or allow more characters but did not warn of password field restrictions. I registered, verified the email link, went to login and was rejected using the same credentials as used to register. Now I have to go to a browser to request a reset of the password and try something shorter.
Hard to read This complaint is not particular to this app, but I hate the trend of gray on lighter gray for text. I find it hard to read.
