More often than not, I open a story and it hangs. I have to go back to the main page, and try to re-open it several times. Links do not open at all. The pictures are repeated throughout the story, and when there's a detailed diagram etc, they can't be opened or viewed in any detail to make them out. It need a night mode with white text on black background. It needs an option to share stories. This is a very frustrating app with really poor interface.
Still problematic I don't know what it is about the National Post 's website but it ALWAYS loads slow and freezes up. Every... single... time. Simply scrolling up and down is an exercise in frustration. So I thought I might get better results with the app. Apparently not. The exact same problems came up. I'm on an LG G2 and I don't have these problems on other sites or apps. What is it with The National Post that continually fails to work properly?
Lots of headlines, blank stories Pulling up stories seems to be too much trouble for this app about 70% of the time. Not the most effective tool. Would prefer one that works even if that meant a subscription fee.
Must reload articles Buggy. I always have to reload at least the first article, and usually more. It's really annoying. Other reviewers indication that this is a common issue, but national post has decided to ignore it. Maybe it's time to start paying for globe and mail...
On Android it serves up stories quickly and font size is good. It doesn't have any functionality other than downloading stories. Would be nice to offer settings like choosing which sections to display, search for articles, video, etc.
Hangs As other users have mentioned, this app hangs every time I load a story. Pressing 'back' and then reselecting the same story resolves this. But you have to do it EVERY TIME. Tried clearing the app data but it made no difference...
1.3.6 Minor bug fixes
Please note: If you are experiencing unusual wait times for stories to load or the app hangs at the "Loading Stories" screen, please clear data for the app (Manage Apps > National Post > Clear Data) or uninstall your current version and reinstall the latest version which fixes this issue.
