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?
Unreliable Frozen on content from 4 days ago. Followed all instructions to reinstall to no avail. Did this several times. Does this on computer also. I am a subscriber. Dumb. Update: Last night received 1 Dec news which today still shows. Dumb. Update: Still on 1 Dec news after clearing,uninstall, and reinstall. Dumb. UPDATE: Stuck on 21 Dec. Removed, used C Cleaner, reinstalled. Still on 21 Dec. Dumb.
"loading stories" freezes on both Samsung Android Tablet and Phone, and the app hangs at the "Loading Stories" screen, after having loaded advertisement at the bottom of the screen. Their "fix" of " clear data for the app (Manage Apps > National Post > Clear Data) or uninstall your current version and reinstall the latest 1.3.6 version which fixes this issue" does not work. They are not paying attention to the large number of 1/5 lowest ratings of all apps on Google Play, and are not really fixing the problem which has been highlighted since June 2015 (a year ago).
Easy to use; needs a little more Very easy to use. However, I'd like to be able to save articles (the full articles for offline reading as well as links) in a list that I can access later. I'd also like to be able to share articles by copying the links and sending them through social media services like I can with other news apps. Oftentimes want to share an article on Facebook and I can't.
The articles are Brilliant. Provide streamlined share icons and approaches(facebook,twitter an such) for S5 (your 35 an under readers)and you will earn your 5 stars and market share.
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.
