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, sometimes more. It's really annoying
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).
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.
