A once great app, now slow buggy anfd crashing Love the newspaper and the app was once great. Now the morning newspaper takes ages to load and keeps crashing out or reloading. I don't know what has gone wrong. And yes, I have completely unistalled deleted residual files and reinstalled to no avail. This is so annoying I am questioning my subscription.
STILL a poor quality app For many years many issues have gone unresolved. Buggy. Navigation is clunky, just horrible. Shows headline only, no summary, in an awkward thumbnail type slider. App does its best to discourage use of the traditional and far more usable newspaper layout. That layout has no auto download option, it often gets stuck on old issues (requiring a reinstall to resolve) or has download issues. No way to comment or read comments in app. Generally a poorly designed app with a forced awkward and forgotten interface.
Consistent problems Experiencing the same issues as others. The front screen comes up but I can't access the articles without reinstalling every day. Annoying and frustrating that I can't catch up with the news through the app. Used some of the tips I sourced with limited success. When is does work it's great
Unreliable. Bugs reported but un-fixed. Print edition/News Stand frustratingly unreliable. Current day's Print Edition doesn't show up... Refresh the screen - no change. Downloaded Print Edition disappears erratically from the Library, requiring repeat downloads. Reported it/uninstalled it/reinstalled etc... no change... still stuffed! About time someone took a long look at this App and it's development as well as News' response to customer complaints. This App is the key to the extra subscription fee being charged for the Digital/Print Edition.
Does not work on my Android phone. Can read the headlines but tapping on a story mostly brings up a blank page with no content visible. . If you reinstall it it works the first time you use it but not after that. So to use it you have to reinstall it everday.
I'm in the middle of reading an article from an earlier edition, I lock the screen and go do something else for a few minutes, and it resets itself to the front page of today's edition. I then have to renavigate to the article. I HATE it when apps do this. It makes it almost unusable. You also can't bookmark articles for future reference. You share from the app. Pathetic really. Update: also often asks to login regularly. Update 2: now insists on an Internet connection, even though I downloaded it to read later. Getting worse and worse.
