Text no longer overlays. Now you only get part of the first paragraph of many stories. Every new release has a different fundamental error, while not addressing many long-existing ones, such as the inability to read offline content without being prompted for a web login (its offline - get it). This on the galaxy tab device given out to annual subscribers! I along with many others can hardly believe the incompetence. If you cannot get it right on your own devices ... hold on! - you do test it on these don't you? ... don't you?? Obviously not. Can anyone in the team describe the underlying design beneath the user interface? I suspect not - or possibly it's one that is not fit for purpose. This has all the hallmarks of spaghetti code without a coherent framework, resulting in every new iteration having new errors, but still the development team plowing ahead without addressing current technical debt, and thus stockpiling it like gold in Fort Knox. This "process" is not dissimilar to someone trying to swim out of quicksand. Be still and think for a moment ! There IS a way out. It requires careful consideration and deliberate movement. Avoid thrashing about at all costs!
Stop stuffing around with it and fix the bugs. Now It won't even work.
Has taken months and a letter to the editor to get the app looked at to work for all the devices it supposed to work on.....watch this space
Clunky navigation, offline reading bug Requires you to login to read in offline mode,which isjust stupid. Cant belive this bug hasnt been squashed yet. Suggest the australian copy SMH apps navigation system. Its vastly superior.
Auto download on wireless? A function to automatically download new editions of The Australian's excellent content on wireless only would earn a 5th star. I read on the train with patchy 3G. Would be great to have the paper ready to read when i leave home. Also download the whole edition with option to store on device's SD card.
Works fine but navigating app can be a little clunky.
Minor bug fixes
