Disappointed app not that special Would be better if the app format allowed it to be read like a paper and enable to zoom in as you could via press reader which was great until news Corp stopped providing it's papers to them. The press reader app is the best app for online reading
Love the newspaper but please fix the bugs! Have been using daily for several years & enjoy it but am now disappointed that long-standing bugs not addressed on Android. Having to redownload the Print Edition several times daily and suffer through "cannot download selected edition" seems to be getting worse. Headline tags often go to wrong landing page.
Content and app is great but.. 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.
Despite a few updates and a new Samsung Tab S, this app is useless for offline reading. It downloads everything OK, including the "paper" version, and it can all be read then, offline, but try later on, after a few hours, and it has forgotten everything it downloaded earlier in the day. Edit 13/5/16: after a couple of weeks of relative calm ie offline paper editions actually being available, back to the bad old days recently. "File no longer exists...please re-download it". Pretty hard when I have no data connection. And today, the 13th of May, it gave me the paper for the 13th of April! I tried numerous times.
Works fine but navigating app can be a little clunky.
Disappointing Doesn't update for 24 hours, so somewhat static content. Better to just go to the website.
