Review from charles mccarthy
Worried after reading the reviews, no issues yet I spent a fair amount of time reading through the reviews only to find poor reports of everything. I downloaded the app last night and setup was seamless. I noticed that a review said to turn off smart zoom, and for good measure I turned off text in smart flow as well. I read the paper this morning on my nexus 7 and the app did not crash once. The only issue I noticed was the pages repeating towards the end. I also have the iPad app, but I love the portability of the nexus while i'm on the T. Another thing to look out for: If you're interested in having it preload the paper in the morning, make sure you check off the option before you continue.
Buggy, unreliable Buggy, slow, and recently increasingly unreliable. I am confident that better performance is possible if sufficient talent and attention is brought to bear. The error-free NYTimes app is an example I am familiar with. Presently the Boston Globe e-paper is not an acceptable alternative to hard copy if you care to be up to date and informed. And sure enough, recent upgrade to lollipop galaxy tab s completely breaks this app with device authorization failure. What is wrong with you people?
App will make purchases w/out warning Overall app is fine with me. Beware, I copied the text on an article and now I've been charged. I didn't see any place which said that would occur. The app did not provide a warning pop up that a charge would occur either.
Can't even log in. Customer service said it was fixed but apparently not. Edit 1/29/15: still broken, complained again to the support team.
Unstable, poor formatting, broken links The app stops working frequently and must be restarted. Words and paragraphs are broken in odd places. Links to continuations of articles don't always work. Daily comics are sometimes in color and sometimes not. Articles that span facing pages do not display properly. In short, this app makes the Globe look bad and should be fixed or replaced ASAP.
Only works sometimes The delivery guy used to be hit or miss. So I buy a digital subscription. What could go wrong? Well they seem to have a lot as trouble keeping the bugs out of this app.
Doesn't work Having the same device authorization issues that others are having.
