The auto download is broken. It never finishes or downloads the same issue multiple times. Do they even test the software before releasing it? I don't recommend this app if you have a cell data plan.
This company has a mixed track record in delivering stable apps. Some releases seem as if they weren't even internally tested. They might also want to consider establishing a beta channel. I have reported problems with automatic downloads and tech support acts as if there's no problem. They ignore version numbers cited in the email. All around stupid support. But the renderings are good and the availability of so many newspapers is invaluable because I travel internationally.
Auto-Download never works. I have to Force Stop and manually download each issue. The new layout is terrible on mobile devices. It's a good thing I don't need this to read my pubs because I would never read them. I get a hard copy of them int he mail so this isn't a necessity.
Since the last update, this sucks big time. Keeps getting hung up on the downloading. Only way to stop it is to do a Force Stop. Which is ridiculous, given that I have already downloaded the Ottawa Sun paper and read it. Please fix this issue. It is using a lot of my data. Over 1 gig in past week. Help!!
What is going on? New update has ruined this app. Constantly fails to download or authorise. I have been a subscriber for years and feel badly let down. And the latest update has broken downloads again after all has been well for a year or more,
Any hope of a fix to the downloads-forever problems others noted? I Hate having to force an app stop after everytime I use the app. 20170914 Worked well in my Kindle. Android version burned up 1G of data overnight then had trouble recognizing I'm a WP subscriber. Recent WP site update & Press Reader updates make it usable on Android but occasionally won't let me read more than a couple of articles in an issue. Sometimes going to WP login page where it tells me "you are logged in" fixes it. Other minor bugs show up occasionally like opening the wrong story. Despite these significant issues still the best way to read the printed edition.
