This app doesn't really improve over numerous versions of updates. Despite using one of the latest phones with 12GB of ram and ipads, this app is still very buggy with the same usual faults with every updated version. In particular, the auto delivery feature can be very disappointing. From time to time the app "forgets" the list in your auto delivery list and requires the user to re-login to the app. Auto downloaded articles are frequently shown as not yet downloaded, usually requiring the u

This app is simply terrible. The layout is just bizarre. Navigating to a particular newspaper is confusing. The horizontal layout seems designed for a tablet. I just don't get it. Truly awful UX. After navigating to a publication though, it is pretty nice. The pages scroll through smoothly and the links to jump pages are very helpful. Some improvements on the navigation both inside and outside of publications could make the app extremely good.

TK, sorry to hear that you don't like the new interface. You can still search by title, and add specific titles to your favorites

The app works fine for what I need but it would be nice to be able to highlight words or sections. I like that it can read articles. It would be great if you could stop and pick up listening where you left off or go back to post of the article and play from the but it will only let you start the article from the beginning. One's in a while it starts downloading a publication but doesn't finish the item for whatever reason. Then last it will keep trying every time I open the app, sometimes months after the item was published. Other than that this app does what I need.
