Doesn't crash for me, but mobile experience is too simplistic and has poor UX. I subscribed, loaded the app, and pretty quickly decided to cancel my subscription, because the app makes consuming the news quite difficult. The design, particularly on mobile, is bad, take a look at top newspapers like NYTimes, or even the local SF Chronicle. There isn't a quick and easy way to get to important things like election coverage, or filter out stuff I don't want like sports (which eats the front page).

This new app is a mess! After 7 years of using the old app with no problems, this update just flat doesn't work! Been on the phone 3 separate times. Dumped the old app, reinstalled, changed email addresses and passwords and no matter what, it keeps telling me my user name and password is not valid (and that's with the help desk walking me thru the set up process step by step) Temp password they gave me doesn't work. New email reset password link never sent via email as promised. A total cluster

The search function is fully broken. Typing a text search is painful and tedious. Its constantly double-typing or trying to predict the search. Tried this on three different android phones and made sure my own phones autocomplete and word suggestions was disabled. The ads are annoying and full of political drivel that makes the ap frustrating. Would be great if the Mercury would put some filters on the ads displayed through their app. There are very dishonest and sketchy advertisements.
