The January 24 update was supposed to fix bugs but now it seems there's more bugs than before. It's more laggy and harder to get the comments to load. Sometimes it won't scroll fully to articles that are listed on the screen. There are photo circles that post over the copy on the screen and it just doesn't seem as smooth as before.

My experience with this app is it worse than the web based views. Everything as a paper subscriber I want to search for a topic, author, or current event, the search function is horrible. Asked about this with email support a year ago and it is still not showing results the way the web version does.

Constantly starts videos with sound on my Samsung Galaxy S10+ when not wanting to see videos; sometimes when the app isn't even open. Secondly, when scrolling page-to-page, the app eliminates whole blocks of info. That is unacceptable for a very expensive subscription. I notified the developer 2 months ago, but still no fix. Ive downloaded latest version, too. Makes my subscription worthless.
