Everything is blocked, but only in this app Four some reason I can see all of the content on their website without logging in, but this app says I need to subscribe to even see an article about coffee. Is no-one at the globe reviewing these comments!? The feedback is pretty consistent...
Used to be a great app I like the Globe and Mail as a news source, but so much of the content is now locked within the app unless you're a subscriber. It didn't used to be like this. Some of the articles that are locked are free to read on the desktop webpage which is still accessible from your phone. I just deleted the app after clicking on one too many articles only to find out it was locked. At least put a symbol by each article that is locked so that people don't waste their time.
Paywall ruined this This was my top app for keeping up with news in Canada. As a US citizen this was very useful for me, and I especially loved the great opinion pieces and insight into issues facing my neighbors to the north. Now all that is behind a paywall, which means I have one less trusted, reliable news source. Going to uninstall now as this app is essentially useless for me. The NY Times at least gives you 10 free articles a month. I'm sorry Globe & Mail. You were good, but now you're unapproachable.
I count on the G&M to provide some of the most well researched and unbiased news in the country. Although not necessary, it would be nice if I could check the status of my investments from within this app. Thankfully the latest version has corrected several issues I was having with certain articles not loading.
Rip off! Used to love it but $25 a month? For an app? I live overseas so I can't get the print edition and wouldn't want it anyway. I checked out their fees because I would have been willing to pay a reasonable amount. Sorry I'm not rich enough for the globe's tastes.
Was great. Now a scam I loved this app. It was my daily read for 4 years. But now all the posted articles require a subscription. This is NO LONGER A FREE APP, but a scam to suck money out of you. So much for journalistic pride... the Globe and Mail is just a money grab. Uninstalling.
