Greed Hey Globe and Mail! Loved the app before when at least some articles were readable. I understand the need for your company to make money but the pay walls are not the answer. The result of your greed is apparent by all the 1 star reviews you've been getting today, and will get tomorrow, and days and weeks after. Don't be arrogant. Your articles, while well written, are not the only source we can go to for well written articles. Keep it up. Hey, have you guys heard of a company called Post Media? Byeeeeeeee
Useless Once great, now pointless. Now used only to check headlines. If I see something interesting I log into Globe's webpage. Globe 2 Go tripled in price and became far too expensive and now this useless app. Not sure who is making their business decisions but they must be losing a lot of readers. Lots of other free places to get the news. Deleting this app.
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.
Big Mistake on Pricing I am happy to pay for news. I don't expect to read the Globe for free. I still get a print version delivered on Saturday and I was reading the app during the week. I even was a Globe Unlimited subscriber, but the app functioned so poorly on Android when logged-in that it wasn't worth the effort. The recent versions of the Android and iOS apps are terrible, but I was willing to overlook the functionality because of the content. But $24/ month? The New York Times is only $14. Price point should be $10/month
Need to subscribe to access articles What a waste of time. 90% of the articles can't be read without subscribing. You'll receive notifications about breaking news only to find that you can't read the article without paying. What a waste of time... Download Flipboard. Far better resource for global news.
I loved this app I loved this app and even though I am American, I started every day reading these articles. I often shared the good ones with others on social media. Occasionally one was blocked but now nearly every important article is blocked. The price to subscribe hundreds of dollars - I am so very disappointed. Even the NY Times - one of the most highly read papers in the world lowered their price to $9.99. Maybe Stephen Harper took over G&M. He always wanted to restrict access to news. Make it unaffordable
