Buggy I'm a Globe unlimited subscriber. The app says I'm logged in, but every time I try to access an article it tells me I need to log in or create an account.
Uninstalling Used to love it. Most everything is behind pay wall and the fees are ludicrous. I especially enjoyed the offline reading feature for reading on the plane. I understand that some content should be premium, maybe they will reconsider...
Terrible now they charge for EVERYTHING This used to be my go to news app, now it's the NYTimes as they allow 10 free articles a month. G&M has dropped the ball bigtime and I've uninstalled it now.
Overpriced A hardcopy is worth 24$ a month. An online version with an overpriced fee isn't going to net you readers. Most folks would pay about 5 or 10$ a month. 24$ is absolutely out of the question. Who is your intended demographic with a 24$ a month price tag for online content? Especially when there are free apps to contend with? Marketing clearly hasn't done thier research.....
$24 a month? GTFOH That adds up to almost $300 per year. Get real. I'll pay, but not that ridiculous amount. Love this publication, but it'll be a sad day when they meet their end by their own doing.
BLOCKED ... For me this app worked reasonably well on my Note 4 and I enjoyed using it. I have no problem with a company charging for a service that they have paid for in the first place to make available to the public. However this app is now practically useless with the increasing blocking. For the time being others will be my go to news apps until they go the same route. I actually would not mind paying as long as complete FB sharing remains available. Oh well.
