Gave it 1 star only because there's not an option for zero. I understand that it's tough times for newspapers these days but a user should be able to get at least a couple articles to be able to assess the coverage. Even if that's not the case I think they've seriously misjudged the price point. Buh-bye!
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.
Great journalism but poor execution. The Globe and Mail is a great newspaper with excellent journalists and content of interest to most Canadians, including myself. Unfortunately this app falls way short of the mark. I am constantly getting "server error" messages, and cannot read the article. The website works much more reliably through a web browser, so I uninstalled the app, and instead use a web shortcut placed on my home screen.
Poor app for the price I subscribe to G&M and enjoy reading it online, check my portfolio etc. This app is poorly designed and doesn't offer nearly as much as online desktop content. Stock screener and investement section needs to be improved specifically for regular subscribers.
Used to like this app even if it wasn't the most refined and never actually shutdown when you closed it but yeah now it's acting just like the web version...requires a paid subscription. Hopefully they remove this otherwise uninstalling.
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.
