New update has lots of bugs The latest update has lots of great features, such as speed, some new aesthetics, but it has lots of bugs that I'm hoping will be patched soon. When reading an article in the Local section and I hit the back button on my phone (not app), it keeps taking me back to the sports section. Some articles just aren't even loading or I'm getting a "connection error" message. Also, if they could let me know when an article is a video and not an actual article, that would be helpful.
Marginal improvement needed The new app has nice features, but why doesn't the text use more of the screen? Too large of a margin on the sides. And if you enlarge the font, then words are visibly chopped off by this imposed blackline.
Upgrade stinks Section icon dosent work on fire hd or new Android phones. Where's the comic section. Only reason I subscribe. Time to rethink my subscription
Last update stinks Great paper; latest update wastes tons of space and puts buttons over article text. However, I like that it shows new articles prompt and gives you the option to load them or not
10/25/16 Update The return links are all over the map. You could select an article in Business and when finished the return link takes you to a completely different area. There is work to be done. This is not an improvement.
This update is a major release, with a brand new design and article layout, a new alert dashboard with customizable alert feeds, sections that load up to 10x faster than before, and hundreds of other bug fixes and improvements.
