Ratings and Reviews
I don't generally review apps, but this needs to be said. Generally internet apps obtain revenue through paid subscriptions or free with ads as a source of revenue, not both without the option to remove the ads. This app does both and wasn't their original intent when I started paying monthly for the service. When they decided to incorporate Google Ads at the bottom of each page, they required you to download the app again or a new version of the app to use your existing account. The ads cover up the bottom of the page at times in a glitchy manner. Second, every morning since downloading the new app the newspaper states the file won't open and I have to go through a series of resets in order to open/read the paper. The genius who thought of the decades old idea of incorporating Google Ads onto the app should have realized that the paid subscriptions and ads within the paper are enough revenue from this endeavor. Anything further is greedy and destroys the user's experience.
This is one of the worst apps I have ever used and it's particularly frustrating when you pay for a newspaper subscription and this is what you have to read it on. It constantly requires you to log back in and although there is an option to delete old versions of the newspapers, it never appears to actually delete them.
