Welcome but crude


It's very nice to finally see the return of the Factiva app for smart devices, but it is very crude and not really working reliably. Is it being maintained at all?

One can only hope that this is just the start. The save function is not working (yet) and some obvious missing functionalities are:

- Search!
- Landscape view
- Text size choice
- Alert settings

Excited to see how this app develops.

Need an iPad app ASAP to take this useful tool to the next efficient level

Welcome to the 21st century !
Thank you for your consideration to my request. Please send me the expected date of release

Of all the apps the one that really had to be made for ipad doesn't work on an ipad.


1. Doesn't let you type your username and password on an iPad.
2. Tried working around it. Typed user and password in my notes copied them to the form. the app automatically turns the first letter of ID and pass into capital and turns out this is the first app in the human history that has case sensitive ID.
3. Tried working around that too. Decided to change the first letter of both pass and username to capital letters. Turns out this is the first app after the civil war that gives you the option to change your username and password but doesn't allow you to change it, by saying "you are not allowed to change your username and password"
