Another update - Another failure! Zero stars

I wrote in 2013, how bad the Herald Sun app was. After a long time they finally got it right and now we are given this rubbish and told it is clearer and easier to use. What a joke! It is exactly the opposite. This app again deserves no stars.
Every page is slightly out of focus for about half a second and by the time I had finished reading the whole paper, my eyes were hurting.
The basic functions are more difficult to use and are actually slower than before.
Do they actually trial this rubbish before releasing it on the unsuspecting readers who pay good money to read the paper every day.
We as loyal readers deserve better and are treated with contempt by this organization.
Perhaps a mass exodus of paying customers will bring them to reality!

Massive Improvement

Great Job on the new version. A lot of thought seems to have gone into the design as it is just so easy to navigage. The print version is great!! quick to download and easy to use. Price just needs to be cheaper

So much better but.....

Much much better. Downloads quickly, easy to navigate, no complaints. Perhaps those with download problems should look at their device rather than blame the app?
