Works well


I think it works fine. Doesn't crash, like others have suggested.
Clarity is good, I like the idea of the fully scanned paper, that way you end up with all the local announcements, ads and community snippets

Server side issues are now fixed. Loads really fast now. 5 star rating now!

iOS 11 issues

Not working with IOS11


The Mercury app is not working with IOS11. When will it be fixed. I have a digital subscription and I access the mercury on my iPad.
