Customer Reviews

Crashes often

This could be a great app
It shows an exact replica of the paper edition.
However it has not been updated for a long time and has some annoying bugs.
Firstly it often crashes while reading and though the edition is still shown in the library in order to read it you have to download it again. My record is 8 copies of a paper in my library all of which cause the app to crash if I try to open one of them.
Second issue is once a paper edition is downloaded you still need a network connection to read it. If you are on a plane when you try to read the paper the app can't verify you have a right to read it even though you need the right to download in the first place
Third problem is quite often when you turn a page the next page appears in low resolution and then have to wait ages for the high res readable one to appear.

Late Updates are a Low Point

Update- The latest Edition is now regularly on line around 5AM, so there has been a big improvement since I last Posted.

Supposedly the App is updated with the latest Edition of the newspaper by 6am each morning, however it is 7:10am as I write, and the latest Edition is from the previous day! Apart from this minor hiccup this is a good App when it is current, but they need to sort out the update times.


There's an option to download a sample & on the right it says "Existing" with email & password but I don't have an existing account & there's no option to open one, don't quite understand what it's for, there's no refresh button either, the app constantly quits on me.
