Don't upgrade- keep the Old NZ Herald App

I still have the old version of the app, which is fabulous.. just as well, given the new app isn't anywhere near as good.

Soooo frustrating, I loved this app. but since the latest update it crashes completely whenever that stupid McDonald's ad pops up. Just about given up!!

Old version better

I used to hold the NZ Herald iOS app up as an example of a very readable news site - it was way easier to browse on an iPad than the awful new BBC app or the current Australia ABC app. But someone at the Herald decided to tinker with near perfection. Sad.
