What a disgrace

Davo from OZ

Is there anyone steering the good ship Fairfax? Suddenly the ‘Blue’ iPad app stops working with a ‘subscription expired message’ and after 2 weeks of trying to get through to Fairfax ‘customer service’ I find out that the Blue app isn’t supported anymore, and you have to use the ‘white’ app. So why is the ‘blue’ app still on the App Store? Why not pull it down and provide users with complete instructions on how to use the Blue app. I often wonder if anyone at Fairfax actually reads their paper via these digital versions?If I were the boss and had to try navigate this digital mess I would sack the entire team and start again - what a disgrace.

Locked out


The updating of a new version of the paper immediately after downloading has been extremely frustrating lately, but now I can't even download a paper. It says my subscription has expired.
This often happens when it gets around to the date of automatic renewal, but only lasts a day. This time, it's not worked all week. Was there a leap year bug perhaps?

what a difference an update


I put up with the worst newspaper app I have ever used since 2011. Just to read the SMH overseas.

But WOW someone has actually done something about the app. All my complaints seem to have been resolved.

It now works like it should. Congratulations.
