Even worse than before

This app has always been frustrating to use with its flicking to full page whenever one swipes more than a pixel past the page limit probably being the worst ‘feature’. But it wasn’t so broken that the boffins had to come in and FIX it!
Now what the hell is all this interminable ‘Updating’ - often with an error that the “network is unavailable - try again later” message!!!!!, completely blurred text, slooooow responsiveness just to name a few - all issues added on to the old problems that haven’t been fixed.
Fairfax, forget those Primary School coders you engaged and go get a profession to fix this app. I’m seriously thinking of cancelling my 20 year subscription to The Age, it’s THAT BAD!
If you think I’m exaggerating you go to the Entertainment pages and stare at the completely blurred movie listings for 5 minutes and see for yourself.

Not working again

UPDATE: 19th August 2016. App no longer working and have been advised by OS call centres that Fairfax no longer supports this App but that I should use the blue App. This is totally unacceptable as the Fairfax Blue App is too slow and a poor alternative to this black App. PLEASE fix the problem where I am getting the error message that my subscription has expired when in fact it has not.

UPDATE: 10th March. My app is now working perfectly and back to a five star experience so rating altered to reflect this.

Previous rating:
This app worked perfectly for me until Sunday when I started to get the message that my subscription had expired. Upon going to the Age Replica website and subscribing, was advised that I am already subscribed but still unable to view Replica. There is no record of an update on the App so what happened?? Fairfax please provide a minimum of customer service by responding to emails other than a computer generated acknowledgement that they have received yours. I did not do an Apple update over this time so back to you Fairfax.

Disturbing Update - Where was the beta testing for this?

Very disheartened by this latest version. Apart from the other comments mentioned here, I cannot believe that all my old saved newspapers have disappeared from my library. Now I have to go to the State Library to get copies of all those articles I had saved. I have recently had a number of opportunities to fly and always download an edition before flying, but imagine my frustration when the edition won't load in airplane mode. Does it really need a WiFi connection after you have downloaded an edition? Bad execution of this product Fairfax - pick up your game please!
