Terrible downgrade

The Courier Mail app used to be fantastic - so easy to read the paper each day and very user-friendly. Now I have the following issues: the app is often unresponsive, where I have to swipe a few times before the page turns; every time a page is loaded it is blurry, then gradually sharpens; sometimes lift out sections lock up on paused, appearing several times in the library section but unable to be opened; the reader view (accessed by clicking on blue highlighted headlines) now only takes up 3/4 of the screen - the old system of three columns was much better because it also included colour photos, not just text; finally the app sometimes crashes for no reason, going back to the newsstand main menu.

All my paper downloads are gone

Does anyone else have this complaint? I was happy to update the App as requested, given the new features promised. However, all my previous paper downloads have disappeared. I save them to read when I can, for example, when I’m on holidays. I pay a monthly fee, it is my right to read the paper how I choose. I have contacted the Courier Mail twice this week with my complaint and no response. If they can’t reinstate my downloads, this is like stealing to me. I am quite annoyed with inadequate service.

Good one!

Much faster and easier to use than the previous version. Unlike the old version the front page of the print version is front and centre. Downloading on my 4G takes seconds! great improvement
