Update 3.1- a big disappointment.
Very poor performance on my IPAD 3, jerky response to swipes, page text takes about five seconds to render. Smartflow hung the app. Had to terminate.
This version is as buggy as the original launch. Jerky, lagging page turns - often hangs on previous page - print resolution takes two steps to clarity. However, like the graduating blue on the headlines and the drop shadow makes them stand out. When it finally loads it's very good on the new iPad. Waiting for the upgrade.
Page turn often lags and hangs on iPad 3
Like other reviewers I am experiencing page turn lags and hangs on the iPad 3. Both the iPad (original) and iPad 2 work fine. I assume this problem is something to do with the retina screen on the iPad 3.
Also I had to reinstall the app on all 3 iPads to get the 'Download' button to work. Before reinstalling the button was 'greyed out' and displayed 'Loading' all the time.
The page turn problem seems to happen most often just after a full page advertisement especially when the next page contains images. The page partially slides across, about four fifths of the way and then stops for two to five seconds before finally showing the next page. Sometimes it happens frequently sometimes one can turn many pages normally without it hanging.
This problem should be fixed quickly as it is annoying. But why didn't the Globe and Mail test the app thoroughly before releasing it?
