Customer Reviews

Very good apps...

Very please...witz this application. It' dynamic. Love to read the News on this format. I've m'y newspaper with me all the time.

St-st-startling Daily, As Usual

1. No dates. Anywhere. Flip around and - you're lost! No idea what day, date, month, or even the year you're reading. Wtf is up with that???
2. Interested in a certain article or opinion and want to share it? Good luck because it's impossible. Why??
3. Want to return to an article or opinion? Good Luck trying to re-find it. Autocorrect wants to change "refind" to 'refund' or 'remind' because there is no such thing as refinding anything on this app!!! FFS.
4. It's a g.d. nightmare!

Very buggy software

I have been using this app since it came out, and the stability is off and on. Some times it works, sometimes it hangs up.
You d/l the days news, and it freezes.
Also, it only works in landscape mode, which is a pain.
Because of the above,I use it less and less. Sorry, but you need to fix these bugs.
Amended 1/17/2017-
Same problems, works for a few months, then you can't d/l the current days edition. It's free, but for the ads. Just a sloppy coding effort.
