Downloads not working properly since iOS 10

This app remains my most used on my iPad. It is a real boon to be able to take it to places where there is no internet connection and still read my favourite newspaper. I'd give it 5 stars but since I have upgraded to iOS 10, the background downloads are not as clean as they used to be. The file gets downloaded but it does not get unpacked or processed until I open the app. Therefore the badge number doesn't update on the icon and I can't be sure that a new issue has been downloaded.

Clean and beautiful

The layout of the articles is beautiful, very clean and much more like the paper than the website. The app showcases some very good photography too. The Guardian website is already very good, so you need to decide if paying for a separate app is worth it. I've used it very happily when I haven't had an internet connection, such an on the train, with the daily edition downloaded overnight.

How hard can this be?

The app had been working fine but blew up when I was in Spain with less that perfect network coverage. Why should that cause a problem other than to increase download times (which is how all my other cloud app behaved)? The app then refused to download issues regardless if network. A reset failed to make a difference whereas a delete/reinstall did. Why is this so hard. The Telegraph app is just as bad. How hard is it to download a few files once a day?
