App does not work!
When you download the app and launch it for the first time, it shows a message that says, "Download in Progress. It could take up to a minute." It then stays on the same message an hour later. Next day, it says the same thing. Force quit, restart and reinstall don't fix it. You'd think a major international newspaper could do better.
Looks Good, but...
....without a search function, it gets old fast.
