What's New in Version 4.0.2
Minor bug fixes
Once upon a time...
Before the update, this app was GREAT!!! The articles loaded quickly, were informative, etc. Now, they don't load for 15-30 seconds, and when they finally do, the app crashes after 3 seconds of reading. Also, before the update I could read an article, get interrupted by a text, answer it and go right back to the article. No more. Now when that scenario happens, the whole thing reloads and I have to go find the article again. Way to go Cox. If it works, break it so you can say you fixed something.
Crashes constantly - worthless
This app takes forever to load, and crashes every single time I start reading a story. It was bad before, but they've added ads within the stories and this seems to be what makes it crash. It's now completely worthless. Also the characterization of stories under the different categories. You can see the same story under local, business, and celebrities.
I have been a subscriber to AJC off and on for 20 years. When I moved away from reading "the paper" to consuming content electronically the AJC did not keep up with me. All of their apps are disappointing and push me to other apps (like flipboard) that are much easier to use. Unfortunately, their content has slipped as well. Not sure how much longer I will be willing to pay for something I use less and less.
