I love this app—I’ve used it to read the ABJ for several years now. I especially like that it looks just like the newspaper. HOWEVER, in the past few weeks the breaking news feed button has dimmed, so that option is no longer available on my app! I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling the app. PLEASE HELP!

Messed up!

After install, I am stuck in an endless loop of messages to update, selection of type of content, select edition. . . Then bsck to prompt to update app,which is already done, etc. Restarted and still no way to get the e edition. My next two alternatives in order are uninstall and reinstall the app, then cancel my subscription.

Current Version

This app stinks. This use to be my go to app every night to read the news but when they changed it they ruined it. If you want to read the current news look elsewhere.

Developer Response ,

The Bob Dyer articles have been restored in the app. We were transitioning between systems and had less articles available for a short period of time.
