I love the Akron Beacon Journal and reading it digitally is wonderful... when it works. All too often it won't open the digital edition, there is no "contact us" to report or resolve problems, there seem to be a too many bugs that causes the app to spontaneously close. I was once told by someone at customer service (yes, I used a phone and called someone) to delete the app and reload it. So I did. Then I tried to log on. Nope, nothing I did allowed me to sign in. Nothing. Tried half a dozen times before giving up and venting my frustration by writing this review. Please ABJ, resolve some of these bugs. I am a long time subscriber and want my digital edition to pop up on demand, I don't want to jump through a dozen hoops or retry multiple times to read the news. Nuance this app and make it work properly all the time, for all of us.
