Twitter login issue

staunchnortheasterner

I try to log in using Twitter, it then asks to enter my email address, I do that, and it says “Unable to update profile”! I want my Baltimore Sun account linked to my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts!

Slick, but has major issues!

AstroPaul

Grew up getting the Baltimore Sun hard copy paper. Always impressed with its quality, and, as long time Orioles fans, enjoyed its coverage and, more recently, the BS dedicated Orioles app. Sorry to see that go!

As to this...

Smooth, well thought out app. Permits customization of sections; easy movement around app; scrolls well.

ISSUES

1. Too many advertisements.

They are embedded in the headline list for each section and, worse, in the middle of every single story. They remain there even if one is reading offline!

Will they still be there if we subscribe? Until we know that, we won't subscribe.

2. Text is small and there is no way of changing the font size, at least none that we can find.

We don't hold our devices up to our eyeballs, so this is a problem. Until that is added, we won't subscribe or use the app.

Note: the BS Orioles app has font size controls , but even its largest size was too small.

3. The sections list is incredibly long, including county after county!

Those should be grouped and put at the bottom. As it stands, it requires too much rummaging and rearranging to get sections right.

Hope you all can fix these things -- we would like to keep following the O's even though we now live hundreds of miles away from home!

Useless search function

Brouwman

The Sun app is about average for a newspaper app but with a couple of annoyances that make me want to pick up the physical paper instead. The only way to go to a specific section is by scrolling across the top bar, and not all of the sections are there...or are not recognizable at least. And the search function is just plain bad. I don't think I've ever found a specific article using it. I just give up and google it. It's nice to have specific sections dedicated to the local sports teams, but why can't I read the funnies on my phone? The Post won't let you either.
