Wait for it...Wait for it!
When using this app, I am constantly questioning whether or not I actually tapped the article I wanted to read. The amount of lag time is very annoying. This is how my experience goes with the app open, I tap the article I want to read and wait...1...2...3...AND wait 4...5...6 THEN the article opens. The news articles are the same old BDN I have enjoyed reading for many years however slow and annoying your app is. Also, I threw you a star for NOT charging a subscription fee like the Portland Press Hearld app.
About to UNINSTALL /DELETE :(
Too bad the Bangor Daily News ever changed WebMasters, this seems like WebFailure!! The last App was NEVER this bad!! Extremely SLOW load time, not sure where exactly to touch to select an article since nowhere gives a prompt acknowledgement of your choice. The "About/Help" Icon is Useless along with Frequent Crashing, Freeze-Ups and ZERO place but here to contact or make any input. I hope that SOMEONE besides just us clients reads these reviews and they change soon or I am done... I tried reading ONE simple article to someone and had to RELOAD IT THREE TIMES w/3G & 5 bars b4 giving up... It's NOT worth the time & frustration. :( :( :(
Needs some work
I would wait to update if you can. This app shuts down on its own frequently, comments are not included in the app, the articles take a long time to load and the format is tougher to follow on a mobile device than it used to be. I used to check the app several times a day. I am done using it until it is updated. 3 stars because it is one of the few daily papers that is free and has potential...
