Screen setup not as good as for Safari use (iPhone)
I downloaded this app thinking it would be nice to have all the subscriber emails in one locations with the archives handy. While this is the case and it's easy to located the briefings, I find the screen setup is better for Safari: the app includes two toolbars (one on the top and one on the bottom of the screen) that take away from the already limited viewing size of the iPhone screen and these cannot be removed from sight currently (as they disappear for Safari once you scroll down). Safari also shows a larger reading font which is easier on the eyes. Basically, this app does the same thing as your email account linked with Safari with the bonus of archiving but the detraction of poor screen setup for the tiny (iPhone) screen.
Worked quite well when first released and installed about 2 years ago. Never updated. Now cannot pull up archives. Message notification for new unread bulletins not resetting, takes several taps to open the app (after crashing first 4 or 5 attempts). Program has not kept up with new iOS releases and so now nearly useless....disappointing.. It had been my daily reading and format is/was better than the email version!
I get the briefing every morning on this app and love it.
