Best app for reading a PDF newspaper

I personally like thumbing through a newspaper and have found that reading a PDF version to be cumbersome and slow. This app solves that in spades. You get the feel of flipping the pages like a real newspaper and when you find an article you want to read, you just double tap on it and it opens in a separate window. You can increase the font size (excellent feature for me) and get the full article even if the article continues on a different page in the PDF. It also provides tabs so you can go to a section without have to flip each page. I also have the regular tribune app and I actually prefer this app because it feels like you are handing a real newspaper with the ads , comics, etc.

Recent Bugs

I have always loved this app and use it daily from everywhere. BUT, for the last few weeks (maybe since interfacing with yet another Apple update) it crashes every time I use it. Generally, this occurs a dozen or so pages into the edition but once it starts it is impossible to get back on track and read the rest of the issue. If not fixed soon, I would be forced to not renew my Trib subscription and this app the next time I can. Please fix this or another reader will go away. And I really do not want to do that.

Crashes once you get to Business/Sports

I have been a faithful Tribune reader on the digital app for three years now. Now I bet on how long it will take to crash. I have yet to get through the sports section without it just shutting down. I can typically tell when it is going to do it because when I zoom in for a story it stays blurry. My iOS is up to date - this app just needs to be fixed. I haven't seen the A&E section in a month.
