Can't access the Paper
Like the other reviews have said, this app fails to download either the most recent issue (so you're stuck on the last one) or doesn't access the servers at all and doesn't get past the loading screen, rendering the app useless. It also forces you to sign in repeatedly at odd times. It's Monday morning, and the app is stuck on Saturday's paper.
I've been an ePaper subscriber for many years now and the app has never been good. When it works it's fine, but when it doesn't you can't access the newspaper. The bad thing is, DMN's newsstand app is incomplete, containing only some of the day's newspaper content and repeating articles from previous days for up to a week, with no way to get rid of them. Overall I give Dallas Morning News an F for technology. I'm going to all DMN and ask for a refund for the days I've been unable to access my subscription.
Better than many
I've tried several newspaper readers and find the DMN reader by Olive to be the best of the lot.
The only problem I have with it is any touch of the screen and you loose your place. This is especially true when reading in the document format ( a great feature which allows you to read a story as a document rather than in the printed paper format) . I wish they would remove the side swipe feature from the document format so a mistouch of the screen does not move you to another story.
***December 2015 Update:how can a city the size of Dallas have a newspaper that a) can't deliver my paper on time so I have to switch to the online paper and b) have an app that is unpredictable and inconsistent. I never know from day to day if the words on the screen will sharpen up enough to read. An embarrassment please fix!****
I was happy with the old app. If you decide to update an app, why don't you make it better. First of all I have to sign in multiple times while reading the paper. More importantly, when you click on an article the movement and spinning to get to the next page is unnecessary.
Sometimes when you click on an article there is no response. Can you make some options for people that don't like all of the animation?
Please make an option to go back to the prior app, it was much better!
Update: I am STILL having a horrible time using this app. All I want to do is be able to read the paper!!! I'm having a problem just getting to the current days paper.
