What's New in Version 4.10.2
Weather Radar update and bug fixes.
Not worth a subscription
The real question for a newspaper app is whether I'd be willing to pay a subscription to use it. Not yet.
The biggest problem with most newspaper apps is their unwillingness to let go of its website roots and instead act like a newspaper. This means getting rid of the far too numerous subcategories with stories repeated everywhere. Give me the sections you use in the actual paper AND SHOW ME JUST TODAY'S STORIES.
With its current format, I never know, and I'm confident I never do, see every story in today's paper. To do so, I'd have to look through 'Oakland', 'Macomb, 'Politics', etc. etc. and in each tab, scan the headlines and try to remember whether I saw that story yesterday, or the day before... Forget it!
Articles don't track in dynamic view
Dynamic view allows adjustable font size and screen width layout. Easier to read than original view. Unfortunately, not all the letters or words migrate successfully in this view. Pictures or capitalized first letters daunt the translation, necessitating changing from dynamic to original, find the spot, read then go back to dynamic, find the spot and finish. Can you fix this?
Great news at your fingertips
The performance has been good for quite a while now, but I would pay for this app to remove the annoying adds!
