Used to be my favorite, but...


I'm formally from Pittsburg and I used to get the CC Times daily. I've since moved away, now residing in Reno. I found this app a while back and it was just like reading the newspaper of the old days. I've got several news apps but this was my favorite because of newspaper layout. All of a sudden, it is blocking me, asking for an account name and password, which I never had, and it doesn't allow me to create one. Am I supposed be a subscriber to the paper to get access? That doesn't make sense, why would I then need the app? Too bad.

A start, but not perfect


I love the newspaper format, so finally getting to read it on my iPad is great. The app is a bit glitchy and sometimes pages are blurry and the text version doesn't download. The formatting in the text version is readable, but not good. It needs to strip out the formatting (such as manual line breaks, etc) it pulls from the store--which I presume were added when formatting it for news print. The app also won't load inline images in text mode. It tries, but it ends up with a blank box.

I hope in the future the app is more than an exact duplicate (recycle) of the printed edition. There's no reason for black and white pages (especially images) in the iPad version. It would be nice got have full color on all pages.

It's 90% of a good app with the other 10% being infuriating

e-book lover

After the past few days I'm downgrading my '2 star review to a '1'. If I could make it a -5 Star I would. I can't get in to the paper for more than 30 seconds; and it takes a loooong load time to get to that point. It's completely unreadable as a paper and so maddening I think it's raising my blood pressure. There's no way to get into the app to look for a tech support link, of course.

I really don't say this lightly, but they should fire the people responsible for this app.

My previous review is below......

Mostly, the app does what it is supposed to do - shows a page by page display, and an index to allow jumping from section to section. Maybe the slow load/response time is on my side, rather than the software.
That said, the crashes are maddening. I'm writing this review because I was bounced out of the app twice in 3 minutes. .. It makes me want to drop the subscription. Also, from time to time, the pages come in and out of focus repeatedly, like some demonic device aimed at giving you a major case of eyestrain. Please,CCT, fix this app!!!
