Randomly logs out and cuts off articles

Overall not bad but sometimes when clicking on article links, it says to log in to read it even when already logged in. There’s even a link to “log out” on the same screen which logs you out and takes you back to the sign in page.
Also, frequently find that the last part of articles are cut off; the app won’t let you scroll further to read the end of the articles. Please fix these. Thank you. ,

Ridiculously bad: how to lose subscribers

I am a new print and digital subscriber, and this is the worst newspaper app I’ve tried yet. I love getting the print paper the old fashioned way, but I want access on my electronic devices, too. DOES NOT WORK. Seriously, it makes me log in every single time and now it won’t recognize my subscription as valid — even though I double-/ triple-checked that I’d signed in properly. This is anti-marketing. It frustrates me and makes me think a subscription is not worthwhile. Don’t put a bad app out there — it makes me want to cancel the subscription altogether. This is June 26th. See whether anything changes and when.

Needs a lot of work

The so-called new and improved app is en epic fail. It’s virtually impossible to read more than a few stories without the screen freezing up. Logging in and out does not fix the problem, nor does restarting my iPhone.

I rarely have time to sit and read the traditional paper, so I primarily rely on digital methods. Both the mobile version of the website and this new app make it virtually impossible for me to get my news from the Honoluu Star-Advertiser, which I love to read daily.

Please work out the bugs so that you don’t lose enthusiastic readers like me.
