CANCEL MY LAST REVIEW! ! ! I hadthe wrong app! SORRY😔

App is okay

SLP Crafter

I preferred the previous version of this app where it was easier to see if you had downloaded and read past versions. When I'm on vacation, I don't always get to read the A-J everyday, but could always tell by which editions were on there what I still needed to read. However, I am very grateful to be able to read the paper online!

Terrible app


It takes longer to load this app than it does for me to read the paper.

And, the headline news bar shows little red numbers that only go away if you tap the scrolling headlines ONE AT AT A TIME, which is annoying and a waste of time. On the good side, though, these numbers only show up when the app is loaded...and I usually get tired of waiting before that happens.

I had planned on using this app every day to read the paper, but am instead going to uninstall it.
