Ad's prevent all use

Hey NR, I'd pay double the full price subscription if I could get this without advertising. The ad content consistently causes the app to freeze in a white screen ensuring that users see neither content nor ad. The magazine portion works a little better but the website portion of the app has recently become unusable. One can start off reading an article without issue, but once the first or second ad scrolls into view, it is all over. I give 3 stars because of course the content is excellent and worth some frustration, but the delivery is worthless.

A real piece of crap

As others say, the numerous ads crash my iPad when trying to read "the corner". Totally useless. The magazine part is not much better. Have to dig to see which cover I'm trying to read. Can't delete an issue. Doesn't remember where I left off. Numerous complaints via the app but apparently management doesn't care if we all start to cancel. Weekly Standard had an issue when they recently changed the add but it was corrected in a few days. NR problems have been since the last update. If not fixed soon I'm out of here!

Worst News App of all time!

Wow! Your app is HORRIBLE!!!!!! That whirring noise I hear when I try to read an article is William F. Buckley spinning in his grave. Have you no shame!?!? This app is an insult to the man’s memory. Why would I want to subscribe? So I can throw money at a worthless product? I would like to at least be able to read one article without the app repeatedly crashing and freezing. The Obamacare website works better than this app! At least liberals can do one thing that obviously conservatives are unable to do and that is to create a workable news app!
