Customer Reviews


I just got the e-edition app to use on my iPad2. It loads the paper quickly and functions very much like reading a real newspaper. The numerous ways of perusing the paper via controls at the top and side of the pages and using finger swipes are very intuitive and user friendly. I do wish there was a version for iPhone but the format would likely be uncomfortably small anyway.

Still has issues loading current issue

I love reading the paper on the iPad but getting it to load the current issue has been an ongoing problem. Right now I can't download this morning's or yesterday's issues.

iPhone 6 plus

I really like reading the paper on my iPad, but now that I have purchased an iPhone 6 plus I am hoping to no longer use the iPad. Any chance of getting this app to the 6 plus? It works great on my wife’s iPad mini and it not much bigger then my new phone.
