Riddled with bugs. Cant open with a pop up. Same problems on multiple devices. I have a print subscription and the online version still limits me and is always asking me to re-sign in. Makes it to difficult, time to drop both.

Developer Response ,

We just released a new update today that should solve a lot of the bugs you may have experienced, including problems signing in – give it a try and let us know:

New changes

Very poor quality. Screen constantly jumps around when scrolling. Advertising. implementation very poor and makes the app worthless. Why am I being forced to view intrusive adds in an app I am paying for?? Might be loosing a long time subscriber after this debacle.

Developer Response ,

That bug related to ads has been fixed – give it a try and let us know if resolved:
