PressConnects Print Edition app is unstable
When the PressConnects Print Edition app is working correctly, it is a satisfactory app. Unfortunately, the app is unstable. It has two most frustrating behaviors: (1) It doesn’t play well with other apps; and (2) the pages are sometimes fuzzy and unreadable.
(1) While using the PressConnects Print Edition app, you cannot safely open another app, such as the Calendar or Notes or Safari, to, say, make a note regarding something you have just read in the paper, or to look something up on the Internet. When you return to the PressConnects app, you are likely to find that it has locked up or has closed the edition of the newspaper entirely. In either scenario, it will take you up to 20 seconds or more until you are back on the page where you left off. I try to remember NOT to open any other apps while using the PressConnects app. This is inconvenient and doesn’t speak well of PressConnects.
(2) Double-tapping on any newspaper page will expand that page to make the type larger and more readable. However, sometimes when the page is expanded, everything on the page is fuzzy and unreadable. It doesn’t happen to most pages but it does happen almost every day, and on some days, several times. The only solution I have found for this to close the PressConnects app and reopen it, and return to the page that was fuzzy. Almost without fail, that page will now be readable when it is expanded. Obviously, the problem is not with the newspaper copy but with the app.
These things are manageable; but they are daily occurrences and they detract from the pleasure of reading the Press & Sun-Bulletin.
Sign in ridiculous
I don't like how you have to continually sign in with user name and password!!!
I'm out of the country and don't have my username or password for the iPad version and the browser version just locks up when I try to use it!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
