Ratings and Reviews
Latest Update Not an Improvement
I am not sure the the latest version is actually an improvement over the previous one. Main complaints are: (i) why in the world with the “Main news” section have so many articles on the Spurs? All of those belong solely in the sports section. It makes no sense for users looking for latest news to have to wade thru a Main section cluttered with Spurs articles. (ii) The “Main News” section, instead of showing stories from today’s print edition, contains a lot of really old articles (the same ones I have been seeing for weeks). For example, today (Jan 21) there is still being carried in the Main News section a Jan 2 article on the first baby born in S.A. on New Year’s Day and another old article on an old Mayor - why in the world???
Moving to a UI consisting of large tiles makes scanning stories to decide which ones to read much more tedious. On my iPad Pro the home page Top News section displayed the complete tile for just one story. What a waste of screen space. No longer having a split view with story titles on one side and the text of the selected article on the other side also makes using the app more of a chore. There is also no visual queue which stories have been opened. Since stories appear in multiple sections it makes it a pain to quickly spot stories that have not been opened. I’d go back to the old design if I could. Please add an option for a mode to present stories in a list format w/o the picture tiles that has a visual queue to mark stories that have been opened.
No such thing as being able to see what is happening NOW. If you go to “top news” one sees a few local news items then an ungodly number of sports, food, etc. NO national news whatsoever. A second grader could have come up with a better format. Obits are at least 2 days behind. That’s up to date for sure! These issues are on my iPhone and iPad. Sorry but I don’t walk around with a laptop in my back pocket.
The sight is total rubbish.
