What's New in Version 2.7.3
Updated for better iOS7 experience, including fixing the problem in iOS7 where single-tapping to zoom into the article sometimes does not let you zoom back out.
Good but could be better
I'm rarely home, so I like this app because I get the "paper" wherever I am. I appreciate the ability to download the whole paper when wifi isn't always available and the annual fee for the e-edition is less than the desktop version.
But, there is a lot of room for improvement. The desktop version is typically available by 4am. The e-edition often isn't available until after 7am or later -not great if you are traveling east and not good if it isn't available until after 8am. The desktop version gives you the ability to read the papers for the previous 14 days. I like reading editorials and they often counter and refer to a previous editorial. The e-edition only lets you see the last 7 days of print. Also the desktop version allows you to print or email a page of the paper to save important article. The e-edition does not.
Overall, I've been very happy with the Sac Bee e-Edition. But lately, I download for offline reading, and when I'm out of WiFi range and expecting to be able to read articles, I get an error message that says I need to download. Later, back in WiFi range, the download is showing even though I already fully downloaded the day's paper. I hit the download again and nothing happens except the download disappears. I exit the paper, come back to it later, and the download has reappeared.
Cannot access The Bee for weeks now
It requires us to verify our subscription then hangs up saying it cannot contact Press+. We have requested assistance and gotten no response. The ap says readers can continue their iPad subscription to The Bee for $5.99 a month which is what we'd like to do. We really don't want to pay $7.99 a month which seems to be the change concurrent with the issues we are now having. Over the last few years there have been many issues with this subscription (every time they make a change, I think), and little to no support. They're real good at collecting our $, though...
