What's New in Version 1.5.7
- Fix start crash for iOS 5 users
I lover reading the morning paper and I love it even more on my iPad. I only wish they would fix some basic problems that have persisted as long as I've used this app.
The first page of nearly every article is obscured by the banner ad at the bottom of the page. None of the other pages are like this. I'm surprised that their sponsors haven't complained. Instead of getting the warm fuzzy for sponsoring my newspaper, I get mad at them for obscuring my article.
The other big "huh" is when I tap on an article and it tells me that I can't read it unless I'm connected to the internet, yet I have a great wifi connection.
I love how easy it is to share articles and email reporters. With a couple of easy fixes, this could be a fabulous app.
The latest version of this app is better than the previous one. I like the way you get a more traditional fee of leafing through the paper. I also like the fact that you can download the paper to your iPad, so you can read it offline. The big fault I found is that there is no way to share the articles to social sites such as Facebook.
SA Express News, close but no cigar
Apparently, the developers lack the programming expertise to correct flaws in the app that prevent the advertiser banner at the bottom of the page from overlaying the first column of the articles. This has been an ongoing problem for months. Even though this is a paid subscription app, it at least appears that the add revenue far overrides your vested interest. Perhaps the app should be for until the developers can present a consistent, readable format. Short of that, I would recommend saving your money.
