E-paper not readily available offline


The old version of the app would download the entire e-paper for reading offline every time the e-paper was opened. In the mornings as I would head out of the house, I just needed to open the app and give it a minute or two and I would have an offline version of the paper to read throughout the day. This new version requires that you jump through some hoops in order to download a pdf version of the paper which opens in the Safari browser. Not the easiest way to get an offline version, and sometimes that even that version won’t open later in the day without an internet connection. !!!Please make it easier to read the paper offline!!!

Liked old app better


As prior reviewer notes, I to updated my Ipad and the old app that is an exact replica of the newspaper appears to no longer be available. Instead in this app you can go to the upper right hand menu and click eNewpaper which boots you over to Safari and downloads the newspaper into Safari. Thats ok if you have wifi but say your getting on a plane, the old app kept the entire newspaper available to read offline in newspaper format but Safari doesn't do that.

Works but not customizable

Monster Mix

I upgraded my IPad and was greeted with this new app. Overall it works fine. But I want to read the paper not listed articles. The app show give the user the ability to customize to their preferences. Sadly this does not.
