What's New in Version 2.0.6
- Bug fixes
- Minor improvements
Previous version was not the best, but at least it was usable/readable without getting a headache. This version is disorganized and difficult to navigate. Take a hint from the Washington Post & other news apps.
UPDATE 5/5/15: Very little improvement. Still chaotic, slow & frustrating to use. Used this app several times per day prior to recent changes, now use it a couple times a week just to see if it has improved. Still enjoying the Washington Post app daily.
Slow to load anything!
I agree with the posted comment below about being able to drive up to the store and get the paper faster then the app loads news articles. Please return to the text version of this app. I read the Seattle Times daily, now I open the app about once a week to see if they have fixed the slowness.
You would expect decent article load times from major newspaper like the Times.
I'm updating my review from 1 star to 2 stars. The organization has improved, there's now a list of articles below the first story. Still needs a LOT of work and some decent information architecture, but at least you're working on it. Still would prefer the old quick text version, but kudos for listening to readers a little bit.
