What's New in Version 1.20
- Bug fixes
Strib doesn't care
This app has not been updated in the past year. I contacted them last year mentioning the article headlines get cutoff when I view them on my iPad. They thanked me and suggested I try their e-edition. The headlines are still cut off in the app.
Other issues with this app: photos are often distorted as well info missing from articles! (Recent "then and now" story on old photos of streets in Mpls, the app version never identified the street corner in the photo, but when I looked at the e-edition there was a bullet point identifying the corner as 8th & Hennepin.)
Lastly, I love it when a 20-something writes a glowing review and assumes the problem is obviously user-error for anyone over 40 (someone who has read the paper for 20+ years). Since that 20-something is so tech savvy and probably an employee, why don't you do something about getting those headlines to wrap on the iPad version?
Great digital news
This app is great! I'm pretty confused about the bad reviews, to be honest. Some background: I am a twenty-something who both loves print media (for the in depth local coverage and the great investigative journalism), and is comfortable with technology. So when these other reviewers say the app is clunky, or needs too many clicks, first consider the fact that they have been reading the strib for 20+ years in print and might not be the most competent tablet users. From my perspective, it works great and is the same great news the strib has to offer, but in a convenient format.
Great for news, but wish text size could be adjusted
This is a great app for keeping up on news and developments. I use it every day and especially when traveling. My only complaint is that the text is very hard to read on my iPad Mini. If there is a way to adjust the text size (like there is for the Star Tribune app for the Kindle or for other iOS news apps like the WSJ), I haven't found it. This would be a 5 star review if that option was available.
