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.
I have subscribed to the Strib for nearly 23 years. I read its print and online formats daily. The functionality of the app is difficult and clunky to navigate requiring more "clicks" than necessary to read an article or return to a section's home page after reading an article. Scrolling article and return functionality - like the Washington Post or the NY Times - is easier, faster, and more intuitive. I often avoid the Strib's app for this reason.
Too hard to share articles
I hope the reason that it seems nearly impossible to share articles with my friends around the country is not because Strib managers somehow think a reader in Atlanta is going to be so curious to read one article I send them that they will pay money to a paper in Minnesota. That's not the world we live in and this road block, and other shortcomings of this app, are major annoyances to those who do pay for subscriptions. Come on guys.
