Worse than before
I like to read in page view--or at least I did in the old version. Now the print is not sharp and becomes even more blurry when zoomed in. The page is "jittery" when trying to manipulate the zoom and position making it nearly impossible to zoom in on a section of the page without it resetting the page or turning to another page altogether. Page turning arrows near the bottom are unnecessary as pages can be turned with a swipe like before. The arrows cause inadvertent page turns and interfere with reading near the edge of the page. I just finished reading an article from an archive page that had a link to follow for more articles on the same subject. When I clicked the link it asked me to sign in! I thought I was already signed in as I was using the app! This is supposed to be an improved app, but the functionality of the old app worked better for me.
This app makes reading the paper just about impossible. The issues are too numerous to list but here are four.
The insulting, and flashing, ads at the top of the screen that you cannot turn off even though you have a paid subscription.
You never know what will happen when you touch the screen. Will the app show the previous page, the next page, zoom in, zoom out, or show an ad?
The translucent images that obscure the newspaper text.
The fuzzy font that only gets worse when you zoom in.
It seems this company truly hates their customers and this product is not worth even one star.
Very Poor Upgrade!
The newest version of this app is absolutely the worst since I started using the original Augusta Chronicle app on my iPad.
* Navigation is very clunky and not intuitive.
* We're paying for this app, yet have to close additional advertisements just to see the overview of each page.
* We've also lost the ability to see the additional and full-size pictures that accompany each article.
* This is just the tip of the iceberg for the list of negatives.
The latest version is definitely a step backward and may cause me to drop my subscription at renewal time. Fix it!!!
