Unable to read offline.

I anticipated that if I download the paper at home, I should be able to then read it offline on the bus or train but stupidly, the app wants to reconnect online before allowing you to open the app. Extremely frustrating and disappointing. Why bother having the download feature at all. Please fix.

No good

I start the app and then have to wait ages while the latest edition loads. And they expect me to pay $15/month but I also get saddled with intrusive advertising. And I mean really intrusive. Like go to an article and get taken to an ad page first!

You need to have a good look at how The Guardian have implemented their newspaper. And you need to get it on Newsstand on iOS 5 so at least the latest edition downloads in the background and is ready for me to read when I want it.

I signed up for a 3 month free trial but if this is what I get I'm not signing up for the real product. It's not worth it.

Excellent App

Once again it is good to see the Australian adopting features from the Wall Street Journal app from its News Corp parent. The app itself an excellent app, and is a real improvement on the previous version. It is finally good to be able to share articles from all places in the app.
