File size

I delete each issue after reading but the data file keeps growing. It's now the biggest file on my iPad. I can't seem to rid myself of the old issues.

Nice Try

This is a pretty good presentation of the Blade to read on days when they don't print the actual paper but navigation is really flunky. You can't read any stories when they first appear because the font is minuscule but when you tap to enlarge the font the text tends to jump all over the place. The same thing happens when you use your fingers to enlarge the text. In addition, the pages aren't very well delineated so you accidentally keep moving ahead or back one page, frequently when you're right in the middle of a story. This would be a pretty good app if they could fix all these navigation problems.

Great App

Great App, vastly improved over the previous one. No reason to have the paper edition delivered. Hopefully the fact that it's Monday morning and I'm still downloading the Sunday edition is a minor glitch and won't be the norm.
