It just doesn't work

HoytAxtonTrio

I really don't care about features. I just want to read the paper in a straightforward manner. I could with the old app. I can't with the new app. It freezes and crashes constantly. When it does work, it's user unfriendly. I can deal with extra steps to get to reading it, but when I'm reading it please don't make me do anything more than swipe to get to the next page. In the previous version I could resize the viewing area and move around the entire page without having to resize it again. Now it resizes to only what's viewable and then I have to shrink it again then move around the page then resize it. And you guys thought that was an improvement????? Also have to do the same thing when I want to swipe to the next page. In the previous version even if I'd resized it I could swipe to the next page no problem. Now I have to shrink it before I can swipe to the next page. You may have added fancy features, but the basic ability to read the paper seamlessly has been severely compromised. Please fix.
Thanks.

The Globe makes it worse again

Puggledad

4/16 update. It's still an awful app! Has crashed 5 times already this morning.
It's been months and the app is still a piece of crap. It crashes constantly and the digital editor at the Globe obviously doesn't care. What else does he have to do but ensure that the content gets delivered? The new app is a bigger pos than one would believe possible from an institution as big as the Globe. It won't load, is clunky to use, ugly, and totally worse than the previous one which worked fine. Why the Globe changes things that work for things that don't demonstrates a stunningly dysfunctional and incompetent bunch of managers. The Boston Herald app works perfectly. The Globe should call them for advice.

The app is still terrible. An amateurish, cheap, throwaway piece of software that the management obviously could give a crap about. Absolutely frustrating and pathetic.
PS. "Thunder" who wrote a tribute review for this app must be the father of the 8th grader who wrote the software.

This app is crap

Please, Mr. Henry, just give up and buy rights to use the WaPo or NYT app. They're very different from each other, but both are perfectly acceptable. By contrast, this app is crap. I don't mind most of the things that seem to bother other reviewers, but the number of times it freezes, or won't download the newest edition, or doesn't respond to attempts to proceed to the next page and then decides to respond to all of the attempts at once by skipping ahead many pages, or responds to an attempt to enlarge the current page by sort of going back a page and then returning to the current page, or..., is infuriating. The features are acceptable but the bugs are intolerable.

Update: I'm not sure what it means, but since writing the above, I found that simply powering my iPad off and back on makes the app behave much better, so I'm raising my rating accordingly.
