Customer Reviews

I want to like this, but . . .

I am a fan of The Globe. I thoroughly enjoy the newspaper and have been reading it for years in paper format. I have been switching all of the publications that I read from print to virtual. I have tried to do the same with The Globe. I have subscribed to the epaper Globe for over 12 months. When this app works, it is terrific. Has the look and feel of the print edition, plus many helpful electronic features. Unfortunately, this app has difficulty reliably downloading content If this happened once per month, I would understand. However, it happens once or twice each week. Thus, I give it three stars. I sincerely hope that they fix the technical glitches. At that time, this is a five star.

Good but not Great

Love having access to my beloved paper on my iPad!

There's only two things that drive me crazy:
1. It is practically impossible to download a prior issue of the paper UNLESS you know to click on today's publication date and change it to the date you desire. This should be more accessible and more intuitive!
2.the inability to rearrange or sort my downloaded issues.

Please consider adding this functionality to a future update, it's the only thing standing between a four-star and five-star review!

Very well done, almost there

My only complaint is that the text is often truncated at the end of a paragraph, and words run together. Unlike many of the other reviewers, I have been using this app for several months and have had no technical problems with downloads or freezes. I like the epaper format, it is a nice change from the NYT, WSJ, etc. who reformat the paper for the iPad.
