Not quite there yet

I still would like to click on the page view and read the article as it was in the older version. Looking at the page view entices you to read articles if accompanied by a picture. You then have to click on the articles and find the article in the list. Also, you can't get the list of obituaries by city/town unless you go to the page view and zoom out.

One other issue I keep coming across is on Sunday. The last 3 weeks the paper was not downloadable unless I deleted and reinstalled the app. Why is there no advanced warning of this if this is going to be an issue moving forward?

You'll get it right and I do enjoy getting the Globe no matter where I am in the world.

I've had it!

I'm a forgiving person, but the Globe's e-paper is a joke. I tried to convert physical delivery to only to receive emails that my payments didn't go through, while on the phone they said "no problem!". So I subscribed through Apple. Now I have a week left on that subscription but can't read the paper I paid for because it wants me to renew, which can't be done because I HAVE a current auto-renewable subscription.
AND... the "Articles" button, had disappeared again two days ago. ALSO, every time I switch to a different app for a moment the paper closes without marking my place. Needs a LOT of work. I've cancelled..


Another night of fighting with this app. It used to be good, now it is so bad. Let's start. Can't read on iPad in landscape, so for this app only I read it uncomfortably in potrait view. Article views don't exist for many stories, and they often don't have the photos from the paper view. There are no continuation links in Paper View anymore as others have stated. It takes longer to download than any other paper app. Sunday papers are not available until who knows when, I have to get on with my life before they are available (after 10 am for me), so I read on Sunday nights now. Please.........
