Update: Beware no globe magazine available on e paper

Based on recent reviews and personal experience, I am not upgrading to this version! For a while it improved. I will say that Parade Magazine is now available. I was also. For a while, able to read the Globe Magazine in paper view along with my slow to download paper. Now, the Globe Magazine, one of my favorite parts of the paper, is no longer available. I can find some of the articles on the internet, which takes away from the magazine experience. Considering the money I pay for my subscription, this is unacceptable. Why doesn't the Globe respond to any of the poor reviews?
Previous review:
First, it's 9:00. Where is my Sunday paper? This e paper is tied to my paper subscription. I rely on it while my family members read the paper copy. I will say emphatically that I loved the previous version. This update, however is terrible. It crashes. It lacks many of the features I previously enjoyed. For example, I found out how to separately download the regional sections after considerable trial and error. However, the Parade and Globe Magazines are not available on the e paper app!!! There are no tutorials explaining this. I also can no longer continue reading an article by touching the "continued on " page number / no more hyperlinks. General navigation through sections is more awkward. I am considering giving up on it altogether if it does not improve. Take my advice and do not update your Globe e paper!!

Reinstall old version

For those of you who wish they hadn't upgraded to the new version of the Globe ePaper app, there is a way to reinstall the old version if you have access to a copy of the old app (IPA file) from a friend or family member. First download the freeware SynciOS Manager to your computer. You can then use SynciOS to transfer (backup) the old app from their iOS device to your computer and then install the old app from your computer to your own iOS device. SynciOS Manager requires iTunes to work and it is a Windows program so Mac users would need to run it using Boot Camp or Parallels until the Mac version becomes available. I made the mistake of auto updating the ePaper app back in April. Fortunately my sister still had version 3.2.3 (by Newspaper Direct) on her iPad mini. I deleted version 4 (miLibris) from my iPad mini and used SynciOS Manager to restore the old version. I've been using the old version with iOS 8.3. The continuation links to articles work and there have been no problems downloading the paper (even on Sundays). The Globe magazine shows up in the Sunday issue and printing the crossword puzzle is possible. There is no need to constantly resize the text when using the old version.

No support for this Ap.

I do not understand why nothing is being done to make this Ap usable. Read the reviews from the readers. The reason I gave it one star is because the wanted to be able comment. If a negative rating were possible, that's what this Ap deserves

Is no one listening.
Cannot download today's paper
Will someone at the Globe please please address the continuing problems with the ePaper. It continues to be a burden to read. The 2 page spread is so hard to read. Having to zoom in and out in order to read the page constantly is tiring.

The following are my posts regarding the problems with the ePaper. I spite of the numerous complaints and poor ratings, nothing has been done to fix the problems. The format and navigation make the paper too labor intensive and difficult to read.

This morning I tried to read the ePaper. Although I did not think it was possible, the format has gotten worse. 2 page landscape is back. Unable to zoom in when in 2 page view.

I could go on and repeat the previous comments regarding the Ap. I have a suggestion; follow the structure of the USA Today ePaper. It is easy to read,excellent navigation etc. The Globe Ap is an embarrassment. Hello, is anyone listening?. If I could give the Ap a zero star I would.
