Just nope. Needs Apple News support already

The Boston Globe sure has had its fair share of problems lately, but the fact that they're not really embracing the digital age at all is just sad. This app crashes constantly and just hasn't worked for me for over a year. However, I don't even need to use it anymore anyway since now I use Apple News for all of my local news needs. There are plenty of other local Boston based sources that are just fine. All of the major US papers are on it except for the Globe, it seems, which is really strange and disappointing. Now that Apple News will support subscriptions this year, I'm hoping the Globe will finally get on it, but considering their track record, I don't have high hopes at all.

A total fail

I had to upgrade from the actually usable, navigable older version I used on my iPad 1 - now I must suffer the unbelievably lame, bug ridden, reading app I have ever used. Navigation is maddening, unresponsive to repeated swipes, the page display at the bottom is illegible And disappears when I touch it then takes me nowhere. I could go on. An unsightly embarrassment to the Globe people - the latest update did nothing to fix any of the dysfunction of this useless ereader - is anyone at the globe reading these reviews? For chrissakes fix this thing! And apologize to all of us victims of your incompetence. Def not nearly enough said...

Crashes before it even opens

I get a white loading screen for a few seconds, then it crashes/closes. There is no error message or clue to what the problem is. I have the iPhone 6 with up to date iOS. I've tried removing, rebooting and reinstalling the app with no luck. Tried on mobile network and wifi. The old version 4 of this app worked well, but it seems the 'new from the ground up' version 5 should be still be in beta. Any way to get version 4 back?
