What's New in Version 5.3.10
bug fixes and improvements
A little feedback please?!
A quick follow up on the review I'd written about half a year ago (below) - just wanted to say "thanks!" for addressing a number of the problems - still a few loading issues as others have noted, but appreciate your taking care of most of the other issues - much more enjoyable to read now!
I've been hanging in there for a few months waiting for the app developers to take care of the numerous, significant, issues that have been well documented in all of the other reviews. Could someone please let us all know what the timeline is for fixing these problems - should I cancel service for a few months and just rely on my New York Times subscription in the meantime? Very discouraged with the lack of communication about a incredibly poor product (upgrade?!?)- for many years I enjoyed reading the Globe on my iPhone, now I hardly look at it at all given the unbelievably unappealing interface experience. Please show more urgency in fixing this!
Lots of probkems
When it works its great. Two big problems and lots of little ones. When download to read later, like on a plane, 80% of time will later not load unless connected to internet. If keep open while still connected usually works, but if close and open anew in air, out of luck. New problem just discovered. When you delete a paper it is not removed from memory. Checking storage found I had almost 5 gigs of memory use and all papers had been deleted. Trued restarting phone. Still there. Had to remove app and reload to free memory. Little things are inability to link to other pages as in first version, bottom page index shows for 5 seconds and disappears and cannot be brought back, and about 20% of time all pages don't load. Have to remove and download again.
It works, but super-slow
The app works, but it loads really really slowly. And I can't say I like the representation of it. You can't possibly present the whole newspaper to readers on a phone or even a tablet. I read New York Times on my phone everyday, and it works great. Every medium has its idiosyncrasy. Globe shouldn't just dump the print paper on the phone and expect it to works. It reminds me of New Yorker (that uses the same approach) and I hate it. I don't think I'll ever read the Globe in app and just go back to browser on PC whenever I'm working. It's really a pity.
