This is just pathetic

The old app was so easy to use and read. The new interface is difficult to navigate and filled with so much advertising to the point of being useless. We pay for the electronic edition... and it is still filled with extra ads that you cannot skip.

We will just go to another news source.

Print function

Please address printing scaling in your next update. When I try to print the crossword from the app, it formats to 2 pages...kinda hard to fill in a crossword by flipping back and forth. Thank you.

What Were They Thinking?

Frustrating, exasperating software garbage. Getting the current edition takes more time than reading the paper. I have to close out the app and re-open several times to get it to update, if it even does.
