It has easily fixable issues

1. Constantly says cannot connect to App Store.
2. Requires login every time you open it. For many years applications have been able to store login credentials.
These two major, but easily fixable annoyances drove me to uninstall it.
Let me know when you get your act together and I’ll give it another try.

Print Subscriber

Subscribed to the print version strictly because it cost less and included a digital subscription but good luck getting it to work with the app. I was chatting with support tonight who gave me an alternate way to set up my account to work with digital but even that did not work. So frustrating.

Without zooming app is not good

For some reason the removed the zoom function a while back and now you can’t read the text on most articles. Otherwise it was a decent app. Whoever made that decision has cost them many subscribers including me since I won’t renew.
