Customer Reviews

Doesn't work properly

Great concept, but it just doesn't work. I can only seem to access today's paper, but need to go back to yesterday. I don't know if there's an option to do this, but I'm guessing it's under "settings" which the app will not allow me to go to. I just get a blank white screen every time I click on it. The current day's paper comes up just fine though.

Terrible app not worth the time

This app is terribly designed. It's as though they took design concepts from 2008 and applied them to today. The app is a large photo of their newspaper. It's also slow. Very slow.
