Too sensitive screen transition
A Japanese reader in US
Apart from the expensive subscription fee, the application itself has an annoying technical problem. It causes unintended horizontal screen transition to the next or previous article when I am just trying to scroll vertically the article I am reading. It seems to be caused by too sensitive horizontal finger move sensor. With other App I use, I just don't have this problem. So I think this is Nikkei app problem rather than iOS problem. I actually don't need that function to jump to the next or previous article because I normally go back to the article list and choose which one to read next. I hope Nikkei will enable readers to have an option of switch it off or make it less sensitive.
no ad banner please
i pay more than $49 for the membership to use this app and they recently introduce ad banners to adverise thier affiliate magazines. It's quite annoying and I feel I paid enough money to make it ad free. I hope they get rid of the feature.
Count is off
Free subscribers can supposedly read up to 10 articles, but it seems that the count is off. My October month started with 2 available articles....
