Major space hog
Consumes gigabytes of space if you don't monitor it carefully. I've selected the setting to store only three editions offline but, at last count, there were 29 editions in storage taking up about 1.5GB.
Bug fix required
The Harrisburg Patriot News app opens to the home page of the Omaha World Herald on Apple iPad. The Patriot News has difficulty delivering the physical paper on a regular basis and the app was always a backup. Now they can't even deliver the digital version.
Failed to Load
After recent iOS update this app would not load any version of the Harrisburg Patriot-News. It did load the Omaha edition which does nothing for me here in Harrisburg, PA. I. Did get a message 'No feed found'.
