What's New in Version 3.1
Bug fixes and behind-the-scenes improvements, including fixes for layout issues on section fronts.
Should be so much better
- after tapping a headline, there is no indication anything is happening, so you don't know if you should tap again or just stare at the screen and wait.
- considering there's new news every day in the print version, 1/3 of the stories in the app are 2-4 days old
- despite not downloading the print version, saving articles or saving columns for myPost access, the app still balloons to over 2.5 gigs in size. I have to delete the app every few months. Deleting data doesn't always work.
-comics section is very nice, although if you DO save your fave comics, you can't just scroll through them.
Bring this version to the iPhone!!
Now that the iPhone screens are bigger, having the print edition on them makes so much more sense. Put the iPhone version in the newsstand too, it makes zero sense to have the same newspaper in two completely different places on my iOS devices.
Pitifully out of date
I deleted the app and re-downloaded it. It seemed to have fixed the problems, but now it has the habit of not updating with the latest news. It is Saturday and it comes up with Monday's news (olds?). And it gives no indication that it is updating, if it is. I've waited five minutes with no joy.
My expectation is that it would update the category that you have selected, old it first, then load the rest of the categories in background.
