What's New in Version 2.0.5
Fixed navigation menu bug
Clunky and lacks functionality, accessibility
This app behaves more like a mobile website than an app. It looks sleek but functionality and accessibility leave much to be desired. Articles have no preview so you have to decide whether to click based on headlines that aren't descriptive enough. Load time on articles is very slow as well, even on high speed wi-fi. The old app was ancient but at least it worked.
Timesunion plus app
The Times Union plus app spends more time marketing to get a subscription then allowing an existing paid subscriber to flow through it easily
it loads slowly like a web page and it's not ready for prime time for iPhone use
Some stories repeat multiple times, TU+ stories are listed but not available unless you subscribe. Could be much better.
