What's New in Version 2.8.7
- Fixed a bug from iOS10 that affected your ability to navigate to Back Issues and read previous editions
This is perhaps the worst app I use. It crashes at least once each time I read the paper, for no apparent reason. The crashes appear to be associated with zooming in on an article to read it---maybe it crashes after a certain number of times zooming in. I no longer have the endless login loop problem. Thought that was fixed, but recent reviews show some users still have that issue. Unfortunately I don't see a realistic alternative for reading a facsimile of the print version on my iPad. I have never before posted a review of an app, but this one has finally annoyed me enough to do so. The convenience of reading the paper on my iPad is almost outweighed by the inconvenience of the crashes.
So I left that review some time back. I also spoke by phone to their IT person and complained about the crashes. Apparently they don't care, since nothing has changed with the crashes. In addition, on about 1/3 of mornings today's paper doesn't load. Instead my iPad thinks for two or three times as long, and then up pops the paper I was reading most recently. I guess it's like the big banks. When you have a near monopoly, you don't have to worry about consumer desires or complaints.
Bad and Statesman can't or won't fix it
I had hopes for the app when they finally increased the resolution a year or so ago, but apparently that was the extent of their work. Most recent problem with this terrible app is that it now takes a long time to load -- usually more than once because it also frequently crashes.
I complained again to Customer Service which this time sent me instructions about Safari -- not the app. (They suggested using Chrome, not Safari. Apparently, they can't bother to make the web paper work on multiple browsers.) When I repeated that I was talking about the app, not using a browser -- no further response on the subject.)
This newspaper has been showing signs of going out of business for a while now -- laying off staff, closing their Austin printing facility. Eventually, they will be internet only, so why won't they at least try to make the apps work? Apparently, they are either too dumb to care or too afraid to spend any money. Cox must be a terrible company to be so short-sighted.
Crash for months
This app crashes on the iPad in the comic section after 10 seconds of opening. I have sent many emails to the paper. The last one said there was no problem. This app is horrible and the customer service is the worst!!!
I have read the reviews and I'm not the only one experiencing this. Why not fix it?
