Here’s what’s new in USA TODAY for iPad v3.0:

Deeper, richer and more visual storytelling as well as some great new features…
- Choose your news headlines view: scan the headlines with “List” or lean back and enjoy the image-rich “Grid”
- Save your stories: Not enough time to finish reading an article? Do you have to power down your iPad on the plane? No problem, just save the article and read it later!

How do you read the news? The new app lets you choose your news view: “list” or “grid”. The “list” view will give you a quick scan of the news in the morning when you’re on the go, and the “grid” view offers a visual look into the day’s stories when you have more time to kick up your feet.

Looking for quick access to the sports scores, Snapshots and more? Your favorite USA TODAY features are always close at hand - you can access them via a new sliding panel on the left side of the screen. Customize the panel to fit your interests, and hide it when you’re scanning the headlines.

How about the weather? Well, it’s still cool! USA TODAY has re-imagined its weather coverage with:
- A large, resizable weather map featuring radar and satellite animation
- 10 day forecast
- Hourly forecast
- Weather alert support

I'm surprised it's free

I've had a traveling tradition. I always read my hotel copy of USA today cover to cover. This was usually the only time I read it which was maybe a coupla times a year. I always enjoyed that vacation pastime.
So, Once I had my iPad one, I got this app. As the iPad one endured software obsolescence even though the iPads hardware itself was bulletproof. I grudgingly graduated buying my new iPad Air and the experience with this USA TODAY app is better than ever. I'm amazed the amount of content that is free here. Yah, there are ads to plow through occasionally much like a paper edition would have and I'm cool with that. Thanks for the content for my price paid.

Too Few Articles, Ads Way Too Intrusive

Really, the only good thing about USA Today (I don't do the crosswords) is that it is free. It has few articles, sometimes repeated 3 or more times in different sections, plus a few more times in video format with forced commercials for each. And the same stories linger for days and days.

And the ads -- I used to be able to cope with the motion distraction by covering the bottom of my screen with an "ad blocker", a folded strip of paper. With current version, the ads appear and distract with dancing or rolling images throughout the article. When did the ad industry decide that annoying sells product. Not to me.

At least it doesn't crash much any more, but I had to buy a new iPad to use it.

Snapshots not working

After the latest update everything worked flawlessly for me. Unfortunately, that lasted only about two weeks. Now, the Snapshots applet once again will not show any results. Additionally, when a new poll question appears, the optional answer blocks are non-responsive until I relaunch the applet and immediately select a response. If I hesitate too long, the boxes are again non-responsive.
I've deleted the entire app, re-started my iPad, and downloaded and installed the USA Today app but the problem persists.
Now I'm wondering if another apps update has effected USA Today. Is this possible?
