The Abilene Reporter News E-Edition lets you read Abilene Reporter News on your iOS device just as it appears in print. You can flip through pages and skim headlines as you would the printed edition. But better than that, the Abilene Reporter News E-Edition allows you to enlarge type with the tap of a finger, or jump instantly to the conclusion of a story on another page. You can link to websites mentioned in stories with a single touch, or fire off an e-mail to an address linked from the newspaper. And if you missed the paper one day, don't worry. The Abilene Reporter News E-Editions lets you download past editions, too.
The company wants me to use this daily, but every Sunday, it has problems downloading the current edition with a database error. Trying to report the problem makes for more frustration since they reset my password thinking I have account issues. At one point, they did admit technical problems, but there seems to be no effort to getting this resolved. I stopped the physical newspaper due to exorbitant price increases so this is now my only option and it stinks.
The app only allows access to one device! If you try on a second device an error comes up that you have already reached your maximum devices? I’m canceling just like I did the always a day behind newspaper delivery that went up 41% last price hike!
The print edition is supposed to allow a reader to browse in a daily newspaper format. Doesn't work at all. In fact, it says that the page is broken - and that's it. On the edition section, you can see the daily newspapers, by date (if this worked, it would be great), but when you click on the day you want, the broken page notification comes back up. I've been trying for three days. My mother has macular degeneration and is having trouble reading the Abilene Reporter-News (she's been a subscriber for years and years). Her specialist suggested that she get a reader that is backlit. She has an ipad, BUT she sure can't use it for the print edition because it just doesn't work. So, I went back to the regular Abilene Reporter-News App (there are two apps). I went in through that app and clicked on the e-edition. AND got caught is a loop that goes nowhere. It says welcome to my mom, please enter your password - did that, but then it says to enter her zip code and phone number, so they can sync all accounts. THEN a message comes up and says, this information is already linked to an account. HUH???? AND I can't get any further - it doesn't take me to the "already synced" account, and I have no way to get there. SO, I went to the APP on iTunes and clicked on "APP support" on that App..IT TAKES ME BACK TO THE Abilene Reporter-News App browser. WHAT??? SPLAT!!!! UNBELIEVABLE...
