The app has gotten worse with each successive update. The latest restricts the viewing of the print edition to a 2 inch by 4 inch window on an iPad screen, absolutely unreadable. Even before, they filled a third of the screen with ads and popups. I should not have to navigate through ads on a paid subscription. If you want to see what a newspaper app should look like, look at the Washington Post or the New York Times. This app is trash.
Not sure it could get worst but it just did. Hard to use, doesn’t hold settings and preferences and is difficult to find stories.
The Sac Bee App (which we are more than encouraged to download several times in every delivered print edition), needs a search option!
This app is terrible... I have has so many instances where it has glitches when I try and read in newspaper view. I don’t want to kil a tree. How hard would it be to just let us download and read online?
The online version is impossible to read as there is no room for the actual content on the screen so I have to download the e-edition to make readable. I tap on icon and today’s paper is there. I tap download and screen goes dark like its downloading but it’s not. I then have to go to the upper left corner, hit e edition, find today’s edition and then hit download. What a pain. In fact every few weeks when I have to re-login there are new issues. This is the worst most inconsistent app ever.... idea what they wetTakes 4-5 clicks to get to the e-edition which then hangs for awhile if it even comes up. The e-edition is unreadable so you have to download to make readable. Then the download then hangs up assuming it comes up. It’s a horrible app. Waste of time. A 3rd rate app by a 5th rate newspaper. Yesterday’s news tomorrow is their slogan.
Keep on improving it but you can figure that out by looking at the few papers remaining that really count.
Site is often down and regularly makes changes requiring you to Change your password.....then often cannot get bad in. In fact, down right now!
I regularly read several online newspapers. I don’t understand why the Bee app is so inferior to the others. Better technology is obviously widely available— why doesn’t the Bee use it. The newspaper in the capital of the state of California should be a leader.
I have tolerated an unstable,user unfriendly product too long. Today, I asked to cancel. The future of your company is digital, but you have shown no ability to present a customer friendly product. Publishing articles that claim you have a great new version doesn’t make it true.
I am a royal reader since hard copy version, but the current version is unreadable. Will it get fixed or do I need to cancel my subscription since I cannot read the paper. Thank you
