Also cumbersome to use edition while using multiple iPad screens
I prefer to read the print version. This app is a significant downgrade from the previous version. Selecting the option to view the print version takes you out of the App and into your browser and is terrible to use. Give me a version that allows viewing the print version within the App and functions like the old App. I will likely not renew my subscription if this is not fixed!
Every since they “fixed” some minor bugs 4 days ago (10-17-19), it is impossible to access the digital replica of the print version if using updated Apple iOS with Safari browser. Doesn’t work when using Google Chrome either. In addition, all this app does is open a a link to a web page. If you don’t close the browser window after reading the online duplicate of the print version, you end up with multiple browser windows open. The older version was clunky, but at least one could read the paper.
I try to read their stories on Fb and get told I cannot without a subscription. Ok. Fine I open the app and try to read it there and get the same thing. It’s frustrating to say the least. So I see no reason to keep the app or bother with them. I can get the same information from any of the local news stations
The user experience on an iPad is terrible. They need to start over and think more about their reading customer because if they lose them they will lose their advertising customer.
How do you make a poor quality paper worse? Put out a terrible app is how. Slow loading, jumps around page, difficult to read the paper. Not much left of the old Eagle Newspaper, now the app is even worse then the news.
I don’t think you can make it any worse, go back to it looking like a paper. No way to find what new, or what’s on the front page.
The Eagle recently “improved” this app. Ha! The “newspaper” version comes up unfocused and the is supposed to sharpen up I guess. What it does on my wife’s and my iPads it stay unfocused. It does the same thing on my iPhone. Good grief, fix this app before we decide to cancel the subscription.
My husband has always gone to the comics first. If he touches the little square to get the page that looks like the newspaper, the print is so small that it cannot be read. Also, part of the page is covered with ads.
I absolutely HATE the new design of this app. Bring back the original that actually looked like a newspaper. This new one makes you jump all over the place to read the stories.
