This new app is awful, can’t find anything without digging. And I can’t get the replica version to load most of the time. If I am lucky enough to to find and load it, the content gets very blurry when you click on it and takes a long time to focus. THIS IS NOT AN IMPROVEMENT! Please go back to the previous replica version which at least worked!!
The CLT Observer app keep getting worse. I like to download the paper to read on my frequent flights. With the latest, I can even open the downloaded version without a WiFi connection. I also can’t zoom in on an article. The last version had some issues, but much preferred it over this one. Please bring that one back!
Well; you guys have done it. Inthe words of Minnie Pearl, youve “fixed something that wasn’t betokened”. And in so doing, you have succeeded in removing me and mine from the Eedition readership. I happen to be computer savvy, but it now takes me longer to find today’s Edition than it does to read it. Gone are the days when I could take my IPad to the beach with me and have full assurance that I wouldn’t miss a thing from back home nor elsewhere. It was so simple to look over the previous two or so weeks. I’m sure this was a business decision. But, brothers you have certainly given your Eedition readers the “business”. Enjoy your money, McClatchy....and please think of me when you spend it. BillB Branner, Charlotte
Really does not deserve a star at all 0 stars!!! Why did you change the delivery format. Much harder to read and navigate. Why can’t I get my paper in newspaper form today. It just goes to a blank page. This new format is so much worse than the previous one. I like to read a paper that looks like a paper and when I use that option it takes forever to show clear print when you turn the page. But today I can’t get the newspaper form at all. Please go back to the old form or improve this one so it is user friendly. Very disappointed.
The prior version (olivesoft) worked well. In the current version the print is so blurry that unless you are willing to watch a 20 sec add, you can not open a story . I do not get the print version because the price for such a left slant on all news is so dense that i would only read the sports section anyway. The only thing “big “ about the articles is the picture of the writer.
Working only part of the time. My subscription shared with my wife. Just today at breakfast she could get paper but I didn’t. Never have this problem with Washington Post or NY Times. Neither the app nor the morning email will open this morning just a blank page. Rebooted IPad and cleared my catch still blank page. Great way to start the day.
Was a big fan of the replica version. The new app is not intuitive, difficult to move around and find what you’re looking for.
I still prefer to read the replica version. However I’m about done. The new app is horrible. The time it takes to focus the content is very distracting. The loss of the old app was unfortunate. The old app was much better in two ways...First the screen real estate for the actual content was significantly diminished. Second, the big ad border at the bottom of the screen eats up more screen real estate and is, at times, animated with rolling ads. The animation is very distracting. If I stop reading the replica I will likely cancel as news comes from everywhere nowadays. Thx....
Terrible app. Takes a degree to figure out how to use it. Not user friendly at all.
The new app couldn’t be more cumbersome to use. I would give it 0 stars if it was an option. Please fix or I will not renew my e-subscription.
