I only read the digital version on Saturday thank God. The site is unstable and crashes often and kicks me out of reading the article. Fix it please.
We hate the permanent advertising ribbon at the bottom of the screen. We hate the pop up which increases the size of the article by barely touching it. We hate the page down then page to right to move from page to page. We used to love the PDF equivalent. Be nice to add some setting options to turn some of this stuff off. You really messed up the old excellent app.
They make you call and wait on hold for an hour.
The latest update took away the option to read the paper outside the app in the browser, which was the only way to actually see what would have been printed on Saturday. Now this awful app is forcing you to open the paper in app and is putting banner ads on top, shrinking further what you can see. This paper already has ads to the point of a 2 page spread giving you 1/4 page of actual news. Why must we have a stupid banner ad on top of the other ads, when I AM PAYING FOR THIS. I AM A PAID SUBSCRIBER. I support local news and have to argue bill cycle after cycle that it is worth the money, when it goes up and up. But I am losing my patience. I am close to killing this and sending the money to NPR. Fix the app or I am done.
Very easy to navigate the paper. Much easier than previous versions. Makes it joy to read!
Awful for reading on an IPad. I can only imagine trying to read this garble on a phone screen. You need to revert back to what you had before you tried to fancy it up. Just give us a newspaper experience not an acid trip!
We are trying to be supportive of the Observer by maintaining an online subscription... However, the app is so poor and not user friendly that we rarely ever use it. How much longer can we justify paying for something we don’t use? There are plenty of good newspaper apps out there. Why can’t McClatchy keep up?
Damm you it is almost impossible to insall
Why is this so accessing my clipboard?
The new iOS 14 privacy protections has busted this app for accessing the clipboard for no reason.
