Globe brings balanced world class journalism every day … they also have one of the best digital experiences
Update: Fixed issue of links from Internet mostly now allowing the app to open up with my sub (except linked articles from Facebook still don’t recognize my sub). As of April 14 2022, the G&M app itself (!!!) no longer recognizes my own subscription for certain articles and boots me back to web browser page which is paywalled and required my password again. Pls fix!
As I scroll through the list Of stories, I see lots of good stuff, and then as I continue I can’t help but noticing that the ‘good stuff’ keeps repeating. But what makes it annoying is that there is still stuff that is new. Re-presenting stories that I don’t want to read prevents me from finding stores that I do. How about you present the story once and if I want to read it, I will. You don’t need to try to trick me into it later. Then there’s notifications. I have mine set to breaking news only. I keep getting “the Sunday morning read” and other editorial content pushed to me. Don’t want that. Stated I didn’t. Then unsubscribing is deliberately difficult. Most apps let you do it, or you do it thru App Store. This one you have to dig around to find the number and then call. Very annoying.
I ave the App and a sunbscription but can’t make it work in my iPhone. What’s wrong?
The app has recently started jumping to advertisers web pages and/or apps as the user scrolls, regardless of whether or not an add is “clicked”. So impossible to read an article from beginning to end without interruption.
I just read a article the above individual wrote about the City of Houston,TX and “The most hated team in Baseball”. I would like for her boss to pull and read it to get his/her impression Of how she totally degraded our City along her path to cast gloom and destruction to our Astros. The individual she refers to with such grace has been fired by Astros, he was wrong with his remarks and dealt with accordingly. She more than made her point, but why did she trash our City in its entirety. As much as she wants all who read her article to hate the Astros, I feel sorry for her to write such a article obviously thinking she was doing good. Michael Kruep 346-666-8628
If you have dark mode turned on , hide your eyes. This app does not honor that system-wide setting. iOS 13 has been beta for almost 8 months, what have you guys been doing all this time. Dark mode was not a last minute surprise, but yet you are treating it as such.
In iOS 13.1.1 if you select dark mode articles render with grey text on a black background. It makes it very difficult to read the articles. I like dark mode. I like reading the Globe on my phone. I want both. Seems like it should be a simple fix. Fingers crossed for an app update soon.
All the years I lived in the US I somehow, even before the internet, stayed connected with Canada. The Globe and Mail helped. It reflects us and our culture well.
