Much like the home delivery, the express news just can’t deliver. This version does not contain the same content as the print version. Most days the content cannot be accessed or requires multiple sign ins. The express news can’t get dependable delivery to paid subscribers home. Pure crap.
Why do I have to pay $5.99 for the app if I already subscribe to the news paper account? I subscribe to the Washington Post and the New York Times and don’t have to pay to use the app to access the “paper.”
I am not sure the the latest version is actually an improvement over the previous one. Main complaints are: (i) why in the world with the “Main news” section have so many articles on the Spurs? All of those belong solely in the sports section. It makes no sense for users looking for latest news to have to wade thru a Main section cluttered with Spurs articles. (ii) The “Main News” section, instead of showing stories from today’s print edition, contains a lot of really old articles (the same ones I have been seeing for weeks). For example, today (Jan 21) there is still being carried in the Main News section a Jan 2 article on the first baby born in S.A. on New Year’s Day and another old article on an old Mayor - why in the world???
I have taken 7 day week delivery for 50+years. Although it is now a leftist publication I continue to subscribe. Only the Sports and Faith sections keep me eager to read.
No such thing as being able to see what is happening NOW. If you go to “top news” one sees a few local news items then an ungodly number of sports, food, etc. NO national news whatsoever. A second grader could have come up with a better format. Obits are at least 2 days behind. That’s up to date for sure! These issues are on my iPhone and iPad. Sorry but I don’t walk around with a laptop in my back pocket. The sight is total rubbish.
Moving to a UI consisting of large tiles makes scanning stories to decide which ones to read much more tedious. On my iPad Pro the home page Top News section displayed the complete tile for just one story. What a waste of screen space. No longer having a split view with story titles on one side and the text of the selected article on the other side also makes using the app more of a chore. There is also no visual queue which stories have been opened. Since stories appear in multiple sections it makes it a pain to quickly spot stories that have not been opened. I’d go back to the old design if I could. Please add an option for a mode to present stories in a list format w/o the picture tiles that has a visual queue to mark stories that have been opened.
Pretty lame to just remove a major feature and then offer no refund for a year long subscription.
I li ke the format. It is difficult from your on line edition which because I’m going blind at 96 and can no longer control the size of the script. Tom Jr
No STARS to this app. It crashed immediately upon opening from iPhone and then when I tried to set up an account it rejected my print subscription number. The email that popped up after it was rejected is not even valid and when I emailed it to get my "valid" print subscription number, the email was returned as invalid! Seriously? If you call the phone number you get idiots too that don't know anything. So much for that. I think I will just unsubscribe now. Such a waste. Half the time my paper is late or not delivered and when I call to report they say it will be delivered but it never is.
Thanks to SA EXPRESS news app I now know what’s going on in the city and state I live in. I read it everywhere and anytime of the day. And it’s well organized & that’s why love this app.
