The app is just ok as far as things go. Not horrible but far from great. My first ask is dark mode!! Reading at night is hard on the eyes.
Include dark mode option? Please consider doing that soon.
This app performs atrociously. It is slow, a battery hog, with lots of lag and response to touch input is painfully slow and jerky. It's far better to use Safari and the paper's web site. Reading the reviews, it seems clear that the Strib doesn't have much interest in this app or the paying customers (@ $200 per year for a subscription) that use it. They should delete it and direct users to the website.
I can no longer see the comments. There is a disclaimer to read but comments do not show and there are comments on the article. The disclaimer doesn’t have a box to say it’s been read and by clicking that comments would become visible!
We desperately need dark mode. The white background is painfully bright.
App is crashing after opening. Please fix! It freezes when you scroll.
I’ve had this app for quite a while and have been very pleased until a couple of weeks ago when it started freezing up every time I attempt to use it. At best it is very, very slow, but lately I’m lucky if I can read one article before it freezes. I am extremely frustrated because I just renewed my subscription for a year and now I can’t read the paper online because this app won’t work properly. Please fix this issue ASAP.
Every time I open this app, it takes about 20-30 seconds before scrolling works. Then it will suddenly stop scrolling for another 10-20 seconds. Even when it is scrolling, it’s so choppy that it hurts. This didn’t use to happen. Use to be smooth and responsive. And I’m running the app on an iPad Pro, which should have plenty of power to handle it. No excuse for this.
I’m not sure what happened, but scrolling through stories on a brand new iPad Pro or iPhone Pro is choppy and sometimes freezes up for seconds at a time. I’d like to see you get it together and produce a high quality app, especially since I’m a paying subscriber.
Might be related to ads trying to load. Too frustrating to continue using it.
