The app is so poorly built that I can’t believe it comes from Israeli engineers who are usually the most competent software developers. Even though I am a paid subscribed user, the app constantly asks me to login when clicking on articles. An article catches my eye and then I am blocked from reading it.
I have had a Haaretz subscription for many years. Thought I would try the app. Right for the start it was clearly not the way to go. Before I got any news I was swamped with ads. (I definitely do not read Haaretz to view ads!) Then I was asked to log in. But when I tried to click that button nothing happens. This app is not a masterpiece of Israeli technology! I’ll be returning to the old fashioned web version. Very disappointed.
The new app is a nightmare. I paid for the monthly subscription on the iphone but the app never recognizes it. And there is no way to sign in. Then it gets you into an infinite ad loop where you cant get back. I’m deleting and really disappointed that they decided to “fix” what was not broken
By early 2022 this app became very unstable. Articles would load and suddenly disappear. Articles would load and then I would get a pop up saying I need to have a subscription (when I’m already signed in with my subscription.) I enjoyed reading Haaretz, but I canceled my subscription because the app is too unreliable.
Everything I get from friends applauds Israel’s every move. Since no nation is perfect, I am now hearing about Israel worts and all. Does not make me love the nation any less.
It’s impossible To read even the headlines. Cookies and interruptions to coerce to get a subscription to the newspaper. Very annoying
I bought my subscription to read about events in Israel. To read those articles, I must first get rid of advertising. But the ads do not stop. So I rarely have an easy read, sometimes no read at all. Yet, I need complete news coverage.
Not subscribed yet. Enjoying my free articles. But I am hooked on the timely and fact finding news reported by the authors. Human interest articles are so enlightening. It seems I learn so much about the area. Having friends living just north ofTel Aviv keeps me glued to the content.
I bought the yearly digital subscription for while I am out of the country. It is constantly updating what's happening in the country. My only down side is the constant ads. Whats the point in spending so much money if its ads that i have to always ex out of. This could use a little work.
So many ads , and the only way to read any news is to pay 12.99 per month. NOPE.
