Content is good. App is not so good. There is no obvious way to turn off background refresh. Background refresh stays on even when the global setting is turned off! This will drain your battery. If you want to check it out for yourself, go to settings, then battery, and look at the activity report. This app is always in the top 2 or 3 for battery usage. I will probably cancel my subscription when the annual renewal comes up because of this issue.
Very hard to sign on every time..
Should be able to choose Breaking News notification alerts only, not “DINNER PLANS? - this vegan cafe is back” (actual “Breaking News” notification)
This is a terrible app. Don’t even try to read the news here. It is worthless.
Having the same problems others saying. Not usable on an iPad as it only fills 1/4 of screen and even BLOWING IT UP is not readable? Why has this not been fixed?
Recent update has made app unusable. Crashes every time it opens. Since you are going more and more to online paper, please continue to make the online version more user friendly. Particularly the e-edition.
If it is your desire to be aggravated on a daily basis, subscribe to this sorry example of a news reporting organization. The availability of sections changes daily and trying to navigates the pages is an example of futility. Right in the middle of an article, the pages will just decide to fail, sending you back to your screen home page. I have learned, over the last few years, that the State newspaper is a horrible example of objective reporting with no concern for customer service.
Please go back to the other app. I cannot read this one as it is on the right hand side of my iPad and is 1/4 size of the screen. I called your office and they told me they could not help me. He said wait a few days and it would get better. That was 5 days ago and it has NOT IMPROVED! I am paying for something I cannot read. Get with it!!!
This app was tweaked several weeks back for the much, much worse. I have read The State for 70 years, the last 15 on my iPad. I liked the facsimile of the printed newspaper. Since the most recent tweak, it has been a rare day that anything worked well. No online paper again today. Much more of this and you will lose another reader. Get it right and smooth or we are gone.
E edition does not seem to work on an iPad. I want to be able or read the news each morning without having to go through a computer workout.
