A backward step

The update is frustrating. Change for the sake of it. The previous version was simple enough and worked. The banners across the top were easy. There’s too much stuff. Reading the news is no longer a pleasant experience. It’s not easy or intuitive to use. I couldn’t even find the tab to download the digital paper version this morning. The update makes reading the news an effort, not something that I look forward to, or do out of habit anymore. I certainly don’t just flick on the iPad for a news update as often as previously. Can’t remember the last time I reviewed an app, but I had to say something about this update in the vain hope that it will be sorted out!

Want sports news? Too bad you get it anyway!

I don’t know how “Based on what you read” 3 out 5 of the top listed ones are articles about sport since I don’t look at ANY sports articles. Why does sport come up in my front screen before real news like “Coronavirus”, “Brisbane” and other topics that are actually news and why can’t I unselect “Sport” completely. Sport is not news to everyone, I don’t care about the stupid behaviour of the latest overpaid footballer, I’d rather know about actual new in Brisbane before I ignore the sports section. Why is it so high on the list if it’s usually at the back of a hard copy newspaper. Please fix this or I’ll be canceling my subscription too.

Backward Step

The app is missing useful functionality from the previous version such as greying out articles already read, you cannot discern which articles you have read if you go in and out of the app over the course of the day.

Again, there is no ability to search for an article in the mobile app.

Too much screen realestate is taken up by the oversized image with every article, there is a sense of having to scroll interminably to read articles and then just give up as too onerous and cumbersome.
