Travel problems.

I enjoy the Australian each day online using the app. The great advantage of this system of receiving daily news can work as well overseas apart from when unable to download due to lack of internet or brief internet availability. For example in Cuba one hour of poor internet access cost a CUC ($4.00 approx). To read later offline each headline had to be downloaded separately. At other destinations where internet is unavailable you cannot access back copies at a later date. On cruise liners for example internet is very expensive. Accessing the Australian in one hit would be preferable, rather than methodically downloading each article which occasionally has mysteriously not been saved for later reading. It looks like this problem has been discussed in other communication by different readers. Thanks.

Hello, you will be able to use your mobile data in the next app release to download your app edition if WiFi is not available. We hope this helps. Regards, the Australian

Crossword is so much worse

I see numerous feedback entries with the same complaint, especially for iPad, where you have destroyed the functionality of the crossword, and I agree with them all. Your responses are just a bland comment that it has been updated for ease of use on all platforms.
I would like to have seen a more positive response that you will work on correcting this downdate.
Please speak to someone who does crosswords and try and understand the comments so you can direct your developer to make the right corrections. Allow us to remove the keyboard if we have an external one connected. Show us both the across and down clues to enable quick reference when doing the crossword. When I change the settings to stop auto-notification of errors, I want that setting to stay every day - at present I have to remember to change it back.
When I leave the crossword and return later, the app overwrites my entries with random letters!! Now, that makes it hard if I cannot complete in one session!!
Please understand the complaints and fix this. Was quite good and is now terrible.

Missing functionality

The latest version is still unstable.
Crashes 10 times on startup. Deleted the app and start again. Does not crash the whole ipad anymore but still crashes swapping between articles a d in particular on startup. Seems content related. Sometimes worse then others. Internet not a problem.

I used to be able to email my blind mate who could read articles using his reader direct from the newspaper as read. Now it puts it in a box which is useless as you cannot do anything with it.
No point sending a link as he cannot navigate.
Define is back.
Clip does not always work if there are tables and sometimes does not work at all...seems to be at the bottom of the page. Go figure.
Yes, you can email, but with 7 steps instead of 1.
Comments just buzz around on my ipad but sometimes stall unless log in and out.
Now limited to 21 instead of 28.
Comment editing works ONLY when replying in review all comments mode. Never on a prime entry.
Content sharing with the times can be spurious which is not up to normal standard of writing and editing.
E-mailing the actual article direct from the main news pain would be great if it was the article.

If we did not lose functionality i would say great job, cleaner and faster.
