Viewing offline not working

This app let’s you save editions to your device, however the app fails to load, or takes several minutes to load, a locally stored edition if you do not have an internet connection, or a poor internet connection. Which rather defeats the purpose.

The content is great. I really want to support The Saturday Paper. Please, can you fix this?

Great paper, useless app

I love the Sat Paper, but this app is more or less unusable offline, as described by all the other reviews. Since iOS12 it seems to crash constantly, even when online. Was never a great experience in any case - essentially a PDF reader. Is weird that Schwartz haven’t bothered to fix what are simple technical glitches after so much feedback and so much time. In my opinion, if you are not prepared to invest in this app it would be better to just remove it from the App Store. I imagine it is harming your brand - surely you would do better to just promote an accessible PDF download for offline digital access. Pretty sure this is the only App Store review I have ever been motivated to write.

Rubbish application

An appalling, poorly written application that has NEVER worked sensibly or smoothly. Despite a continuing subscription, I have to wrangle with the app to access my weekly edition. Up to today, using various abstruse methods, I have been able to wrestle the app to yield and give me access. Today, not so. I deleted the app and attempted repeatedly to download the current version but my iPad would not connect to start the download. A woeful experience, frustrating in the extreme. Spend some money and fix this monstrous time waster.
