Was good now terrible


Why in gods name do you have to put that stupid live podcast band across the bottom of the screen. It automatically pops up on my screenMaking it impossible to read news articles. Plus you put the stupid NEDS ADVERT on there. I understand you need to put on ADS but seriously do you have to put it right across the bottom of the banner so that you cant actually navigate to anything. Used to love this app and used to love this newS service. TERRIBLE

Updated review. After a few weeks I still think its a dreadful app that is several steps backwards. They seem to have added a few more bugs recently as when returning to the app it often fails to load articles and needs to be restarted.

Banners and ads make it an unpleasant reading experience. With other newspaper apps that are far better I will probably cancel this subscription.

I downloaded the new app to continue my access to the digital edition of The West Australian. I have barely been able to access the newspaper since. The app crashes almost every time it is opened and when it does open, it is difficult for me to navigate to the newspaper tab and download the latest edition. I have the app because I have poor eyesight and can no longer read the hardcopy edition.
