Still crashes

Even after the recent update it still freezes and/or crashes many times a day. Really frustrating. Pls fix this.

Developer Response ,


Please be advised that we have been experiencing technical issues with the Ottawa Citizen Mobile App which may have resulted in consistent crashing. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

The issues have since been resolved with a new version that offers a seamless experience. You can now download the new version 4.4.2 through App Store.

We value your feedback and thank you for your continued support and readership.

Why does it Crash so much!

In today’s newspaper, 24-Mar-2020, page A2, you say you have a brand new app very slick and fast. I ensured that I have the latest update and it still crashes a lot. Case in point, try to go to the Letters to the Editor....bam! It crashes and closes. Really!?!?
