Stick to main website, no difference

Same as main website

New app

Not impressed! Now it's just like other newspaper apps with too many ads. I lament the loss of the crosswords & comics too - 2 of the things that made the old app unique. I will persevere with the new one for a couple of weeks to see if it grows on me, but I doubt it. Will probably end up deleting it.

Star Touch was Best

When you released Star Touch, it was n incredibly fresh blast of air. Innovative, easily navigatable, sharp, clean look...everything lacking in pretty much every other app/website. Now you've returned to mundane and plain. Major setback. Lousy decision. Disappointed.
