Dose what it says on the tin! but thats just that having to pinch and zoom can get tiresome where other newspaper apps its seemless. Also in a future update to be able bo but just one copy of the paper instead of buying a subscribtion would be good!

On the latest iOS cannot see the Canvey version

I have this app on two iPads one on iOS 11, and an older on on the previous version. The old iOS shows all 3 versions of the paper, while on iOS 11 you can only see Basildon and Southend. As we live in Castle Point but not Canvey, it is necessary to read either Southend or Canvey versions and skim the other other one to ensure I don’t miss anything relevant for Castle Point.
Could you please investigate this discrepancy.

Poor app, lack of interest from publishers

Very dated app. You also have to enter an Astute Card number to be able to use the app on multiple platforms. The publishers (Newsquest) - even the editor himself - show contempt for the reader by not even bothering to reply to emails. It's still not sorted out after more than two months! It's no wonder that circulations of local papers are falling; and with an app of this quality and from the attitude of the editor downwards, this newspaper deserves to fail.
