Great read, but on app pages difficult to turn

I get all my local information from The News and like the balance of articles.
My gripe is the stubbornness of pages to turn using the app on my iPad. Sometimes a swipe works straight away, but sometimes it takes multiple swipes to read the next page. Any solution?

New version really is even better

Ignore the bad reviews about the new 2019 version, it really is even better than before. Like others, I struggled to find the full digital edition of the old version, when all I could see was the Homes edition, but I just scrolled down, and there they all are, the beautiful digital editions.

New version seems better in every way, and even the pages display faster. If you can’t get in, try scrolling down!
