I love this app - but after last update it kicks me out

I love this app. The way you can pick the pages you want, or swipe through. Since the last update it tries to update for the new day and then kicks me out. I go back in but still get thrown out. I have tried deleting the app from the iPad but frustratingly seems bust. Waiting for new update.

Latest news shows only old news

I buy the Star every day but would have to buy a subscription to get it online. This app only has old news

The star

It’s disgusting, it won’t download latest editions, I’m going to cancel my subscriptions unless you get it sorted, tried deleting it and reloading but still the same, why can’t it be left as it was.
Absolute rubbish.

Same again, will not download any editions of the star, getting really annoyed with it all, could you please get it sorted,

D. Smith.
