Pop up ads in epaper
My opinion of the app until recently. I like the epaper as it is a replica of the physical paper, I can see all the articles and also ads notices etc as if I am reading the physical copy as well as access to back issues etc without cluttering the house.
Unfortunately my pleasure has recently been significantly diluted by a pop up ad. It pops up every 4 pages and there is no way of stopping it. So my rating will now be reduced significantly. I am posting a new comment reflecting this.
Over Reliance on Gestures
As another reviewer has said, this app is difficult to use. One moment the UI is displaying the paper in a split screen mode with the sections listed on the left and the article on the right and then after trying to scroll down the article the sections on the left disappear. The design needs to be rethought and I think dropping support for some swipe gestures would make it more usable. Swiping should be only for navigating between articles.
It would be nice if the app allowed commenting and provided notifications when someone replied to a comment.
Minor bug fixes
Great to see that this app is being maintained more often. The January bug fixes are minor compared to the major new version in November.
Hope they add automatic downloading in a future update and I'll then give it the full 5 stars.
For now, the best way to read the ePaper, particularly on an iPad or the larger screen iPhones.
Content is king and that's why the professional and reliable writing (well, for the most part!) makes the Irish times a worthy subscription.
