Needs improvements

Firstly, please do something about my music being cut off whenever I enter the app. All of the other apps have no issues keeping my music playing in the background - why is this still happening for ST?

Next, the news coverage. I don’t even think I’m getting half of the news available in the hard copy newspaper, at least not by scrolling through the tabs. That’s not the way to go if you’re trying to encourage people to jump on the digital wagon.

And then there’s the general interface. I won’t even talk about how buggy the app is and how frequently it stops loading or crashes altogether. It’s design is dated and doesn’t seem like it’s built for lengthy reading. I’m a subscriber to NYT as well and their interface is much classier and inviting. It actually makes me feel like I’m reading an ebook.

Slow loading after subscription

Before subscription, the speed was acceptable. After subscription, every time start the app takes longer to load. Probably is authenticating. One improvement suggestion: auto logout another device when we try to sign into a new device. As many times when am at home I use my tablet. When am out am using my phone. And often I forget to sign out at home, and cannot then sign in at my phone. I think this is a feature many users would like to have.

Consistent failure to restore subscription after being logout

I have been consistently being log out and unable to restore my subscription. The message was transaction failed. Try another time. This is causing a lot of frustration. After going to Strait times, they said since I subscribed using iTunes, they can’t fix my problem 4 days after I asked for help. In the iTunes, I can’t even find where to look for support. All app support leads me back to Strait times and back to square 1. If this doesn’t get sorted out I will terminate my subscription. Doesn’t make sense if I am paying but all I can view are the free for all news. Might as well I go goggle news that I won’t be charge a cent but has similar content here.
